Phil Geraldi: Who created a war-addicted America? Understanding Jewish Power


saban and adelson
I recently was asked to speak at an online conference entitled Deep Truth: Encountering Deep State Lies. My panel addressed Understanding Zionism: Deconstructing the Power Paradigm and my own topic was How Jewish Power Sustains the Israel Narrative. Working on my presentation, I was forced to confront the evolution of my own views on both the corruption of government in the United States and the ability of powerful domestic lobbies to deliberately distort the perception of national interests to benefit foreign countries even when that activity does terrible damage to the U.S.
My personal journey began half a century ago. I became part of the U.S. national security state after being drafted for the Vietnam War when I graduated from college in 1968. I was at the time, vaguely pro-war, having bought into the media argument that international communism was mounting a major threat in southeast Asia. I also found the anti-war student movement distasteful because I was acquainted with many of its spokesmen and knew that they were chiefly motivated by a desire to avoid the draft, not due to any perception that the war itself was wrong or misguided. I knew a lot about the Punic Wars but precious little about former French Indochina and I suspect that those chanting “Ho-ho-Ho Chi Minh” might have known even less that I did.
Because I spoke some Russian, I wound up in an army intelligence collection unit in West Berlin for three years where I and my fifty or so comrades did absolutely nothing but drink and party. It was my introduction to how government really works when it was not working at all and it did provide me with GI Bill money to go to grad school. After my PhD came a relatively easy transition to CIA given the fact that my degree was so obscure that no one but the government would hire me.
The journey from an army unit that was asleep at the wheel to the CIA, which was in full downsizing crisis mode post-Vietnam, was educational. Whereas the army was too bloated and complacent even to fake it, the Agency was fully capable of creating crises and then acting like the defender of American interests as it worked to resolve the various situations that it had invented. The war against Eurocommunism, which I was engaged in, was hyped and billed as the next great threat against the American way of life after the Vietnam blunder, swallowing up resources pointlessly as neither France, nor Spain nor Italy ever came close to entering the Red orbit.
As I climbed up the CIA ladder I also noticed something else. There was the equivalent of a worldwide conspiracy to promote threats to keep big national security-based government well-funded and in place. When I was in Turkey I began to note considerable intelligence liaison reporting coming from the Israelis and others promoting their own agendas. The material was frequently fictional in nature, but the danger was that it was being mixed in with more credible reporting which gave it traction. U.S. government consumers of the reporting would inevitably absorb the dubious viewpoint being promoted that Arabs and Iranians were fundamentally untrustworthy and were in bed with the Soviets.
There was considerable negative reporting on Saddam Hussein also coming out of Israel and motivated by his support of the Palestinians. Some of this ultimately surfaced in the Pentagon’s Paul Wolfowitz-Doug Feith assessments of “intelligence that had been missed” which eventually became pretexts for the catastrophic Iraq War. I later learned that both Feith and Wolfowitz had a virtually revolving door of Israeli intelligence officials and diplomats running through their Pentagon offices in the lead-up to that war.
It did not take much to connect the dots and realize that Israel, far from being a friend and ally, was the principal catalyst for the many missteps that the United States has made in the Middle East. U.S. policy in the region was being deliberately shaped around Israeli concerns by American Jews ensconced in the Pentagon and White House who certainly knew exactly what they were doing. No one should blame the Israelis for acting in their own self-interest, but every loyal American should blame the Libbys, Feiths and Wolfowitzes for their willingness to place Israeli interests ahead of those of their own country.
After my departure from government in part over my disagreement with the Iraq War, this willingness to place the United States in peril to serve the interests of a foreign country began to bother me, and there is no country that manipulates the U.S. government better or more persistently than Israel. I gradually became involved with those who were pushing back against the Israel Lobby, though it was not generally referred to in those terms before Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer produced their seminal work The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy in 2006.
It does not take a genius to figure out that the United States is deeply involved in a series of seemingly endless wars pitting it against predominantly Muslim nations even though Washington has no vital interests at stake in places like Syria, Libya and Iraq. Who is driving the process and benefiting? Israel is clearly the intended beneficiary of a coordinated effort mounted by more than 600 Jewish organizations in the U.S. that have at least as part of their programs the promotion and protection of Israel. Ironically, organizations that promote the interests of a foreign government are supposed to be registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA) but not a single pro-Israel organization has ever done so nor even been seriously challenged on the issue, a tribute to their power in dealing with the federal government.
Those who are in the drivers’ seat of the Israel promotion process are what some would describe as the Israel Lobby but which I would prefer to call a subset of the Jewish Lobby, which in itself is supported by something I would designate Jewish Power, an aggregate of Jewish money, control over key aspects of the media and entertainment industries plus easy access to corrupted politicians desirous of positive press and campaign donations. This penetration and control of the public discourse has resulted in the creation of what I would refer to as the official “Israel narrative,” in which Israel, which claims perpetual victimhood, is reflexively referred to as “the only democracy in the Middle East” and “Washington’s closest ally and friend,” assertions that are completely false but which have been aggressively and successfully promoted to shape how Americans view the Israeli-Arab conflict. Palestinians resisting the Israeli occupation are invariably described as “terrorists” both in the U.S. and Israel.
Jewish Power is a funny thing. If you read the Jewish media or the Israeli press, to include Forward, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Haaretz or the Jerusalem Post, you will find frequent references to it, nearly always seen as completely laudable. Bottom feeder Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard recently boasted that “Jews should not apologize for being so rich, controlling the media or influencing public debate…they have earned it…never apologize for using your strength…”
For many Jews like Dershowitz, Jewish power is something to be proud of, but they also believe that it should never be noticed or examined by non-Jews. Gentile criticism of Jewish collective behavior is something that must continue to be forbidden, just as the expression “Israeli Lobby” was largely taboo before Walt and Mearsheimer. Israeli partisans regularly engage in the defamation of individuals, including myself, who do not conform to the taboos as anti-Semites or holocaust deniers, labels deliberately used as weapons to end discussion and silence critics whenever necessary.
So why do I think that we have to start talking about Jewish Power as opposed to the euphemism Israel Lobby? It is because the wars in the Middle East, which have done so much to damage the United States and were at least in part arranged to benefit Israel, have been largely driven by wealthy and powerful Jews. If America goes to war with Iran, as is increasingly likely, it will be all about Israel and it will be arranged by the political and financial services Washington-Wall Street axis, make no mistake.
To my mind, Israel is America’s number one foreign policy problem in that it is able and willing to start potentially catastrophic wars with countries that it has demonized but that do not threaten the U.S. And those doing the manipulating are bipartisan Jewish oligarchs with deep pockets that support the multitude of pro-Israel organizations, think tanks and media outlets that have done so much to corrupt America’s political process. Hollywood producer Haim Saban, a principal Democratic Party supporter, has said that he is a one issue guy and that issue is Israel. Principal GOP funder casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who served in the U.S. Army in World War 2, has said that he regrets that service and would have preferred to be in the Israel Defense Forces. They as well as others, including fund manager Paul Singer and Home Depot’s Bernard Marcus, are Jews laboring on behalf of the self-proclaimed Jewish State while the neoconservatives, fiercely protective of Israel, are also nearly all Jewish. Asserting that the fact that they are Jews acting for a Jewish state should be irrelevant as they are also doing what is good for America, as is commonly done by their apologists, is logically inconsistent and borders on absurdity. As for the frequently cited Bible belt Christian-Zionists who support Israel, they are, to be sure, numerous, but they do not have the access to real power in the United States that Jews have.
Jewish Power is also what has in part driven the United States into a moral cesspit. Israeli snipers shoot dead scores of unarmed Gazan demonstrators and hardly anyone in Washington has anything to say about it. America’s Ambassador to Israel, an Orthodox Jewish lawyer named David Friedman who has multiple ties to Israel’s illegal settlements, uses his position to defend Israel, ignoring U.S. interests. Last week he held a press conference in which he told reporters to “shut their mouths” in their criticism of Israel’s slaughter of Gazans.
When a young Palestinian nurse is deliberately targeted and killed while treating a wounded man, it hardly appears in the U.S. media. Arab teenagers are shot in the back while running away from Israeli gunmen while a young woman is sentenced to prison for slapping an Israel soldier who had just shot her cousin and was invading her home. Heavily armed Israeli settlers run amok on the West Bank, beating and killing Arabs and destroying their livelihoods. That is what Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are all about and that is precisely the kind of a nation that America should not want to become, but unfortunately the role of Washington as Israel’s obedient poodle has our once great country moving in the wrong direction. This has all been brought about by Jewish Power and it is time to wake up to that fact and address it squarely.

  1. Different story, same old origins. The dimbulb American is to blame for most of these tragic aberrations in national policy. Employing ignorance and indifference, the American shows his casual and total disregard for knowing about his country. Had we a nationalistic outlook, as South Korea, for instance, we'd muster enough pride to learn about our country and to hold in highest regard that country. Such is tragically not the case. Revisionistic textbooks lie about our origins, our past and our future. Distortion is introduced into our national being and Americans, showing their typical lack of interest, don't know enough to help them hang on to our nation's endogenous origins. Don't know, don't care. We don't know enough to muster enough love for our nation, a pitiful realization. A coherent and collective mentality would allow America to become, again, the voice of Americans and not the proxied indifference to our sad present and future. These tragic facts are not accidental. They reflect the attack on America that has gutted our state of mind. Don't know, don't care. America is in dire straits.

  2. My own theory on things cultural and the Jews is that Jews can't do what they do BY THEMSELVES

  3. Corrupt, Over-Populated Gentiles Suffer Inexorable Hubris In satanic Society

    My theory about Jews and the cultures they infest and actually commandeer is that (a) Jews can't do what they do BY THEMSELVES. (b) What happens is Jews are actually a disease which can only affect a culture ALREADY essentially corrupt, decadent, and degenerate, as we see USA is.

    (c) Thus Jews can be understood according to CYCLIC theory, as of Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West" whence gentiles, in perfect accord w. the ROMAN pattern, begin w. truly heroic and brave origin generations, but eventually give-in to decadence, the following generations never having to fight for their lives like the founders and originals.

    Thus the corrupted generations indulge in idea they're "good," suffering HUBRIS, despite Christian philosophy (embedded within the literature and religion) teaching humans are inherently and incorrigibly "sinful"--as they're given to necessary self-interest as creatures of will.

    Humans only possible redemption is keeping to honesty, realizing they're sinners, incapable of "good"--which "good" doesn't really exist, philosophy demonstrating there's no solid premise that works in all situations for any real, meaningful, actual "good."

    But even more fundamentally, the corrupted humans begin to indulge in un-reason and even ANTI-reason, consistent w. hubris, pretending they're co-equal w. God, capable of a perfectly "free" will, w. power of creating reality, like "good" and "moral virtue."

    Thus "Christians" begin to pretending that "beleeeeeeeeeeeeevin" can actually change reality--simply by means of "beleeeeeeeeeeeving"--which now they call "faith" but which "faith" only properly means LOYALTY, NOT NOT NOT mere "beleeeeeeeeeeevin" which is cheap and changes nothing in the real, OBJECTIVE reality of Aristotle.

    Thus in the cultural and psychologic HUBRIS and evermore corrupt society, the erstwhile Christians become SATANISTIC by means of this corruption and cheap, hereticalist "beleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevin"--as we see now the corrupt Christian churches, along w. everyone else, esp. politicians, supporting gross murderous terror state of Israel, these fools of (false and phony) "Christians" now pretending, for example, Christ was "Jew"--when "Jew" properly means only followers of Pharisees and Talmud, "Jews" NOT NOT NOT same as Judeans. See Talmudical.blogspot.com and Come-and-hear.com.

    Remember "Satanism" is, at root, simply EXTREME subjectivism, idea that mind/consciousness is creator of reality, making oneself God, capable then of creating "good" and "virtue"--and note this was explicit "philosophy" of Immanuel Kant whom present Jews and establishment "edjumacation" now trumpet as foremost "philosophy," Kant the great "hero" of modern and now post-modern (anti-) philosophy.

    Jews naturally dominate this cultural corruption as they're (a) foremost satanists, (b) making use of most effective collectivistic subjectivism, most effective "group-think," (c) most organized and well-led, thus over-awing and intimidating the more isolated and stupid gentile subjectivists and satanists who indulge same basic subjectivism, BUT not nearly as well-organized.

    To confirm Jew subjectivism, just ck Talmudical.blogspot.com on Jew "midrash" (interpretation)--subjectivism ("midrash") is essence of their "religion."

  4. -----------------[HERE'S PART 2 TO ABOVE]---------------

    Thus Jews make sure to controlling the central-banking establishment (see Mises.org for best expo on central-banking; use site search-engine) which gives them their practical, existential power, keeping gentiles fighting one another, allowing Jews to continuing to dominate the general culture even though Jews seem vastly out-numbered--they're still the, by far, best organized, never forget or doubt--and that's enough to dominate, lead, and manipulate as they do so successfully and effectively, verified by hist.

    Natural, logical plan of satanism is to getting gentiles to killing-off one another so as to ease Jews' dictatorship--worked brilliantly in WWI and II.

    And the tragic problem for gentiles is it's hard and nearly impossible to resist this satanistic culture of death especially once Jews have firm control of central-banking, promoting false morality of non-existent "good" and perfectly "free" will.

    Gentiles seem then doomed to necessary "removal" and reduction of excess population so otherwise susceptible and subject to Jew "leadership" and domination within such corrupt, satanic, degenerate culture.

    But gentiles' (only) "hope" is there's "no honor among thieves," and Jews at top will themselves begin to falling-out among themselves, esp. as they see gentiles being steadily "bumped-off," the population steadily reduced, Jew masterminds now suspecting evermore they will be double-crossed--as we see is perhaps happening presently btwn the "atheistic," "globalist" Jews of the "left" vs. more "religious," "neo-con" Jews of the "right."

    People must begin to realize and see that healthy society/economy necessarily needs "sound money," NOT NOT NOT mere "currency" and legalized counterfeiting of practically infinite currency which steadily devaluates the currency unit to benefit only of top bankers and their satellites. Real commodity money must be FINITE and limited in amount against this pernicious, un-limited in quantity, nearly infinite "currency."

    Meantime, gentiles excess population will continue to dying-off and being killed--only this sort of tragedy seems to motivate the remainder population to thinking and realizing necessity of such as "sound" money over corrupt currency and central-banking. Amen.

  5. Phil: This is an excellent statement of the problem. It is not the first time it has been elucidated. But the question is what can one do about it without advocating illegal action? Many laws are being broken right now but no one in authority is enforcing the laws. As you said there are laws requiring registration of lobbying groups. Laws against conflicts of interest such as the current ambassador to Israel. The entire 9/11 commission and report were a scam. Unindicted criminals Bush, Cheney and the four star generals have never even been forced to simply testify under oath in public about what they know and did on 9/11 let alone be indicted and prosecuted for their crimes. One could go on and on and on. The entire “Patriot” Act is an unconstitutional joke but much of it is still on the books unchallenged! The point is lawyers are required to do something about all this corruption but none are stepping up to the plate and it is not clear any amount of money would entice them to do so. Why are not any members of our "justice department" enforcing the existing laws? Remember Representative Jim Traficant of Ohio who spoke out on the Israeli issue? He ended up in jail and quite dead of an "accident". The Israeli gangsters and mob have illegally hi jacked our government. Everyone with the power to speak up and make a difference is scared to death. This is why they continue to win and will win, and indeed may have already won, if something drastic is not done and done soon. They are the criminals against whom the existing laws are NOT being enforced. We are the lowly citizens who seek to follow the law but we are being shafted. How does one respond to the obvious "Hobson's" choice without becoming the same criminals these folks are? Winfield J. Abbe, Ph.D., Physics

  6. If you understand Jewish power, then you understand it's destroying the world, not just the USA.

  7. Likudist America is greatly aided in its subversions by the 70 million Christian Zionists. Waiting for their Rapture, they can't get enough of the hyperbolic wishes to come their way and allow Israel to take over America. Can these people, some of whom are our friends, be considered traitors? You know the answer to that question, don't cha?
