U.S. Politics Descends to New Depths of ‘Noahide’ Fanaticism

June 26, 2011

Skull and Bones Bill Buckley’s process of “draining the fever swamps” and making conservatism “respectable” has reached its final destination in complete, slavish depravity.

And by the way, Michele Bachmann is the representative for Minnesota’s 6th congressional district which happens to be the home of ‘traditional Catholic’ journal The Remnant which we last heard from when its editor Michael Matt was making himself utterly irrelevant, wailing of an imminent Sharia law takeover of the U.S.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller and the Fatality of the American ‘Right’

November 19, 2010

Hasidim take great pride in the ability to trick and cajole “the goyim.” However, I suspect that some of the names listed below are somewhat aware of this fact and go along with the charade anyway bargaining that rabbinic association might afford them cover from the “anti-semite” bludgeon. Whatever little benefit they may receive is far outweighed by the confusion and misdirection suffered by their followers and undeserved prestige accrued to Talmud, Kabbalah and Khazar “Jews” among people who should know better.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller belongs to the Skver Hasidic sect in Rockland County, NY which was convicted in 1999 of defrauding federal government programs out of $30 million dollars that were then used to run Skver institutions. The Hasidic community of Rockland County, NY is legendary for fraud and sex abuse. Rabbi Schiller teaches advanced Talmud studies at Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy at Yeshiva University.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller On The Future Of The American Right

By Eugene Girin – November 18, 2010

On Columbus Day (not yet totally banned by the Thought Police as “oppressive” and “Eurocentric”) I had the privilege of attending a talk by my friend and mentor Rabbi Mayer Schiller. The Rabbi is one of the leading Jewish racial realists and a leading traditionalist luminary—especially striking given that his formal secular education ended after eighth grade He spoke to a small conservative group in Manhattan about his intellectual journey through the post-war American Right. (Interested readers are welcome to email me for more detailed information about this group).

Rabbi Schiller grew up in a Brooklyn-Queens liberal Jewish family. He remembered attending international soccer games with his grandfather who refused to stand for the anthems of Franco’s Spain and Salazar’s Portugal, but sang along to “The Internationale”—the communist hymn that was then Yugoslavia’s anthem. Like many other American Jews at that time, the Rabbi’s grandfather did not see a contradiction between his pro-communist views and the fact that he was a successful businessman who would be either imprisoned or executed under the Reds.

Rabbi Schiller says he became a conservative at the age of ten after watching a documentary about Sen. Robert Taft. His views were further developed by Goldwater’s The Conscience of a Conservative); (Rabbi Schiller later wrote The (Guilty) Conscience of a Conservative) National Review (which at that time was race-realist and opposed integration); and the John Birch Society’s American Opinion. The young Craig Schiller, as the Rabbi was known during his secular days, greeted Goldwater’s 1964 campaign with jubilant euphoria.

He was crushed when Goldwater lost—and later when, as he puts it, William F. Buckley “decided to sell out and dropped all his principles”.

At this time, Rabbi Schiller became a part of the Skver Hassidic movement in Rockland County, after he and his middle school classmates had decided to try living as observant Jews for a month.

Another major transformation occurred in the Rabbi’s life at around the same time: he discovered L. Brent Bozell Jr.’s traditionalist Catholic magazine Triumph, which featured authors like Thomas Molnar and Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn. He realized that traditional religious beliefs are an integral part of real conservatism. The Rabbi was so taken by Bozell and Triumph that he approached Patricia Buckley Bozell and offered to write a biography of her late husband.

Triumph writer Thomas Molnar (who passed away this July), a prolific author and a professor at Brooklyn College, Yale, and University of Budapest, was both a friend and a mentor (“a rebbe”) to Rabbi Schiller. The Rabbi was a young rabbinical student when he read Molnar’s seminal The Counter-Revolution and came down to Manhattan to meet him. When the Rabbi started talking about the Constitution, Molnar cut him off with the first of many witty remarks in his charming Hungarian accent: “The Constitution? Look around you, what do these Puerto Ricans care about the Constitution?”

The Rabbi remembers Molnar as a brilliant, yet realistic Catholic reactionary who considered the words “democracy” and “capitalism” to be obscenities and ridiculed Pope John Paul II for sounding like “a southern California health store owner: it’s all about love and peace! What about Heaven and Hell?”

Molnar derided The National Review as an “empty, soulless, and faceless publication” and had no respect for the neocons.

Like other traditionalist thinkers, Molnar did not have much hope for the West. To Molnar, non-Western mass immigration was a symptom, not a cause of the West’s decline. The real problem was that the West lost its will to live. When Rabbi Schiller visited South Africa in the last months of white rule to encourage Afrikaner nationalists and demonstrate his support for them, Molnar replied: “You must encourage them to do only one thing—run away!”

Interestingly, the neocons and the ADL/$PLC thought police never bothered Molnar. Rabbi Schiller says he was too far above their level of discussion—chickens do not fly high enough to attack an eagle.

Rabbi Schiller’s affinity for traditionalist Catholicism led him to establish a warm relationship with the anti-Vatican II Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). The SSPX seminary in Ridgefield, CT invited Rabbi Schiller to speak to their seminarians on numerous occasions. And every time, the Rabbi reports, he was received with the utmost courtesy and respect. Once, a seminarian even addressed Rabbi Schiller as “Father”. The seminarians held the Rabbi in such high regard that, before Archbishop Lefebvre was to consecrate several SSPX priests as bishops in defiance of Rome, they sought out the Rabbi to ask his opinion on the matter.

The late Joe Sobran was another pious Catholic friend of Rabbi Schiller. The Rabbi remembers Joe as a kind, sweet, and humble man who was a brilliant analyst yet managed to be very funny in his prose. Unlike Molnar and Rabbi Schiller, Sobran still believed in political activism. But Rabbi Schiller recognized, like others, that Joe Sobran’s heart and mind were engaged by questions of immigration and race.

With regards to Sobran’s views on the Jews and Israel, the Rabbi believes that Sobran’s criticism of the former only arose as a result of Buckley’s and the neocons’ hysterical reaction to his criticism of the latter. Sobran was shocked and hurt by the neocons’ attack on him when he dared to question the special relationship between America and Israel. This attack led to his progressively more outspoken criticism of Israel and the Jewish role in America.

In contrast to more critical obituaries, Rabbi Schiller says he will always remember his recently departed friend as a “disheveled intellectual who had a heart overflowing with love.” Rabbi Schiller’s glowing endorsement is displayed prominently on Sobran’s publisher’s website.

Jean Raspail’s novel The Camp of the Saints was another major influence on Rabbi Schiller. At the Manhattan meeting, the Rabbi talked about how Raspail’s book underlined the fact that we have a common European identity, which includes such things as “the sense of critical thought, romance, heroism, individual integrity, and the spirituality of life”. All of these were shaped by Greece, Rome, Judaism, Christianity, and the Norse lands.

Nowadays, the Rabbi commented, any sort of defense or even “public concern with the fate of European civilization is open to attacks from the thought police”.

Like Thomas Molnar, Rabbi Mayer Schiller believes that there is no hope for Western man because he “had his soul torn out” and “internalized the terror” to such a degree that he is not only afraid to speak in defense of his civilization, but is even afraid to think pro-Western, politically incorrect thoughts.

As for the nationalist parties in Europe, the Rabbi does not have much hope for two reasons.

* First, as soon as a nationalist party will get above 10-15 % of the vote, the repressive apparatus of the EU will kick in and shut it down. (Indeed, this has already happened with Belgium’s Vlaams Blok and appears about to happen to the British National Party).
* Second, nationalist movements are very susceptible to fragmentation and internal squabbles. This tragic fragmentation is due to the fact that “movements that are out of power and have little hope of achieving it are forever substituting internal feuds for the reality of real power”.

The Rabbi says witnessed this firsthand during the split of the National Front in Britain in the 1980s. He is still friends with former National Front leaders Patrick Harrington and David Kerr, whom he says have demonstrated a sense of sympathy towards the Jewish people.

On several occasions, the Rabbi visited Ulster where he attended the Twelfth Of July Unionist parade (“the last legitimate folk festival in the West and the only one without corporate sponsorship”) and met with Reverend Ian Paisley. The Rabbi jokes that his affinity for both traditionalist Catholicism and Ulster unionism presents a big dilemma during Celtic-Rangers soccer games.

But all is not lost for the West. The Rabbi said that “the doctrine of multiculturalism and political correctness is so insane and against reality that it has to be enforced by terror”. Therefore, the Rabbi asserted that, even when Western societies collapse after a long period of cultural and economic decline, there will still be remnants of religious Jews and Christians, as well as social traditionalists who will preserve Western civilization and values.

Rabbi Schiller urged the meeting to create “islands of sanity” similar to those envisioned by the French New Right, an important on influence on Rabbi Schiller’s thought, and carry the Western realm forth in our communities, homes, and hearts.

The last part of Rabbi Schiller’s speech dealt with the Jews and their relationship with the West. The Rabbi blames large-scale secular Jewish participation in the Left on the fact that when European Jews entered political life in the late 1800s, it was the Left that argued for emancipation. Therefore, secular Jews were trained for over a hundred years, to view those who had an “organic understanding and attachment to the Western realm” as a threat.

On the other hand, Orthodox Jews largely abide by a tribal morality. For most modern Orthodox Jews, this means that “it is all about Israel and support for Israel” and for most traditional Orthodox Jews, engagement with the outside world is only done to obtain benefits (government and otherwise) for their communities.

The Remnant’s Conspicuous Blind Spot

November 17, 2010

“Sharia law is coming … the Crescent is rising,” says The Remnant’s Michael J. Matt. And how does he know this? Because in Minnesota, “Somali employees began refusing service to Minnesotans attempting to purchase bacon from the frozen food departments of local Target stores” and “[i]n addition, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on more than 5000 cases of Somali cab drivers refusing to pick up fares that failed various Sharia litmus tests.”

Whatever threat these minimum wage-earning Muslim immigrants may constitute I think it safe to call it negligible in comparison to a threat that Mr. Matt and his Remnant Resistance is conspicuously mute on: the coming of the ‘Noahide’ Laws and the rise of the Hexagram.

The Chief Rabbinate of the Israeli state which was able to force the Pope to alter the traditional Catholic liturgy HERE and to recognize Judaism’s oppressive legal system, the so-called ‘Noahide’ Laws HERE, has what one might call real power.

While it might seem like a threat to Michael Matt if a poor immigrant won’t serve him bacon or allow his dog into a taxi, an element that has the power to get the Pope to hack and slash traditional Catholic teaching is the greater threat to Catholics by a cosmic margin. How has Michael Matt and The Remnant Resistance missed this?

Is the Crescent rising? Perhaps it’s rising in a Minnesota Mosque attended by the Target store workers and taxi drivers that Mr. Matt fears, but the Crescent hasn’t risen nearly as high as the Hexagram on the Pope’s mitre.


Muslims haven’t pressured the Church to rewrite its liturgy and teaching materials, to apologize for its past and abandon many of its Saints and their teaching.

Muslims aren’t saturating our airwaves with attacks on our religion, morality, governing principles and culture.

There is no Muslim equivalent to Thomas Friedman selling the ‘Noahide’ Laws in the pages of the New York Times.

There is no Muslim equivalent to AIPAC, WJC, AJC, ADL, JPPPI, UJA, and the hundreds of other such Judaic power organizations and the pressure they bear on world governments, religious institutions, media and academia.

There is no Muslim equivalent to Chabad Lubavitch or Agudath Israel and the power they wield.

There is no Muslim equivalent to the 30′ tall Menorah that appears on the White House lawn each Hanukkah.

There is no Muslim equivalent to Benjamin Netanyahu pulling the strings of our president.

There are no equivalent Muslim subversives to Gregory Baum pushing Christians to scrap the Gospel of our religion and replace it with a crude counterfeit.

Muslims don’t force Western governments to imprison their citizens for doubting atrocities committed against them, much less overblown exaggerations.

Islam doesn’t sanction predatory, usurious financial chicanery.

It’s not Muslims who loosen immigration policy in Western nations while championing ‘Jewish’ state ethnic purity.

I prefer Jesus’ teaching to Michael Matt’s dishonest attempt at profundity:

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men.

Indeed, the salt has lost its savour; the earth is no longer salted. We’re being trodden upon by men but it’s not minimum wage-earning Muslims.

It’s never too late to turn back. If we’ve forgotten what it means to stand for beliefs and principles then perhaps we might benefit from the example of these poor immigrants that Michael Matt so fears.

September 27, 2008

A reader has written the following comment on the last blog posting regarding Rabbi Shear-Yashuv “Cohen,” who was invited by Benedict XVI to lead a one-day discussion on the rabbinic interpretation of biblical scripture at the upcoming bishops synod:

Hi Maurice,

Rabbi Cohen might keep going to teach noachism to the bishops as he did already:

Papal Commission Promotes Noahide Laws

This is a critical point which I failed to make. Rabbi Shear-Yashuv “Cohen,” in addition to being a Chief Rabbi of counterfeit Israel, is also a co-chairman of the Israeli-Vatican dialogue commission alongside Cardinal Jorge Mejía. At the last (seventh) meeting of this rabbi-Vatican commission in March 2007 the true purpose of the commission was revealed: the introduction of the non-biblical, rabbi-concocted “Noahide laws” into the dialogue. Incredibly, the bishops of the commission acknowledged the “Noahide laws” and signed a document to this effect which included a sentence which implies that the New Testament book of the Acts of the Apostles includes these “Noahide Laws.” Rabbi Shear-Yashuv “Cohen,” the man who Benedict XVI has invited to teach the bishops how to interpret scripture at the upcoming synod, was a co-signer of this document. Read it at the Vatican’s website at the following link.

http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/chrstuni/relations-jews-docs/rc_pc_chrstuni_doc_20070313_commissione-bilaterale_en.html

I have been attempting to draw attention to this document from the time it was first signed in March 2007 HERE and have had little success in doing so. It seems that there are more important things on Catholics’ minds, papal vestments and the like, than bishops and rabbis together promoting the diabolical lie that the Talmudic “Noahide laws” were taught by the Apostles to Gentile converts in the Book of Acts. The document linked to above is proof that Rabbi Shear-Yashuv “Cohen” interprets scripture in this way, along with bishops who signed the document. Now, Benedict XVI has invited this “Noahide law” peddling rabbi to speak further on his interpretation of scripture at a synod of over 200 bishops.

Putting the sarcasm of the last posting aside, it is not the duty of any Orthodox rabbi to teach real Orthodox Judaism to non-Judaic people. His responsibility to Orthodox Judaism is to teach “Gentiles” the “Noahide laws.” Orthodox Judaism is only for “Jews.” This is the true essence of “dual-covenant” theology, it’s a system of double-standards–Judaism for “Jews,” “Noahide laws” for everyone else.

Will this continue to be ignored or suppressed by every Catholic pundit? Is silence the proper response to such unspeakable Vatican treachery? What good are conservative vestments and rubrics if the people wearing those vestments sell us out to a “dual-covenant” “Noahide” tyranny?

Walter Kasper Clarifies Intention of Benedict’s Latin Prayer for the Jews to Chief Pharisee David Rosen

February 17, 2008

Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, has written a letter clarifying the intention of the new Good Friday prayer for the Jews at the request of the Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” and papal knight, David Rosen of which I present some excerpts. First, we see it implied by a top Vatican prelate that the Scripture-based traditional Latin Good Friday prayer for the Jews was “language of contempt” while it is stated that the new prayer expresses an intention of “mutual respect in respective otherness”:

“To give witness of our Christian faith, as is expressed in the reformulated prayer, is therefore in no way a return to the language of contempt but an expression of mutual respect in our respective otherness.”

What is the intention of the reformulated prayer?

The reformulated text no longer speaks about the conversion of the Jews, as some Jewish critics wrongly affirm. The text is a prayer inspired by St. Paul’s letter to the Romans, chapter 11, which is the very text which speaks of the unbroken covenant. It takes up Paul’s eschatological hope that at the end of times all Israel will be saved. As a prayer the text lays all in the hands of God and not in ours. It says nothing about the how and when. Therefore there is nothing about missionary activities, by which we may take Israel’s salvation in our own hands. We leave all in the hands of the one who is the only master and Lord of history.

Does this prayer constitute any change in the Vatican’s policy towards the elder brothers?

It is absolutely not the intention of anyone in the Roman Curia to step back and interrupt our fruitful dialogue, which for us is irreversible …(Letter from Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, to Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” David Rosen)

A photocopy of the letter can be read at the following link:

http://www.sidic.org/doc/DOC00353_Doc00558.pdf

There you have it, not from some hack lay theologian, but from one of the highest ranking Vatican prelates, expert in Benedict’s theology of the “elder brothers” and Benedict’s liaison to the Pharisees. If this anti-Gospel intention resonates with you, then sign up here to defend it:

Defend the Dogma, Defend the Holy Father!

And it’s worth noting that one of Benedict’s first actions as Pope was to make the self-described proud Pharisee, Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” David Rosen, whom this letter is addressed to, a papal knight.

The Blindness of "The Remnant" and Friends

February 13, 2008

The Remnant and friends have issued an “International Declaration in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI” which expresses grave concern that:

(www.RemnantNewspaper.com) Today, February 12, 2008, the international Rabbinical Assembly, representing some 1,600 conservative rabbis worldwide, issued a “resolution” declaring that it is “dismayed and deeply disturbed” over Pope Benedict’s reiteration of Catholic doctrine on salvation in the recently revised Good Friday Prayer. This same Assembly voted to formally pressure the Vatican to “clarify the text’s meaning.” However, the text is perfectly clear, and the Pope is not obliged to alter or “clarify” Church teaching in response to “resolutions” adopted by non-Catholic organizations. Besides, the Pope’s magnanimous decision to revise the Prayer in the first place has already addressed any possible concerns the Rabbinical Assembly might profess to have. We are deeply concerned that such public relations tactics could become a precedent for interference in the affairs of the Church by pressure groups that do not share her beliefs.

“The Remnant” and friends express grave concern that a resolution issued by a rabbinic counsel after Benedict rewrote an ancient Catholic liturgical prayer due to pressure from the rabbis and other Judaic pressure groups could create a precedent for interference in the affairs of the Church by outside pressure groups? And this, after “The Remnant” declared the rewriting of the prayer due to pressure from rabbis and Judaic groups a “papal masterstroke”?

It seems to me that these “traditionalists” prefer the new prayer. They’re certainly willing to fight for it, while they quite obviously did not fight for the traditional prayer.

It seems to me that these “traditionalists” prefer the new prayer. They’re certainly willing to fight for it, while they quite obviously did not fight for the traditional prayer.

What hope is there for people with such treacherous and/or foolish spokesmen?
