I am not doom and gloom but tickle your fun kid! I started writing after 9/11 as to truth and reality! Sadly truth and reality today is Doom and Gloom


I was going through this mornings news, thinking again about conversations I had yesterday, and this morning going through past stories I wrote for back up, and I have to tell you before I get started that I am a very happy, serious, fun guy, who laughs all day. I really do have to laugh thinking about this fool, and me, laughing about this horrible situation and future Bush has happily created for us. He actually has the nerve to say we owe him thanks for taking our rights away, controlling us 100%, and destroying our America, while he emplaces his upon us. This guys lies in the face of reality and underhanded audacity just floors me as we watch truth and reality turn into the nightmare future that has been created for us and the world and all we can do is laugh because we are powerless to stop this from happening. I am stunned the Politicians on both sides of the aisle do not see what has been done, what is being done, and how this will all end up unless they are in on this too.

Anyway keep smiling and don't let this all get you down. We will survive and get through this. Just keep on keeping on, stay together, stay positive, and we will be the winners. With that said, I have to say that I had one heck of a conversation yesterday. If I hadn't said every bit of it myself numerous times it would be scare. Sadly it is just reality. I want you to read it though because it is plain fact and I refuse to believe that our children Politicians continue to be worthless and play their harmful games and not even mention what has been done to us and our America and what the ultimate goal is and what a nightmare for the average citizens of the world this will be in the end.

Now I want to give you highlights of something I was sent yesterday. I wrote a Document of fact/ Bush uncovered years ago highlighting the Russian Doctrine of Destruction Bush is following, The new order purposely being emplaced, and the terrible way this is all going to turn out. Since the MSM and the Politicians are complicit in this I have not been able to get through to anyone. I always say by the time the truth is written by someone who may make a difference it is already to lat to stop. This is the case here. Let me give you some highlights then please check out the links. It is too late to stop but we must continue to try and get the truth out.

This is fact and it even gets worse but here are the highlights of the planned collapse of America! There is no shortage of speculation about "why" our leaders are still adamantly planning for the destruction of Iran, in the face of overwhelming popular opposition, even though everyone except the neocons and their allies believes that America would not survive our own actions. An irrational attack is planned and apparently the decision has been chiseled in stone. It may be for Israel. It may be for oil. Maybe it is for world domination?

We are launching a nuclear world war to save us from ourselves. "We have found the enemy and he is us." - Pogo. We risk blowing the world apart, to avoid watching America slowly choke on its own excesses. I have been saying this for years and no one seems to care! The government has known for decades that America is on a countdown to self-destruction. Among the elite it is common knowledge that our "global economy" must one day collapse from its own dead weight. Bush has just sped the natural cycle of degradation every society goes through and he is dooming the Global economy. This is all part of our expected demise. The changing images of man
We talk about this all the time but The research revealed that there were a multitude of crises that were about to intersect in America's near future. Not the least of these converging catastrophes was a rapidly approaching breakdown of both American capitalism and democracy. The collapse was a natural result of globalism and monopoly capitalism. The basic greed that powers the system eroded the American political and economic structures, exposing the foundation of immorality and unfairness that amplifies the social unrest. The Stanford researchers clearly predicted that the American economy was destined to collapse from its own dead weight. The data also showed that that economic collapse was to be accompanied by disastrous social repercussions, such as rioting and upheaval, which would lead us into a "garrison state." As we all know this is well underway!

We have said this many times too. It is in Bush uncovered that illegal's are necessary to fuel Bush's new society. He is destroying our America in so many ways. NAFTA, CAFTA, the underway North American Union. we will be overwhelmed soon!
Instead of charging the people who are responsible for our situation, (such as men like David Rockefeller) for manipulating our economy and our democracy to maximize their profits, the multi-national corporations and their owners were exalted as the potential saviors of mankind. Rockefeller and the elite have consistently taken steps to dominate the world by controlling people through "humanitarian" projects which, in the end, turn out to be profit mechanisms.

The "green revolution" to spread corporate farming to the Third World has been the key to globalization's destabilizing of world labor markets, in order to create populations of "refugee workers," who are willing to go anywhere to find work for slave wages. This is the cause of the wave of illegal immigration into the US, from Mexico. This is part of the proof that there are powerful individuals who are using their economic power to undermine nations in a long-term scheme to gain control of nations and multiply their profits. This is not news but known fact but how to stop it?
Here David Rockefeller admits media collusion with his one world plans: "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 subjected to the light of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." Complicit media

I have written years ago in my Life's Cycles that it is time for the world to unite as one if we are to survive into the future but it will not happen. Too many Nations wand their sovereignty and that will make this all crash and burn resulting in total chaos and war.
Rockefeller writes on page 405 of his memoirs: Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it," Rockefeller's memoirs

According to Rockefeller himself (who freely admits his efforts to replace America with a "one world" order), he has been working for the greater good of man, all along. I found much of his theory seriously flawed as there is no way corporations are going to put the people first or Politicians will do what is right for them but he was right on with this and this too is documented in Bush uncovered and many of us have written many times.." They were searching for the best path to bring about a controlled de-construction of everything that "America" means and the re-construction of a new improved vision of America. They are midwifes to the delivery of the "New World Order," as they go about the dirty business of guiding society through that predicted period of "friendly fascism."

We all know this but again no one listens until a supposed genius talks about but when they do it is already too late to stop. The inequities and the unfairness of the corporate system are causing the breakdown of American capitalism and American democracy. The American catastrophe is causing the breakdown of the world economy for the same reason, the basic inability of monopoly capitalism to meet the basic needs demanded by the world's people.

Bush's appointed task is to bully America through this turbulent period of upheaval, with as little disruption of corporate activity as possible. Government has taken the words of this study to heart, preparing a manipulative transformation, to divert or pre-empt the coming collapse of our nation with a massive war today. This is also one of the primary reasons for the coming world war, to serve as a prelude to American martial law. Instead of calling out the troops after the insurrection has begun, they plan to call out the troops first. If the American military is to forcefully control the homeland, including their own relatives, then the troops must first be convinced that the Nation's survival depends upon their patriotic actions. This is why the world war against Iran has not started yet, because our National Guard must first be convinced that its duty is to put down the American rebellion which will surely accompany the bombing of Iran. The timing for their great takeover is crucial, if they want to move America past (through) the social unrest as quickly as possible.

We are seeing the planned collapse of our America and a purposeful creation of a new order that will not be controlled regardless of what anyone thinks as it is now out of our hands and beyond control. world war three will be the result of all this and it will not be avoided and no one will like the results. Somebody has to have a life sustaining planet to live on and it will not happen with another World war happens at this point of the planets life cycle.

Our America is gone. We are the enemy. Attacking Iran is a given and necessary to get this new world society going full swing. A one Government earth would work if the best interest of the world were the goal but it is not.
What is not taken into account is the fact that others will not give up their sovereignty willingly and the Global Forever war I talk about often will be a reality. Plus I believe it is beyond even this scenario because if a new life system on earth was the goal this would not be happening but degeneration would be allowed as a necessary course because in the end someone would have to live on this earth that will no longer be life sustaining. And it gets worse when you think of the up coming space war and the cataclysmic results of that.

i would agree with you- about the survival of america- if it wasn't for the whole global warming thing. our planet is not going to sustain life for us or other mammals forever and there doesn't seem to be much movement towards ending the status quo. our way of life has indeed ended- the sad and scary part is- our lives will be ending. i really can't laugh about that. there isn't a silver lining in this cloud this time.

Something different Jim:

God is always a magic word on the lips of political leaders. They can’t leave God in his place. They bring Him to the market place. It was as easy to con the ancient Athenians as it is for George W. Bush to con Americans today. God and public prayers work. Mention God and that He is on their side and people listen. People still fall for it.

When the dictator Pisistratus returned from exile to Athens in a golden chariot he was accompanied by an extremely tall woman dressed in full battle armor. He presented to citizens the imposing figure as the Goddess Athena herself, come to restore order and well-being to the strife-ridden city of Athens. People knelt down to the goddess and gave thanks for their salvation from the tumult surrounding them.

Reading in these stormy days Thomas Cahill’s beautiful book, Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, Why the Greeks Matter, I was struck by the analogies between the misty history of ancient Greece and contemporary America. That book led me then to other works on Greece and to collections of the great Greek plays that read extremely well today twenty-five centuries later.

It was the year 546 B.C. Athens had evolved from a monarchy to rule by the aristocracy. Pisistratus, the son of the aristocrat Hypocrates, had built a political power base in Athens as a populist. He first came to power illegally in 565 B.C. which calls to mind the dubious Presidential elections in the United States in the year 2000 A.D.

A born conspirator, Pisistratus first faked an attempt on his life, after which he convinced the Popular Assembly to grant him a powerful bodyguard. He used this super police force, a kind of militarized FBI, to conquer the Acropolis, the Capitol Hill of ancient Athens.

After the first term of his despotic rule, an alliance of rival parties forced the dictator into exile. But Pisistratus, crazy for power, soon began plotting his return. Then, to the surprise of the naïve Greeks a goddess escorted a mortal political leader back in power.

Roberto Calasso narrates in Le Nozze di Cadmo e Armonia how Pisistratus taught the beautiful country girl, Phye, to act like a goddess. Dressed in armor and mounted in the chariot at his side, she must have looked majestic. Proceeded by heralds announcing to the Athenians the good tidings that the goddess herself was conducting him back to the Acropolis, Pisistratus returned to power.

Historians concur that Athenians believed that the divinity had come to earth to install Pisistratus. Strangely, this old story of public gullibility rings familiar and contemporary: God was on the side of the dictator. God was stepping in the save Athens, its children, its faith, and its “way of life.”

Aristotle later wrote that, “this deception was the most ingenuous since the sophisticated Hellenic people had diverged from their barbarian forebears.” According to Herodotus, Athenian credulousness about the goddess was alien even to the childish ingenuity of the barbarians.

Yet, it was a deception that reveals a truth which otherwise could escape our notice. That truth is that the citizens of Athens not only believed in their gods but they accepted the possibility that one day the goddess Athena would enter their city in a chariot. Because they deserved the protection and special blessing of the gods.

Mythology? Nonsense? Well, no. God is always a magic word on the lips of political leaders. They can’t leave God in his place. They bring Him to the market place. It was as easy to con the ancient Athenians as it is for George W. Bush to con Americans today. God and public prayers work. Mention God and that He is on their side and people listen. People still fall for it. Our political leaders today use the same trick old Pisistratus used, two and a half millennia ago. Over and over and over.

Later, a more modern Aristotle treated the return of Pisistratus with the goddess at his side as mythological and allegorical, as much of earlier Greek history in fact was. Yet, if that deception really did happen, it seemed that it was the last appearance of the credulous world of the barbarians in which the dividing line between gods and mortals was still alive. In the ancient world the power of metamorphosis was such that a market girl could be venerated as the Goddess Athena.

Yet, public gullibility for the demagogue never dies.

Moreover, divine intervention went down just as well for the no less credulous members of the Popular Assembly, the Athenian Congress, as it did for the gullible Athenian people. They too fell for the absurdity of Athena in battle armor at the side of Pisistratus.
We should not be surprised. There are enough credulous people and an abundant supply of corrupt politicians to sweep into power the unscrupulous liars with God ever on their lips. In the 2500 years since “God’s intervention” in Athens, one would expect that such confusion between God and man, between the spiritual and the human, would have been overcome.

Ancient Athenians were a festive people. The plays of the great Athenian writers lay at the heart of their festivities. Greek playwrights and philosophers understood that a people so cocksure of themselves and their “way of life” were in constant need of warnings that there were other forces in life that they were shutting their eyes to but that could destroy their way of life.

And to be sure, the tragic flaw the Greeks saw in every man, the hamartia, brought down the leaders, one after the other. After reaching the heights of power, they fell, victims of their own failings. There is no more despondent figure than Sophocles’s blind King Oedipus. One day all-powerful, the next blinded by his own hubris, his insolence—another of those potent Greek words we have inherited, —Oedipus is led away into oblivion. The later comment of the Roman conquerors of Greece that ‘so passes worldly glory’ still holds water today.

Reading Cahill and Calasso, and the Greek playwrights themselves, one is struck by the forthrightness of writers of two and a half millennia ago in their refusal to be victims of “political correctness.” I like to imagine they detested euphemisms. Their role was to warn and admonish and accuse. They did not search for the equivalent of today’s appropriateness or moral clarity. Athenians did not accuse their writers of moral vacuity and lack of taste and sensitivity, as after September 11 in Bush’s America when it became inappropriate to warn of encroachments on civil liberties and of secret prisons and torture. Or, as after the dikes broke in New Orleans, when it was inappropriate to speak of the criminal negligence of pertinent authorities.

Euphemisms are fashionable in the political world. Modern America has perfected their use to a science. The media quickly fall in line and propagate them. A few examples of euphemistic New Speak suffice to make the point: In today’s jargon, military strikes against poor nations like Sudan is called humanitarian intervention (Here I do not have in mind the moral right or necessity of intervention in such cases; I am speaking only of the fashion for not calling things by their names.). Illegal war or state terrorism is called anti-terrorism, and the bloody suppression of the innocent is labeled counter-terrorism. Fanatical enthusiasm for war is courage. Objections to war are labeled cowardly and traitorous. Murder of women and children from supersonic bombers is collateral damage. Crimes against humanity are defense of our values, life style, and the future of our children.

The list can go on and on: Marchers for peace are terrorists and evildoers. Opposition to school prayers and to the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance is un-American. Stem cell research becomes abortion on demand. Lies are now called truths, the give and take of democracy, and of no real significance.

No wonder the widespread acquiescence to the whims of the Washington government in face of admonitions like, “You’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.” And no wonder the President’s words, “I’ve made up my mind,” can become reason and justification for entering the self-defensive war in Iraq.

The Greek playwright Euripides had no patience with euphemism. Nor did he know reticence in his criticism of power. His King Pentheus says to the great Greek god Dionysus, god of wine and wildness, representative of inspiration and darkness and madness and chaos: “You do not know the limits of your strength. You do not know what you do. You do not know who you are.”

After Dionysus drives the king mad and takes him under his spell, he tells his crazed victim that his mind was once unsound but now he is “thinking as sane men do.” But of course Pentheus must still pay for his earlier words: the worshipping followers of Dionysus rip him to pieces.

Their playwrights told the Greeks uncomfortable truths; they used political incorrect words: the people were responsible for their own ills. They were not special in the world of men. They were not above human truths. They too bore the human flaw. And they would have to pay for their hubris.

While Athenian playwrights satirized and admonished both citizens and leaders, their philosophers thought and tried to get to the core of things. Concerned with truth, their primary objective was to understand what the thing was that made the universe tick. Were things of the cosmos permanent or forever in change? Will everything that has been, be again? Was there a god or gods or a powerful mind behind it all? And what was man’s place in all this? It was a mystery. It is a mystery. The great mystery is that though the world makes sense, its sense eludes us. Sometimes we feel that thing hanging just out of our grasp. It is a hairsbreadth away. It is on the tip of our tongue but we cannot articulate it. That mysterious thing is the most beautiful thing of our lives. But we do not know what it is.

American democracy is frequently compared to that of ancient Athens. But the two models are only superficially similar. Despite its hideous slavery and a citizenship limited to twenty per cent of the city’s population, Athens is defined as the most participatory government in history. For the twenty percent who were citizens it was full democracy, e.g. rule by the people.

Democracy? We should wonder about the state of ours. Can one claim that the 45,000,000 American citizens living below the poverty level are represented by their government? Where is the truth in our democracy, the truth hidden deeply, mysteriously, behind the euphemistic gobbledygook? Today, instead of discussing important issues openly, nonsensical euphemisms are on the lips of leaders and media people and academics alike. Right-thinking, Blame America Firsters, wrongdoers, secularists, you’re with us or against us, exportation of democracy.

One wonders who invents euphemisms become lies. Do the leaders coin the cover-ups that the media then inculcate in the people? Or do the media and academics teach the untruths to the politicians?

Or is there perhaps a secret Euphemism Department, concealed underground someplace, staffed by perverted minds dedicated to re-inventing New Speak? Dedicated to the naive lie. Some experts explain that the tragedy of New Orleans was fate. That the ozone does not exist, that earth-warming is a myth, or if not fate then it was the fault of local officials that the dikes of New Orleans broke and not the denial of federal funds.
The truth is that the gap between rich and poor in ancient Greece was minimal in comparison to the economic abyss in the United States today. Between the fabulously wealthy and the 100,000 mostly Blacks who couldn’t afford to leave New Orleans in time, and who are only the tip of the iceberg of the poverty in the world’s richest country.
Thucydides wrote that men go to war out of honor, fear and interest. And wars always cause the degeneration of society. That has not changed despite the claims of the Neocons. More than degeneration! Confined to their own garden, convinced of their superiority, and refusing to meditate on the past and human affairs, the proud Athenians sunk into xenophobia and hubris—contempt for things not their own, their fear of otherness, and their own social insolence. Their state fell to successive waves of Spartans, Macedonians and Romans.

How familiar and modern it all rings.

A View of the Future Jim:

The Bush administration used the September 11 terrorist attack as an opportunity to implement a "shadow government," based on old plans prepared during the Cold War. More than 150 officials were initially evacuated by helicopter to different locations in mountainous regions of the eastern United States.

In late October the temporary arrangement was made permanent, officially establishing the new regime. Since then Bush has added hand picked people from top levels of the civil service who will carry out his commands unquestioningly. Legal documents have been drafted to give these officials the full powers of government in the event of a catastrophe.

The sinister and illegal "shadow government" consists entirely of executive branch officials. No members of the legislative and judicial branches of government are included in the secret plan. In television interviews Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, confirmed that neither he nor any other congressional leader had been consulted about the plan. When asked whether this constituted a secret government, he replied, "I don't know. I don't know what their role is, what their current authority is, because we haven't been informed."

This is a flagrant violation of the concept of "Separation of Powers" as embodied in the Constitution. In the event that this "shadow government" seizes power, it will function as a dictatorship exercising military and police powers, without any legislative oversight or judicial control.

Public Law 101-647, signed by daddy Bush in November 1990, allows boy George to declare a national emergency for almost any reason. If America suffers a major earthquake, an economic crisis, or a terrorist attack, FEMA is empowered to implement Executive Orders 10995 through 11005.

The power to issue Executive Orders allows the President of the United States to unilaterally create law without congressional oversight and approval.

Col. James Ammerman, 40 years an Army Chaplain, gave a talk at The Granada Forum in southern California on March 20, 1997. He outlined the details of Executive Orders 10995 through 11005 as follows:

Executive Order #10995: Authorizes seizure of all communication equipment in the United States.

Executive Order #10997: Authorizes seizure of all electric power companies, fuels, fuel sources, and minerals (public and private)

Executive Order #10998: Authorizes seizure of all food supplies, food resources, all farms and all farm lands (public and private).

Executive Order #10999: Authorizes seizure of all means of transportation- including personal cars, trucks, or any type of vehicle; Total control over all highways, roads, seaports, and sea ways.

Executive Order #11000: Authorizes forced conscription of all Americans for work duties under supervision of Federal agents. This section also authorizes the splitting up of family units if deemed necessary by the government agencies in charge.

Executive Order #11001: Authorizes seizure of all health, education, and welfare facilities and their administrations (public and private).

Executive Order #11002: Empowers the Post Master General to register all men, women, and children in the United States for government purposes.

Executive Order #11003: Authorizes seizure of all airports and all aircraft, public, commercial, and private.

Executive Order #11004: Authorizes seizure of all housing and finance authorities and permits government agents to establish forced relocation sites. The government can declare any area of its choosing as "unsafe" and force the entire area to be abandoned of all persons. Authorizes establishment of new "relocation" communities; building new housing with public funds.

Executive Order #11005: Authorizes seizure of all railroads, inland waterways, and storage facilities, both public and private.

Executive Order #13010 (New): This Executive order is entitled Critical Infrastructure Protection. It established a commission made up of members from Federal government departments and agencies, which will be granted dictatorial powers when an emergency is declared.

This is telling Jim:

By Richard Cook:

Strange events are taking place in the U.S.

By August 2007, a lot of very smart people were reading the tea leaves, convinced that the upper echelons of the U.S. government had their own hidden reasons for forecasting an event even more heinous than the attacks of September 11, 2001.

President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney, and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff had been hinting that another 9/11 could be coming.

Figures from the U.S. military had also projected a 9/11-type event. On April 23, 2006, for instance, the Washington Post published a statement by an unnamed Pentagon source that, “Another attack could create both a justification and an opportunity that is lacking today to retaliate against some known targets.”

9/11 was a turning point in history, and not just because it provided a pretext for the Bush administration to use off-the-shelf plans to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. The 9/11 Commission criticized the government for failing to do enough to act on danger signs that attacks may have been afoot. But a movement has formed which argues that the reality was worse—that 9/11 was an inside job staged to further the geopolitical ambitions of an elite seeking to use U.S. military power to advance its own imperialistic agenda.

What is indisputable is that from the 2000 presidential election through the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath, what New York Times columnist Paul Krugman termed a “revolutionary power” took control of the U.S. government.

Krugman’s statement, contained in the introduction to his 2005 book The Great Unraveling, has not been taken seriously enough. George W. Bush had lost the popular vote to Al Gore but was named to office by a Supreme Court that rubber-stamped what Greg Palast and others have proven was an extended process of electoral fraud in Florida. The subsequent actions and policies of the Bush/Cheney administration have been in accord with its dubious beginnings.

From the emergence of the Neocons as an ideological power base dominant over U.S. foreign policy, to destruction wreaked on the Bill of Rights by illegal surveillance of citizens, to the senseless creation of the bureaucratically monstrous Department of Homeland Security and passage of the Patriot Acts, to the initiation of “wars of choice” leading to the devastation of two nations and the killing or displacement of perhaps a million Middle Eastern non-combatants, to violation of international treaties and conventions against wars of aggression and torture of prisoners, to presiding over an economy ruined by the continued export of manufacturing jobs and the creation and deflation of the housing bubble, to the wrecking of the federal budget by over a trillion dollars of wartime expenditure, to the abandonment of the city of New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina, to tax cuts for the most wealthy while the income of the middle class has drastically eroded, and to threats to start another war, this time against Iran, based on deceptions similar to those which preceded the Iraq invasion, the Bush/Cheney administration has brought the U.S. to the brink of catastrophe.

What is now being asked is whether there was a plan that was to take place in September-October 2007 whereby the rest of the job would have been done. Speculation was that a nuclear device was to have been detonated in a U.S. city, perhaps one of the six attached to cruise missiles that were “inadvertently” carried by the Air Force B-52 bomber that flew from South Dakota to Louisiana just before Labor Day.

Check this link from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette for the official explanation of the incident:
http://www2.arkansasonline.com/news/2007/oct/19/air-force-punishes-70-accidental-nuclear-weapons-f/.

According to the Air Force’s report, the missiles were being mothballed due to “a treaty,” but ground personnel at Minot Air Force Base “grabbed the wrong ones” and loaded missiles with nuclear warheads by mistake.

Some have argued that these nukes were secretly bound for Iran to prepare for a nuclear attack on that country. But would such a Keystone Cops routine have been necessary to prepare for military action as a contingency to implement a possible decision coming from the highest political levels?

Suppose, on the other hand, that one of the nukes was targeted for a false-flag domestic attack, perhaps a city like Portland, Oregon, where military exercises simulating a major terrorist incident had been scheduled and where residents actually were warning each other to leave town.

Was the attack to trigger an economic collapse, leading as a side-effect to a payoff of billions of dollars for the placers of the “bin Laden bets” that were reportedly made in the financial markets anticipating a fifty percent decline in stock prices? Of course such an attack would be blamed on foreign terrorists. The trail of the explosion would be found to lead to Iran, resulting in war against that nation. Would the Constitution then have been suspended and martial law declared? Would citizens have been rounded up and herded into prison camps?

Such a scenario seems unfathomable, horrendous, even incredible. But it still may have been in character for a regime whose actions have led the world to view the U.S. as the greatest existing threat to peace. Rumors about such possible events have been churning on the internet for months.

But the rumors have not been confined to “conspiracy theorists.” Regarding President Bush’s commitment to the sanctity of constitutional processes, Congressman John Olver expressed the prevailing view in government circles when he told twenty of his constituents at a private meeting in Massachusetts on July 5, 2007, that he could not support a movement to impeach Bush. According to an attendee, the reason the Congressman gave was that, “The President would declare a national emergency, institute martial law, and suspend the 2008 elections.”

Therefore we might ask if it is true, as some sources have alleged, that the reason these events have not taken place was that there was a revolt by the U.S. military, which refused to carry out the false-flag attack that may have been intended?

What then has happened differently which indicates that events may have altered or postponed such a sinister denouement to the nightmare of the last seven years?

What has happened appears to be that the U.S. establishment has decided to move to “Plan B.” This may be defined as a decision that the sway of the Bush/Cheney regime must end and that some semblance of normality should be restored, at least in appearance, by making Hillary Clinton the next President.

Of course part and parcel of any Hillary Clinton presidency would be the presence and participation of her husband, former President Bill Clinton. We may rightly speak of “the Clintons” as a unit in this context.

The signs that Hillary Clinton is the President-designee have been appearing in droves. These include her rise in the polls, especially in Iowa, the emergence of an anti-Bush surge in the mega-media, especially on MSNBC, and the appointment of Democrats with ties to the Clintons at the Defense and Treasury Departments. Other signs include the emergence of a campaign by certain well-connected websites to keep tabs on pro-Neocon news commentators and offensives being launched against some particularly obnoxious right-wing media figures such as Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh.

The way Hillary Clinton is being portrayed in the mega-media is of decisive importance, because media-owning conglomerates such as GE, Viacom, and Disney serve the interests of the establishment, not the public. Nothing makes it to the airwaves without the approval of the financial interests which control these giants. Also decisive was the appearance of Hillary and Bill on the cover of the October 6 edition of The Economist, long the keystone publication of the Anglo-American international financial empire.

The Washington Post, another establishment house organ, has noted that Hillary herself is couching her election in terms of “when, not if.” The theme she is projecting is that of an anointed insider calling for “national unity.” For this she is being duly attacked by her competitors, most notably John Edwards.

The best example of how the mega-media is telegraphing establishment intent was Chris Mathews’ lead story on Hardball on Monday night, November 5, which displayed MSNBC’s “Power Rankings” for presidential candidates. The segment began with an adulatory profile of Hillary’s campaign. Mathews then set a record for premature declaration of victory by predicting her as “the most likely winner of the Democratic nomination and presidential election” a full year before the election is even to take place.

Mathews repeated his judgment several times in what was obviously rehearsed language, even as the members of his three-person panel of commentators were trying in vain to raise objections, including the view that Hillary might not even win the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary. Mathews repeatedly overrode his own experts with his insistence that Hillary was the MSMBC pick.

Oh yes, we will have the formality of a presidential election. Doubtless some fur will fly, because Hillary will always be the Clinton the right-wing most loves to hate. So we won’t see a coronation.

It is certain, however, that the current regime will exact a price for accepting at least temporary defeat. So far the price seems to be agreement by Hillary Clinton that the conquest of Iraq is a fait accompli, that the building of the Baghdad supersize embassy will continue, that permanent military bases in Iraq will be maintained a lá Korea, and that the option of an attack on Iran will remain “on the table.”

She has not raised her voice against any of this. The vehicle by which Clinton signed on to a possible attack on Iran was her vote in favor of the Senate resolution naming the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist sponsor. Perhaps there is also an understanding between the Clintons and the Bush/Cheney camp that the latter will not be prosecuted for crimes committed in office.

No matter who becomes president in 2008, that person will be left with a nation in disarray. This includes a foreign policy that has been sacrificed to militaristic interests, the rise of a militant Russia now allied with China through the Shanghai Cooperative Organization, and a Latin America in open revolt against U.S. domination. Even maintaining a post-Bush foreign policy will be a challenge, given Condoleezza Rice’s legacy of a State Department whose morale is in shreds due to a vicious Neocon takeover of the foreign service that will persist for a generation or more.

Meanwhile, the U.S. economy is a wreck, with out-of-control debt, the housing collapse in full flower, continued erosion of manufacturing jobs, a sinking dollar, a crumbling physical infrastructure, soaring oil and food prices, out-of-control illegal immigration, and hordes of well-heeled foreigners buying U.S. assets with rapidly depreciating dollars.

The economy is in much worse shape today than when Bill Clinton took over from George H. W. Bush in 1992. It will be a miracle if the next president is able to keep the U.S. from sinking into a depression. The only qualification to this assessment lies with the large companies heavily invested in the growing Chinese economy—GM, GE, IBM, etc. But a majority of the stock of these and other corporations is owned by financial institutions, while the trickle-down effect of dividends will provide only a fraction of the purchasing power needed to keep the U.S. economy afloat.

While the views of the American public still seem to register to a slight degree, the Democrats have failed to respond to their restoration by the electorate to power in Congress by ending the Iraq War. But by their votes in 2006 and by consistently giving George W. Bush such low ratings in the polls, Americans have delivered a message. So have the many internet sites covering the real news of the war and the economy.

As well have the two maverick presidential candidates, Ron Paul the Republican and Dennis Kucinich the Democrat, who have been saying things not heard in the supine world of American politics for a long time. Things like getting rid of the inept handling of credit by the Federal Reserve and stopping the war in Iraq by exiting right now, without any more lies or excuses.

But it is by no means certain that there is much immediate hope of salvaging the nation from the current debacle. The interests of millions of Americans have been severely damaged by the financial and political malfeasance that has gone on for so long. Abroad, the deaths or ruin of large numbers of people in the Middle East must be accounted for. That region is now less stable than ever, as the situation in Pakistan shows. A negotiated two-state settlement between Israel and the Palestinians seems a distant dream. Finally, sane multilateral systems for sharing of the world’s resources among nations or dealing with global warming are nowhere in sight. And a nuclear holocaust involving the U.S. vs. Russia and possibly China is a growing danger.

Further, the U.S. economy can’t simply be “fixed.” It is too far gone for that. The elite began their takedown of the economy during the 1970s and show no signs of being able to reverse course. It started with the removal of the gold-peg to the dollar in 1971 and continued with the explosion of U.S. currency on the international scene due to the petrodollar, soaring trade and fiscal deficits, action to permanently mortgage us to military-backed dependence on imported Middle Eastern oil, a permanent tilt in favor of Israel vs. the Islamic world, and, finally, the galloping 1970s inflation.

These events led to the Fed-induced crash of 1979-83 which left us with today’s travesty of a “service” economy. Now in 2007 the Fed is trying to engineer a “soft landing” of an economy trapped in unsustainable debt and collapsing bubbles, at least until the 2008 election. But everyone knows a crash is coming, particularly as China and other nations dump the plummeting dollar as their reserve currency.

So what are the Clintons and their government-in-waiting planning? You would think they had something in mind. But maybe not. During the 1990s, Bill Clinton acted in full accord with the globalists’ agenda by continuing with the Reagan/Bush I privatization of the economy, with downsizing of government, and with promotion of the dot.com bubble that ended with the 2000 market crash. Unfortunately, it will not be as simple to engineer a repeat performance of even the ephemeral prosperity of the 1990s when what is lacking today is a real economic driver.

The grievous condition of the U.S. is reflected in an epidemic of mental and emotional illness and a rising violent crime rate. It is reflected in a USA Today poll, where 72 percent of Americans say the nation is moving in the wrong direction (74 percent in a Washington Post/ABC News poll). And who knows what disasters global warming has in store?

To face all this will require a decisive reorientation of U.S. governance. There is little in the history of the Clintons, their opportunistic style, and their passivity to the financier elite that justifies this much optimism. The financial controllers today exert more power over the U.S. economy and the nation’s politics than at any time in history. They are not giving up this power. In fact, Hillary is their “safest” choice among the Democrats in maintaining control.

Perhaps we may want to indulge in a sigh of relief at how much worse things could have been—or may still be—if Bush/Cheney unleash even more disasters. But stay tuned. The next four years are likely to be decisive—particularly because the plan to elevate Hillary Clinton may be a trap by which she is left holding the bag for an economic collapse that would make it much easier than at present for the Neocon storm troopers to rush back in.

What is absolutely certain is that the people of the world do not want war, regardless of their religion, race, or nationality. The people of the world want economic fairness. The people of the world want to live by honest labor, not bank credit. And the people of the world want an environment that is clean and safe for future generations. The only people who do not appear to want these things have been those who are currently in charge of the U.S. government.

The question now is what are the American people willing to do to assure that what is truly in the best interests of the nation will prevail? Will they continue to be manipulated by the fear which has been the basis of the Bush/Cheney mode of governance? Will they continue to act as obedient puppets as it becomes harder and harder to earn a living and raise a family in an economy throttled by debt and a declining standard of living? Will they simply vote for whom they are told to support by the media and the pollsters? Or will some decide that enough is enough and resolve to take America back in 2008?

But even if they do, can they succeed?

While Hillary Clinton is likely the designated Democratic nominee, Rudy Giuliani leads the polls for the Republicans. Giuliani, with his own group of Neocon advisers and his militant outbursts promising more war, is the ideological godson of Bush/Cheney.

Whoever is pulling the strings behind the scenes, it is likely obvious to them that to allow a character like Giuliani to step in while so many raw nerves are exposed among the American populace could lead to a premature explosion. Especially since Giuliani spent most of his adult life as a prosecutor putting people in jail. It’s hardly a time in the nation’s life when what is needed as head of state is an expert at slamming people into detention.

So what if Giuliani actually threatens to defeat Hillary while the establishment has decided to support her, perhaps just to buy time?

The establishment is taking precautions. It seems to be doing so by starting to promote a plan that could see Ron Paul running as a third-party candidate. You can see this unfolding, for instance, in his favorable treatment on CNN’s “Situation Room.” And could Dr. Paul really have begun suddenly to raise enormous amounts of campaign cash without someone in the establishment giving a green light?

Ron Paul as a candidate would obviously generate enormous excitement. But he could end up playing the same role as Ross Perot in the 1992 election, where Perot allowed disgruntled voters to let off steam while drawing enough votes to allow Bill Clinton to defeat George H.W. Bush.

One way or the other, the fix is on.

Finally, we should note that the “revolutionary power” Paul Krugman refers to is not just the Bush/Cheney/Neocon regime. They are only the most visible recent manifestation.

The true “revolutionary power” is much less visible but may reasonably be identified with the higher echelons of the “financier elite” and “establishment” referred to throughout this article. The underlying agenda of this group seems to be to destroy the U.S. as the world’s greatest industrial democracy, turn it into a province of a globalist system under their control, and use its land and population as muscle for world monetary and military dominance.

Can anything be done? Of course. The underlying problem is that the power and wealth acquired by the U.S. after World War II has eroded—has perhaps been squandered—as the rest of the world has grown up. Certainly, if the right people were in charge the U.S. could accept the inevitable, rebuild its failed domestic economy on democratic principles, and assume its rightful place as one of several major world powers, with the responsibility this would entail. Instead, we have been trying to hold onto what has slipped away by a continued resort to financial aggression combined with force of arms, rather than altruistic action based on enlightened ideals.

It’s a failed mission. What has happened to America in the last decade is turning into the greatest tragedy of modern history.

And what can ordinary people do while all this is unfolding? The best advice seems to be not to try to hoard paper assets, which the elite are able easily to manipulate or devalue. It’s to get out of debt, hone our manual skills, invest in a small business, grow our own food, stay positive, help others, work hard, eschew the consumption lifestyle, pray and meditate, be sober, and learn to think for ourselves. We might try to work within the political system if we can and want to, but should not count on easy successes, because, as the man said, “It’s a hard rain’s gonna fall.”

We do agree! I included the life sustaining ability of the planet in the story. It is wrose than even Al Gore realizes. I wrote on it years ago. It is on my main page as Life Cycles of man and the Planet and the dire consequences of going against them and we are.
I updated it but It is in many stories and saved on my computer but I do not know how to fix my main page. Oh well!
None of this is funny but it is out of our control. You have to keep your sense of humor and laugh! life will not be as we want it but we will be alright Hon we are survivalists! Take care!

Very good! Life always repeats itself. Every society thinks it is unique but they all go through the same cycle. We are at the end of ours.
You are right about God. He is being invoked now as you know to allow this chief idiot to create division and follow his society destroying new order mis-agenda. The same is being done by the so called Islamists and all peace loving society will be caught betwixt them.

A View of the Future Jim:

The Bush administration used the September 11 terrorist attack as an opportunity to implement a "shadow government," based on old plans prepared during the Cold War. More than 150 officials were initially evacuated by helicopter to different locations in mountainous regions of the eastern United States.

In late October the temporary arrangement was made permanent, officially establishing the new regime. Since then Bush has added hand picked people from top levels of the civil service who will carry out his commands unquestioningly. Legal documents have been drafted to give these officials the full powers of government in the event of a catastrophe.

The sinister and illegal "shadow government" consists entirely of executive branch officials. No members of the legislative and judicial branches of government are included in the secret plan. In television interviews Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, confirmed that neither he nor any other congressional leader had been consulted about the plan. When asked whether this constituted a secret government, he replied, "I don't know. I don't know what their role is, what their current authority is, because we haven't been informed."

This is a flagrant violation of the concept of "Separation of Powers" as embodied in the Constitution. In the event that this "shadow government" seizes power, it will function as a dictatorship exercising military and police powers, without any legislative oversight or judicial control.

Public Law 101-647, signed by daddy Bush in November 1990, allows boy George to declare a national emergency for almost any reason. If America suffers a major earthquake, an economic crisis, or a terrorist attack, FEMA is empowered to implement Executive Orders 10995 through 11005.

The power to issue Executive Orders allows the President of the United States to unilaterally create law without congressional oversight and approval.

Col. James Ammerman, 40 years an Army Chaplain, gave a talk at The Granada Forum in southern California on March 20, 1997. He outlined the details of Executive Orders 10995 through 11005 as follows:

Executive Order #10995: Authorizes seizure of all communication equipment in the United States.

Executive Order #10997: Authorizes seizure of all electric power companies, fuels, fuel sources, and minerals (public and private)

Executive Order #10998: Authorizes seizure of all food supplies, food resources, all farms and all farm lands (public and private).

Executive Order #10999: Authorizes seizure of all means of transportation- including personal cars, trucks, or any type of vehicle; Total control over all highways, roads, seaports, and sea ways.

Executive Order #11000: Authorizes forced conscription of all Americans for work duties under supervision of Federal agents. This section also authorizes the splitting up of family units if deemed necessary by the government agencies in charge.

Executive Order #11001: Authorizes seizure of all health, education, and welfare facilities and their administrations (public and private).

Executive Order #11002: Empowers the Post Master General to register all men, women, and children in the United States for government purposes.

Executive Order #11003: Authorizes seizure of all airports and all aircraft, public, commercial, and private.

Executive Order #11004: Authorizes seizure of all housing and finance authorities and permits government agents to establish forced relocation sites. The government can declare any area of its choosing as "unsafe" and force the entire area to be abandoned of all persons. Authorizes establishment of new "relocation" communities; building new housing with public funds.

Executive Order #11005: Authorizes seizure of all railroads, inland waterways, and storage facilities, both public and private.

Executive Order #13010 (New): This Executive order is entitled Critical Infrastructure Protection. It established a commission made up of members from Federal government departments and agencies, which will be granted dictatorial powers when an emergency is declared.

Those signs of the future really blow me away because we watch it all happen but are powerless to stop it. Even the Democrats are powerles because 9/11 which was allowed to happen gave Bush the impetus to steal all the power he needed to overthrow our America and emplace his And as I have been saying for years now we will not stop any of this but will keep trying and can only keep adapting.
As I keep saying I don't know where you gwet all this stuff but keep it up and keep it coming. Take care!

You said: Such a scenario seems unfathomable, horrendous, even incredible. But it still may have been in character for a regime whose actions have led the world to view the U.S. as the greatest existing threat to peace. Rumors about such possible events have been churning on the internet for months.
I don't know what but I balieve something horrendous will be allowed to happen in order to justify keeping this new order mess moving forward.
you may be right that Hillary may be seen as a necessary change but she will keep this mes going and a change to her will only be windpw dressing to appease dissenters.
I have no idea what is going to happen but something horrific will and this entire mess that I call Bush's Forever War will get underway and all bets are off.
As I keep saying and Betmo pointed out the planet is already in trouble and if this happens and it will the planet will not be able to sustain life as we know it.
Just remember, this will ultimately be a space war and whoever controls space will control the future and the world. Satellites control everything. Without them averything is dead in the water. It is no longer just about oil as everyone thinks Take care and keep it coming!
