Blair, Bush, Bombs and Beelzebub What motivated Tony Blair? Was he an innocent lamb in the clutches of the wolf? Or was he searching for things out of his reach, unless he was mentored... or seduced? There was a man long ago tempted by the wealth. Power and pleasures of the material world and he walked away from them, and it cost him his life. Blair did not have that kind of courage. If he was a good PM, as some seem to think, then either the perceptions of his supporters is awry, or totally blind. The Masterly Sellout Five years ago, I said that PM Tony Blair, would fail the test Jesus passed. I said that of him, because in a dream, (for those who do not believe such things can happen, remember, it was a dream) an angel took me into the dark recesses of Blair's mind. I saw him frustrated because while he had prominence, and position, he was still an outsider to the corridors of Super-wealth. I saw him lusting over a home-his dream home, which he could not afford, however, which he was, in an effort to join the high-rolling, Jet-setters in this dream, hopelessly casting about for a way to make such Dynastic wealth. That opportunity came in the form of a cowboy who taught him that all they would have to do was find a reason to attack Iraq and steal the oil, and he could have that home, and maybe more. When Blair hesitated, Bush threw in the wealth-dynastic wealth in the form of The Carlyle Group. Bribery to Bush, is omnipotent. In his mind none can refuse, it-it never fails. He believes that because he never met a true believer. Bush offered Blair international power, dynastic wealth and prominence, which would out shine his present power and moderate wealth by many times. Here was Blair, in the dream, weak of resistance, because, he told himself, after all, not that many would die. He was told; it would be a "cake-walk," over in a matter of a few weeks. Little bloodshed, little damage, and then contracts to let to Brit-based companies like Bechtel and then his reward for staunch service-for staying the course. That Carlyle Group, with $15 Billion in Profits since 2003 for it's privately held shareholders, which at one time or another (See footnotes end of article) included; Bush, The Bin Laden's, the Saudi's, generals, admirals, former Republican Presidents and their sycophants, influential politicians from countries over which they've held sway, and a 15 year average of 34.7% profit, 12 times better than the major American corporations. As of the last few years, Carlyle is the number one private equity firm on the planet. In my dream, Tony Blair had bought the "Dream House," and he had spent his way into debt, going way over his head, living the high life which he could not afford, (Was he facing possible foreclosure?) perhaps, envying the Hilton's, Murdock's, Bush's, the Bin Laden's, the Saudi Princes and anyone with dynastic wealth, he would opt for dynastic wealth at any cost. Yes, no matter what he had to do to get it, no matter how many had to die and become maimed, he was desperate to live the lifestyle of a jet setter. He had Knighthood, position, but no real money, no dynastic wealth. I believe he was looking around for a way to sell his soul to fulfill his avaristic desires. In my dream, this was the way it was.

Was Blair hoping for, and perhaps even promised a job at Carlyle as his reward for supporting the war? Back then, I said that if so, he would be making far more than he ever made in politics, even as Prime Minister. He would start at a base salary, a pittance compared to the royalties, commissions and dividends, of 250,000 pounds sterling, about $500,000 per year. A few years after my prediction, last year, allegedly, Rupert Hamer reported that Blair had, indeed, been promised a job at Carlyle starting at 250,000 Pounds Sterling. That salary is just the tip of a financial iceberg, however. if true, as far as his immortal soul was concerned, he would have been better off had he become a male whore, and slept with every woman on the planet for money, than what he did do. During the Iraqi war, unbeknownst to Blair, the unpardonable occurred, a prophet was killed, before growing to manhood. All involved, under such circumstances are be condemned to Hell. In the background of the dream, which I wrote about in 2002, was a faded vision of Jesus being made the same sort of offer by Satan, of all of the advantages of dynastic power and wealth, The Temptation In The Wilderness. In the New Testament, Jesus turned it all down without hesitation. Blair, however, accepted with less. Jesus subsequently went to the cross; Blair went on to wealth, doing everything/anything in his power, to gain and keep, dynastic wealth. Now, as a result, Jesus, long dead, reigns in Heaven and Blair had better enjoy the wealth while he is around Planet Earth, because if the dream about the prophet being killed in Iraq before his revelations were made public, where Blair is going, the wealth and power, will do him no good, whatsoever. Bush, for his part, will inherit his father's wealth, a seat on Carlyle, and a comfortable life thereafter, but perhaps a very short one, if he is not incarcerated long before, and maybe facing capital punishment, by law, for treason. More than that, his fate after death, according to the dream is sealed. Yet... perhaps he can still escape earthly punishment. Perhaps, no-certainly, such a task as indicting a sitting president is formidable, but no president in my memory is more deserving of being brought to justice, but then Stalin never was, nor was Mao. I say formidable, not because of any personal strength of the Bushites, but because of the personal weakness of the Democrats. These are not the men who brought down Richard Nixon; they are not even close to the strength of character of those men. There is that, and then there is the Speaker of the House. She stands in the way-she appears much too weak, better suited to Tea Parties and Coffee Klatches than the work of warriors. She would be better, it would seem, as a non-working Mommy, than a person who must make hard decisions, decisions of Empire, unemotionally encumbered about such decisions as life, death, incarceration, risk and freedom. What is ahead? I have no clue right now-no predictions, no prophecies; I am operating now more out of my own poor mind. All I have to go on are the previous dreams, premonitions and other feeds, so perhaps it is time for a rest-a return to humor and to my next novel. I have laid out the possibilities facing freedom lovers. There is still darkness ahead and not much hope in those I see on the Democrats side of the isle. They lack the numbers, the resolution, and in many cases, the guts. Now we can only hope and/or pray. Meanwhile, we have the dilemmas. Ahead is a presidential election, more congressional elections, and judging by the timidity exuding from the Democrats, a losing strategy of waiting and do nothing, of treading water, of watching for the circling sharks to come closer, waiting to see if those sharks take a nap or attack-they will attack! Being saddled with this war heading toward the election of 2008 is a negative for the Democrats, a negative for the rest, but because of the hesitancy of the Democrats, now poorly advised strategically, good for the Neo-cons. The Neo-cons have no such, timidity, hesitating even for a moment, is normal for a man with a conscience, leaping in with both feet, is abnormal for most men, but not for men who lack a conscience. Would that some democrats especially one who wears skirts, could have learned at least, and certainly nothing else, that risk-taking, is a gift the Neo-cons have mastered and the Democrats have lost. Keep in mind what Mr. Putin said yesterday, in observance of Victory Day, in honor of the 27,000,000 killed by the Nazi's in WWII, "Moreover, in our time, these threats are not diminishing, they are only transforming, changing their appearance. In these new threats, as during the time of the Third Reich, are the same contempt for human life and the same claims of exceptionality and diktat in the world." This is reflecting a single theme, signaling that Russia is keenly aware of the danger to world peace the current rogue political evil that has gripped power in America. In Munich on Feb. 10, Putin struck out at the sinister power in Washington, in this way, "One single center of power: One single center of force. One single center of decision-making. This is the world of one master, one sovereign." The United States, Mr. Putin says, is seeking to establish a singular centralized polarity to replace the bipolar balance of power of which reigned since the end of WWII. Five years ago, when I finally interpreted my Nazi tanks dream of the mid 1970's, I called the Bushites, fascists. I was roundly criticized by the know-nothings of my "venomous" label. Now they act as if they were the initiators of such perception. God help us all. Oh, well, it was only a dream...
