Do We Owe Gratitude to American Veterans For Having Fought in Iraq?

Robert L. Johnson 2013-03-22 04:56
Column by Robert L. Johnson. Exclusive to STR U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. war against Iraq by saying, “Every one of the more than one million service members that deployed to Iraq, often for multiple tours of duty, deserves our highest praise and deepest debt of gratitude.” Is Hagel correct? Do the American people owe the veterans of...
Democrats Demonstrate Why Voting Is a Fraud

Robert L. Johnson 2012-09-10 23:00
Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR This past Wednesday, September 5, 2012, is a day that should live on as a day of true education. For on that day the Democratic Party let all the world see, and it was preserved on video for posterity to witness and learn from, what a truly senseless and foolish act voting is. Thank you, Dems!   The powerful and clear lesson came as Los Angeles...

Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR  We are all appalled and disgusted when we hear about Islamic courts sentencing people to be whipped or beheaded for blasphemy against Islam or Mohammed.   We wonder how injustices can be justified by their perpetrators when we see images of Muslims being forced from their homes by Israeli settlers or hear Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu...
FDR Turned a Blind Eye to the Holocaust

Robert L. Johnson 2010-11-19 03:00
Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR November 16, 2010 marked the 77th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the United States government turning a blind eye towards the Holocaust of the Ukrainian people. On November 16, 1933, the United States formally recognized the Soviet Union for the first time with an official pact.   The pact was brought about not by Roosevelt negotiating...
C.S. Lewis Called for a Christian Theocracy

By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   After reading articles by David J. Theroux of the C.S. Lewis Society which had links at www.strike-the-root.com and which paint the Christian apologist C.S. Lewis as a freedom loving libertarian, I had a hard time reconciling what little I do clearly know of Lewis with the claims made by Theroux. The only book I’ve read that Lewis wrote...
Voting: Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Robert L. Johnson 2010-07-21 02:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 51 percent of the voting cattle are upset with Obama and the Democrats. Their solution is to replace the Democrats with Republicans! This is similar to actual beef cattle preferring Burger King to McDonalds. Either way, the cattle lose.   The Republicans, who the voting cattle are taking a...
The Biblical Roots of the “Lunatic State of Israel”

Robert L. Johnson 2010-06-14 02:00
Exclusive to STR     The courageous Jew Norm Finkelstein recently described the Jewish state of Israel as a “lunatic state.” He made this statement during an interview regarding the slaughter of nine volunteers who were murdered by the Israeli Occupation Forces while trying to break Israel’s illegal and anti-human blockade of Gaza. The nine people murdered in the...
Obama Takes a Double Bitch Slap from Israel

Robert L. Johnson 2010-05-10 02:00
Exclusive to STR   Bitch slap number one: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Israel trying to restart the Palestinian/Israeli peace talks. While in Israel the Israeli government announces its plan to build 1,600 apartments for Jews in Palestinian East Jerusalem. This allegedly outrages Biden and the Obama administration. How can they appear to be working for peace in the Middle East when...

Why 'The Greatest Generation'?
9
Robert L. Johnson 2010-01-12 03:00
Exclusive to STR   Tom Brokaw coined the phrase “the Greatest Generation” for those Americans who lived through the Great Depression of the 1930s and who went on to fight, kill and die in World War II. You have to ask yourself why a key spokesman for the established government-friendly (to say the least) mainstream media would hold these Americans in such high regard.  ...
Religious Political Creep
0
Robert L. Johnson 2009-10-26 16:00
Exclusive to STR The great George Carlin once said, 'I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.' I couldn't agree more! When these two groups of proponents of bad ideas get together for a common goal, the end result is the Dark Ages. When American revolutionaries...
Osama bin Laden Knows More About American Government Than Americans Do
0
Robert L. Johnson 2009-09-20 15:00
Exclusive to STR In Osama bin Laden's most recent message to the American people, he clearly demonstrates that he knows much more about the real workings of American government and politics than the average voting American. Most people who waste their time voting sincerely believe that their vote matters and will make a difference. They don't realize that the politicians do not have to answer to...
Be Careful What You Call 'The Word of God'
0
Robert L. Johnson 2009-07-23 15:00
Exclusive to STR July 24, 2009 Recently, strike-the-root.com linked to an article by former President Jimmy Carter (a sincere, born-again Christian) called 'The Words of God Do Not Justify Cruelty to Women,' which deplores the abusive and unreasonable treatment of women by 'revealed' religions. The title of his article was the same as that of the link on STR . This title assumes too much.

Exclusive to STR May 5, 2009 God-given reason and the Bill of Rights have just taken a beating from a federal judge.

Robert L. Johnson 2007-06-21 15:00
Exclusive to STR June 22, 2007 Priorities are very important. In the history books we've seen that men like George Washington had priorities of leading a violent revolution against the government. This priority of Washington's took precedent over his own family, income and being. By today's standards, Washington was a nut case!

Exclusive to STR February 23, 2007 Israel and the US are conspiring to undercut the democratic will of the Palestinian people by forcing Hamas, the choice of the people, out of their legally elected position of political power. The US plutocrats spent $42,000,000 taxpayer dollars to support the opponents of Hamas! This is only one example of the US government doing Israel's anti-democratic...
Arkansas Legislature Snubs Thomas Paine
0
Robert L. Johnson 2007-02-20 16:00
Exclusive to STR February 21, 2007 Politicians enjoy misleading the sheeple by pretending they believe in freedom. The Arkansas legislature recently made it crystal clear that this is just a song and dance routine intended to be limited to only election and reelection speeches when they voted against honoring Thomas Paine by making January 29th Thomas Paine Day.

Was Leo Strauss an Idiot?
0
Robert L. Johnson 2006-12-04 16:00
Exclusive to STR December 5, 2006 Leo Strauss, the founding father of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament)-based neoconservative movement, is too often talked about and written about as being some sort of intelligent, profound philosopher and thinker. The reality of it is that Strauss was a man who actually took the myths and lies found in the Hebrew Bible as factual. Only a non-thinker could do...

Robert L. Johnson 2006-09-14 15:00
Exclusive to STR September 15, 2006 Governments are based on lies. They need liars to fill the offices of their various branches of government in order to promote the government lies. To add yet another tragically comic layer of lies to government, these government liars are called 'public servants'! One great example of a government liar is US President George W. Bush.

Pat Robertson and the Biblical Mind
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-08-25 15:00
The televangelist Marion 'Pat' Robertson's statement that the US government should assassinate the President of Venezuela (Hugo Chavez) is receiving a lot of media coverage. Comedians feel it is a real godsend. But his statement is very revealing of his mindset and his priorities. It also seems to have Biblical roots, although it does not call for the rampant and wholesale violence and brutality...

Robert L. Johnson 2005-08-23 15:00
Listening to Bush supporters who have come out to oppose Camp Casey and its creator, Cindy Sheehan, it becomes painfully obvious how well a big lie really works on the minds of millions. Some of them have lost family members in the unnecessary war in Iraq that the neocons and Bush started. They can't bring themselves to see reality--that their loved ones did not die for American freedom but were...

The government is a collection composed almost exclusively of self-serving political careerists and bureaucratic careerists.

One way to learn who those powers are is to see who the politicians are most concerned with pleasing...
A Memorial Day Gift of Reality

Watching the news yesterday and hearing from the politicians, veterans, and the person on the street that Memorial Day is to show thanks to all the US service men and women who gave their lives so we can be free, I wondered how they can actually believe that. And I wonder how many of the fallen believed they were fighting so Americans can be free.

Robert L. Johnson 2005-04-05 15:00
What if the governments and religions of the word were held accountable for what their officials say and claim? There's no telling where it would lead. Perhaps it would lead to less government and more progress, and less fear and superstition and more God-given reason.
Wolfowitz and the World Bank
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-30 15:00
Paul Wolfowitz is a neoconservative. Neocons are centered and focused on achieving their plan. Their plan consists of shaping a new world order based on the Hebrew Bible. If you've read the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, you know it's based on promoting the Jews to the front of the line at the expense of the Gentiles/Goyim.
Schiavo Case Shows the Emptiness of Revealed Religion

Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-23 16:00

State and Religious Child Abuse

Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-15 16:00

The Evils of Democracy

Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-10 16:00
Recent events in Lebanon have shown the folly of democracy. When the anti-Syrian forces held huge street demonstrations against the pro-Syrian Lebanese government, the pro-Syrian Prime Minister resigned. When the pro-Syrian crowds demonstrating in the streets a week later were much larger than the anti-Syrian crowds, the Prime Minister was reappointed. There's no reason or logic to it, just...

George W. Bush and Treason
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-24 16:00
George W. Bush likes to surround himself with patriotic trappings. He's big on talking, to the best of his very limited ability, about God, country, and values. He enjoys playing dress-up as various icons of Americana, like a fighter pilot or a cowboy. But behind this empty facade of being an American patriot, I believe, is treason. Treason to America and her people.
The Fundamental Flaw of the Neocons

War is bad. Lots and lots of innocent and great people get horribly hurt and killed. The survivors are psychologically mutilated for the rest of their lives. These are probably some of the reasons George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the key neocons have successfully avoided being in one themselves. But what element is in the neoconservative worldview that makes them so cavalier and ready to...

The spoiled little rich kid, George W. Bush, took advantage of the US military when he started the war in Iraq.

Abusive governments, such as most of us suffer under, need to control their subjects.

Why Deism and Corrupt Government Don"t Mix

Robert L. Johnson 2004-12-16 16:00
It's been my experience when talking to people about religion, that the overwhelming majority of them have never heard of Deism. Hopefully, with the recent conversion of world-famous philosopher and atheist, Antony Flew, to Deism, this will begin to change. The lack of knowledge of Deism is highly unusual given the strong role Deism has played in the history of Europe and America. But, as FDR is...
The Cat Is Out of the Bag!

Robert L. Johnson 2004-12-14 16:00
As Bush and the neocons were arranging the unnecessary war in Iraq, many people said the major reason for the war was to secure Israel as the dominant power in the Middle East. Collateral benefits were boosts in political careers for the political prostitutes in Washington. People who voiced these ideas were ignored or called anti-Semitic. Those of us who recognize the 'why' of the war...
U.S. Government Turns Its Back on Democracy

Robert L. Johnson 2004-11-08 16:00
The tiny little democracy in the Middle East is surrounded by a deadly, vicious enemy. It needs help to sink the roots of democracy deep in its troubled soil so democracy can eventually spread throughout the region. But the US government, who says its goal in the Middle East is to see to it that democracy does indeed spread in that area of the world, is refusing to help the neophyte democracy of...

The US government is evil. It's publicity arm, the media, is just as bad.

Church and State

Robert L. Johnson 2004-10-24 15:00
There are many strong parallels between religion and government. Both require unquestioning obedience in order to avoid severe punishment. Both make absurd claims that go against all reason and reality. Both claim to be doing good while they're doing bad. And the cornerstone to both is hypocrisy. Because America is by far a country dominated religiously by Christianity, I will be dealing with...

The First Amendment to the US Constitution states, in part, 'Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press . . .' If Congress didn't do it, who did? Someone must have made a law that is 'abridging the freedom of the press,' otherwise, surely, there would be open debate in the US media regarding the 'special' relationship between the best Congress money can buy...
Anti-Semitism?

Robert L. Johnson 2004-10-04 15:00
The US Congress just passed a bill, and George W. Bush quickly signed it into law, that creates a special office within the US State Department to monitor anti-Semitism around the globe. This is another attempt by the career politicians to win Jewish favor in an election year. In fact, promoting Jewish interests around the world is one of the very few issues that finds almost complete bipartisan...
What Is George Reading?

Oops -- I Started a War!

Robert L. Johnson 2004-07-18 15:00
The two recently released reports on 'intelligence' put out by the US and British governments show what total disdain the government and its politicians have for the common person.

Americans are not the only ones suffering under the delusion that we live in a free country and can control our own national destiny. It appears that Osama bin Laden suffers from the same delusion, according to his own words. In his Letter to America (which appears to be greatly suppressed by the US media/government, probably because it lists the reasons we're being attacked, not the lies the...
Politicians--Are They Prostitutes or Pimps?
0
Robert L. Johnson 2004-06-21 15:00
With few exceptions, if any, the government representatives known as politicians, have their political careers for selfish reasons. That's why they use the term 'public service' so frequently. It masks the reality of their greed, deceit, and self-serving actions. The way they operate makes them anything but 'public servants.' To my eye, they appear to be either political prostitutes or political...
The Democratic Crusade

Robert L. Johnson 2004-06-15 15:00
We must make the world safe for democracy. After all, we know what is best for, not only ourselves, but what is best for the rest of the world, too. And in this age of Islamic terrorism, we must install democracy firmly in the countries of the Muslim Middle East. We must conquer Iraq, Syria, and Iran for our holy cause of democracy! This is similar to the thought process that brought about the...
Is the 9/11 Commission Doing the Right Thing?

Robert L. Johnson 2004-05-23 15:00
The 9/11 Commission is trying to study the deadly attacks of September 11, 2001 so we can learn what to do to save more lives when we are attacked again. What they should be doing is trying to learn what caused the Islamic terrorists to attack us in the first place, so we can, if possible, remove the reason and prevent further attacks. I think I found that answer while watching CNN. While an...
War: Who"s to Blame?

Robert L. Johnson 2004-05-05 15:00
On the surface, war appears to be caused by evil tyrants who want to "take over the world." Adolf Hitler was placed in this category. Then we had the Red threat, which was credited with wanting to turn the world into a Communist gulag. Now, we're told, the reason for the current war in Iraq is to defeat the "terrorists" who hate us because they're jealous of our jeans, our wealth, and our "...
Christians Owe the Jews a Double Debt

Much is being said about the long held ideas brought to the surface by Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ. The popular movie has broken box office records for the first two weekends of its release, and again on Easter weekend it retook the number one spot. The key controversy of the film is centered on charges by a large segment of the Jewish community that it is anti-Semitic because...
The Neocons Are Biblically Grounded

Robert L. Johnson 2004-03-31 15:00
The new conservatives, or neocons, are a powerful group in Washington , DC . They are credited in Time [1] as being the driving force, through neocon and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, to suggest to George W. Bush that the US needed to start a war in Iraq . After thousands of dead and horribly wounded Iraqis, 600 dead and well over 2,000 mutilated and wounded Americans, the American...
Why Deism and Corrupt Government Don"t Mix

Robert L. Johnson 2004-12-16 16:00
It's been my experience when talking to people about religion, that the overwhelming majority of them have never heard of Deism. Hopefully, with the recent conversion of world-famous philosopher and atheist, Antony Flew, to Deism, this will begin to change. The lack of knowledge of Deism is highly unusual given the strong role Deism has played in the history of Europe and America. But, as FDR is...

Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR November 16, 2010 marked the 77th anniversary of Franklin D.

Democrats Demonstrate Why Voting Is a Fraud

Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR This past Wednesday, September 5, 2012, is a day that should live on as a day of true education. For on that day the Democratic Party let all the world see, and it was preserved on video for posterity to witness and learn from, what a truly senseless and foolish act voting is. Thank you, Dems!   The powerful and clear lesson came as Los Angeles...
C.S. Lewis Called for a Christian Theocracy

By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   After reading articles by David J. Theroux of the C.S. Lewis Society which had links at www.strike-the-root.com and which paint the Christian apologist C.S. Lewis as a freedom loving libertarian, I had a hard time reconciling what little I do clearly know of Lewis with the claims made by Theroux. The only book I’ve read that Lewis wrote...
Why 'The Greatest Generation'?
9
Robert L. Johnson 2010-01-12 03:00
Exclusive to STR   Tom Brokaw coined the phrase “the Greatest Generation” for those Americans who lived through the Great Depression of the 1930s and who went on to fight, kill and die in World War II. You have to ask yourself why a key spokesman for the established government-friendly (to say the least) mainstream media would hold these Americans in such high regard.  ...

Exclusive to STR     The courageous Jew Norm Finkelstein recently described the Jewish state of Israel as a “lunatic state.” He made this statement during an interview regarding the slaughter of nine volunteers who were murdered by the Israeli Occupation Forces while trying to break Israel’s illegal and anti-human blockade of Gaza.

Do We Owe Gratitude to American Veterans For Having Fought in Iraq?

Robert L. Johnson 2013-03-22 04:56
Column by Robert L. Johnson. Exclusive to STR U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. war against Iraq by saying, “Every one of the more than one million service members that deployed to Iraq, often for multiple tours of duty, deserves our highest praise and deepest debt of gratitude.” Is Hagel correct? Do the American people owe the veterans of...
Obama Takes a Double Bitch Slap from Israel

Robert L. Johnson 2010-05-10 02:00
Exclusive to STR   Bitch slap number one: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Israel trying to restart the Palestinian/Israeli peace talks. While in Israel the Israeli government announces its plan to build 1,600 apartments for Jews in Palestinian East Jerusalem. This allegedly outrages Biden and the Obama administration. How can they appear to be working for peace in the Middle East when...
Voting: Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Robert L. Johnson 2010-07-21 02:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 51 percent of the voting cattle are upset with Obama and the Democrats. Their solution is to replace the Democrats with Republicans! This is similar to actual beef cattle preferring Burger King to McDonalds. Either way, the cattle lose.   The Republicans, who the voting cattle are taking a...
