is a Nation with a mission - and that mission comes from our most
basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire.
Our aim is a democratic peace - a peace founded upon the dignity and
rights of every man and woman."~~Emperor George the III
Once upon a
time in the Evil Empire, there arose to the Most Powerful Office in the
Land, a very stupidly evil man named, George Walker Bush (the III George
of the Empire).
the III had been a less than mediocre student in school; he failed in
every business that he tried to operate and as governor of one of the
far-flung provinces of the Evil Empire called Texas, he was an
unmitigated disaster. The axe of his executioner swung wildly and he
dismantled the education system while ruining the environment.
Walker Bush was not much different that any other Ruler of the Evil
Empire in his Evilness, but the arrogant stupidity of his Evilness began
to turn many of the Subjects of the Evil Empire off. What was also so
different about George the III was that he stole the office in not a
subtle coup, as in previous times, but in an obvious coup that ripped
any semblance of democracy to shreds.
the first year of the Reign of George the III, the Evil Empire was
attacked because of its Evil Ways around the globe and George the III
and his Consort, Richard the Sick-Hearted, sent the Armies of the Evil
Empire to various regions of the planet to murder, rape and pillage,
thus causing more hatred and resentment towards the Evil Empire, and
anon, the Subjects of the Evil Empire also became very restless.
Subjects of the Evil Empire rose up in great numbers to oust George and
Richard, but the Royal Ass-wipes in the Parliament refused to depose
the dictators until the appointed time that they were to leave the
Highest Office in the Land.
and Richard returned to the comfortable lives of the Evil Empire's
Nobility, but when they left, they left two wars raging and an economic
crisis that was the worst that the Subjects had experienced in
and in the Year of the Lord 2008, an Angel appeared unto the Evil
Empire (on CNN) and said: "Rejoice, you highly favored Ones! The Lord is
with you. Blessed are you among Nations!" And unto the Evil Empire was
given a savior: Barack Obama.
Subjects in the Kingdom of Democrats did rejoice with great rejoicing
and the memory of the trials and tribulations of the last eight years
receded from Memory -- although the trials and tribulations remained.
the Kingdom of the Republicans, though, the same trials and
tribulations that Blinded them during the reign of George the III and
Richard the Sick-Hearted miraculously appeared to them and they became
most distressed and formed their rage into Tea Parties where no actual
tea was served, along with the stupidity and racism.
What is the point of this above Fairy Tale? The US is a Mythocracy where the puppets in apparent leadership roles dance to the whims of the real rulers of this country: the Corporatocracy:
Basically, what Economic Hit Men are trained to do is to build up the American empire. To create situations where as many resources as possible flow
into this country, to our corporations, and our government, and in fact we've been very successful.~~John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hitman)
fact is not a crazy conspiracy theory and the US isn't the only country
run by the super-wealthy -- Anti-globalization movements like the ones
against the economic oligarchies of the G8, G20, WTO and World Bank
understand this simple fact.
at the recent democratic uprising in Egypt. The puppet of this global
oligarchy, Mubarak, hung onto to power for 18 days, even sending in
thugs to kill hundreds of anti-Mubarak protesters, stalling the
inevitability of his departure.
did Mubarak stay for so long? He told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that
he didn't even want to be "president" anymore, after 30 years of rape
and pillage. He stayed, according to a recent article in the UK
Telegraph, to make sure his wealth, estimated upwards of $70 billion, was secure. Mubarak was not about to beat a hasty retreat
without making sure every last penny was securely away from being frozen
by Swiss authorities or re-appropriated back to the people he stole it
was never a public servant of the people of Egypt -- public servants don't
amass Pharaoh-sized fortunes. He was given billions of pieces of silver
to betray his people and the people of Palestine with this blood money.
oligarchy's hand-picked, hand-puppet in Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, and
his family sit on a goldmine for them and their masters: vast mineral
deposits and the CIA-opium trade. According to Wikileaks documents
released late last year, the US is "distressed" at the corruption in
Afghanistan and millions (if not billions) of dollars that flow into
Afghanistan from US taxpayers, and flow right back out of the country to
such places as Dubai, where Karzai and his cronies can be assured that
if they are chased out of Afghanistan by a popular uprising, their
wealth is secured. If the US is so "distressed" by all the corruption
and graft in Afghanistan, why is Karzai allowed to remain -- it's not
because he has been "democratically" elected in a process that is
blatantly fraudulent -- no, it's because he's a willing dancer with the
hand of the puppeteer firmly ensconced in his nether-regions.
are some nations that are able to remain relatively independent of the
global oligarchy and one such nation sits just 90 miles off the tip of
Florida: Cuba. Although
Cuba was used as a wedge between the US and the USSR during the Cold
War, it has never been a military or economic threat to us -- what it is
down there is a constant reminder to the Global Imperialists that, no
matter how tiny, there are still places that can remain free and
propaganda about Cuba is stunningly wrong and pathetically obvious, and
one doesn't have to dig too deeply in the mire to find out the truth. But ask yourself this: Why is the US obsessed with Cuba and the Castros
when it has supported too many dictatorships in Latin America to count?
Why was Allende overthrown in favor of the appalling murderer and
oppressor, Pinochet in Chile?
is the Empire obsessed with democratically elected and supported Hugo
Chavez in Venezuela, yet props up a violent Narco-State like Colombia?
