“Keep Friends Close & Enemies Closer”

October 30, 2008

When people finally begin to look back on this, they will discover some amazing facts that many have totally ignored, so far.

The first thing is that the various populations, around the world, have been under microscopes for decades. Every aspect of our habits and our lives have been studied to the nth degree; to take full advantage of our inclinations and our faults, to enable the owners to take full advantage of us when that will count the most. That time has arrived, and we have all been primed for the slaughter, as surely as a flock of sheep waiting in the pens at the railhead.

The second most-important-thing has to do with maintaining absolute control over all forms of information dispersal. The owners own every facet of these unfolding events, except possibly the internet: and they’re working on that every minute of every hour to turn that too into a minefield filled with disinformation, rumors and junk-mail that will only further confuse unwary users.

How did we miss these facts? As the owners so clearly discovered, our collective memories have the retention capacity of a gnat, when it comes to anything that has happened in the past: And our concentration levels have been truncated to absorbing no more than a bunch of one-liners and that we are now physically incapable of making sense out of compound thoughts or stories that exceed one page. The Owners did their homework: We did not!

The third most important thing is that we still seem to have no clue whatever as to what is about to happen to this country. The “nation” is already gone, along with the Constitution and our democratically run Republic. But if you listen to the public, they are actually unaware that this has already taken place. The “battle” has been fought and the ‘Good Guys’ lost. Just look at what has happened with *our money* that was so recently doled out without conditions to the same people that caused the global meltdown.

From Democracy Now this morning:

“Half of Bank Bailout Money Going to Shareholders

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports major US banks are on pace to spend more than half their bailout money on rewarding their shareholders. The thirty-three banks are set to receive some $163 billion in government bailouts. Half of that sum would go toward paying off shareholders over the next three years. The Bush administration touted the bank bailout as necessary to resume lending. But Treasury officials say the banks would never accepted loans if they weren’t allowed to redistribute dividends to shareholders. Democratic Senator Charles Schumer of New York is calling for the suspension of dividend payments at bailed-out banks.

AIG Spends $90B in Taxpayer Money Amidst Secrecy
This comes as the New York Times reports the insurance company American International Group has rapidly used most of its $123 billion government loan with little account for where the money has gone. AIG has drawn some $90 billion in government money so far.”

And this:

“Goldman Sachs is on course to pay its top City bankers multimillion-pound bonuses - despite asking the U.S. government for an emergency bail-out. The struggling Wall Street bank has set aside £7billion for salaries and 2008 year-end bonuses, it emerged yesterday.

Each of the firm's 443 partners is on course to pocket an average Christmas bonus of more than £3million.

The size of the pay pool comfortably dwarfs the £6.1billion lifeline which the U.S. government is throwing to Goldman as part of its £430billion bail-out. As Washington pours money into the bank, the cash will immediately be channeled to Goldman's already well-heeled employees.

News of the firm's largesse will revive the anger over the 'rewards for failure' culture endemic in the world of high finance.

Meanwhile: little attention has been paid to the reality of what home foreclosures actually look like.

“For the past few years, the Inland Empire in Riverside County has been one of the fastest growing counties in the state - home to a major housing boom. But now the Inland Empire is pretty much the poster child for the foreclosure crisis. In the newer developments, house after house sits vacant - either up for auction, for sale by a bank or going for what’s called a “short sale” which is when the owner owes more than the house is worth.

SoCal Connected tracked down some surreal sights associated with the crisis - a company that specializes in removing whatever people leave behind in their foreclosed homes. The process is called a “trashout” - a term the company came up with because it perfectly describes what happens. Everything that’s left is dumped in a trailer and taken to the landfill.”

Adjusting the BalanceThe above is only the latest tip-of-the-spear that continually enters us to seek out our vital organs, in their on-going effort to destroy us. With the arrival of that political dead-zone that will follow the selections on November fourth we will enter a real Twilight Zone, that will be a shadow world with no clear choices and huge dangers to us all. This phase of this War-upon-the-USA will be the “last chance” for these Road-Warriors to steal, to trash and to capture whatever they feel they still need: in order to complete their takeover of this country. “We” are not expected to resist. However if we do, then they have the troops ready to quell whatever might come up so that their takeover will proceed without a hitch.

Thanks to our inattention our finances are under a full-scale attack, our ‘services’ are in retreat at warp-speed, and our defenses against any of these invasions are almost nil. Congress, the Department of Justice, the Courts and the entire super-structure of the government is what is aligned against us, with the full force of all that they have stolen to date now arrayed to finish us off. All of this was planned down to the last dollar, and at every step in this chain of blood & fire, we elected to say virtually nothing; preferring instead to place our faith in some very rigged elections that will only bring us more massive losses no matter who “wins.”

The time has long since passed for real action or for organized opposition; what must happen now is spontaneous-responses that could stop what they envision. First among these would be a general strike against everything that is taking place. They still need us to bring this off: And they still need us far more than we need them (that’s the really huge secret that they don’t want you to know). A General Nationwide Strike would bring an end to all their current bag-of-tricks regarding the money NOT being loaned out, the tyrannies not being owned up to regarding the pending lock-down of the country, not to mention the devaluation of the currency, the loss of all political freedoms, as well as possible detention under The Homegrown Terrorism Act (that they have already used in Michigan) but which as yet is not on the books as “law.” If the public continues to do nothing or if (as usual) they choose to “give the new government another chance,” then it is over: because the people they will bring with them into office are the same people that got us into this mess in the first place. Change can never occur if the people holding the power are the same people that oversaw this meltdown and did nothing so many hundreds of times before. Don't buy anything & just stay home!

People must be fired and charged where sufficient evidence is present; and blame must be determined as well as punishment for those crimes because while fashions might change with time: there cannot be alterations in what is needed to alter our remaining ways of both law and life.

Good Luck America on your pending trip into the Twilight Zone!
