WAR AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
In this Part III of the “America is at war with the world”-series, we (re)examine another war the so-called leaders of our country have been waging for several decades on the domestic front. It is the war on the American people.
In this war, the New World Order “elite” are not using the drones or bombs or armies. At least not yet. Instead, they have opted for the most powerful weapon of mass destruction the world has ever known. It is a weapon the Catholic church, for example, had also used it for centuries to subjugate millions of its adherents and to keep them from jumping the coop.
In Aug 1997, this writer published a column which the Washington Times (re)titled DANCING ‘ROUND THE GOLDEN CALF. My original headline was “Dumbing Down of America.” Here’s the opening paragraphs:
“America is rapidly becoming a nation of mutts. Our country’s traditional character is being systematically destroyed by nihilistic “liberals,” the New World Order’s centurions whose only God is the Almighty Dollar.
The same kinds of people invented the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” and applied it to the unsuspecting Russians. Now, they are trying to ram a ‘dictatorship of the minorities’ down the naive Americans’ throats.”
“It doesn’t take very long to dumb down a nation,” agreed a former publishing CEO, a long-time advocate of better quality education in America. “After only two or three generations, you can easily produce a nation of morons.”
Fast-forward to September 2001, only nine days after 9/11. Writing from Belgrade, Montana, a stopover on my driving trip through 10 western states (no airplanes were flying back then, remember?), this is what I said:
BELGRADE, Montana, Sep. 20, 2001 – “I am getting really worried about all this same-mindedness that I am seeing in this country. I am afraid we are being led into totalitarianism, but of a different and more dangerous kind than that practiced by the fascists and the Communists. Because it is subtler, and thus more perfidious. For more, click on… “Clash of Greens” (Truth in Media).
That’s when I was also reminded of an article a published a year earlier which compared, what I called the “Ostrich Revolution” in Serbia (former Yugoslavia) with the 2000 election that was taking place in our country. The ostrich cartoon image was a part of that story:
“So the so-called Yugoslav “revolution” turned out to be an election bought and paid for by the same countries that bombed Serbia last year. Yet my, now definitely FORMER friend, Vojislav Kostunica, kept denying that he and his DOS cronies took any money from anyone. Which makes him a… (TiM readers should feel free to fill in the blanks).
The Serb “demo farce” was then followed by a “Wag the Dog”-type pre-arranged “palace coup,” in which more than half a million Belgrade citizens were duped into acting as unpaid Hollywood-style extras.
Some “revolution!” Prague’s 1989 uprising has been dubbed a “velvet revolution.” Belgrade’s 2000 post-election protest should be named an “ostrich revolution.”
Which means that when Hollywood gets around to making the Yugoslavia sequel to the “Wag the Dog” movie, its title will be already set. “Ostriches,” of course.”
Fast-forward to June 2002. By this stage, the so-called “elite” had actually used weapons of mass destruction in their war against the American people. The 9/11 was their kickoff of the “perpetual war for perpetual commerce” assault on mankind worldwide. Here’s are concluding paragraphs of my “Dirty Tricks with Dirty Bombs” story:
There is still time to stop the Bush “911 brown shirts” from taking our country from us. “Just say no!” to assaults on the Constitution by those who have sworn to protect it. And kick the NWO kow-towing congressional rascals out of office, come November.
The “dirty bomb”-story may well have been timed to divert the public’s attention from the increasing vigilance with which the public and some Washington officials are demanding answers to the Mother of All Questions:
“What did the Bush administration know, and when did it know it?”
The answer to that question may be the first step in ridding this country of the “911 brown shirts.”
The article opened with the following verses above the ostrich cartoon:
Our heads in sand,
Our tails held high,
Our brains dumbed dry,
Our pockets picked clean,
In the Wall Street canteen.”
“American voters?” I asked tongue-in-cheek in my comment.
Which lead me to create this composite header image…
PERPETUAL ELECTIONS FOR PERPETUAL DEMO FARCE COMPLEMENT PERPETUAL WARS
The second thing was the excruciating bore of the 2016 presidential election campaign. The carefully orchestrated events are being shoved down our collective throats by the “lamestream” media. I have been doing my best to ignore that charade. Which has been hard to do. Because daily headlines are filled with “Trump said this… Hillary said that… etc.” comments.
Which reminded me of the “panem et circenses” (bread and games)-period in ancient Rome. A thoroughly corrupt and soon-to-be defunct once great Roman empire offered its citizens blood and gore in the coliseums along with bread and wine. It was the Roman rulers’ way of dumbing down the nation and stupefying the masses. And thus distracting them from the perfidy and deception by their own government.
That’s what’s also happening in America today. Along with “perpetual war for perpetual commerce” (blood and gore), we are being served up presidential campaigns like some sort of perpetual sporting events.
The sheer expense of running a campaign under such circumstances raises the bar above the means of an average American no matter how smart or brave he or she may be. Which is the point of it. So that in the end, only the anointed candidates of the two parties, who work for the best interests of the same bankers and corporate chieftains, get to move into the White House.
“Demo farce” – that’s what I called in after the 1996 presidential election (see “DEMO FARCE” AND THE AMERICAN CENTURY, Nov 1996). Here’s an excerpt from that Washington Times column:
“The Presidential Election ’96 had all the excitement of a one-horse race, a big yawn!
Fielding two horses from the same stable evidently suited the U.S. Establishment just fine. Election ’96 was a “demo farce!” The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”
It did not used to be that way. When Kennedy ran against Nixon in 1960, for example, he announced his candidacy in January of that year. So it was a 10-month campaign.
Nowadays, presidential campaigns are two-year races. U.S. presidential candidates started announcing in December of 2006, for example, for the 2008 election.
The nearly two-year campaign tires some voters.
“It just seems to be getting longer and longer every year. I think it’s exhausting for the American public,” one voter told Contacto magazine in 2008.
And that can lead to low voter turnout, says Brian Darling of the Heritage Foundation. “By the end, by election day, they [voters] just don’t really care who wins the presidency.”
Which is the point of it. The lower turnout, the better for the establishment candidates. Because only the ostriches are likely to vote.
The rest of us are likely to take a hike on election day (see DISGUST & APATHY: BIG WINNERS IN 2014 ELECTION, NOVEMBER 5, 2014).
“Perpetual election for perpetual demo farce” is not the case in other democratic countries. Stephen Harper, for example, became Canada’s prime minister in less than two weeks. In France, elections took three months. And just six days later, Jacques Chirac left the Elysee Palace in the hands of his successor, Nicholas Sarkozy. The Australians elected the Labor Party and their leader Kevin Rudd after what one blogger termed a “marathon six-week campaign.”
And so on and so forth. Only in America do we have “perpetual elections” complementing our “perpetual wars against the world.”
It’s comforting to know that there will be an end to this travesty. The fate of ancient Rome illuminates the way for the students of modern history.
