Thomas Paine's Corner
The elite power configuration that controls America—what do they desire most for the average American citizen? Moronity. Christian fundamentalist kinds of irrationality. Dearth of freethinking. Citizens moved enough by words to ignore evidence, frightened enough to simply “Trust us.”
A nation of consumers as easily and predictably manipulated as sheep into working hard and paying hard for their own demise while refusing to even imagine the ultimate sacrifice of America to gods of the New World Order. That’s about it, the rest is lies. Sometimes pretty lies, blinding we’re-number-one lies, trust-us lies. “Terrorists!” lies, and reassuring lies…but always, lies.
Two thousand years ago, five centuries before the collapse of Rome, Tiberius Caesar announced, “I want my sheep shorn, not shaven.” In America, especially since the sheep have just been gored for another trillion dollars—this time to reward financial mavens for catastrophic economic effects of their sheer greed, virtually no taxpayer benefit, American shears have been covered with skin, blood, meat.
The sheep are stirring. But the “Raiders”, First Brigade Combat Team of the Army’s Third Division, deployed on home soil as of October 1, have been specially trained to use the first-ever modular, nonlethal package of weapons the Army has fielded. Under command of US Army North, the Army’s component of NorthCom—the Pentagon’s northern command, which was created after 9/11 to defend the US “homeland”, the Raiders, in gross violation of posse comitatus, will aid local, state and federal authorities in crowd control.
So the sheep might bleat and stir, but serious revolt—any meaningful kinds of protest granted as rights under the Constitution—are likely to face the new package of nonlethal weapons. 1st BCT’s Raiders are 4000 combat-seasoned troops fresh from three tours of duty in Iraq; an elite killing force deployed at home to subdue the unruly and dangerous without killing them. Unruly and dangerous, in “elite-speak” means anyone who cares enough about the scuttling of America to do something that might actually help…people who understand that in the horrors of the last eight years there have been no accidents. America is where it is by design.
What is this new modular package of nonlethal weapons the Raiders will be employing; what might a protester experience if subjected to Raider kinds of crowd control? Microwaves to make their skin feel aflame. Lasers to scramble their vision. Ballistic beanbags to knock out their wind, or medium-range aluminum pellets for savage electric shocks. There’s radio frequency and acoustic weapons to vibrate their internal organs. Curdler units and squawk boxes to menace their brain through their ears…. With many of these new crowd control devices the line between nonlethal and lethal is a fine one—but who said citizens should be protesting in the first place?
The Constitution has provisions for the people to save themselves from tyranny, from a government out of control. Founders of our Democratic Republic went to elaborate lengths to safeguard the people from government—and these were brilliant men, highly-educated intellectuals such as we so desperately need working for the common good. But the safeguards have been methodically gutted to “protect people from terrorists”—a sacrifice-of-freedom-for-safety subterfuge leading most insidiously toward criminalizing dissent. If you protest the way citizens must if a Democratic Republic is to be preserved, you can now be declared an enemy combatant….
The “peoples’” government finally, exclusively and ultimately belongs to the elite. Sure, the people just voted to choose a new leader, were pacified with illusions of a voice—even pacified with a “win”. But our new leader has long been property of the elite, chosen by the elite before the people even got a look at the goods. He owes the elite everything, owes the people nothing, and we are left holding a bag marked HOPE, and, CHANGE, hoping it is not empty.
Perhaps the reason that the recent presidential “election” was not such an obvious exercise in GOP fraud as the two that installed this person as Commander In Chief is sheer raw power of the Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg, and Council On Foreign Relations variety. Ultimate, elite power that few Americans are even aware of.
And regarding the new “nonlethal” package of weapons ready for deployment against Americans in America…as far back as 1970, importance of such technology was being touted, tools for the elites in managing a society that would become increasingly controlled and directed. While still a professor at Columbia University, future U.S. National Security Advisor under President Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was quoted as saying:
“Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits.” (also: The Military’s Pandora’s Box)
This is the same Brzezinski who, along with David Rockefeller, created the Illuminati’s Trilateral Commission in 1973. Dedicated to a fascist dictatorship one world government, the Trilateral Commission is symbiotic with the Bilderberg Group, and the Council on Foreign Relations (please see: The Goodbye Republic ).
The same Russian-hating Brzezinski who was often closeted during the Carter administration because of his nihilist “Dr. Strangelove” persona…same man who was back at Columbia a few years later as advisor for Obama’s senior thesis. Webster G. Tarpley’s new book, Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography includes much about the fairly closeted Obama/Brzezinski relationship; Endgame, Part One of Eric Larsen’s review of the book enhances the experience like cream to tea.
At no time in American history have the people faced a challenge of such overwhelming magnitude. Menace from within jeopardizing the very remains of our Constitutional Republic, and at no time have Americans been less up to the challenge. Our two greatest assets are intelligence, and sheer numbers, in that order. We stand doomed, and in great majority, in that order—or so it seems. Neutralizing our numerical advantage is the playground of all the exotic new weapons; the dumbing down of America has been the most successful of federal programs.
How successful? Americans have been stupefied into voting for politicians who play up ignorance as a virtue. Nearly 50 million Americans recently voted to have Sarah Palin an inevitable cancer cell replication away from being, “Jeez!” Commander In Chief. Yes, almost 50 million votes for “The Chick” who thinks Africa is a nation—and how many of those voters might imagine that in fact, Africa is a continent (continent…is that like a condiment)? One in five thinks the sun orbits the earth. Despite serious evidence that earth is far older than six thousand years, among “rich” countries, America has by far the highest, and the fastest growing percentage of Christian fundamentalists—a pathetic majority of which lack significant understanding of their chosen religion. Almost two-thirds of Americans want creationism taught in school beside evolution. A survey ten years ago by the University of Texas revealed that one in four biology teachers in the state’s public schools believed that humans and dinosaurs coexisted. The examples are as shocking and numerous as the anti-moron alerts that come with “dangerous” consumer goods such as kitchen ranges, warning consumers not to lay a baby on a hot burner….
Comic Relief Alert!…where would the Darwin Awards be without Americans?
It’s gotten so bad that a mushrooming generalized hostility toward knowledge has joined with popular belief that evidence does not matter, only opinion…and the result is widespread illusion that truth is what you want it to be. Ignorance and stupidity, if they even matter, are desirable.
That gets us to 9/11, and to profoundly dumbed-down America still choosing to ignore evidence in favor of Official Fairytales. This kind of irrationality is crucial to the elite’s New World Order plans for taking over the planet—plans that could be jeopardized without the citizenry’s essential ignorance and stupidity so meticulously nurtured by the elite.
For the people, on the other hand, three collective improvements seem crucial for Americans to have any hope of saving the Republic—of saving ourselves and any vital creative impulse:
1) Mass exposure of 9/11 truth through mass exposure of the actual evidence. Shine the exposed reality upon evil spawn of 9/11 such as the war on terror (permanent war), and mangling of the Constitution. Let the truth help burn from the American psyche the very concept: “Oh! They’d never do that!” In a pathocracy such as ours, there is virtually nothing they wouldn’t do…except for consistently telling the truth.
2) Establish a new education and awareness paradigm. To a large extent this could involve simply putting into reverse the massive federal stealth program of dumbing down Americans. Value learning. Keep faith and facts separate; enforce separation of church and state. Embrace science. Shun mainstream corporate media—especially television. Reward independent thinking.
3) Immediately restore the American Hemp Industry. Hemp has saved us before, and now promises a gateway toward a sustainable economic foundation actually in harmony with life. An economy that values people and the environment over elite power concentration and corporate profit. Sunshine, water, soil, hemp and creativity mean power to the People. ( King Hemp ).
