9/11: CFL Fumbles, Dems Run With It

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Many 'Truthers' in CFL ranks

Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty (CFL) have worked tirelessly for freedom and for the restoration of the Constitution.  A progenitor of the Tea Party movement, its message of anti-statism and personal liberty has come to undeniably influence a major rebellion against Big Govt.  A populist denunciation of corporatist fascism is apparent in the 2010 midterm elections.

Born amid neoconservative betrayal of GOP principles, the CFL is the real hope and change to stop endless wars of aggression and occupation.  It has been singularly outspoken and defiant against the spurious “War on Terror” inspired police state. 

However, as in every classic epic, the hero has a fatal flaw that will prove to be his undoing later in the story.  For Ron Paul and the CFL leadership, the obvious Achilles heel is their silence on the truth of 9/11.  Dodging this issue in the obsession to win elections will prove to be a costly tactical error.  The evidence of 9/11 being an inside job abounds.  Further, to even the casual student of history, it is a blatant repeat of a “burning of the Reichstag” to terrorize the population into submission to tyranny and illegal wars of conquest.  It is the 800 pound gorilla in the living room we pretend is not there.  No, actually, it’s the halfwit cousin that always ruins the family reunion, but we keep inviting him because we think it’s the right thing to do.

Thanks to the present Faux News induced conservative mindset, the right thing to do for Republican Party candidates is to talk tough on terrorism.  If they don’t.., well, the fear of losing their power base eclipses any sincere motive to stand by a commitment to freedom.  In large part, the 2010 elections will be defined as a substantial boost for neocons repackaged as Tea Party patriots and as a disappointment for those hoping to stop the New World Order. 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010                    
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11

No surprise here.  Backed into a corner, career Democrat politicians, facing the prospect of pink slips, will be looking closer at 9/11.  A false flag event occurring under a Republican administration, it is ripe, and waiting, to be exploited by desperate progressives witnessing their demise.  Rest assured, though, any new investigation instigated by the left-wing of “The Powers That Be” will be a whitewash as much as the original 9/11 Commission Report .  Truthers need not get excited.

The real tragedy lies in the fact that Dr. Paul and the hierarchy of the CFL have dropped the ball.  Democrats will use 9/11 to demonize all Republicans; neocon, Tea Partier, and Paulista, alike.  Ironically, the activists,  to whom it was incumbent upon to expose and destroy the New World Order, have handed 9/11 to those that are imposing a controlled and regulated society.  9/11 will be a tool for merely bashing Bush, the Republican, and not a rightful rallying point to expose and defeat the financial power elite.  Hopefully, this recent announcement by Colorado Democrats will spur freedom lovers to do the real right thing.

[1] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010                                                      
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11
 The 2010 Colorado Democratic Party platform, approved by the 146 member platform committee states:  “The Colorado Democratic Party calls for the establishment of a truly independent Grand Jury and public investigation in order to find the truth of the September 11, 2001 attacks.”  This controversial plank was added to the State Democratic Party Platform after evidence supporting the critical need for a new investigation was presented at several caucuses in 2004, 2008, and 2010.  The citizens who presented arguments for a new investigation at their precinct caucuses are signatories to the Architect and Engineers for 9/11 Truth organization (ae911Truth.org) which calls for a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. The quality of evidence contradicting the official 9/11 story is substantiated in part by the 2010 Platform Committee Chairman Hal Bidlack’s statement: “ ….this platform represents the consensus of the 2010 Platform Committee, guided by the results of county assemblies across our state.  

The folks who worked tirelessly on the Committee can rightly be proud of their efforts, and deserve our special thanks.” (Bidlack’s statement can be found on page one of the 2010 platform)  In the upcoming Colorado election, Green Party U.S. Senatorial candidate Bob Kinsey and District One U.S. Representative candidate Gary Swing have publicly stated they would support a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.  Clarifying information can be found at: www.ae911Truth.orgwww.911PressForTruth.comwww.911Truth.orgwww.911Research.wtc7.net,www.stj911.orgwww.911Review.com, and www.BuildingWhat.org.

Chomsky, Chossudovsky, and Controlled Opposition

October 8, 2010 Leave a comment

In a recent article for GlobalResearch.ca, Michel Chossudovsky cogently describes how the present day oligarchy creates and manipulates its own opposition.

Acknowledging the propaganda model of “manufacturing consent”, posited by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky, Chossudovsky goes further to fill in more of the picture with the concept of “manufacturing dissent”.  Some of his observations include:

“Under contemporary capitalism, the illusion of democracy must prevail.  It is in the interest of the corporate elites to accept dissent and protest as a feature of the system inasmuch as they do not threaten the established social order.  The purpose is not to repress dissent, but, on the contrary, to shape and mould the protest movement, to set the outer limits of dissent.”  

“To maintain their legitimacy, the economic elites favor limited and controlled forms of opposition, with a view to preventing the development of radical forms of protest, which might shake the very foundations and institutions of global capitalism.  In other words, “manufacturing dissent” acts as a “safety valve”, which protects and sustains the New World Order.”

“The mechanisms of “manufacturing dissent” require a manipulative environment, a process of arm-twisting and subtle cooptation of individuals within progressive organizations, including anti-war coalitions, environmentalists and the anti-globalization movement.”

“The inner objective is to “manufacture dissent” and establish the boundaries of a “politically correct” opposition.  In turn, many NGOs are infiltrated by informants often acting on behalf of western intelligence agencies.  Moreover, an increasingly large segment of the progressive alternative news media on the internet has become dependent on funding from corporate foundations and charities.”

Chossudovsky goes on to reveal:  “The economic elites –which control major foundations– also oversee the funding of numerous NGOs and civil society organizations, which historically have been involved in the protest movement against the established economic and social order. The programs of many NGOs and people’s movements rely heavily on both public as well as private funding agencies including the Ford, Rockefeller, McCarthy foundations, among others.”

In other words, if a few disruptive thinkers see through the media/educational propaganda façade and succeed in waking the rest of the herd, the elite will take a proactive approach and guide the rebellion into results that benefit them.  Moreover, the truism, money talks, bullshit walks, is readily applied here.

Perceptive, he also points out that funding and maintaining a ‘citizen watch group’ legitimizes the watched group in the public’s mind.  Generous, the mugger can now invite the victim to sit down at the table and, well, you know.., work things out.  Textbook dialectics.

While funding, and other forms of direct interaction with the controlled opposition by the ruling class, are well explained and documented in the article, a question remains.  Can money alone buy a mindset?  Can bribes induce a specific ideological perspective?  The “politically correct” opposition does not begin with a payoff.  It begins at a more pervasive level.  The leaders of a movement can be bought.  The mass followers, however, can only be indoctrinated.

The older dictators fell because they could never supply their subjects with enough bread, enough circuses, enough miracles, and mysteries. Under a scientific dictatorship, education will really work, with the result that most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution. There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.  Aldous Huxley

Huxley understood the power of indoctrination and propaganda.  For generations, government education (public schools) and the mass media have existed to serve the interests of its final owners – the transnational corporations.  An epistemological cartel serves the scientific dictatorship.  It is vital to the corporate-banker complex to maintain a homogenous market of predictable credit-debt consumers yet, oppositional dichotomies must be ‘shaped and moulded’ to create division and polarization.  Non-issues become issues.  Non-issues often adorn the banners of permitted protests.  Politically correct non-issues provide the illusion for superficial revolutionary change.

The words, “conservative” and “liberal” have lost currency as meaningful political labels.  Where once a Conservative defended the monarchy, he now defends limited government.  Where once a Liberal agitated against monarchy, and for individualism and free enterprise, he now defends the status quo of statism and socialism.  Both words are bandied about and, at best, used as a generality – a catch-all when definitive description is too much of a chore.  Add to the mix, “neoconservative”, and we now have a politician giving campaign speeches about the virtues of limited government and the prudent need to extend the Patriot Act.    

The popular cultural dichotomies that the education/media complex have programmed us with, such as, pro-life and pro-choice, Gay and straight, creationist and evolutionist, and so on, are superfluous to the fiat money debt-slave Ponzi scheme, i.e., the foundation of the New World Order.  Guns or butter?  It doesn’t matter.  Government entitlements for both increases social debt and private bankster profits.  Wedge issues are employed to keep us busy in our common slavery.  Successful political gains won by either side are heralded as “revolutionary”.  Change happens, yet nothing changes.  Seats are rearranged in the prison cafeteria.  It’s the “safety valve”. 

Lest Focus on the Family Christians or pro-choice atheists might forget the other and seriously question global empire, both can stay contented world citizens and, at the same time, enjoy the elation of righteous partisanship.  The fake drama of successive Democrat and Republican electoral victories salves the reality of the bipartisan agenda to serve the globalist paymasters.

Conveniently, non-issue dichotomies serve as devices to sabotage incipient populist rebellion.  We have witnessed the devolution of the Tea Party.  Beginning as an anti-tyranny movement, it had strong common appeal to values shared by rank-and-file Democrats and Republicans.  Now, it is nothing more than a faction within of the neocon GOP.  Orwellian War-on-Terror hype and Islamophobia have seemingly neutralized any populist challenge to the banker war-for-profit agenda.  The duopoly dictatorship has absorbed the threat to its existence and remains intact.  One day, historians may summarize the upcoming November, 2010, elections as a contest between career politicians and their opponents, exploiting Tea Party anger, hoping to begin careers.

Amid the clamor against Obama style Big Govt totalitarianism, the voices for anti-globalization and restoration of the Constitution must stay consistent, clear and nonpartisan.  The obsession to support any Republican, who sermonizes about “limited government”, should be examined:  Does he mean limited government for the people, or does he mean limited control for Wall Street and the transnational banker cartel?  Follow the money.  The insurance industry is contributing more to Republican candidates than to Democrat candidates:

.., having backed the Obama health care legislation because it forced 30 million Americans to buy insurance or face fines, the insurance industry wants a Republican-controlled Congress to write more business-friendly rules for the new coverage, so that it can offer cut-rate, high-profit plans to this new captive market.  Patrick Martin

The November elections will bring to the table freedom issues on a scale unprecedented in recent history.  We cannot, however, compromise principles merely to see victory for a “libertarian” candidate.  Real revolutionary change rarely occurs by ballot.  Most often, it occurs when the people, en masse, decide to make their own destiny.
