The Other Oil Spill


I don’t know how it has come to this, but the purposeful ignorance of such things as this feels like the end of our collective soul.

Apathy is now the work ethic; organized legal crime its creature comfort; and “The Turning Away” -  as Pink Floyd so eloquently denoted in its lyrics – is upon us.

Will I help this small town and its dying people by helping to spread the following videos?

Possibly… But then who did anything about the Gulf spill, The Exxon Valdez spill, and so many others that received worldwide press???

We are hopeless because we are helpless, and helpless because we are dependent on the very government that allows this to happen.

Perhaps fate has allowed you to escape such folly, but the least you can do for these people is to hear their story, and pass it on…

In the News…

And then there is the propaganda…

The Water Thieves: Oil Companies And The Droughts They Cause


As media conglomerates portray frightening but false stories of global warming and tell us that we are the overpopulated reason for which the water supply is running at all-time lows in reservoirs, lakes, man-made lakes, rivers, ponds, etc… the unknown reason behind this water depletion needs to see the light of day.

And so, this is a brief explanation of who has been stealing our water, and possibly a partial reason that dams and reservoirs were constructed in the first place…

When an oil or natural gas company or one of its contractors drills for oil or extracts natural gas from the earth, a space (or vacuum) is left underground for which the oil used to fill. An easy way to think about this is to compare this process to a syringe sucking the blood from your body.

Now, if that syringe was big enough it would suck your body completely dry of blood. This would leave your body looking like a shriveled up raisin, because your body cannot recreate the fluids fast enough to keep up with the sucking power of the syringe. Therefore, your body would behave like a milk jug would as you sucked all of the liquid or air (gas) out.

This extraction of air (or liquid) causes a vacuum, and stays that way as long as the seal is not broken. If you were to try and spread out the milk jug to its proper shape, the vacuum (or lack of air) would prevent you from doing so. This is because the air is only dense enough to support the jugs currently collapsed shape, and that inside space must be filled with something (air,gas,liquid) at some pressure to be able to push out and retake its previous shape. Thus, if you pull on one side, the opposite side will collapse further inward.

If you broke the seal formed by your mouth and that of the plastic jug, a sudden burst of air would rush in and the jug would re-inflate itself according to the amount of pressure caused by that air. It would not be enough to reform the plastic jug to its original shape without you actually applying pressure to the inside of that container by resealing your mouth onto the jug and blowing into it.

I know everybody reading this has done this to at least one water bottle at least once in their life!

The only way to un-raisin the body would be to re-inject either the extracted blood… or a replacement liquid. And so, as long as the same amount or mass of a different liquid is replaced with sufficient pressure applied to the syringe, the body will likely go back to normal, though the lifeblood which supports life cannot be replaced with anything but blood. Thus, life will cease to exist. But regardless, as long as the entry hole for the syringe is plugged up and the liquid introduced is not smaller than the microscopic holes of which the container is constructed (in this case veins and the skin), the liquid will stay in the body. Think embalming…

Of course, the body, once decomposition begins, will eventually weaken to the point where the liquid inside (in a vacuum) breaks its container due to deterioration and leaks, soaks into something else, or evaporates. Wear and tear…

What’s my point?

Likewise, the oil reserves which run under ground beneath the entirety of the United States, are very similar to the above described human body full of blood. Most important to understand, is that these oil reserves are not individual bodies of oil, but rather, one continental mass of black crude and natural gas.

You see, there is a literal ocean of oil and natural gas right underneath our feet, flowing like blood throughout the continent and beyond. This is called the Hugoton Panhandle Natural Gas Reserve -or- H-P Reserve for short.

The oil and gas in the H-P Reserve runs all the way from the northern tip of Canada, to the southern most tip of Mexico, and from ten miles west into our Pacific Ocean from California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, and all the way across the continental United States, Canada, and Mexico to about ten miles or so east of our land, into our Atlantic Ocean.

In other words, The United States, Canada, and Mexico are virtually floating on a body of interconnected, pools and veins of oil!

This means that, just as when a doctor takes a syringe full of blood from your body (your arm is just a part of your body with blood flowing into it from the whole), when an oil or gas company taps into this reserve at one spot on the continent, they are literally taking oil or gas from a totally encompassing collective pool by tapping a single vein from the whole of this ocean of oil: the H-P Reserve.

So, the entire North American continent is perched directly over the H-P Reserve.

And within it’s tectonic structure, the continent of North America also includes the Gulf of Mexico. This is to say that the same oil that is located 35,000 feet below the oceans surface for which British Petroleum (BP) decided against all warnings and better judgment to drill more that 30,000 feet below the ocean bottom could have been sucked out of the Earth at just about any location in North America. In some areas in the United States, that oil is a mere 50 feet below the dry land surface.

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this current BP oil leak, is that this is not just an oil leak. Noxious, poisonous gasses like Benzine are being spewed from now multiple fissures in the bedrock of the oceans floor.

So what does this all mean?

Energy and natural gas companies own or have governmental rights to well over 80 million acres of the most oil and gas rich land in the United States, and the world. In short – deep ocean drilling is not in any way necessary.

As for natural gas, the process by which these corporations extract the natural gas from these underground caverns and veins is to pump mass amounts of water (from our rivers and drinking water reservoirs that we are taxed for) into these chambers. This water pushes the natural gas through the chambers until it reaches an extraction point that pumps it out into the natural gas pipelines, which carry it to the energy company’s processing plants. This wasting of one vital precious resource to extract another less urgent natural resource has been going on for more than 100 years.

Of course, this extraction point is only viable as long as the “replacement water” hasn’t filled up or made the gas pressure un-extractable in the caverns holding the pressurized natural gas. Once this happens, these giant energy companies abandon the extraction point and move on to another where the gas pressure is more dense and extractable by the same replacement water system.

And the reservoirs and rivers continue to see record low levels. And water rationing takes place amongst the unknowing people of American towns and cities. And farms are denied water in lieu of more profitable energy companies. And the bread basket that was America slowly rots…

Eventually, the replacement water seeps through the porous shale soil and rock that is dense enough only to hold the oil at bay, and gravity pulls this water down into the earth and sometimes into the river-like aquifers that flow beneath the H-P Reserve. And the energy companies know that eventually the vacuum that is left over from that water slowly being drained from the encompassing and interconnected reserve’s tunnel system will pump more natural gas from other parts of the whole of the H-P Reserve. And eventually that tunnel system will have enough gas reintroduced into it that the same energy company will come back and start the whole process over again, extracting the gas with even more “replacement water”, depleting the gas, and abandoning the sight yet again until the water seeps into the earth once again and the vacuum pulls even more gas into the chambers and the process is repeated again and again and again.

But who is replacing the water? Who is watching over the rivers and reservoirs?

Answer: the same government that has financial and controlling stock investments in these energy and oil companies! The same government that gives these oil and gas companies no-bid contracts to steal and destroy our water supply. The same government that is passing legislation as we speak to tax your carbon emissions and force you to ration your water use and not water your garden. The corporation that is United States Inc.

There is just one small problem…

There is only a finite amount of gas produced in these H-P Reserve tunnels. But the vacuum must still be re-filled with something, right?

As the vacuum that is created gets more intense as more and more gas and replacement water gets sucked out of the reserve tunnels, something must fill in the space, just as the milk jug caves in on its opposite side as you pull it without a reintroduction of air, gas, or liquid.

So what is smaller on a molecular level than gas? How about oxygen? And so we have air being forced into these caverns to relieve the pressure caused by the vacuum created by the energy companies, mostly through the very vent pipes that they drilled in the first place.

Now, for all of you couch chemists out there… what happens when you mix gas and oxygen?

That’s right, it becomes explosive!

I wont say that I can comprehend what would happen in the case of a spark that ignited anywhere in this underground system of interconnected tunnels and caverns… but I must say that it sounds like the whole of America is sitting on top of a ticking time-bomb that, once ignited, might just make Hiroshima look like a campfire.

Water is a precious commodity, finite and life-giving. Can we really sit back and allow these corporations (including our own government) to suck our life force dry?

I don’t know what to do about this, but I do know that knowledge and education is the key.

Now that you know about the water thieves, what will you do about it?

The Government Casino


I used to deal blackjack in South Lake Tahoe. It was a good job – good benefits, really good tips, and I got to live in the beautiful and clean mountains of Tahoe. But as with everything else in life, once the initial excitement of a new job is absorbed, and the realization of the reality of what it is you are actually doing in your job and how it either benefits or harms the people who are your customers, the whole thing falls apart.

I learned many things in that job… not the least of which was the application of statistics and the law of averages and odds to take advantage of the average person who likes to gamble (sheep without a clue). And unfortunately, I learned that most businesses out there that deal with the making of money by usury, gambling, and investments are indeed a cancer on humanity, and are slowly destroying the fabric of our freedom and replacing it with destitution and debt.

On that note… I’d like to compare our corporate government and the stock markets to a casino, and see if there is any distinguishable difference between the two…

I’d like to mention this one thing before I start, since I think it is relevant to this comparison. The feeling I used to get when i walked into a casino and layed my money on the table – the anxiety of risk mixed with the illogical emotional orgasm at the prospects of winning a fortune  – was the same feeling I used to get when I would buy shares in a stock from a company that really, in hind sight, I knew nothing about. Gambling is gambling, whether you call it investing or insist is is just a game.

First of all, as we enter into the casino, we have to exchange our money for chips. Similar to buying a piece of paper (called a stock certificate) representing the purchasing of a stock, the casino sells chips in exchange for your hard earned cash, and without hesitation I might add, considering the prospects of you actually building wealth from those chips. So in essence, the casino sells you a worthless clay or plastic chip that represents the value of the money you exchanged for it, knowing that the only place you can spend that chip (in-house money) is in their casino. As with a stock certificate, the chip is simply a tool used for gambling – a talisman which mimics wealth but is actually worthless paper, clay, or plastic that can be traded and bet for other similar but worthless talismans.

The only way that chip has any value is if you cash it back in for its monetary equivalent. The same goes for a stock certificate. If a stock goes down in value, or your chips become less than what you started with, your losses are only realized when you actually cash these objects in for their current value. So, the only way you lose money on your gambling (investment) is to cash in your talisman after it has lost value. Of course no one wants to do that, and so most of us will hold on to the chips or papers that represent our money, and watch it slowly dwindle due to forces that are mostly outside of our control, or from an addiction to this obsurd excitement we get from the thought of our luck turning around and still reaping huge rewards.

But if that casino goes out of business or declares bankruptcy, and you are still holding that chip or piece of paper, the casino or company that these talismans represent have no obligation to pay you the value on their face. In this way, their value is best defined as “conditionally” worthless – the condition being that you aren’t educated or knowledgeable enough about how the casino or the company and the market it trades through works to know when the right time to trade them back in will be.

And we must remember that when we loose a chip to a hot dealer or we lose a dollar on a bad stock pick, that dollar doesn’t just get lost and disappear off of the market and out of the monetary system, and instead it goes into someone elese’s account. The stock gets lower in value, and someone behind the scenes gets richer. One dollar lost by you is another dollar gained by someone else. And by someone else I generally mean the government, it’s investment owned corporations, and the wealthy elite – who became wealthy by manipulating the markets into making you lose your wealth in thier shell game they call “the stock market”.

Now, the casino goes out of its way to entertain, wine, and dine you so that you will come back for more. It makes sure that there are no clocks or windows for you to see outside, so that the comprehension of time and of day and night are virtually non-existent. It places flashy lights, clever advertising, winning bells, and half naked cocktail waitresses all around you to add to your distraction. It pumps specific mood altering vibrational sound and music at low levels to keep you docile and in a trance-like state for the duration of your stay. And it has complete control over the odds, knowing that it will always come out financially ahead over most of its gamblers in the long run.

Does this sound like the government and the stock market to you? Let’s see…

The government owned television networks keep you entertained and give you reality shows and “to-be-continued” sitcoms so that you will continuously come back for more. The television holds you in a trance-like flash induced state as it pumps specific mood enhancing and mind-altering programing and sound into your living room. It bombards you with flashing lights and advertising. The news and financial “entertainment” shows give you false information about stocks and what is a good investment, similar to the mth propegated by casinos about your odds of winning against them. Billboards, radio, and other media outlets purposefully expose you to more than 3000 distracting advertisements a day, wherever you go. Sex is the weapon of choice in this advertising, and you are sold purely nonsexual products like milk and coffee by beautiful and scantily clad male and female models and Hollywood stars. And the very products and services that are being sold to you, completely distract you from what is really happening…

What is happening?

You are trading in your money for worthless stuff you don’t need and gambling the rest of your money away investing in the stocks that the government and its investment owned corporations have complete control over (the odds are fixed!). The market is manipulated on a constant basis, completely controlled by the people in power. Think of it this way… if all Fortune 500 companies are collectively owned through government investments by the over 174,000 individual governments around the United States (collectively as one conglomerate individual government body – The U.S. government corporation) then it is natural and logical to assume that the value of these corporations on the open market are also in the control of the government who owns and reinvests in their majority shares as well as the monetary system that they thrive in. The price of Haliburton stock, for instance, goes up when the government “invests” in the destruction of the once beautiful country of Iraq. Nation building and re-building is huge business. And market shares soar when that corporations services are sudenly needed to rebuild the nation that our corporate government decides to destroy, and awards outragous no bid contracts to its own investment-owned company.

Translation: nothing happens randomly in the stock market, and corporations rise and fall (and are repurchased for pennies and conglomerated) at the whim of our corporate government!

OK, back to the casino…

The games that are provided for us to play in the casinos are specifically invented to assure that the odds are always in the favor of the house (the casino). The illusion and legends of being able to beat the casino are propagated to the extreme to the general public, while the men who have lost small fortunes – and in the process their businesses, homes, families, and lives – go unmentioned. (And yes, I saw small fortunes go through my hands as a dealer, enough to feed a small country. And I couldn’t believe it when cutomers were still in the same seat 24 hours later with a slumped over, dazed, exhausted look on thier faces… and yet still the glimmer of hope in thier eyes.)

And as soon as the money dries up, the casino perks, free rooms, food, and entertainment dry up as well.

Comparatively, once the sheep-like American investors lose thier savings and investment wealth in the stock market, thier perks dry up as well. Many end up homeless on the street, broke and hungary, while the money they lost is reinvested back into the governments crime syndiccate called the UNITED STATES.

What are the chances of winning at blackjack?

The “odds” that everyone seems to cling to as they sit on the losing side of the table go something like this: the house has a slight advantage (about 54% chance of winning). But these odds are in reality based on a computer model simulating randomly generated blackjack hands, where a computer player and a computer dealer play the same way by a specific set of rules in a perfect uninterupted simulation for millions of hands. Strangely, these are the odds by which most players play the game. But these odds change dramatically when other variables are included into the equation. For instance, new players don’t know the rules, and therefore will play differently than the computer model and the experienced gamblers. This of course changes the odds, as more or less cards are played in each individual hand. Interestingly, the new players often win on thier first blackjack session, simply because they don’t follow a specific set of rules. They think about thier options, and make amatur but somewhat educated guesses. And when they don’t follow the advice of the other players, they often come out ahead. Amusingly, this is refered to as beginers luck!

As for the “experienced” players, they quite easily fit into Einstein’s definition of insanity, which states:

“Insanity = doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

And the look of frustration and anger on thier faces as they blame the dealer and the new player at the table is a good indication that this is a true description. Loosing is never the gambler’s fault, just as alcoholics and smokers could quit… if they thought they had a problem, and if they wanted to!

But the actual “odds” at wining at blackjack are all over the spectrem of opinion and hope. And the word winning must also be defined here. The odds at “winning” one hand are different than winning five hands, which are different than winning ten. The average player plays tens or hundreds of hands in a single trip, and thousands of hands in his lifetime. So winning on one gambling trip doesn’t mean that person is ahead on their life totals. But I guarentee that the last remodel or expansion on your favorite casino was instituted with part of yours and others total losses!

According to Ion Saliu’s Paradox: random generation does not generate all possible combination’s, as the odds that a hand will repeat before all possible hands are dealt are a sure thing. So, to consider the odds, random generation is not an accurate source. If there are 334,490,044 total possible complete hands in blackjack, and we randomly generate 334,490,044 hands, the statistics show that approximately 63% will be unique and 37% will be repeats. (http://saliu.com/blackjack.html)

And the point is… if you can show me a person (besides Rain Man) who can sit down and play that many hands, with no outside influences, with no burned cards, with no change of dealers or bathroom breaks, with no dealer mistakes, and with no sleep… then I will except the odds you come up with.

In other words, whenever you hear someone quote the odds and tell you the right way to play blackjack, they are talking out of their butt – which is where you should tell them to stick their advice! Likewise, if you take advice from a stock broker (who makes money from your wins and your losses regardless) or from the government (who’s investment owned corporations are on the other side of your trade, and who wins your losses) you are a fool, and are playing into the trap of legalized embezzlement through stock market gambling.

In much the same way that you have no way of knowing which card will come out of the blackjack deck next (52 cards means about a 1:52 chance of guessing, or 1:13 on its numerical value), you have no way of knowing what planned or seemingly random events will come out of the world economy that will effect the price index and value of your stock investment. And you have no way of knowing the plans of the elitist money changers (bankers) who control these events and can crash the market at any time through planned events like 9/11 – when unprecidented short positions were put on airline stocks just days before the event (which destroyed the values of airline stocks). The very fact that shorts, derivatives, and other hedges and gambling bets are allowed to be made on stocks should be a huge red flag for who controls and influences the markets.

A “short” is simply placing a bet that a stock will, in a certain amount of time, go down in value. Who in their right mind would want to make a bet like this, without some inside information to support the bet? I see this as no different than being best friends with Don King, and taking his advice on which boxer to bet on as a K.O. in the third round!

So why would you, as a simple working man or woman with none of this foreknowledge, gamble on these things called stocks? Probably the same reason that despite the fact that the odds are totally against you, you willingly and hopefully lay your money down in that little circle on the blackjack table, so that a dealer like I used to be can snatch it up with a look of false surprise, disappointment, empathy and remorse.

The last aspect of this conundrum is this: while you may set your loss limit at $1000 for your gambling trip, the casino has no such limits. It has more money in its coffers than most local banks have in their vaults. Actually, casinos are banks… complete with their own vaults, the highest of high-tec security, and armed guards that collect the money from each table’s drop-box two or three times a day. They even make loans, called markers, to high profile club members whose financial information is on account with the casino. And you must understand that with an unlimited money supply and the odds completely in their favor, the casino is always going to win.

Likewise the government, with it’s unlimited amounts of money – hidden in these investments – has no limit to what it can accomplish to ensure that the odds are in its favor, and that you are distracted through entertainment, and unenlightened by purposefully creating one of the worst education systems in the world. Remember, they can create money anytime they want to. You cannot. The odds are that eventually you will lose enough of your wealth by gambling it in their fixed system (the casino-like stock market) to eliminate any threat you might impose by your insignifigant wealth.

Oh, you’re a millionaire, you say? Well the government has many multiple trillions. A trillion is a million-million. So the government is a millionaire of a whole differant sort. Get over yourself, and fast!

And for the final nail in the coffin…?

If you do somehow get ahead and make a scene, the casino (government) can send in the cleaner – the dealer who can stack the deck and deal from the bottom of it. In other words, the odds we have talked about in this essay are not real, for they are manipulatable just like everything else. And they will never be manipulated in your favor unless you are being set up for a big loss later.

The moral of this story is simply this: invest your money in your home, in your family, and in your community. Charity is now a lost concept, and the thought of giving freely without anything in return has been killed by corporate greed and usury. Imagine if you will, actually giving instead of investing, without a tax write-off or of any expectations of repayment with gains or interest. Imagine building a church, a school, or a public meeting house without gaining anything but the admiration and love of the people around you, and in seeing the benefit it gives to them, and in turn to you. Imagine buying land and putting it into a trust that ensures that it will be in the peoples control and use, and never usurped by government and its corporate interests, and for the next thousand years seeing that community come together and use that land for a community garden to feed everyone in the area.

Reinvestment into the people and communities is the only way to fix what damage has been done to our once great country.

And seperation of the community churches and real charities from corporate interests, ownership, and control is a necesary step in this process.

The power is in the people, despite where the money lies. But only if we use our power and declare this corporation we call our government unlawful, unconstitutional, and downright evil.

And, in one last plea for sanity, if I may be so bold… The only solution I have seen brought forward by any of us to change the country and the world in a complete and lawful way is through Walter Burien’s “Tax Retirement Fund” (TRF). We can talk and anylize and discuss till we are blue in the face, but until this mans efforts are supported, and until Mr. Burien gets some charity of his own by true patriots who stop reveling in the usury and gambling in the corrupt and hopeless markets and banking and profitting from these thieves in government, instead of giving freely and annonomysly, without expectation or financial attachment to men like Walter Burien, our world will just go deeper and deeper into this endless spiral of depression and pestulence through corporate government’s takeover of the world markets and of our very lives.

The Biggest Game In Town: Walter Burien And Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports


***NOTE*** I have now released a documentary about this subject, which goes into specific detail regarding this article and the corporate structure of the United States. You may view it for free at: http://thecorporationnation.com/

 

—————————————————-

 

I’d like to share with you what happened to Walter Burien on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 as he spoke with George Noory live on Coast-To-Coast radio, the 5th largest syndicated radio show in America. This interview only happened after years of goading and begging from other guests and callers to have Walter as a guest.

Mr. Burien was scheduled to be on this show for a three-hour interview, an almost unheard of time slot reserved for only the most special of guests. Keeping in mind that the subject matter of this interview – government wealth, corruption, and the proof of this subject through the analyzing of our governments Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR’s) – has never been allowed to be mentioned on or in any corporate or mainstream outlet. You can then perhaps understand what happened next.

On Tuesday and Wednesday (the day of the show) Mr. Burien was the only scheduled guest for the show, and Walter was prepared for a three-hour talk. As the interview went on for two solid hours and as the secretive criminal beans were being spilt in a major way, a sudden click happened in the middle of Mr. Noory talking, and Walter’s line went dead. The show suddenly had a new guest to fill the remaining hour. It was then placed onto the Coast-To-Coast website that a second guest was now to appear.

Mr. Burien tried to reconnect, but was told he was only scheduled for two hours. He waited to be called back, but never was. No explanation. No apology. And no personal note from Mr. Noory…

Just silence…

Unfortunately, Walter Burien was saving the best and most hard-hitting information for last. He didn’t get to mention many aspects of what I consider the most important information available on what some may call the real order of things. And he didn’t have the chance to tell George’s listeners about his new documentary that will be released in just about one more day.

A fresh new “The Biggest Game In Town” will be available on the web for viewing on or around the 10th of January, 2010. I would encourage everyone reading this to view the documentary and support Mr. Burien in any way you can. For, of all the thousands of men and woman out there fighting against and trying to expose the greed and corruption of our governmental system and its monetary theft of the American people, Walter is the only one who actually has a solution instead of just another perspective on the problem: a peaceful, logical, economically viable, and extremely achievable grass-roots solution – but only with our help.

Let’s face it. You know you’re on to something important, big, and secretive when you get cut off of a radio show an hour before your time is up with no explanation.

Please visit Mr. Burien’s CAFR1 website at (http://CAFR1.com) and learn what this man has to tell you. He has opened my eyes in a way that would have taken twenty years of hard studying and the constant scrutinizing and analyzing of these and other documents to even begin to comprehend this information. And now that I know, I feel it is my civic and moral duty to share it with you…

–Ω–

 

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an un-pitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.– Edmund Burke — From his essay: ‘Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents’…


…and Often mis-quoted as the following:

All that’s necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing.

 

The hottest fires in hell are reserved for those who remain neutral in times of moral crisis– Edmond Burke – again, with some dispute on the actual original quote.


–Ω–

I’d like now to share with you what I’ve learned from Walter Burien. This is not an easy subject to digest; in fact it hurts a bit when you realize that it is all painfully true… and fortunately, unlike most other truths in the world, quite easily verifiable. And so I would ask that you finish this essay in its entirety and click on all of the links associated with it. For if ever there was a red pill, this is it!

“Remember, all I am offering is the truth, nothing more…”

And down the rabbit hole we go…

Let’s start with how the government works, or more specifically, how it is set up. Each town, city, county and state has an individual government with individual budgets and finance books. City councils who sit in fancy pillared or droll state buildings usually govern those many individual governments. Also, there are local government bodies, such as school districts and municipalities like gas, electric, water and sewage, bridges and roadways, and so on who are individually governed bodies as well. And then there are other forms of special government wealth, like pension funds. On a larger scale, there is the federal government, the judicial and congressional governments, and so on down the line.

Together, these many individual governments are going to be referred to herein as “collective government”.

Just as ethnic groups in this country are considered minority populations with insignificant political and decision making power when compared to the Caucasian or “white” ethnic group, these individual governments are, when compared to the collective power of all of these governments joined together, insignificant.

The power of these individual ethnic groups can only be realized if they ban together to become the majority. Likewise, the thousands of individual governments in the United States are extremely powerful and wealthy when manifested as one “collective” governmental body – collective government.

Bearing this in mind, I will now reveal the man behind the curtain, so to speak…

Through collective government investments from all individual governments across the United States, the government owns most of the major corporations in America, and beyond.

I’ll say it again, in a different way. Collectively, through investment, the United States government owns most major corporations and just about everything else in America.

Please read on…

Of the Fortune 500 companies we hear about, and even invest in ourselves with our cute little peanuts we think of as personal wealth, the government has over the last 70 years or so taken financial controlling interest in all of these corporations. This is no exaggeration. This is no joke. This is the reality of the corporate and financial state of our country and it’s government.

So how has it gotten to this point?

In several ways…

Have you ever noticed that when a bond or proposition gets passed in your state for a construction or land management project, the actual project itself sometimes isn’t scheduled to begin until months or years in the future? It’s even written in most bills that the project wont start until a far off set future date.

Well… the money for that proposition or bill is immediately released upon passage of the legislation. Now you might ask yourself, if the money is there why doesn’t the project begin immediately?

Here is the answer…

That “taxpayer money” gets sent directly into what we’ll call a government “holding account” for a while, sometimes years and years before that public project actually begins.

Now, that money doesn’t just sit there… It is invested. It gains interest. It builds up extreme wealth – months or years of interest and capital gains on investments from that originally taxpayer funded money. This is all transpired digitally, of course.

But when it comes time to use that original amount of money for the project of which it was intended months or years later, the capital gains (profits) of that supposedly dormant money are separated from the original amount placed into the “holding account” and stay in the governments discretionary investment coffers and are then reinvested not for the benefit of the people, but for the wealth and profit of the corporate government. The problem and the inherent crime here is this – that profit is no longer considered tax-payer (public) owned money, since it was earned by investment or by accrued interest. That “extra money” goes elsewhere… mainly into other investments or funds which grease the pockets of the “in the know” politicians and corporations and other people and groups involved. Some open what are called “self insurance funds” and then draw dividends for themselves and their fellow conspirators for the rest of their political careers by insuring themselves with their own insurance funds. And the cycle goes on and on and on and on… and has for the last 70 years. And it has now reached the point where government owns it all!

How do I know this to be true?

When the yearly budget comes out for your town, city, district, county, state, and the whole country – the one that you and I and Joe Taxpayer sees that is usually in a deficit (in the red) – the money made on these individual government investments is not shown, because it is not in the “taxpayer budget” any longer. Therefore, it does not technically have to be accounted for to the taxpayers – who we can define as everyone who pays any form of taxes, which is by default everyone in the United States. There are of course, 100’s of different taxes – from gas tax to sales tax – that are used in this way as well. The money from all of these individual taxes once again just sits there and accumulates after being collected until it is distributed, and gains interest or is invested until it is spent for the purposes it was collected (apportioned).

On a side note: the reason so many people are against the Federal Income Tax is because that tax was never made legal. In order to be a legal tax according to the Constitution, the tax assessed must be apportioned – which means that it must be collected with the specific intent to only be used to pay for or fund a specific public works or public fund that is clearly defined. Since the Federal Income Tax is un-apportioned and therefore Constitutionally illegal, the money that is collected for that tax is used by the Federal Government to pay the interest only on the national debt. In other words, instead of printing its own money with no debt owed to anyone, our corporate government instead borrows money from the Federal Reserve Bank at interest – meaning there is never enough money printed to pay off that debt because it accrues interest the second it is printed, meaning it is devalued the second it is created.

Example: If America has one hundred dollars in circulation – meaning money printed on paper and being used as “legal tender” – that means that the treasury (government) borrowed that $100 from the Federal Reserve (a private bank), which means that in order to pay that money back, the treasury (government) must pay that $100 dollars back plus how ever much interest is attached to that $100 by the Federal Reserve Bank (a non-governmental private central bank).

So where do we get the extra printed money to pay back that money owed for the interest on the original $100 loan?

Well, since there is no money left after paying back the principle balance of $100, the only way to pay the interest owed to the Federal Reserve (private central bank) is for the Treasury (the corporate government) to borrow more money from the Federal Reserve (a corporate private bank) so that the accumulated interest owed on the first $100 can be paid back. The problem is, this new money borrowed has new interest attached, and this interest debt must eventually be paid back as well, meaning we must then borrow more money from the Fed at interest to pay the total principle balance plus the previous interest accrued on all of the previous money borrowed, and so on and so forth.

This, my friends, is what is commonly called a paradox.

In short, there is no way to ever pay off our debt to the Federal Reserve (a privately owned international bank), because there is never enough money printed to pay off the principle and the interest balances. Therefore, this system of borrowing money at interest will continue to the point that the interest owed can never be paid as it is more than the principle balance, making this the biggest scam (Ponzi scheme) ever perpetuated onto the American people in their history. Now imagine the same scenario with many trillions of dollars borrowed and re-borrowed and so on and so forth.

If you can’t picture what a trillion dollars looks like, just think of it this way… If I had 11 trillion one-dollar bills and I stacked them on top of each other in one single pile, that pile would reach all the way to the moon… and back to Earth.

Knowing then, that the Federal Reserve is a privately owned group of national and international banks and bankers, who have no actual binding ties or connections to the United States Government – and in fact control the decision and monetary policy of the United States economy, and therefore its financial and economic welfare, through the manipulation of monetary value, currency circulation, and interest rate regulation – the fact that all of our Federal Income Tax goes directly to this private corporate banking monster who controls this country through its system of tyrannical banking debt and interest, of which we are all collectively as taxpayers responsible for paying, is why there is such an uproar in the awakened minority citizenry of America. This is really just extortion. And the Feds recent threats to cause the stock market to drop 1,000 points a day until the banker bailouts were signed by congress only goes to prove that point. More and more people are learning the truth, and realizing that through this system of perpetual debt, we are not a free people but rather indentured servants to this banking conglomerate for generations to come. You’re so-called duty to pay your Federal Income Tax is non-existent, and the mindset that most people have been brainwashed into is that there is some form of honor in paying this tax, which again goes to absolutely nothing but interest owed to these central banks who are not the government. No public services are paid for with this money; money that should have been printed by our Congress as expressed in the Constitution, with no interest (debt) attached to it.

So where does the extra government corporate investment money go, and what proof is there of its existence?

The only way to see where this money goes is by looking at the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for each local, city, state, and any other government office. The Federal Reserve even has one of these! You want to see an audit of the Federal Reserve? Just look at the Federal Reserve’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and go from there.

This “complete” budget and statement of earnings is required for all governments and corporate businesses, and it is available in the public domain… meaning it is very easy to acquire by the average Joe Citizen. A simple public records search or an Internet search will reveal this report for most individual governments and corporations. And if it doesn’t, they are in violation of their own codes on public disclosure.

The problem is, nobody knows its there. Nobody knows to put the pieces together. Nobody understands that there are literally 100′s of trillions of “collective” investments and funds that have been acquired by these individual governments that have been hidden in plain sight for decades, by separating the total governments wealth into individual and seemingly insignificant government funds and investments across the country. When considered collectively, these massive investment funds would pay off all debt in this country, and if worked correctly could eliminate all taxes through public-taxpayer instead of private-non-taxpayer investment of the same sort. This is what Walter Burien and CAFR1 are trying to achieve. This is the solution I mentioned earlier. His Tax Retirement Funds (TRF’s) are this country’s saving grace. Learn more about them here: (http://taxretirement.com/)

This is what I refer to as poking the scorpions’ nest!

Now, to understand how these facts regarding governments complete corporate takeover and management of America, let’s look at current events. Very recently a merger with media conglomerates NBC and Comcast was announced. These are definitely fortune 500 worthy companies. They are therefore already collectively controlled through collective government investments. And they will never let this information (CAFR’s and collective government investments) get out into the public through this government controlled media. Why? Because these media companies are collectively owned through collective government investment!

Comcast and NBC/Disney are two of the largest media conglomerates in the world. One creates and broadcasts the media – the other controls the equipment and digital airwaves to turn these broadcasts into the degrading entertainment and propaganda we see in our homes and at movie theatres, that we hear on the radio, and that we read in magazines, newspapers and digitally on our computers. Most people wont think anything of this merger and others like it that are constantly happening on a smaller scale; perhaps second-handedly recalling from an outdated textbook, the chapter on monopolies and anti-trust laws. Thinking about such things has, through the same media we are talking about here, been trumped by the reality show, celebrity lifestyles and deaths, “news entertainment” shows, and indoctrinating and manipulative sitcoms and movies – which have dumbed us down to the extent of actually believing that what happens on “Law and Order” is the reality of what actually happens in the law enforcement and criminal justice system. I assure you, this is not the case. Hospital shows are not accurate portrayals of how hospitals are actually run, and are not representative of the real state of the healthcare system. Police and detective shows are so far removed from reality that I laugh out loud at the ridiculous portrayal of “the system”.

The real conundrum of this situation is this: the merging of these two media companies, considering the controlled stock holdings of our collective government in these and most media companies, is in actuality being mandated (authorized) by the government itself as the majority stockholder. So protesting to the government about this merger is akin to asking a king to mediate his own decision regarding the merging of his own two kingdoms. Do you understand?

Corporations are the government are the corporations are the government…

Another way of looking at this conundrum is this:

When a major corporation donates money to a political campaign (remember almost all major corporations are government owned through collective investments), this is actually a loophole around campaign finance laws, as this is really just the government donating money to its own candidate or party through its collective-investment-owned “private” corporations. This is hard to swallow, but true as the nose on your face! For it was the banks who received the recent bailouts that were the largest campaign contributors to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign – in a big way. When you hear that all of these elites sit on each other’s boards of directors, that’s only a half-truth.

And sure, you can continue to vote if it makes you feel better. But rest assured you are voting for the two or three candidates that were chosen and hyped by the corporate government that is already in place, through the controlled media (that again is owned through collective government investment). Real “alternative” or “third party” candidates who campaign on truly changing “the system” for the benefit of the people will never be allowed to attain high office – the recent corporate mandate of electronic and completely hack-able and changeable voting machines in most states and the expulsion of paper ballots leaving no paper trail through no-bid government contract see’s to that fact.

It is not the votes that count, but who counts the votes.– Josef Stalin –

Our congressmen, our senators, and our president are literally automaton puppets, actors placed into power through fixed elections and then skillfully manipulated to pass laws and create legislature that helps in this whole process of land acquisition, the corporate takeover of all infrastructure and commercial real estate, and the deregulation and privatization of all regulated industries, including: banking, airlines, food, water, transportation, prisons, media, medical, and many others.

For instance, (over 1%) or 1 out of every 100 Americans are in prison. That’s 3 million plus people! That’s more than any other country in the world, including Korea and Communist China. Many prisons are now built or owned by private companies like Halliburton, since this industry was deregulated and private corporations are now allowed to build and maintain prisons. It’s big business… and cheap forced labor. And the government owns these corporations as well, through collective investment.

So let’s talk about a few of these industries that are owned by our government.

My favorite example of the collective government ownership of these corporations is Microsoft. This will really hit home with most of you. Though collective government investments, Microsoft Corporation is approximately 83% owned by government. Take the investments of the five burrows of New York City, add in the pension funds of CALPERS in California (which is now an offshore corporate fund) and other state funds, a few school districts here and there, and many other small, medium and large individual governments and municipalities across the nation, combine them together, and you come up with the representative governmental investment total of around 83% majority ownership. The easy way to say this is that the government owns 83% of Microsoft.

“Collective government” is a very important phrase to comprehend.

For those of you who don’t comprehend the severity of this situation, let me explain…

Let’s imagine for a moment a board meeting at the Microsoft Corporation. I wonder who would be there? I don’t know exactly, but I’d bet at least 83% in attendance would most likely be corporate government representatives! The Defense Department would surely be there, for national security reasons of course. CIA? Probably, since they use the Internet to catch criminals and since they have so much power now to spy on us thanks to bills like The Patriot Act. How about Homeland Security? The military, and all of its branches? Raytheon, and other weapons contractors would probably be there too. I wonder who would represent the Federal Government? How about the Federal Reserve (a non-government agency) and the IRS (the Federal Reserves non-governmental private police and collection force for the central banks)? Heck, even Bill Gates would be there, but he would probably only have about as much power as the President of the United States has over his corporation, which is thankfully still called America. Yes, in case you were wondering, the United States is a corporation. Look it up! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVsMUpPgdT0) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klwWcp9eiPw&feature=related)

Ah, Microsoft…

You see, everything we do in life is now done or available on the Internet in the World Wide Web. Whether you are plugged in or not, your information is available for download. And Microsoft is how we access that virtual world (through Windows and it’s sub-programs like Internet Explorer). When we enter all of our passwords, PIN’s, account numbers, our mother’s maiden names… and then we voluntarily record all of our most closely guarded secrets and personal information onto websites like MySpace (which is now owned by Rupert Murdoch’s “Fox” News Corporation, which is a mainstream media company, which again means it’s owned collectively by government) (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4697671.stm) Microsoft collects all of that information though its software and sends it back to itself and its servers and anyone else who pays for the sharing of that information.

This is called data mining. And the government (Microsoft) is data mining all of our most closely held secrets and information, and it is doing so with our permission. You gave that permission with the simple click of a mouse in that service agreement (the one with all of the small print) that you signed but did not read when you were so exited about getting that new P.C. last Christmas. This agreement – the “End User Lease Agreement” (E.U.L.A.) gives Microsoft (the government) complete control over the content, applications, and information sharing capabilities of your computer.

Web-Based Environment Management (W.B.E.M.) allows Microsoft and other companies and corporations to virtually control and monitor your computer from remote locations through the internet.

The (M.R.U.) Most Recently Used list is an individual usage list, of which there can be many MRU’s running at one time. They record every action you or your computer makes; every thing you download and everything you say. Some of the more advanced applications even record every keystroke made on your keyboard so that it can be reconstructed later. When you hear someone say, ‘My computer is acting so slow’, this is mainly because these M.R.U’s that are currently running beyond your control or knowledge are constantly updating Microsoft and anyone else who’s listening in the background.

In Windows XP (and other versions) – if you click on your Start Button, go to Settings, click Control Panel, then click Administrative Tools, and finally click on Services… you can view some of Microsoft’s so-called “services” that are controlling your computer and your life. Here are a couple examples of these services:

Routing and Remote Access – “Offers routing services to businesses in local area and wide area network environments.” – Sounds harmless, right? But when enabled, this allows corporate advertisers to localize their advertisements to your specific IP (Internet Protocol) location: the geographical area in which your Internet connection is based. This is why you see adds from lonely housewives in your town looking for love and other localized advertisements that amaze you every time you get online. How’d they do that? Well now you know. There is a lot of money involved in this type of information sharing and advertising, as you can imagine. And if you click on one of those localized advertisements, the fact that you did so means more advertisers will be knocking down your virtual door to personalize their own advertisements to you according to what sites you visit and which products you shop for and buy online. This “service” can be disabled, but Microsoft will probably enable it the next time you go online. After all, you gave it permission to do so.

Remote Registry – “Enables remote users to modify registry settings on this computer. If this service is stopped, the registry can be modified only by users on this computer. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.” – The “Registry” on your computer is the program that manages your P.C. It’s like an index or blueprint of all your programs, which tells your computer’s programs and applications what they are allowed and not allowed to do when your computer is turned on. This means that if your ‘remote registry’ is enabled, any Microsoft program can change or alter your registry at any time, because you agreed to this in your E.U.L.A. You effectively gave Microsoft the right to crash your hard-drive beyond repair from a remote location when they don’t like what you are doing. Sucks, don’t it?

Oh… and for those of you who say, “Whew, glad I’m on a Mac!” guess again. Apple is a major corporation with major media outlets and influence on the economy and the citizenry… you bet they are owned by the government through collective government investments! And yes, I get adds from Lonely housewives near me on my Mac as well. And I’m writing this on Microsoft Word for Mac! Oh, the irony…

Now maybe you can understand why government control of such intricately personal aspects of our lives through corporations like Microsoft is such a concern. If a local company is advertising to you through Microsoft’s “services”, you can bet your arse that the government is using these and their own services for much more devious purposes.

So what’s the bottom line? You have absolutely no privacy in anything you do on your computer once you go online! Period.

This type of symbiotic corporate/government structure is prevalent in all industries and walks of like, not just computers. The same conglomerations often own the alternatives to anything you buy. For instance, while we think we are being somehow different or cool by listening to an “alternative music” station, we are just being manipulated by some very clever marketing. You see, the same corporation that owns that “Alternative” station also owns most of the other stations that your chosen favorite alternative station competes against, as well as the record company that produced it. It even puts down on-air those other stations it owns because that will make some listeners chose to listen to this particular media corporations’ other channels or stations. When we hear a song on a mainstream yet “alternative” radio station (remember all mainstream media is collectively owned by government, and mainstream is 99% of the media that you can effortlessly receive though the corporate governments F.C.C. airwaves), we are told who sings it, and then we go buy the album at one of the many conglomerate department stores or seemingly local chain stores (with corporately owned central hubs), all the while thinking we are being somehow unique from the rest of the crowd. This is marketing. And you and I are continuously falling victim to it and the distraction it causes. The media keeps us “masterfully entertained”, as Walter likes to say.

Then we go drive our alternative yet still equally gas and oil dependant hybrid cars, of which everyone else is also marketed to about their unique and conservation oriented styles, even though the creation and disposal of their batteries is secretly worse on the environment than ten years of the exhaust created from driving an SUV. And the battery must be replaced after five or six years! And so we drive… feeling better somehow about our insignificant pollution as we sip on one of 30 unique plastic bottled water brands marketed as environmentally friendly and recyclable, which it so happens are all owned by 4 major conglomerate corporations which are owned through collective investments by our government.

Should I choose Perrier… or its competitor, San Pellegrino? Well take your pick, for they are both owned and bottled by the Nestle’ Corporation (a government controlled entity).

Oh, well then I’ll switch to Calistoga. Oh wait, that’s Nestle’ too!

Well… who needs bubbles anyway?

Flat water… Hmmm. Let me see…

How about Arrowhead? What? That’s Nestle’ as well?

What about Crystal Geyser? Poland Spring? Zephyr Hills?

Sorry… all owned by Nestle’ along with at least 10 other alternative water brands that they purposefully market and compete against each other in their advertising and at different prices in order to appeal to at least one of the typical personality types of which billions of dollars were spent to figure out, and that we all unwittingly fit into.

You might as well just drink Nestle’ brand bottled water – the only honestly labeled brand out there, since it’s cheaper and comes from the same polluted tap water source! (https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2009/09/28/the-california-water-museum-featuring-the-fluoride-deception/)

And, in case you missed it, the automobile industry in America was just taken over by the government. Any time the government “bails out” or gives large life-saving amounts of money to a corporation or all corporations in a certain industry… that spells takeover and control. It’s part of the “bailout” package. When the newly inducted corporations pay back that money at a later date, this is nothing more than the corporate government covering its tracks and completing the business transaction for the publics benefit and for media stories about the success of the bailouts.

So, how deep does this go?

Unfortunately, it is a bottomless pit.

While I have deep respect and admiration for local churches of any faith that do good in their communities and help the people there, I have some rather disappointing news about the religions that these churches belong to.

Since moving to Salt Lake City, I have been inundated by the Mormon doctrine. The Mormon’s essentially run the state of Utah’s government. Some places will not hire you unless you are a Mormon. Similar to Free-Masonry, of which the church’s founders were high members, the church helps those who help it… while shunning or “excommunicating” anyone who disagrees with its doctrines. Ironically, usually these are the people who need the church’s council, love and support the most.

I always wondered why the Mormon church was able to retain it’s non-profit status, since it has its hands in so many political campaigns and in the state of Utah’s government, and since it funds huge political campaigns like the recent California “vote yes on prop 8″ campaign and so many other human and civil rights issues. It’s actually a common question: How does a not-for-profit entity (church) give money for political aspirations and campaigns and influence an entire state or countries opinions in local and state elections, and still retain their non-profit status?

How indeed… Separation of church and state, right?

Wrong.

The Mormon Church (The Mormons) is actually a for-profit major corporation. It has mass wealth through these same types of investments. It is extremely, extremely wealthy.

But the corporate Mormon Church has a non-profit sub-division in which it does all of the charity work and altruistic not-for-profit Godly things that it does. This division is called “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”. And they are commonly referred to as “The Mormons” which is actually a falsity since the Mormons are just another big corporation with mass control over vast world populations and local governments. And each church whether aware of this corporate structure or not, pays the corporation though the money collected from its parishioners.

To it’s credit, and compared to the government corporations, the Mormons actually do some very good things. Their welfare system is top notch and has been copied by other countries and our own government welfare system is based upon it. But it is the volunteers that make this happen, not the corporation. They are not symbiotic by necessity, only in their corporate structure. It is the people who have the power to make the world better. One must always remember that.

What makes me most concerned about this corporate structure of churches and why I mention it at all is this: the president of the Mormon Church (which is the president of the corporation that is the Mormon Church) has been known to have one-on-one, secretive (non-public) meetings with the President of the United States behind closed doors in the Oval Office. Shortly after one of these meetings, the noted Professor Steven Jones was fired from Brigham Young University. I can only assume that this was for his exposing the fact that uniquely military-grade Thermate demolition explosives were found in the World Trade Center dust, which is impossible without it have been used to implode those buildings. This is a power that should not be had by any member of any church, whether this particular event was coincidental or not.

The Catholic Church is set up in the same way: The Vatican is a country. A corporation. It has its own police force. And the Pope… who may or may not have the real power in that corporate pyramid, also meets with our president behind closed doors and influences even more people in our country and across the world.

And, come to think of it, I’m pretty sure that all churches, from the Methodists – the church that I grew up in – to the Jewish faiths, are also built like this, corporately speaking. Why else would churches have general conferences, which are really just giant budget meetings?

Anyway, this is why the Mormons, The Catholics, and all the other religions are free to be involved in politics and government as much as they like… because they are for profit corporations, who mask themselves through their not-for-profit fronts (i.e. religion) where they unfortunately manipulate the opinions, voting habits, and lifestyles of the members of their sub-corporate houses of worship.

As for the government’s involvement or investment into these holy corporations, I have not researched this yet. But obviously the political influence is there, and that should raise any honest and righteous mans brow.

Again, my respect for local non-profit churches is immense. But isn’t it time for them to become aware of these facts and separate themselves from these for-profit corporations that bind them and influence their moral character? Isn’t it time that the community church becomes the truly free and spiritual houses of God that they portray themselves to be?

Corporate service to God is a truly strange and unholy concept.

So who knows about this?

How does a magician pull off a seemingly impossible magic trick right before your eyes?

By using the oldest trick in the book… distraction.

As his left hand moves around gracefully, drawing your attention away from the right hand, or as his assistant dressed in scantily clad glittery lingerie takes your eyes off of the magician himself, the right hand is busy doing the bait and switch – or the “trick” – right in front of your face.

This is magic defined… illusion and subterfuge. Nothing more.

So to is the subject of CAFR’s. Take away the distraction of the TV media, sex, drugs, sports and gambling… and the magic trick is revealed. It cannot be hidden any longer once the left hand sees what the right hand is doing. It just takes someone like me to uncover the trick and expose the truth.

But one man cannot do it alone. Many are needed.

So, the point of all of this is really quite simple. The only way to fight this is to expose the facts that I’ve just written here. You will not stop the government from merging two companies that it has controlling monetary interest in by crying and sending strong worded emails, making phone calls, or holding up signs referring to anti-trust laws and how unfair this is to us little guys. Things are way past the point of protesting. The country has for the most part been sold off to private corporations and public-private partnerships (PPP) … a bridge there, a road here, a few million acres there.

Learn about the atrocity of Public-Private Partnerships and their detriment to our country, which is intricately ingrained in this corporate takeover of America, here: (http://www.infowars.com/agenda-21-alert-public-private-partnerships/)

If you watched that video, you now understand the danger and ultimate corruption of these PPP’s. And to bring this danger home, I’d like to offer the most severe of possibilities with regards to how these Public-Private-Partnerships could easily be abused by our corporate government.

Consider the following:

Say the government decides that it cannot pay the budget for our military anymore as it continues to hide the CAFR from the publics’ comprehension. It announces publically that it will now join forces in a great new public-private-partnership (PPP) with several foundations (like the Rockefeller Foundation) and a few Weapons contracting companies (like Raytheon) so that our soldiers can get the pay they deserve and the equipment they need. This is the public relations announcement. It sounds like the good old corporate world is lending a helping hand in a time of need…

But the real translation would be this: The United States Government is transferring ownership of the military from the publics government ownership to a private corporate ownership, through corporations and foundations which it already owns through its collective investments. Therefore, the military will now be a privately owned military – a private army – controlled by government, but whose weapons and arms contracts are secured for the next 1000 years at no-bid pricing through these government owned corporations. This makes it a lot easier to break every single law ever written with regards to war crimes and Constitutional restrictions of such things. If everything is private, the people will own nothing. And the Geneva Conventions do not apply.

Again, this is the most extreme of examples, but one which is not at all out of the realm of possibility. After all, isn’t the United Nations already calling the shots with our military?

This must be taken very seriously, for the country that we have always considered and taken for granted as being free, is no longer free. It is owned almost outright by government investment.

In fact, I just found out that collectively through investments, public-private partnerships, and other devious means, the government of the United States (local, city, county, state, and federal) collectively owns about 87% of all land in the United States, leaving 13% to the actual people (citizens) for private ownership… and I’m not sure yet if that includes non-government owned or private corporate ownership in that 13%.

A corporation for a government is not the American way!

As several homes and the land they are built upon around where I live are being stolen by the government in the name of eminent domain, I cringe at the thought of the selfish and evil corporate government person or group that gave those orders. For surely they have land and a home as well. The land sits for a couple of years, and once everyone in the area begins or is paid to forget about the now vacant eminent domain government owned land, suddenly a new corporate structure will be built there. This means that the land is still government owned, and that through their corporate network, the government allowed the land to be transferred to one of its sister operations. Money, being nothing but fiat (worthless) paper backed by nothing, is just a tool used in the transaction, and it eventually is filtered back into the collective government corporate coffers. And that land will never be public-owned again.

This has got to stop…

As far as commercial real estate, and the 10-20% average vacancy rates in most cities across the United States in strip malls and what are now being called ghost malls… Guess who owns or is buying that commercial space once it is in default. The government! Local governments already collectively own most large malls anyway through their investments, as well as gas stations, gyms, movie theatres… the list is endless.

Do you think the government as a corporation cares one ounce whether or not a mom-and-pop store closes its doors after 30 years in business? No. It either already owns the land and building that business is on, or is interested in buying it once the shops go out of business. Land ownership is the goal, not some meager monthly rent. Power comes with ownership.

–Ω–

Ok, I figure by now you are having one of two reactions. Either you think I’m nuts – the trained and ingrained reaction most will have when confronted with such overwhelming conspiracy and corruption – and you will not even take the time to do a simple search on CAFR’s to see that I’m telling the truth, or… this has had a major impact on your comprehension and perception of the way things really work, and you will keep this letter or email as a favor to me in the case of something happening to me like what has happened to others who have tried to expose this information. For this is the information that above all else must be exposed. As Walter Burien likes to say…

“The easiest way to steal money from someone is for them to never know they had it in the first place.”

Well, now you know. Our money has been stolen from under our noses for decades.

For those of you who constantly crusade for the truth about 9/11/2001 to be released, and for a new investigation to be initiated, I only have this to say… This will never happen under the current system of corporate government. Again, the king will not punish himself. 9/11 is a cause that is dear to my heart, since I watched the events of that day from my roof in New York City just a short distance away, and had the missing persons center right across from my front door. I will never forget that vision or that sound from that day. But again I must reiterate that while protesting and handing out literature and movies has been a great tool in waking up the people about 9/11, it is time to take a different path. All of our scattered groups must unite in one peaceful cause. That cause, in order to effect real change, should be the exposure of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports and collective ownership and investment wealth of our government. You see everything else will follow… Audits will be done at all levels of government, mandated by the people who vote for TRF’s. Information will flow freely from the private hands of corporate government back into the hands of the public. All truths will be necessarily exposed in this way – through mandated audits. And the impenetrable wall that is our corporate government will eventually fall back into the publics’ tax-free hands. And those responsible will be held accountable. But until this wealth and power is transferred back to the people, we as a bunch of minority advocacy groups will never accomplish anything… unless we unite into one cause and become the majority. For the system will never reveal itself. Nor will it punish itself. 9/11 will remain hidden in the same warehouse as JFK, Waco, and other cover-ups until this new information has been discussed and spread far and wide. War crimes will not be administered until CAFR’s and government wealth are exposed and the military is once again a public entity controlled by congress and the United States is taken out of the United Nations.

The last thing to keep in mind is this: What Alex Jones calls compartmentalization – meaning one hand doesn’t know what the other is doing – is actually the case with many of our financial planners and politicians who have unwittingly been a part of this in their careers. Most people involved in small government in low to mid-level positions do not understand how this all works and fits together. Banks, businesses, media, churches, government… they all have corporate pyramid structures with very few at the top understanding the bigger picture.

To put this into perspective, consider this: 100 different people, with 100 different skills, each individually making 100 different parts, can easily build a complete nuclear bomb. Yet if they are never told what it is that they are making as a whole – the end product – they have no understanding or comprehension of their complicity in the making of that deadly bomb.

And understand that greed, theft and corruption have become so commonplace in the government and regular workforce that it is hard to succeed without succumbing to these traits. So this is not a call for torches and pitchforks. That is not necessary, appealing as it may be to some. The whole thing can be reversed. The same people in power can be made to give back the wealth of our nation without bloodshed and hatred, and while continuing to reap huge rewards for their service to the public instead of the corporation. This perhaps, is the best reason to listen to Walter Burien – the man with the golden solution.

But do understand that everyone in higher politics does comprehend this information. It is their lifeblood. They’re true income and wealth is their discretionary multi-million dollar expense accounts, not their meager salaries. Unfortunately, that includes people who are our hero’s… like Ron Paul. He is a great man, well intentioned, but forced to be silent. For he would be excused, muffled, his family threatened, or worse if he were to talk about this information publicly. This is organized crime to the most extreme, so this would be like an inside boss tattling on the mafia. This would be political… and probably physical suicide for Ron Paul and other good men and women in government. So it’s up to the people to expose this information in a grass roots movement and information campaign, so that good men like these can finally step up, speak the truth, and be the patriotic men and women they are meant to be… and to help us to do what’s right.

So… I’m going to be on this full time if possible. I’m going to talk to as many people as I can, regardless of the consequences to our friendship, social, work, or family relationships. I would stand up as David to Goliath at the risk of life and limb to help change this and make Mr. Burien’s dream of eliminating all taxes, downsizing government, and taking back our government and our wealth from private to public ownership once again. This is too important not to talk about. And trust me when I say that if everyone doesn’t start talking about this, and quite soon, it will be too late for any reconciliation or reconstruction of our government to be able to take place. I expect an uphill battle. I expect my well being to be threatened. I expect to be ostracized by media and publishing companies at the expense of my humble dream of being an honest writer, journalist and novelist. I may never work in Hollywood as a professional again. But if I can see this to fruition and effectively change the world infinitely for the better good of mankind, all of this is by far worth any personal cost to myself. It is even worth my life. That’s how sure I am of the riotousness of this cause.

And so I ask you once again. Go to CAFR1.com (http://CAFR1.com) and read all that you can. Support Walter Burien financially if you are able, and by viewing his new documentary that will be online January 10th, 2010.

And get out there and start talking about this. Help change the world, one local venue at a time.

The clock is ticking…

Sincerely and in unity,

Clint Richardson

9/11 facts and questions I’ll bet you can’t answer without being called a conspiracy theorist!


 

 

There were at least 86 independent cameras (gas stations, grocery stores, etc…) at, around, and pointed at the Pentagon on 9/11. In fact, it is the most surveiled area in the United States. All of the footage from these cameras were taken by the government. Why would all film footage from all 86 cameras at and surrounding the Pentagon be confiscated and never released to the public? There is one thing that would easily end all speculation into 9/11 – the camera footage from those 86 cameras. If there were nothing to hide, why would the government keep this film footage (the ultimate indisputable proof) from us?

–Ω–

BBC reporter Jane Standley, as she stood in front of the erect Solomon Bros. Building (WTC7), reported live to BBC London that building 7 had fallen 20 minutes before this building actually fell. Streaming news on BBC reported this as well. News footage was then lost, or cut. WTC7 fell minutes later after multiple explosions were heard, after new owner Larry Silverstein admittedly ordered the demolition with the industry term “pull-it”, and after firefighters at the scene counted down to ’0′. If the collapse wasn’t expected, then why were there news announcements and a countdown? If the collapse was expected, how could demolition explosives be planted in a burning building in less than 8 hours? Why would they then cover this fact up?

–Ω–

George W. Bush lied in a town hall meeting when he said – verbatim:

I’d ah- was sitting outside ah- the- the classroom waitin’ to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower, of-er-a-of-a-T-ya know the TV was obviously on and I, I used to fly myself and I said, well there’s one terrible pilot, and ah- I said it must have been ah- horrible accident.

Bush was referring here to the day of 9/11, as he was about to go into a classroom to visit and read to children. The problem is, the video footage of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers wasn’t aired on broadcast TV until the next day, September 12th. So, the president could not have seen what he said he saw. As you might remember, Bush was told about the second plane inside the classroom, interrupting his classic “My Pet Goat” reading.

–Ω–

Osama Bin Laden has never been charged with any of the crimes of 9/11. On the FBI’s most wanted list, Bin Laden is wanted for other acts of terror, but not 9/11. He has never been indicted with any crime related to 9/11 in the 8 years since the so-called ‘attacks’. Why is this? Because there is apparently no concrete evidence relating Bin Laden to 9/11.

–Ω–

Osama Bin Laden has a history, as an asset for the C.I.A. His asset name is actually Tim Osman. In fact, Bin Laden was receiving kidney dialysis at a U.S. hospital in Dubai just prior to 9/11. Interestingly, Bin Laden stated on Al Jazeera Television on September 16, 2001 that he had no knowledge of the attacks. He also stated that the attacks of 9/11 appeared to be carried out by individuals with their own motivation. This interview was only aired once, and then never heard of again.

–Ω–

Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom, which provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center “up to the day the buildings fell down.” On the weekend of September 8-9, 2001, WTC tower 2 (the south tower) was powered down – meaning there was no electrical supply for 36 hrs from floor 50 and up… “Of course without power there were no security cameras, no security locks on doors, and many, many ‘engineers’ coming in and out of the tower.” Marvin Bush was in New York on 9/11.

–Ω–

Is ‘Al-Qaeda” a fitting name for a terrorist group? Well, the widely known definition of ‘Al Qaeda’ is translated in English as ‘The Base’. However, this is not the only translation of the ominous term. There is another. “Ana raicha Al Qaeda” is a colloquial for “I’m going to the toilet”. A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for ‘the toilet bowl’. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa’ada” which means “to sit” – pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the “Hamam Franji” or foreign toilet, and “Hamam Arabi” or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called “Ma Qa’adia” or “Little Qaeda”. And so, one must ask… Why would a terrorist group call itself ‘The Toilet’?

–Ω–

In September 2002, FBI Director Robert Mueller told CNN twice that there is “no legal proof to prove the identities of the suicidal hijackers.” Of these supposed Arab “terrorists” named by the U.S. government on 9/11 as the “hijackers”, the following were found to be alive after the events of 9/11: Waleed M. Alshehri, Wail M. Alshehri , Abdulaziz Alomari, Mohand Alshehri, Salem Alhazmi, Saeed Alghamdi, Ahmed Alnami. One must ask how this is possible?

Saeed Al-Ghamdi is one of three hijackers that US officials have said are linked to Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network.” – BBC

I was completely shocked. For the past 10 months I have been based in Tunis with 22 other pilots learning to fly an Airbus 320. The FBI provided no evidence of my presumed involvement in the attacks.- Saeed Al-Ghamdi, Telegraph 23rd September 2001

Abdel Aziz Al-Omari and Saeed Hussein Gharamallah Al-Ghamdi, are well in life, the first in Saudi Arabia and the second in Tunisia for nine months.” – Wal Fadjri: 21st September 2001

A Saudi man has reported to authorities that he is the real Abdul Aziz Al-Omari, and claims his passport was stolen in 1995 while he studied electrical engineering at the University of Denver. Al-Omari says he informed police of the theft.” – ABC News

I couldn’t believe it when the FBI put me on their list. They gave my name and my date of birth, but I am not a suicide bomber. I am here. I am alive. I have no idea how to fly a plane. I had nothing to do with this… The name (listed by the FBI) is my name and the birth date is the same as mine, but I am not the one who BOMBED the World Trade Center in New York.Abdul Aziz Al-Omari – Telegraph 23rd September 2001 and Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

Al-Omari has since been found in Saudi Arabia and is apparently cleared in the case” – New York Times

–Ω–

Which of these sounds more like a far-fetched conspiracy theory?

(1) A group of angry Muslims who lived in caves with no amenities came to America and took over 4 airplanes with razorblades and then drove these impossibly large planes with limited flight experience into the twin towers and the Pentagon like professional pilots. (Note several were found to be alive after 9/11.)

-Or-

(2) Bombs and demolition explosives were planted in the WTC towers 1,2, and 7 which brought them down at free fall speed into their own footprint: and a fairy tail-like cover-up story was delivered to the world that over 100 stories fell straight down into themselves, concrete and metal completely pulverized, defying all known architectural and natural physics.

–Ω–

The United States has not officially declared war since World War II. The media still fraudulently informs us that we are at war with Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan. But, instead we are at war with “terror”… an intangible, unfathomable, untouchable, and yet quite a politically useful thing, which has no country, no boundaries, no leader, no limits, no definition, and no rules. War crimes, torture, rendition, indefinite detention, human rights violations, and ordinarily criminal POW treatment are all un-punishable by the Geneva Conventions and Nuremburg Principles simply because we are not officially at war. 9-11 is the catalyst for this and for the legislation that protects these war criminals. 9-11 must be exposed as fraud (which would also expose the “war on terror” as a fraud) in order to charge those deserving with these crimes of war and the unprecedented use of torture. It would also be nice to know who blew up the twin towers, and see them hang!

–Ω–

PNAC (Project for the New American Century) was an American think tank based in Washington D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006. The PNAC’s stated goal was “…to promote American global leadership.” Its members included William Kristol, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John McCain, Paul Wolfowitz, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Richard Perle, Steve Forbes, Robert B. Zoellick, John R. Bolton, Thomas Donnelly, and many others. Section V of ‘Rebuilding America’s Defenses’, entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force”, includes the sentence: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor”. PNAC supported the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 (bill H.R.4655), which President Clinton had signed into law. In its “Preface”, in highlighted boxes, Rebuilding America’s Defenses states that it aims to: ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for the U.S. military:

• Defend the American homeland;
• Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
• Perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
• Transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs”…

–Ω–

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) was entrusted with the sole responsibility for investigating the collapse of the WTC complex immediately after 9/11. Strangely, FEMA is not an investigative agency. FEMA, in its so-called investigations, actually coordinated the destruction of all WTC debris and evidence almost immediately after 9/11. The structural steel was quickly removed and loaded on ships for transport to be melted in blast furnaces in India and China, and then dumped in the ocean. Most would see this as blatant destruction of pertinent evidence. Meanwhile, FEMA’s investigation of the collapses consisted of assembling a group of volunteer investigators from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), dubbed the Building Performance Assessment Team (BPAT). This group was headed by W. Gene Corley, a structural engineer from Chicago who also led the fraudulent investigation of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. (Incidentally, two other bombs reported by multiple news stations and eyewitnesses, which were found by the bomb squad in the Federal Building and defused, were then never heard about again.) Except for an early “tourist trip”, the BPAT assessment volunteers were barred from ever officially entering Ground Zero. They did not see a single piece of steel until almost a month after the disaster. They had to guess at the original building locations of the few pieces of steel they saw. They were only allowed to collect 150 specific pieces of steel for further study (out of millions of pieces). BPAT’s final report called for “further investigation and analysis”, but the report was not released until after the whole WTC site had been cleared, or “scrubbed” of evidence.

–Ω–

While FEMA allocated only $600,000 for the BPAT study, and didn’t allocate any funding for independent or non-biased investigations, NIST’s “Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation” was funded with an initial budget of $16 million. NIST’s results strongly indicate a cover-up. NIST avoids describing, let alone explaining, the “collapse” of each Tower after they were “poised for collapse.” Thus, NIST avoids answering the question their investigation was tasked with answering: how did the Towers collapse? NIST describes the Twin Towers without reference to the engineering history of other steel-framed buildings, and separates its analysis of WTC 7 into a separate report. By treating them in isolation, NIST hides just how completely different the alleged collapses of these three buildings are. In its own report, NIST reveals that it “adjusted the input” of variables in tests beyond the visual evidence of what actually happened in order to reinforce and save its own hypothesis. NIST also avoids disclosing the evidence of the unexplained sulfidation documented in Appendix C of the original FEMA “Building Performance Study”, which was described by the New York Times as “perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation.”

–Ω–

The actual NIST investigation into 9/11 didn’t officially begin until Aug. 21, 2002. But the panel wasn’t official until the NCST (National Construction Safety Team) Act was signed into law on October 1, 2002, by President Bush. This act authorized the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish teams to investigate building failures. The final report on the collapses of WTC 1 and 2 was issued on Oct. 26, 2005. The investigation of the collapse of WTC 7 was completed separately in 2008. One must ask why it took over 365 days to start an official investigation into the most heinous crime in American history. The average time for starting investigations is 1 week. Just think of all the evidence that was lost and covered up in that more than 1-year time. On a personal note: I don’t think it was coincidence that it took NIST 4 and 7 years respectively to release these reports. By that time, by now, most people have or are ready to put the “whole 9/11 thing” behind them. While time doesn’t heal, it does remove the urgency. Thus, I’m sure that most people would have taken any report, no matter how improbable or ridiculous, as the official story. Not that they read it in the first place. But remember, the Patriot Acts and other tyrannical legislation, permissible torture, and indefinite detention without a trial, are law now because of this infamous event. And these laws and acts will affect every one of us eventually. And so, forgetting 9/11 or putting it behind us is not really an option now, is it?

–Ω–

In March of 2007, an extensive set of detailed architectural drawings of the World Trade Center became public through the actions of a whistleblower that worked for the Silverstein Group in 2002 that proved beyond any doubt that the official reports into the collapse of the towers misrepresented their construction. The blueprints provided consist of 261 drawings, included detailed plans for the North Tower (WTC 1), the World Trade Center foundation and basement, and the TV mast on top of the North Tower. The blueprints show that FEMA’s report was inaccurate in stating that core columns were “freestanding” when in fact large horizontal beams cross-connected the core columns in a three-dimensional matrix of thick steel. The NIST report into the collapses has also been proven inaccurate by the blueprints, proving the sixteen columns on the long faces of the cores shared the same dimensions for most of each Tower’s height. These omitted and distorted facts serve to render the official reports extremely questionable and deserving of a new and impartial investigation. Translation: these beams would have to be cut for the buildings to fall with almost no resistance, like they did.

–Ω–

More evidence of misleading and purposely misrepresented evidence was thus shown by FEMA and NIST. Prior to the release of the detailed architectural drawings in 2007, ‘9/11 Research’ published the Master Plan, dated December 16, 1963. This was a generic blueprint drawing of the WTC prior to its construction, which did not show structural details such as column dimensions. It did, however, show an arrangement of core columns that was later changed when the towers were constructed. The obsolete core column arrangement indicated in the “Master Plan” has been reproduced in other publications such as the book ‘Multi-Storey Buildings in Steel’. FEMA and NIST’s purposeful reference to these Master Plan drawings pre-dating construction, with the complicit knowledge of their inaccuracies and later changes are just more reasons to dismiss these investigations as fraud and fund a new independent investigation.

–Ω–

James Quintiere, Ph.D. – former Chief of the Fire Science Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has called for an independent review of NIST’s investigation into the collapses of the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11. Dr. Quintiere made his plea during his presentation, “Questions on the WTC Investigations” at the 2007 World Fire Safety Conference. “I wish that there would be a peer review of this,” he said, referring to the NIST investigation. “I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they’ve done; both structurally and from a fire point of view… I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable… Let’s look at real alternatives that might have been the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Towers and how that relates to the official cause and what’s the significance of one cause versus another.” Dr. Quintiere is considered one of the world’s leading fire science researchers and safety engineers.

–Ω–

“Spoliation of a fire (crime) scene is a basis for destroying a legal case in an investigation. Most of the steel was discarded, although the key elements of the core steel were demographically labeled. A careful reading of the NIST report shows that they have no evidence that the temperatures they predict as necessary for failure are corroborated by findings of the little steel debris they have. Why hasn’t NIST declared that this spoliation of the steel was a gross error?” – Question posed to NIST by James Quintiere, Ph.D.

–Ω–

Each of the Twin Towers was pulverized, turned to dust, and totally destroyed in a matter of seconds. In the history of the world there has never been another instance of a steel framed building or skyscraper collapsing from fire. The first and second instance of this was recorded on September 11, 2001 with the collapse at freefall speed of the twin towers. The third instance of this was when WTC 7 collapsed at freefall speed into its own footprint that evening. No airplane had hit WTC 7. Explosions described by firefighters and eyewitnesses as bombs were reported just prior to the WTC 7 collapse.

–Ω–

In addition to the Twin Towers and WTC 7, the World Trade Center complex held buildings 3,4,5, and 6. All of these buildings were severely damaged, first by falling rubble from the twin tower collapses, and then by fires that burned for many hours throughout the entirety of the buildings. Though these buildings were severely thrashed almost beyond recognition, they did not collapse. Yet before collapsing, WTC 7 was hardly damaged at all from debris, and its fires were only sporadic on a few floors, and were oxygen starved (low temperature) throughout the building itself. How is this possible?

–Ω–

Prior to the 9/11 attacks, insiders trading “put options” were placed on United and American Airlines stocks between September 6th and September 10th 2001, at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. “Put options” are bets that a stock will fall in value in the near future. The owner has the option of buying the stock at a lower rate and then selling them at the highest rate, thus earning a quick windfall profit. Also, a stock option usually costs only a fraction of the actual current stock price due to the risk of a total loss. The put options placed on the two airline stocks were reportedly six to eleven times higher than normal on these days. Other unusual “put option” activity was registered with three European reinsurance firms, Germany Re, Swiss Re, and AXA of France, in addition to World Trade Center occupant Morgan Stanley Dean Witter. This either means that these companies had insider information about the events of 9/11, or were told that their values would drop soon. Either way, this is illegal and treasonous. Martha Stewart has got nothing on these crooks!

–Ω–

At least 17 countries warned the United States regarding intelligence about an imminent attack on America prior to 9/11/01. The cover of the FEMA response manual printed in 1997 and titled, “Emergency Response to Terrorism: A Self-Study”, depicted the World Trade Centers’ twin towers in cross hairs. The Military District of Washington D.C. planned for and simulated a plane crash just like the Pentagon Attack in their “Operation Mascal” planning exercise on October 24, 2000. A Minnesota FBI agent investigating Zacarias Moussaoui testified that he notified the Secret Service weeks before Sept. 11 that a terror team might hijack a plane and “hit the nation’s capital.”

• “There, ah, were, ah, no warning signs that I’m aware of…– Robert S. Mueller, FBI Director under Bush, September 17, 2001, in a press conference.

• “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile; a high-jacked airplane as a missile…” – Condoleezza Rice, as National Security Advisor in a press conference shortly after 9/11.

• “Nobody in our government at least, and I don’t think the prior government that could envision flying airplanes into buildings.” – George W. Bush, as President of the United States in a press conference, shortly after 9/11.

• “No specific threat involving really, ah, domestic operation or involving, ah, what happened obviously, ah, the cities, the airliners and so forth…Dick Cheney, as Vice-President, September 16th, in a television interview.

• “Regrettably, the tragic events of 9/11 were never anticipated or exercised.” – Gen. Ralph Eberhart, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and N.O.R.A.D. commander, as reported to USA Today.

USA Today reports that in the 2 years before the attacks of September 11th, N.O.R.A.D conducted exercises using high-jacked airliners as weapons, and one target was the world trade center.” – Peter Jennings, ABC News.

What the subject has in his mind is that he will board any American commercial aircraft pretending to be an ordinary passenger. Then he will hijack [the] said aircraft, control its cockpit and dive it at the CIA headquarters. Other buildings targeted: the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.” – Report dated January 20, 1995. Philippine police say this document and others outlining three terrorist plots were given to the FBI in 1995 after investigators here busted a terrorist cell. Two attacks — to assassinate the Pope and to bomb U.S. planes — were foiled, but parts of the last and most ambitious plan, Philippine police say, became reality six years later. Reported on CNN March 11, 2002.

 

–Ω–

When a crime has been committed, any good investigator would ask the question:

Who benefited? So… first, who didn’t benefit from 9/11?

Saddam Husain – lost his dictatorship, his country, his power, and was executed, not that he had anything to do with 9/11.

Osama Bin Laden – lost everything, including his freedom and the protection afforded him by the Taliban prior to 9/11. He’ll never be free again, and will have to hide forever. He can no longer visit other countries for medical care, since those countries would be accused of harboring a known fugitive and “terrorist”.

Al Qaeda - was created, funded and armed by the C.I.A. in the 1980’s for the purposes of fighting off a Russian invasion of Afghanistan. Since 9/11, this or any other group would find it impossible to carry out terrorist attacks anywhere in the world, since 9/11 was the catalyst for the Patriot Acts, which allow our government to spy and listen to any phone or computer communications without limit, including yours. This would seriously undermine any group’s ability to function as a terrorist cell.

In conclusion, all of the usual suspects of 9/11 gained absolutely nothing from 9/11. In fact… they lost everything.

–Ω–

So… Who then, actually benefited from 9/11?

Larry Silverstein – He became the leaseholder of the World Trade Center just a few weeks before 9/11, purchasing it for 15 million dollars. He inherited a mandatory asbestos removal problem, which would have cost over 1 billion dollars to complete in the buildings. Also, the twin towers had a low occupancy rate, with many offices un-rented. Before he signed the lease, Silverstein reworked the insurance policy to specifically cover “terrorist attacks”. After 9/11, he received 7 billion dollars as a settlement from his insurance policy. That’s a 6.85 billion dollar profit!

PNAC – This Neo-con manifesto, created and then published less than 12 months prior to 9/11, included the following goals: to transform America into tomorrows dominant force and global constabulary unchallenged by the U.N. and the rest of the world, to abandon the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, to establish permanent military bases in the Middle-East (against the constitution), regime change in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, and almost all other goals stated in the manifesto which came to fruition only after 9/11. PNAC was like a playbook for the events following 9/11.

Dick Cheney and Halliburton – Former vice-president and former CEO of Halliburton, Dick Cheney still receives a multi-year differed salary package from Halliburton. In a major conflict of interest, this conglomerate company and its subsidiary KBR were granted multi-no-bid contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and at home. In Iraq, KBR leased $40,000 trucks for 5 years, each costing approximately $270,000 at the end of the lease, charged $100 per load of laundry for soldiers who weren’t allowed to do it themselves, and charged the Iraqi government as much as $25,000 per month for each of as many as 1,800 fuel trucks that were to deliver gasoline to Iraq after the 2003 invasion, though the trucks often spent days or weeks sitting idle on the border, and were abandoned in the desert for such things as flat tires. The company’s policy is called “cost-plus”, meaning that the more KBR spends, the more profit they make. KBR recently received a no-bid government contract to build internment camps in the United States as well. Halliburton’s stock has increased greatly since the invasions started. Dick Cheney was a member of the CFR – Council On Foreign Relations before becoming vice president and still working for Halliburton.

Bush and the Weapons Industry – Since the attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan, the weapons and arms industry has reaped billions of dollars in profits from military contracts and foreign buyers. With the goal being to continue the fighting and bombing as long as possible, as in Vietnam, the weapons industry will continue to make guns and bombs and sell them for huge profits to our government. The Bush family, as part of the Carlyle Group, has gained huge profits from the companies manufacture of weapons and military bases since 9/11.

Oil Companies – Over 60% of the world’s oil fields are in the Middle-East. The United States is by far the biggest consumer of this oil, bar none. Without gaining control of these oil fields, the U.S. economy would collapse, since oil is sold almost exclusively in dollars (petro-dollars) and not foreign currencies. It must control the supply to other countries as well, in order to keep the oil sold in dollars. U.S. oil interests have wanted to build an oil pipeline in the Middle-East since the 1980’s from the Caspian oil fields through Afghanistan. However, the occupying power in Afghanistan, the Taliban, would not allow this to be built. Only 1 day after the United States installed its own government into Afghanistan after 9/11, a contract was signed to construct this pipeline that the oil companies so desperately wanted.

The United States Government – 9/11 gave the elitists running our country inside and outside of our government the opportunity to establish unprecedented unconstitutional and tyrannical legislation in the form of The Patriot Acts. This act allows the government to spy on the communications of every citizen, to sample the DNA of any person convicted of any crime, and it allows for the arrest and indefinite detention of any citizen on suspicion, without a warrant, without probable cause, in secret, without notification of anyone including next of kin – and it takes away your right to a lawyer. Many other documents, acts, and laws have been passed that would never have been allowed prior to 9/11 and the “war on terror”, and which completely destroy the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and even give the federal government new powers of regulation and jurisdiction over individual states. The Homeland Security agency was established after 9/11, and is now sponsoring the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, training them to fight domestic terrorism, similar to the Hitler Youth. By the way, we are all terrorists according to the Patriot Act! Also, please keep in mind that when you elect a President of the United States, you are not just voting for one man, you are voting for the hundreds of appointed (unelected) positions in the highest offices of government and beyond that this one man appoints. Chief of Staff, Secretary’s of State, Defense, Treasury, etc… All of these have conflicts of interest before being appointed, having worked in the industries they are selected to regulate, which is why no-bid contracts are awarded. Note: Obama’s largest campaign contributors were the banks that received the billions of dollars in “bail-outs” from the so-called financial crisis. This is politics; complete corporate corruption on a global scale.

“Project Achilles: Cell Phone Experiments in a Light Aircraft” – conducted by A.K. Dewdney. This was an experiment with several brands of cell phones and their call connection success rates at differing altitudes, up to 8,000 feet. Almost all of these phones failed to connect, or were unintelligible and dropped at this height. This is primarily due to the fact that cell phone towers extend and receive their signals horizontally, not vertically into the air – since there are no people floating around up there and angels have a direct line… Yet we are expected to believe that multiple, crystal clear calls were connected from 36,000 feet in the air, more than four times that tests altitude. This is impossible, as anybody who’s tried to make a call from cruising altitude with a cell phone can attest. Interestingly, on July 15, 2004, American Airlines installed its first cell phone-receiving station onto one of its jets. For the first time, passengers were able to make calls from 36,000 feet in the air. This was not possible on 9/11.

–Ω–

There are a surprising amount of companies and individuals who either appeared to have or admitted to have prior knowledge of the attacks of 9/11:

Zim American Israeli Shipping Co. broke a lease in order to vacate the World Trade Center just days before the attack. Zim’s lease extended through the end of the year and the termination cost was $50,000.

• At Odigo, the instant messaging service, two Israeli employees received e-mail messages two hours before the first World Trade Center assault, predicting the attack. Only 1 person of Israeli decent died that day.

San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown admitted to having received a warning not to fly on 9/11 from what he described as his airport security late Monday evening, just hours before the attack.

Salman Rushdie, who is under the continuous protection of Scotland Yard, was prevented from flying on September 11th, 2001.

Jim Pierce, cousin of President Bush, was scheduled to attend a conference on the 105th floor of the South Tower on 9/11/01, where his company’s New York offices were based. But the conference was moved across the street to the Millennium Hotel, because, the story goes, the group was too large for the WTC!

• Newsweek reported: On September 10… a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly cancelled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.

• According to the New York Times, Silverstein Properties had planned to meet on 9/11/01 on the 88th floor of one of the towers to “discuss what to do in the event of a terrorist attack,” but cancelled the meeting Monday night (9/10) “because one participant could not attend.”

–Ω–

On Sept. 10, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war – but not on foreign terrorists… “The adversary’s closer to home. It’s the Pentagon bureaucracy,” he said. Rumsfeld said the money wasted by the military poses a serious threat. “In fact, it could be said it’s a matter of life and death,” said Rumsfeld. “According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions…” $2.3 trillion — that’s $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America. Rumsfeld promised change, but the next day on 9/11, the world changed – and in the rush to fund the new war on terrorism, the war on corruption and waste seems to have been forgotten.

–Ω–

Michael Chertoff was the second United States Secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush, and co-author of the USA Patriot Act. After 9/11, the families of the victims from that day were given a choice. They could settle out of court, meaning quicker payouts for funerals and the raising of their families, as well as satiating their greed with something akin to instant gratification – or they could wage a costly court battle against the government, involving a lengthy investigation into the causes and culprits of 9/11. Option #2 would have taken a very long time, with no guarantees of financial rewards. Therefore, in the end, at least 97% of the victim’s families chose to settle out of court: choosing money instead of an proper investigation. Thanks to government lawyers like Chertoff, not a single plaintiff has been heard in court, and no government official has been charged with even gross negligence in the case of 9/11.

 

–Ω–

I could go on… and on… and on… and on… and on… but I think this is enough for our purposes. All we* want is a new investigation, by unbiased investigators, with no ties to any of the above mentioned groups, organizations, governments, or corporations, and with no financial compensation other than billed hours, under penalty of treason! Is that really so much to ask? We have all of this overwhelming evidence. Isn’t that enough?

 

* By we, I mean the group which has recently been dubbed the “Truthers” by the main-stream media. Somehow, the word ‘truth‘ was actually spun into having a negative connotation. This is how rediculously obscene our media has become… and it works! For when you hear the truth, your first thought is “oh, that’s just conspiracy theory!” No… it’s truth. Provable, documented, living truth. Perhaps this brainwashing works because of all the television stations, radio stations, movie production studios, newspapers, magazines, and other forms of mainstream media out there, almost all are all owned by a conglomerate of 6 differant companies. This is commonly reffered to as a monopoly – a monopoly with the most dier and purposeful of consequences… a completely ignorant public.

Want Peace? Update The Geneva Convention!


After delving into the world of the Geneva Conventions and other war crimes bills, I have come up with an idea. A good idea.

You see, the Geneva Conventions don’t effect the occupations and invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan due to the fact that no official declaration of war was made by Congress. This make these so-called ‘wars’ illegal and unconstitutional. More importantly, it makes the war crimes, torture, and murder of innocent men women and children, including some of our own troops, not bound by these Geneva Conventions. (read full research: here)

The idea is quite simple. And yet it would put a stop immediately to the occupations happening now, and would halt the movement of troops into Iran, potentially stopping World War 3!

This, I know, is a bold statement… but please hear me out.

I think we should look into amending the Geneva Conventions to state two things:

1) These conventions shall include all signatory states and all peoples, in wartime or in peacetime, in regards to any use of military, police, or private forces for foreign or domestic purposes, and shall not be circumvented by rhetoric and “peace-keeping” efforts or undeclared war efforts, occupations, or invasions.

2) These conventions shall be retro-active to the date of their original, pre-amendment writing, and shall make all who have knowingly violated these conventions and continue to do so, bound by and subjected to the fines and punishments therein.

This simple amendment would solve a lot of our problems, and force legaly out of office and into exile or jail, and even the execution of many old war criminals and current politicians who have been complacent or complicit in said war crimes against the Middle East and around the world. This includes Mr. Bush and his father, President Obama (who is now attacking Pakistan and weeks away from entering Iran) Clinton, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the countless others in the gang of war criminals who, until now, have gotten away with murder most foul simply because the peoples of the world are semantically unprotected by these conventions and human rights ideals.

It would also reign in our soldiers, and for that matter Blackwater and other private security firms, since the Geneva Conventions require that the State (country) is responsible its soldiers actions, and punishable there in.

If you don’t yet see the profound impact this one amendment would have on the world and the stopping of Americas unconstitutional killing fields in the Middle-East, let me explain:

Since the president and his cabinet are currently not constrained by these conventions – since we are not officially at war – they are free to do what ever they want, and will continue to pass heinous legislation and commit fraudulent acts of terror in undeclared wars against all countries, including our own. They will continue to be able to snatch anybody they please off of the streets in the act of rendition and imprison them, unconstrained by any human rights violations treaties. This is why they are able to torture and not be charged with war crimes.

If the Geneva Conventions were to be made to include all conflicts, wars, undeclared wars, invasions, prisons, prison camps, occupations, and anything else related to military and private security forces and prisoners or “detainees” and “enemy combatants” where ever they go, there would be no more war… unless Congress legally and constitutionally declared it, in which case their actions would be scrutinized under Geneva Conventions anyway.

This means peace, plain and simple.

This means that the crimes of 911 could be heard in a Geneva Conventions forum, no longer covered up by Americas fraudulent media.

This might also mean that our media might be complicit in the cover-up, and therefore indirectly responsible for the propagation these war crimes.

This means that anyone currently or whom was in the past involved in these illegal war crimes will be immediately punished and removed from office, and this would let loose the strangle-hold that the elites, corporations, and hopefully the United Nations have on our once legitimate system of government.

———————–

And so, I need help… Anyone that can tell me where to start with this or help me to get this idea going into reality would be greatly appreciated. Or, if you want to take it and run, by all means do so. Just keep me informed.

Any volunteers?

America Never Declared War, So War Crimes Don’t Apply ???


Is America at war with Iraq? How about Afghanistan? Pakistan?

The answer to these questions is perhaps the most important concept that the citizens of the republic of the United States can possibly understand.

The answer is… NO!

No legal or constitutional declaration of war has ever been stated, and therefore America is not officially in a state of war. And the implications of this are more far reaching than any of us realize.

Why is this fact so vitally important to the heath and welfare of America?

If you understand nothing else about the so-called “war on terror”, I wish it to be this: without an official declaration of war by way of congressional decree under Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States, America has no authority or legitimacy to attack, occupy, kill, or enter forcibly into another country. The president of the United States cannot declare war; only the congress can approve war. This means that our president, his cabinet, the Congress, and judicial branches of government are all in violation of our most cherished laws under the Constitution of the United States.

The following are the reasons this fact is so important to comprehend, and why if we don’t stop this from continuing to occur – in Pakistan, then Iran, and eventually in our own beautiful, once free United States itself – We The People of the United States of America will lose everything our Constitution grants to us.

—-> The Geneva Convention – this set of documents, of which America is a signatory, are international treaties binding all States that have accepted them. Almost every State in the world has signed the Geneva Conventions. The 1st and 2nd Geneva Conventions straight forwardly state that the sick, wounded and shipwrecked must be cared for humanely and adequately by the enemy state. “Combatants” must treat members of the enemy armies who are wounded, sick or shipwrecked as carefully as they would treat their own injured or sick. All efforts must be made to collect the dead quickly, to confirm death by medical examination, and to identify bodies and protect them from robbery. Medical equipment must not be intentionally destroyed, and medical establishments and vehicles must not be attacked, damaged or prevented from operating even if they do not contain patients. The 3rd Geneva Convention states: “Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War” members of the armed forces who fall into enemy hands are to be considered without exception to be in the power of the enemy State, not in the hands of the individuals or troops who have captured them. The state is therefore responsible for their soldier’s treatment of POW’s.

The convention clearly states that Prisoners of war MUST BE:

- Treated humanely with respect for their persons and their honor.

- Enabled to inform their next of kin and the Central Prisoners of War Agency (ICRC, the International Red Cross) of their capture.

- Allowed to correspond regularly with relatives and to receive relief parcels.

- Allowed to keep their clothes, feeding utensils and personal effects.

- Supplied with adequate food and clothing.

- Provided with quarters not inferior to those of their captor’s troops.

- Given the medical care their state of health demands.

- Paid for any work they do.

- Repatriated if certified seriously ill or wounded, (but they must not resume active military duties afterwards).

- Quickly released and repatriated when hostilities cease.

In addition, prisoners of war MUST NOT BE:

-Compelled to give any information other than their name, age, rank and service number.

- Deprived of money or valuables without a receipt (and these must be returned at the time of release).

- Given individual privileges other than for reasons of health, sex, age, military rank or professional qualifications.

- Held in close confinement except for breaches of the law, although their liberty can be restricted for security reasons.

- Compelled to do military work, nor work which is dangerous, unhealthy or degrading.

The fourth Geneva Convention is: “Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War”, all individuals “who do not belong to the armed forces, take no part in the hostilities and find themselves in the hands of the Enemy or an Occupying Power”

Protected civilians MUST BE:

- Treated humanely at all times and protected against acts or threats of violence, insults and public curiosity.

- Entitled to respect for their honour, family rights, religious convictions and practices, and their manners and customs.

- Specially protected, for example in safety zones, if wounded, sick, old, children under 15, expectant mothers or mothers of children under 7.

- Enabled to exchange family news of a personal kind. – Helped to secure news of family members dispersed by the conflict.

- Allowed to practise their religion with ministers of their own faith. Civilians who are interned have the same rights as prisoners of war. They may also ask to have their children interned with them, and wherever possible families should be housed together and provided with the facilities to continue normal family life. Wounded or sick civilians, civilian hospitals and staff, and hospital transport by land, sea or air must be specially respected and may be placed under protection of the red cross/crescent emblem.

Protected civilians MUST NOT BE:

- Discriminated against because of race, religion or political opinion. – Forced to give information.

- Used to shield military operations or make an area immune from military operations.

- Punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. – Women must not be indecently assaulted, raped, or forced into prostitution.

In reference to torture, the Geneva Convention states:

“Prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission … causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of the present Convention. Likewise, prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity.

“No physical or mental torture, nor any other form of coercion, may be inflicted on prisoners of war to secure from them information of any kind whatever. Prisoners of war who refuse to answer may not be threatened, insulted, or exposed to any unpleasant or disadvantageous treatment of any kind.”

“Prisoners of war shall enjoy complete latitude in the exercise of their religious duties, including attendance at the service of their faith, on condition that they comply with the disciplinary routine prescribed by the military authorities.”

“The following acts are and shall remain prohibited … cruel treatment and torture; … Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, humiliating and degrading treatment; “

“Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory … are prohibited, regardless of their motive.”

(Geneva Convention, 1949)
———————————-

So, this certainly and without a doubt states that torture is specifically not permitted under these conventions. So why is our government and military (and private security forces contracted by the U.S. government) torturing, maiming, raping, humiliating, water-boarding, and mistreating prisoners and civilians and getting away with it? Why hasn’t anyone called foul: a violation of the Geneva Conventions against innocent civilians and prisoners of war?

Quite simply, it’s because no declaration of war was ever legally made. This is key to understanding America’s disposition…

- No declaration of war means there are no official prisoners of war.

- No declaration of war means the Geneva conventions do not apply.

- No declaration of war means that U.S. soldiers can do whatever they please with no repercussions, since the convention that places responsibility for our soldier’s actions onto the state do not apply.

- No declaration of war means that we are occupying another country or “state” against Article 1, Section 8 of the constitution, which states:

“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States …To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water… To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years…”

The term “enemy combatants” has replaced the terms “prisoner of war” and “civilians”.

Proof of this fact – that no war has been declared in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc… can be found in the following, which aired on CSPAN in October 2002:

During the October 2nd  and 3rd, 2002 House International Relations Committee hearing on the Iraq resolution, Ron Paul introduced an amendment which actually would have simply and officially declared war against Iraq. The following is that simple amendment, which would have put the United States legally and constitutionally at war and, more importantly, subject to Geneva Convention guarantees and other war crimes documents:

AMENDMENT TO H. J. RES. Ll

To be titled: “Joint Resolution declaring a state of war between the United States and the Government of Iraq

OFFERED BY MR. PAUL

- Strike all after the resolving clause and insert the following: ‘‘That pursuant to article I, section 8 of the United States Constitution, a state of war is declared to exist between the United States and the Government of Iraq and the President is hereby authorized and directed to employ the United States Armed Forces to carry on war against the Government of Iraq and to bring the conflict to a successful conclusion.”

Mr. Paul also stated earlier of the resolution, as it existed without his amendment:

“We are giving the President the authority to defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq. In other words, we are transferring the power to declare war to the President. He can declare the war and fight the war when he pleases. And that is number one. Number two, equal to number one; (the president will) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. In this bill that we are working on, they mention United Nations 32 times — I am sorry, 25 times. They never mention article 1, section 8, once.”

“…No matter what you call it, we are talking about a resolution that permits the President to wage war.” – Ron Paul

The committee put Rep. Paul’s amendment to rest (into the trash) with no dissenting votes, and on the afternoon of 10/03/02, the House International Relations Committee passed this resolution, which gave the president (Bush) the power to send our armies into Iraq without a formal declaration of war by congress, without consideration of the unconstitutional act of preemptively attacking a state or country which poses no imminent threat to the United States according to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, and without the international constraints of the Geneva Convention or any war crimes legislation to restrain our troops from committing heinous acts of torture and violence against innocent woman and children, civilians, Iraqi resistance to foreign invaders, dogs, cats, livestock, or any other living thing in Iraq while “just following orders”.

And now, President Obama has sent troops illegally and unconstitutionally to Pakistan, without an official Congressional declaration of war. He has withdrawn troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and replaced them with even more private security “peace-keepers” like Blackwater (who changed its name to Xe due to such horrible publicity and war crimes charges). And he is about to make the mistake of “preemptively” invading and attempting to occupy Iran, which would be a fatal error in foreign relations considering Iran’s alliance and friendship with both China and Russia.

But then, Obama’s mentor Zbigniew Brzezinski has been after a conflict with Russia since his post as National Security Advisor in the Carter and Reagan administrations.

-Brzezinski advised Carter in 1978 to engage the People’s Republic of China and traveled to Beijing to lay the groundwork for the normalization of relations between the two countries. This also resulted in the severing of ties with the United States’ longtime anti-Communist ally the Republic of China. Also in 1978, Polish Cardinal Karol Wojtyła was elected Pope John Paul II—an event which the Soviets believed Brzezinski orchestrated.

In 1979 Brzezinski saw the overthrow of US ally the Shah of Iran, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The Iranian Revolution precipitated the Iran hostage crisis, which would last for the rest of Carter’s presidency. Brzezinski anticipated – indeed some some have claimed he even engineered [Matthew Carr, The Infernal Machine: A History of Terrorism from Alexander II to Al-Qaeda, chapter 10.] the Soviet invasion, and, with the support of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the PRC, he created a strategy to undermine the Soviet presence. – [Wikipedia: Zbigniew Brzezinski]

Brzezinski has had his hands in almost all American conflicts and foreign relations, from Red China to Iran Contra to Russia to Afghanistan to Vietnam. In 1981 Brzezinski revealed that he encouraged the Chinese to support Pol Pot. This was part of a wider policy of forcing the Vietnamese out of Cambodia by funding anti-Vietnamese guerrilla groups that the U.S. helped create. [America Abroad – TIME Magazine]

Understanding that Obama is a student of and was mentored by Zbigniew Brzezinski is imperative to understanding the mentality and intentions of our president and his multitude of not-elected, appointed cabinet members. From Obama’s Chief of Staff – duel Israeli citizen Raum Emanuel, to foreign born Special Adviser Henry Kissinger, these elitist appointees rule our elected officials.

To further decry the importance of the illegality and unconstitutionality of the occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan… a memo was given by White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales, dated January 25, 2002, urging President George Bush to declare the war in Afghanistan exempt from the Geneva Convention. In the memo, the corrupted White House lawyer referenced the 1996 law passed by Congress known as the “War Crimes Act”, which banned any American from committing war crimes – defined in part as “grave breaches” of the Geneva convention. The memo warns that the law applies to “U.S.  officials” and that punishments for violators “include the death penalty.” (NewsWeek, May 17, 2004)

Shortly after Gonzales’ memo came out, Secretary Powell wrote a dissenting memo arguing that Alberto Gonzales’ attempt to declare the war in Afghanistan exempt from the Geneva convention undermines more than a century of U.S. policy and practice. In that memo, he states:

“It will reverse over a century of U.S. policy and practice in supporting the Geneva conventions and undermine the protections of the law of war for our troops, both in this specific conflict and in general. … It may provoke some individual foreign prosecutors to investigate and prosecute our officials and troops. … We will be challenged in international forums (UN Commission on Human Rights; World Court; etc.).”

On March 19, 2003, despite these warnings by Powell and others, Bush (not Congress) declared a preemptive war in Iraq.

This one act alone – especially since it was proven that no “weapons of mass destruction” were anywhere near Iraq, nor that Iraq had the capability to produce such weapons, nor that Iraq or Sadam Huesain had anything to do with the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers 1, 2, and 7 and the attack on the pentagon – and since Iraq posed no “imminent threat” to the United States, constitutes a “grave breach” of the Geneva Convention, which states:

“Law enforcement officials shall not use firearms against persons except in self-defense or defense of others against the imminent threat of death or serious injury, to prevent the perpetration of a particularly serious crime involving grave threat to life, to arrest a person presenting such a danger and resisting their authority, or to prevent his or her escape, and only when less extreme means are insufficient to achieve these objectives. In any event, intentional lethal use of firearms may only be made when strictly unavoidable in order to protect life.” (United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, Fall 1990)

The U.S. Military Code specifies that it is a crime to violate the Geneva convention:

“Whoever, … commits a war crime, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, … and if death results to the victim, shall also be subject to the penalty of death. … Definition: As used in this section the term ‘war crime’ means … a grave breach in any of the international conventions signed at Geneva 12 August 1949 [or acts] prohibited by Article 23, 25, 27, or 28 of the Annex to the Hague Convention IV, Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land, signed 18 October 1907 … ” (Section 2441: U.S. Military Code on War Crimes)

Also, after WWII in 1945, the United States led the formation of the “Nuremberg Principles” which formed the United Nations Charter. This charter binds every country in the world. It defines as a crime:

“Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances…”

For a chronological account of the actions taken by the U.S. Military under the leadership of George W. Bush as Commander-in-Chief which lead to multiple violations of the Geneva convention and U.S. Military Code, please go here: http://impeachforpeace.org/evidence/pages/torture.html

I could go on and on with countless violations of the Geneva Conventions, war crimes, Nuremburg principles, etc… but what would be the point? We are not at war.

This one little fact that has been overlooked and not reported by the media is the key to ushering in peace. Acknowledging it would mean the end of these illegal and unconstitutional occupations of innocent countries, and the unwarranted murder and impoverishing of whole populations. It would mean that torture, outrageous POW camps like Guantanamo Bay, and any other war crimes committed by this administration, our troops and Blackwater thugs overseas, and crimes against Americans themselves would be treated as such and punishable by the Geneva Conventions and other war crimes treatises.

The new president continues to abuse the jargon of the previous administration, calling for a “war on terror”. This is ridiculous, and is about as winnable as a war on mosquitoes. This war on terror can best be described as a never ending, un-winnable war, which will continue to allow the United States and the United Nations to invade and terrorize any country, any home, and even any American who challenges the corporate fascist control of America and abroad.

While we as mindless sheep continue to refer to the events in the middle east as:

the “war in Iraq

thewar in Afghanistan”

the new “war in Pakistan

and the impending “war with Iran” - which will no doubt lead to something akin to awar with the world”…

These politicians and appointed officials are making fortunes for their lobbyists and elitist co-conspirators though the corporations they own, chair, direct, advise, and profit from by awarding no-bid contracts to them in these occupied countries, but only after our military destroys them to create the need for reconstruction.

It is time for the American people to wake up and take responsibility for the war crimes and human rights violations that our government is perpetrating against the people, the families, and the innocents of the Middle-East. This will not stop until they have taken over, through the United Nations, all of the nation-states, not excluding our own. We, as responsible citizens can no longer afford to ignore these crimes. For the only other way that this will stop, is for the citizenry to stand up and say, “NO MORE KILLING”

We must do something now… for the hour is late, and every innocent death is on all of our hands. And they get bloodier by the hour.
