The rabbi and the pastor

Pastor James Wickstrom questions Rabbi Abe Finkelstein in a remarkably candid and unselfconsciously crazy interview:

“You’re a lying Jew! That’s what you are!”

“Ayyy... you could say that….”

Real? Spoof? Can't say. But it is hilarious!

Swindler's List update

Morris Olmer - former Connecticut state legislator and self described "big liberal" who was the ringleader of a mortgage fraud ring based out of New Haven. Olmer invented a complex scheme, with phoney front companies, for defrauding private lenders and the US government out of $4.75 million USD.

Olmer sought out "straw buyers" who were paid to apply for fraudulently inflated mortgages for homes they couldn’t afford. The straw buyers would accept mortgage money from the government, then purchase the home for the actual, lesser price, funnel the difference to the conspiracy, then abandon the home to foreclosure. Olmer and his co-conspirators left a trail of blighted properties throughout southern Connecticut. Sentenced to five years in a Federal slammer.

An American near future scenario

Inflation - gasoline goes to $9.99.9/10 per gallon. Happy Meals: $29.99.

Massive unemployment. Bank failures: your life savings disappear overnight - but not your mortgage!  Shortages of basic commodities of life. Fifteen people living in one house.  Utilities brown outs. The Internet goes down. Wild rumors. People resort to bartering for basic necessities of life.

Government efforts to remediate the situation only seem to exacerbate them.

Americans finally wake up to the consequences of being suckers - and blame everyone else. Ration cards. Food riots. Race riots. Violent crime wave. Gasoline thieves. Hunger for Whites, starvation for Blacks. Black markets. Women, some as young as girls, prostitute themselves for a can of corn.  A proliferation of radical political groups.

Local law enforcement can't contain the swelling violence - and in fact are the focus of much of the violence. The military is called out to patrol the streets and maintain order. Military deployment on roads and highways, especially in big cities, where checkpoints are set up at all major intersections. You'd better have your ID.  Government false flag operations: particularly attacks by "right wing paramilitary groups" that are actually covert elements of the US government. American troops return from their overseas bases to garrison the US as martial law is declared.

Curfews. ID checks. "Temporary" suspension of habeas corpus, Posse Comitatus, search warrants and the rest of the Constitution after the President declares a state of national emergency. Gun ownership (except for the government) is outlawed. Private citizens are ordered to hand over their guns in or face draconian penalties. People are also ordered to turn in precious metals and "excess" food to the government. Those who don't are prosecuted as "hoarders".

Warrantless, sometimes violent, searches of private homes in joint police/military sweeps. Guns, food, alcohol, precious metals and other "contraband" are seized - but especially guns.

Mass arrests of dissidents and others considered enemies of the state: trade unionists, "antisemites", anti-Zionists, uncooperative clerics, "hoarders", black marketeers, gun hiders, outspoken politicians, members of outlawed political groups, those who evade police checkpoints and roadblocks....  FEMA concentration camps scattered around the country are quickly filled.

Soldiers begin to rebel at what they are being ordered to do. Soon, mutinies erupt. Efforts to put these down fail - mainly due to the incompetence of generals who got their stars due to their political reliability more than thier leadership ability. A leading general finally realizes that the military occupation of the US by the US is becoming impossible in the face of so much resistance and, with the support of other leading officers, unleashes a coup. Civil war erupts. As the political situation deteriorates for the ruling elite, UN forces are called in. Canada and Mexico invade the US. The American generals are victorious and proclaim a "new democracy" - which is anything but.

As America recedes, Russia and China cooperate, and begin flexing their military muscles. Israel is warned, then threatened....

But... who knows?

The stunning secret about election night

This is from Most Holy Family Monastery. How do you say "vote fraud" in Yiddish?

Shut up! You don't get a lawyer!

On New Year's Eve, while vacationing in his holiday haven in Hawaii, Barack Obama signed into law, S1867, The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In the earliest version of the NDAA, BO had publicly threatened to veto it, saying he had reservations about such a dictatorial bill. But in fact, behind the scenes the White House had been lobbying for STRONGER language, giving the President even more power than the sponsors of the bill had originally intended. This he finally got. The supporters of the act claim it's a necessary corollary to the "War on Terror". But "terrorist" is a plastic word and it can be shaped to fit anyone the ruling elite don't like.

The NDAA has a detention clause which gives the President, or a successor, sweeping powers to abrogate the Bill of Rights and due process by arresting suspected "belligerents" and sending them to a military prison, indefinitely without charge or trial. Rather than inform Americans about such a threat to their Constitutional liberties, the American msm relegated the story to the back pages. They, as usual, were much more concerned about the tramp of the week's latest woes. BO has promised that his administration will not use the extreme power the NDAA gives him. Sure....

Since 1878 the Posse Comitatus Act has restricted the powers of local governments and law enforcement agencies from using military personnel to enforce the laws of the land. The detention clause in the NDAA is effectively a death certificate for the Posse Comitatus Act. Perhaps Obama will actually make good on his word and won't implement the dictatorial powers contained in the NDAA, but what about the next guy?

So, who might these "terrorists" be that Senator Lindsey "Shut up! You don't get a lawyer!" Graham is so worried about? So worried that he'd trash the US Constitution in order to save the US? Well, it isn't necessarily Al-Qaeda. It could be you! If you are one or more of the following, you could be a "terrorist" according to the US government:


You (possibly).

A returning veteran.

Someone who owns guns.

Someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed.

Someone who has more than seven days of food in their home.

Someone who opposes abortion.

Someone who opposes same-sex marriage.

Someone who opposes restrictions on firearms ownership.

Someone who opposes the immigration inundation of the US.

Someone who opposes social welfare programs.

Someone who opposes continuation of free trade agreements.

Someone who fears communist regimes.

Someone who opposes a one world government.

Someone who bemoans the decline of the US.

Someone who's upset with the offshoring of American jobs to China, India, etc.

All these people were indicted by the 2009 Dept. of Homeland Security report on "Rightwing Extremism". The Feds have since tempered their language and amended the report accordingly; but it is certain beyond a doubt that the earlier version reflects the real thinking of the Dept. of Homeland Security.

All that glitters

Think of the gold industry as being like an aircraft carrier: you probably don't think, see or hear much about it, but seen or not, it's very, very big; and it can hurt you or your country big time.

Folks, whether we know it or not, a serious problem is afoot: fake gold bullion is circulating through the world's gold markets; and it looks like the US government is deeply involved. Three years ago the Chinese government ordered an assay on some gold bars they'd just received as payment on a balance of trade matter. The bars turned out to be be fakes... tungsten cores covered by a 1.5mm thick plating of real gold. Within a few hours of this discovery the Chinese gold dealers who'd mediated the transaction were all arrested. But it turned out they were innocent. The gold bars originated within the US; and were in fact from the bullion reserves at Fort Knox.

So, how does something like this affect you? Ultimately, exactly like this: suppose YOU bought some gold that turned out to be fake....

China, the world's premier knock off market country, has decided to jump into the fake gold market itself and is now minting fake gold coins. Apparently these are of a very high quality and can pass most musters. Gold buyers must be very careful to predetermine that those Krugerrands selling at Ebay aren't fakes. It's gotten bad enough that some are now saying to avoid gold altogether and to buy silver instead; but it doesn't take a degree in rocket science to see that with a little re-tooling there's a profit to be had in fake silver too. The amount of fake gold now circulating is undoubtedly a measure of why gold spots haven't risen as they should have, given the weakened state of the dollar.

Gold is used extensively by governments and the big banks. Governments use gold to address balance of trade issues and to maintain public confidence in their paper currencies. Banks use gold to underwrite their loans. With a little imagination one can figure out how an incestuous relationship will develop between the banks and governments.

That the so called gold reserves at Fort Knox are non-existent can be easily deduced: at one time US coins contained actual gold and silver and had a worth equivalent to their face value: a silver dollar contained a dollar's worth of silver, etc. But the coins we use today are only slugs - with almost no intrinsic value. Are we seriously expected to believe that for the bank/government axis would debauche their own coinage, but would never debauche their bullion?

As I mentioned above, this is a serious problem for you and me - just as if we'd bought fake gold coins ourselves. How? Because governments and banks ALWAYS pass the bill for their bad decisions on to their clients. Due to our debased currency and debauched bullion, Americans are undoubtedly going to be living lower within a few years. Most of us anyway. That is, those of us who aren't minting our own phony gold coins....

Downwind from Babylon

Remember poor, pitiful Rodney King? Remember James Byrd - dragged to death behind a car? Of course you do! You literally heard of nothing else for weeks on end. Well, here are some stories you NEVER heard about on the nightly news. Thanks to Pat Healey at for doing much of the leg work here:

Streator, IL - Patricia Stansfield, a 46-year-old White woman, was abducted by a negro male who had stolen a car belonging to one of her friends.  Ms. Stansfield was tied to the car's rear bumper and proceeded to drag her two miles down a highway. The dragging caused her death. The media blacked out national coverage of this murder, although they had sensationalized a very similar murder in Jasper, Texas, involving a White killer and a negro victim only a few months earlier.

Little Rock, Arkansas - Laurie White, a White woman, attacked by a negro felon, was beaten, raped and hung by an electrical extension cord until she was dead.

South Carolina – A White female, Melissa McLaughlin, is raped, tortured and skinned alive in a tub of bleach by seven negroes.

Jacksonville, FL – A mentally retarded white man, Gregory Griffith, is beaten and stomped unconscious by a group of blacks and died a few days later. The negroes admitted to the police beating Griffith because “he was White”.

Poughkeepsie, NY - Kendall Francois, a negro strangled eight White women and kept some of the bodies in his house for over a year.

Kansas City, MO – A negro male shoots two White co-workers, Michael Scott and Traci Riehle. Scott is killed and Riehle is critically injured. Police find a note referring to “blood sucker supreme white people”.

Alexandria, VA – An eight year old White child, Kevin Shiffiet, is killed when his throat is slit by a negro male who also stabs his 80 year old great grandmother and punches her in the chest. Police find a rambling, handwritten note stating. “Kill them raceess whiate kidd’s anyway”.

Burlington, NC – A ten year old White child, Tiffany Long, is abducted, raped, sodomized, sexually tortured and murdered by two negro males and a negro female. The negro female rams a broomstick up Long's vagina and rectum, killing her. The parents were prohibited from seeing their dead daughter’s body. The story was reported only by the local media - who claimed that race had nothing to do with it.

Fayetteville, NC – Two White women, Tracy Lambert and Susan Moore, are carjacked by a group of seven negroess and Hispanics then taken to a field and shot execution style in the head. This murder was part of a gang initiation. The bullets found in the victims’ heads were painted blue, the Crips gang color.

Alton, Illinois – A White male, Richard Skelton, is attacked and stomped to death by a group of 25 negroes while negro onlookers yell, “Kill the cracker”.

Cleveland, OH – A five year old White girl, Devon Duniver, was stabbed to death by a negro teenager who said after the murder, “She got what she deserved.”

Kansas City, MO – A six year old White child, Jake Robel, is dragged to death by a negro carjacker who drove away even as the boy being dragged screaming outside of the car door while tangled in the seat belt.

Buffalo, NY – A White man, Gary Traska, is stomped to death by three negroes. Many of his organs were actually split apart from the savage beating.

Media, PA. Aimee Willard, a White coed at George Mason University was in her car when a negro male crashed into it. When she got out to examine the damage, the negro attacked her with a crowbar and beat her to death. He then removed her clothing and raped her corpse. Afterward he threw the body into an empty lot.

Denver, CO. Brandy Duvall, a 14-year-old White girl, was kidnapped at a bus stop by seven members of the Bloods. They drove to a remote house and took turns raping her, then raped her with a broom handle. Finally, after stabbing her 28 times with a knife, they dumped her body in a ditch.

Fayetteville, NC – A White soldier, Donald Lange, is attacked by seven begro soldiers. Lange is rendered a vegetable. The media blacked out national coverage of this attack, although they gave lengthy national publicity to another crime involving a negro drug dealer killed by a White soldier, in the same town.

Salt Lake City, UT – A negro male breaks into the house of two Whites, Amy Clinton and Aaron Warren. The negro stabs both women, killing Amy Clinton and seriously injuring Aaron Warren.

Michigan - Kayla Rolland, six years old, is murdered by a negro classmate who'd brought a gun to school Both the murderer and the victim were in the first grade. The negro had a history of assaulting White children, on one occasion stabbing a classmate with a knife. The media gave some limited coverage of the murder, but concealed the fact that the killer was a negro.

Racine, WI - A negro gang member, Nazeer Ghani, fires into a crowd of White concert-goers while shouting racial epithets, killing father of two, Joe Rowan. Although identified by 30 witnesses, police release the killer for “lack of evidence.”

Miami, FL – Seven Whites are murdered by the negro only Yahweh Cult; whose leader orders the members to cut off and return the ears of the victims as proof of the murders. The trial, which you never heard anything about, was conducted at the same time as the Rodney King trial.

Charleston, South Carolina - Troy Knapp and his friend Gary Thornburg were riding their bicycles when they happened onto a group of male negroes. The mob attacked the two White men, knocking Gary unconscious and beating Troy with various objects including pipes. A large portion of Knapp’s skull had to be removed to allow for swelling in his brain. A damaged portion of his brain had to be surgically removed. He is seriously and permanently injured, and will never recover from the injuries of this beating.

Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania- A negro named Ronald Taylor shot five Whites, killing three. A negro acquaintance stated that Taylor had said, “I’m gonna kill all White people.”

Wichita, Kansas- Two negro males broke in to a house and attacked five young Whites, all in their twenties, threatening them with guns. After driving their victims to an ATM and ordering them to withdraw money, the kidnappers took them to a deserted soccer field. There they raped the two White women in front of the men, including the fiancĂ© of one of the young men. Finally they ordered the five White victims to kneel and shot them all execution style. Only one of the young women was not killed. She walked more than a mile, naked and bleeding through the snow until she found help.

Seattle, Washington- Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday” celebrations in that city were disrupted when gangs of negro males roamed the crowd of thousands attacking White men and women, killing one and injuring 72. They were heard yelling racial epithets during their attacks.

Columbus, OH - Five year old Emily Rimel is kidnapped, raped and murdered by a 25 year old negro, Lindsey Bruce.

Charlottesville, Virginia– Police arrested 9 male negroes for a series of vicious gang assaults against White students in that college town. Of the nine arrested, one was an adult and the rest juveniles, one of them a local high school football “star.” Even though some of the negroes told cops that they intentionally chose their victims based on their race, authorities have declined to classify the attacks as “racially motivated.”

Orlando, FL - White sixteen year old HS student Mark Thornton is murdered by three older negroes, who attack him at school and fracture his skull.

North Carolina - 12 year old Emily Haddock was home sick with strep throat when her home was invaded by four negroes. Emily was shot twice in the head and left to die as her home was ransacked.

Tulsa, OK - Two White college students, Ethan Nichols, 21 and Carissa Horton, 18 were walking through a park when they were acosted by two negro males who robbed them, then executed them with shots to the head.

Knoxville, TN – Channon Christian and Chris Newsome (see photos at top) are carjacked by a group of five negroes. Taken to one of the perp's house, both are bound, sodomized, raped, tortured, then murdered. Channon Christian was douched with and forced to drink bleach. She then was stuffed, with a plastic bag over her head, into a trash can where she suffocated.

Etc, etc, etc....

Sheriff Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ

Sheriff Arpaio is in the news fairly often, usually in a negative way. He runs a tough jail, where the prisoners wear pink uniforms and are housed in tent cities, which he calls "concentration camps". Predictably, libs hate him. But then they hate everyone.

Arpaio recently came out with the results of a local citizen inquiry called, "The Cold Case Posse" that investigated Barack Obama's long form birth certificate. The results of the inquiry were this: the LFBC is unquestionably an electronic forgery - and a damn poor one at that.

His team, on their own time and dime, also looked into BO's 1980 Selective Service card, and determined that it is probably a forgery too. It looks as if the USPS date stamp was applied to the card by taking a 2008 stamp, cutting out the "20" then turning the "08" upside down and using it to strike "80" on the card. The problem is that USPS stamps of the time would have said "1980", not just "80".

Finally, the Cold Case Posse asked to see the microfilm INS records, kept by the National Archives, which show the arrival and departure of everyone who came or went from Hawaii for the month of August, 1961 - the month BO was born. This is the time BO's mother, Ann Dunham Obama, would have arrived in Hawaii - if BO's critics are correct and in fact BO wasn't born in Hawaii as claimed. The records of All Hawaiian arrivals for the dates August 1-7, 1961 have disappeared from the files. Follow up questions by the Cold Case Posse concerning this anomaly have gone unanswered by the National Archives.

Predictably, during the Q&A that followed the presentation, the reporters in the room swarmed in to personally attack Arpaio and impugn his motives. Being children of the lie, liberals, and most reporters are liberals, are wont to attack the truth and truthsayer wherever they find them. Sheriff Arpaio is a courageous man. Let's pray he doesn't come to an unexpected end.

Liberalism: a mental disorder characterized by delusions of moral and intellectual superiority.

Despite their supposed reputation as "intellectuals", it’s very easy to debate – and beat – libs. What’s important to remember is you have to avoid their gangpile behavior, which they mistake for the strength of their arguments. You used to see this s*** all the time on Bill Maher’s old show, “Politically Incorrect (which was anything but) - three libs ganging up on one (weak) conservative. That’s how they like to operate.

Like an algebra problem, you first need to isolate the lib, then catch him on the horns of a philosophical dilemma:

Fitz: “Do you agree that Blacks should be equal to Whites?”

Lib: “Of course!”

Fitz: “Just out of curiosity, who really wants to be “equal”; the strong or the weak?”

Lib: “You’re a racist!!!”

Also, you can snap kick them in the balls.

Some notable Jews in the US government - nowadays pretty much a closed kosher shop. This should clear up why all those unanswered questions about 911 go unanswered. As always with them, Jews work both sides of the street: Labor/Tory, Republican/Democrat, liberal and conservative, left and right, National Socialist and Communist, Women versus men, Christians versus Muslims, Germans versus French, Eskimos versus walruses, frog versus fly....

A mid-summer's night

There seemed to be a sheer wall of glass, lightly amber colored, with waves and swirls, like one sees in blown glass from the 1800's. On the other side of the glass was a vast steppe which spread out in low undulating hills towards distant yet clear horizons. The sky was mildly overcast and the grass appeared to have endured a very dry summer: it was short, no more than 8 inches tall, and was yellowed. The only thing that stood out in this epic of desolation was a lone tree, about 250 yards distant.

The tree was very attractive. It was thickly covered with very dark green leaves. The canopy was as broad as it was tall - some twenty five feet.  And the bottom of the canopy, seven feet from the ground, was trimmed flat, as though some grazing animal had expertly cropped the lowest branches up to that height. A deep and pleasant shade lay beneath.

Soon, a group of about twelve people were seen walking across the steppe toward the tree. When they reached it they briefly rested in its shade, then after a minute or two continued on their way.

When they had gone another group of about the same number followed in their path, heading toward the tree. But when this group was about 100 yards from it a terrible storm erupted all around them. The bottom 100 feet of an F5 tornado, accompanied by intense flashes of light, violently churned the earth where the group was standing. Just as quickly as it began it ended. Nothing of the people remained; but nothing else had been harmed despite the great violence of the storm.

The observer was awestruck: "That was ferocious! Who were those people?" he asked no one in particular.
"Those were the rich." an unexpected, quiet voice answered from behind.
"The rich? Then who were the first group?"
"Those were poor people."
The observer replied, "If that's the case with them then it'd better to be a poor person living on the streets of Calcutta!"
"That is quite true."
"The rich should be warned about this! Why hasn't anyone warned them?"
The other answered, "They've been warned many times. See, it is all in the Bible. If people understood this they wouldn't envy the rich, they would pity them."
