Stories from the Hill.

A bunch of stories from the hill. Starbucks with a BG, eating self-collected fruits for 3 weeks with my WO, life and all. Nothing too exciting like the Nam-era boys here (hello anathema, and hats off to all of you), just normal base-stories of a dude with time to serve.

After marching on a rainy parade ground one evening to get a butter bar pinned on my shoulders, I was quickly and quietly shooed off to a small-ish camp on a small hill to serve out the rest of my time. Nice place.
(Disclaimer: this is a country undergoing peacetime ops. No wartime deployments.)

"You got lucky. That's where all the decent old officers and warrants go. Life is slow on that hill. Welcome to paradise, LT."

I'd spent a few months on this small base mucking in with my men (about 20+ security platoon privates and ncos on shifts) and with the small HQ unit that was based there (I became the USO). Mostly officers and a few warrants. The sort who were great and decent people who had gotten a break from airbase life, but most of them were also the sort who knew they wouldn't end up progressing any further up the chain. Nobody had to fight here for rank. So politics was pretty much non-existent, and everyone was a good buddy. You'd walk around the main building and know everyone's name. The O-5 knew most of the E-1's (in the HR department) by name, and this was pretty common. Background. Sometimes you'd have E-5's hanging out with O-2's, shooting the shit at the small canteen we had. In a cliched way, the base felt like a real family that those advertisements at bus stops keep showing you. Rank was just for getting the job done. Everything else was social. People were human. Everyone had their shit to do, got it done by 530, and buggered off. (I remember on one instance a O-3 was benchpress-supporting a E-5 that he didn't know in our small gym. On another instance, people usually came back from lunch breaks with extra snacks that they'd give out to random people in the hallway.) Nobody kept anybody back later than they had to.

1. I Met My Base Commander For the First Time While Harvesting Fruits
Ok, is this real life? Ha. Anyway.
Hit it off as pretty good friends with an old, frizzled WO. Let's call him WO Mike. He had three kids, loved soccer clubs and had a dart board at his desk. Even though he was about 25 years older than me, we connected instantly over some random conversation about the ideal coffee mixture and how efficient Bangkok street food vendors are ... tangent. Anyway, we developed a fast friendship over shared ideas of what moral efficiency looks like and how Suzuki Swifts make great long term investments.

One day, we were having coffee at his desk when he mentioned to me pretty casually, "we've got a whole bunch of durian trees outside this camp. They haven't been touched in years. Back in my day we used to head out and chop it down and spend 3 weeks in the office finishing all the fruits we found." He kinda pulled that old man grin, yknow, reminiscing about past times.

A durian is: an expensive fruit that smells like dried shit in a shoe. But it's freakin delicious. And also sells at $30-50USD a kilo depending on quality. Each fruit is about 3+ kilos.

And so I quipped - "why not do it again?"

WO Mike reached under his office desk and took out a curved jungle knife about as long as my entire arm from shoulder to knuckle. It had rust and animal blood and was sheaved inside a leather casing that looked like it came from the 1950s when the British still wore khaki shorts. I had no idea how he managed to fit a khukri-like knife underneath his CPU next to files on HR procurements ... trust the WO to do that.

We walked out of the office building, and opened the exterior fence up and walked into the deep jungle - note that Durian trees are usually 2-3 stories high. A few of my off-duty (resting) security troopers saw us, got excited and asked if they could come along. So I pulled out some black trash bags, passed it to them to carry, and all of us trooped into the forest. I left an E-2 behind at the fence as a look out. The whole forest is filled from ground to head-level height with dense, thorny, highly annoying undergrowth. We take out our knifes and start slashing.

We're barely trekking into a goldmine of durians (they hang by the dozen on trees) when I hear a shout.

"LT Lolzoerator! Someone's looking for you!" It's my E-2 shouting from about 20 metres away. Dense shrub and thorny undergrowth, so I slowly take my jungle knife and carve a path back.

"What's up?" I ask, my body slowly entering in view of the perimeter of the fence.

I see two figures in uniform standing on the base-side of the fence, and my E-2 staring at me with the most confused face.

I look closer at the chest of the two unknown figures. Eh. One guy was a full bird. The other was a CSM. Then it hit me.
The dude talking to my E-2 was the Base Commander, and the other was the Base CSM.

And ... so your kind-of-fresh 2LT USO soaked in tropical sweat carrying an arm-long jungle knife walked up and met the Base Commander for the first time. CSM stares at my uniform.

"LT, you managing this operation? Are there more men inside? What are you doing with that?"

Honest, freaked out a little. He looked like a nice man, but was a fighter pilot before and was a mean war machine. Wasn't sure whether to call it an operation, but I told him that we had a good tip that there were durians inside the jungle and it was the season to harvest. CSM asks me if I have a safety belt. I say yes, and he nods. Base Commander pauses for a second, and then looks and replies with:

"Make sure you bring back enough for everybody."

And with that, he and the CSM walk off, leaving me and the E-2 looking at each other with a sort of funny relief. I laughed. He laughed.

Needless to say, we brought back 3 large black trashbags full. Everybody had enough for the next week to go around the camp. My security guys ate so much that they shat it out for a whole week after.

2. The E-8 Coffee Club (with one 20 year old 2LT)
(ah, I'll finish this story up next time. A bunch of old men telling stories with me inbetween.)

3. Coffee with the 1-Star
Had a really cool new Base Commander come in - he was a debater back in junior college, did computer science at Brown/Berk (i can't rmb) and Masters in IR in one of the Ivys. From the get go he was an insanely self-aware man. He'd sit down with randoms in the canteen and chat about anything under the sun - family, Bitcoin, politics and what-have-you. The sort of real field-grade officer that folks need nowadays. He was a 37 year old one-star general ... very, very rare. Let's call him BG Joe.

In my last few months before my transition to civilian life, I saw him around the base every now and then, and he sat down with me for two lunches and we talked about public speaking and his life as a permanent resident becoming a 37-year high flyer. Really, really humble dude. I gave a presentation about blockchain to the whole camp once as part of my cyber-security briefings, and he popped in for a visit and sat at the back too.

Anyway. The day I get posted back to civilian life, I'm in camp in my civilian clothes (polo and jeans) sorting out my administrative documents to get me out of the armed forces. Saying goodbye and all that. Went to the canteen with some of my guys to get chow.

So BG Joe walks into the canteen and sees me wearing civilian. Walks up to me.

"LT, you going out of unit?"

I smile and respond with something like sir I finished my time and now it's off to school for me.

"Are you free? Let's get coffee!" He promptly walks off to the next table after someone waves him over to say hello.

At this point I'm slightly stunned - we had surprise lunches and all, but coffee?! I said sure sir and well ... okay. I walked over to the coffee flasks and poured out a black for him. Put some sugar on the side. Two packets. Just in case. Brought it back to a table - two cups. And waited for him to finish his conversation. And thought about what I was going to chat about.

He walks back after he's done. "LT lolzoerator, I didn't mean this sort of coffee. The coffee here is terrible. \chuckles* Let's go out and get some."*

At this point I pull off my most professional "yes sir" laugh and slightly stunned, walk out with him to his Jag where we drive out of camp. "Where's the nearest starbucks?"

I ended up at the nearest Sarbucks for an hour with BG Joe. Talking about family, navigating university and the future of coding on senior officers (who for some reason are very inefficient in using pen and paper all the time). I got his facebook, he shook my hand, thanked me for my service, and drove me back.

10/10 base commander.

4. How I pushed one of the rare NCOs in my country to make OCS.
It doesn't really happen in my country at all. If you're on the NCO track, you really can't convert - simple as that. Officers get chosen at basic training and because every male goes through military service, you can't sign on as an officer when you're 26 unless you went through OCS when you were 18. And so many don't go through OCS. Rare when it happens, but when it happens, you know the candidates are damned good leaders.

Anyway. Got a highly motivated trooper. CPL Mish. He used to stay back after his guard duty to keep the other sentries company. When I was away, he set the guardroom in order, got everyone disciplined and made sure superiors didn't have anything to call shit. When audits came, he was the guy I trusted to get the guys to clean up their act. CPL Mish was so good, that I put in a recommendation for Corporal First Class and he got it. CFC Mish was hands down, one of the most intelligent guys I'd ever met. Read Socrates, The Illiad and knew his Thoreau. We used to take walks around base talking about geo-political conflicts and he'd tell me about his times overseas dealing with marginalised communities. Ah ... the weirdness of conscripted life.

He didn't make it to OCS because of a system glitch when he was in Basic. And so I quizzed him more about his life over the year we had together, and in my eyes he would make the perfect, solid leader which his rank and vocation didn't allow him to fully maximise. Slowly put him in more command positions and he grew into a solid and respected guy amongst our men.

One day we were talking and I brought up the idea of command school. Why not try? I asked him. He said he would love to sign on as an officer, if he had the chance. Why not. So we started finding all the people we could and all the power we could to bring this plan into motion.

Our base, as a HQ, had quite a few high-flying fellas come in. And CFC Mish would do gate security checks for them, would see them out, would sign their guests in etc. And so CFC Mish did a great job at what he did. And the officers noticed. And so every time one of them stopped by, I would tell them about CFC Mish's predicament - that the glitched caused him to not be able to go to OCS, that he was a humble and good man, and that he wanted to sign on as a regular soldier. These officers would nod their heads, agree with me, and then I'd ask them to write a testimonial based on what they'd seen Mish do so far.
I was surprised at the response, at how many officers and superiors pitched in. Most people say yes, and then promptly forget what they promised. But these Majors/Lieutenant Colonels didn't, at all. They wrote in. Soon we had a whole stack of about 15-20 recommendations from some of the best pilots/anti-aircraft officers around.

We sent the packet in, and waited for 3 months. No reply. I was about to post out back to civilian life. FInally, he gets a response. An interview. We cross our fingers. He goes in for 3 interviews, and he's told that as the first NCO to be selected for an interview to OCS, they had to be strict on him.

Last I heard, he was a midshipman cadet in training, 2 months away from getting his 2nd Lieutenant. I smile. Good on him.

5. Misc Stories.
- Once laced one of my guy's meal with so much curry powder that he shat himself multiple times during a guard duty shift during an explosive gas relief
- Caught a monkey stealing our food, made it our pet for two days by taming and domesticating it, calling it Tom and then releasing it back as a warning to the rest of the 23432423940 monkeys watching our base.
- Requested internet access for the guardroom, got a $200,000 quotation, promptly forwarded it up to the Base Commander and we laughed at the next lunch at how much money army contractors were making doing this shit
- We used to have saturday dinners in camp. I didn't need to stay over the weekend, but one of my guys had a shift that was on saturday night and so we'd order in so much Indian food that all the base toilets would clog up and we'd tell the cleaners that it was the HR's department fault, so much so that they got a hygiene warning
- Got to tackle a full bird colonel to the ground during a base-security assessment (he was attempting to enter the base under false disguise as a test)

Yeah. I'm sitting here in my law school library taking a break from all this finals theory to remember the good times. Then I remember 60% was pretty shit and the rest of the time was spent waiting for something to happen. But you make of what you make. And I think I made it worthwhile for myself, and hopefully my guys.
I got a text from one of my guys the other day telling me he made it into the engineering course of a great uni that he'd been eyeing ever since he'd been under my command at that base. I used to walk out to the sentry post where he was on guard duty and we'd spend hours talking about technical development, blockchain engineering, passions. He wasn't confident at all then so I'd bring out books like The Road to Character and 7 Habits and we'd read it together while he stood there at gate duty around 10pm at night. We worked on his admissions essay together at 3 in the morning a year ago.
I think there are few things more satisfying than seeing someone coming out of the force, and knowing that you did something small to help him get there. We're all human, and I got some pretty great mentoring in the force too.

The True Goal of the Real Elites and How They Connect to Trump, Putin and Israel: The Chabad & Kabbalism

With all of my research I have done, I have come to conclude that the end game for all of this NWO stuff, is Transhumanism. Which will result in the complete annihilation of the human species in one way or another.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transhumanism
You can read about their official stances here.
https://ascensionglossary.com/index.php/Transhumanism
And the why I think this is so dangerous here.
Youtube - Most People Don't Even Realize What's Coming
This video illustrates how this is all coming to fruition. And notice a certain world leader that has been accused of meddling and interfering with other countries elections and what he has to say about this stuff.
Who Vladimir Putin thinks will rule the world
Speaking to students during a national "open lesson" from the city of Yaroslavl, northeast of Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country that takes the lead in the sphere of computer-based artificial intelligence (AI) will rule. "Artificial intelligence is the future not only of Russia but of all of mankind," said Putin. "There are huge opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to foresee today."
"Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world," he said
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cosmism
Russian cosmism is a philosophical and cultural movement that emerged in Russia in the early 20th century. It entailed a broad theory of natural philosophy, combining elements of religion and ethics with a history and philosophy of the origin, evolution and future existence of the cosmos and humankind. It combined elements from both Eastern and Western philosophic traditions as well as from the Russian Orthodox Church.
Cosmism was one of the influences on Proletkult, and after the October Revolution, the term came to be applied to "the poetry of such writers as Mikhail Gerasimov and Vladimir Kirillov...: emotional paeans to physical labor, machines, and the collective of industrial workers ... organized around the image of the universal 'Proletarian,' who strides forth from the earth to conquer planets and stars."[1] This form of cosmism, along with the writings of Nikolai Fyodorov, was a strong influence on Andrei Platonov.
Many ideas of the Russian cosmists were later developed by those in the transhumanist movement. Victor Skumin argues that the Culture of Health will play an important role in the creation of a human spiritual society into the Solar System.
The Culture of Health is the basic science about Spiritual Humanity. It studies the perspectives of harmonious development of "Spiritual man" and "Spiritual ethnos" as a conscious creator of the State of Light into the territory of the Solar System" (by Skumin).
The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin
Where Trump's real estate world meets a top religious ally of the Kremlin.
Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it.
[...]
Despite its small size, Chabad has grown to become the most sprawling Jewish institution in the world, with a presence in over 1,000 far-flung cities, including locales like Kathmandu and Hanoi with few full-time Jewish residents. The movement is known for these outposts, called Chabad houses, which function as community centers and are open to all Jews. “Take any forsaken city in the world, you have a McDonald’s and a Chabad house,” explained Ronn Torossian, a Jewish public relations executive in New York.
Chabad adherents differ from other Hasidic Jews on numerous small points of custom, including the tendency of Chabad men to wear fedoras instead of fur hats. Many adherents believe that the movement’s last living leader, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who died in 1994, is the messiah, and some believe he is still alive. Chabad followers are also, according to Klein, “remarkable” fundraisers.
As the closest thing the Jewish world has to evangelism—much of its work is dedicated to making Jews around the world more involved in Judaism—Chabad serves many more Jews who are not full-on adherents.
[...]
To those unfamiliar with Russian politics, Trump’s world and Hasidic Judaism, all these Chabad links can appear confounding. Others simply greet them with a shrug.
“The interconnectedness of the Jewish world through Chabad is not surprising insofar as it’s one of the main Jewish players,” said Boteach. “I would assume that the world of New York real estate isn’t that huge either.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chabad#Philosophy
Chabad Hasidic philosophy focuses on religious and spiritual concepts such as God, the soul, and the meaning of the Jewish commandments. Classical Judaic writings and Jewish mysticism, especially the Zohar and the Kabbalah of Rabbi Isaac Luria, are frequently cited in Chabad works. These texts are used both as sources of Chabad teachings and as material requiring interpretation by Chabad authors. Chabad philosophy is rooted in the teachings of Rabbis Yisroel ben Eliezer, (the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Hasidism) and Dovber ben Avraham, the "Maggid of Mezritch" (Rabbi Yisroel's successor).
https://w3.chabad.org/media/images/825/itqd8255248.jpg
"The messiah's coming is not simply the redemption of the Jews. But a general change in the entire world. We will recognize that God encompasses past, present and future as one."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menachem_Mendel_Schneerson
Menachem Mendel Schneerson (April 18, 1902 OS – June 12, 1994 / AM 11 Nissan 5662 – 3 Tammuz 5754), known to many as the Lubavitcher Rebbe or simply as the Rebbe, was a Russian Empire–born American Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and the last rebbe of the Lubavitcher Hasidic dynasty. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.
He was born in the Black Sea port of Nikolaev in the Russian Empire (now Mykolaiv in Ukraine). His father was rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, a renowned Talmudic scholar and authority on Kabbalah and Jewish law. His mother was Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson (nee Yanovski). He was named after the third Chabad rebbe, the Tzemach Tzedek, from whom he was a direct patrilineal descendent.
As leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, he took an insular Hasidic group that almost came to an end with the Holocaust and transformed it into one of the most influential movements in religious world Jewry, with an international network of over 3,000 educational and social centers. The institutions he established include kindergartens, schools, drug-rehabilitation centers, care-homes for the disabled and synagogues.
Schneerson's published teachings fill more than 300 volumes, and he is noted for his contributions to Jewish continuity and religious thought, as well as his wide-ranging contributions to traditional Torah scholarship. He is recognized as the pioneer of Jewish outreach. Many of his adherents refused to believe that he died on June 12, 1994, believing instead that he did not really die but will reveal himself to be the messiah
Israel
Chabad is officially non-Zionist. Schneerson referred to the State of Israel as "bitter exile and double-fold darkness," while other senior Chabad rabbis described the rebbe as one of the great fighters against Zionism.
At the same time, Schneerson took great interest in the affairs of the state of Israel, and did whatever was in his power to support the infrastructure of the state and advance its success. He was concerned with the agricultural, industrial and overall economic welfare of Israel, and sought to promote its scientific achievements, and enhance Israel's standing in the international community. Schneerson consistently expressed enormous recognition of the role of the Israel Defense Forces and stated that those who serve in the Israeli army perform a great Mitzva.
Ex-Chabad Member Exposes Trump Family Cult
I'll describe Chabad the way I see it given my past membership in it. Chabad is a racist organization - a Jewish supremacist missionary cult whose main goal is Jewish total superiority over the "Goyim" and their enslavement.
Jonas E. Alexis: Rabbi Yitzhak Ginzburg is an interesting individual because he has interesting things to say about the Goyim. He argues that there is an eternal or cosmic gap between the Goyim and “The Chosen.” He declares:
“If every single cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, and is thus part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA…
“If a Jew needs a liver, can he take the liver of an innocent non-Jew to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something more holy and unique about Jewish life than about non-Jewish life.”[1]
Stephen Steinlight, former Director of National Affairs for the American Jewish Committee (one of the most powerful Jewish organizations in the United States), stated bluntly,
“I’ll confess it, at least: like thousands of other typical Jewish kids of my generation, I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist…I was taught the superiority of my people to the gentiles who had oppressed us.
“We were taught to view non-Jews as untrustworthy outsiders, people from whom sudden gusts of hatred might be anticipated, people less sensitive, intelligent, and moral than ourselves. We were also taught that the lesson of our dark history is that we could rely on no one.”[2]
Michael Chabon of the New York Times concurs:
“As a Jewish child I was regularly instructed, both subtly and openly, that Jews, the people of Maimonides, Albert Einstein, Jonas Salk and Meyer Lansky, were on the whole smarter, cleverer, more brilliant, more astute than other people.
“And, duly, I would look around the Passover table, say, at the members of my family, and remark on the presence of a number of highly intelligent, quick-witted, shrewd, well-educated people filled to bursting with information, explanations and opinions on a diverse range of topics.”[3]
Chabon now pokes fun at what he referred to as “nonsense” and “our own stupidity as a people,”[4] but this just shows how ingrained the smarter-than-thou attitude is.
In 2010, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef unapologetically declared,
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world—only to serve the People of Israel. In Israel, death has no dominion over them…
“With gentiles, it will be like any person—they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created.”[5]
The rabbi, according to Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky, also saw that “Jews killing non-Jews does not constitute murder according to the Jewish religion and that killing of innocent Arabs for reasons of revenge is a Jewish virtue.”[6]
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Scheerson, known as Lubovitcher Rebbe and the seventh of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, came close to believing in something similar, saying that “a non-Jew should be punished by death if he kills an embryo, even if the embryo is non-Jewish, while the Jew should not be, even if the embryo is Jewish.”[7] The great Rabbi expanded on this view in 1965:
“The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: ‘Let us differentiate.’ Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of “let us differentiate” between totally different species.
[...]
WHAT AND WHO IS CHABAD?
I’ll describe Chabad the way I see it given my past membership in it. Chabad is a racist organization – a Jewish supremacist missionary cult whose main goal is Jewish total superiority over the “Goyim” and their enslavement.
Its central commandment is fulfilling the commandment “Breaking Through” i.e. making the world safe for Zionist world domination.
Chabad train their young to be emissaries when they grow up. Being “emissary” in Chabad terms means spreading their racist ideology to Jews all over the world – especially those who are not practicing Judaism. They give ideological and moral support for the Zionist Globalist Agenda.
They see the enslavement of the “Goyim” through the international Jewish banks and the international politics as serving their Messianic prophecies – a future world where the New World Order controls all the nations of the world.
Under their leader Rabbi Menachem Mendel (1902-1994), the movement established a network of nearly 4,000 institutions that provide religious, social and ideological support to Jews in over 1,000 cities, spanning 100 countries including all US states.
JEWS ARE GOD. GENTILES ARE INSECTS WHOSE ONLY PURPOSE IS TO SERVE JEWS OR DIE
According to Chabad, Jews themselves are “God”. Usury is permitted and encouraged against non-Jews (This is the motive of the NWO bankers). Chabad’s movement book “The Tania” is all about the Jews being God on Earth and non-Jews as being no more than animals – inferior without souls. If they do have souls their souls are demonic and satanic and originate in the “Klipot A’thmeot” i.e. the unholy spheres or the “Sitrha Achra”.
Gentiles are animals without souls in their eyes. The “Jewish Soul” is God incarnate. The entire universe—including the trillions of galaxies, stars and planets—were created solely for the Jews and by God YHVH who is actually a manifestation of the Jewish people itself. One finger nail of a Jew is worth more than the entire non-Jewish world populations (That includes Europeans, Muslims, Asians and Africans) according to Chabad…
THE New World Order AGENDA
Chabad is nothing more than a manifestation of the Jewish racism that fuels the NWO agenda. Israel’s founder and former Prime Minister David Ben Gurion’s envisioned the Jews as being at the center of the One World Government dream. This will be the fulfillment of the promises of the Bible where the Jews will be the controllers and rulers of all the nations of the world in the time to come.
The Jerusalem Supreme Court was built to support this agenda as envisioned by Ben Gurion:
“In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah…”
Guess who funded and built the “Supreme Court”? The controllers of the world banks i.e. the Rothschilds of course! The Jewish Racist and supremacist agenda is blatantly in your face… It is simply a matter of 2+2=4.
Cabala and Satanism are a means to weaken their host nations so they can more easily control these nations by degrading them. This is how they maintain their money monopoly. Hence we become more materialistic and less spiritual (look at modern “art” for example) and are then more easily controlled and enslaved
[...]
Henry Makow: Michael Berg demonstrated that Trump’s family (Kushners) belongs to Chabad, a racist, criminal Jewish supremacist doomsday cult. Trump commuted the 27-year prison sentence of Chabad kosher butcher, Rabbi Sholom Rabashkin, 57, a GOP donor. He had served only eight years.
“Rubashkin, as manager of the family owned Agriprocessors meat plant ($300 million annual revenue) in Postville, Iowa, was convicted in 2009 of financial fraud for submitting fake invoices to the plant’s bank that made the company’s finances appear healthier than they were so that it could borrow more. The bankruptcy revealed a $26 million scheme of fraud.
“In addition, in one of the nation’s largest illegal worker busts, federal authorities raided the plant and detained 389 illegal immigrants in 2008. ICE determined that at the time of their raid, two-thirds of the plant’s workers were undocumented. It turned out the company itself was cranking out false social security cards.
“There were also 9,311 counts of child labor violations in the indictments, as well as horrific safety violations.”
“Plant supervisors in this hell-on-earth were involved in rape and sexual abuse of workers. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) also documented and filmed what they called the worst animal abuses and extreme cruelty they had ever seen.
“The Rubashkin criminal exploits and methods were documented in the CNBC series ‘American Greed – The Slaughterhouse.’ The video has now been scrubbed from CNBC’s site. It has been mirrored elsewhere, but this may not be online long.”
The White House statement cited letters of support for review of Rubashkin’s case from more than 30 members of Congress of both parties, including House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and veteran Republican Senator Orrin Hatch.
Trump also pointed to bipartisan expressions of support for review of the case from over (100 former high-ranking U.S. Justice Department officials, prosecutors, judges and legal scholars.)
[...]
Jonas E. Alexis: The man who actually persuaded Trump to pardon Sholom Rubashkin was none other than Alan Dershowitz,[19] the very person who got caught plagiarizing and then got away with it.[20] Dershowitz—get this—brought up the issue of “anti-Semitism” in Rubashkin’s case![21] Even the Jewish Daily Forward itself acknowledged:
“AgriProcessors employees received little safety training, earned unusually low salaries and endured tough conditions. Many were undocumented immigrants.”[22]
And then this: “Dershowitz argued to Trump that prosecutors had unfairly manipulated Rubashkin’s sentence by driving down the company’s sale price, which increased the losses suffered by the banks that Rubashkin was found guilty of defrauding and therefore boosting his sentence. The federal judge who oversaw the case had rejected that argument in a ruling in January, but Trump was intrigued.”[23]
Dershowitz said: “When I explained that to the president, he understood that from a business point of view.”[24] The Jewish Daily Forward declared: “A few months later, on December 20, Trump commuted the remainder of Rubashkin’s sentence, freeing him from the Otisville, New York prison where he has spent the past eight years and sending Brooklyn’s Orthodox community into ecstasy.”[25]
So, both Henry Makow and Michael Berg are right on target: Trump is a representative of the Chabad movement and people like Alan Dershowitz. Trump’s report card at the end of 2017, especially when it comes to foreign policy, is complete failure. There is no such thing as “America First” when it comes to Trump. What we have seen thus far is “Chabad First”; “Israel First”; “Saudi Arabia First”; “Netanyahu First”; and “Alan Dershowitz First.” The only people who think that Trump is getting an A are Alex Jones and the Christian Zionist movement.
Youtube - Donald Trump Sold America to Israel
Inside the Putin-Netanyahu-Trump deal on Syria
Israel had remained largely neutral in the Syrian civil war but wanted Assad to go, and was quietly helping Syrians across their border with emergency medical care and humanitarian support. But when the United States made clear it will not intervene in southern Syria to stop Assad and Russia, Netanyahu cut a deal with Putin to make sure Israel’s interests were protected.
Under the deal, Israel (and now the United States, presumably) will formally endorse the Assad regime’s control over the area and work to implement the 1974 agreement, which sets the physical borders and provides for U.N. observers to be deployed in between the Syrians and Israelis. Under the new deal, Russia agrees to keep Iranian troops and proxy groups 80 kilometers, or about 50 miles, from Israel’s border (if they can), and Putin promises not to object if Israel strikes Iranian assets in southern Syria, especially if Iran deploys weapons that threaten Israel, such as strategic missiles or anti-aircraft systems.
[...]
Trump has made clear that his priority is to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria and damn the consequences. His national security advisers believe that would be disastrous and are trying to show progress before the president loses all patience and scraps the mission altogether. Trump has already frozen all stabilization assistance to Syria’s northeast, an area struggling to recover from years under Islamic State rule.
This article explains Putin's connections with the Chabad
Putin’s Chosen People: What’s behind the Russian president’s close relationship with an Orthodox Jewish sect?
Technically speaking, there are four “official” religions in Russia: Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism. But given that almost 70 percent of Russians identify as adherents to the Russian Orthodox Church, it’s pretty apparent that one religion is more “official” than others.
The smallest of the four is Judaism. There are fewer than 200,000 self-identified Jews in Russia today—less than the number of pagans—though the number of Russians from Jewish backgrounds who no longer identify with the religion is likely much higher. They are what remains after a mass exodus that saw more than 2 million Jews leave the countries of the former Soviet Union shortly before and after its collapse, mainly for the United States and Israel. Given that most Russians with Jewish backgrounds range from casual observers to entirely indifferent to their religion, it’s a bit unexpected that their official representatives hail from one of the more doctrinaire sects of Orthodox Judaism. You may be surprised to learn, too, that those representatives are quite close with President Vladimir Putin.
Chabad members—a small fraction of a small religious community—have become the dominant force in Russian Jewish life.
And while there were fears after the fall of the Soviet Union that rising Russian nationalism would lead to an upsurge in anti-Semitism, that never really materialized. “After the collapse of the USSR, the number of cases of anti-Semitism have been steadily dropping on an annual basis over the last 10 years,” says Yury Kanner, head of the country’s largest secular Jewish organization, the Russian Jewish Congress.
[...]
Whatever his many other sins, even Vladimir Putin’s harshest critics concede that he’s not an anti-Semite. As the New Republic’s Julia Ioffe notes, a number of his closest confidants, as well as the Judo teacher who served as a mentor and surrogate father, are Jews. He has personally intervened in cases of state anti-Semitism, such as an incident last year in which a teacher was charged with corruption and the prosecution used his Jewish last name as evidence. Putin labeled that “egregious,” and the conviction was overturned soon after.
Putin’s has also generally been supportive of Jewish institutions—one Jewish institution in particular. One of the more intriguing aspects of contemporary Russian Jewish life is the close relationship between the Kremlin and Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, the Hasidic sect known in the United States for its street-corner proselytizing to fellow Jews and reverence for the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Founded in Western Russia in the 18th century, the Lubavitchers decamped to the United States in 1940, setting up their new headquarters in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood. The Orthodox Jewish movement has dispatched hundreds of emissaries throughout the world to promote the faith. Just after the fall of Communism and just prior to his own death, Schneerson sent Rabbi Berel Lazar to represent Chabad in Russia.
[...]
Adolf Shayevech, a prominent figure in the community since the late Soviet period, was considered chief rabbi until 2000, and still claims the title. Kanner’s group, the Russian Jewish Congress, also recognizes Shayevech. But since Putin came to power in 2000, he has preferred to work with FEOR. Lazar, who is sometimes referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi,” now sits on the country’s public chamber, a government-appointed oversight committee. Lazar has been nothing but appreciative, praising Putin publicly as a friend of the Jews and calling Russia “one of the safest places for Jews in Europe.”
In a story that seemed tailor-made to demonstrate the rabbi’s devotion to both his faith and his patron in the Kremlin, it was reported in June 2013 that Lazar had agreed, at Putin’s request, to attend a World War II memorial event hours away from Moscow on a Friday afternoon. When his plane was delayed and arrived back in Moscow just 10 minutes before sundown, Lazar made an eight-hour, 19-mile walk home rather than break the Sabbath. Sources close to the rabbi told the Israeli newspaper Arutz Sheva that his willingness to make the difficult journey was an “example of the special connection between Rabbi Lazar and Russia's president.”
[...]
Chabad members—a small fraction of a small religious community—have become the dominant force in Russian Jewish life. “Eighty percent of all synagogues, the rabbis are Chabad,” Rabbi Alexander Boroda, the organization’s chief spokesman, told me in an interview. “But the people who come, many are just young people who want to come and learn something about Judaism.”
Boroda dismissed the notion that there was anything improper about his organization’s close relationship with the Kremlin. “The chief rabbi is the representative of the Jewish tradition,” he says. “It’s the Russian tradition, it’s not like America.” Indeed, a number of other Eastern European countries have chief rabbis, and in Ukraine, as in Russia, it’s a disputed position.
How exactly has Chabad reached its position of influence? For one thing, it has some influential backers. The Uzbek–Israeli billionaire diamond magnate Lev Leviev was an early and enthusiastic backer of FEOR. Roman Abramovich, the billionaire investor, governor, and owner of the Chelsea soccer team, has also been a backer, donating $5 million to build the Marina Roscha Synagogue.
Chabad, which unlike many other Jewish groups is a centrally organized hierarchical organization, also likely looks familiar to the Kremlin. Chabad “replicates in a way the structure of the Orthodox Church,” says Kanner. “There is a center that sends its ambassadors into the communities.”
David Shneer, a professor of Jewish history at the University of Denver who was studied the Lubavitchers’ role in Russia, says it also helps that Chabad is a “movement that cultivates ties with political leadership as part of a broader strategy to make a home wherever they happen to be.” He compares this to the medieval practice of shtadlanut, in which European Jews lobbied local rulers for rights.
Even though most Russian Jews aren’t Orthodox, Shneer says it shouldn’t be surprising that the Orthodox Chabad has taken on a leadership role in Russian Jewish life. “Chabad is evangelical Judaism,” he says. “They bring Judaism to people at whatever level they’re at. If they want to light candles, they’ll show them how to light candles. If they want to keep kosher, they’ll show them how to keep kosher. They know that 95 percent of people who attend Chabad events are not at all religiously observant. But their point is to bring a certain kind of Judaism to as many Jews as possible.”
[...]
Shneer feels that Chabad’s dominance, and the lack of reform or progressive alternatives, is “terrible for the future of pluralistic Judaism in Russia.” Russia is full of people with Jewish or partially Jewish family roots, but after decades of repression and immigration, many have little connection to the religion. On one level it seems unlikely that a branch of Judaism based in part on a rejection of modern society will be the one to bring doubters back into the fold.
Kanner, though, says the relative lack of interest in reform or liberal branches of Judaism shouldn’t be surprising, and is rooted in the community’s troubled history. “In Soviet times, we were Jews based on our blood. It was a nationality not a religion,” he says. “The main principle of reformism is that you can be a Jew while also being French or German or whatever. That’s why there was no basis for reformism. In Russia, you are first a Jew, then you are anything else.”
Times may have changed and the situation may have improved, but the idea that you can at once be a Jew and a Russian will still take time to take hold.

Three days before the presidential election, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump visited the Queens gravesite of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and, according to The Times of Israel, they prayed for Donald Trump’s victory.
Schneerson, who died in 1994, is an interesting character. Although he never claimed it himself, some of his followers consider him the Messiah, and others believe he is still alive.
Menachem Mendel Schneerson, known to many as the Rebbe, was a Russian Empire-born American Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and the last Lubavitcher Rebbe. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.
As leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, he took an insular Hasidic group that almost came to an end with the Holocaust and transformed it into one of the most influential movements in world Jewry, with an international network of over 3,000 educational and social centers. The institutions he established include kindergartens, schools, drug-rehabilitation centers, care-homes for the disabled and synagogues.
The Kushner family is Modern Orthodox, and of course Ivanka converted to Judaism prior to her marriage to Jared. Still, according to Ben Schreckinger of Politico Magazine, Kushner was affiliated with the Chabad house at Harvard when he was a student there. Since settling in DC, the couple has reportedly been attending services at a Chabad synagogue.
What Jared and Ivanka want to do in their spiritual lives is their business, and I have no intention of casting any aspersions on the Chabad-Lubavitch movement or Rabbi Schneerson. I do however want to explore some things that may circle back to this pre-election pilgrimage to Schneerson’s grave.
Let’s begin here:
Starting in 1999, [Vladimir] Putin enlisted two of his closest confidants, the oligarchs Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich, who would go on to become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as “Putin’s rabbi.”
There’s a good chance that if you know of Roman Abramovich, you know him as the owner of the Chelsea Football Club of the English Premier League. You may not know that he was a victor (along with Paul Manafort’s patron Oleg Deripaska) in the bloody aluminum wars of the 1990s, or that he was reportedly the person who convinced Boris Yeltsin that Putin would be a proper successor. You probably are not aware that Ivanka Trump is very close friends with Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova, with whom she recently attended the U.S. Open tennis tournament in Queens. Zhukova reportedly attended the inauguration as Ivanka’s personal guest.
It takes a little more doing to understand the Trump family’s connections to Lev Leviev. To begin with, we need to go back to Bayrock, the company that Donald Trump teamed up with to build his Trump Soho project. There were three main actors in that enterprise. One was convicted mob associate and murky FBI informant Felix Sater. Another was Tevfik Arif, a shady man with likely Russian intelligence connections who was once was arrested by the Turks on Mustafa Kamal Ataturk’s yacht and “charged with running an international underage prostitution ring.” The third was the late Tamir Sapir, another man with ties to Russian intelligence. If you’re interested in this aspect of the story, I refer you to my Trump’s Soho Project, the Mob, and Russian Intelligence article and also Mike Lofgren’s piece: Mobbed Up, both written in late February.
Interestingly, all these men have connections to the Chabad movement. Felix Sater was honored as Man of the Year in 2014 by the Port Washington Chabad house. The same Chabad house’s website lists Tevfik Arif, who is not Jewish, “among its top 13 benefactors.”
But it’s Tamir Sapir who links Trump back directly to Lev Leviev.
Pay close attention to this:
…the late billionaire Tamir Sapir, was born in the Soviet state of Georgia and arrived in 1976 in New York, where he opened an electronics store in the Flatiron district that, according to the New York Times, catered largely to KGB agents.
Trump has called Sapir “a great friend.” In December 2007, he hosted the wedding of Sapir’s daughter, Zina, at Mar-a-Lago. The event featured performances by Lionel Ritchie and the Pussycat Dolls. The groom, Rotem Rosen, was the CEO of the American branch of Africa Israel, the Putin oligarch Leviev’s holding company.
Five months later, in early June 2008, Zina Sapir and Rosen held a bris for their newborn son. Invitations to the bris described Rosen as Leviev’s “right-hand man.” By then, Leviev had become the single largest funder of Chabad worldwide, and he personally arranged for the bris to take place at Schneerson’s grave, Chabad’s most holy site.
The man I want to focus on is Rotem Rosen. He is described here as the CEO of Leviev’s American holding company and his “right hand man.” Now, remember that Leviev was described at the top as one of two oligarch’s who Putin tapped to establish the “Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as ‘Putin’s rabbi.'”
Now, let’s flash ahead to Trump’s trip to Moscow to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2013.
After the contest, Trump attended a vodka-infused 1 a.m. afterparty at which ticket holders were promised a meeting with the New Yorker, along with the pageant contestants.
He also met with the Agalarovs to talk business…
…Joining Trump’s November 2013 meeting with the Agalarovs were Alex Sapir and Rotem Rosen, a pair of New York-based Russian developers who helped to develop the Trump Soho hotel and condominium project in Manhattan.
You should know the Agalarovs because they initiated the undisclosed June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Kushner, Manafort and Donald Trump Jr. and a brood of Kremlin-connected conspirators offering dirt on Hillary Clinton in return for sanctions relief.
Alex Sapir is the son of Tamir Sapir, brother of Zina, and brother-in-law of Rotem Rosen.
Just so we’re clear, Trump hosted the wedding of Lev Leviev’s right-hand man at Mar-a-Lago. Lev Leviev is so close to Putin that he was one of two oligarchs tapped to help him gain control of the leadership of the Russian Jewish community back when he assumed power.
[...]
These are extraordinarily close ties between Putin and Trump and that also connect Trump’s business discussions in 2013 about Moscow real estate projects with the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower that has become one of the strongest pieces of evidence of collusion in the election.
Putin: First Soviet government was mostly Jewish
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that at least 80 percent of the members of the first Soviet government were Jewish.
“I thought about something just now: The decision to nationalize this library was made by the first Soviet government, whose composition was 80-85 percent Jewish,” Putin said June 13 during a visit to Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.
Putin was referencing the library of Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, the late leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The books, which are claimed by Chabad representatives in the United States, began being moved to the museum in Moscow this month.
People should click on the links to the articles and read them in their entirety. I've only picked select parts of them because there's a lot to read through and not enough space.
Zionists have been behind all sorts of things like 9/11 and the infiltration of Hollywood to direct American culture into a more amoral direction. They hide behind Putin and Russia to implement certain goals as well, one of which they've just about completed. The complete takeover of the United States. All roads lead to the Transhumanism agenda for enslavement of the goyim, which is what the Chabad call non-Jews.
In my opinion, the first major step in how they are going to achieve this "Mark of the Beast", will be DNA modification with blockchain technology to store your "wallet" inside your own DNA.

The End Game for the Real Elites and How They Connect to Trump, Putin and Israel: The Chabad & Kabbalism

The End Game for the Real Elites and How They Connect to Trump, Putin and Israel: The Chabad & Kabbalism
With all of my research I have done, I have come to conclude that the end game for all of this NWO stuff, is Transhumanism. Which will result in the complete annihilation of the human species in one way or another.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transhumanism
You can read about their official stances here.
https://ascensionglossary.com/index.php/Transhumanism
And this is why I think it is so dangerous.
Youtube - Most People Don't Even Realize What's Coming
This video illustrates how this is all coming to fruition. And notice a certain world leader that has been accused of meddling and interfering with other countries elections and what he has to say about this stuff.
Who Vladimir Putin thinks will rule the world
Speaking to students during a national "open lesson" from the city of Yaroslavl, northeast of Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country that takes the lead in the sphere of computer-based artificial intelligence (AI) will rule. "Artificial intelligence is the future not only of Russia but of all of mankind," said Putin. "There are huge opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to foresee today."
"Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world," he said
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cosmism
Russian cosmism is a philosophical and cultural movement that emerged in Russia in the early 20th century. It entailed a broad theory of natural philosophy, combining elements of religion and ethics with a history and philosophy of the origin, evolution and future existence of the cosmos and humankind. It combined elements from both Eastern and Western philosophic traditions as well as from the Russian Orthodox Church.
Cosmism was one of the influences on Proletkult, and after the October Revolution, the term came to be applied to "the poetry of such writers as Mikhail Gerasimov and Vladimir Kirillov...: emotional paeans to physical labor, machines, and the collective of industrial workers ... organized around the image of the universal 'Proletarian,' who strides forth from the earth to conquer planets and stars."[1] This form of cosmism, along with the writings of Nikolai Fyodorov, was a strong influence on Andrei Platonov.
Many ideas of the Russian cosmists were later developed by those in the transhumanist movement. Victor Skumin argues that the Culture of Health will play an important role in the creation of a human spiritual society into the Solar System.
The Culture of Health is the basic science about Spiritual Humanity. It studies the perspectives of harmonious development of "Spiritual man" and "Spiritual ethnos" as a conscious creator of the State of Light into the territory of the Solar System" (by Skumin).
The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin
Where Trump's real estate world meets a top religious ally of the Kremlin.
Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it.
[...]
Despite its small size, Chabad has grown to become the most sprawling Jewish institution in the world, with a presence in over 1,000 far-flung cities, including locales like Kathmandu and Hanoi with few full-time Jewish residents. The movement is known for these outposts, called Chabad houses, which function as community centers and are open to all Jews. “Take any forsaken city in the world, you have a McDonald’s and a Chabad house,” explained Ronn Torossian, a Jewish public relations executive in New York.
Chabad adherents differ from other Hasidic Jews on numerous small points of custom, including the tendency of Chabad men to wear fedoras instead of fur hats. Many adherents believe that the movement’s last living leader, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who died in 1994, is the messiah, and some believe he is still alive. Chabad followers are also, according to Klein, “remarkable” fundraisers.
As the closest thing the Jewish world has to evangelism—much of its work is dedicated to making Jews around the world more involved in Judaism—Chabad serves many more Jews who are not full-on adherents.
[...]
To those unfamiliar with Russian politics, Trump’s world and Hasidic Judaism, all these Chabad links can appear confounding. Others simply greet them with a shrug.
“The interconnectedness of the Jewish world through Chabad is not surprising insofar as it’s one of the main Jewish players,” said Boteach. “I would assume that the world of New York real estate isn’t that huge either.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chabad#Philosophy
Chabad Hasidic philosophy focuses on religious and spiritual concepts such as God, the soul, and the meaning of the Jewish commandments. Classical Judaic writings and Jewish mysticism, especially the Zohar and the Kabbalah of Rabbi Isaac Luria, are frequently cited in Chabad works. These texts are used both as sources of Chabad teachings and as material requiring interpretation by Chabad authors. Chabad philosophy is rooted in the teachings of Rabbis Yisroel ben Eliezer, (the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Hasidism) and Dovber ben Avraham, the "Maggid of Mezritch" (Rabbi Yisroel's successor).
\"The messiah's coming is not simply the redemption of the Jews. But a general change in the entire world. We will recognize that God encompasses past, present and future as one.\"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menachem_Mendel_Schneerson
Menachem Mendel Schneerson (April 18, 1902 OS – June 12, 1994 / AM 11 Nissan 5662 – 3 Tammuz 5754), known to many as the Lubavitcher Rebbe or simply as the Rebbe, was a Russian Empire–born American Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and the last rebbe of the Lubavitcher Hasidic dynasty. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.
He was born in the Black Sea port of Nikolaev in the Russian Empire (now Mykolaiv in Ukraine). His father was rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, a renowned Talmudic scholar and authority on Kabbalah and Jewish law. His mother was Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson (nee Yanovski). He was named after the third Chabad rebbe, the Tzemach Tzedek, from whom he was a direct patrilineal descendent.
As leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, he took an insular Hasidic group that almost came to an end with the Holocaust and transformed it into one of the most influential movements in religious world Jewry, with an international network of over 3,000 educational and social centers. The institutions he established include kindergartens, schools, drug-rehabilitation centers, care-homes for the disabled and synagogues.
Schneerson's published teachings fill more than 300 volumes, and he is noted for his contributions to Jewish continuity and religious thought, as well as his wide-ranging contributions to traditional Torah scholarship. He is recognized as the pioneer of Jewish outreach. Many of his adherents refused to believe that he died on June 12, 1994, believing instead that he did not really die but will reveal himself to be the messiah
Israel
Chabad is officially non-Zionist. Schneerson referred to the State of Israel as "bitter exile and double-fold darkness," while other senior Chabad rabbis described the rebbe as one of the great fighters against Zionism.
At the same time, Schneerson took great interest in the affairs of the state of Israel, and did whatever was in his power to support the infrastructure of the state and advance its success. He was concerned with the agricultural, industrial and overall economic welfare of Israel, and sought to promote its scientific achievements, and enhance Israel's standing in the international community. Schneerson consistently expressed enormous recognition of the role of the Israel Defense Forces and stated that those who serve in the Israeli army perform a great Mitzva.
Ex-Chabad Member Exposes Trump Family Cult
I'll describe Chabad the way I see it given my past membership in it. Chabad is a racist organization - a Jewish supremacist missionary cult whose main goal is Jewish total superiority over the "Goyim" and their enslavement.
Jonas E. Alexis: Rabbi Yitzhak Ginzburg is an interesting individual because he has interesting things to say about the Goyim. He argues that there is an eternal or cosmic gap between the Goyim and “The Chosen.” He declares:“If every single cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, and is thus part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA…
“If a Jew needs a liver, can he take the liver of an innocent non-Jew to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something more holy and unique about Jewish life than about non-Jewish life.”
Stephen Steinlight, former Director of National Affairs for the American Jewish Committee (one of the most powerful Jewish organizations in the United States), stated bluntly,
“I’ll confess it, at least: like thousands of other typical Jewish kids of my generation, I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist…I was taught the superiority of my people to the gentiles who had oppressed us.“We were taught to view non-Jews as untrustworthy outsiders, people from whom sudden gusts of hatred might be anticipated, people less sensitive, intelligent, and moral than ourselves. We were also taught that the lesson of our dark history is that we could rely on no one.”
Michael Chabon of the New York Times concurs:
“As a Jewish child I was regularly instructed, both subtly and openly, that Jews, the people of Maimonides, Albert Einstein, Jonas Salk and Meyer Lansky, were on the whole smarter, cleverer, more brilliant, more astute than other people.
“And, duly, I would look around the Passover table, say, at the members of my family, and remark on the presence of a number of highly intelligent, quick-witted, shrewd, well-educated people filled to bursting with information, explanations and opinions on a diverse range of topics.”
Chabon now pokes fun at what he referred to as “nonsense” and “our own stupidity as a people,”[4] but this just shows how ingrained the smarter-than-thou attitude is.
In 2010, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef unapologetically declared,
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world—only to serve the People of Israel. In Israel, death has no dominion over them…
“With gentiles, it will be like any person—they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created.”
The rabbi, according to Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky, also saw that “Jews killing non-Jews does not constitute murder according to the Jewish religion and that killing of innocent Arabs for reasons of revenge is a Jewish virtue.”
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Scheerson, known as Lubovitcher Rebbe and the seventh of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, came close to believing in something similar, saying that “a non-Jew should be punished by death if he kills an embryo, even if the embryo is non-Jewish, while the Jew should not be, even if the embryo is Jewish.”[7] The great Rabbi expanded on this view in 1965:
“The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: ‘Let us differentiate.’ Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of “let us differentiate” between totally different species.
[...]
WHAT AND WHO IS CHABAD?
I’ll describe Chabad the way I see it given my past membership in it. Chabad is a racist organization – a Jewish supremacist missionary cult whose main goal is Jewish total superiority over the “Goyim” and their enslavement.Its central commandment is fulfilling the commandment “Breaking Through” i.e. making the world safe for Zionist world domination.
Chabad train their young to be emissaries when they grow up. Being “emissary” in Chabad terms means spreading their racist ideology to Jews all over the world – especially those who are not practicing Judaism. They give ideological and moral support for the Zionist Globalist Agenda.
They see the enslavement of the “Goyim” through the international Jewish banks and the international politics as serving their Messianic prophecies – a future world where the New World Order controls all the nations of the world.Under their leader Rabbi Menachem Mendel (1902-1994), the movement established a network of nearly 4,000 institutions that provide religious, social and ideological support to Jews in over 1,000 cities, spanning 100 countries including all US states.
JEWS ARE GOD. GENTILES ARE INSECTS WHOSE ONLY PURPOSE IS TO SERVE JEWS OR DIE
According to Chabad, Jews themselves are “God”. Usury is permitted and encouraged against non-Jews (This is the motive of the NWO bankers). Chabad’s movement book “The Tania” is all about the Jews being God on Earth and non-Jews as being no more than animals – inferior without souls. If they do have souls their souls are demonic and satanic and originate in the “Klipot A’thmeot” i.e. the unholy spheres or the “Sitrha Achra”.
Gentiles are animals without souls in their eyes. The “Jewish Soul” is God incarnate. The entire universe—including the trillions of galaxies, stars and planets—were created solely for the Jews and by God YHVH who is actually a manifestation of the Jewish people itself. One finger nail of a Jew is worth more than the entire non-Jewish world populations (That includes Europeans, Muslims, Asians and Africans) according to Chabad…
THE New World Order AGENDA
Chabad is nothing more than a manifestation of the Jewish racism that fuels the NWO agenda. Israel’s founder and former Prime Minister David Ben Gurion’s envisioned the Jews as being at the center of the One World Government dream. This will be the fulfillment of the promises of the Bible where the Jews will be the controllers and rulers of all the nations of the world in the time to come.
The Jerusalem Supreme Court was built to support this agenda as envisioned by Ben Gurion:“In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah…”
Guess who funded and built the “Supreme Court”? The controllers of the world banks i.e. the Rothschilds of course! The Jewish Racist and supremacist agenda is blatantly in your face… It is simply a matter of 2+2=4.Cabala and Satanism are a means to weaken their host nations so they can more easily control these nations by degrading them. This is how they maintain their money monopoly. Hence we become more materialistic and less spiritual (look at modern “art” for example) and are then more easily controlled and enslaved[...]Henry Makow: Michael Berg demonstrated that Trump’s family (Kushners) belongs to Chabad, a racist, criminal Jewish supremacist doomsday cult. Trump commuted the 27-year prison sentence of Chabad kosher butcher, Rabbi Sholom Rabashkin, 57, a GOP donor. He had served only eight years.
“Rubashkin, as manager of the family owned Agriprocessors meat plant ($300 million annual revenue) in Postville, Iowa, was convicted in 2009 of financial fraud for submitting fake invoices to the plant’s bank that made the company’s finances appear healthier than they were so that it could borrow more. The bankruptcy revealed a $26 million scheme of fraud.
“In addition, in one of the nation’s largest illegal worker busts, federal authorities raided the plant and detained 389 illegal immigrants in 2008. ICE determined that at the time of their raid, two-thirds of the plant’s workers were undocumented. It turned out the company itself was cranking out false social security cards.
“There were also 9,311 counts of child labor violations in the indictments, as well as horrific safety violations.”“Plant supervisors in this hell-on-earth were involved in rape and sexual abuse of workers. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) also documented and filmed what they called the worst animal abuses and extreme cruelty they had ever seen.
“The Rubashkin criminal exploits and methods were documented in the CNBC series ‘American Greed – The Slaughterhouse.’ The video has now been scrubbed from CNBC’s site. It has been mirrored elsewhere, but this may not be online long.”
The White House statement cited letters of support for review of Rubashkin’s case from more than 30 members of Congress of both parties, including House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and veteran Republican Senator Orrin Hatch.
Trump also pointed to bipartisan expressions of support for review of the case from over (100 former high-ranking U.S. Justice Department officials, prosecutors, judges and legal scholars.)
[...]
Jonas E. Alexis: The man who actually persuaded Trump to pardon Sholom Rubashkin was none other than Alan Dershowitz,[19] the very person who got caught plagiarizing and then got away with it.[20] Dershowitz—get this—brought up the issue of “anti-Semitism” in Rubashkin’s case! Even the Jewish Daily Forward itself acknowledged:“AgriProcessors employees received little safety training, earned unusually low salaries and endured tough conditions. Many were undocumented immigrants.”
And then this: “Dershowitz argued to Trump that prosecutors had unfairly manipulated Rubashkin’s sentence by driving down the company’s sale price, which increased the losses suffered by the banks that Rubashkin was found guilty of defrauding and therefore boosting his sentence. The federal judge who oversaw the case had rejected that argument in a ruling in January, but Trump was intrigued.”
Dershowitz said: “When I explained that to the president, he understood that from a business point of view.”[24] The Jewish Daily Forward declared: “A few months later, on December 20, Trump commuted the remainder of Rubashkin’s sentence, freeing him from the Otisville, New York prison where he has spent the past eight years and sending Brooklyn’s Orthodox community into ecstasy.”
So, both Henry Makow and Michael Berg are right on target: Trump is a representative of the Chabad movement and people like Alan Dershowitz. Trump’s report card at the end of 2017, especially when it comes to foreign policy, is complete failure. There is no such thing as “America First” when it comes to Trump. What we have seen thus far is “Chabad First”; “Israel First”; “Saudi Arabia First”; “Netanyahu First”; and “Alan Dershowitz First.” The only people who think that Trump is getting an A are Alex Jones and the Christian Zionist movement.

Inside the Putin-Netanyahu-Trump deal on Syria
Israel had remained largely neutral in the Syrian civil war but wanted Assad to go, and was quietly helping Syrians across their border with emergency medical care and humanitarian support. But when the United States made clear it will not intervene in southern Syria to stop Assad and Russia, Netanyahu cut a deal with Putin to make sure Israel’s interests were protected.
Under the deal, Israel (and now the United States, presumably) will formally endorse the Assad regime’s control over the area and work to implement the 1974 agreement, which sets the physical borders and provides for U.N. observers to be deployed in between the Syrians and Israelis. Under the new deal, Russia agrees to keep Iranian troops and proxy groups 80 kilometers, or about 50 miles, from Israel’s border (if they can), and Putin promises not to object if Israel strikes Iranian assets in southern Syria, especially if Iran deploys weapons that threaten Israel, such as strategic missiles or anti-aircraft systems.
[...]
Trump has made clear that his priority is to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria and damn the consequences. His national security advisers believe that would be disastrous and are trying to show progress before the president loses all patience and scraps the mission altogether. Trump has already frozen all stabilization assistance to Syria’s northeast, an area struggling to recover from years under Islamic State rule.
This article explains Putin's connections with the Chabad
Putin’s Chosen People: What’s behind the Russian president’s close relationship with an Orthodox Jewish sect?
Technically speaking, there are four “official” religions in Russia: Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism. But given that almost 70 percent of Russians identify as adherents to the Russian Orthodox Church, it’s pretty apparent that one religion is more “official” than others.
The smallest of the four is Judaism. There are fewer than 200,000 self-identified Jews in Russia today—less than the number of pagans—though the number of Russians from Jewish backgrounds who no longer identify with the religion is likely much higher. They are what remains after a mass exodus that saw more than 2 million Jews leave the countries of the former Soviet Union shortly before and after its collapse, mainly for the United States and Israel. Given that most Russians with Jewish backgrounds range from casual observers to entirely indifferent to their religion, it’s a bit unexpected that their official representatives hail from one of the more doctrinaire sects of Orthodox Judaism. You may be surprised to learn, too, that those representatives are quite close with President Vladimir Putin.
Chabad members—a small fraction of a small religious community—have become the dominant force in Russian Jewish life.
And while there were fears after the fall of the Soviet Union that rising Russian nationalism would lead to an upsurge in anti-Semitism, that never really materialized. “After the collapse of the USSR, the number of cases of anti-Semitism have been steadily dropping on an annual basis over the last 10 years,” says Yury Kanner, head of the country’s largest secular Jewish organization, the Russian Jewish Congress.
[...]
Whatever his many other sins, even Vladimir Putin’s harshest critics concede that he’s not an anti-Semite. As the New Republic’s Julia Ioffe notes, a number of his closest confidants, as well as the Judo teacher who served as a mentor and surrogate father, are Jews. He has personally intervened in cases of state anti-Semitism, such as an incident last year in which a teacher was charged with corruption and the prosecution used his Jewish last name as evidence. Putin labeled that “egregious,” and the conviction was overturned soon after.
Putin’s has also generally been supportive of Jewish institutions—one Jewish institution in particular. One of the more intriguing aspects of contemporary Russian Jewish life is the close relationship between the Kremlin and Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, the Hasidic sect known in the United States for its street-corner proselytizing to fellow Jews and reverence for the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Founded in Western Russia in the 18th century, the Lubavitchers decamped to the United States in 1940, setting up their new headquarters in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood. The Orthodox Jewish movement has dispatched hundreds of emissaries throughout the world to promote the faith. Just after the fall of Communism and just prior to his own death, Schneerson sent Rabbi Berel Lazar to represent Chabad in Russia.
[...]
Adolf Shayevech, a prominent figure in the community since the late Soviet period, was considered chief rabbi until 2000, and still claims the title. Kanner’s group, the Russian Jewish Congress, also recognizes Shayevech. But since Putin came to power in 2000, he has preferred to work with FEOR. Lazar, who is sometimes referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi,” now sits on the country’s public chamber, a government-appointed oversight committee. Lazar has been nothing but appreciative, praising Putin publicly as a friend of the Jews and calling Russia “one of the safest places for Jews in Europe.”
In a story that seemed tailor-made to demonstrate the rabbi’s devotion to both his faith and his patron in the Kremlin, it was reported in June 2013 that Lazar had agreed, at Putin’s request, to attend a World War II memorial event hours away from Moscow on a Friday afternoon. When his plane was delayed and arrived back in Moscow just 10 minutes before sundown, Lazar made an eight-hour, 19-mile walk home rather than break the Sabbath. Sources close to the rabbi told the Israeli newspaper Arutz Sheva that his willingness to make the difficult journey was an “example of the special connection between Rabbi Lazar and Russia's president.”
[...]
Chabad members—a small fraction of a small religious community—have become the dominant force in Russian Jewish life. “Eighty percent of all synagogues, the rabbis are Chabad,” Rabbi Alexander Boroda, the organization’s chief spokesman, told me in an interview. “But the people who come, many are just young people who want to come and learn something about Judaism.”
Boroda dismissed the notion that there was anything improper about his organization’s close relationship with the Kremlin. “The chief rabbi is the representative of the Jewish tradition,” he says. “It’s the Russian tradition, it’s not like America.” Indeed, a number of other Eastern European countries have chief rabbis, and in Ukraine, as in Russia, it’s a disputed position.
How exactly has Chabad reached its position of influence? For one thing, it has some influential backers. The Uzbek–Israeli billionaire diamond magnate Lev Leviev was an early and enthusiastic backer of FEOR. Roman Abramovich, the billionaire investor, governor, and owner of the Chelsea soccer team, has also been a backer, donating $5 million to build the Marina Roscha Synagogue.
Chabad, which unlike many other Jewish groups is a centrally organized hierarchical organization, also likely looks familiar to the Kremlin. Chabad “replicates in a way the structure of the Orthodox Church,” says Kanner. “There is a center that sends its ambassadors into the communities.”
David Shneer, a professor of Jewish history at the University of Denver who was studied the Lubavitchers’ role in Russia, says it also helps that Chabad is a “movement that cultivates ties with political leadership as part of a broader strategy to make a home wherever they happen to be.” He compares this to the medieval practice of shtadlanut, in which European Jews lobbied local rulers for rights.
Even though most Russian Jews aren’t Orthodox, Shneer says it shouldn’t be surprising that the Orthodox Chabad has taken on a leadership role in Russian Jewish life. “Chabad is evangelical Judaism,” he says. “They bring Judaism to people at whatever level they’re at. If they want to light candles, they’ll show them how to light candles. If they want to keep kosher, they’ll show them how to keep kosher. They know that 95 percent of people who attend Chabad events are not at all religiously observant. But their point is to bring a certain kind of Judaism to as many Jews as possible.”
[...]
Shneer feels that Chabad’s dominance, and the lack of reform or progressive alternatives, is “terrible for the future of pluralistic Judaism in Russia.” Russia is full of people with Jewish or partially Jewish family roots, but after decades of repression and immigration, many have little connection to the religion. On one level it seems unlikely that a branch of Judaism based in part on a rejection of modern society will be the one to bring doubters back into the fold.
Kanner, though, says the relative lack of interest in reform or liberal branches of Judaism shouldn’t be surprising, and is rooted in the community’s troubled history. “In Soviet times, we were Jews based on our blood. It was a nationality not a religion,” he says. “The main principle of reformism is that you can be a Jew while also being French or German or whatever. That’s why there was no basis for reformism. In Russia, you are first a Jew, then you are anything else.”Times may have changed and the situation may have improved, but the idea that you can at once be a Jew and a Russian will still take time to take hold.
Another article connecting Chabad, Trump and Putin
The Odd Chabad Connection Between Putin and Trump
Three days before the presidential election, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump visited the Queens gravesite of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and, according to The Times of Israel, they prayed for Donald Trump’s victory.
Schneerson, who died in 1994, is an interesting character. Although he never claimed it himself, some of his followers consider him the Messiah, and others believe he is still alive.
Menachem Mendel Schneerson, known to many as the Rebbe, was a Russian Empire-born American Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and the last Lubavitcher Rebbe. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.As leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, he took an insular Hasidic group that almost came to an end with the Holocaust and transformed it into one of the most influential movements in world Jewry, with an international network of over 3,000 educational and social centers. The institutions he established include kindergartens, schools, drug-rehabilitation centers, care-homes for the disabled and synagogues.
The Kushner family is Modern Orthodox, and of course Ivanka converted to Judaism prior to her marriage to Jared. Still, according to Ben Schreckinger of Politico Magazine, Kushner was affiliated with the Chabad house at Harvard when he was a student there. Since settling in DC, the couple has reportedly been attending services at a Chabad synagogue.
What Jared and Ivanka want to do in their spiritual lives is their business, and I have no intention of casting any aspersions on the Chabad-Lubavitch movement or Rabbi Schneerson. I do however want to explore some things that may circle back to this pre-election pilgrimage to Schneerson’s grave.Let’s begin here:
Starting in 1999, [Vladimir] Putin enlisted two of his closest confidants, the oligarchs Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich, who would go on to become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as “Putin’s rabbi.”
There’s a good chance that if you know of Roman Abramovich, you know him as the owner of the Chelsea Football Club of the English Premier League. You may not know that he was a victor (along with Paul Manafort’s patron Oleg Deripaska) in the bloody aluminum wars of the 1990s, or that he was reportedly the person who convinced Boris Yeltsin that Putin would be a proper successor. You probably are not aware that Ivanka Trump is very close friends with Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova, with whom she recently attended the U.S. Open tennis tournament in Queens. Zhukova reportedly attended the inauguration as Ivanka’s personal guest.
It takes a little more doing to understand the Trump family’s connections to Lev Leviev. To begin with, we need to go back to Bayrock, the company that Donald Trump teamed up with to build his Trump Soho project. There were three main actors in that enterprise. One was convicted mob associate and murky FBI informant Felix Sater. Another was Tevfik Arif, a shady man with likely Russian intelligence connections who was once was arrested by the Turks on Mustafa Kamal Ataturk’s yacht and “charged with running an international underage prostitution ring.” The third was the late Tamir Sapir, another man with ties to Russian intelligence. If you’re interested in this aspect of the story, I refer you to my Trump’s Soho Project, the Mob, and Russian Intelligence article and also Mike Lofgren’s piece: Mobbed Up, both written in late February.
Interestingly, all these men have connections to the Chabad movement. Felix Sater was honored as Man of the Year in 2014 by the Port Washington Chabad house. The same Chabad house’s website lists Tevfik Arif, who is not Jewish, “among its top 13 benefactors.”
But it’s Tamir Sapir who links Trump back directly to Lev Leviev.
Pay close attention to this:
…the late billionaire Tamir Sapir, was born in the Soviet state of Georgia and arrived in 1976 in New York, where he opened an electronics store in the Flatiron district that, according to the New York Times, catered largely to KGB agents.
Trump has called Sapir “a great friend.” In December 2007, he hosted the wedding of Sapir’s daughter, Zina, at Mar-a-Lago. The event featured performances by Lionel Ritchie and the Pussycat Dolls. The groom, Rotem Rosen, was the CEO of the American branch of Africa Israel, the Putin oligarch Leviev’s holding company.
Five months later, in early June 2008, Zina Sapir and Rosen held a bris for their newborn son. Invitations to the bris described Rosen as Leviev’s “right-hand man.” By then, Leviev had become the single largest funder of Chabad worldwide, and he personally arranged for the bris to take place at Schneerson’s grave, Chabad’s most holy site.The man I want to focus on is Rotem Rosen. He is described here as the CEO of Leviev’s American holding company and his “right hand man.” Now, remember that Leviev was described at the top as one of two oligarch’s who Putin tapped to establish the “Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as ‘Putin’s rabbi.'”
Now, let’s flash ahead to Trump’s trip to Moscow to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2013.After the contest, Trump attended a vodka-infused 1 a.m. afterparty at which ticket holders were promised a meeting with the New Yorker, along with the pageant contestants.
He also met with the Agalarovs to talk business…
…Joining Trump’s November 2013 meeting with the Agalarovs were Alex Sapir and Rotem Rosen, a pair of New York-based Russian developers who helped to develop the Trump Soho hotel and condominium project in Manhattan.You should know the Agalarovs because they initiated the undisclosed June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Kushner, Manafort and Donald Trump Jr. and a brood of Kremlin-connected conspirators offering dirt on Hillary Clinton in return for sanctions relief.
Alex Sapir is the son of Tamir Sapir, brother of Zina, and brother-in-law of Rotem Rosen.
Just so we’re clear, Trump hosted the wedding of Lev Leviev’s right-hand man at Mar-a-Lago. Lev Leviev is so close to Putin that he was one of two oligarchs tapped to help him gain control of the leadership of the Russian Jewish community back when he assumed power.
[...]
These are extraordinarily close ties between Putin and Trump and that also connect Trump’s business discussions in 2013 about Moscow real estate projects with the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower that has become one of the strongest pieces of evidence of collusion in the election.
Putin: First Soviet government was mostly Jewish
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that at least 80 percent of the members of the first Soviet government were Jewish.
“I thought about something just now: The decision to nationalize this library was made by the first Soviet government, whose composition was 80-85 percent Jewish,” Putin said June 13 during a visit to Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.
Putin was referencing the library of Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, the late leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The books, which are claimed by Chabad representatives in the United States, began being moved to the museum in Moscow this month.
Former Mossad Agent in Russia Says Putin and Russia are Chabad. (@10:40 mins)
People should click on the links to the articles and read them in their entirety. I've only picked select parts of them because there's a lot to read through and not enough space.
Zionists have been behind all sorts of things like 9/11 and the infiltration of Hollywood to direct American culture into a more amoral direction. They hide behind Putin and Russia to implement certain goals as well, one of which they've just about completed. The complete takeover of the United States. All roads lead to the Transhumanism agenda for enslavement of the goyim, which is what the Chabad call non-Jews.
In my opinion, the first major step in how they are going to achieve this "Mark of the Beast", will be DNA modification with blockchain technology to store your "wallet" inside your own DNA.

17 Organizations Promoting Regenerative Agriculture Around the Globe

Transitioning to more sustainable forms of agriculture remains critical, as many current agriculture practices have serious consequences including deforestation and soil degradation. But despite agriculture’s enormous potential to hurt the environment, it also has enormous potential to heal it. Realizing this, many organizations are promoting regenerative agriculture as a way to not just grow food but to progressively improve ecosystems.
Drawing from decades of research, regenerative agriculture uses farming principles designed to mimic nature. To build healthy soils and fertile, thriving agro-ecosystems, this approach incorporates a range of practices like agroforestry and well-managed grazing. Benefits of these practices include richer soil, healthier water systems, increased biodiversity, climate change resilience, and stronger farming communities.
To celebrate the ongoing work of individuals and organizations dedicated to healing agro-ecosystems around the globe, Food Tank is highlighting these 17 organizations building a global grassroots movement for better agriculture.

Questions Answers
Hi Prof. Kuskin. I'm enrolled in the course and I'm really looking forward for it to begin. Question: will you put some material in advance (some coursera courses do) so that we can take advantage of the weekend? Hi, rdentato! Thanks for writing. I've been looking forward to this course for a while. That's a good idea. We're going to do a bit more proofing today. If it looks sharp, I'll open it up and let people look around!
Please please do... several course put materials in advance or one or two weeks and this makes a big difference. For example, I travel a lot and my work schedule is irregular, so having the chance of having the lecture before helps me when I have a busy week! I see this is getting a lot of points. Will definitely get with my tech staff to open the course ASAP. When we do, I will send out an email.
Why do you think comic books and graphic novels are such a successful storytelling medium? Great question, tyesterday. You know, my own feeling is that comics are like medieval manuscripts from the fifteenth century. They are best, best, best artform for the book. They are something to have and collect and sort of worship.
As the internet has made books only one medium of many for communication, the comic book has seized the format and exploded.
That said, a lot of the energy has to do with community. People need a community of the imagination. Comics provide the platform for that community.
I love this Medieval aspect and perspective...it ties to the one-page assignment you have stated. Like the old monks illustrating the letters of their manuscripts with story-driven art-work!!! Yes!
Professor, in your study of comic book history, do you think that comics in general have been ahead of the curve when it comes to social, race, and gender issues? Or have they mostly lagged behind the times? Has comics really been a force for good or just entertainment for the masses? Excellent, Jlgill. Complex question. I think, like all art, comics tend to throw a lot out there, so it's hard to generalize. Certainly race and gender have lagged, and continue to lag. There is a lot of racism and sexism in comics, no doubt.
But, one of the first comics, the first of the species, is William Hogarth's Four Stages of Cruelty (ca. 1750 or so, so pretty early in the scheme of things), and he's drawing and writing about animal rights, and gender abuse. So there it is—can't generalize.
What Comic Book/Graphic Novel would you recommend to someone who's looking to start reading them? Two writing assignments, two multiple choice tests (easy), and making your own comic book!
How big will the comic book have to be? I have some ideas of varying lengths, but would need to work out some details ahead of time. So, four pages + cover is the basic assignment. More pages will be rewarded with extra credit.
Hey Prof. Kuskin! My brother and I are both taking your course and we're really looking forward to it. 28,000+ people is an incredible number. How do you feel about having an audience that large? Do you anticipate that students will suffer to some degree from the lack of intimacy you might expect from a classroom or lecture hall? Hi, Joompah. Thanks for writing in. Yes, I agree, it's got to suffer that, a loss of intimacy. I signed on to this for two reasons: first, I think comics are anti-authoritarian and MOOCs are anti-authoritarian. It's a match I like, and I am so proud and humbled that the University of Colorado Boulder got behind this project.
Second, I really believe in the Humanities. I feel that even with the loss of intimacy, if some people can be exposed to thinking about BIG IDEAS AND BIG QUESTIONS through comics, they will have a better life. I believe that.
So, the cost is the intimacy. I like to learn all my studnets' names, and sweat their writing out with them. Obviously, I can't quite do that here.
Hear, Hear! to getting the word out to the masses. I am a 50 yr old optometrist and do not have time to return to college. Ive taken an astronomy course from Duke, a micro-economics course from U of Illinois and now will start a Humanities course from U of Boulder. Go Go MOOCs!!! Bravo!
, there will be quite a few people whose names you'll learn, Professor. The active ones on the forums, the ones that will submit good comics of their own. Intimacy doesn't always require diminutive scale.
Hi Prof. Kuskin, what is your favorite comic book series of all time? Dark Knight Returns.
It's maybe not the best comic book, and I disagree with almost everything Frank Miller has said of late, but boy, what a comic! I remember my first time reading it. It blew me away, and still does. (that said, I do have an enormous batman tattoo, so maybe I'm biased.)
Have you ever thought about monetizing this course? Would the bitcoin revolution be a solution to this problem? You know, though I like the idea of virtual currency funding my comics library as much as the next nerdy guy, I think it's just fantastic that the course is free. It's renewed me in some ways, and I hope to share that energy.
So let,s talk. How will the writing assignment look like? Hey, Posnikr! The writing assignments are very focused. They concentrate on one page from a comic, which you will be supplied with. The whole assignment is to focus in on that page and read it like a brilliant visual-textual poem.
To be honest with you (and whoever else is out there!), I developed the assignment--stole part of it--from my Chaucer mentor. It's my first attempt at making it work in a massive format.
We shall see!
Would the page in question be from a work that we would, at that point, have been expected to have read, or will it be taken out of the context of the comic itself? I think both assignments would be interesting, but am curious about what you have in mind. Hey, Kanta7.
So, I assign two essays in the course. The first one pulls some pages from comics I have discussed in my lectures. The second one, later in the semester, adds a few we don't discuss.
BUT...
The point of the assignment is entirely to focus on the page. Each page is a little beautiful poem for you to tease apart. (I learned this from my doctoral director on Chaucer, back in the 1890s). So, really you don't need any more than a page.
It's hard to focus. I'll teach to you to focus.
Wm.
So You can not give wilder approach to the topic just the materials which will be provided ? Hi, posnikr. See above. It is a very narrow focus. But I promise, it will teach you to read depth in every page.
I really want you to stick to the materials. My goal is to teach depth, focus, and clarity in structure.
What got you into comics? Hey, easterislandstatue (great username, by the way): my mom read them to me in Central Park in NYC as a kid. Then I would go home and cut them into little playsets at home... thousands of silver age playsets.
I stopped reading when I was in grad school. Became a bit of snob.
Then, about ten years ago, I went through a rough patch, and wandered into a comic shop in New Orleans. Couldn't believe how it all developed.
From there, I was hooked again.
And you?
Hello Prof. Kuskin. Do you often read comics? Which comics recently published you would recommend for somebody? I do read comics a lot.
I am really grooving on the work of Matt Kindt, Paul Pope, and Jeff Lemire. I stayed up and read all of Lemire's Sweet Tooth in trade paperback in one night recently.
I would recommend his Underwater Welder.
But you can't go wrong with Paul Pope's One Trick Rip Off. Really can't.
What program/tool will we use to make our own comic? Will we need special software or computer platform? No, you will not. You'll need to figure out how to scan your documents and upload them. That's it. In fact, there is nothing better than a comic made with pencil, ink, and paper, and then scanned in.
Hello, Professor Kuskin! I'm very excited for this course. Two questions: 1) How exactly did you come to decide on what materials to use for the class? 2) What comic books/graphic novels didn't make the cut for the course that you would suggest people read? Whew! There are a lot of questions here, and I read yours and meant to answer it earlier because it is a very good one.
So, here is what I think, and I have to say this with some humility because the comics world is a huge one with a great knowledge base.
I believe there has emerged over the past ten years a clear literary history and canon of American comics. I think my syllabus reflects this canon, and I think it is fair to say that it would be a shame for a student of comics not to know the comics I list off.
That said, nobody--NOBODY--is going to be happy with my selections because comics are very emotional and because, well, any list is going to be partial.
I am sad that I've left out Persepolis--it didn't make my final cut--I am sad too that Grant Morrison's work is not really going to be represented. I would have liked to spend even more time on the underground scene, and on alternative comics, particularly Los Bros Hernandez (wikipedia them if you are not familiar). You will see that that lecture is a long one.
Ultimately, I think you can see from all the enthusiasm on this reddit that there is much passionate in comics.
No one will be particularly happy with my list, but I hope everybody is generally happy that the course is being taught!
Sort of a rewording of hegglehog's question about the Hawkeye Initiative. Do you see a future in comics/graphic novels, especially the superhero genre, where women are portrayed more realistically (i.e., less as idealized sexual objects, and more as normal people)? So, The Hawkeye initiative is interesting. Ultimately, superhero comics are going to have a lot of trouble getting over physical stereotypes. That's the genre. Crime, sci-fi, and even fantasy are moving ahead in this direction.
Hi Prof!! In Spain, education needs comics, superheros and all you could imagine :D Any idea???. Hi, Okenda. Thanks so much for writing in. So, Sandman gets some attention, and I go with Watchmen over From Hell, though, I really do think From Hell is a masterpiece. Watchmen fits with the structure of the course a bit better, though From Hell may be the more significant comic.
Are we going to have a deep talk about Neil Gaiman master piece, The Sandman books, and Moore's From Hell??. Do you know any Spanish comic artist like Paco Roca?. So many comics, so few days in the course...
Thaaank you very much for this course!!!. Wm.
Since you are located in Boulder, Colorado how have the floods effected you? I know CU was closed for a while. Well, Boulder did take a hit. The surrounding towns as well--Lyons, Longmont, Estes Park, Nederland, and so forth. Very, very sad.
The university reacted tremendously. We were closed for two days, but got back going quickly, and are running like a top now. It was a very impressive reaction.
I was fine. A bit wet, but fine. Thank you for asking.
Professor, I enjoyed and was very much in agreement with your assessment of sequential arts and its place in literature/culture. Would you suggest your course to any prospective graphic novel creators? Yes, actually. My course is chiefly analytic and historical, but my main contention is that no one writes (or draws) alone—that is, no one can drop into a living artform without recognizing the history of that artform, it's experience through time.
So, I can only hope that my lectures expand that history a little bit. I know that I have learned a lot putting them together.
Do you think text — dialogues, captions etc. — are mandatory for comics to qualify as comics? People have argued that storyboards or wordless novels, picture books, or even, back in time, scrolls, are all forms of comics. Would you agree to that, will your course propose a definition for comics; or do you think that definitions are beside the point? Thank you. So, there are many wordless books that qualify as comics and are wonderful stories. You know, HoaSi, I really do think definitions are besides the point. Arguing about definitions is a lot of fun, but ultimately it slows down the imaginative investigation. Comics are part of a larger combination of literature and artwork, of storytelling through books--and I mean books here really broadly, for an ipad is a book—that has been going on for thousands of years.
Where is the medium going? what is your prediction for the next big thing in comics? Very good question, Bambi_stars. What does Adama say in Battlestar Glactica? "I don't do hypotheticals?" It's a wise statement.
I've been mulling over where I think the energy is, though, and I think that there is a lot of energy in creators, like Pope, Lemire, and Kindt, who are moving in and out of the superhero and "alternative comics" genre. What I mean to say is that I think so-called mainstream superhero comics have tremendous force and importance to the comics community, but it's not necessarily where the best or most adventurous work is being done. So I look to people who did not start that way bringing a new perspective in.
How will this class prepare students for their future careers and lives? This is a brilliant, question, Salacious!
I have a lot to say on this topic. And first, I'll say this: a few of my students have gone on to try to make comics their careers, so that's a direct application. But! I really want to say this: the study of art--and I mean comics as art--is critical, and I mean critical to a good life. Comics are great this way, because they are an easily accessible art form. Why? Because art gives us life to study. Each comic book page is a problem set, and writing about the page is way of analyzing a problem set.
Why are american comics serialized such that what you buy at the store is just a single series? why are american comics not sold in anthologies, as japanese comics are? were american comics once sold in anthologies, and if so, what happened to them? Hi, Choubugioxkel. This is a fascinating question, that I think comes down to the way comics have always been distributed. American comics began as a throw-away literature reprinting newspaper "funnies" and so they have always been seen as ephemeral.
My sense is that the so-called Graphic Novel revolution has made a lot of change here, and that a lot of readers now wait for the anthologies. I know I do.
How on earth will you be able to respond to 28,000 students. Do you have powers you've not yet revealed? Galactus is my TA.
Why do comics gravitate towards "capes?" What, you don't wear one when you're relaxing...
Oops...
Hi, Prof. Kuskin. I'm a huge graphic novel fan (especially Alan Moore's work). I already have a good background in graphic novels and I'm very excited about your course. I just wish to know the level of detail we will adopt to read texts like Maus and Watchmen - will it be a basic analysis or in-depth, taking into account historical events (Maus) or other pop-culture and historical references (as in Watchmen)? Hey, Oneiros. (gulp).
Okay, in this course, I try to split the difference. Set up the text with one large scale question, and then really focus on as tightly as I can on a single page.
I ask the same of you in the papers (which I describe in one of the threads below).
I much favor in-depth close reading of the page. That's my into each comic.
Hey Doc. Brave of you. Retired teacher here. Looking for the fun. I am beyond erudite and sophmoric. Glad to be part of this. Dislike testing. Too close to testosteroning. So no Perespolis on this list but Building Stories is ! Curious. Muiti cultural choices ? American Born Chinese ! Looking forward to Monday. Hey how about Crumb's Genesis ? Thimble Theater ? Excellent list of texts, jmusich. So, I too dislike testing, and I don't know how the "assessements" will go. For me, it is part of the experience in this new frontier.
I actually finished recording the Crumb lectures last week. I focus on ZAP and BIG ASS, but one of the things that this course has already taught me is that his shadow is long.
Yes, you are free to disagree, but I find Building Stories very important.
Hi, how deep are we going to study the semiotic level in comic. i mean, the simbolism under the narrative, the semantics of their meanings, the formal structures of signs and it´s agents? THX! Okay, this is an interesting question. In my view--and here it comes--much comics criticism, indeed, much humanities criticism has a very semiotic turn to it, and is very, very concerned with a technical language for representation. Now, it is my view, that over the past thirty years this has alienated much of the audience for the Humanities, narrowing the academy so that it is talking to itself. (Boy this is from a guy who started out by reading Louis Althusser).
One major goal for this course is to show that the supposedly simplistic comic book can hit at major intellectual questions. Now, to get at those questions, you certainly have to close read those books carefully, but you don't have to bury them in a difficult language.
Comics are for everyone. Literature is for everyone. Art is for everyone. We need a semiotic language that recognizes this truth.
Hope that makes a little bit of sense.
How does the industry feel about the current trend in Hollywood movies based on comics? Hey, dontjudgemefood. I think the industry--the mainstream industry--owned as they are by movie companies, and plenty happy. Mainstream comics are always tilting to bankruptcy. Ouch.
Prof Kuskin, I already enrolled. What do you think about the so-called GNs but actually TPBs that collected ongoing issues? Also, since the course starts in 3 days, shouldn't the course forums be opened so people who enrolled can discuss there? Hi, Multjiang. After I wrap up this reddit, I have a few images to map and a little proofreading, and then we will go live, a bit early, so people can jump in.
In one of the first videos I discuss the difference between GNs and TPBs. To me, they are all comics. I don't think we should get too hung up on these definitions.
Have you thought of mentioning independent lengthy comics in the course such as Jeff Smith's Bone and Dave Sim's Cerebus? Just mentioned Cerebus in recording my lectures last sunday. It's a brief mention, but the independent comics movement is powerful.
Hi Professor, how do you feel about Comic Books and Graphic Novels as an introduction to reading? I'm asking this because my gateway to reading narratives was Calvin and Hobbes, but only now I'm getting into comics with Allan Moore. I said in one of the earlier posts that I started reading comics with my mom during dog walks in Central Park in NYC. It was during those walks, back in the late 60s that I learned to read. I guess Stan Lee was my first author, and in that he taught me to read. So, I think comics are great to learn to read, although maybe Alan Moore would be a tough start...
Though even as I type that, I realize that one of my firmest beliefs about reading is that it should be self-motivating. It is a challenge for each parent to decide what is appropriate--on the one hand, some images in comics do seem inappropriate but on the other hand, I am not to judge what fires off a child's imagination and gets them reading.
I digress.
Yes! A great introduction to reading!
Will you be touching on any non-capes-&-cowls graphic novels, such as Essex County by Jeff Lemire? Boy, Dollinha, I haven't read "Essex County." I just read my way through Sweet Tooth, and you can bet that I'll be buying this soon!
Thanks for the tip. (and there, just for the record, I sure haven't read everything).
But, looking over the reading list, superheroes only get part time in this course. There is so much out there that doesn't involve them...
This is my first approach to comic books and graphic novels. I am very excited to start but also I feel a little intimidated. Do you have any advice for your "non-background" students? Please do not feel intimidated. First, comics are for everybody. They are not about rites of passage or about warehouses of knowledge. They are about the imagination.
Second, the MOOC should be challenging and engaging, but it is also for everyone. It is not about being the brightest or about being perfect in any way. (Lord knows, you will discover that I am imperfect!).
In a nutshell, this course is about thinking about some great stories and taking some personal risks.
I am total newbie when it comes to comics. I haven't read many but I do want to start reading them and learn to appreciate them. Is this a good course to achieve that? Yes, niting!
This is course for you. I've taught it many times, and my students always feel that it renews them. Welcome aboard!
Hello Professer Kuskin, I was wondering what you think of the current fiasco that is DC comics? Hey, emmawestlund! I think you nailed it. It's a fiasco! I'm going to talk about this when I get to Planetary, which is a total indulgence on my part. Warren Elllis has a great phrase, "Decoherence," and I think it applies well to "The New 52."
But... art is generative, so there is always hope. Let's keep hoping!
Greetings from Greece! Would you say that this course would set a good basis to a person who likes to draw and wants to get involved in illustration but has absolutely no clue how? Hi! Glad you've signed up. Yes! This course will not teach you to draw, but it will discuss and make you think about layout. Layout is key.
The comic book is a collaborative medium by convention and due to time consumption. Very few do fill all of the positions all by themselves. What is your view regarding collaboration between students? When we make our own comic, for example, will we be able to work in groups? I suppose what I'm asking is — does the course allow for that and to what extent? In my bricks and mortar version, I allow for collaboration. In this version, I don't emphasize it--there is no way for me to track the student submissions accurately. I would say here, and I will say if it comes up in the discussion forums, that people can work together, but that each person needs to pull his or her weight.
Hi Prof. Kuskin! What sorts of insight do you hope this course will give people in the comics industry? Well, I would hope for three things: 1. I hope this brings a lot of people into reading comics on a regular basis, so in this way, I really hope that this course is good for comics, and good for the comics industry in general. 2. I hope the industry notes that people are really interested in big questions and smart comics. Sure, it's great to see beautifully drawn heroes slugging it out against nefarious evil-doers, but I hope to see more and more thoughtful and aware comics. 3. With that, wouldn't it be beyond great if someone from this course decided to make a go at comics and, actually, could pay their rent on it?
Since this is so multinational, could we do another AMA where people list a favorite comic or graphic novel from their country? The course is focusing on US work but I'd love to use this opportunity to learn about work beyond the US. Might be a fun end of course question. Nice idea. If this does not naturally come up in the discussion forums over the next seven weeks, let's make a promise, Zorgly, to force the issue.
How do you feel about Greg Land and his success in the industry? Hey, Grimrecycler.
This is a tougher question to answer than it appears, so thanks for asking it. On the one hand, let's be fair: there are no rules to comics except what will float in the market. That's an important rule, is it not? I mean, if we're going to start hedging comics, we will quickly be in the business of hedging art--back to 1954.
On the other hand, I'm not really a fan. He's made a fine career on some stereotypical artwork that some find offensive. I put him, sadly, in the same boat that Mark Millar seems to be currently rowing (from the writing side of things).
There. I said it.
What comics do you currently buy monthly?...and do you still make weekly trips to the store to pick up new comics? Hey, M0ntana! Thanks for this question. What do I buy monthly? Batman (which I've not been happy with, but can't give up), Kick-Ass (which I'm not happy with, and am about to give up), Lazarus (which I like), Massive (so-so), Scarlet, Fatale, Trilluim--probably some others, but that is what springs to mind (and my mind and fingers are getting a little tired).
Hello professor. Will there be any live lessons during this course? If so, on what medium would that be? Wow. I hadn't even thought about live lessons. I will jump into the discussion forums pretty regularly. I'll talk to my tech person.
Valiant re-boots, The Last Unicorn, what happened to Warlock? What did happen to Warlock? It's a good question!
Is there a reading list for the class? I do a podcast called Alt3red Egos and I read a ton of comics, but I need to "schedule" my reading time. If I had a list of books that would help with the class, I could do that. Welcome! So, the basic reading is on the Coursera "profile" which is at Link to www.coursera.org When the course opens, you'll be able to download the syllabus, which presents the whole course.
Hey, Prof. Enrollee here! How many classmates do I have? Yes, about 28k, but who knows how many will make it to the end?
Hi proof! I've been a non structure storyboarder for some years. I wonder if we...if we will get some (structure) and, specially, if we will also work on the course. By 'work' I mean all kind of means (keyboards electroshocks included) that push us to draw, design storyboards along the classes. Will we? Yes you will!
Hello Professor - greetings from New Jersey. I got into comics as a way to teach my dyslexic 3rd grade son how to read. He is now a honor roll 7th grader! Hoping to gain further understanding and insight into the medium as I am still much the novice. Thank you for the opportunity. Great. Bravo on the Honor Roll! You should be proud.
I think you'll see many ways of working on focus in this course.
Go NJ!
This is a brilliant, question, Salacious! I have a lot to say on this topic. And first, I'll say this: a few of my students have gone on to try to make comics their careers, so that's a direct application.
I'm enrolled in the class. At the time I enrolled, comics were just an interest of mine. Within the past couple months, I've actually been hired as an editor for comics. Looking at comics through an academic lens will only better my understanding of them, which will help me as an editor! Bravo!
I believe all the lectures will be on coursera as long as the class is. not sure if that answers your question. Well answered, almightypoodle! Yes, I believe that is true. You can enter into the course late, drop out for a bit, and come back and learn at your own pace.
I am an academic librarian looking forward to this class - a departure from my usual routine...borrowed most of the books from my daughter and ready to go! Excellent! I hope that you get a kick from the course and that it filters into your librarian ship.
I am a bit worried about the 'make your own comic book' bit. Not much creativity or art skills here. Week three gets a little heavy, sexually. I certainly wouldn't have been embarrassed when I was 15, but I would have been a bit embarrassed if I was watching with my Mom!
Just stopping by to say hello. I can't wait for class to start! :) Hello, studentloansadness!
Bought the first novels already! So excited! Wonderful!
Hello, Pr Kuskin, Please don't be afraid, totoro46!
I' m enrolled - a little afraid as a beginner, so many people knowing so many things. I live in Spain. As an ignorant, I have no question until now ! Waiting for monday ;) I wrote on this earlier, but comics are for everyone! It's not about winning or losing, it's about liberating the imagination.
Evenin' from the UK. FYI Its nearly 8pm here, not 7pm as stated in the Email ;) Sorry! Lord knows, it's hard enough for me to make it to work on time! Glad you made it.
