All of these horrendous pieces of legislation have been passed since 9-11, which leads us to the question of who pulled off the most amazingly well orchestrated attack on any nation in the history of the world. The fact is that nobody can know the true details of who was involved in light of 9-11 Commission members stating that much of the evidence they requested was withheld from them. One thing is for sure, the evidence most certainly does not point to Iraq.
Was Israel involved? It’s not beyond the scope of reasonable doubt. We will forego any independent research and focus on mainstream news reports to belay any charges of rabid conspiratorial nonsense. A 4 part Fox News story on an Israeli spy ring looked into this very subject in November of 2001. It should be noted that the report never aired. However, all 4 parts are available for viewing on Youtube.
Here’s some highlights:
“Since September 11 over 60 Israelis have been either arrested or detained”
“A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained”
“Some of the detainees also failed polygraph”
“…prior to September 11 over 140 other Israelis had been detained or arrested”
“…they may have gathered information about the attacks and not shared it”
“Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I can not tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It is classified information”
“…an Israeli based private communications company for whom a half dozen of those 60
detained suspects worked….”
“information from this firm may have fallen in the wrong hands and had the affect of impeding the September 11th terror inquiries.”
“…some American terrorism investigators fear certain suspects in the September 11 attacks may have managed to stay ahead of them by knowing who and when investigators were calling on the telephone”
Until a fully independent and comprehensive study can be done, all possibilities must be considered. Israel is not immune from scrutiny any more or any less than any other country.
Now, with all of this said, let us briefly address the ADL’s 3rd accusation that Poker Face is anti-government. This is blatantly false. We could not be any clearer on our stance that we support a strict adherence to Constitutional government. If we were so anti-government, why has the band performed in support of nearly every major political party as well as some rather obscure ones to boot? Why have members of the band taken part in forming a local chapter of the Libertarian Party? Why have members actively sought to be a part of the electoral process by attempting ballot access as a delegate?
These are the not the actions of an anti-government group of anarchists. But, then again, the ADL is not known for basing their opinions on fact.
So, we can determine that Poker Face is not anti-immigration, but against ILLEGAL immigration.
The band is not anti-government, but, we will speak out against corruption within government.
We are not anti-Semitic, but, we will shine the spotlight on those of Jewish faith who use their heritage to escape criticism, especially when it comes to crimes against this country, but also against their own people.
The First Amendment grants everyone the right to free speech, unencumbered by Federal law. However, what the ADL is doing, not just to Poker Face, but, to many others as well, is a clear case of slander and libel. Through their efforts, they influence others to take part in what they claim to rail against, defamation. They do have every right to talk about us. But, they do not have the right to make false accusations or interfere with our livelihood by preventing us from performing.
Inevitably, this will only strengthen our fan base. Every time one of these hit pieces comes out, our popularity grows. We have been called the thinking man’s band by people who have a way of seeing through the smear campaign. Unfortunately, this popularity is a double edged sword as we have already had shows cancelled due to the negative PR campaigns.
Take note that the same cast of corrupt characters will always focus on one topic. This topic is never discussed in our songs. It is not displayed in our artwork. It amounts to roughly 3% of the content on our forum board. Yet, they will use this as their rally cry in order to dismiss the important issues that face our country.
The Federal Reserve and monetary policy, military acts of aggression and suppression of Constitutional rights, sovereign independence and unemployment; these are the issues that are of great importance to America. When you consider the implications of ignoring these, the pettiness of name calling should be crystal clear.
