The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah

Ezra-Nehemiah of the Hebrew bible is mainly concerned about the maintenance of Jewish racial purity and that they should not intermarry because the Goyim are inferior.

Racial Purity

Ezra 9:1 After these things had been done, the leaders came to me and said, “The people of Israel, including the priests and the Levites, have not kept themselves separate from the neighboring peoples with their detestable practices, like those of the Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians and Amorites. 2 They have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, and have mingled the holy race with the peoples around them. And the leaders and officials have led the way in this unfaithfulness.”

3 When I heard this, I tore my tunic and cloak, pulled hair from my head and beard and sat down appalled.

7 From the days of our ancestors until now, our guilt has been great. Because of our sins, we and our kings and our priests have been subjected to the sword and captivity, to pillage and humiliation at the hand of foreign kings, as it is today.

11 you gave through your servants the prophets when you said: ‘The land you are entering to possess is a land polluted by the corruption of its peoples. By their detestable practices they have filled it with their impurity from one end to the other. 12 Therefore, do not give your daughters in marriage to their sons or take their daughters for your sons. Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them at any time, that you may be strong and eat the good things of the land and leave it to your children as an everlasting inheritance.’

13 “What has happened to us is a result of our evil deeds and our great guilt, and yet, our God, you have punished us less than our sins deserved and have given us a remnant like this. 14 Shall we then break your commands again and intermarry with the peoples who commit such detestable practices? Would you not be angry enough with us to destroy us, leaving us no remnant or survivor?

Ezra 10:2 Then Shekaniah son of Jehiel, one of the descendants of Elam, said to Ezra, “We have been unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women from the peoples around us. But in spite of this, there is still hope for Israel. 3 Now let us make a covenant before our God to send away all these women and their children, in accordance with the counsel of my lord and of those who fear the commands of our God. Let it be done according to the Law.

10 Then Ezra the priest stood up and said to them, “You have been unfaithful; you have married foreign women, adding to Israel’s guilt. 11 Now honor the Lord, the God of your ancestors, and do his will. Separate yourselves from the peoples around you and from your foreign wives.”

14 Let our officials act for the whole assembly. Then let everyone in our towns who has married a foreign woman come at a set time, along with the elders and judges of each town, until the fierce anger of our God in this matter is turned away from us.”

16 On the first day of the tenth month they sat down to investigate the cases, 17 and by the first day of the first month they finished dealing with all the men who had married foreign women.

44 All these had married foreign women, and some of them had children by these wives.

Nehemiah 2:20 I answered them (Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab) by saying, “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it.”

9:2 Those of Israelite descent had separated themselves from all foreigners. They stood in their places and confessed their sins and the sins of their ancestors.

10:30 “We promise not to give our daughters in marriage to the peoples around us or take their daughters for our sons.

13:3 When the people heard this law, they excluded from Israel all who were of foreign descent.

23 Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. 24 Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. 25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves.

27 Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?”

30 So I purified the priests and the Levites of everything foreign, and assigned them duties, each to his own task.

Return to Israel

Nehemiah 1:8 “Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, 9 but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’

Profiting off your fellow Jews is wrong

5:1 Now the men and their wives raised a great outcry against their fellow Jews. 2 Some were saying, “We and our sons and daughters are numerous; in order for us to eat and stay alive, we must get grain.”

3 Others were saying, “We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards and our homes to get grain during the famine.”

4 Still others were saying, “We have had to borrow money to pay the king’s tax on our fields and vineyards. 5 Although we are of the same flesh and blood as our fellow Jews and though our children are as good as theirs, yet we have to subject our sons and daughters to slavery. Some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but we are powerless, because our fields and our vineyards belong to others.”

6 When I heard their outcry and these charges, I was very angry. 7 I pondered them in my mind and then accused the nobles and officials. I told them, “You are charging your own people interest!” So I called together a large meeting to deal with them 8 and said: “As far as possible, we have bought back our fellow Jews who were sold to the Gentiles. Now you are selling your own people, only for them to be sold back to us!” They kept quiet, because they could find nothing to say.

9 So I continued, “What you are doing is not right. Shouldn’t you walk in the fear of our God to avoid the reproach of our Gentile enemies? 10  I and my brothers and my men are also lending the people money and grain. But let us stop charging interest! 11 Give back to them immediately their fields, vineyards, olive groves and houses, and also the interest you are charging them—one percent of the money, grain, new wine and olive oil.”

12 “We will give it back,” they said. “And we will not demand anything more from them. We will do as you say.”

6:1 When word came to Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab and the rest of our enemies that I had rebuilt the wall and not a gap was left in it—though up to that time I had not set the doors in the gates

Why I Believe the Free Markets Empower Con-Artists

I used to be a big believer in the free-markets. For years I followed the Austrian School of libertarian free-market economics and read books by the likes of Murray Rothbard and Harry Browne. Proponents of libertarianism believe that the free markets are self-regulating and that the markets punish those who engage in corruption. They place strong emphasis on the individual and that the individual takes full responsibilities for their action and any consequences that arise from it.

Libertarianism is one of those ideologies that sound good in theory but is ultimately unworkable in all but the simplest societies. I’ve concluded that a libertarian society is in fact detrimental to the well being of a society over the long run. One thing I’ve noticed that free-market proponents shy away from is that of addressing actual human behavior. They rarely address the human and emotional side of things and the fact that humans evolved as social animals interdependent among one another. We did not evolve in a glass tube. We are not robots. We get emotional when listening to a touching speech and we get angry when someone cheats us. In particular humans have a huge weakness when it comes to recognizing and avoiding psychological manipulation – especially ones that exploit our emotions of fear and greed. No one is immune from this – not even libertarians who are considered among the most rational of all.

Now I believe that the free markets work well when it comes to goods and services that you can easily make rational decisions in regards to it’s quality and utility. However when it comes to goods, services, and entities that are exploitive of your psychological weaknesses we need something that protects society from those menaces. We need safeguards to protect the long-term interests of the people. When profits are the sole motive an entity exists, there will always be corruption. As for the con-artist(s), the reason they exist is to exploit you in order to gain money or power or to get you to support an agenda.

It was my investigation of Jeff Berwick’s series of scams that caught my attention and got me thinking about this matter. Berwick is a popular libertarian activist out of Canada who has been pushing all sorts of controversial services such as marketing fake passports and selling land in South America at huge markups. He runs the site dollarvigilante.com. Berwick promoted a supposed libertarian paradise called Galts Gulch Chile that was to be a haven for libertarian-minded folks who wanted to escape the “tyranny” of government. There had been numerous reports that Berwick did not fall through on his end of the deal and fleeced his investors out of millions of dollars.

Almost all of the buyers and investors into GGC – 73 families paid in over $10 million – are libertarian and as such they have been attacked publicly as rich, greedy misanthropes who were so hopelessly naive as to think they were escaping the government by moving to Chile. Being libertarians, many of GGC’s investors were against the use of government courts to correct the injustices and receive the property they paid for. But what they found was that there simply was no other way to regain their stolen property without doing so. —-Jeff Berwick, realizing why government exists for the first time

Among the main reasons why folks such as Jeff Berwick and Doug Casey chose to do business in South America was to escape the legal jurisdictions of Canada and the US. In that way fleeced investors cannot easily go after them. Mike Stathis on Jeff Berwick at the 20:50 mark:

The Gold Pumping Network

Gold pumpers are another example of swindlers thriving in a free-market society. Now while I do believe in the importance of owning some precious metals I never jumped on the “imminent dollar collapse” and “gold to the moon” bandwagon. In fact I believed that hyperinflation was impossible because of the record low interest rate environment. The gold pumpers never addressed that.

The gold pumping movement is a cartel. It is a mafia. Folks like Peter Schiff, Jeff Berwick, Max Keiser, Doug Casey, and others interview each other and promote and sponsor each other’s products and services. To no surprise the message from each one of those folks sound the exact same. Gold is going to the moon! The dollar is gonna collapse! Chances are if the average viewer is on a Peter Schiff site they will also be assessing a number of other gold and libertarian sites, which will more or less be saying the same thing. The two most effective tools of media propaganda is the “flooding approach” and painting the issue as “black and white”. The flooding technique involves getting the message or story exposed on as many media channels possible. In painting the issue black and white, the idea is to repeat the story in the same way across as many mediums as possible so as to leave no doubt in the viewer’s mind. The gold pumpers have their target audience in mind. They market their services primarily to those who are skeptical of the establishment, the banking system, and the government.

Among the most effective propaganda techniques is to take some bits of truth and completely blow them up and out of proportion to the actual reality. We all know the Fed is corrupt. We all know Wall Street is run by a bunch of crooks. Con-artists tell you what you want to hear. They pretend to be your friend and after your best interests. Con-artists are especially effective when they promote their message through fear-mongering. Jeff Berwick’s Dollar Vigilante website’s slogan is “surviving and prospering during and after the dollar collapse“.

The fact is the gold dealers are making huge money off of commissions and they continue to enjoy the doomsday programming that have saturated the alternative media. They don’t care about being right. All they care about is taking your money.

Mass Media

Mass media is the biggest source of mass deception. This includes not just the mainstream media but probably much of the alternative media as well. The propaganda techniques of mass media is the same as those listed just above. When it comes to the media we have been conditioned to look just at the surface. Most of us simply listen and digest literally what comes out of the mouths of those media personalities without stopping to think about what purpose those people and organizations serve. Why are they telling you this or that? Are they really on your side or are they doing it for money? And if it’s money who is funding them? Do those programs have sponsors? Who are their sponsors and what other organizations are the sponsors affiliated with?

Religious hucksters and Cult leaders

Organized religion is one of the most powerful tools of societal control and one that the establishment uses very effectively. Hucksters and cult leaders spreading fear of punishment by a supernatural deity if you don’t do this or that gets people to react in ways they wouldn’t otherwise do. The susceptibility to believe in magic, miracles, and the supernatural may even be genetic. If this is so, it is easy to see how so many can get duped and swindled by those with bad intentions. Propagated on a mass scale, it is an excellent way of undermining the existing order of society. Jim Jones, who headed the Peoples Temple in which 918 members committed suicide, is probably the most well known cultist who used religion to exploit his followers.

Conclusion

Savvy con-artists get rewarded by the free markets. Con-artists who make their scheming and deception obvious get punished by the free-markets while those who do the best job of hiding their deception thrive. Con-artists like Peter Schiff are rock stars. He is a celebrity, a media darling, and a best selling author. Schiff has a net worth of $70 million. He got rich despite being consistently wrong on the markets and despite losing a lot of money for his investors. But does it really matter? What matters is that Schiff was able to successfully funnel money out of his sheep and become rich.

 

 

Puritanism, Zionism, and the New Jerusalem

The Puritans, who practiced the teachings of John Calvin (likely a crypto-Jew who’s last name may have been Cohen), could have been the first “Christian” Zionists – at least the first influential group of Christian Zionists. They were instrumental in the founding of the United States and shaping the early beginnings of the country. Puritanism, also known as Calvinism, was really Judaism for Gentiles. The Puritans based their beliefs almost entirely on the set of satanic Jewish scriptures known as the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. They went beyond kissing the ass of the “Chosenites”. The Puritans essentially saw the Jews as God.

Locating their town on the sea coast north of Boston, the Puritans nodded directly to Jerusalem by calling their settlement Salem. Obsessed with the Hebrew Bible, these separatists identified with the Exodus from Egypt and the vision of life in a New World, covenanted to God. They called themselves “New Zion,” or “Christian Israel,” and the Old Testament was their guide to naming children, towns and mountains, and the legal source for their founding charters. – Rabbi Ken Spiro, Aish

The familiar story that we’ve been taught in history class was that many Europeans fled to America to escape “religious persecution”. In reality those people practiced a type of belief system that was a threat to the normal order of things. (If you do not already know the wickedness of what is in the OT, I advise you to read my posts concerning those books of the bible) It was a threat not just to the British monarchy but to the common citizens as well.

Previously, during the Puritan Revolution in England, (1642-1648) some Puritan extremists had even sought to replace English common law with Biblical laws of the Old Testament, but were prevented from doing so. In America, however, there was far more freedom to experiment with the use of Biblical law in the legal codes of the colonies and this was exactly what these early colonists set out to do. – Rabbi Spiro

Time after time again Jews have been leading revolutions that have destroyed the governments of Gentiles. Take a look into the French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, the World Wars, the War on Terror, and the recent Arab Spring. Jews have been behind each one of those revolutions. The “Puritan Revolution” was really no different.

The most fanatical Puritans were the ones that set off to the New World. They saw themselves as reenacting the story in Exodus where Moses led the Israelites out of bondage from Egypt. (What the church conveniently leave out of course was that the Israelites were infiltrating and subverting the Egyptian government and stealing the wealth of the country prior to being enslaved, as told in Genesis). The Puritans saw themselves as Pilgrims (the holiday of Thanksgiving commemorates this event), England as Egypt, the King as the Pharoah, the Atlantic Ocean as the Red Sea, America as Israel, and the Indians as the Canaanites. Here is what the bible says of the Canaanites:

Genesis 13:14-17 The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see (Canaan) I will give to you and your offspring forever. I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.”

Deuteronomy 7:1-2 When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you — and when the Lord your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

Everything that the Puritans practiced was that of advancing world Jewry and helping make America the “control center” of world Jewish hegemony. Christopher Columbus’ voyage to the New World in 1492 (the same years Jews were kicked out of Spain) was financed by Jews and the slave trade was entirely in the hands of Jews. What percentage of the Puritans were actually Jews is unknown but there is no question that Jews were behind their leadership. Almost assuredly the Jews were preaching to the Puritans about how they were one of the “lost tribes” of Israel and that they are actually Jews. The Jews have done this in so many other parts of the world wherever they have gone. They would convince the Gentiles that they are actually Jews to get them to subvert their governments and support Jewish causes.

The Puritan colonists seeing they were doing the work of God were hellbent on making the Hebrew bible the legal foundation of the law of the land.

Subsequently, the New Haven legislators adopted a legal code ― the Code of 1655 ― which contained some 79 statutes, half of which contained Biblical references, virtually all from the Hebrew Bible. The Plymouth Colony had a similar law code as did the Massachusetts assembly, which, in 1641 adopted the so-called “Capital Laws of New England” based almost entirely on Mosaic law. – Spiro

So entrenched was the obsession over the use of Judaic scriptures for daily living that the Hebrew language found it’s way into daily life. William Bradford, a governor of the Plymouth Colony, was the leader of the pilgrims that set off on the Mayflower for the New World.

(Bradford) is recorded as being fanatical about the Hebrew language as he believed that after his death he would speak “the most ancient language”, Hebrew, with God and the angels. – Tsivya Fox, Breaking News Israel

A vote was taken on the Mayflower as to which language the settlers would use in the New World. Apparently, Hebrew lost by just one vote.

The Hebrew Bible played a major role in the founding of leading universities such as Harvard, Yale, William and Mary, Rutgers, Princeton, Brown, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Dartmouth etc.

Many of these colleges even adopted some Hebrew word or phrase as part of their official emblem or seal. Beneath the banner containing the Latin “Lux et Veritas,” the Yale seal shows an open book with the Hebrew “Urim V’Timum,” which was a part of the breastplate of the High Priest in the days of the Temple. The Columbia seal has the Hebrew name for God at the top center, with the Hebrew name for one of the angels on a banner toward the middle. Dartmouth uses the Hebrew words meaning “God Almighty” in a triangle in the upper center of its seal.

So popular was the Hebrew Language in the late 16th and early 17th centuries that several students at Yale delivered their commencement orations in Hebrew. Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Brown, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Pennsylvania taught courses in Hebrew ― all the more remarkable because no university in England at the time offered it. – Rabbi Spiro

Notes for “Stop the Cops”

The following is a transcript from the Stop the Cops material on CD. The following is intended for my listeners and viewers on my Bitchute and Youtube channels.

YOU MUST NOT ENTER A PLEA during the arraignment.

No I do not understand the charges.

Your honor I cannot enter a plea unless a get a few questions answered.

I don’t understand the nature and the causes of the charges against me.

Is this case going to be heard under a civil jurisdiction or a criminal jurisdiction?
