"Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely." (Lord Acton 1887)
Nowhere in the history of man has the tendency of government to seize power been more prevalent than when that government, by whatever excuse or subterfuge, attempts to bamboozle the public with promises that they shall be "protected" by government when they yield their hard‑won individual, and especially, their God‑given rights, to that government. This may well be the very biggest of the 'big lies' fed to the people in all times and under all circumstances.
In WW II, though neither Germany or Japan had any means whatsoever to bombard America, our government instigated massive blackouts, requiring coastal areas, at least on the West Coast, to turn off all exterior lights, cover doors and windows with blackout curtains, and refrain from displaying any lights at night. Cars were forced to be equipped with headlight covers with tiny slits in them to reduce light output to a small fraction of normal. Meanwhile, radio stations continued to broadcast, allowing any enemy vessel or aircraft, if there had been one, through simple triangulation of signals to pinpoint their exact location, even on the darkest of nights. But our sheeple felt "safe" because of this unnecessary intrusion by government; imposing and enforcing laws that did nothing whatsoever to protect us.
One of the most unconstitutional acts in American history took place when then Governor of CA Culbert Olson, and CA Attorney General Earl Warren got their heads together, then went to see their old Socialist/Communist buddy, King Franklin of Delano. By royal decree, FDR ordered some 110,000 Japanese living on the West Coast, nearly two‑thirds of them American citizens by birth or naturalization, to be rounded up without any proof whatsoever that they were, in any way, supporting the Japanese Government, and tossed into concentration camps to rot for the duration of the war.
In addition to tossing them into harsh, primitive, prison‑like structures, the government took their homes, businesses, cars and other property and disposed of it; leaving these Americans financially destitute following the war. No warrants, no charges, no "day in court" for them. They were deemed to be possible enemies of the state because certain, powerful politicians said they were.
The sheeple of California twice elected Earl Warren as governor of the state; a reward for "protecting" them from the evils of the Japanese. Towards the end of his second term as governor, Warren was again rewarded for his total disregard and violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights of this Republic by another socialist, also hand‑picked by federal agents. Pseudo‑Republican Dwight "Operation Keelhaul" Eisenhower, President of the United States, a man who had never voted Republican in his life until they drafted him, anointed Warren as Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court where he could continue to ignore the Constitution and Bill of Rights; working to destroy the Republic at an accelerated pace through "creative" interpretations that had no basis in the original wording and intent of that document.
Warren made it clear that under "his" court, the Constitution and Bill of Rights would be anything and everything they wished it to be; not what was written and intended. From the Warren Court came school bussing, "separation of church and state," racial and gender‑preference hiring called "affirmative action," and a further, continuous stream of creative and totally unconstitutional rulings based on the socialist idea of what they would like for the Constitution to stand for.
But, our government didn't stop with the Japanese. For all practical purposes, Roosevelt suspended the Constitution and Bill of Rights, if he ever paid any attention to them in the first place, forming secret operations that not only targeted the enemy but also Americans who might, for some reason, "know too much." Among the government's lesser‑known operations was that of St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington DC. If Wild Bill Donovan, FDR's old Wall Street Lawyer/college chum and founder of the OSS/CIA, or someone else high up in the echelons of government decided you knew too much, you could simply "vanish" into St. Elizabeth's under the guise of being mentally ill or otherwise dangerous to yourself and/or others. Again, no hearings, no day in court, no nothing. To this day, I doubt if anyone knows how many Americans simply vanished with a little help from our government and possibly, were never seen or heard of again.
If the government could and did do these things sixty and more years ago and got away with it, what can and are they doing today under our unconstitutional, undeclared wars on drugs, terrorism and the civil rights of the people; especially our Second Amendment Rights?
QUERY: Has anyone ever discovered the word "but" following the absolute statement of the Second Amendment that "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Where does the Second Amendment state that government may infringe upon our rights because of this or that supposed reason? The Second Amendment expresses an absolute mandate, period, end of discussion!
The infamous Clinton body count not withstanding, how many citizens have simply vanished, suddenly died of "natural" causes, or suffered an "accident" that silenced them permanently; conveniently protecting unconstitutional activities of our government from the light of day?
How many honest citizens; especially those who dare to question the unconstitutional and criminal acts of government, have been or are being framed, their faces printed on federal "Wanted" posters, and declared enemies of the state, then hunted like animals; often to be shot dead; murdered under color of authority because "dead men tell no tales?" How many of these are victims of the ATF and it’s Gestapo‑like, jack‑booted‑thug tactics?
Does anyone with an IQ above that of a rotten fence post really believe that government at virtually any level, is not capable of manufacturing or planting evidence or that government officials and law enforcement officers will not lie under oath, apply blackmail, and threaten death to those who do not "play ball," to obtain desired convictions of innocent people that it is in the best interest of government to silence or put away?
How many citizens have been or will be branded as "white separatist" (ever hear of a "black separatist??”), "religious cult member," "militia member" (Do you understand that the Citizens ARE the Constitutional militia?), "right wing extremist" "gun nut," or other catch phrase of the ultra‑left, used to vilify their enemies by the socialist‑controlled government, hell‑bent on it’s agenda to totally destroy this Republic and move us into the UN‑decreed one‑world police state?
Even more important, where are we heading with Bush's establishment of his own Homeland Gestapo, which we are promised, will "protect" us while violating our Constitutional Rights?
How many more Constitutional Rights will the government grab using people like Tom Ridge, Ted Kennedy, McCain, Fienstein, and others who have already established themselves as having no regard for the Constitution and Bill of Rights whatsoever when it comes to his version of "law enforcement?”
How much protection is anyone giving our Texas people from the flood of immigrants, Texas could stop the immigrants from coming into our state if the people in government cared anything about our native people; both Mexicans and White.
How much "protection" have we with a so‑called "Department of Justice" that is so corrupt and so totally divorced from performing it’s sworn duty to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States that it consistently ignores and violates the spirit and the letter of the laws set down by that very document it is supposed to protect and defend?
Across America, police are shooting unarmed citizens, then defending the practice, telling us that they "thought" the deceased "might" have been reaching for a gun, or "might" have had a weapon, or that they "felt threatened?" How many murders under authority of the badge are our people willing to accept? Does no one recognize anymore that it is the job of a judge and jury to convict before we carry out a sentence upon those convicted of a crime? And yet the legislatures sit there on their back side and wring their hands and say why do people not love the police, highway patrol and etc., any more. It is because they are running ruff shod over people, and nothing is being done to stop them. They watch the television and think they are free to drag people out of their cars, burst into their homes or businesses without a warrant.
But the folks in the legislatures care not for the people, or what is happening to them; this is obvious because they do nothing to protect them. A student is expelled from school, of all things for having a butter knife in the back of his pick up; now this is stupidity at an astronomical degree. A little 6 year old child is being prosecuted for pointing his finger at some other children and saying bang, bang, you are dead. Can anyone be more silly and complete ignorant than this?
Even here in Texas this is happening, our people are being killed, their money, property and goods being stolen by supposed to be law enforcement officers who have gone complete power mad. And yet our legislatures that are supposed to protect us, because that is what they were elected to do, are so damn scared of the federal government that they sit back and do nothing to protect our people
In virtually every state, the government, under the color of authority and the excuse of environmentalism, has been seizing the lands and water of citizens, violating their civil and property rights without due process; issuing decrees that are law, without legislative process, and stomping on our Constitutional Rights with a vengeance while the tame press and timid, local law enforcement look the other way.
Using highly creative and totally false interpretations of the Constitution, relating to religion, imposed as the result of the socialist/Communist need to abolish everything that is honest, moral, and decent, the government wages a continuous war against Christians and their churches while giving the nod of approval to every abhorrent and totally deviant form of lifestyle ever dreamed up by the most depraved among us; all in the supposed interest of "diversity."
The federal government and unconstitutional firearms law has mutated into over 20,000 unconstitutional gun laws; none of which have led to any demonstrable reduction of criminal activity, but all of which, in one way or another, have removed or severely infringed on the God‑given rights of honest citizens to defend themselves, their families and their property; not only from the ravages of street criminals, but from the biggest criminals of all; those hiding within our government at all levels.
The legislatures of Texas have sit back and watched Gordon Kohl be assassinated by government agents in Arkansas. They have sit back and watched the government assassinate almost 100 people at Waco, Texas completely unnecessarily and did nothing. They have watched the bombing of the Atlanta Olympic by federal agents, and still our Texas legislatures do nothing to protect our people. They watched the first WTC bombing which was proven in testimony, and was on the Internet for a long time, that the FBI furnished the truck, the bomb making materials, a person who was an expert in explosives to build the bomb; filmed the entire thing on video from when the truck left its point of origin to its destination under the WTC building; and even the explosion itself. And yet our Texas legislature goes on its way unconcerned, and does nothing to prevent such a thing happening in Texas.
It would appear that the FBI offices on the 23rd floor of the North Tower were bombed to prevent agents from removing grand jury evidence stored there following the jet crash bombings. Evidence for this was given on the CBS news program 60 Minutes, although CBS seems unaware of its implications.
"Steve," from Main, who recorded the broadcast, has given me, over the phone and into my tape recorder, his recording of a segment of the CBS interview. Here is my careful transcription (lots of "rewind" and "play" button work) of that recording.
Steve's intro: This is a segment of the 60 minutes report, mid‑October. They're interviewing the Chief of Security for the World Center Towers. The 60 Minutes reporter is doing the interview of George Tabeek [phonetic spelling of audio, could be "Tabeak," etc.] They are talking about him and a fire fighter named Andy Desparino.
(Steve starts his vhs recording with his phone held to the speaker):
Reporter: In another part of the tower George Tabeek got a call that three Port Authority workers were trapped in command center on the 22nd floor.
Tabeek (fuzzy sound‑‑ as if dubbed in from an edited‑for broadcast phone interview): I said, "Stay calm, I'll be up there." I went to the battalion chief; he assigned a lieutenant; it's all I know is his first name, his first name was Andy ...
Reporter (clear sound‑‑ not phone interview): Andy Desparino of Engine Company One
Tabeek: And worked our way all the way up to the twenty‑second floor
Reporter (fuzzy ‑‑ phone interview clip again): Are people going down?
Tabeek: People were coming down. I was telling them, "Please be calm" walk to the left
Reporter (clear ‑‑ with jet impact sound in background during first sentence): What George Tabeek didn't know was that a second jet had just struck tower seven (sic) And when they reached the twenty‑second floor of Tower One Desperino and his men tunneled through the debris and opened up a path for those trapped inside. Helen Reese, meanwhile, was at another Port Authority Command Center talking to those unable to get down from the upper floors...(end of excerpt)
Clearly a bomb went off 50 floors below where the first plane hit North Tower, on the 23rd floor. This planted bomb collapsed the ceiling of the 22nd floor. No records would be saved from the FBI offices.
The hijackers, never suspecting a suicide mission, were "stung," by Mossad infiltrators posing as leaders with orders from bin Ladin; who gave them the right passwords and instructions setting the hijacking in motion, but then, when the hijacking was underway took remote control of the planes. making turning them into cruise missiles. I am convinced that no one was knowingly on a WTC suicide mission. The planes were all taken over by remote control after highjackings were begun. And it was not the first time that a passenger jet was crashed by remote sabotage.
On September 11, 2001, the 28th anniversary of the CIA‑directed military coup d'etat in Chile, terrorists (but not Arab terrorists) hijacked four planes and crashed two of them into the World Trade Center towers, causing fires within. According to the official story (pre‑written and rushed into print in the mainstream media immediately after the events, together with the identity of the alleged culprit) the fires then caused the steel girders to melt and the towers to collapse. But this assertion does not withstand critical examination. The official story, in fact, is full of holes. It's not just full of holes, it's a deliberate lie.
The towers did not collapse because of the plane impacts and the fires. Possibly (but not certainly) explosives were placed besides their structural supports in the upper levels of the towers (beneath the impact level), explosives which were detonated 45 to 90 minutes after the planes hit, bringing the towers down in controlled implosions, killing several thousand American citizens and others.
The Twin Towers were designed to survive the impact of a large airplane. Had one of them collapsed, that would have been amazing. That both of them collapsed, quickly and completely into fragments, ash and dust; with no remains of their central vertical steel columns left standing, solely as a result of the plane impacts and the resulting fires, is, upon examination, unbelievable.
Due to the astuteness of some Americans, who have thought hard about the U.S. government's explanation of the events of September 11th, the official story has begun to unravel. The big lie has begun to be revealed for what it is. And the reason for it. If you don't already know, this page will inform you as to what's really going on. As in the "War on Drugs," in the "War on Terrorism" just say 'Know.'
A Controlled Demolition
Millions of people around the world watched the WTC events unfold live on CNN on September 11, 2001, in near‑disbelief. They saw huge clouds of thick black smoke billowing over Manhattan and saw the towers collapse...in a curious way. They did not fall over; they imploded, in the way that most people have seen when a building is destroyed in a controlled demolition: the building does not collapse in a chaotic way, hurling debris over a wide area; rather it collapses upon itself. This was how the WTC towers collapsed: not because they were hit by the hijacked planes, but because someone, with expert knowledge of demolition of tall buildings, brought them down.
That the towers were demolished was noted immediately by some astute observers: Why is it so hard for people to recognize that it wasn't the airplane impacts that blew up the World Trade Center? To me, this is the most frightening part of this morning....
If one watches the time sequence, you'll see that it happens like this:
(1) A plane hits tower #1, blowing a hole in it high up. The expected things then happen:
(a) The building stays up. A reinforced concrete building is *extremely* strong. Terrorists set off a large bomb *inside* that building without significant damage...The WTC towers were specifically designed to survive a direct impact from a jumbo jet ‑ which *both do*. ...
(b) The second plane hits the second tower, lower and moving faster. It blows a bigger hole through it, showering debris on the street, but the building is clearly still standing and still looks quite solid.
(c) The second building begins burning, also from the impact point up.
(d) Perhaps a half hour later, the fire in the first building *goes out*. It is still smouldering and letting off black smoke, but there is no flame.
(e) The fire in the second building goes out.
(f) Then, later, the second building suddenly crumbles into dust, in a smooth wave running from the top of the building (above the burned part) down through all the stories at an equal speed. The debris falls primarily inward. The tower does not break off intact and collapse into other buildings...The crumbling comes from the top (above the damage). It moves at a uniform rate. All of the structural members are destroyed in a smooth pattern, so there is no remaining skeleton. The damage is uniform, symmetric, and total.
In summary, it looks exactly like a demolition ‑ because that's what it is.
1). The first tower collapses in a similar demolition wave.
2). There's no doubt that the planes hit the building and did a lot of damage. But look at the footage ‑ those buildings were *demolished*. To demolish a building, you don't need all that much explosive but it needs to be placed in the correct places (in direct contact with the structural members) and ignited in a smooth, timed sequence. ...
Obviously the towers did not collapse because of the plane impacts alone, because both towers stood for 45 to 90 minutes after impact. The official explanation, parroted faithfully by the mainstream media, is that the towers collapsed because burning jet fuel caused the steel girders supporting them to melt. First we must examine this hypothesis as to its credibility.
Firstly, much, or perhaps most, of the jet fuel was consumed in the fireballs which erupted when the planes hit the towers. Furthermore, it is likely that the jet fuel which managed to enter the towers would have burnt fairly quickly (jet fuel does not burn slowly like wood). And finally there were sprinkler systems in place in the towers, and it can be surmised that these would have hindered the spread of the fire (by soaking combustible material) even if they had no effect on the burning jet fuel itself.
The Twin Towers were giving off a lot of black sooty smoke, but there was little fire visible. But to melt steel you need the high temperature produced by, e.g., an oxy‑acetylene torch. Jet fuel burning in air (especially in an enclosed space within a building, where there is much smoke and little available oxygen) just won't do it. And if the steel columns had melted, would this have produced the implosive collapse observed? If the columns had melted like toffee they would have bent (not snapped), causing the upper parts of the towers to buckle and tip to one side (probably the side where the planes hit). This did not happen. These considerations (and others, given below, concerning the probable maximum temperature of the fire) show that the claim that tens of thousands of liters of burning jet fuel produced a raging inferno and caused the steel columns to melt is extremely dubious, and does not account for the collapse of the towers.
Examination of the times of the events of September 11th provides further evidence that it was not the fires that caused the Twin Towers to collapse. The North Tower was hit first, at 8:45 a.m. The plane hit the tower directly, in the center, and all the jet fuel which was not immediately consumed in the fireball entered the building, causing a major fire. Then at 9:03 a.m. the South Tower was hit, but whoever was controlling the plane did not manage a direct hit; rather the plane hit the tower toward a corner and at a shallow angle (see pictures at left and below), and comparatively little of the jet fuel entered the building, most being consumed in the fireball.
The fire in the South Tower was thus less intense than that in the North Tower. But the South Tower collapsed first, at 9:50 a.m., 47 minutes after impact, whereas the North Tower collapsed at 10:29 a.m., 1 hour and 44 minutes after impact. Had the fires been the cause of the collapse then the North Tower, with its more intense fire, would have collapsed first. Or, put another way, had the fires been the cause of the collapse then the South Tower, hit after the North Tower, and subjected to a less intense fire, would have collapsed after (not before) the North Tower collapsed.
The Split‑Second Error...Exposing the WTC Bomb Plot...Note: This page assumes that an on‑board hijacker was piloting the plane, but its argument concerning the cause of the collapse remains valid if the plane was actually being controlled remotely (see below).
A convincing case (with numerous web references supporting his argument) that the Twin Towers did not collapse because...heating steel is like pouring syrup onto a plate: you can't get it to stack up. The heat just flows out to the colder parts of the steel, cooling off the part you are trying to warm up...Am I to believe that the fire burned all that time, getting constantly hotter until it reached melting temperature [1538°C, not 800°C as was reported]? Or did it burn hot and steady throughout until 200,000 tons of steel [the amount of steel in one of the Twin Towers] were heated molten; on one plane load of jet fuel?...
In a picture showing the top 25 floors of one tower (probably south) toppling over sideways (http://news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/1535000/images/_1538563_thecollapseap150.jpg). Why are there no reports of this cube of concrete and steel (measuring 200 ft. wide, 200 ft. deep, and 200 ft. high), falling from 1000 feet into the street below? Where is the ruin where the 200ft x 200ft x 50 story‑object struck? Forty floors should have caused a ray of devastation 500 ft. into the surrounding city scape.
When the platters [the floors] fell, those quarter‑mile high central steel columns (at least from the ground to the fire) should have been left standing naked and unsupported in the air, and then they should have fallen intact or in sections to the ground below, clobbering buildings hundreds of feet from the WTC site like giant trees falling in the forest. But there hasn’t been any pictures showing those columns standing, falling, or lying on the ground. Nor have I heard of damage caused by them.
“The maximum temperature in the unprotected steel supports in those test fires [in the U.K., Japan, the U.S. and Australia] was 360 degrees C (680 F), and that is a long way from the first critical threshold in structural steel, 550 degrees C (1022 F)...I think the case is made: The fire did not weaken the WTC structure sufficiently to cause the collapse of the towers.” (Muslims Suspend Laws of Physics! Part II)
There is a mystery here. What brought those towers down? Explosives? "To demolish a building, you don't need all that much explosive but it needs to be placed in the correct places...Someone had to have had a lot of access to all of both towers and a lot of time to do this."
The towers collapsed, but not because of the plane impacts and the fires. It is easy to leap from the fact that the towers did not collapse because of the fires to the conclusion they collapsed because explosives were placed in them prior to the plane impacts (since what else could explain the collapse?). But disproof of one possible explanation (fire) does not constitute proof of another (explosives); unless that other is the only possible alternative.
That explosives were used is certainly possible. The towers collapsed starting with the floors at, or just below, the impact points of the planes. If explosive devices (bombs) had been placed in the towers (assuming that whoever placed them there were experts in controlled demolition and knew what effect they wanted to achieve) they would have been placed, not in the basement (as in the case of the 1993 WTC bombing), but rather at the upper levels (or perhaps at every level over a wide range). The bombs could have been encased in heat‑resistant material so that the fire itself would not detonate them, but rather they could be detonated by remote control (a radio or microwave signal) at the right time. Even if the fires (despite the dampening effect of the sprinkler systems) disabled the bombs on the levels where the planes hit, they would not disable the bombs on the floors below the fires. No wires, CPUs or timing devices are needed, just some way for each explosive device to respond to the unique signal causing it to explode, and these signals could be sent "in a smooth, timed sequence," producing the intended result.
There are, however, four problems with the explosives theory, although these objections can be answered:
(1) The WTC employed hundreds of security guards and had hundreds of surveillance cameras (supposedly) operating. With this kind of security it might be possible to plant a few bombs but planting many would seem infeasible (unless the central steel columns were not subject to security checks and surveillance). However, the ownership of the World Trade Center changed hands eleven weeks before the attack. The new owner was Larry Silverstein. The destruction of the WTC has proven to be (and could have been foreseen to be) of major benefit to Israel with respect to the problems arising from its ongoing subjugation of the Palestinians. A request by Israel to the new owner to hire a new set of (Mossad‑trained) "security guards" might well have been received with favor.
(2) It is unclear whether anyone heard explosions just prior to the collapse (although at least one person has claimed to have heard an explosion), although (a) there is visual evidence of an explosion in the Seven WTC building and (b) if explosions had been heard this might not have been reported in the mainstream media (intent as it is on propagating the official story about the cause of the collapse). Major explosions within the towers might have been obscured by the heavy black smoke, but one would expect them to have been heard, since there were people within a block of the towers when they collapsed. Could explosions powerful enough to destroy the steel supports have been muffled somehow? Or were there explosions sufficiently small (yet still effective) that they were not heard outside? Were there small explosions whose effects were somehow magnified by another kind of technology (perhaps "a phased frequency harmonic pulse")? Some people, however, have reported that videos reveal an explosion just prior to the collapse of at least one of the towers. And since no‑one was expecting explosions, which (if there were any) were immediately followed by the roar of the collapse, it is possible that explosions occurred but were not registered.
(3) Even if the central steel columns had been blasted at approximately the level of the impacts, causing the floors above to collapse and the whole structure to pancake, the central columns below the blast level would still be left standing, or if not, would have fallen over. But those central columns were not left standing. Apparently all 1000 ft (300 m.) of them were reduced to fragments. (The fire theory explains this even less than the explosives theory.) If explosives were the cause then one has to suppose that the steel columns were destroyed by explosives at all (or at least most) of the levels. In the eleven weeks since the new owners took over explosives could indeed have been placed at all levels.
(4) If explosives had been planted sufficient to weaken the structural supports, why not have planted explosives sufficient to destroy those supports even without any plane impacts and fires? Why bother to hijack the planes (remotely) and crash them into the towers when the damage caused by the explosives would produce a similar effect? (The technology has been placed into the commercial jets for a good number of years which would allow some outside source to take control and fly the jews by remote control. It has been developed so much that they can now be landed in zero visibility by someone in the control tower) Because the aim was to place the blame on "Arab terrorists" and it would have been difficult to explain how a bunch of Arab terrorists had sufficient access to all levels of the Twin Towers to place the required explosives and to coordinate their detonation in a controlled fashion.
The fires did not cause the collapse of the towers, but it remains unproven that explosives caused the collapse. But the towers did collapse, and in a very strange manner, as if demolished in a controlled way, leaving almost nothing but metal fragments from the outer shell and huge quantities of fine ash and dust, without the central steel columns from the lower sixty floors either standing or fallen. This is very strange. Look at all that dust (click image to enlarge). It is as if some high‑energy disintegration beam had been focused on the tower, pulverizing every concrete slab into minute particles of ash and dust (and leaving a nauseous odor which lingered on in Manhattan for many weeks, causing health problems for New York residents). But no country possesses such a disintegration beam; or if so, we have not been told of it.
But if "black" technology was used (rather than explosives) then one insight emerges: Why jetliners were (remotely; see below) hijacked and crashed into the Twin Towers. The reason would be that such "black" technology is certainly beyond the capabilities of any Arab terrorists. Had this technology simply been used to bring the Twin Towers down then many questions would have been asked as to how this happened. A story that Arab terrorists detonated explosives which completely destroyed the buildings would not withstand criticism, so some other "plausible" explanation for the collapse of the towers had to be provided and this was done in the form of the plane impacts and subsequent fires. This "explanation" has an initial plausibility, and it was immediately broadcast by the mainstream media, and immediately accepted by a public in a state of shock. Only a careful examination of this story, such as has been done in J. McMichael's article, reveals its inadequacy, leading to the conclusion that "black" technology was used (unless the explosives theory is true).
Who possesses such technology? For sure not Arab terrorists, whose expertise with destructive technology extends not much beyond truck bombs.
It is interesting to note that the contractor whose people were the first on the WTC collapse scene; to cart away the rubble that remains, is the same contractor who demolished and hauled away the shell of the bombed Oklahoma City Murrah building. The name of the contractor is Controlled Demolition! — THE BLOCKBUSTER.
But what demolition technology known to man could account for the demolition of the Twin Towers with the results observed: the total destruction of the massive steel columns and the conversion of four hundred thousands cubic yards of concrete into ash and dust? Such a technology, it would seem, is presently beyond anything we humans possess.
Here is a reply to criticism of (mostly) this section.
The demolition of the WTC was part of an ongoing plan (in effect since the Kennedy assassination if not before) to destroy the American Republic (what's left of it anyway) and replace it by a de facto dictatorship (as part of the drive toward a global dictatorship in the form of a world government).
The person who, shortly after the attacks on the WTC, was announced as "the prime suspect" (without any evidence) was Usama bin Laden, who has made no secret of his animosity toward the U.S. for its support of Israeli subjugation of the Palestinians, for what he sees as the Americans' defilement of Saudi Arabia (the location of two of the three holiest Islamic sites), the continued bombing of Iraq and the Americans' support of the (as he sees them) apostate regimes of Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The contempt with which the U.S. is regarded by certain Arab organizations, and the involvement of Arabs in the ineffective bombing of the WTC in 1993, means that Arabs are automatically suspected in any terrorist attack against the U.S. (as they were in the Oklahoma City Bombing until the government announced that Timothy McVeigh was the culprit). So a plot is hatched, not by Arabs but by Americans (agents of the civilian "state security and intelligence" agencies and bureaus, with a few military intelligence types), perhaps with Israeli involvement, to hijack four planes and fly them into various strategic and symbolic buildings; the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the Capitol, with the blame to be placed upon "Arab terrorists."
But there's a problem: It is certainly possible to find Arabs who are willing to die for their cause (freedom of their people from ongoing American aggression) although finding nineteen of them for a single mission could be difficult, but where do you find such Arabs who also know how to fly Boeing 757s and Boeing 767s? They must be highly trained pilots, and at least four of them are needed. (Alleged hijacker‑pilots Mohammed Atta, Marwanal Al‑Shehhi and Hani Hanjour had received pilot training but were considered by their flying instructors to be incompetent to fly even light single‑engined planes.)
Fortunately there's no need for suicide pilots, because the technology exists to override pilot control of a jetliner and to control the plane remotely.
“In the mid‑seventies...two American multinationals collaborated with the Defense Advanced Projects Agency (DARPA) on a project designed to facilitate the remote recovery of hijacked American aircraft. [This technology]...allowed specialist ground controllers to...take absolute control of [a hijacked plane's] computerized flight control system by remote means. From that point onwards, regardless of the wishes of the hijackers or flight deck crew, the hijacked aircraft could be recovered and landed automatically at an airport of choice, with no more difficulty than flying a radio‑controlled model plane. [This was] the system used to facilitate direct ground control of the four aircraft used in the high‑profile attacks on New York and Washington on 11th September 2001.” (Joe Vialls: Home Run: Electronically Hijacking the World Trade Center Attack Aircraft)
Thus there is no need to suppose that there were nineteen on‑board hijackers who (acting with military coordination and precision) overpowered the flight attendants (with nothing more than knives and shouted commands), forced their way into the cabin (were all eight official pilots absorbed in contemplation of the clouds?), overpowered the pilots (apparently none of them could offer any resistance to hijackers armed only with knives), took command of the planes (apparently knowing exactly what to do, while the official pilots sat back and watched with increasing alarm), flew them expertly to their targets (good navigators, those Arabs; and flying with the skill of a trained military pilot in the case of the jet which hit the Pentagon), hit those targets and killed themselves. Sure. And pigs can fly.
The jet which struck the Pentagon is reported by the New York Times (IHT, 2001‑10‑17, p.8) to have executed a 360‑degree 7,000‑foot descent over Washington while flying at 500 mph. It approached the Pentagon on a horizontal trajectory (so as to maximize the damage to the building) so low that it clipped the power lines across the street. And we're expected to believe that this maneuver was executed by an Arab pilot, Hani Hanjour, who in August was judged by the chief flight instructor at Bowie's Maryland Freeway Airport as not having the piloting skills required to fly a Cessna 172 solo. (Is there something fishy here?)
Remote control of a large jet aircraft is not speculative. That this technology exists is public knowledge. It was developed by Northrop Grumman for use in Global Hawk, an automated American military jet (with the wingspan of a Boeing 737). For further details about Global Hawk see Operation 911: NO SUICIDE PILOTS.
But although it is possible to hijack the planes remotely and to crash them into the Twin Towers under remote control, this would in itself produce only huge damage, with perhaps hundreds of lives lost, which is not enough for the plotters. What they want is to destroy both towers completely, for maximum psychological effect upon the people of the U.S. and the world and for the provocation of a hysterical reaction from the American people directed against Arabs and the Islamic world. Thus they somehow arrange for the demolition and collapse of the Twin Towers following the plane impacts (though, as noted above, exactly how this was done is still a mystery).
On the side the plotters have (under cover of a series of go‑betweens) purchased put options for companies whose stocks are sure to be adversely affected by these events, such as the parent companies of the airlines whose planes are hijacked. Their intention is to make a killing, so to speak, by purchasing the right to sell stocks in these companies at a price which they know will be considerably higher than the price they can buy them at on the open market (after the September 11th attack has driven the prices down).
All goes according to plan (almost). The first two jets (AA Flight 11 and UA Flight 175) are hijacked (remotely) and flown into the Twin Towers. (U.S. Air Force jets are scrambled from Otis air force base on Cape Cod at 8:38 a.m. but do not have time to reach Manhattan before the impacts.) AA Flight 77, hijacked at about the time of the WTC impacts, reaches its intended target, the Pentagon. (No U.S. Air Force jets are sent to intercept it during the 30‑40 minutes it takes to reach Washington.)
But there is one minor hitch and one major hitch: The minor hitch is that UA Flight 175 does not crash directly into one side of the South Tower but hits a corner. Most of the jet fuel explodes outside the building, and this leads some astute people to doubt the fires‑caused‑the‑collapse story (see The Split‑Second Error), and the official account of events begins to unravel (though not a word of this is printed in the mainstream media).
The major hitch is what happened with the fourth plane. UA Flight 93, which took off from Newark, was hijacked (and subsequently made a U‑turn over Ohio) at about the time of the WTC impacts and was flying back toward Washington D.C. when something went badly wrong. (Perhaps the on‑board pilots managed to regain manual control of the plane or the remote control technology failed.) The plane (with its 45 passengers and crew) was then shot down by a U.S. Air Force F‑16 fighter jet before it could land, so as to ensure that the pilots did not survive to tell what had happened, namely, that the controls had suddenly failed to respond to manual directions and that the plane had changed course toward Washington as if under the control of an invisible hand.
“Pennsylvania state police officials said on Thursday debris from the plane had been found up to 8 miles away (from the crash site) in a residential community [Indian Lake] where local media have quoted residents as speaking of a second plane in the area [this was the F‑16 fighter] and burning debris falling from the sky.” (Reuters, Sept. 13, as quoted in Troubling Questions in Troubling Times)
As for the story which appeared in Newsweek, etc., about plucky passengers jumping the hijackers, goodbye messages left on answering machines, and so on; this was pure fiction, fabricated by some psy‑war operative with training as a two‑bit Hollywood scriptwriter.
The story even has the ultimate terror of imminent death in the 'reported' (but unheard by you or I) last words of an airline stewardess. "My God, my God, I see buildings....water!"
Down at the bottom of the Bargain Bin, in the pulp fiction section of the local charity shop, I can find dime‑a‑dozen trashy novels with plenty of "My God, My God..." dialogue. But the REAL world of actual airline stewardess has people, not cartoon dumb blondes. They KNOW what New York looks like from the air ...
She might have said something credible like: "Jesus Christ! We're gonna hit Manhattan."
“But no. ‘I see buildings...’ (...and, wait for it...) ...pause.. ‘...water.’ Check out that pregnant pause in every publication of the quote. Does that pause feel right to you? Not to me. The whole thing feels like a ham‑fisted effort designed to make us believe certain things.” (Tall Tales of the Wag Movie)
The target of the fourth plane was probably the U.S. Congress building on Capitol Hill. Had the hijackers succeeded in badly damaging the House and Senate (and perhaps killing a large number of congressmen and women) the operation would have been a complete success. President George W. Bush would then have been able to announce that, since the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government was no longer able to function, he was assuming (temporarily, of course) sole and total control in this time of national emergency, though in fact he would be, as he is now, a mere puppet, told by his controllers where to go and what to do and say, barely able to read his script, and unable to hold in mind more than one idea at a time (the idea currently held being, of course, "terrorism").
On December 18, 2000, in Washington, shortly after he was anointed as President by a corrupt majority of the U.S. Supreme Court, Bush said (apparently jokingly, but you can be sure he meant it): "If this were a dictatorship it would be a heck of a lot easier; just so long as I was the dictator." On September 11, 2001, he almost got his wish.
It is perhaps not entirely a coincidence that, as noted above, September 11, 2001, was the 28th anniversary (on the same day of the week even) of the CIA‑inspired and CIA‑supported military coup d'etat in Chile, which produced the brutal 16‑year dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
Within hours of the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon the mainstream media was quoting "government sources" as stating that Usama bin Laden was the likely culprit. As the WTC bombers intended, most Americans immediately believed this claim and now regard him as the perpetrator of this atrocity and the entire Arab world as their enemy (a reaction welcomed by many in Israel). Many people in Arab countries also believe he did it because for them Usama bin Laden personifies the resentment against American exploitation of the third world which they themselves feel. But Usama bin Laden has never said that he was behind the September 11th attack, and, indeed, has explicitly denied this.
“I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children and common people...” (Usama bin Laden, Interview with Pakistani newspaper Ummat (Karachi), September 28, 2001)
After one of the video broadcasts from the Al‑Jazeera TV station in Qatar (which, as has been pointed out elsewhere, may have been a Western‑concocted forgery, since Usama bin Laden, or someone impersonating him, is shown wearing a U.S. Army jacket; much as if Churchill had delivered his wartime speeches wearing a swastika armband and the uniform of a Luftwaffe colonel) Condoleeza Rice declared that this was an "admission" by Usama bin Laden of responsibility for the September 11th attack. It was not, but by claiming it was she maintains the official line of blaming "Arab terrorists" and draws attention away from the true perpetrators of this atrocity.
Several thousand civilians died in the collapse of the WTC towers, and hundreds of military personnel were killed in the attack on the Pentagon; though the numbers are small compared to the hundreds of thousands of civilians incinerated in the U.S. fire bombings of
1). Hamburg, Dresden and Tokyo, and in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki;
2). the two to five million post‑World‑War‑II refugees from the Soviet Union who were forcibly returned to Stalin, to face either immediate execution or a slow death in the Gulag;
3). on the orders of Roosevelt and Eisenhower in Operation Keelhaul; the millions of civilians who died from hunger and disease as a result of U.S.‑instigated mass starvation of Germans during 1945‑1950 under the Morgenthau Plan;
4). the hundreds of thousands of Native Americans killed by white settlers in the 19th Century or allowed to starve to death by the U.S. government in the 20th;
5). the 20,000+ Vietnamese killed by the CIA in their political assassination program Operation Phoenix; the million or so Vietnamese, Laotians and Cambodians killed by the American military in the 1960s and 70s whilst defending their countries from American domination (or simply because they happened to be where the Americans carried out their carpet bombings);
6).the tens of thousands of civilians who were tortured and murdered by CIA‑installed dictatorships in Central and South America;
7). the 200,000 people (all civilians) killed as a result of Indonesia's invasion of East Timor in 1975 for which prior approval was given to Suharto by Henry Kissinger and Gerald Ford;
8). the six million Brazilian Indians who have died as a result of the policies of multinational corporations;
9). the 10,000 to 20,000 people, mostly civilians, killed in the U.S.‑supported 1982 invasion of Lebanon by Israel;
10). the 100,000 civilians killed by Reagan's CIA‑cocaine‑funded Contras in Nicaragua and El Salvador in the 1980s;
11). the 6,000 (perhaps as many as 20,000) Iraqi civilians killed during the 41 days and nights of bombing by the British and the Americans in 1991 (during which time the civilian infrastructure was targeted, a war crime);
12). the tens of thousands of Iraqi conscripts slaughtered on the "Highway of Death" by U.S. Navy pilots during their attempted retreat from Kuwait in 1991 (another war crime because the soldiers killed were not in a combat situation);
13). the tens of thousands of civilians in Sudan who have died due to the absence of medicines resulting from the destruction of the Sudanese pharmaceutical plant by American cruise missiles in 1998 and from the economic sanctions imposed on Sudan;
14). and the one to two million Iraqi civilians, two‑thirds of them children, who have died in the last ten years as a result of the effects of the hundreds of tons of cancer‑causing depleted uranium left over from the million or so exploded rounds of DU ammunition used in attacks by American warplanes in the 1991 American/British 6‑week terrorist campaign against Iraq and from the subsequent U.S./British‑ imposed economic blockade (not to mention those killed by the bombing raids which occur every week).
America expresses outrage at the deaths of several thousand of its citizens but ignores its responsibility for the deaths of tens of millions of civilians at the hands of its military and its CIA; and still expects and demands the world's sympathy for its loss.
The attacks against the WTC and the Pentagon were brought to us by the same people (though "human" may not be the correct term for them) who brought us both the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing and the Oklahoma City Bombing.
Evidence suggests that the former was actually planned and directed, not by Arab terrorists (who were merely the operatives), but by the FBI and the Israeli Mossad.
“The mastermind [of the 1993 WTC bombing] is the government of the United States. It was a phony, government‑engineered conspiracy to begin with. It would never have amounted to anything had the government not planned it.” (Ron Kuby, defense attorney, quoted in Troubling Questions in Troubling Times)
In the Oklahoma City Bombing explosives were placed by the structural supports of the Murrah Federal Building, demolishing it and killing hundreds of people. The psy‑war propaganda experts then succeeded in convincing the more gullible among the American people that this was the work of one or two men using a truck full of ammonium nitrate. (Some of the high‑explosive devices planted within the building did not explode, were seen by four witnesses after the attack, and were removed by the FBI but were never officially mentioned.) Within a few days of the bombing the Counter‑Terrorism Bill was passed by Congress, a piece of legislation which provided for secret trials and seizure of assets without due process of law.
The enormity of the atrocity of the attack on the Twin Towers is made worse by its being perpetrated, not by external enemies of America, but from within; by a secret group of traitors who may be American‑born but who care nothing for American national pride since for them control of the U.S. is just a means toward total control of the planet. For at least forty years this group of traitors (most of whom are present or former occupants of the White House or are working or have worked in those U.S. government organizations whose activities are hidden behind a cloak of "national security") has controlled the U.S. government by subversion of its democratic institutions, has manipulated a gullible American population and the political leadership of other countries by the skillful use of propaganda (with the help of shamelessly compliant "news" organizations), has ruthlessly exploited the economic resources of the Earth for its own profit, and must now be laughing and congratulating itself that its lies appear to have been believed by almost everyone and that its plans for complete economic and military conquest of the entire planet are coming along so nicely; thanks to the stupidity of the American people, who appear to be mostly incapable of thinking about anything except their own amusement (or their own economic survival) and who are willing to believe whatever their lying government tells them.
But just as the attempt by the predecessors of these traitors to establish a "Thousand‑Year Reich" resulted in complete and ignominious defeat, their plans also may yet come to naught, though at what cost to the American people and the rest of the world remains to be seen.
The situation may actually be much worse than this. The evil which has been perpetrated by these traitors, acting through the U.S. government, its military and its multinationals, the IMF and other institutions, over many years, is sufficiently great that one has to wonder whether the instigators have any concern at all for the welfare and dignity of the human species. Furthermore, the manner in which the Twin Towers collapsed, and the nature of the resulting debris, suggest the use of technologically highly advanced means of destruction unknown to us. The real instigators of this atrocity (and of the larger drive to enslave, or perhaps exterminate, the entire population of the planet) may actually not be human at all (see The Gods of Eden). If so, we have a real problem.
The "War on Terrorism"
Although they failed to destroy the Capitol the plotters achieved most of their objectives, including a strike against the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy headquarters, just to show them who was in charge (only the U.S. Air Force section of the Pentagon was undamaged in the attack). And just as the Oklahoma City Bombing created a situation conducive to the government's rushing through "anti‑terrorist" legislation this "Attack on America" has provided a further nice justification for eliminating whatever civil liberties the American people had up to now managed to hold on to. In the name of "safety" and "security" the "authorities" will soon have a legal right (the appropriate legislation will be rushed through by a compliant and corrupt Congress under the guise of "an emergency anti‑terrorist package") to do whatever they want to monitor and control the entire population.
Anyone accused of being "a threat to the safety and security of the American people" (in reality, to the state and those who control it) will find themselves imprisoned without benefit of trial (if they do not "disappear" completely as did many of the victims of Chile's DINA secret police).Already in mid‑October the FBI announced the arrest of more than 600 people, "refusing to identify most of the detainees and offering few details about why the government wanted them behind bars." (International Herald Tribune, October 15, 2001) By December the number had grown to over 1,200, with only one of those persons charged with a crime. Torture was being considered for those who are "uncooperative." (Let's hope no‑one in your family gets arrested, by mistake, and information is demanded from them which they don't have.)
“And so one of Secretary [of Defense] Rumsfeld's first tasks will be...to develop a strategy necessary to have a force equipped for warfare of the 21st century.” (George W. Bush, Washington DC, December 28, 2000)
And, of course, this heinous act of "international terrorism" provides a fine excuse for a yet greater military build up (and justification for Bush's $344 billion war budget); in particular the already‑planned development of "defensive" missiles, allegedly to foil attacks by "international terrorists" (even though they neither possess nor need intercontinental nuclear‑tipped ballistic missiles), but which might also prove quite useful in defending the U.S. from retaliation by any nation which it chooses to attack.
“WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind...” (Preamble to the Charter of the United Nations)
Indeed, the U.S. government (in violation of the United Nations charter and international law) has now given itself permission; in the form of a congressional resolution, to attack whoever it wants to, to engage openly in political assassinations in the manner of Israel, and generally to wage war upon whoever it chooses to label as its enemy. We can expect that the number of innocent civilians who will die as a result of U.S. military action in the coming months and years will be far more than the number of those who died in the WTC attack. But, of course, since they will mostly not be Americans, Europeans or Australians, this is of no concern, except insofar as it might result in international condemnation, making it difficult to maintain the "international coalition" that the U.S. seeks to provide a fig‑leaf for its upcoming military aggression against those countries which decline to accede to its demands. (And, by the way, such aggression and the collateral regional wars that it will cause in various parts of Asia will, of course, be good for U.S. arms manufacturers, and other American companies with friends in the U.S. government, which profit from war.)
“We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.” (George W. Bush, Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 21, 2000)
Bush has announced that America is now embarked upon a "War on Terrorism" (in his speech to the joint session of Congress on September 17th he used the words "terror," "terrorist" and "terrorism" at total of 32 times, and "war" twelve times, so no‑one would fail to get the message). But before the U.S. retaliated by bombing Afghanistan day and night for weeks it should first have established exactly who instigated, planned and directed the terrorist attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon. Despite the attempt to blame nineteen passengers on the four planes who happened to have Arabic names, this has not been done. The evidence must be such as to convince third parties such as the Europeans, and the evidence must be made public (not every last detail, but enough to establish the case). Insiders such as the U.S. President, the British Prime Minister and the NATO Secretary‑General declaring themselves "convinced" is insufficient. Such declarations will fool some people, but these officials are literally warmongers and will do anything to justify their waging of war, including lying to the public about the convincingness of the alleged evidence. Only when convincing evidence has been made public, and the identity of the attackers established, would it be possible to declare "war" without misuse of language. Until then the "War on Terrorism" will be a propaganda campaign like the "War on Drugs" a way of disguising the true aims and motivations of those waging this "war," which in this case is that age‑old motivation: territorial and economic conquest.
But, of course, the U.S. government will never reveal who exactly planned and directed these attacks, firstly because it was an inside job, and secondly because blame must be laid upon "Arab terrorists" in order to "justify" the "War on Terrorism" and the military assaults upon Arab countries (recently and, as the U.S. and Britain plan at least, for years to come; indeed, in the words of one Pentagon official, possibly "for the rest of our lives")
“Not only did Bush announce a ‘War on Terrorism,’ he even spoke stupidly of a ‘crusade,’ invoking memories of the medieval Christian crusades against Islam to recover ‘the Holy Land,’ though these days it is more accurate to speak of gaining control of the oil fields, which is another reason (actually, the primary reason) why America has given itself permission to invade whatever countries it chooses to. And it's not just Middle Eastern oil; there are huge oil deposits in the Caspian Basin (larger than in Saudia Arabia). In 1998 Unocal testified before the House Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific that a pipeline across Afghanistan was crucial to transport Caspian Basin oil to the Indian Ocean. Bush and the American oil companies would dearly like to lay such a pipeline across Afghanistan, but, say some, they cannot do so because the Taleban have been demanding too large a per centage as their cut for allowing the pipeline project to proceed. Hence, the oil monopoly needs to overthrow the Kabul government, install their own government, and proceed with the pipeline project.” (Sherman H. Skolnick, The Overthrow of the American Republic, Part 2)
In fact from February to August 2001 the Bush administration conducted detailed negotiations with the Taliban to lay this hoped‑for pipeline across Afghanistan and Pakistan so as to profit from lucrative sales to oil‑hungry Asian countries. In August the negotiations broke down, after a U.S. negotiator threatened military action against the Taliban, saying, accept our offer of a carpet of gold or you will get a carpet of bombs (see Bin Laden: The Forbidden Truth). One month later the rationale for the carpet‑bombing was provided by the destruction of the WTC.
This "War on Terrorism" has three major components:
1). A propaganda war waged firstly against the American people and secondly against the rest of the people on this planet who have access to TV and newspapers.
2). A large increase in the powers of surveillance and control exercised by the U.S. federal government over U.S. citizens and residents and in the ability of the government to impose censorship.
3). The use of American military force (with help mainly from the British), to whatever extent necessary, to gain control of the oil reserves of the Caspian Basin, the mineral wealth of Central Asia and whatever other economic resources in other parts of Asia that the U.S. wishes to control.
The purpose of (1) is to disguise the true nature of (3) by presenting it as the use of military force to protect Americans against future terrorist attacks. The purpose of (2) is to stifle any protest and dissent from those Americans who are not fooled by (1) and who object to (3). Bush, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft & Co. know from the 1960s demonstrations against the Vietnam War that domestic opposition to military aggression abroad can bring that aggression to an end, and they wish to make sure in advance that the same thing will not happen this time.
As part of the implementation of (2) Bush has as good as told the American people that they have to sacrifice their civil liberties and their rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights in support of his "war," which most people seem willing, sheep‑like, to do (such amazing stupidity! or is half the population on Prozac?). Attorney General Ashcroft urged Congress to pass proposed "anti‑terrorist" legislation (which is very probably unconstitutional) even before it had been committed to paper. The legislation was hastily rushed through (the same day it was introduced) over the objections of civil rights advocates by a corrupt and compliant Congress in the second week of October. It consists of 342 pages, and those who voted for it could not possibly have read it.
The American government says that America is "at war" (as if that justifies anything the government wishes to do). But a war requires an identifiable enemy. A war is a war between two or more opposing sides. A "war" in which one side is invisible is a fantasy; a pretext to restrict civil liberties, to impose censorship and to deny rights guaranteed to American citizens under the U.S. Constitution. It is a tool for psychological operations directed against both domestic and foreign populations, for deceiving the American people and others and persuading them to submit willingly to violations of their human rights. (Though one might say that if they do submit then they deserve the enslavement that will come to them) And in this case, as noted above, the purpose is to suppress any domestic opposition to U.S. military action abroad. And at home; remember that the U.S. military has been used against American citizens before: at Waco.
What is too shocking for many Americans to contemplate is that the terrorist attacks, from which the people of the U.S. are supposed to be protected by the "War on Terrorism," are themselves part of the propaganda war. In order to "justify" to the American people the U.S. bombing of Afghanistan and the deaths of Afghan civilians, the planned violent overthrow of the (admittedly reprehensible) Taleban government, the deployment of U.S. ground troops to seize territory in Afghanistan and in other countries, and the use of whatever weapons of death the Pentagon plans to use (including "low yield" nuclear weapons), the U.S. must present its actions as being morally good and noble (as in World War II), specifically, as motivated by the desire to protect decent, innocent American citizens from the evil of terrorist attacks.
Without terrorist attacks there is no justification for the military action, so terrorist attacks there must be. The attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon were the first (unless we count the Waco Massacre and the Oklahoma City Bombing), brought to you by those people who are directing the propaganda campaign and, indeed, scripting this entire "War on Terrorism." And (as the CIA informed members of Congress in early October) it is certain that there will be more terrorist attacks (how did they know?) most of them far less spectacular than the destruction of the Twin Towers, but sufficient (such as the controlled release of anthrax bacteria, probably by the CIA itself) to induce in the American public a state of constant fear; made worse by their not knowing who is really behind these attacks.
“Does the WTC attack feel like a movie? It does? Well of course it does! It has been specifically written as a movie script...This entire sequence of: hijack; first plane; second plane; Pentagon ;WTC collapse; phone calls from the planes; copy of the Koran; more attempted highjackings; arrests; plucky passengers; etc., etc., has been scripted by a crew of cynical planners who could care less that REAL people died in the Twin Towers.” (Tall Tales of the Wag Movie)
Wars end when one of the opposing sides is beaten into submission and can no longer fight. But if one side is invisible then the war can never end, because there is no way to know that the opposing side has been defeated. Indeed, if the American people begin to believe that perhaps the "terrorist threat" has begun to recede you can be sure that another "terrorist attack" will occur, courtesy of those scripting the "War on Terrorism," which will return them to their former state of fear and dread, which is just where the perpetrators want them to be. The "enemy" will remain an invisible, diabolical presence, unseen except for its evil effects when "the terrorists" attack again. The American people are about to enter a long, drawn‑out, nightmare, in which nothing will be what it seems. It is The Towering Inferno, Armageddon and The X‑Files suddenly emerging into daily life.
The "War on Terrorism" is the psy‑war successor to the "War on Drugs." It has been clear to almost everyone for quite some time that the "War on Drugs" is totally discredited, and those who are informed know that it is basically a component in a huge and long‑running scam whereby the U.S. government finances its covert operations and (in part) its military by means of its profits from its international drug trafficking (see Prohibition: The So‑Called War on Drugs for details). It became clear to the U.S. government, especially in view of the tolerance and regulation of drug use adopted in recent years in many European countries, that it can no longer maintain its "War on Drugs" with any degree of credibility. Thus the people of the U.S. had to be hoodwinked into supporting a new "War," and the bogeyman of "militant Arab fundamentalists" (helped greatly by a cravenly compliant mainstream media and terrorist attacks on the WTC in 1993, probably provoked by the FBI, and on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, in which US Army explosives had reportedly been used) provided a useful target.
This "War on Terrorism," like the "War on Drugs," will involve the usual propaganda techniques such as lies, deception, misrepresentation of opposition viewpoints, disinformation, fake opposition and media emphasis on what is irrelevant (for example, that Mohammed Atta may have contacted an Iraqi intelligence agent in Prague; of only minor interest since there were no on‑board hijackers and he and the other Arabs on board were set up to take the blame). The propaganda campaign will continue until the instigators and scripters of this "War" believe they have finally gained domination over all countries and have attained control of the entire planet and all its economic resources, or until they themselves have been defeated.
What is to be Done?
Immediately after the events of September 11th there were calls for greatly increased security at airports and on planes, and many millions of U.S. taxpayers' dollars are now being spent on this. Troops with automatic rifles stand around at airports, waiting for the next gang of Arab terrorists to burst into the departure lounge shouting "God is great!" in Arabic and threatening everyone with letter openers. Airport check‑in now takes hours, passengers are subjected to invasive searches before boarding planes, and if you look Middle Eastern then you may not be allowed to fly at all. All this is useless and irrelevant and is a major disruption in the lives of ordinary Americans, because, as noted above, there were no suicide pilots. No hijackers boarded the four doomed planes carrying knives and box cutters, so installing expensive security equipment at airports and treating every passenger as a potential hijacker is not only an insult but is also a complete waste of time and money (though it is sure to make a lot of money for the manufacturers of airport security equipment).
The "War on Terrorism" is not about terrorism (except insofar as staged terrorist acts are an important part of the propaganda campaign), it's (partly) about oil. To oversimplify somewhat and to put it a tad indelicately, "It's the oil, stupid!"
Big Oil wants a pan‑Asian war, with the U.S. military as the major and dominant player, the goal being economic control and exploitation of the vast oil and mineral wealth of Central Asia. The Bush clique believes that such a war would enable it to remain in power indefinitely (elections will become a thing of the past or will be rigged), would be good for American (and British) weapons manufacturers, and would perhaps avert an economic depression in the U.S. (since, many believe, it has worked before, as in the 1930s military build‑up to World War II).
A pan‑Asian war will involve many countries, including the nuclear‑ and CBW‑armed countries of India, Pakistan, Russia and China (not to mention the other nuclear‑ and CBW‑armed countries that are likely to be drawn in: Britain, France, Israel and the U.S. itself), and it will mean that millions of civilians will die: shot, burnt, blasted, asphyxiated, crushed, incinerated, poisoned. Nor will all these civilians be Asian; this war will also extend to the U.S. mainland and probably to Europe, despite what the Pentagon planners intend. Violence will lead to more violence, and wars will escalate (remember "escalation?”) until eventually nuclear weapons are used; first "low‑yield," later the big ones, in the megaton range, whose detonations (if there are enough of them, and we don't know how many will be used) will produce high levels of radiation in the atmosphere of (mainly) the Northern Hemisphere, leading to millions of cases of cancer among the populations of Western countries.
This is what should not be done, but on October 7th, 2001, the U.S., by attacking Afghanistan with bombers and cruise missiles (a military assault which was illegal under international law because military action against Afghanistan had not been specifically authorized by the United Nations), began what may eventually lead to this.
To those who believe that the attack on the Twin Towers was, at least in part, the work of foreign terrorists the answer to the question of what is to be done is: The root causes of foreign terrorism directed against the United States must be addressed. Those in power in the U.S. have been reluctant to do this (and will continue to resist doing this), mainly because violence, the threat of violence and a demonstrated ruthless willingness to use violence (combined with the use of mass propaganda and bribery and blackmail of officials at all levels, both elected and unelected) are the primary means by which they themselves remain in power.
The initiators of the attacks decided to implement their plan after America has provoked immense hatred throughout the world. Not because of its might, but because of the way it uses its might. It is hated by the enemies of globalization, who blame it for the terrible gap between rich and poor in the world. It is hated by millions of Arabs, because of its support for the Israeli occupation and the suffering of the Palestinian people. It is hated by multitudes of Muslims, because of what looks like its support for the Jewish domination of the Islamic holy shrines in Jerusalem. And there are many more angry peoples who believe that America supports their tormentors.
“Until September 11, 2001...Americans could entertain the illusion that all this concerns only others, in far‑away places beyond the seas, that it does not touch their sheltered lives at home.” (Uri Avnery: Twin Towers)
In a representative democracy, such as allegedly exists in the U.S.A., can the people deny responsibility for the actions and policies of their government? How long can they allow their government, whose leaders they elect, to commit one atrocity after another and at the same time pretend that they themselves are innocent of any wrong‑doing?
“Like the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, the unknown kamikaze rode their giant crafts into the two visible symbols of American world domination, Wall Street and the Pentagon...They could be practically anybody...anybody who rejects the twin gods of the dollar and the M‑16, who hates the stock market and interventions overseas, who dreams of America for Americans, who does not want to support the drive for world domination...Germans can remember the fiery holocaust of Dresden with its hundreds of thousands of peaceful refugees incinerated by the US Air Force. Japanese will not forget the nuclear holocaust of Hiroshima. the Arab world still feels the creeping holocaust of Iraq and Palestine. Russians and East Europeans feel the shame of Belgrade avenged...Asians count their dead of Vietnam war, Cambodia bombings, Laos CIA operations in millions...
“The Riders could be anybody who lost his house to the bank, who was squeezed from his work and made permanently unemployed, who was declared an Untermensch by the new Herrenvolk...
“America could see this painful strike at her Wall Street and her Pentagon, as the last call to repent. She should change her advisers, and build her relations with the world afresh, on equal footing. Probably she should rein in the domination‑ obsessed Jewish supremacist elites of Wall Street and media, part company with Israeli apartheid. She could become again the universally loved, rather parochial America of Walt Whitman and Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Abe Lincoln.” (Israel Shamir: Orient Express)
"Repent" is an apt term. Today the United States of America is morally bankrupt. During the coming months, or while there is still time, America (and to some extent Europe) must engage in some deep self‑examination. Americans have willfully ignored the reality that exists beyond their borders (other than sporting events and vacation destinations), often preferring to "create their own" so as to avoid acknowledging what they don't wish to see. Americans have been completely self‑absorbed, not knowing and not wanting to know the effects of their government's policies and actions on billions of people who live outside the U.S. Those policies and actions have resulted in millions of deaths through widespread malnutrition and the persistence of eradicable diseases; in economic, social and educational impoverishment for the majority of the world's population; and in the denial of human rights for all those who live under tyrannical regimes supported by the U.S. That is why the U.S.A. is so hated. (And insofar as other governments; in particular, the British government, have supported, and continue to support, U.S. policies they too deserve moral condemnation.)
The denial by Israel of the human rights of the Palestinians, and its decades‑long intransigent refusal to address their legitimate grievances, is just the most visible of the many evils resulting from morally bankrupt U.S. policies. The U.S. (at the urging of American Jews and acting through the United Nations at a time when most Arab states were not yet members) created Israel in 1947 against the wishes of the people of the Middle East. (The U.S. basically stole the land from the Palestinians and gave it to the Jews, and then gave the state of Israel money; currently three billion dollars per year; for all the police and military hardware it needed to hold onto that stolen territory and to steal, or "annex," even more.) Now the U.S. has to deal with the consequences (and it is interesting to note that just prior to the WTC attack the U.S. was preparing to announce its support for a Palestinian state; mandated by the U.N. in 1947 anyway, much to the displeasure of Israel).
Less visible are the many ways in which U.S. multinational corporations conspire with the U.S. government (which does its best to coerce other governments to follow it), the IMF, the World Bank and other organizations whose undeclared purpose is to make the rich richer and to maximize their profits regardless of the widespread impoverishment this brings to many people not only in developing countries but also to those people in modern industrial societies who do not belong to the moneyed and ruling class.
The facts have long been available to any U.S. resident who cares to read The Nation, Z Magazine, or the thirty or so books of Noam Chomsky (rarely mentioned in the mainstream media).
“I have often thought that if a rational Fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system.” (Noam Chomsky, Language and Responsibility)
Or any of the many audiotapes, videos, CD‑ROMS, books and magazine articles exposing the immoralities of the CIA (a terrorist organization which richly deserves to be eliminated as soon as possible, preferably by an act of Congress, with its headquarters at Langley demolished and the land ploughed over). But no; most Americans couldn't care less about the sufferings of people outside America, being too busy either trying to survive as wage‑slaves in a corporate capitalist society or (for the more fortunate) constantly scanning their immediate environment for ways to "enrich" their lives. Now they know what death, destruction, fear and dread are, what people in other countries have long known (over long periods) as a result of the actions and policies of the U.S. government and those of the corrupt regimes it has installed to serve its purposes.
So how have they responded to this revelation? Mostly with mindless demands on their government to seek revenge and further death and destruction, and the administration has pandered to this desire for revenge, declaring that he wants the alleged culprit Usama bin Laden "dead or alive." Seems he's changed his views on revenge since the 2000 Presidential campaign:
“...you cannot lead America to a positive tomorrow with revenge on one's mind. Revenge is so incredibly negative.” (George W. Bush, Interview with the Washington Post, March 23, 2000)
But after September 11th revenge was uppermost in the minds of most Americans and few of them were inclined to look at what brought this catastrophe to their land. Were they to look for the causes of the events of September 11th they might eventually be led to ask themselves whether their government is not so hypocritical, vicious, ignoble and immoral, so much the opposite of that ideal of government expressed in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, that it must be reformed completely, with most of its current office holders, including the President, the Vice‑President, the entire Cabinet and most long‑term members of Congress, removed in disgrace, before they can again think of themselves as Americans with any degree of self‑respect.
Wade Frazier: The Things We Do Not Want To Know
Their mindlessness is willful, and at least partly conscious. They do not know what is really happening because they do not want to know what is really happening. Why? As far as I have seen, it is because they benefit from the current arrangement (at least in the short term), and denial helps protect their flickering consciences.
All those institutions that we have given our power away to corporations, governments, churches, etc., have largely enslaved us with our own power. The only path to true freedom is by reclaiming our power, responsibility and sovereignty, and doing it lovingly.
There have been many (poorly reported) demonstrations against the administration’s intention to wage war but there can now be no return to a "peace" which allows Americans to ignore, as they have done for so long, the evils which their government perpetrates abroad.
In the weeks following the attack on the Twin Towers there were many pleas, such as those quoted above, for America to understand what motivated the terrorists to commit their heinous acts and for America to reconsider its policies and actions toward other countries. But although such a reconsideration is highly desirable, this view still assumes that it was Arab terrorists who were responsible, and such pleas were not well‑received by those (perhaps the majority) who felt that revenge was the immediate priority.
But if the attack on the Twin Towers was not, even in part, the work of Arab terrorists, but was the work of terrorists within the U.S. government itself who seek to gain control of Central Asian oil and to impose a fascist dictatorship not only upon the United States but also upon the entire world, then what is to be done? The answer is not so different. The only difference is that instead of the September 11th terrorist attack being the work of foreign terrorists outraged by decades of injustice and poverty in third‑world countries produced by a corrupt and immoral U.S. government it was the work of a group of traitors at high levels within that corrupt and immoral government itself. The answer remains that those traitors must be exposed, their crimes revealed, and they themselves removed from the positions of power they presently hold. Furthermore, government in the U.S. must be cleansed of corruption and restored to conformity with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights: a restoration of the American Republic. The "anti‑terrorist" legislation of October 2001 (and that of April 1995 and Britain's Terrorism Act of 2000), intended to facilitate government surveillance and control of the people so as to stifle free speech and dissent, must be repealed.
“The Bill of Rights is a literal and absolute document. The First Amendment doesn't say you have a right to speak out unless the government has a 'compelling interest' in censoring the Internet. The Second Amendment doesn't say you have the right to keep and bear arms until some madman plants a bomb. The Fourth Amendment doesn't say you have a right to be secure from search and seizure unless some FBI agent thinks you fit the profile of a terrorist. The government has no right to interfere with any of these freedoms under any circumstances.” (Harry Browne: Harry Browne on Anti‑terrorist Proposals)
America must also end its long history of the practice of genocide, honor the principles expressed in the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights, and cease its ruthless exploitation (mainly for the benefit of a capitalist ruling class) of the world's economic resources and the world's people. This means that better‑off Americans will have to give up some of the luxuries they've taken for granted, but perhaps they can make the sacrifice more readily if they remind themselves that over one billion people on this planet currently live (if you can call it living) on less than US$1 a day.
“Examples of genocide within U.S. history are common enough not to be considered remarkable or even genocide. Among historic crimes which are not commonly called genocide: the destruction of North American Indian peoples, the liquidation of six million Brazilian Indians through the policies of multi‑national corporations, effects of U.S. economic and military policies on the poor throughout the Americas, the Euro‑American slave trade and subsequent treatment of black Americans, and the fate of the American poor...Corporate capitalism may simply be legitimized genocide by economic means...Those without ethics no longer sell beads to the Indians, but rockets and missiles to ‘underdeveloped countries,’ where the arms kill off as many poor people as possible.” (J. B. Gerald: Is the U.S. Really a Signatory to the U.N. Convention on Genocide?)
If the people of the United States do not themselves cleanse their government of its current corruption, and return the nation to conformity with the principles of a republic, upon which it was founded, then disaster will ensue: Either a global fascist dictatorship will result or the U.S. government will be destroyed by the combined military forces of the rest of the world. Either of these possibilities could produce such damage on a global scale that the survival of the human species would be in doubt.
The instigators and scripters of the "War on Terrorism," who place their trust in modern technology, believe themselves invincible in their drive to enslave everyone, American and non‑American alike. But they overlook the fact that those Americans who have not prostituted themselves to the national security state and who, as true Americans, hold liberty among their highest values (and there are a lot of them) are unlikely to submit without a fight when they understand what is really going on.
The Corruption of the Republic
The BBC's George Arney reported on September 18 that Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, had stated that he had been informed by senior American officials at a Berlin UN‑sponsored international contact group on Afghanistan in mid‑July that Pentagon plans for a military assault on Afghanistan had already been completed. (This was the meeting in which a U.S. representative threatened the Taliban representatives with a carpet of bombs.) The assault on Afghanistan had to be carried out before snow begins to fall in the mountain passes, which is around mid‑October; and, indeed, it began on October 7th. The timing of the WTC attack was thus very convenient.
The Pentagon was clearly delighted at the opportunity of trying out all the new‑fangled lethal technology it had developed in the ten years since it last demonstrated its capability for mass slaughter in its 1991 terrorist campaign in the Gulf (this was in part a demonstration of its weapons systems for the benefit of potential purchasers, and the same is happening again).
“The AC‑130 [gun ship, which began to be deployed in Afghanistan in mid‑October] is one of the most lethal American warplanes in terms of its ability to chew up ground forces...[and] because of its fearsome firepower. It circles a target and saturates it with automatic fire from three computer‑controlled guns, including cannon and heavy machine guns capable of firing 1,800 rounds a minute. The plane's guns can cover an area the size of eight football fields with a round in each square yard...[and] has banks of electronic sensors on board capable of detecting ground targets normally elusive from the air." (International Herald Tribune, October 17, 2001, p. 1)
A soldier who is prepared to risk his own life when attempting to kill enemy soldiers is a brave man. Such a man is not to be despised. But the design, development, deployment and use of this sort of highly efficient lethal technology is done, not by brave men, but by those willing to slaughter other humans only if their own lives are not placed in danger. It can only be done by people who are either mentally ill, morally depraved or too stupid to understand what they are really doing.
Such machines as the AC‑130 gun ship are just the latest in a long line of devices invented in the United States for efficient slaughter on a large scale, from the Gatling gun (invented about 1862) to the atomic bomb (the two bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki caused more than a quarter of a million deaths and injuries) to the hydrogen bomb (whose capability to cause death and destruction is almost unlimited) to cluster bombs and fuel‑air bombs.
“The [fuel‑air] bomb works thus: there are two detonations; the first spreads a fine mist of fuel into the air, turning the area [about the size of a football field] into an explosive mix of vast proportion; then a second detonation ignites the mixture, causing an awesome explosion. The explosion is about the most powerful "conventional" explosion we know of. At a pressure shock of up to 200 pounds per square inch (PSI), people in its detonation zone are often killed by the sheer compression of the air around them. Human beings can typically withstand up to about a 40‑PSI shock. The bomb sucks oxygen out of the air, and can apparently even suck the lungs out through the mouths of people unfortunate enough to be in the detonation zone. Our military used it on helpless people.” [in the 1991 Gulf Slaughter] (Wade Frazier: My Experiences in America Regarding Iraq)
In early November the Americans began to drop "daisy cutter" bombs on troops in the Taleban front lines. This "daisy cutter" is the fuel‑air bomb as described above. Only a nation sunk in depravity could descend to the use of such diabolic devices against human beings, soldiers or otherwise. The United States thus shows itself to be depraved and barbaric. And any nation which, by providing military support to the American war machine, condones this barbarity forfeits (as the United States has already forfeited) any claim it might have to be regarded as a civilized nation in the eyes of the world. A barbarian nation drags its allies into barbarity also.
Under the leadership of Adolf Hitler the German nation sank also into barbarity (from which it emerged after 1945). One of the defining characteristics of the German Nazis was their willingness to use violence to achieve their ends; not just their willingness to use violence but their willingness to use unlimited violence. As for them, for those who now control the American military juggernaut, there is no limit to the degree of death and destruction that they are willing to use to achieve their ends. This is one reason why they may properly, truly and without exaggeration, be described as "Nazis."
Are these the sort of "leaders" that the American people really want? These calculating, cold‑blooded, racist mass murderers? Are they representative of what America stands for?
Perhaps so. The worship of violence, death and destruction has in recent decades become a defining characteristic of contemporary American society. It appears in its television shows, its video games and its Hollywood‑produced films. It manifests itself in the willingness of its multinational corporations to rape the Earth. America is by far the largest manufacturer and merchandiser on the planet of lethal hardware, of military and police equipment, of machines for the production of death and destruction. This is a sign of a profoundly sick society.
This state of affairs has not come about because the American people are inherently violent and psychopathic. As with all social matters of this scale the historical causes are complex. But one of them is the dominance in American society of corporate capitalism, which elevates shareholder profit above all other concerns, and which has created the social conditions where evil men can attain great power and influence, both within government and without. The American people tend to trust their government and their political leaders (though there have always been those who could recognize corruption in individual politicians when they saw it). This trust is given partly because of the indoctrination Americans receive as children in school but also partly because their government was in fact founded on republican principles designed to ensure their liberty and happiness. But this trust has now been betrayed. When evil men become leaders of the nation this corruption percolates down and sickens all levels of society.
Since the end of World War II, and partly due to the absorption then into the American "security and intelligence" agencies of so many former Nazis (Gestapo, SS and Wehrmacht intelligence), the entire political structure of the United States has been infected with evil. There have, of course, been men of outstanding moral stature, for example, Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr, U.S. Senator George Mitchell and President John F. Kennedy (whose assassination in 1961, probably involving the CIA, the FBI, the Mafia, military intelligence, American supporters of Israel and two future U.S. Presidents, Nixon and Bush Sr., was the first coup d'etat in the history of the U.S., the second being the coup which began with the 2000 usurpation of the administration, a coup which is still being implemented at the end of 2001 under the guise of the "War on Terrorism" and has not yet been completed).
But there have also been corrupt Supreme Court Justices (Rehnquist and Scalia), primitive, blatantly racist U.S. Senators (Jesse Helms), a transvestite head of the FBI who was blackmailed into ignoring organized crime (J. Edgar Hoover), President (Nixon) succeeded by a series of traitors possessing only contempt for the U.S. Constitution (Reagan, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr), along with a multitude of elected and unelected officials (including many judges at all levels) whose only concern was and has been their own power, prestige and material wealth, who were and are ready to support genocidal foreign and domestic policies (targeted at the expendable and the non‑white both within and without the U.S.) as long as there is something in it for them.
But we should not blame only the leaders and official functionaries, corrupt and in same cases evil, though they may be. It is not fundamentally the government which is at fault; it is the mass of the people themselves, who seem to lack the moral sense required of a people who are to restrain their government from descent into depravity.
“Many Americans have consciously prostituted themselves, realizing that the CIA and gang are creating immense death and destruction throughout the world, but as long as they enjoy cheap gasoline, coffee, bananas and tennis shoes, they think it is great...Many in the upper classes think that the CIA, FBI and NSA are great institutions, keeping the chips flowing their way. Those who condone bloodshed and exploitation in the service of their lifestyles, often coming up with highly strained rationales, will create future circumstances where they will find the shoe on the other foot. They will experience what living like a slave is like, barely surviving while their masters live in opulence.” (Wade Frazier: Investigating Possible Conspiracies)
Actually democracy itself, in a nation the size of the United States, is inherently flawed, since it inevitably becomes the tyranny of the majority. As noted 200 years ago by A. F Tyler, democracy leads to the corruption of the financial system of any nation, because voters sooner or later discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury, by electing whichever politician promises to give it to them. In order to fulfill that promise (to some extent at least, so as to be re‑elected) that politician must connive in the acquisition of government wealth by any means available, which in the case of the United States, is mainly the economic exploitation of third‑world countries and of the economic resources of the planet (partly to manufacture weapons of death to sell to those and other third‑world countries for financial gain).
A U.S. politician remains in office basically by stealing (together with his fellow politicians) from the rest of the world to finance the comparatively comfortable (and generally self‑indulgent) lifestyle of the middle‑class American voter (whether Democrat or Republican). The administration’s "War on Terrorism" is a campaign, not against terrorism, but to gain total control of the Earth's economic resources so as to maintain this system of global theft. Without continued capitalist exploitation of the planet's resources the American social and financial system will collapse. But if it persists then we face global tyranny and probably global eco‑death once the fifty billion barrels of oil in the Caspian Basin (following a similar amount from already‑exploited resources) has been extracted, refined and burned, with the major risk of producing irreversible atmospheric heating.
Contrary to the widespread belief among Americans that the U.S. is a constitutional democracy, the words "democracy" and "democratic" are nowhere used in the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution of the United States does not establish a democracy; it establishes a republic.
“...democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” (James Madison, as quoted in Robert Welch's Republics and Democracies)
Democracy in the United States has finally produced a tyranny, with power concentrated in the executive branch of the U.S. federal government and denied to the states and to the people. The other two branches of the government, the legislative and the judicial, have largely become willing tools of the executive, exactly as happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Everything the German Nazis did was legal, either because they appointed corrupt judges to interpret existing law as the Nazis wished or because they enacted laws to allow them to do what they wished to do (as has again occurred in the U.S. Congress with the October 2001 passage of the grossly misnamed "Patriot Act")
“The evils we experience flow from the excess of democracy. The people do not want [that is, do not lack] virtue; but are the dupes of pretended patriots.” (Elbridge Gerry, delegate to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, as quoted in Republics and Democracies)
But actually the executive branch no longer requires a compliant legislative branch to enact laws because it can do so itself, by means of executive orders. The President can stipulate that something is the case and if no‑one in Congress raises any objection within a few weeks (and no congress critter has ever raised any objection to the thousands of executive orders which have been promulgated) then whatever the President has stipulated becomes part of the law of the land. This mechanism of executive orders provides near‑dictatorial powers to the U.S. President.
And George W. Bush has now issued an executive order giving him the legal right to order the killing of anyone deemed to be a terrorist (In other words it appears that President Bush Gives Green Light to CIA for Assassination of Named Terrorists). Interestingly, it seems that although the executive order is presented as applying to foreign "terrorists" there is nothing to prevent it from being applied to domestic "terrorists." A "terrorist" is a "terrorist" whether he is within the borders of the U.S. or beyond. And who's to say a "terrorist" cannot be an American citizen? Thus George W. Bush has now given himself the legal right to order the killing of any American citizen that he chooses to label as a "terrorist." The American Republic has indeed fallen upon grim times.
A tyrannical executive branch of the U.S. federal government, arrogating all rights and powers to itself in blatant disregard of the 9th and 10th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, has now embarked on a war of aggression in Central Asia, having cynically duped the American people (by carrying out a terrorist attack which took the lives of thousands of them and then blaming "Arab terrorists") into believing that this is a just and moral war. It is an administration that is dominated by men who have no moral scruples, who seek only to increase their own power and wealth, who have only contempt for the principles upon which the United States was founded, who are in fact traitors to the American Republic, and who deserve to receive the penalty for treason; and that soon, before they succeed in extending the tyranny which now exists in the United States to encompass the entire planet (or else produce by their actions the enormous death and destruction resulting from another world war, with large‑scale use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons).
If the target of the fourth jet, UA Flight 93, was Capitol Hill then an attempt was made on the lives of members of Congress and their aides, who might thus be interested in asking for answers to the following questions:
1). In view of the $30 billion given annually to the FBI, the CIA and other U.S. "intelligence" agencies, why were these agencies completely unaware (or so they say) of this conspiracy before they saw its results on CNN? And why has this (apparent) incompetence been rewarded with yet more billions?
2). AA Flight 77 (the jet which crashed into the Pentagon) was hijacked at about 9 a.m., at about the same time as the Twin Tower impacts, and its change of course back toward Washington, or its transponder having been turned off, would have been known to flight controllers, who were aware of the impacts; why, then, were U.S. Air Force jets not scrambled to intercept AA Flight 77, when there were U.S. Air Force jets at seven locations normally ready to take off at ten minutes' notice?
3). What is on the flight data recorder and the cockpit recorder from UA Flight 93, the jet which crashed in Pennsylvania? Were there any recorded radio transmissions from this jet just prior to its crash, and if so what were they? Why, exactly, did this jet crash? Was it shot down?
4). "Workers at Indian Lake Marina [six miles from the place where UA Flight 93 crashed] said that they saw a cloud of confetti‑like debris descend on the lake and nearby farms minutes after hearing the explosion that signaled the crash [or the attack on the jet] at 10:06 a.m. Tuesday." (Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Sept. 13, 2001) If this plane was not shot down, but rather remained intact until hitting the ground, how could this debris travel the six miles from the crash site to Indian Lake in minutes when there was only a 10 mph wind blowing? (For wind‑borne debris to travel six miles in, say, six minutes requires a 60 mph wind.)
5). Were the conversations between the pilots of the other three hijacked planes and air traffic controllers recorded? If so, what did those pilots say? Were those recordings seized by the FBI? Were (alleged) transcripts given by the FBI to the mainstream media? Were those transcripts fabricated to provide false evidence in support of the "Arab hijackers" story?
6). Considering that all persons on board all four planes died, how did the FBI come up so quickly with a list of names of the alleged nineteen Arab hijackers; including aliases used by fourteen of them, in some cases seven aliases (see the Atlanta Journal‑Constitution, 2001‑09‑27)? Did they simply pick out all names on the passenger lists which sounded Middle Eastern? Indeed, were those names on the passenger lists at all? If not, why not? Or did the FBI know in advance the names (and aliases) of the "Arab hijackers" on those flights?
7). Why did the South Tower collapse first, 47 minutes after it was hit, rather than the North Tower (which was hit first and collapsed 1 hour and 44 minutes after being hit), even though the fire in the North Tower (the alleged cause of the collapse) was more intense?
8). Would jet fuel burning in an enclosed space (with little oxygen available for combustion) actually produce temperatures high enough (1538°C, i.e. 2800°F) to melt massive steel beams (and all the steel beams, since steel conducts heat efficiently) enclosed in concrete in just 47 minutes? If so, wouldn't the Twin Towers have buckled and bent, rather than collapsing upon themselves in the manner of a controlled implosion?
9). Why were such huge quantities of ash and dust produced? How could fire convert concrete into dust? Has the ash been chemically analyzed to determine what it really is and how it might have been produced?
10). Is it not the case that the Twin Towers collapsed, not because of the airliner impacts and the fires, but because they were expertly demolished (even though we do not yet know exactly how this was accomplished)?
11). Who stood to benefit from the complete destruction of the Twin Towers?
12). In September the Securities and Exchange Commission initiated an inquiry to establish who benefitted from the unusually high numbers of put options purchased prior to September 11 for shares in companies whose stock prices subsequently plummeted, on the supposition that whoever was behind the hijacking was also behind most of the purchases of these put options. Why has this inquiry stalled? Why have those who benefitted from the purchases of these put options not been identified (or at least, not publicly)?
13). Is it not the case that this atrocity was planned and carried out by elements at high levels of command in the U.S. Air Force, the CIA and the Justice Department (possibly with the involvement of well‑placed civilians outside the government), acting under orders from high levels within the U.S. Administration, and that those same elements are now directing a propaganda campaign against the American people to justify a war of aggression in Asia and the Middle East aimed at controlling the oil and mineral wealth of those regions?
14). After the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995, in which 168 people died, and after the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996, in which 230 people died, official investigations on a major scale were initiated. In the attack on the WTC thousands of people died. Why has no official commission been set up (including structural engineers) to investigate what actually happened? (This is different from: Who did it?) Why is there no official inquiry which is asking questions like the questions asked here? Is it because this would destroy the credibility of the official explanation and would reveal the official deception being used to justify the "War on Terrorism?"
The U.S. attack on Afghanistan will, obviously, have major repercussions in the Islamic world. This assault will destabilize the entire region and could lead to nuclear war between India and Pakistan (possibly drawing in China and Russia). It was the declared aim of the U.S. to overthrow the Taleban government, and they succeeded in doing this, but what now? The remnants of the Taleban may retreat to Pakistan, from whence they came. And if so they will be very angry with the government of Pakistan for its betrayal. They still have many sympathizers in the Pakistani Army and the SIS. Has the U.S. considered the consequences of the Taleban gaining control of Pakistan itself, with its nuclear missiles pointed at India? Or will India invade Pakistan to prevent this possibility?
If Bush's "War on Terrorism" is expanded beyond Afghanistan (in particular, to Iraq) it will probably lead to the overthrow of those Arab regimes whose leaders are in the pay of the Americans (in the case of Egypt, to the extent of a good chunk of the two billion dollars per year military "aid"). Will Middle Eastern oil continue to flow to the Western industrial societies and to Japan and to China? What might be the consequences for those countries (especially as regards feeding their people and keeping them warm in winter) if oil supplies are cut off for an extended period of time?
Have America's geopolitical strategists thought this through? Perhaps they have, and see advantage to themselves in the form of the eventual realization of the goal that the Nazis set for themselves in the 1930s: a global fascist dictatorship achieved by the use of military force, and the consequent enslavement of all humans (with those unfit to work being eliminated).
“We ordinary Americans are being led, step by step, down the road to a dictatorship more evil and all‑pervasive than that of the late Adolph Hitler and the Nazi Party of the German aristocracy.” (Sherman H. Skolnick: The Overthrow of the American Republic, Part 2)
And what if the U.S. warmongers achieve their aims of gaining control of all sources of oil in Asia (and the Middle East and North Africa), and of the mineral wealth of Central Asia? Will the Europeans, Japanese and Chinese feel secure in the knowledge that the United States will surely sell them whatever they need to maintain their industrial economies; and their military capabilities? (The Russian and Chinese leaders surely understand the long‑term threat to their national sovereignty, and are acting accordingly.)
Or is there something even more sinister going on? Is the goal "at the highest level" the extinction of the human species? If so, will the American people prove to be "useful idiots" facilitating the attainment of this goal? Or, on the contrary, might they yet awaken from their ignorance, their stupidity, their greed and their egoism, take a hard look at themselves, understand what their lying, vicious, rapacious, hypocritical government is doing in the name of "freedom and democracy," and rein in and reform that government, reconstitute their nation as a republic as the authors of the Constitution intended, and save the world, as they believe (or used to believe) is their manifest destiny?
Egypt Air 990 was crashed in a "test" for the WTC, on Halloween, 11/31/99. Exactly two years ago, the American Halloween, Egypt Air flight 990, a giant Boeing 767 took off from New York bound for Cairo Egypt with 100 Americans and 87 Egyptians aboard.
The takeoff had been successful and routine, but at one half hour into the flight, at 1;48;30; at a moment when the pilot left the controls for a trip to the toilet and the co‑pilot was left in the cockpit alone, an English voice can be heard on the black box recorder saying "control it" The co‑pilot was Egyptian and spoke Egyptian in all of the recording. One must conclude that someone was listening, overheard the captain say he was leaving the cockpit, then gave the order to take over control of the plane, because, the recording indicates, suddenly, control of the plane taken from him, i.e., the cockpit controls were bing overridden. After some seconds the co‑pilot, reacting to his loss of control to a phantom controller, says, the Arabic equivalent of "God help us," "My trust is in God" or "In your keeping, Lord" ‑‑"Tawakkalt ala Allah.")
The co‑pilot then disengaged the auto‑pilot to restore control. Cockpit control was not restored. The co‑pilot again said a prayer when the elevators dropped putting the plane into a dive. After sixteen seconds of this dive the Captain returned to the cockpit asking "What happening? What’s happening?" Captain and co‑pilot were presumably working to pull out of the dive, but the controls were not responding and now the throttles still under phantom control, turned up to full forward, at which point the co‑pilot reacted by cutting the fuel lines. Then, still by phantom control, the right and left elevators each moved all the way in the opposite directions and the ailerons on both wings both went fully up. The pilot cried "Get away in the engines! Shut the engines!"
To which the co‑pilot replied, "It's shut." The last words are of the captain frantically instructing "Pull! Let's pull! Let's pull!" At this point something shut off the instrument recorders (or they were later erased). The American agency investigators, over strenuous Egyptian objections, concluded that the co‑pilot committed suicide!!!???? The Egyptians; who understand the language, insist that suicide is an impossible and absurd interpretation of last moments of conversation recorded or of the earlier conversation at takeoff.
Take that with the news reported by Don van Natta Jr. and Kate Zernike in the 11/04/01 New York Times that according to an F.B.I. official, the prayers found at the crash site "exhort the foot soldiers to be strong in prison."
In the face of this no reasonable man, given the little we know at the moment, could possibly dismiss the possibility that the hijackers, never suspecting a suicide mission, were "stung," by infiltrators posing as leaders with orders from bin Ladin; who gave them the right passwords and instructions setting a non‑suicide attention‑seeking hijacking in motion, but then, when the hijacking was underway these sting agents took remote control of the planes. making turning them into cruise missiles as part of a gigantic geopolitical frame‑up.
The federals shot down TWA 800 which has been proven many times by hundreds of witnesses; the Texas legislature sit back and watched as the Oklahoma City federal building was blown up by federal agents, in an effort to make Christian, Militias, Patriots look like evil people, and turned away the peoples attention from what was happening to them.
Then there is the WTC bombing where both buildings were destroyed; and it has been proven that the planes did not cause the collapse of the buildings, but that charges were planted to help with the destruction and make them implode within themselves like buildings being destroyed by demolition experts, to make way for a parking lot or another more modern building. Oh yes, I can hear you say but we watched the planes fly into the building. But if you will remember a plane flew into the Empire State building but only did a little damage. Granted these planes were larger, but let me see you melt steel with diesel. It can’t be done. Not without special equipment to make the flames much hotter than they normally get. It has also been proven by independent agencies, not federal, that the plans were flown into the buildings by remote control. Impossible you say, well if you will check there has been placed in commercial aircraft for a number of years where the control of the aircraft could be taken over by ground controllers, flown and even landed by remote control
It is even now being exposed that there WAS NO PLANE THAT FLEW INTO THE PENTAGON, that it was a truck. Why would the government lie about that; an event that so many people were eyewitnesses to that say there was no plane. Oh sure the government can produce some witnesses, two or three that there was a plane, but the vast majority of those who witnessed the event, that will not lie and claim they saw a plane have been threatened with everything from jail to death, if they reveal there was no plane. So many of them remain silent about it, but there are a few who will tell the truth no matter what.
There are hundreds of other events that one could name, and still our Texas legislators will do nothing because it might anger someone in Washington or they might not get reelected. Always remember no matter how many times you get elected to the legislature eventually you will lose and then you and your family will be subject to the same laws that you have allowed to be imposed on your fellow Texans. Think about that for awhile. How would you like it if someone carrying some sort of badge broke into your home and killed some of your family? How would you like it if you were driving along and because you didn’t look right, you were stopped and thrown on the ground and someones foot holds your head down, for no reason other than the officer didn’t like the way you were looking at him. You wouldn’t like that very much would you? So why don’t you do something to protect our Texas people from this sort of thing happening?
Since 9/11, we have seen our airports, already cluttered and badly backed up, further incapacitated by uniformed soldiers carrying rifles; supposedly designed to frighten terrorist away, but instead, frightening the citizenry and establishing a precedent for all time of a police state presence in our midst. Worse, these citizen soldiers are forced to leave their jobs; often at the price of financial ruin, not to defend the Republic, but to be displayed as a pawn, by big government that wants to get bigger, all in the name of appearances to make the very ignorant and the very stupid "feel good."
Instead of establishing rigid standards for the hiring, training, and duties of airport security people, the federal government has seized the opportunity to establish yet another huge and totally unconstitutional federal bureaucracy which, in my estimation, will soon be armed by the government because of one excuse or another, to add to the already over 100,000 unconstitutional federal police by whatever names, our government controls.
For the first time since the Revolutionary War, our government has brought foreign troops onto our soil to supposedly protect us from terrorism; a prelude to the planned importation of thousands of foreign troops under the UN banner, to eventually disarm the populace and enslave us under the UN’s one‑world, socialist police state. Of course, they will be "protecting us!” And yet our legislatures do nothing.
Meanwhile, our borders with Mexico not only remain wide open but our politicians; hell‑bent on buying the votes of the millions of illegal aliens already in this country, are actively supporting increased illegal immigration into our nation, of not only hundreds of thousands and eventually, millions of Mexicans / Hispanics but also, Arab terrorist and other enemies of this, once great, Republic, crossing our borders to do us great harm while political correctness and butt‑kissing of Vicente Fox and Mexico remains in high pucker. Even the Mexican citizens who used to be real Texans have become nothing but pawns for the federal government in destroying Texas and think they are doing a great thing.
At any given time, we have hundreds if not thousands of sworn police officers flying scheduled airlines but prohibited from carrying their weapons because big brother has decreed that ONLY federal‑trained and controlled police are, for some reason, capable and/or trustworthy enough to carry a piece aboard a civilian airliner. Doesn’t that make you feel safer?
In spite of the fact that the vast majority of airline pilots came from our military where they have already undergone extensive training in the use of firearms, the government and airlines continue to resist the idea that pilots of aircraft be armed to protect themselves, their passengers and their ships and most certainly denying pilots and citizens their Constitutional Right to carry arms to defend themselves.
Instead of organizing a vast Civil Defense operation, involving citizens in their own safety and defense preparations, our government has taken the stand that only paid bureaucrats can "protect" us and then, only if we are willing to give up more and more of our Constitutional Rights in return for these supposed "protections." Our Texas legislators will not even fund the Texas Guard enough to protect our citizens against a corrupt government in Washington that has gone mad with power.
To that end, the traitors in congress continue their endless screening of appointees for judgeships, selecting only those whom they believe will do the best job of rewriting the Constitution and Bill of Rights through judicial interpretation, to further take away the rights of the people.
Do you feel any safer now that we have "Homeland Security" and all the rest of the "new police state" operations being imposed by federals and our socialist congress?
