A Merchant's Committee was formed.

A letter to the editor of the Cannon Wire.
The criminal/civil court room for the county is an appropriate place for the merchants meeting.

Desperate times call for brainstorming sessions. Local merchants are coming together to try and figure out how to attract more business.

The bottom line is the question "How do we survive?"

The town of Woodbury, TN is discussing allowing beer sales to gain some tax revenue. After being a 'dry' city for over 80 years it shows that anything goes in the search for more money.

I'm thinking that Woodbury is fairly typical of small town America. The lifestyle of the middle class is deteriorating quickly. The poor need food stamps and food banks and .....

The good sign is that people are coming together to talk and think about their situation.

It starts locally. The thing is that the discussions cannot stop at trying to bring income in but must progress to why are we in this situation.

The hard working people of this county are not the cause of this mess we are in.

They do have a choice to become a part of the solution.

We, our children and grandchildren can never pay back the debts that are forcibly imposed upon us.

Ask yourself one question?

Does the government and main stream media ever lie? If you can think of one instance that they do, and I'm sure you can, then ask yourself why we should believe anything they say.

Stimulus packages, bailouts to banks, wars. Taxes, the IRS, the Federal Reserve. Homeland security, energy, environment. War on Terror, war on drugs, the war on the US constitution.

In all of this mix is lies and truths.

Not addressing the lies means that the criminals and the corrupt will continue to take the American public and the good folks of Woodbury down the road to debt slavery without a voice.

Not speaking up, not taking action against the root causes will mean that the merchants meetings will only end up being therapy sessions for the dying.

The Banker’s Manifesto

Then and Now

by Incog Man

J. P. Morgan going off at some heckler or paparazzi. Morgan had a bulbous, grotesquely misshapen schnoz — purplish and covered with bumps — due to a disease called rhinophyma (or greed?) and his portraits were always heavily retouched to hide it (above left).

Everybody today, it seems, is getting extremely worried about the state of the economy in the near future, but what they forget is that many people have warned us about all this in the past.* One often discussed scenario held that those behind the curtain would artificially create a Great Depression and destroy the dollar, so as to roll out the North American Union and the replacement currency, the Amero in 2010. With all of us begging for relief, we would happily forfeit our precious Constitutional rights and accept slavery.

But most of the sheep out in TV land, laughed it all off as nothing but ”Conspiracy Theory,” just like they always do, right along with forgetting all the business that got this country to this point: The 1965 Immigration Act, NAFTA, Pax Americana and the Neocons, the rise of the Police State using “Terrorist” paranoia to steal your rights – right along with the on-going build-up of the Homeland Security infrastructure that can easily be turned against you for real. Americans have such pathetically short memories.

Even when people like Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve Chairman, recently told Congressman Ron Paul that the Fed started the Great Depression in 1929 by purposefully manipulating credit, this admission goes completely over most people’s heads (Milton Friedman also said as much).

The real powers behind the curtain want you sheep to stay befuddled and out of it. You can readily see this because the background to Central banking and the Fed has always been a verbotten subject to talk about in mainstream media, like the History channel. They don’t want the peons to get wise to the real deal. Read on peons…

By now, it should be quite obvious to what is going on. They’ve been ratcheting up the control, all the “Patriot Acts” and FISA bills, while placing another controlled puppet into the White House. This new puppet, the fast-talking mulatto Barry Soetoro, will utilize the Useful Idiots, crazed with Obama mania and liberal diversity fervor, to politically intimidate and silence the rapidly growing awareness of the American public to the people who have been behind it all from day-one.

Congressman Lindburgh and his son "Lucky Lindy."

Congressman Lindbergh and his son "Lucky Lindy."

We’ve been warned about this since the very earliest days: Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. (father of famous aviator “Lucky Lindy,” the first to cross the Atlantic) stated following the passing of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, 1913: “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized… The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.” He later revealed the Bankers Manifesto of 1892 to the U.S. Congress:

We [the bankers] must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.

Organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

At the coming Omaha convention to be held July 4, 1892, our men must attend and direct its movement or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome.

This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination [conspiracy] and legislation.

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

When, through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers.

People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete actions, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished. Source

The above was taken from the “Banker’s Manifest”, for the private circulation among leading bankers only, taken from the “Civil Servants’ Year Book, “The Organizer” of January, 1934. The Banker’s Manifesto ties in with U.S. Senate Document No. 43, 73rd Congress, 1st Session (1934), to wit:

“The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called “ownership” is only by virtue of Government, i.e., law, amounting to mere “user” and use must be in acceptance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State.”

The following is quoted from John Prukop of the Coalition of a Constitutional Washington:

The “plan” is to control all resources, human and natural. The control is not by elected public officials, but by a self-appointed oligarchy. This is born out by reading the details of Article 21 and 39 of the “Convention On Biological Diversity.” This treaty declares there are no reservation of rights. Article 21 mandates that three international organizations, the UNEP, UNDP and the World Bank, will direct and control “the policy, strategy, programme priorities and eligibility criteria relating to access to and utilization of resources” in each member country.

Back in the early years of the 20th century, J. P. Morgan acted as the Goyim front man for the Banking cabal and, at the time of his death, it’s said that only 17% of Morgan’s assets actually belonged to him, with the rest a part of the Rothschild financial empire. The Rothschilds are closely associated with other Jews in Europe like the Warburgs, the Schiffs, the Lazard brothers in France, Moses Seif in Italy. These are the real people behind the curtain and always have been.

Recently, JP Morgan Chase received the assets of Lehman Brothers in a deal brokered by the government and the Federal Reserve. Washington Mutual, AIG, and Wachovia Bank are also being consolidated into an ever smaller number of super banks that are all now controlled by a cabal of bankers, the same cabal that controls the Federal Reserve.

It's Pity Party Time: "An ugly bias is back: blaming Jews for financial woes"

by Greg Bacon

Cue the violins, us mean and nasty GOY are asking hard questions about the perpetual victim, the Jews.
An ugly bias is back: blaming Jews for financial woes

Conspiracy claims die hard. But responsibility lies with all of us. Brad A. Greenberg February 27, 2009

LOS ANGELES - The stereotype of the money-grubbing Jew goes back a long way. Zacchaeus was a greedy little tax collector. Fagin was a hideous creature who forced orphans into his organized network of pickpockets. And Shylock, perhaps the most infamous Jewish moneylender of all? Well his avarice ran so deep that he demanded a "pound of flesh" from an indebted Venetian merchant.

Canonized in the Christian Bible and two classics of English literature, these characters reinforce prejudices that Jews have struggled against for centuries. This scapegoating has been particularly venomous during difficult economic times. And these are those times.

Scapegoating? Is that like calling someone "anti-Semitic" anytime they point out the connections between financial swindles and the Jews behind the swindles?
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reported Feb. 10 that a survey of 500 people in each of seven European countries – Austria, France, Hungary, Poland, Germany, Spain, and Britain – found that 40 percent felt Jews have too much power in business and nearly a third blamed Jews for the global financial crisis.

Though the ADL has not surveyed American anti-Semitism since 2007 – when 18 percent shared the sentiment that Jews have "too much control/influence on Wall Street" – the Jewish defense organization reported a spike in anti-Semitic chatter online after Wall Street collapsed last September.

Mr. GREENBERG, why not explain to your readers about the Federal Reserve? How the last head, Alan GREENSPAN is a Jew and the current head, Ben SHALOM Bernanke, is a Jew.

Add in the fact that of the six board of governor seats, five are held by Jews. What's that, I'm being "anti-Semitic" for pointing out the obvious?

And that was before anti-Semites were gifted their poster boy for Jewish grifting. In December, Bernard Madoff confirmed every suspicion about Jewish moneylenders when he reportedly admitted to running a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

Uhh, don't forget to add in that Madoff shipped a lot of that stolen loot to Israel. Damn, their I go again, being "anti-Semitic."
Crooked. Evil. Innately able to rob you blind while shaking your hand and smiling.

"Is Bernard Madoff Jewish? Very. Oy," a headline from Los Angeles's Jewish Journal responded the day after his arrest.

Jews have lived more comfortably and prosperously here than anywhere else, but even American Jews can't escape the stereotype that they are, at best, penny-pinching cheapskates or, far worst, immoral monetary manipulators.

Today, Jews make big money and are bigwigs in, among other influential professions, the financial industry. But much as "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" would like you to believe otherwise, the connection between Jews and money is more complicated than a worldwide conspiracy to control the financial markets. (Shocking, I know.)

Let's add in a little historical perspective here. Like showing who helped formulate and push the lies the Bush White House used to invade an "existential" enemy of Israel, Iraq.

Which shows the troubling and incestous relationshihp between money and politics. Control the money and you'll control the political show. Control that and you'll have a firm grip on the Pentagon.

America in Critical Condition

by C.J. Graham

"If the American People ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..." --Thomas Jefferson

The Illness

America has virulent cancer.

She suffers a malignant malevolent tumor, a heartless soulless abomination to her humanity; the cancer of globalism. This flawed ideology, communistic in nature, is hell bent on invading and destroying the heart, mind and soul of our beloved nation. Where freedom and hope, ingenuity and motivation now stand hobbled by corrupting influences, globalists, like ravenous locusts, conspire to leave behind desolation and devastation.

To the globally focused elite, our citizens, the unwashed masses, mere peasants, are nothing more than cattle to be bought, manipulated to toil, spend, and fund. To the Gods of Globalism, nations are a marketplace and people are the slaves; with the predictable outcome, tyranny.

There is no human dignity in being a people without a nation, freedom, or self determination. Humans cannot thrive without an identity or community. We cannot flourish without the hope of something greater for our progeny then for ourselves.

There are no human rights in being used as a unit of labor, worked into senility, plundered, ravaged and cast aside for the next replacement, one with less demands and fewer complications. The elites are the framers and benefactors of globalism. The citizens subjected to this ideology; the victims.

Americans are currently living under the illusion of ‘representation,’ by such globalists. Let me be very clear, globalists are not Americans. To embrace a loss of sovereignty, an end to nation states, and the beloved work of our Founding Fathers, is disloyal and treasonous.

You cannot be an American and live the American idea if you are espousing globalist rhetoric; these two ideologies are in direct conflict one with another.

It would seem the globalists are willing to sacrifice a few Americans (collateral damage) for this new global realignment. After all, what are a few homeless American children and senior citizens in the grand scheme of things? The Gods of Globalism have higher ideas, you see.

Like cockroaches, globalists have infiltrated every aspect of the American experience from government to education, entertainment, media, social programs, health care and finance. They have come into our collective psyche with outstretched hands, promising change and social responsibility and bringing nothing more than third world slavery, inferior products, poverty, homelessness, racial tensions, divisiveness and distrust. This strategy is being played out across the globe and the resultant chaos is clear.

Playing their hands quietly, patiently, and meticulously, the Gods of Globalism plot each step and wait for the uproar of an outraged people. When it does not come, they advance, incrementally, unobtrusively, so as not to be threatening; allowing the innocent time to become accustomed to them and to adjust their thinking and tolerance levels.

The global elites do not wish to co-exist with us; they want to dominate and control every aspect of our lives and our humanity. Little by little, while we were working, raising children, living our American dream, and paying taxes, they were laying the ground work against our sovereignty.

The War on Wall Street Terror

By Jerry Mazza

It’s funny that during the run-up to the first War on Terror, Wall Street had such an active hand in exploiting the tragedy of 9/11. Thousands upon thousands of puts short-sold United and American Airlines stocks and WTC-based Morgan Stanley stock plunged; similarly calls (bets to rise) on defense and related stocks sent them soaring on that awful day, the War on Terror’s inciting incident.

Today, we can count on Wall Street again to supply us with what Warren Buffett calls Weapons of Mass Financial Destruction to strike terror not just in the hearts of investors, but workers, businessmen, retired people, the unemployed, the middle-and-working classes and the poor, leaving our financial system like another Ground Zero, with masses of open-mouthed crowds and teary-eyed families hovering about it, losing resources and jobs that took a lifetime to grow.

We’ve come so easily to live with terms like derivates, credit default swaps, subprime lending, toxic mortgages, collateralized debt obligations, all of which we’re told by the OTHER KATHERINE HARRIS add up to some “$1.4 Quadrillion, more money than there is in all the world (at least till Ben Bernanke turned on the printing press lately).” They are lethal in the extreme, created by a shadow market, a criminal market, designed to loot our financial system.

These are instruments of debt created for profit, by a handful of big banksters and credit companies, knowing how harmful they could be to banking, mortgage lending, and any credit institutions. Salesmen for the aforementioned made beaucoup cash on commissions, shoving them downstream to investment banks, securities and bond firms, and watching them collateralized into stocks and bonds, sold into corporate, union, institutional and private portfolios, retirement funds, IRAs, 401Ks, name it.

As with 9/11, these were not demonized Muslims with box-cutters who brought the financial system down like the World Trade Center. These were greedy salesmen, morally-bankrupt brokers, bankers, investment managers who spread the word, as Bernard Madoff did, to profit-anxious clients, friends, religious organizations, schools, foundations, and so on. These were and continue to be the true terrorists, homegrown, heartless, even your neighbor, working in their cells to topple our financial system. Was it a conspiracy? If you define that word as a group of people working towards common ends that would harm millions of people, yes, it was a conspiracy.

Brown signs 'London Declaration' to fight righteous 'anti-semitism'

Condemning those who oppose Organized Jewry, criticize Jews and expose Holohoax.

How long before these calls of declaration to eliminate free speech concerning history and the present Jewish/Zionist affairs come to the US?

Brown signs declaration against anti-Semitism

February 25, 2009

LONDON (JTA) -- Britain’s prime minister became the first world leader to sign the London Declaration on combating anti-Semitism.

The measure was adopted last week in the British capital by 125 legislators from more than 40 countries at a coalition meeting to combat anti-Semitism.

On signing the declaration, Gordon Brown said, “So many of the principles it enshrines are already things we are doing here in Britain, and while I’m proud of the bold action Britain has taken to combat anti-Semitism such as improved reporting, prosecutions for anti-Semitic Internet hate and the funding of Holocaust education in schools, there is no room for complacency.

He noted that the Department for Communities and Local Government is organizing an event at Beth Shalom, the Holocaust Center, to look in detail at how the government can implement the declaration.

"I encourage other heads of government to become signatories to this historic agreement," Brown said. "Ttogether our renewed efforts can rid the world of this ancient virus."

The London Declaration called on legislators to “expose, challenge and isolate political actors who engage in hate against Jews and target the State of Israel as a Jewish collectivity.” It also calls on governments to “challenge any foreign leader, politician or public figure who denies, denigrates or trivializes the Holocaust and must encourage civil society to be vigilant to this phenomenon and to openly condemn it.”

The London Declaration also calls on the United Nations to” reaffirm its call for every member state to commit itself to the principles laid out in the Holocaust Remembrance initiative, including specific and targeted policies to eradicate Holocaust denial and trivialization.” It also calls for action on education for the public and the authorities.

Mama, your babies grew up to be cowboys

Or soldiers.

Undated file photo provided by the US Air Force shows flag-draped coffins of US casualties from Iraq being offloaded by a military honor guard from a cargo plane in Dover, Delaware
President George H Bush imposed the ban during the first Gulf war in 1991

The US defense department has lifted a ban on news organizations showing pictures of the coffins of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Defence Secretary Robert Gates said photographs of the flag-draped caskets of US war dead being returned home will be allowed if their families agree.

The move overturns a ban put in place by President George Bush Snr in 1991.

Critics said the ban tried to hide the human cost of the two wars, in which nearly 5,000 US soldiers have died.

"The decision regarding media coverage of the dignified transfer process at Dover [Air Force Base] should be made by those most directly affected, on an individual basis, by the families of the fallen," Mr Gates said.

Flag draped impersonal coffins are OK but real photos of those who died for the sick perpetrators of war won't be seen and talked about by Katie Couric or the Fox girls.

Until the majority of Americans can face up to the facts that the modern day 'cowboys' have been sacrificed for greed and empire, the wars will never end.

Please mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be pawns in the web of deceit.

That flag draped coffin photo published in your local newspaper will do nothing to ease your pain.

Muddying the waters

A scene of peace and prosperity at the local level.


The shadows from a sun hidden by the hills can be cold and uninviting in the depth of winter or a cooling relief from the heat of summer.


Those scenes can be interrupted by the downpour of a raging storm that can turn a benign little creek into a raging river.


The above creek is maybe only at 10% of the potential flooding that it has seen in the past.

The analogy is that despite the beauty that surrounds us, the threat of a flood that will overwhelm us is always there.

If we look, we see that nature reflects what can and is happening in our society. In most places there is no dam to hold back the flood waters. We can walk out of the shadows for warmth or into them to hide, even though we don't like the cold and darkness.

During a storm the waters are muddied.

We can only hope that the storm will subside and the waters clear so we can see the bottom.

What we see will depend on our perspective and what actions we took during the storm.

The Economic Crimes Require Revolution

Let's start with some insights about the banking crimes.

Will Grigg in A "Reckoning" Amid the Wreckage states:

Pointless expenditures on space exploration or construction of monuments to the vanity of the ruling class would actually make more sense than the Regime's present course, which is to ruin the currency in a doomed effort to save a failing and terminally insolvent banking system.

The $3.8 trillion budget disgorged by the regime of Obama the Magnanimous -- a document bearing the trans-Orwellian title "A New Era of Responsibility" -- includes a budget deficit of nearly $1.8 trillion. That's a figure, as the observant Anthony Gregory points out, roughly equivalent to the entire federal budget in the year 2000.

When budgets and annual deficits go hyperbolic, hyperinflation is sure to follow. But the cruelly amusing fact is that neither Obama nor the gallery of trained seals called Congress is in charge of the public purse.

Sure, Obama can propose a budget and Congress can ratify it on a party-line vote, but the real economic power now resides with the Commissar for Official Counterfeiting, Ben Bernanke, and the Commissar for Fiscal Fraud, Tim Geithner.

Obama is seeking to salve the electorate's economic wounds with oleaginous words about hope, change, and determination. Meanwhile, Geithner -- as pure a product of the bankster elite as ever drew an undeserved breath -- is "finishing touches on a plan that will dump $1 trillion of toxic assets on the US taxpayer," warns Mike Whitney of CounterPunch. "The plan, which goes by the opaque moniker [of] the `Public-Private Investment Fund' (PPIF), is designed to provide lavish incentives to hedge funds and private equity funds to purchase bad assets from failing banks. It is a sweetheart deal that that provides government financing and guarantees for illiquid mortgage-backed junk for which there is no active market."

There is other mischief afoot behind the obscuring barricade of official acronyms.

No, he doesn't know what he's doing, either: A visibly stressed Tim Geithner (right foreground) testifies before Congress.

What Obama apparently meant by "Day of Reckoning," however, was something along these lines: "My squanderlust predecessor somehow neglected to destroy every pocket of prosperity and productivity left in this economy -- so I reckon it's up to me to finish that job."

When the actual Day of Reckoning arrives, one of three scenarios will play out:

*Sanity will seize our population and our chastened political class will restore the foundations of the pre-1913 (or, better yet, pre-1861) political system.

Yeah, I don't think so either, but it is a possibility.

*The productive elements of the population will divorce themselves from the parasitical ruling class and its client constituencies, eventually creating some kind of loose confederation. While the parasites won't surrender their host without a violent struggle, this is probably the best we can hope for.

*We'll see the Regime continue to inflate, spend, and regiment the population until we achieve the ne plus ultra of Keynesian economics: The government will achieve full employment by forcing all of us to build immense pyramids out of its useless, unwanted fiat currency. more

Greg Bacon in AIG, The Stanford Group and Israel: Cozy as Bedbugs wonders if much of the missing trillions in stolen assets wound up in Israel.

Wall Street loses trillions of dollars, mostly from elderly stockholders and pension funds and no one seems to know where all that loot disappeared to?

It didn't evaporate, but it sure as hell is gone. Some reports put the money stolen, oops, missing from banks and accounts around the world at over 20 TRILLION dollars.

Where has all of that money in those 401K accounts and pension funds got off to?

Welcome to IDC Herzliya held each year in Israel.

"The Herzliya Conference is Israel‘s primary global policy annual gathering, drawing together Israeli and international participants from the highest levels of government, business, and academia to address pressing national, regional and world strategic issues."

Heavy emphasis on business, especially Wall Street banks.

"Sir" Allen and the Stanford Group

Another investment fund, the Stanford Group goes "Uh-Oh", billions of dollars disappear and who's to blame?

Maybe you should look at the recent Ninth Annual Herzliya Conference held in Israel, February 2-4, 2009 and attended by members of the Stanford Group.

Yes, that Stanford Group that seems to have lost at least 8 BILLION dollars of investors money.

Amazing. Yes, simply amazing. Wonder where all that money that disappeared from Wall Street 401K accounts and retirement fund went to?

Any guesses?

The only one missing from this "Swindler's List," is Bernie Madoff. But Bernie had already spirited much of the 50-100 BILLION in stolen loot back to the Mother Ship.

Besides hauling the loot to Israel, Bernie found time to spend some of that money on luxury homes.

Think any of that plunder made it back to the USA and into the pockets of our corrupt Congress?

Or maybe this is the "Clean Break: Securing the Realm" scenario talked about where Israel gets some type of outside money to permanently prop up that racist and apartheid, Jews only state.

A document written by some of the same thugs that lied the US into the Iraq War.

Thugs like, David Wurmser, Doug Feith and Richard Perle.

The Clean Break document here, says that "...[financial] self-reliance will grant Israel greater freedom of action and remove a significant lever of pressure used against it in the past."

20 TRILLION dollars would keep Israel on its war mongering path for decades to come.

Patrick Martin
speaks of our government as bankrupt and how Pentagon spending exacerbates the banker thefts.

For all Obama's rhetoric about renewing and reviving the economy, the budget figures have a stark meaning: the US government is bankrupt, the US economy moribund. The crash of 2008 marks, not a conjunctural crisis, even of immense magnitude, but a turning point, one that marks the long-term decline of American capitalism and the irreversible loss of its position of world domination.

The White House has ended the Bush administration practice of excluding the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from the regular budget, and financing the wars through so-called emergency spending bills passed separately. Obama hailed this action as truth in budgeting, although he will nonetheless request a supplemental appropriation for the two wars, supposedly the last such effort, totaling $75 billion for the current year.

The ten-year projection nonetheless shows total Pentagon spending rising steadily, despite the assumed end to combat operations in Iraq, reaching the staggering total of $872 billion by 2019. Over the entire ten-year period, total US military spending is projected at nearly $8 trillion, a sum greater than the entire GDP of any other country on the planet.

Much publicity has been given to claims that the Obama budget allows Pentagon spending to rise by only 4 percent in 2010, and thereafter 2 percent annually, compared to a 7 percent rate of increase for domestic spending. This is largely a statistical fiction, caused by the assumed decline in spending in Iraq. The baseline Pentagon budget, excluding Iraq and Afghanistan, will rise from $557 billion this year to $689 billion in 2012, a 24 percent increase during Obama's first term in office.

The bloated military budget is likely to swell to even greater proportions. The budget document explicitly declares that the reduction in spending on Iraq and Afghanistan is merely an assumption for the purpose of making estimates, and does not reflect any actual policy decisions to withdraw or redeploy US troops.

In the course of the Bush administration's "war on terror," total Pentagon outlays rose so sharply that they came to exceed the combined total of all other discretionary government spending (i.e., spending that is not already required by law, such as payments under Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other "entitlement" programs.) The Obama administration budget confirms and extends this supremacy of guns over butter: Pentagon spending will exceed all other discretionary spending in each of the next ten years, and the discrepancy will grow wider year by year. more

We could on and on with examples of the criminal activities of the bankers and government but sooner or later it comes down to what are we going to do. Bow down to the 'masters' and take our slavery in stride? Give up our children and grandchildren to being indentured servants with no knowledge of what a little freedom is?

Ed Encho at The Existentialist Cowboy is mad and knows that it's up to us to do something, or die on the vine.

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

-H. L. Mencken

The fascist controllers are in full recognition of the rising tide of anger that is the result of economic despair brought on by a rotted and failed system. I would suggest that any who may have some degree of doubt about the coming reaping of the whirlwind her in Der Homeland only take a look around them for signs. In a couple of recent articles that I personally find relevant, Michael Klare’s A Planet On The Brink and Chris Hedges’ Bad News From America’s Top Spy. The observation that the political unrest that is currently occurring outside our little flag draped cocoon of ignorance and denial will soon be coming to America. An additional reading assignment is this article from The Guardian entitled Summer of Rage.

In layman’s terms, the state is soon going to be weaponized by the very parasites who have sucked the country dry and sold us all out for chump change and are going to make damned sure that the rabble is put down like rabid dogs when the time comes. Now that Posse Comitatus has been rendered irrelevant and the new programs that grew out of the shadow government’s prototype REX 84, Cable Splicer and Garden Plot martial law plans are ready to be implemented. The trap is about to slam shut just at the time that a growing number of the general public is finally starting to get the point that the late, great George Carlin articulated so greatly in his epic rant about who really owns America:

Forget the politicians. They're irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They've got the judges in their back pockets. They own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls!

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. That's against their interest. That's right.

You know something? They don't want people who are smart enough sitting around the kitchen table to figure out they're getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard thirty fucking years ago. They don't want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paper work, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

And now they're coming for your Social Security money. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all from you sooner or later. Because they own this fucking place. It's a big club... and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club.

By the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long, beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table is tilted folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard working people. Blue collar, white collar, doesn't matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard working people continue... these are people of modest means... continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don't give a fuck about them. They don't give a fuck about you. They don't give a fuck about you. They don't care about you. At all. At all. At all. And nobody seems to notice. And nobody seems to care.

That's what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will remain wilfully ignorant about the big red, white and blue dick that is being shoved up their ass every day. Because the owners know the truth. It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Divide and conquer is the oldest tactic in the book. This strategy is playing out right now as the guardians of the oligarchy use their bought and paid for corporate media pulpits to propagandize and deceive. Notable is FOX News' involvement in fomenting violence and seeking to splinter and confuse the victims of the grand Ponzi scheme into attacking each other rather than the real cause of their misery. Glenn Greenwald addressed this in his recent piece entitled Fox News "war games" the coming civil war.

In a flaming Fox News extravaganza, bursting at the seams with more than the usual fascist bullshit dime store demagogue Glenn Beck (the former local Tampa Bay hack who used to specialize in staging ‘big eater’ runs prior to being called up to the hatemongering big leagues) spoke of a coming civil war. The GOP Gladio (the reference is to a famous fascist WW II stay behind operation) will be led by get this – “bubba” militias aka the dregs of WASP society out to get some payback against that Commie, Muslim ‘nigger’ in the White House, armed to the teeth and jacked up on a mixture of Jesus juice, horny goat weed and home brewed methamphetamine. The really slick and Rovian shrewdness of this dastardly black propaganda operation is the intent to fragment the growing resistance movement by attempting to peel off the anti-imperialist, anti-globalist, anti-Federal Reserve types that have most recently found a haven in the Ron Paul libertarian camp. The same sort of folks that Herr Beck had previously decried as kooks, dangerous extremists, terrorist sympathizers and anarchists back when the Bushreich was still in power.

FOX’s War Games project has in addition to Beck recruited a veritable rogues gallery of racists, operatives and military industrial complex information warriors like the ‘former’ CIA agent and Osama bin Laden groupie Michael ‘kill ‘em all’ Scheuer, on call Pentagon pimp Tim Strong and a gaggle of other so-called ‘experts’ who wear their fascism on their sleeves. Fox also cannily offers airtime to Congressman Paul along with trends forecasting guru and self proclaimed "political atheist" Gerald Celente (who I happen to be a big fan of) in order to launder their disinfo through a cheesecloth thin guise of semi-legitimacy. Make no mistake though, these people are the modern day heirs to the same fascist traitors who once tried to overthrow Roosevelt by recruiting former Marine Corps General Smedley D. Butler to lead a coup d'etat (known as the Business Plot) against the legitimately elected government of the United States. Butler, a loyal American played coy, gathered intel and then ratted those disloyal scum out as the enemies within that they were then and their legacy remains to this day.

Revolutionary Moi

When the shit really doe shit the fan you can count me in with the folks who are smarter than the ones who are duped by the tinpot despots, their drooling demagogues and the ‘bubba’ militias who will be out there targeting libruls as the new Juden. Hell, bring the cocksuckers on, they will get a twelve-gauge enema form me and many others who are not too stupid to be suckered by the rulers of chumpland. Count me in with the people who pumped their fists in the air over Bill Maher’s ‘joke’ about killing two bankers. But as a sworn enemy of tyranny, fascist oppression and the looting bastard parasites that Thomas Jefferson warned of:

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

And I might say…why only two?

Were George Washington, Jefferson and the rest of the revolutionary patriots who founded this country in casting off the yoke of slavery of the king and his paper merchants still around there wouldn’t be enough lampposts and trees to hang these fuckers from. Hell, let’s have a full-blown, storm the Bastille French style REVOLUTION!! Eat the rich, roll out the guillotines and let the fun begin. We can even ‘invite’ Glenn Beck, Rick Santelli and the other fascist stooges to help with the testing process. I mean, don’t we want to get the guillotine settings just right in regards to calibrating the blade drop for maximum efficiency before we get to the filthy looters themselves? Shit, why not ‘invite’ ALL of the mouthpieces for the four-flushing bastards who have destroyed this country and now are trying to implement their police state to ‘blow the roof’ while they slither off to Dubai or some other refuge with no extradition treaty? They hanged Julius Steicher at Nuremberg didn’t they? Did he really ever personally kill any Jews or did his propaganda rag Der Stürmer only make him an accomplice to the mass murders? Shit, Charles Manson killed fewer people than George W. Bush and one is on spending his fourth decade on death row while the other is already racking up future appearances on the speaking circuit.

What the fuck?

I will close now with this, I am not exactly sure of where exactly where it came from but I really like it:

There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty:


Please Use in that order

(editor's note, be sure to stockpile #4)

This is a revolution call, a call to arms and the scourging of the fascists, the conniving banksters and the oligarchy that has declared war on US, the American people. Heed this call and we can reclaim our legacy as a free people as well as our cherished birthright –

Obama's 2nd Amendment Assault Unfolds"A semi-automatic is a quintessential self-defense firearm owned by American citizens in this country," Wayne LaPierre, president of the National Rifle Association said. "I think it is clearly covered under Heller and it's clearly, I think, protected by the Constitution."

I don't just think, I know that semi-automatics are not only constitutional but they also pose a threat to the agenda of disarming the populace.

The Obama Administration continues to be fairly upfront in it's agenda towards the 2nd amendment. Puppet Attorney General Eric Holder says "As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons."

First things first. High capacity semi-automatics are formidable weapons. They can make those who might want to manipulate us for their gain think twice about turning the dogs loose.

If successful on this ban, what would be next?

There's always a 'next' in the assault on our rights.

Disarming us is an important step in the plan.

As A. Peasant says, their plan is in danger;

They think that they will survive and we will perish. They think they have it all figured out. They have the money, they have the weapons, they have the media, they have the will. They want to take us all down and grind us under their boots.

Imagine their surprise when it doesn't work out. Relish that thought. Hold it in your mind and savor it, because it will come to pass. One of these days we're going to eat these pigs for supper, and they'll feed the whole world. more

Never Fear, the Carbon Cap and Trade Scheme is Here

Save the world and cut taxes at the same time. What a great idea. Too bad it's a scam.

There are many pollution and environmental issues that need to be addressed. We all want to live in a clean world. The dirtiest area in our country is Washington DC.

The UN’s Agenda 21, which clearly calls for a global carbon tax which will ultimately undermine the sovereignty of our Great Republic and oil the gears of fascism. We have been expecting a carbon tax to be introduced since the Earth Summit of 1992 to be exact … far beyond the global warming propaganda of the mainstream controlled media.

Gore business: 2,340 climate lobbyists

A Center for Public Integrity analysis of Senate lobbying disclosure forms shows that more than 770 companies and interest groups hired an estimated 2,340 lobbyists to influence federal policy on climate change in the past year, as the issue gathered momentum and a bill came to a vote in Congress.

That’s an increase of more than 300 percent in the number of global warming lobbyists since 2003, when Congress previously voted on climate change legislation, and means that Washington can now boast more than four climate lobbyists for every member of Congress.

It also means that 15 percent of all Washington lobbyists spent at least some of their time on global warming last year, based on a tally of the total number of influence peddlers on Capitol Hill by the Center for Responsive Politics.

When giants such as General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Alcoa and DuPont are on record favoring so-called cap-and-trade legislation, “it moves the politics on this issue to a new place,” said Eileen Claussen, president of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. source

When the giants of corporate America favor such scams and the lobbyists keep the bribe money flowing, you know who is going to pay and it won't be them. More taxes, both direct and indirect, keep the slaves in line.

Breathing emits carbon dioxide. The rallying cry for population reduction of those who can't pay may go from 'useless eaters' to 'useless breathers.'

Pentagon Conspiracy

More & More Egregious Fraud


Pentagon Conspiracy: More & More Egregious Fraud  (Feb 25, 2009) So-called "National Defense,"aka Pentagon Fraud, is an ongoing scam in America that continues unabated. In fact, this egregious "privatized" Pentagon fraud has even been increased under the Obama Regime.

"The Bush administration's Fiscal Year 2009 budget for the Department of Defense came in at $513 billion. That does not include the ongoing costs of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. It's by far the largest number in the world. And it represents a huge increase in the baseline budget from where it was in FY2001," reports Matthew Yglesias.

That's what happens when Unindicted War Criminals rule America.

"The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) was preparing to tell the Pentagon to spend $527 billion -- a $14 billion increase -- in FY2010. But the Pentagon wanted to spend $584 billion. So they had this effort underway to portray Obama's $14 billion hike as a $57 billion cut," Yglesias continues.

Got that? Budget increases are being billed as budget "cuts," according to the lying Bureaucratic Lackeys of the Pentagon esconced in the OMB.

Congressional Quarterly's Josh Rogin reports that OMB and the Pentagon have agreed to an even greater increase -- $537 billion for the coming fiscal year.

"The new topline figure is $10 billion greater than guidance President Obama's administration gave to the Pentagon only last month. The increase reflects the effort to incorporate some items previously found in supplemental war funding budgets, the sources said, but does not cover the cost of ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, which will still require additional funding above the base request next fiscal year."

Even though the Pentagon has lost the War on Iraq and the War on Afghanistan, this insatiable satanic beast wants more...

And guess who's paying for killing all those brown people overseas?

Pentagon moves to impose secrecy on budget talks

Pentagon moves to impose secrecy on budget talks AFP/File – US Defence Secretary Robert Gates speaks during a press conference in Kracow, February 20, 2009.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Senior Pentagon officials have had to promise they will keep the details of the US military budget secret as the Defense Department prepares to make tough cuts on weapons programs, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

In an unprecedented move, Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked top military officers and civilian officials to sign non-disclosure forms in which they agree not to reveal deliberations about the politically charged budget.

"Everybody who's participating in this process -- these are the highest ranking people in this department ... were asked to sign an agreement in which they would agree not to speak to any of the matters that they are working on as part of this budget process," press secretary Geoff Morrell told a news conference.

"This is highly sensitive stuff involving programs costing tens of billions of dollars, employing hundreds of thousands of people and -- and go to the heart of national security," he said.

Members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were among those required to sign, and Gates himself signed the form, Morrell said.

"This is to reinforce the message that indeed this is classified material. These are highly secret discussions. And we should remember that, be mindful of it, and honor it," Morrell said.

News of the bid to impose secrecy came as President Barack Obama prepares to present his budget request to Congress on Thursday.

Gates has warned he plans to take a hard look at expensive weapons programs, which enjoy the backing of powerful defense firms and lawmakers in Congress.

The non-disclosure forms may carry less legal weight than the strict security clearances already governing top officials and officers. But the defense secretary's step may have been designed more as a symbolic message to curb leaks about sensitive budget negotiations, analysts said.

Gates is "trying to invoke personal loyalty," said Michael O'Hanlon at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank.

"Gates is trying to send the message that if you do that (leak) you're actually hurting me and I'll take it as a personal affront and I'm personally asking you not to do it," O'Hanlon told AFP.

The Media War on You Moth to the Flame - art by relaxeder

Those who manipulate the unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of
human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. In almost every act of our lives whether in the sphere of politics or business in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda (1928)

Commitment to exposing the lies of the media 'who pull the wires that control the public mind'
is one undertaken by the few.

Detain This is one of them.

AP's Latest Zionist Lies about Iran

In the span of a few hours on February 25th, The Associated Press released two versions of the same news report: “Iran tests its first nuclear power plant” in the morning, and “Iranians in test run of first nuclear power plant” in the early afternoon. Both reports carried the byline “Nasser Karimi” and both carried this editor’s note: “Associated Press Writer Matti Friedman in Jerusalem, George Jahn in Vienna contributed to this report.” In other words, the afternoon report was a revised version — or rather, what AP refers to as a “corrective” — of the morning report.

And what were the errors in the first release that had to be corrected in the second? Well, that is not clear because, in apparent violation of their own journalistic principles, the AP editor didn’t thus specify in the editor’s note. But while we may never be able to prove exactly what the editor had in mind when releasing the “corrective” report, any shrewd reader, upon reading the reports concurrently, will conclude that what compelled the editor to rewrite the original was not necessarily a technical error but a political one.

Take for example this excerpt, which is found in the penultimate paragraph of the morning release yet omitted from the afternoon version:

Russia says there is no evidence that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons . . .

What on earth drove the AP editor to strike that paragraph from the “corrective” report? (If it was a factual error, it would show up in the editor’s note.) We might never know for sure, but, in the very least, AP is egregiously breaking its own journalistic “values and principles.” At worst, AP is lying for the U.S. and Israeli governments. read more

wagelaborer takes a look at the media.

In George Orwell's book, 1984, Winston Smith's job at the Ministry of Truth was to rewrite history. Part of the job was to literally send the old documents down the memory hole to be incinerated. Then he wrote the new history as ordered by the ruling class. No traces of the old history were allowed to be saved.

As it turned out, none of that was necessary. By the time of the actual 1984, Ronald Reagan was President. The United State was supporting "freedom fighters" in Central America and in Afghanistan, sending billions to fund the muhajadeen, and setting up schools in Pakistan, where children were trained with US suppplied textbooks in the ways of jihad. We were officially supporting Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war, sending him arms, intelligence, and biological and chemical weapons. But we also sold arms in secret to Iran, although they were officially our enemy.

All of this is now down the memory hole, but only figuratively. Today the documentation isn't burned, you can still find it, but it doesn't matter. The Ministry of Truth, now called the corporate media, simply presents the new truth in an authoritative manner and the proles accept it without question. We are now told that everyone loved Ronald Reagan, and the 2008 election was about who got to be the new Reagan. The Afghan freedom fighters turned into terrorists, but the Central American ones remained heroes, all without historical comment. The madrasses are now bad. We have always been at war with Iran and Iraq. more

Elements of Propaganda

Propaganda can serve to rally people behind a cause, but often at the cost of exaggerating, misrepresenting, or even lying about the issues in order to gain that support.

While the issue of propaganda often is discussed in the context of militarism, war and war-mongering, it is around us in all aspects of life.

As the various examples below will show, common tactics in propaganda often used by either side include:

  • Using selective stories that come over as wide-covering and objective.
  • Partial facts, or historical context
  • Reinforcing reasons and motivations to act due to threats on the security of the individual.
  • Narrow sources of “experts” to provide insights in to the situation. (For example, the mainstream media typically interview retired military personnel for many conflict-related issues, or treat official government sources as fact, rather than just one perspective that needs to be verified and researched).
  • Demonizing the “enemy” who does not fit the picture of what is “right”.
  • Using a narrow range of discourse, whereby judgments are often made while the boundary of discourse itself, or the framework within which the opinions are formed, are often not discussed. The narrow focus then helps to serve the interests of the propagandists. more

It is virtually impossible to escape the daily propaganda. You can turn off the TV, throw away the newspapers and unplug the internet connection but the lies are still there and affecting our lives.

Speaking out against the media who refuses to be a voice of the people and profits from being the paid social engineer of the criminal state is our duty as citizens.

Believing in and supporting the media whores of lies is a dangerous situation.

Doing so risks losing the war for your mind, body and soul.

The Iraq War is Dead - Long Live the Iraq War
Will someone please explain to this Afghani man and child how occupation and death equates to freedom? Perhaps an Iraqi could do this as they know that the US will never leave their country and dammit it's for their own protection.

Chris Floyd is one who doesn't believe that we will ever end our occupation of Iraq.

It would be superfluous in us to point out that a plan to "end" a war which includes the continued garrisoning of up to 50,000 troops in a hostile land is, in reality, a continuation of that war, not its cessation. To produce such a plan and claim that it "ends" a war is the precise equivalent of, say, relieving one's bladder on the back of one's neighbor and telling him that the liquid is actually life-giving rain.

But this is exactly what we are going to get from the Obama Administation in Iraq. Word has now come from on high – that is, from "senior administration officials" using "respectable newspapers" as wholly uncritical conduits for government spin – that President Obama has reached a grand compromise with his generals (or rather, the generals and Pentagon poobahs he has inherited -- and eagerly retained -- from George W. Bush) on a plan to withdraw some American troops from the country that the United States destroyed in an unprovoked war of aggression. Obama had wanted a 16-month timetable for the partial withdrawal; his potential campaign rival in 2012, General David Petraeus, wanted 23 months; so, with Solomonic wisdom, they have now split the difference, and will withdraw a portion of the American troops in 19 months instead.

But the plan clearly envisions a substantial and essentially permanent American military presence in Iraq, dominating the politics and policy of this key oil nation – which was of course one of the chief war aims of the military aggressors in the Bush Administration all along. By implementing his war continuation plan,
Obama will complete the work of Bush and his militarist clique. read more

In a head
line, Troops to Leave Iraq in 18 months, officials say, the AP misleads us.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is expected to order all U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by August of next year, administration officials said, closing the door on a war that has led to the deaths of at least 4,250 members of the U.S. military.

"Combat troops" leaving but further down in the article...

The emerging plan now leaves Obama two months off his campaign pledge, and with between 30,000 and 50,000 troops still in Iraq to advise and train Iraqi security forces and to protect U.S. interests.

The residual force would include intelligence and surveillance specialists and their equipment, including unmanned aircraft, according to two administration officials and a Pentagon official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not been made public.

The complete withdrawal of American forces will take place by December 2011, the period by which the U.S. agreed with Iraq to remove all troops. more

I won't hold my breath until all the troops come home. I have a feeling it will be closer to McCain's statement during his designated losing campaign to Obama that "100 years in Iraq would be fine with me."

The British don't want to release the information of talks before the invasion of Iraq. The lies need to be kept buried so any debate on troop withdrawal and ending the occupation will be stifled.

LONDON (AP) - Britain's justice secretary overturned an order on Tuesday that would have forced the government to make public the formal minutes of two contentious Cabinet discussions held before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

The minutes detail a Cabinet's consideration of advice it was receiving on the legality of the Iraq war, and the order by Justice Secretary Jack Straw to keep them private set back a long-standing effort to seek insight into one of the most contentious periods in recent British history.

In the case of the formal minutes from the Cabinet meetings on March 13 and 17, 2003, Britain's Information Tribunal said in its decision last month that "maintaining the confidentiality of the formal minutes of two Cabinet meetings at which ministers decided to commit forces to military action in Iraq did not ... outweigh the public interest in disclosure."

Israel does not want us to leave Iraq so that's that. Keeping the Middle East divided, weakened and occupied gives Israel a sense of security as they plan their next genocide.

Greg Bacon doesn't think Israel is our friend.....

Existential threats? That means a threat doesn't have to actually exist, but if Israel thinks it does, then it's "Bombs Away."

Like the "threats" Israel saw in those Gaza gardens and planted fields which Israel either bombed or destroyed with bulldozers. And the Gazan health care clinics and hospitals the IDF bombed? Or those Gazan ambulances strafed by IDF jets?

If a family member became as crazy and violent as Israel is, the other family members would have the crazed one committed.

Israel is that crazy, out of control family member, but instead of having access to a 12 gauge shotgun, it has 300 nuclear weapons on hand and the ability to deliver them anywhere in the world.

Who will confront this maniac? more

Between the war profiteers and Israel, it may be that our Iraq adventure/occupation is still in the early stages. Only 95 or so years to go.

What did he say?

Somehow I just didn't hear anything new or encouraging in Obama's latest speech given to Congress last night.

Maybe it was the distracting jumping up and down of the freaks behind him. Pelosi was especially cartoonish with her clapping and that Joker/Joan Rivers like distorted smile.

The whole ceremony was surreal. It was more like a king and his court, all worshiping themselves for being the benevolent saviors of the common folk who are too dumb to understand what is needed for their own good.

I even lost a bet with my wife. I was sure Obama would once again evoke the ghost of bin Laden to scare us into getting behind his 'surges' in Afganistan and Pakistan. He did mention the ever elusive al qaeda but the old tactic of raising the dead man for support of our killing innocents was conspicuous by its absence.

Patrick Martin fought through the distractions to give us an analysis of Obama's words if you are interested - Obama pledges bigger Wall Street bailout.

The whole royalty aspect of the American political elite gathering together to persuade the public that their crimes are not really crimes but actions of a higher calling reminded me of some words from In the Court of the Crimson King......

On soft gray mornings widows cry
The wise men share a joke;
I run to grasp divining signs
To satisfy the hoax.
The yellow jester does not play
But gentle pulls the strings
And smiles as the puppets dance
In the court of the crimson king.

Set the Spin Cycle to "Race Agitate"

Firefighter by day, arsonist by night: Attorney General Eric Holder,a man I liked a lot more three and a half decades ago when he played the heroic Dr. Bob Matthias on Space:1999 (below, right), appears determined to ignite racial conflicts the Regime can triumphantly extinguish -- along with what remains of our liberty.

Sometimes a paradox will yield its meaning to someone willing to invest just a little thought.

Take, for instance, the observation that a vacuum cleaner that sucks, doesn't.

Or consider the fact that it is impossible for someone to be the "most mediocre" in a given field, since that person in would then excel at mediocrity.

The paradox propounded by Attorney General Eric Holder last week is hardly as benign as either of those examined above.

Speaking in commemoration of Black History Month, Mr. Holder -- the first black U.S. Attorney General, appointed to that position by the first black U.S. President -- insisted that the absence of rancorous racial debate is a symptom of deeply entrenched racial problems in American society.

No, he's not Eric Holder: Unlike the hack lawyer serving as A.G., the British actor Anton Phillips has always made an honest living.

At least, that's my take-away from the following statement:

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. Though race related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.... [I]f we are to make progress in this area we must feel comfortable enough with one another, and tolerant enough of each other, to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us."

For a generation, Americans have aspired to assess individuals on the basis of character and achievement rather than skin color. Now the most powerful lawyer in the world has described the effort to build a color-blind society as a reflection of some embedded national character flaw.

Taken by themselves, Holder's words were hardly the stuff of militancy. But the gratuitous insult (are we really a "nation of cowards" because we have better things to do than rummage around in search of racial resentments?) and the speaker's posture of incurable grievance leave me with a weary suspicion that the Obama administration, rather than putting Jesse Jackson-style race-hustling out of business, is prepared to escalate it by several orders of magnitude.

What Holder said may ultimately be less important than the audience to whom he said it: He was addressing a gathering of tax-supported legal predators, the kind of people whose professional prospects -- beginning with basic job security -- would brighten considerably were the United States to undergo a prolonged spasm of racial conflict.

Think of the careers that could be made in "hate crime" prosecution; the federal lawsuits that could be launched against public institutions deemed to be insufficiently (or improperly) race-conscious; the opportunities to expand the power and reach of Leviathan, if race riots were once again ignited in major cities.

And think as well of the abundant opportunities for racial arsonists to foment conflict as the economy continues its relentless descent, leaving local economies dessicated and local communities brittle with incurable frustrations.
Over the next several months, a cascading wave of retail bankruptcies will leave shopping malls darkened and deserted. The proliferation of what Gerald Celente calls "Ghost Malls" will add to the expanding blight of empty neighborhoods, creating a suitable backdrop for apocalyptic urban conflicts.

Symbol of our times: Time magazine's award-winning photo of a Sheriff, his gun drawn, inspecting a foreclosed home.

Wherever a spark of racial conflict is struck, we can expect to find the Feds -- as well as their allies and deniable assets -- spreading

If the resulting conflagration is big enough, our rulers -- helpful people that they are -- will be more than willing to extinguish it, albeit by sucking the oxygen of individual liberty out of our society completely.

It would obviously be to the advantage of our rulers for Americans to think of ourselves as members of ethic collectives that
they define for their purposes. The most obvious of those purposes would be simply to keep us divided and inconsolably hostile toward each other. This process, as Holder probably understands, begins with supplying a racial subtext for discussion of practically every public issue of consequence.

As the economic decline accelerates, the temptation to racialize our grievances will become more seductive to an ever-greater number of people. The good news, ironically, is that the unfolding economic crisis is breaking up the media monolith that the Regime has relied on to indoctrinate the masses.

The "news" networks are playing to an ever-smaller and increasingly decrepit audience; the weekly news magazines are either disappearing or radically altering their format; newspaper chains are withering, link by link. The conventional media will probably become more localized, the "alternate" media more influential.

At some point, the Obama Regime may actually propose the nationalization of the news industry, which would actually make the samizdat media that much more effective and credible. (In the old Soviet Union, the common wisdom was that there was no "truth" in Pravda, and no reliable "news" in Izvestia.)

Hopefully, through the proliferation of independent media and because of the transparent cynicism of the Obama Regime in promoting ethnic antagonisms (at present, they're merely warming up), it will be possible to immunize a healthy segment of the population against the
effort to foment a full-blown race war.

We're not there yet, but stick around: A citizen of Zimbabwe displays a 100 million dollar note.

One useful preventative treatment would be to encourage Americans of all backgrounds to ask themselves why they should continue to be plundered on behalf of a socialist plutocracy. Another would be to emphasize shared concerns over the ever-growing menace of the State's armed enforcers -- a problem that certainly transcends arbitrary and increasingly useless ethnic divisions.

Roughly a decade ago, Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of the black advocacy group BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny), commented to me that the white American population was just beginning to experience many of the social pathologies cultivated by the welfare state that had long afflicted black Americans. Those afflictions include multi-generational illegitimacy, multi-generational dependency, and the effective disappearance of fathers in the home and stable households.

In a similar fashion, the increasing militarization of law enforcement and the ever-growing trend of unpunished abusive police behavior have introduced Americans of all backgrounds to conditions long familiar to some black inner-city Americans. This provides another tragic but useful source of shared concerns.

The unalloyed truth is that our rulers intend to make helots out of all of us, irrespective of race, creed, or color, and to that end they are eager to exploit the potential for conflict created by those divisions.

Perhaps the best we can hope for would be that the Regime will press too hard, too soon, causing the "union" to disintegrate with relatively little violence. Since there is, quite literally, not enough wealth in the entire world to service the Regime's financial obligations, the bleak reality is that the survival of the entity calling itself the United States of America simply cannot survive in its current form.

Liberty would fare much better if the American soyuz were to disintegrate into several smaller polities, instead of remaining monolithic up until its terminal implosion. If the Obamunists employ the same heavy-handedness in race agitation that they've displayed in wealth redistribution, the crack-up may come much sooner -- and be much uglier -- than any of us expect.
