9-11 Cop Breaks Silence
By Dave Gahary -
The New Jersey police officer responsible for capturing five Israelis who filmed and celebrated while the World Trade Center towers burned has broken his silence, agreeing to a Sept. 16 exclusive interview with AMERICAN FREE PRESS.
As AFP readers are no doubt aware, these are the same Israelis who were working under the direction of Urban Moving Systems, a Mossad front company at the center of Israeli involvement in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Sgt. Scott DeCarlo has never spoken to the media about the details of that day except for two 30-second cameo appearances in Internet videos from undetermined sources. In fact, DeCarlo confirmed that this is the first, and last, interview he will ever grant in regard to this subject.
DeCarlo revealed to AFP hidden details about the events of 9-11 that mainstream media venues should have uncovered 10 years ago, if not for their near-total blackout of meaningful coverage where Israel is concerned.
Although not scheduled to work that day, DeCarlo reported anyway and "was posted on the highway" to prevent traffic from entering New York City.
"There was a BOLO, which is a 'Be On the Look Out' for a particular van, perhaps loaded with explosives," explained DeCarlo, "that may have been on its way to destroy the George Washington Bridge."
DeCarlo explained: "It [the suspicious van] happened to come our way, and I grabbed my sergeant [DeCarlo himself was a patrolman at that time] and said: 'Hey, man, that's our van.' It wasn't the exact license plate given reported—it was off by one numeral—but I said: 'That's gotta be it; it's just too close.'"
He continued: "The van was coming off the [N.J.] Turnpike trying to get on Route 3. Traffic was rolling at two miles an hour, so we got in front of the van on foot, weapons drawn, and stopped it."
All five of the Israeli spies refused to exit their vehicle, so DeCarlo was forced to get physical.
"We asked them to get out of the van, but they didn't listen," he said. "So, we . . . put them in handcuffs and did it as quickly as possible."
AFP asked DeCarlo why he thought the Israelis refused to follow his orders. DeCarlo was unsure, but asked this writer, "You ever have a gun pointed at your head?"
DeCarlo then described what happened after the spies were dragged from their van. "When we removed them, one of the guys that was rather chatty said: 'We're not your enemy, we're your friend. Our enemies are your enemies,'" DeCarlo said. "At that point they said they were from Israel. They kept saying, 'Hey, we're on your side.'"
"We brought them over to the New Jersey State Police holding cells in the Meadowlands Stadium, and that's the last I saw of them," he said. Shortly after that, the FBI reportedly took over. The five Israelis were held for 10 weeks, but were eventually deported to Israel on charges of immigration violations. In November 2001, they appeared on an Israeli TV talk show discussing how they were in the U.S. "to document the event."
Sgt. DeCarlo asked AFP to request interested parties not to contact him.
Israel Positions Nuclear Subs Off Iran
By Keith Johnson -
Israel's submarine fleet is by far the most secretive of its strategic long-range manned arsenals. Unlike the Jewish state's other seafaring crafts, these submersibles never dock in any ports except their own, and their missions are such highly guarded secrets that only a few, even on board, are privy to what their assignment is and where it will next take them.
"Nobody knows where you are except for your crew and your direct commanders," said a former "Lt. Col. Oded" in a recent interview with Israel's Ynet news service. "Even your family doesn't know. They don't know what you're doing or when you'll be back. They know nothing."
Oded says he served 20 years in the Israeli navy and was commander of theLeviathan, one of two state-of-the-art 800-class Dolphin submarines that were donated to Israel by the German government. The Israelis later bought a third Dolphin for $350 million under an agreement in which German taxpayers would absorb 50 percent of the cost.
Though the whereabouts of these mobile doomsday machines are generally kept under wraps, the Israelis occasionally make their presence known. When that happens, the message is clear that they mean business and are prepared to strike at any given moment. That's precisely what happened in July 2009 when Israel sent one of its Dolphins on a high-profile cruise of the Suez Canal. Although the official line out of Israel was that they were merely conducting standard naval drills, it was clear to all that the real purpose of their presence was to flaunt their strategic reach in Iran's face.
In June 2010, all three of Israel's Dolphins arrived off the coast of the vilified Persian nation. The Sunday Times reported, "The submarines of Flotilla 7—Dolphin, Tekumaand Leviathan—[were] sent in response to Israeli fears that ballistic missiles developed by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, a political and military organization in Lebanon, could hit sites in Israel, including air bases and missile launchers."
The article added, "The deployment is designed to act as a deterrent, gather intelligence and potentially to land Mossad agents."
It's widely believed that these three submarines are often rotated, with only one maintaining a constant vigil in the region for any extended period.
According to a recent UPI article, "Five Dolphins is considered the minimum number required to keep two boats on patrol off Iran at all times."
That's why, to bring the fleet up to their desired quota, two more Dolphins are being constructed for Israel under a deal reached in 2006 whereby the German government agreed to absorb one-third of a total $1.27 billion price tag.
In July 2011, a deal was finalized for a sixth Dolphin submarine that will again be subsidized by Germany under the same arrangement. According to Der Spiegel, the subsidy was being offered to Israel as part of reparations for the "Holocaust." The first of the three is slated for delivery to Israel by 2012.
Unlike Iran, Israel is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has illicitly pursued a weapons program that, by some estimates, has put more than 600 nuclear-tipped warheads at its disposal.
Wall Street Invaded
By Victor Thorn -
Beginning on Sept. 17, three organizations—Adbusters, Occupy Wall Street and U.S. Days of Rage-unleashed a campaign to radically disrupt, for two straight months, the heart of America's financial sector, in New York City. Events are also planned in 10 other cities, including Washington, D.C.
One of these groups, Adbusters (aka Culture Jammers), envisions a scene reminiscent of the recent London riots that devastated England's commercial district. On Aug. 10, Adbusters proclaimed, "Revolution is not a dinner party, nor an essay, nor a painting, nor a piece of embroidery; it cannot be advanced softly, gradually, carefully, considerately, respectfully, politely, plainly and modestly. A revolution is an insurrection."
When it comes to an honest appraisal of the Occupy Wall Street protests, radio talk show host Dave Orts of Push Back Now couldn't have been more forthright about the participants. On Sept. 13 he told this writer: "What most gets under their skin is that other people have more money than they do. Money is a great addiction, and today's youth have a desire to ascend up the financial ladder. They know the money is already there, but it's being held and not released by those on Wall Street."
Orts provided a fitting example. "When a 22-year-old college kid paying taxes on a summer job sees Jeffrey Immelt working on President Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board while his company General Electric didn't pay a cent in income taxes last year, they know something's wrong."
Although many Americans don't agree with the Days of Rage tactics, Orts gives them credit for being mobilized. "In order for us to remove a rock from our shoe, we have to take action. The rock doesn't go away on its own." However, he finds a certain amount of amusement in their naïve aspirations. "If anyone thinks they're going to peacefully assemble and take down Wall Street," Orts laughed, "on 9-11 both towers came crashing to the ground, but Wall Street still only remained closed for a few days."
The end result may also be a bit misguided. Orts noted: "The Days of Rage icon used on their posters is a communist model. The name Days of Rage connotes a group of people that are deeply disturbed by a societal evolution that is not fitting to what they want. Yet they view President Obama's political appointees and union leaders feeding off the top tier of government, and they feel betrayed. The promised redistribution of wealth isn't coming their way, so in essence they're saying, 'If you keep screwing around, you won't be around any longer.'"
WHAT THEY WANT
For their part, U.S. Days of Rage organizer Alexa O'Brien and her cohorts have made five demands:
1) Money should be removed from "buying politicians" who feed the Wall Street beast.
2) The resources of our nation shall no longer be used to coddle and benefit banksters and their minions.
3) The U.S. government should diligently rein in the parasitic destruction wreaked by Wall Street.
4) Our nation should no longer be held hostage by "too big to fail" banks.
5) Solutions should be found that stop the Federal Reserve from stealing our future.
O'Brien summarized their goals. "We have no choice but to focus on the sources of money. Both the Democratic and Republican parties set the bankster agenda because of the money."
BRINGING THE YOUTH
When asked to describe why leftist youths were so frustrated that they'd try to occupy Wall Street, Eric Verlo of Not My Tribe told this writer on Sept. 12: "Barack Obama promised hope and change, but it never happened. Now we're taking real change to the streets to show him how it's done."
He continued: "Our eyes have been opened to the fact that presidents don't have as much power as we thought they did. But compared to George Bush, Obama seems powerless."
When asked about the possibility of violence during their Days of Rage event, Verlo stated matter-of-factly, "It's hard to get people motivated if you say, 'Hey, come out and get beat up or slaughtered.'But when it comes to defending ourselves, if you want to swing back, that's everyone's free choice."
As to the locale of these demonstrations, Verlo put their views into perspective: "The youth organizers are very anti-capitalist, and Obama isn't delivering. Wall Street is where money changes hands, and they shouldn't be so influential. They're the real power center. They're in charge, and we intend to camp out until somebody responds to us."
According to Greg Eddolls of the Strong Watchman website, Days of Rage organizers are parroting the Mideast's "Arab spring" uprisings, with one exception.
He told this writer on Sept. 13, "Participants from the younger generation want something, but it's based on ignorance because they don't even know what larger forces they're dealing with."
Specifically, Eddolls explained: "Mantras like 'Government for the People' sound like a noble cause until they start talking about redistribution of wealth. Those with a socialist mindset don't know what comes with it. In an Orwellian scenario, the government provides everything, and in exchange they also control everything."
Associated with this phenomenon, Eddolls sees radical transformations taking place in our nation: "Starting a business or going out and making a living are no longer the dominant theme in America. A new generation that still believes in individualism and hard work is fading, and instead they're more accepting of a collectivist message that's hidden within global government."
The planners behind this Days of Rage event are exploiting this sentiment. Eddolls elaborated: "To destabilize our current government, major civil unrest is needed. A stated aim of the anti-capitalists is to prevent the rich from being rich. So, they want to create panic on Wall Street, resulting in, they hope, massive bank runs. People will then remove all their cash, with the financial strain creating a great deal of turmoil."
When AFP inquired as to whether this scenario is part of a plot to weaken our country, Eddolls answered, "The New World Order is now a conspiracy fact, not a theory, that's been proven right over the past 15 years."
It should be noted that two of the figures who are helping organize the U.S. Days of Rage are SEIU union leader Stephen Lerner and ACORN founder Wade Rathke. Both have direct ties to Barack Obama.
This connection to the president has deeper roots in a group known as the October 2011 Movement that contains a host of former Students for a Democratic Society members among its ranks. On Oct. 6, a "Seize DC happening" is planned where many of the above-mentioned groups intend to bring about a U.S. version of the Tahrir Square uprising in Egypt.
Of note, the Weather Underground, a violent band of 1960-1970s anarchists, formed as a splinter group from the SDS. The Weathermen were co-founded by none other than Bill Ayers. Not only did Obama launch his 1995 state senatorial career via a luncheon at Bill Ayers's Hyde Park home, it's commonly accepted in many circles that Ayers ghostwrote Obama's "autobiography."
On Aug. 18, investigative reporter Danette Clark described a previous version of this year's Sept. 17 event organized by the Weather Underground in Chicago: "The [Oct. 8] 1969 Days of Rage consisted of violent demonstrations and blowing things up. A commemorative statue of a murdered police officer in Haymarket Square was destroyed by a dynamite bomb. The blast scattered pieces of the statue onto the Kennedy Expressway and shattered nearly 100 windows. Weathermen and fellow demonstrators donning motorcycle and football helmets charged and attacked police officers [while] smashing windows in automobiles, buildings and homes."
Lerner, who serves on SEIU's International Executive Board, was President Obama's guest at the White House on four separate occasions. He is also orchestrating, behind the scenes, the Sept. 17 Occupy Wall Street rally.
Lerner's stated goals are to destroy JPMorgan Chase, collapse the stock market and destabilize the American power structure by rebuilding a new movement. On March 23, Lerner told the Washington Times: "How do we bring down the stock market? How do we bring down their bonuses? How do we interfere with their ability to be rich?"
One of Lerner's fellow organizers, Wade Rathke, founded the disgraced community advocacy group ACORN, while also acting as union president of the New Orleans branch of SEIU. Rathke referred to their coordinated Days of Rage efforts as an "anti-banking jihad."
As a past SDS member affiliated with Ayers, Rathke voiced his disgust with what he called "rats" who notified FBI agents about a left-wing plot to bomb the 2008 Republican National Convention in New Orleans. Coincidentally, Barack Obama began his career as the chief national trainer for Rathke's ACORN.
But the most unapologetically extreme member of Obama's reactionary force is Ayers, who described to Chicago magazine in Aug. 2001 the goal of 1969's Weather Underground Days of Rage: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents. That's where it's really at."
Later, he wrote joyfully of the widespread destruction: "The streets became sparkling and treacherous with the jagged remains of our rampage."
Ayers's literary flair is obvious, as his talents were later used to pen Obama's autobiography Dreams From My Father. Although mainstream media lapdogs have largely ignored their ties, Obama lives in the same elite Chicago neighborhood as Ayers and served with him on the Woods Fund. Obama later appointed Ayers head of the prestigious Annenberg Challenge.
14 CITIES MOST PRIMED FOR RIOTS
On Aug. 11, Chaz Valenza of Op-Ed News compiled a list of cities that, he felt, were powder kegs ready to erupt (as chronicled earlier this year in AFP, Detroit tops the list, suffering from 40 percent unemployment, a mere $14,000 average yearly income, 36 percent poverty and a 37 percent dropout rate, not to mention the nation's third-highest crime rate): 1.) Detroit; 2.) Miami Beach; 3.) Cleveland; 4.) Memphis; 5.) New Orleans; 6.) Buffalo; 7.) Milwaukee; 8.) St. Louis; 9.) Baltimore; 10.) Atlanta; 11.) Cincinnati; 12.) Long Beach; 13.) Newark; 14.) Philadelphia.
AFP First National Newspaper to Talk Honestly About 9-11
By Victor Thorn -
Within a week of the 9-11 attacks—at a time when questioning the government's official version of events was already considered almost seditious, AFP had already begun informing its readers that the Osama bin Laden-19 Arab hijackers story had more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese.
Considering the intense shock to our nation, these were dangerous times to oppose the neo-con led administration. In the aftermath of this catastrophe, President George W. Bush upped the ante by threatening Americans with the consequences of exhibiting any "unpatriotic" tendencies.
"You're either with us, or you're with the terrorists," he sneered in what would become his style of cowboy diplomacy.
Bush's intentions were clear: If you dare investigate these obviously suspicious crimes, we'll marginalize you and brand you an enemy of the state. Later, realizing that their house of cards could come crashing down, Bush addressed the UN with this warning: "Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories regarding the attacks of Sept. 11."
Still, in AFP's issue no. 5, dated Sept. 24, 2001, Michael Collins Piper threw down the gauntlet by reminding subscribers of direct Mossad links to the first WTC bombing, in 1993. The following week, AFP asked about Israeli foreknowledge of these horrific strikes in New York and D.C.
Subsequent issues contained articles on the WTC controlled demolitions, fake cell phone calls, the military's incomprehensible stand-down, gangs of celebrating Israelis, pools of molten steel beneath Ground Zero, Osama bin Laden's doubles, and interviews with survivor William Rodriguez and 9-11 widow Ellen Mariani.
Without doubt, no event in the past decade has had such an impact on our lives as 9-11, not to mention the tentacles that sprung from it, including the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, TSA inspections, two atrocious foreign wars, color-coded terror alerts and astronomical spending.
From day one, AFP courageously stood at the forefront of what would become known as the 9-11 truth movement. Without AFP's contributions, it's likely that another similar attack would have already been leveled against the U.S. by now.
This special edition—containing much new information—is our tribute to those who died on 9-11, their families and all those who seek the truth about Sept. 11, 2001.
Obama Betrays Palestinian Leaders
By Keith Johnson -
Any doubt that the Oval Office often acts like a subsidiary of the Israeli government was soundly laid to rest on Sept. 21 when Barack Obama addressed the UN General Assembly in New York concerning the U.S. position on Palestinian statehood.
"Peace is hard work," said Obama. "Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the United Nations. If it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now."
This part of Obama's speech was a complete reversal to one given at the same podium in 2010 when he offered this impression: "When we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that can lead to a new member of the United Nations, an independent, sovereign state of Palestine living in peace with Israel."
Though Obama sounded then as if he would be the champion of such a cause, this year Obama confirmed that he would be standing in its way. Rather than reaffirming his commitment to achieving his previously stated objective, Obama instead chose to sidle up with the sole obstacle to peace in the Middle East: Israel.
"America's commitment to Israel's security is unshakable," Obama declared to the group of delegates. "Our friendship with Israel is deep and enduring."
At no time during his 36-minute speech did Obama make any mention of the pain and suffering the Palestinians have been forced to endure as a result of 63 years of Israeli occupation. However, when it came to Israel, Obama had no shortage of sympathetic words.
He said: "Let us be honest with ourselves: Israel is surrounded by neighbors that have waged repeated wars against it. Israel's citizens have been killed by rockets fired at their houses and suicide bombs on their buses. Israel's children come of age knowing that throughout the region, other children are taught to hate them."
Shortly after Obama met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, White House national security council spokesman Ben Rhodes told a group of reporters: "We would have to oppose any action at the UN Security Council, including, if necessary, vetoing."
So why is the U.S. desperately campaigning to thwart what is obviously an international consensus? The answer is clear: U.S. politicians are ultimately beholden to no one but the state of Israel. While Republicans and Democrats may haggle over domestic issues, one thing they unilaterally agree upon is the continued prosperity and security of the Jewish state.
As a prime example, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) recently showed his solidarity with the Obama administration by introducing legislation that would cut off funding to the UN in the event that it recognized Palestine as an independent state.
"Israel is one of America's strongest allies and friends, a beacon of democracy in the Middle East," said Hatch. "Make no mistake, there will be consequences associated with efforts to undermine the security of America's friends and allies."
New Jersey's Swelling Tent City
By Victor Thorn -
Five years ago ordained minister Steven Brigham established a tent city for the homeless that is located only three-quarters of a mile from downtown Lakewood, N.J. Brigham recently sat down with AMERICAN FREE PRESS to describe how this site, which was only supposed to provide a temporary home for Americans who are down on their luck, has now grown significantly over the years.
"Today, 70 people live on seven acres of land out in the woods," said Brigham. "There is no electricity except for generators that are periodically operated. We also don't have water except for what we carry in drums that is pumped from a well. So, our tent city has a frontier-town feel to it."
Brigham knows firsthand the travails of living hand to mouth, as he resides in a converted school bus parked on the premises. Helping his fellow occupants became, quite literally, a matter of life and death.
"Before setting up this camp, one local man died from pneumonia after living on the streets, while another froze to death in his car," Brigham told AFP.
After beginning their rural lifestyle outside of Lakewood, problems soon confronted them.
"We haven't requested a penny of government money," Brigham explained. "But that hasn't stopped legislators from trying to kick us out. Last year, we gathered together some wood and built 30 shanties that people could live in rather than tents. But the township council made us tear down every one of them."
The results were devastating. Brigham continued: "Last winter we suffered through a 30-inch snowfall that dismantled every tent. Imagine being kicked out of a 12-foot-by-12-foot shanty smaller than most people's backyard shed. Then the snow came and destroyed our tents."
To keep warm during the winter months, residents place tarps over their tents and huddle inside heavy-duty sleeping bags. Needless to say, none of them is looking forward to the arctic months of December, January and February.
When asked what they do for food, the minister replied: "Every night, a Vietnam vet that lives in town visits all the area pizza parlors to gather up what they haven't sold. He then drives them out here, where we have a communal-type kitchen. Everything is shared. We also get donations from churches, or when people have parties and they have leftovers."
With many news reports now verifying that American poverty is higher than at any time since the Great Depression, the demographics of those who've found themselves in this predicament cut across all socioeconomic lines.
"We have one resident who used to make over $100,000 per year in the textile market. But then the entire industry got outsourced and he lost everything," Brigham remarked sadly.
Despite the uncertainty and lack of resources, Brigham's spirits remain high.
"We have our fair share of hardships, like no running water or electricity," he said, "but nobody complains."
Instead, his companions decorate their tents with knickknacks, rugs and family photos, while some have even built makeshift white picket fences around their lots.
"The decorations give our people a sense of pride and ownership, as if they belong to a community," he said. "One of the guys even dragged an old piano out here, so now we can play music and sing at night. Without this sense of dignity and self-worth, the people here may lose any chance they had of regaining a purpose in their lives."
'Squatters' Can Prevail if Bankers Unable to Produce Original Note
By Pat Shannan -
When legal researchers began to say around 2004 that many banks could not foreclose on a home buyer because the bankers no longer held the original notes, federal judges put a few of the people who fought their foreclosures in jail. And when an Ohio congresswoman spoke about it on the floor of the House of Representatives, she was chastised for urging her constituents to "break the law." Today, however, courts are ruling against banks, and some home owners known to this writer have been exercising "squatter's" rights with possession for three years or more without making a single payment.
After witnessing more than 27,000 bankruptcies in only one county of her Toledo district in 2008, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) began to take notice of the number of home foreclosures that followed. After seeing the evidence exposing the scheme that none of the Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae mortgage creations in those years was on the up and up, she showed her outrage with an unprecedented speech urging all Americans to ignore any foreclosure notice and stay in their homes as squatters.
Establishment television news host Bill Moyers criticized Mrs. Kaptur on public television for encouraging people to break the law, which was merely another media subterfuge. Actually, Mrs. Kaptur was asking Americans to force the banks to obey the law.
Many people with mortgages began to take Mrs. Kaptur's advice. Some, especially in Florida, have already done so.
"James B." of Tampa learned from others that defense lawyers were demanding that the courts grant an order against foreclosing banks that could not produce the original note, and that federal judges were suddenly granting it. He stopped paying his mortgage in August 2008 and is still in his home. It is now worth only about a third of the $330,000 borrowed against it in 2006. "Dewey T." of Orlando went to jail in 2005 for two years for promoting a program—called a "scheme" by federal prosecutors—that taught mortgagees how to fight with these legal tools to avoid foreclosure. The bottom line was simple: If the bank didn't have the original, signed note because it had been sold so many times nobody could find it, the bank could not legally foreclose for non-payment.
In 2008 after his release, longtime acquaintance Dewey told AFP, "The same federal judge that sentenced me to jail has now ruled 14 times in favor of the defendant who was standing on the same statutes that we were teaching."
How could this be? He says that at the time of his legal problems, these federal judges, who always have inside information, had heavy holdings in Fanny-Freddie stocks and had prejudicial reason to rule against him. But when the housing bubble collapsed in 2007 and exposure of the fraud was inevitable, judges sold their shares and began to rule fairly on the law again.
They continue to do so today, and in Florida, where property values have now nosedived to as little as one seventh of the mortgaged value five or more years ago, Americans are encouraged to not acquiesce to bankers' demands, but instead put up a legal fight. It appears that now they can win, and the first step is a demand to "produce the note."
A Hare-Raising Tale: Couple Fined $4M
By Dave Gahary -
For almost two years, federal officials have been harassing a family in Nixa, Mo. for selling too many pet rabbits in one year. Their story is a prime example of federal government overreach and meddling that has turned into a nightmare for John and Judy Dollarhite.
On Sept. 14, AFP conducted an exclusive 90-minute interview with the Dollarhites, who explained every twist and turn of this cautionary tale.
"We wanted to teach our teenage son some responsibility, where food came from, those types of life's lessons," explained Mrs. Dollarhite. She said she originally contacted the USDA to see if the family needed licensing to sell rabbit meat. They didn't.
"We found out pretty quickly that you couldn't make money selling rabbit meat," said Mrs. Dollarhite. So, they turned their attention to selling the rabbits as pets after discovering strong demand for these animals. This is where their problems began.
"Our error in judgment," said Mrs. Dollarhite, "was assuming that if you didn't need a license to sell meat for human consumption, why would you need a license to sell pet rabbits that sat on your lap?"
In November 2009 they got a knock on their door from a USDA official with no badge or ID. Then, a rude and aggressive Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) inspector visited them in January 2010.
Not hearing back from these inspectors after eight weeks, Dollarhite said he called the USDA's Washington, D.C. office and was told, "We're going to make an example of you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law." Dollarhite asked what that meant, and was eventually told, "You'll have to wait for my report." The official then hung up on him.
Bartering away their rabbitry on advice from their attorney, the couple heard nothing until they got a certified letter from USDA in April 2011. The Dollarhites told AFP, "The USDA's letter stated that, based on their investigation, we had sold 619 rabbits, and the fine for that was $3.9 million. But in good faith, they would give us a settlement of $90,643 that we could pay with our credit card. They added that we had until the end of May to do so."
"In our best year," explained Judy, "We sold $4,600 in gross sales." The outrageousness of their situation is apparent. With less than $5,000 in annual sales derived from a pet project for their teenage son, the federal government is now requesting nearly $100,000 in penalties.
AFP asked where the fine stood right now. "We're not paying it," said Mrs. Dollarhite. "I don't know where they stand, but we're not paying it." Her husband added: "I'm not paying a dollar. They had their chance. I don't believe that we are within their jurisdiction, because the state of Missouri does not require a license."
Nato's real purpose: "To keep the Germans down"
A view I heard express in Russia a couple of years ago was that NATO is run by about 1500 families, mainly Jewish in origin. The fact that the former communist countries of eastern Europe that wished to join NATO all have to enshrine in their legal system Holocaust denial laws, speaks for itself. In January 1999 Poland enacted such laws, and in April it joined NATO, by June the first academic, from Opolen University, was before the courts: Dr Dariusz Ratajczak. The court's sentence destroyed his career.
Germany and the Purpose of NATO
By GUILLERMO COLETTI
I have often considered writing about the real purpose of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, as I see it. However, lack of means to substantiate a number of my suspicions was a major reason of discouragement.
Now I have at my disposal something that can help me break the ice: an American General speaks openly, on national television, on the real reason for the existence of NATO. What he has to say is quite interesting for the uninitiated as well as for the irreverent and the perennial skeptic. I will use this opportunity to explain some of my initial ideas on this matter.
Adolf Hitler, simultaneously with Mussolini, and other European leaders, was involved in an extraordinary effort to eradicate the threat of Bolshevik tyranny from Europe. The stability of the governments they led was threatened via the USA as much, or perhaps more, than any danger that could have originated in Moscow.
When Hitler's defense of Europe was forced into the military alternative, the United States made an alliance with Stalin. That to me was an indication that America was becoming friendlier to Communism than to the traditional values of Western Europe. We know that American intervention resulted in a greater and stronger Soviet Russia. The Communists have indeed a debt ofgratitude to America for the expansion of Bolshevism.
But when the Second World War was over, America "agitated" the anti-Communist cause and formed NATO! Why NATO? It all sounded very phony to me, because if America had truly stood against Bolshevism it should have joined Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco, instead of Josef Stalin. America, of course, has never admitted to have fought on the wrong side.
I can't help but asking myself when was NATO a real problem for the solidity of Soviet Communism? Certainly not when Russian tanks and the Red Army occupied the streets of Prague, or Budapest. The anti-Communism of the American Establishment has always been as serious as an Abbot-and-Costello movie.
However, America's true concern was what Germany represented and what to this day survives in the German. Elie Wiesel expressed similar sentiments, when he advocated that every Jew must have some room in his heart for hatred against the Germans. The great difference between Wiesel, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and "Ike" Eisenhower is that Wiesel has expressed his emotions with more sincerity. The real hazard to the American Way, the America of the Gay Pride Parades and Martin Luther King Day, was not Bolshevism, but the Traditional Western values that Germany had tried to maintain at the expense of a multitude of sacrifices.
On April 24, 1999, NBC aired John McLaughlin's "One on One." The show had the participation of two guests: Lieutenant General William Odom and Professor Harvey Sapolsky. We are going to review same of the remarks made by General Odom.
General William Odom was introduced as a graduate from West Point, who obtained his PhD at Columbia. He served in President Carter's National Security Council and during President Reagan's administration in the Office of the Army Chief of Staff for Intelligence and for the director of Reagan's National Security Agency. He is currently director of International Security Studies at the Hudson Institute and professor of Public Policy and Organization in the Department of Political Science at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he is also the Director of the Security Program. Gen. Odom authored six books, the latest of which is The Collapse of Soviet Military.
What I have always suspected as the real purpose of NATO was disclosed, much to my surprise, right at the beginning of the show by Gen. Odom: "(NATO) was created not as most people think to defend against the Soviet military threat. The French didn't even mention the Soviet Union in the debate for it. They wanted NATO to deal with the German question. The British wanted NATO to keep the U.S. in Europe."
Gen. Odom added, still remarkably candid, that "the expansion of NATO is for the same reason; the German question versus Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary is put to bed if there is a NATO roof over it."
The type of policy advocated by this American General is strikingly similar to the policies the Germans were accused of implementing during the Third Reich era, in the Nuremberg Trials. Here are two more passages of this conversation between McLaughlin and Gen. Odom:
Mr. McLaughlin: Are we supposed to run Europe?
Gen. Odom: It pays. Yes.
Mr. McLaughlin: Why does it pay?
Gen. Odom: You are richer today because of it. We've been in Korea and Japan and Germany forever, and It's paid ... If you look back and see what's happened over the years, we've gotten richer and richer and richer.
And then, Mr. McLaughlin: Can the United States defend its interests in Europe without NATO?
Gen. Odom: No.
One of Odom's comments brings to public attention a second player in the game, further substantiating the Germanophobic character of NATO: "In 1994, the British foreign secretary said it would be better to have the Russians on the Adriatic than the Germans."
I hope that this brief article will bring some light to those who still don't understand why Dresden was destroyed and why millions of Germans were exterminated in American and Russian concentration camps at the end of the war.
One of the best indications of the correctness of the above contention is the simple fact that while the U.S. military is scrambling to maintain its troop strength in Iraq, it is not even discussing the redeployment of forces from Germany. After all, they are there - just as in Iraq - for the purpose of OCCUPATION!
