MEET SHMEAT, MEAT OF THE FUTURE


 
Ugh, this sounds awful. Animals taste like the food they are given, so I can only imagine what a chunk of chemically grown meat would taste like. Not to mention it’s the marbled fat in meats that gives it the best flavor.

Also, only about 1.2 million are employed in agriculture, fishing, and processing of farming related fields. http://www.bls.gov/oco/cg/cgs001.htm So sorry, the waves of farmers going to cities in the US already happened, largely thanks to mechanization.

Yes, there are issues with meat production but eating artificial meat is the last place I would look to solve that problem.


Put down that ecological-travesty of a hamburger! In vitro meat is what's cooking.
December 20, 2011

The holiday season is over and if you're anything like the average Canadian, you reunited with family, sharing gifts and warm memories of the past year ~ very likely over the roasted, braised, broiled, or baked carcass of a dead animal.

For those conscientious carnivores who regard their holiday spread as a moral minefield ~ who annually anguish over the creatures killed and the carbon consumed for the sake of their seasonal feasting ~ thanks to modern science, you may soon have your meat and your conscience too.

Indeed, if some experts are to be believed, the Christmas turkey of the not-so-distant future will be cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and entirely man-made.

Ripped from the least appetizing pages of science fiction, a small group of scientists around the world are hard at work growing meat outside the body of a living organism. Imagine chicken breast, only without the unpleasant business of actually killing a chicken for the pleasure. This is meat grown entirely in vitro.

MEET SHMEAT

In vitro meat starts its journey to your plate as a white blotch on the surface of a petri-dish. This blotch is composed of stem-cells collected from the animal, whose meat is eventually cooked and consumed. Thus ends the significant but bit role the animal plays in the process of growing its meat, presumably much to the relief of the biopsied, but otherwise unperturbed, donor.

"Fed" by a nutrient-rich bath of minerals, vitamins, sugars, and amino acids, the stem-cell culture grows into a slightly larger blotch before being placed onto an organic support scaffold and popped into a steel cylindrical biochemical reactor. 

Once secured within the reaction, which mimics the environment inside the body of an animal, the culture is left to develop into muscle tissue, stretch out its fibrous tendrils and grow like the living tissue that it bizarrely is. 

Lacking a circulatory system to carry oxygen to deeper layers of tissue, the muscle can only grow along its scaffold in microscopically thin sheets of protein. If you were picturing a steak sitting in a bioreactor, think carpaccio instead. Once the muscle has grown sufficiently, this sheet meat (or irresistibly, "shmeat") is removed from its support, ground up, and salted to taste. Bon appétit.

Shmeat is only one of the terms that has been used to describe this animal-free meat with varying degrees of scientific precision. Others nicknames include "in vitro meat," "cultured meat," "test-tube meat," "petri pork," "vat-grown veal," and "Franken-burger." Surely whatever technical hurdles still stand in the way of the mass production of shmeat, none will pose a larger challenge than devising a marketable brand name for meat grown in a vat of nutrient bath.

For the sake of accuracy if not commercial appeal, Nicholas Genovese, a University of Missouri bioengineer and one of North America's leading cultured meat researchers, says he prefers the term "hydroponic meat."

"Like hydroponic vegetables that are cultivated in a nutrient medium without soil, cultured meat is cultivated in a nutrient medium without animal development," he explains.

MEAT THAT ISN'T MURDER

Ignoring any obvious dissimilarities between soil-less lettuce gardening and harvesting animal flesh from petri-dishes, the analogy is useful: in both forms of hydroponic cultivation, the cultivators are no longer bound by the physical, climactic, and in the case of meat production, moral constraints, of traditional cultivation methods.
Chief among those constraints is the conventional connection between eating an animal and killing it beforehand. Genovese is a vegetarian and gets most of his funding from PETA (yes, that PETA). As he sees it, the first and most obvious promise of in vitro meat technology is that with a single innovation, the annual slaughter of roughly 60 billion animals worldwide will suddenly become that much more difficult to justify.

There are other potential benefits. Genevose says the ability to fine-tune the production process may actually make cultured meat superior to the traditional alternative. Since the fat content of lab-grown meat would have to be cultured and added separately, shmeat producers could conceivably leave out saturated fat (the "bad" fat), infuse the product with essential fatty acids (the "good" fat), or otherwise tailor the product to the health preferences of a consumer.

For those unconvinced by considerations of ethics and public health, the advent of shmeat is also liable to liven up the menu at your local restaurant. Because cultured meat demands nothing more from the source-animal than a minimally invasive biopsy, there would be nothing to stop the cultivation of what Genovese elusively referred to in one interview as the "artisan meats of novel species." If that seems like an unnecessarily oblique way of phrasing things, that may be because a PETA-sponsored bioengineer is not likely to list among the benefits of cultured meat production the chance to finally eat panda burgers.

CHURCHILL'S CHICKEN

Shmeat is hardly a new idea.

As far back as 1932, Winston Churchill predicted that "50 years hence, we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium."

Give or take a few decades, humankind took a major step towards escaping that absurdity when, in 2001, researchers at Touro College in New York made a macabre but meaningful discovery: when flesh sliced from the belly of a living goldfish was placed in a nutrient-rich solution derived from (why not?) fetal cow blood, the newly liberated fish muscle continued to grow, separate from its erstwhile host.

Since that observation, interest and innovation in cultured meat production has taken off. In 2004, the government of the Netherlands committed over $2 million euros towards in vitro meat research. Around the same time, PETA, espying the potential of "cruelty-free meat," started funding Genovese to study with American cell biologist, Vladimir Mironov of the Medical University of South Carolina.

In 2008, the animal rights organization began offering a $1 million prize to the first team of scientists who can produce a piece of in vitro chicken indistinguishable from the real thing.

"When we first announced the contest, our primary intent was to get in vitro meat into the mainstream consciousness and to light a fire under cash-strapped scientists," says Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder and president of PETA. "But recent progress has been such that now I'm beginning to think we may have to actually fork the money over."

If PETA does end up mailing a cheque out anytime soon, it will likely be sent to an address in Eindhoven, the Dutch university town that Michael Specter dubbed in a New Yorker article published last spring, "the in vitro meat world's version of Silicon Valley."

It was in his Einhoven lab in 2009 that researcher Mark Post was able to produce an in vitro meat sample of pig meat, albeit a "soggy form of pork." Having since improved his technique (Post's team now use small pieces of Velcro to "exercise" their muscle samples into a more lithesome firmness), Post now promises to have a cultured meat cow-based prototype (that is, a hamburger) towards the end of 2012.

But according to Genovese, burgers are only the first of many complicated steps in hydroponic meat production. The engineering feat of producing hamburger meat, essentially ground-up muscle fiber, is nowhere near as complex a task as crafting a whole cut of muscle in all its textured complexity ~ be it chicken for PETA's context, or anything else.

Payout or not, PETA's contribution to the cause of shmeat is undeniable. But in her full-fledged support of in vitro meat, Newkirk has not won the unanimous support of the PETA rank-and-file.

"There's been a row within the vegetarian and vegan community," she says, without the slightest hint of regret in her voice. "Those who are vegetarian or vegan for religious reasons or for reasons of personal purity will certainly not wish to sully their hands, but here we are faced with a horror that we must combat. We're pragmatists and we think this will stop untold suffering."

Newkirk says that while PETA will continue to preach the benefits of an animal-free diet, she also recognizes that moral admonition will only do so much to curb the skyrocketing consumption of meat worldwide.

Unlikely and unappealing though it may seem, she says, the "science fiction plot" of in vitro meat is, like methadone for a junkie, the best chance of getting the world to drop its meat habit.

"In the same way, this is certainly something that environmentalists should be embracing," she says.

And many already have.


MEAT'S BIG CARBON HOOFPRINT

At a Ted speaking event in Einhoven last May, Post gave a short presentation discussing the advantages of a meat production system divorced from livestock. In the same way that Winston Churchill viewed conventional meat agriculture as an "absurdity," a glaring industrial efficiency epitomizing the scientific primitivism of his era, Post points out the ecological cost of that inefficiency.

Viewed in purely mechanical terms, he explains, an animal's capacity to convert plant matter into animal muscle and fat is remarkably inefficient. Vast amounts of land and water are required to produce a given pound of meat. This is land and water that could be used to produce vegetable matter much more efficiently, with all that implies for global food allocation and commodity prices.

Meanwhile, the ecological impact of making meat, says Post, is devastating.

According to a 2006 U.N. report, 30 per cent of the world's ice-free land is dedicated to meat-destined livestock or to the grain and plant-life that sustains them. By another measure, these animals suck up, require for their food, or contaminate with their prodigious amount of waste eight per cent of all the freshwater that humanity consumes in a given year. The meat industry is an aggressive deforester and an unending fount of smelly, greenhouse gases. Belching, flatulent cows produce 39 per cent of human methane emissions.

"A meat-eater with a bicycle is actually much more environmentally unfriendly than a vegetarian with a Hummer," quips Post.

There are plenty of reasons to believe that shmeat would do better. While land and water would still be needed to grow the nutrient "feed" of cultured meat, the feedstock could conceivably be based on something as resource-sparing as blue-green algae. Industrial-sized bioreactors would require energy certainly, but that energy need not be carbon-intensive. Waste pollution, clear cutting, and methane emissions would all be minimal to non-existent.

In June of this year, Oxford environmental economist Hanna Tuomisto decided to put this question to the test. Teaming up with University of Amsterdam microbiologist M. Joost Teixeira de Mattos, the two measured the greenhouse gas emissions and the energy, land, and water use of European beef, sheep, poultry, and pork husbandry. Then they estimated the same of in vitro meat production, extrapolating up to commercial scale based on the technique currently practiced in Einhoven.

Admittedly, given the gaps that still exist in cultured meat technology, it was an imperfect exercise.

"There is a lot of uncertainty because we don't know exactly what the ultimate process will be," Toumisto says. "But at this point we do know what kind of conditions would be required to produce cultured meat, so it's possible to model the system."

Not surprisingly, Toumisto and Mattos estimated that cultured meat production would required only a small fraction of the water and land used by traditional meat agriculture, while emitting 78 to 96 per cent of the greenhouse gases to produce the same amount of meat. The only category in which cultured meat did not emerge as the undisputed greener option was in energy-use, where traditional poultry farming proved to be moderately more energy efficient.


THE HUBRIS OF CULTURED MEAT

Even if Toumisto's results are taken at face value, identifying shmeat as the next innovation in green technology might be a hard sell to those most concerned about the ecological impact of their meals.

In many ways, it's the presumption of technological preeminence ~ mankind's penchant for harnessing, circumventing, or dominating natural processes when we find them inconvenient ~ that makes the feedlot so barbaric and the factory farm so noxious.

When livestock are tightly crammed into cages, shot full of hormones, and preemptively fed antibiotics on a daily, it is because the natural way of raising soon-to-be meat was considered inefficient.

One could argue that, like the proposal to spray reflective aerosols into the atmosphere to mitigate global warming, in vitro meat doubles-down on the way of thinking that got us into this mess in the first place. If meat-eaters want eco-friendly, the logic goes, they should support agriculture that is less industrialized, more in tune with nature, and more organic.

Shmeat, by contract, might just be the least organic method of producing meat imaginable.

"How ethical can it be to divorce ourselves entirely from the environment on which we depend?" asked Rebecca Kneen, co-secretary of the Certified Organic Associations of British Columbia (COABC) in an email exchange with The Tyee. "How 'green' can it be to ignore our environment in favor of high-tech (therefore, very energy consumptive) 'solutions'?"

Toumisto says she's heard these arguments before. Whenever she meets someone outside of the field and explains to them the subject of her research, she gets the same reaction.

"There is the comment that cultured meat is 'unnatural,'" she says. "But the current way of producing conventional meat is not natural either. If we look at animal conditions at large-scale production facilities, this is not natural."

And to the extent that animal muscle that is grown outside of animal is still 100 per cent animal muscle, there's nothing necessarily inorganic about shmeat. In theory, there is nothing about in vitro meat production that requires the use of antibiotics, hormones, or genetic modification.

It's the production process, not the ingredients, which are artificial. What nature does inside an animal, scientists hope to mimic and streamline inside a bioreactor. That may be unnatural, says Toumisto, but it shouldn't seem so unusual.

"People don't realize that so many of the food products we eat, like cheese or yogurt, are produced in very similar conditions to cultured meat," she says.


2012: THE YEAR OF SHMEAT

The absolute outlandishness of cultured meat technology may prompt moral, practical, or simply visceral objection among many, says PETA's Newkirk, but that sense of outlandishness is bound to fade once shmeat hits the grocery store shelves.

And shmeat will hit those shelves, she says. It's only a matter of time.

"When you first introduce a new innovation, there's a knee-jerk reaction," she says. "People are very conservative in their tastes ~ especially when it comes to food."

But once all the kinks in the technology are worked out ~ once an organic and affordable muscle scaffold is developed and an industrial scale bio-reactor is constructed and a viable nutrient source is produced and once the whole process is optimized and the costs of producing a sandwich are brought down out of the six-figure range ~ Newkirk predicts that people will get over their inhibitions.

Once people start to find themselves standing in the chill of the supermarket meat aisle, asked to choose between a strip steak that has done substantial harm and a strip steak that hasn't, the transition, she says, will be "inevitable."

It may be some time before all of those kinks are worked out, but progress (if you wish to call it that) is on the march. In just a few months, it will be marching to Vancouver.

The American Association for the Advanced of Science (AAAS) will be holding their annual convention in the rainy city in mid-February. With dozens of seminars being held over the five-day convention on issues as diverse as cancer research, particle physics, and education reform, Nicholese Genovese and Vladimir Mironov will be organizing "The Next Agriculture Revolution: Emerging Production Methods for Meat Alternatives." A veritable shmeat symposium, Mark Post will be one of the key lecturers. A few months later, June 30 will mark the deadline of PETA's non-chicken-based chicken competition. A few months after that, Post is due to unveil his $300,000 hamburger.

For better or worse, these are exciting times in the world of shmeat.

"Future Flesh" is squatting on your plate. Are you nervous? Stab it with a fork. Sniff it. Bite! Chew, swallow. Congratulations! Relax and ruminate now because you’re digesting a muscular invention that will massively impact the planet.

in-Vitro Meat ~ aka tank steak, sci fi sausage, petri pork, beaker bacon, Frankenburger, vat-grown veal, laboratory lamb, synthetic shmeat, trans-ham, factory filet, test tube tuna, cultured chicken, or any other moniker that can seduce the shopper’s stomach ~ will appear in 3-10 years as a cheaper, healthier, "greener" protein that’s easily manufactured in a metropolis.

Its entree will be enormous; not just food-huge like curry rippling through London in the 1970s or colonized tomatoes teaming up with pasta in early 1800s Italy. No. Bigger. In-Vitro Meat will be socially transformative, like automobiles, cinema, vaccines.

H+ previously discussed In-Vitro Meat, as have numerous other publications [see references at the end of this article]. Science pundits examined its microbiological struggles in Dutch labs and at New Harvest, a Baltimore non-profit. Squeamish reporters wasted ink on its "yucky" and "unnatural" creation, while others wondered if its "vegan" or not (PETA supports it but many members complain).

This article jumps past artificial tissue issues; anticipating success, I optimistically envision Eight Ways In-Vitro Meat Will Change Our Lives.

1. BYE-BYE RANCHES.
When In-Vitro Meat (IVM) is cheaper than meat-on-the-hoof-or-claw, no one will buy the undercut opponent. Slow-grown red meat & poultry will vanish from the marketplace, similar to whale oil’s flame out when kerosene outshone it in the 1870′s.
Predictors believe that IVM will sell for half the cost of its murdered rivals. This will grind the $2 trillion global live-meat industry to a halt (500 billion pounds of meat are gobbled annually; this is expected to double by 2050).

Bloody sentimentality will keep the slaughterhouses briefly busy as ranchers quick-kill their inventory before it becomes worthless, but soon Wall Street will be awash in unwanted pork bellies.

Special Note: IVM sales will be aided by continued outbreaks of filthy over-crowded farm animal diseases like swine flu, Mad Cow, avian flu, tuberculosis, brucellosis, and other animal-to-human plagues. Public hysteria will demand pre-emptive annihilation of the enormous herds and flocks where deadly pathogens form, after safe IVM protein is available.
2. URBAN COWBOYS.
Today’s gentle drift into urbanization will suddenly accelerate as unemployed livestock workers relocate and retrain for city occupations. Rural real estate values will plummet as vast tracts of ranch land are abandoned and sold for a pittance (70% of arable land in the world is currently used for livestock, 26% of the total land surface, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization). New use for ex-ranch land? Inexpensive vacation homes; reforested parks; fields of green products like hemp or bamboo. Hot new city job? Techies and designers for In-Vitro Meat factories.
3. HEALTHIER HUMANS.
In-Vitro Meat will be 100% muscle. It will eliminate the artery-clogging saturated fat that kills us. Instead, heart-healthy Omega-3 (salmon oil) will be added. IVM will also contain no hormones, salmonella, e. coli, campylobacter, mercury, dioxin, or antibiotics that infect primitive meat. I’ve noted above that IVM will reduce influenza, brucellosis, TB, and Mad Cow Disease.
Starvation and kwashiokor (protein deficiency) will be conquered when compact IVM kits are delivered to famine-plagued nations. The globe’s water crises will be partially alleviated, due to our inheritance of the 8% of the H2O supply that was previously gulped down by livestock and their food crops. We won’t even choke to death because IVM contains no malicious bones or gristle. (Although Hall of Fame slugger Jimmy Foxx choked to death on a chicken bone, about 90% of meat victims are murdered by steak).
4. HEALTHIER PLANET.
Today’s meat industry is a brutal fart in the face of Gaia. A recent Worldwatch Institute report ("Livestock and Climate Change") accuses the world’s 1.5 billion livestock of responsibility for 51% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions.
Statistics are truly shitty: cattle crap 130 times more volume than a human, creating 64 million tons of sewage in the United States that’s often flushed down the Mississippi River to kill fish and coral in the Gulf of Mexico. Pigs are equally putrid. There’s a hog farm in Utah that oozes a bigger turd total than the entire city of Los Angeles. Livestock burps and farts are equally odious and ozone-destroying. 68% of the ammonia in the world is caused by livestock (creating acid rain), 65% of the nitrous oxide, 37% of the methane, 9% of the CO2, plus 100 other polluting gases.

Big meat animals waste valuable land ~ 80% of Amazon deforestation is for beef ranching, clear-cutting a Belgium-sized patch every year. Water is prodigiously gulped ~ 15,000 liters of H20 produces just one kilogram of beef. 40% of the world’s cereals are devoured by livestock.

This scenario is clearly unsustainable, and In-Vitro Meat is the sensible alternative. (Although skeptics warn that IVM factories will produce their own emissions, research indicates that pollution will be reduced by at least 80%.) Once we get over the fact that IVM is oddly disembodied, we’ll be thankful that it doesn’t shit, burp, fart, eat, over graze, drink, bleed, or scream in pain.
5. ECONOMIC UPHEAVAL.
The switch to In-Vitro Meat will pummel the finances of nations that survive on live animal industries. Many of the world leaders in massacred meat (USA, China, Brazil) have diversified incomes, but Argentina will bellow when its delicious beef is defeated.
New Zealand will bleat when its lamb sales are shorn. And ocean-harvesting Vietnam and Iceland will have to fish for new vocations. Industries peripherally dependent on meat sales, like leather, dairy and wool, will also be slaughtered. Hide and leather-exporting nations like Pakistan and Kenya will be whipped, but South Korea will profit on its sales of "Koskin" and other synthetic leathers.

Huge plantations of livestock crops (soybeans & corn) in Brazil, USA, Argentina, and China can be replaced with wool substitutes like sisal. Smaller nations that excel in food processing will thrive because they’ll export IVM instead of importing tonnage of frozen meat. Look for economic upticks in The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, France, and especially Japan, who’s currently one of the globe’s largest importers of beef.
6: EXOTIC & KINKY CUISINE.
In-Vitro Meat will be fashioned from any creature, not just domestics that were affordable to farm. Yes, ANY ANIMAL, even rare beasts like snow leopard, or Komodo Dragon. We will want to taste them all. Some researchers believe we will also be able to create IVM using the DNA of extinct beasts ~ obviously, "DinoBurgers" will be served at every six-year-old boy’s birthday party.
Humans are animals, so every hipster will try Cannibalism. Perhaps we’ll just eat people we don’t like, as author Iain M. Banks predicted in his short story, "The State of the Art" with diners feasting on "Stewed Idi Amin."

But I imagine passionate lovers literally eating each other, growing sausages from their co-mingled tissues overnight in tabletop appliances similar to bread-making machines. And of course, masturbatory gourmands will simply gobble their own meat.
7: FARMSCRAPERS.
The convenience of buying In-Vitro Meat fresh from the neighborhood factory will inspire urbanites to demand local vegetables and fruits. This will be accomplished with "vertical farming" ~ building gigantic urban multi-level greenhouses that utilize hydroponics and interior grow-lights to create bug-free, dirt-free, quick-growing super veggies and fruit (from dwarf trees), delicious side dishes with IVM.
No longer will old food arrive via long polluting transports from the hinterlands. Every metro dweller will purchase fresh meat and crispy plants within walking distance. The success of FarmScrapers will cripple rural agriculture and enhance urbanization.
8. WE STOP THE SHAME.
In-Vitro Meat will squelch the subliminal guilt that sensitive people feel when they sit down for a carnivorous meal. Forty billion animals are killed per year in the United States alone; one million chickens per hour.
I list this last even though it’s the top priority for vegetarians, because they represent only 1-2% of the population, but still… IVM is a huge step forward in "Abolitionism" ~ the elimination of suffering in all sentient creatures.
Peter Singer, founding father of Animal Liberation, supports IVM. So does every European veggie group I contacted: VEBU (Vegetarian Federation of Germany), EVA (Ethical Vegetarian Alternative of Belgium), and the Dutch Vegetarian Society. And PETA, mentioned earlier, offers $1 million to anyone who can market a competitive IVM product by 2012.

My final prediction is this: In-Vitro Meat relishes success first in Europe, partly because its "greener," but mostly they already eat "yucky" delicacies like snails, smoked eel, blood pudding, pig’s head cheese, and haggis (sheep’s stomach stuffed with oatmeal).

In the USA, IVM will initially invade the market in Spam cans and Hot Dogs, shapes that salivating shoppers are sold on as mysterious & artificial, but edible & absolutely American.

QUOTES BY JEWS

“The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs or ceremonies we observe – whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists – we follow the Talmud. It is our common law.” ~ Herman Wouk

WISE WORDS AND WARNINGS OF WICKEDNESS


"If [Jews] are as wise as they claim to be, they will labour to make Jews American, instead of labouring to make America Jewish. The genius of the United States of America is Christian in the broadest sense, and its destiny is to remain Christian. This carries no sectarian meaning with it, but relates to a basic principle which differs from other principles in that it provides for liberty with morality, and pledges society to a code of relations based on fundamental Christian conceptions of human rights and duties." ~ Henry Ford

“It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.” ~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Chapter 11

**********

The real God of the Universe does not have “Chosen” in the first place because he is perfect as we understand and predilection is a human weakness. The Jews invented the OT to fool humanity as always. The real God of the Universe does not send any body to kill, destroy his own creation, to rape, to maim, to create misery and havoc on other people. Don’t you get it? the God in the OT is a monster, is another one of the many Gods in the dessert, those sacrifices offered to God are Satanic as their name and the Jews keep offering sacrifices to their God. Last year they immolated thousands of human beings in Gaza to their God Baal, Moloch, Azazel, Satan, Lucifer. ~Isaas, TUT

"I had been asked to sign a pledge for Israel when I first became a candidate for Congress and after refusing to do so my congressional career became trench warfare, hand to hand combat just to remain in the congress.


Ever since my refusal to sign that pledge for Israel the pro-Israel lobby let me know that my political net was in the hangman's noose it was the pro-Israel lobby they decided to tighten that noose." ~ Cynthia McKinney

"Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, scheming, agile, speculating Jews ~ such as Jews are everywhere: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, reporters for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank and the other in the socialist movement, and with their arses sitted upon the German daily press ~ they have taken possession of all the newspapers ~ and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which glut a single profiteering sect, a nation of blooksuckers, a single gluttonous parasite closely and intimately interlinked not only across national borders, but across all differences of political opinion ~ this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and, at the same time, at the disposal of Rothschild.

**********

This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the largest banks? Ho-ho! The Communism of Marx seeks an enormous centralization of the state, and where such exists, there must inevitably be a central state bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, which profiteers from the labour of others, will always find a way to prevail. In reality, for the proletariat, this would be a barrack regime, under which the working men and the working women, converted into a uniform mass, would rise, fall asleep, work, and live at the beat of the drum." ~ Bakunin (1814-1876)

“We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the head rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very filthy, came down and met the General (Eisenhower)...The smell was so terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later lost my lunch as the result remembering it." ~ General Patton in Germany, diary entry Sept 17, 1945

The U.S. Congress officially recognized the Noahide Laws in legislation that was passed by both houses. Congress and the President of the U. S., George Bush, indicated in Public Law 102-14, 102nd Congress, that the United States of America was founded upon the Seven Universal Laws of Noah, and that these Laws have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization. They also acknowledged that the Seven Laws of Noah are the foundation upon which civilization stands and that recent weakening of these principles threaten the fabric of civilized society, and that justified preoccupation in educating the Citizens of the U.S. of America and future generations is needed. For this purpose, this Public Law designated March 26, 1991 as Education Day.”

Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East.” ~ Fr. John Sheehan, S.J.

**********

The cruel canard ‘anti-Semitic’ does not apply for many reasons, not the least of which is the simple fact that the slanderous word itself is derived from language games for purposes of propaganda and in real world context has no validity. ~ Tom Valentine

**********

Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker.

Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy.

Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot'

And on issues that seem important to you,

Stand up and be counted at any cost.

~ Thomas J Watson (1874-1956)

'There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.' ~ John Swinton, former Chief of Staff, The New York Times, 1953

WHAT TALMUDICS THINK

Historically, Jews had always thrived in nations and empires with multicultural, pluralistic and tolerant environments, while they fared badly in strong ethnic or nationalistic societies. European Jews have always been the emblematic stranger or ‘other’. Therefore, by definition, a society where the stranger is welcome is good for the Jews, although they have not always appreciated this link. The future of European Jewry is dependent on our ability to shape a multicultural, pluralistic and diverse society. ~ Göran Rosenberg, Jewish author and journalist

**********

American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief ~ one firmly rooted in history ~ that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of U.S. Jews to endorse ‘gay rights’ and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called ‘social’ issues. ~ Charles Silberman, Jewish writer and journalist

**********

The Jew … Judaizes … he provokes religious indifference, but he also imposes on those whose faith he destroys, his own concept of the world, of morality, and of human life. The Jews detests the spirit of the nation in the midst of which they live. ~ Bernard Lazare

**********

We will legally define the Talmud as the basis of the Israeli legal system. ~ Benjamin Netanyahu

**********

REVENGE OF THE JEWISH RABBIS OF SPAIN
In 1492 CE, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion (after the fall of Muslim rule in spain).

This was the reply:

” Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves. The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.
2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.
3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.
4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. [Emphasis mine]
5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.
6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.

(Signed) PRINCE OF THE JEWS OF CONSTANTINOPLE.”
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----
The reply is found in the sixteenth century Spanish book, La Silva Curiosa, by Julio-Iniguez de Medrano (Paris, Orry, 1608), on pages 156 and 157, with the following explanation: “This letter following was found in the archives of Toledo by the Hermit of Salamanca, (while) searching the ancient records of the kingdoms of Spain; and, as it is expressive and remarkable, I wish to write it here.” ~ vide, photostat facing page 80. ~ The above was quoted from Waters Flowing Eastward by Paquita de Shishmareff, pp. 73-74

“[1] When the Lord your God brings you into the land that you are about to enter and occupy, and he clears away many nations before you ~ the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations mightier and more numerous than you – [2] and when the Lord your God gives them over to you and you defeat them, then you must utterly destroy them. Make no covenant with them and show them no mercy” (Deut 7:1-2).

"Compassion towards the wicked is really wickedness. It is along these lines that Rabbi Levi opened his speech in honor of Purim: (Talmud, Megillah, 11a): "If you do not uproot the inhabitants of the Land, and allow them to remain - they will become thorns in your sides, and will cause trouble for you in the Land in which you dwell." (Bamidbar 33:55) The mitzvah, then of wiping out Amalek [Palestinians], actually stems from the value of compassion and kindness - compassion on all those whom Amalek threatens to exterminate. This mitzvah is an ongoing one, and valid even today. Today, too, there are those - driven by a deep-seeded anti-Semitism - who desperately wish to kill us. These are the people whom the Torah commanded us to obliterate, to leave no memory of them." ~ Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed

Nachman Abramovic demonized Palestinian children stating: “They may look young to you, but these people are terrorists at heart. Don’t look at their deceptively innocent faces, try to think of the demons inside each of them. I am absolutely certain these people would grow to be evil terrorists if we allowed them to grow. Would you allow them to grow to kill your children or finish them off right now? Honest and moral people ought to differentiate between true humans and human animals. We do kill human animals and we do so unapologetically. Besides, who in the West is in a position to lecture us on killing human animals. After all, whose hands are clean?”

"The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism." ~ Rabbi Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 143-144

The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order, the “children of Israel” will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled in which it is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands. ~ Baruch Levy in a letter to Karl Marx.

Gentiles exist only to serve Jews as slaves. Goyim were only born to serve us. Without that they have no place in the world. Only to serve the people of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They are only here to work. They will work, they will plow. They will reap. We will sit like effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created,” Rabbi Yosef, Sha Party, Jerusalem Post, 2011

"An example of the use of the Jewish code words Esau and Jacob is found in a sermon preached by Rabbi Leon Spitz during the Purim observances in 1946 (quoted here from the American Hebrew of March 1, 1946) : "Let Esau whine and wail and protest to the civilized world, and let Jacob raise his hand to fight the good fight. The anti-Semite . . . understands but one language, and he must be dealt with on his own level. The Purim Jews stood up for their lives. American Jews, too. must come to grips with our contemporary anti-Semites. We must fill our jails with anti-Semitic gangsters. We must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic lunatics. We must combat every alien. Jew-hater. We must Harass and prosecute our Jew-baiters to the extreme limits of the laws. We must humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none will wish or dare to become (their) 'fellow-travelers'.

This is what Trotsky, a Jew, was preparing for the Russians for the implementation of Communism, which Marx based on the Babylonian Talmud for Gentiles:

"We should turn Her (Russia) into a desert populated with white Niggers. We will impose upon them such a tyranny that was never dreamt by the most hideous despots of the East. The peculiar trait of that tyranny is that it will be enacted from the left rather than the right and it will be red rather than white in color.

Its color will be red literally because we would spill such torrents of blood that they will pale all human losses of the capitalist wars and make the survivors shudder.

By way of terror and blood baths we will bring the Russian intelligentsia into a state of total stupor, to idiocy, to the animal state of being.

One of the finest things ever done by the mob was the Crucifixion of Christ. Intellectually it was a splendid gesture. But trust the mob to bungle the job.

We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it.

Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property (that’s you and your children) in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.

Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels (property) and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificate) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges.

They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability.

After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call “Social Insurance.”

Without realizing it, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office (presidency) of our dummy corporation (USA) to foment this plot against America.” ~ American traitor, the Jew Edward Mandell House giving a very detailed outline of the New World Order plans that were to be implemented gradually over time to enslave the American people ...

"Sorry that doesn't sound hippie. Sorry that doesn't sound like communal jubilant fun. Sorry I'm not a Pepper. Sorry I didn't pop out of a soda-pop ad, and life is just one big fucking cabaret, because a lot of what propelled Van Halen, what compels me and propels me is precisely this element. It's fury. If you approach me with anti-Semetic preconceptions, I'm not here to re-educate. I come from a whole different school of thought. If you don't get it on the first try, fuck you.

"I once heard somebody say to the Van Halens, "You guys play the music; the Jew sells it." Well, you're fucking right. And now that I'm gone, Van Halen stinks. Okay?

"Want to know why some of my contributions to Van Halen sound like they do? Didn't come from a smiling place in my soul. Not at all.

"Nobody ever said to Mick Jagger, "So, Mick, you're Episcopalian, aren't you?" Nobody ever took Jimi Hendrix aside and said, "So, Jimi, you're a Baptist, aren't you?" Much less start off the interview that way.

"Every step I took on that stage was smashing some Jew-hating, lousy punk ever deeper into the deck. Every step. I jumped higher 'cause I knew there was going to be more impact when I hit those boards. And if you were even vaguely anti-Semetic, you were under my wheels, motherfucker. That's where the lyrics came from, that's where the body language came from, that's where the humor came from, and where the fuck you came from. All equally as important. You want to know the ingredients? Don't ask if you don't want to know.

"What you get from repression and what you get from hatred is fury, and fury was one of the main trigger points for the great Van Halen. What you see now is a bunch of buffoons waddling around at the family barbecue, and their wives admonishing the children saying, "Don't worry, Daddy's just had a few too many Coors Lights and he's imitating what he used to do for a living when he played music, honey."

"What's missing is the testosterone. What's missing is the fury. What's missing is the passionate convicted commitment. And I got a lot of mine from my religious background. So y'all best stop imagining the way Dr. Zorba looked, or some defenseless Hasidic Jew with a little yarmulke on his head, 'cause that ain't here for you." ~ David Lee Roth
