The Wounds of War

Posted on Updated on

source

I’ve tried to temper my words lately. Being aggressive in disdain for those who blindly promote service to bankers and the war machine rarely works. It puts those complicit in delivering their sons and daughters into the bowels of the corrupt system of empire on the defensive. They have been programmed and it’s hard to undo.

Recently an older family member said of someone who is about to graduate from high school; “Isn’t he going to join the military? Wouldn’t that be the best thing for him?”

This person has been diagnosed as being in the early stages of Alzheimer’s so there was no need in arguing. Sometimes it seems that our entire country is in the last stages of the disease for which there is no cure. Perhaps that’s close to being true but there still are enough healthy people to make a difference, at least that’s the hope we still cling to.

Another extended family member, who is in college, thinks he wants to be in the FBI. There were too many people not interested in politics and propaganda around when this talk was going on this Easter Sunday so I held my tongue. One day I will try to plant the seed of doubt by asking him what he would do when confronted with orders that are not ethical or moral or constitutional as so often is the case. He’s a smart kid but I don’t think he has been exposed to the whole of possibilities that exist in that line of work.  It’s the same with soldiers and their families. Not being aware is a poor excuse but being caught up in the deceptions is understandable and we have to deal with it.

Just because you don’t want to hear something, doesn’t mean it isn’t true and also doesn’t mean you won’t hear it at some point, or be affected by it to your detriment or benefit. Great and seemingly invincible armies have been defeated. Massive armadas have sunk and drowned at the bottom of the sea. Vast empires are now nothing but ruins. These things are true.

Today is the 42th anniversary of the Kent State massacre.
Questions still remain but the same mechanisms of shoot first, think and ask questions later still remain. For some of us it was our first exposure to the reality that pawns working for those in power would kill their own and attempt to justify it in the name of security. It’s fairly commonplace now. Only the actors and victims have changed.

The protesters, the hippies, thought they could change the world and in small ways they did. We thought we could put an end to the insanity of war. Little did we know.

By 1974 the idealism of youth had taken a wrong turn . Hard drugs, downers, bad acid and creeping apathy infiltrated the movement and causalities at the fringe took their toll. By the end of the Vietnam War the hippies were starting to become yuppies and the consumer culture once again became dominant. The police state never rested and solidified and advanced the agenda exponentially with 9/11. The factors of where we are today are many. Just as there was no justice for the victims of Kent State, one ingredient of all collapsing empires is an absence of justice. Do we still have time to bring justice back to the forefront? We have to try.

From 1972, memories from the falling and failures of the counter culture … It was fun while it lasted.

Our basic common ground is that we don’t forget ….. and we don’t forgive

The celebration on Wall Street as Germany surrenders in World War I was for much more than the end of the war. Now it was pay back time. Investment = principal plus interest. It was also time to plan for the next round of theft, destruction and murder. The planning and execution of those crimes continue to this very day.

It’s a cliche now but but every good criminal investigator follows the money. Cui Bono? Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, the City of London and all the other affiliates of the international banking syndicate make their real money from chaos in the marketplace and death.

For many of us the Vietnam war was our awakening. We watched as our soldier friends who had little choice came home in boxes, damaged physically and psychologically and maybe even dancing with addictions from which they would never recover. We heard the stories firsthand but many times it was what was not to be said that was most telling.

Man Down

 Our idealism in the Vietnam era screamed it would never happen again. We would end war. We would stop the insanity. We’re still working on it.

We have never forgiven the bankers and their hierarchy of minions for what they have done. It doesn’t seem we ever will. Forgiveness comes only after justice and justice is in short supply.

A little over ten years ago the money handlers jumped the shark. They threw at us the ‘all or nothing’ and ‘in your face’ catalyst for all things destructive to come. They gambled that they could pull it off and by god they did. Questioners were met immediately with misinformation, disinformation and infiltration of the non-official narrative right alongside bits and pieces of clues as to the who, why and how. The 9/11 truth movement was from the beginning a divide and conquer playground for those tasked with the cover ups and continuation of a perverted end game.

After all this time we are still arguing about the hows and it plays right into the hands of the perps. Honest sincere people will agree to disagree no matter how passionate their viewpoints may be.  One person’s analysis may not fit another’s perceptions but among the honest there is always common ground and a chance to find allies even in disagreement of details. Goon Squad puts it in perspective:

Ladies and Gentlemen, what Ben Franklin said during America’s Revolutionary War, where for once we breathed free air after ridding the USA of the Rothschilds agents and banks is true today and what he said was something like, “Gentleman, if we don’t hang together, we most assuredly will hang separately.”

Let us agree to disagree about the unknowns during the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11, as long as we stay on the path TOGETHER, seeking REAL 9/11 truth or the last sound you’ll hear on this Earth will be the trap door swinging open, as we get picked off or picked up, one by one.

Our basic common ground is that we don’t forget ….. and we don’t forgive.

Onward Warvangelical Soldiers

Posted on Updated on

Another Sunday morning, another march to the shrine.
Another merging of church and war state. 
Another mind confined.

  

The term ‘Warvangelical’ is a fairly new one.  Not yet in the dictionary and not yet overused, it does define a certain segment of our population. Not exactly a small one either. It doesn’t even have to be used in a derogatory manner. It’s basically just a matter of fact and not a new one at that.

Same old story, same old song. From their religion to their politics, some people are going to set the cruise control and stay on the road they are told leads them to where they should go. Not much need in making fun of them or they just dig their heels in harder. We are all subject to deception and one of the hardest things for folks to do is to stand up and say “Well, what do you know. I’ve believed in lies all of my life and I’m not going to play that game any longer.” It rarely works that way.

Of course it’s not just the Warvangelical right and their mega-temples. From the faux Christian lefties on down to the little church in the wildwood people are silent despite the storm clouds rising. They sacrifice their sons and daughters on the alter of the war god and few question why.

No matter what one believes in, it’s not hard to see that the planned destruction of Christianity is well on its way. Mostly it’s all from within with a lot of outside help from those who prefer murder and mayhem rather than the ‘golden rule.’

“The Cult of the Warvangelicals.” Sounds like the title of a bad ‘B’ movie but as fate would have it, it’s now prime time baby.

“And after church, the ballgame.”

Who’s Your Enemy?

Posted on Updated on

Our enemy?

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, it gets worse.

I turned on the radio late last night to hear a little soothing music but … oops wrong station.

This creepy little non-human by the name of Bill Cunningham was taking hate speech to a whole new level. He almost makes Savage and Limbaugh look like choirboys.  In a quick summary here’s what he was saying:

Dresden was good. Hiroshima was double good. If you’re going to fight a war, kill the civilians, burn ’em, they deserve it.

Expanding to Iran he says:

I’d warn the Iranians a few days in advance to get the heck out of Dodge. I would obliterate (a favorite word used at least a dozen times) the 20 largest cities. Women, children, they all need to die. 20 million killed would be a good start. Then we would go in and take all of their resources and bring them back to the US.

Billy boy must have thought we didn’t hear him the first time so he repeats the same thing over and over, all the while on the phone line is some racist self described jew cheering him on and breaking in twice to declare Billy’s sick words as “the greatest rant in the whole history of the world.” Seriously. You just can’t make this sort of thing up.

Billy is brain damaged and senile but I do think I heard him drooling and counting his money in the background. Being bought off is a good gig for the mentally and morally challenged.

In Pax Judaica, formerly the USA, this is what passes for free speech. Broadcasting on over 300 stations and advocating mass murder in a foreign land is AOK. Just don’t talk about overthrowing our criminal syndicate federal government and their media whores.  That will get you thrown into a new American gulag.

Calling out the MSM warmongers is not enough. There are those in the alternative media that deserve a second look.  Via xymphora we find Maidhc Ó Cathail taking on the change of tone at Antiwar.com and there’s a comment mention of the same thing at Global Research.  Re-directing attention from Israel? As the old Lenin saying goes … “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”

Over at Twelfth Bough there is described a development in Chinese and Israeli relations that hints at World Judaica.

“Only recently a large team of Chinese state television employees visited Israel for a period of three weeks, to research the ‘Israeli miracle.’ Now they are visiting several places in the world that used to have large Jewish communities, in order to examine the Jewish community’s influence on its surroundings. Their idea is to try to decipher the secret of the Jews’ success.” 

The Chinese are so adept at copying, stealing and re-engineering that this hook up with the Israelis should be a breeze but of course it would be the jews who expect to profit the most from this ‘learning’ experience.

On Martin Luther King day it’s worth a reminder that he was not killed because of his civil rights endeavors. That was acceptable to the powers that be. The opportunity to divide a population to gain more control is always acceptable to the ruling psychopaths. No, it was when he started speaking out against the war that the decision was made to eliminate that kind of talk. War is a profit center and advocating doing away with the cash cow was not to be tolerated.

From his speech Beyond Vietnam — A Time to Break Silence

Over the past two years, as I have moved to break the betrayal of my own silences and to speak from the burnings of my own heart, as I have called for radical departures from the destruction of Vietnam, many persons have questioned me about the wisdom of my path. At the heart of their concerns this query has often loomed large and loud: “Why are you speaking about the war, Dr. King?” “Why are you joining the voices of dissent?” “Peace and civil rights don’t mix,” they say. “Aren’t you hurting the cause of your people,” they ask? And when I hear them, though I often understand the source of their concern, I am nevertheless greatly saddened, for such questions mean that the inquirers have not really known me, my commitment or my calling. Indeed, their questions suggest that they do not know the world in which they live.

As I have walked among the desperate, rejected, and angry young men, I have told them that Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action. But they ask — and rightly so — what about Vietnam? They ask if our own nation wasn’t using massive doses of violence to solve its problems, to bring about the changes it wanted. Their questions hit home, and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government. 

Vet’s vent over the ‘event’ of urinating on the dead.

The “irony” is that is is fine for the U.S. to kill civilians, have all kinds of “collateral damage,” and friendly fire events. It is OK to drop “daisy cutter” bombs and kill with unmanned drones. It is OK to hold people for years in close confinement and without charge or trial; engage in “rendition,” or even torture prisoners ourselves. But somehow, urinating on the dead is just a step too far.

Until we address the reality of what we are creating we will continue to allow it to be created. Generation after generation of troops will have to keep the stuff of nightmares bottled up inside, or it will come out in another attack and another prison sentence.

Will soldiers be sufficiently indoctrinated to internalize the children and women of Iran as the ‘enemy?’ I challenge all drone jockeys, bomber pilots and trigger pullers to ask themselves “Is this who I want to kill?”

Killing for …….

Posted on Updated on

The Iowa caucus ……. The first step in possibly choosing the next ‘killer in chief’ or perhaps more correctly, having him chosen for us. Except for ‘rock star’ Ron Paul, the rest of the candidates have all pledged to continue the neocon/neolib wars of aggression, both foreign and domestic, expousing some form of twisted Christianity and hoping few are paying attention to their hypocrisy and greed or the hidden hands that pull the strings and wrap around their necks when necessary.

“A highwayman is as much a robber when he plunders in a gang as when single; and a nation that makes an unjust war is only a great gang.” –Benjamin Franklin

The son of a Sunday-school teacher and a church deacon, Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in US history, credits a higher authority for his longest kill.

“God blew that bullet and hit him.”

 “You see us? We’re the people kicking your ass. Fear us, because we will kill you, motherf–ker.”

We could update the CJ’s words with killing for Wall Street, bankers, war contractors, Israel …. take your pick … or fill in the blank _______.

 “A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.” -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Game plans – Protocol # 7

The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces – are all essential for the completion of the plans.

We must create ferments, discords and hostility. Therein we gain a double advantage. In the first place we keep in check all countries, for they will know that we have the power whenever we like to create disorders or to restore order. All these countries are accustomed to see in us an indispensable force of coercion. In the second place, by our intrigues we shall tangle up all the threads which we have stretched into the cabinets of all States by means of the political, by economic treaties, or loan obligations.

In order to succeed in this we must use great cunning and penetration during negotiations and agreements, but, as regards what is called the “official language,” we shall keep to the opposite tactics and assume the mask of honesty and complacency. In this way the peoples and governments of the GOYIM, whom we have taught to look only at the outside whatever we present to their notice, will still continue to accept us as the benefactors and saviours of the human race.

We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition by war with the neighbors of that country which dares to oppose us: but if these neighbors should also venture to stand collectively together against us, then we must offer resistance by a universal war.

 In a word, to sum up our system of keeping the governments of the goyim in in check, we shall show our strength to one of them by terrorist attempts and to all, if we allow the possibility of a general rising against us, we shall respond with the guns of America or China.

THE PRESS, WHICH, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS THAT MAY BE DISREGARDED, IS ALREADY ENTIRELY IN OUR HANDS.

 

Protocol # 10

WE NAME PRESIDENTS

We shall establish the responsibility of presidents.

By that time we shall be in a position to disregard forms in carrying through matters for which our impersonal puppet will be responsible.

In order that our scheme may produce this result we shall arrange elections in favor of such presidents as have in their past some dark, undiscovered stain, then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our plans out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of everyone who has attained power, namely, the retention of the privileges, advantages and honor connected with the office of president.

The president will, at our discretion, interpret the sense of such of the existing laws as admit of various interpretation; he will further annul them when we indicate to him the necessity to do so, besides this, he will have the right to propose temporary laws, and even new departures in the government constitutional working, the pretext both for the one and the other being the requirements for the supreme welfare of the State.

We shall obtain the power of destroying little by little, step by step, all that at the outset when we enter on our rights, we are compelled to introduce into the constitutions of States to prepare for the transition to an imperceptible abolition of every kind of constitution, and then the time is come to turn every form of government into OUR DESPOTISM.

The recognition of our despot may also come before the destruction of the constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence – a matter which we shall arrange for – of their rulers, will clamor: “Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who will unite us and annihilate the causes of disorders – frontiers, nationalities, religions, State debts – who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives.”

But you yourselves perfectly well know that TO PRODUCE THE POSSIBILITY OF THE EXPRESSION OF SUCH WISHES BY ALL THE NATIONS IT IS INDISPENSABLE TO TROUBLE IN ALL COUNTRIES THE PEOPLE’S RELATIONS WITH THEIR GOVERNMENTS SO AS TO UTTERLY EXHAUST HUMANITY WITH DISSENSION, HATRED, STRUGGLE, ENVY AND EVEN BY THE USE OF TORTURE, BY STARVATION, BY THE INOCULATION OF DISEASES, BY WANT, SO THAT THE “GOYIM” SEE NO OTHER ISSUE THAN TO TAKE REFUGE IN OUR COMPLETE SOVEREIGNTY IN MONEY AND IN ALL ELSE.

Old Pearl Harbor, New Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor’s to Come

Posted on

“When you realize just about everything you have been told all your life is a lie, you are on the right track.”
         dublinmick

70 years since Pearl Harbor and many things stay the same. Wars are conspiracies. All wars are of lies. Wars are for profit. Few benefit, many die.

The so called ‘greatest generation’ was a great hijacking. Bodies for bankers. Planned destruction with the leaders in place to make sure it goes down. The rich get richer, the poor get dead. Repeated on and on.

Pearl Harbor was ‘let it happen on purpose.’ 9/11, the new Pearl Harbor was ‘make it happen on purpose.’ The next Pearl Harbor to lead us into more wars will also be a set-up, a death trap where ‘the end always justifies the means’ as the psychopaths say.

Butcher is a term used when it happens to Americans. When we dish it out … Dresden, Hiroshima, Eisenhower’s death camps, My Lai, Fallujah, etc. etc. etc., it is called a necessity of war or some sort of “Newspeak;”

We rounded up the Japanese Americans in the name of security.  We detained a number of Israelis after 9/11 then we let them go away. Muslims in Gitmo did not fare as well. American citizens could be  next with a few detainees to keep the rest in line. Many will stand by and watch hoping they will be spared and keep silent in despair for what else may be to come. 

History finds a few that speak up and try to stop the madness. After Pearl Harbor Jeannette Rankin was the only congressperson to do so. Before that, on September 11, 1941 (the same day as the ground-breaking ceremony for the Pentagon), Charles Lindbergh warned us in a speech to the America First Committee. Pearl Harbor trumped the anti-war talk. The term ‘America First’ is now mostly verboten in the globalist banker world but we’ll keep using it as long as we can still draw a breath and not just for our own benefit but for the whole of humanity.

So what about the next Pearl Harbor? Can we stop it just by continuing to give the warnings that false flags are are the standard operating procedure of the ruling ‘elite?’ Or by repeating the truth of history that always repeats itself if we are not vigilant? Maybe not, but the killers and manipulators have to be a little worried that every day there are a few more catching onto their lies. The question is whether we will have what it takes to stop them. It will come first from our hearts and go from there.

Veterans Day: "Father, Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do"

Posted on Updated on

I don’t often quote Bible phrases but it’s all I could think of that seemed appropriate for addressing the veterans on their ‘day.’ 

Smedley Butler is rolling over and over in his grave because he gave us the warning that war is a racket but it never made it into the textbooks and rarely into the churches so most of the soldiers never had a chance to grasp the concept.

“WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”

I don’t want to call the vets names but don’t those who use them for their own purposes refer to them as patsies, pawns and puppets? Useful idiots is very derogatory but I think they are called that too. Heck, the system can’t even be bothered with keeping up with the body parts that get blown up in our latest profiteering in Afghanistan. Respect for the dead and their families is not a very high priority.

Mortuary officials at Dover were charged with improperly sawing off an arm bone from the body of a Marine killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2010 in order to fit his remains in his uniform for viewing before burial. The family was not asked about removing the bone.

At least I don’t think that the body bags are being filled with heroin for ease of smuggling as they were during the Vietnam War. The CIA and military now have their own specially designated planes and trucks for that so I guess that’s an improvement of sorts.

I’m just sick and tired of hearing that the vets did it for our freedoms. The fact is that every time we go to war our freedoms diminish, stripped and raped and forgotten in the fog of deceit.

I’ll repeat it again and again. I know you’re tired of it but I feel the need. Every dead soldier died in vain. Coming home in a box or bag was in vain. Every wounded soldier, physically and psychologically,  that did return home alive was damaged in vain. Every returning soldier that committed suicide or took the lives of others due to the war demons they brought home with them were lives lost in vain. Wasted lives and all for the few whose only desires are for money and power and blood lust. It’s the American way. That’s why I love the Star Spangled Banner so much. It’s always been the perfect reflection of our warring ways.

I seem to get it all confused, now what freedoms did the vets kill and be killed for? Wasn’t one of them something about free speech and  “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances?”  Maybe we should ask veterans Scott Olsen and Kayvan Sabeghi about that?

Veterans speaking out against the wars is a welcome addition to the dialog. After the fact but still better than silence and who knows, it may influence someone to not join in the genocidal rampage. 

For all their ‘sacrifice’ the vets get a holiday, a parade and some faux words of praise. For the dead there’s a Chinese made flag placed on the worm farm they lie in and it’s called remembrance. The wives, the children, the fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters cry real tears. All the rest is theater and lies to bring along the next crop of bodies to repeat the program.

For a quarter in 1915 folks could get a small education in how the bankers promote the war machine for their profit.

“Privatize your prisons and they will be forever full.  Privatize your wars and they will be endless and many.”

Another wasted warning. Another typical day at the office for the war plotters. 

As if it’s not bad enough that the vets, almost always the poor and working class,  fight and die for the rich, Wall Street, immoral corporations and their bought politicians but now it’s that they are doing so for a foreign country and an illegitimate racist apartheid state at that. Chosen cannon fodder for the ‘chosen ones.’   Mercenaries for hire and they come cheap for the monstrosity of Israel. Bribery, payoffs and blackmail are the tools of their trade so why not get the U.S. goys and girls to take care of the foreign slaughter so the Israelis can concentrate on their domestic land thievery and murder.  The American people foot the bill and the deranged call it God’s will. It’s a sickness and a tragedy. We allow it to happen and pledge our allegiance to the myth that it is necessary.

At one time it was the forced draft. Now we have the forced economic ‘volunteers.’ Another travesty is the great number who joined out of ‘patriotism’ in the wake of the big lie of 9/11.  The war on terror, the clash of civilizations, the contrived hatred of Muslims, all the result of the think tanks of depravity who propagandized the children to walk into the valley of the shadow of death without a real thought of their own. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they get their own ‘day’ for being such good sleepwalkers. 

Locally there will be a grand ‘celebration’ in the gym of the high school. Attendance is not optional. There will be bands and bagpipes, songs of ‘service, testimonials and tales of the ‘patriotic,’ prayers lifted up to the perceived gods of war where we are the righteous and those we drone bomb are the sacrilegious. Displays of hummers, military vehicles, and Black Hawk helicopters and some sort of Special Presentation called SPECTACULAR . Of course there will be the parasitic recruiters, lurking and smirking in the background, whistling the theme song to “Have Gun Will Travel’ and ready to pounce upon the youth to fulfill their quotas. I look at the kid’s parents and think, “why won’t you just so no.”  Some do. Many don’t.

I have been called anti-American and worse for saying these things. I’ve had people who have wanted to smash my face for daring to use the free speech that is one of the freedoms the vets supposedly died for. Show me one war, one skirmish, one invasion, one occupation since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 that was not for the benefit of the money masters. Prove it with real unvarnished history and not the rewritten lore of the ‘ victors’ and I’ll shut up and go away. 


One day I may celebrate Veterans Day. That would be when all the troops are home and all the lies exposed. When the death cultists have vanished from the pages of time and the truth of why it all happened is taught in the classrooms. When we have some semblance of hope that it will never happen again. I know, that’s a dream but the reality is that all good things start as a dream that through perseverance manifests itself in the physical world. Till then, I’ll  just repeat myself again and again. There are no just wars. Never. Ever.

Thanks for wading through my standard Veterans Day rant. Yes, it’s the same old, same old. But like I said, I just felt the need.
