Why all this interest in Port Security?

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   No comments
Apparently the Carlyle Group, "the Ex-President's Club" has bought CSX one of the biggest container ship transport companies on the seven seas. Now, I'm going to tell a little story.

Stick with me on this one because if you have no faith in the current "government," and further, the explanation of the 911 incident still sticks in your throat, then we need to consider some things.

In the past, many catastrophic events as 911, TWA 800, AMERICAN 587, have been usually excused as acts of terrorism or some other lame insult by the US Government.

Usually the Arabs either had something to do with it, or may have screwed themselves by taking responsibility.

Now I'm not prepared to let these Arabs off the hook for stuff they did, but methinks, the US doth protest too much.

During the Cold War, the US Government didn't need any excuse to funnel trillions of taxpayer dollars into companies that were engaged in production of various forms of weaponry, ships, aircraft, and space based military equipment such as spy satellites that can read license plates from space, as well as see movement of troops, and WMD across borders.

People were willing to swallow the government's bilge as if a smooth liquor. There sure were corporations willing to suck that money up too. Lockheed Martin, MacDonald Douglas, Sperry Rand, General Electric, Morton Thiocol, to name but a few.

Contracts were so deep, you'd have to do the breast stroke to get through them.

But we had them nasty Russkies to deal with, and them damned chinks too! (no offense to my Asian Brethren!) "Commonism" (Communism) and commies was everwar!!!

As the Republicans especially, laughed their asses off, the multibillion dollar contracts were rolled out faster than toilet paper. But then, Ron won the cold war! Or so the Republican's seem to think. Actually Mikhail Gorbachev is the CHIEF architect of the end of the Cold War.

Anyway, back to the story. With comparative peace in the world, except for little brush wars the US tried desperately to keep starting, these major Arms Manufacturers and corporations that made their life blood off of war, such as the Carlyle Group, Halliburton Raytheon, and a few others began to have trouble breathing and experiencing spontaneous explosive bowel movements.

No war!!!, God help us!!, what'll we do!!!? Well, clearly Ron wasn't going to be of much help, but George HW Bush damned sure was. I'll bet you didn't know Little Georgie almost got fired by the Carlyle folks!! He went to Alabama to avoid a foot in his ass!!

If you have any doubts about the events of 911, then the fact that the Carlyle group whose lifeblood is the defense industry is buying one of the largest container ship businesses in the world should cause you to at least think.

First there is an increasing body of data, factual and evidential, that the WTC debacle was the kickoff for Iraq. The entire multi-trillion dollar Air Traffic Control and Defense system FAILED ENTIRELY! That is utterly unacceptable, and unbelievable, because it didn't happen.

It was arranged. For those that are still having trouble with this, then you need to have a look at Von Kleist's "911 - In Plane Sight." The War in Iraq is going badly, horribly in fact, and George is still throwing threats around like shells on sunflower seeds.

No doubt there are people in these United States who'd still fall for a "terrorist" attack, even if staged. Currently, the spotlight is on borders and Container Ships. I was in just such a container the other day looking for some old tires for my truck.

Mr. Bohne is a clockmaker and activist. He HATES the US Government, and without stretching the truth (reality) will do anything to dig up dirt on any of these bastards, as long as it's REAL dirt. "the first man to raise his fists, is the first (more...)
