Silencing the Saber-Rattling: How the American Empire Threatens the Potential Iranian Counter-Revolution

by Paul David Collins, July 4th, 2009

John Loftus proved to be a treasure chest of information over the Middle East during an interview with this writer on March 21, 2009. In little over an hour, the former Justice Department prosecutor and former Army intelligence officer addressed the issues of postwar Nazi activity, the September 11 attacks, and fanaticism in the Arab world. The most fascinating information Loftus shared, however, concerns Iran.

The Central Eurasian Islamic Republic has been a hot topic for many observers of the international political landscape ever since Bush II referred to it as part of an “axis of evil” during his January 29, 2002 State of the Union speech. That speech helped create an absolutely schizophrenic political climate filled with saber-rattling and war-fever that has held sway for the last seven years. During that period of time, rumors of an invasion of Iran have periodically surfaced, causing people in both America and Iran to oscillate between anxiety and sighs of relief. Former CIA case officer Robert Baer has referred to Iran as “the third rail of American foreign policy in the world” (Interview: Robert Baer). It is the country that every administration has dared not touch since 1979. With Iran on the verge of possessing a nuclear power program, however, avoidance may no longer be an option. What will be Iran’s fate? For Loftus, the tide of history will soon make an invasion of Iran completely unnecessary.

“I believe the government will eventually collapse and Iran will return to democracy,” Loftus told this writer. “The clock will turn back to the way things were before the 1953 coup.”

Of course, this statement raised an eyebrow. “Do you mean to say another Mossadegh will rise,” I asked.

“Yes,” Loftus responded. (Loftus)



War in the Heavens

by Paul David Collins, May 31st, 2009

Appearing on the podcast Beyond the Grassy Knoll always provided this writer with a great opportunity to kick around the hypothetical peanut. The March 8, 2009 show was certainly no exception. During the course of the program, the topic of the specter of global war raised its ugly head. The possible, almost inevitable, endgame scenario is a gloomy subject to say the least. Still, the fact that the final competition between the world’s power elite may be manifested as a worldwide conflict is something that show host Vyzygoth felt needed to be addressed. Cutting directly to the chase, Vyz asked when we believed the first blows in the title fight should be expected. In response, this writer told Vyz and the Knoll audience that a world war would not be possible until nations could produce troop surges that would put a million boots on the ground. Demographic bleed and a considerable drop in replacement births, courtesy of the power elite’s depopulation efforts, limits present war-making capabilities and guarantees that such a conflict will be delayed for several years. Vyz accepted this assessment of the situation and moved on to the next part of the show.

There is, however, other war preparations that may have to be made that only came to this writer’s mind after the show was over. Those preparations would not take place on the earth, but above it. For enthusiasts of space travel and man’s attempts to conquer gravity, space is considered the final frontier. But for the military establishments of the world’s most powerful nations, space has become the final battleground.

The concept of space weapons may have found its beginning in the most unlikely of places: late 19th century science fiction stories. These early literary fantasies imagined a super weapon with destructive force that beggared description. The super weapon came in many shapes and sizes and quickly shed its terrestrial chains within the pages of science fiction novels.

In 1889, Frank Stockton introduced the concept of the super weapon in his novel The Great War Syndicate. In this science fiction novel, which first appeared as a serial in the popular Collier’s Weekly, a war between America and Britain prompts 23 extremely wealthy super-capitalists to form a syndicate committed to defeating the British foes and reaping tremendous profits in the process (Franklin 152). Once assembled, the Great War Syndicate builds the “Motor Bomb,” a weapon that almost mirrors the atomic bomb (152).



Basra: Bethlehem of the New World Order

by Paul David Collins, September 19th, 2008

Some news pieces prove that those in power have absolutely no interest in the truth. One such story was carried in the July 1, 2008 Washington Post. The story concerned a former CIA operative who claims that the Agency ignored evidence that he had presented showing that Iran had ceased work on a nuclear weapon in 2003 (Warrick, no pagination). According to a lawsuit filed by the operative in 2004, the CIA fired him when he attempted to file reports that contradicted the position held by the Administration and the Agency concerning weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East (no pagination). The operative’s lawyer, Roy Krieger, also stated that the operative was ordered by his superiors on five occasions to either fail to file reports or falsify reports concerning WMDs in the Near East (no pagination).

The operative, whose identity is currently being kept secret by the CIA, had his 22 year intelligence career come crashing down when he tried to share information gathered by an informant with “access to sensitive information about Iran’s nuclear program” (no pagination). When the informant provided the operative with secret evidence that Iran had ceased its pursuit of nuclear weapons, the hierarchy at the CIA suppressed the information and ended the operative’s handler relationship with the informant (no pagination). When the operative persisted in his attempts to get the evidence out, he was investigated for an inappropriate sexual relationship with an informant and illegal financial dealing (no pagination). The CIA failed to prove the accusations and the operative charged that he was the target of a campaign to discredit him (no pagination).



Human Compromise

by Paul David Collins ©, April 10th, 2008


When the Spitzer scandal broke out, the first person this author thought to call was retired New York Police Detective James “Jim” Rothstein. Jim is a legend. As a cop, Jim took on organized pedophile rings, arrested Watergate burglar and CIA operative Frank Sturgis, and testified before the New York State Select Committee on Crime. Jim knows all about sexual blackmail operations, which he refers to as “human compromise” (Rothstein, no pagination). To Jim, the Spitzer scandal was a perfect example of “human compromise” (ibid). “It’s like déjà vu,” said Rothstein (ibid). And to Rothstein, GOP operative Roger Stone was the key to the compromising of Spitzer (ibid).

“Watch for this guy Stone,” Jim said. “I saw him in an interview about Spitzer a few days ago and thought I recognized him. I looked back at my old investigations and remembered that he was part of Roy Cohn’s whole thing.” (ibid)

Jim was referring to Roy Cohn’s sexual blackmail operation. According to Jim, this operation was conducted “under the guise of fighting communism” (ibid). During his time as a police detective, Rothstein had an opportunity to sit down with infamous McCarthy committee counsel Roy Cohn (ibid). Cohn admitted to Rothstein that he was part of a rather elaborate sexual blackmail operation that compromised politicians with child prostitutes (ibid). Roger Stone began working with Cohn when he was the northeast chairman of Reagan’s 1980 campaign (Labash, no pagination). Cohn and Stone had began building an alliance a year earlier when Cohn introduced Stone to mobster Fat Tony Salerno at Cohn’s Manhattan townhouse (ibid). According to the Weekly Standard’s Matt Labash, “Stone loved Cohn” (ibid). Stone said of Cohn: “He didn’t give a [expletive removed] what people thought, as long as he was able to wield power. He worked the gossip columnists in [New York] like an organ” (ibid).



Deep Oil, Deep Politics

by Paul David Collins ©, April 2nd, 2008

Bout - Oil - ArmsIt’s a move that is causing fear among the left in Mexico. Mexican president Felipe Calderon intends to present an energy reform bill to the Mexican congress that would allow private investment in Pemex, Mexico’s state-owned oil monopoly (Grillo, no pagination). Calderon claims foreign oil companies can save Pemex from underinvestment and mismanagement by increasing Mexico’s technological and operational capacity, thus allowing the nation to tap its deep-water reserves. According to Calderon, if foreigners are not brought in, Mexico will not be able to tap its deep-water reserves and the nation will be importing petroleum in nine years. Critics of Calderon’s plan include 2006 presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Rep. Alejandro Sanchez of the leftist Democratic Revolution Party. Obrador and Sanchez fear foreign investment will lead to a predatory form of privatization and Mexicans will lose control of their own oil industry. But the dangers related to foreign incursions into Mexico’s oil industry go deeper than the debate between proponents of nationalization and privatization. The oil industry and the intelligence community have always gone hand in hand. Pemex is certainly no exception.



The Deep Politics of God Revisited

The Kunz Murder

CNP | Lucifer's LodgeSome crime scenes are so grisly and gruesome that they beggar description. One such scene was discovered on March 4th, 1998 by a young teacher at the residence of Father Alfred Kunz (Kennedy 150). Father Kunz was discovered face down in a pool of his own blood with his throat cut (150). While the culprit was never found, there is a body of evidence that suggests Satanism was involved in the murder. A mutilated calf was discovered on a farm fifteen minutes away from Kunz’s dead body (150-151). The calf had its throat slit and its blood drained into a milk pail (151). The calf’s genitals had also been cut off (151). Cult experts consider calf mutilations to be “the calling card or ‘signature’ of Satanists” (151). Kunz’s slit throat was also significant. The oaths of many secret societies include throat slicing as a penalty for revealing a group’s closest secrets (152-53). Was Kunz exposing the operations of a cult? Kunz’s friend and associate, former Vatican insider Malachi Martin certainly thought so. Six weeks after Kunz’s murder, Martin appeared on a radio show claiming to have inside information that Kunz’s murder was carried out by Luciferians (153). Luciferians are not your garden variety devil worshippers, but they are devil worshippers nonetheless.

Kunz’s murder came shortly after he made it known that the format of his hour-long radio show called Catholic Family Hour was going to be modified (151). Malachi Martin, a former Vatican insider and expert on deviant sex rings within the Catholic Church, had become a regular guest on the show (151). The night Kunz was murdered was the exact same night that Kunz’s friend, Father Charles Fiore, took over the Catholic Family Hour show (151). Fiore planned to begin exposing satanic pedophile rings within the Catholic Church (151-52). Fiore was in a perfect position to collect intelligence on deviant sex rings both inside and outside the Catholic Church because of his participation in the Council for National Policy (CNP). Fiore had been on the CNP’s Board of Governors in 1982, and had been a CNP participant in 1984 and 1988 (“Council for National Policy: Selected Member Biographies,” no pagination). Fiore had also been a member of fellow CNP participant Ed McAteer’s Religious Roundtable Council (no pagination).



Sex is a Gun: The Deeper Story of the D.C. Madam

by Paul David Collins ©, May 7th, 2007

On May 1, 2007, I had the opportunity to interview legendary former NYPD detective James Rothstein over the topic of elite and intelligence-connected sex rings in Washington, D.C. I asked Rothstein if Deborah Jeane Palfrey (a.k.a. the D.C. Madam) and her Pamela Martin and Associates could be considered a sex ring connected to the power elite and the intelligence community meant to compromise important political figures. James Rothstein not only answered yes, but also made it clear that the D.C. Madam’s outfit could not exist in Washington, D.C. unless it was a tool of elites and dark factions in the intelligence community (Rothstein, no pagination). This got me looking for connections. However, it was hard for me to connect dots when Palfrey was being so tight-lipped.

However, Palfrey’s interview with The Smoking Gun shown that even the tightest lips can sometimes get a little loose. In this interview, Palfrey speculated:

that she may have come to the attention of federal agents because her operation had somehow intersected with a more high profile case, like that of convicted ex-congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham. (No pagination)



The Ghost of Roy Cohn

by Paul David Collins ©, May 7th, 2007

Her name is Deborah Jeane Palfrey and she has Washington circles worried. Why are powerful and important people breaking into a sweat when they hear Palfrey’s name? Deborah Jeane Palfrey’s former company, Pamela Martin and Associates, was a prostitution service that was patronized by people high up on the American political totem pole (Montes, no pagination). Furthermore, Palfrey is in a position to ruin a lot of political careers. Her lawyer, Montgomery Blair Sibley, claims he has:

been contacted by five lawyers recently, asking whether their clients’ names are on Palfrey’s list of 10,000 to 15,000 phone numbers. Some, Sibley said, have inquired about whether accommodations could be made to keep their identities private. (No pagination)

The Palfrey scandal has already cost one person his job. Randall L. Tobias resigned from his position as deputy secretary of state after admitting to ABC’s Brian Ross that he was a client of Pamela Martin and Associates (no pagination). Deborah Jeane Palfrey is definitely in a position to blackmail the powerful and influential. This begs a question: Is Palfrey’s outfit part of an operation connected to the intelligence community that keeps politicians in line with the Establishment agenda through a system of sexual rewards and punishments?

In an interview with former NYPD detective James Rothstein, this author discovered that such operations do exist and go far back into America’s secret history. Rothstein is no conspiracy theorist. He is a legend in American law enforcement and speaks from experience. Furthermore, he gave me two notable examples from his time as a detective. Rothstein had an opportunity to have a sit-down with infamous McCarthy committee counsel Roy Cohn. During this sit-down, Cohn admitted to Rothstein that he was part of a rather elaborate sexual blackmail operation that compromised politicians with child prostitutes (Rothstein, no pagination). Cohn told Rothstein that this operation was being carried out as part of the anticommunist crusade of the time (no pagination).



The Cambodian Memory Hole

by Paul David Collins ©, April 27th, 2007

Cambodia has a serious problem. Many of the nation’s young people are having a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact that the Khmer Rouge conducted a campaign of genocide in their country. Some even deny that the genocide ever happened. This fact is revealed in a recent movie entitled Wanting To See The Truth, which “shows footage of young Cambodians who do not believe stories of the atrocities of the late 1970s” (“Khmer Rouge film reveals horror,” no pagination). Evidently, this epidemic of historical denial is promulgated on an institutional level because the “period is not taught in schools” (no pagination).

The danger of national amnesia that Cambodia is now facing is a result of the globalization of the postmodern paradigm. We all want to instantly grasp the “Big Picture” without taking the necessary trip down Memory Lane. A thorough study of history is the only way one can gain a firm understanding of modern realities. However, like children, we resist this fact with all our strength so that we might be able to live in a perpetual “now.” Even I find myself having to fight the urge and temptation to approach the topics I study as if they are videotapes that I can fast forward directly to the end.

The power elite have helped promote this sorry state of affairs. It helps conceal their involvement in history’s crimes and atrocities. The Cambodian “killing fields” are certainly no exception. The postmodern mind has difficulty seeing the bloody fingerprints of the power elite upon Cambodia during the period of 1975 to 1979. Nonetheless, those who bother to revisit the crime scene can discover these fingerprints.

NSSM 200: The Politics of Genocide

The motivation for the Cambodian genocide can be found in a document entitled National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM) 200. The National Security Council (NSC) under Henry Kissinger’s guidance put this document together in 1974. The thesis was quite simple: population growth in lesser-developed countries constitutes a threat to national security. NSSM 200 named target countries:



In Bed With the Enemy

by Paul David Collins ©, Sept. 28th, 2006

Huey Long once asserted that fascism would first appear in America as anti-fascism. Whether you consider the man to have been a hero or a tyrant, Long hit the nail on the head with this assertion. President George W. Bush recently characterized Arab terrorists as fascists. During a press conference held at his Texas ranch, Bush stated that the terrorists “try to spread their jihadist message – a message I call … Islamic radicalism, Islamic fascism” (Greene, no pagination). The President’s contention concerning Arab terrorists is, for the most part, correct. There is little difference between a radical Islamic fundamentalist and a goose-stepping Nazi. However, when one examines the American political landscape more closely, the tremendous hypocrisy of Bush’s statement becomes apparent. While denouncing Islamofascism in the public spotlight, criminal factions in the government are actually connected to the terrorists behind the scenes. Islamofascism is not merely the refuge of fanatics; it is a well-oiled, highly intricate, government-sponsored enterprise.

A key character connecting the government to the terrorist network is Grover Norquist. Norquist is a GOP/Bush operative who helped the President gain the support of Islamic people and organizations here in the United States. The Nation magazine referred to Norquist as “‘Field Marshal of the Bush Plan” (Gitell, no pagination). However, Norquist can be characterized as much more than just a Bush supporter. Grover Norquist is best described as the tie between the Administration and Islamists. Seth Gitell elaborates:

The Protestant Norquist is a founding director of the Islamic Institute, a socially conservative Muslim think tank that eschews international issues in favor of domestic issues such as tax cuts and faith-based initiatives. In addition, Norquist’s lobbying firm, Janus-Merritt Strategies LLC, was officially registered as a lobbyist for the Islamic Institute as well as for Abdurahman Alamoudi, the founder and former executive director of the American Muslim Council. Public records show that Alamoudi has done more than $20,000 worth of business with Norquist’s firm, on issues relating to Malaysia. (No pagination)
