Britain’s Bulldog Breed Bite New World Order

Britain’s Bulldog Breed Take a Bite Out of the New World Order

The British have voted for national sovereignty and independence and against the Money Power and the EU's Tower of Babel. Thank God!
By Michael Hoffman

No people can sustain themselves on repeated defeats. On June 23, 2016 the British gave our people a victory that uplifts morale in America and throughout the western world: they have defied the elites and voted to leave the Brussels-based European Union (EU). This is beautiful for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the British media trotted out a corpus of “expert opinion” ordering the flinty citizens of the island nation to stay in the EU for the sake of consumerism and globalism. Money was held aloft as the supreme motive for remaining, and the ones raising this banner of mammon were from the “financial services industry,” which is a media-euphemism for the usurious gang who dominate almost every western country.

In Russia, under Vladimir Putin, the highest value is placed not on  the economy but rather on the Church, the land and the people. Due to their loyalty to these ancient Slavic priorities, Russians are libeled, financially sanctioned and threatened with war by NATO and Hillary Clinton. The British meanwhile are beginning to return to the venerable verities championed by populists like Mr. Putin. 

Under the laws of the European Union’s super-state, the tiny island nation had to admit any number of immigrants, no matter how large, from member nations. This includes millions of angry and alienated Muslim youth in EU member countries like France and Germany. Polls repeatedly revealed that this deluge was the driving force behind the vote for a British exit (“Brexit”) from Brussels.  The English and Welsh chose their land and their people   national sovereignty and independence   over the Money Power and the EU's Tower of Babel. Thank God!

American Indians are praised for considering how any action they take will impact the next seven generations. This stems from the realization that we don’t own the future  we are only custodians of it for the benefit of our posterity. There is today a Britain and a United States because our ancestors chose to create pathways for our preservation. When Angela Merkel, the gentile-Zionist agent who leads Germany, last year opened the borders of the nation to an invasion by more than one million immigrants from the Middle East and western Asia, with her treason she was spitting on a thousand years of stewardship by the ancestors of the Germans who had sacrificed, fought and died to preserve the Teutonic people and their homeland.

Merkel’s Germany is precisely the deracinated consumer utopia which the Cryptocracy has decided is the future of the United States and Britain. Yet against all odds, Britain’s “bulldog breed” responded at the ballot box with a howl of rage and frustration against their elite Overlords and the “experts” who dispensed hypnotic cues on how to think and vote. 

Here in America the television networks and print media are routinely telling the plebes that their skepticism toward Hillary Clinton, trans-gender bathrooms and amnesty for illegal aliens, is a horrible sin. My, my, the “sinful” British appear to have paid no attention to their would-be moral masters in Britain, and increasingly Americans are defying the mainstream media’s demonization of traditional values and common sense.

Lest we conflate a victory in one great battle in Britain with a decisive defeat of Satan’s kingdom in the West, we ought to examine the bigger picture, which entails factoring the Zionists' plans for Britain and Europe. They have a long memory and forgiveness forms no part of their gestalt. They view Britain and Europe as hereditarily and ineradicably tainted by their former resistance to Judaism. Influential Orthodox rabbis have let the cat out of the bag by smirking at the growing presence of Sunni-Wahhabist Islamic terrorists scourging Britain and Europe. Inevitably these rabbis cite the  unforgivable" Christian resistance to Judaism in the past, as justification for gloating over the immigration invasion, and self-extinguishing rates of abortion, contraception, suicide and euthanasia in Europe and Britain.

One of the main Zionist outlets for their undying hatred is the controlled media of the West, where Europeans and the British are perpetually targeted with movies, TV shows and publications portraying them as moral lepers, fiendishly sadistic mass murderers and in general possessed of a tainted genetic stock. Judaics alone emerge from this media fever-swamp as angelic bearers of a heritage of saintly goodness. The late Prof. Tony Martin informed this writer that when he taught the history of the massive Judaic role in the trans-Atlantic black slave trade to his mostly white classes at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, the Judaic students would indignantly protest that their people were never involved in any evil on that scale; such was the extent of their having been shielded from the scrutiny and moral opprobrium with which gentiles have been lashed for decades.

The relentless negative stereotyping amounts to mental colonization followed by a kind of mental genocide: the commitment by our youth to withhold births of “more wicked whites.” Demographic statistics testify to the efficacy of the media onslaught.

No doubt the Establishment was banking on the inculcation of sufficient levels of this self-hate in numbers large enough to ensure the defeat of Britain's vote on leaving the European Union. A miracle occurred however, and it was the Cryptocracy that was defeated, in this round at least.

The next battle consists of building on the defiance. This entails a revival of the family and the absolute necessity of three children or more per married couple, with offspring “trained up in the way they should go,”and populist political parties free of the networks of masonic secret societies, usury bankers and multinational corporations.

As long as we breath there is hope. Today let us revel in sweet success and chase defeatism from our ranks, in gratitude for the bite of the British bulldog.

Massacre in Orlando: Morality and Mortality

The Massacre in Orlando 

By Michael Hoffman

Orlando terrorist Omar Mir Seddique Mateen was licensed by the state of Florida to carry firearms. His rifle may even have been part of his job. Since 2007 he has been employed by G4S Secure Solutions, a “global” security firm that provided protection to the London Olympics. Until recently, G4S had an Israeli section with 8,000 employees. G4S states on its website that Mateen was “off-duty at the time of the incident.” The Establishment media have shown little interest in reporting on G4S. Why?

Another Alibi for the Gun-Grabbers

Mateen’s access to firearms appears to be the same access enjoyed by tens of thousands of the hired guns who corporations and millionaires employ to ensure their own safety. How then can this be a case for another call for gun control? Hillary Clinton does not want to deny “assault” rifles to the people who protect her, or David Rockefeller, or who guard the Olympics; she isn’t seeking a total restriction on AR-15s. She and her wealthy cronies will always have bodyguards who legally possess high powered “military-style” weapons. She seeks to disarm the people, in whose name the Democrats claim they are working. The peasants are to be denied the weapons which the licensed agents of Her Majesty possess. 

This is the path to a police state, which we saw at work in the now largely forgotten 1993 government massacre of 82 Americans at Waco, Texas which was ordered by Mrs. Clinton’s husband, and in in 1995 in Oklahoma City when a cabal of government agents and patsies bombed the Alfred Murrah building, killing 168 people. Congress then passed numerous laws restricting our freedoms and granting greater latitude to the police to violate our rights, although that was small beer compared to the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks and the enactment of the misnamed “Patriot Act.” 

Lady Macbeth’s scapegoating of firearms is part of the script. She prefers to focus less on the Sunni-Salafist Muslim connection, inspired by Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabist theology, which is the ideological engine of the Islamic State (Mateen traveled to Saudi Arabia twice. Imagine if he had gone to Iran instead — sanctions would be demanded instantly). 

The Occult Dimension

With cross hairs fixed on the “pulse” of the nation on June 12, people died at Pulse, a saloon which caters to homosexuals. Two days before, a popular singer was assassinated a few miles from the “Pulse.” S.K. Bain, the subject of the book, Most Dangerous, writes in his blog that Orlando is "roughly 50 miles from Sarasota, Florida, where, on the morning of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush—whose brother Jeb was governor of the state at the time—sat in an elementary classroom presiding over a black-mass-in-disguise, to which Mr. Bain devoted an entire chapter in his book, 9/11 as Mass Ritual. (For the uninitiated, Google ‘The Pet Goat.”).

Bain states:

... that “unrelated” shooting of Christina Grimmie, a former contestant on “The Voice”, in Orlando two days prior, on June 10th following a performance with the band, ahem, named “Before You Exit”...Unrelated perhaps, but those who study these sorts of things are well familiar with the established pattern of foreshadowing a mass attack with a smaller incident in the exact same locale....The surname Grimmie, by the way, originally derives from the Norse-Viking “Grimr”, meaning “The Fierce One”, who Lucifer most certainly is.

June 12th was the birthday of both David Rockefeller and former U.S. President George H.W. Bush.  A Luciferian mass sacrifice and birthday celebration all mixed up into one—now that’s truly diabolical. ...Skeptical on that last point? Chapter 33 of Most Dangerous: A True Story is entitled “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” and details the tragic events of July 6, 2013, on which Asiana Airlines Flight OZ214 (yes, Oz) crashed at the San Francisco International Airport and “Le Train D’Enfer” (“the Train from Hell”) derailed in Lac Mégantic, Quebec, inundating the small community in a sea of burning crude oil. July 6th also just happens to be the birthday of one George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States. (End quote from Bain).

Investigative Leads

If this writer were tasked with investigating the Orlando massacre we would be closely examining the circumstance of an Orlando police officer “exchanging fire” with the terrorist either prior to his entry to the club, or soon after he entered it.

The New York Times reported on June 14: "Soon after Mr. Mateen first opened fire, he was confronted by an armed security guard who was an off-duty police officer, said John Mina, the Orlando police chief, at a news conference Monday morning. They exchanged gunfire. The security guard was then joined by an unknown number of police officers, the first to arrive on the scene."  Times, June 14, p. A1

Is this not strange? An unknown number of officers arrived on the scene soon after" the terrorist opened fire and they did nothing to shoot or apprehend the killer until 5 a.m.  three hours later?

We would also be researching everything there is to know about G4S Secure Solutions and how, despite their boast that they thoroughly check their employees to be certain they have impeccable backgrounds, the Muslim Mateen, who had been repeatedly investigated by the FBI for terror connections, had been working for G4S from 2007 until the morning of June 12.

What type of work did G4S’s 8,000 Israeli employees undertake, both in occupied Palestine, the Mideast (Saudi Arabia in particular) and the US and Europe? Was Mateen any part of those missions?

Koran attacked while the Talmud is sacrosanct

On the morning of June 12 FOX News featured a former NYPD detective named Solomon who blamed the Orlando massacre on the Koran. “Just read it, you’ll see” he told the FOX television audience. What if, in the aftermath of an Israeli massacre of Arabs, this writer were to indict the Babylonian Talmud on national TV? We would be hounded off the airwaves in short order. 

Morality and Mortality

What has happened to the America we have known and loved? Mass murder seems to be the order of the day. Shadowy occult forces and symbolism often accompany the horror. America was intended to be God’s New Jerusalem, but beginning in the 1970s Americans began to chop up the defenseless human beings which that same God had sent down into the wombs of millions of mothers. More than 30 million of them chose to massacre their own children and that holocaust, though largely hidden from view, is on-going.

There is a trend on the Left to laud John Brown, the antebellum abolitionist who executed farmers in Kansas in 1856.  In 1859 he led the terror attack on Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), perpetrating more deaths. Brown’s famous terror slogan, “To purge this land with blood” embodied his belief that guilty Americans must suffer bloody terror until slavery was abolished. He believed that the enslavement of black people was a crime that could only be expunged with the blood of an American nation that had condoned slavery. This terrorist theology (Brown was a New Light Calvinist) strikes contemporary Leftist academics as a reasonable one and Brown is a hero to many. 

Few Americans in 2016 would dare to draw from Brown’s blood purge maxim a parallel with the crime of abortion. Anyone who stood today in the media and said that for the lives of millions of unborn babies, America must be purged with blood and suffer terror, would be labeled a monster. Yet it certainly looks like this is what is coming to pass, and the attempts to pretend otherwise and resume the somnambulistic consumer routine of our daily lives, appears to be futile.

49th anniversary of Israeli massacre of US sailors

 The largely unknown, deliberate Israeli attack on the US Navy

By Michael Hoffman

On June 8, 1967 Israeli war planes, in an unprovoked attack, struck the USS Liberty, a US Navy intelligence ship,  which was clearly marked and flying the US flag. For hours the Israelis bombed and strafed the ship, killing 34 American sailors and wounding 174.

President Lyndon Johnson, his administration and the major media managed to cover-up Israeli responsibility for this act of war. To this day the public does not know the truth and the mainstream media will not report it. The slaughter is seldom memorialized.

For facts and documents on the massacre the USS Liberty Veterans Association has created a website. Please visit it today:

This memorial is located in public space at the harbor at Rochester, New York (on the west side of the Genesee River, across from the marina). 

Even though the perpetrator of the massacre of 34 American sailors (the Israeli government) is not mentioned on the monument, US Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declined to attend the dedication ceremony for it. His refusal is part of the pattern of disgraceful neglect, willful amnesia and falsification which has long surrounded this largely hidden chapter of Americas military history and the saga of its unsung heroes.

Muhammad Ali: Politically Incorrect Quotes

The Media’s Saint of the Diversity Religion was anything but

When Muhammad Ali announced that he would not fight in Viet Nam because, "No Viet Cong ever called me nigger" I could see the genius in what he said. In those seven words he furnished every black man in America a credible reason not to submit to conscription. Our first reaction was to hope that some NASCAR driver up for the draft in North Carolina would refuse because, "No Viet Cong ever called me a redneck" (back in the 1960s "redneck" was a term of abuse, not a proud signifier as it is today).

Ali was no kind of politically correct person but due to the Establishment media's well-known tactic of omission, his c.v. has been airbrushed and he's been remade into a certified saint of the Diversity Religion. Journalist Jim Goad has penned the best antidote to the falsification by excavating some choice quotes from the boxing champion (our personal favorite is this clip). The following is excerpted from Mr. Goad’s column in Taki's Magazine online:

Because we live in an era much weaker and more sensitive than it was during Ali’s prime, his death is being eulogized with the sort of solemn, sanctimony-addled, weak-tea, low-T, hagiographic twaddle we’ve come to expect from neutered zombie bloggers on antidepressants. Just as mainstream history has Photoshopped all the warts off Nelson Mandela and MLK, Ali is now strictly framed as an inspirational figure who “spoke out against racism.” (Certainly they don’t mean the time he condemned interracial sex before a cheering crowd of Klansmen?) 

The sad truth is that by shellacking history with a paintbrush soaked in modern pieties, they’re suppressing how hilariously insensitive Ali was. For example, after being forced into an impromptu photo session with The Beatles in 1964, he reportedly turned to an associate and asked, “So who were those little faggots?” 

From 1964 to 1980, Clay/Ali gifted the world with a string of spectacularly insensitive comments that would get any modern white man socially exiled to Pluto for daring to utter their equivalent: 

“Integration is wrong. The white people don’t want integration. I don’t believe in forcing it….” —1964 interview with the Louisville Courier-Journal 

“Every intelligent person wants his child to look like him. I’m sad because I [don’t] want to blot out my race and lose my beautiful identity? Chinese love Chinese—they love their little slanted-eyed, pretty brown-skinned babies. Pakistanis love their culture. Jewish people love their culture. Lotta Catholics don’t wanna marry nothing but Catholics, they want their religion to stay the same. Who wanna spot up yourself and kill your race? You a hater of your people if you don’t want to stay who you are.” —1971 BBC interview with the portentously named Michael Parkinson 

“A black man should be killed if he’s messing with a white woman. And white men have always done that….And not just white men—black men, too. We will kill you, and the brothers who don’t kill you will get their behinds whipped and probably get killed themselves if they let it happen and don’t do nothin’ about it.” 
1975 interview with Playboy

“You know the entire power structure is Zionist. They control America; they control the world.” —1980 interview with India Today 

At the 1960 Rome Olympics, Ali told a reporter: “To me, the U.S.A. is still the best country in the world, counting yours. It may be hard to eat sometimes, but anyhow I ain’t fighting alligators and living in a mud hut.”

After Ali spent months training in Zaire to fight George Foreman, a reporter asked him his impressions of Africa.

Talmud inspires Israeli war crimes

How the Talmud inspires Israeli war crimes

By Michael Hoffman

Here’s a Talmudic lesson from the New York Times, May 30, 2016, p. A4:

Politicians in the Israeli state say the Talmud justifies gunning down a thirteen-year-old Palestinian girl holding a pair of scissors:

"Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, the chief of staff of the Israeli military, recently caused a stir when he told an audience of high school students that he would not want a soldier to empty a magazine on a Palestinian girl of 13 holding a pair of scissors. He was attacked by rightist politicians who advocate a policy based on the Talmudic lesson 'Whoever comes to slay you, slay him first.”

"Maj. Gen. Yair Golan, the deputy chief of the military, caused an uproar in a speech for Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day this month, when he said he discerned disturbing trends in Israeli society that reminded him of processes that led to the rise of Nazi Germany. New York Times, May 30, 2016, p. A4.

Obama in Hiroshima

Obama in Hiroshima: The Right Thing to Do

By Michael Hoffman

Neocon super-patriots are outraged that a US President would lament the American massacre of tens of thousands of civilians at Hiroshima and by implication, in the Japanese city of Nagasaki as well (the latter was the capital of Catholicism in the Far East at the time it was incinerated). General Curtis LeMay’s air force, using conventional bombs, had earlier incinerated the largely wooden city of Tokyo, killing some 100,000 civilians. These massacres were supposed to be reprisals for Japan’s attack on an American military base at Pearl Harbor.

The signature alibi for the atomic barbarism is that it “shortened the war and saved American lives.” In 1985, while a reporter working in California and writing a story on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I spoke on the phone with Walter Trohan, a former journalist for Colonel Robert McCormick’s populist newspaper, the Chicago Tribune. Trohan covered the White House. He had been close to all of the American presidents from FDR to Reagan. He knew the lesser fry too, such as Admiral William Leahy, Franklin Roosevelt’s chief of staff. Mr. Trohan informed this writer, with some indignation in his voice, even though the incident he was about to relate had occurred 42 years before, that Admiral Leahy told him as early as 1943 that the Japanese had been trying to surrender to US forces. He warned Trohan that if he printed that classified information before the war ended, Trohan would be imprisoned on a charge of espionage. 

Trohan and his boss McCormick sat on the story until the Sunday in 1945 after Japan had been blasted with atomic bombs and had surrendered unconditionally. Then they printed the facts on the front page of the Chicago Tribune. From 1943 onward the government of Japan had sought a negotiated peace that would leave Emperor Hirohito on his throne and a caretaker Japanese government in Tokyo intact. All Japanese armed forces would be surrendered and American soldiers and Marines would enter Japan without a shot being fired. This was to be the conditional surrender.

After this peace deal was rebuffed by President Roosevelt, tens of thousands of US Marines and sailors, and hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians were killed, sacrificed on the altar of Roosevelt’s doctrine of “unconditional surrender.”

Franklin Roosevelt was the presidential criminal who had allowed Pearl Harbor to be attacked. He knew in advance that the attack was coming in December 1941. Incredibly, nearly 75 years later much of the US intelligence on Pearl Harbor remains classified and not subject to Freedom of Information Act disclosure. What is “our” government hiding? Much of what can be pieced together was compiled by Robert Stinnett in his indispensable book, Day of Deceit; also worth reading is James Perloff’s report, “Pearl Harbor: Hawaii was Surprised; FDR Was Not,” in New American magazine, Dec. 7, 2015.

The Palestinians in particular and Muslims in general are students of history. They have noted that the U.S. and its Allies resorted to any means available, no matter how monstrous, to defeat what the Allies considered to be their “monstrous” foes, Germany and Japan. Terrorism against German troops (“partisan warfare”) as well as civilian populations (the civilian center of every major German city was bombed, and in many cases fire-bombed by British and US forces), was a routine occurrence. The goal was to exterminate, as far as possible, the men, woman and children of Germany and Japan.

When Palestinians shoot and bomb Israeli troops, or ISIS militants target French theaters and Belgian subway stations, they are merely adopting the same tactics the Allies used during the “Good War.” This is the terror contagion which we, in our boundless arrogance, have spread.

However cynical Mr. Obama’s ulterior motives for visiting Hiroshima may be, the fact is that his visit should serve as a reassessment of the Allied doctrine of justified terrorism inflicted on civilian populations residing in nations with which the US is at war. Otherwise, we can expect no less inhuman treatment from the Sunni Wahhabist/Salafist Muslims who are at war with us and who are following our inhuman example.

Obama’s next conciliatory visit should be in Dresden, Germany, the site of yet another genuine holocaust on par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Papal Grave-Digger of Europe

By Michael Hoffman

The ideology of Neoplatonic Hermeticism gained firm purchase among members of the Catholic elite in Florence, Italy circa 1450; after that it entered the Vatican toward the end of the 15th century, and the papacy itself by 1515. It predates Hegel’s concept of thesis-antithesis-synthesis by centuries. Among its most famous early Renaissance practitioners were Cosimo and Lorenzo Medici and Nicolo Machiavelli.

But what of the pope’s victory at Lepanto and the papal burning of the Talmud? Those events were akin to Pope Paul VI issuing Humane Vitae (his encyclical condemning artificial birth control) while suppressing the Tridentine Latin Mass. The thesis is visible but not the occult antithesis, and people are deceived.

The current thesis has Pope Francis announcing that a Muslim Mayor of London with connections to Sunni Wahhabist extremists, is good for Europe, while in the same interview he poses his antithesis: praising and offering support to the anti-Muslim Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), founded by the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre:

La Croix: "You received, on the past April 1st, Bp. Bernard Fellay, Superior-General of the Society of Saint Pius X. Is the reintegration of the Lefebvrists in the Church once again being considered?" 

Pope Francis: "In Buenos Aires, I always spoke with them. They saluted me, they asked for [my] blessing on their knees. They consider themselves Catholic. They love the Church. Bp. Fellay is a man with whom we can dialogue. It is not the case of other somewhat strange elements, such as Bp. Williamson, or others who have radicalized. I think, as I had expressed in Argentina, that they are Catholics on the path to full communion. During this Year of Mercy, it seemed that I should authorize their confessors to pardon the sin of abortion. They thanked me for this gesture...We dialogue well, we do a good work. (End quote).

To  the Right wing of the Church he gives this approbation to the “traditional Catholic” SSPX. To the Left he lends his support to mass Sunni-Salafist migration to Europe. 

Pope Francis to La Croix:

"Coming back to the migrant issue, the worst form of welcome is to ‘ghettoize’them. On the contrary, it’s necessary to integrate them. In Brussels, the terrorists were Belgians, children of migrants, but they grew up in a ghetto…. I am thinking here of Pope Gregory the Great (pope from 590 – 604), who negotiated with the people known as barbarians, who were subsequently integrated. This integration is all the more necessary today since, as a result of a selfish search for well-being, Europe is experiencing the grave problem of a declining birth rate.” (End quote).

The terrorists congregate in a ghetto because their brand of Salafism demands a ghetto. It is not the fault of Europe. Some terrorists have been shown to have attended European universities often at the taxpayers expense, and yet still they return to their ghetto mentality and spew blood and fire upon the hand that fed them so generously.

Furthermore, Pope Gregory did not oversee the “integration” of barbarians into Europe in the sixth century. They were already there. They were mostly indigenous. Pope Gregory helped to organize the conversion of the barbarians. Only after they were converted  to Catholicism were they integrated, and not before. Don’t imagine that Francis is not familiar with these facts. He is playing a game. 

In the La Croix interview he purports to lament the declining birth rate of Europeans. This is a macabre jest. The pontiff has admonished Catholics for allegedly talking too much about abortion and contraception. He refused  to campaign against laws in Ireland and under his nose in Italy, conferring state recognition of marriage upon practicing homosexuals. He is on record referring disparagingly to Catholics with many children, saying they breed like rabbits. On May 19, on learning that pro-abortion politician Marco Pannella had died, the Papal spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi praised  in a written statement, not off the cuff   the man who helped lead Italy in the 1970s to legalize abortion. [Rorate Caeli]

This writer will not be the only one to draw attention to the duplicity of Francis in these matters. But we will be mostly alone in raising the awareness that when the Pope issues these Janus-faced pronouncements and double-talk, he is doing so consonant with the 500-year-old tradition of Neoplatonic Hermeticism inside Rome. 

Because we have been sufficiently processed, the game is played now in the open, whereas in centuries past, of necessity it operated in a more clandestine context. In either case, the joke is on us.


Michael Hoffman's next book, “The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome,” is due for publication this autumn.
