Fast, Furious and Outrageous

Wayne Madsen has learned from his contacts within the Beltway intelligence community that Jared Lee Loughner is an “MK-ULTRA” programmed assassin and that US District Judge John Roll and Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords were targetted for assassination.  The reason for the decision to target Judge Roll and Congresswoman Giffords has to do with their knowledge

of the malicious and purposeful arming of Mexican drug gangs along the US-Mexico border by US intelligence agency assets in an effort designed to destablize the Mexican government.  This towards the end of making Mexico more dependent on US military aid and protection from its private security contractors.

A key quote from Wayne Madsen’s report follows.

“WMR has been told that in 2009, information about the CIA/Homeland Security/Napolitano smuggling operation came to the attention of three individuals, two members of Congress and a federal judge. The three were Arizona Democratic Representatives Giffords, Republican Representative Mike Conaway from west Texas, and Judge Roll. Giffords and Roll were working together on investigating the extent of the clandestine weapons and druigs smuggling operation and held some joint meetings with informants, one in north Phoenix, in 2009. Information on the investigation and informants was strictly limited to only a few trusted staffers and clerks for Giffords and Roll. In addition, Conaway was also being briefed by informants on the smuggling operation but since the death of Roll and the severe mental and physical incapacitation of Giffords from the shooting carried out by Jared Lee Loughner, said to be an MK-ULTRA-like trained assassin, he has gone silent in fear for his own safety. Loughner’s was declared mentally incompetent and there are reports, including one in Slate Magazine, that the U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield, Missouri, where Loughner is being held, pending a determination of his mental fitness to stand trial, is being administered psychotropic drugs in his Kool Aid.

In addition to receiving drugs to fund its off-the-books operations, the CIA weapons smuggling program is designed to arm the two main Mexican cartels — Sinaloa and Los Zetas — in order to destabilize Mexico. A violence-ridden Mexico makes it more dependent on U.S. military aid and, eventually, the country is seen by Washington as a future virtual U.S. protectorate, whose state PEMEX-controlled oil reserves will be available to U.S. oil companies.”

The Obama-nation

The “Honorable Michael B. Mukasey?”  At this juncture I could express shock, disbelief and horror at such a thought after reading former FBI Special Agent Colleen Rowley’s article available via Information Clearinghouse and also at the Huffington Post.  But I won’t.

Rowley takes exception that such a relic from the Bush Administration could be called upon by any academic institution, let alone one involved in the training of professional attorneys, to speak on the subject of ethics and the implementation of unethical, often illegal, policies.

Sadly, I am not surprised by any of this.  While it is nauseating, I cannot devote a scintilla of surprise at the depths to which professional psychopaths and their willing stooges will sink to defend what in the past lead to Nazi corpses swinging at the end of ropes, post World War II.

I could offer up a, “well played, sir,” to those fascist lackeys in the United States through which the entire Nazi Holocaust was both inspired and launched.  Those well-moneyed individuals not only executed an intelligent multi-generational conspiracy to propel wealth and power to its economic zenith in the late twentieth century, but, perhaps to their chagrin, they are singularly responsible for sending humanity to its ethical and moral nadir in the early twenty-first.

Well-played, indeed, as evidenced in today’s headlines that highlight the deprivation of children in Uganda suffering from “Zombie” disease; that highlight the widespread sexual abuse of children at the hands of the hierarchy of our most-respected churches; that lay bare a culture where honesty and forthrightness are punished while convicted felons anchor television programs that reach millions; that blast and stun human brains with irrelevant trivia, allowing these sophisticated players to prosecute their resource wars under cover of “diplomatic” darkness.

Meanwhile, Wall Street has never been wealthier, nor more profitable; the wealthiest among us have never been wealthier, nor more powerful; governments have never yielded so completely to the desires of the wealthy and powerful.  In fact, syndicated radio host Thom Hartmann declared today (March 21, 2012) that the suburbs surrounding the US capitol – Washington, DC – are now among the wealthiest in the United States, including Beverly Hills, California.  Entertainment, fantasy and those who cater to it, will soon take a back seat to those whose business is the mass-exploitation of human labor and the mass-extinction of every living species that stands between them and future potential profits.

Such is the oppression of efficiency, of fascism.

In the world I grew up through, such paucities of spirit were considered ethical and moral poverty.  Dwight D. Eisenhower would certainly not recognize the landscape that he left behind as he yielded power to a President who would die attempting to realize Ike’s vision for an America that would always hold fast its moral compass.  Such a vast problem of morality and ethical conduct has not been visited on humanity since the depths of the Middle Ages before the advent of the Magna Carta.

But before we attempt a resolution to our problems, we should first have a clearer understanding of the relevant history surrounding our present state of affairs – the contextual background in which our present moment in history is unfolding.

First and foremost, every human nervous system has limitations and tolerances related to cognitive dissonance – a term used to describe a collision between observation and belief.  It was because these limitations and tolerances, en masse, were exceeded that many hundreds of years passed before humanity accepted the reality that the Earth was not the center of the known universe, or even that the world was not flat, but a sphere.  Therefore, if I am unwilling and/or unable to believe, “my lying eyes,” my nervous system will not permit me to change my beliefs about the world in which I appear to live.  Historians who chronicled the rise of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany referred to this phenomenon as, “the Big Lie,” but the truth is that human beings can be stunned into believing excessive dishonesty.  In software development terms, it is possible to “overflow the buffer” of large numbers of human beings and drive them to cling desperately to beliefs that no longer match with the reality of even a casual outside observer.  This is the reason why no one in America understood how the German people could tolerate the atrocities committed by the Nazi war machine on their, “behalf.”  General Eisenhower made certain, though, that all of those atrocities were painstakingly recorded, photographed and cataloged because he knew the instigators of that nightmare, of this nightmare, would go to absurd lengths to deny that those events ever took place.  He likely also knew that the revelations of Marine General Smedley Butler were true and that it was America, not just Germany, who had been responsible for building the nightmare of Nazi Germany.

Secondly, no organization, family, church or trust whose wealth and power was established prior to the French Enlightenment ever believed in the tenets of democracy, or in the rule of society of the people, by the people and for the people.  A great deal of time, energy and effort has been placed since the establishment of the United States of America in its ultimate perversion and destruction.  One can only assume that those with the most to gain from the destruction of the American experiment would be those organizations, families, churches and trusts whose wealth and power originated in Europe and Asia during the Middle Ages.  These same institutions and organizations may choose to package their indiscretions as part of some larger philosophical context (e.g., the Hegelian dialectic), but the truth of the matter is that those who achieve power through conflict and ruthlessness have no intention of ever relinquishing their hold on power, or allowing the “rules of the game” that they have mastered to be changed by any circumstance or happenstance of evolution or revolution.  They see only the ruin they have visited upon others to be their fate should they lose their grip on power or control.

Finally, the destruction of democracy, of even a shred of what was left of the Magna Carta, has been vaporized not by some lackey of the Bush Administration – Michael Mukasey – but by the crowned prince of American “Just-Us,” Attorney General Eric Holder.  In a speech given to Northwestern University Law students on March 5, 2012,  Eric Holder preceded Michael Mukasey’s attempt at gagging Colleen Rowley with liquid sleaze of Orwellian Doublespeak by some two weeks.  Had Ms. Rowley finally had enough, or must we always yield to the fascist wearing a smiley-face button?

Legal analyst and scholar Jonathan Turley attacked Holder’s disingenuousness in this blog entry, and many others have done so as well, to no avail.

Americans appear to be satisfied that if they are to be killed by secret fiat that they can rest assured that they deserved to be, that the high and mighty government of these United States of America, LLC, took no pleasure in finally dropping the hammer on their mediocre existence.

…and ladies and gentlemen, we have long since passed the bar from “concerned citizens” to expressions of ultimate mediocrity beginning at about 1pm on November 22, 1963.

Clinton, Biden Betray Obama Over Egypt; Kerry Likely To Take State Department

Washington insiders are chattering about Hillary Clinton’s duplicity in dealing with Obama and Mubarak’s long-time CIA friend, Frank Wisner.  Apparently, Hillary was offering support to Wisner as if the President supported her policy.  However, Obama’s several phone calls to the Middle East explaining his political stand on Egypt suggest otherwise.

Missing from the subtext of Hillary’s duplicity is the power play she has undertaken in what amounts to a vote of “no confidence” for Obama and his policies.  The drubbing the Administration took in the November elections, the President’s ineffective response to Republican aggression in Congress and his rumored issues with depression also galvanized Hillary to support her own ambitions at the expense of the Obama Presidency.

Senator John Kerry has signalled to the Administration that he would accept the nod to take over for Hillary at State.

Before she goes, the President would be wise to weaken her and her husband politically before accepting her resignation.  Most certainly she plans to run against the President in 2012.

Happy Military/Industrial Complex Junta Day!

November 22, 1963, Friday, democratic government in the United States of America was murdered in downtown Dallas.

What we have learned since the sine quo non of white-wash investigations, the Warren Report, concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

1.        Lyndon Baynes Johnson, future President of the US, and H. L. Hunt (member of the Lamar Hotel, Suite 8F, Houston group) played crucial roles in the conspiracy to assassinate President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

2.        Jack “Ruby” Rubinstein worked as a Union informant for future President of the US, Richard Milhous Nixon from as early as 1947.

3.        George Herbert Walker Bush played a role in the assassination, a role requiring him and his wife to fashion more than one cover story to account for his whereabouts on this day in 1963.

4.        Dallas police officer J.D. Tippet, allegedly murdered by Lee Harvey Oswald, was also working for the Central Intelligence Agency.

5.        Had the assassination of the President not taken place on this date in 1963, Lyndon Baynes Johnson would have been indicted and probably convicted for at least one political murder in the State of Texas.

6.        J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, was involved in the assassination conspiracy, attending a closed-door meeting with Clint Murchison, George Brown (of Brown and Root), H.L. Hunt and Lyndon Baynes Johnson at his estate the night before the assassination.

7.        Lee Harvey Oswald believed he was involved in a counter-conspiracy to derail the plot to assassinate President Kennedy.

What we now know is that our current President, Barak H. Obama, has given George H.W. Bush the Medal of Freedom and carried more than a nominal amount of water for the political factions represented by George H.W. Bush.

Rebel, resist or sign this nation’s death warrant along with the conspirators.

Fit Hits Shan At 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Fit hits shan, shan generates sparks, sparks cause fire, Fotomat burns down, no film at eleven.

Joe Biden has been tasked to consider invoking the 25th Amendment against Barry Soetoro, our beloved Narcissist-in-Chief, Barak Hussein Obama. President Obama is allegedly using prescription anti-anxiety medication for weeks now and is also using his wife, mother-in-law and Valerie Jarrett to deflect his former key staff members from direct contact. For those unfamiliar with the viciousness of executive staff when a leader shows weakness, this means that the titular head of state is without portfolio (i.e. we’re screwed) and our nation could become a WalMart subsidiary at any moment.

I can understand Jarrett taking point to direct traffic while a devastated Barry reels from the revelations that he’s frequented male bathhouses in Chicago with Rahm Emmanuel, or that he was reared from childhood to be a Manchurian Candidate, but using one’s own mother-in-law against one’s own staff? There has got to be something in Marcus of Queensbury to address this wholly unfair and unprecedented use of “first strike” capability. What happens if al-Maliki decides to start using his mother-in-law against the US? Would Afghanistan follow suit? Could this unleash an unstoppable chain-reaction of mother-in-laws taking control of all heads of state at the same time? Oh, the humanity!

Like most males born under the sign of Leo, leadership runs skin deep. These folks talk a good game, but when the time comes to personally pull the trigger on someone’s sacred cow, a Leo male will often be found heaving in a janitor’s closet somewhere, afraid to come out and face the reality of their own inadequacy to the tasks they asked for and were promptly given. I can relate. I love Leo people. I always have a lot of fun with the Leos who have peopled my life for decades now, but they are born second bananas, loyal and true, not chief executives capable of inflicting martial discipline on a staff that has spun out of control.

Chiefs have to be able to stare across a lonely, frozen tundra of loose associations at possibly their oldest and dearest friend and be willing to cut them out of their inner circle without so much as a bead of sweat crossing their brow in public. Such lizard-like efficiency is the difference between 50,000 children starving in the cold each night versus 200,000; or Larry Leibowitz making 50,000 dollars a year versus 200 million and change we can believe in.

The job of President of the US as we the people have constructed it sucks so bad it whistles and warns healthy, intelligent people to get out of the tracks, a runaway train is coming. While no one could accuse Barry Soetoro of being a dumbass or a moron, he is most definitely not a healthy personality at the present time. His narcissism and perhaps long overdue paranoia have become a smoldering pathology that could send our first black President out of service because he is a little light in the belfry, not unlike Paul Revere.

On the heels of Jon Stewart’s confirmation that, yes, our country is indeed having a nervous breakdown and, yes, Jon’s older brother and head of the NY Stock Exchange would like us all to just calm down and enjoy the screwing we are all receiving at the hands of his family, we now have word that Barry has been sent out of country until everyone can decide what the hell it is we do here in America. Do we peddle fascism and the strident exploitation of the middle class, or do we just export jobs to third world countries for the benefit of our corporate sponsors?

Come on, America, decide who you are, already! Then we can let soul-brothah Barry know so that he can tell his mother-in-law to go kick some Republican ass up and down the National Mall.

Pain On Pain On Play, Repeating

I have these moments from time to time where I am dumbstruck by the absurdity of human behavior, usually my own. But these moments are usually

brief, they pass on and I am always confident that another moment will soon arrive.

Listening to the news on satellite radio this afternoon, I had a moment where “dumb struck” didn’t quite hit the mark. Neither did idiotic. It was an overwhelming feeling that my home planet, Earth I believe it was called, had been taken over by aliens. Aliens whose chief concern seemed to be keeping the remaining residents of the planet so totally distracted and confused that the vast majority of them would remain stunned while these aliens completed their takeover.

Who were/are these aliens and what was their purpose?

At one level – the level of action – it does not matter what their purpose is or was. We have had our brains so traumatically insulted and our social relationships so thoroughly polarized into “us” versus “them” categorizations in our communities that we can consider ourselves invaded by a foreign enemy. At that level, purpose is not relevant. The invaders must be removed and neutralized by whatever means necessary.

At another level – the level that generates the confusion – these aliens appear to resemble us humans in terms of form. They seem to have two eyes, two ears, a mouth, a nose, two locomotive appendages and two appendages designed for grasping and holding whatever the hell they want as tightly as they desire; but there are qualities to these individuals, I can only label them spiritual in nature, that render them totally inhuman, completely insane and almost evil – if I were to believe in such a thing. What is stunning is that these individuals know our language well enough to know how to subvert it, giving twisted meaning to words that rest at the core of our ability to form trusting relationships with each other. So while on the one hand I and a trusted friend might say, “I love you,” and we mean, “be at peace with all the joy your heart can sustain,” these aliens actually mean, “there is something I demand from you and I will not relent until you give it to me.” The insanity of these folks is that they see something physically viable inside our skins and they are ferocious enough to tear people apart while they search for what they seek. In the end, however, these human zombies sit in a pile of eviscerated flesh and blood, gorging themselves on what remains while on the lookout for still more people on whom they can demonstrate their “love.”

What was striking to me of what I heard on XM today was that there is even a debate concerning whether or not it serves the interests of humanity to tell one another the truth in any matter. The United States fought fascism tooth and nail in WWII, all the while proclaiming that the national security apparatus that the Germans had erected to serve their interests was anathema to democracy, anathema to truth and anathema to humanity. And yet we allowed these fascists, these Nazis, to infiltrate our own national security apparatus, convince us that our allies in our fight against them – the Russians – were among our worst enemies, and then proceeded to inform us that propaganda was truth and truth were the lies we told ourselves to sleep peacefully at night. The truth to these zombies, these eaters of human flesh, is that there has never been a moment in this dangerous world where sleeping peacefully was either wise or warranted and that we, the ones they refer to as, “useless eaters,” owe to them our very lives for their vigilance in our stead.

So when a lone, and altogether uncomfortable Netroots hacker, Julian Assange of Wikileaks, decides to publish 91,000 two and three year old documents about the United States’ occupation of Afghanistan, our national media and our national focus is directed at the “crime” of Assange and his anonymous contributor for telling truths our national security apparatus does not wish the public it allegedly serves to know. A similar outcry was heard when Daniel Ellsberg of the Rand Corporation saw to the publication of the Pentagon Papers, effectively ending the US propaganda efforts at home over the war in Viet Nam.

The moment of clear thinking I had today and would like to share comes in the form of a question.

“Why is telling the truth to each other considered reprehensible in our society?”

What sort of double-bind peddling, fascistic, Nazi-worshipping, goose-stepping baloney is this? This national shame over knowing the truth in any matter is not in any way an expression of American values; this is fascism that has crept up on us since the twilight of World War II and has succeeded in pinning us to a wall of our own stunned inability to act according to our wishes and our deepest values. It is not that we are apathetic and therefore we are bad people; we have been STUNNED and TRAUMATIZED into apathy by the well-monied powers that sought for the rise of fascism in the first place, that sought for the destruction of our democratic experiment almost from the first days of its inception in 1776.

A careful reading and study of history proves this point.

The truth is that there is no shame in telling the truth, even at the expense of embarrassing your government and placing its nefarious plans at risk. If the US wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq were waged for good and just causes, there would be no collective will to see the information about the filth that is war to ever see the light of day. Human beings, rather than their alien doppelgangers, do not work that way. Yet, even after a decade-long orgy of secrecy and misdirection by our alien invaders, the truth of our well-known misbehavior comes back to its makers. And they would like you and me, their willing human subjects, to absorb the burden of their responsibility for them, once again. As musician and lyricist Imogen Heap sings, this is, “pain on pain on play, repeating.”

Now we must do something about this, and I would strongly suggest we not play the “kill the messenger” game because we need these messages to keep our sail and rudder true to the winds of change blowing toward us. We have ten years of gooey lies perpetrated on us by aliens whose sole purpose in life has been the systematic enslavement and exploitation of human labor. They want a life beyond what they deserve, and the power to secure that lifestyle beyond what they can control. They are driven mad by a headlong pursuit for security even while they inhabit a planet whose own fiery end is assured as surely as it circles its own life-giving death star. In short, there is no guarantee of security granted anyone in the entire known universe, and yet we allow ourselves to be dictated to by mentally-ill psychopaths who believe that security is their exclusive entitlement.

If anyone wants to disassemble an internecine entitlement program for budgetary reasons, I suggest they begin here with the entitlement of the rich and powerful to occupy their positions of authority and leadership in this world of shadows they have manifested for us all. Tear down the walls of this hideous miscreation and we will at least be free to choose how we will all live. Wars and lies were never what any of us wanted in the first place.
