“The ‘Maurice Pinay’ blogspot … is operated by heretical Catholics who don’t accept the Magisterium’s teaching on Judaism.” (David P. Goldman, First Things, June 21st, 2009)

“The differences between accepted Church teaching and this group of Latin-speaking extremists are not subject to reconciliation.” (Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, Wiesenthal Center press release, January 23, 2009)

These Pharisees should know that I never was and never will be subject to the magisterium of the ‘Noahide’ church of homo bishops and mentally retarded hicks that they exercise authority over. I’m a subject of the 2000 year-old unchanging teachings of the Catholic Church–true Israel; of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which these Pharisees are absolutely alien to.

Such imposture!

David P. Goldman’s Noahide Dream

April 17, 2009

… that “Globalism” might reach its objective; that all non-Judaic nations, cultures and religions may die and be absorbed into counterfeit Israel. Those who don’t go along with this Judeomaniacal fantasy are “‘Jew’-haters”–a fine ideology for an associate editor of an ostensibly Catholic journal to have. David P. Goldman can barely conceal his hatred for Christians as he cajoles them into being canon fodder for “eternal Israel.”

And Spengler is …

David P. Goldman – Asia Times

Apr 18, 2009

… The old and angry cultures of the world, fighting for room to breath against the onset of globalization, would not go quietly into the homogenizer. Many of them would fight to survive, but fight in vain, for the tide of modernity could not be rolled back.

As in the great extinction of the tribes in late antiquity, individuals might save themselves from the incurable necrosis of their own ethnicity through adoption into the eternal people, that is, Israel. The great German-Jewish theologian and student of the existential angst of dying nations, Franz Rosenzweig, had commanded undivided attention during the 1990s, and I had a pair of essays about him for the Jewish-Christian Relations website. Rosenzweig’s theology, it occurred to me, had broader applications.

The end of the old ethnicities, I believed, would dominate the cultural and strategic agenda of the next several decades. Great countries were failing of their will to live, and it was easy to imagine a world in which Japanese, German, Italian and Russian would turn into dying languages only a century hence. Modernity taxed the Muslim world even more severely, although the results sometimes were less obvious.

The 300 or so essays that I have published in this space since 1999 all proceeded from the theme formulated by Rosenzweig: the mortality of nations and its causes, Western secularism, Asian anomie, and unadaptable Islam.

Why raise these issues under a pseudonym? There is a simple answer, and a less simple one. To inform a culture that it is going to die does not necessarily win friends, and what I needed to say would be hurtful to many readers …

In this world of accelerated mortality, in which the prospect of national extinction hung visibly over most of the peoples of the world, Jew-hatred was stripped of its mask, and revealed as the jealousy of the merely undead toward living Israel. And it was not hard to show that the remnants of the tribal world lurking under the cover of Islam [MP: and not Judaism? Zionism? This maniac is hoping his will be the only tribe left] were not living, but only undead, incapable of withstanding the onslaught of modernity, throwing a tantrum against their inevitable end …

My commitment to Judaism came relatively late in life, in my mid-thirties, but was all the more passionate for its tardiness …

… one of the last truly universal European minds belongs to the octogenarian Pope Benedict XVI. In 1996, the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had said in an interview published as Die Salz der Erde, “Perhaps we have to abandon the idea of the popular Church. Possibly, we stand before a new epoch of Church history with quite different conditions, in which Christianity will stand under the sign of the mustard seed, in small and apparently insignificant groups, which nonetheless oppose evil intensively and bring the Good into the world.” The best mind in the Catholic Church squarely considered the possibility that Christianity itself might shrink into seeming insignificance …

Painfully and slowly, I began to learn the classic Jewish sources. My guide back to Judaism was the great German-Jewish theologian Franz Rosenzweig, and my first essay on these subjects was published by the Jewish-Christian Relations website in 1999 under the title, “Has Franz Rosenzweig’s Time Come?” …

As a returning religious Jew, I had less and less to discuss with the secular Zionists who shared my passion and partisanship for Israel, but could not see a divine dimension in Jewish nationhood. So-called cultural Judaism repelled me …

Both as classical musician and as a Germanist, I had better insight than most Jews into the lofty character of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, now Benedict XVI … Ratzinger was kind enough to review and comment on the draft of one of my articles on music theory in the 1980s. There is a connection between Ratzinger’s insider’s grasp of music and his Fingerspitzengefuhl for Jewish theology – something I tried to express in an essay entitled “The Pope, the Musicians and the Jews” …

The editors of First Things asked me for an essay on Franz Rosenzweig and Islam, which I published in 2007, and later a piece entitled “Zionism for Christians”, which appeared in 2008 under the pseudonym “David Shushon”. That was a milestone for me … I came to know the magazine’s editor Joseph Bottum, as well as such regular contributors as George Weigel, Russell Hittinger and R R Reno.

On January 8, 2009, the magazine’s founder Richard John Neuhaus died. A few weeks later Jody Bottum asked me to join the staff of First Things as an editor and writer … “Spengler” is channeled by David P Goldman, associate editor of First Things (www.firstthings.com). (“And Spengler is …,” David P. Goldman, Asia Times, Apr 18, 2009)

David P Goldman was head of debt research at Bank of America’s securities branch 2002-2005 and a member of its fixed income executive committee, and representative of the Asteri Capital hedge fund of Marc Rich’s Glencore Commodities trading firm.

In Phillip Weiss’ essay on First Things contributor, “David Shushon” in which he makes the case for “Shushon” being a pseudonym of David P. Goldman, he mentions that Goldman works for a firm, Asteri Capital Partners.

For what it’s worth, Lyndon LaRouche wrote about his old associate, David P. Goldman and explained why he gave him the boot in an essay which mentions a Goldman crony, Laurent Murawiec.

It seems that Laurent Murawiec, like Goldman is a player in The Great Game. He was invited by Richard Perle to brief the Pentagon Defense Policy Board in 2002 and is said to have explained to them that the U.S. must invade Saudi Arabia, confiscate their financial assets and take possession of their oil fields:

First Things Speaks to the Kashrut-Katholic Golem

June 5, 2008

Wolf in priest’s clothing, Richard John Neuhaus is founder of the Kosher-Katholic rag, First Things whose stated purpose is “to advance a religiously informed public philosophy for the ordering of society.” While Neuhaus’ mission statement doesn’t say which religion the philosophy he is attempting to reorder society around derives from, it is not difficult to ascertain–it’s rabbinic Judaism. We know this because Neuhaus has peddled hair-splitting pilpul intended to confuse rabbinic “premptive” destruction halacha with Catholic just war doctrine. “Preemptive” destruction is perfectly Catholic as long as you call it “defense” rather than “preemptive war” according to John Neuhaus. I am reminded of how the rabbis called the indiscriminate destruction of the defenseless nation of Lebanon by the Israeli military an act of “defense” and how this applies to the Palestinian territories on a day to day basis.

Thanks to Richard John Neuhaus we now live in a United States that has been reordered around rabbinic “preemptive” destruction ideology among many other rabbinic absurdities in absolute opposition to Christian principles. Neuhaus did not bring about this transformation alone, of course. Podhorwitz, Krystol, Krauthammer and others played key roles, but what makes Neuhaus, his pal Skull and Bones Bill Buckley and Michael Novak so pernicious is that they neutralized what should have been the major opposition group to the rabbinic “preemptive war” zeitgeist–Catholics–and they accomplished this even while the Judaized Vatican mouthed opposition to a war on Iraq. But far beyond simply neutralizing Catholics during the run up to the destruction of Iraq, Neuhaus and friends seem to have transformed Catholics into a golem which does the will of the rabbis in nearly all matters without even being payed for it like Neuhaus is.

This is a remarkable feat of human alchemy. Neuhaus must have been a sorcerer’s apprentice under his old friend, Vatican II change-agent Rabbi Abraham Heschel, a Kabbalist who was invited to participate in the writing of the Vatican II document Nostra Aetate who at that very time confided to his fellow “Jews” regarding Christians, “I want to attack their souls.”

Zionism for Christians

by David Shushon

Copyright (c) 2008 First Things (June/July 2008).

Israel always matters. Biblical scholars have devoted endless pages to ancient Israel as a religious idea, and pundits have penned endless newspaper columns about modern Israel as a geopolitical entity. The deeper implications, however, have received less attention than they deserve in recent years, overshadowed by the exigencies of Middle Eastern politics. Indeed, real questions remain: What does the sheer ­existence of the modern state of Israel mean for theology—particularly for Christian theology? And what does that theology mean for the continuing existence of Israel?

“Hardly anybody will dispute that the foundation of this state had something to do with the biblical prophecy,” Christoph Cardinal Schönborn said in 1996, “even if that something is hard to define.” At ­present, the major Christian denominations are kindly disposed toward Judaism, and many Christians—­especially American evangelicals—strongly support the State of Israel …
