AG Garland invokes Holocaust to ‘defend his policies of persecuting, indicting and imprisoning his political opponents’
Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday invoked the Holocaust during testimony before Congress to defend his policies of prosecuting and persecuting his political opponents and argued his Jewish “family background” means he’s immune to wrongdoing.
After indicting the leading presidential candidate in America on bogus, manufactured, partisan charges Merrick Garland had the nerve on Wednesday to compare his ancestors fleeing Eastern Europe during the Holocaust to his lawless targeting, indicting and imprisoning of conservative Americans.
[…] On Tuesday Merrick Garland choked up while talking about his ancestors as he destroys American democracy.
Merrick Garland: All of us recognize that with this work comes public scrutiny, criticism, and legitimate oversight. These are appropriate and important given the matters and the gravity of the matters that are before the Department. But singling out individual career public servants who are just doing their jobs is dangerous, particularly at a time of increased threats to the safety of public servants and their families. We will not be intimidated.
We will do our jobs free from outside influence, and we will not back down from defending our democracy. Third, I want to explain why we approach our job in this way. The Justice Department was founded in the wake of the Civil War and in the midst of Reconstruction, with the first principal task of bringing to justice white supremacists and others who terrorize black Americans to prevent them from exercising their civil rights. The Justice Department’s job, then and now, is to fulfill the promise that it is at the foundation of our democracy that the law will treat each of us alike. That promise is also why I am here.
My family fled religious persecution in Eastern Europe at the start of the 20th century. My grandmother, who is one of five children born in what is now Belarus, made it to the United States, as did two of her siblings. The other two did not. Those two were killed in the Holocaust, and there is little doubt that. But for America, the same thing would have happened to my grandmother.
Garland also invoked the Holocaust to dodge a question from New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew on his FBI/DOJ targeting traditional Catholics as “violent extremists” and suggested his Jewish heritage means he’s incapable of wrongdoing.
“The idea that someone with my family background would discriminate against any religion is so outrageous — so absurd,” Garland scoffed.
“Mr. Attorney General, it was your FBI that did this,” Drew shot back. “It was your FBI that was sending — and we have the memos and we have the emails — that was sending undercover agents into Catholic Churches!”
Human Events, which Posobiec oversees as senior editor, confirmed the development in a Sept. 18 article. The website accused him of being an “anti-Ukrainian propagandist” and “provocateur.” Prior to Posobiec, several American journalists, including former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Intercept founder Glenn Greenwald were put on the list.
The Myrotvorets website, which is the Ukrainian word for “peacemaker,” calls for retribution against perceived enemies of Ukraine. SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk was included on the website for a short time before his profile was quietly removed.
Others listed on the site, such as Russian journalist Darya Dugina, weren’t so lucky. Dugina, who was assassinated in a car bombing in August 2022, has her Myrotvorets page marked as “liquidated.”
The threat did not faze the Human Events senior editor, who bravely responded: “After the collapse of his counteroffensive, [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky’s biggest threat isn’t me, it’s his own intelligence services.”
Aside from Posobiec, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger also landed on the list over his comments. Myrotvorets accused the longtime diplomat of spreading “Russian-fascist propaganda” and acting as an “accomplice to the crimes of Russian authorities against Ukraine and its citizens.”
Kissinger reportedly warned that the Western campaign to “inflict a crushing defeat” on Russia poses fatal risks to European and global stability. “Negotiations need to begin … before [the Russia-Ukraine war] creates upheavals and tensions that will not be easily overcome,” he said. “Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante.”
These remarks from Kissinger during the 2022 World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland apparently drew the ire of those behind the so-called “kill list.”
Not just Americans: Other international figures also included in Myrotvorets
Posobiec and Kissinger aren’t the only ones included in Myrotvorets, which the Security Service of Ukraine allegedly curates. Several others, including the leaders of two sovereign nations, are also marked for liquidation for their alleged “crimes” against Kyiv.
The site accused Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban of being an “accomplice of Russian war criminals” and an “anti-Ukrainian propagandist.” Specific “crimes” by Orban include his refusal to allow Ukraine-bound weapons to pass through Hungary; his refusal to reject Russian gas supplies; and his willingness to pay for the latter in rubles.
Croatian President Zoran Milanovic was accused of conducting “humanitarian aggression against Ukraine,” supporting and justifying “Russian aggression” and “spreading Kremlin propaganda.” The site referenced his February 2022 remarks stressing that Russia must be “a factor” in the “equation” of pan-European stability.
Roger Waters of the rock group Pink Floyd also found himself on the Myrotvorets website, with its backers charging him of committing “anti-Ukrainian” offenses. According to the site, Rogers allegedly spread “anti-Ukrainian propaganda,” collaborated in efforts to legalize Russia’s annexation of Crimea and challenged Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”
NBC News journalist Keir Simmons visited Crimea and interviewed residents in the region, who told the reporter that they were pro-Russian and would fight every last Ukrainian who tried to invade. Myrotvorets put him on the site for simply reporting this development, accusing him of “attacking Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Stop by and see for yourself! NYC Mayor Adams invites Biden to visit “migrant hotel” in Big Apple
New York City (NYC) Mayor Eric Adams has invited President Joe Biden to visit a hotel that has been turned into a migrant center so that he could see firsthand the consequences of an open-border policy.
Speaking to Spectrum News NY1, the mayor urged the chief executive to visit the Roosevelt Hotel. The hotel, which closed in 2020 because of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, reopened three years later as an intake center for illegals. Currently, it serves as a “welcome center” for thousands of illegal aliens arriving by bus weekly to the self-proclaimed “sanctuary city.”
“There’s still an opportunity for him to look at the Roosevelt Hotel, like the Hispanic congressional delegation did,” Adams said. He referenced a visit by several congressmen spearheaded by Democratic New York Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jerry Nadler and Adriano Espaillat. They were joined by other elected officials from Illinois, California, Texas and other states.
Protesters in front of the hotel did not take too kindly to the delegation, as they lobbied Biden to merely provide work permits to illegals released within the U.S. interior. In particular, the demonstrators drowned out Cortez’s speech by shouting “close the border.”
Adams later stressed that he was not the one avoiding a face-to-face discussion with the president. During a separate appearance on TV station PIX 11, he suggested that Biden’s reluctance to talk to him may have something to do with his “blunt rhetorical stylings.”
“I’m a New Yorker. We do not run away from things; we move toward them. You know my authentic style of communicating,” the mayor said. “I walk around with that New York communication style. You know, I don’t search through a thesaurus to find a politically correct way of saying, ‘You are hurting me. You are hurting my city.'”
Adams: Illegal immigration heavily impacting the Big Apple’s economy
The NYC mayor also stressed that Biden must understand the economic impact of illegal immigration on the Big Apple’s economy.
“I am hoping that he understands this beautiful city that’s the economic engine of this entire country is being saddled with $2 billion that we spent already, $5 billion we’re going to spend in this fiscal crisis [and] $12 billion in the next two budgetary cycles,” Adams said. “[NYC] doesn’t deserve this.”
His latest remarks followed an earlier warning he issued to New Yorkers that the influx of illegal immigrants will “destroy NYC.” Following that prediction, he announced that city services would be cut across the board. Adams directed every city agency to cut their budgets by five percent, so the Big Apple can afford the $12 billion needed to address the influx of illegals.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration has turned a deaf ear to Adams’ complaints – and has even pointed its finger at the mayor. Two staffers from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aired their concerns to NBC News over NYC’s handling of the illegal immigrant crisis.
One senior DHS official pointed out that the city has “no exit strategy” for the illegals that get bused from Texas. This strategy, they added, helps migrants find their way out of the city’s shelter system. “It’s not an operationally sound effort,” the official said.
A second federal official also shared their thoughts on the matter. They remarked that concerns regarding the migrant issue in NYC could overshadow accomplishments made by the Biden administration on immigration and other issues.

The office will coordinate anti-gun efforts across different federal agencies and will offer help and guidance to states struggling with increasing levels of gun violence. Furthermore, the office will also reportedly take the lead on implementing bipartisan gun legislation signed into law last year.
Harris added in her statement that, in her role as head of this office, she and her staff will be “engaging and encouraging Congressional leaders, state and local leaders and advocates to come together to build upon the meaningful progress that we have made to save lives.”
“This epidemic of gun violence requires urgent leadership to end the fear and trauma that Americans experience every day,” added Harris. “Our promise to the American people is this: We will not stop working to end the epidemic of gun violence in every community, because we do not have a moment, nor a life to spare.”
Biden claims gun control measures necessary to curb gun-related violence
The establishment of the office is an effort by the White House to keep the issue of gun violence front and center as his administration continues to push back against gun owners by demanding a ban on so-called assault weapons.
“I’ll continue to urge Congress to take common-sense actions that the majority of Americans support, like enacting universal background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” said Biden in a statement released by the White House. Biden has also consistently been calling for federal requirements for safe storage of guns and an end to the immunity from liability of gun manufacturers.
“But in the absence of that sorely-needed action, the Office of Gun Violence Prevention, along with the rest of my Administration, will continue to do everything it can to combat the epidemic of gun violence that is tearing our families, our communities and our country apart,” he added.
The anti-firearm lobby has been extremely supportive of Biden, and his reelection campaign has already received early endorsements from different major gun violence prevention organizations. His creation of this office is seen as a result of extensive lobbying efforts by these groups.
One of Biden’s earliest actions supposedly to prevent gun violence was getting bipartisan support from Republicans to pass a package of modest gun safety measures last year, known as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.
The White House is expected to keep pushing its limits in terms of using its executive powers against guns and gun owners. Biden’s Department of Justice is expected to follow up the creation of this office by introducing new rules to expand background checks for new gun purchases.

Before his death in 1999, an OSS special agent openly talked about his role in incapacitating Gen. George S. Patton (1885-1945) via a staged automobile fender bender on Dec. 9, 1945. Using the pandemonium of the traffic collision as a distraction, agent Douglas DeWitt Bazata sniped Patton in the neck with a specially made gun firing a non-piercing bolt. Patton survived the incident with a dislocation of a vertebrae and never knew what hit him.
The government assassin first publicly confessed his guilt in the plot decades ago in front of a journalist at an OSS reunion dinner in D.C. Later, Bazata also confessed his role to author Robert K. Wilcox, who wrote the book “Target Patton.” Wilcox’s cousin and researcher Tim Wilcox discusses the circumstances in the video below. Bazata was an active special agent and assassin during and after WWII.
The assassin recounted that OSS Chief William Donovan had personally ordered the killing on the grounds that Patton had “gone crazy” and was becoming a major threat to American national interests.
A newspaper that also carried an interview claimed that it had “a professional analyst subject Bazata’s interview to the rigors of a content analysis using a Psychological Stress Evaluator (P.S.E.) His report: Bazata gives no evidence of lying.”
NOTE: The following video will play even though it looks like it has been removed.
On Dec. 9, 1945, a truck swerved in front of Patton’s limo. It was driven by a corporal who then disappeared. Patton survived with a dislocation of vertebrae from Bazata’s weapon and was taken to a hospital in more distant Heidelberg rather than in nearby Mannheim. He was at first fitted with a neck brace that did more harm than good.
As Patton was recovering, he held a press conference and declared he was going home. Then, he was injected or poisoned in the hospital and died suddenly on Dec. 21, 1945. There is a backstory that NKVD agents got to him, but that wouldn’t have been necessary.
Bazata claimed that he knows who killed him, and that Patton was killed by a dose of cyanide in the hospital. No autopsy was done, which is highly suspicious. Bazata went on to say that he met an unidentified man whom he knew only as a “Pole” (Polish extraction), who was also ordered to kill Patton.
Several official reports were produced regarding the exact circumstances of the very strange traffic accident said to be responsible for his death, but all of these reports have completely disappeared from U.S. government files. The medical reports disappeared, and archival records are strangely scrubbed.
Weak link in story? Patton stopped en route at a Roman ruin located on a hill along the roadside. Bazata put a jam into the window of Patton’s auto that would leave a four inch gap for a shot to the target. There are very few images of the limo online and now no accident reports either. However this one is of interest. It shows a white colored object sticking out of the window, door area where Patton was seated. The window itself is blurry, but you can see some interior detail. Was this window indeed partially open- thus confirming Bazata’s claim?
Plenty of Motive for Assassination: Gen. Patton’s Interpretive Framework
Patton had planned to write his memoirs, illustrating that eastern Europe was tossed to the Soviet Union. The reason for the hit on Patton were his views put forth on Oct. 22, 1945, in a long letter to Maj. Gen. James G. Harbord. Once the powers that be realized Patton would retire and be outspoken, the plan was put into place. This “car accident” took place shortly before his scheduled departure home, and he had narrowly escaped death twice before under very strange circumstances.
In a letter, Patton had bitterly condemned the Morgenthau policy; Eisenhower’s pusillanimous behavior in the face of Jewish demands; the strong pro-Soviet bias in the press; and the politicization, corruption, degradation and the demoralization of the U.S. Army, from this bad policy. He saw this as a deliberate goal of America’s enemies.
I have been just as furious as you at the compilation of lies which the communist and Semitic elements of our government have leveled against me and practically every other commander. In my opinion it is a deliberate attempt to alienate the soldier vote from the commanders, because the communists know that soldiers are not communistic, and they fear what eleven million votes (of veterans) would do.
In his letter to Harbord, Patton also revealed his own plans to fight an “all-out offensive” against those who were destroying the morale and integrity of the Army and endangering America’s future by not opposing the growing Soviet might.
It is my present thought … that when I finish this job, which will be around the first of the year, I shall resign, not retire, because if I retire I will still have a gag in my mouth … I should not start a limited counterattack, which would be contrary to my military theories, but should wait until I can start an all-out offensive …
Several months before the end of the war, Patton recognized the fearful danger to the West posed by the Soviet Union, and he had disagreed bitterly with the orders given to him in April and May, 1945 to hold back his army and wait for the Red Army to occupy vast stretches of German, Czech, Rumanian, Hungarian and Yugoslav territory, which the Americans could have easily taken instead.
The most notorious incident allegedly happened toward the end of May, when an English-speaking Russian brigadier general arrived at Patton’s headquarters to demand that some river boats on the Danube that had contained Germans who had surrendered to the Third Army be returned to the Russians. Patton opened a drawer, pulled out a pistol, slammed it down on his desk and raged, “Goddamnit! Get this son-of-a-bitch out of here! Who in hell let him in? Don’t let any more Russian bastards into this headquarters.”
On July 21, he wrote to Beatrice:
We have destroyed what could have been a good race and we [are] about to replace them with Mongolian savages. Now the horrors of peace, pacifism and unions will have unlimited sway. I wish I were young enough to fight in the next one [war]. It would be real fun killing Mongols …. It is hell to be old and passé and know it.
Then, he was highly critical of the post-war occupation policy in Germany.
The noise against me is only the means by which the Jews and Communists are attempting and with good success to implement a further dismemberment of Germany. I think that if I resigned as I threatened to do yesterday, it would simply discredit me to no purpose.
We promised the Europeans freedom. It would be worse than dishonorable not to see that they have it. This might mean war with the Russians, but what of it? They have no air force, and their gasoline and ammunition supplies are low. I’ve seen their miserable supply trains; mostly wagons drawn by beaten up old horses or oxen. I’ll say this; the Third Army alone and with damned few casualties, could lick what is left of the Russians in six weeks. You mark my words. Don’t ever forget them. Someday we will have to fight them and it will take six years and cost us six million lives. [As quoted in the book “The Unknown Patton” (1983) by Charles M. Province, p. 100]
Other notable quotes illustrate his frame of mind.
No one gives a damn how well Bavaria is run. All they are interested in now is how well it is ruined. [Letter to Beatrice (29 September 1945), published in “The Patton Papers” (1996), edited by Martin Blumenson]

Evidently the virus started by Morgenthau and Baruch of a Semitic revenge against all Germans is still working. Harrison (a U.S. State Department official) and his associates indicate that they feel German civilians should be removed from houses for the purpose of housing Displaced Persons. There are two errors in this assumption. First, when we remove an individual German we punish an individual German, while the punishment is — not intended for the individual but for the race. Furthermore, it is against my Anglo-Saxon conscience to remove a person from a house, which is a punishment, without due process of law.
There were also running conflicts about the treatment of Axis POWs. Patton was countering abuses. Additionally, he was furious that Americans from POW facilities in Soviet hands had not been immediately returned per agreement.
With great reluctance and only after repeated prompts from Eisenhower, he had thrown German families out of their homes to make room for more than a million DPs, but he balked when ordered to begin blowing up German factories in accord with the infamous Morgenthau Plan to destroy Germany’s economic base forever.
In his diary he wrote:
I doubted the expediency of blowing up factories, because the ends for which the factories are being blown up — that is, preventing Germany from preparing for war — can be equally well attained through the destruction of their machinery, while the buildings can be used to house thousands of homeless persons.
In a letter to his wife of Sept. 14, 1945, he wrote:
I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW’s to work as slaves in foreign lands [i.e. the Soviet Union’s Gulags], where many will be starved to death.
I have been at Frankfurt for a civil government conference. If what we are doing (to the Germans) is ‘Liberty, then give me death.’ I can’t see how Americans can sink so low. It is Semitic, and I am sure of it.
On July 21, 1945:
“Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Soviets) had I been allowed.
On Aug. 31, he wrote:
The stuff in the papers about fraternization is all wet … All that sort of writing is done by Jews to get revenge. Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. It’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.
And on Sept. 2:
What we are doing is to destroy the only semi-modern state in Europe, so that Russia can swallow the whole.
Morgenthauists and media monopolists decided that Patton was incorrigible and must be discredited. So they began non-stop hounding of him in the press, accusing him of being “soft on Nazis.” Patton’s response:
There is a very apparent Semitic influence in the press. They are trying to do two things: first, implement communism, and second, see that all businessmen of German ancestry and non-Jewish antecedents are thrown out of their jobs.
