Craig raises some interesting discussion points for the water cooler and the barbecue this weekend. Confidence in the government is at an all time low and the trust of the official narrative has all but disappeared among traditional Americans. Maybe it’s time to wonder out loud why the people in the ivory towers never seem to bear the brunt of policy driven by the Magic Dirt Theory and the petrodollar. If you’re not actively trying to influence your friends, coworkers and neighbors then you’re wrong. People are furious and they are open to solutions. Make use of that opportunity while you can. You may know it, but do they?
P.S. Commies still deserve helicopter rides.
The true patriotism, the only rational patriotism is loyalty to the nation all the time, loyalty to the government when it deserves it. – Mark Twain
In politics, stupidity is not a handicap. – Napoleon Bonaparte
Where do you get your information, and where do they get what they tell you? Do you ever think about that? It’s common these days to back up the current lie by referring to a previous lie that has been abandoned as being too obvious a lie. Consumers are too dumb, misinformed, to notice…or are in denial. Identity politics are not only about inclusion but also about exclusion: You have to be like the group or you’re rejected/disliked.
The first 9/11 happened on 9/11, 1973, in Chile. A CIA-backed coup overthrew Chile’s President Allende. America did it. Was that interfering or hacking? The world knows about America constantly overthrowing governments, and favorable regimes, colloquially referred to as ‘democracies’ here. Trying not to get bombed by the American exceptionalists gets you described as crazy and/or brutal. I’m constantly amazed by the ability of those in power to create stories trusted by those who can’t think critically. Appealing to emotions, when you have millions of functionally illiterate, normalcy bias ensnared, gadget distracted, disciples of the status quo, has been the ongoing game of the Deep State. Americans don’t want to think, because thinking is hard. With consumers confused, distracted, willfully ignorant, and easily manipulated, is it any wonder so many fall for things today they would have called insane a few years ago?
The majority of people know government lied to us about both the JFK assassination and 9/11 but you can’t say so publically. One position on 9/11 is that Bush or Cheney and Rumsfeld let it happen. They knew it was coming but did nothing to stop it. Norm Mineta testified Cheney was told every few minutes that a plane was approaching the Pentagon but he did not let an interceptor take it down. 9/11 was done to create the War on Terror. We will not have peace because we continue to accept the 9/11 lie. Since government and media are lying to us about 9/11, it means that they’re controlled by the people who carried out 9/11. Ray Charles could see, when looking at the Towers, they’re disintegrating from the top down, being demolished, pulverized and exploded, from the top down, while the base remains solid but with Building 7 they blow it up from the bottom, and you see the whole building come down intact. One truth of 9/11 is this: The North and South Towers had 47 central core steel columns and 236 perimeter columns for a total of 283. For the buildings to fall straight down at nearly free fall speed all 283 connections from the columns to each of the 110 floors had to be cut within a second of each other. Keeping in mind open air fires can’t reach half of the temperature required to melt steel, how do you explain (2x110x283) 62,260 connections in the two towers all being severed simultaneously by an office fire? So Towers 1, 2, and 7 were taken down by controlled demolitions; to do that you need keys to the buildings and the permission of management. Larry Silverstein and his adult children didn’t go to work that day after never missing a day. What are the odds?
We’ve we seen drills around ‘surprise’ events in the past. Just before the Boston Marathon bombing they had a terror drill. Just before 9/11 they had a terror drill of planes flying into the World Trade Center but we don’t hear about that. Normally when you see a drill being advertised it’s a forerunner to the real event. Our government is carrying out the agenda, regardless of election results and political affiliations, of a permanent, deeply rooted conglomeration of special interests that transcend political parties, ideologies, presidential terms, as well as domestic and international law. America’s deep state removed constitutional independence, and is an ongoing threat to global peace and stability. America’s use of unwarranted power and influence presents as regional wars, subsequent waves of refugees, socioeconomic exploitation and catastrophe within targeted states and across entire regions, as well as a general global disorder resulting from a tiny handful of special interests abusing and wasting the planet’s human and natural resources for its own petty, self-serving pursuits.
Remember your oath to protect against all enemies foreign and domestic? What if you’ve never noticed the domestic enemy? What if much of the ‘terror’ around the world is false? What if it is done by various factions of ‘our’ deep state in their power struggle? The PTB have lots of funding, as can easily be demonstrated in the ten trillion said to be missing from the five-sided fun house on the Potomac. If their overthrow of Ukraine’s government only cost five billion what might they be doing with the rest of that cash?
There’s no real American foreign policy. There’s only the sum of the different foreign policies desired by various more or less covert ‘deep state’ actors, agencies and individuals. The result is inevitably short-term, focuses on a quick fix approach unable to allow for complexity. American ‘diplomacy’ doesn’t exist. You don’t need diplomats to deliver demands, bribes, ultimatums and threats. You don’t need educated people nor do you need people with any understanding of the ‘other’. All you need is one arrogant bully and one interpreter: American diplomats don’t speak the local languages. We saw fascinating evidence of the death of the American diplomatic corps when 51 American ‘diplomats’ demanded that Obama bomb Syria. The rest of the world could just watch in amazement, sadness, and total disgust.
We haven’t been America for some time. We’re Soviet America. Consumers have no problem with that having been raised by parents educated in Soviet American schools. We saw the remains of America vanish with the passage of the Patriot Act. Now Amazon is burning books that Israel doesn’t like. Since when have we become a nation that is so afraid of debate we can no longer tolerate dissent? At her core America was founded by people who wrote the ‘hate speech’ of the day. If you’re one of those who believe its fine that your master is working to take control of the whole world remember though you feel you’re a well-cared for slave now, wait until your master is no longer master of them all.
“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, one by one… Truth, when discovered, comes upon most of us like an intruder, and meets the intruder’s welcome… Nations, like individuals, cannot become desperate gamblers with impunity. Punishment is sure to overtake them sooner or later.” Charles Mackay
America does what North Korea does hiding its problems under a cloud of secrecy. If the Empire is challenged over such actions, we’re expected, like the North Korean public, to automatically accept that America must be right and well-intentioned and have better values than the enemy it’s opposing. See the HRC ‘I didn’t mean to commit a felony‘ defense. America is right in thinking that most people around the world share its professed values of freedom, democracy and human rights but even with long experience it can’t understand on an official level that it’s taken at its word, and alienates people precisely because it acts contrary to those values in practice. From what we’ve seen of Trump, who promised to drain the swamp, this situation is only likely to become more extreme, and therefore the Empire will be more tempted to act against any reminder of its own errors.
It makes no sense for Muslims to hold Europeans and Americans responsible for the evil policies of ‘our’ governments. If you think about this, you can see why it’s suspicious that ‘Muslim terrorism’ acts only against innocents, who have no influence over government policy. If Muslim terrorists are so sophisticated that they can pull off 9/11, they know that the enemy isn’t average citizens but neocons known from their positions in the Bush and Obama regimes. Their responsibility for the years of American invasions, bombings, and destruction of millions of Muslim peoples is known. None of the neoconservatives have any protection. There’s never been a terrorist attack against any of them. The alleged Muslim terrorists are so careless with their own lives; they could easily take out Darth Cheney, who only has minimal protection. There have been no Muslim terror attacks on politicians and presstitutes who have eagerly supported decades of war against Muslims. America and Europe are full of Muslim refugees from Washington’s wars. Terrorist events are rare. In a real democracy with a real media and real opposition parties, these questions would be investigated and part of public debate, not dismissed as ‘conspiracy theory’.
‘Terrorist’ attacks seem to coincide with important events. Could there have been a genuine ISIS attack in Europe? Yes, but I suspect that most of them were Gladio-style false flags executed by the Empire’s special services. Islam and the Muslims who practice was never the enemy. The enemy was a relatively small sect of para-Islamic crazies which remained largely in the fringes of the Islamic world until it was given an immense boost first by Saudi Arabia and, later, by the CIA in Afghanistan. The question to ask, which raises some very uncomfortable possibilities is cui bono?
The Empire is working to impose a self-serving political order that suits its sociopolitical and economic interests at the cost of peace, stability and security for entire regions of the planet. Its presence in ‘occupied countries’ and the proxies it uses as ‘government’ serve Washington’s interests are unwanted by those people being governed. The costly, prolonged occupation of these countries is demonstrating tactical and strategic weakness, geopolitical ineptitude and exposing the dangerous shortsighted greed that drives American foreign policy at the cost of long-term, rational planning and application, fiscal responsibility and the safety of the American populace.
