Dr. Sabrosky has lectured widely on defense and foreign affairs in the United States and abroad.

Dr. Sabrosky lays out the truth -

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Brendon O'Connell

  1. Born in a small country town in rural Western Australia famous for sheep and wheat in 1970.
  2. Worked in mining and gold assaying - furnace work. Explosives, shot-firing.
  3. Went to university when 21 and obtained a Nursing degree by June 1996. Worked till 2001 then left in some disgust.
  4. Drifted for many years. Had many interesting experiences.
  5. Came across Alex Jones and a video on FEMA Camps in 1999. Started his "conspiracy journey.
  6. 911 happened. The rabbit hole got deeper.
  7. By 2003 Brendon was onto the "Jewish Issue". But only saw them as a "part" of a larger power structure with their own "thing".
  8. By 2005 he recognized and understood "Zionism" and in fact "The Jews" wielded enormous power - for all practical purposes - all of it.
  9. Brendon began studying intently the specific history of it all.
  10. He had known about Palestine and the specifics of WW2 history for many years. Prior to my deep journey in to all things "Jewy".
  11. Brendon met Leon Wende in 2005 and first began putting together the specifics of Israeli subversion and spying after becoming conversant in the specifics of technology companies and their role in 911 - AMDOCS, VERINT, P-TECH, MITRE, and in 2007...The Talpiot Program. Leon had been installing the Israeli weapons and sensor system in the Collins Class submarine which has a long history in the Australian media as a over priced "dud".
  12. Brendon was heading back to Nursing via a "re-registration" course when Operation Caste Lead happened - 2008-2009.
  13. Brendon attended the Friends of Palestine rally on May 2, 2009 and had the confrontation with Stanley Keyser.
  14. Brendon posted the video to Vimeo originally on May 5. Then I posted to YouTube on May 7. I was raided and arrested on May12, 2009
  15. He laughed at the charges of "Racial Vilification". Brendon told police he would be raising matters of national security at the trial.
  16. Police confiscated everything - computers etc. They came back to him after two weeks lauding me for my amazing "You Tube" and "Google" skills and were very interested in the subject of Israeli spying. We fell out heavily. A war began. It lasted for 18 months. Incredible harassment.
  17. He was jailed for three years for hurting Jewish feelings and "inciting". Jan 2011, till January 2014.
  18. He completed a 79 day hunger strike in jail and was told I would be welcome in iran, "with open arms", from then president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
  19. After 2 1/2 years of post release harassment and waring with the W.A police and repeated police raids he left the state and flew to Malaysia. Brendon then went on to Iran.
  20. In late 2016 I was given political asylum in Iran, verbally.
  21. On January 30 2017 I left Iran in disgust. I was to work with Government analysts and have a show on Press TV. Iran seemed more interested in attacking Saudi Arabia then it did attacking Israel.
  22. Brendon returned to Malaysia and has been there ever since except a short stay in a N.Z jail when he flew to New Zealand for political asylum between October 2017 and December 2017.
Sample of Brendon's content -



NEVER FORGET - This is just for those not informed.....
How many of you have heard this?
How many who deny there are things you have not been told about 9/11
These men were Israelis who were deported after detonating a bomb rather

NYPD POLICE RECORDING of ARREST of 2 ISRAELIS on 9/11/2001 & 240 ISRAELI SPIES ARRESTED 

Which Country Has Been Sharing Intel With Communist China?



A China-born MP for New Zealand’s ruling party has denied being a spy after it emerged that he had spent years studying and teaching in universities with links to Chinese intelligence services.

“I am not a spy,” Yang Jian, the National party’s first MP born in mainland China, told reporters on Wednesday after a joint investigation by the Financial Times and New Zealand’s Newsroom revealed what they described as his hidden past.

WATCH THIS VIDEO ON THIS COMMUNIST SPY


According to the New Zealand Herald the 55-year-old MP rejected the accusations as a racist “smear campaign” targeting him “just because I am Chinese”.

Yang emigrated to New Zealand from China in 1999 to take a job teaching international relations at Auckland University. Twelve years later he became an MP, quoting China’s former Communist party leader, Deng Xiaoping, in his debut speech to parliament.

“I don’t care if it is a white cat or a black cat,” the National party legislator said. “It’s a good cat as long as it catches mice.”

On Wednesday Yang was battling claims not that he was a black or a white cat, but a Trojan horse, after claims New Zealand’s security services had been investigating him for ties to China’s intelligence services.

Yang's statement:

“I refute any allegations that question my loyalty to New Zealand … Although I was not born here I am proud to call myself a New Zealander, obey our laws and contribute to this country,” he told a press conference. “I challenge those who are propagating these defamatory statements to front up and prove it.”
Yang Jian

The reported interest in Yang by New Zealand’s Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) stems from time he spent at two academic institutions in his native China between 1978 and 1994.

One is the Air Force Engineering Academy of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), where he studied English language as an undergraduate and subsequently taught.

The other is the Luoyang Foreign Language Institute in the central province of Henan. According to the Financial Times, that school is attached to the third department of the PLA’s general staff headquarters, which it described as China’s answer to the US National Security Agency (NSA) or the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The newspaper said the school specialised in training both “openly acknowledged military intelligence officers and ‘secret line’ deep cover agents”.

“Everyone I know who’s attended the Luoyang Foreign Language Institute has been in Chinese military intelligence or at least linked to that system,” Peter Mattis, a Jamestown Foundation expert on China’s military and intelligence, was quoted as saying.
On Wednesday, Yang admitted he had spent time at both institutions but insisted there had been nothing untoward about his work.
He released a CV which showed he had received a BA in English from the Air Force Engineering school in 1982 and an MA in American studies from the Luoyang school in 1990. 
The CV also showed that from 1982 to 1987 he worked as a “teaching assistant (associate lecturer)” at the former and a lecturer at the latter from 1990 until 1993 when he moved to Australia to study at the Australian National University.
According to stuff.co.nz, New Zealand’s biggest news website, Yang admitted that as a lecturer he had taught students how to intercept and decipher communications but not to engage in “the physical act of spying”.

      Personally, I think that governments world wide have lost their collectivist minds, and have been for a very long time controlled by hidden powers that know full well what they are doing and keep it hidden from the public. This is why it appears to many to be so insane and also explains why this man has not been tried for treason jailed or deported back to Communist China. And if you think China is alone in this, no no no......keep tuned in to the Resurrect the Republic Radio Show..... you are about to have a serious red pill bonanza coming.

Newsroom Investigation: National MP trained by Chinese spies

Watch the video story in the player above

A National Party MP who studied at an elite Chinese spy school before moving to New Zealand has attracted the interest of our Security Intelligence Service.

The list MP Jian Yang did not mention in his work or political CVs a decade he spent in the People's Liberation Army-Air Force Engineering College or the Luoyang language institute run by China's equivalent of the United States National Security Agency.

That agency, the Third Department, conducts spying activities for China.

Newsroom has been told that to have taught at the Air Force Engineering College, Yang would have almost certainly been an officer in Chinese military intelligence and a member of the Communist Party, as other students and staff have been.

Yang studied and then taught there before moving to Australia where he attended the Australian National University in Canberra. He migrated to this country to teach international relations in the politics department at the University of Auckland.

He was hand-picked by National Party president Peter Goodfellow to become an MP on its list in 2011, wooed directly by the former Prime Minister John Key and has been a key fundraiser for National among the Chinese community in Auckland.

As an MP he variously served on Parliament's Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade (from 2014 until last year), Commerce, Transport and Industrial Relations and Health and Science select committees and is prominent in New Zealand's interactions with the Chinese community and diplomatic and consular missions in Wellington and Auckland. He remains a Parliamentary Private Secretary for ethnic affairs.

Yang confirms

Newsroom has worked with the Financial Times in Hong Kong to investigate Yang's background.

We can reveal Yang confirmed in a recorded interview in Chinese with the Financial Times that he attended both military institutions.

In his comments to the FT researcher, Yang twice urged her to concentrate on the New Zealand election. "You don't need to write too much about myself," he said, adding later: "As for me myself, actually I don't feel it's necessary to include so many detailed things."

Interviewed today, by Newsroom, Yang refused to comment, saying repeatedly on camera: "Talk to my boss" and "I have nothing to hide". He then drove away.

Yang later released a statement saying he refuted "any allegations that question my loyalty to New Zealand".

The statement said he had been "nothing but upfront and transparent" about his education and employment.

Yang challenged those who were "propagating these defamatory statements" to front up and prove them.

"This is a smear campaign by nameless people who are out to damage me and the National Party 10 days from an election, just because I am Chinese."

An expert in Chinese intelligence Peter Mattis told Newsroom from the US that someone who attended and then taught at the Air Force Engineering College and attended the language institute would almost certainly have been an officer in China's PLA and member of the Communist Party.

SIS interest

Newsroom understands New Zealand's Security Intelligence Service has scrutinised him at times over three years, including interviewing one person about him last year.

The SIS said today it would not comment on operational matters, especially investigations involving individuals.

A hearing of Parliament's Privileges Committee into intelligence surveillance protocols for MPs occurred in late 2013. If an intelligence agency has cause to monitor an MP, the SIS director or Inspector-General of Intelligence is to brief the Speaker of the House. The Privileges Committee, chaired at the time by Attorney-General Chris Finlayson, polices contempts, which can include anything that could impede or restrict the rights of MPs to conduct their business unimpeded.

A Memorandum of Understanding between the SIS and Parliament's Speaker from 2010 says: "The only circumstances in which collection may be directed against a sitting MP is where a particular MP is suspected of undertaking activities relevant to security."

BRENDON O'CONNELL - COMMUNIST SOVIET ERA PENETRATION OP via ISRAEL with Tom Lacovara-Stewart and Mike Herzog


"Communist Soviet Era Penetration Operation" via "third party" country Israel.

Israel has always been a socialist Marxist state from day dot FOUNDED by Russian and Polish Communist/Zionist Jews. They are one in the same.

With over one million high level, highly educated Russians having immigrated post the collapse of the Soviet Union - who are in ALL the high places in government, technology and education - and most of them are proud Russians and not even "jewish", then we make the appropriate assumption - - - - Israel has FULL control of the United States. Therefore, Russia has full control of the United States.

  • Russian-speaking Jews who arrived over the past 20 years have integrated little, but influenced everything from culture to politics.
  • The million-plus citizens of the former Soviet Union who migrated to Israel in the past 20 years have not only made new lives of their own but they have transformed their adopted country. They have influenced the culture, hi-tech industry, language, education and, perhaps most significantly, Israeli politics.

  • The notion of the American government being infiltrated and substantially controlled by agents of a foreign power has been the stuff of endless Hollywood movies and television shows, but for various reasons such popular channels have never been employed to bring the true-life historical example to wide attention. I doubt if even one American in a hundred today is familiar with the name “Harry Dexter White” or dozens of similar agents.
  • Consider the fascinating perspective of the recently deceased Boris Berezovsky, once the most powerful of the Russian oligarchs and the puppet master behind President Boris Yeltsin during the late 1990s. After looting billions in national wealth and elevating Vladimir Putin to the presidency, he overreached himself and eventually went into exile. According to the New York Times, he had planned to transform Russia into a fake two-party state—one social-democratic and one neoconservative—in which heated public battles would be fought on divisive, symbolic issues, while behind the scenes both parties would actually be controlled by the same ruling elites. With the citizenry thus permanently divided and popular dissatisfaction safely channeled into meaningless dead-ends, Russia’s rulers could maintain unlimited wealth and power for themselves, with little threat to their reign. Given America’s history over the last couple of decades, perhaps we can guess where Berezovsky got his idea for such a clever political scheme.



Israel is a "technology juggernaught". All stolen from the US and others. Russia has a direct line into that technology. Elbit systems are servicing the F35, pulling it apart. They are ALL "Russian". Lockheed may as well have landed that technology in Red Square.

Soviet Russian Penetration Of Israel And The United States.
The greatest spy story in history by KGB spymaster Vladimir, Putin

KGB Infiltrated Highest Echelons of Israel’s Army, Business, and Political Leadership

While sifting through the notes of a former KGB archivist in England, Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman realized that the Russian spy service’s penetration of Israel was far more extensive than previously known.
Despite the many successes of the Shin Bet in exposing spies, scores of Israelis in the political world, the military, and private industry spied for the Soviets for decades without ever being suspected, much less caught.

THe KGB In Israel

The KGB's Middle East Files: Palestinians in the service of Mother Russia
Secret KGB documents reveal just how deeply involved the Soviet Union was in the spilling of Israeli blood. The Russian spy agency provided Palestinian terror organizations with funds, training and arms, running agents like 'Krotov' - aka Mahmoud Abbas, 'Aref' - or Yasser Arafat, and 'Nationalist,' who was behind several plane hijackings long before 9/11.

This series of articles explores these documents and brings to light the secrets they revealed. Part 5 of 5.

Basic theme - Soviet long term strategic planning started in 197-1919 to infiltrate America via Israel. Also with direct Russian Jewish Bolshevik penetration immigration direct from Russia - Bronfmans etc...

One example, Mossad master spy, Russian Jewish immigrant to Palestine Rafi Eitan. Now retired in Cuba with vast company holdings. Friend of Castro. Dont worry...nothing to see here ;-)
Rafael "Rafi" Eitan (Hebrewרפי איתן‬; born 23 November 1926) is an Israeli politician and former intelligence officer. Today he leads Gil and is a former Minister of Pensioner Affairs. In the past, he was in charge of the Mossad operation that led to the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann. He served as an advisor on terrorism to Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and in 1981 he was appointed to head the Bureau of Scientific Relations, then an intelligence entity on par with MossadAman and Shabak. Eitan assumed responsibility for and resigned over the Jonathan Pollard affair, and the Bureau was disbanded. From 1985 until 1993, he was head of the government's Chemicals company, which was expanded under his leadership. After 1993, he became a businessman, noted for several large scale agricultural and construction ventures in Cuba.

Rafi Eitan is ALSO the man who stole...PROMIS. The software that links them all. The software that became PRISM with the NSA Snowden revealed. ALL "backdoored" after being stolen and modied by...Israel. Sans...Talpiot Program...

It gets deeper...

Putin is running Israel. Putin is running the US. The greatest Soviet era master spy plan in history.

Socialism Begets Socialists - William Sullivan - with Commentary by Dan Bongino



Referencing recent polls and the popularity of Bernie Sanders among the youth, famed economist Walter E. Williams laments the signals that “young people prefer socialism to free market capitalism” in America.
The reason for this, he believes, “is a result of their ignorance and indoctrination during their school years, from kindergarten through college.  For the most part, neither they nor many of their teachers and professors know what free market capitalism is.” 
I have great admiration for Dr. Williams, but it struck me that this doesn’t paint a complete picture. 
First of all, the youth may not have a firm grasp on the virtues and benefits of a free market, but they certainly know what socialism is, economically speaking.  They know it involves the government engaging in the coerced seizure of wealth from some to provide for others.  They just really like that idea.
Secondly, while there is indeed an alarming lack of truthful instruction in schools and universities about socialism’s dark and murderous legacy that Dr. Williams later cites in the article (over 116 million deaths in the twentieth century alone), I find the conclusion that public-school teachers and college professors are to blame for the youth’s affinity for socialism far too convenient and simplistic an explanation.

Academia is generally the scapegoat we point toward when lamenting our indoctrinated leftist youth. But academia’s tendency to lionize socialism as virtue rather than an evil is not a new phenomenon, to be sure.  It’s been that way for many decades.  There must be something different in these youths’ experience today which might better explain this trend.
Herein lies the more troubling observation that we seem to prefer not to recognize.  Young people are being driven the arms of socialists not solely based upon what they’re being taught in the classroom, but by the example America has set before them.
There are two distinct components to this.

The welfare state, and the collapse of the nuclear family 

There can be no reasonable argument against the fact that our American welfare state is a practical manifestation of socialist economic principles.  It is the coercive seizure of property from taxpayers predicated upon a moral imperative that a government broker must seize and redistribute wealth to those who “need” it more. 

The welfare state is also an all-out assault upon the institution of marriage and the family.  This is because the welfare state is bolstered and grows by this cultivating greater “need” among constituents, and married couples with families “need” the welfare state less than single-parent families.  It should be noted that the data prove beyond a shadow of doubt that marriage promotes financial self-sufficiency.  And as Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation notes: “It is no accident that the collapse of marriage in America largely began with the War on Poverty and the proliferation of means-tested welfare programs that it fostered.” 
“Collapse” is an apt description of what has happened to the institution of marriage in America since LBJ’s crusade to destroy it began.  At just a cursory glance, the number of single-parent homes had increased from 9% in 1960 to 34% by 2013. 
Why?  It’s a simple matter of government-subsidized incentives.  “As means-tested benefits expanded,” continues Rector, “welfare began to serve as a substitute for a husband in the home, and low-income marriage began to disappear.”  As marriage is unquestionably a boon toward a family’s financial stability, this “created a destructive feedback loop: Welfare promoted the decline of marriage, which generated a need for more welfare.” 
Adding to this problem, the welfare state actually penalizes marriage among this demographic, which is in direr need of this financial stability that marriage can provide. “For example,” Rector goes on, “if a single mother who earns $20,000 per year marries a man who earns the same amount, the couple will typically lose about $12,000 per year in welfare benefits.  In effect, the welfare system makes it economically irrational for most low-income couples to marry.”

This was a destructive act against the American family, unquestionably.  The net effect of this government-approved economic prescription for low-income families is that a massively increasing number of Americans, the children of those households, are entering adulthood today with a sense of entitlement to enjoy the wealth that others have provided via hard work and industrial prowess. It is all entirely normal for them to collect this redistributed wealth, as it was normal for their parents. 

This has little to do with what they learned or didn’t learn in the classroom.  It has everything to do with the example that their parents set for them at home.  And it could be argued that their parents set that example because government officials we have elected throughout these past decades have continually incentivized them to do so.
How is it possible that we now wonder why so many among this expanding demographic prefer the idea of wealth redistribution, which is the central tenet of socialism, to the principles of a free market?
And this leads to the second, broader reason.



In the eyes of the youth, our government already practices “socialism”

Again, this isn’t a matter of the youth not understanding that coercive wealth redistribution is the central tenet of socialism.  It’s a simple matter of the youth observing the examples which are laid before them which America has created.
Interestingly, Dr. Williams notes this, but doesn’t seem to recognize that this might be a primary reason as to why so many youths subscribe to the tenets of socialism:
Tragically, two-thirds to three-quarters of the federal budget can be described as Congress taking the rightful earnings of one American to give to another American -- using one American to serve another.  Such acts include farm subsidies, business bailouts, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, and many other programs.
If up to three-quarters of the revenue that the government seizes from individuals is redistributed for the benefit of others, how is it justifiable to not classify our nation as a socialist state?  Like the child of the welfare home, American youths have simply observed that government taking wealth from some to provide for others is simply how the government legitimately works, because that is how the government has worked their entire lives, and for many decades before that. 
Yes, we can and should blame academia for dismissing the virtues of individual liberty enshrined in our Constitution, but what have we done in recent decades to protect and advance those virtues?  The question is the uncomfortable one, and it is why we prefer to simply blame the professors for indoctrinating our children.
We cannot roll back the legislative mistakes of the past overnight, and I fully understand that.  The only question we should ask ourselves is this: what can we do to constrain our federal government in the future from seizing rights which do not belong to it, according to our foundational social contract which was predicated upon the liberty of the individual above all things?
Perhaps our taking bold legislative strides away from socialism today will compel the culture, and our youth, away from socialism in the future.  Only then will we reverse what seems to be a rising tide of groomed socialists poised to swallow all of the ideas and virtues that once defined America.
