"They put their money where their mouth is."

"This is a sad final chapter to an otherwise illustrious career."

Dec. 4 ~ 3 hours 47 minutes ago


   Wayne State University has terminated its Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in Media award after the former White House correspondent claimed that the United States is controlled by "Zionists."

Thomas, 90, told a workshop on anti-Arab bias in Dearborn, Mich., that Jewish influence made it impossible to criticize Israel in the United States.

"Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists," Thomas said on Thursday. "They put their money where their mouth is."



Wayne State University yanked its Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in Media award after the
former White House correspondent once again made comments that are being denounced
as anti-Semitic. Here, Thomas listens to President Barack Obama during a news conference
in May.

The university yanked the award Friday and denounced her comments.

Wayne State "strongly condemns the anti-Semitic remarks made by Helen Thomas," the university said in an e-mailed statement, according to The Associated Press.

Wayne State's Journalism Institute for Media Diversity has given the Helen Thomas award for work that promotes diversity. The award "is no longer helping us achieve our goals," Matthew Seeger, an interim dean, told The Detroit Free Press.

This is not the first time that Thomas has made explosive comments. In June, she was caught on camera saying that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go home to "Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else."

Thomas, the daughter of Lebanese immigrants in Detroit, was once a pioneering political correspondent. She was the first female officer of the National Press Club and the first female member of the White House Correspondents Association. She has covered every president since Eisenhower and was known for her aggressive style.

Thomas quit as a columnist for Hearst newspapers following the June incident. She later apologized for the remarks.

The Anti-Defamation League blasted Thomas on Friday and said her latest comments tarnished her legacy as a journalist.

"Helen Thomas has clearly, unequivocally revealed herself as a vulgar anti-Semite," ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement. "Her suggestion that Zionists control government, finance and Hollywood is nothing less than classic, garden-variety anti-Semitism."

Robert Cohen, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Metropolitan Detroit, applauded Wayne State's decision to withdraw the award.

"I think it was just very ironic that she made these comments at an event, the purpose of which was to address stereotyping," Cohen told the AP. "And it was very disappointing to know that she received a standing ovation from that audience."

Thomas's words also drew criticism from members of her own profession. In a New Republic article titled "Helen Thomas Lets The Mask Slip," Jonathan Chait wrote that she has a problem with Jews.

Chait previously said Thomas' comments about Jews in Palestine were anti-Zionist, rather than anti-Semitic.

"I prefer to hold off on imputing motives of bigotry without strong proof, but there's not a whole lot of doubt remaining here," Chait wrote in The New Republic.

The ADL called on all institutions that have presented Thomas with awards to withdraw them. Thomas has been honored by the Society of Professional Journalists and holds more than 30 honorary degrees, according to the ADL.

"Through her words and deeds she has besmirched both herself and her profession," Foxman said. "This is a sad final chapter to an otherwise illustrious career."

It could not come much more obvious than this, who is really running the US and other countries. Could it?

So Helen is a Semite.  I guess according to the European Foxman she is a self hating Semite.

Yep... at least she is a Semite and not a Khazar.

Actions like this drive rational people away from the US.  The Jewish influence has become suffocating, even life-threatening for the more outspoken.

Welcome back 'istt'!   :)

Indeed! The ''problem'' is it is not just here, its everywhere. Perhaps some day even the sheep will wake up and wonder how in blazes they did not see the light sooner. That time will come, the question is when and how it will all play out.

Wayne State, if I recall properly, is basically a University that upwardly mobile working class people from the Detroit area went to to get an education/degree...Of course, Detroit has had many immigrants: Polish, German, Greek, Middle Eastern...And, of course,  :D Detroit is now of a different color, different persuasion...'The brothers be runnin' things!'  ;D...But, this being said, I am surprised that Wayne State is so obviously under the 'yoke of Zion'...Helen Thomas had a distinguished career, and doesn't deserve to be subjected to such kosher nonsense...She has nothing to be ashamed of, and history will judge her in a more truthful light.

I wholeheartedly agree, Frank. Time will, she has a lot of admirers.

From Arthur Topham:

     Now here is a writer and a write worthy of deep consideration folks. My hat goes off to the
     Dog Poet and my hand rises in a gesture of friendship and unanimity.

     Doggone it but he writes well!

Helen Thomas and the Zio-Ogres from the Synagogue of Satan



Dog Poet Transmitting......Monday, December 6

I wasn’t very happy with Helen Thomas when she apologized for saying what she initially said and after losing her job as well. I’m unhappy with Oliver Stone and others who also apologized for telling the truth, which one should never apologize for. You might apologize for your delivery of the truth (grin). The truth is a combustible agent and can have a severe chemical reaction when it comes into contact with untruth so… a certain amount of delicacy might be called for, if you want to transmit the truth without alienating the person receiving it. I say, ‘may’, because if telling the truth makes you feel like you have to dance around like it was some kind of an embarrassment for you, or you feel the need to shade the truth, to accommodate the feelings of the people who don’t want to hear the truth, then maybe you should be in another business that works harmonically with the ‘same old same old’ and you can get yourself a job with Zio-Ogre International as a auxiliary buttboy, utility, all purpose hack ...or decorative lawn ornament.

I am now very happy with Helen Thomas and I hope her recent behavior becomes a contagion. It may look like she has destroyed her legacy and trashed her reputation in her final years but the fact is, she has put an imprimatur of divine courage and integrity upon the totality of her time here, as opposed to those who possess neither and scream the loudest. She has revealed herself to be more than she was in a profession that never allows you to actually do your job, because you have to cater to the Synagogue of Satan, which owns the media, because it owns the banks, that prints the money out of thin air, which allowed them to buy anything they wanted to buy, while denying that right to anyone else besides a member of the Zio-Ogre Tribe. If Jesus Christ was the flesh embodiment of truth, his greatest enemy was the Pharisees, who were the diametrical opposite of everything he stood for. Two thousand years later, the same truth is under fire from the descendants of the same psychopathic, reptile crew.

In fact, it is Christianity, along with Islam that the Synagogue of Satan wants to destroy because the legacy is a testimony of everything they’ve been up to since they got here. Well, I don’t understand why they should be so hot and bothered about Christianity. The outer form of it has been destroying itself for a long time and it is the biggest materialism based supporter of the Zio-Ogre, Palestinian Genociding, Forced Organ Relocation, Gentile Juicing, All in one Shop until you Drop into your Grave, Halvah Na Gila Monster, non Pork Eating due to Cannibalism Proscription against Consuming your Fellows except in the Marketplace, Band of Organized Creeps on the Planet. Fundie Christianity is the full time fluffer of the Porno King Empire, Relentless Anathema of everything it stands for. Some hypocrisy is so grand and extreme that it ought to bronzed like baby shoes and inconized on all of the cathedrals and institutions where fellatio rhymes with Horatio.

Helen Thomas told the truth and the pig weasel, Abe Foxman, proved it. Helen said, “I can call a president of the United States anything in the book but I can't touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank. No American would tolerate that -- white-only roads… We are owned by the propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is…We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.” Abe Foxman and the Huns of Hell demonstrated that what she said is true. If they don’t control everything that the truth tells us they do control, how is it that they can shut down anyone and anything they don’t like any time they want to? You can’t argue with that. Well you can argue the same way 4.5 million can reduce to 1.5 million and “if 6 were 9” you still got 6, courtesy of Jimi Hendrix.

Helen was good enough to point out that she is a Semite, failing to mention that her detractors are not, which doesn’t stop the ADL, AIPAC and all the rest of the slander meisters from swinging the slur like a machete in the hands of a Filipino ‘mucker’ at everyone in reach. School kids should burn effigies of Theodor Herzl every Halloween as a tribute to one of the scariest and most demented kiddie eating goblins to ever walk the face of the Earth.

No, of course this scourge of humanity does not own the media; yes it does. It does not own Hollywood; yes it does. It does not own the music business; yes it does. It does not own Las Vegas (their main synagogue); yes it does. It does not control the porn industry; yes it does. It does not control most civil rights and all alternative sex organizations; yes it does. It does not own the central banks; yes it does. It does not own up to anything that it does, whenever it does, whatever it wants to do, at the expense of you and all the rest of the shit-scared, confused and seduced, borderline intellects on the planet.

No, they didn’t fake and rewrite history to create a criminal, banking cartel nation called Israel; yes they did. No, they weren’t behind the Bolshevik Revolution and all of the gulags and murders of tens of millions; yes they were. No, they were not principals in the slave trade; yes they were. No, they did not orchestrate the Yom Kippur and Six Days War without provocation and then blame it on the people they attacked; yes they did. No, they did not institute these conflicts as a means to steal more land; yes they did. No they were not behind 9/11; yes they were. No, they did not use it to invade Afghanistan and Iraq to free up the poppy trade and to steal antiquities and oil; yes they did. No, they did not do hundreds of other things just as bad that I don’t have the space to mention; yes they did and no I don’t.

Well, that’s the beauty of the Apocalypse. All of this is coming out and they can’t do anything about it. The divine, in the form of Lord Agni, walked in and set their forest on fire and made a burnt offering of 40 ‘prison guard’ trainees. They demonstrated their fire fighting abilities, which are on a par with their matchup with Hezbollah fighters in pickup trucks. There’s a reason they’re no good at firefighting because consuming fire is entwined with their destiny, waiting in the wings. Drought is walking the land of the crocodile, swine bankers and filling their tortured dreams with visions of Litani River water. Their people in the cluster bomb industry are working overtime to get ready for another child killing spree in Lebanon because they have to steal the water.

Yes, The Apocalypse is revealing it all and there’s nowhere to hide from the truth, which is why they hate the truth like they hate nothing else. These blood soaked vaudevillians are about to get swatted by the cosmic pig bladder, because this is one of the hallmarks of the summing up of this particular age and they are right out there, ‘in your face’ performing live, everything they are denying 24/7 and grabbing every opportunity to expose themselves more and more because that’s how it works in the world of limitless hubris that they define as chutzpah and which both add up to the same spiritual cancer that is defined in their motto; “if it doesn’t work, use force and if that doesn’t work, use more force. Subtle and suave is the order of the day.

It’s coming down and it’s coming up. It’s leaking through the seams. The ones with their fingers in the dyke are going to learn the meaning of a strapon. It’s running like swollen rivers of rage, raised up against them. They have sown Hell fire and now they can reap the whirlwind.

I’d like to think compassion is something I cultivate but I don’t determine the outcome. What I think is small potatoes up against the wisdom and might of the universe. Even as they are exposed as the entities behind so much of humanities ills, they crank up more. Even as it should be apparent to a moron, they persist in pushing and conniving with body scanners and flotilla murders. Every effort at spin through all of the powerful mediums that they control is to no avail. Truth is walking their way with a handgun and a hard-on. Can you blame the universe for finally having had enough?

There’s only one power. You can see it as the divine and you can see it as the devil. Depending on what you are, determines how you see this force and also what your destiny is. There’s hope yet for many. While there is breath there is hope but where are the takers? They’re off somewhere whooping it up in the Malamute Saloon. Good luck with that.

The Terrible Irony of Beautiful Words.

Dog Poet Riffing.......Saturday, December 4, 2010


beautiful words

beautiful words

do not move me…

I am not entranced by this clever art

I’ve watched the bloody scroll of history

Unroll

While the band played on

And ugly men made beautiful noise

To introduce the thunder of their guns

There is no greater coward

Than the one who slipped by privilege past the front

To orchestrate from the sidelines

What he could not accomplish himself;

Whose skin was too precious to risk

And wrapped in the cloak of God ranting sanctimony

This shrinking nightshade

This empty suit

with the pomp of the preening jackal

Dines on the awful cries of the dying

That he sups like an intoxicating and wondrous wine

He feeds on the torment of the injured and estranged

Wrapped in the cloak of patriotic hypocrisy

He gestures at the battlefield

From which democracy will be ripped stillborn

From the blasted body of her dead mother

The still greater crime of previous event

The falling towers were no accident

Nor did some strangers from afar

Manufacture this without consent

It should to the objective mind

Prove self evident

Across the centuries

The wind of high blown rhetoric

Have driven the millions to an evil death

And yet it never seems to dawn

How like frightened steers they trample what is before them

into the ground.

And yet it never seems to dawn...

Something there is in the ignorant mind

That vibrates to the sympathetic string

Of the conscious and applied evil of the Hyena King

Something resonates

Something capitulates

Something rises

As something descends

And all that is decent and good

All that would bring forth a greater brotherhood

Must run to the cover of the invisible wings

While a murder of crows blackens the sky

And smoking ruins

Like new buildings

are transformed before your eyes

Into a wasteland of fire and death

For the profit of the few

For the comfort of some

The usual business will go on

It seems that this must be

Though we have waited with insufficient hope

Perhaps we shall see the day

That these twisted carrion feeders

These iniquitous deceivers

The butchers and the reavers

And all their demonic crew

Shall march into hell fire

Into Their native homeland created from their own need

And the door will close upon the echo

Of all their beautiful words


End riff.......

Thanks for posting the latest piece from the Malamute Saloon sushi.

The Dog Poet's transmissions appear to be automatic rather than the old floor shift or gear shift variety. Smooth and quiet and full of momentum.

Love it!

Dog Poet's style is quite interesting and he is a very good writer too, as are you.

I have a question regarding John Kaminski, I like some of his work, and have posted a few of
his articles. I have been told more than once that he is a shill and a Jew. Well, so was Arthur
Koestler, Benjamin Friedman and others, whose works I know about and read some essays.

I have not met John Kaminski, but for some reason he does not strike me as a shill.

You know him better, I think, what is your opinion, Arthur? I posted this article below:

"Helen said, “I can call a president of the United States anything in the book t I can't touch Israel"

As always, if you want to know who's really in charge just find out who you're not allowed to criticize.
