The NSA Is Ideologically and Deceptively Talmudic (Part II)

…by Jonas E. Alexis

One of the many essential doctrines of the Talmud is that Jews are allowed to cheat and deceive the goyim for the purpose of advancing Jewish interest. According to Baba Kamma 11a, “Jews may use lies to circumvent a Gentile.”

This is permitted because Gentiles, according to the Talmud, are “outside the protection of the law and God has ‘exposed their money to Israel.’”[1] Let me illustrate this point from experience.

In 2011, freelance Jewish writer Alan Caruba quoted the Mishnah saying thatWhoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed the entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved the entire world” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5).[2]

This particular verse is also cited in one of the most popular Holocaust films of all time, Schindler’s List. However, the quotation was misleading and left a key aspect which actually changes the whole the issue altogether.

As Michael Hoffman quickly discovered, Caruba used that quotation “to circumvent a Gentile.” The actual quotation reads:

“Therefore man was created alone, to teach you that whoever destroys a single Israelite soul is deemed by Scripture as if he had destroyed a whole world. And whoever saves an Israelite soul is deemed by Scripture as if he had saved a whole world” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5).

Other versions used the words a little different, but the context is always clear: the verse is talking about the people of Israel, not the entire human race.

“Therefore man was created singly, to teach you that whoever destroys a single life from Israel is considered by Scripture as if he had destroyed an entire world; and that whoever preserves a single life from Israel is considered by Scripture as if he had preserved an entire world.”[3]

To make things fair and honest, I contacted Caruba and pointed out to him that he misquoted the verse in his article—perhaps ignorantly. He quickly responded by saying that “my attribution to the Mishnah is essentially correct.”

SchindlersListI then responded by saying that the attribution cannot be correct if “Israel” is removed. Caruba wrote back saying,

“Writing a commentary is not the same as a theological exegesis, nor does it require a complete, word for word, presentation of a particular citation. I am not a theologian. I am, in fact, a polemicist whose writings are widely read and generally well received.

“To focus on a single element of the Mishna and ignore the total theme of the commentary is to miss its point entirely. It is not an act of disrespect for the Mishna. Indeed, it is quite the opposite. Tell me the last time you read any popular commentator who made reference to it?”

I responded to him declaring that I am not asking for a “word for word” citation. Moreover, a person does one need to be a theologian to cite a verse properly and in context.

A citation, as all writers know, does not have to be word for word, but it has to be in context and must not leave out key issues that change the original purpose of the author. To leave out or put in the word “Israelite” or “Israel” into the verse will have a radical meaning—one that Caruba did not want to face.

I then moved on to ask him whether he was doing this intentionally or whether he was ignorant of the context, for we are all ignorant to a certain extent. The response was quite interesting:

“I am growing tired of this discussion. No harm was done in the citation to which you object. Indeed, it highlighted the Jewish regard for a single life as representing all humanity. I have tried to respond to your concerns, but at this point I will cease doing so because you have been given a full answer. Whether you accept it or not is your decision.”

In short, lies and deceptions for advancing Israel’s expansion and Jewish interests are congruent with Talmudic hermeneutic.

As we shall see in the future when we examine capitalism and usury, this has been a consistent problem over the centuries, most particularly when Jews in Spain began to apply Talmudic doctrines in their dealings with Gentiles.

Heinrich Graetz

Heinrich Graetz

Late Jewish historiographer Heinrich Graetz, who hated Christianity with a passion, declared that in the fourteenth century,

“Some wealthy Jews, probably relying upon favorable position of their friends at court, carried on money transactions in an unscrupulous manner. They extorted a high rate of interest, and mercilessly persecuted their dilatory Christian debtors. The king himself encouraged the usury of the Jews and Moors, because he gained advantage therefrom.

“The complaints of the people against the Jewish and Mahometan usurers grew very numerous. The cortes of Madrid, Valladolid and other cities made this point the subject of petitions presented to the king, demanding the abolition of these abuses, and the king was compelled to yield to their entreaty…

“[Therefore] the minds of the people [became] embittered against the Jews. The cortes of Madrid thereupon called for several restrictive laws against the Jews, such as…that Jewish ministers of finance…should not be appointed.”[4]

Graetz himself admitted that by plunging themselves into the study of the Talmud, the Jewish population began to seduce the Gentiles and even some decent Jews using sophisticated deceptions and crafty hoaxes, which sent the peasants in particular in abject servitude.

Moreover, Talmudic studies, Graetz continues, darkened and poisoned the minds of the apologists:

A love of twisting, distorting, ingenious quibbling, and a foregone antipathy to what did not lie within their field of vision, constituted the character of the Polish Jews. Pride in their knowledge of the Talmud and a spirit of dogmatism attached even to the best rabbis, and undermined their moral sense…

“Integrity and right-mindedness they had lost as completely as simplicity and the sense of truth. The vulgar acquired the quibbling method of the schools, and employed it to outwit the less cunning.

“They found pleasure and a sort of triumphant delight in deception and cheating against members of their own race; cunning could not well be employed, because they were sharp-witted; but the non-Jewish world with which they came into contact experienced to its disadavantage the superiority of the Talmudical spirit of the Polish Jews.”[5]

This energized an anti-Jewish spirit among the Poles, for they knew that they were being cheated. This quickly led to violence among the Gentiles, who in 1638 “slew 200 Jews, and destroyed several synagogues.”

Ten years later, Jews clung to the book of Zohar for Messianic revolution. The book of Zohar came into existence around the thirteenth century and its theological conclusion is quite congruent with what the Talmud had already propounded.[6]

Graetz declared that the Zohar “was held by Jews as a heavenly revelation…”[7]  It was also “the Bible of the Kabbalists…”[8]

Once again whenever the Jews began to apply the teachings of the Zohar in their dealings with Gentiles, troubles ensued, and this again caused “bloody retribution,” during which both innocent and guilty Jews were slain.[9]

Within the next three years, anti-Jewish resistance led again to a bloody war that took the lives of thousands of Jews, and caused many others to move to places like the Netherlands, Bohemia, Austria, Italy, and Hungary. Wherever they went, however, they took the study of the Talmud with them, bearing the same deceptive attitudes towards Gentiles:

“Far from giving up their own method in a foreign country, they demanded that all the world should be regulated by them, and they gained their point.”[10]

The link between the Talmud and the NSA

nsa1Deception again did not die out in Spain in the early centuries. The NSA is a classic example of how Israeli deceptions have been used to seduce much of the Western world.

The Guardian has recently reported that lying under oath has been an essential part of the NSA. The New York Times, of course, did not want the news to spread like wildfire obviously for political reasons and obviously that would help people recognize that Israel is actually the elephant in the room.[11]

The Guardian reports:

First, the lying. The National Intelligence University, based in Washington, DC, offers a certificate program called the denial and deception advanced studies program.

“That’s not a farcical sci-fi dystopia; it’s a real program about countering denial and deception by other countries. The repeated misrepresentations suggest that the intelligence establishment has come to see its civilian bosses as adversaries to be managed through denial and deception.

“We learned months ago that the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied under oath to Congress. Now, we know that General Keith Alexander filed a ‘declaration’ (which is like testifying in writing), asserting an interpretation of violations that the court said ‘strains credulity.’

“The newly-disclosed 2009 opinion includes a whole section entitled ‘Misrepresentations to the Court,’ which begins with the sentence.’

“The government has compounded its noncompliance with the court’s orders by repeatedly submitting inaccurate descriptions of the alert list process to the FISC.

“General Alexander’s claim that the NSA’s vast numbers of violations were the consequences of error and incompetence receive derisive attention.

“But this claim itself was in a court submission intended to exculpate the agency from what would otherwise have been an intentional violation of the court’s order. There is absolutely no reason to believe the claims of incompetence and honest error; there is more reason to assume that these are intended to cover up a worse truth: intentional violations.

“Second, the subversion. Last week, we learned that the NSA’s strategy to enhance its surveillance capabilities was to weaken internet security in general. The NSA infiltrated the social-professional standard-setting organizations on which the whole internet relies, from National Institute of Standards and Technology to the Internet Engineering Task Force itself, the very institutional foundation of the internet, to weaken the security standards.

“Moreover, the NSA combined persuasion and legal coercion to compromise the commercial systems and standards that offer the most basic security systems on which the entire internet runs.

“The NSA undermined the security of the SSL standard critical to online banking and shopping, VPN products central to secure corporate, research, and healthcare provider networks, and basic email utilities.”[12]

Put simply, the Israelis through the NSA control virtually everything that pertains to politics and major aspects of the Middle East.

There is more bad news: the NSA wants to monitor your visa and master card payments too! The German magazine Spiegel reports:

nsaThe National Security Agency (NSA) widely monitors international payments, banking and credit card transactions…

“The information…show that the spying is conducted by a branch called ‘Follow the Money’ (FTM). The collected information then flows into the NSA’s own financial databank, called ‘Tracfin,’ which in 2011 contained 180 million records. Some 84 percent of the data is from credit card transactions.

“Further NSA documents from 2010 show that the NSA also targets the transactions of customers of large credit card companies like VISA for surveillance.

“Their aim was to gain access to transactions by VISA customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, according to one presentation.”[13]

Both the UN and Al Jazeera, the Arab news broadcaster, were also victims of the NSA.[14] In the words of NSA director Keith Alexander, the NSA wants to “collect it all.”[15]

And there is no evidence showing that big companies such as Google will stop spying for Israel. Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, declared recently:

“There’s been spying for years, there’s been surveillance for years, and so forth, I’m not going to pass judgment on that, it’s the nature of our society.”[16]

What is even more interesting is that the NSA can actually impersonate companies such as Google “to gather data on people.”[17] In other words, Google does not even have to know what is actually happening.

The NSA and conspiracy theory

fordWhat we are seeing here is that the NSA is giving conspiracy theorists legitimate reasons to make what seems to be a rational case.  Here I am talking about those who put too much emphasis on the Protocols and who considers it as a legitimate book.

When the Protocols appeared in an English edition in 1920, the London Times did not approve its authenticity; nor did it reject it out of hand. In fact, it asked questions such as

“Have we been struggling these tragic years to blow up and extirpate the secret organization of German world dominion only to find beneath it another, more dangerous because more secret? Have we been straining every fiber of our national body, escaped a ‘Pax Germanica’ only to fall into the ‘Pax Judaica’?”[18]

The Chicago Tribune had a headline entitled “Trotsky Leads Jew-Radicals to World Rule. Bolshevism only a Tool for his Scheme.”[19] Some officers in the U.S. army were skeptical of the claims made in the Protocols, but they were impressed with what the Protocols described as actual Jewish revolutionary activities. An officer who doubted its authenticity declared,

“It is a fact that the present activities of Lenin, Trotsky and other Bolsheviks in Russia so correspond to the system as outlined herewith as to lead one to believe that this is actually the basic plan upon which the Bolshevik control functions.”[20] Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote:

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

“The Protocols … show a blueprint of a social system. Its design is well above abilities of an ordinary mind, including that of its publisher. It is a dynamic process of two stages, of destabilization, increasing freedom and liberalism, which is terminated in social cataclysm, and on the second stage, new hierarchical restructuring of society takes place.

“It is more complicated than a nuclear bomb. It could be a stolen and distorted plan designed by a mind of genius. Its putrid style of an anti-Semitic grubby brochure [intentionally] obscures the great strength of thought and insight.

“Its style is that of a filthy leaflet, the powerful line of thought is broken and fragmented, mixed up with ill-smelling incantations and psychological blunders.

“The system described is not necessarily connected with the Jews; it could be purely Masonic or whatever; while its strongly anti-Semitic current is not an organic part of the design.

“The text demonstrates impressive foresight on the two systems of society, the Western and the Soviet one. While a strong thinker could possibly predict the development of the West in 1901, how could he grasp the Soviet future?”[21]

Solzhenitsyn did not believe that the Protocols was authentic, and my idiosyncratic view is that the Protocols should never be treated as a reliable source from a scholarly point of view. The meticulous scholar will do well without it.

The litmus test is this:

Jewish revolutionaries have to prove the book to be wrong by dissociating themselves with Mephistophelian activities. The only way to prove that you are not a rapist is if you stay away from raping people.  The only way Jewish revolutionaries can disprove the book is if they stay away from subversive movements.

When a conspiracy theorist reads the Protocols and sees what is happening with the NSA, he will more than likely draw the conclusion that the Protocols is right.

For example, when Henry Ford read the Protocols and saw what Jewish revolutionaries were doing in world affairs, he declared that Jewish revolutionaries had a hand in which world affairs are loused up–and rightly so.[22]

Ford, of course, came to be known as America’s most famous anti-Semite and Jew-hater.[23] But the same writers who keep propounding that Ford was an anti-Semite do not want to see that Ford was also reacting to what Rabbis and Jewish revolutionaries themselves have said in public.

And how ironic that Jewish bankers such as Jacob Schiff tried to suppress Ford and brand him an anti-Semite while those same bankers were supporting the Bolshevik revolution.

Jacob Schiff

Jacob Schiff

Schiff, the wealthiest Jewish banker in the world at the time, hated the Tsarists and called Russia “the enemy of all mankind,”[24] and even financed plots against them.[25] All of that discussion is completely dismissed by those who castigate Ford as if he were the quintessential manifestation of anti-Semitism.

Neil Baldwin, author of Henry Ford and the Jews, is an interesting individual. At one point, Baldwin declares that

“Jacob Schiff worked to develop favorable reciprocal connections in other countries, as far away as Japan and China, and helped to make the company into a powerful contender not only in Europe but around the world….from the 1890s until czarist Russia’s fall in 1917, Schiff was engaged in a virtual ‘private war’ against that country.

“He was alert for discrimination, exclusionary practices, and slurs against Jews, socially and in the newspapers; with respect to Thomas Edison, the banker’s acerbic pen was quick to act in the spirit of righteousness.”[26]

Right! Schiff was just acting in the spirit of righteousness. As E. Michael Jones puts it:

“Schiff became a player in American-Russian relations when he used his

influence in the world of finance to back the Japanese and thwart Russian credit during the Russo-Japanese war. He also helped sway the mind of Theodore Roosevelt, whose sympathies were totally on the side of Japan…”

“Schiff took to heart the plight of the Russian Jews and was hostile to Russia until 1917. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, Schiff “belonged to the most important creditors of both his own and many foreign governments, part of which was the 200 million dollars which he lent to Japan during the Russo-Japanese war in 1904-5.”[27]

How to silence Henry Ford

The Jewish community could have easily silenced Ford by calling on Jewish revolutionaries to quit their subversive activities. Instead, they silenced Ford by suppressing what he actually has written, which factually corresponds to what was happening in the world during that time.

There’s more bad news. Israel Shamir writes,

“The Jews are destined to rule the world, preached Rabbi Leichtman, a leading Cabbalist, in a long article printed in Vesti, a Russian-Israeli paper. In the chat rooms of the Israeli Internet one can find more heady stuff. They quote an old poem by Uri Zvi Greenberg, a late Hebrew poet, who called for the extermination of the Gentiles.

“Greenberg did not limit himself to Palestinians, like the late Menachem Begin, nor only to Arabs, like the highest spiritual authority in Israel, Rabbi Obadiah Joseph. The extermination of Edom, a traditional code-word for European and American Gentiles, appears as a plausible option in the feverish minds of Cabbala followers.”[28]

Shamir is right in line with the historical record here. During the Middle Ages and beyond, Jewish prayers were intoned to curse Christians and Gentiles and to pronounce maledictions upon Christendom.[29]

Shamir continues,

“This feeling spills into the Jewish Diaspora. In the heart of the US, in Atlanta, there was a recent debate in the Jewish Community Centre in the presence of the Israeli Consul, a Jewish businessman, a prominent Atlanta rabbi and a New York Times reporter. An observer wrote to me, ‘I was struck mostly by the comments of the rabbi.

“While claiming to be a non-Zionist, he declared (we have him on tape) that the ultimate reason for creating Israel, as he sees it, is to become the world’s controller of power and wealth. Jews will eventually overthrow world governments and be assigned positions to lead the world…

At the other end of the world, in Russia, a Jewish follower of Sharon’s own ultra-Nationalist Jabotinsky movement, ‘Eliezer Dacevich-Voronel,’ who described himself as a University Professor, composed a poem:

‘We, the Chosen Ones, are united by hatred to the slave tribes that rose, dethroned our ancestors and rejected our God. Once you knew of your place in the world: ‘a swine must stay in its sty.’ You revolved, and forced us to serve you, but now your end is nigh. We are your masters. You are our slaves. This is God’s design. Soon our sun will rise again, and the slaves will not dare to look at it.”[30]

The Destruction of the Middle East

What's cooking doc?

What’s cooking doc?

Overthrowing governments and nations and substituting Jewish movements should not be a surprise to those who have been paying attention to current events. The Telegraph has recently declared that “early half the rebel fighters in Syria are now aligned to jihadist or hardline Islamist groups,”[31] but the Zionist regime in the U.S. has been supporting those jihadists since last year.

Moreover, even right after the Telegraph put out a study unequivocally detailing how the rebels are actually jihadists, the Associated Press came out with an article entitled, “West Vows to Increase Backing for Syrian Rebels”![32]

Those countries here are Britain, the U.S., and France. Those countries are accomplices in giving the Israeli regime a platform to destroy nations, families, and solidarity among decent Christians and Muslims. Just last Sunday,

“The jihadist Al-Nusra Front said in an Internet statement on Sunday its fighters attacked three villages in Syria’s Homs province and killed dozens of Alawites five days earlier.

“‘The people’s wall of fear has been broken, as this was the first time these villages were entered and such a high number was killed,’ the Al-Qaeda-linked group said in the statement published on a jihadist forum.”[33] Despite all of that, the Zionist regime continues to say that attacking Syria is still on the table.[34]

On the same day, 58 people lost their lives in Iraq. The San Francisco Chronicle tells us:

“Iraq is experiencing its deadliest bout of violence since 2008, raising fears the country is returning to a period of widespread killing such as that which pushed it to the brink of civil war following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. More than 4,000 people have been killed in attacks since the start of April, including 804 just in August, according to United Nations figures”[35]

On September 10th, 36 Iraqis killed in Iraq and 69 got wounded;[36] September 11th, 66 got killed and 77 wounded;[37] September 12th, 18 got killed and 45 wounded;[38] September 13th, 67 killed and 78 wounded;[39] September 14th, 46 dead and 67 wounded;[40] September 15th, 82 dead and 205 wounded.[41]

How would you like to see people dying by the dozens virtually every single day like that in America?

Just this past Monday, at least 12 people lost their lives during a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. Obama immediately announced:

“These are men and women who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us. They’re patriots, and they know the dangers of serving abroad. But today they faced the unimaginable: violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home. We will do everything in our power to make sure that whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible. I want the investigation to be seamless.”[42]

Fair enough. My heart goes out to the families of those people. But when people are losing their wives and children and closed friends and relatives in the Middle East virtually every single day, life goes on in the U.S. with no universal outrage. How do we expect those people to love America when we are letting the neo-Bolsheviks destroy virtually everything that the West represents?

The Middle East has progressively become a video game, and the neo-Bolsheviks get to tell us who lives and dies. Assad is the new Hitler, therefore we should drive him out. Iran is next, therefore we should start constructing arguments to nuke them. Even when Iran has agreed to shut their enrichment plant in order for the West to end sanctions against them,[43] that is not good enough.

How is it that serious politicians cannot see that this is why Muslim countries hate America? Listen to Osama bin Laden. Americans, says bin Laden, need to stay away from “from the fear and intellectual terrorism being practiced against you by the neoconservatives.”[44] Bin Laden continued,

“The bitter truth is that the neoconservatives are still a heavy burden on you.”[45]

The truth is actually bitter because the vast majority of Americans do not know that the neoconservatives are a heavy burden on them. And they had to learn that from bin Laden? No way!

And here’s the next thing to consider: when the United States announced that Osama bin Laden was allegedly dead in 2011, there was joy on virtually every street in America. Guess what? The Syrian rebels/terrorists have recently praised bin Laden![46]

So let us follow the Zionist premise here and see if there is any contradiction: Obama takes one step forward by “killing” bin Laden but two steps backwards by creating than ten thousand bin Ladens when he obviously supports Syrian rebels. If that is not a logical contradiction, I do not know what is.

If that does not get on your nerve, here is what one rebel said last December: “When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!”[47]

"I'm going to deter terrorism by supporting the Syrian rebels/terrorists...The audacity of Zionism."

“I’m going to deter terrorism by supporting the Syrian rebels/terrorists…The audacity of Zionism.”

If that still does not give you Goosebumps, the rebels even have an “indoctrination” program during which children and civilians are being brainwashed into hard-core terrorism. The Telegraph says that the program “seems it is some sort of a long-term plan to brainwash the children and recruit potential fighters.”[48]

And just in case some lunatic fringe out there still believes that it was Assad who actually used chemical weapons, “The head of the opposition Syrian Supreme Military Council said on Saturday a U.S.-Russian agreement to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was a blow to the two-and-a-half-year uprising to remove President Bashar al-Assad from power.”[49]

How can that be a low blow when Assad wants to eliminate his chemical weapons? Well, if Assad no longer has chemical weapons, the rebels won’t be able to use their own chemical weapons and blame it on Assad anymore.

Anne Barnard of the New York Times declares that this news “left rebels deflated” because  “Rebels who had hoped to capitalize on a military strike to regain momentum in the fighting are now bracing for the opposite…”[50]

So how are the rebels going to respond to the new deal? Well, they’ve already got a new lie going:

“Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces are smuggling chemical weapons to Hezbollah hidden in trucks carrying vegetables in order to escape international chemical inspection, Syrian opposition member Dr. Kamal Labwani told Saudi newspaper Al Watan on Monday.”[51]

And of course, the neo-Bolsheviks/Zionists agree with the rebels in saying that both Assad and Putin are deceiving the West. For Max Boot and Jonathan S. Tobin of Commentary declare,

“the Russian-sponsored process to get rid of Assad’s chemical weapons is an invitation for the Syrian tyrant to delay and obstruct any efforts to actually remove the toxic material and lock the U.S. into a partnership with a man that even United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon labeled as a criminal.”[52]

What is even more interesting is that “President Barack Obama has authorized the United States government to provide chemical weapons-related assistance to groups in Syria, including training for chemical weapons attacks and protective equipment for “select vetted members” of Syrian opposition force.”[53]

Once again, how can the U.S. provide chemical weapons-related assistance to the rebels when Assad has agreed to dismantle his chemical weapons?

Well, there is more to the “weapons-related assistance” than meets the eye and ear. As we saw in the previous article, the chemicals weapons that were used in Syria were made right in the U.S.

Ron Paul and the neocons

What we are seeing here is that Ron Paul was more right than he ever could have imagined when he stated:

“The neo-con ideology promotes endless war, but neo-cons fight their battles with the blood of others. From the comfortable, subsidized offices of magazines like the Weekly Standard, the neo-conservatives urge the United States to engage in endless war – to be fought by the victims of the ‘poverty draft’ from states where there are few jobs.

“Ironically, these young people cannot find more productive work because the Federal Reserve’s endless money printing to keep the war machine turning has destroyed our economy.”[54]

William Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, Joe Lieberman, among other Jewish neocons, never served in the military. But they have the political advance to tell us that we need to bomb countries in the Middle East.

The article from which Paul’s statement was taken is entitled, “Neo-Con War Addiction Threatens Our Future.” This form of addiction threatens our future because the neocons take orders from the Israeli regime and pass it on to much of the Western world. For example, Netanyahu supported Assad in the past.[55]

But now Assad is the “new Hitler” who must be expunged—and it is the West that must carry out the job, not Israel! Israeli officials have already calculated that attacking Syria would be too costly and would bring too much consequence,[56] but they want the West to attack Syria and carry the economic and political consequences on their shoulders.
