CLAUDE MONTEFIORE - ATHOL BLOOMER - ASSOCIATION OF HEBREW CATHOLICS - BRIT AM
Antelman speaks of Montefiore saying:
Claude Montefiore...[was] an ultra Reform "rabbi" who subscribed to Marxist Illuminist principles. Claude was a scion of the House of Montefiore, a grand nephew of Sir Moses Montefiore...who fought against Reform and was a religiously observant Jew. Claude was also the great grandson of Mayer Amschel Rothschild whose daughter Henrietta married Moses Montefiore's brother, Abraham. Moses' wife Judy (nee Cohen) had a sister, Hannah, who married Nathan Mayer Rothschild...of London. It was Claude who would, with Schechter as his high priest, initiate Schechter into his ultimate life's destiny....
Montefiore's coordinator with the Illuminati was Platonist Benjamin Jewett who was busy liberalizing Christianity. Jewett recruited Montefiore to communicate Jewish source material which he could twist as interpreter of Judaism to the Christian world. Jewett was founder of the "Broad Church" movement in England, and directly influenced the radicals Asquinth, Grey and Curzon. A ploy that they utilized to undermine religious authority was the promotion of the concept of "moral relativism", which was abetted by Sir James G. Frazer's works.
Montefiore and Israel Abrahams launched in 1888 the Jewish Quarterly Review, which acts as a repository to this very day of articles dealing with Jewish subject matter written in academic summary style. Schechter later transplanted the Review to the United States.
Of all the goals of the Illuminati, it appears that Claude Montefiore was most preoccupied with the Illuminati's goal of merging religions, and more particularly Judaism and Christianity. (p. 147-148)
Susanna remembered from previous research that involved the Association of Hebrew Catholics that AHC member Athol Bloomer claimed to be a member of the Montefiore family.
Bloomer was a speaker at a havurah at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Jacksonville, Florida:
Our first guest speaker was David Moss, who talked on the topic of the Association of Hebrew Catholics and Jews in the Catholic Church. This attracted an audience of some 150 persons, including Bishop Galeone. Subsequent speakers were Athol Bloomer, who addressed a joint meeting of our ministry and the Eucharist Adoration Society. This attracted an audience of some 80 persons.
In his blog, Bloomer writes:
Both my parents are descendants of the Montefiore family of Barbados. My mothers maternal great grandparents Anne and Michael were both relatives of the Montefiore family and worked for them when they first came to Australia. Michael was employed by Joseph Barrow Montefiore firstly in Adelaide then London and then Melbourne. Michael's grandmother was Esther (Johanna) Montefiore of Barbados a cousin of Joseph Barrow Montefiore. Esther took the name Johanna when she converted to Catholic on her marriage to Captain John Walsh of Barbados. Joseph Barrow Montefiore was a first cousin of Sir Moses Montefiore of London. Michael's wife Anne was a great grandaughter of Juan Rodriguez Galvan and Maria Leon Galvan both born in Tamaulipas region of Mexico of cypto Jewish families who came to London via the Carribean in about 1790 and they joined the Sephardi Jewish community in London. They were descendants of the famous Carvajal family who suffered in the auto-de -fe of 1596 in Mexico City. Anne's father Edward (Efrayim) Ennis was a secret crypto Jewish Rabbi in Athlone Ireland. Edward's father had also been a merchant in Barbados in the 1820's. Edward Ennis's cousin Sir John Ennis Bt 's wife Lady Ennis was the matriarch and benefactress of the crypto Jewish community of Athlone. This community could be called Hebrew Catholic as they were strongly influenced by the Frankists. Edward Ennis's mother Mary Coffey was a daughter of Hannah Mayer of a Frankist family and a cousin of Joseph Wolff. Hannah Mayer was the sister of Esther Mayer ( the mother of Joseph Wolff) who married Rabbi David Wolff of Bavaria.
Their brother Joseph Mayer lived in England and was involved in the Orthodox Jewish community there. Two of his grandsons were converted by the London Jew's Society and became Anglican priests. John Montefiore's son Thomas Law montefiore also became an Anglican priest. Joseph Wolff after being an evangelist for the London Jew's Society also in later life became an Anglican priest.
It appears to me from this association that within the Hebrew Catholic movement Roman Catholics have embraced the very heresy of Sabbatian-Frankism that Antelman condemns so vigorously. Granted there have been changes along the way. This is most likely not the same heresy it was in the 17th century. Yet it still sets the mind spinning to contemplate what is taking place! The Illuminati, it would appear, are within our midst.
Bloomer has taken down his posts which I have linked in the past. Presumably these will go down as well as soon as he knows I have them. Perhaps Brit Am will be less hasty in removing evidence:

I found it interesting about the link with Naphtali and Finland as I have always thought that some of Naphtali were in the North in Finland and Scandinavia and the others in central Europe especially among the Hungarians and Austrians.
One of my ancestral uncles Jacob Montefiore was a Jewish supporter of the British Israel movement in the 19th century when the movement was pro Zionist. I believe he was one of the leaders of the movement in those days along with Colonel Gawler the Governor of South Australia. Jacob was a first cousin to Sir Moses Montefiore and the brother of Joseph Barrow Montefiore a founder of the Jewish communities of Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne. Jacob's brother John Montefiore was my ancestral grandfather and he became an Anglican and was involved in both the Hebrew Christian movement and the British Israel movement. In those early days many of the British Israelites were also connected to the Hebrew Christians. The first Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem was the former Rabbi of Norwich, Norfolk who was a close friend and supporter of John Wilson and presided over some of the first British Israelite meetings in England. Many of the gentry and aristocratic families that supported British Israel had some Jewish ancestry.
TO ELIMINATE THE OPIATE - by Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman
"The Divine and Profane Faces of Zionism"
Instead of reading like "us against them", this chapter reads more like "us against us". It, more than any other, seems to expose the deep disparity within Judaism. There are many passages consisting entirely of quotes which I'm not going to post here. However, there are also a few things worth noting:
Antelman calls "Theodore Herzl--the founder of the modern Zionist movement..." (p. 158)
He tells us:
Jewish law explicitly states that ultimately the wife determines where the couple is to reside; it mandates that the prevailing issue here is mandatory residence in Israel, and if the party refuses, it is grounds for divorce with the onus being on the recalcitrant spouse.(p. 159)
What is censored from establishment history books is that disciples of the Gaon of Vilna (1720-1797) had already engaged, at the turn of the 18th century, in the active colonization of Zion.(p. 161)
One passage is headlined: "Will the Real Zionism Please Stand Up! Religious Zionism versus Bogus Socialistic Conspiratorial Zionism". (p. 162)
In 1973, the Central Committee of the Bulgarian Communist Party received an appeal from the Israeli Communist Party asking for its "solidarity in the struggle against Israeli aggression and her policy of annexation, and asks all Communists to "fight for Palestinian liberation".(p. 168)
In a Declaration quoted from the transactions of the Supreme Rabbinic Court of America, Inc., 1401 Arcola Avenue, Silver Springs, MD 20902: "Israel shall reaffirm its duty to judge the foreigners, especially those who dwell within its boundaries and seek to destroy its people from within." (p. 176)
Antelman speaks of an
Illuminati cell in Israel that the author witnessed on television and read about in the Israeli papers.Inside Israel:
In May of 1996, residents of a Tel Aviv neighborhood allegedly complained to police about noise emanating from an apartment. Police, under circumstances not yet clear, entered the apartment with a reporter and found a rather unusual scene. According to the newsletter
The walls were covered with Latin script. Skull and bones graced the shelves, swords crossed and not were mounted above an altar. Five doors led to secret passageways, with red blinking lights signaling whoever was within, that intruders were present.
In the brief and slightly publicized aftermath of the raid, a flurry of stories appeared about the influence of Masons and their role in the peace process, which is unpopular among large segments of Israel's population. Masons were initially blamed for the apartment and its cult-like decor.
It turns out that President Clinton, King Hussein of Jordan, and the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin were all Masons and Masonic officials played a major role in facilitating a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan....
But their Grand Master in Israel issued a statement denying that the weird apartment had anything to do with Masonry. He actually claimed that the apartment was rented by a cult called the "Illuminati", which had nothing to do with Freemasonry, and demanded a public apology from the newspaper that broke the story....
In October of 1995, the Italian publication La Republica reported on the hold Masonry has over Israel's government. It turns out that the former Mayor of Jerusalem, Ted Kollek, is also a Mason, whose last year in office witnessed a meeting between him and David Rockefeller for the purported reason of establishing a branch of Chase Manhattan in Jerusalem....
The Illuminati has a kind of precursor, known as the "Sabbatian" movement. Historically, Sabbatians have been involved in radical, and Masonic-type movements. Others were prominent in finance in nineteenth century Europe....
...they practice wife swapping...
Sabbatian emissaries recently visited Jerusalem and asked to be allowed to reunite with the Jewish people from whom they split in the seventeenth century....
...not one word has been heard about the Illuminati apartment or Masonic controversy in any American news publication.
In any event, for those who question the truthfulness of the existence of the Illuminati conspiracy, new evidence has emerged which may finally set the record straight.(p. 187-190)
That was the last sentence in the chapter. He does not continue this chapter by exposing the information he references.

TO ELIMINATE THE OPIATE by Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman
"Solomon "Sheker" Master of Disinformation"
Sheker in Hebrew means "deceit", and this can be applied to Solomon Shechter, (1847-1915), the Marxist Frankist boy-wonder disciple of Jellinek, Weiss and company, upon whom America's so-called "Jewish Conservative movement" was built. His admirers stated he was its "chief architect"....
The conspiracy to implant the Conservative movement in America was masterminded by the Illuminati and implemented by Austrian, English and American Frankists. (p. 143)
Antelman lists eleven points that comprised the agenda by which this goal was accomplished. Three are particularly noteworthy.
4. Develop a disinformation network to spread lies about Judaism, especially that Judaism has branches, or streams.(p. 144)
5. Promote the dissolution of the purity of the Halachic family by sabotaging the divorce procedures to produce proliferate illegitimate offspring; and the conversion procedures to promote "gentiles" into the Jewish community.
8. Develop an organized phony rabbinical society.
11. Direct a campaign of libel against religious Jews and their practices to discredit them as not "modern", and out of touch with the times.
Did this thinking influence Vatican II? As with No. 5, our divorce procedures were compromised through the introduction of easy annulments. Illegitimate offspring have been the result of silence on moral teachings combined with a promotion of sex education in Catholic schools. Our system for conversions was revised at Vatican II.
How similar to this "phony rabbinical society" is the bishop's conference where conservative, traditional, and liberal bishops came together to present a "united" face to the nation? It was made clear to us that those who still held to our Tradition were "out of touch" following Vatican II.
Schechter was given a "scholarly" image and eventually was appointed the head of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, originally an authentic Jewish Rabbinic institution that was pirated by the American Frankists under Jacob Schiff's leadership and debased to its present state.(p. 145)
Antelman says Schechter "kept a picture of" the "Communist Sabbatian Frankist, Leopold Zunz" "in his study, and considered him his godfather." (p. 147)
Platonist Benjamin Jewett who was busy liberalizing Christianity...recruited [Claude] Montefiore to communicate Jewish source material which he could twist as interpreter of Judaism to the Christian world. Jewett was founder of the "Broad Church" movement in England, and directly influenced the radicals Asquinth, Grey and Curzon. A ploy that they utilized to undermine religious authority was the promotion of the concept of "moral relativism", which was abetted by Sir James G. Frazer's works.(pp. 147-148)
What does Benedict fight today? That very moral relativism.
Of all the goals of the Illuminati, it appears that Claude Montefiore was most preoccupied with the Illuminati's goal of merging religions, and more particularly, Judaism and Christianity.(p. 148)
From the time Schechter came to the United States, most of the Seminary faculty indulged in disinformation. They are more dangerous than the Reform because they put on the facade of being religious, cloaking their pronouncements with a veil of authenticity as if conforming to Halacha. (p. 153)
The Consrvative movement perpetrates the lie that they are a branch of Judaism when, indeed, they are anti-Judaic. Their members are, nevertheless, invariably Jews. The problem is that since their conversions are fraudulent, counterfeit rabbis take authentic Christians and convert them to counterfeit Jews....Perhaps more accurately their members are duped into being "Jews for Satan". Incidentally, Schechter, like Karl Marx, sported a dual-shaped beard popular among Satanists.
Every Conservative tract read by this author in the last 30 years is replete with deceit and disinformation... (p. 154)
Antelman claims that the Conservatives:
...law committee left it to individual "rabbis" to determine whether lesbians and gay men can be active youth leaders and teachers in the movement, and there is a responsum accepted by the movement that maintains that engaging in homosexual behavior is not an abomination....Their women's organization supports abortion on demand.(p. 155)
Another similarity with Catholicism since Vatican II:
The duplicity of the Conservative movement gave rise to a multiplicity of responsa. For example, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ruled that a Conservative cleric is prohibited when entering an authentic synagogue from leading the service in responsive prayer which ordinary laymen commonly do.(p. 156)
And one more recent development in Roman Catholicism seems to have a counterpart in Judaism:
...it was discovered that key figures at the Seminary were advocating actual idolatry, and were involved with Eastern religions.(p. 156)
SHROUDED FINANCES IN CLEVELAND
For those of you keeping tabs on the shenanigans in the Cleveland Diocese, National Catholic Reporter offers an update:
Santiago “Charlie” Feliciano spent two decades working as an in-house lawyer for the Cleveland diocese. When he finally left in 2000, he had been the general counsel, Bishop Anthony Pilla’s main legal adviser, for 16 years.
Feliciano held one of the top posts in the diocese’s Financial and Legal Office. Yet, talk to Feliciano and he’ll tell you how large swaths of diocesan finance remained a mystery to him.
He paints a picture of himself as a man who was inside, but really on the outside. Someone who should have known the details of questionable schemes then being cultivated -- schemes that later mushroomed into the ugliest diocesan-level money scandal to hit American Catholicism in decades.
But Feliciano says he didn’t know.
“They never let me anywhere near a checkbook,” he said....
In Cleveland, Feliciano was cut out of policy meetings, where he might have expressed legal opinions about the imprudence of self-dealing or other questionable executive compensation practices. “They should have regularly run things by me, but they chose not to,” he said.
The Cleveland scandal, now approaching its last act in federal court, involves Pilla and other top diocesan officials, one of whom, Anton Zgoznik, was convicted last year in federal court and another, former chief financial officer Joseph Smith, who faces his own trial later this year.
It was only after Feliciano left the diocese that another insider mailed a stack of financial documents to Cleveland media -- the proverbial smoking gun. It was then, said Feliciano, that he started to get a clear picture of the embezzlement that had been happening more or less under his nose.
If it seems a bit peculiar for a top church insider to be that out of the loop concerning church finances, what can the average parishioner expect to know about the finances of an institution where virtually all control is in the hands of local bishops and the diocese is largely exempt from publicly disclosing its financial operations to the Internal Revenue Service?
Yet despite all of this dishonesty, I'd bet that the Catholic Charities collection will be larger than ever in Cleveland this year. It won't, however, include any of my cash. I sought out a bishop I thought I could trust and sent the funds there. I wish more Catholics would do the same to send a message up north. Money is the only thing that gets their attention.

BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY
Is Liberation Theology, that political darling of the leftist Catholic, anathema within the faith, acceptable within our modern political structure?
The question becomes pertinent when considering recent revelations of the belief of O'Bama's Rev. Wright, who, it would seem, is an American black liberationist.
Blogger Russell Wilcox spells it out:
For the left, black liberation theology makes for close to a perfect faith. It is a political creed larded with religion. It serves not to reconcile and unite blacks with the larger cultural, but to keep them separate. Here, again, The Washington Post reports that "He [Wright] translated the Bible into lessons about...the misguided pursuit of ‘middle-classness.'"
Not very Martin Luther King-ish. Further, all the kooky talk about the government infecting blacks with HIV is a fine example of how the left will promote a lie to nurture alienation and grievance. To listen to Wright -- more an apostle of the left than the Christian church -- the model for blacks is alienation, deep resentment, separation and grievance. All of which leads to militancy. Militancy is important. It's the sword dangled over the head of society. Either fork over more tax dollars, government services and patronage or else. And unlike the Reverend Moss and his kindred, I'll specify the "else." Civil unrest. Disruptions in cities. Riot in the streets.
I doubt that things have come to such a pass in the U.S. that a large number of Americans will go to the ballot box to vote for riot in the streets. Yet is that what the voters for O'Bama are actually doing?
God grant that we may never have to find out!
Dreher wades in:
The more you know about Jeremiah Wright, the more appalling he is. Spengler today digs up a televised interview between Wright and Sean Hannity in which Wright upbraided Hannity for not having read the black liberation theologian James Cone, with whom Wright identifies. Who is James Cone? He's the theologian who wrote this:Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.
Wow. Either God wants to destroy white people, or He is not worthy of worship. This is racist idolatry.
For a description of Black Liberation Theology check out this website and try to imagine how the black liberationists see white folks fitting in.
M. L. RODKINSON
Yesterday I posted Rabbi Antelman's quote concerning the Rodkinson translation of the Talmud, to wit:
Until the first comprehensive English translation of the Talmud by Soncino Press appeared (1935-1952); a non-comprehensive translation of M. L. Rodkinson was the only one in existence. Most scholars utilizing his works were unaware that he was a sinister personality whose primary efforts to render portions of the Talmud into English was for the purpose ofdisinformation and for providing gist for anti-Semitic attacks on Jewry via careful distortion of selected words and mis-translation of Talmudic passages, and facilitating their use out of context....
Rodkinson edited a Hebrew paper...whose purpose was to convert Jews to Christianity. One of Rodkinson's Hebrew works reiterated the insidious "Blood Libel" that Jews utilized Christian blood to bake matzot for Passover.
Susanna has unearthed an article from the 1897 Volume V journal "The Bookman" which contains an article by Jewish Scholar Richard Gottheil which makes a similar claim:
THE BABYLONIAN TALMUD
"No work in the literature in the world has had so unfortunate a history as has the Talmud. It has suffered from blandiloquence, on the one hand, and traducement on the other. It has remained for Mr. M.L. Rodkinson to fill its cup to the brim by making it the object of a mystification. the title-page promises to the subscribers the "original text edited, formulated, and punctuated;" and the preface explains the somewhat unintelligible word "formulated" to mean the excision of all "irrelevant matter" and all "accretions."
This is hanging out false colors. The accompanying prospectus excites the expectation of "an exhaustive, systematic, and philologically accurate text." this is wilfully throwing sand in the eyes of people to whom the text itself is a sealed book. Mr. Rodkinson's previously published pamphlets - which he grandiloquently describes in the prospectus as "twenty-two published theological works" - show that his early training has been such as to rob him of the very faculty of appreciating the first principles of philological work. to have studied the Talmud as a purely religious exercise - even for forty years - does not necessarily make a man a Talmudic scholar. The excision of "irrelevant matter" does not lead to an "original" text; the irrelevant may be as original as the relevant. The canon of Mr. Rodkinson's judgement as between what is original and what is added, is based on nothing but the whim of Mr. Rodkinson's moments. It is pure fancy. In preforming these acrobatic feats of jumping from one passage to another, Mr. Rodkinson has obliterated the true character of the Talmud, as certainly as he has misstated its theological point of view when he says that "it knows no authority but conscience and reason. It is the bitterest enemy of all superstition and all fanaticism"
[pp.69-70, bolding mine]
The website Internet Sacred Text Archive has a copy of the Rodkinson translation of The Babylonian Talmud online. I didn't see any alternative translation in the website, though admittedly I didn't look very hard.

SATANIC RITUAL RAPE
A former Shepherd man convicted in 1989 of raping a 13-year-old girl during a satanic ritual pleaded guilty Monday in District Court to a sexual offense against another, younger girl. He was then released from the Yellowstone County jail.
Leon Lloyd Whitcher, 48, pleaded guilty to a felony sex offense against the younger girl between 1987 and 1989. The allegations surfaced in 2005, a year after Whitcher was released from the Montana State Prison on probation for the rape of the older girl....
In 1989, Whitcher was found guilty at trial of raping a 13-year-old girl during what the victim described as a satanic ritual. The girl said she was given alcohol, forced to wear a black robe and lie on a pentagram painted on the floor of a house owned by Whitcher outside Shepherd....
A similar story of sexual abuse surfaced in 2005, when a victim came forward and accused Whitcher of similar satanic rituals accompanied by sexual abuse and rape. The victim said she was abused over a two-year period beginning when she was 7 years old. The abuse included being forced to dance naked on a star painted on the floor as Whitcher watched while wearing a black robe.

NEW ZEALAND MAN ACCUSED OF THE SAME THING
A 53-year-old man who assaulted his two daughters over a period of 10 years, claiming he was possessed by the Devil, was sentenced to seven years in jail today.
The man appeared in Wellington District Court on four charges of unlawful sexual conduct, two charges of indecent assault, two of assault with a blunt instrument and three single charges of assault.
The court was told the man had indecently assaulted one daughter from 1997 when she was aged six until September last year.
Here's the article.
JOHN ALLEN ON CATHOLIC TRENDS
DENVER, Colo. (Denver Catholic Register) - In a fact-filled talk in Denver on March 4, journalist-author John Allen spoke about mega-trends facing the Church and tied them to Pope Benedict XVI’s upcoming U.S. visit. The pope will visit Washington D.C. and New York City April 15-20.
Allen is the Vatican correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, and also a CNN correspondent. He spoke before a sizeable crowd of 250 people in Bonfils Hall at the John Paul II Center. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., invited Allen, a close friend, to speak.

"TO ELIMINATE THE OPIATE" by Marvin S. Antelman
"The 'Conservative' Frankists of Vienna"
Until the first comprehensive English translation of the Talmud by Soncino Press appeared (1935-1952); a non-comprehensive translation by M. L. Rodkinson was the only one in existence. Most scholars utilizing his works were unaware that he was a sinister personality whose primary efforts to render portions of the Talmud into English was for the purpose ofdisinformation and for providing grist for anti-Semitic attacks on Jewry via careful distortion of selected words and mis-translation of Talmudic passages, and facilitating their use out of context. (p. 131)
Antelman describes Rodkinson as one of the men enlisted by the "Sabbatian Frankists conspirators of Vienna" to do their "dirty work". (p. 131)
Rodkinson lived a Frankist existence. He changed religions, forged passports and was chased by the police for fraud and forgery. His real name was M. I. Frumkin, but he used many aliases. Rodkinson edited a Hebrew paper calledHaChozeh whose purpose was to convert Jews to Christianity. One of Rodkinson's Hebrew works reiterated the insidious "Blood Libel" that Jews utilized Christian blood to bake matzot for Passover....
This libelous information was widely circulated in Austria but did not prevent, in the words of Bloch, "prominent personalities of the Viennese congregation" to kindly receive Rodkinson. This group of "prominent personalities", of course, were the Frankist Sabbatians, who included Adolf Jellineck and Emmanuel Baumgarten. (p. 132)
Adolf Jellinek was a preacher in the Leipzig synagogue established by the Sabbatian-Frankist Zechariah Frankel. He was also the main teacher of Solomon Schecter who became founder of the American "Conservative" heresy of Judaism and its bastard counterpart of Israel, theMasorati cult. (p. 135)
A prominent financier of Rodkinson's operations was Baron Albert Roth[s]child....
What emerges from a close inspection of Viennese Jewry in the latter part of the 19th century is that its establishment is controlled by a Sabbatian Frankist underground, who through their influence on the infrastructure of the community and its media, could orchestrate innocent Jews into supporting their "causes". (p. 136-137)
Emanuel M. Baumgarten (1828-1908)....conspired in the crypto-Frankist attempt to develop their own "scholars" who would break the back of authentic Judaism. The Frankists achieved this through their nefarious institution (founded 1862) with the distinguished Hebrew title for a house of study "Bet HaMidrash". Among his top cohorts in the Bet HaMidrash were Isaac Hirsch Weiss and the Bet HaMidrash's founder, Adolf Jellinek....Jellinek (1820-1893) was a Moravian Sabbatian Frankist. Proof for his Frankism rests in correspondence between Jellinek and Sabbatian Aaron Chorin's ordained disciple, the Hungarian cleric Leopold Lowe (1811-1875), discovered by Professor Gershom Scholem, which he expounded in a lecture...at Boston's Hebrew College on November 30, 1975. The correspondence was loaded with Sabbatian-Frankist metaphor of a typical antinomian revolutionary character reflected in both their personal deeds. Lowe was a Marxist activist and agitated mobs against the Hungarian government.
Jellinek arrived in Prague in 1838 and worked in the revolutionary conspiracies with other Frankist Communists such as Michael J. Sachs (1808-1864) and Wolfgang Wessely (1801-1870). Sachs succeeded Leopold Zunz (Moses Hess' cousin) as head of the Prague Frankists...Jellinek promoted the Illuminist goals of destroying religions and formed the Kirchlicher Verein (church society) with Christian clergymen. It was a radical religious society aimed at destroying religious and moral values. (p. 137-138)
BEAR STEARNS BUYOUT
Here's an article at Portfolio.com describing the deal that was put together at lightning speed and the anticipated lawsuits that will follow in the months to come. I'll be the first to admit I don't understand it all, but there is a nagging sense of dealmongering that smacks of privileged information akin to insider trading. We are expected to believe that an unprecedented deal could be brokered within hours. Who shot the adrenalin into the government's normally sluggish veins?
It appears we are destined to emerge from the mortgage meltdown with fewer players on the financial stage, and a greater concentration of wealth. It's an unsettling thought to me because I have just been reading an article in the March "Culture Wars" by economist Rupert J. Ederer titled "A Return to Monetary Economics". In it he talks about "commercial banks which are private corporations operating for the profit of their stockholders [who] are responsible of upwards of 80 percent of our money supply."
Ederer blames Reagan (whose understanding of economics "was not his strong suit") for signing "on to the Milton Friedman free market gospel even while he sent federal budgets and deficits along with them to the moon." He notes that for decades America saw prices rise and fall until World War II when falling prices were eliminated from the economy and a new term for a combination of stagnant economy together with inflation forced the coining of the term "stagflation". We are seeing falling prices now in the real estate market, and it seems to me this has a lot of people exhibiting the deer in the headlights look. We know about Friedman's enthusiasm for Austrian/Chicago economics. We know that it permits a concentration of wealth. And now I'm wondering if that is what we are seeing in the banking industry. Quoting Thomas Jefferson, Ederer writes: "If the American people ever allow banks to control the issue of their currency, first for inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." A lot of people are waking up homeless these days.
Ederer made another interesting observation. I've been noticing a change in the interior decoration of banks around here. They have abandoned the "hallowed halls" image for the commercially "slick ad man" decor. According to Ederer the architecture of "great stone pillars, bronze fixtures" gave banks a "fascade of the temples of finance". Today we get color-themed fast money boxes with cheap metal furniture reminiscent of McDonalds. If our money depends upon our confidence, why the cheapening of image?

"TO ELIMINATE THE OPIATE" Vol. 2 - By Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman
"The Sufi - Black is Beautiful"
As far as the fecundity principle is concerned, there are several accounts of how the previously discussed bookV'Avo Hayom El HaAyin caused widespread sexual anarchy in Jewish communities....
A concept advanced by the book was that if one beheld the act of sexual intercourse, one would become very brilliant. It was also maintained that Moses had added a special element to this, that better than observing others engaged in the act of intercourse...is to have interracial intercourse. (p. 111-112)
...Edwin Ginn, of the Ginn publishers, issued the first American edition of the notoriously anti-Semitic The Protocols of the Elders of Zion long before Henry Ford. (p. 115)
...the CFR embodies the commitments of its founder Colonel House to Gnostic Illuminism and Socialism, out of which grew the United Nations. (p. 116)
Sufism is a mystical Gnostic belief that predates Islam considerably, but became incorporated into it. Illuminati, Communism, Atheistic pantheism, sexual fantasy, antinomianism, Satanism, radical eschatology, apocalyptic cataclysm are all important elements of it, as are a lust for power and wealth.
The Sufis interfaced with the power elite of the United Nations. The meditation room of the United Nations is Sufi Gnostic.
In the Sufi mysticism, the color black plays an important role. The black altar of Mecca, the Kaaba--Holy of Holies--is draped in black. The banner of Mohammed was black. It means war. The Illumination concept of Sufism is embodied in Sufi rituals perpetrating the alternation of light and darkness, of black and white, such as laying alternate black and white cloths on a floor or alternately kindling and extinguishing a lamp....
The Rosicrucians adopted almost literally the teachings of the Spanish Illuminist Sufis. The rose cross symbolism of Rosicrucianism is derived from the founder of the Sufi order of Abdul-Kadir El-Jilani called the Rose of Baghdad....
The Sufis pretentiously consider themselves to be the originators of medieval Jewish kabbala and the source of the Zohar. (p. 117)
The Sufi introduced the four letter word f--- into medieval English....
I...regard the Crusades as Sufi plots....

Former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold was consideered to be a Sufi. (p. 120)
Freemasonry supports the Islamic concepts of conquest of Judaism and its destruction as taught in the Koran, and today the Dome of the Rock is a perpetual symbol of the destruction of the Temple....the Caliph who built the Dome actually built it as a synagogue for the Jews. It was after his death that it was changed to a mosque....
Graves maintains that Freemasonry began as a Sufi society, reaching England in the tenth century, and that the Knights Templar introduced it into Scotland in the fourteenth century under the guise of a craft guild. (p. 121)
Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science Church employed the crown cross symbol. Mary Baker Eddy was close with Theosophical Society Satanist Madam Blavatsky. (p. 122)
The publication in 1981 of Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Baigent, Lincoln and Leigh stirred up much controversy among scholars of the occult and Gnosticism. One aspect concerning the book's main secret society involved The Cult of the Black Virgin (title of a book by Ean Begg). There happen to be well over 400 statues of the Virgin Mary in European churches in which the Virgin Mary is depicted as Black. There is the hypothesis that these statues owe their origin to Gnostic/Sufi Christians who secretly worshipped the Black Egyptian goddess Isis, that was transmitted into other pagan societies such as Rome as the worship of the Earth Mother. Gershom Scholem has traced the incestuous practices of the Sabbatians to that of the Earth Mother worship, which was preserved by an Islamic sect. (p. 123)
TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION
Remember the Margaret Sanger poetry contest and my entry stating Margaret Sanger's hidden agenda was to eliminate black babies? Well, take a look at what Planned Parenthood's been up to:
They also criticized The Advocate for trying to discredit employees with recorded phone calls.
Listen to the phone conversation
Christian News Wire
WHAT WAS SAID
Autumn Kersey of Planned Parenthood in Boise: Good afternoon, this is Autumn.
Donor: Hello, Autumn, I'm interested in making a donation today.
Donor: What about abortions for the underprivileged minority groups?
Kersey: Oh, absolutely. We have, um, in fact, uh wonderful, fantastic news. We just received a very generous donation to our women in need fund.
Donor: Wonderful. I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group - would that be possible?
Donor: Like the black community for example?
Donor: OK, so the abortionI can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose.
Kersey: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that you wanted your gift to be used to help (an) African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that that gift was earmarked specifically for that purpose.
Donor: Great. Because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don't want my kids being disadvantaged, you know, against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name, you know.
Kersey: Mmhmm, absolutely.
Donor: So that's definitely possible.
Kersey: Oh, always, always.
Donor: So I just wanna - can I put this in the name of my son?
Donor: Yeah, he's trying to get into colleges, and he's going to be applying, you know, he's justwe're just really bighe's really faced troubles with affirmative action.
Donor: And we don't, you know, we just think, you know, the less black kids out there the better.
Kersey: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable. ... Um David, let me, if I may, just get some sort of specific general information so we can set this up the right way. You said you wanted to put it in your son's name, and you would like this designated specifically to assist (an) African-American woman who's looking to terminate a pregnancy.
Donor: Exactly, and yeah, I wanna protect my son, so he can get into college.
Kersey: All right. Excuse my hesitation, um, um, this is the first time I've had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I'm excited, and I wanna make sure I don't leave anything out.

Planned Parenthood of Idaho officials apologized Wednesday for what they called an employee's "serious mistake" in encouraging a donation aimed at aborting black babies.
They also criticized The Advocate, a right-to-life student magazine at the University of California-Los Angeles, for trying to discredit Planned Parenthood employees in seven states in a series of tape-recorded phone calls last summer.
The call to Idaho came in July to Autumn Kersey, vice president of development and marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho.
On the recording provided by The Advocate, an actor portraying a donor said he wanted his money used to eliminate black unborn children because "the less black kids out there the better."
Kersey laughed nervously and said: "Understandable, understandable. ... Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I've had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I'm excited and want to make sure I don't leave anything out."
There is even a UTube clip of the incident. The lip synce is bad, but if you study the lips you can see it is what's actually being said.

"TO ELIMINATE THE OPIATE" by Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman
"The Higher Sabbatian Secrets"
Thekabbala of revolution is a basic ingredient of Gnostic Communistic theology. The mystical element in revolution takes many forms. Even if leading personalities in the revolutions of 1848 and 1917 were rational, it should be realized that the king-priest class of backers was addicted to raw mysticism of the worst kind, black or "red" kabbala, as opposed to the innocuous white Kabbala.
Frankist Sabbatian mysticism, or the red kabbala, was a very important factor in the Communist Revolution of 1848 and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917...it is not strange to find in New Left circles today obsessions with kabbala, occultism, witchcraft and Satanism. They go hand in hand.
The international occult neo-Frankist Cult of the All-Seeing Eye has in its hierarchy known Satanists. The Gnostic Golden Dawn and the Thule Society were replete with Satanists. The Illuminati Asiatic Brethren Lodges, heirs to Frankists' Sabbatian mysticism, based much of their theosophy on Jonathan Eibeschutz's (1690-1764) Gnostic antinomian work..."I shall approach the eye today."...The concepts of Illumination are inextricably interwoven with the eye....
Illumination is brought about by destroying the Demon of Blindness through triangular diminution. The pyramid and triangle are important Gnostic symbols.
The eye of Illumination of the Illuminati is above a pyramid. That of the Gnostic Golden Dawn is inside a triangle....The triangle in which the eye sits is also symbolic of the Platonic three classes; the working, military, and the ruling classes.
In Sabbatian mysticism, sin is holy and is to be indulged in. (pp 85-87)
The Sabbatians believed that there was a higher torah (which they called the torah of atzilut) that supplanted [the Jewish] Torah and was its complete antithesis....In their theosophy, the eye becomes the vehicle and the symbol of sexual anarchy. And so it was that when Jonathan Eibeschutz's evil antinomian book V'Avo HaYom El HaAyin, which articulated these concepts, circulated throughout Eastern Europe, it even influenced some religious Jews, who became completely corrupted when they read his work, and indulged in wife swapping.
This book also catalyzed the practice of adultery and incest to turn rife in certain communities. (p. 88)
The Frankists and Illuminati called upon extreme revolutionary Gnostic millennial messianists of several religions for mystic collaborations to unite in revolutionary upheaval. (p. 89)
Most of the diplomats of the UN today are actually united by Gnostic concepts. (p. 91)
Jacob Frank, born Leibowitz, changed his name to Frank...it appears that Frank who embraced Christian Gnosticism, also identified his name with the theosophy of the spear and the Grail mysteries. These were reduced to writing under Charlemagne and his associates who were called Franks, being part of the mystical personalities described in Parsival. (p. 92-93)
When the Hebrew letters compromising the organization known as B'nai B'rith...are arranged one obtains BaBeTai NeRi, which decodes to "Shabbetai is my Illumination." In other words, the hidden meaning of B'nai B'rith is Sabbatian enlightenment. The term "B'nai B'rith", however, does occur in the Misshnah or in Judaic literature.
The B'nai B'rith was founded by Jewish-born German Sabbatian Bundists who immigrated to the United States in the nineteenth century. (p. 93)
The Sabbatians, under Shabbetai Tzvi (1626-1676) had kings and prophets...[the city of] Misithra was the seat of a large medieval Platonic school. The school is believed to have been run by the Sufi order, the worst conspiratorial Muslim Gnostic sect which some scholars feel is behind the Illuminati and even behind the Frankist Sabbatians. (p. 97)
The priesthood of the Gnostic "temples" is not concerned with the promise of restoration of Israel and the Reinstitution of the Temple worship. Hence, the Gnostic "rabbinate" removed all mention of these aspirations from the Hebrew prayer books, as can be found today in the heretical services and prayer books of Reform and Conservative congregations. Again, the average worshiper in these congregations has been exploited because he does not realize that he is part of a pagan heretical service, an unwitting member of a Gnostic conspiracy. (p. 102)
Antelman gives the line of ordination of Moses Mendelssohn. This is similar to the apostolic lineage of Catholic bishops. It is listed as follows:
Sabbatai Tzvi (1626-1676)
Nathan of Gaza (1643-1680)
Solomon Ayllon (1655-1728)
Nechemiah Chiyon (1655-1729)
Judah Leib Prossnitz (1670-1730)
Jonathan Eibeschutz (1690-1764)
Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786)
RANDIAN ECONOMICS IN ACTION
Not long ago I posted several blogs on the subject of Austrian Economics, it's basis in the philosophy of Ayn Rand and Objectivism, as well as Alan Greenspan's enthusiasm for this form of economics. Those were pertinent posts if you are following the developments in the mortgage meltdown that is souring the American economy.
A March 23, 2007 article at reportonbusiness.com from the Globe and Mail is headlined "Greenspan blamed for subprime crisis: U.S. bank regulators were advocates of exotic mortgages, senator Dodd says". According to the article:
Members of Congress are pointing angry fingers at Alan Greenspan and other U.S. bank regulators for fostering a mortgage market "on steroids" and failing to thwart a predictable subprime meltdown.
Christopher Dodd, chairman of the U.S. Senate banking committee, complained yesterday Mr. Greenspan, who retired as U.S. Federal Reserve Board chief last year, was an early proponent of the type of exotic mortgages that are now being blamed for an epidemic of foreclosures across the United States.
Mr. Greenspan urged lenders to move away from traditional fixed-rate mortgages in a June, 2004, speech as a way to help U.S. consumers, Mr. Dodd told a hearing probing the subprime mortgage meltdown. "The Federal Reserve seemed to encourage the development and use of adjustable rate mortgages that today are defaulting and going into foreclosure at record rates," Mr. Dodd complained.
The Fed then did little to rein in banks as lending standards deteriorated in a mortgage market that appeared to be "on steroids," said Mr. Dodd, Connecticut Democrat.
Other news sources make the same claim. On December 19, 2007 The Times reported:
Alan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, has come under the most sustained attack to date for his role in America's mortgage meltdown.
When he stepped down from the Fed in February last year after 18 years as Chairman, Mr Greenspan was hailed as one of the best central bankers, who presided over one of the biggest economic booms in history.
But an increasing number of critics are now questioning Mr Greenspan's achievements, arguing that he fuelled the housing bubble by reducing the US interest rate from 3.5 per cent to 1percent in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
He is criticised for not clamping down on high-risk “sub-prime” mortgage lending, despite warnings that loans were made on terms which borrowers could not afford once the initial “teaser” rate had expired.
Did Greenspan retire because he saw the crisis he fabricated was imminent? How many senior citizens who rely on the interest on their savings were put into a precarious financial situation when that interest income dwindled to practically nothing? Laissez Faire economics cares nothing for those it injures as we are seeing confirmed in news of families finding themselves suddenly homeless. As The Times article states:
Sheila C. Bair, a former senior Treasury official and now chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, an agency created by Congress to insure deposits and supervise financial institutions, told The New York Times: “Hindsight is always 20-20, but it is clear that the Fed should have acted earlier. Financial innovation is great, but you have to have some basic rules. One of the basic rules is that a borrower should have the ability to repay.”
The result of Randian economics is a disaster. My husband recently spoke with a man who mops up after a family who cannot pay the mortgage moves out or is evicted. He said it was heartbreaking. Even the family photos are left behind.
Another article in The Times indicates we are perhaps still being naive in believing that we have seen the worst:
Two of the world’s most influential financiers have given warning that the American economy will deteriorate more than the US Federal Reserve has anticipated and that its housing recession has “a long way to go”.
Speaking in Tokyo, Alan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the Fed, said that the burgeoning inventory of unsold homes represented a significant risk to America’s financial markets and the wider US economy.
He also warned that he did not know how rapidly the glut of property could be reduced. “We have a long way to go,” Mr Greenspan said. “The critical issue on the whole sub-prime, and by extension the whole financial system, rests very narrowly on getting rid of 200,000 to 300,000 excess units in the United States.”
George Soros, the billionaire investor, added to the gloom at a speech at New York University on Monday evening. He said that the US economy was on the verge of a serious correction and that the Fed may have underestimated its severity.
It's a fair bet that those with capital reserves of the magnitude of Soros and Greenspan are in a position to gobble up many of those mortgages at a cheap price. It must be nice to be able to create your own real estate bargain. It takes a black heart to do it, and Greenspan knew what he was doing according to The New York Times:
Until the boom in subprime mortgages turned into a national nightmare this summer, the few people who tried to warn federal banking officials might as well have been talking to themselves.
Edward M. Gramlich, a Federal Reserve governor who died in September, warned nearly seven years ago that a fast-growing new breed of lenders was luring many people into risky mortgages they could not afford.
But when Mr. Gramlich privately urged Fed examiners to investigate mortgage lenders affiliated with national banks, he was rebuffed by Alan Greenspan, the Fed chairman.
There is even a hint in the headlines--"Fed Shrugged as Subprime Crisis Spread"--of who we ultimately have to blame for the current growth in homelessness. Every man for himself will ultimately leave some men with nothing and other men with all of it.
Over the last decade I spoke with many people who simply could not understand how so many families were able to buy such luxurious houses on what appeared at least to be an average income. It's a lot clearer now. The article contends:
An examination of regulatory decisions shows that the Federal Reserve and other agencies waited until it was too late before trying to tame the industry’s excesses. Both the Fed and the Bush administration placed a higher priority on promoting “financial innovation” and what President Bush has called the “ownership society.”
On top of that, many Fed officials counted on the housing boom to prop up the economy after the stock market collapsed in 2000.
Mr. Greenspan, in an interview, vigorously defended his actions, saying the Fed was poorly equipped to investigate deceptive lending and that it was not to blame for the housing bubble and bust.
We should keep in mind that a credit bubble such as this one was the cause of the Great Depression. Are we in the beginning of a repeat? Spending money you don't have is seldom a good idea.
According to The Times the bailout will once again target seniors and those on fixed incomes as once again the interest rate falls in an effort to keep the leaky boat afloat:
Ben S. Bernanke, who succeeded Mr. Greenspan as Fed chairman, is now scrambling to head off a recession. Last week, the Fed lowered its benchmark interest rate for the third time since August, and officials now worry that the subprime crisis has inflicted deep damage on credit markets that could in turn derail the entire economy.
That, folks, would appear to be a good example of chaos magick. Not surprisingly the chaos magicians and occultists promote Ayn Rand material in their websites.
Here, and here, and here.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Walking with Jesus Christ Through the Week Called Holy
This Sunday marks the official end of Lent and the beginning of the high holy days of our faith. Holy Week is not just any week of the year: it is the hinge upon which our Christian faith and life hangs. If we wish to benefit spiritually from the week, we must decide to get under the surface of the ceremonies that Church offers for our edification and experience the true meaning of these events. We must commit ourselves to walk through the great mysteries of our salvation with Jesus this week and discover how good God has been to us in calling us out of the darkness of our sin into the light of His Life.
Palm Sunday connects us with the enthusiasm of the people of Israel for their salvation. In Jesus they saw, at least for a moment, their Messiah. They welcomed their humble Savior riding a donkey into Jerusalem but they did not recognize that humility was the only doorway to His Kingdom. We must admit that we are like them: fickle, quick to follow a fad and then just as quick to drop it, shouting praises one week and then murderous threats the next. This is where the journey of Holy Week has to start: we must examine our lack of constancy in the practice of the faith and ask Christ to strengthen us for worship.
On Monday of Holy Week we read in the daily Mass readings that the Pharisees deliberately plot to kill Him. Imagine how this attempt to annihilate their Savior must have pierced the Sacred Heart! On Tuesday, the Church announces the sad reality that members of the Lord's own inner circle betrayed and denied Him; and on Wednesday, Judas is shown negotiating our Blessed Lord's life for a few pieces of rotten silver. If we have the honesty, we will admit that we are no better than these disciples - we can't pass the testing that the devil metes out to us. The only question is whether we will despair of our weaknesses like Judas and die or conquer them like Peter and become holy.
On Holy Thursday two great institutions are commemorated. Let us not overlook Our Lord's firm desire to establish them as perpetual gifts for us: one is the sacred priesthood and the other is the Eucharist. He said that He "greatly desired" to eat that Passover with His disciples and that is because He wanted to entrust to certain unworthy men the awesome task of handing down the memorial of His inestimable Sacrifice "in remembrance of Him" to the end of time. Will we thank Him from the depths of our hearts this week for the infinite richness of His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist and for the blessing of His priest brothers who bring that Gift to us?
As we continue to walk with Him we reach the week's summit on Friday - Calvary - but we notice that He is now accompanied in His suffering by His Mother. She was not at the Last Supper because She was not given the gift of the priesthood, but She walked with Him to another Altar of Sacrifice and stood there in perfect union with His redemptive suffering. Let us walk with the Mother of Sorrows on this sorrowful day to derive the deepest possible graces from the Cross that She so perfectly shared in. Then, when He is put in the tomb, let us stay by Her side on Holy Saturday, in vigil, contemplating, grieving for the sins that put Him there and waiting in "joyful hope" for the Day that will never end.
Easter Sunday dawns with new and radiant meaning when we experience the full richness of the week called Holy. The Church has not given us a week like this to add more activities to our already-busy calendars. Quite the opposite. This week will show us the value of the most important things in our lives - provided we keep our eyes focused on the One who gives meaning to everything.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer,

ST. PATRICK'S DAY IN CLEVELAND
Cleveland is the home of the oldest Ohio St. Patrick's Day parade...141 years running. Before the parade is the St. Patrick's Day Mass at St. Colman Church. This year the date falls during Holy Week, and that creates a problem since no celebration of saints' feast days can take place during Holy Week. Around the country many Catholic celebrations were moved to the week that has just ended. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer the event in Cleveland will take place tomorrow:
The celebrant, Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon, will not be wearing green vestments. The congregation will not sing "The Dear Little Shamrock" or other nonsacred songs. And the fifers and drummers, the drill teams and the pompom girls of the West Side Irish American Club will make their traditional march into church in silence, drums muted.
It's a scene you're not likely to behold again, as St. Patrick's Day and Holy Week will not conflict for another 152 years.
"I personally think the silent march will be powerful," said Dan Chambers, the club's liaison with the Cleveland Catholic Diocese. "It shows we're Irish, but we're Catholic first."
The silent march would be powerful if the other marches have been noisy. It might even get some attendees to think about what has taken place in the past, and whether fifers and drummers, drill teams and pompom girls who are not silent are making an appropriate entrance into the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at any time!
