38 North is a NGO comprised of academics, veteran diplomats and assorted experts dedicated to solving America’s issues with North Korea

Dear 38 North

I have read your open letter, In Strong Support of Ambassador Biegun, addressed to the American ambassador who will serve as envoy to North Korea. While it is noteworthy you had pointed out there will be difficulties with making progress with the USA side, not only North Korea, I think it is important to be specific; in regards to the formidable obstacles presented to North Korea in the Americans:

Large segments of the public continue to believe that America’s constitutionally established, dignified institutions are the locus of governmental power; by promoting that impression, both sets of institutions maintain public support. But when it comes to defining and protecting national security, the public’s impression is mistaken. America’s efficient institution [intelligence agencies] makes most of the key decisions concerning national security, removed from public view and from the constitutional restrictions that check America’s dignified institutions. The United States has, in short, moved beyond a mere imperial presidency to a bifurcated system—a structure of double government—in which even the President now exercises little substantive control over the overall direction of U.S. national security policy”

This preceding is a largely unchallenged assumption within the intelligence agencies, where there is little debate as to the fact, not the proposal, of the ‘Trumanite’ versus ‘Madisonian’ institutions or ‘double government.’ Where there is divergent opinion, concerns this next:

“Members of America’s efficient institutions have not secretly colluded in some dark plot aimed at wresting control over national security from its dignified institutions. What may appear in these institutions’ collective motivation as conscious parallelism has in fact been a wholly open and, indeed, unabashed response to incentives deeply rooted in the legal and political structures in which they operate”

In fact former Pentagon liaison to the CIA had disputed this nearly fifty years ago when he stated:

“By the end of 1962 this nation had gone so far down the line following the Agency [CIA], the new Special Forces doctrine, the MAP [military assistance plan], and the new U.S. philosophy as outlined in the President’s Committee report, that it was saying openly it was well on its way to carrying out as top national policy a major clandestine operation so big in fact that the entire government would be involved. Obviously, it could not be really clandestine in the sense that it would be kept secret from our enemies; on the contrary, it was a new kind of “clandestine”, so it would be kept secret from all Americans”L. Fletcher Prouty

This indicates the Trumanite network, or intelligence agencies, based on the National Security Act of 1947, the watershed event leading to today’s circumstance, had planned and subsequently pursued concerted effort to consolidate control over the civil institutions of these United States. Any honest analysis concerning the potpourri comprising the intelligence agencies should mention a longtime incestuous relationship with corporate boards (originally a CIA legacy of Allen Dulles, taken forward by GHW Bush) to present; where peace is not in the interests of McDonnell-Douglas and General Dynamics and the stockholders bottom line, examples given. Moreover, of even greater concern would be the related Christian millennialism (Doug Coe) cult behind the National Prayer Breakfast and its’ membership represented in Mike Pence, Dan Coats and Mike Pompeo (among others, notably Betsy DeVoss, sister of Eric Prince.) It is noteworthy the Military Religious Freedom Foundation‘s Mikey Weinstein is of the opinion the United States Air Force is under the near complete control of this cult or at least related cult personalities, with the other service branches well on their way to co-option away from Madisonian (constitutional) structures control.

In any case, what is relevant is, ANY president will ultimately have little or nothing to say in any accommodation of North Korean demand for a sense of security in the face of the USA’s track record (e.g. Libya) short of sea change in the influences surrounding him or that is the ‘players’ representing the national security apparatus (read military-industrial complex.) Rather the approach should be, to challenge (confront) the Trumanite network in open and straightforward way, demanding peace overtures from the American side be sincere, materially reciprocal and binding in practical application.

There’s a war coming‘: Marine Corps commandant tells troops to be ready for a ‘big-ass fight’ as US military planners say next conflict could be against Russia or North Korea

In the age of nuclear weapons, this preceding  goes to a paramount oxymoron of European cultural thought:

“I refer to the maxim that is one of the axiomatic norms of cybernetic society: “something ought to be done because it is technically possible to do it.” If it is possible to build nuclear weapons, they must be built even if they might destroy us all. If it is possible to travel to the moon or to the planets, it must be done, even if at the expense of many unfulfilled needs here on earth. This principle means the negation of all humanistic values, but it nevertheless represents a value, maybe the supreme norm of “technotronic” society” –Fromm, Erich, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness

By the same logic, in the liberal democracies, if you have nukes and rationale can be constructed to use them, e.g. ‘they have them too and they’re not rational [read European mentality] like we are’ you’ve mentally prepared yourselves to use them, because ‘it is technically possible’ to survive them, irrespective of whether you will survive them or not.

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime” -Thomas Paine

Let us, for moment’s contrast sake, then have a look at non-European thinking from a century ago:

“In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying: “There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ‘scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry.” -Vine Deloria, Evolution, Creationism, and Other Modern Myths

The two tribal groups spokesmen replied to Harry Boise, following discussion among themselves:

”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress, unless Manitoo by his spirit, guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable” -Rising Sun, Turtle Mountain Chippewa

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light” -Red Tomahawk, Standing Rock Sioux

Then, in our own 21st Century’s western science, an irreconcilable contradiction of fact is noted:

“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

In other words, the present day Platonic/Cartesian philosophy or ‘objectivity’ underlying western science and its exploitation of “the knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us” is a misapprehension of reality according to experiments carried out by that very same western science. Yet, this is ignored by western science, as if the experiments had never been carried out and the contradiction didn’t exist.

Why? Well, try this next:

“It is the myth of scientific objectivity that allows Europeans [includes European culture established by colonialism, notably USA] to speak for all of us” -Marimba Ani, in her seminal critique of European mentality “Yurugu”

If the myth is culturally indestructible, here is the likely, upcoming fruit of necessarily ignoring the contradiction, to uphold the myth:

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all” -General James ‘mad dog’ Mattis

Note the contradiction in General Mattis’ preceding statement, indicating he’s holding several hundreds (or thousands) of kilotons of nuclear explosion(s) behind his back as he approaches his adversary with ‘peace.’ This is result of a culture that is incompatible with its pretensions, a culture of practical (or practicing) hypocrites. Bombing North Korea will easily draw in Russia and China. Altogether aside from Korea, our presently pumping offensive weapons into Ukraine could bring Russia on in a ‘stands alone’ NATO fight.

Now, consider we have 4, four star Marine Corps generals, that is Trump’s Chief of Staff General ‘ass-hat’ Kelly, Trump’s Secretary of Defense General ‘mad-dog’ Mattis, Trump’s Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Dumbford and Trump’s Marine Corps Commandant General ‘big-ass’ Neller at the reins of a USA ‘defense’ establishment… none of which have lifted a finger to clean up the rampant, literal Armageddon believing, hyper-extreme Christian fundamentalists running not only the Pentagon, but every major branch of every American military department. The investigative watchdog group Military Religious Freedom Foundation calls these people “The Christian Taliban.” Meanwhile, you can take in your illegal (constitutionally impermissible) Pentagon Bible study HERE.

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

So, other than our politicians’ lies and related media fantasies, what is the main handicap stands in the way of everyday people waking up to this rapidly approaching reality before it is too late? It is probably this one:

“Their judgment was based more upon blind wishing than upon any sound pre-vision; for it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy” -Thucydides

Put into modern terms (western intelligentsia, particularly, appear to fall prey to this)…

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief” -Frantz Fannon

This preceding could also called ethnocentric bias, or the European mentality’s cultural narcissism. Now, when the Platonic-Cartesian mentalities are too ? (reader’s choice) socially stupid, uneducated-ignorant, conflicted, distracted, vain, intimidated, biased, or (mostly) culturally incapable of seeing where this is all headed, when there’s 7 billion dead, it’ll be a bit late to sort new reality parameters, you think?

This brings us back to an ‘illiterate savage’ lecturing the Yale science graduate with this precise language…

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light”

…the thing with this is, the western science still (to this day) continues to believe they are superior, but perhaps even more importantly (just now) is, the western monotheism has utterly failed the last sentence of the preceding (italicized) paragraph, recalling:

Ron’s Conspiracy Theory

It would appear quite possible that groups of people create collective realities seeming unconsciously, and cause via their collective belief, events to take on what would appear to be an ‘unconscious’ but in reality is a ‘super-conscious’ intelligence that is organized, functions as though it were managed by individuals (even when it is not) and the result is, we can read into those events as though they were managed in a sense they actually are not.

This collective ‘meme’ can explain what is called in the biblical sense ‘principalities of darkness’ or that is to say a ‘spirit of evil’ managing events in a sense of both conspiracy and superstition.

There is quite a bit of ‘coincidental incidence’ in our world indicating peoples of the western culture are creating reality quite independent of self-aware thought and, to a rational observer, it could seem almost certainly by design when in fact this is not necessarily the case. Such would explain a belief in Illuminati when in fact it did not exist in any individual self conscious or ego-aware organized form but nevertheless manifest as an observable phenomena of symptoms or consequence derived from a collective super-conscious phenomenon.

A conclusion could  be there is a ‘super awareness’ of the group causes what appear ingenious evils of conspiracy when in fact there is no one individual or group of managers within the group capable of implementing these designs which, nonetheless in actuality, are perceived. To accomplish reality of evil would only require evil ideas as cultural drivers; example given Original Sin and the devastation visited upon our world’s women, the greatest and ongoing holocaust among holocausts.

The natural progression to end result would be, when a large portion of an aggressive society collectively believes in Armageddon as an archetype, all of the necessary players will naturally manifest in a super-conscious organized format empowered to bring it off, where no one individual or group of individuals or players could effect this by individual or personal volition; nevertheless the super-consciousness of the event’s initiating group insures creation of this reality for the collective whole.

Have you looked at the apocalyptic ‘good versus evil’ fables driving our world’s several fundamentalist religions’ reality recently? If cosmology is the effective driver of what appears to be pointed to inevitable catastrophic outcome, better to change fables, you think? Now, just how do you suppose this could be accomplished? As things stand,  we’re all little more than an extinction event waiting to happen. All of us.

The Oath & The Trash Bin

 

dotard |ˈdōtərd|
noun
an old person, especially one who has become senile.
ORIGIN late Middle English: from dote + -ard.

The experts: “It can reach Washington DC”

President Dotard: “We will handle it”

The experts: No, we won’t (read on)

With North Korea’s latest Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) launch, at night, from a mobile system, in emergency meeting over at the Department of State’s Office of Religious and Global Affairs, black humor is ruling ruining the day:

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Dumbford: When is admission to Heaven allowed according  to scripture?

Mike Pence: One a-penny, two a-penny, three a-penny, four. With the embrace of prosperity gospel. I’m worth pence because Jesus loves me, it’s Soros has to pass with his camels through the eye of the needle.

Callista Gingrich: When you’ve lit a candle while watching vintage NFL, of Roger Staubach’s greatest Hail Mary, very intimately, with daddy.

Rabbi Levi Shemtov: Admission to Heaven happens when the kids are grown, out of the house and the dog is dead.

Of course, if President Dotard blinks first, in this game of nuclear chicken, and treats our allies like it was Radio Free Europe and Hungary, 1956, when South Korea and Japan feel compelled to take on North Korea, at USA’s urging, Uncle Sam will let our ‘allies’ know the real score:

But if our Christian Taliban at the Pentagon were to be ‘tempted’ to ‘convert’ the war games, pushed in North Korea’s face, into actual attack, well, that’s about what you’d expect from knuckle dragging:

‘Knuckle Dragging’

One wonders if Kim Jong Un is posing for James Mattis, as in a mocking pose along the lines of ‘hey, Mattis, look at us knuckle draggers, we’ve just popped a hydrogen bomb, and successfully tested a missile with multiple independent re-entry vehicles, how do you like those bananas’?

Now, why will I pick on Secretary of Defense, General Mattis, and his military cohorts, as opposed to Trump? Well, because of JRR Tolkien, and his character ‘Wormtongue’ whispering lies to the King of Rohan; and the fact the USA is no longer a Republic but a theocratic monarchy along the lines of the biblical kings, with an usurper on the throne.

To kick off our story,  Wormtongue, er, that is James Mattis and his generals, are a very big liars. This is evident in his Pentagon insisting the USA can intercept any nuclear armed  missile ‘rocket boy’ can toss at Guam, Alaska, Hawaii, or for that matter, Chicago. Did Mattis personally say that? No, that line of horseshit, following on the  Pentagon, is more recently coming from the Department of State. But in the USA’s system of jurisprudence, our Department of Defense’s chief philosopher, that is Mattis, is guilty of practicing a ‘lie by omission’ because:

“No, we won’t,” counter military experts to claims by the Pentagon that the US may launch and intercept any missiles launched by the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK).

“The United States will have a hard time trying to shoot down DPRK nuclear missiles, a point of view shared by Joe Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation specializing in nuclear weapons, and Kingston Reif, director of Disarmament and Threat Reduction policy at the nonpartisan Arms Control Association.

“According to both experts, the United States touts its layered missile defense systems, even though almost none are capable of intercepting an ICBM.

“When Pyongyang shot a missile over Japan, it flew high enough that no US system would be able to reach it, Cirincione wrote in a report for Defense One.

“The key word here is ‘over.’ Like way over,” Cirincione wrote. “Like 770 kilometers (475 miles) over Japan at the apogee of its flight path. Neither Japan nor the United States could have intercepted the missile. None of the theater ballistic missile defense weapons in existence can reach that high”

“The US missile defense consists of three layers, including the Patriot, THAAD and the Aegis systems.

“According to Cirincione, currently the United States has a “50-50 chance” of hitting a missile similar to North Korea’s Hwasong-14 while the missile is in flight. And those results are only possible if the DPRK used zero countermeasures, such as decoys (some as simple as a balloon), electronic jammers and chaff.

“The only system designed to defend the US homeland, known as the [GMD], has suffered from numerous technical and engineering problems, and testing in controlled conditions has not demonstrated that it can provide a reliable defense against even a small number of unsophisticated ICBMs,” Reif said.

“The success rate of the GMD systems in flight intercept tests has been dismal,” Cirincione quoted Philip Coyle, former director of operational testing for the Pentagon, as saying”

So, as Wormtongue, er, that is Mattis, practices the lie of omission on the very NOT sovereign American people of our theocratic monarchy, his lieutenant H.R. McMaster…

…takes his primate’s display of aggression public with:

“The U.S. has gamed out four or five different scenarios for how the crisis with North Korea will be resolved, and “some are uglier than others,” National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said as tensions remain high between the two countries.

“…McMaster said the threat from Pyongyang is “much further advanced” than anticipated and the Pentagon said the president has a “deep arsenal” to draw upon…”

What is interesting here is, the freaked out chimp McMaster stating ‘much further advanced’ than anticipated. Now, it stands to reason, if you’ve been caught with your pants down and just figured out North Korea not only has the H-bomb, but the means to deliver it, AND, YOU DON’T HAVE THE MEANS TO PREVENT DELIVERY, you shouldn’t be behaving like a freaked out chimp in aggression mode. But that’s what ‘McMaster’ can’t ‘master’ … he can’t seem to lay his hands on that 1% of DNA that differentiates chimps from humans.

And insofar as the recent ‘intelligence’ fed the western press by South Korea’s spy agency, the idea North Korea couldn’t see the USA’s ‘stealth’ B-1 bomber, well, that’s likely a fantasy because North Korea has a reasonably up-to-date (via China) cloned or home-grown surface to air system based on the Russian S-300 and that system profiles like this:

The S-300VM (“Antey-2500”) (SA-23 Gladiator\Giant) mobile multichannel ADMS is designed to destroy current and future tactical and strategic aircrafts (including those using Stealth Technology), medium-range ballistic missiles, theater, tactical, air ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as radar surveillance and guidance aircrafts, reconnaissance and attack systems and patrolling jamming stations

Now, there is some argument as to whether the S-300 can accurately hit the stealth technology aircraft, but they should be able to see the stealth fighters. And even if they couldn’t see a stealth bomber arriving, North Korea would know to initiate a nuclear launch from the first arriving attack on it’s air defense stations or other installations, as it is hardly reasonable to expect solo stealth bombers (any stealth fighter escorts would be detected for the fact they have a higher radar profile) except in case of a USA initiated ‘preemptive’ surprise nuclear 1st strike; which is likely the only ‘gamed’ scenario the troglodytes at the Pentagon can deceive themselves into believing stands a chance at preventing any North Korea nuke(s) heading towards their (soon to be demonstrated as failed) anti-ballistic missile shield in the event of war.

Now, about that usurper sitting on the throne…

…of our theocratic monarchy; rather than distance himself from ‘judge’ Moore who believes the USA is a Christian theocracy and our constitution says so (see liarsforjesus.com), King Dump has embraced his former ‘butt-buddy‘ Bannon’s choice for Senator from Alabama. Now, what this has to do with an United States military shoving unwanted Bible studies and prayers down the throats of its’ soldiers, sailors and airmen, has a lot to with a national ego sustained by just that: prayer. In the case of stopping Kim Jong Un’s nukes falling on us, probably the adage ‘nothing fails like prayer’ is most apropos to describe what happens next:

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

With American posture of military supremacy literally based on a rhetoric of aggression, in this case more or less backed solely by prayers, I think we all can know who the supreme knuckle dragger is:

^ USA Secretary of Defense: General James Mattis

Kim Jong Un is calling Trump and his Generals’ bluff. Then what?

Do the world’s biggest egos back down and get their (ongoing for decades) hyper-aggressive war games out of North Korea’s face? Maybe they can’t. Because if they do, the whole illusion of their empire’s invincibility falls apart. And if they don’t … ?

Meanwhile, over at the CIA…

“In the intelligence community, we see supervisors wanting to hold Bible studies during duty hours”

Yeah, that might work, analyzing how marching in circles around Jericho, blowing horns, could be the model for bringing down Kim Jong Un:

^ at Langley, Virginia, an operation planning session

Kim Jong Un versus The Generals

‘Knuckle Dragging’

This is information I’d initially sent to approximately 150 persons including federal legislators of four NATO nations, inclusive of German Parliament members. Subsequently I’ve forwarded this on to 298 (mostly women) members of the European Union Parliament. Why women? Because I’ve found the male politicians here in Europe (Germany particularly) to be crass cowards. Perhaps we will see the issue gain some traction in the coming weeks and months (one can always hope)

Dear Member of Parliament

I wished to provide you with informed information relating the United States Department of Defense. As you may know, the National Security Agency is under Department of Defense authority and is staffed by, and coordinates with, military personnel and Pentagon programs. In this case it is important you be made aware of facts which have not (to now) been associated with the National Security Agency as regards the Snowden revelations. It has been established by professionals in the fields of law and intelligence that radical American Exceptionalism in the form of religious extremism has more than a large influence at the Pentagon. No less than a former White House attorney, Mikey Weinstein, who’d served as an officer in the United States Air Force has established facts of a far right Christian extremism overtaken the top positions controlling the USA’s military. To fully understand what is happening at the National Security Agency, one must be informed to the facts at the Pentagon.

As a former United States military intelligence professional, I have collaborated with Mikey Weinstein (of the five time Nobel Peace Prize nominated organization Military Religious Freedom Foundation) when developing the information presented (below.) I believe very strongly the members of the European Parliament becoming informed of these facts is in the  best interests of humanity as a whole.

Sincerely

Ronald Thomas West

 

Of Nukes, Courage and Cowardice

I have been acquainted with Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation since June of 2008. A quick look into my mail program shows thousands of communications between myself, Mikey and his five times Nobel Peace Prize nominated organization. We have made common cause over these past several years, sharing enemies and challenges. What I admire most about Mikey is his ability to set aside differences and focus on where collaboration will serve the common good. And his infinite courage and dedication to defeating a dark evil while facing tall odds.

As courageous as Mikey is, the enemy we face is doubly dangerous because it is a lethally armed cowardice. When the ‘American Exceptionalism’ comes to a belief at the top levers of power, a drone launched Hellfire missile on one side of the planet, by a video game geek in uniform on the other side of the planet, ‘serves the purpose of the Lord’, it is more than fair to question what it is we are doing as a nation, it is actually a necessity to CHALLENGE the underlying motive of what has become, as Mikey straight-forwardly says, “A weaponized gospel of Jesus Christ.”

There was a brilliant novel, ‘Watership Down’, which portrayed a scene in which a Rabbit colony lived in denial of snares set throughout their warren. This peculiar form of cowardice is not unique. We have our folk wisdom underscoring this behavioral  phenomena, for instance ‘the elephant in the living room’ no one will discuss. We have arrived there as a society, when our leadership and media will have no part of any discussion pointing to our own religious criminal elements responsible for reprehensible acts for which the most severe punishments should be meted out in any society under a functioning rule of law. 

Mikey Weinstein could no doubt list hundreds (probably  thousands) of punishable offenses under existing law that have gone unpunished in the United States military since his foundation had been established (2006.) These offenses are tolerated in the lower ranks because they do NOT offend the sensibilities of commanders at the very top ranks. I am speaking of the fanatic Christians that rule the greater military from the Pentagon, our nation’s top officers. In 2013, Mikey defends 34,000 mostly lower rank (soldiers, airmen and sailor clients) military from hate crimes by extremist Christians in uniform. This would be unnecessary except for the bigots running the Pentagon.

Here is the text of a recent, unedited hate mail, personally forward to myself by Mikey:

“I am a proud Christian living and spreading The Word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ here in Tulsa. Me and my wife came to listen to the devil’s own MikieWienstein at the All Soul’s unitarian church here last saturday. Our pastor told us the next day at Sunday Service that this so called “church” should be renamed as “All Soul’s Going To Hell” for 2 reasons. First it invited one of the greatest enemys of Christ wienstein to even speak here in Tulsa in the first place. Second becausenoone at that “church” has been saved by the blood of the Lamb Jesus Christ. And they all then will burn in the Lake of Fire for they rejection of our Savior. We listened to mikie Wienstein speak his evil words against allowing Christ to impower our U.S. army soldiers. We watched the jews face. We could not help but notice his face. Being a cunning jew he has a shrewd jew face to begin with to confuse the people. But the spirit on that dark face of his could only be of the Dark One himself satan. It was so obvious. It gave my wife and me chils to behold his demonism. My wife wanted to ask him a question at the microphone about him being of satan. But his evil glare from his dark father the fallen angel satan kept her from the strength to do so. And it was useless anyway. As all the others there will burnerternally in hell with that jew of satan. And he had to bring his big nigra guards with him for protection? He has no protection from The Way,The Truth and The Life of Jesus. Mikie should no that there is no protection from those who kiss the lips of satan. And reject the free gift of the love of Christ. He gets what is coming for him from the warriors of the Savior. It is only a matter of time now.”

The most influential thing encouraging this pervasive, vile and bigoted hate, is the refusal of the Pentagon to step up and meet the bigotry this mail fairly represents in our military. Why they do nothing is, because this is the prevailing belief at the Pentagon as well.

Our Pentagon poster child for this vile expression of American Exceptionalism degenerated to religious motivated hate, and the lesson of the Rabbit warren in denial, is David A Patraeus. The cover story is General Patraeus resigned from the CIA over marital infidelity. In fact, a major British mainstream newspaper, The Guardian, was putting the finishing touches on a documentary film tying General Patraeus to black site torture centers and death squads in Iraq. It would never do to have a sitting Director of the CIA implicated for international crimes in our national press if the New York Times or Washington Post were to pick this story up and run with it. True to the principle of ignoring the ‘elephant in the living room’, American mainstream media sucked up to Obama’s ‘look forward, not back’ policy and did not run the Guardian exposé implicating not only Patraeus but also Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

General Patraues ties with extreme Christian fundamentalism at the Pentagon  has been established by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. He had endorsed extreme literature (“a copy should be in every soldier’s rucksack”), and under General Patraeus command, not only having a ‘weaponized gospel of Jesus’ shoved down soldiers throats had been tolerated, but pervasive sexual assault, and murder of women soldiers as well (according to the informed assertions of Colonel Ann Wright.) If you are familiar with extreme Christian theology, women are not really that cool, women being responsible for everything gone wrong in this world since ‘The Fall.’ Last year there were 26,000 sexual assaults in the United States military, up from 19,000 the year before. Almost no one is punished. See anything wrong with this picture? Who has had an office in the Pentagon for years? General Patraeus’ favored “Officers Christian Fellowship”, a 20,000 member fundamentalist Christian military organization that views our armed forces as a crusader force; and whose senior members were put on a fast track to promotion for 8 years under the Evangelical Bush. The result is, men who believe woman are inferior and Muslims are the children of Satan are running the Pentagon, controlling the triggers from half a world away, sending Hellfire missiles into homes where they ‘suspect’ a militant might be. Are these really the people you’d like to see keeping custody of the world’s largest nuclear arsenal?

And speaking of nukes, we have a rabidly evangelical command structure in the United States Air Force where most of those nukes are held. Aside altogether from the ‘strategic’ inter-continental ballistic missile, the Air Force has custody of enough ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons that can be dropped from planes, to ignite any region of the world in flames, leaving little more than ash. Those ‘tactical’ weapons are not necessarily ‘secure’ when you can easily assemble flight crews who believe (like their superiors at the Pentagon) in literal Armageddon.

A mainstream media in the United States which refuses to report on war crimes tied to General Patraeus in Iraq, as documented by The Guardian, is certainly not to be trusted to report the fact the United States military has become, in and of itself, a world threatening entity. The information is there, they know the facts and the facts do not go to press. One of Mikey Weinstein’s great concerns is Christian fanatics having custody of America’s nuclear arsenal. I agree. What are the New York Times and Washington Post thinking? That Obama’s generals will turn themselves in and confess the facts? Or has the media decided it’s too ‘inconvenient’ for a Commander-in-Chief (Obama) to be bothered during a time of war with the small detail his generals are the 21st Century equivalent of NAZI field marshals, who likely share a beer in pure joy every time one of the hate mails directed at Weinstein is made public and nothing is done.

On this side of the pond (I am in Germany), my endeavor has been to raise awareness in our NATO allies, just how dangerous an entity the USA has become, if only it is plain there is little political will at top levers of power in the USA to confront what is pointed to an out of control circumstance threatening our world. The hate mail quoted in this letter is one of many I have forwarded to German politicians and I must say the cowardice I’ve encountered  here is indeed great. How do I know this? I have all of the training and resources needed to determine the Federal Republic of Germany has been made fully aware, at the top tier of power, of the circumstance as detailed in the preceding. After all, the facts as presented are a NATO issue. To be certain I got their attention, I filed a complaint against Germany in the International Criminal Court for aiding and abetting the USA in war crimes. It would appear the body politic here, is simply in the pocket of the USA (Merkel) or has it’s tail between its legs (everyone else.)

Will Mikey give up? Never. Nor will I, because something has to give before this thing ends us all, simply stated. This is for our future generations.

On 30 September 2013, I sent this assessment in letter form to 298 (mostly women) members of the European Union Parliament. Why the women? Because the male politicians here in Europe (Germany particularly) have shown themselves to be rank cowards. Let’s hope the women will give this issue a bit of traction in the coming weeks and months-

I have been acquainted with Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation since June of 2008. A quick look into my mail program shows thousands of communications between myself, Mikey and his five times Nobel Peace Prize nominated organization. We have made common cause over these past several years, sharing enemies and challenges. What I admire most about Mikey is his ability to set aside differences and focus on where collaboration will serve the common good. And his infinite courage and dedication to defeating a dark evil while facing tall odds.

As courageous as Mikey is, the enemy we face is doubly dangerous because it is a lethally armed cowardice. When the ‘American Exceptionalism’ comes to a belief at the top levers of power, a drone launched Hellfire missile on one side of the planet, by a video game geek in uniform on the other side of the planet, ‘serves the purpose of the Lord’, it is more than fair to question what it is we are doing as a nation, it is actually a necessity to CHALLENGE the underlying motive of what has become, as Mikey straight-forwardly says, “A weaponized gospel of Jesus Christ.”

There was a brilliant novel, ‘Watership Down’, which portrayed a scene in which a Rabbit colony lived in denial of snares set throughout their warren. This peculiar form of cowardice is not unique. We have our folk wisdom underscoring this behavioral  phenomena, for instance ‘the elephant in the living room’ no one will discuss. We have arrived there as a society, when our leadership and media will have no part of any discussion pointing to our own religious criminal elements responsible for reprehensible acts for which the most severe punishments should be meted out in any society under a functioning rule of law.  

Mikey Weinstein could no doubt list hundreds (probably  thousands) of punishable offenses under existing law that have gone unpunished in the United States military since his foundation had been established (2006.) These offenses are tolerated in the lower ranks because they do NOT offend the sensibilities of commanders at the very top ranks.

Within a few days of my penning this article, it had been revealed an American televangelist who’d called for a military coup and martial law in the USA has a direct conduit into the Pentagon.
