Biblical Law and America’s Rotten Criminal Justice System

Biblical Law, which is neither Right wing nor Left wing, is the Answer to the Injustice of Americas Rotten Criminal Justice System

By Michael Hoffman

The Bible has been falsified by Marxists and liberal Democrats on the one hand, and on the other by the type of Churchianity that operates in the misnamed “buckle of the Bible belt” of rural America. The fact is, Scripture is neither Right wing nor Left-wing.

Here in Idaho, a predominately “Christian conservative” state where Mr. Trump will be re-elected—probably by a landslide— the legal rate of interest on a loan is more than 500%. Carlo Gambino would have been green with envy.

Alabama, another overwhelmingly Right-wing Christian redoubt, has for decades operated one of the most disgraceful and criminal prison systems in the country, where inmates convicted of crimes such as check-cashing fraud and car theft are routinely malnourished, sodomized, beaten and killed.

The blabbermouths of “Conservative Christendom” who rail against abortion and homosexuality rarely, if ever, consistently utter prophetic admonishment of the government-approved loansharks and their usurious oppression of the poor, or of shameful prisons that have no place in Biblical law.

The churches are emptying in the West not mainly due to atheists, but to the horrible example given by those who call themselves Protestant or Catholic representatives of Jesus Christ. People see their corruption and hypocrisy and figure, “If that’s of Christ I want none of it.” Young people’s antennae are particularly sensitive when it comes to detecting corrupt double standards.

Too often we read about an innocent person convicted, and either executed, or spending decades of his or her God-given precious life unjustly locked away.

Most of the churches of Christendom don’t teach the Biblical law on prisons, or financial sins like renting money. Neither do they teach the Bible’s solution to perjury. 

The Biblical penalty for perjury consists in the perjurer receiving the sentence that would have been imposed on the innocent person he or she falsely accused

“If a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing,  then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the Lord, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days.  The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely,  then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.” [Deuteronomy 19:16-19]

When God's Law is enforced there will be far fewer innocent people executed or imprisoned, and at least “some of the evil in our midst” will be purged. Respect for the law will increase.

The “jailhouse informant” who sent Mr. Duboise to prison for 37 years, along with the Florida District Attorney who enabled this travesty of justice, should both be made to serve 37 years of incarceration. If this were to occur whenever false witness led to punishment of the innocent, these miscarriages of justice would be drastically reduced.

The Darkness tells us that the God of Old Testament Israel is a deity of harsh justice, but His is a better law by far than what the rotten “criminal justice” system of these United States imposes too often on the poor and marginalized of our nation.

Our Ruination: Internet Fever Swamp and its Antidote

Our Ruination 
The Internet Conspiracy Fever Swamp 
— and its Antidote

After announcing the publication of our Revisionist History® newsletter for September (issue no. 110), we received the following e-mail from a correspondent:

On Aug 17, 2020, at 9:51, Joe xxxxx <xxxx@gmail.com> wrote:

I wonder if your main essay in Revisionist History #110 touches upon Black Lives Matter and its involvement in satanism as it is still practiced in parts of West Africa. I only recently came upon this information:


To which we protested in reply:

Dear Joe:

This video is evidence? History? On the contrary, this is our ruination —  the Internet fever swamp —  a substitute for deep study, reading and research.

Michael Hoffman

We left the gentleman dangling at that juncture, and then thought better of it, following up the next day, with this addendum:

Dear Joe

I feel we left you without recourse in our last e-mail and wish to redress that omission, if you are willing.

If you haven’t yet returned to the realm of deep reading, I am hoping you will at least begin to encounter it in terms of the spoken word, as part of what Herman Melville termed "thought-diving," by studying from beginning to end, “Fiction and the Age of Lies,” a video of Colin Burrow’s lecture on the history — from antiquity onward — of truth and fiction

Keep your finger ready to hit the pause button on your remote control; have a notebook at hand so you can jot down and commit to memory the more pithy of his citations and insights. I found myself doing so, for example when Burrows quotes Cicero at 10 minutes 46 seconds into his talk:

“That thing is plausible (probabile) which generally happens, or which is a matter of general belief…whether it is true or untrue.” (De Inventione, I.29.46)

I wish I could induce a million Americans to undertake the study of Burrow's lecture so we might begin to return, first to an appreciation of what learning actually constitutes, in comparison with the anecdotal conspiracy effluvia online on the various video showcases, and second, that we ourselves might begin the lifelong task and duty of cultivating critical and profound investigative thought, so that we might not be gulled, as we are currently, by the dissolute and puerile fare too often masquerading as “Must See Blockbuster Revelation!!!!” of this or that eschatological oracle, or accusation of crime and coverup, much of which is only rendered credible predicated on what psychologists term, “confirmation bias,” the enemy of authentic history and journalism. 

However, we have taken notice of late of an ever-expanding, deceptive spirit on the Internet, seeded by the Cryptocracy itself, which uses useful idiots in the online anti-Establishment community as mouthpieces, to disseminate lies and half truths of various hues, so as to mislead, misdirect, and in the confusion, generate demoralization and burnout among those earnestly seeking alternative information and the restoration of our republic. 

At present (August 2020), one of these threadbare notions in circulation is the assertion that the devastating explosion at the port of Beirut was caused by a low-yield Israeli nuke

The credulous people who are inclined to hold this impression to be true on the thinnest of premises (viz. Cicero’s “matter of general belief"), believe it on the basis of their need to believe it. What could be more subversive of truth? How could anyone not in a cult, and who has been trained in critical thinking, accept such a poorly-sourced hypothesis as genuine? 

We suffer from miseducation, or perhaps one might say no education whatsoever in the higher levels of what Edgar A. Poe termed “ratiocination," perhaps because, like anything truly worth acquiring, training in deep thinking entails application and hard work, which too many are unwilling to invest. Hence, the surfeit online of lazy delusions and misdirection which seriously retard our lucidity and ability to act judiciously.

Serve your apprenticeship in the work of plumbing the origins of “Fiction and the Age of Lies”:

This writer does not endorse all of Colin Burrow’s remarks or conclusions, particularly when he draws contemporary analogies and in certain instances displays Leftist partisanship with regard to Brexit and the examples he proffers of news media bias (all on the Right). 

However, none of what he expounds with which we disagree or dissent, detracts in any significant way from his erudition and historical sleuthing as it pertains to the origins of these issues in the chronicle of western civilization. His talk is worthy of our attention all the way to the end (his answer to the final question posed [at 1:07.05], is perhaps his best).

The point of viewing his lecture is to compare Mr. Burrow's presentation of his arguments, and the documented sources he employs—with the fever swamp’s fantasy conspiracy talks and videos—which depend for their credibility almost entirely on confirmation bias and duplicitous and aggressive huckstering. We earnestly wish more Americans would learn to discern the difference. It is a matter of some urgency.

My Testimony Concerning WWII Japanese Surrender Offer

My Testimony Concerning the World War II Japanese Surrender Offer

By Michael Hoffman
Former reporter, New York bureau of the Associated Press

During the observation of the 75th anniversary of the atomic incineration holocaust of Hiroshima, the corporate media have been circulating various allegations that the Japanese had not attempted to surrender prior to the bombing.

 One of these disgraceful justifications for the American government’s Machiavellian extermination of Japanese civilians is titled, "Back to Hiroshima: Why Dropping the Bomb Saved Ten Million Lives."

The following is my testimony.

The problem with the claims that the Japanese were not going to surrender is that they contradict first person testimony.

Walter Trohan, White House correspondent and Washington D.C. Bureau Chief for the Chicago Tribune

In the course of my career in journalism I was privileged to come to know Walter Trohan, a star reporter for the Colonel R.R. McCormack newspaper, the Chicago Tribune. He was its Washington bureau chief. Mr. Trohan covered the White House and had known and interviewed every president from FDR to Nixon.

In a conversation with Walter Trohan, he told me about information disclosed to him by FDR’s Chief of Staff, Admiral William Leahy, who served in the same position under President Truman. 

As early as 1943 Leahy informed Trohan that the White House was receiving peace feelers from the Japanese and a surrender offer, predicated on the exemption of the Emperor from any punishment or incarceration. 

Leahy also told Walter that if he printed those facts before the war ended he would be imprisoned. 

One week after the Japanese surrendered, the account of Japan’s surrender offer was published on the front page of the Chicago Tribune.

In his memoirs, published in 1950, Admiral Leahy wrote that prior to the dropping of the atomic bombs: 

"The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender.” 

Few people were in a better position to know.

Attempting to justify the deliberate mass murder of men, women and children establishes one of the most frightening, depressing and barbaric precedents for future wars. What is more, the justification furnished — that Japan adamantly refused any surrender terms prior to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki holocausts — is a pathetic, flimsy lie.

HESS: Speaking of General MacArthur, what was your reaction to the firing, or to the dismissal of General MacArthur?
TROHAN: To tell you the truth, I was flabbergasted because I didn't think he (Truman) would do it. I didn't see how he could do it, because he had in the White House Admiral [William D.] Leahy, his aide and Mr. Roosevelt's top military
advisor, and Leahy was very high on MacArthur. He said MacArthur was our greatest general, not excepting Robert E. Lee. I didn't see how Truman could fire him. 
MacArthur was a hell of a guy, because he pulled that Inchon landing, you remember, and got back in behind the enemy and he was running here, there, and every place doing a terrific job. He was doing a great job in Japan and I just couldn't believe that Mr. Truman would fire him. However, Mr. Truman got the idea, rightly or wrongly, that MacArthur was considering himself bigger than he was and he had to remove him. He felt that he must do it. And I will say for him it took courage when he did it. I don't agree with it even to this day.
HESS: You think it was an error?
TROHAN: I think he -- see, I think -- unlike most of my colleagues who think that Mr. Truman's going down as the greatest President of this time -- I do not. And I'll tell you why I do not. One, is the firing of MacArthur which I think is going to be held to be a mistake, they should have left him in there and they should have let him win that one and we wouldn't have this one (the war) in Vietnam. Also the other
one (there's no malice on this on my part), he dropped that pineapple on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and we've got...
HESS: What's your opinion on that?
TROHAN: We've got ourselves a guilt complex about that and always will have and we will not make a great man out of Mr. Truman because of that. I don't think he should have dropped that bomb.

38th Anniversary of the Israeli Terror Bombing of Beirut Lebanon

38th Anniversary of the Israeli Terror Bombing of Beirut, Lebanon

Corporate Media Report Nothing About It

Aftermath of the Israeli bombing of Beirut, August, 1982

By Michael Hoffman • ©2020

As we mourn the destruction and loss of life that occurred in the mysterious explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on August 4, we recall that this month marks the 38th anniversary of the Israeli air force terror bombing of the city of Beirut in the summer of 1982, which reached a climax of genocidal fury in August of that year. The attacks were so horrific they were denounced by American Zionist Leon Wieseltier as “terror-bombing pure and simple.”

Another outspoken defender of the Lebanese people was the famed English children’s author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), who condemned the Israeli terror attacks as an utterly despicable war crime by a cowardly air force that was unopposed. Dahl had been an RAF fighter pilot during the Second World War, facing off against the formidable Luftwaffe, a battle considered Britain’s “finest hour.”
Buildings  in Beirut packed with civilians destroyed by Israeli bombs, August 1982

August 1982 witnessed one of Lebanon’s darkest hours. 38 years ago the city’s clearly marked hospitals, schools and apartment blocks were intentionally set aflame and flattened by Israeli bombs. Tens of thousands of Lebanese civilians were killed or wounded.

This Israeli war crime, ordered by Ariel Sharon, is forgotten by “our” media on the 38th anniversary of this mini-holocaust.

Tel Aviv displays flag of Lebanon in “solidarity" with Beirut

Instead, after the explosion this week in Beirut, the Israeli city of Tel Aviv displayed an image of the flag of Lebanon on a municipal building. This “kind-hearted gesture by the Israeli people” quickly became the iconic image of the news cycle, heavily publicized. The Israelis are praising themselves for their humanity in the midst of this media circus. But wouldn’t a true sense of humanity require reparations to be paid to Lebanon for the destruction and loss of life in 1982, and a museum built to study the Israeli atrocity, memorialize it and impart moral lessons so it will never happen again?

Ask almost any American about the dead and maimed victims of the Israeli Air Force holocaust in Beirut 38 years ago. The response you’ll receive will be, Never heard of it.

That’s how our reality is shaped to fit a propaganda narrative having no relation to history or truth. Those who are fed this falsification cannot make accurate judgments or decisions. Our entire worldview is blinded by suppression of the holocausts that have been deemed not fit to print, or broadcast. 

Democracy dies in darkness.
