In their own words re-visited

From Pete in response to recent Daily Pickings.

"It’s a bit long, but 95% of it is a range of historical quotes from six (i think) important books."


All boxed [boldings] are my additions, bolded words within paragraphs are my emphasis on existing words and not additions, my bold italics introduce each section and occasional comments. All links to quotes at the bottom.

1} British values, U.S. relations and NATO’s role – the Anglo-Saxon mission.

All quotes in section 1}, unless stated otherwise, are taken from “The Empire of the City” by Edwin C. Knuth.

The Five Ideologies of Space and Power in the latter part of the 19th century were;

1} the “One World” Ideology [Crown], 2} the “Pan-Slavic” Ideology [Russia] 3} “Asia for the Asiatics” [Japan/China] 4} “Pan-Germanism” and 5} Pan-American Isolationism.  

The principles and purposes of the British [Crown] Empire, the reasons for which it was conceived and for which were expended vast rivers of sweat and blood and tears in that process of building it by the sword, were laid down in these words by Benjamin Disraeli: "Gain and hold territories that possess the largest supplies of the basic raw materials. Establish naval base around the world to control the sea and commerce lanes. Blockade and starve into submission any nation or group of nations that opposes this empire control program."

The Machiavellian nature of the British [Crown] Government appears from a consideration of British [Crown] policy by Rear Admiral Charles L. Hussey in "The United States and Great Britain," published in 1932 for The Chicago Council on Foreign Relations by The University of Chicago Press, as follows (p. 171): "The British have no written policy, nor even a written constitution ... To undertake to outline British policy, an American must be both capable and daring. It seems the part of wisdom to turn to the British themselves for this. The editor of a British colonial weekly tersely stated it as follows: 'Britain is the workshop of the world. It lives by foreign trade, therefore, to secure and hold markets it must invest money abroad, acquire colonies and control the seas ... The world must be made safe, not for democracy — for that is only a word — but for trade and commerce. ... That is the national policy of the British people [*IS IT?], of both Liberals and Conservatives. It forms the background of all British [Crown] thinking. It is not openly stated, as there is a trace of Oriental secrecy and reticence in England. It is not considered good form to shout one's beliefs from the house-tops." (pg 80/81)

*see section 4} second elephant

Despite the fact that he [Viscount Reginald Esher] was for forty years one of the most powerful statesmen in all the world, his actual position was very obscure, and his name was utterly unknown and has remained unknown to the American public. In a hearing before the Committee on Foreign Relations of the United States Senate on January 28, 1940, it was developed that his whole position was derived from the fact that he was the most secret confidant and counsel of the "monarchy;" and it is quite apparent that by the term "monarchy" there is here meant the "King-in-Council" or Crown; or in other words the City and International Finance.

Geopolitics, the study of the struggle for space and power,( by Robert Strausz-Hupé 1942) forms a well-developed science with an extensive bibliography, which conclusively impeaches the superficial fabrication, with which the American people in particular have been implanted with consummate cunning, that the great World Wars are caused by brutal attacks upon world law and order, instead of being the fully anticipated consequences of the most diabolical double dealing and planning by the secret "One World" order of "The City."

It is quite evident there is again an entente cordiale existing between the two governments which the people know nothing about; an agreement in violation of any principle of open covenants openly arrived at; an agreement without sanction of the people of the United States or of their representatives in Congress. This would appear in part from a speech at Indianapolis by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox on October 1, 1941, in which he stated that the "great peace-minded, justice-loving" powers the United States and Great Britain — which are "lacking in any desire for personal aggrandizement" must join forces for at least 100 years to produce "by force if need be" an effective system of international law. He went on to say that the British and American navies "ARE sweeping the German pirates from the North Atlantic" and "eventually we shall lock Nazi Germany up in an iron ring, and within that ring of sea-power she shall perish."

Mr. Lea's great work, "The Day of The Saxon," was first published in 1912 in very limited edition, and was republished in 1942 by Harper & Brothers. It can be said to form a major book of the Internationlist "Bible", and is one of the very few works on Internationalism that treats this usually deliberately distorted subject with scholarly candor, being particularly designed for the enlightenment of the elect. The following paragraphs are selected from Chapter II of this book:

"The character of the British Dominion is different from any of the great empires that have preceded it. It not only consists of one-fourth of the land surface, but the suzerainty of the Five Seas. . . . That British rule should, in various degrees of sovereignty exercise its dominion over seventeen-twentieths of the world's surface is significant of just that degree of repression towards all other nations, their rights and expansion by land or by sea.

"Peace and its duration, like war, is determined by natural laws that in their fundamental principles do not vary nor are found wanting.

"In conformity to these laws we find that the future peace of the Empire stands in decreasing ratio and must so continue until it is either destroyed or reaches a point of world dominance.

"There can be no retention of present British sovereignty without the repression of the territorial and political expansion of other nations—a condition that must culminate in war, one war if the Empire is destroyed; a series if it is victorious.

"In this epoch of war upon which the Empire is about to enter, hopes of peace are futile; constitutions and kings and gods are without avail, for these are the old, old struggles that govern the growth and dissolution of national life."

“Empire of the City” (pg 6)

"The Day of The Saxon" BOOK I introduction statement;

It is a law of nature common to all mankind, which no time shall annul or destroy, that those who have more strength and excellence shall bear rule over those who have less. DIONYSIUS.

[The eugenicists’ call to arms?]

To understand the true significance of an empire as vast and fragile as that of the Saxon one must have no fixed opinions concerning its military progression, but must, on the other hand, make the acquisition of such knowledge the basic principle of his patriotism.

The Saxon has marked around this earth, as has no other race before him, the scarlet circle of his power. This thin, red Saxon line, so thin with his numbers, so red with his blood, was made possible only by his heroism [terrorism] and racial fealty [arrogance]. Where this line has not gone man has not found. It has crossed every sea ; it has traversed every desert ; it has sought every solitude; it has passed through swamps where only the sacred ibis fishes; over sands that have never been moistened; over snows that have never melted.

There has been no storm it has not encountered, no pain it has not endured; no race it has not fought, and no disease it has not contended with. This Saxon line has been to the earth a girdle tragic and heroic, binding within itself all the old and great places of the world.

"The Day of The Saxon" by Homer Lea (1912)

2} Why Israel is supported, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the welfare of the Jewish people. 
11th August, 1840, lord Palmerston wrote a letter to the British ambassador in Constantinople, Henry Posonby. Palmerston wrote: “There exists at the present time among the jews dispersed over Europe, the strong notion that the time is approaching when their nation is to return to Palestine. It would be of manifest importance to the sultan to encourage the jews to return and to settle in Palestine because the wealth which they would bring with them would increase the resources of the Sultan’s dominions; and the jewish people if returning under the sanction and protection and at the invitation of the Sultan, would be a check upon any future evil designs of Mohammed Ali or his successor. I have to instruct Your Excellency strongly to recommend to the Turkish government to hold out every just encouragement to the Jews of Europe to return to Palestine.

Another influential of parliament who promoted the cause of Restoration was Lawrence Oliphant (1829-1888)…

Oliphant published a book in 1880 called the “Land of Gilead”, which not only summarized the main arguments in favour of Restoration, but also described a settlement scheme for Jewish immigrants under British protection within Turkish sovereignty. Oliphant urged the British parliament to help the Russian and eastern European Jews to emigrate to Palestine. He further recommended the expulsion of the Bedouins and the Palestinians from Palestine and their resettlement on reservations resembling those of Native Americans.    

The Restoration of Israel: Christian Zionism in Religion, Literature, and Politics by Gerhard Falk-2006 (page 18)

"My Eastern project is as follows: To obtain a concession from the Turkish Government in the northern and more fertile half of Palestine, which the recent survey of the Palestine Exploration Fund proves to be capable of immense development. Any amount of money can be raised upon it, owing to the belief which people have that they would be fulfilling prophecy and bringing on the end of the world. I don't know why they are so anxious for this latter event, but it makes the commercial speculation easy, as it is a combination of the financial and sentimental elements which will, I think, ensure success. And it will be a good political move for the Government, as it will enable them to carry out reforms in Asiatic Turkey, provide money for the Porte, and by uniting the French in it, and possibly the Italians, be a powerful religious move against the Russians, who are trying to obtain a hold of the country by their pilgrims. It would also secure the Government a large religious support in this country, as even the Radicals would waive their political in favour of their religious crotchets. I also anticipate a very good subscription in America. I shall probably start about the end of the year for Egypt, as I want to look into the working of the mixed jurisdiction, and then go to Cyprus, Syria, Palestine, and Constantinople. I suppose I shall find plenty to write about, but I do not want it all talked of, though I find it difficult to keep it quiet. Both Lord Beaconsfield and Lord Salisbury are very favourable to my scheme."



BY MAEGAEET OLIPHANT W. OLIPHANT - The Eastern Project. pg 285

The bolded section in the above 1878 correspondence from Oliphant to Henry Wentworth Monk (the Prophet) is also quoted in chapter 23 of “The Controversy of Zion” by Douglas Reed, 1956 – where he adds this footnote;

Oliphant touched on an interesting point. One interpretation of the numerous prophecies is that the end of the world will follow the “return” of the Jews to Palestine, so that the folk who promote this migration presume even to determine the moment when Jehovah shall bring the planet to an end. The mystification expressed by Oliphant was felt by a perplexed French politician at the Peace Conference of 1919, who asked Mr. Balfour why he was so eager to bring about “the return” of the Jews to Palestine; if this truly was the fulfilment of prophecy, then prophecy also decreed that the end of the world would follow. Mr. Balfour replied languidly. “Precisely, that is what makes it all so very interesting.”

3} A quick glance at why the Russians are vilified and how they’re viewed by the Crown:

As is usual, the real reasons for this very probable and nearby war are easily kept submerged because the truculence, insolence and contempt with which Russia has forestalled and checkmated the "One World" designs, with which she has had an intimate acquaintance over 130 years, fits perfectly into the sham posture of bruised democracy and violated decency. - “Empire of the City” (pg 7)

That acquaintance is now around 200 years as this “Great Game” continues

"It is not the business of Great Britain to dictate to established Governments, or to go to war with them for the better regulation of their internal affairs. Nor is it the business of a British Government to refuse to make agreements with any foreign Government for the management of matters in which they are jointly concerned. But it is the duty of a British Government not to corrupt its own people by involving itself intimately with a Government whose methods are not only different but are utterly alien from its own. An alliance with France is bad only in so far as it is turned into a combination against Germany. An alliance with Russia is in itself unnatural and horrible." (page 367.)

4} The two elephants;

First elephant,
Warren Buffett said in 2006 “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

In Class Warfare, Guess Which Class Is Winning, by Ben Stein New York Times Published: November 26, 2006 -

Poisoning of the food, of the air, of the ground water by fracking and many other deliberate attacks on the basic fundamentals for life, clearly evidence who this war is aimed at, although no viable opposition to these acts of war can be mobilized until we address what is stated below:

*Second elephant,

But the arms merchant does not see himself as a villain, according to his lights he is simply a businessman who sells is wares under prevailing business practices. The uses to which his products are put and the results of his traffic are apparently no concern of his, no more than they are, for instance, of an automobile salesman. Thus there are many naive statements of arms makers which show their complete indifference about anything related to their industry save financial success. One British arms manufacturer, for instance, compared his enterprise to that of a house-furnishing company which went so far as to encourage matrimony to stimulate more purchases of house furnishings. The arms maker felt that he, too, was justified in promoting his own particular brand of business.

Neither of these two points of view the average man’s accusation and the arms maker’s defense is an adequate statement of the issues involved. One may be horrified by the activities of an industry which thrives on the greatest of human curses; still it is well to acknowledge that the arms industry did not create the war system. On the contrary, the war system created the arms industry. And our civilization which, however reluctantly, recognizes war as the final arbiter in international disputes, is also responsible for the existence of the arms maker.

Who, to be specific, has the power to declare war? All constitutions in the world (except the Spanish) vest the war-making power in the government or in the representatives of the people. They further grant the power to conscript man-power to carry on such conflicts. Why is there no ethical revolt against these constitutions? Governments also harbor and foster forces like nationalism and chauvinism, economic rivalry and exploiting capitalism, territorial imperialism and militarism. Which is the most potent for war, these elements or the arms industry? The arms industry is undeniably a menace to peace, but it is an industry to which our present civilization clings and for which it is responsible.

It is an evidence of the superficiality of many peace advocates that they should denounce the arms industry and accept the present state of civilization which fosters it Governments today spend approximately four and a half billion dollars every year to maintain their war machines. This colossal sum is voted every year by representatives of the people. There are, of course, some protests against these enormous military outlays and a handful of individuals carry their protest so far as to refuse to render military service and to pay taxes. But by and large it is believed that “national security” demands these huge appropriations. The root of the trouble, therefore, goes far deeper than the arms industry. It lies in the prevailing temper of peoples toward nationalism, militarism, and war, in the civilization which forms this temper and prevents any drastic and radical change. Only when this underlying basis of the war system is altered, will war and its concomitant, the arms industry, pass out of existence.

“Merchants of Death” by H.C. Engelbrecht and F.C. Hanighen 1934 (pg 8/9)

Two things jump out from the above statements, firstly how the geo-political events of today are quite obviously a continuation of those earlier stated ideals, the players have changed but the song remains the same, as the saying goes, “Same meat, different gravy”.

And secondly, that control of trade and trade routes is, and continues to be, the primary motive. This aspect is mainly glossed over or thought unimportant as it raises the uncomfortable question of our participation in political systems that are still to this day, in the 21st Century!!!, build upon foundations of death and theft.

And although we the people of “developed societies” the so called “civilised world” are not soaked in innocent blood as are high finance, religion or the state [especially their enforcement arms], but our silence, our compliance and our tendency to turn a blind eye to a war crime or a bit of child labour here, some pollution there, for a designer brand or some new gadget, means that we use that same blood to finger paint our own lives.

That last point may come over as a bit harsh, but if we are unable to discuss difficult consequences in a grown up manner so as to discover the causes, we are destined to blindly stumble through this labyrinth of effects, - which has been meticulously constructed, lie upon lie, over thousands of years -, in perpetual frustration as nothing makes sense or in fear awaiting the next bogie man construct [Putin?] that leads us into the next war to “End all Wars”.

If you made it down here, i hope you found it useful, and thank you for your time,
