More Thomas Jefferson; Less Rahm Emanuel

You may recall political strategist Rahm Emanuel’s sage advice to government.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” Well, I prefer Thomas Jefferson’s advice.

“In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution.”

Unfortunately, when panic ensues, people are far more likely to defer to Emanuel and his ilk than Jefferson. When people get scared, they want government to “do something.”

Anything.

And that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now.

A couple of weeks ago, Trump declared a state of emergency under two federal laws: the Stafford Act and the National Emergencies Act (NEA). The Stafford Act allows the federal government to “support” state governments to address an emergency. Incidentally, there is no constitutional authority for such an act. The NEA gives the president even broader authority. It authorizes the president to invoke special powers contained in more than 100 other provisions of federal law.

According to The Atlantic:

“There are laws that enable the president to shut down or take over radio stations, freeze Americans’ bank accounts, unilaterally limit international trade, and detail U.S. forces to other governments. And the NEA has no requirement that the powers the president invokes relate to the nature of the emergency.”

In fact, the president has already invoked the Defense Production Act claiming it empowers him to force private companies to produce things to fight the virus. Trump said the act allows him to do “a lot of good things, if we need it.”

This was intended for war. Now it’s being used for a “health crisis.”

Power always expands.

This is exactly what the Constitution was intended to prevent.

I’m sure a lot of people will agree these are “good things.” They will cheer Trump’s “bold leadership” in the time of crisis. But here’s an important thing to remember, put beautifully by my friend Jim Babka.

 “The power you give a politician you love today, to do something you want, is a power that will be used tomorrow by a politician you loathe, to do things you’ll hate.”

Every dot and tittle of power the president seizes during this “crisis” will be available to the next president when he or she decides to use it. Government power only grows. It never contracts.

It would be wise to remember that truth during this time.

We need a little more Jefferson and a little less Emanuel.

A Futile Effort to End War and the Violent Insanity of the State

2 Comments

I feel like a guy standing before a rapidly advancing tsunami. I’m throwing up a peace sign as if that will stop the wall of water.

I began to realize in 1970, as did millions of other eighteen-year-old American males, that the government considered me little more than a dispensable body to be kidnapped and turned into a bullet-stopping slave.

I was saved by the crank of a tumbler operated over television by two old men in suits. This was a year after the state decided to institute a “lottery” for the draft. I rolled high, so I didn’t need to flee to Canada. Millions of others were not so lucky.

It wasn’t out of empathy and benevolence the state implemented this slavery lottery. For several years, college students and other young people were marching all over America, going so far as to burn down ROTC buildings and occupying college administration offices to force the state to end its insane war in Vietnam.

Eventually, this war was shut down, but behind the scenes less noticeable—to Americans at least—wars were waged around the world. You had to read between the lines of The New York Times and The Washington Post to learn about US dirty dealing in Angola, Chile, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Pakistan, Cambodia, on and on, seemingly endless.

The Pentagon devised a new tactic. Instead of drafting middle-class kids, they made “military service” “voluntary,” in other words only the desperately poor—and those brainwashed by lies and “patriotism”—are sucked into the war machine.

Changing the “War No More” Sentiment of Armistice Day to the War-Glorifying Propaganda of Veterans Day

Duty to Warn

“Oh, my name is Francis Tolliver, in Liverpool I dwell,

each Christmas come since World War I I’ve learned its lessons well,

that the ones who call the shots won’t be among the dead and lame,

and on each end of the rifle we’re the same.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

99 years ago, on 11-11-1918, at precisely 11 am Paris time, a cease-fire (aka “truce” or “armistice”) was agreed to and signed by military negotiators from France, Britain and Germany. The terms of the truce ultimately resulted in the end of the “War to End All Wars” 7 months later when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919.

Germany’s surrender to the Allies was regarded as the prudent thing to do after Kaiser Wilhelm’s tyrannical monarchy was overthrown by democratic socialist forces earlier in 1918. Erich Ludendorf, a classic example of Prussian militarism, was one of the German generals who first broached the idea of starting the negotiations that eventually led to Germany’s surrender.

Ludendorf saw that 1) Germany’s army was terminally exhausted, demoralized and poorly equipped; 2) the United States had finally entered the war with fresh troops; 3) the fledgling government at home was in disarray; 4) the war had bankrupted the nation (as all wars eventually do – unless there is enough looting and plundering of the occupied territories); 5) that civilians at home were starving; and 6) that victory was an impossibility. The writing was on the wall; Germany had no choice but to surrender.

The armistice was signed at Compiegne, France by four French and British military officers, the German Foreign Minister, two German military officers and one German civilian. More

“Our government has done more to harm us than any supposed terrorists could have done. They have and are taking our freedom away a day at a time. We are now under constant surveillance and spied on by government agencies. We cannot write an email, text a friend, drive down the road, board a plane, talk on our phones or even shop without our messages being intercepted and logged, our calls being recorded, our license plates being scanned, our face    being photographed and our fingerprints and dna collected at every conceivable opportunity.  So who is it that the government is really afraid of?

The View from a Political Atheist

After years of writing about the egregious conduct of the federal and state governments, and, after watching the public sitting idly by while our rights are violated especially under this bogus “war on terror”, I have to wonder what happened to us? Maybe the better question is….what happened to so many of you? When did you lose your sense of who you are and where you come from, and what that should represent? Why are so many so quick to label those who are sounding the alarms that something has gone terribly wrong, as being “conspiracy theorists?” Or maybe, leftists, or neo-cons, communists, etc… These labels and others like them serve no purpose but to keep us divided and warring amongst our selves while those orchestrating our demise continue their insidious work. In the end, they all coalesce into the same group. That political divide that so many of us love to argue, is an illusion.

As a political atheist, I firmly believe that if a politician’s lips are moving and sound is coming out…there is a good chance they are lying to us.

How about a free, functional government?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donald Trump was supposed to be the first president since JFK to be free of obligations to the high cabal usual funders and owners of American presidents. That’s how he was self-billed and that was his major selling point – that he had very largely funded his own campaign and, with a very successful businessman’s approach, would be more-knowledgeable and success-capable than his politician predecessors. So that he could get things Total Earth Science Skepticdone for and at the bidding of the people, rather than the multi-billionaire plutocrats who were accustomed to bribing and ruling.

And, perhaps strangely, if you google it, you can find purported background information both ways – that he paid for most of his rather sketchy campaign himself, or alternatively, that his elevation was heavily-financed by mega-rich interests primarily on Wall Street.

But, regardless, he is now, as a sudden recruit to the bomb-bomb, waw-waw persuasion, coming over from the presumed militarism-minimization philosophy of regime-change wars being too costly and unavailing. The neocons have got him now, apparently, however they did it, and here we go again – except more than ever.

One current theory, voiced in an online article apparently without an author a couple of days ago, entitled “Is Trump Really In Control?”, conjectures that the other members of the administration, mostly ex-generals, because they, not so much the president, have been mouthing threats in every direction lately, must, thus, be in control. While the president enjoys his golf and holds endless meetings and pep rallies – leaving war “to the generals”, mostly faceless. Whoever they are, all too casually assumed to be human or approximately so. More

A Summary of What is Likely to Have Been a False Flag Operation in Syria

The narrative accompanying the video footage that swayed Trump showed the now discredited-as-propaganda “White Hat” brigade members trying to hose down the dying poison gas victims in a region where there is no American presence. The unknown makers of the video claimed that the chemical agent responsible was military-grade Sarin gas.

Within hours after the Al Queda video went viral, a pair of U.S. Navy destroyers – that had been pre-positioned in the eastern Mediterranean – launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles (at a cost of some $1.5 million each, which equals $85,000,000 of scarce taxpayer dollars in one pop, to the delight of some weapons manufacturer or other), targeting aircraft, hardened shelters, fuel storage, munitions supply, air defense and communications facilities at the Syrian air base. Only 20% of the air base was disabled and jets were flying out of the base within a few  days.

The cooler heads of most of the members of the UN Security Council refused to blame Assad until further study of the facts were examined by an independent group.

This space is reserved for the true story, if we Americans are ever allowed to hear it.

“Over 70% of the people who died so far in Iraq as the result of our war were civilians. What kind of hate and desire for revenge resides in the relatives of those civilians? Where in our religious beliefs is there any justification for such mass genocide? We euphemistically refer to these deaths as “collateral damage,” while the people in Iraq referred to them as family, friends, and neighbors.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

150814-jeb-iraq-good-dealWhat is the point of no return? What could possibly happen to an individual that would cause them to abandon all sense of order and seek instead violent and deadly revenge against another human being or group of people, many of whom are personally unknown to the perpetrator(s) of violence? Is this human action a devotion to some fanatical practice of religion or simply a reaction to violent stimuli?

If religious fanaticism is the answer, is it possible such religious fervor exhibited in the acts of the “terrorist” creates in its opponent an overwhelming desire to abandon their professed religion? If we are truly fighting a war against radical Islam, is it OK to abandon the tenets of Christianity, a faith professed by the great majority of the so-called conservatives who support the perpetual war for peace paradigm of our government? If that has actually occurred, have the radical terrorists not already won the war? What else could constitute acceptance of the deaths of hundreds of thousands; many of them civilians, to prosecute wars we know are based on lies hatched in the halls of our own government and nurtured to maturity by a state-owned and controlled media?

This past week I read an email written by a professed man of the cloth writing in support of one of his military heroes who is credited with killing several hundred of our “enemy” as a sniper. His statement was “we can only imagine how many soldier’s lives were saved by this man’s actions.” Unwittingly, this preacher struck at the very core of the issue. To support the actions of a government we personally claim to abhor when it comes to our individual liberty, imaginations must be employed in order to salve our collective conscience as we go about supporting wars perpetrated on government lies, deception and propaganda.

THE ART OF PROMOTING VIOLENCE A BIT OF WAR & TERRORISM BUT ALSO HOPE

12-9-2015 11-02-00 AMDoes anyone remember that shortly after 9/11 President George W. Bush sent special adviser Karl Rove to Hollywood to meet with 40 movie industry executives in order to promote and legitimize war? Yes, it was a horrible propaganda agenda but it wasn’t called that.

To this day, the elite’s of America and the world are still on that same mission. If it isn’t the Arab/Islam world of Egypt, or Libya, Afghanistan and Syria that the elite powers may stir up, there is now saber rattling going on with Russia. And our own mainstream media will be there to add fuel to the fire. What is it about violence that is so attractive? For one thing, it sells newspapers, TV spots and acts as a conditioning factor to where certain people will feed upon it and want to see action.

Urgent (Unlearned) Lessons From MLK: Pointing out the Stupidity of America’s Militarist, Pro-Fascist, Anti-Democracy, Interventionist Foreign Policy

(An Excerpt from MLK’s 1967 “Beyond Vietnam” Speech)

Each day the war goes on the hatred increases … The Americans are 000-1013161725forcing even their friends into becoming their enemies. It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

This week anti-racist Americans honor Martin Luther King (and racist Americans sneer at) and his heroic pioneering efforts to achieve liberation for African-Americans from their second-hand citizenry. Next month, during Black History Month there will be opportunities to learn more about African-American history from slavery up to the present day. According to his most famous and most censored-out speech (excerpt below, which turned out to be his death warrant), Dr King gave his listeners an important history lesson about the folly of colonialism and militarist, interventionist foreign policies that eventually and inevitably see “the chickens coming home to roost”.

The lessons that King tried to teach us explained why our nation (not to mention France and Britain and other murderous white Christian colonizers throughout the history of the world like Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Germany, Italy, etc), are constantly provoking mortal enmity among the billions of disrespected victims in every region of the world where our corporate resource extractors have landed the troops and propagandists to make the world “safe for predatory capitalism”.

The Forgotten Christmas Truce of 1914 and the Unlearned Lessons That Could Have Prevented the Century of War 1914 – 2014

___________________________________________

It was exactly 100 years ago this month when the Christmas Truce of 1914 occurred, when Christian soldiers on both sides of the infamous No Man’s Land of the Western Front, recognized their common humanity, dropped 1237971_10151696892798163_43495779_ntheir guns and fraternized with the so-called enemies that they had been ordered to kill without mercy the day before. As mentioned in last week’s column, the truth of that remarkable event has since been effectively covered up by state and military authorities (and the embedded journalists at the time) because they were angered (and embarrassed) by the breakdown of military discipline.

In the annals of war, such “mutinies” are now unheard of. The generals and (as well as the saber-rattling, chest-thumping politicians and war profiteers back home) rapidly developed strategies to prevent such behavior from happening again.

Christmas Eve of 1914 was only 5 months into World War I, and the cold, weary, homesick soldiers found themselves not heroes, as expected, but rather miserable, frightened and disillusioned wretches living in rat- and louse-infested trenches. Most of them had dreamed heroic dreams when they had signed up to kill and die for King and Country a few months earlier, and they had been fully expecting to be home for the holidays. More

Audience marvels as currencies burn

And old and organized international cabal of white-collar banking thieves prowl the planet with a grab bag of heinous tools—war, deception, bribery, financial manipulations, recessions, depressions, shortages, misery for humanity— perfected over the centuries; enabling them to steal money and commandeer nations’ (and citizens’)  treasure by offering deliberate debt the bankers know can’t be repaid when they make the offer.

hijackedUsing the British army at the time, these bankers, who are headquartered in a square-mile area known as The City located in the middle of London, and who are an independent “country” with their own constitution, law, and police force separate from Britain,  attempted to gain control of America with two wars—the Revolution and the War of 1812. Their agents were back supplying Indian tribes throughout the country and on America’s borders with weapons, ammunition, supplies, staples and encouragement to kill colonists and wage war on America before the Revolution’s powder smoke settled

Government Hypocrisy Preceeding Attack on Syria

You won’t hear anyone say the word, war.

This parsing of words, this come-to-be expected word weaseling is nothing new.  Kerry, Dempsey, the President and every Senator never uttered the word “war” which would require the consent of congress to wage.   The refraining from using this word and instead referring to the war plans for Syria  as a “strike, intervention or action”, is what the President is relying on to by-pass congress and the Constitution. As long as no one dares call it a war, there appears to be no need for the President to get congress’s consent.

________________________________________________________________________________________

As the country rises up and resoundingly rejects any action of any kind in Syria, the propaganda is running knee deep in the District of Criminals.  Because of the decades long stream of what has turned out to be faulty “intelligence”, outright lies about whatever fictional threat they were using to to attack another nation in order to seize their assets (oil) and to depose one government after another only to install a government more to our liking, we are faced with another needless war.

The US Senate is meeting and discussing how and why they intend to start another senseless war, this time in Syria.  The pretentiousness of these discussions borders on the absurd and is an insult to the intelligence of America.  Continually citing “intelligence”, human, satellite and other methods of savespying, Senator’s Menendez and Corker are followed by the new Secretary of State, John Kerry, among others.  Each of them attempting to somehow tie the civil war in Syria to the national security of the United States.  This will last for hours of course, due to the fact that there is no connection. This makes the argument particularly tedious.

Among the weakest arguments heard over the last several days; “It would make us appear weak”.  Well now, if ever there was an argument for bombing and terrorizing another nation on the other side of the globe, it would have to be our big giant national ego.  Apparently, our government believes that the Syrian people are not terrorized quite enough as a result of internal turmoil and the proper response to this would be to create more turmoil, more terror and to destroy everything in sight along with “collateral” damage.  This means men, women AND children will be unilaterally harmed or killed by our actions.

Supposedly vast intelligence exists to indicate that a chemical attack actually took place.  This intelligence came from the same sources who supplied the intelligence for the Iraq war.  You remember…….the evidence that never was?

Collateral damage in Syria is said to be deemed to be “low” in this instance.  So,.. what?  So are we going to accept 5,000 men, women and children being killed by us?  10,000?  20,000?  What’s the magic number?

IF I understand this correctly, gassing people is a big problem, but blowing them up along with their entire community so that you can overthrow their government and seize their national assets, is not. More

13 Lies: An Abbreviated History of U.S. Presidents Leading Us to War

David Redick
Activist Post

Those of you who long ago figured out that George Bush lied about, and twisted, 9-11, the role of Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Osama, and WMDs to justify the invasions of Afghanistan, and Iraq, and to create the War on Terror, will not be surprised to learn that our prior Presidents, and their complicit henchmen, have lied us into every war since our Revolution. Their true reasons have not been legal, constitutional, or politically acceptable, so they invent one or more false reasons that they can sell to the people. The recent WikiLeaks disclosures confirm how our foreign policy is riddled with lies. Surprise!

Sadly, most people, especially the troops and their families, believe the lies and proudly support these “wars for defense of our Liberties.”  It doesn’t occur to them that our leaders would be so evil as to spend the lives of our troops to gain their hidden goals for Empire-USA (oil, power, land, etc.).  

Iran is their next target
Thus, the war drums are beating in DC to justify bombing Iran, so this is a good time to consider whether our leaders are lying again. READ MORE

In 1926, General Cherep-Spiridovich wrote, “War is only a ‘legalized mass murder.’ Thus Christ pointed out those whoarrange all wars and revolutions, and that their chief cause is Satan and his sons’ ‘lust of murder.’ But ‘Christians’ never seem to agree with Christ.”[1] Gandhi concurred when he said, “Everyone but Christians understands that Jesus was nonviolent.” Those who “arrange all wars,” are typically among the very top echelon of secret societies, often Illuminati front groups like Skull and Bones, many of whom serve in elected and unelected government positions. Government officials implement a dark agenda of terrorism and genocide through directives developed by members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) the Bilderberg (BB), and the Trilateral Commission (TC).

WAR IS A FOOLS ERRAND

________________________________________________________

The banking oligarchy, and most of their American serfs, wrongly assumed that America’s military and economic status gave it the means to impose its view of what the world should be like on other Nations. Then came Korea and Viet Nam, whose attitude and resolve went unchanged, and the lesson that primitive people have no breaking point remained unlearned.

Once again Americans are foolishly assuming that the peoples of the Middle East will change their attitudes if enough force is imposed for a long enough time, and enough lies of a better future are made. History belies this assumption. Unfortunately, history teaches its lessons to only those willing to learn, and the banking oligarchy, our government, and a large portion of Americans have shown no signs of having such willingness. So let’s start singing bye-bye, Miss American Pie, war is nothing but a bad way to die!

I might add it’s also a damn good way to get richer and expand their control over the little minds of their voluntary slaves. Yea, war is a racket alright, and the scum of the earth love it. People need to realize that War is always a fool’s errand in pursuit of ephemera. 

The most incredible thing about all of this is the continuing ignorance of so many Americans who still are completely unaware that all of these so-called justified wars are a cover for the real war on American freedom. A free society cannot be CONTROLLED OR OWNED. All that’s needed to own everything, is to destroy the populations ability to control the value of their currency.

Joan Veon recently pointed a light at where the globe’s money is concentrated today.

Controlling currency is key to the financial “elite’s” end game. They’ve done this through their central banks, fiat money, usury, etc. as a means to control nations through their currencies.

The British, seeing a U.S. colony plum, couldn’t defeat America militarily during the revolution, so they tried again in the War of 1812. They succeeded in burning the White House and Capitol before being defeated again a couple years later; agreeing to a treaty in 1814.

Everyone went home.

But the London bankers, undeterred it seems, set out on a course to do financially what they could not do militarily. Not content to think small, they began to plan and establish banks around the world; their intent being to control these countries’ through their currencies. More

An American Soldier Exposes – Kill Everybody

One ex-soldier speaks out about the escalation of the wars.  Orders were given to “kill everybody”.   The soldiers know they were sent there on a lie; that they continue to fight a war because politicians refuse to end it.

BLINDLY SUPPORT GOVERNMENT – RIGHT OR WRONG

WANNA LOSE YOUR SOUL? THEN BLINDLY SUPPORT GOVERNMENT – RIGHT OR WRONG

by: J. Speer-Williams 

“When we talk about compassion we talk in terms of being kind. But compassion is not so much being kind; it is being creative [enough] to wake a person up” ChogyamTrungpaRinpoch 1939-1987

A soul-less being has no empathy for others. Lose your empathy, and you’ve lost your soul.

My use of the word “empathy” here goes deeper than the concept of mere pity, as pity has a condescending connotation.

Empathizing with another does not, however, mean being a sucker; one can practice “tough-love” while being empathetic, as one would practice tough-love on onesself.

Empathy, according to my dictionary, is a complete understanding, so intimate that the feelings, thoughts, and motives of one are readily comprehended by another. I believe we are all connected at a spiritual level, but lose sight of that as we fall from spiritually by a loss of empathy; a spiritually we can regain with a growing empathy for others. More

Another War in the Works

By Paul Craig Roberts

September 29, 2009 “Information Clearing House” —

MSM, Does anyone remember all the lies that they were told by President Bush and the “mainstream media” about the grave threat to America from weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? These lies were repeated endlessly in the print and TV media despite the reports from the weapons inspectors, who had been sent to Iraq, that no such weapons existed.

The weapons inspectors did an honest job in Iraq and told the truth, but the mainstream media did not emphasize their findings. Instead, the media served as a Ministry of Propaganda, beating the war drums for the US government.

Now the whole process is repeating itself. This time the target is Iran.

As there is no real case against Iran, Obama took a script from Bush’s playbook and fabricated one.

The American Right Must Get Off The Pot on Israel, War, and Draft

Leave a comment

Excerpted from the article: 

It is time to give laudatory kudos to The Council on the National Interest (CNI) for doing what virtually no one else has had the guts to do in contemporary America: challenging the Jewish lobby in America, specifically the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC). CNI is specifically charging AIPAC with what is specifically provable and obvious: that the latter is a foreign lobby which is in the business of influencing (read “purchasing“) the American government for purposes solely related to driving American domestic and foreign policy in a direction designed to benefit the government of Israel–to the exclusion of everything and everyone else.

 

Pat Buchanan once drew the ire of the Jewish-dominated American Media Establishment for referring to Washington’s Capitol Hill as “Zionist Occupied Territory” (ZOA). If ever there was proof of the truth of Mr. Buchanan’s charge, it came tonight in the form of the deliberate absence of major American network coverage of the anti-AIPAC protest sponsored by CNI, which had its genesis at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and 7th street in the District. The denizens of ABC, NBC, and CBS apparently deemed the issue of parental notification of minors seeking abortion–and the government-subsidized Viagra distributions to sexually predatory felons–to be more newsworthy than whether or not the National Government of the American People is owned lock-stock-and-barrel by a foreign country. One so grateful for the $5 billion a year in direct foreign aid subsidies received from the United States, that it regularly operates a spy ring to steal state secrets from its major benefactor. Move over Jonathan Pollard. Make room for accused AIPAC spies, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman.

 

Mr. Rosen was AIPAC’s policy director; Mr. Weissman was, conveniently enough, AIPAC’s senior analyst on Iran. Their American contact, Mr. Larry Franklin, was a National Security Agency analyst with a specialty in matters Iranian and connections to the policy big wigs on the Neo-Conservative Right who reportedly find preemptive war with Iran to be the next major project to be undertaken by the American government and the Likudniks who permeate its National Security Establishment. Howard Kohr, AIPAC’s Executive Director, fired these Kosher Benedict Arnolds only upon the advice of Nathan Lewin, the lawyer retained by AIPAC to deal with the FBI espionage investigation. It seems Mr. Lewin has more than a pretty good idea that federal indictments against Rosen and Weissman are just around the proverbial corner. (end excerpt)

Co-opting religion to promote war

Leave a comment

 

The current US President sees the war in Iraq as a Christian crusade…

Is this kind of bizarre thinking a rare and strange anomaly?

Unfortunately not.

The fact is “Christianity”is frequently co-opted and its missionaries are often used as a weapons.

Excepts from a often-banned film on this taboo subject:

Why so much excitement? You have no real choices!

Leave a comment

I am absolutely mystified by the excitement people from both sides of what is virtually the same political party regardless of whether you call it Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal.  The fact is you are being presented with two presidential candidates expressing almost identical ideas and policies and both are just the continuation of George W. Bush’s plans and policies that have devastated our country for more than seven years.

 

The only real difference between McCain and Obama is in their presentation.  Presentation is every thing regardless of what you are selling.  McCain is presenting himself as another aggressive war president who will supposedly keep you safe from those nasty terrorists, and Obama is presenting himself as the diplomat who will only go to war as a last resort.  In either case, both are selling us continued wars, continued loss of liberty and a big brother style government. It’s just a matter of which camp you fall into and what kind of personality appeals to you. 

 

If you are one of those people that tend to lean towards machismo in your candidate, replete with tough talk, swaggering, a hair-trigger temper and bullying you’re more likely to vote for McCain. 

 

McCain puts me in mind of that creepy little critter in Lord of the Rings who’s coveting of the prized ring turned him from a man into a twisted and ugly creature.  There is no doubt in my mind that this man would sell his soul to sit in the Oval Office especially after having been cheated out of it by the likes of George W. Bush.  McCain got the message. Gone is the so-called “maverick” that purveyor of straight talk.  In its place is a man who will say or do whatever he has to, to claim the prize. 

 

During the national debates McCain looked almost crazed at times especially when for all intents and purposes the Republican Party had someone in mind other than him for the coveted nomination ;( a nomination that I personally believe had been promised to him in 2000 if he would forfeit the nomination to Bush.) Then he stated that we could be in war for another 100 years…a clear signal to the global mafia that he was on board.  Prior to making this statement, opposition to him being nominated was monumental within the Republican Party ranks.  Almost immediately after, opposition seemed to evaporate at least where it counted most which was in the RNC.  After all, McCain had just indicated that he would continue the devastating policies and agenda of the Bush administration. 

 

If you are a person who is more drawn to diplomacy or swayed by the ability of a candidate to wax eloquent and to speak endlessly without ever revealing much of anything, Obama is your man.  To those of us who suffer from some collective form of political shock from the last seven years, Obama is very appealing and he seems to always be in control of himself.  Adept at pinpointing issues of most concern to us common people and promising to reverse all the terrible damage done to our country under the Bush regime, all will end up being nothing more than empty political promises regardless of what his true intent was.  Even he knows this.  The free trader, capitalist, no loyalties to anyone but their banker crowd will never, let Obama make the changes he speaks of.  And, Obama just selected Joe Biden, known for his support for the war, his support of globalization that is devastating not only our economy but economies around the world.  Obama just signaled that he is on board with the globalists.

 

Neither candidate has made any reference to the unconstitutional expansion of powers of the executive branch or made any indication that they would reverse these illegal actions.  

 

Neither speaks of the Security & Prosperity Partnership that is laying the foundation for the North American Union that will see the forfeiture of our sovereignty. 

 

Neither will move to secure our southern border.

 

Both will try to implement an amnesty plan.

 

Neither candidate will make any effort to restore our loss of constitutional rights and protections. 

 

Obama’s Comprehensive healthcare reform will not happen unless the insurance industry, big pharma and the medical industry can be assured of getting a huge piece of the pie and continue to siphon billions out of the American public.

 

McCain will try to force privatization of Social Security, even as the stock markets indicate that nothing is stable and many bigger fortunes have been lost in recent weeks.  His plan, just as Bush’s, is to funnel the money for retirement into the stock market where these funds have long been coveted and where they will be subject to high risk ventures with no oversight.

 

The list goes on, but in the end regardless of who we cast our vote for we will get the same president.  Nothing will change that will benefit ordinary American’s.  Everything will be forfeited to the globalist agenda.  The only choice you have to make is whether you want your bad news from another wannabe cowboy who can’t possibly sit the horse he’s trying to ride, or, do you want it delivered to you in a more subtle and palatable way from someone who makes bad news seem, not so bad. 

 

Either way you’re going to get bad news; its all in how it’s presented.

More on what Ted told Obama, Hillary exposes her Freudian Slip for all to see, real threats to security and stability, the neocons intentions to stay in power, new theatres of war, the fall of Rome and other great civilizations

In a recent issue, we outlined how Barack Obama was told by Ted Kennedy not to take Hillary Clinton on as a running mate and gave some of the background behind that recommendation.  Basically, Ted knows that the Clinton and Bush crime families, who have reeked their reign of terror on the citizens of the US in the Bush-Clinton-Bush triple whammy, were most likely behind the assassination of JFK, Jr., or if you prefer, the “accidental” plane crash that took him out of contention as a potential presidential candidate for the 2000 election year.  The “accident” took place in 1999 while Clinton was finishing his second and final term as President and the candidates for the office of President for the 2000 election year were being lined up.  JFK, Jr. could probably have beaten Dubya hands down if he had taken the Democratic nomination away from Al Gore, who in fact later won the election, but for the fraud in Florida voting counts where brother Jeb took care of things for brother George.  Al Gore, under pressure from the Bush crime family, who were in the process of “influencing” the US Supreme Court, was promised a special hat trick in connection with a movie about global warming disinformation he was asked to create and promote by upper tier Illuminists.  Hence, the piece of cinematic garbage, “An Inconvenient Truth,” which brought Gore an Emmy, an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize as payola for giving up the Presidency to Caligula.

Great site for opinion and commentary. 

There Will Be No Change…..from either McCain or Obama

Leave a comment

I am one of those individuals who held out hope that some stellar individual would step out of the masses and run for president of the United States.  Although Ron Paul remains a constant threat to the status quo, both political party’s would rather see him dead than on a ballot.  Ron Paul represents the greatest threat to the globalists who control both major parties.

Thinking that this would be the election cycle of the century, the one that would produce a viable third party and break the monopolizing death grip the Republicans and Democrats have wielded for far too long, I realized with much disallusionment that there never was or is any intent to actually start a third party. All this was, was the dangling of the perverbial carrot in front of people who are so desperate for change that even the slimmest hope was enough to keep us distracted. 

So entrenched is the power within the current political establishment; so total is the control of the national and local media on all levels that even CNN reported more than a month ago that Ron Paul had supposedly dropped out.  He hasn’t.  He didn’t.  But, I have to wonder why if he was earnest in his efforts, he didn’t run independent of any political party..especially the Republican/neo-con faction that has orchestrated so much corruption and been so willing to dismantle our Republic for the almighty buck.  Paul had to have known that McCain was going to be the nominee even if the power brokers in the Republican party had to hack more votes and fraud the system yet again to get him in there.  Why would he have run in a party that he knew would never support him?  That bugs me. 

We have no viable third party, and what we are left with is the McCain’s, Clinton’s and Obama’s, not one of which will make one move not approved by the globalists.  With Clinton announcing she will suspend or end her campaign, we are left with two men who both belong to the CFR….one of the most Un-American groups ever assembled, and no hope for the future of our country.  The selling out, the selling off, the dismantling of our Constitition, the bastardization of our laws, the creation of monstrous bureacracies, the illegal trade agreements, the corporatization of our government and country will continue unabated.  Neither of the two remaining contenders for the presidency will do anything more than continue the process started under Reagan and complete the Project for the New American Century as envisioned by the likes of Dick Cheney. 

We needed a third party.  We needed to break the death grip of the globalists, the New World Order advocates and start the process of returning our nation to its former great status.  Republicans? Democrats?  All the same bunch!  As bad as the 108th and 109th congresses were ( and they were appallingly terrible) the 110th is by far the worst and will be remembered most for its betrayal of the American people.  Their refusal to impeach an incredibly corrupt administration; their insistence in trying to pass amnesty for illegal aliens against the will of the majority of citizens; their refusal to repeal the horrendous rights robbing legislative acts of the last seven years or to even secure our borders against further illegal invasion is just the tip of the iceberg.  The collusion with the neo-cons becomes more apparent with each passing day.  Right or left, conservative or liberal only applies to those of us out here who still think these labels actually mean anything to those in power. 

The failure of a third party to materialize leaves us with little to choose from in November.  We have McCain on the “right” who advocates another 100 years of war, and who seems to have become somewhat maniacal in his demeanor as the election draws near.  Each time I see this man his apparent mental instability seems to have worsened.  Apparently what he covets is close to becoming a reality in his mind and it seems to be pushing him over the edge.  But, McCain has signaled the neo-cons that he’s their boy and will continue their plans for war and plunder and the destruction of the sovereign United States.  In my opinion, with only one third of Republicans actually supporting this man, if he “wins” the November election we need to smash every electronic voting machine we can find.  We should anyway.

On the “left” we have Obama.  Young by standards, inexperienced, but very charismatic.  Like all politicians he is promising things he knows he can’t or won’t deliver on.  But it all sounds really good doesn’t it?  What will happen to Obama will be the same thing that happened to all those newly elected Democrats in 2006.  He will go to Washington DC on a mission……and get soundly silenced and rendered ineffective by the global elitists and corporate thugs that control everything in what is supposed to be our government.

The excuse I hear people giving for why we can’t have a third party is that then no candidate would get a majority of the votes.  None of them do anyway as only about 60% of eligible voters bother to vote.   That means that a 51% voter margin actually represents only about 30% of eligible voters……hardly a win or a mandate.  Throw in a Ron Paul and we could effectively vote in a president on as little as 15% of the eligible vote…….of course it wouldn’t be him. 

Regardless, don’t look for any monumental change in anything in government unless it is its ever expanding and self empowering size.  Neither remaining candidate will have the power or the will to stop the train wreck that is the US Corporate government. 

We needed a viable third party……and it should have been us.

Is an International Financial Conspiracy Driving World Events?

Is an International Financial Conspiracy Driving World Events?
Global Research, March 27, 2008

“They make a desolation and call it peace.” -Tacitus

 

Was Alan Greenspan really as dumb as he looks in creating the late housing bubble that threatens to bring the entire Western debt-based economy crashing down?

Was something as easy to foresee as this really the trigger for a meltdown that could destroy the world’s financial system? Or was it done, perhaps, “accidentally on purpose”?

And if so, why?

Let’s turn to the U.S. personage that conspiracy theorists most often mention as being at the epicenter of whatever elite plan is reputed to exist. This would be David Rockefeller, the 92-year-old multibillionaire godfather of the world’s financial elite.

The lengthy Wikipedia article on Rockefeller provides the following version of a celebrated statement he allegedly made in an opening speech at the Bilderberg conference in Baden-Baden, Germany, in June 1991:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war, but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in the past centuries.”

This speech was made 17 years ago. It came at the beginning in the U.S. of the Bill Clinton administration. Rockefeller speaks of an “us.” This “us,” he says, has been having meetings for almost 40 years. If you add the 17 years since he gave the speech it was 57 years ago—two full generations.

Not only has “us” developed a “plan for the world,” but the attempt to “develop” the plan has evidently been successful, at least in Rockefeller’s mind. The ultimate goal of “us” is to create “the supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers.” This will lead, he says, toward a “world government which will never again know war.”

Just as an intellectual exercise, let’s assume that David Rockefeller is as important and powerful a person as he seems to think he is. Let’s give the man some credit and assume that he and “us” have in fact succeeded to a degree. This would mean that the major decisions and events since Rockefeller gave the speech in 1991 have probably also been part of the plan or that they have at least represented its features and intent.


David Rockefeller at Harvard in 2006

Therefore by examining these decisions and events we can determine whether in fact Rockefeller is being truthful in his assessment that the Utopia he has in mind is on its way or has at least come closer to being realized. In no particular order, some of these decisions and events are as follows:

The implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement by the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations has led to the elimination of millions of U.S. manufacturing jobs as well as the destruction of U.S. family farming in favor of global agribusiness.

Similar free trade agreements, including those under the auspices of the World Trade Organization, have led to export of millions of additional manufacturing jobs to China and elsewhere.

Average family income in the U.S. has steadily eroded while the share of the nation’s wealth held by the richest income brackets has soared. Some Wall Street hedge fund managers are making $1 billion a year while the number of homeless, including war veterans, pushes a million.

The housing bubble has led to a huge inflation of real estate prices in the U.S. Millions of homes are falling into the hands of the bankers through foreclosure. The cost of land and rentals has further decimated family agriculture as well as small business. Rising property taxes based on inflated land assessments have forced millions of lower-and middle-income people and elderly out of their homes.

The fact that bankers now control national monetary systems in their entirety, under laws where money is introduced only through lending at interest, has resulted in a massive debt pyramid that is teetering on collapse. This “monetarist” system was pioneered by Rockefeller-family funded economists at the University of Chicago. The rub is that when the pyramid comes down and everyone goes bankrupt the banks which have been creating money “out of thin air” will then be able to seize valuable assets for pennies on the dollar, as J.P. Morgan Chase is preparing to do with the businesses owned by Carlyle Capital. Meaningful regulation of the financial industry has been abandoned by government, and any politician that stands in the way, such as Eliot Spitzer, is destroyed. 

The total tax burden on Americans from federal, state, and local governments now exceeds forty percent of income and is rising. Today, with a recession starting, the Democratic-controlled Congress, while supporting the minuscule “stimulus” rebate, is hypocritically raising taxes further, even for middle-income earners. Back taxes, along with student loans, can no longer be eliminated by bankruptcy protection.

Gasoline prices are soaring even as companies like Exxon-Mobil are recording record profits. Other commodity prices are going up steadily, including food prices, with some countries starting to experience near-famine conditions. 40 million people in America are officially classified as “food insecure.”

Corporate control of water and mineral resources has removed much of what is available from the public commons, and the deregulation of energy production has led to huge increases in the costs of electricity in many areas.

The destruction of family farming in the U.S. by NAFTA (along with family farming in Mexico and Canada) has been mirrored by policies toward other nations on the part of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. Around the world, due to pressure from the “Washington consensus,” local food self-sufficiency has been replaced by raising of crops primarily for export. Migration off the land has fed the population of huge slums around the cities of underdeveloped countries.

Since the 1980s the U.S. has been fighting wars throughout the world either directly or by proxy. The former Yugoslavia was dismembered by NATO. Under cover of 9/11 and by utilizing off-the-shelf plans, the U.S. is now engaged in the military conquest and permanent military occupation of the Middle East. A worldwide encirclement of Russia and China by U.S. and NATO forces is underway, and a new push to militarize space has begun. The Western powers are clearly preparing for at least the possibility of another world war.

The expansion of the U.S. military empire abroad is mirrored by the creation of a totalitarian system of surveillance at home, whereby the activities of private citizens are spied upon and tracked by technology and systems which have been put into place under the heading of the “War on Terror.” Human microchip implants for tracking purposes are starting to be used. The military-industrial complex has become the nation’s largest and most successful industry with tens of thousands of planners engaged in devising new and better ways, both overt and covert, to destroy both foreign and domestic “enemies.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. has the largest prison population of any country on earth. Plus everyday life for millions of people is a crushing burden of government, insurance, and financial fees, charges, and paperwork. And the simplest business transactions are burdened by rake-offs for legions of accountants, lawyers, bureaucrats, brokers, speculators, and middlemen.

Finally, the deteriorating conditions of everyday life have given rise to an extraordinary level of stress-related disease, as well as epidemic alcohol and drug addiction. Governments themselves around the world engage in drug trafficking. Instead of working to lower stress levels, public policy is skewed in favor of an enormous prescription drug industry that grows rich off the declining level of health through treatment of symptoms rather than causes. Many of these heavily-advertised medications themselves have devastating side-effects.

This list should at least give us enough to go on in order to ask a hard question. Assuming again that all these things are parts of the elitist plan which Mr. Rockefeller boasts to have been developing, isn’t it a little strange that the means which have been selected to achieve “peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity” involve so much violence, deception, oppression, exploitation, graft, and theft?

In fact it looks to me as though “our plan for the world” is one that is based on genocide, world war, police control of populations, and seizure of the world’s resources by the financial elite and their puppet politicians and military forces.

In particular, could there be a better way to accomplish all this than what appears to be a concentrated plan to remove from people everywhere in the world the ability to raise their own food? After all, genocide by starvation may be slow, but it is very effective. Especially when it can be blamed on “market forces.”

And can it be that the “us” which is doing all these things, including the great David Rockefeller himself, are just criminals who have somehow taken over the seats of power? If so, they are criminals who have done everything they can to watch their backs and cover their tracks, including a chokehold over the educational system and the monopolistic mainstream media.

One thing is certain: The voters of America have never knowingly agreed to any of this.

Why Don’t We Just Buy the Oil…..and Get Rid of Congress?

Leave a comment

From my mathematical friend who is consumed with the real meaning of the numbers that are flung about by that collection of dregs that now parades as our Federal government, I received this small note this morning:

“quote”……

 How Much Is Too Much To Spend On a Preemptive War?

As of this third week in March 2008, the wars in the Mideast (Afghanistan and Iraq) have cost us $538.6 Billion.  That is $5,686 per U.S. family.

Let’s see if we can wrap our minds around the numbers.

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would buy ALL the fuel for ALL the commuters in Minnesota for 116 years and four months.  (At 12,000 miles per year, 20 mpg, $3.10 per gallon)

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would pay a year of premiums on a $955 per month health insurance policy for EVERY uninsured person in the United States.  (46,995,000 as of August, 2007)

·         At $250 Million per bridge, $538.6 Billion dollars would replace 2,154 bridges

·         $538.6 Billion dollars is a LOT of money.

My $5,686 could have been spent in many better ways.

At the risk of sounding naïve, why don’t we just buy the oil, instead of trying to control it?

Dan Martin (end quote..)

I agree Dan.  Why didn’t we just save our selves, our country and the world a lot of grief, and just pay for the oil we needed or wanted?  Why?  Because blasting other countries off the map, killing indigenous populations, manufacturing weaponry and making war a business was far more profitable on so many fronts. 

Think what we have accomplished by attacking non-threatening countries that had something we coveted.  Just look at the “freedom” we brought to Afghanistan and Iraq!  Look at these burgeoning democracies that have governments we hand picked to make sure things were done our way to benefit the elite.   We have many things to be thankful for in this massive genocide for oil and thanks to the use of Depleted Uranium on the Iraqi’s, massive and horrendous birth defects are occurring at an alarming rate.  Not that it matters, those exposed to this radio-active gas are going to have a short life anyway, and that includes our military that was also exposed.

Thanks to Paul Bremer, Iraqi farmers can no longer even save seed for next years crops.  It’s illegal.

Thanks to the World Bank, an Iraqi national cannot be loaned money for a business start-up . . . only foreign investors allowed.”

Thanks to Halliburton and KBR and others like them, reconstruction has cost billions upon billions, most of which can’t be accounted for and nothing is getting built that would account for the massive amount of money American taxpayers have had to ante up.

Thanks to Cheney and the oil cartels, we are building a multi-billion dollar embassy in the middle of a pile of rubble we created.  This….while we keep destroying everything in sight and killing anything that moves. 

Thanks to Blackwater and CACI, we now have roving gangs of hired killers that are not subject to any laws anywhere.

Thanks to these wars of aggression to benefit the greed of a few, we are faced with a staged collapse of our own economy. As Americans, we now own less than 18% of our own country while our infrastructure is sold off to foreign investors, home foreclosures skyrocket, and jobs are shipped to foreign countries.

Thanks to the phony War OF Terror, we have lost the writ of habeas corpus, due process, and the right to defend ourselves.  We can now be declared “domestic terrorists” for speaking out against the policies of corporate government.

Thanks to the failure of Homeland Security or the Attorney General, our borders remain wide open while we are colonized by people who not only do not respect us, but openly express their contempt for us; all to benefit the free movement of people and goods for the benefit of business under the S&PP and to facilitate the North American Union Merger.

Thanks to the phony War OF Terror, the president can now declare a national emergency even if he is the only one to perceive one (congress can’t review it for six months); and declare martial law, suspending the Constitution with its Bill of Rights and any upcoming elections, and effectively establish himself as king and dictator. 

Thanks to the Civil Assistance Plan signed with Canada (also with Germany and Mexico and others) we can look forward to foreign militaries patrolling our streets, among other things.

And thanks to our do nothing congresses, nothing has been done or will be done to halt or stop any of this.  What this tells me is that they are part of the problem.  We already know they are math challenged and don’t understand that the money they blow is ours.  For some reason they have come to believe that the money they waste is theirs.  This siphon on the public monies is so addictive that these parasites on the public couldn’t even vote to stop their selves from “earmarking” funds for wasteful and stupid projects but they sure don’t have any problem passing an almost unanimous vote nine times in the last seven years giving their selves raises and perks.

Then there is that illegal immigration thing.  For some reason, Speaker Pelosi just can’t seem to understand that her constituents, and 78% of her countrymen oppose amnesty, increases in visa’s, and continuing to support to the tune of billions of dollars a year just to the Federal government (your tax money) people who broke our laws.  Ms. Pelosi now works behind the scenes trying to pass or include one anti-American amnesty plan or another.  This after Americans rose up in massive numbers in opposition to each and every form of the “Dream Act” that was put forward last year.  Billions of dollars that could have helped American families, created jobs, shored up our infrastructure or built that damn fence!  have gone to pay the livelihood of people who are not even legal residents of this country.  Thank you so much, Princess Pelosi! 

I have come to the conclusion that the best thing we could do at this point is to rid ourselves of congress.  This institution has become nothing but a siphon of taxpayer money and is totally useless in either defending or protecting the citizenry from what has become an evil empire or is conspiring with it to dismantle our country.  Dismantling the federal congress would allow states to individually decide what they will support or not.  My, but that would change the landscape of corporate government wouldn’t it?  If the senators and representatives were only on the state level and had to stay in-state and actually face the people they are trying to screw over, maybe then things would change.  I would be thankful for that.

Maybe we need to send Dan to Washington (he always has his super-duper calculator with him) and have him sit down and explain to these imbeciles that the math just doesn’t work.  Maybe we could all send each of our legislators a calculator and maybe provide them with a tutor or math translator (after all we’re paying for translators in public schools for kids who don’t speak English) to help them better understand that we are no longer willing to pay for private wars, illegal immigrants, or bridges to nowhere, and that we cannot afford to continue these devastating policies.

But, thanks to those who cling to the right vs. left paradigm, who think God loves us more than others, that gay people are demon possessed, who hate the Muslims because some money grubbing preacher said that God wanted us to hate them and kill them, who believe that killing people “over there” is not going to happen “over here” or that supporting candidates from either side who will only give us more of the same things we have been enduring…. thanks to those people, nothing is going to change. 

In the end I have to repeat Dan’s question: “Why don’t we just buy the oil?”  Think of all the grief, the killing, destruction, hatred, bigotry, jobs, homes, businesses that would have been preserved.  Think of all the good that could have been done throughout our own country with 500 billion that has been squandered for war and to enable the destruction of our Republic. 

Then ask yourself, why we didn’t just buy the oil?

In Bed Together

When will we come to realize that the “heads” of terrorist entities and our elitist leaders are in bed together? An elitist cabal composed of people so rich we the people cannot even comprehend it, have been busily creating terrorists for years. And why is that? I submit that this collusion on the part of elitist world rulers is for one purpose, and that is to help bring chaos to the world in order to birth the New World Order.

There is a scientific theory that espouses, “out of chaos comes order.”

In certain experiments, “When you introduce disorder… the chaos that was present before disappears and there is order,” said Sebastian F. Brandt, a physics graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis. (LINK) But first, you must have chaos.

So, for order to be created in the fashion the elitists have planned, we the people must be thrown into chaos as an attempt to start over and create the desired order. According to the article linked above, this is represented by several pendulums, which are thrown out of sync:

The scientists found that the pendulums, when pushed by forces according to a regular rhythm, behaved chaotically and swung out of sync. Yet, when the researchers introduced disorder—applying forces at random intervals to each oscillator—they began to swing in synch. The “forces” were applied along the rods of the “pendulums” to make them swing. 

Can you see where this is going? The pendulums are swinging in sync. When certain forces are applied to the pendulums in order, they become out of sync, or chaotic. Certain forces are then applied in a disorderly fashion, to the chaotically swinging pendulums, and they start swinging in sync. The “out of chaos comes order” theory seems to be proven in the case of pendulums. What our leaders do not understand or care to understand, is that people are not pendulums.

If a person, or group of people are so intent on creating their own New World Order, and are so corrupt that they do not care in the least how many people get killed or maimed in the chaos phase of the experiment, you have what we are beginning to experience now as Americans, and earlier as third world countries.

Out of chaos comes the New World Order. Makes you kind of sick to your stomach, doesn’t it? Orderly forces are applied to create disorder or chaos, then a disordered sequence of pressures are applied to create the new order. This set of events is only logical if one realizes that the final order, or end result that is desired, is according to elitist designs that do not include the nicest of circumstances for you and me, but the best of circumstances for them.

No Real Choices

Leave a comment

As the country prepares to release a sigh of relief at the prospect of George W Bush finally leaving office, I think I will continue to hold my breath.  This has been, by almost all accounts the worst presidency in our history but few of us were willing to stand up and demand that he be removed from office.   By now, we have all realized that congress has neither the will nor the courage to impeach and then prosecute this entire administration.

So what did our laziness and inattention buy us?  As a nation we stand poised on the edge of losing our sovereignty to the North American Union.  Our own government is working actively to dismantle our Republic and replace it with a dictatorship, replete with internment camps for dissenters.  We have stood by while one law after another has been passed that directly infringed on our civil liberties and rights, and have been compliant accomplices in wars of aggression against other sovereign nations.

We have become a nation of cowards.  Even when we, as a nation, have been shown the lies and deceptions used to promote these wars we cowered in fear:  better to fight them “over there” than here.  The problem is that the people we are warring with never attacked us.  So just who is it that we are so fearful of in Iraq?  We don’t know.  The government either can’t or won’t identify who this enemy was in Iraq that made us attack them.  

We are threatened continually with another attack if we don’t allow the government to illegally spy on us, to detain us without charges, to rifle through our personal business and to compile dossiers on each of us as they prepare for martial law.  And, like the dutiful sheeple we are, many of us exclaim, “Well!  If you haven’t done anything wrong you shouldn’t mind if they do that”.  Its precisely because I haven’t done anything wrong that I do mind. 

I find it strange that the only place threats of attacks ever come from are from our own government.  Could it be that in some perverse way they are telling us that they will attack us if we don’t comply?  After all, these threats are always so vague and even when they do claim to thwart an attempted attack, we never really quite know who, where, how or when.  We’re only told that the attack was thwarted……..only no one seems to know anything about it but them!

I would like to think that the election of a new president from any quarter would bring relief and a restoration of our constitution and bill of rights.  It won’t.  We are given choices of whom to vote for, but only choices based on pre-selected candidates that will continue the destruction of our country.  Which should give you a clue as to why Ron Paul is misrepresented in the polls and why his name was crossed off the ballots in New York. 

In the end, we have no real choices.  No matter who is elected, that person will simply continue with the plans to merge us with Mexico and Canada, and life as we have known will change forever.  Not one of the candidates who will appear on the ballot will do one thing to restore our government to one governed by the people. 

In the end, the fact that we have no real choices is our own fault.  It was our apathy and laziness, our inattention to the monster that our government had become that allowed any of this to happen.  We have only ourselves to blame.
