Smooth Sailing Till the Next Election? Maybe Not.

[T]he entire continuum of public and private life in the United States has been transformed by 9/11, the lengthy preparations for it, the ensuing cover-up, and the massive consolidation of authoritarian policies and institutions achieved in its wake. In short, I maintain that unless this phenomenon is exposed at its roots, the fundamental changes it has wrought will become permanent. That would constitute the death of the American republic.”

-Michael Ruppert, “Crossing the Rubicon”, page 14

We currently have an illegitimate, fascist war criminal administration in control of our government, that stole the elections that gave them that power, engineered an act of state sponsored-terrorism in order to remove all of the Rights that countless patriots have died for, and invade two nations in order to steal more oil and land for profit and imperial power. They have been torturing, illegally detaining and killing countless innocents over the past years, while bankrupting our economy to further concentrate the power in the hands of international bankers and corporations, who are their masters.

If all of that sounds ridiculous to you, you may want to stop reading now; you are probably too brainwashed for this information to be of any use to you. If however, you have not relied on the controlled corporate media for your information, and have seen and heard the quality evidence that supports these claims, read on.

I believe the time is critical now, because it is unlikely that these fascist murderers are going to leave office quietly without perpetrating more violence and without using the tyrannical powers which they have given themselves in the name of “The War on Terror”. Why would they pass laws streamlining the process to create martial law, forced vaccinations, detentions without trial, etc. unless they were planning on using them? Do you, like so many others, think that Obama or Clinton is going to restore all our rights and save the planet from ecological destruction, and all we have to do is wait till November? That would be nice, but when we take into consideration what these sadistic fascists have already done, it is prudent to not assume they are done with their evil ways.

First off we have to IGNORE THE CIRCUS ON NPR/FOX, ETC. The presidential campaigns being the top story of the corporate media, starting over a year and a half before the 08 election, is a purposeful distraction from issues of real importance like the truth about 9/11 and the past two elections. This media circus would have us forget that all of our Constitutional rights have been removed, and that we now live in a police state, partially dormant. Never mind that over a million civilians have already been killed, never mind the women and children that were killed today with bullets and bombs paid for by your tax dollars, no, instead lets get the latest update on how many millions McCain, Clinton, Obama, etc. have raised. (Notice too, the lack of commentary on campaign finance reform, that might actually return us to a Republic where representatives would actually represent the People, instead of corporations). Never mind that the evidence is overwhelming that the past two presidential elections were rigged and 9/11 was an inside job, no, pay attention to the manufactured circus America, so that impeachment will seem like a ridiculous idea.

For a best case scenario, let's just assume the fascist war criminals occupying the white house wont do anything else for the next 10 months, besides kill more Iraqi civilians and American soldiers in a war based on lies, continue the torture, illegal detentions, etc. Isn't that enough reason to ACT RIGHT NOW FOR IMPEACHMENT? Why might you hesitate in agreeing? What possibly cold justify this tyranny and insanity? Only this: The official 9/11 story still holds in your minds as truth, and the upcoming elections as well, a false past and future, keeping you out of the present.


As outlined in the popular new book “The End of America” by Naomi Wolf, (along with many other books, documentaries, etc. on the topic) the Bush Administration has removed all of the freedoms we once had that made America “The Land of The Free”, modeling their policies after the Nazi regime and other fascist regimes throughout history.

The following is from a New York Times editorial, published February 19, 2007, titled “Making Martial Law Easier”:

A disturbing recent phenomenon in Washington is that laws that strike to the heart of American democracy have been passed in the dead of night. So it was with a provision quietly tucked into the enormous defense budget bill at the Bush administration’s behest that makes it easier for a president to override local control of law enforcement and declare martial law.

The provision, signed into law in October, weakens two obscure but important bulwarks of liberty. One is the doctrine that bars military forces, including a federalized National Guard, from engaging in law enforcement. Called posse comitatus, it was enshrined in law after the Civil War to preserve the line between civil government and the military. The other is the Insurrection Act of 1807, which provides the major exemptions to posse comitatus. It essentially limits a president’s use of the military in law enforcement to putting down lawlessness, insurrection and rebellion, where a state is violating federal law or depriving people of constitutional rights. The newly enacted provisions upset this careful balance. They shift the focus from making sure that federal laws are enforced to restoring public order. Beyond cases of actual insurrection, the president may now use military troops as a domestic police force in response to a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, terrorist attack or to any “other condition.” Changes of this magnitude should be made only after a thorough public airing. But these new presidential powers were slipped into the law without hearings or public debate. The president made no mention of the changes when he signed the measure, and neither the White House nor Congress consulted in advance with the nation’s governors.

The enforcers of the fascist state will say that our evidence of state-sponsored terrorism is illegitimate because the corporate media has not covered it. And since those that control the corporate media and prevent them from covering certain crucial topics, (like 9/11 Truth, Election Rigging, Banking/CIA/Illicit Drug Trade) are the very same enforcers of the fascist state, they believe that there victory is assured and nothing can stop them. However, they are incorrect. If enough people distribute the crucial information (especially about 9/11) independently of the corporate media, to their friends, family representatives, if independent media is expanded and supported (like with excellent new newspapers like the Rock Creek Free Press) and is also sent continuously to members of the corporate media itself, the perception will change and the intentional omission of this crucial information by the corporate media will be very clear. And so, the Big Lie will no longer stand, along with the authoritarianism of the corporate media, and accountability, justice and peace can finally be attained.

Here are 9/11 Truth resources that I recommend referring to in your letters, calls, etc. to government and media:
