The depraved international cabal that has a stranglehold on American and British political and financial power constitutes a new type of totalitarianism, pillaging the world through barbaric annihilation and creating a World Police State.The cabal strategy of pre-emptive strikes against any nation or group it brands as terrorist, imposing "regime change" on the recalcitrant country, and setting up military bases and puppet-regimes, has been clearly outlined by cabal toadies. The right-wing British historian Paul Johnson kicked off the justification for the new totalitarianism with a 2001 article in the Wall Street Journal entitled "The Answer to Terrorism? Colonialism."
American and world citizens remain totally oblivious to the monstrous, diabolical nature of this totalitarian regime; they assume it must have some modicum of concern for its people, its nation, and human decency. Wrong!
Absolutist dominion through imposing the force of one power over others through armed violence; fascistic dictatorship
A regime based on subordination of the individual to the state and strict control of all coercive measures such as censorship and state terrorism (think Patriot Act)
The political concept that the citizen should be totally subject to an absolute state authority
Characteristic of a cultural level more complex than primitive savagery but less advanced than civilization; marked by cruelty and lack of restraint; offending against contemporary standards of good taste or acceptability; backward
Previously, imperialism had been the underlying policy of the cabal when it seized Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Cuba, Philippines, and the Mariana Islands and set up the German empires that led to World War I and World War II.
British and American imperialism involved merely a certain amount of pride in having control over the holdings of their empires. The new totalitarianism has absolutely no concern; its only interest is imposing the diabolic policy of barabaric annihilation on the world, thereby reaping huge profits from its energy, financial, and "defense" industries and turning all countries into militarized police states whose peoples will be forced to become their cannon fodder.
"Although war is 'used' as an instrument of national and social policy, the fact that a society is organized for any degree of readiness for war supersedes its political and economic structure. War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social organization conflict or conspire. It is the system which has governed most human societies of record, as it is today."
Leonard Lewin, Report From Iron Mountain on
the Possibility and Desirability of Peace, 1967
People throughout the world must become aware that this new totalitarianism is completely unlike any previous geopolitical power structure. Its very essence is annihilation; it possesses no redeeming or mitigating feature. To allow yourself to think of these people as simply foolish, incompetent, irrational, or wrong-headed is as mistaken and misinformed as thinking that Hitler was merely a well-meaning but mistaken fearless leader of his people.
Uninformed people will say: "The cabal surely doesn't want to let the United States go to ruin, they have too much at stake. They must realize they're not winning in Iraq and Afghanistan."
They don't care a straw for what happens to American workers or the U.S. infrastructure; they gain power and wealth through annihilation--we must get that fixed in our minds! The more America becomes a drug-ridden war zone with a blasted economy and escalating crime (street crime and white collar crime), the more young people are forced to become cannon fodder for the cabal wars; they have no other jobs to go to. The cabal did not lose the war in Iraq, it won!
The cabal junta's invasion of Iraq involved much more than most people are aware of. Among the more obvious purposes were:
- The theft of Iraqi oil through privatization (piratization)
- The funneling of oil and no-bid contracts to cabal corporations
- The installation of multiple U.S military bases in the region
- The installation of a cabal puppet in control of Iraq (as in Afghanistan)
Some of the hidden reasons the demonic cabal invaded and occupied Iraq are:
To reconfigure the Middle East geopolitically (think invasion of Lebanon [July 2006], Iran and Syria)
To gain strategic control over Iraq's--and the surrounding territory's--hydrocarbon reserves to establish a cabal-based energy market to replace OPEC
To maintain the U.S. dollar as the monopoly currency for the critical international oil market
To dominate all nations of the world through the threat of military invasion and "regime change"
To steal billions of dollars from American taxpayers
"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
Taking Them At Their Word
Throughout much of the twentieth century, the cabal amassed wealth through the ownership and control of a variety of industries--as, for example, computers, automobiles, and transportation--even though their primary profits derived from the energy, financial, and "defense" sectors. Following the cabal's assassination of President John F. Kennedy, their primary strategy turned from general corruption to outright criminality. They destroyed the basic structure of American democracy in 2000 when they seized the presidency through the Jeb Bush-Katherine Harris-Supreme Court coup d'etat. They have now publicly declared that their mode of operation will be the seizure of power and profits through the amassing of military might beyond challenge from other nations or the rule of law.
"Three years ago, the Bush administration brushed aside the United Nations and all existing international legal restraints and began its illegal war. In so doing, it made clear that it no longer felt restrained by contracts, agreements and international law, but with its highly developed military strength based itself instead on the principle of "might is right."
"In other words, the political system established on the rubble left by the Second World War, and which required that every country abide by international rules and laws, ceased to exist. The Iraq war and its extension to Lebanon and the Palestinian territories represents a return to imperialist politics in its most aggressive and brutal form."
Ulrich Rippert, "Europe's inability to counter US-Israeli war policy," 7/21/06
Spokesmen for the criminal cabal have been blatantly outspoken about their primary goals; it's just that American and world citizens have found it difficult to believe that a group of people could be so ruthless, unjust, and cruel--so sub-human. It's time we took them at their word:
"We are an awesome revolutionary force. Creative destruction is our middle name. We tear down the old order every day... Seeing America undo old conventions, they [our enemies] fear us, for they do not wish to be undone. . . We wage total war because we fight in the name of an idea. . . Stability is for those older, burnt-out countries, not for the American dynamo."
Michael A. Ledeen, Freedom Chair holder at the American Enterprise Institute
"America has, and intends to keep, military strengths beyond challenge--thereby making the destabilizing arms races of other eras pointless. . ." Bush II, West Point, June 2, 2002
"The maximum amount of force can and should be used as quickly as possible for psychological impact-to demonstrate that the empire cannot be challenged with impunity. . . [W]e are in the business of bringing down hostile governments and creating governments favorable to us."
Harvard Professor Stephen P. Rosen
"There is only one step from fanaticism to barbarism."
Denis Diderot, 18th century Enlightenment leader
The cabal has made it clear that it will maintain an overpowering military force to deter any future military or economic challenge and discourage rival coalitions of any type. Whereas previous cabal strategy involved vulture capitalism, the new totalitarianism--involving an ever-weakening economy--now uses its military super-power status to extort, intimidate, and destroy its economic rivals--AND steal billions of dollars from American taxpayers.
Tod Lindberg, a columnist for the Reverend Moon's Washington Times, elaborated upon Bush's West Point policy announcement:
"What Mr. Bush is saying here is that the United States will never allow a 'peer competitor' to arise. We will never again be in a position of 'superpower rivalry,' let alone a cog in a multilateral balance of power."
"America and her allies may find themselves . . . not just occupying with troops but administering obdurate terrorist states. These may eventually include not only Afghanistan but Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Iran and Syria. Democratic regimes willing to abide by international law will be implanted where possible, but a Western political presence seems unavoidable in some cases."
Unending War For Unending Peace
We find it difficult to believe that a regime--such as that which controls the United States--could adopt barbaric annihilation through unending war as its primary operating principle. Yet, if we examine the history of the last century with a critical eye, we discover that to be the case.
The improvement of the lot of the working class under the Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, and John Kennedy administrations must be seen as bright exceptions to the prevailing ideology and practice of exploiting and "grinding" workers through vulture capitalism.
Once we recognize that the current ruling elite has no interest whatsoever in anything other than amassing wealth and power, we must ask: What is it about this strategy of ceaseless war that fulfills so well the goals of this totalitarian cabal ?
Modern industrial societies, such as America, Britain, Japan, Russia, China, and the European nations, develop the capacity to produce more than is required for their economic survival. A ruling faction that has no interest in improving the lot of the working class must find the most profitable and efficient way to "use up" this surplus production of goods, services, and people. Perpetual armed conflict provides the criminal rulers with a "balance wheel," a most effective technique of destroying the surplus. Only through this constant production-and-destruction cycle can the rulers maintain their industrial and financial empires.
In previous decades, weaponry was amassed by the cabal for the purpose of not being used--merely to have on hand in case of emergency and to threaten the cabal's enemies in the ongoing "cold war" "arms race." That former policy has now been scrapped; the new totalitarianism's primary strategy is unending annihilation through unending war.
"The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent. Even when weapons of war are not actually destroyed, their manufacture is still a convenient way of expending labour power without producing anything that can be consumed."
George Orwell, 1984
The Despicable Profiteering by the Cabal
The Iraq war hoax the Bush junta perpetrated on the American people was so astounding and repulsive that people found it difficult to believe--until they saw the evidence for themselves in such videos and books as those listed below.
The naked truth about the cabal rip-off of the American taxpayer is so repulsive that when US citizens learn about it there may well be a vast uprising to throw these thugs out and try them for war crimes and fraud.
- Halliburton, Blackwater, and other cabal companies stole (and continue to steal) billions outright--without any risk of being caught or prosecuted.
When they're accidentally caught, they pay a token fine and the billions are never recovered.
- Cabal corporations have devised new ways to steal money "legally."
- Trillions of tax-payers' dollars have been given to capitalists banksters through "bail-outs"
- Billions are being handed to crony companies on a no-bid, cost-plus basis.
- Cost-plus contracts mean crony companies like Halliburton, Bechtel, Blackwater USA, and the rest make greater profit the more they spend, so they're encouraged to spend without regard to cost.
- Wasting money and materiel is now a new means for cabal companies to make more profit, rather than efficiency or competence.
When you see this profiteering with your own eyes in the tapes and books that expose this outrage, you realize that the Iraq war--and all wars contrived by the cabal--are in essence nothing more than a means of making profit by deliberately killing American military and civilian personnel.
You may want to see more of the details about the cabal profiteering and see how profiteering runs in the Bush family.
One of the most despicable aspects of this criminal profiteering is that not one of our political leaders--Republican or Democratic--who've traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan have told the American people about this shocking new criminal swindle.
The New Dictatorship
The new totalitarianism doesn't maintain even the pretence of democratic rule; it's established an unabashed dictatorship (think domestic spying, warrantless arrests, and seizure of all three branches of the federal government). Without ongoing warfare, a totalitarian regime is unable to obtain acquiescence in its "legitimacy" or right to rule the society. The possibility and actuality of war provide the sense of external necessity which dictatorships require to remain in power. Thus the Reichstag syndrome: the deliberate orchestration of attacks against the nation by the ruling faction which are "spun" into external aggression by a foreign power: the 1933 Reichstag fire, 9/11, the Spanish and British railway bombs, and stay tuned for another cabal-orchestrated "terrorist attack" in a theater of operation near you.
A totalitarian autocracy finds war to be a very effective ideological clarifier. People are either for the junta or against it. During armed conflict, there are, to put it simply, only two sides to a question because there cannot be more than two sides to a war. You are either "for" the brave soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan (or Iran, or ?) or you are "for" the evil terrorists.
The wars of totalitarian regimes are, therefore, not "caused" by international conflicts of interest. A war-making dictatorship requires--and thus brings about--such conflicts. With the only goals the amassing of wealth and power by the ruling elite, the capacity of a nation to make war expresses the greatest social power it can exercise.
When this essay was originally written (July 2006), Israel, the fourth most powerful military power in the world, had found an excuse to put into operation its long-standing, carefully constructed plan to invade Lebanon and escalate the Middle-East "conflict" into threats against Iran and Syria. This attack by Israel--sanctioned by the international cabal--wasn't about Lebanon, Gaza, Hamas, or Hezbollah. It was about Iran and Syria, the only countries in the region capable and determined to challenge Israel and the U.S. As The Times (London) reported on 5/11/02, Israeli leader Sharon called for the U.S. to attack Iran the moment the invasion of Iraq was complete.
Israeli intelligence constantly points the finger at Iran and Syria for supplying weapons and funds to Lebanon and the Palestinians; as if the cabal isn't doing this for Israel in a far more massive way. Tune into your favorite cabal-owned and controlled TV or radio "news" program this evening and you'll find an American representative of the Israeli lobby working overtime to target Iran and Syria.
The totalitarian regime's War against Iran and Syria has been underway for several years, with covert military and financial actions against both countries an ongoing operation on the part of both America and Israel. America now has at least fourteen military bases in Iraq to boost its ability to carry out military strikes against Iran's nuclear sites from Iraq. But those bases also expose the American forces to a possible Iranian retaliation. Israeli military and intelligence forces have been operating out of Iraq--with incursions into northern Iran--for several years.
The most recent "excuse" for cabal escalation of violence in the Middle East began with the Hamas rise to power in Palestine and Hezbollah gaining seats in the administrative council of Lebanon. Israel and the United States immediately announced that they would, sooner or later, punish the people of Palestine and Lebanon for voting the wrong way in free elections. Hezbollah was the de facto government in southern Lebanon as well as part of the coalition government in Beirut. When the Israelis contrived the excuse in the capture of Corporal Gilad Shalit by Palestinian forces--while for the past decade they had captured and killed hundreds of Palestinians--the punishment was severe indeed.
The actual "cause" of the July, 2006 incursion of Israeli forces into Lebanon appears to have been the June 24 Israeli abduction of two Gaza civilians, a doctor and his brother. They are reported to have been taken to Israel, presumably; nobody knows their fate. On June 25, "militants" in Gaza, probably Islamic Jihad, abducted an Israeli soldier across the border. The abduction of Corporal Shalit was the only thing American TV "commentators" talked about; Israel's original abduction was not even mentioned. Israel used the abduction of Shalit as the excuse for the escalation of Israeli attacks on Gaza.
It now appears that a Palestinian-Israeli peace agreement was in the works and that the Israeli Shin Bet internal Security Service vetoed the settlement because it interfered with their prior plans to invade, destroy, and occupy Lebanon.
The Israeli abduction of the two Gaza civilians was actually part of Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's West Bank annexation operation--what's been "spun" as "convergence" and described in the U.S. as a "withdrawal." In fact it's a continuation of the ongoing Israeli annexation of the valuable lands and resources--including water--of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley and the decades-long, non-ending Israeli attacks on civilian and military groups among the Lebanese and the Palestinians.
In November, 2012 Israel--with the full support and approval of the U.S.--attacked and began to utterly destroy Gaza.
"The way to break this cycle is for all actors to negotiate a political solution that responds to their legitimate grievances and demands. Everyone involved seems prepared to do this, except for Israel and the US, who rely on military force, prolonged occupations, and diplomatic sanctions and threats. What will Israel and the US do when there are no more Arab airports, bridges and power stations to destroy? The futility of such policies should be clear by now, and therefore a diplomatic solution should be sought seriously for the first time."

The Totalitarian "Force Projection"
The demonic cabal's new brand of totalitarianism does not need foreign colonies the way the Romans did; its only requirement is control of resources, territories, and peoples through the placing of strategic military bases throughout the world, allowing it to deploy forces almost anywhere on the planet at lightning speed. In line with their overall policy of barbaric annihilation, it invades a country and sets about to destroy its government, its infrastructure, and its people.
The cabal has done this in El Salvador, Panama, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Iraq. If you want to understand what kind of world the cabal has in store for us, you have only to look at Afghanistan. This country has essentially been decimated, reduced to a barbaric anarchy of war-lords, drug-running Taliban gangs, roving bands of pillaging marauders, and a blasted economy propped up by a heroin industry which supplies 60% of the heroin consumed in the world. Meanwhile the military installations are used to guard the region's gas and oil wells and pipelines while an American puppet sits in Kabul. If you look carefully, you can see that this same pattern of planned chaos is rapidly becoming the pattern in America as well.
This insane scorched earth cabal strategy even has an official name: the "Salvador Option." This secret strategy was initiated under Jimmy Carter and subsequently used during the Reagan administration's fight against the leftist guerrilla insurgency in El Salvador in the early 1980s, supporting "nationalist" gangs that also included death squads, with money, equipment and military training. In 2006 Newsweek published an article about this barbaric policy, which the military admitted it was "considering.""According to military insiders familiar with the discussions inside the Pentagon, using the 'The Salvador Option' in Iraq involved sending Special Forces teams to train Iraqi squads, most likely Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and Shia armed groups to attack Iraqi Sunnis inside the country and at its border with Syria.
"But it hadn't been agreed whether this would be a policy of assassination or so-called 'snatch' operations, where targets are sent to secret facilities for interrogation, officials told Newsweek, whose article was circulated among various media outlets and strongly rejected by Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld.
"They also stated that during the talks, officials recommended that while U.S. Special Forces would lead operations in Syria, activities inside Iraq itself would be carried out by Iraqi militias.
"In a January 10  interview, retired General Wayne Downing, former head of all U.S. special operations forces, stated that U.S.-backed death squads had been plotting and did actually carry out attacks against leaders of the so-called insurgency since March 2003.
"But in the mainstream press, Donald Rumsfeld, and General Downing all refused to admit that the Salvador Option was underway in Iraq." 1
The "Salvador Option" policy of annihilation was used in Iraq from the time the cabal invaded it. Naive people the world over wonder how the Bush junta could have allowed itself to have failed so miserably in Iraq. Relative to its goals, the cabal has not failed in Iraq at all. It has destroyed the infrastructure, the government, and the people, while establishing at least fourteen military bases with which it guards the privatized Iraqi energy resources and provides a "force projection" to threaten and intimidate the surrounding nations, especially Iran and Syria and even including Saudi Arabia. The cabal policy of deliberately encouraging civil war between Sunni, Shia, and Kurd factions has been successful in bringing full destruction to Iraq.
As Harvard Professor Stephen P. Rosen explains: "We are in the business of bringing down hostile governments and creating governments favorable to us. Conventional international wars end and troops are brought back home. Imperial wars end, but imperial garrisons must be left in place for decades to ensure order and stability. This is, in fact, what we are beginning to see, first in the Balkans and now in Central Asia. In addition to advanced-technology weaponry, an imperial position requires a large but lightly armed ground force for garrison purposes and as reassurance for allies who want American forces on their soil as symbols of our commitment to their defense." 2
The new totalitarian regime has taken a page from the Roman handbook: to rule the world it's not enough to have overpowering military might--the rest of the world must be fully aware of that might and fear it.
| Totalitarianism requires propaganda such as 24-hour news coverage of Israeli attacks on Lebanon. Other nations get the message: the demonic cabal's military superiority will annihilate anyone or anything that gets in its way.
Freedom Through Knowing the Truth
The reason we must focus on the deadly nature of this new totalitarianism is to protect ourselves from being taken in by the false "world" it's creating. We're in a battle not merely for whether this or that particular puppet regime of the demonic cabal starts this pre-emptive war or that, but whether or not our very being will be subverted by their lies and false values. A depraved society--such as we now face--can destroy a person's soul, because the disorder of society is a disease in the psyche of its members. We must guard our souls against the degradations of the surrounding society which presses on us. It's necessary for us to diagnose the health and disease in our individual souls and at the same time examine disorder in the deranged new totalitarianism.
In 2003, UK Defence Minister Geoff Hoon declared in Parliament that the Iraqi mothers of innocent children killed by American-British cluster-bombs would one day be "grateful" for sacrificing the fruit of their wombs to the invaders. 3
Our resistance to a barbaric world depends for its success on a precise comprehension of those against whom we struggle. One of the requirements for discerning the true essence of our antagonists is to describe their beliefs and actions in a straightforward manner. We must, in other words, identify the demonic cabal's new operating principle by its true designation: the new totalitarianism of barbaric annihilation--not mindlessly dismissing it as an incompetent but well-intentioned regime. Our search for understanding and truth arises out of the resistance of our souls to their destruction by a perverted world. The situation we now face is the life-or-death of our very being."To be deceived or uninformed in the soul about true being means that 'the lie itself' has taken possession of 'the highest part of himself' and steeped it into 'ignorance of the soul.'"
Plato, Gorgias (382a-b)
Not working to discover the truth and not forming reasoned opinions about what's happening in the world is a way of being complicit in the new totalitarianism.
We must be engaged in social-political analysis--as well as activities of struggle and dissent--because the order or disorder of a society shapes its citizens' minds and souls. All persons who want to safeguard themselves must search assiduously for the truth: what's really happening in the world.
People worldwide must resist the mind-manipulation of a Karl Rove or any of the other members of the demonic cabal. By making the effort to inform themselves, persons anywhere in the world can thwart the attempt by the world of untruth to corrupt their minds and souls. Any genuine struggle against the new totalitarianism must expose and fight against the world of untruth created by the criminal cabal. If you read something by a so-called contemporary thinker that isn't battling against the new form of totalitarianism, then you know that he or she is not a genuine participant in the battle for truth.
"A man, or a society, is civilized if truth, beauty, adventure, art, peace are the dominant qualities, and if these five qualities are exhibited in all phases of experience."
A. H. Johnson, Whitehead's Philosophy of Civilization
One of the major onslaughts by the cabal against the minds of citizens worldwide is their scam of "moral rearmament of totalitarianism." This swindle began with the first Gulf War, when the "coalition forces" were cast in the light of "champion" of the Kurds and Kuwaitis, who had pleaded for Western intervention against the satanic Saddam Hussein. For cabal fellow-travelers, the Gulf War vindicated the West. Forget about the cabal incursions in Suez, Algeria, and Vietnam; totalitarian invasion had been legitimate all along. Bush I included mention of Korea and Vietnam in his 1992 State of the Union address, pretending that even the defeat of Vietnam could be reconverted into a triumph through the moral regeneration of totalitarianism.
Part of the cabal pretence in this scheme of barbaric annihilation is "Democracy by force," trying to make the world believe the lie that it's maintaining democratic principles in America and exporting this way of life to other nations. When thinking people the world over examine carefully what's happening, they see the cabal's client states--Britain, Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, India, Egypt--as nothing more than dictatorships controlled by the cabal--with not a scintilla of true democracy in the lot.
Fortunately, even some leaders of other nations see through the cabal lies and subterfuge--such as the duly elected president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. In a 2006 visit to Britain, Chavez was asked by a BBC journalist whether he was behaving a bit like his arch-enemy George W. Bush by taking a "you're with us or against us" attitude. President Chavez, aghast at such a question, replied, "It is the first time I have been offended this way in public--to be compared to the biggest perpetrator of genocide the world has known. To be compared to an assassin, someone who has committed genocide, an immoral man who should be put in jail by an international court. What exactly are these attitudes?
"Have we invaded any country?" he asked to great applause from the people surrounding him. Chavez's response electrified the audience.
Chavez is the only leader of a foreign nation who has called the July, 2006 Israeli invasion and occupation of Lebanon what it really is: a new holocaust.
Getting the Language--and the Understanding--Right
In struggling against this new form of totalitarianism, we must use the correct terms to keep things straight in our minds. It's necessary to describe things accurately to understand them in the correct manner. For example, we can no longer use such phrases as "America attacked Iraq." "America" didn't attack Iraq, the demonic cabal that controls America carried out the invasion and decimation of Iraq. We must distinguish ourselves--Americans--from our noxious rulers--and encourage citizens worldwide to separate in their minds the criminal activities of the cabal from the American people.
"I have repeatedly said that the only time to use Social Security money is in times of war, times of recession, or times of severe emergency. And I mean that."
President George W. Bush, September 6, 2001, five days before the terrorist assaults on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon
We must see the cabal wars for what they are: destructive military "defense" spending as merely a contrived means for diverting tax money from social programs--hidden ways for rulers to amass power and wealth, and eliminate human populations.
When we call the cabal wars "wasteful," we're speaking from our perspective: we see the "waste" of human and technological resources. From the junta's perspective wars aren't "wasteful," but "strategically effective" in destroying armaments that American tax dollars pay the "defense industry" corporations to manufacture, "strategically necessary" in ridding the American rulers of unnecessary people to support through Social Security and other "wasteful" social programs.
If we're to understand what's happening in the world, we must view events from the cabal's perspective as well as ours. For example, decent American citizens see the failure of "reconstruction" in Iraq and New Orleans (following the Katrina disaster) as evidence of sheer "incompetence," wondering how American leaders can allow such blatant ineptitude to occur. Dubya wasn't facetious when he said to FEMA director Michael Brown he had done "a heck of a job" and awarded L. Paul Bremer the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
As head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, Bremer had done a superb job of seeing that no-bid contracts went almost exclusively to Vice President Dick Cheney's Halliburton corporation, plus allowing the outright theft of billions of dollars by select fellow-criminals. (Forget about the fact that Iraq is still a stricken war zone with almost none of the infrastructure rebuilt.)
FEMA Chief Michael Brown had done a heck of a job for the cabal: he had made sure that a troublesome section of New Orleans was laid waste and poor white and black people were left homeless and without food or medical supplies for days. Brown's successor did an even more outstanding job of seeing that most of the Katrina "reconstruction" no-bid contracts went to Halliburton and that millions in false claims went to help Bush win Florida votes.
We must recognize the hyperbolic insanity of the cabal's policies and not disregard their actions by viewing them from only our perspective.
"There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle."
Joseph Heller, Catch-22, 1961
One final example puts a clincher to this. 9/11 has been seen by most of the world as perhaps the worst intelligence failure in U.S. history. So why did ex-CIA Director George "Slam-dunk" Tenet join Bremer in the line to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom? My best guess would be because he was complicit in 9/11, that he saw that no one in the CIA blew the whistle to make it evident that Bush II was lying about weapons of mass destruction, and that the compromising and degrading of the CIA continued apace under his term of service as was initiated under Bush I and other CIA directors.
We must think outside the box if we're to understand this new form of totalitarianism. We can put nothing past them; they are capable of the most inhuman and unthinkable acts of depravity. The best hypothesis we have to explain 9/11 is that the cabal was complicit in its planning and accomplishment.
As we look at Afghanistan, Iraq, and now the escalating violence aimed at Lebanon, Iran and Syria, we have to come up with a hypothesis that best explains all these variables. Deprived of the all-purpose cold-war Soviet threat since 1991, the cabal has searched for credible new candidates to play the role of world villain. In a January, 1991 article in International Affairs titled "Christianity and Islam," Edward Mortimer noted that in the neo-conservative camp "many even felt the need to discover a new threat to replace the Soviet one" and for this purpose Islam "lay ready to hand." The totalitarian cabal appears to have decided that Islam possesses all the right ingredients to provide a pretext for invading, destroying, and "occupying" the Middle-East--and the world.
As the map below shows, the areas of Shia influence are surrounded by Sunni powers.
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together. . ."
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Speech, 1961
Why And How We Must Fight
In struggling against this new form of barbaric totalitarianism, we first need to realize that what we face is not just a somewhat incompetent, defective government, but a demonic force against which we must engage in a life-or-death battle for survival.
Totalitarian regimes destroy their own people and their own nation in the same way they annihilate other nations and peoples.|
Throughout this essay, you've been encouraged to link out to ancillary essays which demonstrate that the cabal that's seized political and financial power in America has turned the nation into:
A police state
A militarist regime
A regime seeking to dominate the world
A tyranny attempting to control the world's energy supplies
A syndicate seeking to impose the American dollar as the world's reserve currency
A banana republic in which leaders are put into power through assassinations, coups d'etat, and fixed elections
A fascist regime that is already setting up detention camps for those who dissent
We must not ignore or downplay the vital threat this totalitarian regime presents to us as individuals and as a nation. Other people have ignored just this kind of buildup of totalitarian power and have found themselves the victims of torture, imprisonment, and murder.
It should be clear to any thinking person that we must engage in this struggle against the new totalitarianism--to save ourselves and our nation from this "foreign" cabal animated by their demonic, alien ideology of barbaric annihilation.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the down-stairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of a half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur - what if it had been driven off of or its tires spiked? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt.
If .... if... We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation. We spent ourselves in one unrestrained outburst in 1917, and then we hurried to submit. We submitted with pleasure! . . We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago, 1973

"The major television networks and cable channels, through which much of the population receives its information about world events, have played an especially foul role in concealing the real political and social questions. To watch the television news channels and network news programs for a single afternoon and evening is largely to bathe in ignorance and reaction. . . The news on American television is nothing but propaganda. It has, in fact, a totalitarian character." World Socialist Web Site, "American media unquestioningly defends Israeli violence," 7/21/06
