That the Bush administration would conspire with ‘rich men’ in order to perpetrate the capital crime of aggressive war and mass murder is nothing new. Rome attacked and invaded Dacia for its gold. The ’empire’ itself was sold by the Praetorian Guard to the Patrician Didius Julianus for Greek Drachmas –not worthless Roman sesterces. Is it so unusual that a bankrupt American empire would not attack and invade Iraq for its oil? Simply –that is what happened! ‘Rich men’ have always conspired to acquire and maintain their estates by all means legal and ‘ill’. Iraq was attacked because it had oil and Bush’s co-conspirators wanted it. In the second week of Bush’s illegal occupancy of the White House, Dick Cheney’s ‘Energy Task Force’ met to carve up the oil fields of Iraq. The stated objective was to “develop a national energy policy designed to help the private sector, state and local governments, promote dependable, affordable, and environmentally sound production and distribution of energy for the future.” Fancy words for ‘oil theft’ on a scale not imagined since Rome and, later, the Third Reich.
Judicial Watch, a conservative legal group, obtained a batch of task force-related Commerce Department papers that included a detailed map of Iraq’s oil fields, terminals and pipelines as well as a list entitled “Foreign Suitors of Iraqi Oilfield Contracts.”The papers also included a detailed map of oil fields and pipelines in Saudi Arabia and in the United Arab Emirates and a list of oil and gas development projects in those two countries.The papers were dated early March 2001, about two months before the Cheney energy task force completed and announced its report on the administration’s energy needs and future energy agenda.Judicial Watch obtained the papers as part of a lawsuit by it and the Sierra Club to open to the public information used by the task force in developing President Bush’s energy plan.Tom Fitton, the group’s president, said he had no way to guess what interest the task force had in the information, but “it shows why it is important that we learn what was going on in the task force.”Opponents of the war are going to point to the documents as evidence that oil was on the minds of the Bush administration in the run-up to the war in Iraq,” said Fitton. “Supporters will say they were only evaluating oil reserves in the Mideast, and the likelihood of future oil production.”The task force report was released in May 2001. In it, a chapter titled “Strengthening Global Alliances” calls the Middle East “central to world oil security” and urges support for initiatives by the region’s oil producers to open their energy sectors to foreign investment. The chapter does not mention Iraq, which has the world’s second largest oil reserves after Saudi Arabia.– H. Josef Hebert, Associated Press, Cheney Task Force Eyed on Iraq Oil
The ‘oil fields’ of Iraq were ‘carved up’ long before Bush would have the ‘pretext’ needed to attack, invade, and divide the spoils of war. I propose that Bush be allowed to refute that charge at a trial in which he is charged with numerous crimes including mass murder, high treason, aggressive war and common theft! The ‘official conspiracy theory of 911’ does not help his case. Nothing Bush has said about 911 is true and he has actively sought to block every effort to learn the truth. None of the so-called 19 ‘Arabs’ could pilot aircraft of any type. None of them could have pulled off the crime of 911. 911 was an inside job, Bush’s ‘Reichstag Fire’. The Nazis had gone back to the well.
The FBI has stated that there is no hard evidence to connect Bin Laden with 911. The ‘official’ conspiracy theory of 911 is an absurd and ridiculous fabrication believed only by idiots. It is a bullshit cover story designed to shock, awe and confuse with its sheer audacity and vainglorious hubris. Why are we surprised? Every criminal lies about his crime. Every criminal thinks he will get away with it. Every criminal hides the truth. Every criminal has a cover story. 911 is Bush’s.
There is historical precedent for Dick Cheney’s meeting with Bush’s financial support. A good description of that precedent is found in the work of St. Thomas More who wrote of what he called a ‘conspiracy of rich men’. More’s description of a ‘conspiracy of rich men’ presages Hitler’s infamous meeting in which he ‘closed’ a deal with I.G. Farben, Thyssen, Krupp et al. Hitler would wage wars from which his sponsors would benefit if they would ‘pony up’, if they would finance and support his rise to dictatorship.
For the first time—in the last relatively free election Germany was to have—the Nazi Party now could employ all the vast resources of the government to win votes. Goebbels was jubilant. “Now it will be easy,” he wrote in his diary on February 3, “to carry on the fight, for we can call on all the resources of the State. Radio and press are at our disposal. We shall stage a masterpiece of propaganda. [note: this is clearly a reference to a ‘planned’ Reichstag Fire, Hitlers’ 911!] And this time, naturally, there is no lack of money.”(2) The big businessmen, pleased with the new government that was going to put the organized workers in their place and leave management to run its business as it wished, were asked to cough up. This they agreed to do at a meeting on February 20 at Goering’s Reichstag President’s Palace, at which Dr. Schacht acted as host and Goering and Hitler laid down the line to a couple of dozen of Germany’s leading magnates, including Krupp von Bohlen, who had become an enthusiastic Nazi overnight, Bosch and Schnitzler of I. G. Farben, and Voegler, head of the United Steel Works. The record of this secret meeting has been preserved.Hitler began a long speech with a sop to the industrialists. “Private enterprise,” he said, “cannot be maintained in the age of democracy; it is conceivable only if the people have a sound idea of authority and personality … All the worldly goods we possess we owe to the struggle of the chosen . . . We must not forget that all the benefits of culture must be introduced more or less with an iron fist.” He promised the businessmen that he would “eliminate” the Marxists and restore the Wehrmacht (the latter was of special interest to such industries as Krupp, United Steel and I. G. Farben, which stood to gain the most from rearmament). “Now we stand before the last election,” Hitler concluded, and he promised his listeners that “regardless of the outcome, there will be no retreat.” If he did not win, he would stay in power “by other means . . . with other weapons.” Goering, talking more to the immediate point, stressed the necessity of “financial sacrifices” which “surely would be much easier for industry to bear if it realized that the election of March fifth will surely be the last one for the next ten years, probably even for the next hundred years.”All this was made clear enough to the assembled industrialists and they responded with enthusiasm to the promise of the end of the infernal elections, of democracy and disarmament. Krupp, the munitions king, who, according to Thyssen, had urged Hindenburg on January 29 not to appoint Hitler, jumped up and expressed to the Chancellor the “gratitude” of the businessmen “for having given us such a clear picture.” Dr. Schacht then passed the hat. “I collected three million marks,” he recalled at Nuremberg.(3)–William Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, The Nazification of Germany: 1933–34
Hitler may have begun his war on the cheap. Nazis are said to have paid ‘subsistence wages’ for big projects –the autobahn, new public buildings, the grand visions of Albert Speer, most which were never realized. Much is made of the money borrowed from Swiss banking houses. It is said that the Wehrmacht was but a shell despite its reputation. Panzer divisions were mechanized, the infantry walked. But, if we are to believe the memoirs of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s money problems had been solved by his industrial and American financiers.
It was Krupp who told the meeting: “Pony up!”, pledging himself a million marks to prime the pump. American industrialists –led by Henry Ford –did their part for the Nazi cause. By July 1942 ‘incriminating information’ had filtered back to Washington from Ford of France; it was all about Ford’s active and financial support for Herr Hitler’s war of aggression against the nations of Europe. Not surprisingly, the information was buried, as Fox et al bury anti-Bush information today. It is only those who benefit most from ‘conspiracies’ who have an inherent bias against them. Those who benefit from ‘conspiracy’ have vested interests in discounting them. ‘Conspiracies’ are how important crimes are committed. No one acting alone is capable of achieving much –certainly one person cannot wage ‘aggressive war’ or even significant acts of terrorism. Certainly –the crimes of 911 were the work of a conspiracy whether the conspiracy was conceived and directed by Bushco or other terrorists. Acts which enrich a group are called ‘free enterprise’ if legal, ‘conspiracies’ if illegal.
If ‘conspiracies’ did not exist, then why has the US Supreme Court handed down so many cases defining them and applying to them the laws of these United States? And why are there so many US laws having to do with ‘conspiracies’ if ‘conspiracies’ did not exist?
I can perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men procuring their own commodities under the name and title of the commonwealth.They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely, without fear of losing, that they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labour of the poor for as little money as may be. These devices, when the rich men have decreed to be kept and observed for the commonwealth’s sake, that is to say for the wealth also of the poor people, then they be made laws.But these most wicked and vicious men, when they have by their insatiable covetousness divided among themselves all those things, which would have sufficed all men, yet how far be they from the wealth and felicity of the Utopian commonwealth? Out of the which, in that all the desire of money with the use of thereof is utterly secluded and banished, how great a heap of cares is cut away! How great an occasion of wickedness and mischief is plucked up by the roots!
–Sir Thomas More (1478–1535), Utopia, Of the Religions in Utopia
The fascist domination of American life and debate is possible because people have ‘bought into’ the pernicious notion of ‘corporate personhood’. This notion facilitates More’s ‘conspiracy of rich men’. Mere legal abstractions are absurdly accorded rights that, by right, belong only to real, living, flesh and blood people. Corporations are given license to lie about misdeeds, incompetence and corporate criminality, literally, a ‘conspiracy of rich men!I submit that with the full knowledge and consent of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney met and conspired with GOP financial backers in the oil industry just as Hitler conspired with Krupp, Thyssen and I.G. Farben. It was at that meeting that the oil fields of Iraq were carved up like ‘booty’. Just as Hitler made promises to Thyssen, Krupp and I.G. Farben, the Bush/Cheney cabal of traitors and mass murderers made promises to Exxon-Mobil et al. There is sufficient probable cause to convene a federal grand jury to investigate charges that Bush and Cheney conspired with their corporate backers to commit the crimes of mass murder, aggressive war, torture and the grand theft of the natural resources of a sovereign nation. Many of these crimes are punishable by death under US law.
(a) Offense.— Whoever, whether inside or outside the United States, commits a war crime, in any of the circumstances described in subsection (b), shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, or both, and if death results to the victim, shall also be subject to the penalty of death.TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 118 > § 2441
§ 2441. War crimes
George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice wore out the phrase: “No one could have foreseen (fill in your favorite atrocity here!)! For Bush and Condo it was the cop out, a cover up of crimes about which the pair of them not only foresaw but planned and hoped to get away with. As a result of their conspiracies of and for ‘rich men’, the US is plunged into a new dark age which few foresaw just eight years ago when Bill Clinton left to his GOP successors and criminals the longest-ever period of sustained growth of the American economy, one of the highest employment rates in the 20th century, a balanced budget, a federal surplus and improving educational opportunities. Bush would be well-advised to leave the White House quietly at midnight unannounced. If God did not damn America, Bush worked mightily to destroy it. It must be hoped that Barack Obama can salvage what little is left of civility and hope. Additional resources

[Dec 7, 2001 tape very ill from Kidney Dialysis. A sick Bin Laden before he allegedly passed away in 2001.]
It was former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore who used the phrase “An Inconvenient Truth” in relation to his critically acclaimed film on Global Warming. However, it is apparent that this same phrase may also be applied to Osama Bin Laden. Elites of both the U.S. Republican and Democratic parties have pledged their determination to vanquish Osama Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda “global terrorist network”. The threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda has been used to fundamentally inspire the bloating of a political-military-industrial complex to pursue a “War on Terror”. However, documented representation from credible sources suggest that Osama Bin Laden died at some time, long ago, and the idea that Al Qaeda exists as a terrorist-political network is a myth.
It was former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower who in 1961, warned of the dangers of a machinating, and ego-driven “military-industrial complex”, as a singular threat to “freedom and democracy”. It was also Leo Strauss, who championed the importance of elites creating “unifying myths” against a common enemy. Leo Strauss, who was a Jew, and Holocaust survivor, was ironically inspired by both Adolf Hitler and Nazi ideology.
In June 2004 edition of Harpers’ Magazine, Earl Shorris, wrote the article “Leo Strauss, George Bush, and the philosophy of mass deception”. The influence of neo-fascistic Straussianism in the U.S. President George W. Bush administration, and among America’s ruling elites in general, has been well documented. Could it be that alleged Crimes of Humanity that have been perpetrated under the pretext of a “War on Terror” have been supported by an industry of global; empire-driven myth-making associated with Osama Bin Laden who presides over an “Al Qaeda”?
In a political context inspired by Leo Strauss, one would expect the orchestration of fabrications and intrigues that can be used by elites to legitimate political narratives presented by elites through mass-media instruments. The political narrative presented by elites is that Osama Bin Laden through his Al-Qaeda network masterminded 9/11, and that the U.S and its “coalition of the willing” is seeking to defend “freedom and democracy” by executing a war to destroy Al Qaeda, and to find Bin Laden, who supposedly, “remains on the loose”. However, the fervent declarations of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) by the Bush Administration in Iraq, that was later shown to be based upon fabrications, proves that the entire “War on Terror” might very well be a Straussian-inspired ruse:
The present culture of public deception promoted and maintained through corporate-controlled media is very real, and has it’s recent origin in the neo- conservative philosophy of Leo Strauss.
Strauss was a German Jewish political philosopher who arrived in the United States in 1938. Strauss taught at several major universities, including University of Chicago. Among Strauss’s students were the architects of the neo-conservatism which has dominated and defined the agenda of the Democratic and the Republican parties of the past several decades.
Strauss saw the use of deception in politics as a necessity. While outwardly professing deep respect for American democracy, Strauss believed that societies should be hierarchical – divided between an elite who should lead, and the masses who should follow. Unlike philosophical elitists such as Plato, he was unconcerned with the moral character of these leaders.
Shadia Drury, Professor of Political Science at the University of Calgary elaborates the following about Straussian ideology:
“Those who are fit to rule are those who realize there is no morality and that there is only one natural right – the right of the superior to rule over the inferior.”
It is furthermore illuminated that:
This philosophy requires an environment of “perpetual deception” in which the people are indoctrinated to a manufactured mythology, of simplistic character appropriate to their meagre powers of comprehension.
According to Drury, Straussian philosophy requires: “perpetual deception of the citizens by those in power is critical because they need to be led, and they need strong rulers to tell them what’s good for them.” .
This philosophy of neo-conservatism also holds that: “While the elite few are capable of absorbing the absence of any moral truth, the masses could not cope. If exposed to the absence of absolute truth, they would quickly fall into nihilism or anarchy.”
Strauss also believed that “Because mankind is intrinsically wicked, he has to be governed.. Such governance can only be established, however, when men are united – and they can only be united against other people.”
A Straussian society then, requires a state of perpetual war. LINK
In Nazi Germany, Adolf Hilter used Jews, Gypsies, and “socialists” as scapegoats to inspire a sought primal hatred, that could be used to inspire the imperial desires of an elite. Could it be that Muslims are simply the scapegoats for a Straussian clique, that is also inspired by Adolf Hilter’s desires for a Third Reich and accompanying “New World Order”?
A translated article of the Egyptian Newspaper al-Wafd, published on Wednesday, December 26, 2001 Vol 15 No 4633 suggests that Osama Bin Laden died in 2001. The article was titled “News of bin Laden’s Death and Funeral 10 days ago”:
Islamabad — A prominent official in the Afghan Taliban movement announced yesterday the death of Osama bin Laden, the chief of al-Qa’da organization, stating that bin Laden suffered serious complications in the lungs and died a natural and quiet death. The official, who asked to remain anonymous, stated to The Observer of Pakistan that he had himself attended the funeral of bin Laden and saw his face prior to burial in Tora Bora 10 days ago. He mentioned that 30 of al-Qa’da fighters attended the burial as well as members of his family and some friends from the Taliban. In the farewell ceremony to his final rest guns were fired in the air. The official stated that it is difficult to pinpoint the burial location of bin Laden because according to the Wahhabi tradition no mark is left by the grave. He stressed that it is unlikely that the American forces would ever uncover any traces of bin Laden.
Pakistan’s leadership at the time of this article, in apparent confirmation of the authenticity of the article, also apparently thought that Bin Laden in fact had died:
‘Pakistan’s president says he thinks Osama bin Laden is most likely dead because the suspected terrorist has been unable to get treatment for his kidney disease’, writes CNN in connection with an interview with president Musharraf in 2002. The medical correspondent of CNN continues: ‘[…] renal dialysis — talking about hemodialysis — is something that really is reserved for patients in end-stage renal failure. That means their kidneys have just completely shut down.’ Also the Afghan president Karzai thinks that Laden probably is dead, as he tells CNN in 2002. A few weeks later CNN writes that it is possession of Bin Laden’s Will, but the authenticity of the document cannot be proven. LINK
Another representation by Baitullah Mehsud, who has been alleged to have assassinated Benazir Bhutto suggested that Bin Laden was killed 2 November 2007:
Mehsud also rejected claims by the government in Islamabad that he was responsible for the assassination in December of Pakistan People’s Party leader, Benazir Bhutto. “It wasn’t us who killed Bhutto,” he said.
He was quoted saying that the ex Prime minister was murdered because of the reason her leak to the media.
Benazir Bhutto had said Osama Bin Laden was murdered live on a British television interview with David Frost of the BBC on 2nd November 2007 has Benazir Bhutto mentioning that Osama Bin Laden was murdered 2 minutes into the video. LINK
But what about the bin Laden videos?
If it is true that Bin Laden is not alive any more, how can it be that we received a video message from him last year? WhatReallyHappened also has an answer to this. It cites the Washington Post which writes in an article with the heading When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing: ‘Digital morphing — voice, video, and photo — has come of age, available for use in psychological operations’. WhatReallyHappened shows that Bin Laden in 2004 did not look like himself any more (see photo on left). He even became right-handed spontaneously (revealed in a published video). In short, it involves an actor, and not even a very good one. And his voice? In the meantime, thanks to technique, it is possible to totally forge a voice and let it say anything you want: ‘”Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government.” So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command. At least the voice sounds amazingly like him. But it is not Steiner. It is the result of voice “morphing” technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner’s voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile. Steiner was so impressed, he asked for a copy of the tape’, writes the Washington Post. LINK
It is furthermore apparent that not only Bin Laden may very well be dead, but Al-Qaeda is also an apparent myth to keep Americans and the rest of the world in support of the ambitions of a political-military-industrial complex:
‘What is this al-Qaeda? Does such a group even exist? Some terrorism experts doubt it. Adam Dolnik and Kimberly McCloud reckon it’s time we ‘defused the widespread image of al-Qaeda as a ubiquitous, super-organised terror network and call it as it is: a loose collection of groups and individuals that doesn’t even refer to itself as al-Qaeda’. Dolnik and McCloud – who first started studying terrorism at the prestigious Monterey Institute of International Studies in California – claim it was Western officials who imposed the name ‘al-Qaeda’ onto disparate radical Islamic groups and who blew Osama bin Laden’s power and reach ‘out of proportion’. Both are concerned about the threat of terror, but argue that we should ‘debunk the myth of al-Qaeda”, writes Spiked.
‘There is also no evidence that Bin Laden used the term “Al Qaeda” to refer to the name of a group until after September the 11th, when he realized that this was the term the Americans have given it. […]
‘The idea — which is critical to the FBI’s prosecution — that bin Laden ran a coherent organisation with operatives and cells all around the world of which you could be a member is a myth. There is no Al Qaeda organisation. There is no international network with a leader, with cadres who will unquestioningly obey orders, with tentacles that stretch out to sleeper cells in America, in Africa, in Europe. That idea of a coherent, structured terrorist network with an organised capability simply does not exist.’ LINK
The then retiring U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower appeared in 1961, to seek to warn Americans specifically, and the world in general, about the ambitions of a political-military-industrial complex to establish under its fascist guidance, a “Global Empire”. The lies that would be necessary to consolidate such an empire under “Globalization” and the “War on Terror” are viewed to be noble, in pursuit of an elite’s right to rule.
A broad constituency of learned scholars who include Dr. David Ray Griffin, engineers, investigative researchers, eyewitnesses, and others have suggested that official accounts of 9/11 are apparent Straussian deceptions. These representatives also critically cite continued elite orchestrated resistance to an truly independent investigation of the 9/11 World Trade Center attack. This allegedly Bin Laden and Al Qaeda executed “terrorist attack” has in turn been used as the basis of an apparent genocidal war against Muslims, that has resulted in over one million civilian deaths. Could the questionable pretext of the War on Terror, that in turn is being used as a basis to divert many billions of dollars away from quality-of-living areas, and into a political-military-industrial complex, be as some suggest, simply the advancement of “noble lies” for imperial objectives?
John Lash’s accounts of the Pagan Gnostics suggest that Americans and the world in general, through an ethos of “blind faith”, have made themselves vulnerable to orchestrated deceit.
Gnostic insight documents how blind faith in relation to Western proselytized Judeo-Christian traditions in a regressive “alien spell”, may be used to sabotage the kind of critical thinking that would protect humanity from such deceit. Indeed, there is no apparent verifiable proof that Osama Bin Laden still lives, or that an “Al-Qaeda” is responsible for 9/11. But whole populations reject the idea that they could somehow be told a self-serving system of “noble lies”. The evidence presented by reputable scholars like David Ray Griffin is not even seriously regarded by the victims of an apparent “alien spell”, that shrugs off such evidence as the rantings of “conspiracy theorists”. Gnostics suggest that it is vital for humanity to raise its own consciousness toward making itself aware of an alien artificial intelligence conquest agenda, that seeks to pursue an ego-driven agenda, and accompanying mass deception.
