America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

9/11 and the Israeli Government

For all the remembering of 9/11, you'd think there would be more demands for the full story. If you want a dramatic demonstration of what the U.S. government thinks of "its" people, follow these links about the activities of Israeli agents in the United States before and after the September 11 attacks. There is hard evidence that Israelis tracked the 9/11 hijackers' activities in the United States -- but apparently did not tell the FBI what was going on. Some even watched the Twin Towers being hit, and danced a celebratory dance when it happened. This is not fringe conspiracy stuff. It is hard news reported by ABC, Fox, The Forward (a major Jewish paper in the United States), and Israeli newspapers.

The American people have a right to know, but of course the government has locked up the information and pressured news agencies to keep it under wraps. This is intolerable.

Read and get mad:

What Did the Israelis Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks?
Israel Is Spying on and on the U.S.? (Carl Cameron, Fox News) Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
The Israeli "Art Student" Mystery
US Arrests 200 Young Israelis in Spying Operation
Next Door to Mohammad Atta

The Israeli government and the Americans who are complicit in its U.S. espionage are playing with fire -- and jeopardizing many innocent people in the process. The U.S. government should open up the records (fat chance) so the American people have finally have the truth. If there was no spying -- if there was no foreknowledge of the 9/11 events -- what is to fear from coming clean?

Unsubscribed. Enjoy your anti-semitic conspiracy theories.

Sheldon Richman said...

That's one way to avoid the matter. Head-in-the-sand can be very effective. I guess the anti-Semites at The Forward, Ha'aretz, and other Israeli papers have been exposed.

Sheldon Richman said...

By the way, the sleazy nature of that change-the-subject "response" won't be lost on fair-minded observers. Quite the contrary: it will give credence to what I have said. That ploy works no longer, Dave.

Justin should've included his own links: ISRAEL AND 9/11: Feds holding 60 Israelis in connection with 9/11 – Why? and 9/11: WHAT DID ISRAEL KNOW? – and when did they tell us? (and note those were written nearly nine and eight years ago, respectively).

Yes, Sheldon Richman the "anti-Semite" Semite. Really, now.

Sheldon Richman said...

Well, actually, he didn't accuse me of being anti-Semitic. He only said the conspiracy theory was anti-Semitic.

Is this a conspiracy theory? No one says the art students were involved in the 9/11 plot -- just that they were watching the plotters on behalf of their government and neglected to tell American officials.

Considering that Sheldon is of Jewish heritage, I'd hardly call him an "anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist." After all, the word "Semite" applies to Arabs, not the Jewish populace or even the Israeli people for that matter.

And, given the links that Sheldon provided, he's hardly a "conspiracy theorist." I am hardly one myself, but it's almost impossible to deny that 9/11 Truthers have posited salient questions and points regarding the 9/11 attacks (even if they're in the wrong on many things and off the mark on others). Still, regardless of what one feels about "conspiracy theories," the fact is that the official account established by the U.S. federal government is tainted with so much sophism that one would be a fool to entirely embrace it.

Heed Sheldon's wisdom on this, folks. He knows what he's talking about. Dave, on the other hand, is a different story altogether.

MarkZ said...

So...um...you can't be anti-semitic if you're jewish? That's awfully close to a "some of my best friends are black" argument.

Anyway, I don't see how what he wrote is anti-semitic anyway. He criticized an operative of the israeli government. Quick! I'll give a dollar to the first person who can tell me which government on this planet that Sheldon *would* approve of.

For sure, anyone who doesn't know by now that the US Gov't was involved or at least knew of 9/11 in advance is corking their ears. however, the september 11th terrorist attacks were plotted, payed for and perpetrated by muslim arab men. They went on planes and flew them into buildings, with exception of the flight that went down in Pennsylvania. That night we saw real true images of Gazans dancing in joy! All this stuff about the Israelis and 9/11 is misinformation for people who don't know history. Lets not let free associtiation turn truth on its head.
