January 1, 2010: Jeff Gates / Veterans Today – December 30, 2010
The phrase “enemy within” brings to mind the image of a shadowy spy stealing military secrets. That was the case for Israeli master spy Jonathan Pollard jailed for 1980s espionage that compromised U.S. Cold War strategy.
That phrase also describes those involved in a form of psy-ops that is not easily detected because it operates so brazenly. For instance, the well-timed release of diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks displaced reports of Israeli obstinacy in peace talks with reports of a need for war with Iran.
That operation relied on editors at four major newspapers chosen by WikiLeaks to manage the releases. Despite the delight at their impact voiced by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, mainstream media failed to mention the possibility of undisclosed bias by those who chose what to release and when.
The bias of The New York Times is well known. Less clear is the role of Ian Katz, Deputy Editor at The Guardian (London) and Executive Editor Sylvie Kauffman at Le Monde in Paris. The geopolitical success of the WikiLeaks operation suggests an enemy within.
Israeli duplicity often operates through what U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates describes as “the people in between.” When waging unconventional warfare, those people are the most dangerous combatants, particularly those operatives in mainstream media.
The People in Between
For systems of governance reliant on informed consent, nothing could be more perilous. The “people in between” routinely target media—freedom’s greatest vulnerability—as a means for displacing facts with what a targeted populace can be deceived to believe.
How old is this duplicity? How long have false beliefs been used to manipulate behavior? Modern technology—particularly media—enables deception on a global scale. Between the American populace and the facts they require to protect their freedom—that’s where this enemy within imbeds its operatives.
The false intelligence claiming Iraqi WMD was a people-in-between operation. Judith Miller at The New York Times fed us a steady diet of front-page news that we now know was fixed around Israeli goals promoted by Ahmad Chalabi, a London-based Iraqi expatriate who, like Israel, sought regime change in Iraq.
Pentagon insider Richard Perle developed Chalabi over two decades. A Jewish Zionist, Perle has long been a strategically well-placed “person in between.” Miller left The Times and joined Fox News and then Newsmax.
Yet the impact of complicit media pales in comparison to the enemy within that brought the U.S. economy to its knees and undermined national security at its financial core.
The most devastating in this chronicle of enemies is the most difficult to see. As with other “in between” operations, this too succeeds by displacing facts with false beliefs. Only in this case, those beliefs were imbedded in education and over decades worked their way into law.
Known as the “Washington Consensus,” this widely shared perspective shapes economic policy worldwide. At the heart of this generally accepted truth is found the belief that money should be accountable only to itself.
In this mindset, financial freedom is an article of faith. Instead of the civil rights refrain, “Let my people go,” its proponents insist: “Let my money go.” Allow money the freedom to work its will worldwide and everything will work out fine.
That shared belief works “in between” in the same way that Jonathan Pollard undermined national security, WikiLeaks shifted attention to Iran and Judith Miller induced us to war in Iraq. Only in this case a false belief has been so thoroughly internalized that it’s difficult to see because this shared mindset has become that with which we who have been educated do our seeing.
A Global Sanhedrin
The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are the primary apostles of this consensus faith. The World Trade Organization (WTO) now seeks to take this belief to a global scale by enforcing unrestricted free trade not only in goods and services, but also financial capital.
The WTO operates like a global Sanhedrin akin to a Jewish high council accountable only to itself. What’s now emerging as a global enemy within is a finance-guided form of transnational governance marketed as free trade but accountable only to itself.
That ‘self’ traces its origins to an internalized mindset in which financial freedom serves, by consensus, as a proxy for personal freedom. That mindset was decades in the making.
This modern-day Mindset Warfare is being waged by an enemy that is truly within. Fast-globalizing financial forces now induce us to freely embrace the very forces that undermine our freedom.
By waging war on us from the inside out, the originators of this money-myopic mindset dismantled the U.S. economy, enabled vast financial pillaging and induced us to fiscal ruin.
Those wielding this weaponry operate from our internal shadows as the Zionist entity within.

Premise: The following informed-opinion essay puts forth the premise that WW I, WW II and the Holocaust can be understood if you realize that 70 million people died in order for the Jews to settle in Palestine in 1948. Events That Changed the World in the 20th Century, edited by Frank W. Thackeray and John E. Findling is a unique resource that offers detailed descriptions and expert analysis of the 20th Century’s most important events; however, the creation of the State of Israel is not among the Events That Changed the World in the 20th Century. 
Without a modern State of Israel perspective, historians, scholars and researchers have spent half of the 20th Century writing hundreds of thousands of manuscripts, books, theses, dissertations, essays and journal submissions attempting to resolve the anomalies and inconsistencies of the events from 1897-1948.
The year 2009 was the first time anyone in history realized the significance of Theodore Herzl’s remarks at the first Zionist conference in 1897. Herzl predicted UN Resolution GA 181, would be adopted in 1947, creating the State of Israel. 
The Modern State of Israel: Providence, Miracle, or What Really Happened, by Robert Singer was given to Canada Free Press (CFP) as an Exclusive in March of 2009. CFP is the conservative Canadian website (Alexa Traffic Rank: 20,536), owned and operated by Judi McLeod.
The website disappeared each time the webmaster attempted to post the article. McLeod writes: “Naturally, I am fearful of posting anything that would make CFP disappear. Can you shed any light on this possibility? Thanks, Judi, 3-17-09” [More at Websites Under Attack]
The Modern State of Israel: Providence, Miracle, or What Really Happened was reviewed by Mark Weber, the director of The Institute for Historical Review (www.ihr.org) in May of 2010.
The Institute for Historical Review (IHR) continues the tradition of historical revisionism pioneered by distinguished historians such as Harry Elmer Barnes, A.J.P. Taylor, Charles Tansill, Paul Rassinier and William H. Chamberlin. It strives, in the words of Barnes, to “bring history into accord with the facts.”
After the review, Mark wanted to know what Robert Singer had read (The Bible, The Incredible Scofield and his Book, The Cassandra Prophesy) that allowed him to be the first one in history to connect The Scofield Bible, World Wars I, II and the Holocaust, to the Jews arriving in Palestine not in 1946 or 1950, but in 1948, Aka The Key to the Secret of the Universe. [More at, Speaking Engagement at The Institute for Historical Review**Cancelled**]
If the creation of the modern State of Israel is considered one of the most important events in the 20th century, then the following insights “bring history into accord with the facts” and resolve every anomalies and inconsistencies of the events from 1897-1948:
- World War I is no longer “a pointless tragedy,” if the goal was to obtain the Balfour Declaration.
- Adolph Hitler, a gay prostitute and a street cleaner, who made every mistake possible in his failed attempt to take over the world, can finally be understood.
- The influence of the con artist Cyrus Scofield and the Scofield Reference Bible, as the most important instrument for spreading the message of Christian Zionism: that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.
- The Beer Hall Putsch, The Munich Agreement and Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis are anomalies that can finally be reconciled. Part 3: Adolph Hitler: Providence, Miracle, or What Really Happened?
[End of Premise, see Endnote 2]
The Nazi & Jewish Affair to Remember (November 2010)
Why did the CIA create a ‘safe haven’ for Nazis in the US after the War? 
The Long-hidden report: CIA created ‘safe haven’ for Nazis in the US, released November 13, 2010, may be the most concrete account yet of the role that prominent members of Germany’s Nazi Party played in the early, formative years of the CIA, following World War II. The report alleges the CIA created a “safe haven” for Nazis believed to be of use to the US’ Cold War efforts. 
Notice the words alleges and believed to be of use to the US’ Cold War efforts.
The 600-page report (not identified until December 10), which the Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years, confirms what historians refer to as “a pathetic chapter” in our nation’s history. The “experts” our intelligence people recruited were just a bunch of criminals and losers that never provided any useful intelligence about the Soviet Union.”
Three weeks later (December 10), APNewsBreak identifies the report as Hitler’s Shadow: Nazi War Criminals, U.S. Intelligence, and the Cold War, and goes into the details on the Nazi Gestapo, and the Ukrainian fascist, Mykola Lebed. Lebed led a paramilitary organization that pursued ethnic cleansing policies during the war.
The December 10 article, unlike the one on November 13, now defends the US’ intelligence officials decision to provide a safe haven for Nazi criminals. The CIA, according to the report, “shielded Lebed by denying any connection with the Nazis and by arguing that he was a Ukrainian freedom fighter. The CIA concluded that Lebed’s activities on behalf of American intelligence were of such ‘inestimable value’ that the agency could ill afford to lose him as an asset.”
CIA spokesman George Little, concerned about the department’s image, issued this statement:
“The CIA at no time had a policy or a program to protect Nazi war criminals, or to help them escape justice for their actions during the war. The agency has cooperated for decades with the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations.”
And while the November 13 report concluded the CIA was inept or just stupid because they didn’t know Lieutenant Richard Hallock had a breakthrough in 1943 when he deciphered the codes of the Red Army intelligence (The Venona Project), the December 10 article goes on to defend the CIA’s policies:
“The Army’s willingness to use Gestapo officials against Communists was more substantial or greater than what we had known…” and in an attempt to disrupt the USSR, through penetrations in Ukraine, the agency turned to Nazi-affiliated nationalists, including “Tireless in his efforts on behalf of Ukrainian nationalism, Lebed remained one of the agency’s oldest contacts until his death in 1998.”
The Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act resulted in more than 8 million documents being declassified, but the Office of Special Investigations (OSI) admits, “Yet even more records are still hidden.”
In 2007, the OSI had waived more than 23,000 pages, but as of this date is keeping secret over 18,000 pages, allegedly to protect the “ongoing investigations (going on for decades) and prosecutions.” [Let’s see, the war ended 66 years ago, anyone who is being investigated is either deceased or over 85 years of age. Why would they need to keep secret almost half the records?]
Mysteriously, the next day (12/11), the December 10 article is rewritten by Randy Herschaft and titled Report details ties between US and ex-Nazis, but this version fails to mention the OSI is keeping secret over 18,000 pages “to protect ongoing investigations and prosecutions” of war criminals who are on their death bed.
The 12/11 report expands on the postwar efforts by U.S. intelligence officials efforts (that George Little denies) to throw the Nazi hunters off the trail:
“You can make the argument the CIA never should have gone near this guy (Lebed) because of his past,” said Norman J.W. Goda of the University of Florida, who wrote the report with Richard Breitman of American University in Washington. But Goda said the CIA found the relationship to be so valuable for getting information into and out of the Soviet Union that “the relationship couldn’t be sacrificed.” “This was somebody that was very, very useful and remained so for the entire Cold War,” he added.
Another part of the report addresses the story of Otto Von Bolschwing, an associate of Adolf Eichmann, who was instrumental in drawing up plans for ridding Germany of the Jews. 
Below is an excerpt by Christopher Simpson about Otto Von Bolschwing from Simpson’s Blowback America’s recruitment of Nazis, and its disastrous effect on our domestic and foreign policy, Page 252:
“The story of U.S. intelligence relations with criminals such as Brunner is of necessity fragmentary, for both the CIA and Brunner himself have taken extensive measures to keep such affairs hidden. It is clear, however, that Brunner was not an exception to the rule who managed to ingratiate himself with the Americans through guile or through an oversight. There is, in fact, at least one other known case of U.S. recruitment: Baron Otto von Bolschwing, an SS veteran of Adolf Eichmann’s “Jewish Affairs” office, the elite committee that served as the central administrative apparatus of the Nazis’ campaign to exterminate the Jews.”
Notice he worked in Eichmann’s elite “Jewish Affairs” office, not in the Third Reich’s elite “Soviet Affairs” office.
“Von Bolschwing, deeply involved in intelligence work, and in the persecution of innocent people for most of his adult life, was a supreme opportunist who succeeded in traversing the whole evolution of U.S. policy toward Nazi criminals.
He profited during the war from the Nazi confiscation of Jewish property, then later from the defeat of Nazi Germany itself. Von Bolschwing enlisted as a CIC informer for the Americans in the spring of 1945.
Von Bolschwing joined the Nazi party at the age of twenty-three, and in the years leading up to 1939, he was a leading Nazi intelligence agent in the Middle East, where he worked undercover as an importer in Jerusalem.
One of his first brushes with Nazi espionage work, according to captured SS records, was a role in creating a covert agreement between the Nazis and Fieval Polkes, a commander of the militant Zionist organization Haganah, whom Von Bolschwing had met through business associates in the Mideast. [Interesting]
Under the arrangement the Haganah was permitted to run recruiting and training camps for Jewish youth inside Germany. These young people, as well as certain other Jews driven out of Germany by the Nazis, were encouraged to emigrate to Palestine. Polkes and the Haganah, in return, agreed to provide the SS with intelligence about British affairs in Palestine.
Captured German records claim that Polkes believed the increasingly brutal Nazi persecution of the Jews could be turned to Zionist advantage–at least temporarily–by compelling Jewish immigration to Palestine, and that the Haganah commander’s sole source of income, moreover, was secret funds from the SS.” [End of Excerpt]
Consider another reason the CIA created a “safe haven” for Nazis.
Von Bolschwing, it is reasonable to assume, had access to the secret memorandum written on June 21, 1933, from the German Zionist Federation to the Nazis, which stated in part: “All German Jewish organizations, it was declared, should be dominated by the Zionist spirit.” In 1941, the “Stern Gang,” among them Yitzhak Shamir, later Prime Minister of Israel, presented the Nazis with the fundamental Features of the Proposal of the National Military Organization (NMO) in Palestine:
The NMO, which is well-acquainted with the goodwill of the German Reich government and its authorities towards Zionism activity … is of the opinion that: the NMO in Palestine … offers to actively take part in the war on Germany’s side. The Iron Wall, London 1984, pp.195-197, The Wall Street Journal December 2, 1976
“Concentration” weren’t the only camps set up by Hitler and the Gestapo. During the 1930s, in cooperation with the German authorities, Zionist groups organized a network of some 40 camps where prospective settlers were trained for their new lives in Palestine. The Transfer Agreement between Hitler’s Germany and international Zionism, implemented in 1933 and abandoned at the beginning of WWII, allowed German Jews to emigrate to Palestine. 
As an Eichmann insider in the “Jewish Affairs” office, Von Bolschwing could have had access to other secret memoranda that would explain why the jew-hating Nazis were making deals with a commander of the militant Zionist organization Haganah that allowed Jews to leave for Palestine instead of being gassed in a concentration camp.
Providing a “safe haven” for Von Bolschwing and Lebed was a small price to pay to prevent the insiders at the “Jewish Affairs” office from telling the world the Final Solution wasn’t about killing Jews but was The Key to the Secret of the Universe.

 Some of the most important events in the twentieth century took years to accomplish, while others took only minutes. Twentieth century history is made up of both the large and the small events that shaped it, however Jennifer Rosenberg’s 20th Century History Guide does not include the creation of the State of Israel.
Designed for students, “Events That Changed the World in the Twentieth Century”, Edited by Frank W. Thackeray and John E. Findling is a unique resource that offers detailed descriptions and expert analysis of the 20th century’s most important events: World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Rise of Fascism, the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, the Chinese Revolution, the end of Colonialism and the Rise of the Third World, European unification, and the collapse of the Soviet union. The creation of the State of Israel is not listed as an Events That Changed the World in the Twentieth Century.
In response to an inquiry from a Vassar College student publication, B.W. Van Norden wrote his opinion of “The Ten Most Important People of the 20th Century.”
His criteria for inclusion were how many people were influenced, and to how great an extent, by the event(s) associated with this person and would the event(s) associated with this person not have occurred, or would they have happened in a significantly different way, had this person not existed? Adolph Hitler: WWII and the Holocaust are central events of this century. B.W does not consider the creation of the State of Israel a central event of this century.

 There are three prequels to this article. The first was released July 14, 2010, J. D. Salinger – With Love and Squalor, For Esmé, the second December 11, The CIA created ‘safe haven’ for Nazis and Jews and the third December 17, Baron Otto Von Bolschwing, SS Veteran of Eichmann’s “Jewish Affairs”.
As they say, when you are “over the target,” you receive the flak. Websites that expressly said it was being published, inexplicably changed their mind because subsequently it “disappeared” not unlike the story of The Modern State of Israel: Providence, Miracle, or What Really Happened in 2010 Lew Rockwell and Judi McLeod (Canada Free Press)
July 25, 2010, Katherine Smith received the following email from Llewellyn Harrison Rockwell, Jr. (http://www.lewrockwell.com): Dear “Ms. Smith”, thanks so much; I had seen the Salinger piece (an informed opinion piece that connects WW1, WW2, Adolph Hitler and the Holocaust to The Modern State of Israel and The Key to the Secret of the Universe), liked it but was worried he could not get enough traffic for it, “let me rethink.

Subject: Submission: Updated Salinger article that Lew liked – The CIA created ‘safe haven’ for Nazis and Jews
“Lew, Have you seen the latest version of the Salinger article? The CIA created ‘safe haven’ for Nazis and Jews.”
It’s obviously ‘over the target,’ otherwise websites would not be removing it; after they published and/or said they wanted to publish the piece.
Sort of like you when you removed http://www.lewrockwell.com/spl2/1961-speech-that-got-jfk-killed.html after it was on your site for 30 days. Recall our last conversation where you said you would get back to me and let me know whatreallyhappened.
I would be very interested in knowing why you decided not to post the original Salinger article and/or why you are not posting the new one (now much improved thanks to the NY Times).
Your original emails are below and at 2010 Lew Rockwell and Judi McLeod (Canada Free Press). If I don’t hear from you I will assume it’s ok for me to publish an article about our email exchange and your mysterious change of position. This will be hard for the public to grasp since you were brave enough to publish Thomas DiLorenzo on Lincoln, our beloved president that was a mass murderer.

 November 13: A report the Justice Department has been trying to hide for the past four years offers the most detailed account yet of the CIA’s efforts to protect known Nazi war criminals in the United States. Eric Lichtblau, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/14/us/14nazis.html?_r=1
 Doctor Kubovy, from the Tel Aviv “Documentation Center”, admitted in 1960 “There is no document signed by Hitler, Himmler or Heydrich which speaks of exterminating the Jews… and in 1981, Walter Laqueur, author of The terrible secret, admitted: “Until now, we have never found Hitler’s order to destroy the European Jewish community, and in all probability the order was never given.” There is no order because Hitler used the term Entfernung of the Jews – removal or expulsion.
 When Lenni Brenner’s, 51 Documents: Zionism Collaboration with the Nazis was published the Pro-Zionist British Jewish central organization wanted Amazon to issue a warning to their customers, “We have urged Amazon to acknowledge on the site that this book is of a dangerous and controversial nature.”
The Nazi era is the most discussed period in history, yet most Jews and others are unaware of the interaction between Zionism, Hitler and Mussolini.
What happened to the Jews is constantly utilized in Zionist propaganda as justification for the creation of the Israeli state, the silver lining around the dark cloud of desolation.

January 1, 2011: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts / Rense.com – December 31, 2010
2011 is upon us! – SJH
The year 2011 will bring Americans a larger and more intrusive police state, more unemployment and home foreclosures, no economic recovery, more disregard by the U.S. government of U.S. law, international law, the Constitution, and truth, more suspicion and distrust from allies, more hostility from the rest of the world, and new heights of media sycophancy.
2011 is shaping up as the terminal year for American democracy. The Republican Party has degenerated into a party of Brownshirts, and voter frustrations with the worsening economic crisis and military occupations gone awry are likely to bring Republicans to power in 2012. With them would come their doctrines of executive primacy over Congress, the judiciary, law, and the Constitution and America’s rightful hegemony over the world.
If not already obvious, 2010 has made clear that the U.S. government does not care a whit for the opinions of citizens. The TSA is unequivocal that it will reach no accommodation with Americans other than the violations of their persons that it imposes by its unaccountable power. As for public opposition to war, the Associated Press reported on December 16 that “Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the U.S. can’t let public opinion sway its commitment to Afghanistan.” Gates stated bluntly what has been known for some time: the idea is passe that government in a democracy serves the will of the people. If this quaint notion is still found in civics books, it will soon be edited out.
In Gag Rule, a masterful account of the suppression of dissent and the stifling of democracy, Lewis H. Lapham writes that candor is a necessary virtue if democracies are to survive their follies and crimes. But where in America today can candor be found? Certainly not in the councils of government. Attorney General John Ashcroft complained of candor-mongers to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Americans who insist on speaking their minds, Ashcroft declared, “scare people with phantoms of lost liberty” … “aid terrorists” … “diminish our resolve,” and “give ammunition to America’s enemies.”
As the Department of Justice (sic) sees it, when the ACLU defends habeas corpus it is defending the ability of terrorists to blow up Americans, and when the ACLU defends the First Amendment it is defending exposures of the lies and deceptions that are the necessary scaffolding for the government’s pretense that it is doing God’s will while Satan speaks through the voices of dissent.
Neither is candor a trait in which the American media finds comfort. The neoconservative press functions as a propaganda ministry for the hegemonic American empire, and the “liberal” New York Times serves the same master. It was the New York Times that gave credence to the Bush regime’s lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and it was the New York Times that guaranteed Bush’s re-election by spiking the story that Bush was committing felonies by spying on Americans without obtaining warrants. Conservatives rant about the “liberal media” as if it were a vast subversive force, but they owe their beloved wars and cover-ups of the Bush regime’s crimes to the New York Times.
With truth the declared enemy of the fantasy world in which the government, media, and public reside, the nation has turned on whistleblowers. Bradley Manning, who allegedly provided the media with the video made by U.S. troops of their wanton, fun-filled slaughter of newsmen and civilians, has been abused in solitary confinement for six months. Murdering civilians is a war crime, and as General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the National Press Club on February 17, 2006, “It is the absolute responsibility of everybody in uniform to disobey an order that is either illegal or immoral” and to make such orders known. If Manning is the source of the leak, he has been wrongfully imprisoned for meeting his military responsibility. The media have yet to make the point that the person who reported the crime, not the persons who committed it, is the one who has been imprisoned, and without a trial.
The lawlessness of the U.S. government, which has been creeping up on us for decades, broke into a full gallop in the years of the Bush/Cheney/Obama regimes. Today the government operates above the law, yet maintains that it is a democracy bringing the same to Muslims by force of arms, only briefly being sidetracked by sponsoring a military coup against democracy in Honduras and attempting to overthrow the democratic government in Venezuela.
As 2011 dawns, public discourse in America has the country primed for a fascist dictatorship.The situation will be worse by 2012. The most uncomfortable truth that emerges from the WikiLeaks saga is that American public discourse consists of cries for revenge against those who tell us truths. The vicious mendacity of the U.S. government knows no restraint. Whether or not international law can save Julian Assange from the clutches of the Americans or death by a government black ops unit, both executive and legislative branches are working assiduously to establish the National Security State as the highest value and truth as its greatest enemy… America’s future is the world of Winston Smith.
“Dissent is what rescues democracy from a quiet death behind closed doors.” – Lewis H. Lapham
Collateral Murder – Wikileaks – Iraq
The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Dr. Roberts is quite correct in all his predictions and assessments, save one: Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, which is a joint CIA-Mossad psy-op to hide Zionist Israel’s crimes and to throw the door wide open for internet regulation in order to stifle the last vestiges of freedom and truth…
As more and more Americans are economically devastated while their Constitutional rights are being blatantly violated and eviscerated, the will to resist conversely wanes from their priorities as they struggle to survive…
There comes a time when the line must be drawn in the sand, if not for you… for our children! 2011 will prove to be a defining moment in the history of America and reveal the true character of its people! – SJH
