On this Memorial Day, 2007, my heart reaches out to all our warriors, no matter what war, or police action, or occupation they were a part of, whether they were killed, or wounded in psyche, body, or both, or were lucky enough to come home whole and intact.
And my empathy and gratitude go out to the families of all our servicemen and women for all their incalculable suffering and sacrifices. I am filled with awe and admiration for the sincere and selfless dedication of our generations of military volunteers and inductees.
At the same time I am saddened and infuriated at the realization that their most admirable patriotic desire to protect and defend our Constitution and the freedoms and democracy which we have derived from it "from all enemies, foreign and domestic",has been highjacked and coopted by what our moderate Republican president, Dwight D. Eisenhower tried to warn us against, and which he called the "military, industrial, congressional complex", and which many of us refer to simply as "The Corporatocracy"!!!
In attempting to understand this military, industrial, congressional,(and I would add) media corporatocracy, we must determine how this system works, why, and for whom. We must constantly ask, "qui bono?", who benefits? who profits?
The first great U.S. military hero to ask,"qui bono?", was General Smedley Butler. General Butler was one of only two Marines in U.S. history to win two Congressional Medals of Honor.
After he retired in 1931 his soul searching reevaluation of his career culminated in this summary: "I spent 33 years and 4 months in active military service....and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism."
General Butler's reputation as a military leader, and willing "gangland hitman - enforcer" for the Corporate Capitalist Elite, earned him, in the year 1934, a special offer from a cabal of business tycoons lead by Prescott Bush, George W. Bush's grandfather, the Duponts, the Remingtons and J.P. Morgan.
This gang of treasonous usurpers needed General Butler to lead a force of a half million Nazi sympathizers, in a violent coup and fascist takeover of the U.S.Government, deposing President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his regime, replacing it with a U.S. Nazi Government allied with the Third Reich!!
General Smedley B. went along with the conspiracy until he could identify the major plotters - then he blew the whistle. He testified before the U.S. Congress against this "Benedict Arnold Brigade", but "sometimes" money and Partisan Political Ties prevail.
While General Butler was defeated in his bid for a Senate seat, running as a Republican in 1940, ironically the traitor he exposed, Prescott Bush, was elected as a Republican Senator in a later election.
SELF PROCLAIMED RACKETEER.... BECAUSE" WAR IS A RACKET "
"For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it.... I must face it and speak out."
In “Time of Peace,” Common Sense, Nov. 1935, Butler said:
"There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its ‘finger men’ (to point out enemies), its ‘muscle men’ (to destroy enemies), its ‘brain men’ (to plan war preparations), and a “Big Boss” (super-nationalistic capitalism)."
" It may seem odd for a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to.
I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups."
.... "I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for American Fruit Companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on it's way unmolested."
"I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street."
.... " I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket.....I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was operate his racket in three city districts. We Marines operated on three continents...."
"Our exploits against the American Indian, the Filipinos, the Mexicans, and against Spain are on a par with the campaigns of Genghis Khan, the Japanese in Manchuria, and the African attack of Mussolini. No country has ever declared war on us before we first obliged them with that gesture. Our whole history shows WE HAVE NEVER FOUGHT A DEFENSIVE WAR."
....."Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few - the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war."
By the time of his retirement General Butler had become aware of the morally bankrupt system of foreign military entanglement, which our first liberal leader, President George Washington, had warned against, and which he, General Butler,had been immersed in. He, therefore, expressed his contempt and disgust for this system in his short , but incisive book, "War Is a Racket".
In it he describes a racket as "something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."
"Pax Americana Pieta"
acrylic - 30"x40" - 2003
Here, the great French writer, Balzac, would have added his clarifying assertion, "Behind every Great Fortune....is a Great Crime".
Brigadier General Butler described how at least 21,000 new U.S. millionaires and billionaires were made during "the World War","the War to end All Wars",and how corporations across the spectrum, from manufacturers of gun powder, to steel, to clothing,to meat packing, saw their profits multiply by 4, to 8, to 16 times during war years.
From 1898 to 1934, which included General Butler's years of service, U.S. business interests were promoted worldwide by military invasions, and the slaughter of millions in order to subordinate local economies, raw materials, and cheap labor to the desires of the U.S. Robber Barons.
Again, General Butler's military insider's synopsis: "Our boys were sent off to die with beautiful ideals painted in front of them. No one told them that dollars and cents were the real reason they were marching off to kill and die."

THE GENESIS OF US GLOBAL EMPIRE
So during this 36 year period(1898 - 1934), in just one small global region, our Marines attacked one or another of our Caribbean neighbors almost every year. The U.S. Corporatocracy 's enforcers invaded Cuba 4 times, Honduras 7 times, Nicaragua 5 times, the Dominican Republic 4 times, Haiti twice, Guatamala once, Panama twice, Mexico 3 times, and Columbia 4 times.
Frequently the Marines stayed in country as an occupying army to enforce their corporate master's economic policies, often for decades. When they finally departed they typically left the country in the hands of a friendly dictator whom we made sure was well armed in order to suppress his own people.
The idea that our aggressive incursions into other sovereign nations is now or ever has been to "make the world safe for Democracy", or "to spread Freedom", or to liberate a population from the grip of an "Evil Dictator", is a mockery of human intelligence!!!

WAR PROFITEERS' SCHEME - SCAMS
All of our incursions are for the economic aggrandizements of the comparative few, at the physical, economic, devestation of the many.
In every generation we need General Smedley Butlers to warn us against the conspiring of the War Profiteers, with their synthesized provocation scams used as pretexts to get the congress and the population behind their warring schemes. These scheme-scams range from false, manufactured, or secretly enabled provocations, as in the cases of Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin, or the prefabricated account of the incubator babies in the Kuwaiti hospital allegedly dashed to their deaths by Iraqi soldiers; to outright false flag operations as with the blowing up of the battleship Maine in Havanna Harbor, and blaming it on the Cubans, which secured the backing of the Congress and the U.S. population for the "Spanish - American War", which resulted in the slaughter of at least 600,000 Philipine resisters and non combatants; to the Northwoods Plot, signed off on unanimously by the Joint Chief's of Staff, but rejected by President John F. Kennedy, which involved self inflicted "Terrorist Attacks"to kill U.S. citizens on the streets of Miami and New York, to mobilize public support for attacking and overthrowing Castro; to 911, which was a self inflicted wound on the American Psyche; a "masterful psychological operations (psy-ops) maneuver",(ask the "Hero of the Day", Rudy Juliani) down to the very date,911, as in "Call 911...our Homeland Father Protector will save us"!!!
THE NORTH TOWER PLUMMETS AT FREE FALL SPEED
(photo series AP)
They want me to believe the Twin Towers came down due to stuctural steel and its connections failing due to heat from burning jet fuel and after the initial ten minute fuel burnoff office furniture fires.
So the result of these "alleged failures" is total free fall collapse. The culprit agent of this free fall collapse is......GRAVITY. But wait........isn't the force of gravity represented by a vertical vector pointing straight down towards the center of the earth?
What is the ORIGIN of the tremendous force which throws steel beams and whole sections of the tower's external wall structure, each weighing as much as 300 tons (600,000 pounds) 400 and 500 feet...(the length of one and a half football fields) HORIZONTALLY???.....whence came all these massive HORIZONTAL FORCE VECTORS???
This Photograph Shows Sections of the North Tower Exoskeleton Scattered At Distances Of 300, 400, and 500 Feet Away From the Tower. Some Sections Pierced the Roof Of the Winter Garden. Two Sections Can Be Seen Protruding From the 17th and 20th Floors Of the North Financial Center Building....... Over 400 Feet From the North Tower.
Any patriotic American who has been gullible enough to buy into the U.S. Government's official 911 "conspiracy theory" need only Google and watch "911 Mysteries", by Sophia ,"Terror Storm", by Alex Jones, and "The Power of Nightmares", a BBC three part documentary, by Adam Curtis, to realize that to not question the official 911 story, and to not demand an independent investigation into all aspects of the tragedies surrounding that day, would be irresponsible, unpatriotic and morally and ethically, (if not legally) treasonous !!!

I Haven't Heard the Bunkeroidal Coincidentalists Claim the Huge Clouds of Dust Blanketing Manhattan Were Due To An Erupting Volcano.....Although In Their Desperation, This Explanation Could Still Be Forthcoming.
At this point it feels appropriate to go back and interject an article out of Alex Jones' newsletter of yesterday, December 4, 2007:
Ex-Italian President: Intel Agencies Know 9/11 An
Man who set up Operation Gladio tells Italy's largest
newspaper attacks were run by CIA, Mossad
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, December 4, 2007
Former Italian President and the man who revealed the
existence of Operation Gladio Francesco Cossiga has
gone public on 9/11, telling Italy's most respected
newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and
Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst
global intelligence agencies.
Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in
July 1983 before winning a landslide 1985 election to
become President of the country in 1985.
Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one
of a rare breed - an honest politician - and led the
country for seven years until April 1992.
Cossiga's tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian
political establishment and he was forced to resign
after revealing the existence of, and his part in
setting up, Operation Gladio - a rogue intelligence
network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings
across Europe in the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Gladio's specialty was to carry out what they coined
"false flag operations," terror attacks that were
blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.
Cossiga's revelations contributed to an Italian
parliamentary investigation of Gladio in 2000, during
which evidence was unearthed that the attacks were
being overseen by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.
In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra
stated, in sworn testimony, "You had to attack
civilians, the people, women, children, innocent
people, unknown people far removed from any political
game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the
public to turn to the state to ask for greater
Cossiga's new revelations appeared last week in
Italy's oldest and most widely read newspaper,
Corriere della Sera. Below appears a rough
"[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Qaeda
September [attack] to the two towers in New York
[claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11,
while all the [intelligence services] of America and
Europe ... now know well that the disastrous attack
has been planned and realized from the CIA American
and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in
order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and
in order to induce the western powers to take part ...
in Iraq [and] Afghanistan."
Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9/11 in 2001,
and is quoted in Webster Tarpley's book as stating
that "The mastermind of the attack must have been a
“sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not
only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly
specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not
be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and
flight security personnel.”
Coming from a widely respected former head of state,
Cossiga's assertion that the 9/11 attacks were an
inside job and that this is common knowledge amongst
global intelligence agencies is highly unlikely to be
mentioned by any establishment media outlets, because
like the hundreds of other sober ex-government,
military, air force professionals, allied to hundreds
more professors and intellectuals - he can't be
sidelined as a crackpot conspiracy theorist.
(article ends here)
As an afternote I would surmise that if what
William Colby, former CIA director, is reported to
have stated, (approximately) "Every important member
of the U.S. media is owned by the CIA", is true, all
the more reason the information in the above account
will never see the light of day in the major
media....whom do you suppose this 911 instigating rogue element works for?
The Mossad's motto, "By deception thou shalt wage
"Juliani, Bush and Putaki....Three Reptiles Shedding Crocodile Tears"?
Juliani warned people to stay clear of the Towers and later Building 7 because they were going to collapse. How did he know this when a steel frame skyscraper had never collapsed before due to plane crash and/or fire....even fires extending over many floors, and raging for 18 hours and more???
Consider the concerns of these dedicated Patriots:
What US Army Intelligence Colonels, Executive Dir.
Natl. Security, US Army Intel. Commander, Members
Natl. Security Agency, Dir. Space Programs and 20
other high ranking military officers have to say;
The article details severe criticism of the official
account of 9/11 by:

Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, former staff

Lt. Col. Robert Bowman, PhD, Director of Advanced

Ford and Jimmy Carter
And 20 other officers
The terrible events of 9/11 have been used to justify
two invasions of foreign countries and unprecedented
repression of fundamental American rights at home.
Yet, these officers say the official government
account of this watershed event is false. It is
imperative that 9/11 be reinvestigated so that the
whole truth about this matter is revealed.

WHO ARE THE BENEFICIARIES OF 911?
Again we must ask, "cui bono?" Who profits from 911? In the year 2000 the NeoCon Manifesto, "Project for a New American Century", within the chapter "Strengthening America's Defenses", clearly states that getting the backing from the Congress and U.S. public for the large military buildup and subsequent takeover of the oil rich Middle East and Caspian Sea Basin would be a long and drawn out process "absent a catastrophic and catalyzing event like a 'New Pearl Harbor' ".
So a year later, walla....911!!! Church Lady could have summed up the tragedy and the Bush-NeoCon reaction with her patented, "Well, how conveeeeenient!!" And that it was for our coveters of unchallengeable hegemonic U.S. Empire, and Israeli dominance in the Middle East, the Zionist NeoCon-men.
Are these Neo Conservatives: Cheney, Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith, Libby, Huntington, Woolsey, Luti, Kristol, Shulsky, etc., truly conservative? Heavens no. They are disavowed by most traditional Goldwater conservatives as extremist rightwing reactionary, militarist, imperialist, Chicken Hawks.
What are we dealing with in this Bush-Cheney, Zionist NeoCon regime? What are their short and long term goals and what are the means they can be expected to employ? First, where does their ideology originate?
THE NEO CON IDEALOGUE AND GURU
Leo Strauss, the patriarch of the current neo conservative movement, dreaded what he considered the inevitable drift of mankind toward the condition of the "universal and homogeneous state". For Strauss and his compatriots this condition might bring the "threat" of a world in the throws of peace, progress, and prosperity.....where "war and nihilist revolution may be the only great and noble deed that is possible..."
When we delve into his gestalt, we find that he and his disciples feel satisfied only when they can be the agents of ferment - the agent provocateurs. They were happy in their ivory towers overseeing a forty year "Cold War" which encompassed many bloody hot wars,which they were always able to avoid except in their characteristic role as instigators and cheerleaders.

To Strauss and the reactionary cabal of elitist intellectuals who emerged from his teaching and philosophical influence at the University of Chicago, periods between widespread unrest, global bloodbaths, or local uprisings are merely periods of stagnation and boredom.
How can real men, after all, be fully human, exhibiting their noble and gallant natures, in the absence of campaigns of revolt or reform, which require conquest and subjugation, or for the victimized , risking all for the avoidance thereof?
Critics of the Neo Cons might admit that humans engaged in primitive, reptilean brain activities of fight or flight do not always lose their more sane human attributes of empathy, compassion, forgiveness, etc. And of course, the ennobling human virtues of courage, loyalty, physical and psychic strength, focus of purpose, etc., all of which the Straussians would honor and applaud, are often abundantly present and undeniable in the daily life of the warrior. However it also seems worthwhile to acknowledge the great value to our nation and to the world of the virtues of ; first facing up to, and then bearing witness to certain painful truths; then subsequently exhibiting tremendous valor under attack, as in the case of patriots like our great whistleblowers, General Smedley Butler and President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
And what were the painful truths that these great men realized, faced up to, and bore public witness to, under the certainty of harsh rebuke? The truth that every God forsaken war we have been involved in, every police action, every occupation, has not been to fulfill what General Butler called "the beautiful ideals painted in front of"our warriors - you know, like spreading freedom and democracy, to further "Our National Interest", to protect against Communist aggression, to fight terrorism, to depose evil dictators, etc.,etc.,etc.

No Ms. Anne Colterd, the Excorsist like projectile vomit you and your ilk ( including, of course, the Barbarian, Savage, Handy, O'Riled Up, Limpecker Brothers ), spew out about how liberals are traitors for not supporting every misbegotten war this Fascist Corporatocracy has lied and tricked us into since 1898 and before, is no more or less than the projection of your own traitorous abandonment of the truth - that you must be aware of (you are not totally stupid, and if rumors are true, that you are decent and personable in private, I direct my comments to the utterly vile and ignominious persona you present in public to please an ignorant, bigoted, audience of mental and moral devolves....to "shock and awe" and titillate...and sell books!)
No, the real reason for all our military and/or economic incursions have been to satisfy the insatiable greed and lust for power and dominance of the ruling hierarchy of amoral Oligarchs, Plutocrats, Corporobots - Sociopaths all.....devoid of conscience. And who better to serve this class of deficient, devolved pomp, than the fawning NeoCons, the Palace Pimps, unencumbered by the mitigating qualities of compassion, or justice, or remorse, that reflect the possession of that invaluable, and essential humanizing faculty, we call the conscience.
BEREFT OF CONSCIENCE ?
In his final memoir, the late, great Kurt Vonnegut observed that "George W. Bush has gathered around him...most frighteningly, psychotic personalities, or PPs, the medical term for smart, personable people who have no consciences."
The reason that Mr. Bush and his NeoCons have no qualms over the millions of lives they have destroyed in the false flag 911 psy-ops tactic, and the subsequent wars which 911, the "New Pearl Harbor" enabled them to pursue, is that they are bereft of conscience. Therefore they don't feel or care about the devestation and pain they have wrought.
Referring to what he calls the classic medical text on PPs, "The Mask of Sanity", Vonnegut states in his "Custodians of Chaos" piece: "Some people are born deaf, some are born blind or whatever, and this book is about congenitally defective human beings of a sort that is making this whole country and many other parts of the planet go completely haywire nowadays. These are people born without consciences, and suddenly they are taking charge of everything."
acrylic on canvas - 48"x 60"
"PPs are presentable, they know full well the suffering their actions may cause others, but they do not care. They cannot care, because they are nuts. They have a screw loose!"
Dr. Martha Stout Ph.D., in her book entitled, "The Sociopath Next Door", describes the sociopath" (or psychotic personality) "as being born with a "limiting neurological glitch", which causes a "significant aberration in their ability to process emotional information at the level of the cerebral cortex."
Heritability studies show that the neurobiological causes of the "core personality features of sociopathy are as much as 50 percent heritable."
Since "neither childhood abuse nor attachment disorder seems to account for the environmental contribution to the loveless, manipulative and guiltless existence" of the sociopath, maybe the 50 percent causal input unaccounted for, involves some interaction between the faulty neurological wiring of the sociopathological individuals and the larger society in which they reside.
Research shows that East Asian countries - notably Japan and China exhibit only at most, about one thirtieth as many cases of sociopathy per capita as do Western nations.
Could it be that the countries whose cultures stress social interconnectedness - where every member is imbued from birth with a psychological immersion in the larger collective of selves that go to make up their tribe, community and finally nation, promote a cohesive, pro social behavior ?
" In contrast with our extreme emphasis on individualism and personal control, certain cultures, many in East Asia, dwell theologically on the interrelatedness of all living things. Interestingly, this value is also the basis of conscience, which is an intervening sense of obligation rooted in a sense of connectedness."
Since research evidence shows that the sociopathic form of congenital anomaly is no more prevalent in the Western societies than in the East, what could account for the fact that 1 out of 25 U.S. citizens, 4% of the population, exhibits the characteristics of the psychotic or sociopathic personality disorder, while only .03 to .14% of Taiwanese citizens exhibit these same character failings?
I would posit that the laizes faire, "free market" gestalt that permeates every aspect of Western Society, with its tell tale slogans defining our economic and social interactions, you know, like "law of the jungle", "survival of the fittest", "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps", "personal responsibility", "self made man", "every man for himself", "I got mine, screw everybody else", is the ethos in which the sociopathic seed finds fertile ground.
My God, even our Supreme Court decisions sometimes reinforce unethical, immoral, anti social behavior......ironically, often under some pretext of protecting first amendment rights.
Two cases in point would be the declaration that money contributed in large amounts,(currently in large "bundles") to political campaigns constitutes "free speech", when what we are dealing with in the real world, is legalized bribery, plain and simple.
But how else does the Corporate Oligarchy maintain control while keeping up the appearances of a functioning democracy?
When our Supreme Kangaroo Court recently decided that Fox "News" Channel is free to intentionally lie, obfuscate, and deceive, under the rubric of protecting free speech, we witnessed these robed dunces acting in their capacity as full blown Corporate Oligarchy Lackeys par excellance.
Of course, the most egregious and destructive Supreme Court decisions were those handed down validating the (intentional?) "clerical error" in the 1880's that elevated the corporation to the status of human personhood - with all the rights thereof (but few of the responsibilities).
And when any honest, thinking person can see that the corporation is no more than an amoral robot, programmed to maximize profits for the cling on, parasites, called shareholders, while ignoring the needs and rights of the STAKEHOLDERS (THE HUMANS AND ALL LIFE FORMS EFFECTED BY THE CORPORATE ACTIONS AND PRACTICES, FROM THE CLOSE VICINITY TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY TO THE WATERSHED, TO THE REGIONAL ECOLOGY TO THE GLOBAL ECOLOGY) it becomes easy to trace the history of abuse of power by succeeding generations of sociopathic bribers and bribees among CEO's and government overseers and regulators, trading places through the inertial momentum of the revolving door merry go round.
If all the signs are correct, we are on our way toward, not a One World Government evolving from a U.N. style prototype, feared by the 20th century right wingers, but rather a World Trade Organization spawned Economic "New World Order" ruled over by 2 or 3, or 5 or 10 huge, monopoly based, global corporations with their private armies and private police (THE WET DREAM COME TRUE, FOR THE GREAT MARRYERS OF GOVERNMENT AND UNREGULATED BUSINESS - MILTON FREIDMAN, AYN RAND, BENITO MUSSOLLINI, ADOLF HITLER, RONNIE RAY GUN, ALAN GREENSPAN, G.H.W.BUSH, BILL CLINTON, G. BEELZEBUBBADUBYA BUSH) that's whom we'll all live under. Not to have fought to the death for true Democracy, our ultimate human blunder......
If we aspire to avoid this sorry condition - a 21st century UNIVERSAL CORPORATE FEUDALISM, we will need to somehow avoid being duped, hoodwinked, and bamboozled by sociopathic "good old boys" - you know, the disarming, charismatic, phony religious actor, corporate lackey types.
And since private prisons can fill their profitable beds with inadept sociopaths - the kind that get caught; and since the corporate oligarchy needs CEO's and political "leaders" with no moral or ethical constraints (no functioning conscience), and the Pentagon as well as other security organs always need cold blooded sadistic torturers and Blackwater style mass murders, don't expect to see the ruling class sponsor programs to keep sociopathy in check. THE FRUITS OF SOCIOPATHY..... WAR AND TERRORISM, AND CRIME AND EXPLOITATION AND A SWEATSHOP BASED, WAGE SLAVERY ORIENTED ECONOMY, ARE TOO PROFITABLE!!!!!!!!!
If we ever do take seriously the goal of alleviating the increasing psychic sickness which is manifesting in the symptoms of sociopathy, we must recognize that "from the Wild West of the past to the corporate outlaws of the present, American society seems to allow and even encourage me - first attitudes devoted to the pursuit of domination."
According to Robert Hare's analysis, "our society is moving in the direction of permitting, reinforcing, and in some instances actually valuing some of the Psychopathy Checklist - traits such as impulsivity, irresponsibility, lack of remorse."
Other theorists join him in proposing that "North American culture, which holds individualism as a central value, tends to foster the development of antisocial behavior, and also to disguise it. In other words, in America, the guiltless manipulation of other people 'blends' with social expectations to a much greater degree than it would in China or other more group centered societies."
In the Eastern interrelatedness based societies, even though the born sociopaths are deprived of the internal functioning awareness that they are connected to others, their culture consistently fosters the principle that they are so connected. Whereas in Western culture, our innate sociopaths are perpetually conditioned to relish their ability to act guiltlessly in their own self interest as the ultimate desireable advantage.
The thick, fine dust permeated every space for a radius of several city blocks. This typical scene shows merchandise in a Brooks Bros. clothing shop covered and saturated with the noxious particles.
It is therefore futility for a Western family to attempt to redeem a born psychopathic personality disorder member. There are too many outside influences encouraging his self serving disconnected - island - look out for number one - mentality.
And who are the Psychotic Personality (PP) "crazies" Mr. Vonnegut refers to, who hold sway over our world? I would place the 911 NeoCon suspects holding dual citizenship with Israel in this category. In exposing my perception of these hyper Zionists, I do so in the voice of a "self loving Jew." One who loves and admires the culture, character, and positive history and accomplishments I am connected to by blood, though not by upbringing.
I revere the great representatives of Jewish lineage, from Allen Ginsberg, to Rabbi Abraham Heschel, to Albert Einstein, to Itzak Pearlman, to Leonard Bernstein, to Naomi Klein, to Daniel Ellsberg, etc., etc., etc. Plus the many normal everyday type Jewish people I have encountered.
But when it comes to the Zionists, I view them the way I imagine any peace loving, justice seeking, Sicilian views the Mafia ! The Zionists are to the Jewish people as the Neo Nazis and Ku Klux Klan are to the American people.
When one discovers the number of high powered dual citizenship Zionists existing in the upper positions of power in the US Government one is led to ask whose interests, Israel's or the United States', are uppermost in their minds?
This is how Elliot Abrams, convicted Iran - Contra felon, who has the blood of 30,000 Nicaraguans on his hands, and who holds dual citizenship with Israel, put it in his book, "Faith or Fear", written in 1997: "There can be no doubt that Jews, faithful to the covenant between God and Abraham, are to stand apart from the nation in which they live. It is the very nature of being Jewish to be apart - except in Israel - from the rest of the population."
Thick coating of dust from the pyroclastic cloud - unheard of in a gravitational collapse due to, for instance, an earthquake. This fine talcum powder like dust is characteristic of extremely violent explosive events such as volcanic eruptions and controlled demolitions.
Dr. Steven Jones Ph.D., of Brigham Young University, verified the existence of thermite and thermate microscopic spheroidal residue within the dust.
Thermite and enhanced thermite - thermate, are explosive charges which reach temperatures approaching 5000 degrees F. - slicing through steel like a red hot knife cutting through butter.
These are the 9/11 suspects holding dual citizenship with Israel, noting their positions as of 9/11/01: Paul Wolfowitz - Deputy Secretary of Defence on 9/11; Richard Perle - Chairman of Defence Policy Board; Douglas Feith - Defence Dept. - investigated for spying for Israel; Dov Zakheim - Pentagon comptroller when between $2,300,000,000,000 and $3,300,000,000,000 ($2.3 & $3.3 trillion) went missing on 9/10/01; George Tenet - Director of CIA; Michael Chertoff - Assistant Attorney General on 9/11 - likely Mossad agent; Marc Grossman - Under Secretary for Political Affairs on 9/11; Philip Zelikow - Led the 9/11 Commission and wrote the report ( cherry picking issues, evidence and conclusions); Ari Fleischer - White House spokesman for Bush on 9/11; Elliot Abrams - Former PNAC (Project for a New American Century) member - National Security Council; Lewis" Scooter " Libby - Former PNAC member - aid to Cheney; William Kristol - PNAC co-founder - adherent of Leo Strauss; Henry Kissinger -originally chosen to lead 9/11 Commission - sat on Defence Policy Board.
Another list, although very incomplete, of principle 9/11 suspects, who are publicly known as supporters of Zionism or Christian - Zionism, or are Israeli citizens includes: George W. Bush - President; Dick Cheney - Vice President; John Ashcroft - Attorney General; Condoleeza Rice - National Security Adviser (on 9/11) - as Secretary of State refused to call for a halt to Israeli bombing of Lebanon; Jack Abramoff - Entertained USG "terrorist" patsy, Mohammed Atta on his yacht just before 9/11/01; Rudolph Giuliani - Mayor of New York; John Deutch - Former Undersecretary of War, Director of CIA, ran Zionist Federation of Belgium; Ashton Carter - Co- authored paper, "Catastrophic Terrorism: A National Policy", with Zelikow and Deutch; Daniel Lewin - Orchestrated activities of Mossad agents in USA before 9/11; Dominic Suter - Mossad agent, employed the 5 Mossad agents caught celebrating in New York on 9/11; Larry Silverstein - Close friend of Benjamin Netanyahu - both were in NY on 9/11 and London on 7/7; Jules Kroll - Founder of Kroll Corporation, the company in charge of "security" at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01; Benjamin Netanyahu - Former Israeli Prime Minister - said 9/11 was "good for US - Israeli relationship!"
These are the"congenitally defective human beings of a sort that is making this whole country and many other parts of the planet go completely haywire nowadays. These are people born without consciences, and suddenly they are taking charge of everything", that the late Mr. Vonnegut was referring to.
Is it worth noting that George W., as a boy, enjoyed exploding frogs by sticking firecrackers down their throats. Did this sadistic tendency flower into his seeming enjoyment at mocking the last hour pleas of

"fellow Born Again Christian", Karla Fay Tucker when he rejected clemency, as governor of Texas? Did the lack of a conscience in both Governor George W. Bush and his Attorney Council, Alberto Gonzales, make it easy and enjoyable to deny clemency to 152 cases that came before them, allotting only a few minutes cursory review for each "dead man waiting". More than a few, if not many of these were innocent, and therefore, examples of a Kafkaesque justice system, certainly unworthy of a U.S. jurisprudence which brags equal justice under the law. As with any commodity or service in this free (licentious) market system, the quality of justice meted out is in proportion to what a defendant can afford to pay legal representation. You will never see an O.J.Simpson or a John Gotti face a death penalty.
In the retrograde U.S. Justice system where even the Supreme Court is stacked with Fascist Corporobots like the recently departed Rehnquist, his contemporaries Scalia and Thomas, the new members Alito, and Roberts; and where Rehnquist, Scalia and Thomas were and are disciples of Hitler's lawyer, Carl Schmidt; you'd better have a lot of paper dead presidents to draw upon or a clear Corporate agenda if you want to receive a fair hearing. And in George W. Bush's Texas a favorite court appointed defense lawyer for a poor defendant in a murder trial would be one like Ron Mock,( a lawyer with a perfect name, when your program's m.o. is to mock justice.) From 1987 to 2001, sixteen out of nineteen of his clients went to death row after he had typically feigned their representation. One of these, Gary Graham, aka Shaka Sen Kofa, who was almost certainly innocent, had his petition for clemency summarily rejected by this troglodyte twosome of George W. Bush and Alberto,"Torture Boy", Gonzales.
BUSH LEAGUE PLAYERS TRAIN FOR MAJORS AS PETTY FASCIST INTERNS IN TEXAS !
If George Beelzebubbadubya Bush and his supporting cast of fellow sociopaths, Carl Rove and Alberto Gonzales were blossoming as petty fascists during their Texas governorship, by the time they had stolen two presidential elections by ever expanding fraudulent means, teamed up with the crypto - nazi NeoCons, pulled off the biggest, most audacious false flag operation of all time (911), lied the country and the world into two wars, eviscerated the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and our International Treaty obligations, spied on citizens illegally and tortured and disappeared thousands, they were in full bloom as the "Imperial Dictatorship in waiting."
O.K., so waiting for what??? A Super Mafia Gang like this is not waiting for Godot, that's for sure. So what are they waiting for??? It's the summer of 2007; the Iraqi occupation is going more and more sour....even for the Republican loyalists. Bush's poll ratings are in the high twenties and Cheney's are in the low teens. Mr. Bush signed "Presidential Directive 51" this past spring. This Directive, like Herr Hitler's Enabling Act, give's Fuhrer George total Unitary, autocratic power, dissolving the balance of powers laid down in the Constitution, giving him total authority over all three branches of our government. Ostensibly for this directive to kick in, there needs to be a triggering event, like a terrorist attack or a natural catastrophe, like a Hurricane Katrina. But even the triggering event is declared to be at Beelzebubbadubya's discretion (pleasure).
So, for the small percentage of the citizenry who are aware of the dire circumstance we find ourselves in, we just sit, waiting, waiting, paralyzed as in the dream I have experienced many times throughout my life; ya know, where you know you are dreaming, but you feel paralyzed since your last exhale and you know you have to, by force of will, take a deep breath....but you can't because your autonomic breathing function and your will are paralyzed for what seems like minutes, until finally your panic forces you to a point of conscious awakeness whereby you can willfully gasp for oxygen.
These are the stages of consciousness we are surrounded by. Most of the population are fast asleep and dreaming as on a holiday morning. No need to wake up - might as well dream of those dividends coming in or of making love to that fantasy person, or of going shopping in that post rapture shopping mall in the sky. Some of the citizenry are waking up to a life as carefree as their sweetest dreams, completely unaware of what the 4th Reich has in store for them; totally undisturbed by the devastation and desperation their government, at the behest of the Zionists, the arms dealers, the war profiteers of all types, and the generic Ruling Class, is visiting upon the Iraqis, the Afghanis, the Palestinians, the Lebanese, and their neighbors, including the Iranians, (clandestinely at this point), the Somalians, the Haitians, and a couple BILLION more of our brothers and sisters around the world whom our "free trade" treaties have enslaved........along with the World Bank 's trickery of forcing the poor of countries to work as slaves to pay back debts run up by their corrupt leaders, conspiring with the lender's (typically the World Bank or IMF, kept anonymous and not legally liable by surrogate, "front" corporations) represented by "economic hit men", as described in "Confessions of An Economic Hitman", by one of same, turned whistleblower and author, John Perkins.
Then, there are those of us who are straining our wills to overcome the paralysis of sleep, that prevents us from inhaling the life sustaining oxygen of commitment, dedication, courage, and Agape.
WILL ANOTHER VULCANIZED FALSE FLAG FEAR BOMB WORK ?
We realize that we can't just wait for the "other shoe to fall". The Vulcans, (this moniker taken by the NeoCons for themselves is so appropriate for it is taken from the Greco - Roman God of volcanoes and fire. If we look at the videos of the 911 defining moments, and therefore the NeoCon defining moments, we see each tower explode from the top, and plummet down at free fall speed, like descending Volcanoes)....as described by eye
"911 Timelapse Series - Dawn To Dusk"

witness, Gary Gates, Lieutenant, (F.D.N.Y.).... "I looked up and the building exploded, the building we were very close to, which was 1 tower. The whole top came off like a volcano. So now both towers have been hit by a plane. The north tower was burning. So the explosion, what I realized later, had to be the start of the collapse. It was the way the building appeared to blow out from both sides. I'm looking at the face of it, and all we see is the two sides of the building just blowing out and coming apart like this, as I said, like the top of a volcano." These audacious Vulcans are certainly planning a triggering event......a second 911, a third Pearl Harbor, a third Reichstagg fire, in order to activate Bush's unitary, autocratic rule, martial law, and a permanent Fourth Reich....!!!

Do the American people, and their Congress and Military, who take Sacred Oaths to defend the Constitution from all enemies "foreign and DOMESTIC", love and revere this Constitution, and the Democracy and Freedoms which flow from it enough to do whatever it takes to assure it's endurance???........Stay tuned!
So why this fascination with war, and rape, and plunder, and terror, and where does it find it's genesis in the Neo Conservative movement? Well from a pragmatic viewpoint, it works! There is nothing like fear of terror and attack to get a population to back a voracious war mongering leader.

"THE PEOPLE CAN ALWAYS BE BROUGHT TO THE BIDDING OF THE LEADERS"
Herman Goring, Hitler's Luftwaffe Marshal, explained the strategy very succinctly: "Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.......Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the Pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

So it's no surprise that the NeoCon - men are employing formulas tried and proven by the Third Reich. Their Patriarch, Leo Strauss, was inspired and motivated by Friedrich Nietzsche, who was also Adolph Hitler's primary inspirational motivator. But what was so compelling in Nietzsche's philosophy that drew both Hitler and Strauss to him? Almost certainly it was Nietzsche as the glorifier of hierarchy, slavery, violence, war, and terrorism that attracted these two elitist egomaniacs to his teachings.
Following in Nietzsche's ideological footsteps, Strauss and his NeoCon disciples express a contempt and hatred for the middle class, family life, and the goal of economic security and its accompanying leisure time; the leisure time absolutely essential for the flowering of art, music, culture in all its forms. But then, genocidal murderers wouldn't require time for culture, now, would they??
"Mourning Muslim Soldier's Death"

Since it would be necessary to bring along the middle and lower classes in order to pursue the NeoCon goal of total world dominance, Strauss recognized the necessity of encouraging unifying myths in order to foster a strong nationalist cohesion. The tried and proven "myths" would of course be religion and patriotism. He taught his followers that, although they did not believe in these myths, it was necessary to ally themselves, for pragmatic reasons, with those who do.
CACKLE, CACKLE, PUCK, PUCK, SQUACK, SQUACK !
During the weeks preceding 911, the Chicken Hawk NeoCons were cackling and puffing up their feathers in their "Bring 'em on!" posture, just egging for a war that they could send other people's children to fight and die in.
Corey Robin, an assistant professor of political science at Brooklyn College in the City University of New York, did interviews with some well known NeoCons and their compatriots during the weeks preceding 911. Irving Kristol, one of the older generation, complained that Clinton had been too concerned with economic prosperity and insufficiently aggressive in leading the essential U.S. pursuit of ever greater global hegemony. "It's too bad ," he complained, "I think it would be natural for the United States.....to play a far more dominant role in world affairs....to command and give orders as to what is to be done. People need that. There are many parts of the world where an authority willing to use troops can make......a healthy difference."
"Crop Duster, Life Buster"
acrylic - 30"x40" - 2000
HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF THE CITIZENRY - MATTERS FIT FOR ACCOUNTANTS
At the same time, Mr. Kristol Sr., expressed a contempt in a Nietzschean - Straussian manner for any concern about the health or well being of the citizenry in general, which he demeaned as matters fit for accountants. "I think it's disgusting that.....presidential politics of the most important country in the world should revolve around prescriptions for elderly people."
Not to be outdone, Scooter, the soon to be convicted felon, Libby, commented, "the 'cult of peace and prosperity' found expression in President Clinton's weak and distracted foreign policy." This supposedly made it easier for Bin Laden to go wild and unchecked.
To get a little feel for Clinton's side of the issue I'll refer to notes I happened to take during and after an interview the former President granted in a hostile venue.
" Wow ! Did you see Chris Wallace pin Bill Clinton against the ropes on Fox TV sunday night ? He had him in the corner, set up for the knockout punch, which came in the form of, 'Why didn't you go after Bin Laden when you had a chance?' Well, old Bill had to call upon his best instincts to deflect this aggressive thrust....counter punching with a vengeance. As he was battling his way out of the corner, he explained how he had sent missiles to destroy Bin Laden and his gang ( he never had an "army", except when he was fighting the Russians as a CIA supplied Mujadeen in the 1980's. ) So he claimed to have kept Bin Laden and his outlaw jihadists high on his watch list and TRIED to liquidate them after the embassy bombings and finally after the Cole attack, but failed.
But then, the former President's unexpected knockout punch to Chris Wallace and the right wing idealogues who had used Wallace as their hit man, came almost inadvertently, as though propelled by the frustration engendered by the Bushite NeoCon fascists and their lapdog media echo chamber. For when he stressed emphatically that, paraphrasing, 'Although I failed in my attempt to get Bin Laden, at least I tried - which is more than I can say for some others since then',
he was indicting his successor, George Beelzebubbadubya Bush, either intentionally or unintentionally and his Nazi gang of co - conspirators of not just criminal negligence.......but of treasonous complicity !
CIA - BIN LADEN COZY PRE 911?
.....Bin Laden was reported by the Guardian and the Independent of London at the time, to have been visited by a CIA bureau chief while he was in a U.S. hospital in DuBai in july of 2001, when he was already "Numero Uno" on the U.S. most wanted terrorist list!!!!!!!! Then when this Big Bad Bogi Man was trapped, and in U.S. cross hairs in Tora Bora, southeastern Afghanistan, some months after 911, he was allowed to take safe passage into Pakistan.....
No, Mr. Osama was to be much more valuable to the NeoCons in the CIA asset role he had enjoyed since his days as a valuable ally, financially supporting the Mujadeen in partnership with the CIA against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.
It became laughable, the way the Rove - Cheney tactic of dragging out Bin Laden every time Bush's poll ratings went down - especially pre 2004 election. It is remarkable to observe the way the Rove, Cheney, CIA, media juggernaut controls and manipulates the population. Like a perfectly coordinated team of border collies, they herd the sheeple in whatever fearmongering direction they desire. And it would be comic relief in a depressing world if it weren't such tragic irony, the way the NeoCons, as conscience deprived, moral automatons, create wedge issues about which they themselves could give a flying fork, like abortion, gay marriage, prayer in schools, etc., but which their hyper moral Christian camp will take to like hyenas to a five day dead, rotting carcass.
NIETZCHE - INSPIRATIONAL GURU FOR HITLER & STRAUSIAN NEO CONS - SELF PROCLAIMED NIHILIST ANTI - CHRIST
Would Rove, Cheney, Bush, and the NeoCon idealogues command the same loyalty from their Christian Fundamentalists and Evangelicals if the sincere and well intentioned among these followers of Jesus the Christ, knew of the mocking disdain their hero leaders secretly express toward them? Would this NeoCon, Crypto Nazi cabal receive the same groveling obeisance from the Christian population in general if their flock of sheeple knew that the original author and instigator of this cult of war and terror, Herr Nietzsche, in addition to his proclamation that "God is Dead!", referred to Christ as an "idiot". (Twilight of the Idols/The Anti Christ). In his Ecce Homo III-2 he declares,"I am the Anti - Christ".
" The Passion "
Nietzsche, as well as his disciple, Strauss and his students, the NeoCons, reflect a form of European Atheistic Nihilism totally antithetical to the Sermon on the Mount. Nietzsche asks rhetorically,"What does nihilism mean?" He answers,"that the highest values are devalued. The goal is missing : the answer to 'why?' is missing."
And Webster Tarpley adds :"If God is dead, all crimes are allowed." Tarpley describes how Robert Kaplan, a NeoCon publicist and veteran of the Israeli Defense Force, proposes in his "Warrior Politics", that a pagan ethos of war and cruelty is necessary to face the great crises of this period. To Kaplan, the social and philosophical ideals of Christianity are a great obstacle to embedding the necessary attitude in the Ruling Class. Apparently the proper attitude, according to Kaplan and his NeoCon brethren is that embodied in Paul Wolfowitz's favorite quip, one made popular by that great humanitarian, Roman Emperor Caligula, "Let them hate me, as long as they fear me!"
How is it that every thing this NeoCon terrorist gang does or communicates makes me think of impetuos, defiant, brazen adolescents........straight out of "Lord of the Flies".
But how could we expect anything else, when we are dealing with I.Q.'s that are all over the place.....take George W......please...(thanks Henny), his intelligence quotient is 91 (no not 911) - less than half that of his predecessor, Slick Willy, weighing in at 185 (I.Q.). But they are both good at thinking with their crotch head brains, and with the brains in their gut ; and while President Bill resides quite comfortably in his cerebral cortex, President George resides even more comfortably in his primitive brain stem, in perpetual touch with his inner reptile.

And while President Bill scores only in the "idiot level", about 54, when we're considering I.Q. as Integrity Quotient, President George and his merry con men don't even make it up to 0 on this (meaningless to a sociopath) chart. But let's give credit where credit is due. While President Bill is pretty boring when it comes to thinking with his crotch head brains......
ya know, consenting adult female partners.......President George and his merry con men are more imaginative....... they bring in the Jeff Gannon types to satisfy their Biblical Hankerings. Just another feather in his cap.....after all, Boy George had earned the nickname" Lips" in his fraternity at Yale cuz he gave the best head.(As described by Kitty Kelly in her "Unauthorized Biography of George W. Bush")
And there is one aspect of I.Q. where President Bill is still just sub genius, whereas President George and his syndicate are off the charts.........way beyond Genius level ; and that is in the measurement of I.Q. as the" Iniquity Quotient" !!!
Could it be that in assessing the NeoCons and their beloved Republican Party, we are confused by irrelevant symbolism, such as their mascot, the elephant? What does the elephant have to do with the Republican, Neo Conservative Gestalt? Maybe we should think of this movement in terms of, say......the goat. Given the Machiavellian ethos openly embraced by the recent and contemporary luminaries of the Grand (Gay?) Old Party, like the departed Lee Atwater, and the current merchants of fraud and deceit, Newt Gingrich and Carl Rove, the goat feels more appropriate. After all these are the champions of zygotes; they are masters at creating and oppressing scapegoats; then, remember how Emperor Nero fiddled while Rome burned? Well, in honor of his predatory predecessor, Emperor George read a story about a pet Goat while New York burned ; then the Goat as the age old symbol for the Devil is in accordance with Emperor George Beelzebubbadubya as the Prince of Devils, where the subordinate demons are his ultimate purveyors of Evil on earth, in the personas of NeoCon - CryptoNazis : Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Libby, Perle, Kristol, Jeb Bush, Gingrich, Feith, Ledeen, Huntington, Luti, Woolsey, Shulsky, Gonzales, Delay ; disciples of Hitler's lawyer, Carl Schmidt : Judges SScalia and Thomas, and Corporobot Judges, Alito, and Roberts.
" Putting the Kak Back Into Kakistocracy "
digital photo collage - 16"x 20"
Is it idle, speculative, hyperbole, to say that this Bush - Cheney - NeoCon regime is the most corrupt and destructive in the history of mankind? I don't think so.
Just as the destructive capacity of an object striking the earth is dependent upon the momentum, which is in turn dependent upon both the magnitude of the velocity and the magnitude of the mass, not just one or the other : momentum = velocity x mass (M = vm); similarly, the destructive capacity of an administrative regime, or it's Evil (E), is dependent both upon the net negative effect, or corruption, (c), squared, for good measure, (c2), times the number of mankind (m).....men, women, and children effected by this harmful force, or E = c2 x m....... or E = mc2, for the memory challenged.
So the harm or Evil visited upon the hundreds of millions of the peoples inhabiting our planet, as we saw enumerated above, and back aways,
by this Bush - Cheney - NeoCon Junta, is staggering.
And wouldn't Edward Bernays, who developed the field of public relations, and mass mind control, using his uncle Sigmund Freud's theories on the human subconscious, be proud to see how his techniques have enabled the CIA, which has infiltrated all our domestic media, and combined with British MI6, the Israeli Mossad, the Pakistani ISI, etc., to drench the world with Neo Fascist lies and deceit based propaganda, allowing the U.S. Corporatocracy to dupe, hoodwink, and bamboozle the sheeple into going along with their own subjugation and enslavement?
So yes, the overall Evil perpetrated upon the world, begun long before the Bush - Cheney regime, but expanded and deepened, exponentially, both by economic and military means, under their direction, puts this 4th Reich Regime, begun by a coup against U.S. Democracy in the Supreme Court sanctioned, stolen election of 2000, then extended by another fraud and corruption based coup against U.S. Democracy in the stolen election of 2004, yes, it puts this 4th Reich Regime in a class of destructive Evil, by itself, in world history.
Does the U.S. sphere of influence eclipse earlier empires, such as those of Rome, France, England, Spain, the Nazis, the Soviets, etc.? Well, with 745 military bases in 130 countries around the globe, plus missile toting nuclear subs located strategically, there is no location on the planet that is more than 10 minutes striking distance from the "Great Satan's" empirical "ship of fools". But the Admiral and the "Vice" Admiral, and the "Rear"(is that like anal?) Admirals, of this ship of fools are not satisfied......they want space platforms from which to launch energy beams so that they can have the threat of instantaneous annihilation of anyone, or group, or city, not obeying their wishes. Great! That's that good old time Judeo - Christian Spirit, right out of the barbarian sociopath's Liviticus or Joshua.....
O.K., so most of the world's peoples hate the U.S. Government's foreign policies. But, since they fear us also, according to Wolfowitz and the necrophillic NeoCons, everything's hunkydory!!
"The Willing And Able"

Well, I beg to differ......in fact, I differ without begging. I, as an American citizen, as a member of We the People, DEMAND that you, Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rove, Mr. Gonzalez, Mr. Wolfowitz, and the rest of your crime syndicate, masquerading as the Representatives of the People of the United States of America ; I DEMAND that you straighten up and fly right.....or RESIGN!!!!....better yet STAND DOWN ! That's your specialty, isn't it, Mr. Cheney.......ordering a STAND DOWN?
The Principles of this Crime Syndicate, Mr. Bush and "Vice" Mr. Cheney......like to think of the USA as their private corporation, but we prefer to think of it as our Democratic Republic.....should be impeached on the evidence of cooking the intelligence, as per the Downing Street Memo, in order to lie the country into their Operation Iraqi Liberation, (OIL)....oops, a "spill".....so they could lie the Congress and American electorate into an invasion of a defenseless country, in order to rip off their economy, and to rip off the Iraqi People's ancient endowment.....their OIL, just so the Corporobots might fulfill their covetous cravings.
Without even considering the multitude of TREASONOUS CRIMES the Bush - Cheney - NeoCon crime syndicate was guilty of within the 911 false flag, psy - ops scam, there are so many impeachable crimes for which they are culpable, it is hard to know where to start.
Besides, for there to be an honest, independent, investigation into the crimes of 911, the U.S. Congress would have to grow ovaries and testicles and spines and an awareness which so far seems totally foreign to the sleepwalk dream state, that they somnambulate in....
In the meantime, you, Mr. Bush, should be impeached for your reckless disregard for the FISA laws, which you have admitted to, alas bragged about, breaking.
Oh, but wait, just three or four days since I wrote that last word (breaking), and they are no longer "broken". Just yesterday you got enough oligarchy lackeys and corporate pimps in Congress to make your FISA law violations LEGAL!!! (well for six months, anyway). Brilliant, Mr. Rove ! You and your puppet, and your partners in crime are unsurpassed in manipulating and disfiguring our revered Constitution, (ya know, the one that your puppet, Mr. Bush called "just a God damned piece of paper", even though he had sworn a solemn oath on the Bible to uphold that same Constitution), manipulating and disfiguring our solemn treaty obligations, manipulating and disfiguring our Democracy,(by stealing elections with your fraudulent voting machines and illegal "caging techniques"), manipulating and disfiguring our Republic, (replacing it with your 4th Reich, doomed to failure, Empire).

On third thought, impeachment is too good for you low life, white trash (with cash) traitors. You, Mr.'s Bush, and Cheney, and your gang of NeoCons make the Nazi, Nuremburg convicted and executed War Criminals, seem like merely generic, run of the mill patriots, just doing their duty...... just obeying orders.
But you're all just pissant, chicken shit, lackeys for the Ruling Class Oligarchy, now, aren't you????
As I sit down to write, today, August 13, 2007, I don't know whether to rejoice or dread the fact that, you, Mr. Rove, resigned from the Bush cabinet this morning, effective at the end of august. Does that mean you'll be working at your election 2008 caging fraud as a private contractor - consultant, full time? You say you resigned, not because I and millions of other members of the "peanut gallery" of public opinion demanded your resignation, but because you needed more time to spend with your family. Oh, and you want to write a book. Well, how sweet......is that projected best seller going to, perhaps present an insider's revisionist whitewash rendition of history.....sprucing up the Bush - Cheney - NeoCon Administration's legacy? Or maybe you're considering a satirical comedy presentation.......maybe get Howard Zinn to help put together a "People's History of the Bush Fiasco"......
Is it true that you get to retain your "Executive Privilege" status......how does that work? Oh, I forgot, you Executives in the CCFFPPOPOPOPOP,
(Corporobotic, Christ Fucking - "Whatsoever you do to these the least of my brethren, you do unto me", Fascist,Plutocratic, Pricks Of Profit, Over People, Over Peace, Over Planet) get to make up your own rules as you go, and then shove them down the throats of the DICC (Duped, Intimidated and Cowed Congress) and DHBS,(Duped, Hoodwinked, and Bamboozled, Sheeple), don't you?
Since the Genocidal Crime Syndicate of Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Libby, Rove, etc., were clawing their way into positions of power, back in the Nixon, Ford, and Ray Gun days, they have been intent upon U.S., and their own business interests, globally, behind the iron fist of increasing U.S. military dominance over every square meter of the earths surface, whether land or water, up to and including outer space.
Their goals and tactics are in direct succession from the corporate bought and paid for legislators who were determining foreign policy back in General Butler's time. After the U.S. had raped, pillaged, and ripped off the Philipines, the bloodsoaked Manifest Destiny of Her most rabid, barbarian, imperialist, expansionists, was expressed by Sen. Albert Beveridge of Indiana in 1900, "The Philipines are ours forever.......and just beyond the Philipines are China's illimitable markets........the Pacific is our Ocean". On another occasion, my fellow Hoosier from an earlier age proclaimed, while pounding his imperialist, racist, genocidal chest, "We are the ruling race of the world.......we will not renounce our part in the mission of our race, trustee, under God of the civilization of the world........He has marked us as his Chosen People.......He has made us adept in government that we may administer government among savage and senile peoples."
Given this level of presumptuous, belligerent, megalomaniacal, attitude, infesting Congress, it is no wonder Mark Twain and others formed the Anti Imperialist League. Leave it to the most noble and conscious among our writers, poets, artists, musicians and intellectuals to call out and expose the psycho - sociopathological movements trying to lead us over the cliff.
Cui Bono? Who benefits from U.S. expansionism? Instead of sending the Marines to force open markets, rip off raw materials, and secure cheap labor for Standard Oil, United Fruit, Domino Sugar, and Anaconda Copper, as was the case 100,90, and 80 years ago, now the current regime sends the military to achieve the same criminal ends for the likes of Halliburton, Bechtel, Exxon Mobil, and Blackwater........
When we remember how the NeoCons come directly from the virulent influence of the Machiavellian elitist, Leo Strauss, it is easy to see why they were a perfect fit for carrying out the desires of the U.S. Ruling Class.
" Well, OK", one might ask,"who are the U.S. Ruling Class, and what is their relationship to our representative government?"
Here, in the absence of any first hand acquaintance with members of either the Reigning Oligarchy, which at last reports consists of approximately 400 families who possess assets totaling $1,750,000,000,000 (that's $4 billion +, per family),or the Reigning Plutocracy, which includes a broader group of money and power brokers, I find it instructive to refer to the statement of a fortune 500 CEO of Avis Rent-A-Car who, in a moment of candor, described the U.S. Ruling Class as being made up of around 5000 corporate CEO's, financiers and wealthy Oligarchs, who sit on each others boards in a very cozy, incestuous arrangement. To this plutocratic association, the U.S. Congress is, according to his assessment, nothing more than their private whorehouse and the President is merely their private towel boy........
Now this insider's description might seem to be just tongue in cheek hyperbole, until one investigates our representative government, the way our representatives are chosen, and whom they really represent.
First off, anyone who is not aware that our election system has been riddled with corruption and fraud throughout our entire history, but never more than in the Banana Republican ripoffs of 2000, 2004 and the attempted, but failed ripoff of 2006..... just hasn't been paying attention. In the congressional elections of '06 a
contingent of rotten, garbage dump Banana Republicans stole 5 - 6% of the vote by illegal, immoral, caging (wiping legitimate, registered, usually black voters from the voter roles), rigged touch screen voting machines, and every other sleazy low life trick Carl Rove can pull out of his effete anus. But this time they needed 11 - 12%, so the Rove, Bush, Cheney, projected 100 year One Party Rule was staved off.......temporarily, at least.
As long as the Republicans attract most of the money, most of the conscience - deprived, sociopathic PP's, will be drawn like moths to their fire..........the much coveted fire of money begotten power.......which will attract more money, because unregulated (by any moral, or ethical, or legal constraints), "free" (read licentious)
markets are very lucrative and are therefore very attractive investment targets for those unencumbered by the constraints of conscience.
And as long as the major media are in the belly of Machiavelli and the Corporate State is in the weenie of Mussolini, our Democracy will be drowned in the hypocrisy of a Fascist Plutocracy........
acrylic on canvas - 30"x 40"
And let's face it, our major media is a vast Corporobotic system, infiltrated by the CIA, serving the Ruling Class and their whorehouse Congress and special Executive towel boy, helping present this false facade of a functioning Democratic Republic..........in essence providing the same function for the U.S. Corporatocracy that Izvestia and Pravda provided for the USSR's Kremlin.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that the conglomerate media is becoming less and less journalistic and more and more free (licentious) market propaganda ministry, functioning as the mouthpiece and megaphone for the marriage of Big Business and Government, a marriage which Benito Mussolini promoted and called Fascism.
As the Corporate State becomes more and more secretive, the 4th Estate, (the media) is called upon, by the Ruling Class, to furnish the cake.......as in, "Let them eat cake!"
While the Constitutional mandate of the media is to furnish the information necessary for the citizens in this Democracy to make informed evaluations and decisions with respect to ballot propositions and candidates for office, the Corporate Media ignores the meat and potatoes of investigative journalism, to serve only the "cake of distraction"........the antics of the Paris Hiltons, Britney Spears's, and Tom Cruises and any other cheap info drivel which serves the interests of the weapons manufacturing subsidiary of the "news" conglomerate, by obscuring the vital issues of the day......like, "Cui Bono?"......who profits, when "We the People", (we taxpayers), spend more on our military BLACK HOLE than all the rest of the world combined spends on their militaries? We contain 4% of the world's population, and yet we spend more on weaponry, military preparedness, genocidal interventions, etc., than the other 96% of mankind combined????
Any rational citizen would recognize this whole system....... our military, industrial, congressional, media, intelligence complex as pathologically insane!!!
Of course, to the Fascist Corporatocracy, the whole system makes perfect sense. After all it has cost them billions of dollars, supporting millions of think tank man hours of plotting, conniving, and conspiring in order to develop this self aggrandizing , self perpetuating system.

BE FULL OF FEAR ; GIVE UP YOUR FREEDOMS ; THEN GO SHOPPING
And the secrecy and the destruction of the civil and human rights of foreigners, as well as U.S. citizens wrought by the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the admitted to (by Bush,himself) breaking of the law with regards to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), almost certainly in order to eavesdrop and spy on political opponents, just like Nixon once did, have all been made possible by the fear and post traumatic stress engendered by the New Pearl Harbor, 911.
This time, after our second "day that will live in infamy", the strategy for keeping the masses in support of the ensuing war profiteering, is exactly opposite from the first.....this time Pres. Beelzebubbadubya Bush tells us to be very afraid of the terrorists, who could be lurking anywhere. All we are supposed to do, as American citizens, is be willing to give up all our civil rights and liberties for security........and then go shopping! But above all.......be very afraid. By the way, wasn't it good old Ben Franklin who said, paraphrasing, any citizen willing to give up his freedom for security, deserves neither? Oh, excuse me, I forgot, that was in a pre 911 world........

system, which had proven itself incapable of affording the masses the means of supporting themselves.......except in a WAR economy!
So, after provoking the Japanese war mongers to challenge the U.S., and having broken the Japanese codes, which enabled our knowledge of their attack plans, the "sneak attack" was allowed to happen, in order to overcome the "isolationist's" opposition to joining the bloodbath in Europe and subsequently in the Pacific........it was bound to be GOOD FOR BUSINESS!!!
Within a couple days of December 7, 1941, millions of young men had enlisted in the military. In his address to a traumatized nation, President Roosevelt admonished, "The only thing we have to fear..........is fear itself."
Although the war economy is forced, and unnatural, it does raise all boats......
except the boats of those fighting and of those whose country provides the "theater" for the horror drama.
The Great Depression was ended with this huge military buildup. All the GI Joes and Rosie the Riveters were employed, and the Feudalists were feudaling, all the way to the bank.
Fast forward 60 years and the feudalists are restless........in fact they are downright disgruntled.......we'll get back to them a little later.
Our leaders had found ways of keeping the militarized economy humming along for decades with only a couple years respite after WWII, before the USSR exploded its first atomic bomb. With that event the war profiteers had their big bad bogi man to justify their ridiculously extravagant weapons buildup. This began the very profitable Cold War. Those who predicted, at the beginning of this 40 year standoff, during which time the two great powers glared at each other over a deep chasm of "mutually assured destruction", that the side whose national motto of disgrace was, "We pretend to work, and they pretend to pay us", would be eclipsed and outlasted by the side whose national motto of disgrace was,"Greed and exploitation and debt are good", were proven right.
With the disintegration of the USSR emerged, by default, the unipolar world, which the US planners had been dreaming of and preparing for, for decades.
Now, the US was the only World Superpower, and rightfully so, because we are , after all, "exceptional", the "beacon on the hill", and "all US projections of power are benign and unselfish."
This was the characterization of the US government and military which I subscribed to until I was 30. It was in 1968 that a fellow teacher made me aware that my government's entanglement in Viet Nam was motivated by unjust, illegal, immoral, corrupt and flat out Evil intentions.....the "fog of war"? huh!
Many people still want to believe in "American Exceptionalism", in her innocence and benevolence, as we witnessed after 911, in the outpouring of condolences and good wishes from all over the world.
"Mourning the Morning After"

It was important to the Ruling Class for the US to project this good and virtuous image during the Cold War when Capitalism was competing with Communism for "hearts and minds" around the world. And it's still important for the Corporatocracy to project an image of caring and benevolence, especially when it embraces the employment of its 4th Reich Strategy, that of preemptive war (unprovoked aggression), in order to achieve its objectives, which often include creating a "Regime Change", doublespeak for deposing an uncooperative, "evil dictator", as in the case of Saddam Hussein, (whom" we" had put into power and had supported through all his most egregious atrocities.........then, when he had the audacity to refuse to be the submissive, obedient puppet "we" had set him up to be, "we" tricked him into attacking Kuwait, so " we" would have an excuse to attack him, disable his military at the behest of the Zionists, and create a huge profit for the weapons industry, while laying the groundwork for taking over his vast oil fields by Western Corporations).
Acrylic - 48" x 60" - 2000
So, after the hugely superior US Military had totally vanquished Saddam's armies, slaughtering many tens of thousands.......many of them while in helpless retreat along the Highway of Death, (from Kuwait City to Bazra); after "we" had contaminated Bazra and other Iraqi cities, with "depleted" uranium.......for all practical purposes.......FOREVER.......raising the leukemia and birth defect rates by many multiples.......FOREVER.........(only to contaminate all Iraqi cities, by a much greater degree in the current genocidal OIL GRAB OCCUPATION ), the Great Christianist, ANTICHRIST visited upon the Iraqi people (during the Clinton years) a genocidal sanction regimen, designed ostensibly to punish and coerce Saddam, but in actuality, killing off over 1,000,000 Iraqis, over half of whom were children under 5........
But it was when Saddam changed his petroleum currency from US dollars to Euros that he sealed his fate.
The US Ruling Class had been coveting the oil and natural gas of the Middle East for generations. With the fall of the Communist counterbalance, only the control of the energy sources of this region plus that of the Caspian Sea region would stand in the way of total, unchallengeable global hegemony.
So now that the USA is the last standing Super Power, how does the Crypto - Fascist Ruling Class, our insatiable, feudalist, hegemonic coterie, pull off the final coup de grace, catapulting themselves, as owners of the US Corporatocracy, into the position of "SUPREME GLOBAL DECIDER"???

First off, "the project" must be kept secret until leaking elements becomes advantageous. In order to really "go for it" with no restraint or remorse, the US government must be in the hands of ruthless, sociopathic leaders,"cuz makin' this sausage ain't gonna be pretty", and empathy and compassion will find "no usage in this sausage". Obviously, who better to satisfy the job description than "our" masters of audacity and mendacity, the NeoCons, who had been evolving and climbing into higher and more secure positions of power over the previous 30 or so years.
The necessary elements were coming together. During the G. H.W. Bush administration, Saddam Hussein had been demonized as the Persian Gulf Pariah when he was suckered into attacking Kuwait by the message "from on high" delivered by US envoy, April Glasspie, when she told Saddam that his border dispute (Kuwait had been slant drilling into Iraq, stealing Iraqi oil) was no concern of the US........in effect giving him the green light to invade Kuwait.
"Bushit Lies - A Lot To Swallow"

As usual, the US Congress and public,as well as worldwide acceptance and backing for US and coalition mass attack on, in this case, Saddam's armies ,had to be achieved through trickery and deceit. Hill and Knowlton, a K Street PR firm, concocted a phony tale of Iraqi soldiers ripping Kuwaiti incubator babies out and throwing them on the cold hospital floor to die.......then coached a beautiful 15 year old member of the Kuwaiti Royal Family, who was presented before a US Congressional hearing as well as the world media cameras, as a Kuwaiti nurse's aid, whereupon she delivered a tearful, sobbing, Academy Award winning rendition of this heart jerking lie.
Then, to further assure worldwide, but especially US public and Congressional support for invasion, a fictional report of a huge amassing of Iraqi troops and tanks on the Saudi Arabian border was reported as fact.......only to be shown to have been just another "official lie" by independent satellite photos......revealed too late to effect the ensuing attack and massacre.

So, as we touched on above, after the US and coalition forces had routed the Iraqis and sent them back home with their tails between their legs, our upper tier "deciders", chose to take this opportunity to display the US military's version of Christian chivalry and nobility, by bombing and strafing the fleeing Iraqi army on the notorious "highway of death", leaving thousands of disabled vehicles and tens of thousands of dead Iraqis strewn along this desert route.

At this point, Pres. GHW Bush and his main advisors, James Baker, Brent Scowcroft and Dick Cheney, chose not to go into Bagdad to take out the insubordinate Saddam, fearing the chaos and regional destabilizing effect this power vacuum might create. It is timely and ironic to note that just this past week a 1994 interview that "citizen Dick Cheney" gave, has surfaced in many venues, from You Tube to John Stewart's Daily Show, revealing Cheney defending this very decision on the grounds that going in to depose Saddam would have created the very

chaos and "quagmire" then, that all the critics from the Left (from Noam Chomsky on out) predicted would occur, post invasion, in 2003......guess what? It has!!! Oh, excuse me, I forgot, that was pre - 911 thinking........now Nazi Dick has Halleburton profits and the bogus synthetic War on Terrorism to promote. What better pretext to boost corporate war profits and pursue US Empirical Planetary Hegemony than by fostering the multiplication of US hating Islamic "terrorists" around the world? Let's be honest......if you're gonna have a War on Terrorism you gotta have a formidable mass of Bogi Man Terrorists out there.........
The NeoCons, whom the elder Bush called "the crazies", were not happy when "we" didn't "finish the job"......by taking out Saddam. These sociopathic, Zionist, crypto Nazi NeoCons, some of whom, as noted above, had (have) dual, US - Israeli citizenship, could see the US takeover and occupation of Iraq as an insurance policy for Israeli security and long range Middle East dominance as well as a giant step toward US Universal Global Empire........and this was before it was "kosher" to describe US cultural, economic and military, total dominance, as evidence of "US GLOBAL EMPIRE ".

The march toward "Full Spectrum Dominance", was still goose stepping right on schedule, though, in the minds of "our" NeoNazi NeoCons. They must have been inspired and motivated by the political philosophy of Zbigniew Bryzinski, who had been Pres. Jimmy Carter's foreign policy adviser. Mr. Bryzinski likes to take credit for the strategy which lured Soviet Russia into Afghanistan, his "Bear Trap", which was intended to bog the Russians down in their own Viet Nam style quagmire, hopefully hastening the demise of the Soviet Union.
Bryzinski exhibited his brilliance as a geopolitical strategist again in his 1997 book, "The Grand Chessboard". In it he laid out the huge importance of gaining control of the oil and natural gas of the Middle East and the Caspian Sea Basin toward the US quest for total Global Dominance.
The NeoCons must have been thoroughly stoked by his description of the course necessary to achieve this hegemonic goal, because they seem to have followed it like a treasure map, down to and including his scenario for gaining the support of Congress and the US citizenry, either in a long, drawn out laborious struggle, or through the catalyzing effect of a cataclysmic event "like a new Pearl Harbor". As we saw earlier, the NeoCon men even used the exact same terminology in their PNAC declaration .
Well, as we might conclude, plagiarism is an easily forgivable, very venial sin in the lexicon of treachery, corruption, and genocide employed by these Neo Con(vict) psychos.
"WTO = World Fascism"
These "crazies" tried pitching the idea of attacking Iraq , deposing Saddam, and gaining a permanent strategic oil field foothold, to Pres. Clinton, but he was too busy taking the welfare safety net away from poor people, giving away US jobs while enslaving millions through corporate written trade scam treaties, like NAFTA , GATT , and WTO and trying to keep his zipper up, to listen to these nefarious, needle eyed camel squeezers.
So they would have to wait 'til after their fraudulent 2000 election, before ascending to supreme power in the cabinet of President (sic) George W. Bush, whose biographical highlights and qualifications include: US Air Force deserter, drunk or dry drunk, coke head, life long ruthless, sadistic, torturer of animals as a child, to torturer of prisoners as

having psychically crippled and traumatized the citizenry by the "false flag" 911, the most audacious psy - ops, (psychological operations), connivance in US history......
So, Qui Bono? Who benefits from this heinous orgy of death, fear mongering and retaliation?
Did Osama Bin Forgotten really benefit from 911? To the Islamic media, he denied having anything to do with it, and denounced the whole attack on innocent people as being against the teachings of the Koran........Hypocrisy? Propaganda? Definitely at odds with the video produced and "authenticated" by the CIA......This video presents Osama Bin Laden, gloating, and expressing pride and approval for the 911 accomplishment.
The problem is, just as one does not have to be a structural engineer or a demolitions expert to watch the twin towers explode from the top as they come crashing down at free fall speed, like descending volcanoes, to know that there were forces many times greater than that of gravity alone, causing these destructions, one does not need to be a professional portrait artist to SEE that the man in the CIA sanctioned Osama video is not Osama Bin Laden.
Millenium Hilton Hotel - Located on Church St., Over 500 Feet From Either Tower. The Facade Can Be Seen To Have Been Sprayed By Shrapnel From The Exploding Exoskeletons of the Twin Towers.
Having earned a degree in architectural engineering, and having worked as an architect and builder, my intellect and gut tell me that the towers were brought down in EXPLOSIVE controlled demolitions. EXPLOSIVE because, besides the visual evidence of the "descending volcanoes", large sections of the steel exterior frame, weighing many tons were thrown 400 and 500 feet (the length of one and a half football fields) horizontally, to be left protruding from buildings in the vicinity......
for all to see, and photograph.......

All the characteristics of the controlled IMPLOSION were present in the collapse of building 7. The maintenance housing in the mid roof area began to sink first. Then, as the whole building started to descend, while the bottom column supports were being taken out in a split second timing sequence, facilitating this "whole building collapse", a definite dip in the middle of the roof span can be seen, a signature implosion characteristic, assuring that the exterior walls will fall inward, so the whole structure ends up piled on its own footprint, not damaging surrounding buildings. This demolition was a pure textbook case. The Twin Tower collapses were much more spectacular, and intentionally so. The emotional pain which these images evoked will remain in the subconscious trauma center of our nation's psyche, forever.
So alright, who were the big winners in the 911 Sweepstakes? We know it wasn't Bin Forgotten, unless you want to believe in the CIA bogus, "fat Osama" video tape.....
How about the winners in the Put Options Sweepstakes? Let's recall how there was a huge spike in the put option purchases on United and American Airlines - people betting that United and American stocks would go down - all coming in the 3 or 4 days prior to 911. And how the CIA keeps track of these transactions in real time, because guess what........a lot can be learned about concurrent events.....crimes, scams, etc., from monitoring this market. A lot of money reportedly changed hands - as much as many millions according to some estimates, due to this "insider trading". But we didn't get to learn anything about who bought and how much from the (Zelikow), Keane, Hamilton 911 Commission Report. This information might allow us to know who knew beforehand what was to befall us all.......real earth shaking "market insider" knowledge.
The Commission's lameass excuse for not revealing this information was that it was irrelevant , because the put options purchasers were not Al Queda connected.
The 911 Commission should have been called the Zelikow, Cheney Official 911 Conspiracy Myth Corroboration Commission. Phillip Zelikow, who had the job of determining what aspects of the 911 event would be dealt with by the Commission, was a Bush White House transition team member, and had written a book in partnership with Condoleesa Rice. Half the members of the Commission had connections with the involved airlines; all the members of the Commission were handpicked by the White House. All these conflicts of interest precluded any possibility of their investigating anything that would not corroborate the official story.
As a result, the collapse of building 7 was not even mentioned in the report. And the multiple War Games that were operating that morning, that included hijackings, planes crashing into buildings, etc., scenarios which were bound to confuse, (or were meant to appear to confuse) interdepartmental communications regarding the real life hostile events, found no mention in the report except in one footnote, where these mock attacks were described as having helped in the attempt to thwart the real life attacks......just more irrational armadillo droppings!!!!

The Fact Of The Steel's Molten Liquification State Belies The Action Of A High Temperature Explosive Agent Like Thermate, Which Reaches Temperatures Beyond 4500 Degrees Fahrenheit.
So who else won big in the 911 Sweepstakes? Well, when Mr. Silverstein and his investment partners, the Black Stone Group, and David Rockefeller took a 99 year lease on the complex for $200 million around seven weeks before its demise, they were faced with a code upgrade of about $1billion (asbestos contamination upgrade,etc.).
Along with the lease taking, Mr. Silverstein very presciently took out an insurance policy which would award him and his team $3.6 billion for each terrorist attack, in the case of multiple separate or concurrent attacks. So instead of paying out $1 billion, they collected $7.2 billion.......an $8,000,000,000 windfall.
That's beyond qui bono.......that's in the qui molto bono category at least!
And then Mr.Silverstein, in an unguarded moment, admitted in a PBS interview that he (they) decided to bring building 7 down in a controlled demolition. "The fire chief and I decided that with the great loss of life earlier, maybe we'd better just, "PULL IT". So we did. And we watched it come down."
Anyone familiar with highrise demolition would know that it takes weeks of planning and set up time in order to bring a 47 story skyscraper down in a perfectly symmetrical, textbook fashion as was the case with this 5:20p.m., 9/11/2001,free fall speed, collapsing destruction. (a rock dropped from the roof top would take 5.9 seconds to hit the ground.......in this case the roof itself took 6.5 seconds to reach the ground level......since any resistance would have thrown off either the symmetry or the speed of the collapse, or both, it must be assumed that charges took out the columns in rapid, precisely timed succession, as would be expected in a professional demolition job.
Why, one might wonder, would Mr. Silverstein be so out front in admitting this felonious smoking gun? One can only surmise that at this point.......a year after the deed, where no significant questions had yet been raised......the whole government was securely controlled by the NeoCons and their allies, and the Media, being the US version of Izvestia - Pravda, and therefore no threat, the perpetrators were probably quite relaxed and confident of their success.........
I, for one, had doubted the official story from day one. Mr. Bush's performance in the classroom was extremely suspicious.....as were his early scapeGOATing speeches. My initial reaction of horror at the "blowback".......a CIA term, signifying the retaliation upon the US for its misdeeds........such as, for backing "Evil Dictators", like Saddam Hussein, the Shah of Iran, or other Nazi like regimes, like those of Marcos, Suharto, Netanyahu, Sharon, Pinochet, etc., etc., etc........quickly evolved into wondering if the whole nightmare had been an inside job.
After all, hadn't Payne Stewart's jet been intercepted within 15 or so minutes from loss of radio contact with FAA control tower? Then as I learned later, the average intercepts per year, for many years, has been right at about 100. Significantly, in the nine months prior to 9/11, sixty seven flawless intercepts were made. How could 4 big lumbering passenger jets escape intercept and one even foil the elaborate defenses......ground to air missiles, etc., of what must be the most heavily protected building in the world???
And when Condoleesa Rice claimed that no one could have imagined that terrorists would hijack passenger jets and then use them as missiles to attack vulnerable targets......when that very morning war game exercises were simulating that same exact scenario. And hadn't an Algerian terrorist group, just a couple years earlier, hijacked a jumbo jet and declared to their captives their intention of crashing it into the Eifel Tower......only to be thwarted by a commando assault and takeover when they were refueling in Marseille?
But since our corporate media is about as revelatory and "fair and balanced" as Bill O'Reilly with a butt plug protruding from his nose, the great DHB, (Duping, Hoodwinking, and Bamboozling) of the US masses of Sheeple, was launched very successfully right on the day of 911.
And of course , this program of Bush - NeoCon propaganda facilitated the gargantuan 911Sweepstakes jackpot. With the population sufficiently traumatized, the war backing from the Congress and the Sheeple was assured. So, while the population were kept at orange alert by anthrax mailings (traced to a lab at Ft. Dedrick Maryland - another inside job?) most notably sent to 2 prominent Democratic Senators.....Daschle and Leahy (the two standing in the way of the administration's ramming through the crypto fascist Patriot Act......equivalent to Hitler's Enabling Act) the wars to further the neo Nazi Zionist's interests, and secure control over Middle Eastern as well as Caspian Basin oil and gas, were being set up.
As ALWAYS, our young men and women, who had volunteered for military duty, both active and reserve,expecting educational assistance,desiring to serve their country, and protect the Constitution from "all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC", were force fed those phony noble pretexts as motivation; first it was to "prevent the smoking gun from being a mushroom cloud"; then it was to depose the Evil Dictator,Saddam Hussein; then it was to bring freedom and democracy........
all LIES.......once again, as General Butler said, "Our boys (and girls) were sent off to die with beautiful ideals painted in front of them. No one told them that (petro) dollars and cents were the real reason they were marching off to kill and die."
I think, for the most accurate description of the current NeoCon agenda, we might revisit a statement made by Senator Orville Platt of Connecticut, back in 1894, "I firmly believe that when any territory outside the present territorial limits of the United States becomes necessary for our defense or essential for our commercial development, we ought to lose no time in acquiring it."
That was the way "we" did it back in the gilded age........the epoch of the robber barons. If there were markets or raw materials or slave labor, US corporate
bosses coveted, they'd have their bought and paid for, President, towel boy, lackey, send in the Marines. This was the Corporatocracy's modus operandi .

As war weaponry evolved, the techniques for subjugating target populations kept pace. Long before the Nazi Luftwaffe made attacking civilian populations from the air fashionable among the dominator classes, and had simultaneously drawn the wrath of all civilized people for all time, through the great and historic painting, Guernica, by Pablo Picasso, which was a poetic and visceral reaction to the Nazi bombing and mass murder visited upon the Spanish town of Guernica, in support of their Fascist ally, Franco, the US military had performed an even greater genocidal atrocity from the air,when in 1915 during the putting down of a peasant uprising in Haiti, "American marines opened fire with machine guns from airplanes on defenseless Haitian villages,killing men, women and children in the open market places for sport,"as a US reporter described the massacre of 50,000 Haitians.
As the 20th century progressed, the weapons of war and the strategies for waging war became increasingly horrendous. The First World War showed the traditional ratio of 10 combatants killed for every 1 civilian death. By the Second World War the ratio had reversed. With the use of carpet bombing, fire bombing, and ultimately nuclear bombing, 10 civilians died for every 1 combatant.

And military weaponry was becoming more and more profitable, and apparently more and more difficult to keep track of......to the point where, the very day before 9/11/01, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld was before Congress trying, in his inimitable fashion, to explain how $2.3 trillion had disappeared into the Pentagon's accounting black hole.......but not to worry, cuz the very next day, the Pentagon's accounting department, that was trying to "account" for this disappearance was itself disappeared into its own black hole of smoke and rubble!
So go ahead and say it, Church Lady......."Well, how conveeeeenient!" Thanks for your timely input......that should keep our Bunkeroidal Coincidentalists satisfied........another conveeeenient coincidence! Convenient, indeed, for the Cui Moltissimo Bono 911 Sweepstakes Windfall Winners.......in this case, the War Profiteering Corporobots who "CONSPIRED" to disappear 2.3 trillion tax payer dollars into their rotten rocket pockets......never to be investigated, because the evidence has been destroyed....... as was the evidence being compiled against fraudsters like Enron and WorldCom when the SEC (Securities and Exchange) offices located in building 7 of the Trade Center was demolished.
And is it rational to believe that Hani Hanjour, who could barely pass a flying test in order to rent a Cessna , managed to pull off an all but impossible maneuver in a 757 jetliner which required dropping 7000 feet, while making a 270 degree, spiral approach, in order to, by pure coincidence, hit this newly reinforced, still under construction, ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT section of the Pentagon, where all but a few of the lost lives were those of construction workers; and this when the Pentagon was visible for many miles, and if plunged into in the easiest, most logical manner available, straight on, would have taken out many of the top brass, including Rumsfeld, himself???
And how is it that April Gallop, a Pentagon office worker who had brought her two and a half month old baby to work that fateful morning, and both of whose lives were spared by fate, or luck, or Providence........ she was told that her desk was about 45 feet from where the plane's fuselage penetrated the building - she and her baby were helped to safety through the approximately 15 foot diameter hole that the 757 jetliner supposedly caused.......how is it that Ms. Gallop saw nothing that resembled a jetliner or parts thereof?
Even after being told by a military representative what had happened as she lay recovering in a hospital bed, she refused to be a corroborating eye witness, because what she was coached to say was not what she had actually observed.
And how is it that scores of Pentagon personnel claim to have smelled cordite as they were evacuating the crash site (or explosion site)?
Here it is, August, 2007, and with all the evidence and eye witness accounts and sworn testimony and White House sponsored investigative commission, and 911 Truth conferences I have had access to, HOW the Pentagon tragic incident occurred is still up for grabs in my imagination.
Some eye witnesses claimed to have seen a small Lear Jet or Cruise missile sized plane that swooshed like a missile rather than roaring like a jet as it approached the Pentagon crash and explosion. Other witnesses saw an American Airlines jet crash into the building. Among these were two Pentagon guards who, unbeknownst to each other, and standing a block apart, were both able to tell positively that the big American Airlines jet zoomed past the Citgo station on the north side as it approached the great architectural colossus .
There was a discrepancy between their testimony and the official route of the jet, which was south of the Citgo station...... where 4 light posts were knocked down.......but that's par for the confused and contradictory course of evidence surrounding the Pentagon enigma.......
Could the whole Pentagon fiasco have been a slight of hand trick on a huge scale? That's it. They hired Penn and Teller to work out the illusory logistics. Maybe that's why these masters of illusion attacked the alternative 911 conspiracy proponents so vehemently.
It was as though, in their real professional lives, as purveyors of magic, their
audiences were not at all aware that their seemingly supernatural, miraculous, staged events were actually skillfully performed illusions. Therefore, in order to retain their very lucrative, god like celebrity, they must crush, either physically of metaphorically any challenge to their miracle worker credibility......
So, since there were no defining remnants of a Boeing 757, like one of the huge, 9 foot diameter, by 11 foot long jet turbine engines (there were photos of a much smaller turbine, like that of a Cruise missile, in the wreckage, it might be noted) , could it be that a Penn and Teller illusion did occur?
The radar operators who watched the path of the incoming object on their screens all thought it had to be a military jet (or missile), by the intricacy of the maneuver; and many seasoned airline pilots have admitted they don't think they could have pulled off this dexterous feat themselves. Others in the aviation field wonder how the huge plane could have clipped the light poles and crashed into the building where it supposedly entered without scraping the Pentagon lawn.
So, OK, if Penn and Teller designed the "slight of plane trick", how do you think they put it together? Let your imagination go. There are only a few parameters that constrain our search for plausible scenarios. We will have to be pretty inept, though, in order to come up with a story with more holes in it than does the Official Conspiracy Myth of 911.
Let's see. One element we can't discard is the use of explosives. The military "nose witnesses" could be counted on to recognize the smell of cordite, from their military training or live battle experience, or both.
The Cruise missile can't be discarded out of hand, either, cuz the hole that Ms. Gallop and her baby were helped to escape through sure looked like the Cruise missile blast hole we've seen in war photos from Beirut to Belgrade to Bagdad. All they'd have to do is paint some windows along the sides of a missile, and "swoosh"- ing by at 4 or 500 miles per hour it could probably be mistaken for a small business jet, as described by some witnesses.
Here, it might help quell our collective feelings of frustration and futility to recall that the only reason our curiosity about what happened at the Pentagon has not been satisfied is because the FBI took all the Pentagon multiple video surveillance camera evidence of this criminal incident immediately, and within minutes had confiscated the video recordings of the event caught by private video surveillance cameras at both a gas station and hotel nearby.
As someone said, "If the government has nothing to hide, why are they hiding everything?"
On a lighter note......this day, August 27, 2007 brought with it the resignation of one of the great " hiders ", obfuscators, deniers, and flat out lying destroyers of Constitutional, Democracy in these United States of America, Attorney General, Alberto "I don't recall" Gonzalez. I swear to God , if this whole Bush - Cheney - NeoCon criminal syndicate, along with 95% of the Republican and 80% of the Democratic members of Congress and the Supreme Court, and Federal Appellate Courts were forced to resign, we could replace them all with homeless veterans off the streets of America, and we'd be better off........the certainty is though, we'd still have to get all the BRIBERY MONEY (what the Supreme Court has deemed to call "free speech") out of the system.......from all sources - or, given human nature, these penniless, shopping cart pushers would be multi millionaires within 2 years, and we'd be back in the same forked up mess we're in now........IT'S THE SYSTEM STUPID !!!!!

Getting back to the genesis of our current dilemma, 911 and the slime bucket brigade......you say the government revealed 5 frames from the gas station surveillance camera. This was just an eyeball tease......totally inconclusive. I don't get it. I mean, if I were a hyper bogus patriot, partisan hack, like most of the bunkeroidal coincidentalist , Official 911 Conspiracy Theory apologists, I would have put together a convincing, authentic looking animation, from the viewpoint of the gas station surveillance camera, and sold it to the FBI......and they could have shown it on National TV , and squashed the PentaCON rumors.
Of course, this type of fraud on top of fraud could not work with the twin towers and building 7, because there are too many major "news" network original documentations of the three skyscrapers "collapsing" as in the legendary "Falling Volcanoes of Ground Zero" videos, and the famous "Building 7 Come 11, Wham, Bam, Thank You Mam, Scam", videos.
Getting back to our Pentagon speculating, we've got eye witnesses of a Cruise missile sized jet crashing ; eye witnesses of an American Airlines jetliner crashing ; nose witnesses of cordite explosives ; no convincing evidence of a large jet wreckage, as we have seen when a passenger jet crashes into the side of a mountain, explodes and burns. We've got published photos of military or FBI men carrying an object around 5 foot high by 10 foot long on a large pallet, and shrouded in secrecy by a draped over cloth, away from the crash site. We've got photos of a long human chain of military or Pentagon employees moving across the Pentagon lawn outside the crash site picking up any small scraps of evidence.
So, did the Penn and Teller Psy - Ops Dept. within the DIA or the FBI set up a synchronized operation, where the American Airlines jet skimmed over the top of the Pentagon at the moment the Cruise missile or explosives within the building, or both blew up right below, obscuring and enabling the slight of plane trick???
The thing that pisses off this US citizen is that we have to wonder about these extremely far reaching issues, when they all should have been resolved, or at least questioned within the 911 Commission investigations. Instead we were treated to a WHITEWASH COVERUP unfortunately appropriate and befitting this most corrupt and destructive administration in US history.
And talk about "qui molto bono", this is "qui moltissimo bono" on crack......
who is it that profits to the ultimate degree???
It sure looks like Halleburton, British Petroleum, Exxon Mobil, Custer Battles, DynCorps, Blackwater, Bechtel, Lockeed Martin, General Electric, Boeing, the Carlisle Group, Raytheon, General Dynamics were (are) some of the Colossal 911 Sweepstakes Winners.
In fact, these Corporobots were really the Super Winners, ( along with hundreds of other Pentagon weapons, parts, service and general products suppliers.......but the "good old days", when $500 toilet seats were deemed scandalous, pale at today's tax payer rip offs - like the $2043 per piece, bolts we got charged for by one of these "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS" corporate outfits) , Super Winners when?.......the very instant the Pentagon accounting department was taken out by the enigmatic explosion (of uncertain origin). That $2.3 trillion Pentagon disappearance of funds, (Katherine Austin Fitts, a former Washington insider, who was assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD ) under Jack Kemp, claims that the actual shortfall in Pentagon funds is closer to $3.3 trillion ) is impossible to connect to specific corporations now that the accounting records were destroyed......
What do you think, Church Lady? "Well, how conveeeeeeenient!!" I thought you'd say that.
And how do our Republican Bushie sycophant , partisan hack, bogus patriot, bunkeroidal coincidentalist, Official 911 Conspiracy Theory apologists, feel about all these windfall, 911 Sweepstake profits?
You say they are commensurate and deserved in exchange for helping protect us all from the scourge of Islamo Fascism,the Axis of Evil, and Alqueda.
Well, as for Islamo Fascism, the term is about as accurate as would be, say Judeo - Christian Nazism, or Confusionist Communism, or Banana Republicanism. Well, maybe the last one is accurate.........
As for the Axis of Evil, do you Bunkeroidal Coincidentalists really think it is just a coincidence that Iraq, Iran and North Korea were the 3 "insubordinate nations" that were in the process of changing their trade currency from dollars to euros at the time of Beelzebubbadubya's "Axis of Evil" proclamation?

Alqueda? This "ubiquitous, global, terrorist threat", is the new Bogiman......
Reported by the US Corporate Press as though they filled the ranks of the Iraqi insurgency, when in reality they constitute only about 3% of this Iraqi Resistance. As an offshoot of the Mujahadeen, of which Bin Laden was a member and wealthy supporter, when they were allied with the CIA in the effort to expel the Soviet occupiers from Afghanistan back in the 1980's, this rag tag confederacy of loyal Islamists, has been blown way out of proportion by "the crazies", the NeoCon - men, the same way they inflated the Soviet Communist Bogiman threat in a previous incarnation as "Team B", during the Oligarchy - Lackey, Ronnie Ray Gun Regime.
The sociopathic, war economy dependent Ruling Class, needs its Bogiman, perpetual enemy......Nazism......Socialism.......Communism.......Terrorism, drug kingpins, etc., to constantly "justify" ripping off trillions of dollars from "We the People".......from our physical infrastructure funds, from our educational funds, from our health care funds, from our food, housing and transportation funds, from our retirement and safety net, Social Securety funds, etc.,etc.,etc., just as President Eisenhower warned ! .
