by Colin Donoghue 9/27/08 This financial crisis is not caused simply by greed and uniformed consumers, as has become the Media's suggestion, it was manufactured, just like many previous financial emergencies of the past. See part 2 of for a good overview of the Central Banking/Federal Reserve System and how it creates market crashes to further consolidate wealth and power in fewer hands. There are other excellent books and documentaries on the Federal Reserve that can be easily found worth seeing, but that's basically the crux of it, and that's what Benjamin Franklin said was the main cause of the Revolution: the colonists desire to disconnect from the Central Bank of England and the dependence and exploitation they caused. Unfortunately Americans forgot about that by 1913 and were duped into thinking the Fed would prevent a future financial crisis, but of course that was not the case. The Corporate Media has been talking a lot about the Fed in recent months, about how they are doing all they can to keep the economy afloat, by "bailing out" huge financial institutions. This is simply "Cover My Ass" maneuvering by the Fed (and corporate theft of our tax dollars), so that the current crisis, which may get worse, will not appear (to those uniformed) to be the fault of the Central/International banks behind it all along. Also worth noting is Bush calling for a "secret meeting" with Obama (to tell him the elections might need to be postponed?), and McCain's talk of canceling the debates. Not that the debates are really anything worth watching, since it's controlled by the Dem/Republican corporate faction that wont allow the views (i.e. Truth) of individuals like Cynthia McKinney (current Green Party presidential candidate) or Ralph Nader to be heard. Why these news bytes are significant is because it is in line with the fascist/neo-con ideology that says democracy can be postponed during a prolonged (manufactured) emergency. I suggest you read some of Bush's "Executive Orders" that support various dictatorial powers and FEMA police-state powers (mass illegal detentions of citizens, etc.), in the event of a "National Emergency": Among the many "Anti-Terror" laws (Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, etc.) that were passed with little to no attention by the corporate media, were details such as allowing martial law and the suspension of elections altogether if another attack or major crisis emerges. You see, rigging them like they did in 2000 and 04 is much more difficult due to the strong activism that has occurred based on the vast amount of documented evidence showing how they did it, so now they wouldn't even bother with that, they'll just cancel the election, and institute martial law. We may be one step away from that now. What will that step be? Here are possibilities: 1) Complete collapse of US Dollar followed by the "solution" of a North American Union and the Amero currency. 2) Avian Flu outbreak (state-sponsored). 3) Another "terrorist" attack, possibly blamed on Iran, N. Korea, or their old CIA standby "Al Queda". (Illegal arrests and detention of activists, etc. who will be labeled "enemy combatants" is also likely in this scenario.) There is a lot of evidence to suggest all of these are possible, and even likely, due to the amount of preparation that has already been done by the neo-con/fascists to carry out each of them. (Look into each are you not familiar with that evidence.) The reason why not of it is really far-fetched is because it has been shown beyond any reasonable doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, and therefore something similar happening while the same perpetrators are in power is actually probable. It's important for the public to be aware of these possibilities, so that if one actually occurs, they wont be fooled again. If there is another trauma inducing event, please don't buy the line they feed you through their 4th Branch (aka the Media), like you may have bought the 9/11 Fairy Tale. Don't allow your Rights (and democracy) to be ignored in the name of their latest deception. Over 1 million Iraqi and Afghani civilians (a fact the corporate media ignores), and thousands of our troops, have already been killed on an operation based on lies. The only thing that can probably stop their insane imperial/police-state agenda, bring our troops home and get our Rights back, is the same thing I and many others have been saying for years now: Impeachment ( & expose the 9/11 Lie which is the foundation of their entire agenda, through quality sources of information, like these: a) Books: 1."The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions", "Debunking 9/11 Debunking", and "9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press", all by David Ray Griffin 2."The Terror Timeline" by Paul Thompson 3."Crossing the Rubicon" by Michael Ruppert 4."The War On Truth: 9/11, Disinformation And The Anatomy Of Terrorism" by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed b) Documentaries: 1."9/11 Press For Truth" (, 2."9/11 Mysteries" ( 3."Martial Law: 9/11 and the Rise of the Police State" ( c) Groups: 1.Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice: 2.Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth: It's an old game people and it's as simple as this: There have been a few that have always sought increased wealth and power no matter what harm that causes, and there have also always been the many that know there is much more to life than that and have no desire to harm anyone. The battle between good and evil, I'm sure you've heard of it. It's time to stop buying the lies of mass murderers and "strike at the root of evil" as Thoreau said, and in this time and this place, that means exposing the official 9/11 conspiracy theory for what is: pure bullshit.
