Doss, very well said your comment. Over weekend I was pleased by an American
professor visiting my humble archives. He said that the USA [[i.e. the
ruling black magic high masons, not the innocent citizens or masons]] is the
biggest terrorist in the world together with Russia [[which since 1917 is
just a colony of the Rothschild East coast]].
Also Sunday we had a city election in Berlin. All our "democratic" (i.e.
commanded by the Lodge of mammon) parties declared satisfaction with the
present war of world no. 1 against world no. 220, except the post-communist
PDS, former ruling party in East Germany before 1989. The PDS declared that
the war is imperialistic and the USA want nothing else as the gas and oil in
Afghanistan. The PDS now reached 47% in the east part.
One must know that our "democratic" and "free" mass media drums every day
for the war and for "freedom" and for "demo-crazy" and that all journalists
of Germany's biggest media tycoon Springer Verlag according to their own
information had to sign some days after Sept. 9 a declaration that they are
not allowed to write any critical word against the US or Israel governments.
Therefore the election results are double interesting. Could it be that the
people begin to think for themselves and that the swindling mass media begin
to loose influence???
