Fantasy terror threats conceal real plan to reduce population
The battle for reality
By John Kaminski
While watching the inane vice-presidential debate the other night, I
nearly swallowed my gum when I heard vice-presidential challenger
John Edwards say, "I agree that we needed to invade Afghanistan." I
had had pretty much the same reaction earlier when his running mate
John Kerry had informed a worldwide TV audience that, despite the
high number of innocent people killed in Fallujah and other cities,
he would attack Iraq "much harder" than the current mass murderer in
charge of America's latest immoral war.
This demonic double whammy hammered home in my mind that for the U.S.
election of 2004, there is no real opposition, no genuine choice,
only differences in styles of mass killing, and a message to the
world that America is united behind its curdled policies of utter
injustice and contempt for everyone on the planet.
The absence of a presidential candidate who would even begin to admit
to the truth of America's lies dooms us here at home to a dark future
of permanent war, and the rest of the world to random extermination
depending on the resources they may possess that others more powerful
The indelible message to the world is that since there is no
candidate calling for actual peace and an accurate understanding of
the processes now turning the world into a shooting gallery, that all
Americans unanimously favor this all-out push toward world
domination, and preemptive obliteration of all who stand in their
But is this really the case, or is this merely what America
mainstream mass media say is the case? In other words, do we as
supposedly free people really control our own destiny, or do others
control it for us in our names?
While it seems true that the peace coalition in the United States
seems miniscule in this era of increasing corporate control of the
mind, it is perhaps instructive to look at the behavior of the
American people before and during past wars to get a better idea of
what's actually going on here and now.
I am reminded of the trenchant essays of Scott Nearing in 1916, when
he pointed out that Woodrow Wilson was the peace candidate who vowed
to keep us out of the European war, then shortly thereafter, after a
hysterical newspaper campaign vilifying fictitious German baby
eaters, got us into the War to End All Wars.
Or the behind-the-scenes manipulation of Japan which compelled it to
invade Pearl Harbor, which Franklin Roosevelt then used as an excuse
to attack Germany.
Or the famous Gulf of Tonkin incident which 40 years later we learned
never happened, but at the time was used to rationalize a U.S.
invasion of Vietnam that produced millions of deaths in a pointless
war that to this day no one can adequately explain?
Or the young lady, later learned to be employed by the Hill &
Knowlton ad agency, who came to Washington to tell the world that
babies were being ripped from their incubators by Iraqi soldiers in a
campaign to convince Americans that we should start bombing Iraq.
That now-disproved bit of theater happened almost 15 years ago, yet
we have not stopped bombing Iraq ever since.
How many of you out there still believe that you actually control
what happens in your own lives? And how many of you have reached the
point where you have decided the time is long past that something be
done about this?
The controlling mechanism of this present burst of American
aggression throughout the world is of course the tragedy of 9/11, an
apparent attack by foreign extremists on American landmark that to
this day has never been adequately investigated or explained.
And yet, the American people have by and large accepted their
government's clumsy story without a peep of a demand for
documentation, provable evidence, or a thorough investigation. Why?
The great 9/11 coverup must be considered in the context of previous
political events in which the American people accepted the facile
lies of its leaders without demanding more information or an honest
accounting of these extremely suspicious events.
Or, more succinctly, had Americans demanded more forthright
explanations of the three big assassinations back in the 1960s JFK,
RFK and MLK it is very likely that none of these subsequent
catastrophes to the American conscience ever would have happened. But
we didn't. And we still don't.
As a result, the war machine rolls on, with the mayhem creeping ever
closer to home.
Almost no one I know of believes the official version of what
happened in the murder of President Kennedy. After 40 years of
discussion, it seems like Michael Collins Piper's "Final Judgment"
furnishes the final word on the matter, that JFK was dusted because
he demanded Israel open its nuclear facilities for inspection, and
that he wanted to diminish the power of the Federal Reserve, so these
two entities got together and concocted an elaborate scheme to blame
a CIA groupie for the crime and used a CIA hit team to do the deed,
with the fatal shot actually being fired by the driver of the
presidential limo. You haven't read that in the New York Times
lately, have you?
Once JFK's successor LBJ took over, there was a rapid rise in the
amount of money funneled to Israel, a trend that since has never
diminished, even though Israel destroyed an American ship (another
famous noninvestigation) and basically took over the American
political system through bribes and blackmail. Again, no mainstream
media coverage of that.
Jump to the 1990s, right after the Bush family completed its
plundering of America's savings and loan industry, adding billions to
the family bank account. Not much in the newspapers about that, and
certainly not the real story.
The 1990s began with the invasion of Panama (actually it was `89),
about which NBC reported 45 Panamanians died, but an Oscar-winning
documentary later revealed a death toll of 4,000.
Then came the Gulf War, when the U.S. told Saddam Hussein it was OK
to invade Kuwait, but later bombed the hell out of him for doing it.
There was some coverage of this, but most Americans didn't pay
attention to it.
Then came World Trade Center 1, where two FBI informants gathered a
couple of other Egyptians together to drive a truck full of
explosives into a New York City parking garage. America's mainstream
media called it a terrorist attack.
Then came Waco, which was kind of like Vietnam, in that today no one
can really explain why it happened or what was the dark secret behind
the government's massacre of 84 (or 103) men, women and children who
just happened to be esoteric religious fanatics. The only thing most
of know for sure is that the government lied before, during and after
the event, and the mainstream managed to cover it up, despite
covering it live.
Then an FBI sniper fired a bullet through the head of a young mother
holding her baby, and the mainstream media said the government was
fighting a white supremacist terrorist in Idaho. The sniper later
received a medal.
Then the Murrah Building in Oklahoma exploded and the government
blamed a glazed-eyed white Patriot for doing it. Funny how McVeigh
supposedly used a truck full of fertilizer parked outside the
building, yet the building exploded outwards. But again, mainstream
media and the federal judges ignored all the contrary evidence and
quickly (supposedly) fried the fingered felon.
Six years later came 9/11, and most Americans have never even thought
about the facts that their government quickly destroyed the evidence
and never NEVER! conducted an investigation into how those
buildings fell and WHO did it. The government simply named the
perpetrators it chose to name (all of whom probably were using false
identities), and began making war on other countries which had no
clear connection to the fingered false identities.
What is wrong with this picture? And worse, what is wrong with the
American people that they have conceded control of their own
destinies to a process and a government that is so clumsily
incompetent that it can't even invent believable stories for their
citizens to swallow? And yet we swallow, endlessly, pathetically.
Do you suppose it's TV? If people can sit and watch the lame
imitations of life they see on the boob tube and think this is
actual, real life, can they swallow their government lying to them
and believe it's the truth? Is that what's going on here?
Or is it the schools? Are our school curricula so manipulative and
mind-controlling that people who attend 12 years of U.S. schools not
only can't think critically but can't even identify complete lies
which are paraded before their faces?
Is this what is happening?
Whatever is happening, it is leading to the death and demise of
everything we hold dear.
The American manufacturing base has been destroyed and most decent
jobs are being shipped overseas because American labor has priced
itself out of existence.
Mass consumption food is no longer safe to eat because of food
additives and lack of government regulation.
You can't drink tapwater anywhere in America anymore, but President
Bush insists environmental regulations are too stringent.
Virtually all of America's vaccinations are tainted by mercury and
other harmful substances, which create brain damage in children and
sudden death in adults. Yet we line up, ever docile, to take them,
and the maladies they bring.
Our soldiers, when they're not being killed by an outraged enemy
fighting for its own freedom against their corporate oppressors, are
being killed by the ammunition they are forced to handle and the
vaccinations they are ordered to take. Still we wave our flags and
gladly sacrifice our children.
Wait ... this is a very long list; let's get to the point.
We have forfeited control of reality to our mass media. How many
times have you heard someone say, "I don't believe something is
really real until I see it on television. Then I know for sure it's
This is the new American paradigm, both a fear of independent self-
determination and a horror of not being part of the crowd. People are
afraid to think for themselves, and to question what is being rammed
down their throats as consensual truth.
It turns out what is being rammed down our throats is killing us, and
not thinking for ourselves will, in very short order, lead to our own
deaths, because the plan is to reduce the population to what they
call sustainable levels, and the chances are very good that you are
not part of that plan.
This all could have been avoided if somebody, way back when or even
yesterday, had had the courage to stand up and say, "This is not what
is really happening. You are lying to us." Said it to the media
and/or the government in sufficient numbers.
But we didn't. With each lie they get away with, the lies simply get
worse, the death toll gets higher. Now we've reached the point where
the government is openly trying to kill many of us, and we're sitting
there smugly saying, "Well, this doesn't really affect me."
Or "Perhaps some other people need to be excluded in the interests of
the health of the human race."
Well, Bunky, that person, whether you realize or not, sooner or
later, is going to be you.
You had a chance to stop it even now you do but you didn't, and
And all because you let other people tell you what reality really is.
The rule is .... if you can't make your own decision, they'll make it
for you. And surely you know what their decision will be.
Next time you speak with a politician, or a government employee, talk
as if your life is on the line. Because it is.
