(and too truthful for mainstream media)
Jewish groups sabotage rockers by blackmailing concert sponsors
30th July 2010
In a musical era dominated by trashy theatrics, perverted
performances, and meaningless noises, at least one band stands out for
preaching patriotism, faith in humanity, and individual rights for
So why do they get in so much trouble? Specifically, why does Poker
Face, a rock band with a worldwide following, a shining reputation and
inspirational ballads like “I’d rather die than be your slave,” keep
getting its concerts canceled?
“Because we tell the truth about Jew crimes, man,” answers Paul
Topete, leader of the popular protest band he founded more than 20
years ago. “We tell the truth about everybody’s crimes. It’s only when
we tell the truth about kosher crimes that we hear the largest whine.”
More than well-known to a surprisingly wide spectrum of political
groups in the United States, Poker Face is revered by its many fans
for pulling no punches against what it regards as an utterly corrupt
system of government. Maybe that’s why, despite a stifling mainstream
media blackout — except for negative reviews — Poker Face is reaching
new levels of public recognition.
The level of candid courage in its lyrics is as good as any protest
rock you’ll hear anywhere, but that’s not the most valuable aspect of
the band’s diverse repertoire. Their music resonates with all age
groups, all political groups, and all religious creeds (except for
that single one that plagues us all), which is doubtless why spineless
Jewish groups are so afraid of them.
More than a dozen times in the last four years, Poker Face has had its
concerts suddenly canceled. The reason for this is always the same.
The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, the primary producer of
Jewish censorship in the U.S., badgers promoters, sponsors and fellow
artists into shunning Poker Face by using the misleading shibboleth of
Anti-Semitism, and few entertainers and organizers have the courage to
withstand this political blackmail.
The totalitarian Talmudists do this with articles in Jewish owned
newspapers and other media that accuse Poker Face of being an
anti-Semitic band, and most concert promoters knuckle under to this
emotional extortion and exclude the one band that is actually trying
to inform its audience about the prevailing political reality, rather
than, like most bands, trying to soft-pedal or distract audiences from
such potent truths.
As the U.S. and most of the other countries get increasingly taken
over by the Jewish spin machine (which has long controlled the music
industry), the lyrics of Poker Face’s songs are getting increasingly
strident about Jewish crimes and the erosion of individual rights
throughout the world.
Just last week Poker Face was all set to play in a fundraiser for an
independent Congressional candidate in Pennsylvania named Jake Towne,
and as soon as the gig was announced, the ADL was hard at work
trashing the band and coercing the candidate, “through subtle threats
and innuendoes and their control of the press,” Topete explained, to
have the band removed from the concert. Towne, a political neophyte,
eventually buckled under the pressure and dropped Poker Face from the
Familiar with both the process and the result, Topete reacted with his
usual stoicism. “Something to look into is to see if the ADL
overstepped the bounds of its 501c3 non-profit status with their
obvious insinuations against Towne's campaign and veiled threats to
undermine his voter base. They should be investigated and if found in
violation, should have that exemption removed.”
Most notorious of the band’s achievements, according to the ADL, was
the use of one of their songs in a training video of a Michigan
militia group called the Hutaree.
“Ever since the Hutaree thing broke, the ADL started harassing us,
said Topete, a 40-something Mexican-American. He added proudly, “After
three previous honorable mentions on other ADL pages for our prior
pro-American activities, we now have our own page on the ADL website.
Hutaree is just one of hundreds of militias who have contacted us over
What kind of music does Poker Face really play? “Basically it’s very
forefatherish,” Topete said proudly. “As long as any group if pro God,
pro family and pro rights, these groups are more than welcome to use
our stuff for free.”
After almost two decades on the protest rock circuit, and despite the
constant harassment by the ADL and other Jewish groups, Poker Face is
revered by patriot agitators for advocating truth in government and
compassion in life.
“I love the stand we take for truth, and not just the easy truths,” says Topete.
Patriots and informed freedom lovers know about Poker Face from the
important events they’ve championed and embellished. Notable among
these was the Poker Face appearance at the 2008 benefit in New
Hampshire for tax protesters Ed and Elaine Brown. Wearing bulletproof
vests with Homeland Security helicopters threatening overhead, Poker
Face let loose with their usual aplomb, and mooned the feds flying
overhead when their devastating Sunburst spotlights got too low and
Poker Face also gained a lot of credibility performing at the Capitol
building in Washington, twice in 2007 and 2008 for the Ron Paul
Presidential run, but the best performance of all may have been when
they stopped the Commie Mommie March. Poker Face helped organize and
then played at a counter rally to the local commie mommie who came
home to Bethlehem and wanted to start a local movement there.
Rally In The Valley was born Oct. 1, 2000 on a bridge in the band’s
hometown of Bethlehem, Pa., when a pathetic and staged political event
of less then a hundred anti-gun activists was totally overwhelmed by
2,000 of the band’s closest friends. The band’s rally later that day
included speakers Sheriff Richard Mack, Maria Heil from Second
Amendment Sisters, an American Jew J. Neil Schulman and Kenneth
Blanchard, a black American who wrote the book, “Black Man With A
Gun.” Topete smiled with pride at the mention of it. “We had the whole
cross section of America covered so the anti-gunners couldn’t bray
that ‘You’re a racist’ shit at us, as they incessantly do today. ”
The video of that triumph of free speech can be seen here.
Their songs are becoming increasingly political, if that’s possible.
They have crafted their signature song to a beautifully condensed
video of Mel Gibson’s Patriot movie, titled “Rather Die Than Be Your
Slave,” which includes the memorable chorus:
“I’d rather die than be your slave/
I will survive, and you’ll feel my rage/
It’s not a question of being brave/
I’d just rather die than be your slave.”
“That’s the one that seems to reach most Americans,” said Topete.

Listening to Poker Face is one enthralling experience. Talking to Paul
Topete can be even greater, especially as he is usually surrounded by
a sea of friends who revere him. As good as the band is, his rants are
often even better, and they come with the albums in the fabulous
lessons in history contained in the band’s liner notes.
“Freedom is, and always will be, the ability to express yourself in
whatever way, and to whatever level, you desire. To be the ultimate
freak you are meant to be. So long as the journey you are on does not
interfere with your brother’s unique determination as well.”
“We also have a very proactive government that has begun to attack and
kill its own people. From Gordon Kahl to the Weavers to the 76 men and
women and children at Waco, to John Hirko here in our local town of
Bethlehem, we have seen ‘the State’ act as judge, jury and executioner
before due process of the law was given.”
Beyond the fabulous liner notes is the website itself, pokerface.com,
which is an encyclopedia of suppressed history containing many
profound surprises, including a word processing program that shames
the mainstream versions of programs produced by the corporate

“This is the source of most of our problems,” Topete explained, “for
it is here that our fans historically document many of the crimes that
befall America and the world, and those responsible for it. Bookmark
it, spread it around to your friends. You can spend hours, days,
weeks, years going thru all of the posts and information.”
Poker Face’s next major appearance looks to be at the Live Free or Die
Festival in southern New Hampshire the last week in August.
The band’s long term objective? Topete: “We hope to be the leaders
of the new protest rock movement. And be a part of history making…
taking back our country thru the use of music, just like what happened
in the Sixties.”
And Paul’s goal in life? “That we can finally reach the day where
there’s real freedom and real love, where I can be that real freak
unencumbered by the man. If I choose to smoke a fattie on the front
step, why should I have to do it in the closet?
