  1. Further proof that Israel has complete control over the USA Government(Call me an anti-Semite if you like, I couldn’t care less)but that is a fact and “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored”….Aldous Huxley

  2. 2014, forward to 2019: another half-decade, and the mostly Jewish (who are uber-focused, -rabid, -influential and in charge) Zionists have further tightened their chokehold on Ziomonster-Occupied WashDC. A complete sell-out, SRO for traitors pandering to and obeying the diktats of utmost evil. The hell with the US; we brought our fate upon ourselves: I say pity the Palestinians — the ultimate-ultimate victim — over all.

    Dr. Philip Giraldi, and the President of CNI/Director of IfAmericansKnew Alison Weir, are national treasures, patriots, truth tellers. Ifonlyweknew….

    • Leland, I do this with some hesitation because I’m afraid to re-trace my steps…it may be the fault of my aging computer, inadequate upgrades or whatever, but I want to let you and potential others know this so as to avoid possible problems.

      I linked to the site you provided and was IMMEDIATELY greeted with flashing, alarm-filled screens screaming that my computer had been compromised, my entire system would be wiped out in a matter of seconds, etc. I frantically x’d out the multiple screens, logged off my e-mail account, and returned my computer to its “still” state (I’m a computer idiot so am undoubtedly not using state-of-the-art terminology…). I thank my lucky stars that, the next time I timidly opened to my home page, no trace of the alarms greeted me, and I’ve had no problems since. Obviously, I’ll not “push my luck” by trying the link again! Best regards, Bob

  4. The only way I would EVER vote again would be for this man…or Ron Paul. There exist very few stoic persons able to calmly point out the elephant in the room mostly because they all are afraid for their selfish lives or take the first bribe that comes their way. For a war mongering nation there sure are too many cowards of the most immoral habits and outcomes, never being able to see the shame that covers them nor pride that blinds them. DC needs to be cleansed of the evil that oppresses the world, first and foremost by cutting the umbilical cord to israel and restoring the sovereign nation of Palestine with her own people. Too many enemies and traitors within our gates…foreign occupiers that we should morally hate and oust.
