July 1, 2008

This is a follow up to the last blog posting. Thanks to a reader who sent in this and other leads.

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:

CORRECTION: The Asteri Capital Ltd. that David P. Goldman works for is a hedge fund backed by Marc Rich’s commodity trading firm, Glencore.

They’re Not Invincible

The battle is about much more than just holiday decorations. This and much greater can be accomplished when people take appropriate action.

Update: Jewish Federation rescinds request, apologizes
Hyde Park will leave Nativity scene

HYDE PARK – A manger scene will remain on the lawn of town hall.

A day after asking the town to remove the nativity scene, Bonnie Meadow, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County, has withdrawn her request.

The public outcry following her request was more than Meadow expected, she said in a letter today to Hyde Park Supervisor Pompey Delafield. She had asked the town to remove the manger scene, claiming it offended some non-Christians in Hyde Park and that it violated federal law.

“I never dreamt that my request to remove the nativity scene at the offices of the Town of Hyde Park would upset so many people so much,” Meadow said in the letter. “It was never my intent to hurt anyone or to spoil their holidays. In view of the public outcry, I hereby rescind my request to you.

“I apologize for whatever difficulty this may have caused and I wish you and your community a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays,” she said.
