Because on December 12, 2000, the United States Supreme Court nullified the results of a national election and installed George W. Bush as president. And then I saw millions of my fellow Americans deliriously happy the Rule of Law was broken by the Supreme Court of the Land so "their guy" could ... "win."

That's when I knew partisanship had ultimately won out over reality. More Americans believe in angels than election fraud. If millions of Americans could turn a blind eye to a stolen election, simply because their side stole it, and then have that coup legitimized by not only the Supreme Court ... but by all of MainStreamMedia " then I knew the country I lived in was not the land of my birth.

I can't emphasize this enough. Millions of Americans were ecstatic that George W. Bush won regardless of how he won. Unquestioning blind partisanship was more important than the law to these people. But more ominous was MainStreamMedia ratifying the coup. At that moment Corporate Media proved they were committed to the destruction of our democratic republic.

That was pretty scary to witness. We've all heard of similar ham-fisted tactics used in banana republics south of the border " but this was happening " here.

That's when I began formulating my Crazy Stupid People Theorem. Whoever thought the Supreme Court's decision was part and parcel with a "Normal Transfer of Power" was either Stupid, Crazy, or ... Evil. Americans who didn't know it was essentially a coup were either Stupid, or Crazy, or a little bit of both. If anyone knew it was an outright theft of Americans' votes ... and they were perfectly ok with that ... well ... what else could you call it other than Evil? The subversion of our right to choose our elected representatives strikes at the heart of our country's founding principles. But again, and this is what continues to confound me, millions of Americans thought it was just fine and dandy.



Along with millions of sane Americans ... I didn't "Move On." I could not understand why it was so important the institutions Americans trusted most to protect its freedoms and principles had crammed George W. Bush down our throat.

Then 234 days into Bush's first term as president ... the attacks of September 11th 2001. And from that day on ... everything the Bush/Cheney regime did to distort and transform the United States of America into something ... unrecognizable ... was because of 9/11. It all came down to 9/11 -- period. The buck stopped there.

And as we were all walking around in a daze, coated with the ash of human beings and pulverized concrete, we were spun into the Ultimate War Crime; wars of aggression. As Chris Hedges wrote,

"... We became what we abhorred. The deaths were used to justify pre-emptive war, invasion, Shock and Awe, prolonged occupation, targeted assassinations, torture, offshore penal colonies, gunning down families at checkpoints, massive aerial bombardments, drone attacks, missile strikes and the killing of dozens, and soon hundreds, and then thousands, and later tens of thousands, and finally hundreds of thousands of innocent people."
Then the dawning realization ... the 9/11 trigger mechanism that caused Hell on Earth for the people of Afghanistan and Iraq " was a grotesque lie. This was the ultimate horror piled upon horror.

Hundreds upon hundreds of statements from members of the Senior Military and Intelligence Services, Law Enforcement, Government Officials, Engineers, Architects, Pilots and Aviation Professionals, Professors, 9/11 Survivors and Family Members, Artists, Entertainers, and Media Professionals, are on record saying the Official Account of 9/11 is: "False," "Impossible," "A Bunch of Hogwash," "Total B.S.," "Ludicrous," "A Well-Organized Cover-up," "A White-Washed Farce," "Absurd," "Fatally Flawed," "Not Possible."

The lies the Bush/Cheney Regime told us that led our country into The Ultimate War Crime were predicated upon the lies the government previously told us about the attacks of 9/11.

As Ralph Lopez wrote,
"The biggest problem with the 9/11 Truth Movement is where it leads: a place dark and evil beyond imagination. " when hundreds of American military officers, pilots, engineers, and CIA veterans stepped forward to say they believed the official story to be a monstrous lie, I was shaken to the core. ... The conspiracies led to the deep dark hole that we are ruled by criminal psychopaths."
This is about as bad as it gets. We knew the government covered up how and why 3,000 people died on 9/11, and then went on to use the attacks as an excuse to do everything we find reprehensible today. And again ... corporate media ran cover for the government.

If we can't believe the government's cover-up, we're left with three options:
Conclusion One: They Made It Happen.
Conclusion Two: They allowed it to happen.
Or ...
Conclusion Three: The attacks of 9/11 were possible because of massive incompetence on the part of the Bush/Cheney Regime.
If Incompetence is the least offensive rationale to explain the actions of the Bush/Cheney regime, then why has there been no accountability?

Involuntary manslaughter is an unintentional killing that happens during the commission of a misdemeanor or because of gross negligence or carelessness. According to Federal sentencing guidelines, Involuntary Manslaughter is punishable by 6 years in prison.

Shouldn't someone (or a lot of someones) from the Bush/Cheney Regime be prosecuted for the gross negligence that led to the deaths of almost 3,000 people? Not in post-9/11 America.

Some 45 years ago I became aware of the fact that the government of The United States was trying to kill me. I wasn't paranoid or anything. I mean I knew the government wasn't out to kill me personally. They just wanted to kill as many Vietnamese (more...)
