Weekend Revelations, Stories of the Holocaust and Eternal Hope

“Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.” Sophie Scholl

By Shirley Edwards

(These are my views as a woman living in England, on how the culture and spirit of my country has changed over 50 years.   Why the country does not feel protected or strong any more, how it has lost, and is losing it values and decency, and how we are daily losing our free speech.)

Friday 29th August, 2019.

It is pretty amazing what can happen all in the space of 3 days.   What had started with a simple trip one Friday afternoon to an air-show to help hand out some leaflets for some friends, had also turned into an unexpected lunch with a young German couple and their child, an evening listening to Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss, step-sister to Anne Frank, and a cosy evening curled up on my friend’s settee viewing a new film with a very strange title called ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society’.  

You just couldn’t have made it all up. Yet the air show, the film and the meetings, although separated over the length of 3 days, were all so closely connected, telling the story of life, sacrifice, death and resurrection,  that I had to write it all down.     For you see they had also carried another message…….  

Saturday 30th August, 2019

As we wandered through the crowds that Saturday afternoon handing out leaflets, some of the spectators and air enthusiasts would have witnessed in the skies the Battle of Britain Memorial flights consisting of Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters.  There were warbirds including the Buchon, Spitfire, P-47D Thunderbolt and Mustang; and there was a P-8A Poseidon Surveillance aircraft, which has a wingspan of 40 metres, developed for the U.S. Navy.  

Even some miles away you would have been able to hear the noise of their engines even if you couldn’t witness them.  Sometimes, and most especially in the evening, they had sounded like thunder in the distance warning people of an impending storm

Some of the planes were very reminiscent of a bygone era.   However, on the ground that day there was a strange battle of another kind taking place which were definitely in conflict with the lessons we should learn from history.

A sea of demonstrators all representing many different groups appeared within the crowds.  We were faced with people waving blue and yellow star spangled EU flags, people waving rainbow coloured flags, placards were being carried calling for democracy, banners and posters were being displayed to ‘out’ the prime minister, Boris Johnson, and demonstrations against climate change, were all inter-mingled and all attempting to make their voices heard above the sounds of rock music from one area and 40’s swing music from another area.   It was all one crazy market place.

The peacefulness at my friend’s home was a very welcome relief as that evening we watched the strangely titled film “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society” which tells the true story of the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands during the Second World War and reflects the resistance that some Guernsey residents displayed towards the Nazi’s.

In 2010, it was also reported that testimonies from resistance fighters in Guernsey were discovered by a research team from the University of Cambridge indicating that many resistance fighters were deported by cattle trucks from the island to be imprisoned in Germany.   Many, however, also died on the way, and it is reported from those testimonies that the other prisoners were forced to bury them.

Sunday 31st August 2019

The next day as the sounds of the rumbling aircrafts once more filled the skies we left the crowds and joined some friends for lunch.   A couple from Germany, with their young child were staying with my friends.   They were aged just 21.  They were Christian and had a very strong and humble faith.  I was particularly struck by their responsibility to their young daughter and how the husband only spoke English to the child whilst the mother spoke German.  The young man explained to me how he had been tempted by friends on some occasions to ‘go with the crowd’ but had escaped the baggage of ‘unravelling sin’ by resisting that. He was very keen to know about events happening in the UK, about Brexit, about culture and immigration.  They were an exceptional couple who I will always remember.  Later, I learned that their child had been born with a serious condition at birth.  They prayed for her recovery, and she is completely healed.

Their beginnings in family life, and indeed their future, came to mind as later that day I attended a presentation called A Historic Event with Eva Schloss, who is a holocaust survivor, peace activist, international speaker, teacher and humanitarian.  She is also the step-sister of Anne Frank who wrote the book “The Diary of Anne Frank” and is 90 years old.

Listening to her story of how she survived, the escape from her homeland in Austria, two years in hiding in Amsterdam, capture on her 15th birthday, nine months in Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps, and her repatriation to Holland was very interesting.

It was sad to listen to how she had lost her father and brother, and very difficult to listen to how the women and young children had been stripped naked in front of the soldiers whilst they decided who would go to the gas chambers.   Both Eva and her mother did survive and she stated they were eventually liberated by the Russian army.  She went on to be married, have children, and also grand-children.

Whilst listening, I thought about the plight of children who are separated from their parents, and also recalled the 80th anniversary of Harwich Kindertransport, where 10,000 children were evacuated from Germany after anti-Jewish violence known as Kristallnacht in 1938.  Many of those children never saw their parents again.

During the evening there was a musical tribute called Ani Ma’amin – I Believe.   The history of the music is that it was composed by Azriel David Fastage on his way to his death at Treblinka.  A single survivor who jumped from the train later bought the composition to the United States.  The song is meant to speak of Eternal Hope.

Eva Schloss stated she speaks about her experiences so that it does not happen again, that we remember the holocaust, and fight the rise of anti-Semitism.     She was very honest in her answers saying she would not forgive the Nazi’s.     You can read here about Eva’s life.

I came away with many questions and observations about the times we are currently living in.

Monday 1st September, 2019

It was a beautiful morning as I packed my case to return home.  The sun was shining and it was very peaceful.   No doubt, I would later meet the thousands of spectators who had been attending the air show who would also be returning to their respective homes.   I looked at one of the leaflets which I had kept.  It spoke of the great mysteries of the air; the first hot air balloon in France, where the cargo was a sheep, a duck and a chicken.  It spoke of the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, how a helicopter lands when its engines fail and the disappearance of flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.  The leaflet then linked to the mystery that the disciples of Jesus Christ faced right before their eyes, as they watched him ascend from the Mount of Olives, 2000 years ago.  Some people who had taken the leaflets felt misled that the mysteries that they were more interested in had led them to read about a greater mystery explained.

It had been interesting that my friend had been approached by a local council official who had attempted in a false manner to stop her handing out these leaflets whilst ignoring the demonstrations nearby who had made a religion out of their own particular cause.   Eternal Hope, appeared to be an enemy.

I witnessed how the battle between good and evil is continuing taking place and how eugenics, euthanasia, and abortion, which are all trade marks of evil and are symbolic of ethnic cleansing are increasingly being promoted quite openly.    I thought about the indoctrination in our primary schools in relation to gender identity and how young children were being experimented upon with hormone blockers and how children were being given a so called freedom and encouraged to ‘choose’ their sexuality or have no identity at all.  ‘Nobodies’.   Yes, in my opinion, there is a holocaust taking place.   Objectors will be silenced.

Monday September 16th 2019

The events of the weekend I spent 2 weeks ago had become a bit of a distant memory until I read a timely article today and was reminded about two German Christians, Sophie and Hans Scholl, who were executed in Germany for resisting Hitler and the Nazi’s. At the time of their beheading Hans was 24 years old and Sophie was 21.  They had belonged to a non-violent underground movement in Germany known as the White Rose resistance movement and as part of their activities had wrote and distributed leaflets exposing the brutality that was happening in Germany.

In 1943, after their death, millions of copies of the sixth leaflet called ‘The Manifesto of the Students of Munich’ which had been smuggled out of the country were airdropped over Germany by the Allied Forces.

I was particularly struck by a quotation attributed to Sophie Scholl which reads:

“The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves – or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.”

“I will cling to the rope God has thrown me in Jesus Christ, even when my numb hands can no longer feel it.

Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your Freedom

By J. D. Pendry

“Hell Yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, Your AK-47.” Presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke

Robert Francis O’Rourke meant to say take away your freedom.  Not take away your Armalite Rifle (AR) 15.  Your weapon of war.  Robert might be surprised to know my Army basic combat training Drill Sergeants, all recent Vietnam Combat Veterans, taught me that every piece of equipment I carried was a potential weapon of war with which to kill the enemy complete with demonstrations.  Are you coming for my entrenching tool (shovel) next?

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

People, mostly politicians offer promises of hope and visions of a utopian future.  False hope mostly, but collectively we Americans are proven slow learners.  It’s false hope because it’s always proven fallacious, but usually after Americans bought it hook, line and sinker.  False hope through misleading promises always leaves us problems more serious than the problem we hoped to solve.  Will gun control or gun confiscation under whatever misnomer make us safer?  Or will it leave us defenseless in our homes and in public?  Or will it leave us defenseless against a tyrannical government?  The very purpose for the 2nd Amendment.  Did prohibition make us sober or safer?  Nope.  It only created a highly profitable bootlegging black market for the likes of Al Capone.  Then it was repealed and everyone got drunk legally.  So, when they come to take our guns is the offered hope of safety the goal?  Hell no, O’Rourke, it isn’t.  The goal is to remove our means of protecting ourselves and the ability to defend our God-given and Constitutionally guaranteed freedom all under the pretext of making us safer.

There’s lots of false hope spread around.  Sugar candy for the ignorant.  Free Medicare for all.  Do you know what that means?  Every working person my age was government forced into Social Security and Medicare.  We paid for it all of our working lives to cover the senior citizens of our time.  What’s next Comrade Sanders?  A social security check for everyone?  Yang has a plan I hear.  Bottom line, it takes away every American’s freedom to choose.  That’s the goal comrade.  Isn’t it?  By the way comrade, while you contemplate taking away my healthcare only to be followed by my Social Security check and probably military pension, how was it that you became a millionaire owning multiple homes while never holding a job other than civil service.  Your role model Karl Marx was a bum also.

Open borders will make us more diverse and vibrant.  We’ll end racism.  No, not really, but we will end America.  The actual goal.

The biggest false hope.  The most dangerous.  Most of us do not believe that loss of freedom is a possibility.  Not in America.  Let me run this by you?  Do not believe that every member of the United States Armed Forces will stand by their oaths to support and defend the Constitution of the United States regarding the right to keep and bear arms and protection against illegal search and seizure.  Always remember.  Presidents decide who the flag officers are.  The men and women that command the major elements of the military.  Their influence ripples down from the Commander in Chief through the chain of command.  Many will obey a command to knock on your door and confiscate weapons accompanied by your local, in some cases sanctuary state, police forces.

Just as man cannot give you integrity, dignity, courage, your values or cannot determine whether you live honorably, neither can he give you freedom.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

As Americans, we can continue as the guardians of freedom or our citizenry can submissively slip the yoke of slavery around its neck.

Freedom cannot be taken.  It can only be forfeited.  We must stand firm.

WILLIAM PELHAM BARR, PATRIOT OR TRAITOR

It is a sobering fact that American presidents (many of whom have been corrupt) have gone out of their way to hire fixers to be their attorney generals.

By Kelleigh Nelson

John Brennan writes: “But if democracy is a process rather than a state, the democratic process may involve, at some point, the violation of personal liberties and procedural justice.”

This is the chilling apologia for the anti-Trump conspiracy.  In order to keep the regime moving “forward,” the violation of personal liberties and procedural justice” is justified, whether it is an unpaid campaign adviser being violated (Carter Page) or the National Security Advisor (General Mike Flynn); whether it entails launching a disinformation campaign (Trump/Russia), or reversing an election (the Mueller probe).  The ends – their ends – justify any means.  Diana West in her book, The Red Thread

William Pelham Barr has a history of coverups, and the more I look at the facts, the more convinced I’ve become that he will protect the Deep State.  Resistance to the onslaught of evil is almost non-existent.  Socialists control the mass media, they have all the money in the world, they control higher and now even lower education, and they have edged their way into the pulpits of America.  Add all of that up along with our ignorant electorate who blindly vote without any knowledge of the candidates and how the hell are we ever to win?  These freedom hating socialists belong in the center of Dante’s hell. 

It is a sobering fact that American presidents (many of whom have been corrupt) have gone out of their way to hire fixers to be their attorney generals.  Recent history alone gives us a good look at several of them…Loretta Lynch (2015-2017), Eric Holder (2009-2015), Michael Mukasey (2007-2009), Alberto Gonzales (2005-2007), John Ashcroft (2001-2005), Janet Reno (1993-2001), Dick Thornburgh (1988-1991), Ed Meese (1985-1988), etc. 

Barr, however, seems to be a particularly spectacular and sordid case. As George H. W. Bush’s most notorious CIA insider from 1973 to 1977, and as the AG from 1991 to 1993, Barr wreaked havoc, flaunted the rule of law, and proved himself to be one of the CIA/Deep State’s greatest and most ruthless champions and protectors.  In fact, his modus operandi is a great deal like that of his close friend, Robert Mueller. Before becoming Attorney General in 1991, Barr held numerous other posts within the Department of Justice (DOJ), including serving as Deputy Attorney General.  

The CIA, Congress and Covert Operations

The issue of notification of Congress about imminent clandestine activities was at the heart of the Iran-Contra scandal when President Ronald Reagan and CIA Director William Casey specifically ordered that lawmakers be kept in the dark about the infamous, covert arms-for-hostages deals with Iran. 

Barr was by no means alone in pushing these views, the documents show. Other notable proponents during the Iran-Contra aftermath included then-Congressman Dick Cheney and John R. Bolton, who was also at the Justice Department.  After Cheney became defense secretary, he continued to press for extraordinarily broad Executive Branch authority, advising then-President George H. W. Bush to veto the Senate’s intelligence appropriations bill on the grounds it “attacked” presidential prerogatives – resulting in the only known such veto since the CIA’s creation.  Link

Spook Air Moves to Ohio

Previously documented was Mr. Barr’s involvement with the CIA, the Iran-Contra scandal, the covert arms-for-hostages deals with Iran and Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton’s sellout to the CIA.  

Arkansas was great for Iran Contra, but it was a wealthy Ohio businessman and his close associate that helped attract the CIA to the Buckeye State. Those men were billionaire philanthropist Leslie Wexner and Jeffrey Epstein.  Wexner owns The Limited and Victoria’s Secret, and during this period, he had entrusted all of his money to his longtime friend, Jeffrey Epstein, a secretive financier. 

Wexner and his company had a relationship with the CIA and Southern Air Transport (SAT) which was directly owned and used by the CIA for covert operations from 1960-1973.  SAT was intimately involved in the Iran-Contra affair, having been used to funnel weapons and drugs to and from the Nicaraguan Contras under the guise of delivering “humanitarian aid.”

Ohio gave lucrative tax incentives to SAT for a promised 300 new jobs they’d bring to Columbus that never transpired.  Columbus Free Press editor, Bob Fitrakis noted that in addition to Wexner the other main figures who were key in securing SAT’s relocation to Ohio were Alan D. Fiers Jr., a former chief of the CIA Central American Task Force, and retired Air Force Major General Richard Secord, head of air logistics for SAT’s covert action in Laos between 1966 and 1968, while the company was still known as Air America. Secord was also the air logistics coordinator in the illegal Contra resupply network for Oliver North during Iran-Contra. 

Fiers was later pardoned by George H. W. Bush with help from then AG Bill Barr. 

William Safire on AG Barr

Back in 1992, the first time Bill Barr was U.S. attorney general, New York Times writer William Safire referred to him as “Coverup-General Barr” because of his role in burying evidence of then-President George H. W. Bush’s involvement in “Iraq-gate” and “Iran-Contra.”  Iraq-gate was essentially the Bush administration using the agriculture department and banking to illegally divert funds to build up Saddam Hussein’s military after the Iraq-Iran war, including selling him weapons of mass destruction.  This was a huge scandal that Safire was involved in covering. 

Barr has been the go-to guy for protecting a president, covering up scandals, and obstructing investigations. In August 1992, Safire wrote about Barr’s refusal to appoint an independent counsel to investigate what he called Iraq-gate.  Safire lasered in on what he thought was “the Bush Administration’s fraudulent use of public funds, its sustained deception of Congress and its obstruction of justice.” 

Another independent counsel, Lawrence Walsh, had been named to investigate the Iran-contra affair in 1986 and would infuriate Republicans when he issued high profile indictments on the eve of the 1992 election. 

AG Barr was already covering up for Bush, Weinberger, Elliott Abrams, former assistant secretary of state; Robert C. McFarlane, former national security adviser, and former CIA officials Clair E. George, Alan D. Fiers and Duane Clarridge and others from the Reagan administration.  

Elliot Abrams, George H. W. Bush, Caspar Weinberger, William Barr (AP/Getty/Salon)

On October 19, 1992, Safire wrote of Barr’s unwillingness to appoint an independent counsel to look into Iraq-gate, “Why does the Coverup-General resist independent investigation? Because he knows where it may lead: to Dick Thornburgh, James Baker, Clayton Yeutter, Brent Scowcroft and himself (the people who organized the sale of WMDs to Saddam). He vainly hopes to be able to head it off, or at least be able to use the threat of firing to negotiate a deal.”

Three months later, Safire revisited the issue after Barr “handpicked a whitewasher” who would successfully filibuster the probe until after the election.  Barr pushed hard for last minute pardons for six individuals caught up in the investigation, including former defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. 

Lawrence Walsh had been appointed to investigate the Iran-Contra activities of the Reagan administration and determine if crimes had been committed.  But the pardons by Barr aborted Weinberger’s trial and virtually eliminated what was left of Walsh’s investigation.  Walsh denounced the pardons and stated that doing so “undermines the principle that no man is above the law.”

Walsh’s tenure effectively discredited the independent counsel law in the eyes of both parties.

In Safire’s article, Justice Corrupts Justice, he accused Barr of not only rigging the cover-up, but of being one of the criminals who could be prosecuted.

John Bolton

John Bolton has always been a war hawk, one who promoted funding for the military industrial complex.  As such, I am thrilled that our President fired him.

Bolton has made a career out of defying Congress. During the Iran-Contra investigations, he refused to comply with Congressional demands for records. Bolton also believed that the Independent Counsel law was unconstitutional and did everything he could do preempt Congress’s efforts to investigate Iran-Contra. Bolton has no record of building up and reforming institutions. He defies laws, believes in might makes right, and has worked to undermine the system of checks and balances that is key to America’s representative republic.

The Inslaw/Promis Octopus

Inslaw Inc. is an information technology firm which developed the famous Promis software. A bankruptcy court determined Inslaw was defrauded of its intellectual property rights. Hillary Clinton was the intellectual property lawyer for the company that illegally marketed the software worldwide. Mary Jacoby, wife of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, is the daughter of a major investor in the company Hillary Clinton represented that marketed the stolen software.

The Promis software is a National Crime Information Center (NCIC)-type tracking technology incorporating numerous databases such as court records, financial

institutions, and utility companies. Inslaw was forced into bankruptcy in 1985 because the US Justice Department which contracted to purchase it, reneged on its obligations. Pirated versions of the software were sold by the US intelligence community worldwide to 88 foreign intelligence agencies, and other organizations such as banks. The program included a “backdoor” for US intelligence to hack into. 

Once the original version of Promis was delivered, the DOJ handed off a copy to the CIA which subcontracted Wackenhut Corp. to develop the “backdoor.” Wackenhut hired a technical and electronics whiz-kid, Michael Riconosciuto as its Research Director. A child prodigy who built an argon laser at 16, invented the electrostatic bomb, and published his Riconosciuto Italian to English dictionary still in use by most online translators among his many other inventions, Riconosciuto was put to work designing the covert “backdoor” for the co-opted Promis program. The work was done at a facility on the Cabazon Indian Reservation in Indio California. Another modification would take place in Little Rock, Arkansas, to tailor the Promis software for use by banks.

In October 1991, Barr appointed then retired Democratic Chicago judge Nicholas Bua as special counsel in the Inslaw scandal. Few people understand the full ramifications of Promis software, and the undetectable spying apparatus placed in foreign computers. In 1989, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jack Brooks, D-TX, launched a three-year investigation into the Inslaw affair. In the resulting report, the Committee suggested that among others, Edwin Meese, while presidential counselor and later as attorney general, and Democrat D. Lowell Jensen a former assistant and deputy attorney general and former US district judge in San Francisco, conspired to steal Promis software from Bill Hamilton’s company, Inslaw.

Bua’s 1993 report found the DOJ of no wrong doing in the matter, despite a 12-year lawsuit by Inslaw, regarding the government theft of their software.  One journalist, Danny Casolaro, died as he attempted to tell the story and boxes of documents relating to the case were destroyed, stolen, or conveniently “lost” by the DOJ. Software piracy, conspiracy, cover-up, stonewalling, covert action…just another decade at the corrupt DOJ.

Barr’s Blanket Immunity for Federal Agents

Barr told the New York Times in 1993 that he was not directly involved in the Ruby Ridge operation. Two years later, the Washington Post revealed that “top officials of the Bush Justice Department had at least 20 phone contacts concerning Ruby Ridge in the 24 hours before Vicki Weaver was shot,” including two calls involving Barr.   

Barr spent plenty of time organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit.”  He called this, “serving the disadvantaged” pro-bono charitable work, (for FBI sniper, Lon Horiuchi, who already had a federally-paid law firm defending him) that helped tamp down one of the biggest scandals during Barr’s time as Attorney General from 1991 to early 1993.

Barr was responsible for both the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, two federal agencies whose misconduct at Ruby Ridge “helped to weaken the bond of trust that must exist between ordinary Americans and our law enforcement agencies,” according to a 1995 Senate Judiciary Committee report.

When Boundary County, Idaho filed criminal charges against Horiuchi, Barr sprang to action seeking immunity for FBI snipers. He spearheaded efforts to sway the court to dismiss all charges because holding a sniper liable would “severely undermine, if not cripple, the ability of future attorneys general to rely on such specialized units in moments of crisis such as hostage taking and terrorist acts.”

Federal Judge Alex Kozinski warned in his dissent of a new James Bond “007 standard for the use of deadly force” against American citizens, stating, “A group of FBI agents formulated rules of engagement that permitted their colleagues to hide in the bushes and gun down men who posed no immediate threat.  Such wartime rules are patently unconstitutional for a police action.”  Link

BCCI Banking Scandal

The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was a shadowy but very real institution with connections to governments and intelligence services all over the world. BCCI’s owners specialized in evading regulators so that they could speculate and bribe with the depositors’ money. As the fraud mounted and spread, law enforcement officials and bank regulators the world over discovered what the CIA had been trying to hide.

Tampa’s federal prosecutors launched an investigation of money laundering in 1991.  The District Attorney of Manhattan investigated a broad array of bank activities and received zero cooperation from Justice Department and CIA.  And Barr sat on the influential deputies committee of the National Security Council, which controlled the paperwork.

“We couldn’t get records. We couldn’t get witnesses. We could barely get a meeting,” said John Moscow, the lead BCCI prosecutor in Manhattan.

Barr was up for confirmation as attorney general. Moscow said he heard that Democrats on the Judiciary Committee made Barr promise to let the BCCI investigation go ahead.  Trouble was, the big shots were indicted, but got away and Barr did not press Pakistan for their extradition, nor did his successors in the Clinton administration.

Conclusion

AG Barr appears to be someone who would protect the Deep State, not the law, and the Barr family history of Marxism is more than troubling.  The move from extreme leftism to rightwing conservatism resembles the liberal establishment takeover of the old right Republican Constitutionalists by Trotskyite Irving Kristol (father of Bill) and William F. Buckley, CIA Agent, Council on Foreign Relations member, and Yale Skull and Bones member. 

That takeover neutralized the strong Republican support for our Constitutional God given freedoms and squelched the desire to fight the enemies of our Republic.  The ultimate question is…will the DOJ enemies of freedom ever truly meet justice?!

Rule of Law or Coverup General?  You decide.

September 11, 2001

This is a reprint of my thoughts September 2001.  When this was written casualty estimates were 5, 000 or more. Much has changed since then.  A new generation born. We’re still fighting, although sometimes I think we may have lost track of the real enemy. The one who speaks eloquently and dresses in a designer suit.

September 11, 2001

By J. D. Pendry

Does everything except the attack on our country seem trivial to you?  It certainly does to me.  My routine is disrupted, my website is in desperate need of updating, actually, most things I attend to routinely need attention, yet it all seems a little unimportant to me now.  When compared with what 5000 others and countless of their friends and family members and our country have endured, yes it all seems rather trivial.

I have tried to think through what has happened to us during this unforgettable September week.  The images of crumbling symbols of our country are constantly replaying for me both on television and in my mind.  I think of the many people who went to work as on any day and have yet to come home – personal friends included.  This incident, an unspeakable act of mass murder, is running around in my mind searching for reasons.  Our country is in a vulnerable state now, and we must reason through things before we act.  Our shock has turned to grief, our grief to rage and our rage into a demand for revenge.  I believe at the end of the day what is right will prevail but, what we cannot do is match evil for evil.

What follows are a rambling spattering of my thoughts.  They may not seem coherent at times, but this is how I try to figure things out.  I hold no PhD’s, I’m not much of an expert at anything, but I have some things to get off my chest so to speak.  Then I can move on with the rest of America and deal with this blight on humanity.

Religion, what an interesting phenomenon it is.  Over many years in our country, we have systematically removed all references to God from our government, schools and practically any public place where the civil libertarians decide that someone might be exposed to faith when they didn’t want it.  Isn’t it interesting that one of the first places everyone turns for answers and protection in times such as these is God?  Our congress stood together on the steps of the Capitol and sang God Bless America and our President led us in a national prayer service.  I didn’t notice one civil libertarian out there pointing a finger saying you can’t do that.  Why do you think that is?  It’s as I said at the beginning, those thoughts and ideas are just too trivial to deal with right now.  I am comfortable with my faith, but I must admit that I have visited with my creator in prayer a little more than what is usual for me over the past few days.  What I have witnessed recently brings to mind one of my favorite quotes.  I’ve referred to it often and it sits at the top of my web page.

Our God and soldiers we alike adore,
Ev’n at the brink of danger; not before;
After deliverance, both alike requited,
Our God’s forgotten, and our soldiers slighted.
– Francis Quarles, 1632

It would be nice to finally disprove this thought after nearly four hundred years.

Religion has another part in this.  First, we must dispel any thoughts that we are about to enter into a war against Islam.  I heard the President mention the word “crusade” this morning while talking.  I also saw him cringe slightly after saying it.  I know that I cringed, and I know that before I finish typing my thoughts here, it’ll likely be the headline of some newspaper.  This, however, is not a religious war we are about to get into.  Instead, it’s a war against criminals and now I’m going to tell you why I believe that.  Osama Bin Laden and his ilk are criminals.  Very smart and calculating, but criminals all the same.  We already know what happens when thugs end up running a country.  Bin Laden is wealthy and educated.  JDs old country boy theory is that Bin Laden and his kind hope to rule the entire region where he now hides.  I may get some hate mail for this comment, but Bin Laden like the Butcher of Baghdad are nothing more than middle eastern Hitler’s and Americans – all westerners actually – are their Jews.  These criminals use their influence and their knowledge of the Islamic faith to convince poor and undereducated people that the West, led by “The Great Satan” America, is the reason for their predicament.  Using their twisted interpretations, they teach them that the reason they don’t have is because we do have.  They’re also taught that the only way to better the world is to destroy the West, but mostly America and if they give up their lives while doing so, they will get their reward.  Getting the great reward and being a hero appeals to the gullible mind of one who is also destitute.  What motivates criminals is wealth and power.  Bin Laden has the wealth; he is now seeking the power.

Is our country willing?  Are we willing to endure restrictions on our personal liberties that must happen for the defense and safety of our country?  Are we willing to endure more American casualties in what will likely be sustained combat operations unlike anything this country has experienced in years?  Are we willing?

Will we measure up?  We’ve all debated for some time about the quality of America’s new soldiers and whether or not they will measure up in times such as these.  I believe those debates are much like the civil liberties debates, too trivial to pursue just now.  We were attacked in our homeland.  We are not going off to some piss ant mud hole like Somalia with an unclear mission.  Our soldiers, young and old, past and present, have witnessed destruction and the death of innocents perpetuated by a group of people who want to destroy everything we hold dear.  Yep, they’ll measure up – they’ll more than measure up.

We must all continue to deal with our rage.  What is the source of that rage?  For me, it was an unprovoked attack on my country and my way of life.  I was the senseless loss of friends and the thoughts of the dreadful impact it had on their families.  It’s that same rage multiplied 5000 times.  My rage comes from a lifetime of standing ready to actually defend “my” country, then the one time it’s attacked being utterly helpless to do anything but watch it on TV.  Now, I’m left with a need, a deep need, to somehow make it right for those lost and to punish without remorse those who visited this on my home.

What is justice?  Is it bringing the likes of Bin Laden here for a trial?  Relying on my country boy philosophy, I would suggest that to be about as useful as tits on a boar hog.  This justice thing is funny however.  I doubt that you could find any reasonable person that does not believe that we are right and that “justice” is on our side in whatever we pursue.  It’s funny however, because it’s likely that you won’t find one Bin Laden supporter who doesn’t believe it’s on theirs.  The real question is are we as committed to seeing justice brought on this group as they were.

Where do we find the resolve to see this through?  I can’t answer this question for America.  I can only answer it for myself.  Out of the smoke and rubble in New York and at the Pentagon, I see a square-jawed, raw-boned old gentleman picking himself up.  His top hat is missing from his white-haired head and he’s dusting himself off.  There is grim determination on his face.  As he rolls his sleeves, I see a clenched fist and knuckles scarred from previous battles.  This is the spirit of America.  Our tallest buildings and landmarks can be destroyed one by one.  Our spirit cannot.  Behind this old gent, are thousands of souls from this and past battles.  You see Bin Laden we too have faith.  We know that bodies can be destroyed by your kind but souls cannot.  These souls have stood their judgment and soon you will stand yours.  May God have mercy on your soul.

AG WILLIAM BARR, CIA ASSET AND DEEP STATE IMPRESARIO

By Kelleigh Nelson

So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.  Voltaire

There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice. Baron de Montesquieu

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent, we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington

The Rule of Law, (no person or government is above the law) apparently doesn’t apply to members of the Deep State.  Attorneys Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing repeatedly tell Fox News that AG William Barr is cleaning up the intelligence community.  Barr has been at the job for seven months, and as of yet, no one has been charged.

While the many patriots who supported the election of Donald Trump have suffered immeasurably, those who colluded to destroy Trump’s chances of winning and then to frame him with the false Russia narrative, are still running free, writing books and being promoted on mainstream media.  And many of them are still in the AG’s office influencing his actions.

Diana West, author of American Betrayal and The Red Thread stated that when President Trump chose William Barr for his AG, her heart sank, and for good reason.

William Barr and Robert Mueller

Who suggested William Barr?  Why was Barr chosen, given his shocking and deeply criminal/cover-up kingpin background?  My guess would be the President’s closest advisors including the Vice President who was in charge of the Trump transition team. 

The new head of the Justice Department has known and admired the president’s adversary, Robert Mueller, for 30 years, and President Trump seems fine with that.  Their relationship, which Barr described in public during his Senate confirmation hearing, is a reminder of the small size of Washington’s legal and law enforcement worlds.

Barr and Mueller first crossed paths at the Justice Department during the George H. W. Bush administration. When Barr served as attorney general under President George H. W. Bush in 1991 and 1992, Mueller was the assistant attorney general heading up the criminal division.  But the relationship goes further. Their wives are close friends who attend Bible study together, and Mueller attended the weddings of two of Barr’s daughters. 

During his Senate confirmation hearing, Barr praised Mueller’s “distinguished record of public service” and said the special counsel’s probe is proper and should be allowed to proceed without interference. That’s a sharp contrast to the acting attorney general Barr replaced, Matthew Whitaker, who called Mueller’s appointment by his and Barr’s close friend, Rod Rosenstein, “ridiculous” and “a little fishy,” among other things.  Barr’s high praise for Mueller is the nucleus of my unease with the new AG.

Conservatives have long cited the bond between Mueller and Comey, whose firing by Trump prompted the special counsel’s appointment by Rod Rosenstein, as evidence that Mueller was hopelessly conflicted. And now Barr has failed to charge Comey who deliberately leaked government information to someone outside the Department of Justice (DOJ) in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

Robert Mueller’s modus operandi for the last 30 years hasn’t changed. Sidney Powell’s brilliant expose of the Deep State in her book, Licensed to Lie, exposed the core group of federal prosecutors who broke all the rules, made up crimes, hid evidence, and sent innocent people to prison. 

Robert Mueller and his pit bull, Andrew Weissmann, a true villain, ran the cabal of narcissistic federal prosecutors who broke all the rules and rose to great power. This ilk of lying human debris was in charge of the efforts to destroy our duly elected President.  Both Congressman Louie Gohmert’s expose and Louisiana State Senator John Milkovich’s book, Robert Mueller Errand Boy for the New World Order, expose years of corruption and unconscionable conduct…conduct which should have resulted in their disbarment.

William Barr’s Father

William Barr’s father is Donald Barr, who was the headmaster at Dalton School in Manhattan which was founded by progressive educator, Helen Parkhurst who took her cues from developmental psychologist Jean Piaget and education reformers such as John Dewey and Horace Mann.  Jeffrey Epstein became a professor at the Dalton School. 

Donald Barr also had a stint in the precursor to the CIA, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during WWII.  Prior to that, he described himself as having a Marxist upbringing in terms of his own memoirs and ruminations on education.  He had a footnote on the dialectic and stated that as a child he enjoyed being a Marxist and reading Marx and Engels.

Barr wrote a book entitled, Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty? wherein he claimed to have three very strange radical leftist mentors in his life who migrated toward establishment mainstream status basically infiltrating old right conservatism just as did William F. Buckley and Irving Kristol.  Gordon Myrick, Ralph Lynton and Carlton Hayes were the mentors and Diana West is researching all three.

William Barr, CIA Operative

A strong case can be made that William Barr was as powerful and important a figure in the George H. W. Bush apparatus as any other, including Poppy Bush.  As the Attorney General (AG) from 1991 to 1993, Barr wreaked havoc, flaunted the rule of law, and proved himself to be one of the CIA/Deep State’s greatest and most ruthless champions and protectors.  Like father, like son.

  • Barr was a full-time CIA operative, recruited by Langley out of high school, starting in 1971 after Barr attended Columbia University, where he majored in government and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1971. Barr’s youth career goal was to head the CIA.
  • When Bush 41 became CIA Director in 1976, Barr joined the CIA’s “legal office” and Bush’s inner circle, and worked alongside Bush’s longtime CIA enforcers Theodore “Ted” Shackley, Felix Rodriguez, Thomas Clines, and others.
  • Barr stonewalled and destroyed the Church Committee that investigated abuses by the CIA, National Security Agency (NSA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
  • Barr stonewalled and stopped inquiries in the CIA bombing assassination of Chilean opposition leader Orlando Letelier.
  • Barr joined George H. W. Bush’s legal/intelligence team during Bush’s vice presidency (under President Ronald Reagan).  He rose from assistant attorney general to chief legal counsel to attorney general (1991) during the Bush 41 presidency.
  • Barr was a key player in the Iran-Contra operation, if not the most important member of the apparatus, simultaneously managing the operation while also “fixing” the legal end, ensuring that all of the operatives could do their jobs without fear of exposure or arrest. 
  • In his attorney general confirmation, Barr vowed to “attack criminal organizations,” drug smugglers and money launderers. Sounds like hot air!  AG Barr would preserve, protect, cover up, and nurture the apparatus that he helped create, and use Justice Department power to escape punishment.
  • Barr stonewalled and stopped investigations into all Bush/Clinton and CIA crimes, including BCCI banks scandal and BNL CIA drug banking, the theft of Inslaw/PROMIS software, and all crimes of state committed by Bush.  More on this in the next article.
  • Barr left Washington, and went through the “rotating door” to the corporate world, where he took on numerous directorships and counsel positions for major companies. In 2007 and again from 2017, Barr was counsel for politically-connected international Chicago law firm Kirkland & Ellis. Among its other notable attorneys and alumni are Kenneth Starr, John Bolton, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and numerous Trump administration attorneys.  Kirkland and Ellis’s clients including sex trafficker/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital.
  • Barr successfully advocated the pardon of six former White House aides, including those convicted of lying to Congress or withholding information during the investigation. The six-year probe centered around allegations that the Reagan administration had secretly sold weapons to Iran despite an arms embargo, then clandestinely funneled the proceeds to anti-Communist rebels in Nicaragua.

Those pardoned were Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger; Elliott Abrams, former assistant secretary of state; Robert C. McFarlane, former national security adviser, and former CIA officials Clair E. George, Alan D. Fiers and Duane Clarridge. All were in President Ronald Reagan’s Administration.

Arkansas, Iran-Contra and Drugs

Compromised by Terry Reed is the true story of Bill Clinton’s sellout to the CIA.  The expose is Reed’s own eyewitness account.  He was a former CIA asset whose patriotism transformed him into a liability when he refused to turn a blind eye to the Agency’s drug trafficking. While helping the CIA set up its secret operations, he unwittingly compromised his family’s safety, ultimately forcing them to become fugitives.  Realizing that he witnessed the making of a counterfeit President and knew too much about its drug operations, the CIA set out to destroy Reed and his family.

Clinton’s political ambitions and his campaign pledge to create jobs for Arkansans led him to choose CIA support to help in his bid for the Presidency.  He permitted the CIA to use Arkansas factories to make untraceable weapons and he allowed CIA contract agents to train Contra pilots on rural airstrips in support of the war in Nicaragua, effectively evading the Congressional ban on military aid to the Contras.

Clinton split with many other state governments in sending a contingency of the Arkansas National Guard to Honduras to train the Nicaraguan Contras on how to overthrow their Sandinista government. Clinton would also discuss his first-hand knowledge of the operation with now-Trump administration Attorney General William Barr.  As a CIA operative, Barr became the Attorney General of the United States, not once, but twice.

In the 1980s, Terry Reed knew William Barr under a different alias as a CIA liaison to Reagan’s CIA Director William Casey in Arkansas.   Barr was supposed to be running a CIA cutout called Southern Air Transport.  Reed later saw William Barr become AG under Bush 41, and connected him to the man he knew as Robert Johnson. 

Clinton’s secret was shared by then Vice President Bush who was also compromised by his involvement.  The Justice Departments of Reagan, Bush and Clinton orchestrated an ongoing cover-up in the Iran-Contra scandal. 

The issue of notification of Congress about imminent clandestine activities was at the heart of the Iran-Contra scandal when President Ronald Reagan and CIA Director William Casey specifically ordered that lawmakers be kept in the dark about the infamous, covert arms-for-hostages deals with Iran. 

Barr chastised Clinton for his sloppy handling of the delicate operation and his half-brother, Roger Clinton’s, very public fall from grace for cocaine use and then his pardon by Bill. He would later tell Clinton, according to ReedBill, you are Mr. Casey’s fair-haired boy … You and your state have been our greatest asset. Mr. Casey wanted me to pass on to you that unless you f*** up and do something stupid, you’re No. 1 on the short list for a shot at the job that you’ve always wanted. You and guys like you are the fathers of the new government. We are the new covenant.

Clinton was ultimately rewarded with the Presidency.

Attempts to investigate Clinton’s role in the Mena operations and the Iran-Contra affair were allegedly axed by Clinton’s own confidantes, who consistently denied he played a role in the scandal. According to the Wall Street Journal, former IRS investigator William Duncan teamed with Arkansas State Police Investigator Russell Welch in what became a decade-long battle to bring the matter to light. All of the nine separate state and federal probes into the affair failed.

Duncan would later say of the investigations, “[They] were interfered with and covered up, and the justice system was subverted,” and a 1992 memo from Duncan to high-ranking members of the attorney general’s staff notes that Duncan was instructed “to remove all files concerning the Mena investigation from the attorney general’s office.” The attorney general, serving under George H. W. Bush, at that time was William Barr.

Conclusion

In a previous article I asked who vets the nominees for President Trump’s administration?  Apparently, no one vets the administration candidates thoroughly. They use social media to see what the candidate has said about Trump.  Of course, the FBI should investigate every candidate, but the FBI is not trustworthy.  

Stay tuned, there’s much more to come on AG Barr.

Not always as it appears

By J. D. Pendry

To begin with, I have a crooked ankle.  Permanently out of alignment according to the Surgeon.  Younger than my son and had styling gel in his hair.  Someday, he added, you may need another surgery fusing the joint to eliminate chronic arthritic pain.  He was just a ball of joy that day, pointing out that I should be able to get around just fine on my rebuilt foot.  The one with a metal plate and a bucket of screws holding it together.  I left hoping corrosion or rust were not issues for future concern.

Because of my crooked ankle my foot strikes exactly backwards from what it should leading to callous buildup on my instep, the ball of my foot, my big toe, and in the area where there was once a normal arch.  There’s constant stress on my lower leg and abnormal pressure to the inside of my knee.  Yep, I’m practically up to my butt in chronic pain.  But, it’s only on one side.   In case you’re wondering, no pain medication other than the old Soldier food group ibuprofen.  Our mantra, with SOS and ibuprofen we can complete any mission.  Additionally, I just pound on the other leg until it aches equally.  Uniformity.  They taught me that in the Army.

One night right before Christmas, some years ago, a man driving a pickup truck in the opposite direction from mine decided we should meet in the middle of an icy bridge.  Head on.  The foot in question was on the brake pedal.  Fruitlessly, I might add.  A white knuckled grip on the steering wheel and the force of the crash also broke my left arm.  But it healed fine and practically straight.

That explains to the other customers at the Nail and Spa, mostly women, why an old guy at whom they often shoot a curious glance and occasionally a little grin gets a monthly spa pedicure.  They shouldn’t look too closely at me as I notice some of them have rather large feet. Not the slender dainty feminine feet my mind’s eye expects.  With feet so large, I would be hesitant about drawing attention to them by making my toenails sparkle right there below multiple ankle bracelets and the butterfly tattoo.  While they get paint and glitter the woman taking care of my feet, much like a farrier preparing to shoe a horse, brings out the rasp and grates away the dead skin – appears a couple of pounds of it each time especially the bad one.  Old Drill Sergeant feet Jimbo.  Remember those?  She massages the soreness out of my bad foot and leg and I light foot it right out of there totally secure in my masculinity with an appointment scheduled for next month.  All thanks to Suzie-Q who drug me there under protest the first time.

On our last visit, Suzie-Q and I were sitting in our high-tech spa chairs, me with the back massage working, feet soaking when several women came in.  Then a guy walked in.  As the lady who runs the place was directing everyone to chairs, etc., with a puffed-out chest the guy demanded in what I thought was an overly exaggerated deep voice that she takes all of the women first.  She ignored him and told him where to sit.  Without objection, he promptly complied.  As the woman worked on his feet, he spent the entire time talking to the young man working on the lady’s next to him – about football.  I sensed a little insecurity.  But I could be wrong.  He paid with a gift card and was reminded to come back monthly.

My favorite shoes are the ones with no backend.  You just slide your feet in and move out.  The heel of my bad foot is wider than normal.  I assume to accommodate the surgical hardware.  So, the shoes are a logical solution.  I remember a time in my life when I’d see a man wearing such shoes and roll my eyes just a bit.  At the time, the sight wasn’t in tune with my masculine psyche.  I’ve matured some and hopefully become slightly wiser.  Nowadays men are wearing orange Crocs, skinny jeans and man buns and not just at Walmart.  But I make no judgments.   Cold be a good reason for all of that, or not.

In one of his short stories, The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether, published in 1845, Edgar Allan Poe wrote:

“You are young yet, my friend,” replied my host, “but the time will arrive when you will learn to judge for yourself of what is going on in the world, without trusting the gossip of others.  Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.

That’s a rule us mortals all too often break.  What we read, hear, and see is not always as it appears.  And as my Dad, rest his soul, used to remind, make sure your brain is in gear before you put your mouth into operation.

Yep, spa pedicures for grumpy old men.  Monthly, I highly recommend it.  Especially if your physique, which tends to have a mind of its own as we age, is a hindrance to reaching your toes.  Life is good.

God Given Talent Got Any? and One Size Fits All

By J. D. Pendry

What is God given talent?  Whether we own up to it or not, we all have something.  You’ve heard sports pontificators declare gifted athletes have a lot of natural ability.  You hear it about entertainers, great writers, great orators…. Whatever it’s called, it had to come from somewhere.  If you view the world as I do, it all comes from God our creator.  But that raises issues for the Godless, doesn’t it?  Self-centered and world-influenced people who achieve all by themselves and are unwilling to credit anyone, mortal or supernatural, for helping along the way.  Personally, I like the assurance of knowing that the most powerful Force ever has my back, controls my future, and works hard to keep my compass pointed in the right direction.  I just have to make sure I listen.

I’ve heard some great athletes, when being congratulated on a spectacular performance, before saying anything else declare they give all Glory to God.  Usually, it’s a live interview otherwise we might not hear that part.  I saw a recent interview of Ashley Batcher who starred in the movie Unplanned.  She was asked how she felt about the possibility of being blacklisted by Hollywood.  She said she didn’t care adding that God gave her the talent to act and she was going to use it to glorify Him.  I saw that interview on a Fox morning program, but couldn’t locate a link of the clip.  Take a few minutes to view this video interview by Rev. Franklin Graham at Facebook Watch.  Awesome.

All of us have talents.  Gifts of some sort.  When we do not know God, we leave the door open for other forces to use our talents and direct our lives.

Good and evil both increase at compound interest.  That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.   C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

To steal from Rush Limbaugh, let’s assume we all have talents on loan from God.  But if we do not accept that there is a God, what authority guides use of our talents?  Deep question isn’t it.  Is it the reigning culture?  Is it some other supernatural force?  If we don’t believe in God, are we not vulnerable to some other life guide?  One without boundaries? Realize here, that I’ve included you in another of my self-chats.

The favorite questions for non-believers and those trying to justify for themselves their own place in the world are:  If there is a God, why did he let that mass shooting happen?  Why did he let the Holocaust or other genocides happen?  Why did he let 9/11 happen?

Do you feel the answer needling you just a bit?

God didn’t allow those atrocities.  Just as he did not allow Himself to be removed from our public schools – taken away from our children when they’re most vulnerable.  Just as he did not allow us to kill more than 60 million unborn children.

People who did not know God are responsible for these acts.

Following our most recent mass shooting in Texas, all the politicians were out there looking to remove inanimate objects from the hands of law-abiding citizens.  There are all sorts of ways to restrict freedom and taking away weapons of war being tossed around.  I heard one former Congressman, now news commentator, declare that there must be a bipartisan push to solving this problem adding there is no one size fits all solution.

Oh, but there is Congressman.  We can invite God back into our shattered lives and culture.

Then you will win favor and a good name
    in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:4-6 (NIV)
