Obama's Motto: Be Evil

The war on terrorism was not ill-conceived, it was criminally conceived. Attacking Iraq was not an error, it was a crime against humanity. President Obama escalated the war in Afghanistan not because he was pressured by his military advisers, but because he, like Bush, is without a conscience and doesn't respect human life.

Don't be fooled by Obama's smile or Bush's cowboy talk, they are both evil criminals who don't mind being the face of an evil empire that has killed millions of innocent people since the end of World War II. Politicians like Obama and Bush believe in power for power's sake. Freedom, peace, justice, and truth don't enter their calculations.

The forces of power captured Obama when he was young; read Obama's own writing about how he was led by his Indonesian stepfather Lolo onto power's trail. "Better to be strong,” Lolo told a young Obama. Obama couldn't resist the seductive pull of power because he didn't have the spiritual strength that leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Abraham Lincoln all had.

If given the ring of power, or coming across it on power's trail, Obama would put it on his finger in a matter of seconds. He wouldn't even blink.

And he didn't. As Sméagol turned into Gollum, Obama turned into a different man after he first experienced power's demonic presence. He was too weak, and you have to be strong to resist the power of the modern presidency. The tragedy is that Obama didn't journey across Frodo's trail, but was instead seduced into going down Gollum's trail. He is now the face of Washington's Evil Kingdom. And the elitist forces behind him couldn't be happier because the people believe him to be one of their own, when in reality, he is one of them.

Obama walked down power's trail and never looked back. It is the same trail that all power-hungry, conscience-less men take. Men like Stalin, Hitler, Pinochet, Franco, and Saddam all took the same trail, and it took them to the same destination: evil's paradise, where Obama is now enjoying himself. Such men don't want to change the system, but work within it, and uphold it, even if the system is purely evil and criminal. They view power and corruption as natural to this world, not something to be opposed, and their cold personalities are naturally suited to an evil government's brutality and inhumanity.

Milovan Đilas, author of "Conversations with Stalin," witnessed Stalin's coldness and arrogance up close. Đilas was a Communist leader from Yugoslavia who became a leading political dissident of the Soviet Union. In his book he describes Stalin's lack of conscience and empathy in amazing detail, here is a short passage:
"An ungainly dwarf of a man passed through gilded and marbled imperial halls, and a path opened before him, radiant, admiring glances followed him, while ears of courtiers strained to catch his every word. And he, sure of himself and his works, obviously paid no attention to all this. His country was in ruins, hungry, exhausted. But his armies and marshals, heavy with fat and medals and drunk with vodka and victory, had already trampled half of Europe under foot, and he was convinced they would trample over the other half in the next round. He knew that he was one of the most cruelest personalities in human history. But this did not worry him one bit, for he was convinced that he was executing the judgment of history. His conscience was troubled by nothing, despite the millions who had been destroyed in his name, and by his order, despite the thousands of his closest collaborators whom he had murdered as traitors because they doubted that he was leading the country and people into happiness, equality, and liberty. The struggle had been risky, long, and all the more underhanded because the opponents were few in number and weak. But he succeeded and success is the only criterion of truth! For what is conscience? Does it even exist? It had no place in his philosophy, much less in his actions." (Đilas, Conversations With Stalin, p. 105-106).
The political leadership in Washington is equally cruel, evil, and deceptive as the leadership in the former Soviet Union. They have a corrupt and secret agenda, and they are determined to succeed, regardless of the means used. Even killing members of the U.S. population in acts of terrorism is fine with them. The September 11, 2001 attacks attest to their brutality and criminality.

But they won't succeed. Their agenda of domination over the Middle East and over America will fail, and they will be hanged as rotten traitors and war criminals. The WikiLeaks releases have not even scratched the surface of the U.S. government's epic deception and criminality. The truth that Washington's state terrorists were behind 9/11 is far too explosive to be hidden from the public eye. Reality is too powerful to be manipulated by tyrants forever. "Stalin's dethronement," wrote Đilas, "proves that the truth will out even if only after those who fought for it have perished. The human conscience is implacable and indestructible."

Fabricating Terror

Fabricating Terror

November 30, 2010

Why does the FBI orchestrate fake terror plots?

The latest one snared Osman Mohamud, a Somali-American teenager in Portland, Oregon. The Associated Press report by William Mall and Nedra Pickler (11-27-10) is headlined in Yahoo News: "Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Oregon."

This is a misleading headline as the report makes it clear that it was a plot orchestrated by federal agents. Two sentences into the news report we have this: "The bomb was an elaborate fake supplied by the [FBI] agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said."

The teenager was supplied with a fake bomb and a fake detonator.

Three sentences later, the reporters contradict the quoted authorities with a quote from Arthur Balizan, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon: "The threat was very real."

The reporters then contradict Balizan: "White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Saturday that president Barack Obama was aware of the FBI operation before Friday's arrest. Shapiro said Obama was assured that the FBI was in full control of the operation and that the public was not in danger."

Raise A Glass to Wikileaks

Published: November 29, 2010

The well paid securitocracy have been out in force in the media, attacking wikileaks and repeating their well worn mantras.

These leaks will claim innocent lives, and will damage national security. They will encourage Islamic terrorism. Government secrecy is essential to keep us all safe. In fact, this action by Wikileaks is so cataclysmic, I shall be astonished if we are not all killed in our beds tonight.

Except that we heard exactly the same things months ago when Wikileaks released the Iraq war documents and then the Afghan war documents, and nobody has been able to point to a concrete example of any of these bloodurdling consequences.

The truth doesn't have to be leaked from the inside, it is in plain sight

[insert shock over the details from the state department cables] [insert outrage at U.S. government] [insert praise for WikiLeaks] [insert criticism of the New York Times and the US media for their lackluster analysis of the leaked cables and their complicity in U.S. war crimes] [insert flattering comments directed to European publications for clear, unrestrained analysis of the cables] [insert a quote by famous whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg about why government transparency is so important in a democracy] [insert insults at neocons and stupid congressmen for demanding Assange's head]

Okay, in all seriousness, I'm glad that the WikiLeaks data dump has re-energized public debate about the societal benefits and ills that spring from government secrecy. I think it's safe to say that the forces behind the national security state who contest the public's right to know have lost the battle. The American people want a free and open society, they desire to know the truth about the full extent of their government's crimes, and their political leaders can't do anything to mitigate that very deep desire.

But we don't need WikiLeaks to understand the full truth about U.S. criminality in the war on terror. Facts that reveal U.S. illegal actions worldwide since 2001 have been available to the public and the press. Why do we need public confirmations from criminals that their actions are criminal? Do we really need government leaks to feel confident about our personal assessments of government criminality? All the truth that we need is in front of our eyes, in plain sight. They are obvious truths. For example, there is bulletproof evidence that implicates high-level U.S. government officials in the September 11, 2001 attacks. This evidence has been in the public domain for several years, and a lot if it emerged quickly after the attacks happened. People are free to talk about it, but it is too scary to talk about such facts. Members of the press can shed light on the evidence, but they choose not to because they think it belongs in the realm of "conspiracy theories."

Those that continually dismiss scientific evidence that contradicts the official 9/11 story and irrationally insist that the U.S. government had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks are making a huge mistake. The U.S. government is more than capable of attacking its own citizens and lying to the world about it since it was hijacked upon the assassination of John F. Kennedy by the evil powers behind the CIA-Military-National Security State. They are cold-blooded murderers who only care about power and control. Read Jim Fetzer's "JFK: What We Know Now" to learn more details of the Kennedy murder. Also, watch William Pepper's lecture about his 2003 book "An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King." Pepper was the attorney who represented the King family in court back in late 1999. In front of a Memphis jury he successfully proved the case that King's death was the result of a government conspiracy; that the official version was untrue. Pepper's book has been censored in the mainstream media, along with the 1999 trial, which was one of the most important trials in American history.

The Guardian, the New York Times, and Der Spiegel are free to review Pepper's book, and report the findings of the 1999 trial eleven years later. They can put behind their shameful past. Their scandalous censorship about the government assassinations of Kennedy and King can end today if they actually cared about the truth, government transparency, and accountability. But, sadly, they don't. Their satisfied with the official story because it is easy to digest, and it doesn't bring up any disturbing questions about who really controls the American government.

But I'm not complaining, or mad. We don't need the New York Times or WikiLeaks to tell us that the U.S. empire is controlled by war criminals and traitors who murdered two of the greatest American leaders, and killed innocent people on 9/11. It is an open secret. Even former President Bush couldn't keep his inner hostility towards the American people a secret. In one of his famous Bushisms he said: "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." That was a slip, no doubt, but don't be fooled, deep down, he meant it.

A sociopathic empire, which is what America is today, has to be led by equally sociopathic personalities like Bush. Of course, most of the bottom-level functionaries are clueless and sincere individuals who are ignorant of the fact that 9/11 was done by America's shadow state. Maybe this is true for top level cabinet members too. But that doesn't take away from the fact that the Empire is totally criminal and immoral.

If only the global press treated the revelations discovered by William Pepper, The International Center for 9/11 Studies, and Architects Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in the same way as it treated the revelations discovered by WikiLeaks. It's probably the case that journalists believe there is more drama and intrigue surrounding a massive and quick leak of secret government information than in the slow but constant drainage of truth that's been leaking since 9/11/01.

What's disheartening is the idea that without off-the-record statements by officials in Washington that point to crimes and cover-ups we would be in the dark when that is far from the truth. Those who look with open eyes know full well that Washington is ran by evil crooks. Only those who worship government authority can't see the obvious lies and crimes. And something can be done. The American people are not powerless, and they don't need WikiLeaks to hold their criminal government accountable. Besides, there is nothing seriously damaging to the U.S. that we've learned from the WikiLeaks cables release. The reputation of the U.S. government was already very poor, and these revelations are hardly earth-shattering. That the American government is spying on U.N. officials is less damaging to American democracy than the fact that the Israeli government is spying on U.S. officials, or the fact that the American government is spying on U.S. citizens, which we've known about for several years.

America needs a free press more than it needs WikiLeaks. As stated before, many facts that incriminate the U.S. government are already in the public domain, journalists just need to learn to treat them like facts and report them to the public, instead of viewing them through the government-endorsed "conspiracy theories" lens.

William Pepper - An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King

William Pepper, attorney, and author of the 2003 book "An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King," met Martin Luther King Jr. in 1967 when his photo essay "“The Children of Vietnam" that appeared in a January 1967 issue of Ramparts magazine caught the eye of King. The images of victims burned by napalm moved King. Soon after, he approached Pepper. Mark Gabrish Conlan wrote a story about Pepper's meeting with King for Zengers Newsmagazine in February 2003:
"After King saw Pepper’s “The Children of Vietnam” feature in Ramparts, Pepper recalled in an appearance at San Diego’s Current Affairs Bookstore January 28, “He asked to meet with me and see other photos I’d taken. At one point, I was going through the material with him and he just wept. He never could accept it, and became very emotional.” Pepper was with King at Riverside Church in New York City on April 4, 1967 —a year to the day before King’s death —when he delivered the most impassioned speech he ever gave against the Vietnam War."
Since King's death on April 4, 1968, Pepper has worked to rescue the truth about his murder, and honor his legacy. He represented the King family in the civil trial "King Family v. Loyd Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators" that took place in a Memphis courtroom in late 1999. Click here to read the transcript of the trial. Unsurprisingly, the trial received zero coverage from the mainstream media. They were more interested in the lives of O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson than in the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy.

Upon the completion of the 30-day trial, the 12-member jury ruled that Martin Luther King Jr.'s death was the result of a government conspiracy. In other words, the government's version of King's murder was proven in court to be a big lie. After the verdict was heard the King family and Dr. Pepper held a press conference on December 9, 1999 in front of a small gathering of reporters. Read their remarks here. Below are excerpts from their statements.

Coretta Scott King said:
There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court's unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame.
Dexter Scott King said:
I want to make a special thanks to Dr. William Pepper, for really if it were not for his efforts, we would not have known about this. We really would not have gotten involved. We can say that because of the evidence and information obtained in Memphis we believe that this case is over. This is a period in the chapter. We constantly hear reports, which troubles me, that this verdict creates more questions than answers. That is totally false. Anyone who sat in on almost four weeks of testimony, with over seventy witnesses, credible witnesses I might add, from several judges to other very credible witnesses, would know that the truth is here. The question now is, "What will you do with that?" We as a family have done our part. We have carried this mantle for as long as we can carry it. We know what happened. It is on public record. The transcripts will be available; we will make them available on the Web at some point. Any serious researcher who wants to know what happened can find out.
Martin Luther King, III said:
Certainly this has been a very, very long time coming. It essentially says that the truth can in fact come through. It essentially says that if you keep working forward, sometimes for some, even in the twilight, that one day you will reach the conclusion of truth.
Bernice King said:
I guess I will speak, for I have never spoken before regarding the assassination of my father. I was only 3 yearsold. You may remember me as the one in my mother's lap at the funeral. I don't have much to say, because in a real sense I recall words that were spoken when the decision came down from the Supreme Court, regarding the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama. The words spoken were that "God had spoken" from the Supreme Court. I think that God has spoken from 12 independent jurors in Memphis, Tennessee concerning my father's assassination. As somewhat the spiritual leader for this family, because I am an ordained Christian Minister, I have to truly give praise to God for what has happened. We cannot know that God is not a liar. He has spoken his word that I will never leave you, not forsake you, that I will be with you until the end of the earth. So I praise God for what may happen. I thank God for my family. My family praises God for Attorney William Pepper, for his diligent and tireless efforts. There is a word in scripture that says do not be weary in what you are doing, for in due season you will reap if you faint not. Today, we have reaped a harvest, not only for us alone, but also for this nation. And I believe that ultimately God is going to speak even more truth in regards to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., because as we said from the beginning, even though we needed a sense of peace and satisfaction to have the record set straight, the reality is that it is not who killed Martin Luther King, Jr., but as we go forth into the new millennium, as a nation, but what killed Martin Luther King, Jr.
And finally, Pepper said:
Ladies and Gentlemen, this great republic has throughout it's history, has been afraid to face the issues that Martin Luther King tried to confront at the end of his life. Dexter King said quite frankly, that Martin King opposed the war in Vietnam, and sought to bring the poor to Washington to rally for their cause in the halls of Congress. They took up tents in the shadow of the Washington Memorial to remind the lawmakers that forces of power in this land that do exist, and they have rights which were being denied to them.

Because he took on those forces, powerful economic forces that dominated politics in this land, they killed him. He was killed because he could not be stopped. He was killed because they feared that half a million people would rise in revolution in the capitol of this country, and do what Mr. Jefferson said needed to be done every 20 years, to cleanse this land. This land has not been cleansed. This nation has not faced the problems that Martin Luther King, Jr. died trying to face and confront. They still exist today, the forces of evil, the powerful economic forces that dominate the government of this land and make money on war and deprive the poor of what is their right, their birthright. They still abound and they rule.

The jury heard the background of Dr. King's crust. They understood, finally, the reason why he was stained. He was not a civil rights leader when he was stained. He was an international figure of great stature. He had a moral banner that he was waving and it was heard and seen all over the land. Here and in Europe, Southeast Asia. He had that kind of compelling presence. He was a danger and a threat to the status quo. So he was eliminated.

What the jury also heard, from all of those witnesses for almost four weeks, was that he was assassinated because of the removal of the all police protection when he was in the city of Memphis. Even Black Firemen were taken away. His body guard staff were removed. Attack forces were moved back. On and on it went. And then the Mafia involvement with Jowers was put forth in excruciating detail of how this was planned and who was behind this.

The statements from the King family and Pepper are truly sober reading. They are relevant now more than ever, because the truth is needed now more than ever. The Empire that hijacked the Republic when Kennedy was assassinated by the same forces who later killed Dr. King are now destroying Afghanistan, Iraq, and most of all, America. Only the truth can stop the massacres, the crimes, the treason. Only the truth can set America free, and bring peace to the Middle East. Nothing else.

Nobody can rationally deny the verdict that was fully proven in court in the late months of the last millennium. King was murdered by the American Empire and the traitors who rule it. It is a matter of fact. Kennedy was also murdered by the American Empire and the traitors who rule it. And in the new millennium the Empire's appetite for evil and destruction grew to historic levels. Innocent people were murdered on September 11, 2001 by the American Empire and the traitors who rule it. This is an Empire that doesn't care about the American people, and ruins everything in its way. The traitors and state terrorists in Washington hate America, and love power. In their minds America died, and we're all just waiting for history to pronounce her death. They believe nation-states are relics of a bygone era, so they want to impose a new world corporate order on America, and the world.

But we can stop their new world corporate order. It is critical that we expose the past and current crimes by the traitors behind the American Empire. The assassinations of Kennedy and King are still significant all these years later because the powers that they opposed still rule America today. In fact, they grew more powerful and arrogant during the last 40+ years, to the point where U.S. leaders like Bush can admit to torture on television and suffer zero consequences.

It falls upon all of us to challenge these bastards, and send them to hell. If the treasonous Empire is not brought to an end immediately, then America will be completely destroyed, and more innocent people in the Middle East will die because of our cowardice and indifference. We cannot let that happen. We don't have to be strong to bring justice to deaths of Kennedy, King, and the Empire's millions of other victims because the truth is powerful enough. The truth just needs to be told. The war criminals and traitors in Washington D.C. are afraid of nothing but the truth.

"In a time of universal deceit," said Orwell, "telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

The truth about America must be faced if we want the world's future to be peaceful and prosperous. It cannot be pushed back anymore. The consequences of living in the darkness are too damaging. Innocent people are dying every day in Afghanistan and Iraq because deep truths are suppressed and denied in America.

But the truth won't be suppressed forever because the American people are waking up. And when it rises again, the lying murderers in Washington will fall to their graves. It is a matter of time. "A lie cannot live," said Martin Luther King Jr.

With the advent of the 47th observance of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, it may be appropriate to share important findings regarding what we know now about his death that we have not known in the past. Most Americans are not in the position to take on the task that serious research requires. As a former Marine Corps officer and professor of philosophy who taught logic, critical thinking, and scientific reasoning for 35 years, it was my privilege to organize a research group consisting of the best qualified individuals to ever study the case in 1992. Since then, we have published three books reporting what we have discovered--Assassination Science (1998), Murder in Dealey Plaza (2000), and The Great Zapruder Film Hoax (2003)--I have chaired or co-chaired four national meetings on this subject and produced a documentary about it. From these books and other sources I will cite, many available on the net, you can verify what I am saying about our findings.

Human Resources Documentary

Scott Noble, the filmmaker behind the extraordinary and informative documentary "Psywar," has made another revelatory and important documentary, available free to the public, called "Human Resources: Social Engineering in the 20th Century." Watch it here. Read the reviews here.

"Essentially," says Scott, "this film is about the rise of mechanistic philosophy and the exploitation of human beings under modern hierarchical systems." The film includes original interviews with: "Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Rebecca Lemov (“World as Laboratory”), Christopher Simpson (“The Science of Coercion”), George Ritzer (“The McDonaldization of Society”), Morris Berman (“The Reenchantment of the World”), John Taylor Gatto (“Dumbing us Down”), Alfie Kohn (“What does it mean to be well educated?”) and others."

Read David Ker Thomson
's review of the film. He writes: "It answers the significant events of the last century the way a glass answers the implicit questions of a man who peers into its reflective surface—point for point. It corresponds, in short, to reality."

Ending The State of Siege in America

The American people are not free. They are the colonial subjects of the American empire. Over 40 percent of every income tax dollar goes towards the military-industrial-congressional complex, a figure that brings to mind colonial Mexico's tax payments to Spain between 1760 and 1810 to fund its wars. Author Carlos Marichal writes extensively about how Spain's exploitative tax policies in Mexico and other Latin American colonies led to the wars of independence beginning in 1810 in his book "Bankruptcy of Empire: Mexican Silver and the Wars Between Spain, Britain and France, 1760-1810."

Spain's monarchy had its own version of the modern military-industrial-congressional complex. Marichal writes that, "many wealthy individuals and privileged corporations in New Spain openly collaborated with enormous sums extended to the monarchy for its war efforts," (Marichal, pg. 261). Spain's exploitative system exists in Washington today, on a much larger scale. But it won't last. It wasn't sustainable in 1810, and it isn't sustainable in 2010.

The Spanish empire went bankrupted in the beginning of the 19th century, which "was the prelude to the wars of independence," says Marichal, (pg. 265). America's empire may may soon crash and burn too, and what develops on its ruins could be a new world order in which the same criminal corporations and banks continue to profit at the people's expense, or a new found independence for America, and an age of universal and permanent peace for mankind.

America was never meant to be an empire. Thomas Jefferson warned his countrymen against allowing private banking institutions and standing armies a safe haven in America as they are the two evils that most threaten a country's freedom and security; the one by creating unjustified debts, and the other by creating unjustified wars. Jefferson's fear that amoral private bankers would give birth to tyranny if they ever hijacked the people's power to create money was shared by other Founding Fathers.

Their fear was warranted. After winning a few early battles against the international bankers in the 19th century, America was finally conquered by them in 1913 with the illegal passage of the Federal Reserve Act, which gave a group of private banks the gift of money creation that previously was in the possession of Congress. It was a handover of power that Satan would have approved of had he been consulted in Jekyll Island, a state-owned island off the coast of Georgia, three years prior to the establishment of the Fed, in November 1910, when key representatives of private banking houses like J.P. Morgan met secretly to conceive a game plan to implement a private central bank in the United States to rule its monetary policy, and thereby control its national destiny.

Earlier this month Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke commemorated the 100 anniversary of the secret bankers' meeting in Jekyll Island by speaking at a conference held on the island called "A Return to Jekyll Island: The Origins, History, and Future of the Federal Reserve." The conference came on the heel of the Fed's announcement of its disastrous QE2 policy, and was barely mentioned by the mainstream media.

Despite academic ignorance and media censorship pertaining to the anti-democratic origins of the Fed, the American people are rediscovering their nation's 20th century history, and beginning to understand the Fed's destructive role in the global economy.

Through the Fed, the international private banking establishment enslaved the American people, and established a military-CIA machine that is used solely to exploit and enslave other nations that resists the bankers' will. If it wasn't for the monstrosity that is the Fed, the U.S. empire would be less likely to wage war, and maintain its 1,000 military bases around the world. As long as the private bankers are allowed to get away with their historical treachery and crimes, America and other nations will be continually exploited and terrorized at their hands. The world's only defense from this secret establishment is if the American people dismantle the Federal Reserve Bank, and the godless Empire that came along with it.

Chalmers Johnson, who, sadly, passed away on November 20, laid out ten steps that the American people must take to bring an end to the U.S. empire. Johnson warned that in the absence of civic-minded reforms, financial bankruptcy will finally bring America down. He wrote:
"The failure to begin to deal with our bloated military establishment and the profligate use of it in missions for which it is hopelessly inappropriate will, sooner rather than later, condemn the United States to a devastating trio of consequences: imperial overstretch, perpetual war, and insolvency, leading to a likely collapse similar to that of the former Soviet Union."
If the empire is not dismantled then the criminal wars in the Middle East will continue indefinitely, and America will be in a permanent state of siege. The time to resist is now. The time to left the siege is now. There won't be any opportunity for peaceful resistance under direct military rule, especially against an empire that has mastered brutality and murder in Vietnam and Iraq.

Ending the state of siege by the U.S. empire is our generation's responsibility, no matter where we live, because its reach is global. Not only will we create world peace, but we will bring justice to the Empire's many victims, which include American citizens who died on September 11, 2001, Iraqi children who died under the U.S. carpet bombing in Iraq, and President Kennedy who was assassinated for resisting the empire and its war mentality during the Cold War.

World peace, a dream shared by both Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., isn't possible unless large military machines are abolished around the world, and America must set the example towards reaching that global goal. It is uniquely capable of bringing peace to the world because it is a country that was founded on the principles of freedom, and friendship with all nations. America was not created to be used to rule other nations, and wage endless criminals wars, but to be the shining city on the hill.

Under the right leadership America can be the greatest country in the world. I have no doubt about that. The Founding Fathers provided a sound base with the Constitution, the soundest of any nation, and gave subsequent generations the opportunity to improve upon it. America's enemies are not Al-Qaeda, which is a manufactured threat, or Iran, but the private banking cartel, neocons and their allies in Israel, and the Empire. Once they are shrugged off, the chances of world peace becoming a reality grow considerably.

When armed with knowledge about false-flag attacks and the real history of modern wars, nothing can stop mankind's quest for world peace and freedom. Freedom and world peace are attainable goals. Believing that the war on terror cannot be ended is an unacceptable failure of historical imagination. In the 21st century there are no reasons for conflict between nations and religions. Absolutely none. The War on Terrorism is a manufactured and criminal conflict. The official 9/11 story is science fiction. It is false. The War on Terrorism's Big Bang is a Big Lie. To deny this fact is to deny authentic reality, and to live in the empire's reality. In the end, the Washington Consensus will be mentally conquered by the Consensus of Humanity. The Word of the Holy Office of the White House is no match against the Word of Reality. The Heretics of the Apocalypse will be victorious against the Tyrants of the Apocalypse. A free America will reclaim its destiny. The Republic will be restored. And the traitors will be hanged.

But America can't recover its freedoms and destiny without help from members of the U.S. military, and military veterans. Their leadership in the trying times ahead is greatly needed. Damon Vrabel, a former member of the military, and founder of the website, Council on spiritual, psychological & economic renewal, addressed members of the military in his article "Financial Warfare and the Failure of US Military Leadership," telling them:
"Message to my old military colleagues: the US has been blatantly attacked by the most powerful weapon in history – leveraged finance – and rather than defending the country, you’re exacerbating it by killing poor people in deserts for the military-industrial-CIA complex to bring them under the rule of the global banking system and secure their resources. Despite the propaganda, there is no honor in being an assassin for corporate empire. Prove Kissinger wrong, the guy who according to Bob Woodward called you "stupid animals" to be used as pawns. This is what civilian strategists think of you, so stop being suckered by them into killing the weak on the orders of the strong."
Hopefully there are wise and courageous men in the military establishment who are not part of the criminal conspiracy and understand that continual high treason is taking place in Washington which must be stopped. The fraudulent and criminal war on terror, also called the "Long War," must be brought to an end.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil" said Edmund Burke, "is that good men do nothing."

Published: November 23, 2010

Just 47 years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. This marked the turning of the American National Security State apparatus against its own leadership. After having overthrown, assassinated leaders, and orchestrated coups around the world, the moment its growing power was threatened by the civilian leadership in America, the apparatus of empire came home to roost.

That would be Wikileaks and its continuing work:
The Pentagon warned the U.S. Senate and House Armed Services Committees that the website “intends to release several hundred thousand” classified U.S. State Department cables as soon as Nov. 26.

The documents “touch on an enormous range of very sensitive foreign policy issues,” Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Elizabeth King wrote yesterday in an e-mail to the defense panels.

“We anticipate that the release could negatively impact U.S. foreign relations,” she wrote, telling committee staff members that “we will brief you once we have a better understanding of what documents the WikiLeaks publication contains.”
Since the overall purpose of U.S. foreign policy is American global hegemony, to be achieved by deadly sanctions, covert operations, overthrow, criminal wars of aggression, torture and the murder of huge numbers of innocent human beings, we can only fervently pray that this release will "negatively impact U.S. foreign relations."

Judge Andrew Napolitano on 9/11: The U.S. Government Lied

Judge Andrew Napolitano, host of "Freedom Watch" on Fox Business, questioned the official version of the 9/11 attacks in an interview with radio show host Alex Jones on November 23, 2010, saying: "It's hard for me to believe that it came down by itself...I am gratified to see that people across the board are interested. I think twenty years from now, people will look at 9-11 the way we look at the assassination of JFK today. It couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us." The idiots over at Media Matters are attacking Napolitano as another "conspiracy theorist." The Huffington Post also ran with the story, with a headline entitled: "Andrew Napolitano, Fox Business Host, Reveals He Is A 9/11 Truther." The comments in the HuffPost article exceed 1,600 comments, and from what I've read, they are largely pro-9/11 truth.

Napolitano's bold declaration that the U.S. government lied about the 9/11 attacks shows how far the 9/11 truth and accountability movement has come. Less than two years ago it was unsafe for someone in the media to publicly question the government's version of 9/11, but, thanks to the success of Jesse Ventura's truTV show "Conspiracy Theory" and Geraldo Rivera's recent coverage of the "BuildingWhat?" T.V. ad campaign led by family members of 9/11 victims, and the group Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the tide is turning towards the truth.

The Alex Jones show, which is the main platform for the most outspoken critics of the American empire and its many crimes, is where the impending waves of truth are making landfall. The national dialogue in America can no longer be dictated solely by cynical media professionals. All that the mainstream media can do is stand back, and watch its own demise. Its cowardice and complicity is being continually exposed. The public knows that journalists are missing their moral compass, and their truth compass. They are lost, and confused. The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS and other corporate media outlets have just as much credibility with the American people as Pravda had with the Russian people when the Soviet Union was collapsing.

We live in interesting times. It is exciting to be alive. The intense drama that springs from brave truth-telling, and scandalous revelations about government corruption can't be scripted. And this is only the beginning. The show will get better and better. These next few years are going to be dramatic. The World is about to get even more fascinating. America's political awakening is happening side by side with Mankind's political awakening, and both are truly a world-historical event. Public knowledge about how America uses false-flag terrorism to start imperial wars, and how the Western banking system works for the benefit of a small elite is increasing, and will eventually strengthen Western democracies.

The War Criminals in the United States government have nowhere to run. Where are they going to go? Spain? Nope. Latin America? LOL, good luck. London? The Mayor over there is mad at Bush about torture; imagine if he raised the fact that 9/11 was an inside job.

What is the future destination for U.S. war criminals - China? Saudi Arabia? Dubai? This is a serious question. Dallas won't be George Bush's permanent residence. Texas is law and order country. It's death penalty law doesn't sound so bad when considering the fate of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the rest of the devilish traitors who deceived, betrayed, and bankrupted America.

Man Proves TSA Policies Are Unconstitutional

Man Proves TSA Policies Are Unconstitutional
Paul Joseph Watson
November 23, 2010

Blogger Matt Kernan was able to bypass both the naked body scanner and invasive TSA pat down procedures during his return to the United States this past weekend, proving that both measures are completely unconstitutional and creating a precedent for a total shake-up of airport security.

Kernan, who documents the case on his website, was returning from a trip to Europe and was perturbed to see TSA workers making Americans who had already cleared security in their airport of origin go through backscatter x-ray machines and be groped simply to re-enter their own country.

“You see, it is official TSA policy that people (both citizens and non-citizens alike) from international flights are screened as they enter the airport, despite the fact that they have already flown,” writes Kernan. “Even before the new controversial security measures were put in place, I found this practice annoying. But now, as I looked past the 25 people waiting to get into their own country, I saw it: the dreaded Backscatter imaging machine.”

Having seen the plethora of cases in recent weeks of TSA thugs abusing and humiliating women and children, Kernan, who had no connecting flight and time to kill, decided to take a stand.

Tom Engelhardt talks about Chalmers Johnson's legacy with Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio

Listen to the discussion here.

Reality Demands Your Attention, Not The Government or The Media

To the person who still can't accept that 9/11 was an inside job:

It is a fact that dark agents within the highest levels of the U.S. government, with assistance from the Israeli government, planned and executed the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. which were falsely blamed on Muslim extremists, and immediately spawned a manufactured global war against global terrorism. You can't argue against this fact. Reality is more stubborn than you. Reality will have the last word in this lost world, not the government, not the television, and not you.

Grow up. Whether or not you admit it doesn't change the fact that the U.S. government is a terrorist state. World events are not driven by your opinion or public opinion, they are driven by power, and since you're opinion can be shaped, changed, and twisted, you don't have any power. You are a piece of shit in the state terrorist's eyes. And on some days I agree with them, because people who can't make up their own opinion about reality, who are easily manipulated by lies and half-truths in the media, who can't tell apart liars from truth-tellers, good from evil, ought to be treated like dirt. If you want to treat Obama, Bush, Harper, Blair, and Cameron like your daddy, then you deserve to be spanked every which way by your government. You don't deserve any better.

Once you start treating your opinion as uniquely yours, as something sacred and holy, once you start to read and research false-flag terrorism and government-sponsored terror on your own, you won't be persuaded by what government officials say, or what's presented in the media by propagandists and disinformation artists, you will gain power, and you might even be able to make a difference in the direction of your country, and of history. Until that day comes, when you can compare real facts with government lies and tell apart the good guys from the bad guys, you will be a conformist, domesticated, dumbed-down slave who will be abused, and manipulated. If that is the fate that you want for yourself, if you crave a state of permanent childhood, then I don't why I or anyone should stop you. If you want to behave and think like a slave, then the state terrorists are justified in treating you like a slave. That's just natural.

But you were not meant to be a slave. You are divine, like all human beings. You can change your mind, you can discover what the rest of us have discovered through research and reflection - that 9/11 was done by the United States and Israel - or you can keep belittling truth-tellers, calling us "nuts" and "kooks." The choice is yours to make. After all, you are still free to change your mind. You are not in chains. You can think for yourself. You can watch Loose Change. You can read David Ray Griffin. You can check out the website Architects And Engineers For 9/11 Truth. You are ultimately responsible to know the facts, not the media. They report, you decide, remember? And if they don't report, then you report, and you decide. I'm sure you can do both since you are on the internet. This is not the 1960s. The internet allows you to investigate subjects like 9/11 for yourself. Will you waste this resource? If you do waste it, then you deserve to be betrayed, and enslaved. If you don't waste it, if you keep an open mind and research 9/11, you will see and understand the truth like the rest of us. We are not kooks. And you are not idiots. We're complex human beings living in a media-saturated world. But the media is not all-powerful. It can't dictate reality. And neither can the government. Reality stands by itself, and it demands your attention.

The Murderous U.S. Government Explained

The Murderous U.S. Government Explained
By Arthur Silber
November 19, 2010

There is one aspect of this Washington Post article that I fear will be appreciated by very few people. Before I get to that, let's set out the basic facts:
The U.S. military is sending a contingent of heavily armored battle tanks to Afghanistan for the first time in the nine-year war, defense officials said, a shift that signals a further escalation in the aggressive tactics that have been employed by American forces this fall to attack the Taliban.

The deployment of a company of M1 Abrams tanks, which will be fielded by the Marines in the country's southwest, will allow ground forces to target insurgents from a greater distance - and with more of a lethal punch - than is possible from any other U.S. military vehicle. The 68-ton tanks are propelled by a jet engine and equipped with a 120mm main gun that can destroy a house more than a mile away.

Despite an overall counterinsurgency strategy that emphasizes the use of troops to protect Afghan civilians from insurgents, statistics released by the NATO military command in Kabul and interviews with several senior commanders indicate that U.S. troop operations over the past two months have been more intense and have had a harder edge than at any point since the initial 2001 drive to oust the Taliban government.
I give Rajiv Chandrasekaran, the author of this article, tremendous credit for a masterful job of reporting. That is not intended to be in the least sarcastic; I genuinely mean it. You can already see how skillfully he conveys the monstrousness of the U.S. government's actions simply by reporting the facts and, of critical importance, describing them accurately.

Even in these opening paragraphs, note the descriptive phrases that economically convey the extraordinary bloodthirstiness of what the U.S. is doing: "more of a lethal punch," "destroy a house more than a mile away" (marvel at the wonder of it!), "have had a harder edge." The horrifying, sickening irony of the beginning of the third paragraph hits the attentive reader very hard: it's all very well to have an "overall counterinsurgency strategy" designed "to protect Afghan civilians from insurgents" -- but who is going to protect them from the U.S.?

9/11 Truth, And The Sad State of Western Journalism

"No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices." - Edward R. Murrow

"To state the facts frankly is not to despair the future nor indict the past." - John F. Kennedy

From the moment that 9/11 happened a historical narrative that was scripted beforehand to benefit the agents of power in the United States, Israel, and the Western World was drilled into the public consciousness by the Western mainstream media. Nine years later, anybody who goes against the official narrative about the September 11 events is called a "reality-challenged" lunatic/nutcase/kook.

All public debate about 9/11 is shut off. To servile minds, history is what the government says it is on any given day. Reality is not what you see with your own eyes, or what you can verify with your own mind, but what you are told it is by people in power. To step out of line, and contradict authority is a form of mental illness. You are treated worse than a leper. You might as well die, and go away, because your "conspiracy theories" are making the rest of society feel uncomfortable, and insecure.

The Russian novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn criticized the Western press, and Western culture in general, more than thirty years ago in an address titled "A World Split Apart" he gave at Harvard University. "Without any censorship," he said "in the West fashionable trends of thought and ideas are carefully separated from those which are not fashionable; nothing is forbidden, but what is not fashionable will hardly ever find its way into periodicals or books or be heard in colleges. Legally your researchers are free, but they are conditioned by the fashion of the day." Solzhenitsyn pinpointed the problem with Western journalism and Western universities; herd mentality. The West has more freedom than anywhere else, but not enough people who are willing to practice it. There are too few Hunter S. Thompsons in the press, and too many cowards. There is nothing wrong with herd mentality since it is part of our nature as humans, but it must be balanced with the free-thinking and free-spirited part of us, otherwise, our countries will be further enslaved by the state terrorists who control our governments. Solzhenitsyn:
"There is no open violence such as in the East; however, a selection dictated by fashion and the need to match mass standards frequently prevent independent-minded people giving their contribution to public life. There is a dangerous tendency to flock together and shut off successful development. I have received letters in America from highly intelligent persons, maybe a teacher in a faraway small college who could do much for the renewal and salvation of his country, but his country cannot hear him because the media are not interested in him. This gives birth to strong mass prejudices, to blindness, which is most dangerous in our dynamic era."
Solzhenitsyn died on August 3, 2008. I wish I knew what he thought about the September 11 attacks. The warning he gave in 1978 about the media's ability to give birth to mass prejudices couldn't have been more spot on. The biggest reason why people still believe in the official story of 9/11 is because of the conformist media. It has a death grip on the American mind.

Voices that persist in their questioning of the official narrative are totally ignored and/or silenced by not just the mainstream media, but also by liberals and progressives who thump their chest against evil "capitalists," as if they are the only and truest guardians of the working man. Their rejection of truth-tellers as "kooks" is disgusting. That is why modern day liberals/progressives and news outlets like The Nation and National Public Radio have no credibility whatsoever with the thinking public. They act just as high and mighty as the conservatives they loathe so much, and both are equally ignorant of the true nature of the crimes that have been committed in front of all our eyes by the evil traitors who captured Washington D.C.

But times change. Ignoring the 9/11 truth and accountability campaign as a lunatic and fringe movement is impossible now, and totally ridiculous. Truth-telling on this scale demands respect, and respect better be given, especially to the group Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which consists of 1300+ members, along with family members of 9/11 victims, who have come together to educate the public about the collapse of Building Se7en through a highly successful television ad campaign called "BuildingWhat?" View the ad here. Near the end of the 30 second ad, they ask viewers; "Bring justice to my son, my uncle, my nephew, my son, and thousands of others who died on September 11." If you have any humanity in your heart, you will listen to what they have to say, you will watch the collapse of Building 7, you will keep an open mind, and you will revisit the day that has defined America, and the world for over nine years.

Fox News Host Geraldo Rivera, who not long ago mocked and belittled 9/11 truth activists on air, is one person in the media who is changing with the times by wising up about 9/11. On Saturday November 13, 2010, Rivera interviewed two spokespersons for the "BuildingWhat?" ad campaign, Bob McIlvaine, whose son was murdered on September 11, and Tony Szamboti, a member of AE911Truth. Instead of berating the two men about their views, Rivera had a short, but thoughtful conversation with them, specifically talking about the implosion of Building Se7en, and the fact that more than 1300 architects and engineers are putting their careers and livelihoods on the line by demanding a new investigation into the September 11 attacks.

On Friday November 19, Rivera confirmed his doubts about the official explanation of the collapse of Building Se7en on Judge Napolitano Fox News show "Freedom Watch," telling the Judge, "I think that it is highly unlikely that our government would do anything nefarious on a scale of this epic nature. However, the building does come down in a way that is reminiscent of a controlled demolition." On the surface Rivera doesn't seem to be saying much. "Reminiscent" is too timid a word to use when reflecting on such a grave matter. Building Se7en was brought down by controlled demolition. There is no ifs, ands or butts about it. Still, it is understandable why Rivera is only dipping his feet into the water, instead of diving head first into the deep ocean of lies. 9/11 is a sensitive subject, if there ever was one. Journalists must tread these waters lightly. We can't all be an Alex Jones, or a Jesse Ventura. There is a lot of wisdom in taking small steps when approaching such a huge crime and cover-up as the 9/11 attacks and the war on terror.

So much of modern American history that we've learned in textbooks is a lie. It will take time for a society to re-learn what really happened, to familiarize itself with the truth about Washington's deep corruption, high treason, and multi-generational deception. The political awakening has already started, but it has a long way to go. People in the media can help speed up the awakening process by stepping forward and discussing these matters frankly with the American people, and the rest of the world. Without a new free press, America will be destroyed. If journalists are not serious about finding the truth now, when they are most needed, when the public mind is filled with lies told by tyrants and state terrorists, then what are they good for?

"If I had to choose between having a free press or a strong military," says General Peter Pace in this interview (5:15 mark), "I would choose a free press." That's a military man talking. Soldiers are not special. Every man can become an effective soldier if he choose to pick up a gun, but not every man can become an effective journalist if he chooses to pick up a pen. There is no skill in modern military killing. Just look at Afghanistan, where highly-trained and well-armed Western troops are having a tough time defeating war-torn Taliban fighters. If we expect our countries in the West to remain free on the backs of soldiers who are fighting thousands of miles away, then that is a sad reflection on us.

If freedom is to be won again in the West, there needs to be dedicated and truthful journalists reporting daily from the frontlines in the propaganda war by the government against the people. Journalists like John Pilger, Paul Craig Roberts, Gareth Porter, Russ Baker, Glenn Greenwald, and some more are carrying the weight right now. Imagine if there were a thousand more like the five I mentioned. Freedom would never be in danger, government lies would never be defended as the truth. Governments would know their role. Tyrants would be afraid to conspire against the people. Imagine if Gary Webb and Hunter S. Thompson were alive today. They did more for the defense of America and its principles than a thousand soldiers.

I hope Western journalists find their guts, and their spine soon. All will be forgiven if they start raising questions about the 9/11 attacks. I don't care if they continue to call 9/11 truth activists "nutjobs." I don't care if they still think 9/11 truth activists are dirt and nutty trash. They don't have to respect the titans that came before them like William Cooper, Alex Jones, David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Paul Craig Roberts, Jesse Ventura, and countless of other truth-tellers. I would be happy if they just pay respect where it is due; the truth.

Western journalists can redeem themselves and their craft by investigating the September 11 attacks, and telling the truth to the public. The state terrorists in Washington can only terrorize America, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the world so as long as we let them. If Western journalists can't muster enough courage to do their job, which is to investigate and report the truth, then they don't deserve to be called journalists. If they continue to fail and betray humanity, which is what they are doing by avoiding the questions about the 9/11 attacks, then they will forever be remembered in a worse light than the state terrorists who tried to enslave humanity.

Too Big to Allow: Some Unmentioned Ramifications of 911 Truth
By Michael Everyman
Published: June 3, 2009

Does anyone ever think about a world where the unofficial story of 911 actually turns out to be true? What would happen if an alternative 911 theory was proven as fact? Well, maybe people have thought about it, but seems like nobody ever says anything. Why? Sadly, it is for the very reason of the resulting disturbing scenario that any 911 truth may never be told, as it involves a wrench thrown into the system beyond anything most anyone would ever want to imagine..

For several years I have followed the 911 Truth Movement. I read, watched, and learned more than my share, heard opinions and counter-opinions, and like many, have sorrowfully concluded that there was definitely some sort of official deception involved in those September 2001 events, be it a large scale cover-up or a diabolical inside job. Debatable though my 911 opinion may be, it is not the purpose of this article.

How hackers can help us defeat Wall Street

How hackers can help us defeat Wall Street
By Paul B. Farrell

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — “American capitalism is broken,” warns economist Peter Morici. Worse, American government is broken with “two bankrupt political parties bankrupting the country,” warns Stanford political scientist Larry Diamond. Why? Because Wall Street is broken: Our engine of capitalism is broken.

Morici warns that Wall Street’s insatiable gluttony is strangling America’s 8,000 regional banks: “About 3,000 regional banks face extinction, and ordinary Americans can only borrow money at government run Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or at extortionist rates on big-bank-controlled credit cards.” Time to counterattack, or the clock runs out.

The Silver Lining In The 21st Century's Financial Storm Clouds

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.”President James Madison

On November 30 1999, thousands of anti-globalization activists swarmed the streets of Seattle to protest the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund for advancing the interests of big corporations and banking institutions at the cost of entire nations, people's health and security, and the global environment.

The peaceful activists successfully planted their flag of human dignity in front of the lawless corporate-government criminals and the global media. They called it the battle of Seattle because they knew a much larger war was awaiting America, and the world in the 21st century. Eleven years later, that war is finally here, and it took the world's greatest financial crisis to bring it about.

Many of the activists who gathered in Seattle in 1999 were on the right track, but they didn't know the magnitude of what the big banks on Wall Street and organizations like the World Bank were up to. They were clueless about Mankind's biggest enemy: the private Federal Reserve Bank. It is the largest criminal network in the world today. Owned by a small group of private banks, the FED has the ability to create money out of thin air and then loan it out to the U.S. government at interest, which is a deceitful way to put America into debt and force the American people to pay back the debt to the banks through taxes.

The FED's monumental fraud scheme became widely known in the last five years thanks to groundbreaking documentary films by Aaron Russo, Alex Jones, Peter Joseph, and others, and to the presidential run by Dr. Ron Paul who made the private FED his main target in 2008.

The activists in Seattle were ignorant about the money changers who own the FED Temple, and who follow a long tradition of money changers that "have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance," said James Madison.

It is a mistake to view globalization as an assault by capitalists upon the world. The men in charge of the world economy are not capitalists, they are private central bankers. They are criminal monopolists, and looters, with an eye towards human domination and the conquest of nations. This fact should make liberals and progressives rethink their criticism of the global banking system. It is time to put down Marx, and pick up Jefferson, and Adams.

You can't go around blaming capitalism for the financial crisis, and all the world's ills, when capitalism doesn't even exist in America. America is a kleptocracy. The American government is worse than a banana republic. It is controlled by private banks and lawless special interests. It is a government of wolves, and snakes.

Despite all the rhetoric about free markets, America's top corporations and banks don't practice free trade or follow the principles of capitalism. They don't believe in competition, or the rule of law, which is the basic requirement for a free market society. The CEOs and private bankers believe they are above the law. Above government. Above humanity.

In 2008, when the financial crisis happened, big banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase sent their goons to Washington to intimidate and scare members of Congress and told them to hand over the American people's money if they wanted to maintain order in the banking system, and order in society. But once they got the people's money, which Bloomberg reported was $12 trillion, they used it to give themselves billion-dollar bonuses, and for other reasons that weren't disclosed to the press or Congress, like "toward spending a portion of their federal rescue money on acquiring other financial firms rather than for issuing new loans."

More than two years after the initial bailout, there is a new round of looting. This time it is much more serious because the Obama administration didn't fix anything, and the economic crisis has gotten worse. Here are just four points to consider:

1) The unemployment rate in America is 22%.
2) The big banks like Citigroup, Bank Of America, JPMorgan & Wells Fargo are all insolvent.
3) There is the foreclosure fraud, and the Obama administration is helping the banks instead of the victims
4) Politicians and deficit hawks are lining up to cut Social Security and Medicare, as proposed by the Deficit Commission, while defending the military-industrial complex, the criminal bailouts to criminal Wall Street banks, the two criminal wars, and the 1000 military bases around the world.

There seems to be no hope. The banks are too powerful, and politicians too corrupt. A lot of us believe that spreading information and expressing rage on the internet is all that we can do. But this belief is false. There is always more that we can do to reverse the situation. Outlaws are not untouchable. Any group of criminals can be brought down once members of the community decide to come together. This is how justice is done on the street level, and on the political level.

We can win the war against the global private banking system. We already have the greatest form of communication in the internet, and enough of us have deep knowledge about the criminality of the banks. What we need are a few good ideas.

Word travels fast nowadays, so any non-violent resistance campaign that is based on a good idea is likely to succeed. A week ago, financial analyst Max Keiser voiced his "Crash JP Morgan - Buy Silver" idea on the Alex Jones Show, and people around the world have put his idea into action.

Individuals across the planet are getting energized just because of one smart idea. They now know that they have power. The global campaign to dethrone JP Morgan and the high priests of the global banking system is vibrant and real, not just a dream.

The criminal private banksters are afraid of global collective action because once people come together for justice and truth, they will be history. And no violence is required.
