My sincerest thanks – While I have not reached the target goal with just 20 hours left, I want to thank everyone who has shared and supported my crowdfunding campaign. Believe me when I say that I know I am blessed to have the kind of support that translates to good people shelling out what they can to help me do what I do. In a way I really do work for you, most of the last many years this work has been unpaid and yet I am grateful to have done what my heart required me to do. If I can I will continue to do this but now I must find a way to pay bills as well.
It is worth noting that in all this time I have not taken one penny from the UK government, although I qualify for financial entitlements. My attitude there is fuck’em, I ill not be beholden to their corrupt system. Aside from that you could bank on me having been portrayed as a social leach if I had taken any of the money available to me through the system. Instead I have simply done what I needed to do and had faith all that I would require would be there for me. This approach has worked, it allowed me to express myself as I need to do, and again I am grateful, so very grateful, so thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way. TJP
To support the continuation of my work on The Peoples Voice please click on the Pozible link below;
Programme 3 – 9/11
Programme 1 – Palestine
My way of giving back is pretty clear for those who see me fairly and I will continue to give what I have to the best of my ability, until the goal of a better world is achieved. Until such time let us never forget that the world is a reflection of our virtues and inadequacies.
If you can help me stay on air at The People’s Voice by allowing me to pay bills and produce quality programs I must thank you in advance. For those who have shared the attached link and supported, thank you very, very much. Until we destroy the financial fraud that is central banking, fractional reserve, debt based money fraud, we will continue to endure the carefully manipulated scarcity that makes noble work either unpaid or little paid, so under these circumstances we must decide what is the best way to invest what little we have. If you feel my Middle East show is on the list of worthy causes then let it be because what I am discussing is that important, not simply because you like me. TJP
I really despise fundraising and genuinely think this may be the last such campaign I will involve myself in. But the reality is that I must find a way to fund this show or simply take paid work elsewhere. For me the time to work for free is nearly done, it has been a blessing to only do what I choose to do, but family obligations make this a non-option in 2014. If you can support this campaign please do, if you cannot then please write and share why you think my Middle East Show is worth keeping on air and share this link to support. Some of you have good skills in this regard, any help you give to help me achieve this goal is seriously appreciated.
Here are some subjects already partially recorded or in the works, soon to be aired;
1) the USS Liberty
3) War crimes & treason charges so as to purge the traitors among us.
If you look at the first two shows I think it is fair to say that the content is groundbreaking and complimentary to the process of creating a better world.
My ultimate goal includes eliminating the private control of debt based money with a truly publicly controlled, transparent, non-debt based system that serves people around the globe and creates abundance for all. With this achieved, fundraising campaigns like this will become unnecessary. I cannot wait for this, let us make it so ASAP!
Thank you in advance for sharing, either way 2014 is going to be an amazing year. TJP
Below is the transcript and video for what might be my best interview ever. There are more things I would have liked to touch on, such as 9/11 and Palestine, but in 25 minutes there is only so much one can say and I was guided by the questions. For those who do not know I have a new show called Ken O’Keefe’s Middle East on The Peoples Voice and as a volunteer producing and presenting this show I need some support to carry on. I simply cannot work full time and take care of family responsibilities. Your support is given with a promise that I will speak about issues like the ones below and more with the best platform possible. The image below is the link to support and/or share far and wide;

The Middle East is at its boiling point. Syria is devastated by raging war. Israel threatens to deal with Iran once and for all – with Washington towering over regional affairs. What is at the cornerstone of American foreign politics? With Iran and the US going through a diplomatic thaw, what game will Tel Aviv play? Today we look at these issues through the eyes of a member of the few, but one not proud: a former US marine who burned his passport and became an anti-war activist.
Sophie Shevardnadze: So I am here with activist Kenneth O’Keefe, it’s really great to have you on our show. Kenneth, I know that you’ve led a human shield action in Iraq, right before the war started and then you were deported – do you follow what’s going on in Iraq right now? For example, the November death toll was almost 1,000 and 2013 is the deadliest year since 2008. Why do you think the removal of Saddam hasn’t improved the lives of Iraqis? – Or has it? I don’t know…
Kenneth O’Keefe: Well, I think if you really want to know the truth about the invasion in Iraq, there are clearly some incentives from the invasion: oil, securing oil was one of them, establishing prominent military bases in the region was another one, but the far less talked about reality is Israeli plans which made clear that the Balkanization of surrounding countries and particularly Iraq, if we go to Odid Yinon’s plan for Israel in the 1980s, it lays out very clearly a strategy of destabilizing all of the areas surrounding Israel, this includes Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and even Egypt and Saudi Arabia. This long-term goal is a part of a Greater Israel project, so in terms of sectarian divide you see happening in Iraq today it’s actually all part of the very well designed plan to try and secure this fantasy goal of the Greater Israel project.
SS: Why would Israel benefit from an unstable Middle East, unstable Arab nations? Because what we see is that this instability actually is followed by fundamental Islam. People who are overthrown are either replaced by fundamentalist powers or there’s just more sectarian violence that grows…
KK: Yes, if would seem on the surface from a sane point of view that everything is going wrong, but in fact, when you fracture a country along sectarian divides, ultimately you weaken the country. The last thing Israel or US wants is a strong Nasser-type leader, an Arab nationalist who will seriously ensure that the resources of that country are taken and protected and used for the benefit of the people – that’s the last thing that the empire wants and Israel wants. While you have these religious fundamentalist nutcases who are running around bombing and doing all sorts of stuff like that, you have a weakened, fractured country in Iraq, and that is the prerequisite for ultimately expanding Israel into a fantasy of a Greater Israel project. It doesn’t seem sane and it’s not sane because those who are trying to carry out these agendas are pure and simple psychopaths.
SS: So you think that American administrations, one after another, have been following this plan for 30 years?
KK: If you ask me how the world functions, then you have to understand one thing plain and simple – the head of the snake, the system of power is headed by the financial system. The bankers rule the Earth, through the private control of issuance of money, debt-based money which we all are supposed to pay. Ultimately with all of these things that they call “austerity” and whatnot, the bankers, basically, through the control of issuance of money which allows them to provide themselves with an infinite supply of money, means that they can buy anything and anyone that can be bought – so if we look at it, the vast majority of governments around the world, they are nothing more than puppets carrying out an agenda for the bankers, and the bankers at the top of this pyramid are, as I’ve said, plain and simple psychopathSS: they’re drunk on their own power, they are used to getting everything they want, they can buy anything and anyone that can be bought. This explains the corruption of virtually every government we can look at, and the policies do not reflect the interests of the people. They reflect, pure and simple, the interests of the bankers.
SS: So if what you’re saying is true, that governments obey the big banks and the big money, then it would really take the people and a revolution in each country that you have named to actually change things around. Do you really see revolution taking place in America, for example?
KK: It’s already happening. I’ll give you a great example why I’m optimistic about things in America. You know that the president of the US, traitor that he is, is actually a constitutional lawyer? He actually has trained at the highest levels [of academia] in constitutional law. Do you know how obscene it is that somebody who was trained in constitutional law, giving himself the authority to execute anyone, anywhere, in any part of the planet with no jury, no trial, no conviction, nothing – this man is a dictator who has assigned himself the right to execute anyone, including US citizens. I am confident that at some point the American patriots, who seem to be in a bit of a coma and have been sleeping for a long time, are going to wake up soon and realize that when they took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the US, the president of the US also took that oath and has breached it so badly that he should be arrested and charged with treason right now – and ultimately all of the sycophants of the US Congress who pass things like the Patriot Act and the NDAA, again, completely a contrary to the US constitution, which is supposed to be the supreme law of the land. These people need to be arrested, and a government needs to be put in place that actually honors the US Constitution, and I honestly believe that’s going to happen, one way or another.
SS: But you just started your answer by saying that the revolution is already happening and then you went on by citing everything that’s going wrong in America, like for example the NSA leaks, right – you kind of touched upon them – nothing is really changing within the American society. I don’t see people coming out on the streets and protesting, even though they know they are being listened to. Even Europe, look at Europe – they expressed their outrage at the fact that they have been listened to, including presidents, but nothing is really happening. It’s not like America is cutting on the NSA programs, and it’s not like people aren’t listened to anymore. So where’s the revolution that you are talking about?
KK: I’ll tell you where – this is another thing that really excites me, Sophie, because while you’re not seeing it, apparently and many other people may not be seeing it, let me give you a perfect example that the revolution has already occurred and first step of that revolution is awareness. No one is more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. The people of the world are starting to realize they have been enslaved, enslaved in the financial system which is effectively selling the future of their children down the river. More and more people are becoming aware of that. They’re also sick and tired of being lied to about one boogeyman after another and ultimately what happened in Syria – this is a key point and I really want to make this point before we move on to the next one, because it’s talking about the revolution that you are referring to. The reason why we did not hit Syria, the reason why we did not start bombing Syria is at one simple thing, and that is that the people of the West and the world simply did not buy it. They didn’t have to go on a street and protest – keep in mind, back in 2003 we had a largest protest in the history of the world, [but] it did not stop the invasion in Iraq. But, I’m telling you, the invasion and occupation and ultimately the bombardment of Syria has been planned long ago. It’s a stepping stone toward Iran, which is the ultimate goal for these psychopaths, and [they] could not bombard Syria. The reason why they couldn’t even secure that vote to favor that, here in Britain, is because the people overwhelmingly did not buy it. In the US the approval for bombardment of Syria was about 9 percent – that’s why the US Congress, which is a treasonous body of the government, couldn’t even go to a vote about it. Because if they went to a vote on it and actually voted for another war in this farcical war on terror (where [the fact that] the fantastic American servicemen took pictures of themselves saying: “I did not join the US military to fight with Al-Qaeda in Syria” says it all), if they had made that move, there would have been an open revolution. The powers that be know that people are primed and ready to take major steps to stop this, and again, American patriots are going to go [into] Congress and the White House eventually and arrest these cowards and traitors. But it’s under the surface right now, it’s getting ready and to show the power of the people – ultimately we did not go into Syria; this is because people did not provide one key element for the powers that be, and that is their consent. If they don’t have our consent, they can’t do a damn thing.
SS: So you actually bring me to my next point, which is Syria. You’re saying the allegations in the Western press that it wasn’t Syria but Iran that was the actual goal, the final goal, are true. What happens now if Assad starts to look like he is finally achieving a decisive victory, how will the US respond, do you think?
KK: Again, keep in mind that the real problem that Assad faces is that, well, yes, there are major human rights violations that happen in Syria and then in every other Arab country, and the US and the Western world – ultimately there are human rights violations of obscene levels, especially in the US. So they are in no position to talk about other leaders – our leaders, the US president can execute anyone, anywhere, anytime – and he does. So how can we talk about Bashar Al-Assad seriously and say that this man is a problem…
SS: Oh, Kenneth, they will talk about that and [say] the world listens to the American president, that’s the difference. They will talk about that, they keep talking about it. That was the whole purpose of why they wanted to overthrow Assad, because there were supposedly human rights violations in Syria.
KK: The point that I’m making is that the US has given himself the authority to execute anyone, anywhere, anytime for any pretext, any bogus reason. Is that more of a problem to the world than Bashar Al-Assad? Of course it is! It’s much more of a problem that the president of the US says he can execute anyone, anywhere anytime, and yet we’re sitting here talking about Bashar Al-Assad which, granted, this man has committed crimes in Syria, there’s no question of that. But when we look at the US president, when we look at Israel, we look at Britain – that alliance, this true Axis of Evil between these three countries. The amount of devastation that has occurred in Iraq, in Afghanistan and in other parts of world – Yemen, Pakistan – it’s so devastating, I think its beggars belief that we as people can be conned into thinking that Bashar Al-Assad is the problem, or that Ahmadinejad was the problem. We are the problem; we in the West are the problem, especially the US government. It really is quite ridiculous that we get manipulated into saying, “Oh, we have to take care of this problem over there.” The problem is in our own backyard, and we know this. We better take care of our dirty, filthy House of corruption. The US Congress is nothing but a den of traitors, the most sycophantic, disgusting traitors you can imagine, and the White House has got a dictator. This is a problem; this is a major problem, a much bigger problem than what’s happening in Syria or Bashar Al-Assad.
SS: Now, you have great knowledge and strong opinions about events in the Middle East. Iran has recently softened its attitude toward its opponent after decades of deadlock. Israel is annoyed. How do you see that developing?
KK: I think it’s a reflection of the sanity of people around the world who realize that any kind of attack on Iran is tantamount to initiating a full-scale Third World War, which of course could very well and almost inevitably would lead to a war with China and Russia. This is pure madness and those of us who’ve lost loved ones or who have served in combat like myself, and others who know the devastating cost of war, not just for the so-called “victor” – because the only victor really is the bankers, quite frankly – but even those who are supposedly on the winning side suffer greatly, and testimony to that fact aside from 1 million to 2 million dead in Iraq is the 22 American servicemen a day who are committing suicide because of the horrendous things that they were told to do in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. This policy, this shift in policy to actually resolve this conflict with Iran, this false conflict, in truth – is a reflection of the will of the people, if you ask me, who are starting to achieve their goal.
SS: You think Netanyahu is bluffing, because I’ve spoken to a couple of Israeli parliamentarians, I’ve spoken to Israelis – and they all are for a strike.
KK: No, I don’t think he is bluffing, he is an absolute psychopath and he reflects the agenda for the powers that be in Israel. Each one of these players – Netanyahu, George W. Bush, Obama, Cameron – they are all puppets and they all are supposed to read a different script at different times, depending on what the agenda is. The agenda is shifting slightly. It looks like Israel and the people of Israel, the Jewish state of Israel, are like sheep being led into slaughter, because ultimately the policies of Israel are completely and totally unsustainable. Even the CIA said in 2009 that Israel would not even exist within 20 years. Henry Kissinger himself said it wouldn’t exist in 10 years, and the reason why is because its policies are totally self-destructive. The puppet masters are quite happy to sacrifice the people of Israel, they are going to destroy themselves if they do attack Iran, because Iran can fight back and does have allies, and a lot of countries are sick and tired of Israel’s threats to both its immediate neighbors and even the rest of the world. When we look at the Samson Option, I encourage people to Google “Samson Option” and look at the threat Israel has posed to the world if things don’t go its way.
SS: When you talk about the US, [it’s] Israel’s main supporter – but right now we see that it’s kind of open to Iran as well, knowing, how much anxiety that raises among Israelis – what does it tell you about the US?
KK: It tells me that people are beginning to realize their power. I think there are things that correlate – the approval rating for Barack Obama and the US Congress is as low as it’s possible to get, somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 percent, 20 percent maximum. The people have come to a point where they are sick and tired of being lied to, they know they are being lied to, and when they see their so-called leaders try to cooperate with Israel and get another war that would lead to disastrous consequences for the region and for the US and every other person involved – they’ve had it. The reflection of the policies is indeed that of the people, it’s the people who are sick and tired. I do see that there is some demarcation going on between Israel and the US, but this is because the power of people is rising – and as we saw on Syria, the Congress and the president were all basically saying, “The red line was crossed, blah-blah-blah,” and this blatantly false flag attack in Ghouta in Syria has backfired, they were not able to carry out this agenda, and this is only empowering the people that much further.
SS: So you think Iran should be allowed to develop its nuclear program?
KK: I think it’s absolutely hypocritical and insane that we would sit here and fixate on Iran and its supposed nuclear weapons program, which I don’t believe exists, but nonetheless, who could blame Iran if they were developing nuclear weapons? If the US and the West taught any lessons to the rest of the world with the invasion and occupation of Iraq it was that Saddam Hussein was a fool for actually disarming, because by disarming all he did was make that much easier for the empire to come in and destroy the entire country. So the lesson we teach to the world is that the best way to defend yourself is to get yourself a nuclear weapon, and of course the biggest culprit of using nuclear weapons and producing nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction is my birth nation, the US, and I find it absolute insane that we sit here and talk about Iran’s supposed nuclear weapons program when we know the US is producing every kind of weapon under this sun. It is spending more than any other military on the planet combined, and it’s involved in more war, more death and more suffering than any other nation combined. And yet it’s sitting there on a pedestal talking about other nations developing weapons of mass destruction? It is insane that we even allow them to do this, the first nation that needs to disarm without questions is the US, and the first nation to be charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity is my birth nation – the United States. Once we start seeing actions like this, then we’ll know the people in positions of power are serious, because ultimately the rest of the world is sick and tired of the impunity and continuous threats of a Third World War. We’ve reached the point now when human beings around the planet are realizing we can’t do this. We can’t have a Third World War, this is not a game.
SS: But you haven’t answered my question – do you think Iran should be able to develop its nuclear program?
KK: I think that every nation should disarm right now, every nation that has a weapons program should be inspected by a legitimate international body and those nations with the highest amount of WMDs, nuclear weapons should be the first ones to start disarming. When those nations start disarming, then I would say that the rest of the world will also have to show that it’s disarming as well. While the US is able to maintain the largest military might in the history of the world and continues to use those weapons against all other countries, I only see it as a pure hypocrisy that the West would say that other countries can’t have such things. I don’t want any weapons in this world, but it’s not right for us in the West and particular for the US to say that we can have all these weapons and for the rest of the world – we’ll bomb you to the Stone Age if you even try to think to defend yourself. It’s beyond hypocrisy, it’s ridiculous. The US needs to disarm first, and the world needs to assist on that.
SS: I’ve read in your blog that you said this world needs one thing above all others – and that’s sanity. But doesn’t sanity depend on what side of the argument you’re on?
KK: No, I think we were all sane when we were children and unfortunately what passes as education is actually an indoctrination and through indoctrination we’ve turned into really largely a bunch of dupes who’ve enslaved ourselves without even knowing it, but when you regain the capacity to think for yourself, to actually become human, it becomes very clear. For instance, if we look at these politicians who are historically lying to us, over and over and over again, and we realize that the war-making are absolutely inherently interested in perpetuating war, and if we look at the people in the positions of power, we see how they continuously reap major bonuses with the banks – they get bailouts to the tune of trillions and yet we’re being told that we’re not working hard enough, that we’re in debt. All of these things combined lead us to the point when we reach a certain level of sanity, and realize: “You know what? This entire system does not represent me,” and in fact every person on this planet is fighting the same enemy. That enemy uses the financial system to enslave all of us. It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out; in fact more and more people are figuring this out. A point of sanity brings us to the point when we realize: “Enough, this is a game that cannot be played, we’re risking our own collective suicide here and as a sane person I will not contribute in any way towards this never-ending policy of war which is leading us to the brink of destruction”. This is not about being intelligent, this is about being sane first and foremost. The average person can understand this very easily.
SS: I know that you have renounced your US citizenship more than twice, three times I think. Having a US passport is a dream for so many people. What’s so wrong with it, I mean you don’t have to agree with US policies, but is America all that bad?
KK: When you look at citizenship, you have to understand that citizenship is a social contract between the state and the citizen. Under that contract you have, supposedly, rights and you also have obligations. Now, I look at the obligations of being a US citizen and I realized I cannot pay into a tax system which is basically paying up debt to the bankers, but nonetheless, we pay into a tax system which is used to produce military capability that is also ultimately used in other parts of the world, which is ultimately killing my brothers and sisters in other parts of the world. I do not agree to contribute to a tax system that is being used to commit mass murder against people I consider to be my brothers and sisters halfway around the world. It’s violation of my ethics as a man, of someone who believes in justice for everyone and wants a better world for everyone. I cannot pay for the murder of my brothers and sisters – and that’s part of the contract of citizenship. So I said, which was to me a sensible thing and a moral thing to do, “Take my name off of that contract, because I do not agree to it and ultimately I will walk away.” I left a paradise life in Hawaii, had my own business, I was making money, lived on the beach, and did something I loved. I had a beautiful, beautiful life and I walked from that, because I absolutely, 100 percent disagree with the actions of my birth nation and I find them so criminal that I need my name taken off that list. I will enter into a contract again with the US if indeed it carries itself with honor and will respect the US Constitution; if the US Constitution is indeed made the supreme law of the United States, then I will happily come back to my nation and adhere to the contract.
SS: Why did it take so many times to renounce this citizenship to actually terminate it? Were the Americans holding on to you for some special reason? Should it be just easy to renounce, to say, “I don’t want to be a citizen anymore, period”?
KK: It’s a difficult process. It’s costly, you have to leave the country, you have to swear under oath, you have to hand over your passport, you have to fill up the forms – I’ve done all that. I would argue that probably the reason why they have not honored my right of self-determination, a human right of self-determination, is because it could have set the precedent, which could spark an imaginative idea that people can look out around the world and say, “You know what? I don’t actually agree with this contract with my nation any longer, I want to enter into a new contract.” This is why I refer to myself as a world citizen, we’re all world citizens. My human family is where my allegiance goes; I don’t give my allegiance to one unit, one group, one nation, one religion. My whole human family is my brothers and sisters and ultimately I give my allegiance to them. That’s the contract I will honor and if any other contract, inferior to that one, will try to compel me to pay for the murder of my brothers and sisters – I will not partake in that contract. I’m living here in the UK and haven’t made enough money to even be taxable for the last 12 years, but I might make enough money this year to actually be taxable, and I’ll tell you what: I will not pay into the UK tax system and fund the murder of my brothers and sisters halfway around the world. I simply refuse to do it, and I would argue that other people should look at the contract like that and, maybe, if we all decide to enter into a new contract like that we can end war for good.
SS: So you say you’re a world citizen. Is there any place that you love more than others? Why are you living in the UK if you don’t like UK policies?
KK: I love Hawaii. My adopted homeland is Hawaii, and the Hawaiian Nation was stolen by the US in 1893, and yet, there are my Hawaiian brothers and sisters who are Hawaiian nationals and who know who they are and have not forgotten who they are, and take pride in who they are. If they have their way, and I have my way, the Hawaiian Nation will no longer be a military outpost for the US launching its wars of aggression against everybody, the latest boogeyman. Hawaii is the place that I long to live, I plan to return there, but I want the empire out of Hawaii – Hawaii is not an extension of the US empire, it is a Hawaiian nation, and the people of Hawaii, the Kanaka Maoli deserve to have their nation back.
SS: Thank you for so much for this wonderful, interesting interview. That’s it for today, folks, and we will see you in the next edition of Sophie & Co.
This is simply amazing, the border that Israel controls 100%, the border between Jordan and the West Bank, is now open for the very first time… for TRADE!
Yet, the border controlled by the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’, the border between Gaza and Egypt, remains virtually closed to trade.
Let me get this straight, Israel is opening trade in the West Bank, Egypt is maintaining a blockade in Gaza. Even recently pumping raw sewage into the tunnels between Gaza and Egypt, tunnels that are a lifeline of trade since that Egyptian border is closed to trade.
Is this not shocking beyond belief? Is this ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ in any way a reflection of Islam? I find this so shocking and so disgusting it makes me want to vomit.
Let us be clear, the blockade of Gaza is now, 100%, a Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian blockade. Every bit as much as it is an Israeli blockade.
I am embarrassed that the events leading to the removal of Egyptian puppet Mubarak that I supported 100%, have lead to this. God help the true people of Islam, with so many treasonous false Muslims representing you. It seems you need just as much help as we poor souls of the Western hypocrisies that feign ‘democracy’ but in truth are nothing more than governments run by prostitutes in the service of tyranny.
This world needs one thing above all others, sanity. Sane human beings of all colours, all religions or non-religion, all nationalities, we the sane people of the world must unite. Enough already.
PS – I must repeat yet again my absolute position that aid is almost always nothing more than a ploy for infiltration and subversion. Aid is suffocation, it is being buried alive, it is dependency on the tit of tyranny. It is a dead end. Only self-sufficiency and independence is acceptable. This is the only way to a dignified life. I wish and support the way of true independence for Palestine and all of humanity.
It is time to stop being Israel’s Bitch!
I renounced my US citizenship and the United States of Hypocrisy refused to acknowledge my right, our right, to self-determination. Alright then, I am thinking now that maybe I just needed to leave for 10 years or so and reflect on things, now that I have, I have made some important conclusions.
First among them is that it remains an embarrassment, that idiot flag waving Americans have sat by while their Constitution was used like toilet paper and their government became a bought and paid for circus of clowns.
Second is that due to this despicable state of affairs of failing to pay attention on our watch we Americans have continued to be complicit in mass murder that is truly unparalleled in the modern age. God help us for what we are collectively responsible for.
Third, our American sons and daughters continue to be used as the meaningless pawns they are and ultimately, aside from those our sons and daughters murder in foreign lands, aside from those we rape and torture, our sons and daughters themselves are the biggest victims of all. We so pathetically spouted “support our troops”, like idiots, incredible idiots, while effectively sentencing them to a fate that makes post-traumatic stress disorder almost inevitable. Look at the drug abuse, domestic violence, homelessness and suicide rates of returning soldiers and compare it to the returning soldiers of Vietnam, what the fuck are we doing to our supposedly cherished sons and daughters?
I have come to another conclusion, America is almost assuredly going down and going down hard, so hard that it might just bring the whole world down with it, for this reason more than any other I feel a need to exercise the best virtues I obtained as an American born son and do my best to sound the alarm. To reach out to every genuine, not fake ass idiot patriot, but to reach out to the genuine patriots.
And lastly, we need to acknowledge 100% that the American government is bought and paid for by the Zionist, Jewish supremacists, Israeli “dual citizens”, which in truth is a pyramid with the Rothschild’s and their bankster kin at the top. These are the puppet masters and they have used America as their strong arm, if we are so blindingly stupid as to continue this role as their enforcers, we will exterminate not only ourselves but possibly this beautiful world we live in.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki are proof of just how horrendous we have been and thus are capable of being today.
It is time to stop being chumps, it is time to actually give some meaning to the word patriot. It is especially time for those in the police, military and government who took an oath to uphold the Constitution to honor that commitment. Are you a person of honor? Or are you a fraudster? A coward?
I couldn’t care less about fake patriots, but real patriots, I am serious about working with you. Get the fuck up and take the fake ideals of America and make them real. If that were to happen I will happily ask for my citizenship back… until such time I do not give my allegiance to this criminal entity and thus I am not a citizen regardless of the judgments of this corrupt government and its minions.
When America truly becomes a nation of honor I will be proud to stand among its citizens as a genuine member of the family. Let us make this so.
Thank you to Anthony Lawson for his reading.
Words from an honest, intelligent and compassionate Jew… words from a respected brother with a hugely important message that should be heeded by every single Jew on this planet.
“It is so terribly and dramatically disturbing to have been raised Jewish and Zionist, and to see the death and destruction that my people are bringing to the world. It is so frustrating to say, “Grow as I have grown, see what I see” and to only hear the same broken record of Jewish victimization and accusations of “self-hating Jew” in response. If I, as one born and raised in this death-crazed narcissistic cult, don’t know how to resolve this desperate situation, how will anyone else figure it out? Please- Jews- my people- you are desperately sick. The whole world sees this and knows it, and yet so many are afraid to say so for fear of being called “Anti-Semite”, while you kill children and refuse to be embarrassed by your blatantly evident tribal mental illness. But the world will stop being afraid of you, and cease to tolerate your murderous narcissism, and the result will be terrible for you. Please, please stop before this happens. Stop before you kill another child in Palestine! STOP THE KILLING IN GAZA!” Rich Siegel

Today was the final hearing for the case against the Trade Not Aid hijackers Cate (Catherine) Myles (aka Soraya Fitzgerald) and Sammi Coulthard (aka Saja Rana & Maitreyi Atmaja). It cost over £600 in court fees, money that should have gone directly into the cause. It took countless hours of work collecting evidence to establish the crime, something I wish I could have avoided. But today District Judge Evans actually infused just a bit of honour into the embarrassingly corrupt UK system… a system so blatantly servile to Israel/Rothschildland. Today Judge Evans ordered that the stolen 18-ton Renault truck and Metrorider Minibus, along with all donated goods onboard are to be returned to Aloha Palestine CIC & Samouni Project within 28 days.
We also managed to affirm with the judge the need to assess the condition of the vehicles and the likely theft of stolen property onboard before we can identify any necessary financial compensation; thus this can only be assessed when we get access to the vehicles, so within 28 days we shall see.
In the course of the hearing Cate Myles acknowledged that hijacker Cath (Catherine) Jenkins has been in possession of the vehicles on behalf of Catherine Myles, Sammi Coulthard and the so-called “committee” that includes essential hijacker Saeb Shaath. Let it be known however that since Cath Jenkins has had physical possession, any damage to these vehicles will be her direct responsibility. To be clear, hijack “committee” includes Saeb Shaath, Allison Hubbard (aka Vera Lynn), Douglass Myles (aka Gabriel Standish), Jez (Jethro) Cuthbert, and of course Cate Myles, Sammi Coulthard and Cath Jenkins.
Let it be clear that the Facebook slander that sufficed for the UK police to protect these criminals and convince some of you that I am a bad person was pathetically transparent in a court room and the judge appeared genuinely awed by Cate Myles claim to be the “owner” of these vehicles. The judge several times asked hijacker Myles how it was that she could claim ownership when “she had supplied nothing” to support her claim? But again, let us remember that these same bogus arguments worked fine for the corrupt UK police… so Cate Myles was emboldened to lie… continuously… on record and in writing Something I am so grateful for as the official court transcript will be the final nail in Cate Myles coffin proving that she is without doubt, a fraudster, thief and one who has willfully, intentionally perverted the course of justice.
Perverting the course of justice is a serious offence. It can only be tried on indictment and carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The offence is committed where a person:
- does an act (a positive act or series of acts is required; mere inaction is insufficient)
- which has a tendency to pervert and
- which is intended to pervert
- the course of public justice.
Cate Myles claimed numerous times in court and in writing that Trade Not Aid was a “voluntary collective” and get this, that the stolen vehicles were the property of “the people of Gaza”. Oblivious to her own bullshit she unashamedly claimed to be the self-appointed “owner” of the property of the “people of Gaza”. In the course of this argument she supplied not one witness statement, not one bank statement, not one shred of evidence to support that she raised the money or bought the vehicles. It all came back to this illusory “voluntary collective” spiel that is code language for the hijack crew who conspired to steal the Trade Not Aid mission.
Let it be clear that, although I am directly responsible for raising the money to buy these vehicles, I am not now nor was I ever the “owner” of these vehicles, they are in fact the assets of the non-profit companies I formed, companies formed for the expressed and legally mandated benefit of the people of Gaza/Palestine. Aloha Palestine CIC and Samouni Project were formed for reasons of accountability and credibility and the fact that some people were so blind as to not see this only shows the gullibility of many so-called “allies” of Palestine. Let it be clear that I am happy to say good riddance to all those who have judged me negatively and falsely, especially given the fact that Zio/Facebook slander was the primary method of their Godlike judgement. Thank you to the idiots, thank you for exposing yourselves. I will take one known friend over ten thousand false ones any day.
So one step forward, but there is still the matter of the at least £20,000 that was deposited into Cate Myles account in trust for the Trade Not Aid mission. I have compiled a detailed and comprehensive report of 336 pages that exposes the sordid, criminal actions of the hijacking crew, and this evidence has been submitted by me personally to the Hamas Government in Gaza in September 2012. I can assure everyone reading this, that 336 page document makes painfully clear that Cate Myles has stolen this money and fraudulently claimed I was the criminal so as to deflect attention away from her.
While the police in the UK have protected Cate Myles from criminal prosecution here in the UK, I can tell you that the government in Gaza does not blindly swallow the rubbish that incessantly spews from the mouth of Ms. Myles. Evidence is evidence, slander is slander, and that is why I have offered to pay for Cate to travel to Gaza, all expenses paid. Will she take me up on this offer? Of course not, but please Ms. Cate, prove me wrong and take your slander and lies to Gaza and respond to the 336 pages of irrefutable evidence I have submitted to the authorities there.
What is needed now is a genuine revival of support for the Trade Not Aid mission and that means money to get the vehicles inspected, repaired if necessary, stored safely and prepared for the journey to Gaza. But this time I am not going to work seven days a week for free to make it happen. I accept the fact that it is not up to me, it is up to US. It is up to WE the people. I will work a reasonable amount of time, free of charge once again, but only when the money is raised to pay for drivers, and yes I mean paid drivers, will this mission go forward. How long it will take to get the needed funds to purchase the ‘Made in Palestine’ products for export to Europe and beyond is unknown to me and not up to me. It is up to US/WE the people.
So if you really want to make this happen, go to the following link;
Click the ‘Donate’ button and give something. Whether it is £5 or $5 or 50 or 500 is a matter for you to decide, but do not make an excuse. Forgive me my mistakes in trusting some horrible people and give so that these vehicles head to Gaza sooner rather than later.
To be clear, I will receive this money this time around, and has always been the case in the past, all of this money will be used for the stated purpose of the Trade Not Aid mission.
No joking, no fooling… as one of my respected brothers often says. It is time to put up or shut up. There are bee hives and textiles and computers and industrial sewing machines and educational materials and more waiting to be taken to Gaza and given to the Samouni kids and the good people of Gaza. There is a truckload of ‘Made in Palestine’ products waiting to be exported to Europe and beyond and while there are many worthy causes, this is a cause that should have happened long ago. Its time will come when WE make it so… so let’s make it so.
For the full video report on the hijacking of the Trade Not Aid Mission and UK Police Collusion watch the video below.
It is Ken O’Keefe back in Gaza. For the last 14, 15 months, I have been dealing with the results of the hijacking of the Trade Not Aid Mission, now I have provided a link to a video on Vimeo which gets into greater detail about this.
But the short version of the story is that I made a massive mistake by trusting some horrible people particularly Catherine Myles. But she was partnered with Saeb Shaath and some others that effectively infiltrated the Trade Not Aid Mission and stole money, donated goods and vehicles, two vehicles including an 18 ton truck that had been filled with donated goods for the Trade Not Aid Mission.
Now, the trade not aid mission is effectively the brand name for a partnership between the two nonprofit companies, social enterprises that I am the Director of. One, Aloha Palestine CIC, a Community Interest Company and the other one, the Samouni Project.
Now, the Samouni project was formed on the back of my relationship with the Samouni family here in Gaza. I formulated the plan for the Samouni Project with the Samouni family. In fact, the Samouni family put together a board that was comprised of all family members and those family members are the ones that gave me the direction to move forward with the formation of the Samouni Project and the carrying out of the objectives. Now, the two main objectives of the Samouni Project were;
- To get the kids the education that they need because after operation Cast lead and the slaughter of the Samouni family by the Israelis, the children obviously were just a little bit traumatized to say the least. This has adversely affected their school and in this sense, they are just like the rest of the kids of Gaza. It is not just a Samouni family, but the Samouni’s have been so incredibly violated and traumatized that these children are suffering. And, one of the things that they are suffering from is lack of ability to concentrate on school and thus they need real special attention—many of them—to even think about concentrating on school again. Well, here we are nearly four years later and they really don’t have that yet. So this was the goal that was set a year and a half ago when I was here with the Samouni family.
- The other objective of the Samouni Project is in line with Aloha Palestine and my goals as a whole which is “Fuck aid”. Aid is not the answer. Aid, okay, in the extreme circumstances where people are literally going to starve to death, yes, you have to do it. But generally, aid is for the aftermath of a natural disaster when you have a hurricane or a tornado or an earthquake or something like that. Then you need send aid because the people clearly in that emergency situation would not have everything they need to survive. But this is not an emergency situation and natural disaster. This blockade of Gaza is now five years plus; it is human created. It is carried out by both the Israelis and definitely under Mubarak it was the Egyptian side, and more importantly for us in the west, it is carried out with the complicity in the cooperation of our corrupt western governments who are taking all our money and giving’em to the banksters and all this sort of stuff. So without our western governments, this blockade of Gaza which is five years plus couldn’t continue and my goal with the Samouni family is to get beyond the blockade to be able to export products that they can produce because they are far worse (off then so many), be able to have them produce their goods, vegetables, chilies, tomatoes, things like this, dehydrate them. I wanted to bring them a dehydrator and use that dehydrator to dehydrate their vegetables and fruits and then we in turn would work to get them out. The plan of this was really that we would guarantee that those things they produced, we would market abroad. People would pay for them. We would pay the Samouni family with those funds and then it would be our task to export them out. So any of the purchasers of the products would have to understand that if we can’t deliver the product, it is because the blockade is still in place.
So, that was the plan with the Samouni family. That is complemented by Aloha Palestine which I formed with Lauren Booth in late 2008 and the whole objective of Aloha Palestine way back in 2008 was trade not aid, to establish a trade route in and out of Gaza so that the people could import and export and basically be able to develop their economy and get back on their own two feet and live a life of dignity. Even just recently here in Gaza, there is an organization set up on the principle of dignity by the youth here and the only way that dignity can be achieved is by the ability to do trade. And, the trade doesn’t sound as sexy and altruistic as aid and charity but it is more important than aid and charity. This is where we as people really need to think about our critical thinking skills. Do we have them or are we continuously being manipulated in the one stupid dead end or another. Aid is not the answer and I am not the only one saying that. It has been said by the Palestinians for a long time. Go watch a video called Donor Opium on youtube, excellent video. It will tell you a lot about how aid is actually insidious and destructive towards the Palestinians who are now per capita the biggest receivers of ‘AID’ in the world.
So that was Samouni project in Aloha Palestine. Now, I fucked up. I trusted the wrong people; they got on the inside. In that position of trust, they breached the trust, they stole vehicles, they stole donated goods, they stole money. Now, I from the beginning, if this had been dealt with properly by the UK police, this could have been sorted. On August 23rd, I submitted a report to the UK police establishing who raised the money for those vehicles. What the purchase of those vehicles was for which I purchased them. The transfer of funds for those vehicles while I was here in Gaza last year to trusted people on the European side back in the UK. The funds were transferred, authorized by me, the purchase of the vehicles authorized by me, the raising of the money by me and those vehicles were registered in the name of the people who I trusted on that end. They were never the legal owners of the vehicles. They were never the legal owners of the donated goods and they certainly were never the legal owners of the donated moneys which I authorized to be put in the Catherine Myles account because I trusted her. This is my fuck up and I apologize to everyone for my screw up as the leader of the mission, I cannot do anything but take responsibility for my fuck up and I fucked up.
Now, what can I do to recuperate that and correct. What did I do? I went to the UK police. I handed them all the evidence to show the ownership of the vehicles. What did the UK police do? Well, they did what the UK government does and that all the western governments are doing. They acted like the corrupt puppet bastards that they are. They didn’t arrest the criminals who provably had shown had stolen vehicles, donated goods and moneys, no, they arrested me. They ‘investigated’ me for five months and then said, “Oh! No further action.” Yeah no shit no further action. Keep in mind, these people had nine hard drives of mine, had every hard drive I had. They had two computers, the only computers I had. They had paper work. They went through my home; they took everything they wanted. They went through my wife’s underwear drawer. They went through everything in my house. Everything that might have established any kind of criminal activity on my behalf, they had access to it and they had it for five fucking months. I had to deal with that crap. I didn’t have any representation for a while and finally I did get a defense attorney, great man, thank you so much Simon Natas and ultimately the police dropped their farcical bullshit investigation and then they said, “Oh, the vehicles, it is a civil matter.” I then had to file a civil case to recover stolen vehicles which is the 18 ton truck and mini bus converted into the mobile office. Now, that is now still in process and the court system, another story but nonetheless, it looks like I should be recovering in the court system because quite frankly there is no evidence on the side of the criminals to defend what they have done.
I provided that initial report. That was about 108 pages, that initial report. I then supplied a year later, I supplied another 106 page report on the stealing of the vehicles, the stealing of the moneys, the stealing of the donated goods. I handed that over to the police. Who do you turn it over to? I handed it over to the UK police. That was three months ago, haven’t heard back from them and I am talking about bank transfers, witness statements, emails, screenshots, all of it establishing that moneys were taken by Catherine Myles and moneys were transferred into her account and that those moneys are unaccounted for, that they have been stolen based on a principle of some collective and some bullshit group that somehow claims to have taken over the Trade Not Aid mission which they clearly did not. The UK police have dishonored themselves big time. FUCK the UK police that are at the top levels who are corrupt. I don’t fear you, I don’t give a shit what you do. I know who you are and plenty of people know who you are. Just like the UK government. I don’t care what you think you are going to do to me.
Anyway, I have done everything I could to affect legal remedy. But we don’t live in a lawful society. We don’t live with law. Law is violated. Tony Blair’s and George Bush’s, what happens to them? They kill people, what, a million, two million in Iraq, what happens to them? Nothing, there is no law. So the law did not help me. I was foolish to think that they would have. But nonetheless, I have supplied all the evidence to so called legal authorities in the UK; they have done nothing. Now in September just last month, I also compiled a 336 (page) report. This was the conclusive report of everything that happened with the Trade Not Aid Mission. Going back to the formation of Aloha Palestine, all the way through to the present day, this is a conclusive detailed report with every single piece of evidence to establish that those that hijacked the Trade Not Aid Mission, are in fact nothing more than common criminals and thieves. I have established with the evidence that clearly Catherine Myles in particular has committed fraud, she has committed theft. She has committed blackmail and blatantly, fourth, perverted the course of justice. She perverted the course of justice by lying on record to the police saying that she thought that I was the head of a charity, that I had defrauded her and others into thinking that I was a head of a charity and so therefore, they went out to solicit donations for a nonexistent charity. This is bullshit.
Every single thing I have ever said publically, in email privately, has always made clear. I am actually not a fan of charity. Charities are often times the means to infiltrate places like Palestine with over paid NGOs that can buy out the best of the private sector and ultimately get the agenda of the outside powers, the colonial imperial powers into lands like Palestine. I am not a fan of charity. I wouldn’t want to live on charity. I want equality. I want justice and in a just environment, if we partner together, we will be able to provide for ourselves. Fuck charity.
So the idea I ever said that I was the head of a charity is ridiculous. Not only that, but I actually went to Sheikhs, more than one because there is something called Zakat. Muslims are honor bound if they have the means to give a certain amount of their money to charity each year. Now, because my nonprofit companies are not technically a charity, I went to sheikhs, and I asked them listen, is this possible that it would qualify—the zakat—that it would qualify for charity? And effectively, the answer was no. This was very frustrating to me because I knew I couldn’t say that it would qualified as zakat. I wanted to make sure and I did make sure by asking sheikhs, respected sheikhs about this. So I have never once represented myself as the head of a charity. The police could have easily verified that. They could have asked me questions and they could have shown some evidence. Where is the evidence? There is no evidence. And that’s why now, I have got the services of a law firm in London that is representing me in a complaint against the UK police and I can tell you what, they have taken this case free of charge; it is costing me nothing. You know why they are taking the case? Because I have got the fucking police by the balls, that ‘s why, because they have violated my rights. They unlawfully arrested me. They falsely imprisoned me. They assaulted me by taking my DNA and they violated my rights in the European Convention on Human Rights on two different levels.
So all the proof is there, just waiting for the police to give me through, my law firm, to give us all the information that they used to justify my arrest which I can’t wait for that because you know what they is going to do? That is going to show that Catherine Myles once again lied blatantly, perverted the course of justice.
What are the UK police going to do then? Are they going to arrest Catherine Myles? I don’t think so. You know why? Because I believe she is definitely an asset of so called intelligence agencies or perhaps special branch. If not, its impossible to explain why are the UK police protecting this criminal? Why? What is the reason for this? I have the proof. I have submitted some of that proof online. You can look at it if you want.
And for you idiots out there that continue to believe in lives of these criminals, who are you? What have you done?
So, I am here in Gaza, amongst the millions of lies that have been told about me over the last 14 months, especially by Catherine Myles once again. One, I am not welcome. I am barred from Gaza. Here I am, I am in Gaza.
That screen shot will be put up for you to see as well. I am barred from Gaza am I? Well I’m here! I am also been suspected of luring young women into my apartment in Gaza and Hamas nearly arrested me twice. Is that right? Well here I am again. Why aren’t they arresting me?
Not only that, but I have come to Gaza for two primary reasons. Two:
- To apologize to the Samouni family directly. Especially, to the kids. I love those kids and I am so sorry for what I have done to them by my failure to have the right people who can be trusted inside the Trade Not Aid Mission. I have done that now and I have come and I have explained to them my perspective and I have also submitted to them the evidence that I am talking to you about tonight.
- The other reason was to go to the government here. And I have done that now. I have gone to the Minister of Interior and I have gone to the Minister of Justice and I have submitted 4 reports—the ones I have just told you about—the initial report that I wrote in August of 2011, the 80 pages, excuse me it was 80 pages of evidence to the UK police in July of 2012 establishing the fraudster, the criminal, the hijacker, the absolute criminal, Catherine Myles with evidence, verifiable evidence I gave to the UK police in July of 2012. I then have the chronological report—336 pages of it—absolutely conclusive establishing everything that the UK police would need to arrest the right people. And lastly, the complaint filed on my behalf by law firm in London. I have handed all that over. All of that has been handed over to the officials here.
I have made it very clear to the government here in Gaza. I am here, I am ready to answer any question at all. In fact, I want to answer any question and I would like to see any evidence, any evidence that indicts me of anything not only illegal but immoral. Show it to me; I am ready for it. And if there is any legitimate evidence against me, which there isn’t but if there is, let’s go! Let’s go! I am here ready to face it.
So, I don’t consider the UK government anything but a bunch of corrupt bastards quite frankly and their little quisling underlings or the UK police. Which, let’s make no mistake as we get closer to the third world war are going to be called on to do horrible things to the UK people. So, I hope you do the right thing, the good people within the UK police.
I don’t believe the government here in Gaza is as corrupt as you are in the UK. And I have handed over all the evidence to the officials here and I have requested that they take all the evidence they have and if there is sufficient evidence to indict me of anything to charge me, I will come back to Gaza. I am coming back to Gaza because I would not be able to stay here too long this time around. But I am here if any charges need to be leveled. And I am coming back as well and here is my open proposal to Catherine Myles:
Catherine Myles, you still maintain possession of stolen vehicles, donated goods and also at least £20,000 of donated money went into your account all verifiable. You say I stole it, show the proof. How did I get money put into your account? Why was I so stupid as to allow it to be put into your account is really the question for me. But nonetheless, me being as stupid as I was, how did I get my hands on money put into your account because you are going to have to show somehow that it was put into my hands. You can’t do that because you stole it. Now, all evidence is there; it’s all there. Catherine Myles, I have found the funds for you to come to Gaza. We will pay for you to go to Gaza. I will pay for your tickets from the UK to Cairo and then your taxi fare to Gaza and your accommodation in Gaza and your return taxi fare back Cairo, back to the UK. You have a paid, PAID trip to Gaza. You come down to Gaza and all those things that you have said about me, everything you have said about me. I am a white supremacist, I am a Nazi, I am a fraudster. My wife is worse than me. My children are illegitimate.
All of these lies that you have told, all of them, include accusations that I have stolen money and that I have somehow dishonored myself and harmed the Palestinian cause. You bring all your evidence to Gaza and you face the authorities here in Gaza. If you are not willing to do that, now, today, with the Simouni family coming out and making the statement calling on you, demanding you return all of the items back to me. If you don’t do that, let the whole world know and every single person who cares about Palestine, let them all know you have stolen directly from Palestine. You have stolen directly from the Simouni family and even after the Simouni family have demanded that you return all the stolen property back to me as their friend, as their brother, as their trusted partner. If you refuse to do that, let the wrath of the Palestinian Solidarity Movement come to you. Let it come to you. And Saeb Shaath, as a Palestinian, I suggest you tell Catherine Myles to return the stolen goods now as well.
That is my report from Gaza. I look forward to seeing what happens in the near future but let us make no mistake, NO mistake, no matter how corrupt, no matter how evil, no matter how servile and disgusting, there will be justice in this world, there will be justice in Palestine. And we will never give up and you can make damn sure that I will never give up. I will die with my honor and integrity and I believe that we will see Palestine free in the not too distant future.
