The INF Treaty governs missiles like these.

Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about why the Trump Administration chose to withdraw the United States from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty or INF Treaty, a treaty with Russia that had been in effect for 22 years.

A bridge too far

Are Jews building a bridge too far?

Are some Jews building a bridge too far? Why do Jews reach out to Muslims and get no outreach in return? The record of Muslims offers no promise of peace.

What is the real purpose of the United Nations?

The United Nations, and especially its General Assembly, is chief instrument of globalism and international government today, and precursor of world government. (And zero population growth) The UN works against the sovereignty of nation-states.

The United Nations (UN) is widely known as “The house that Hiss built.” So, who was Alger Hiss? He was a graduate of Johns Hopkins University ( Phi Beta Kappa), and of Harvard Law School, and was a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. In 1933, he entered government service in President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration, and served successively in the Departments of Agriculture, Justice, and State. He attended the Yalta Conference as an adviser to Roosevelt. He was instrumental in forming, and in promoting our joining, the United Nations and served as its first secretary-general at the San Francisco Conference. Soon thereafter he was indicted on two charges of perjury while testifying about communist activities and served jail time. Later it was determined that he was a communist spy for Russia.

Talking Turkey

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey

Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about Turkey. Not the kind of turkey you might have for Thanksgiving or Christmas but the kind that is a country located on the northern border of Syria in the Middle East. The kind that is so strategically located that it controls Russian access to its only entrance to the Mediterranean. You may have heard that the United States is having some problems with Turkey right now and in fact has recently placed some economic sanctions on that country and some of its leaders individually. In addition there have been disagreements over the roles of Turkey and the United States in Syria which inspired Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to go to Turkey in June of this year and work out a deal with his Turkish counterpart to avoid conflict there.

When the Giving Tree Stops Giving

The Giving Tree as a tapestry in felt.

The United States of America emerged from World War II as the world’s undisputed superpower economically and militarily. The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP) was an American initiative to aid Western Europe that gave over $13 billion (nearly $110 billion in 2016 US dollars) in economic assistance to help rebuild Western European communities after the end of the war. The Marshall Plan provided political stability for the world and created a world market for American goods.

Who Poisoned The Skripals

Vladimir Putin, effective head of the Russian Federation. Did he order the poisoning of the Skripals? Or did globalists frame him?

This report appears on Good Friday. This is good news day and if good news is out there, I will find it today. But first: who poisoned the Skripals? Did anyone actually poison them? It’s hard to be sure in our world. That’s because no government, and virtually no media, can be trusted to report the truth.

The Enemy Within

Yitzhak Rabin might have signed his death warrant by accepting this prize for the Oslo Accords. And was he guilty of complicity in murder by so signing? Does Amalek rear his head in this form?

According to Rabbi Matis Weinberg, Amalek should be regarded not only as the sworn enemy of Israel, but of memory. Because Amalek is the enemy of significance, of transnational moral ideas and values.
