The Holocaust as Trauma Brainwashing

September 25, 2018

36416022_303.jpgIn the 1960's the Jewish philosopher, Hannah Arendt, left, was slandered and ostracized when she concluded that "almost without exception" the Jewish leadership were Zionists who cooperated with the Nazis. The Zionist-Nazis collusion must be kept quiet in order to give Israel the moral license to conquer Palestine and the Middle East. 

"My flock has become a prey...because there was no shepherd, nor did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves..." Ezekiel 34:8

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Israel's most potent psychological weapon is the Holocaust. The Zionist battle cry is "Never again!"

In an article Monday, I suggested that the real motivation behind traumatic events like Hiroshima and Sept. 11 might be to impose a new mental paradigm upon humanity. Zionists and their globalist sponsors may have contributed to the severity of the holocaust for the same reason.

Because of the Holocaust, the world became convinced that Jews needed their own country. The Palestinians were identified (in many minds) with the Nazis, and the Israelis were given moral sanction to drive them from their homes and subjugate them. Criticism of Israel is often equated with Nazi anti-Semitism.

As a psychological weapon, the holocaust also serves an array of NWO causes.

The world is divided into heroic victims (Jews) and haters (Nazis). The "victims", who are funded by George Soros, include oppressed women, homosexuals, and the minority flavor-of-the-day. The "haters" are the intolerant people who defend the things the globalists want to destroy: nuclear family, religion, democracy, individualism, and nationhood. The haters are "right-wingers" for whom the tolerant liberals have "zero tolerance."

It is not my intention to mitigate Nazi responsibility for the Jewish holocaust but to scrutinize its use by Zionists and globalists as a psychological weapon. Before I continue, I had better declare myself.

I am a non-observant, non-self-hating Canadian Jew who believes in God and Christ's gospel of love. My grandparents all died in the holocaust; my parents narrowly survived by passing as non-Jews. I lived in Israel in 1972-3 but left because Israelis seemed as materialistic as Canadians. Israel also struck me as a country that devoured its own people.

Nevertheless, I remained a Zionist until 2002 when I discovered its hidden imperialist character. Still, I support Israel's existence within the 1967 boundaries, with restitution to the Palestinians. I believe most Israelis and Jews have been hoodwinked as I was.


The definitive history of the Holocaust is "The Destruction of the European Jews" by [now deceased] Raul Hilberg, a Jewish professor of Political Science at the University of Vermont. Hilberg's three-volume work is largely based on meticulous Nazis documentation.

Hilberg could barely get his book published because he documented the extent to which the Nazis depended on the Jewish Councils ("Judenrat") to administer the final solution and the lack of any real Jewish resistance. He estimated that fewer than 200 Nazis died due to Jewish resistance.

Why the negative reaction? Hilberg concluded that the mythology of the Holocaust requires that the victims appear to be heroic and to be engaged in a struggle, however unequal. In fact, the Jews went to their death like lambs to the slaughter. (Hilberg, The Politics of Memory p.135)

In the 1960's the Jewish philosopher, Hannah Arendt was slandered and ostracized when she concluded from Hilberg that "almost without exception" the Jewish leadership cooperated with the Nazis.


In her book, "Eichmann in Jerusalem" she wrote, "In Amsterdam as in Warsaw, in Berlin as in Budapest, Jewish officials could be trusted to compile the list of persons, and of their property, to secure money from the deportees to defray the expenses of their deportation and extermination, to keep track of vacated apartments, to supply police forces to help seize Jews and get them on trains, until, as a last gesture, they handed over the assets of the Jewish community in good order for final confiscation. They distributed the Yellow Star badges [and sometimes sold] cloth and fancy plastic armbands which were washable." (p.117)

Had the Jews been totally unorganized and leaderless, Arendt writes, there would have been chaos and misery aplenty but the total number of deaths would have been far less. (p.125)

The reason Jews went quietly is not a mystery. Jewish leadership betrayed them. Hilberg attributes it partly to an age-old Jewish habit of persevering in the face of overwhelming odds. But a more important factor is that both Jewish world leadership and the Judenrats were dominated by Zionists.

Zionists had a record of cooperation with the Nazis in the 1930's. They had a trading plan by which German Jews could redeem their property in Nazi goods exported to Palestine. 


Adolph Eichmann. left, helped them set up training camps in Europe and even visited Palestine as a Zionist guest.

Zionists did not believe in the Jewish diaspora and actively sabotaged rescue attempts. If Jews could escape to other countries, what would be the purpose of Israel? Thus the Zionist Rabbi of Sweden Dr. Ehrenpreis scuttled a Swedish attempt to rescue 10,000 Jews. Zionists torpedoed a similar move by the British parliament. They also rejected numerous legitimate ransom attempts and discouraged resistance.

Generally the Zionists served the globalist elite agenda, suppressed news of the holocaust and didn't agitate for special measures. The Allies bombed factories a few kilometers from Auschwitz but the crematoriums and railroad tracks were untouched. The Zionists believed that the greater the Jewish losses, the greater the world's moral obligation to them.


Young Jews like myself were told that Arab countries attacked peace-loving Israel after the 1948 U.N. Partition. They broadcast messages for the Palestinians to leave until the Jews were cleaned up.

In fact, Israel was given 57% of Palestine but immediately took more land and caused 700,000 Palestinians to flee in terror by slaughtering over 250 at Deir Yassin and another 250 at Lydda. The Arab radio broadcasts were a fable. Arab broadcasts encouraged the population to stay put. (Michael Prior, Zionism and the State of Israel: A Moral Inquiry, 1999, pp.16-29, 187-205)


David Ben Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, told TIME magazine (Aug. 16,1948) that he envisaged a Jewish state of ten million souls. Asked if that many could be accommodated within the U.N. partition boundaries, he replied: "I doubt it."

Unknown to its citizens, Israel has always been designated to colonize the Middle East and be a linchpin in the new world order.

"Our policy must be the unity of the human race," Ben Gurion told the TIME reporter. "We consider the United Nations to be a Jewish ideal."

Look at how the Mossad website "Debka Weekly" characterized the Iraq war:

"Washington will have its hand on the oil lever and the ability to make Iraq's neighbors dance to its plan for reshaping the national borders and governments of the Middle East." (Vol. 2, Issue 94, January 23, 2003)

In conclusion, the holocaust gave the globalists the "moral authority" to invade Palestine, and enlisted unwitting Jews worldwide to their cause. In fact, they betrayed the trust of European Jewry in the most heinous fashion. 

Yet Israelis and Jews, in general,  blindly follow their leaders, as European Jewry did.

Comments for "The Holocaust as Trauma Brainwashing"

JG said (September 25, 2018):

Something really bad has happened in the last 15 years. The public doesn't want answers for 911 or history anymore. Sone of the great "truthers" of the conspiracy media have even lost a lot of their interest also.
The public has accepted the premise that the truth is an unpopular subject that "offends". Therefore, don't even discuss it.

If this is our level of resistance to tyranny than we're all doomed. We'll be suckers for everything the MSM shoved down our throat.

The public is standing for nothing and falling for everything.

9-11 as Trauma Brainwashing

September 24, 2018

Events like the holocaust, Hiroshima, Pearl Harbor
the JFK assassination and 9-11 are used to trauma brainwash
society and change the direction of history.
It takes a traumatic event to change the course
of history.

In a 2003 article, I reflected on this
and on my personal brainwashing.

by Henry Makow Ph.D

In an article entitled "Why Hiroshima was Bombed", William Jones makes a convincing case that Japan was ready to surrender before the US dropped two nuclear bombs killing over 300,000 people.

Jones argues that in reality the bombs were dropped to alter the world's mental state.

The power of this new weapon had to be demonstrated in a devastating manner, to convince all nations to accept the straitjacket of "world government," he writes.

Mind control works by subjecting the victim to intense trauma (sexual abuse, electroshock, the torture or murder of others), which causes the mind to disassociate and splinter into multiple "alter" personalities. These are individually programmed to perform specific tasks.


War in general, and atrocities like Hiroshima, in particular, are traumatic events on a global scale. Humanity was brutalized. In a state of "disassociation," humanity was programmed to fear nuclear annihilation (the Cold War) and to accept huge military expenditures and the United Nations.

Similarly, the same cabal staged the attack on the World Trade Centre in order to create maximum trauma.

The buildings, symbols of American prosperity, disintegrated in a controlled demolition creating pictures of panicked New Yorkers fleeing an avalanche of smoke and debris. These images were played over and over on television.

The graphics for "America's New War" were ready and waiting.

In a state of dissociation and shock, Americans were programmed to believe that Muslim terrorists were responsible for this outrage.

Unquestioning, Americans accepted a totalitarian program of "security" measures which are in fact designed to deal with future domestic resistance to global government.  Americans docilely accepted huge military expenditures and wars aimed at robbing largely defenseless countries of their resources.


I was born in 1949. Until age 50, I was confused and somewhat dysfunctional because I relied on the mass media for my world view. In retrospect, I think my whole generation was subject to a mind control program.

I suspect it was developed by the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations in England and administered through the CIA and Rockefeller foundations through their control of education and the mass media.

The London-based Tavistock Institute is the central coordinating body for the cabal's mind control network. It was founded in 1922 by the British military to wage psychological warfare. Techniques developed for enemy populations were soon deployed at home. For the very wealthy, we are the enemy.


The mass media is used to maintain domestic psychological control. According to Dr. John Coleman, the directors of the US TV networks, major newspapers and publishers were all handpicked by British intelligence (which organized the CIA.) For example, before becoming head of CBS, William Paley was trained in mass brainwashing techniques at Tavistock. (The Committee of 300; pp. 248-249)

As a youth, I used to lie in bed at night reading magazines like Time and Newsweek from cover to cover. Somehow I became dysfunctional.

I learned there was something unbearably corrupt and empty about social values and institutions, especially capitalism, Christianity and the family. I could not participate in such a society.

Anything wholesome ("straight") was derided. I was bored with anything "normal." I was only attracted to "crazy" women.

Feminism relieved me of responsibility to support and lead a family. I didn't understand masculinity or know how to relate to women. In a developmental limbo, I was free to search for "truth."

Occasionally I had moments of lucidity: "Shouldn't I try to become part of the establishment instead of fighting it?" Due to the pressures of conformity, I quickly dismissed these intuitions.

As part of the "anti-war" movement and "counterculture", I imagined I was fighting the "establishment" when in fact I was its pawn.

The New York Times and Washington Post and the TV networks promoted the anti-war movement. These newspapers are instruments of the British-based Anglo American cabal and its CIA and CFR branches. When they don't want to promote something, they don't cover it.

The Vietnam War was a trap designed to weaken the United States, demoralize its people and enrich the banking and defense cartels. (I see the misguided war against the Muslim world in similar terms.)

The assassinations of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King traumatized millions of people. When the cabal ordered Lyndon Johnson not to seek re-election in 1968, the steam went out of the anti-war movement. 

Demonstrations at the Democratic Party convention in Chicago were brutally repressed by Mayor Daley's cops.


At once, millions of young people like me gave up on social change and decided to "turn inward." Conveniently, the CIA had prepared for this eventuality by spreading LSD everywhere. Timothy Leary invited us to "turn on, tune in and drop out."

Thus the idealistic generation, to which I belong, heir to our parents' hope for a better post-war world, was neutralized.

We "turned on," we "dropped out" but few of us really "tuned in."

You cannot become "enlightened" if you are ignorant and indifferent to what is happening on the planet. Enlightenment requires discernment of the realm of "maya" (illusion). Maya is the web of power and deceit that controls the world.

Enlightenment requires an active quest for truth in this world.


We are being prepared for the tyranny of one world government. No armies from abroad are invading us. We are being subverted from within.

"Prove it!" people say.

When I return home to find my house ransacked and my possessions were stolen, I don't need to prove I was robbed. I can see the evidence all around me.

I can see the destruction of the family and the resultant suffering due to the deceitful government attack on heterosexual identity. I can see the media convincing women that they will find fulfillment in careers instead of families.

I can see that civic values are no longer taught in schools; religion, national identity, and history are also suppressed. Instead, children are indoctrinated to kowtow to minorities and experiment with homosexuality. People are distracted by sports, entertainment and trivia, junk food for the soul. There is little honest discussion of our predicament, little effort to educate and uplift.

Communist (feminist) impostors have taken over the humanities at universities. Who would study with professors who think the truth is a function of power, and unknowable? Education by definition is the pursuit of truth.

The intelligentsia has sold out. Most artists and novelists wander in a desert of their own subjectivity. The mass media offers little reportage on the elites and on the new world order. Dissenting voices are marginalized.

Did anyone ask if we wanted globalization, official feminism, diversity, and multiculturalism? Were these ever election issues? These directives were delivered to politicians and media by the CIA and elite foundations.

All of this and more is foretold in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. If you haven't read it, you should.

Whether this document is a fraud, whether Jews Jesuits or Illuminati are behind it, a plan for world tyranny is taking effect and it bears an eerie similarity to this one.

A network of British aristocratic families, Rothschild and Rockefeller oil and finance, and satanic secret societies organized in "think tanks," foundations and intelligence agencies are behind it. They have been creating havoc for a long time and using mind control and the mass media to keep us in the dark.

Comments for "9-11 as Trauma Brainwashing"

JJ said (September 24, 2018):

Even though these things happen most people don't wake up. They have an 'enclave' attitude. If what happened hasn't affected themselves and their neighbors on their condominium floor or in their crescent they don't worry about it.

A plague could be happening down the block but most people just shrug their shoulders and say, "What can I do about it?" These people have no idea that they make many small decisions every day that allow the 9/11s of the world to happen and not only to happen but to permeate their lives for years to come.

And while some people and some governments are traumatized by these events most people, in my opinion, are more interested in watching the next episode of their favorite TV show. And this especially in socialistic countries where future provisions don't need to be worried about.

Doug P said (September 24, 2018):

Nothing we ever heard from official sources regarding 9-11, Pearl Harbour or the holocaust is actually true. So this adds to the hypothesis these events were synthesized for the purpose of opinion

The Struggle to Be Human: Evelyn's Witness

September 23, 2018

Evelyn, a 74-year old woman who lives alone on a farm with 6 dogs, 6 horses, and a miniature mule, feels God's presence constantly. She writes:

"I try to have a kind word to everyone whom I meet, accompanied by a smile.  
There are so many lonely folks out there who have no one to tell their problems or joys.  
Now, when I go to town I have so many hugs that I get a week's worth in one day! "

by Evelyn

Oh my goodness!  I am going to have to stop reading your website because I cannot subdue the urge to respond again.  Concerning MA's response to The Struggle to Stay Human, I counted his using the first person singular pronoun at least 35 times.  It sounds as though all of his efforts were for his own good. 

 A relationship with God Almighty/Jesus Christ...if it is the real thing...should NEVER be about what you can get out of it!  I am 74-years-old as of last week.  Jesus came into my heart at the age of nine.  I am so sorry to admit that my life was not always a saintly one.  I had the audacity to rebel against Him in my young adult life, because I hated the circumstances in which I found myself.  

If I had been God, I would have struck me down with a lightning bolt; but He patiently waited on me to pitch my temper tantrums and finally arrive at the very bottom of the pit.  And, like the prodigal son when he 'came to himself', my Heavenly Father lovingly lifted me out.  After much thought about the matter, I can honestly say that even if there is nothing after this life here on earth (which I do not believe), I would have rather lived it His way.
[If you get tired of reading this epistle, push the delete button; but God has laid you on my heart, and I feel so compelled to share Him with you.  You seem like a very honest, dear man who has given so much to others.] 
May I share with you, my witness?

After 23 years of marriage, my husband left me almost four years ago.  I live on a 26-acre farm with my six dogs, six remaining horses, and a miniature mule.  My daughter, son-in-law, and two grandsons live 15 miles away.  They come as much as they can to help.  I only go to the city once a week to do all of my errands. Sometimes, I go as many as six days with no human interaction except for a phone call here and there. 

 I must confess that I really miss hugs.  However,  I am NEVER alone.  I feel God's presence constantly.  My prayer list is fairly long, containing names of folks I heard about online or in the news, or have met in the stores.  My prayer life consists of talking to the Lord all day long just as if I could actually see Him.  I must wear out His ears!

On Fridays, prior to leaving home, I ask for Him to fill me up so much with Himself that He just explodes onto those with whom I encounter during the day.  I realize that to many I may be the only person who gives them a smile or a word of encouragement that day.  I try to have a kind word to everyone whom I meet, accompanied by a smile.  There are so many lonely folks out there who have no one to tell their problems or joys.  Now, when I go to town I have so many hugs that I get a week's worth in one day!  And the one thing I always tell each one of them is that I will be praying for them.  To my surprise, even non-Christians seem so appreciative to hear that.  And I go home that evening so comforted by others who have responded to me through His love touching them.
I am far from rich on worldly terms, but I can honestly say that each and every need is always met...sometimes in the form of a miracle....these are the most exciting.  Joshua told the children of Israel to make a stack of stones after they crossed Jordan River.  Whenever their kids asked them what the stones represented, the parents were to tell them of all that God had miraculously done.  My stack of stones must be higher than the Empire State Bldg., and each one is such a precious memory of a loving Heavenly Father. 
I just felt so sorry for whoever is M.A.  His last sentence just broke my heart. ["Ultimately, my struggle is that my spirit died and I have no ambition or ability to revive it and rise to a higher plane again."] But to you both, I want to say that God did not mean for your lives to be a struggle.  Jesus told us that He came for us to have life and to have it more abundantly.  On the other hand, He also said that life would not be a bowl of cherries.  We would have our share of struggles and trials, but He promised that He would never put on us more than we could bare.  I believe that last promise is possible because we are not to bare it in our own strength.  His strength and power can shine through our weaknesses. 
I will do my best to let this be my last email.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Comments for "The Struggle to Be Human: Evelyn's Witness"

anon said (September 24, 2018):

Concerning the article-The struggle to stay human. I am a RN. I get the feeling these days that some humans aren’t humans at all.

Not speaking about burnt out humans like M.A. I do pediatric cases in homes. Some of these young children...demonically possessed? They laugh as they try to inflict pain on me by pinching, biting, kicking while laughing. They have an abnormal strength and today one pinched me hard enough to rip the skin off my arm! Then they start a dramatic fake crying when a parent rushes to the child. They are so abnormal to me. I feel this strongly. I see in their eyes it was purposeful behavior. Their parents don’t have a clue. Vaccinations? I don’t know the answer. I do know that children were not like this before.

To protect my humanity, I live a reclusive life in Alaska and limit time on the internet and TV. I set boundaries with people and have had to let some friends and family members go because of such negative and selfish behaviors. Behaviors that appear to be unveiled somehow. I never saw it before. I feel people like me are being culled out by a variety of measures. God is my only protection these days.

Christine said (September 24, 2018):

I just wanted to say thanks for your latest article. Last night I cried myself to sleep, begging Jesus to help me hang on until He returns. Your words were exactly what I needed to read today.

It has been 28 years since I pledged to follow Jesus and live a life of service to others. My life was fairly easy before I changed, but I can honestly say now, the last 28 years have been hell. I feel exhausted and I have lost the motivation to keep struggling. I thought things were so bad in 1990, I gave it eight years at the most until Jesus returned. It's a blessing that I did not know at the time I would still be struggling to hang on 28 years later. In 1990, I could not imagine the dystopian nightmare the world would feel like in 2018. I have no idea if any of my efforts over the past 28 years have changed anything. Thanks for your article, and the comments. It helps to know I am not alone in my feelings.

Malcolm F said (September 23, 2018):

Verse 2 is Paul’s answer to how we turn all of life into worship. We must be transformed. We must be transformed. Not just our external behavior, but the way we feel and think — our minds. Verse 2: “Be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”

I look forward to meeting and chatting with Evelyn at the wedding feast!

Anonymous said (September 23, 2018):

Great article Henry!

Far more of us Christians need to spend much more time in the presence of God. A great little book along these lines of prayer and the cross is "Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ" by Jeanne Guyon. It has an excellent anointing on it which is very rare nowadays in this ungodly generation.

Mike Stone said (September 23, 2018):

Beautiful essay by Evelyn! It warmed my heart and changed my whole outlook for the day.

Marxism and Masonry the Marriage Made in Hell by Stephen Volk

September 24, 2018

Marxism and Masonry - the Marriage Made in Hell 
By Stephen Volk 

A New Age Paradigm in the Making! 

Pondering the mess with the Marxist and Masonic-infiltrated Catholic Church and Communist China today, maneuverings seem not only a prototype for Antichrist and Marxist/Masonic world government - with all the protocols nearly fulfilled - but may indicate what is just ahead when President Trump leaves office and even sooner for western Canada.

The Catholic Herald reports that Chinese President Xi Jinping has promoted a campaign of "Sinicization" of all religion in China, "a far-reaching strategy to control, govern, and manipulate all aspects of faith into a socialist mold infused with 'Chinese characteristics,'" according to the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom 2018 report. 

If that doesn't sound like Freemasonry, what does?  "Sinicization" = "Syncretism."  Judeo-Masonry is syncretistic.  Judeo-Freemasonry controls implemented in Communist China to prevent Christian and Muslim evangelizing.  The same is underway in Alberta, but with Christianity largely being the first target.

The Catholic Herald also reveals new regulations on religious practice in China went into effect in February 2018 - that codify the increased scrutiny and pressure on religious activities in China. On September 10, the Chinese government placed further restrictions on evangelization, making it illegal for any religious prayers, catechesis or preaching to be published online. This is being enforced via the country's extensive internet censorship. 

And as you read this we see Infowars and Alex Jones undergoing extensive internet censorship - preceding 81 more conservative and patriotic American channels to be banned.  Is this merely circumstantial?  Or is this an unrestrained Deep State simultaneous coordination? 

Also formulating under Albertan Marxist Minister of Education David Eggen, his quietly planned agenda is for all 61 Alberta private schools(to go offline after closing in 2019, preceded by the upcoming Alberta ban on counseling gays by faith-based organizations.  (Called "gay conversion therapy" by Canada's de-Christianizing Marxists in support of the Soros world de-population agenda.)  While Communist Chinese restrictions please the Marxist controllers, Marxist Minister of Education David Eggen in the same way pleases the Chinese Communists in Alberta, who adhere to the policies of the People's Republic of China: Opposing Muslim and Christian online evangelization in China and in Alberta.

Last month, the United Nations voiced alarm over reports that the Chinese government is detaining up to 1 million Uyghur muslims involuntarily in re-education internment camps. 

The United Nations must realize the same situation is developing in Canadian provinces - such as Alberta under Marxist David Eggen, whose behind-the-scenes agendas and policies mirror Communist China. 

So we see not only a major civil war brewing in America.  The Marxist/Soros/Alinsky "Ordo ab Chao" agenda for Alberta and the other Canadian provinces will guarantee escalating conflicts between Canada's Communist Chinese and Muslim populations.  While both Communist Chinese and Muslims are populating entire towns in Alberta, the Chinese are buying up the gold areas while Muslims have been climbing the ladder in Alberta's oil fields.  

And it all fits with the New World Order's Divide-and-Conquer agenda.  For their Management-by-Crisis agenda to be effective, they must create a crisis - Chinese-style Marxist opposition to Christians and Muslims -  and then come in with UN troops to control their way, gaining the "moral high ground" as Trotsky (Bronstein) would desire  This incremental Divide-and-Conquer agenda has been going on for centuries!  But to this day it largely remains outside the scope of "approved" history books, as those in power write "history."

Sordid Stats on South African Legislators

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics: 

29 have been accused of spousal abuse 
7 have been arrested for fraud 
19 have been accused of writing bad cheques 
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses 
3 have done time for assault

14 have been arrested on drug-related charges 
8 have been arrested for shoplifting 
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits 
84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year 

373 in total or approximately 70% 
Can you guess which organization this is? 

Give up yet? 

It's the 535 members of the SOUTH AFRICAN PARLIAMENT -
