Newspapers, radio, TV and the mudslingers are trying to cover up what is becoming obvious to anyone but the blind: America had become a dictatorship with a strongly entrenched bureaucracy under the control of powerful special interests. This is not, in any way, an overstatement of fact.
Trying to disable a dictatorship that has ruled America outside her legislature and Constitutional structure is turning into a nightmare few of us have expected.
The “War on Terror” is turning out to be little more than a front for a massive financial scam stealing billions of dollars from, not only America, but Western Europe, the Middle East, Russia and China. None of this could be done until America herself was brought down and crushed under the heel of a police state.
What we have left is a justice system crippled by years of secret arrests, phony trials, torture, election rigging and a huge new bureaucracy answerable to no congressional authority.
Our Patriot Acts, passed by our cowardly congress, removed all Constitutional rights from Americans and allowed uncontrolled corruption at every level, banking, oil, defense, agriculture, pollution, election rigging, literally anything imaginable, to go on with full impunity.
The rule of law in America died overnight. No authority existed that couldn’t be overridden by a phone call from a fat cat to their local party headquarters. Arrests were ordered, not by government, but by “business” insiders who bought their way into power with their checkbooks.
It turned out that their “business” was phony government contracts, looting banks and selling America to her enemies. We know that millions of people have lost their homes, their jobs and families around America are suffering. We know this must be true, although nothing is ever reported.
We only see empty highways, closed factories, empty houses and closed stores, not by the dozens but all around us. We hear numbers and suffering, yes, the suffering of the occasional Wall Street thief, now under arrest, or millionaire whose huge estate is sold off. A trillion dollars was already sent to our banks to save America. Those banks are not lending that money to finance homes, cars, new businesses or anything else. Billions were paid out in bonuses, billions were stolen but little really went into our economy.
It seems the idea of people having good paying jobs, driving decent cars, sending their kids to college and owning homes offended people with the will, the influence and the power to take it all away.
All they had to do is crush the value of real estate, suck the money out of the banks, bond and stock markets, push up oil prices, food prices and keep the world at war. What our middle class worked for, saved for and sacrificed for was gone in a flash.
The same magicians that could take gasoline from a dollar a gallon to four dollars to two dollars on a whim can make your job, your home and your savings disappear in the wink of an eye.
They did it with your civil rights even easier and you said nothing. The result, carefully planned, I assure you, was to make certain that every home was worthless, every retirement account was empty. Fear makes us compliant.
Only then could we live as intended, fearful of each other and turning to anyone or anything that promised us safety, our next meal, and a third rate version of the American dream, life half an inch above the poverty level for the lucky and total despair for tens of millions of Americans. Real estate prices, unless something drastic is done, have only begun to drop.
Foreclosures will continue for years until up to 40% of American homes are empty. Industrial jobs will all disappear, even China is closing hundreds of plants a month. Low paying retail jobs are going away by the hundreds of thousands, jobs that kept millions in poverty off welfare and provided second jobs for families skirting poverty.
When the stock market crashed in 1929, brought on by “not so accidental” manipulation of the money markets by the very illegal Federal Reserve System, the private banking group created unconstitutionally in 1918 to print money and manage our economy, an economy that has been in collapse since 1918 except for times of war, it took years for the real “depression” to kick in.
Perhaps you can find a few union leaders, some college professors and an environmental activist or two to arrest and detain in the basement of the local police station. Chances are your local police will be right there with you, patrol cars with lights flashing. In 8 years we went from full employment, peace, plenty, economic surplus to massive unemployment, endless war and total economic collapse while America’s money, that didn’t go overseas, went into the hands of a very few, 95% of whom had ties to the Bush administration.
Now we are going to see if that money, those billions, and the vicious stooges left can make Americans turn on each other rather than stop the theft, tax some of the freeloaders and put Americans back to work.
