You Can’t Handle the Truth

You think you know what’s happening… but you have no idea!

Oh, I can hear the minds slamming shut already. “Not another wack-job conspiracy theory piece…!”

And WHAM! The door of your mind shuts.

Now you can disregard this annoying bit of information and go back to your life, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ve got it all figured out and that there is no reason to clutter your busy mind with any of this useless conspiracy nonsense.

But before you go, let me ask you one question…

How can you be so sure that you know what is going on in the world – or that your views are in fact based on good information?

Do you believe that we can know the truth about the world from reading newspapers, magazines and watching TV?

Ok, let me ask you something else, back in the days of the Soviet Union when it’s press was censored and controlled in an absolute sense by the government, would you say that the average Soviet citizen was well informed? Or was he or she instead the victim of propaganda, fed only the kinds of “news” and information which served the purposes of the Kremlin.

My impression of the Soviet people at that time was that they knew that they lived under an oppressive government. They knew they were being manipulated, lied to, watched and listened to on a daily basis. So what they developed as a people was a facade of subservience. They acted, for the most part as though they were the obedient, loyal, malleable tools of the system – but in private moments, away from listening devices or cameras they were known to express their true feelings about their own oppression and the dysfunction of their country.

Fortunately for us, we don’t live under that kind of system… right?

I mean, we have FREEDOM OF THE PRESS!

Our media have the right to print and say anything they want… so we’re protected from government censorship.

That sounds right… but is it?

If the press can print anything they want, then the first question we need to ask is; what do they want to print?

We assume, for example, that the media is intrinsically interested in pursuing and exposing any and all stories which materially impact the well being of their viewers. We assume, for example, that stories of government corruption and corporate malfeasance would be given top priority, and that editors and producers like nothing better than uncovering political dirt and big business crimes.

This assumption is particularly intrenched in instances where we, the readers and viewers of the news, are being harmed. We believe that the exposure of crimes against us lead inevitably to higher ratings and increased circulation for news providers, which in turn leads to increased profits for their owners.

And we believe – as good capitalists – that this profit is their primary, ultimate motivation.

But what if we’re wrong? What if we have overestimated the profit motive of our news providers?

What if the kind of investigative journalism that we regard as fundamental to our news providers is in fact a very small part of their ratings/circulation/profit picture?

I remember from my days as a paperboy learning that the money that my customers paid for their papers each week only covered the cost of the paper and ink – and that the rest of the costs and any profits made by the paper was derived from advertising.

Today, with our shrinking market of giant multi-media conglomerates each chasing after advertising dollars from a shrinking pool of mega-corporate entities, the importance of advertising revenues – and the cozy corporate relationships that they require – is more pronounced than ever.

Today’s media giants cannot afford to get on the wrong side of their corporate sponsors. So any time that the interests of you, the viewers and readers of their news, come into conflict with the interests of their advertisers, the advertisers win… and you loose.

And here’s where it gets really tricky. Today, those same mega-corporate entities wield enormous political power. Through the millions of dollars that wash through the political class through the corporate lobbyists, political action committees, and now, through the Supreme Courts dismantling of traditional limits to campaign contributions – the same corporations, banks and financial institutions that control the media also control the government.

So now, you tell me, how likely is it that a corporate-controlled-and-corrupted media will report on wrongdoings of a similarly corporate-controlled-and-corrupted government?

This is why there was no media opposition to the globalist policies which enriched multi-national corporations while gutting our domestic job markets. This is why there was no media opposition to the unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan which transferred trillions of dollars to the military industrial complex, destroyed our country’s financial footing and killed hundreds of thousands of innocents. This is why there is no media opposition to the Central-Bank/Federal Reserve and it’s corporate serving free money policies which have debased our monetary system.

We believe, because there is no overt government censorship of our media, that we as a people are fully informed. And that is our fatal flaw.

We believe that if we don’t read something in the papers, or see it on the news, that it’s not really news… not really real.

And because we believe this, those who control the news – what is included, omitted and twisted in their reports –  can control our view of reality.

This is a level of mind control greater than anything which has existed before.

In the Soviet Union, at least the people understood that they were being oppressed, and that their information was censored.

But we, here in the land of the FREE hold on to the outdated belief that the press is on our side – that they’re one of us!

They’re not.

The truth is that our media and our government are controlled by a cabal of corporate and financial interests whose only goal is to consolidate their power over the world. They are evil. They are ruthless. And we are more enslaved by them than we can ever imagine.

None are more thoroughly enslaved than those who falsely believe themselves free.

Can We Talk About 9/11

A bit of disclosure here… I believe that certain powerful entities planned the 9/11 attacks as a “new Pearl Harbor”. That it was a “false flag” attack designed create the specter of a new existential threat to this country which would serve to justify their desired wars for global domination. Our government at it’s highest level is controlled by these entities, as is the media and most of our financial, corporate, military industrial and security institutions.

This has caused some conflict in my life, as most of my friends and family have long ago closed the book on 9/11 and really don’t care to talk about it anymore.

It does not bother my friends and family that the government seemed to know immediately and with great certainty exactly what happened on 9/11. They are comfortable with the official version of the events of that tragic day – a story that was asserted before the dust clouds had even cleared, and which has changed not at all in the 12 intervening years. 

It does not bother them that the twin towers of the World Trade Center appeared to disintegrate to dust in mid-air, that they fell at free-fall speed, or that if they truly fell due to the effects of fire – as the government has claimed – they comprise two of only three steel frame buildings to ever collapse in such a manner. The third building ever to do so is, of course, World Trade Center Building 7 which also fell that same day – again due supposedly to fire – and without the detriment of having a plane collide with it.

In fact, none of the multitude of strange facts, physical impossibilities, unexplainable failures and incalculable coincidences do anything to arouse the suspicions of people like my family and friends.They have simply chosen to believe the official story of 9/11 – and more importantly, to refuse to believe any alternative theories about what might have actually transpired on that day.

In an effort to end the conversation a friend once said to me, “I refuse to believe that the President of the United States could have had anything to do with 9/11″

“How convenient for him”. Was my reply.

But my friend’s attitude is in no way uncommon. The idea that our government could have been behind 9/11 is unthinkable to most people. Inconceivable. That our government would conspire to kill its own people as a justification for war… “No way… I refuse to believe it!”

I understand the reflex… refusing to believe something that goes against everything you hold to be real and true. It’s essentially the same response you can see when someone is told that a trusted parent, friend or neighbor was in fact a cold-blooded killer. Our first response is: “No, I don’t believe it, this can’t be true!”. This is the way we protect our selves from devastating, life destroying news… we deny it. It is only after exposure to hard evidence that we can come to accept that the unthinkable was true, that the person we liked and trusted is in fact a monster.

But the simple truth is that World Trade Center Towers One and Two could not have turned to dust in mid-air and collapsed in free-fall speed unless the entire building – and it’s foundation – was subjected to simultaneous deconstructive forces. The simple truth is that WTC Building 7 – which was not hit by a plane – had to have been a controlled demolition, and could not have collapsed so perfectly and again at free-fall speed unless it’s structure too was subjected to simultaneous deconstructive forces. These are not opinions. They are facts based on the immutable laws of physics and mathematics.

The Pentagon was not hit by a commercial jet. Not only would it have been impossible for a pilot to execute the high-speed diving spiral loop into the building, but the impact site is too small to be a commercial jet. This CNN reporter, describing his immediate, close-up inspection supposed crash site states that there was “no evidence of a plane crashing anywhere near the Pentagon.”

9/11 was a devastating, life-destroying event. But there is no one encouraging us to look at the hard evidence.

The government’s not. They’ve conducted their investigation – albeit it a flawed one, underfunded and only undertaken a full year after the attack  – and then, only on the insistence of the families of the victims of 9/11.

The media is not. They are owned by the same money interests which benefited from the war on terrorism which was ushered in by the attacks.

There is no one out there, acting in an official capacity, who will ever press for an investigation into the truth of what happened to 9/11.

And without the peer-pressure, which in this country is driven by the mass-media, you will probably never feel compelled to investigate for yourself what happened on that tragic day.

So you are free to deny the truth of 9/11.

You are free to believe that our government had nothing to do with it.

You are free to to believe this… but if you’re wrong, you may not be free for much longer.

 

Life Under a Rogue Government

USSwastikaSo here we go again… our out-of-control Government has decided to take out some asshole, former-puppet dictator, ostensibly because he defied multiple warnings and used Chemical Weapons – Weapons of Mass Destruction!! – against his own people!

“This must not stand!”

Let’s not forget that this is the same government who manufactured bogus evidence and LIED TO US about Sadaam Husein’s WMD in their lead up to the Iraqi war. The same government that allowed and abetted 19 dumbfuck terrorists in hijacking four planes as cover for a CIA Black Op that demolished the World Trade Center Towers using sophisticated military explosives.

There is no limit to what these assholes will do to fabricate a justification for war. And it’s not new either. The Lucitania, the Golf of Tonkin, Operation Northwoods, Pearl Harbor… American history is rich with examples where our government has plotted and executed false “enemy provocations” in order to create in the minds of American People the will and consent for war.

Shockingly, it’s not really even about manufacturing consent any more. One upon a time the American the government was wary of an aroused American populace and they expended alot of effort creating plausible arguments for their actions… no more. What they learned from the Iraqi war was that they can lie to the American public, conduct wars of aggression, torture, detain and kill innocent people – and the American people will meekly accept it… Oh well…

So, now if we want to attack Syria, maybe get into a bigger war with Iran, there’s no need to go through the trouble of manufacturing another 9/11. Just have the CIA give Sarin to our terrorist proxies, let them release it where it’s sure to kill women and children, and blame it on your next target… voila, instant justification for war.

And even if many Americans are justifiably suspicious of the government’s story, even if 90% of the country does not want our military to attack Syria, who cares! Our government doesn’t care. They don’t give a fig what you or I think any more. Because they no longer represent us. They now longer work for the best interests of the American people. They work solely for the interests of the elite, the corporate/financial/military/globalist establishment.

So when these asshole masters-of-the-universe decide that they want to destabilize the middle east… when they conclude that the best strategic geopolitical move is to take down the governments of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran so that no viable oppositional governments will be left standing in the region… when they actively risk sparking a much larger war, which would benefit their military and banking interests… they don’t worry about what we lowly citizens might think because they don’t need our consent.

Former president, Jimmy Carter recently stated publicly that the United States is no longer a functioning democracy, a comment that should have been provocative, front page news and the subject of editorial debate… but the elite-owned media ignored the comment so none of us paid it any notice.

But we have to start sitting up and taking notice of these things. Our democratic traditions are dying. Our freedoms are being dismantled. Our political, business, media, business and military interests have been united in a secret, coordinated, hideously corrupt cabal – whose chief purpose is to maintain and increase the stranglehold they have had on the economies of the world for most of the past 50 years.

But these madmen have gone too far, and their once secret ambitions are now plainly in evidence for anyone to see.

We all know all their moves now: their assassinations of foreign leaders, their economic hit men, their debt-induced slavery, their false-flag war triggers, their Petro-Dollar/Federal Reserve world money machine, their Wall Street/City of London/derivitaves ponzi schemes. We know now that every single thing they do is to perpetuate their own wealth and power – and diminish our freedoms and our independence.

The government is not our friend. The corporations, the banks and the military are not our friends, all have betrayed us, all have fallen in with the evil elite. But the worst and most dangerous betrayal of all has been the media. Because we have long believed that they – at least – were on our side, and that they could be trusted to provide a public forum where challenges to our freedoms and to justice could be openly discussed, and through which the alarm would be raised when the tyrants or the fascists began to take charge.

But the tyrants are in charge. The Fascists have taken over.

And there is no one in the main stream anything that will lift a finger to protect us or defend our rights, liberties or freedoms.

It’s all up to me and you.

 

 

An American Apology

Uncle Sam SorryAs an American citizen I would like to formally apologize to the world for the despotism, barbarism, corruption, violence and evil that agents of my government have perpetrated upon the world.

Our bankers have subjected your developing countries to debt slavery. Our operatives have assassinated your leaders when they dared to oppose America’s agenda. We have monopolized the oil trade, subjecting all other countries in the world to the hidden taxation of the petro-dollar system. We have propped up autocratic dictators when it served our purposes, subjecting whole populations to their violence and malign neglect. We have let loose our corporations upon the world destroying local economies and exploiting local workers and resources. We have invaded and occupied your sovereign nations and killed millions of innocent people under the false banners of freedom and democracy. Our CIA has channeled secret funds to Terrorists in order to delude us into believing there’s a threat to our nation worthy of our endless military spending. And they have reaped untold billions as they secretly support the world drug trade and launder the drug lords ill gotten gains through our corrupt banks and financial institutions.

It has become painfully clear in the course of the past decade, that the American Government and its agents are a trauma upon this world, and for this I am truly sorry.

I am sorry, too, that we have been so blind to this dark, nefarious aspect of our country’s leadership, and that we have fallen so meekly for their propaganda depicting our nation as defenders of liberty and justice, while we offer the the world Freedom only to do as the US demands, and deliver our Justice with bombs, drone attacks and bullets tipped with depleted uranium.

Although it is no real defense, I plea profound ignorance. You see, until recently, most of us Americans were under the naive impression that our country’s international ambitions were completely non-aggressive, that we conducted ourselves as an exemplary world citizen with charity toward all and ill will toward none. We persisted in imagining our national character was the same as that of our ancestors who bravely fought a war of independence against Great Britain, or our parents and grandparents whose industry and valor changed the outcome of two world wars. In our minds, America didn’t start wars… we finished them.

Obviously all of that changed. America now starts wars, invades and occupies countries, we conduct ruthless torture and operate killer drones, all without respect to borders or national sovereignty and all in the name of protecting Americans from who… you?

It must be difficult for you to fathom how we Americans could have been so blind to our country’s malignant behavior for so many years. Hell, it’s difficult for us to understand. You see, we Americans still believe that we live in an open society. Caught up in the out-dated notion of  our “free and open press”, many of us still believe that all it takes for us to be fully informed on the major issues and events of the day is to read the newspaper and watch the evening news, so for most of us any news or information that is not covered by the main stream media is by definition either untrue or unreliable.

For example, we don’t believe that there is any corporate control or government censorship of our media because… wait for it… we would have heard about it. The same circular illogic allows us to dismiss all kinds of government, corporate, military, security and financial misdeeds for, after all, it wasn’t in the papers.

And of course we could never believe that there is a hidden power structure in our country which is in fact superior to our elected government. That this group has in fact been running the country from behind the scenes for quite some time. We cannot conceive of how such a secret establishment could ever have amassed the enough power to control of the Financial, Military, Industrial and Security institutions of our country. And since no one has identified these wealthy, powerful and influential individuals, institutions and dynastic families… well they just can’t really exist.

Fortunately, many Americans are becoming aware that our country is no longer the free and open state it once was – that in fact we are living under a system of censorship, surveillance and diminishing freedoms increasingly resemble that of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

I’m not sure how, or if, we can turn this around. The power’s that be are deeply entrenched and we the people are profoundly diminished. But I do feel that the first, necessary step is to admit that we have a problem, and we do… our government has gotten out of control and is now wreaking havoc upon of the world.

I hope you can forgive us our ignorance, but in truth, we knew not what they had done.
