They were recently appointed as ambassadors by Israeli Member of Knesset Yehuda Glick.

https://www.facebook.com/events/2126549690950062/

Yehuda Glick is considered a right-wing activist.

Right wing doesn't come close.

----------
https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/austrias-neo-nazis-find-friends-israel
....It’s widely expected that Kurz’s conservative People’s Party will form a coalition with the far-right, anti-Muslim Freedom Party, headed by neo-Nazi Heinz-Christian Strache.

The Freedom Party’s success comes just weeks after the neo-Nazi Alternative for Germany – known by its initials AfD – took about 100 seats in the Bundestag.

And just like AfD, Austria’s Freedom Party has discovered a recent affinity for Israel.

Last year, Strache, who used to march with a group imitating the Hitler Youth, visited Israel at the invitation of lawmakers from Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party.

Just like other assorted anti-Semites and far-right extremists, Strache apparently saw Israel providing a laundering service. As media reports in Austria put it, the intention of Strache’s visit – complete with a pilgrimage to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial – was “to make himself kosher in Israel” in the hope that this would give him respectability elsewhere.

Europe’s new fascists and Israel’s right have also found an alliance in their common hatred of Muslims.

In June, Strache welcomed to Vienna Likud lawmaker Yehuda Glick, a leader in the so-called Temple Movement, which aims to destroy Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque and replace it with a Jewish temple.

A photo posted on Strache’s Facebook page shows the pair in a friendly meeting.

European Jewish organizations have condemned Israeli outreach to Europe’s far right, including the Freedom Party. Last November, the leader of the Vienna Jewish community published a letter calling on Israeli politicians to shun such meetings and “to draw a very clear red line between us and those who represent hate, neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism.”

Recall that while Germany’s Jewish community expressed horror at AfD’s recent electoral success, Yehuda Glick defended the party.

There’s no mystery why: AfD leaders have given strong backing to Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Austria’s Strache is following a similar line, supporting the settlements and becoming a champion of Israel’s claims to Jerusalem that are rejected by the rest of the world.

Strache handed Glick a letter to be delivered to Netanyahu vowing to do all he could to push for Austria’s embassy in Tel Aviv to be moved to Jerusalem.

With his party set to join the government, Strache will have his chance.

Once again, Israel is showing that its closest allies in Europe are the worst enemies of Jewish people.

....the role played by fanatical settlers intent on wresting control of the al-Aqsa compound in occupied East Jerusalem and eventually destroying it as part of an apocalyptic vision.

The compound, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as Temple Mount, includes the al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. It is one of the holiest shrines for Muslims all over the world, as well as a touchstone of Palestinian identity.

Israelis who seek to take over al-Aqsa see the 14 July attack and subsequent violence as an opportunity to advance this agenda. Immediately after the incident, the Temple movement’s official body released a statement calling to expel Palestinians from the compound: “We must liberate the Temple Mount from the murderous Islam and return it to the people of Israel.”

“Looking forward to building the Temple this year and hope that you will soon see the face of our righteous Messiah,” Baruch Marzel one of the most extreme leaders among Israel’s West Bank settlers, wrote last week in an open letter to the mufti of Jerusalem – the top Muslim official in the city.

Bezalel Smotrich, a Jewish Home party lawmaker, does not want to wait that long. “I would set up a synagogue on the Temple Mount today, this morning,” he said on Monday.

Under Israeli military protection, these settlers and extremists tour the grounds on a daily basis, hoping to provoke violent reactions from Palestinian worshippers by shouting and singing nationalistic anthems.

This then provides occupation forces with the necessary pretext to enact harsh measures, with the eventual goal of cleansing non-Jews and replacing the Muslim holy sites there with a Jewish temple, thus triggering a civilizational clash with Islam.

Yehuda Glick, a longtime leader of the Temple movement, now a Likud Party lawmaker, last week welcomed Israel’s ban on Muslims entering the al-Aqsa compound in the days following the shootings.

“This is an enormous game changer,” he said. “Everything is part of the redemption process but the things that happen on the Temple Mount are especially so.”

“Radical Muslims who desecrate with blood the holiness of the Temple Mount, the holiest place to the Jewish people, have no right to be there,” Glick and the Jewish Home party’s Shuli Moalem-Refaeli said.

Last week, Glick held a Temple movement emergency session in the Knesset building, Israel’s parliament. Attendees included genocide advocate Rabbi Yisrael Ariel and Bentzi Gopstein, leader of the anti-miscegenation youth movement Lehava....

I never heard of it before either. Almost all of the mentions of "advanced warfighter specialist" online are solely Rivera's, or Tom Clancy games.

One guy's Linkedin he mentions it as part of doctrine development, meaning teaching tools. I think both this guy and Rivera are trying to use the term because it's more impressive than "writing manuals." Or more likely, editing them to make sure they fit regulations.

Rivera's group Act For America is now banned from a major hotel chain as a hate group. Article is worth quoting from.

---------
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/hyatt-hotels-conservatives/
....ACT for America’s statement was released in response to Hyatt’s announcement on 28 September 2018 that they would no longer allow groups “who primarily seek to disparage or demean a specific group of people, to host meetings or events at our hotels.”

AForA has claimed that they are not an anti-Muslim organization and should not be excluded by Hyatt’s hate groups policy. But AForA’s leader, Brigitte Gabriel, has argued that the Arab world is beset by “barbarism” and that people in those countries “are dead-set on killing and destruction.” The group also organized “March Against Sharia” events in 2017, seizing on the conservative claim that “Sharia Law” is growing in the U.S.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has designated AForA as a hate group, arguing that “it pushes wild anti-Muslim conspiracy theories, denigrates American Muslims and deliberately conflates mainstream and radical Islam.”

---------
https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/group/act-america
ACT members and chapters routinely espouse racist views. ACT’s “March Against Shariah” rallies on June 10, 2017 attracted a host of extremists including neo-Nazi Billy Roper....

ACT began building relationships with some of the most prominent antigovernment groups in the country, including the Oath Keepers and Three Percenter groups. In the Pacific Northwest, a local chapter of ACT organized a late 2015 rally against refugees (that is, Muslim refugees) at the Capitol building in Olympia, Washington. “The Liberty for All III%” militia out of Yakima came in to provide security. Videos of the event show the Three Percenters patrolling the area with guns....

On February 16, North Carolina ACT member Robert Goodwill was recorded by a Triad City Beat reporter in a conversation with a man who argued that all Muslims in America should be killed. Goodwill’s response to the repeated calls to murder Muslims was “we’re not there yet.”

...longtime neo-Nazi Billy Roper was organizing ACT’s rally scheduled in Batesville, Arkansas, on June 6. Roper promoted the event on Stormfront, the neo-Nazi message board founded by former Klan leader Don Black....

The nationwide rallies of June 10 attracted a swath of white nationalists and neo-Nazis, and instead of asking these figures to leave, in some cases, ACT organizers at the event asked them to participate.

SOCIAL MEDIA BLACKOUT ON CONSERVATIVE SITES

It's nice having friends like Lady Brigitte Gabriel. We contacted her last night about what was happening to us and our friend's social media sites. The attack on our 1st amendment right to free speech must stop. This social media blackout on conservative and Judeo/Christian sites on social media is going to the Attorney General. Be a part of the solution and tell them we referred you.

The RiverWinds desire to truly make a positive change in the world today. To that end, they are actively involved in government liason, social improvements and increased environmental responsibility. They are qualified to do so through the Northern Arawak Tribal Nation. Chief Joseph is the War Chief and is currently the acting Principal Chief of the Tribe. Dr. Laralyn RiverWind is their Tekina (Tribal Spokesperson). They are approved speakers for ACT for America, the largest grassroots organization for counter-terrorism.

These two frauds were recently on the “Legends of the Lost with Megan Fox” show.

(General criticism of the show: https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2018/12/28/how-tv-shows-use-serious-archaeology-promote-bogus-history/?utm_term=.4c7a0aa25ba5 )


Quote
Fox goes to Malibu, CA. to meet with two people she advertises to us as Native Americans, and I’m really sorry folks but there is no easy way to do this…

Problems with the above statement:

    Two Native Americans do not speak for the 2.6 million Native Americans who live in the United States alone.

    One Native American tribe’s oral tradition is not the same oral tradition for the 562 Federally recognized tribes in the US alone.

    Even if we believe what Riverwind says and agree that there are a whopping 3 whole tribes that have giants myths in their oral traditions, you still have
    559 who apparently do not. So that kinda negates that whole “All Native Americas have myths about giants” argument right there.

    And then, of course, there is a the Riverwind’s themselves.


Quote
Chief Joseph Riverwind is listed on a skeptical watchdog site, New Age Frauds and Plastic Shamans, as being a New Age fundamentalist who pushes religious/Ancient Alien ideas, like Native people believing in Nephilim/giants that apparently came to Earth from the Pleiades and Orion’s belt (Colavito 2017).

Fox meets with Chief Joseph Riverwind, a Christian minister and Nephilim theorist whom regular readers will remember from his appearances in Nephilim theorist L. A. Marzulli’s mound builder videos. Riverwind presents himself as the keeper of Native oral traditions, though these stories are transparently Bible tales dressed in Native garb. Fox describes these Bible stories as an accurate account of how the end of the Ice Age led to a Noachian Flood.

First, Fox interviews self-appointed “chief” Joseph Riverwind (formerly known as Jose Rivera of Puerto Rico) and his wife a fake-doctor of naturopathy. Riverawind claims to be a “peace chief” of the Arawak Nation. This is not a federally recognized tribe and several sites on the internet show this guy to possibly be a charlatan involved with a hate group that believes Israel plays a part in the “End Times.” Rivera/Riverwind and his fake-doctor wife invent (according to NewAgeFraud.org) native beliefs that support their fundamentalist, Judeo-Christian fantasies.

More at this link I think it's important to include. Bolding is mine.

---------
https://archyfantasies.com/2018/12/28/no-native-americans-are-not-giant-hybrids-legends-of-the-lost-ep-3/
....The dog whistles for this are clear when Fox interviews the couple. Joseph Riverwind making blanket statements about all Native Americans. His twisting of clearly biblical stories and dressing them up with native sounding concepts, to make it seem like there is a lost Christian element to all Native American oral traditions. Laralyn Riverwind calling giants another ‘species’ that inhabited the Americas before Native American ancestors. The concept of giant ‘Hybrids’ that were evil.

And so on, and so on…

What you are actually hearing is Transoceanic Master Race drivel and Ancient Alien racism being dressed up as Native American oral tradition. Fox is banking on no one doing research into the Riverwinds, their work, or their claims, and hoping that if she show you that these two Native Americans believe in giants, then all Native Americans do and therefor giants must be real!

I wish I could say this was the low point for the show, but it’s not…oh it’s so not.

We go from the Riverwinds to Jim Vieira from Search for the Lost Giants, to listen to him try and sell us all on the idea that there is evidence of giants. He provides nothing that hasn’t been debunked by other people on other shows and again reiterates the biblical tie-ins of giants.

Then he brings up Denisovans. Vieira is impressed that there is a small percentage of Denisovan DNA in Native American DNA and I really need to get Jennifer Raff on to explain all this. But basically Vieira throws a bunch of buzz words at Fox who nods along eagerly and it sounds very science-y. So then…Fox says:

“50,000 years ago, a large human like species called Denisovans populated the Asian landscape these ancient giants migrated into the Americas and interbred with humans creating giant hybrids, and in fact traces of Denisovans genetics have been found in Native Americans” (Fox 2018)

That is a direct quote from the show.

I just…don’t have words.

The last bit of the show goes over the whole Cerutti mastodon from California again. It overlaps with the Solutrean Hypothesis that I’ve addressed before and am not going to rehash here. (Links below in the Resource section.)

In conclusion:
If you can’t tell from the tone of this article, I’m not ok with the statements of this show. The show starts off as the others have, showing us actual archaeology with dubious voice overs hinting at what Fox is planning on twisting the show into. Then it just jumps off the deep end with both feet making unjustified claims based on no evidence whatsoever and presenting people in positions of authority who have no business being there.

Fox is either ignorant of the implications of the claims she is making in this episode, or she is aware and is fine with them. Suggesting that Native Americans are somehow in-human because they are a giant/human hybrid is something straight out of the colonial era. It’s that exact kind of thinking that led to the atrocities that Native Americans faced at the hands of settlers and then the US Government. To hear that kind of racist rhetoric coming from a TV show in 2018 is beyond upsetting. I could rant for pages on this, and I’m really tempted to, but the reality is, there are too many people who are now watching this show and thinking “Oh archaeologists think giants predate Native Americans and also Native Americans are a different species than white people.” And no, that’s not hyperbolic, if you think that then you haven’t been paying attention...

This sounds like he claims that one of his actual heritage surnames is "Israel". This is false. He and Laralyn legally changed their names.

I've seen some of his genealogy record claims on Facebook. He either doesn't know what he is doing or does not care. Proper genealogy works backwards, step by step, from the current person. Every connection needs record proof.

Rivera's making a lot of obvious mistakes, and he's clearly doing it to appear to have a Jewish ancestor. 9 generations back would not be the 1680s, unless every mother had their child when she was in her 40s or older.

That "Spanish Inquisition baptism" is also suspicious. The church never recognized forced baptisms of Jews. They were usually done by angry mobs anyway.

His ancestor being a supposed sgt major? At the time in Spain, these were not high ranking sgts like in the US Army now. They were adjutants to generals. It was much more common that people were accused of being Jews in hiding than actually were. Jews had been officially expelled from Spain in 1492.
