It has been another very long spell without a post on this site. One would think I’d be writing about the victory of Donald Trump at the least but no, I haven’t been motivated to do that.
This morning however the incidents at Standing Rock have motivated me. Donald Trump will be just another footnote in the history of the USA but I feel that the incidents at Standing Rock are more important than even the election of the demagogue Trump. Republicans and Democrats will continue to fight each other and try to reverse gains the others have made each election cycle but the Native Americans have had to fight their “white man” oppressors ever since America was still a British colony.
Just in the past twenty or years or so mainstream education – mostly in the universities – have started to admit the truth about the history of the USA regarding the Natives. The ‘White Man’ did steal land, did break treaties, did murder and kill, did commit genocide! And then they pushed these great, ancient people onto land that they thought no white person would ever want.
And so here we are in 2016 seeing the same injustices, the same greed as that which I had previously thought we’d left behind for a time when man wasn’t as sophisticated, wasn’t as educated as we are now. That land that the government back in the 1800s thought no white man would ever want? Guess what, white man now wants it, the militarized police show up and ‘white man’ breaks another treaty! Seeing these images shows me that nothing has changed and it has torn a huge rip in my heart and made me question if I even want to be an American, if I even want to be associated with this country anymore (regardless of Trump). And this isn’t some emotional, stupid proclamation that many Americans do when the election doesn’t go their way and they say they are moving to Canada. Everyone in my immediate family has citizenship in Japan except for me. So it isn’t unrealistic that should America – especially under Trump – continue down a dark path that I might make a play for citizenship in Japan.
America was founded by immigrants who happily renounced their citizenship to a foreign land for a new identity and loyalty to the United States. Yet it is very difficult for the American mind to even conceive that someone might want to give up USA citizenship. It makes absolutely no sense to them.
But regardless of a move as drastic as that, I’m absolutely aghast at how the USA continues to treat the Native Americans and it absolutely warmed my heart to see veterans go and stand with the many Nations that had gathered there. The ‘Red Man’ had fought and been very much abused but look what happens when white veterans show up. A victory is soon won and the government gets the balls to do the right thing.
I am very disappointed that it took Obama so long to give these people the victory they deserved. What happened to ‘Hope and Change?” When I cast my vote for him I was buying into the luxury retail version of ‘Hope and Change’ but instead those shirts now can be found for 50 cents at Goodwill. They were worn often for the first four years, must less the second four years and now are cast aside, faded and torn rags, at discount price for the very few who still believe.
In my 39 years of life, it has been instilled in me that America is “exceptional” as Obama formally proclaimed. Yet, with the events at Standing Rock America is still the same country that abused Natives, it is still the same country that puts Robber Barons in charge of the country, and with the events at Standing Rock and the election of Trump is still a country which combines the two above.
If future historians, a few thousand years from now had to use one or two words to describe America from its birth until the year 2016 then I truly believe those words should be profit and greed.
Love this guy

The success of Donald Trump in the Republican primary is the direct result of eight years of the Republican hate machine. He is the incarnation of Republican ideology in its purest form without any additives or sweeteners. The Republican Party for the first time in a decade is taking a look in the mirror and realizing what they’ve become.
The Donald is a demagogue who peddles straight Republican heroin and as the country is finding out, Fox news has created incredible demand. I had thought that as a country we would be smart enough to not fall for demagoguery but I was wrong; well at least I was wrong for the Republican voting half, it remains to be seen for the overall race.
From what I’ve read Donald Trump will alienate us from the rest of the world if not set us at war with many countries at once. Not only that but he will persecute our own population: Muslim citizens will be registered in a database -who knows how many other groups would follow – and a good part of the Mexican community would be target as well.
Writing these words I am in awe. It feel as though they should belong to a history report for some European or Baltic country pretty much anytime before 1942. And right now, before we hit Super Tuesday there is a decent possibility that it could turn true with the only hope being that the citizens of the USA are smart enough to pick the democratic candidate in the general election. It is all too easy to hold on to this faith, this belief, that the citizens of the USA are smart enough to realize that the path of isolation, war and persecution is the wrong one. That belief however, has been waining this past month looking at crowd after crowd of real people, real human beings that are alive today, waiving Trump signs with enormous smiles on their faces.
What is really difficult to understand is that the majority of these people are Christians. Christianity promotes the opposite of building walls, of going to war. Christianity is about loving and helping each other. I write these words and feel as though I’m writing for a first grade CCD class but know that should these words be said in front of a Trump crowd the speech would get booed and there might even be some aggression.
The whole affair just doesn’t make sense. Just to sum up we have Christians that support war and walls and even though we have more access to knowledge and citizens going to universities than ever before, people are still falling for the same tricks that have been used throughout history to gain quick support. There is a perceived wrong, there is agitation to validate the anger the wrong creates, we all go to war and kill each other until the anger dissipates from complete exhaustion and loss of life; and then we take a break. The historians teach the error of our ways which allowed such loss of life to happen and all the students are glad that we live in more enlightened times and that something like this certainly wouldn’t happen again. And then it happens again.
I read a Time magazine piece on Trump yesterday which was very conciliatory and respectful of the man. It confused me because I still don’t understand why there is not complete outrage about building a database to track certain citizens of our population. That should have disqualified any candidate but instead seems to only have made him more popular! Then to have a respected publication do a piece on him that just might garner more voters I end up completely baffled.
Another of Trump’s promises is that the USA is going to go over to Iraq’s oil fields and take the oil. So, I might have a few facts mistaken but from what I know of history the super short version goes like this: World War One creates various countries in the Middle East out of the remnants of Ottoman Empire. The victorious powers lump tribes and people together that absolutely hate each other. Over time victorious countries continue to meddle in each country until dictators take things over. But the powers that be continue to meddle with the Persian Gulf war, Libya, Iraq war and so on.
Over the past eight years the involvement of the USA becomes more limited which is what the voters voted to do. Now, Trump is advocating that we go back in a big way and everyone cheers. It seems to me that these people cheering are about as intellectually complex as my patio furniture.
The powers of the West have been involved in other countries affairs since boats could first carry an army! I guess my point here is that I’m upset stupid people have the power to elect someone who advocates that we go back to war in a region that has been a mess since the Ottomans went away. Yes, I understand that there are some compelling geopolitical reasons to stay involved but hasn’t meddling just created more meddling? I mean the result has been a complete mess and has never gotten better in almost 100 years of meddling!
It seems to me that this constant tug of war is not going to end and could very well lead to world war three. Nobody would have imagined that the Archduke getting shot would lead to millions and millions of deaths nor would anyone have thought “the world” would again be at war so soon after all that carnage. Just like my schoolchildren example above, it looks like we’re about to all go to war again which will cause future schoolchildren to wonder in amazement how we could be so dumb.
It has been eons since I last posted in the blog. With two young boys all free time is at a premium and so that only leaves the very early morning as free time. In 2016 I’ve decided to change a number of things in my life such as: shedding distractions such as Facebook and unnecessary apps; focusing things most important to me such as family, working out, reading and writing; increased learning as well as meditation.
The time is now 3:58 AM and I awoke thirty minutes ago. After putting away the dry dishes, making coffee and stepping outside to throw away the compostables I noticed how peaceful the world is at this time. The moon has illuminated much in a pale, cold light and I can hear the waves of the ocean which is a half mile distant. To be free of all sounds except the waves amplifies ones own thoughts and they seem to become loud. It feels as though for the first time in a long time you’re alone with yourself and it has been while since you last spoke. I wonder if spending time in a sensory deprivation room would help a person get to know themselves much more efficiently? There was only the sound of the waves outside and this made my head spin – I imagine it would be a very surreal experience to be in an environment with no sound or external stimuli at all.
True to form I’ve gotten off topic and have done so before even beginning! Before I leave the topic of external environments, I’m trying something new as I type this very post. For the first time in a long time I’m using a Mac laptop, am sitting in a recliner and have my TV fireplace as well as Amish fireplace/heater both going to create a nice ambiance in the hopes it will help me write something interesting. I wouldn’t count on it.
If the news were to broadcast, anytime before the year 2000, that all American citizens will henceforth be under government surveillance, there would be mass revolt and a change of government. Over the past decade there have been a number of revelations that we are indeed under surveillance and this has finally come to a head with the government versus Apple over weather or not the government should always have the capability to spy on us.
When I first went to Vietnam one of the thoughts I had was that the Vietnamese government had file folder on each foreigner entering the country. This idea didn’t sit well with me and I was glad my own country, the USA didn’t do such things. Little did I know they do that and with superior technology do so much more. The United States of today is no longer that wonderful place of freedom, righteousness and equality. As I read and learn more I also wonder if it ever was or if it was all just an illusion the education system instills in children; something no different from what our educators would call propaganda and frown upon should it occur in another country. I would go through a number of examples to illustrate this but I think the most potent is this issue of privacy.
We citizens are now spied upon by our very own government. I find this realization incredibly difficult to swallow. All I had been taught about how our country is the exception, the shining city upon the hill was just a dream and we’re just as corrupt and dysfunctional as anywhere else. Our government is actually fighting in the court system for the right to look into each one of our lives. We citizens have in effect become a possible enemy, each one of us, and the government wants to monitor us all.
This is so absolutely chilling that I feel this all must be a dream. How can the USA, the country whose ideals are encapsulated by Superman, the good guys, now be paranoid of its own citizens? It is as though the USA has contracted leukemia and through harsh treatment will leave its body looking quite sickly and weak – if it survives as all.
In fact, things can become much, much worse. Should the government win the right to spy on all citizens I imagine it won’t be but another ten years or so where we’ll all have to report our activities to the government instead of them looking in on us one by one. For a glimpse of the future check out the company Humanize. When I read this I was again astounded and felt as though I was living in a dream. It wasn’t because of what the technology does but that the journals and publications reporting on this company only praised how this would “revolutionize” the workplace and make everyone more efficient! Everyone will have to wear sensors which will deliver “data insights” and “people analytics!” There was no mention of the fact that your employer will now know exactly how long you took a piss, but if you shook once or twice and will call you in to his office if you took the liberty of making a third shake which HR has deemed a waste of company time. This has become expected of companies, we’re all expendable and no matter how much crap about a “company family” is thrown out by HR the only thing that matters is ever higher profits – after all that is the way of the new USA!
What is harder to swallow is that should the government win their case against Apple it is only a matter of time before all citizens will have to wear sensors that beam data back to government databases. Every second of every life will be tracked and do you know why? Well, because there are terrorists out there, and every citizen might be a terrorist and we certainly do not want the terrorists to win now do we!? I can now see every single Republican vigorously shaking their head with an emphatic YES! After all, if you’re not doing anything wrong then why would you need to worry? You SIR, must simply not be a good American!
Going back to my leukemia metaphor it would seem that from the current crop of presidential candidates (except for Bernie Sanders) the USA I used to know and believe in has already died even before treatment. With Hillary and Jeb we are turning into a third world country whose next president is another family member; hello Hillary Peron, great to see you Jeb bin Saud. It does look like the electorate has tired a bit of the establishment but the other options seem to look even worse.
When I read history books I often find it very hard to understand how entire populations fell under the sway of despots and terrible ideas. How could a few million people, people who went to university, who go to church all believe that killing Jews, or invading and killing Chinese is a good thing to do? This should almost be a Seinfeld episode where Jerry goes for coffee, meets Kramer and says, “Hey Kramer, how is your bagel? Good I hope! And did you see in the news that we killed 1000 Jews yesterday? Wow, I sure hope they become a little more efficient as that number seems rather low. Well, I better get off to my spinning class, see ya Kramer!”
And this example really isn’t far off! Using Nazi Germany is so cliche, so let’s go with an image that really stuck out in my head that is along these same lines. It was from a movie – I forget which one – where during WWII Japanese neighborhoods have the patriotic committee or something like that and middle aged housewives wear banners supporting war, go around waiving flags, and knock on their neighbor’s doors to ensure their sons have gone to war and the household is doing everything possible to support the war effort. Middle aged Japanese wife, decked out in her lovely propaganda and with smile on her face basically saying, hey, we need to kill more Chinese, let’s go neighborhood, let’s all be good citizens and do our part, everywhere Japan desu ne!
This all sounds a bit extreme doesn’t it, like something that could only happen in the past when people were not as sophisticated as they are today! Well, let us just switch Chinese and Jews to Terrorist and the Japanese patriotic neighborhood committee to Fox News. There are terrorists all over the place and the USA has to go kill them. Hell, terrorists are so prevalent that each and every citizen of the USA could possibly be one so you all need to be monitored.
Looking at the crop of Republican presidential candidates, everyone one of them thinks that we should be going to war a bit more, that every citizen should be monitored. Trump would also like to implement a database of all Muslim citizens. Yes, first the Muslims, then the undesirables, then we should put them all in camps and so on. And so I look at a good sized portion of my countrymen and I understand how entire populations were able to support bad ideas and terrible leaders. I had simply given to much credit to the intelligence of human beings as a whole. I had thought with the prevalence of colleges and universities that things could only get better! I was wrong. Even advanced, first world societies are not that intelligent on the whole. Sure there are those that did not get a higher education and are easily persuaded but the problem is much more than that. Even those with very advanced degrees are only advanced in that one subject matter whereas they might be quite ignorant on the subject of geopolitics. The man who helped program a robot destined for Mars may believe Megynn (sic) Kelly speaks absolute truth in all things regarding world affairs. It is like when the Jehovah’s Witnesses put a Bio Chemist on the front of the Watchtower which is saying “Hey, she is a smart Biochemist and a Jehovah’s Witness, and so you should be like smart people and become a Jehovah’s Witness!”
I think it might be beneficial to summarize what the Republicans would like:
I think that’s enough for now and as I write them out my brain is screaming WTF??? Christians who do not espouse the value of Christianity are now the NEW Christian!
It is as though I’m watching a tragic comedy with the entire cast unaware of the incredible grand finale which is that Christianity is based upon beliefs that simply are not true! Christianity as demonstrated in the Republican party is akin to a room full of young children debating the facts about Santa Claus. He wears red, but some argue he must wear blue and so in their minds they have a blue Santa Claus and watch Fox news confirming their believe that Santa Claus must wear blue, and ride an elephant, even though if you truly look at him this really isn’t the case; but that doesn’t matter, they have formed an opinion and Santa Claus wears blue and rides an elephant. And the kicker is that even though we have all this debate, and that people have believed in him for a very long time, and there are images of him everywhere, and we all get so excited about him, he really doesn’t exist, the whole thing is fantasy. Well, Saint Nicholas did exist but St. Nick sure does not this resemble the image everyone is now comfortable with and calls Santa Claus today.
And Jesus is white and spoke English you know.
Well, my concentration was interrupted as I’ve had too much coffee and had to go pee for the third time. I think I’ve made my point so I’ll be ending this post/rant soon. I think a good way to sum up this post is with the following.
I had always believed that in the USA good would prevail, that we were the exception and our leaders would do the right thing. I now know how how naive I was. The USA is just a land, surrounded by imaginary borders/lines where groups will continually fight for power. Superman is dead – the Anti-Justice League has prevailed and now fights among themselves and lone good guys like Spiderman and Batman are powerless to stop them. Even if the good politicians win a battle or two the bad guys will always win – they hold the trump card which is that money will always win. If the idea of the USA could be summed up in one word it would now be money. The USA exists to make the rich richer – that is all it is.
I just remembered something else I’d like to say. The success of Donald Trump is the poison the Republican Party has been brewing for the past 8 years in a cauldron of hate and are now being forced to drink themselves. Donald Trump is pure, ideological heroin, unadulterated and without chaser. The mirror has been held up and instead of running in horror there is applause and smiling. War, databases, reduced freedom, no healthcare. I’m reminded of a line from Star Wars where Padme says, “This is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause.”
The decisions the USA is working through today, are going to have a profound effect on what this country looks like in the future. Do we have a demagogue such as Donald Trump for President and start down that path of intolerance or not? Shall I submit my schedule to homeland security every morning such as we do with flight plans? This is pivotal point and I chuckle as it for some reason reminds me of a scene in Scrooge’s “A Christmas Carol.” Daisy has just walked in to Scrooge’s counting house in a brief moment he can either get married to Daisy and live happily ever after or foreclose on her mortgage and doom himself to a life of unhappiness (but will have plenty of money!). He chooses wrongly and this brings me to a later scene.
A lifetime later, Jiminy Cricket takes Scrooge back in time and shows him how he forwent his chance at happiness. Scrooge is rather contrite and wishes he would have made the opposite choice after which Jiminy says “Remember Scrooge, you fashioned these memories yourself!” I wonder if future school children fifty years from now will look back on this time like Scrooge looking in the window. They might be conditioned to tell Jiminy Cricket that the decision to foreclose on the mortgage was the correct one and that by submitting their entire lives to review from the NSA they are being a patriotic citizen and if you don’t do so then you’re a terrorist.
Yes, this is a silly metaphor and hastily written as I sit here in my recliner, in front of the fireplace and have to pee again for the fourth time! But it is true that societies throughout history have often not made the correct choice which has lead to dire consequences. We are at such moment now and the branch of history will soon split into two very different paths, only one of which we will take. Do we go the route of intolerance and surveillance or not? Will the citizens of the USA be able to muster enough support to make the right choices and force their leaders to acquiesce to these decisions?
I don’t know. All I know is that I love the way the full moon illuminates much in a cold, lonely light before the sun has risen. I love the silence and solitude of 4:00 AM out on my patio in warmer than usual weather. I know I have to pee an unprecedented fifth time – what is in this coffee?? I enjoy writing here in this recliner, in front of a TV and Amish fireplace. I feel glad that I’ve finally written my opinions down and I feel sad that XKeyscore will probably flag me for surveillance since I keep a blog like this and have downloaded encryption tools such as Tor and Tails. I’m depressed that our own government is fighting to take away our privacy.
But, I am not a radical, I just like to speak the truth and put down my thoughts in this blog. I’ve become so disillusioned with the way our country is going that I may not even vote in the upcoming Presidential election. All I can do is disconnect from the mainstream, turn off all the noise. I’m saying goodbye to social, to entertainment aka news. Like Agent Smith I want out of the Matrix and the way to do it is by withdrawing from the lobby commons and creating my own world which is closed. I’ll decide who/what comes in. All the notifications, all the social this and that, all the drama, all the noise are shut out. I’ll create a place of calm in my own mind and the physical world around me will be a reflection. After all, does anything really exist until we perceive it?
The American public is tired of the Republican Clown Train (see Rolling Stone article below.) It’s time to go full on Crazy Train people – the ultimate and final destination of American democracy!!! Let’s exercise our full potential people!
Rolling Stone Article – Inside the GOP Clown Car
God Bless the USA political system!
I haven’t been very active with this blog in quite a while except for the occasional post here and there. It is not as though I do not have time, I’d say it is due more to apathy, laziness and most recently World of Warcraft.
When I was traveling overseas, single and studying languages the world was an exciting place and I was bursting with thoughts I wanted to write about. But these past few years the motivation to write is on life support due to two young boys, an overdose of information turned entertainment churned out by the media and I’ve had my fill of inane, uninformed comments about world events on the social media. Over time it seemed much more preferable to spend my time leveling up my Warlock.
What I’d like to focus on in this post is social media and a serious lack of empathy for refugees fleeing war and strife. It is amazing to see how quickly people can become self centered, jingoist and generally unpleasant depending on the nonsense vomited out by national media.
Then we see people like Petra Laszlo – a Hungarian whore kicking and tripping refugee kids! She is the Hungarian version of Anne Coulter two women who – if this was a just world – should be launched into the sea for shark food. These two represent the worst of humanity and rightly deserve the scorn they receive.
The refugees are human beings and through no fault of their own are simply trying to survive and provide a much better life for their families. Should anyone be put in their position we would all do the same.
The way refugees are being treated is something that will be looked back upon with shame by humanity. This type of behavior shows that we really aren’t really better than the animals we are descended from.
Well, as I said my motivation is on life support and I think I’ll end this post now.
No need for a long post here and I certainly won’t try to change anyone’s opinion. I just wanted to point out one small blurb in this BBC article.
“It brings the number of Israeli soldiers killed in the current offensive to 18.
The deaths of so many soldiers on a single day will shock Israeli society, the BBC’s Chris Morris reports from southern Israel.”
The number of Palestinians currently killed in the Israeli invasion as of 7/20/2014 stands at 425.
So if I understand this correctly, 425 Palestinians does not shock Israeli society but any more than a few soldiers of their own killed is shocking?
Seems the media continues to be very pro Israel. I read news from a number of sources around the world and in more cases than not the Palestinians are described as terrorists while that word has never been used to describe the Israelis.
Furthermore, in the opinion sections of most dailies I’ve already seen pro Israel pieces aplenty. Know how many pro Palestinian pieces I’ve seen in the Western media?
Now that you’ve read the above you might think I’m pro-Palestine? I do not support either side. In one quick paragraph here is how I see it.
Israel has a right to exist. The Palestinians have a right to not be enslaved by Israel and create their own state. Israel should quit oppressing the Palestinians and the Palestinians should quit terrorizing Israel. There you have it.
Unfortunately, I do not see things getting any better. I see war for the next three centuries unless another world war redraws the maps again.
Looks like Russia could climb back up to enemy #1 again after a brief 25 year lull. When the USSR fell the attention turned to random, disorganized terrorists who tried very hard to bring down planes full of innocent people,,,, but Russia actually does it.
A leopard never changes its spots I suppose.
I came across this article today and had to comment.
What I find hard to comprehend is that we have more education, more knowledge and more science readily available to our populations today than at any other time in history. Yet, our societies cannot shake free from thousand year old beliefs full of magic, fairy tales, and made up stories (many of which have since been discredited) that make up religion.
Here we have two seemingly intelligent men who have risen quite high in politics. Yet they demand that the UK is a “Christian” nation. They are correct that Christianity took root in the UK and have influenced the country for 1,500 years. In this case the UK is a Christian nation.
But the UK was pagan before the Christians came so wouldn’t it also be fair to say the UK is a pagan nation or is 1,500 years the cut off.
I had to laugh when I read this:
“We are also a very tolerant nation. In fact one of the great Christian values is tolerance and respect for other people, people of other faiths, other views. So I think our Christian heritage sits very comfortably alongside our plurality and our tolerance as a people.”
Yes, if we read the history books we see how tolerant the English are/were of all the countries they colonized. The list is rather long and can be found here. I’m sure all the natives really appreciated the Christian tolerance of the British when they were being invaded and subjugated.
As a consequence of colonization there has been mass immigration to the UK from the colonized countries which certainly hasn’t sat well with the white natives!
It’s not that the conservatives didn’t try to stop it. Just a quick look on Google and I came across one of the most famous speeches against immigration called the “Rivers of Blood speech” . In this speech a conservative member of Parliament tried to warn his countrymen about the dangers of letting in all these colored colonial subjects into the UK!
Well, Enoch Powell was right; this is why London is now called Londinistan.
It seems to me that the demand the UK be known as a “Christian” nation is just a cry to try and hang on to the past, a past when there weren’t very many immigrants, which is what old conservative white men do best. Their ancestors went out conquering other nations and when the mess comes back to haunt them (albeit with a 300 or so year lag) they get all upset about it.
But to throw them a bone, I would say that Europe is vastly more tolerant of immigrants than most countries in the world. Change comes slowly and the immigrants should do their part and try to fit in to the host culture. After all, if their culture is the most important thing to them, then wouldn’t it serve them well to just go back?
If the old white men want to call the UK a Christian country let them do so. With so many immigrants holding other beliefs the UK is actually a multi-religious country no matter what a couple of old Tories say.
It’s just a shame that no matter how the argument turns out, Christianity, while it does have its good parts, is just one more way for mankind is trying to explain his own existence, which like the other religions, is not based in facts.
In the end, these two Tories are simply saying that since the traditional bed time story of the UK has been read for the past 1,500 years it should really be considered the official bed time story and that’s that.
Do yourself a favor. Call me crazy now, before you read the rest of this story. That way, this can be gotten out of the way, because what I am about to tell you, most of the public will not believe.
On September 11, 2001, there were no terrorist involved, as reported by the U.S. Government, in the attacks on the World Trade Centers or the Pentagon.
For those of you who haven’t called me a bunch of four letter words ( amongst other things ), and clicked to another page, let me try to explain.
The false flag operation on September 11, 2001, was a made for corporate controlled mass media event, to shock the public into it’s place, in order to achieve several goals. It was so well planned and orchestrated, that intelligence agencies from around the world, picked up on it as the real deal, and tried to warn the U.S. Government about pending attacks.
After sifting through various information sources for years, trying to make sense of the shocking day, I was listening to the weekly broadcast of KPFA’s, “Guns and Butter”. This show discusses The Economics of Politics. On this particular day, they were featuring screen writer and producer Art Olivier, with his movie “Operation Terror: The 9/11 Story You Are Not Supposed To Know”. After only the first few minutes of the show, with all of the information I already had, I knew that finally a lot of the pieces to the puzzle, on what actually lead up to the events of 9/11, were going to fall into place. If you are looking to watch this video in regular theaters, rent it from the normal channels, or even watch it online: FORGET ABOUT IT. This movie was banned, because it got too close to the truth. Because I am so interested in the subject matter, because it effects so much of the world around me, I found that it was the one of the best $25 investments, I have ever made.
The key to seeing the truth, is the conditioning of the mind. I am never going to be able to counter the overpowering mass media, and the message’s they have to push, with my writings on this blog. It is up to the individual to take steps, to find out how the world they are a part of, really operates in the background. If someone asks me about a starting point, I would immediately direct them to L. Fletcher Prouty’s book, “The Secret Team”. Until one understands the foundation and rogue behavior of the CIA, several things will always be cloudy. And trust me, when I first started to read this book, I felt the author was off of his rocker, and set it down. But after encountering information over the next six months, that showed me that the author knew what he was talking about, I picked the book back up, and read it from cover to cover.
The intelligence community has a term for building a legend for someone. It is called “sheep dipping”. This is done, by taking a designated person who is an intelligence “asset”, and either sending him/her or their “double” to places of interest, on various tasks, to display a desired behavior, to influence the minds of the people they encounter. In a nutshell, they are building a legend for themselves. In the case of the “purported” 9/11 terrorist, one example of this, was the flight school training for commercial airliners. All of the so called terrorist, were intelligence assets, that got paraded around the United States, leaving the trail of a legend built, to tie up the story, in the aftermath of 9/11.
One important main asset that wasn’t paraded around the United States, but served as the figure head, was the very sick with ailing kidneys, Osama Bin-Laden. A very big CIA asset, from the days of the Cold War. This man was being kept alive, through dialysis treatment, at the American Hospital in Pakistan, so he could take the blame. Most likely, this chap has been dead for over a decade now, but that sure didn’t stop “doubles” and fake tapes from showing up, in order to chase him and his supporters, around the world.
Now at this moment, you may be asking yourself: If there were no terrorist, then who hijacked the planes. There was a “hijacking” of planes, but not as the “official” story presented it. The hijacking occurred electronically. Empty planes, that were modified to be controlled as “drones”, electronically “hijacked” the signature of actual flights, before being redirected. Two of the aluminum/fiberglass based planes hit the World Trade Centers, towers 1 and 2, which were built to survive this impact. As most know, these two tower ended up collapsing. This happened along with the collapse of WTC building 7, that had no impact, but contained records for certain sensitive investigations, that the powers to be would love see disappear. In comes nano thermite. A very fine thermite that burns super fast and super hot, that was found in the debris of the buildings. If you paint this stuff inside, along with attaching some remote detonators, then you have the making of a controlled demolition.
The other drone was used as cover before pulling up, for a cruise missile that penetrated the reinforced walls of the Pentagon, a lot better than a aluminum/fiberglass commercial airliner would.
The so called plane crash in Pennsylvania appears to be a prepared crater, where an actual airliner was shot down to provided the debris, but missed the mark. This is still a little fuzzy.
Now at this point, if you are ready to kick my teeth out, to teach me a lesson, please answer this question first: If this was really the work of terrorist, how did they coerce to United State into running about 46 military war games/disaster exercises around the same time, turning some of them “live” in the confusion of the day, in order to pull off the feat?
