SHARE Wednesday, February 27, 2008 Into the Valley of Catastrophe: Crusade of Surge and Siege, Part Four
The people of the Middle East do not hate the Empire for its freedom and liberties, nor for its way of life. They hate the Empire for its transgressions in the region, for its continued support for tyranny, for its hypocrisy in talking democracy and systemically supporting despotism, for its rape and pillage of both land and people, for its addiction to oil that has brought nothing but ruin to the people of the region.
SHARE Tuesday, February 26, 2008 Inside the Fires of Imperialism: Crusade of Surge and Siege, Part Three
The American flag has firmly been planted in the great majority of Middle East nations, with the Empire's military establishing permanent Crusader castles and garrisons and bases, in dozens of countries, to secure for the realm the spoils and rewards of the region. At present, in the Middle East is where the lifeblood of the Empire lies.

As long as Guantanamo remains the motives of fascists will survive, and the indifference of the American people will be assured. As long as its cages are occupied, as long as its torture rooms resonate with the screams of agony and suffering, Guantanamo will be the symbol of a new Amerika, one at war with the Arab and Muslim world, an Amerika at war with its people, and itself.

In Muslim lands they have found an oasis from which to plant and grow a modern day crusade, not to reclaim the Holy Land, but to simply claim the vast fields of the Devil's Excrement; not to rain freedom and democracy on uncivilized people, but to firmly plant permanence in strategic lands; not to bring Christianity to barbarians, but to violently force neoliberal capitalism down the throats of the Muslim world.

All that is needed for authoritarians and corporatists to complete their project, all that is needed for America to descend fully into the depths of Big Brother and complete surveillance and a thriving police state and martial law and tyranny and a final shredding of the Constitution, and thus our freedoms, rights and liberties, is another shock to our senses.
SHARE Monday, February 4, 2008 The Year of Living Dangerously: Part One of Two
If you are not alarmed at where, at present, the present course of the United States is invariably taking us, then you have not been paying attention, or you have abandoned the responsibilities of an informed citizen, preferring the comfortable warmth of ignorance to the absolute frigidity of a most ominous reality. In truth, you should be enraged at all that has transpired.

In the land claimed holy and promised the madness of humankind persists, extending the perpetual violence and oppression of the weak by the powerful. Palestine today tells a story of human evils past and present, of the worst actions capable of being manifested by the human phenomenon.

In the last century we battled totalitarianism; in this century we will battle corporatism. The war being waged against the People, by the real enemy, albeit a domestic one, is eroding democracy, liberty and our rights. It is making billions of people human cocoons living in indigence, slaves without futures, heads without intelligence, obedient to the commands of television and corporate marketing. This war is being lost.

Springing up in all corners of America, indeed, the world, the 9/11 Truth Movement grows and grows, unstoppable even in the face of continous smears and censorship, in spite of every obstacle the criminal element throws our way. Their methods no longer work, for Truth is a million times stronger than anything they can throw at us. It is the flame guiding our way, the shield granting us bravery. It is a new way forward.
SHARE Wednesday, July 25, 2007 America's Tomorrow
Already in control of government, possessing the technologies of private enterprise and the resources of governance, holding all the mechanisms by which to brainwash and manipulate the populace, their wallets thick with the Almighty Dollar, the tentacles of power and control omnipotent and omnipresent, corporatists have all the ingredients deeply entrenched to enact the next step in America's history.

To say the neocons should be sitting at The Hague, rotting away their existence, contemplating their crimes in perpetuity, locked away for centuries so they can no longer inflict carnage and evil on our world, is an understatement. This cabal of criminality, those responsible for 9/11 and the Iraq War, from the architects to the propagandists, should be forced to face trial for the human wickedness they have engendered.

Thanks in large measure to an overwhelming propaganda campaign by the neocon controlled corporatist media, an onslaught of manipulation upon the American populace has resulted in the acceptance of authoritarian tendencies in a large segment of the citizenry. These are the authoritarian personalities, and they are a danger to the republic.
SHARE Wednesday, May 16, 2007 Operation Iraq Forever
In spite of the apparent defeat in Iraq, the American leviathan, that corporatist element within the parameters of the state, that elitist cabal embedded in predatory capitalist markets, will not allow itself or the nation to be extricated from the country, for the price of such a calamity would be disastrous. The Iraq War was first and foremost a war for control of oil. Iraq has thus become a permanent American colony.

We must rescue the America we love from the duopoly ruining the country, its corruption and ignorance and indifference to the great silent majority becoming apparent each passing day. We must rid the airwaves of the vermin and the cockroaches who have sold their collective soul to the demons living among us. Both pillars of America have become corrupted beyond repair, becoming cesspools of waste onto themselves.

In the grand chessboard of geostrategic and geopolitical realpolitik, the invasion and occupation of Iraq served notice that the Empire was declaring the 21st century America's century, fully willing to embark on a most ominous journey of resource acquisition and control. Through 9/11, it served notice that the Empire had arrived, and that even its own people were expendable in pursuit of imperial hegemony.

It is reality, not hyperbole, to describe what is presently happening in Iraq as a new Holocaust, a new paradigm of devastation and destruction, of mass murder and horrific suffering. An entire nation has been made to implode, an entire society has been disemboweled. For a Holocaust does not need toxic chambers to count its dead, nor crematoriums to hide its victims.

The 9/11 movement is a truth movement, yet it is also a movement to change the system that has for too long dominated human society, usually for the worst. This movement has uncovered the truth, yet it must also alter or abolish the system itself. For what good does knowing the truth do if the same system that created 9/11 is allowed to once again roam freely in power and control?

The suppression of truth has long been among the highest priorities for the upper echelons of power and authority. For a minority elite that clings to power by the manipulation of the masses using an omnipresent cocktail of lies, deception, mass-produced ignorance and ingrained propaganda, the destruction of truth is an essential method of control. Such is the case regarding the events of 9/11

Let it be written by the sands of time that it was the men and women of the early stages of the 21st century that defied all obstacles and enemies of man, transforming human civilization into a catalyst for greatness, instigating a paradigm shift whereby a new dimension of human existence commenced.
SHARE Thursday, October 26, 2006 Collaborators of Catastrophe: Inside the Ministry of Truth
The creators of American reality, those propagators of charades and mirages who dwell inside the hallways of the Ministry of Truth – otherwise known as the Corporate Media – continue their dance of deception and whitewash, festering in their offices of propaganda, directing the narratives and the epics hundreds of millions of Americans consider truth, as always, protecting the hand that feeds them, the Establishment.
