Christian Support for Romney Mocks Christ

Christian Support for Romney Makes a Mockery of Christ

Michael Hoffman's Introduction: Robert Parry's essay (below) offers good insight into the degree to which Willard "Mitt" Romney is a creature of the blood-drenched, neo-con butchers who brought us the disastrous Iraq and Afghan wars. Foreign wars lead to trillion dollar US deficits and nation-building overseas, while US infrastructure crumbles. If he is elected, Romney will very likely invade Iran, creating a worldwide economic depression and gas prices at $6 or $7 a gallon in the US, while killing hundreds or thousands of American soldiers, sailors and Marines and tens of thousands of Iranian civilians (including pregnant Iranian women -- are you paying attention, anti-abortion activists?).  The slaughter of innocent men, women and children in needless foreign wars fought to make the world safe for Zionist oppression of indigenous people, is just as evil as homosexual marriage and abortion. War is a form of infanticide, since countless children, born and unborn, die as a result of it.

In addition to his allegiance to the neo-con butchers, Mr. Romney is the agent of predatory capitalism. He will strip every protection and every safety net from American workers that he can get away with. The poorest and most vulnerable in our society will suffer as a result, and abortions will increase. His vice-presidential running mate is an open advocate of the greed-is-good atheist economist Ayn Rand, for whom selfishness and the mortal sin of usury were high virtues.

Neither Obama nor Romney represent any kind of candidate that Christians can support, but Romney will indeed get the so-called "Christian" vote on November 6 thanks to the blindness of priests and ministers, from traditional Catholics to Billy Graham, who are helping to fulfill the Mormon ambition of putting a spiritual descendant of Joseph Smith into the White House. What is called Christianity today is a mockery of the holy name of Christ.

“Moderate Mitt” -- Neocon Trojan Horse
By Robert Parry, Consortium News
24 October 2012

Mitt Romney's peculiar sense of geography - thinking Iran was some landlocked country that needed Syria as a "route to the sea" - may have raised some eyebrows over Romney's lack of basic knowledge, but another part of the same answer, referring to the civil war in Syria as "an opportunity," should have raised more alarm.

Though Romney's goal in Monday's foreign policy debate was to downplay his warlike neoconservative stand, his reference to the Syrian chaos as "an opportunity" suggests that his more moderate rhetoric is just another ploy to deceive voters and win the election, not a real abandonment of neocon strategies.

In that sense, the new "moderate Mitt" is less a sign of a neocon retreat from his earlier bellicosity than a Trojan Horse to be wheeled onto the White House grounds on Jan. 20, 2013, so the neocons can pour forth from its hollowed-out belly and regain full control of U.S. foreign policy.

The neocons don't really mind that Romney has suddenly abandoned many of their cherished positions, such as extending the Afghan War beyond 2014 and returning U.S. troops to Iraq. The neocons understand the political need for Romney to calm independent voters who fear that he may be another George W. Bush.

In Monday's debate, Romney said, "Syria's an opportunity for us because Syria plays an important role in the Middle East, particularly right now. Syria is Iran's only ally in the Arab world. It's their route to the sea. It's the route for them to arm Hezbollah in Lebanon, which threatens, of course, our ally Israel. And so seeing Syria remove Assad is a very high priority for us. Number two, seeing a — a replacement government being responsible people is critical for us.”

The "route to the sea" comment - with its faint echo of a distant time in geopolitics - represented proof that Romney lacks even a rudimentary knowledge of world geography, since much of Iran's southern territory fronts on the Persian Gulf and Iran could only reach Syria by transiting Iraq. Syria and Iran have no common border.

But more significantly, Romney was revealing the crucial connection between the neocon desire for "regime change" in Syria and the neocon determination to strangle Israel's close-in enemies, such as Lebanon's Hezbollah.

Romney's demand for a new Syrian government of "responsible people" further suggests that the Republican presidential nominee shares the core neocon fantasy that the United States can simply remove one unsavory Middle East dictator and install a pro-Western, Israel-friendly leader who will then shut off aid to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

That was the central fallacy in the Iraq War, the notion that United States with its unparalleled military might could shift the Mideast's political dynamics to Israel's advantage through coercive "regime change." In Iraq, the U.S. military eliminated Saddam Hussein but then saw a new Iraqi government ally itself with Iran.

The new Iraq may be less of a military threat, but it has not reached out and embraced Israel as some neocons had hoped. Indeed, by removing Hussein's Sunni-controlled regime - and ending up with a Shiite-dominated one - Bush's Iraq War essentially eliminated a major bulwark against the regional influence of Iran's Shiite regime.

Yet, despite the bloody and costly catastrophe in Iraq, the heart of the neocon dream is still beating - and Romney's comment indicates that he shares its illusions. Dating back at least to the mid-1990s, the neocon idea has been to use violent or coercive "regime change" in Muslim countries to secure Israel's security.

The neocons' first target may have been Iraq, but that was never the endgame. The strategy was to make Iraq into a military base for overthrowing the governments of Iran and Syria. Back in the heady days of 2002-2003, a neocon joke posed the question of what to do after ousting Saddam Hussein in Iraq - whether to next go east to Iran or west to Syria. The punch-line was: "Real men go to Tehran."
According to the neocon grand plan, once pro-Israeli governments were established in Iran, Iraq and Syria, Israel's hostile neighbors, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, would lose their benefactors and shrivel up, without money or weapons. Then, Israel could dictate its terms for "peace" and "security.”

This neocon strategy emerged after the lopsided U.S. victory in Kuwait, in which President George H.W. Bush demonstrated the leaps-and-bounds advantage of the high-tech U.S. military over the Iraqi army whose soldiers were literally blown to bits by U.S. missiles and "smart bombs" while American casualties were kept to a minimum.

After that 1991 victory, it became conventional wisdom in Washington that no army on earth could withstand the sophisticated killing power of the U.S. military. That belief - combined with frustration over Israel's stalemated conflicts with Hamas and Hezbollah - led American neocons to begin thinking about a new approach, "regime change" across the Middle East.

The early outlines of this aggressive concept for remaking the Middle East emerged in 1996 when a group of neocons, including Richard Perle and Douglas Feith, went to work for Israel's Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu during his campaign for prime minister.

The neocon strategy paper, called "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," advanced the idea that only regime change in hostile Muslim countries could achieve the necessary "clean break" from the diplomatic standoffs that had followed inconclusive Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.

Under the "clean break," Israel would no longer seek peace through mutual understanding and compromise, but rather through confrontation, including the violent removal of leaders such as Iraq's Saddam Hussein who were supportive of Israel's close-in enemies.

The plan called Hussein's ouster "an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right," but also one that would destabilize the Assad dynasty in Syria and thus topple the power dominoes into Lebanon, where Hezbollah might soon find itself without its key Syrian ally. Iran also could find itself in the cross-hairs of "regime change."

But what the "clean break" needed was the military might of the United States, since some of the targets like Iraq were too far away and too powerful to be defeated even by Israel's highly efficient military. The cost in Israeli lives and to Israel's economy from such overreach would have been staggering.

In 1998, the U.S. neocon brain trust pushed the "clean break" plan another step forward with the creation of the Project for the New American Century, which urged President Bill Clinton to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

However, Clinton would only go so far, maintaining a harsh embargo on Iraq and enforcing a "no-fly zone" which involved U.S. aircraft conducting periodic bombing raids. Still, with Clinton or his heir apparent, Al Gore, in the White House, a full-scale invasion of Iraq appeared out of the question.

The first key political obstacle was removed when the neocons helped engineer George W. Bush's ascension to the presidency in Election 2000. However, the path was not fully cleared until al-Qaeda terrorists attacked New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001 (Editor's note: The US government attacked the World Trade Center), leaving behind a political climate across America for war and revenge.

Of course, the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003 had other motives besides Israeli security - from Bush's personal animus toward Saddam Hussein to controlling Iraq's oil resources - but a principal goal of the neocons was the projection of American power deep into the Muslim world, to strike at enemy states beyond Israel's military reach.

In those days of imperial hubris, the capabilities of the U.S. military were viewed as strategic game-changers. However, the Iraqi resistance to the U.S. conquest, relying on low-tech weapons such as "improvised explosive devices," dashed the neocon dream - at least in the short run. The "real men" had to postpone their trips to Tehran and Damascus.

But the dream hasn't died. It just had to wait out four years of Barack Obama. In Campaign 2012, the neocons have returned to surround Mitt Romney, who like George W. Bush a decade ago has only a vague understanding of the world and is more than happy to cede the direction of U.S. foreign policy to the smart, confident and well-connected neocons.

The neocons also understand the need to manipulate the American people. In the 1980s, when I was reporting Ronald Reagan's Central American policies, I dealt with the neocons often and came to view them as expert manipulators whose view of democracy was that it was okay to trick the common folk into doing what was deemed necessary. The neocons learned to exaggerate dangers and exploit fears. They tested their skills out in Central America with warnings about how peasant rebellions against corrupt oligarchs were part of some grand Soviet scheme to conquer the United States through the soft underbelly of Texas.

When the neocons returned to power under George W. Bush, they applied the same techniques in hyping the threat from Iraq. They pushed baseless claims about Saddam Hussein sharing non-existent weapons of mass destruction with al-Qaeda, all the better to scare the American people.

The neocons faced some painful reversals when the Iraq War foundered from late 2003 through 2006, but they salvaged some status in 2007 by pushing the fiction of the "successful surge," which supposedly turned impending defeat into victory, although the truth was that the "surge" only delayed the inevitable failure of the U.S. enterprise.

After Bush's departure in 2009 and the arrival of Obama, the neocons retreated, too, to Washington think tanks and the editorial pages of national news outlets. However, they continued to influence the perception of events in the Middle East, shifting the blame for the Iraq defeat - as much as possible - onto Obama.

New developments in the region also created what the neocons viewed as new openings. For instance, the Arab Spring of 2011 led to civil unrest in Syria where the Assad dynasty - based in non-Sunni religious sects - was challenged by a Sunni-led insurgency which included some democratic reformers as well as some radical jihadists.

Meanwhile, in Iran, international resistance to its nuclear program prompted harsh economic sanctions which have undermined the Islamic rule of the Shiite mullahs. Though President Obama views the sanctions as leverage to compel Iran to accept limits on its nuclear program, some neocons are already salivating over how to hijack the sanctions on behalf of "regime change."

At this pivotal moment, what the neocons need desperately is to maneuver their way back into the White House behind Mitt Romney's election. And, if that requires Romney to suddenly soften his hard-line neocon rhetoric for the next two weeks, that is a small price to pay.

Which brings us back to Monday's foreign policy debate in which Romney abandoned what had been his supposedly principled stands, such as denouncing Obama's schedule to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. Though Romney had called that a major mistake - telling the Taliban when the Americans were departing - he embraced the same timetable. The voters could breathe a sigh of relief over "Moderate Mitt."

However, in Romney's comment about Syria, he showed his real intent, the neocon desire to exploit the conflict in Syria to replace Bashar al-Assad with a new leader who would accommodate Israel and shut down assistance going to Lebanon's Hezbollah. It was in that context that Romney termed the Syrian violence, which has claimed an estimated 30,000 lives, an "opportunity."

But the real opportunity for the neocons would come if the American voters, satisfied that Romney no longer appears to be the crazy war hawk of the Republican primaries, elect him on Nov. 6 and then celebrate his arrival next Jan. 20 by pushing a crude wooden horse through the gates of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Stone in the Synagogue's Shoe

By Michael Hoffman
www.revisionisthistory.org
(French translation follows below)

 Bishop Williamson

Below we reprint a report detailing the pleasure the World Jewish Congress has derived from news of the dismissal of Bishop Richard Williamson from the SSPX priest's fraternity.

Pope Benedict XVI does not dare to intervene in Talmudic affairs, such as, for example, to publicly chastize Shas "spiritual leader" Rabbi Ovadia Yosef for calling for the extermination of the Palestinians. The Vatican has surrendered to Orthodox Judaism and only maintains sufficient disagreement to bolster the facade that it represents the Church of Jesus Christ on earth.

Meanwhile, the Zionists have no compunction against shaping and influencing the Catholic Church through their power over the western media, and the chutzpah which fuels their conviction that they have the right to sanctimoniously lecture the gentiles.

As the following declaration makes clear, Bishop Fellay has done the will of the Talmudists in expelling Bishop Williamson.

True, Mr. Ronald Lauder, the billionaire scion of the Estee Lauder cosmetics firm, and Ronald Reagan's former US Ambassador to Austria, is not yet satisfied. It seems that the SSPX has not done enough. This is consonant with the rabbinic ideology concerning the goyim -- the incomplete nature of the soul of the gentile renders the actions of the gentile incomplete even when, with the best of intentions, they bow to the synagogue in abject submission.

The goyim, the pope and Bishop Fellay included, lack that special soul with which morally and racially superior Judaic persons are endowed. If you don't believe it, observe the fate of the thousands of sub-Saharan African immigrants in the Israeli state who are bound for indefinite detention in concentration camps in the Negev, precisely due to their alleged inferiority to the Holy People. No western nation on earth could get away with such draconian barbarity without earning international opprobrium and sanctions, yet the concentration camps for Blacks in "Israel" is not an issue in America, for Obama or Romney, or the media. This is in keeping with the Talmudic dictum: one law for the "Holy People" and another for everyone else.

Bishop Fellay may speak of Bishop Williamson's "disobedience" to Fellay, but philosophically that claim is bankrupt, since Fellay himself continues to defy the pope by refusing to submit to the jurisdiction of the local ordinaries in the dioceses where SSPX churches, schools and seminaries are located. Archbishop Lefebvre, the founder of the SSPX, taught that the salvation of souls, and not obedience to wayward authority, was the highest priority. Salvation of souls is Bishop Williamson's mandate. How then can Fellay, who is disobedient to the pope,  accuse Williamson of disobedience? The obedience issue is a smokescren which conceals a larger truth. This truth is most transparent in the German precincts of the SSPX.

Bishop Fellay is mirroring the idolatry and despotism of the German SSPX, which labors under Germany's  Muslim-like blasphemy laws, which protect the sacred relics of Holocaustianity from forensic examination, skepticism and ridicule. The means of this protection are Germany's dungeons, where heretics such as publisher Ernst Zundel, and erstwhile Max Planck chemist Germar Rudolf, have rotted for years. Consequently, the SSPX conforms to the demands of the false religion of Holocaustianity, and does not contest the holocaustolatry of its relics, id est, the “gas chambers." Consequently, Bishop Williamson, who blasphemed those relics, represented what Mafiosi term, "pietra di la scarpa," the stone in the shoe. The stone had to be removed from the synagogue's shoe.


Lauder: Williamson dismissal from Pius Brotherhood "too little too late" and not credible

The head of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), Ronald S. Lauder, has welcomed the expulsion of Bishop Richard Williamson from the Catholic breakaway group Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) but said it should have been done years ago and “it does nothing to restore the credibility of this organization”.

Lauder declared: “It’s good that the hatemonger and Holocaust denier Williamson has finally been sent into the wilderness, but this is a decision the SSPX leadership should have taken years ago, when the cleric openly denied the existence of gas chambers. It is too little too late. The reasons now given for Williamson’s dismissal do not mention the damage this man has caused by spreading invective against Jews and others, be it from the pulpit, via his weekly newsletter and in his statements to the media.”

In a 1989 speech at Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes church in Sherbrooke, Canada, Williamson had claimed that “There was not one Jew killed in the gas chambers. It was all lies, lies, lies”. In an interview with Swedish television conducted in Germany in late 2008, he reaffirmed his view.

The WJC president said that although not all members of the SSPX were anti-Semites like Williamson, the group had yet to deal with the issue of anti-Semitism in its ranks and part ways with those “who continue to regard the Jews as the embodiment of the anti-Christ.” Lauder thanked Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Kurt Koch, the Vatican official in charge of relations with the Jews, for their unequivocal condemnation of anti-Semitic tendencies in the church. “We know where the Vatican stands on this. What we don’t know is whether the SSPX leadership agrees with it. Until the Pius Brotherhood takes a clear stand they should not be readmitted into the fold of the Catholic Church,” Ronald Lauder pointed out.

The SSPX said in a statement issued on Wednesday: "Monseigneur Richard Williamson, having distanced himself from the leadership and the government of the Saint Pius X Society over a period of several years and refusing to show respect and obedience deserved by his legitimate superiors, has been declared excluded."

The fraternity of traditionalists who broke away from the Vatican more than two decades ago over its reforms said the decision had been reached on 4 October 2013. Williamson was one of four bishops who were consecrated by Bishop Marcel Lefebvre in Econe, Switzerland, in 1988 against the orders of Pope John Paul II, who later excommunicated them. In January 2009, Pope Benedict XVI lifted the excommunication of the four.

“Thank Goodness the Williamson saga will soon be behind us, once the Regensburg court has decided on his conviction for Holocaust denial,” said Lauder.

La pierre dans la chaussure de la Synagogue

Ci-après on trouvera un article faisant état du plaisir éprouvé par le
Congrès juif mondial à l'annonce du renvoi de l'évêque Richard Williamson de
la Fraternité St Pie X [nous ne traduisons pas l'article en question: on le
trouvera sur le site indiqué ci-dessus]. 
   Le pape Benoît XVI n'ose pas intervenir dans les affaires talmudiques
comme, par exemple, réprimander publiquement le "chef spirituel" du Shass,
le rabbin Ovadia Yosef, quand ce dernier a appelé à l'extermination des
Palestiniens. Le Vatican a capitulé devant le judaïsme orthodoxe et
entretient juste ce qu'il faut de désaccord pour maintenir son apparence de
représentant de l'Eglise de Jésus-Christ sur la terre. 
   En revanche, les sionistes n'ont aucun scrupule à façonner et à
influencer l'Eglise catholique grâce au pouvoir qu'ils ont sur les médias
occidentaux et grâce à leur chutzpah [leur culot] qui fait d'eux des gens
persuadés d'avoir le droit de donner, mine de rien, des leçons aux gentils.
   Comme il appert dans les déclarations ci-dessous [voir le site], Mgr
Fellay a accompli la volonté des Talmudistes en excluant Mgr Williamson. 
   C'est vrai, Mr Ronald Lauder, rejeton milliardaire de la firme de
cosmétiques Estée Lauder et ancien ambassadeur américain de Ronald Reagan en Autriche, n'est pas encore satisfait. Il semble que la Fraternité n'en ait pas fait assez. C'est ce qui correspond à l'idéologie rabbinique relative
aux goyim : la nature incomplète de l'âme des gentils rend les actes de ces
gentils incomplets même si, avec les meilleures intentions du monde, ils
s'inclinent, dans une soumission abjecte, devant la synagogue. 
   Les goyim, le Pape et y compris Mgr Fellay sont dépourvus de cette âme
spéciale dont sont dotées les personnes juives moralement et racialement
supérieures. Si vous ne le croyez pas, voyez le sort des milliers d'immigrés
africains sub-sahariens qui, en Israël, sont condamnés à une détention sans
fin dans les camps de concentration du Negev, précisément du fait de leur
infériorité présumée par rapport au Peuple Saint. Face à une barbarie aussi
cruelle pas une nation occidentale sur terre ne pourrait s'en tirer sans
recueillir l'opprobre de toutes les nations et sans être l'objet de
sanctions, et pourtant ces camps de concentration pour Noirs en "Israël" ne
sont pas un problème en Amérique pour Obama ou pour Romney, ou pour les
médias, ce qui est en conformité avec le dicton talmudique: une loi pour le
"Peuple Saint" et une autre pour tous les autres. 
   Mgr Fellay peut bien parler de la "désobéissance" de Mgr Williamson,
mais philosophiquement cette allégation est nulle, puisque Fellay lui-même
continue à défier le Pape en refusant de se soumettre à la juridiction des
ordinaires locaux dans les diocèses où sont situés des églises, des écoles
et des séminaires de la Fraternité. Mgr Lefebvre, fondateur de la
Fraternité, a enseigné que la première des priorités était le salut des
âmes, et non pas l'obéissance à une autorité rebelle. Le salut des âmes, tel
est le mandat qu'a reçu Mgr Williamson. Mais alors comment Mgr Fellay, qui
désobéit au Pape, peut-il accuser Mgr Williamson de désobéissance? La
question de la désobéissance est un écran de fumée qui cache une vérité plus
grande. Cette vérité-là est plus que transparente dans les circonscriptions
allemandes de la Fraternité. 
   Mgr Fellay reflète l'idolâtrie et le despotisme de la Fraternité
allemande, qui oeuvre péniblement sous la férule des lois allemandes sur le
blasphème analogues aux lois musulmanes, qui protègent les reliques sacrées
de l'Holocaustianisme contre tout examen médico-légal, tout scepticisme et
toute dérision. Les moyens d'une telle protection, ce sont les cachots
allemands, où des hérétiques comme l'éditeur Ernst Zündel et le chimiste,
ancien du Max Planck Institute, Germar Rudolf ont moisi pendant des années. 
En conséquence, la Fraternité se conforme aux exigences de la fausse
religion de l'Holocaustianisme et ne conteste pas l'idolâtrie de ses
reliques, c'est-à-dire les "chambres à gaz". En conséquence encore, Mgr
Williamson, qui avait blasphémé ces reliques, représentait ce que les gens
de la Mafia appellent "la pietra della scarpa", la pierre de la chaussure.
Cette pierre, il fallait l'enlever de la chaussure de la synagogue.

Bishop Williamson expelled from the SSPX

Catholic Bishop Williamson has been expelled from the SSPX 
By Michael Hoffman

The announcement has come that Roman Catholic Bishop Richard N. Williamson of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX)  has been expelled from this priestly fraternity by his fellow Bishop, Bernard Fellay.

Bishop Williamson has publicly stated that he does not believe anyone was gassed to death in the alleged "gas chambers" of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The Vatican suspended all of his episcopal functions until such time as he would recant his doubts. In spite of enormous ecclesiastical pressure, worldwide media calumny, loss of his post as rector of the SSPX seminary in Argentina, and expulsion from Argentina, the bishop refused to recant. He was subsequently exiled to London, at the SSPX headquarters there. 

The purge of Williamson follows the recent expulsion of two other priests from the SSPX, Fr. Francois Chazal and Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer. Fr. Chazal has reported the degree to which the SSPX in Germany has tyrannized any opinion that dares to question politically correct dogmas, and that this Establishment-conforming spirit has spread to other SSPX districts and regions.

Bishop Williamson has impressed revisionist activists worldwide with his courage. He is probably the highest placed Christian churchman ever to maintain a sustained challenge to the homicidal gas chamber allegations.

When he was rector of St Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota, Williamson hosted a talk by Ernst Zundel's defense attorney, Doug Christie. Bishop Williamson encouraged his seminarians to read this writer's The Great Holocaust Trial, copies of which were amply provisioned in the seminary library.

All it takes for a man to be dehumanized in this day and age is to be stigmatized as a "holocaust denier" and an "anti-semite," and his career as a human being is over and his life as a monster begins. This process has infected even the SSPX fraternity founded by the staunchly anti-masonic, anti-Talmudic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who served as Pope Pius XII's legate to all of French Africa in the 1950s.

Denial of Allied holocausts in Dresden and Nagasaki, and Israeli holocausts in Jenin, Beirut and Gaza are of course fully approved. Anti-goyimite hatred, as enshrined in the religion of Judaism's canonical texts, is also fine and dandy.

Catholics traditionally have honored those who bear a stigmata and we have little doubt that the stigma upon Bishop Williamson will one day win him a crown in heaven and a place of honor here on earth, when better days come 'round again for the Church.

BOOK: Usury in Christendom - Pre-publication Sale

Pre-publication Sale. Reserve your copy

USURY IN CHRISTENDOM
The Mortal Sin That Was and Now Is Not


416 pages. Illustrated. Quality paperback

For most of the first 1500 years of Christianity usury, the lending of money at interest, was unanimously condemned by the Fathers of the Early Church, and by popes, councils and saints, as a damnable sin equivalent to robbery and even murder. Any interest on loans of money, not just “exorbitant” interest, was defined de fide as a grave transgression against God and man.

This pioneering study of the rise of the Money Power in Christendom confronts the reader with a startling datum: the overthrow of magisterial dogma and the approval of scripture-twisting heresy occurred inside the Church centuries before the Enlightenment and the dawn of the modern era, culminating in the overthrow of divine truth; an epochal act of nullification.

Usury in Christendom resurrects the suppressed biblical, patristic and medieval Catholic doctrine on interest on money, provides new information on the record of early Protestant resistance to the usury revolution, and the discernment, by Dante and other visionaries, of usury’s sub-rosa connection to a host of abominations that continue to plague us today.

Western civilization was profoundly disfigured by the exculpation of the charging of interest on debt. The result has been a pursuit of usurious profit unconstrained by the Word of God, the dogma of His true Church, and the consensus patrum of fifteen centuries.

Hoffman's history of how a den of thieves robbed the followers of Christ of their patrimony is grounded in an extensive study of rare and primary sources, and represents a landmark revisionist history of how the breeders of money gained dominion over the West.

Catholic Palestinian-American Murdered by Zionists

American Citizen Killed in California by Zionist Terrorists - Perpetrators Remain at Large




The murderers of this courageous Christian-Palestinian American can't be brought to justice because of the Israeli terror lobby. Yes, there are many Israeli terrorists. Counterfeit "Israel" was founded by terrorists of the Irgun and Stern gang. Where are Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and the rest of the media when it comes to the murder by terrorists of this American citizen? Apparently he's of the wrong religion and national origin to merit publicity, outrage or the prosecution of his killers by "our" government.

On October 11, 1985, Alex Odeh was killed when a powerful pipe bomb exploded as he unlocked and opened the door of his office in Santa Ana, California. In addition to killing Mr. Odeh, the bomb injured several bystanders.

October 11, 2012 marks the 27th anniversary of this unsolved terrorist attack.

Odeh was was a U.S. citizen, a Palestinian native and a Roman Catholic, from a family of priests and nuns. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1972.  At the time of his murder he was the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)’s Southern California Regional Director and a lecturer of Arabic Language and Middle East history at Coastline College in Santa Ana, California. Mr. Odeh was a tireless peace activist. He dedicated his life to the defense of civil liberties at home, and civil and human rights abroad. He is survived by his wife Norma and their three daughters.

Americans continue to demand that those responsible for his murder be brought to justice. Last week, ADC sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging the Department of Justice to renew their efforts to resolve the case. ADC has made a formal request for a meeting with the attorney general to discuss the case.

The FBI investigation into Alex Odeh’s murder remains open, with a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to an arrest and conviction. However, no arrest has yet been made in spite of the fact that press reports have stated over the years that the FBI identified members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) as suspects. None of the identified JDL individuals has ever been charged or prosecuted in connection with the murder, and some have fled to the Israeli state where they have haven from prosecution.

ADC President Warren David called the murder of Alex Odeh "an injustice to his family, the Arab American community and to all Americans. After 27 years we are still outraged. We demand that the Justice Department and the FBI bring closure to this heinous act immediately."

ADC and the Arab-American community are deeply troubled that the perpetrators have been at large for nearly three decades, despite all the available leads to resolving Alex’s murder. The lack of closure of Alex’s murder by the FBI and the Department of State has been viewed as a sign that the life of an American civil rights advocate with Palestinian roots is not valued by the U.S. Government as much as other American lives.

We ask that the FBI, the Justice Department and the State Department show good faith by redoubling  efforts and allocating necessary resources for bringing to justice, once and for all, the terrorists who killed an American citizen.

German Shepherds renew their attack on Bishop Williamson

By Michael Hoffman
www.revisionisthistory.org

Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller was recently appointed the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (responsible for enforcement of dogma), by that other German shepherd, Pope Benedict XVI (Josef Ratzinger). The October 4, 2012 issue of the National Catholic Register online features an interview with Archbishop Müller. Here is an excerpt:

National Catholic Register: "Is it possible for reconciliation with Bishop Richard Williamson within the Society (of St. Pius X - "SSPX")?"

Archbishop Müller: "Williamson is a separate problem to this reconciliation process. It is simply unacceptable that a Christian or even more a bishop — of course he is not a Catholic bishop, as a bishop is only Catholic when he is in full communion with the Pope, the Successor of Peter, which Williamson is not — denies all that the Nazis had done against the Jewish people, their exterminations. How is it possible to be so cold-hearted about this? It is absolutely unacceptable, but this is a separate problem." (End quote).

Here is Shoahbiz theological-'history' as embraced by the magisterium of the Catholic Church, to which every Catholic is bound to submit. Catholics are ordered to be completely smitten with the new religion of Holocaustianity, and believe "all that the Nazis had done against the Jewish people" (according to Judaic and Allied propaganda).

This is the new dogma: a viewpoint of men concerning secular history has now become divine writ. If you dare to doubt the high priests of Holocaustianity, and you believe instead Arthur R. Butz, Robert Faurisson, Germar Rudolf, Carlo Mattogno, Thies Christophersen, Fred Leutcher, Thomas Dalton, Samuel Crowell and many other revisionist scholars, scientists and historians who say there were no fatal gassings in Auschwitz-Birkeanu, then you are a "cold-hearted" heretic who will be booted out of the Catholic Church. You can doubt the Israeli holocaust in Gaza and the Allied holocaust in Dresden, but it would be heresy to allow former Max Planck Institute doctoral candidate Rudolf to doubt the chemistry of the holy relics of Auschwitz.

Am I a heretic for thinking that the Northern Union that defeated the Southern Confederacy was a genocidal, racist regime due to the massacre of the American Indians which Union generals like Sherman, Sheridan and Custer perpetrated in the American West, after defeating the South? Do I open myself to ecclesiastical censure by asserting that contemporary Orthodox Judaism is the spiritual heir of the same ideology that crucified Jesus? Will I be called to Rome for denying that Elie Wiesel is a saint?

The only historical facts that Catholics are bound to acknowledge are found in the Gospels and summarized in the Creed.  The neo-Platonist papal 'hermeneutic of continuity' puts the perjured and/or confused testimony of the "eyewitnesses" to the supposed homicidal gas chambers of Auschwitz on par with the witnesses to Christ's Resurrection in Palestine. Actually, some Catholics doubt Christ's resurrection and no heavily publicized persecution of those skeptics issues from the Vatican. In Catholicism, the alleged execution gas chambers of Auschwitz are more sacred that Christ's Resurrection. So we have an idol to which all must bow, and Bishop Williamson, performing his Biblical duty by refusing to bow, is persecuted by the pope and bishops as a heretic. This is the world turned upside down.

The pope and his prelatical shepherds of the flock do not speak with authority. They speak with about as much lucidity as the Mad Hatter at the Tea Party of Alice in Wonderland. Who can credit such men as spiritual guides, or Christian authorities?

The Vatican has been performing doctrinal somersaults and betrayals of Catholic Truth for many hundreds of years, long before the Enlightenment. To discover the root of modernism in the Catholic Church one must look all the way back -- to the dawn of the Renaissance, and the rise of the most palpable darkness that ever came out of the bottomless pit, as this writer's forthcoming book, Usury in Christendom, will endeavor to demonstrate.
