Jacob Weisberg, Jewish Zionist CFR Member says to ESCALATE BLASPEMY for "Best Response" to Hebdo Murders Yale graduate and Secret Society Member 'runs the Slate Group' and thinks religious blasphemy should be increased in response to the Paris murders. By Martin Hill
LibertyFight.com January 13, 2015
Weisberg is editor-in-chief of Slate Group, a Newsweek columnist and Rhodes Scholar, and is featured in coporate establishment rags regularly. Weisberg's Twitter account is @jacobwe and he describes himself as "Jacob Weisberg runs the Slate Group, reads a lot, and writes about politics."
While at Yale, Weisberg declined to join Skull and Bones - not because it is a creepy cult group, but rather simply because the occult group didn't allow women. He opted instead to join the Elihu Secret Society, "founded in 1903, is the fourth oldest senior society at Yale University, New Haven, CT. While similar to Skull and Bones, Scroll and Key and Wolf's Head societies in charter and function, Elihu favors privacy over secrecy. The political journalist Jacob Weisberg, formerly editor of Slate, was similarly offered membership in Skull and Bones by Senator John Kerry. Weisberg declined, citing Bones' exclusion of women. Shortly afterwards Weisberg was persuaded by The Washington Post's Robert G. Kaiser to join Elihu instead."
[New Yale Senior Club: Feature About the Elihu is That It is Not a Secret Society, The New York Times, March 21, 1903".] Other notable members are Senator Joseph Lieberman & George Pataki, 'honorary' Governor of New York.
Weisberg is a secular Jew and has recently called for "mocking religion." in the past, he has scoffed at even his own supposed religion, Judaism. On January 8, the pro-government pundit who hates libertarians retweeted a post which read "Just saw cops writing a parking ticket--yay!!"
Here is his disgusting tweet encouraging blasphemy in response to terrorism.:
Best response to #CharlieHebdo attack -- other than catching and punishing killers -- is to escalate blasphemous satire.
But this week's defense of free speech rights was so spirited that it gave rise to a brand new principle: to defend free speech, one not only defends the right to disseminate the speech, but embraces the content of the speech itself. Numerous writers thus demanded: to show "solidarity" with the murdered cartoonists, one should not merely condemn the attacks and defend the right of the cartoonists to publish, but should publish and even celebrate those cartoons. "The best response to Charlie Hebdo attack," announced Slate's editor Jacob Weisberg, "is to escalate blasphemous satire.".
"To comport with this new principle for how one shows solidarity with free speech rights and a vibrant free press, we're publishing some blasphemous and otherwise offensive cartoons about religion and their adherents:
..,Is it time for me to be celebrated for my brave and noble defense of free speech rights? Have I struck a potent blow for political liberty and demonstrated solidarity with free journalism by publishing blasphemous cartoons?"
You absolutely must see the cartoons Greenwald included.
Weisberg is married to Deborah Needleman, "an American publishing executive, was the founding editor in chief of Domino magazine. She is editor in chief of The New York Times Style Magazine." They have two children.
"Mr. Weisberg came to New York in 1997 by way of Chicago, where he grew up in a liberal Jewish home... In 1987, Mr. Weisberg graduated from Yale University, where he took classes in Russian history, having come of political age in an era when President Reagan railed against Soviet-style communism. Three years later, he joined the C.I.A. and moved to Washington, because, he said, "I wanted a job where I could be a cold warrior," adding, "where you can be a brainy, dark weirdo and do all kinds of fascinating crazy stuff."... The Dark Stuff, Distilled -
Joseph Weisberg is the creator of "The Americans," a TV series on the FX network.
When Joseph Weisberg was training to be a case officer for the C.I.A. in the early 1990s, he soon learned that deception was a crucial skill, one that involved lying to his family on a regular basis. ..."There is a mystery to Joe... He is funny, nice and fun to be with, but there is an underside. He was able to hide that in the C.I.A."
"The financial collapse proves that its ideology makes no sense... the libertarian apologetics fall wildly short of providing any convincing explanation for what went wrong... Utopians of the right, libertarians are just as convinced that their ideas have yet to be tried, and that they would work beautifully if we could only just have a do-over of human history. Like all true ideologues, they find a way to interpret mounting evidence of error as proof that they were right all along... To which the rest of us can only respond, Haven't you people done enough harm already? We have narrowly avoided a global depression and are mercifully pointed toward merely the worst recession in a long while. This is thanks to a global economic meltdown made possible by libertarian ideas. ...The best thing you can say about libertarians is that because their views derive from abstract theory, they tend to be highly principled and rigorous in their logic... "Let failed banks fail" is the purist line. This approach would deliver a wonderful lesson in personal responsibility, creating thousands of new jobs in the soup-kitchen and food-pantry industries. The worst thing you can say about libertarians is that they are intellectually immature, frozen in the worldview many of them absorbed from reading Ayn Rand novels in high school. Like other ideologues, libertarians react to the world's failing to conform to their model by asking where the world went wrong."
"Part of this reflects class. Jews are likely the richest ethnic group in America, and like rich Episcopalians or Muslims, tend to believe in material things, not God. (It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven.) But a bigger part is cultural: As Jews have sought success and security in America, they have thrown off traits that embarrass them or present a conflict, and Hebrew religion is one. As the writer Jacob Weisberg says, half-jokingly, Jews think any Jew who's more religious than they are is crazy. Who can afford to give up Saturday? Who wants to be seen praying with phylacteries, leather straps wrapped around head and arms?"
NOTE: Since I am Catholic I will include a brief link on blasphemy and why it is wrong. These warmongers who use (and/or orchestrate) terror events such as the recent tragedy in Paris are way out of line by encouraging to foment chaos and confrontation by committing further blasphemy. No Christian or anyone of conscience, for that matter, would ever purposely offend, outrage or horrify another person's religion. [You may contact me here.]
Blasphemy: (Greek blaptein, "to injure", and pheme, "reputation") signifies etymologically gross irreverence towards any person or thing worthy of exalted esteem. St. Paul tells of being blasphemed (1 Corinthians 4:13) and the Latin Vulgate employs the word blasphemare to designate abusive language directed either against a people at large (2 Samuel 21:21; 1 Chronicles 20:7) or against individuals (1 Corinthians 10:30; Titus 3:2).
The malice of blasphemy - Blasphemy is a sin against the virtue of religion by which we render to God the honour due to Him as our first beginning and last end. St. Thomas says that it is to be regarded as a sin against faith inasmuch as by it we attribute to God that which does not belong to Him, or deny Him that which is His.
But this week's defense of free speech rights was so spirited that it gave rise to a brand new principle: to defend free speech, one not only defends the right to disseminate the speech, but embraces the content of the speech itself. Numerous writers thus demanded: to show "solidarity" with the murdered cartoonists, one should not merely condemn the attacks and defend the right of the cartoonists to publish, but should publish and even celebrate those cartoons. "The best response to Charlie Hebdo attack," announced Slate's editor Jacob Weisberg, "is to escalate blasphemous satire.".....
But no matter. Their cartoons were noble and should be celebrated - not just on free speech grounds but for their content. In a column entitled "The Blasphemy We Need," The New York Times' Ross Douthat argued that "the right to blaspheme (and otherwise give offense) is essential to the liberal order" and "that kind of blasphemy [that provokes violence] is precisely the kind that needs to be defended, because it's the kind that clearly serves a free society's greater good." New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait actually proclaimed that 'one cannot defend the right [to blaspheme] without defending the practice.' Vox's Matt Yglesias had a much more nuanced view but nonetheless concluded that "to blaspheme the Prophet transforms the publication of these cartoons from a pointless act to a courageous and even necessary one, while the observation that the world would do well without such provocations becomes a form of appeasement."
To comport with this new principle for how one shows solidarity with free speech rights and a vibrant free press, we're publishing some blasphemous and otherwise offensive cartoons about religion and their adherents:
Is it time for me to be celebrated for my brave and noble defense of free speech rights? Have I struck a potent blow for political liberty and demonstrated solidarity with free journalism by publishing blasphemous cartoons?...............
The New York Times' David Brooks today claims that anti-Christian bias is so widespread in America - which has never elected a non-Christian president - that "the University of Illinois fired a professor who taught the Roman Catholic view on homosexuality.- He forgot to mention that the very same university just terminated its tenure contract with Professor Steven Salaita over tweets he posted during the Israeli attack on Gaza that the university judged to be excessively vituperative of Jewish leaders, and that the journalist Chris Hedges was just disinvited to speak at the University of Pennsylvania for the Thought Crime of drawing similarities between Israel and ISIS. That is a real taboo - a repressed idea - as powerful and absolute as any in the United States, so much so that Brooks won't even acknowledge its existence. It’s certainly more of a taboo in the U.S. than criticizing Muslims and Islam, criticism which is so frequently heard in mainstream circles -including the U.S. Congress - that one barely notices it any more.
REASON.COM: The Eternal Death of Libertarianism Writing in both Newsweek and Slate, Jacob "In Defense of Government" Weisberg blames the recent financial crisis on, then declares the official death of, libertarianism. Here's how it begins:"
Associated Press Takes Down "Piss Christ" Image After Complaints About Censorship Double Standard The Associated Press is among the numerous news outlets that have been self-censoring images of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that may have provoked Wednesday's deadly Paris attack. In a statement, the news organization said that such censorship is standard policy: "None of the images distributed by AP showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. It's been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images." The conservative Washington Examiner publication then pointed out that the AP nonetheless continued to carry an image of Andres Serrano's 1987 "Piss Christ" photograph- which is certainly provocative, having been the subject of massive controversy in the United States, and which was actually vandalized by Catholic protesters when it was on display in 2011 in, as it happens, France. (See the damaged photo, which depicts a crucifix submerged in the artist's urine, above.) Some time after the Examiner's post, the AP appears to have taken the "Piss Christ" image off its website.

LAPD To Hold Two Public Meetings on Use Of Officer On-Body Cameras 1/9/15
With hostility, suspicion and distrust between police and the public becoming more pervasive in recent years, LibertyFight.com applauds this move towards transparency on behalf of LAPD and the Los Angeles City government. I encourage everyone in the Los Angeles area to attend these meetings.
Introducing RandPaulZionist.com: Because We Really Need To Do Better In 2016 12/23/14
This site will be a clearing house for Rand Paul Zionist information- keeping a close watch on Randy as he ramps up to his attempted 2016 presidential bid. As someone who heartily supported Ron Paul for president, it's offensive to me that Rand would use his father's support & money base to get elected to the U.S. Senate and then betray his constituents to the degree that he has. Starting with endorsing Romney, slathering at the 'wailing wall,' etc. etc. You may not know that Rand has actually admitted in official Senate speeches that he "meets with Israeli groups daily," a story I broke last year. There are many similar stories in our archives.
I realize that Rand Paul's rhetoric on domestic issues and supposed 'limited government' are better than all the other legislators in Congress. But I believe there is a very serious reason that we as Americans need to reject people like Rand outright, and we should admonish and shame them publicly. The bottom line is that you can promise to 'cut government' all you want, but if you support the maniacal neocon-Zionist foreign policy of giving trillions to Israel and defending Israel at all costs, you're not a friend to Americans or an advocate of peace. Not to mention my good friend Greg from Houston, who made international news in 2010 when he confronted George H.W. Bush in a pizza place and called him a piece of ^%$# Zionist murderer, is helping me with the site. Stay tuned! ;-)
Rand Paul to Ferguson: "Come on guys, you got to wait to have your kids." (Government Meddling in Procreation: Is Rand Paul a Crypto-Eugencist?) 12/1/14
"Birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility," President Eisenhower said in December 1959. Oh how things have changed, with even supposed 'limited government' politicians promoting 'family planning.'
Don't let that cop search your car! (The Supreme Court held that the Fourth Amendment prohibits a police officer from further searching a vehicle which was stopped for a minor traffic offense once the officer has written a citation for the offense.)
"The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. the choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to "the slavery of sin." [CCC 1733]
"Freedom is exercised in relationships between human beings. Every human person, created in the image of God, has the natural right to be recognized as a free and responsible being. All owe to each other this duty of respect. the right to the exercise of freedom, especially in moral and religious matters, is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of the human person. This right must be recognized and protected by civil authority within the limits of the common good and public order." [Catechism of the Catholic Church 1738.].
A 'Mission' lecture series on The Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell: - By Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea
This is an absolute must-hear from my favorite website, AudioSancto.org. I highly recommend this five part series of free audio lectures by this traditional Catholic priest on the most important things which we all will face. (Of course we will experience only three of the four last things, since a person can not go to both Heaven and hell.)
Did you know that the United States government willingly helped slaughter tens of thousands of Catholics in North America only 80 years ago? It was called the Cristero War, a Masonic led slaughter of Catholic freedom fighters. Below is our work documenting the matter. I also highly recommend the excellent film For Greater Glory which was released in July 2012.
Part 1: When the U.S. government supplied ammo & military planes to kill thousands of Catholics 9/18/13
This is an expose on the U.S. government's role in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Roman Catholics in Mexico fighting for their freedom to simply practice their faith. For naive well-intentioned Catholics who believe that we should always trust the government, these documented facts should be a real wake up call. As Archbishop of Baltimore Michael Joseph Curley stated at the time, "Our government has armed Calles's killers!"
Part 2: Admitted Fact: U.S. Govt supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Rifles, planes & tanks to slaughter thousands of Catholics 10/17/13
LibertyFight.com has further documented many original sources which confirm for the record that the U.S. Government supplied directly from United States arsenals ten million rounds of ammunition, ten thousand Enfield rifles, machine guns, & military aircraft to slaughter innocent Catholics. We found Testimony taken at the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard in 1920 and the original New York Times newspaper articles reporting the military supplies ordered by president Herbert Hoover.
U.S. Senate Testimony On the Cristero War April 29, 1920 On Thursday, April 29, 1920, The United States Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard Testimony taken at Washington D.C. Among the many people who testified were Fr. Francis P. Joyce, a Captain and Chaplain in the United States Army, Monsignor Francis C. Kelley, President of the Catholic Church Extension Society of the United States of America, and Catholic nun Mother Elias De Sta Sacto, of the Discalced Carmelite Order. Note that this testimony was taken on April 29, 1920, which proves that the countless abuses, murders and sacrileges enacted upon Catholics by the Mexican and United States Governments began much earlier than 1926 and extended much later than 1929, as is the period commonly referred to when discussing the 'Cristero War.'
"...My friends, have we not learned that modern wars settle no disputes? By this time are we not dissillusioned? Do we not realize that wars are the enemy of democracy? Do we not appreciate that poor men- the laborers and farmers- pay for all wars- pay with their lives or their liberties?"
Fr. Charles E. Coughlin of Royal Oak, Michigan had one of the most popular radio shows in the U.S. during the late 1930's. At his height of popularity, upwards of thirty million listeners tuned in to his radio show each week and he received 10,000 letters per week with a clerical staff of over 100 people. He advocated a sound money system, abolition of the Federal Reserve, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and was a stringent opponent of both Nazism and Communism, which he pointed out was funded by corrupt Jewish interests and international bankers. Fr. Coughlin exposed war-mongers and government propagandists, which made him a real threat to the establishment. He was a devout and influencial priest who stressed the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. The government banned his programs and threatened to arrest and imprison him. I consider Fr. Coughlin one of the wisest and greatest American heros ever. His material is an absolute treaure, a must-see.
His work, in retrospect, was prophetic and still holds true today.
There is a well circulated clip of Fr. Coughlin on stage at an Illinois rally shouting about the treasonous politicians in Congress who refused to oppose the Federal Reserve Bank's control of American money, noting "They're not even Americans, these so-called Democrats and Republicans!" [Father Coughlin speaks against the Federal Reserve.]
An influential critic of president Roosevelt and America's empirical foreign policy, Coughlin became the target of FDR himself, who was temporarily successful in getting Coughlin kicked off the air.
LibertyFight.com has put together seven articles documenting specific aspects of the brilliant and heroic work of Father Charles E. Coughlin. I have compiled hundreds of newsletters, pamphlets, books and recordings written and spoken by this priest who to this day is shamefully and dishonestly smeared as un-American and an 'anti-semite'. In reality the exact opposite is true. A close examination of Fr. Coughlin's work is important for a revealing documented historical perspective. Also, it relates to the situation today because the same war-mongers, bankers and internationalists about to start World War III by getting the U.S. entangled in a completely fraudulent, unwinnable, an unnecessary war in Syria. As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun.
I encourage everyone to download Fr. Coughlin's absolutely invaluable books and listen to his recordings. More posts of interest will come in the following weeks and months as time permits. The story of how I came across this great historical figure is here. Resources are at the bottom of this page.
