. . . we should look more closely at what the nature of business is, because I don't think Armand Hammer [a Jew] was alone in using the techniques of bribery and things that you wouldn't speak about in public [gross deception, conspiracy, amorality, etc.] to achieve an economic purpose. I think that he might be much more representative of a kind of business, especially a business that depends on government favor and government concession.
. . . this [Nuremberg Trial] staff is about 75% Jewish . . . the charge 'a war for the Jews' is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again.

This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] is well-placed to explain to the U.S. Congress the alleged danger of a nuclear Iran. After all, it was Israel and its allies in Washington who fabricated this issue to begin with.
There are millions of Christians in America’s churches that couldn’t tell you what’s in the Bible to save their lives. They couldn’t quote the Ten Commandments; they couldn’t quote the Golden Rule; they couldn’t name Christ’s apostles; they couldn’t quote five verses of Scripture from memory if their lives depended on it.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s factually impoverished testimony on Obamacare [before the House] didn’t get nearly the attention it should have, as congressional Democrats cleverly decided to release a report on CIA torture abuses on the same day.

The Israel lobby is one of the most powerful and influential lobbies, with far-reaching consequences on American foreign policy and relations. Two intrepid professors, John J. Mearsheimer, University of Chicago, Dept. of Political Science, and John M. Walt, Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government, undertook to analyze the Israel lobby’s effect on America and its political process. Their report touched off an uproar and they have suffered insults to their scholarship along with charges of anti-Semitism. None of which surprised them.
