Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

The Star Beats All...



Hitler's mistake was refusing to borrow any more paper from them... He simply printed his own.

Once free from the crippling usury of the privately owned banks - instantly Germany went from having the worst economy in Europe to being the most prosperous, technologically advanced nation in the world (again), with virtually zero unemployment.

If only our own governments had the courage to do the same.

Too much trunk weight in Egyptian standards of transportation...in some areas  ;D

An "Only in Egypt" series of pictures and videos circulate online on the dumbest things Egyptians go through.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

The £20 note made my day. I always thought "Fidei Defensor" refered to the CofE, not Judaism. Do the Windsors do a Seder at Buck-house? "Why is this knight different from every other knight?"

Yes, of course - that those six-pointed stars are on those usurious bills of fiat money (hidden prominently in plain sight) is just a coincidence...

Of course, of course...

And it's also just a coincidence that they own the banks which lend those GOVERNMENTS their money too, right?

Of course!



As for the star (perfectly centered; perfectly placed in the upright orientation {as they all are}) represented as a snowflake... well they had to hide it (prominently in plain sight) somewhere!

As for the snowflakes themselves being six-pointed... Satan is also known as "the prince of the power of the air" isn't he?
