The Hybrid Series #10: Mastering Fear in the Face of Utter Demonic Violence


Hello everyone

Once again, and more than ever, the vile, cruel nature of the beast that is at the heart of the American hegemonic drive to conquer the world, under the diabolic influence of terribly lost souls and with the willing collaboration of lots of misguided beings, is coming across most clearly in this compilation. I suggest that once you've read and assimilated the sheer meaning of it all, you take a moment of introspective re-centering to reassert within yourself the realization that it is only against the bedrock of an unshakable faith in our abilities to master and overcome this "beast", whose tendrils reach within everyone of us -- because we are all fallible and all on the path towards re-awakening to our innate perfection -- that the growing onslaught of violence and desperate actions engendered by the recognition that their relative control over this world is fast slipping away will meet the impregnable barrier of an unreachable, ultra high frequency of Love and Compassion and ultimately fail. By Being Who We Are, simply, all their violence and fear-mongering plots will come to nil. And we will love them even more so for having shown us, once again, the dark, unavoidable consequences of choosing a path that leads away from the Light instead of directly into the unfathomable bliss of Universal Oneness.

But before entering into the the heavy stuff, you'll find first a couple VERY positive, uplifting news.

Cheer and share!

The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books; a mysterious order it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects."

SPECIAL 9-11 ANNIVERSARY SECTION

Living in 'Apocalyptic Fear' (Sept 11)
http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0911-02.htm
Americans More Scared Than Ever - WASHINGTON -Two years on, the shock has dissipated, the memory is more distant, but the fear remains. Poll after poll released on the eve of today's second anniversary of the terrorist strikes on New York and Washington find Americans more fearful and fatalistic than they were a year ago, when the need to honor the victims supplanted the recurring vision of another attack. (...) Fear is something this administration has been selling for two years. You sedate the populace with the drug of fear and maybe the electorate won't notice what a mess you have made, not only of domestic politics, but also our international relations. In order to conceal, disguise, dress up their own incompetence, they beat the constant threat of war and fear. Bush took that message of fear with him yesterday in a speech at an FBI training Center. in Quantico, Va., where he called for expanded police powers against suspected terrorists. In so doing, Bush appears to have picked up the torch from his attorney-general, John Ashcroft, who has been accused of trampling civil rights in a growing national debate over his USA Patriot Act, which was passed after the 2001 attacks. "The enemy is wounded but still resourceful and actively recruiting and still dangerous. We cannot afford a moment of complacency," Bush said. "The memories of Sept. 11 will never leave us. We will not forget the burning towers and the last phone calls and the smoke over Arlington. "And we will never forget the servants of evil who plotted the attacks. And we will never forget those who rejoiced at our grief and our mourning," Bush said. Bush immediately drew the ire of the American Civil Liberties Union for using the tragic anniversary of more than 3,000 deaths to promote tougher police measures. Lapham said it was just another example of the marketing of terror. "That's what Ashcroft is doing," he said, "going around the country promoting the USA Patriot Act, saying, `There's a terrorist on everybody's block and unless you give us these Draconian powers, the bogeyman is going to come and get you.'"

The Incredible 9-11 Evidence We've All been Overlooking
http://serendipity.fakelabs.org/wot/aa11.htm
(...) There is at least one other piece of startling photographic and video evidence from the attacks in New York. It concerns Flight 175, the plane that hit WTC2, the South Tower. The photograph on the right is one of the most dramatic and frequently reproduced images of the events of September 11. Showing the second plane only a second or so before it hit WCT2, it has appeared on the front pages of newspapers and magazines around the world as well as on countless web sites. You have probably seen it tens, if not hundreds, of times. It is one of the defining images of that day. Yet if you look closely you will see that it is one of the most extraordinarily revealing and incriminating images too. For it is rather plain to see that the aircraft is carrying an anomalous device underneath its right wing, very close to the fuselage. It almost looks like a third engine and is connected by tubing to the tail section. It also has a nozzle sticking out at the front. The picture below may assist in clarifying what I am describing. (...) Not only is the anomalous device on the plane's underside clearly visible, it is clear too that, just as the plane's nose strikes the building, the nozzle of this device fires a jet of flame. If you think this sounds fanciful, then look at the clip and come to your own conclusion. If you suspect that this clip has been doctored in some way then find a videotaped copy of the original footage and look at that too, frame by frame. The anomalous device and the burst of flame are still there. What is going on here?

Bush Seeks to Expand Access to Private Data
http://www.truthout.org/docs_03/091503E.shtml
WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 - For months, President Bush's advisers have assured a skittish public that law-abiding Americans have no reason to fear the long reach of the antiterrorism law known as the Patriot Act because its most intrusive measures would require a judge's sign-off. But in a plan announced this week to expand counterterrorism powers, President Bush adopted a very different tack. In a three-point presidential plan that critics are already dubbing Patriot Act II, Mr. Bush is seeking broad new authority to allow federal agents - without the approval of a judge or even a federal prosecutor - to demand private records and compel testimony. Mr. Bush also wants to expand the use of the death penalty in crimes like terrorist financing, and he wants to make it tougher for defendants in such cases to be freed on bail before trial. These proposals are also sure to prompt sharp debate, even among Republicans. Opponents say that the proposal to allow federal agents to issue subpoenas without the approval of a judge or grand jury will significantly expand the law enforcement powers granted by Congress after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. And they say it will also allow the Justice Department - after months of growing friction with some judges - to limit the role of the judiciary still further in terrorism cases. CLIP

IRAQ IS THE 'FLYTRAP' AND U.S. TROOPS ARE THE BAIT (Sept 12)
http://etherzone.com/2003/raim091203.shtml
The complete moral bankruptcy of the War Party is coming out of the closet, as they say, with the emergence of the strategic thinking behind the war in Iraq. To those Americans who see that there was no connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, no weapons of mass destruction, no imminent danger, the war is a mystery. As American casualties become a daily routine, and Iraq slips into chaos, more and more Americans want to know: What were they thinking? Ah, but Andrew Sullivan knows ... In the confidential manner of a practiced sycophant, the British-born writer, former editor of The New Republic, and George Orwell wannabe, is so eager to show off his chumminess with the powerful that he lets slip the following: "Some time before the Iraq war, I found myself musing out loud to someone close to the inner circles of the Bush administration. We were talking about the post-war scenario, something that even then was a source of some worry even to gung-ho hawks like myself. … I voiced some worries about what might happen if an occupied Iraq became a target for international terrorism. Wouldn't U.S. soldiers become sitting ducks? What was to stop al Qaeda using Iraq as a battleground in the war against the West? … "And what he said surprised me. If the terrorists leave us alone in Iraq, fine, he said. But if they come and get us, even better. Far more advantageous to fight terror using trained soldiers in Iraq than trying to defend civilians in New York or London. 'Think of it as a flytrap,' he ventured. Iraq would not simply be a test-case for Muslim democracy; it would be the first stage in a real and aggressive war against the terrorists and their sponsors in Riyadh and Damascus and Tehran. Operation Flytrap had been born." With U.S. soldiers as bait, "sitting ducks," as Sullivan puts it, the strategy of the U.S. is to say, in effect, "Bring 'em on!" So what if we lose a couple of hundred – or a couple of thousand – GIs in the process of springing this clever little trap. Baited with plenty of juicy young American troops, just waiting to be picked off, Iraq will attract terrorists like a dead carcass attracts flies. "Operation Flytrap" – it's enough to make any decent person gag. CLIP

Fascinating facts about forest fires
http://www.gristmagazine.com/counter/counter091003.asp
The Numbers Point to a Harsh Year of Forest Fires - It's been a devastating year of forest fires around the world, with blazes wreaking havoc from Portugal to Canada to Australia. The picture hasn't been pretty in the U.S., either. From Jan. 1 through Aug. 20 of this year, 648,768 acres of U.S. national forest land have gone up in flames. The U.S. Forest Service estimates that it will need to spend $773 million on firefighting this year, but Congress has approved only $418 million. The Wilderness Society has rounded up these and plenty more numbers on wildfires.

Security to Die For: How Americans Will be Nuked to Naked (Sept 11)

According to a recent Zogby poll, traveling Americans approve long lines and gridlock at airport passenger screening points. The majority polled appreciate delays and hassles of flying today's suspicious skies and feel safer because the federal Transportation Security Agency (TSA) is in charge of airport screening. These happy line campers should be delighted to learn about TSA's grossly invasive new security plans. The good times have just begun. TSA Security Laboratory Director Susan Hallowell recently announced the agency's intent to use back-scatter X-ray machines for passenger surveillance.

Antarctic Ozone Hole Biggest Ever (Sept 12)
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20030913/sc_nm/science_ozone_dc
LONDON (Reuters) - The gaping, man-made hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica has hit record proportions for this time of year and could get bigger still within the next few days, a leading scientist said Friday. At just short of 10.81 million square miles, the hole is a fraction under the absolute record of 11 million, but it has historically peaked in the second week in September and therefore could theoretically grow further, British Antarctic Survey (BAS) scientist Jonathan Shanklin told Reuters. "It was the largest it has ever been during August, and we are waiting to see what happens over the next few days," Shanklin told Reuters by telephone from BAS headquarters in Cambridge. The stratospheric ozone layer protects the earth's surface from damaging ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer. In 2002 the hole suddenly shrank, raising hopes it had turned the corner and was starting to close. But Shanklin said scientists now believed this was an abnormality due to atmospheric conditions, and that the 2003 expansion was back to more normal activity. Shanklin said there was no direct link between the hole and the sharp rise in skin cancers worldwide, which he said was closely linked to changing lifestyles. However, he said the general thinning of the ozone layer elsewhere because of chemical depletion was almost certainly involved in the rise. Shanklin, one of the scientists who first discovered the ozone hole in 1985, said he and his colleagues were still at a loss to explain exactly why it had got so big in August.

Pentagon funding whale song study off Australia (Sept 10)

The study included placing underwater microphones up to two kilometersmiles) offshore to pick up noises from some 2,000 whales expected to migrate along the coast over the next month, said Michael Noad. (...) "The US Navy developed very powerful low-frequency sonar to find very quiet submarines that may be hundreds if not thousands of kilometres away, so that would be extremely loud at the source," he said. "We need to find out what is happening so we can take the adequate precautions. It could be a very simple solution once we know what we need to do to help."

Subject: Clean Up Ring for the Environment - CURE
Date: 10 Sep 2003

Dear Jean,

I'm writing in response to part two of Meditation Focus #94 in which you discuss Depleted Uranium. Through a completely different avenue in my life, I received an e-mail entitled Rock Medicine. It was an interview with Sela Weidermann Randazzo the author of the book, Rock Medicine. You can read this interview at http://paulapeterson.com/Rock_Medicine.html

I have since then bought the book and only just begun to work with the healing powers of these Rocks. Spirit has spoken/ is speaking rather loudly asking me to ACT on the idea I have received.

If approximately 85 pounds of quartz ringed with lapis and containing Covellite as influence treats the entire planet for radiation toxicity. THEN, a committed group of people could Clean Up the DU problem. I wish to work towards this end. With your assistance, I wish to recruit enough people willing to set up specific crystals in a specific manner to clean up the environment. I was "told" to call it Clean Up Ring for the Environment - CURE.

My desire to do this is simply "For the Highest Good of All" to such an extent that if the Core Group sees fit to "steal" my idea and implement it themselves, I would be eternally grateful as my one handed typing skills cause my good hand to become extremely stiff. I eagerly await your/the Core Group's response to this wonderful idea.

Blessings,

Gina Villa-Grimsby

NOTE FROM JEAN: Anyone interested in Gina's proposal should write directly to her. And keep us all posted as to the results ;-)

I WAS ELATED - ALMOST CRYING - WHEN I REACHED THE END OF THIS. I BET YOU WILL TOO...

Date: 13 Sep 2003
From: Starhawk stella@mcn.org>
Subject: Cancun Update: We did it!

It’s 1:30 pm and I’m so, so happy! We did it. We got through all their security, got right up next to the convention center, and blockaded the roads for three hours, completely snarling all the traffic in the hotel zone just as the delegates were out for their dinners. All those scattered, disparate kaleidoscope pieces shifted and shook down into the perfect, perfect pattern. And up until the moment we did it, I didn’t believe we could pull it off.

Here’s how we did it:

The day begins well, with the news that a small team has hung a huge banner that says "Que les vayan todos/WTO Go Home!" on a giant crane outside the conference center. They have been dancing naked three hundred feet up in the air, and the authorities just don’t know what to do. I wake up feeling exhausted and sick, but the news cheers me up.

All day we are meeting, planning and preparing. Over breakfast, Rodrigo and I make up a new Spanish verse to one of our chants.

"Somos el viento que sopla

Al imperio que colapsa.."

"We are the wind that blows the Empire down." I’m still not sure if we have logistics or communications or a tactical plan, but at least we have a song.
The Pagan Cluster meets in the morning, practicing the song in the convergence space. We quickly firm up our logistics, and goes out to the park to do a ritual of protection and success, asking for the way to be opened and for a bit of fog around the eyes of the security personnel. The fog is necessary as we are all in our tourist garb around the convergence center all day. At home we’ve spent a good half hour advising Karla on just the right shorts to wear with her blouse, and Josh on what to do with his hair. I have this pale green pants suit that is truly the perfect outfit, it looks just like something a tourist would wear in the tropics to pretend she was having some revolutionary adventure in the jungle, but it actually has just the right pockets and roll-up sleeves and fit to be practical action garb. Come to think of it I am having some revolutionary adventure in the jungle.

The logistics are complicated, and the communication system is cumbersome, and I won’t tell you exactly what they are until after the action is over. But the basic plan is make our way there in ones or twos or small groups, on public busses or taxis or with rented cars, and then converge at the action point at the agreed-upon time. Lisa and Juniper and I look respectable but we also have Brush in our car and his best efforts at looking like a clean-cut tourist boy fall short of the mark. He’s wearing some kind of dark brown pants that look as if he’s slept too many nights in them, and a dirty brown shirt too heavy for the weather, and a string knit cap over his unwashed long hair, and altogether he looks like someone who lives in the woods. But we want him with us, because he’s brilliant and kind and we like him, and because of his excellent tactical and scouting abilities.

Juniper and put our drums in the trunk, hidden under beach towels. We provide ourselves with cover: Doritos, potato chips and Coke. We breeze through the checkpoints, and park outside the Plaza Caracol, the big shopping mall right outside the Conference Center. Lisa pulls up and parks the car right in front of a cop. People are looking up and we see the giant banner, still hanging, with the authorities unsure of how to get it down, or what to do about the climbers attached to it. We look up for a while, admiring it, the start to walk toward the mall. A young man from Indymedia who is walking around with his press pass hanging comes dashing up to Brush. "Hey, don’t you remember me?" he says loudly. "We met in jail!"

The Security forces are looking at us and I’m hoping they don’t speak English as I hustle him away. We wander around the mall for a bit, drink some coffee, wait out a sudden rainstorm. As we emerge, another dreadlocked, crusty young Indymedia friend comes dashing up to us to point out the state of the banner removal project above. We shake loose from him, now truly sure our cover is blown, then try to talk our way through police lines to go to our meeting point in the building that houses both the Hard Rock Café and the Rainforest Café. I’m trying to explain to the security guard that I need to get a T-shirt for my stepson at the Hard Rock Café, but since I’m pretending not to speak Spanish he doesn’t really understand. Finally we give up and decide to just go around the long way, back through the parking lot, across the street and through a plaza, back across the street and through a pedestrian shopping alley, and then up a metal stairway that is part of their new security installations, allowing them to barricade the street.

Now we’re having a rather hilarious interlude as various groups gather, mill around, and pretend not to know each other. Everyone seems to be in costume as surfers or some sort of tourist, looking cleaner and more spruced up than normal. Even Brush now has a new T-shirt he just bought in the mall. We carefully avoid catching each others’ eye as we stroll casually from the café to the balcony, over to the gift shop, down to the ice cream store. Lisa, Brush, Juniper and I spend a long time standing on the curb in front of the cops discussing where to ‘eat’, until we begin to feel suspicious.

Finally we decide to move the group on, to the area by the sacred Ceiba tree at the Northeast side of the convention center. This means looking for people and trying to decide how to speak to them without seeming to know them. I ask a whole lot of people for the time. Some of them even have watches. For a short while, there are all these little knots of people circulating, asking each other for the time and then asking someone else again and it must be clear, we’re sure, that something is going to happen, but it doesn’t, yet.

Juniper and Lisa head down the road to look for stragglers, and Brush and I head back across the staircase over the road, through the alley and the plaza, across the parking lot and behind the barricades to our sacred tree, where we’ve decided to form the group up. But no one else is there. Brush walks up to talk to a group of people, one of whom turns out to be some kind of security guard, but very sweet and helpful, trying to give us directions and ask us where we are going. "Where do you recommend?" I ask, but he doesn’t know the English word and we are still pretending for some reason not to speak Spanish, and we meanwhile out of the corner of my eye I’m looking for others and nobody turns up, We are closer and closer to the time the action is supposed to start, and I realize we have made a big mistake trying to move the group, that they are all probably trying to find their way around the barriers and are now scattered. We are right by our sacred tree and I go over and touch it for strength and comfort, feeling sick at heart. I go sit down, close my eyes, and visualize a circle spinning itself around all the action and the activists, bringing us together, weaving us into a whole. But more and more time is passing, and Brush and I are still alone. We call Lisa, who says she’s on her way.

I see Luis stroll up and a few others—then Rio and a group are getting into a taxi. Elizabeth comes up to tell us that Rio says the location has been changed back to the Hard Rock Café. I feel sick. It’s two minutes to action time, I don’t know where everyone is, I don’t know where everyone is supposed to be or where I’m supposed to be, or what to do.

And then, a little way up the street, five people come out into the road and form a line. The cars stop. We begin strolling, then striding, then running up to them. We skirt the barricades and take the road. A security guard tries to stop us and we weave past, stand behind the students, and begin to form a circle. Out of nowhere, others start to join us. Some sit down with the students, others join in the circle. I whip my drum out of the black bag that’s covered it, and we begin to sing and spiral. Two big busses and a mass of cars are stopped behind the students and the internationals on the front line with them. The circle grows bigger and the line grows longer and we spiral and sing, while the news media begins to gather.

"We are the rising of the moon,
We are the shifting of the ground,
We are the seed that takes root,
When we bring the fortress down…"

Now the news media are out in force, their big cameras in our faces, and crowds have gathered on the bridge and the sidewalk behind the fences. We keep dancing. The traffic is in the most glorious chaos, The convention center is in between two roads that split into a circle here on the point of the island, and a group peels off and goes over to blockade the second road. We start to see cops massed in front of us and hear rumors that others are behind us, but we just keep dancing.

And then suddenly our Green Bloc friends appear. Erik and John Henry come up through the police lines carrying two trees, a banana and an almond. They place them next to our spiral, and we move the spiral over to circle them. They become the heart of the dance, as the rest of the affinity group begins to make an ofrenda around them of corn and beans and grain, arranged in a spiral. The convention center looms up directly behind us: the fortress of power, and we have entered in behind the lines and brought the trees of life and the sacred seeds. The dance grows, and goes on and on until we are dripping wet in the sticky heat, and the sun goes down, and in the falling dark we raise a clear, beautiful tone like a sweet trumpet blast that can blow the walls of power down.

"Somos el viento que sopla,
Al imperio que colapsa.."

The students are chanting political chants in Spanish and the rhythms mesh. The police have still not moved in, and now the circle grows even bigger, so we begin to sing again and start a new, slower spiral.

"No army can hold back a thought,
No fence can chain the sea,
The earth can not be sold or bought,
All life shall be free…"

One of the Mexican delegates comes up to Rodrigo. "You know what," he says, "I’ve been in those meetings for three days, and you’re right, they are bullshit. My boss will probably fire me tomorrow, but I don’t care." He joins in the spiral dance.


Our friends who have credentials from NGOs or media are now feeding us information. Behind the wall, riot cops are massed. Down the street, they are putting up barricades. Brush, Juniper and Lisa go out to scout, and call back to give us updates. Our group gathers for a quick conference. "If you want to be sure to get out, get out now," is the advice. Some leave, but most of us stay. The students are asking for our solidarity, and while none of us want to get arrested we just can’t leave. This is a powerful moment of nonviolent direct action, completely peaceful, completely disruptive, and I am not going to walk away in the middle of it, whatever the consequences.

We begin to group up and meet. The students link up in the road, and begin to discuss what to do. Now we’re having an assembly in the road, a demonstration of democratic decision making right under the walls of the closed, autocratic meetings of the WTO. Valerie and Emily are both translating and facilitating, and doing an awesome job. We send negotiators to talk to the government and the police. They come back saying that if we leave voluntarily, we can go free. We decide to stay longer. They offer us busses to take us away. We demand to be allowed to march. Juniper, Lisa and Brush have been trapped on the other side of the barricades, and keep calling in, Lori Wallach, one of the policy experts on the WTO from the NGOs, comes over and passes on advice from the press. Maude Barlowe from the Council of Canadians is trapped on the other side of the fence, wishing she could get through to join us. The discussions take a long time. Luke, who has been one of the major movers of this action, makes a stirring speech from the front line about the wisdom of saying enough is enough, and getting on with the next day’s organizing. We continue to discuss, but finally agree to get on the busses, with media accompanying us to make sure they go where they are supposed to go.

We ride back to Cancun in a triumphal procession. The students pop through the skylights of the bus, and ride on the top, terrifying me more than the threat of riot cops. But they hang on, and we sing and chant and cheer through the long ride back around the lagoon and back up from the airport.

We arrive at Ground Zero to cheers of joy. The students are dancing on top of the busses, the Koreans and all the supporters are drumming and cheering and laughing. I get out and give Gloria a big, big hug. Many of the students who did this action were in the encampments with her and Lisa and me, and we are very, very proud of them. Everyone is hugging each other and laughing and crying tears of pure joy. I can hardly remember when else I’ve felt such pure, unadulterated happiness—except maybe in Seattle, when we shut the meeting down. It has all been worth it—the stress and the exhaustion and the sleeplessness, the fifty hours of meetings, the grueling work, the moments of frustration and near despair.  

We have shown that all their police power and weapons and barricades and fear mongering cannot, after all, keep us out, that the voice of a determined people is a force to be reckoned with, that we cannot be left out of their equations or excluded from their deliberations, that there is a power stronger than force or fear.

One of the Koreans begins beating a rhythm on his metal drum, comes over to me and motions that I should join him with my drum. We begin drumming together, and the Koreans begin dancing. They are wearing circular straw hats against the rain, and their matching beige vests emblazoned "No WTO", and they hold out their arms, waving them gracefully like the wings of leaping cranes as they rock from foot to foot. The students join in, and the rain comes down like a benediction. I pass my drum to one of the students, ,and we are a perfect multicultural mesh of Korean gongs and latin rhythms and sweating human bodies, dancing in the rain with complete, abandoned joy.

At the end of the dance, the Koreans form up in the circle and sing a Korean song and dance together. Then they motion to me that I should drum and we should sing. The Pagans form a circle and begin our song, and others join and we do another spiral under the moonlight, that gathers in all the energy and joy of our victory and raises it up in a pure release of power. In the silence after, I drop to the ground and put my hands on the earth. In many places, I’ve felt that this gesture of grounding embarrasses people, feels too conventionally religious. But here it is perfectly understood. We all touch the earth, blessing the Mother Earth, the Madre Tierra. The Koreans crouch in a deep bow. I offer gratitude to earth and wind and sky, to fire and rain and the moon and the courage in the hearts of all of our companeras and companeros who have brought us this moment of victory.  

Then the Koreans lead us over to the altar for Lee, which is covered with flowers and wreaths and banners and candles. We offer prayers and songs, and light candles. As each person places their candles, we sing a Celtic lament. When we end, the stillness is profound, and potent, like a hovering indrawn breath in the midst of the labor that will bring a new world to birth.

NOW THAT ONE ALMOST THREW ME INTO DESPAIR...

Forwarded by Ken NCEpanacea@aol.com> on Sept 10

Volume 16, Issue 37

New York Press

The Heavy Stuff: Cobalt casings and more, below the decks

My source – I’ll call him "Ethan" – is dead, and now, having kept our agreement, I’m finally free to write about this horror story.

Ethan had read about a recent decontamination drill that was conducted in Denver. A transit train was filled with mock victims and decontamination personnel. The article went on at length about the abomination of "dirty bombs" – the impetus for this drill.

It reminded Ethan of the time he was in the Marine Corps, when he was stationed on a big aircraft carrier. "Jarheads" were placed on these ships for the exclusive purpose of guarding the nukes. That, and administration.

His job was to interview Marines in order to gather information about their status, with mundane questions such as, "Do you want to continue your dental and medical coverage for your dependents this year?" and "Do you want to take your accumulated leave or cash it in?" Despite the innocuous nature of his work, he was often below decks, where the weapons holds and security personnel were. That required a Top Secret clearance.

"While that sounds super-secure," he told me, "it’s really not. You have ENTNAC clearance at the very bottom ... Then you have Secret, which for me covered my having access to everyone’s SSNs, home addresses, medical records, disciplinary records, etc. Then you have Top Secret, which you need to be around anything nuclear.

"Then you have about ten dozen higher levels of security clearance. So, Top Secret is relatively bottom-of-the-barrel stuff. Nonetheless, the NCIS [Naval Criminal Investigative Service] does go to your hometown and spends some time asking folks about you. And when the investigation is done, prior to issuing the clearance, you are sworn not to disclose certain information that the clearance exposes you to ... ever in life."

Since he was in Administration, his work took place above decks. His office was right down the hall from the Admiral’s office. He also had the benefit of having quarters right next to the officers’ staterooms. Although his was called a "duty barracks" and was not in fact a stateroom, it was the same thing, minus the mahogany. Meaning he didn’t have to sleep in steerage with the rest of the jarheads.

Ethan was also right down the hall from the Officers Club, for field grade and down. He had met an officer there who was "a cool guy" who regularly invited him to the Officers Club to play cards, smoke cigars and engage in conversation. This officer would be on duty for three days and off duty for three days, completely disappearing. It turned out that he was the officer in charge of the nuke weapons’ holds.

One day, Ethan had to get some information from the officer about a TAD (Temporary Additional Duty) request that he’d put in for. Ethan was leaving the ship to go ashore and would not see him again, so he wanted to make sure to get his request right, because he knew that his friend really wanted to stay. While the officer was in the hold, he was not, under any circumstances, allowed to leave. Ethan couldn’t reach him on the phone, so he went below.

"I’d been in most of the holds to talk to other Marines," he told me, "but I’d never been to the one where this officer worked. I went through several guarded vault-type doors and finally arrived at a duty station where, for the fifth or sixth time, I was required to show my Top Secret clearance credentials and enter the day’s pass code onto a small computer console. When I was cleared, I stated my business and was given a radiation suit – bit of a space-suit lookin’ thing."

He asked the Duty NCO (noncommissioned officer), "What the hell’s this?" Ethan had been around nukes before, but was never required to wear a suit. The Duty NCO replied only that the officer "is in with the jackets."

"The what?"

"Need to know." This meant that his station orders forbade him to discuss any details of his post.

Ethan suited up and walked into a triple- door sally-port, where he progressed through each airlock via ten-inch-thick lead-lined doors. Past the last door, he stepped into a massive room/warehouse, about 60 feet wide by 100 feet in length, with a 20-foot ceiling – huge for battleship storage-room standards. >From the floor to the ceiling, thousands upon thousands of what looked like missiles were stored. It was weird, because he’d never seen missiles stored in such a way where they were on top of one another.

The officer came around a row of missiles, and Ethan asked him the question he had for him about his TAD request, and then asked him, "What the hell kind of missiles are these?"

"Those aren’t missiles; they’re cobalt jackets."

"What are they for?"

"Well, this is ‘need to know,’ so keep your mouth shut, but they are designed to slide on over most of our conventional ordinance. They’re made out of radioactive cobalt, and when the bomb they’re wrapped around detonates, they contaminate everything in the blast zone and quite a bit beyond."

"So they turn regular ordinance into nukes?"

"No, not exactly. The cobalt doesn’t detonate itself. It just scatters everywhere."

"Well, what? Does the radiation kill people?"

"Not immediately. Cobalt jackets will not likely ever be used. They’re for a situation where the U.S. government is crumbling during a time of war, and foreign takeover is imminent. We won’t capitulate. We basically have a scorched earth policy. If we are going to lose, we arm everything with cobalt – and I mean everything; we have jackets at nearly every missile magazine in the world, on land or at sea – and contaminate the world. If we can’t have it, nobody can.

"Just another example," Ethan told me, "of what treacherous creatures our leadership is made of."

I e-mailed the above anecdote – with the subject line "Yikes!" – to no-nukes activist Harvey Wasserman, author of The Last Energy War and co-author of The Superpower of Peace. I asked him to comment in a couple of hundred words.

"‘Yikes’ is right," he responded. "This nightmare has now essentially come true with the use of depleted uranium on anti-tank and other shells in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq. The military rationale is that the super-hard depleted uranium helps shells penetrate tanks and other hard structures. But the long-term effect is that the uranium vaporizes upon explosion and contaminates everything for hundreds of yards, if not miles.

"Thus there are now whole regions that are heavily radioactive. Reports are pouring in from all three countries about soaring cancer rates, infant death rates and more. The mysterious ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ may have been caused by radiation exposure suffered by U.S. troops. So, though ‘off the books,’ the last three major U.S. attacks have in fact been nuclear in nature."

Enemies of everyone

U.S.-Israel police state shakedown menaces the entire world

By John Kaminski skylax@comcast.net

"And the first one now will later be last ..." - Bob Dylan

Along the bloody trail of human history, it is sadly ironic but perhaps somehow inevitable that the foremost champion of individual freedom and human rights has now morphed into the most dangerous menace the people of the world have ever confronted. A totalitarian society in which ordinary people have no say in the events that afflict them looms directly in front of all of us.

The United States of America was once the envy of everyone for its principles guaranteeing freedom of religion, a free press, and liberty and justice for all. But now, spurred on toward bloody coercion by its perverted ties to the insanely warlike state of Israel, the U.S.A. is now the enemy of every honest human being anywhere as it tries to conquer, coopt, and plunder every nation on Earth.

The hopeful promise at the dawn of the third millennium of the Christian era has already been bloodstained by blatant and poisonous American mass murder in two struggling states whose underprivileged inhabitants have been heartlessly slaughtered by the horrific high technology of death that is rapidly becoming known as America's leading export. These criminal tragedies are made all the more egregious - all the more a profound offense to everything humans hold sacred and meaningful- by the pathetic excuses used to justify these macabre murder festivals, shallow rationalizations that have been exposed as cruel, cynical and clumsy lies.

For the facts are clear: the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were planned long before 9/11 ever happened.

Once regarded for their fairness and compassion, the American people callously continue their conspicuous consumption, ignoring the screams of the dying as the rest of the world bleeds under the heel of a war machine that most badly brainwashed Americans rabidly endorse and support.

Americans themselves, lulled into a consumeristic coma by subtly seditious Jewish influences in media, education, and politics, are not immune from the capitalist carnage, either. They have lost their manufacturing base and their economy to the depredations of internationalist financiers, and have also been deprived of most of their Constitutional guarantees by totalitarian legislation made possible by the soul-crushing hoax known as 9/11.

As a result, in addition to destroying the nations of Afghanistan and Iraq with radioactive poisons, the U.S. is now involved in active military provocations in almost every country around the world, at least in every country not already shackled by militaristic dictatorships firmly subservient to American policy.

Significant new aggressive U.S. provocations materialized last week in Venezuela and the Philippines to go with the ongoing covert operations against Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, North Korea, Cuba, Libya, Sudan and various other struggling states in Africa, South America and Asia. In addition the U.S. has long since deployed troops and weaponry in fledgling statelets bordering the south side of Russia to intimidate that floundering superstate, and continues to flirt with a war against China over the tense issue of Taiwan.

Only in Western Europe and North America does the U.S. have nominally good relations with anyone it doesn't regularly bribe, and even in that sphere, Canada, France, and Germany are realizing the new American-Israeli police state axis could turn on them at any time.

Everyone in the world with half a brain now realizes that the genuine axis of evil is the United States, Britain and Israel, with a few pseudo-Islamic sycophants such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and wild-card sellouts like India and Australia hanging onto the coattails of the tyrannical triad, not realizing the treacherous fate that awaits them too.

So America no longer has any true friends in the world, only peasant nations desperately begging for handouts and subservient pseudo-competitors cringing in obsequious fear to a superpower gone bad.

For me as an American, the real tragedy in all this is that the very Americans who support this satanic coming-out of the U.S. as a vicious predator nation do not realize that their fate will be the same as those unfortunate residents of nations currently being victimized by American-Israeli firepower, economic genocide and political extortion.

In their unconcerned acquiescence, Americans refuse to realize that what their lying, killer government practices abroad will soon come home to roost. But even as their banking system is about to collapse in a heap of worthless paper, most Americans still have no clue that their lives are about to change forever.

Thus, as Israel's savage policies of exclusion and exploitation work to the detriment of even its own people and Jews around the world, so America's unrestrained eagerness to bomb first and never ask the right question at all is surely to ricochet inward and penalize - if not destroy - the very people who put their trust in quick-answering leaders with no moral standards other than numbers on a ledger sheet.

The rise of American power began precisely with the ascendance of the Zionist mission in the late 19th century. The worldwide marauding of America's Great White Fleet signalled the beginning of the U.S. as the most comfortable and prosperous nation in human history. American opulence was founded on plundering other nations, as the success of capitalism is predicated on exploitation of disadvantaged markets. Now, at the beginning of the 21st Century, America's crass leadership seeks to repeat and perpetuate that formula by economically indenturing all other nations, and by destroying competitive markets and keeping them in their disadvantaged positions so that international capitalism may survive like the soulless zombie it is. There seems at present to be no power on Earth that can stop this unjust plan.

Once upon a time, white European Protestant Christians plundered the Garden of Eden known as the North American continent, leaving 60 million dead and hundreds of cultures extinct. It appears Israel has followed the American model in the Middle East, inexorably exterminating the original inhabitants yet painting its warriors as freedom fighting heroes by using the media and money it controls worldwide. The current fate of the natives of Palestine is every bit as bleak as the current depressed state of the remnant populations of thoroughly demoralized Native Americans.

In recent years, America has reversed this process of teacher and pupil by emulating the behavior of the Zionist murderers. Israel has long been known for perpetrating terror against its own citizens in order to galvanize support for its illegal Zionist state. America took a page out of that book on September 11, 2001, when a high level capitalist plot destroyed its two most recognizable landmarks along with 3,000 innocent lives in New York City.

Thus the process of twinship between Americans and Israelis has come full circle as they band together to rip off the world.

America and Israel are the enemies of every country on Earth, and worse for them, they are their own worst enemies as they commit unspeakable crimes against their own citizens and similarly and falsely blame the atrocities on the dark-skinned Arab patsies whom they wish to exploit. What better way? Particularly when Zionist Americans are in control of virtually all the world's major media.

America and Israel are the enemies of everyone who seek a humane and compassionate future based on justice and freedom. While certain minorities in these two rampaging nations do seek a peaceful cessation of their warlike policies, it will nevertheless be the citizens of these two conscienceless death factories who will one day pay a very dear price for their perfidy and lack of concern and compassion for the world around them. And when that day comes, the perpetrators of their own pain, just like on 9/11, will be their very own governments.

PRISON PLANET.com Analysis

The New World Order elite has big plans for Arnold

Alex Jones
September 4 2003

Most Americans think of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a charismatic bodybuilder who became a famous Hollywood actor and then married into the Kennedy clan. Just beneath the surface of Arnold's façade lies an intricate web of evil including Nazi war criminals, occult rituals, a Rothschild rendezvous, a friendship with once head of the UN and known Nazi, Kurt Waldheim, Warren Buffett (the oracle of Omaha) and many others.

Before we cover the details of Arnold and his sordid backers it is important to understand that on one level the California recall election is a giant diversion, providing a smoke screen that obscures hundreds of pertinent developments in our world every day. The media circus feeding frenzy that has ensued is similar in scope to the O.J. Simpson and Monica Lewinsky red herrings of the past.

At the same time, the California recall of 2003, when examined from a larger perspective, reveals many of the dark workings inside the New World Order. It is important to note that even if Gray Davis stays in office or if Cruz Bustamante is elected the end result will remain the same. Whether they are Republican or Democrat, all of the candidates being given serious media attention, are anti gun, pro abortion, and promoters of big centralized government.

The giant Recall sideshow serves the elite by creating the illusion that California's problems have been caused by bad fiscal policy alone. In reality, California is an admitted beta testing model for elite social engineers.

California's border with Mexico is being dissolved. The Ford Foundation and Federal agencies have been pumping billions of dollars into California and Mexico for decades promoting racist liberation theology, through groups like Mecha and La Raza. These groups claim that the entire southwest belongs to Mexico and that third world populations are simply retaking what was usurped from their ancestors.

Groups like Mecha are designed to balkanize the population using the tried and trusted system of "Divide and Conquer." The official plan of UNESCO, a colossal UN agency, is to destroy all western nation states and the tiny independent middle class that is protected by them. The people of California are panicking as they watch factories being shut down and their jobs being shipped overseas. Their mouths are hanging open as millions of illegal aliens are given amnesty.

It is important for the puppet masters to create the illusion that they still have a choice. By blaming a scapegoat like Governor Gray Davis, the people will never actually force the system to enact real reforms.

Total Hypocrisy

The head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Rabbi Marvin Hier has defended Schwarzenegger saying that Arnold had no connection to Nazis. Of course the fact that Arnold has tithed a percentage of every film he has starred in (reportedly over 5 million dollars) in the last eighteen years to the Simon Wiesenthal Center does a lot to explain why the Simon Wiesenthal Center gave him their highest award (The National Leadership Award) in 1997.

The facts speak for themselves. Arnold's father, Gustav Schwarzenegger volunteered to join the Austrian Nazi party when it was still illegal to do so in 1938. His father went on to be the Police Chief in the town of Thal bei Graz where Arnold grew up.

The media has skillfully focused on his father and away from all the real Nazi connections and said "Arnold can't help what his daddy did." But what they don't tell you about is that Arnold is a self proclaimed follower of Kurt Waldheim. Kurt Waldheim was a favorite of the United Nations and served as Secretary General from 1972 to1982. When Waldheim ran for the Presidency of Austria in 1986, Arnold was Waldheim's biggest supporter and campaigned across Austria and was even featured on campaign posters.

During the campaign it emerged that he had been a wanted war criminal for atrocities he had commanded as an officer in the dreaded Nazi SS. Waldheim had written and approved posters and leaflets that read among many things, "enough of the Jewish war, kill the Jews, come over."

Later the whole world learned that the United Nations had known all along that Kurt Waldheim was a Nazi and a wanted war criminal and helped cover it up. It makes sense, anyone with a command and control background fits in well with the UN.

The Waldheim story that broke in 1986 was a sensation and dominated news cycles for months. In the midst of the fire storm Arnold Schwarzenegger stood up at his wedding with Marie Shriver in front of a crowd of east coast blue bloods and said, "My friends don't want me to mention Kurt's name because of all the recent Nazi stuff and the UN controversy, but I love him and Marie does too, and so thank you, Kurt."

Arnold continues to be friends with Waldheim and in 1998 was photographed with him at the Austrian Parliament. After Arnold's father died, his mother married the Head of the Austrian Parliament, who himself was a Colonel in the SS. Arnold reportedly calls him Uncle. While filming the documentary "Pumping Iron," Arnold told reporters he admired Adolf Hitler and other dictators.

While the Simon Wiesenthal Center is defending Arnold, they are busy waging a smear campaign against Mel Gibson for producing a biblically accurate reenactment of the last day of Christ's life, in his new movie, The Passion. The ADL and the Simon Wiesenthal Center have demanded Gibson re-edit the film, threatening to boycott its release and are claiming that the film has already generated hatred, despite the fact that only a few thousand people have seen it in private screenings.

It is interesting to note that the ADL was also instrumental in forcing the removal of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court building. Over and over we see real Nazis, communists, and totalitarian thugs of every type being promoted and defended by the establishment while wholesome organizations are being demonized.

This is one of the New World Orders favorite tactics. So be aware that next time you hear of someone being labeled a promoter of hate that the majority of the time such labels are issued by the establishment in an attempt to suppress any movement seeking freedom.

I personally talked to Mel Gibson's father, Hutton and he told me that The Passion is the best film he has ever seen. He says it is word for word from the Bible.

Satanic Rituals-Elite Backers

A month before Schwarzenegger announced that he was throwing his hat into the ring, it was being reported by most of the national media that Arnold was not going to run. Infowars.com came across an article in the July 23, 2003 San Francisco Chronicle, that contradicted the prevailing view of the political guru's.

The article reported, "From what we hear the Republican hierarchy would favor Schwarzenegger." At least that's the word that came out of the Bohemian Grove this past weekend, where a number of state and national GOPers, including presidential adviser Karl Rove, happened to be gathered at a club getaway."

Of course the Bohemian Club favors Arnold: he married into an Illuminati bloodline in 1986, and soon after became a member of the Grove.

After reading the story, I predicted on my radio show that Arnold would run, because of my knowledge of the ultra-elite Bohemian Grove in Sonoma County, in northern California. I knew that what these king-makers want, they get. (The Bohemian Grove is an elite encampment founded in 1872. Presidents have been attending the yearly fifteen day meeting since 1901).

In 2000 (two weeks before the official announcement was made) CNN reported that Dick Cheney was to be George W. Bush's running mate.. CNN said that they had garnered the information from network executives present at the Bohemian Grove's encampment where they learned of the choice of Cheney from George Hubert Walker Bush and Collin Powell.

This is not the first big political decision to be made by a select few at this all-male elite gathering. According to annuals published by Bohemian Club, the Star Wars program was hatched there in 1978 and the Manhattan Project were conceived at the Grove. Economist Alan Greenspan made his first visit to the Bohemian Grove, in 1984 before it was announced that he was being appointed Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

On July 15, 2000 I infiltrated the Bohemian Grove with a hidden video camera, and filmed a grizzly 3,000 year old satanic ritual being performed by leaders of the western world. The footage I shot aired globally on stations like Channel 4 in England and the Trio Network in the United States. Of course none of the big networks whose corporate officers attend the Grove would touch it here in the United States.

Dark Secrets Inside the Bohemian Grove, an in-depth exposé of these desperately degenerate men, is available from Infowars.com. The Washington Times, Spy magazine, and many other prestigious publications have reported on the homosexual orgies and bizarre rituals that take place at the Grove. Respected papers have documented the migration of high dollar male and female prostitutes from Europe and America yearly to the nearby town of Monte Rio, that serves as a watering hole for the members of the all-male Bohemian Club (a club made up of our so-called Christian conservative leaders). Conveniently none of these despicable details of the Grove have been discussed in the controlled media.

Schwarzenegger's connections do not stop at the Grove. An article published by Reuters, titled, "Buffett's back with the Terminator," described Arnold and Warren Buffett descending by helicopter to a meeting at the ancestral home of the Rothschild Dynasty.

The article stated that, "Among those invited to Waddesdon manor were the likes of James Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, Jorma Ollila, chief executive of Nokia and De Beers chairman Nicky Oppenheimer" (head of the world diamond monopoly). The story continued to describe how the Illuminati "chieftain" greeted Arnold, " A group of photographers captured the moment when Buffett and Schwarzenegger, resplendent in steel-tipped cowboy boots, stepped onto Waddesdon's freshly cut lawn to be greeted by Lord Jacob Rothschild. "It's very nice of you to host this," Schwarzenegger said.

Wow, it really makes your head spin. This guy hangs out with former UN chiefs and the Rothschilds. His mother is married to the head of the Austrian Parliament and he is married to JFK's niece. Nevertheless, all his Nazi connections are swept under the rug and the Republican party could care less about Arnold's own published admissions of orgies, drug use, and posing naked for homosexual porno magazines.

(Well, after all, he is a member of the Bohemian Grove where group sex is par for the course.)

In a 1977 interview for OUI magazine, published by Playboy, Arnold described to a national magazine how he and many other men all piled on one woman, at Gold Gym's in Venice. When asked whether he used drugs, Schwarzenegger replied "yes, grass and hash." Schwarzenegger then went on to describe how posing for gay magazines was a great thing.

Can you imagine what would happen to an anti-establishment candidate if they had 10% of the baggage that Arnie does? They would be dragged through the mud and their political career would disintegrate. But if you are a water bearer for globalist's fat cats, you can do no wrong. Kurt Waldheim was a Nazi soaked in blood and the UN loved and defended him. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, received and gave awards to Adolf Hitler and was responsible for barbaric eugenic programs nationwide. But it's okay, because they work for the New World Order.

You won't see any liberals complaining about these people, but if you say America should have borders, that citizens should retain our Second Amendment Rights, or if you criticize the murdering UN, they will howl that you are a secret Nazi. No my friends, they are the control freak Nazi's. Neo-Cons, bleeding heart liberals: they are all either part of the criminal structure or are useful idiots, too narrow minded to break out of their controlled paradigm and face the true horror of the global plantation.

Schwarzenegger's role as a front man for the evilarchy is growing larger every day.

Articles in the Associated Press, LA Weekly, and the LA Times reported that during the electricity crisis of 2001, the head of Enron, Ken Lay, met secretly with California Republicans at the Beverly Hills Hotel and pushed a plan that called for taxpayers to pay the billions in debts racked up by the states public utilities. Schwarzenegger was part of the closed door meeting where convicted Junk-Bond felon Michael Milken, and other seedy members of the establishment schemed in an attempt to keep the fraudulent deregulation going.

President Benedict Arnold?

An Associated Press article carried in The Salt Lake City Tribune ran the headline, "Hatch for foreign-born hopefuls." The article continued,"Senator Orrin Hatch wants to terminate the Constitutional prohibition against foreign-born citizens such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and others from becoming president."

The Second Article of the Constitution states, "No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this constitution, shall be eligible to the office of the president."

Alabama Professor of History, Forrest McDonald said that, when the Constitution was written, foreign agents from Russia, Prussia, and Austria worked to get a monarch to control Poland. Once consent had been manufactured, the country was carved into three pieces. Of course, the support for scrapping Article II is bi-partisan. Arkansas Democrat, (Rep) Vick Snyder is peddling the same type of bill.

Look at Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial team, it is a who's who of king-makers like former Secretary of State, George Shultz, who is also a member of the Bohemian Grove. Shultz told the San Francisco Chronicle, that he was the one that gave the green light when he ascertained George W. Bush was ready to run for President.

The most amazing thing of all is that so called "conservatives" on talk radio, in print and on television are hailing Arnold as the savior of California. Benedict Arnold has already told us his stance: total amnesty for all illegal aliens, new waves of gun control, and abortion on demand.

By watching California all Americans can get a good idea of what the controllers have in store for the rest of the country. Our elections have turned into giant theatrical diversions, with no real difference between the candidates that the media chooses to focus on.

Whether you are Republican or Democrat you need to reject Cruz Bustamante, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Gray Davis. They are all nothing more than marionettes and it is time to look past their carnival show, to follow the strings back to the fat spider in the corner and reveal the cynical military-pharmacologica-mass-media-industrial complex supporting them. If we do not cause a revelation in the political and sociological thinking of the average person, we are going to plunge headlong into a dark age of dehumanization and total enslavement.

Exploiting the Atrocity

September 12, 2003

By PAUL KRUGMAN

In my first column after 9/11, I mentioned something everyone with contacts on Capitol Hill already knew: that just days after the event, the exploitation of the atrocity for partisan political gain had already begun. In response, I received a torrent of outraged mail. At a time when the nation was shocked and terrified, the thought that our leaders might be that cynical was too much to bear. ''How can I say that to my young son?'' asked one furious e-mailer.

I wonder what that correspondent thinks now. Is the public - and the news media - finally prepared to cry foul when cynicism comes wrapped in the flag? America's political future may rest on the answer.

The press has become a lot less shy about pointing out the administration's exploitation of 9/11, partly because that exploitation has become so crushingly obvious. As The Washington Post pointed out yesterday, in the past six weeks President Bush has invoked 9/11 not just to defend Iraq policy and argue for oil drilling in the Arctic, but in response to questions about tax cuts, unemployment, budget deficits and even campaign finance. Meanwhile, the crudity of the administration's recent propaganda efforts, from dressing the president up in a flight suit to orchestrating the ludicrously glamorized TV movie about Mr. Bush on 9/11, have set even supporters' teeth on edge.

And some stunts no longer seem feasible. Maybe it was the pressure of other commitments that kept Mr. Bush from visiting New York yesterday; but one suspects that his aides no longer think of the Big Apple as a politically safe place to visit.

Yet it's almost certainly wrong to think that the political exploitation of 9/11 and, more broadly, the administration's campaign to label critics as unpatriotic are past their peak. It may be harder for the administration to wrap itself in the flag, but it has more incentive to do so now than ever before. Where once the administration was motivated by greed, now it's driven by fear.

In the first months after 9/11, the administration's ruthless exploitation of the atrocity was a choice, not a necessity. The natural instinct of the nation to rally around its leader in times of crisis had pushed Mr. Bush into the polling stratosphere, and his re-election seemed secure. He could have governed as the uniter he claimed to be, and would probably still be wildly popular.

But Mr. Bush's advisers were greedy; they saw 9/11 as an opportunity to get everything they wanted, from another round of tax cuts, to a major weakening of the Clean Air Act, to an invasion of Iraq. And so they wrapped as much as they could in the flag.

Now it has all gone wrong. The deficit is about to go above half a trillion dollars, the economy is still losing jobs, the triumph in Iraq has turned to dust and ashes, and Mr. Bush's poll numbers are at or below their pre-9/11 levels.

Nor can the members of this administration simply lose like gentlemen. For one thing, that's not how they operate. Furthermore, everything suggests that there are major scandals - involving energy policy, environmental policy, Iraq contracts and cooked intelligence - that would burst into the light of day if the current management lost its grip on power. So these people must win, at any cost.

The result, clearly, will be an ugly, bitter campaign - probably the nastiest of modern American history. Four months ago it seemed that the 2004 campaign would be all slow-mo films of Mr. Bush in his flight suit. But at this point, it's likely to be pictures of Howard Dean or Wesley Clark that morph into Saddam Hussein. And Donald Rumsfeld has already rolled out the stab-in-the-back argument: if you criticize the administration, you're lending aid and comfort to the enemy.

This political ugliness will take its toll on policy, too. The administration's infallibility complex - its inability to admit ever making a mistake - will get even worse. And I disagree with those who think the administration can claim infallibility even while practicing policy flexibility: on major issues, such as taxes or Iraq, any sensible policy would too obviously be an implicit admission that previous policies had failed.

In other words, if you thought the last two years were bad, just wait: it's about to get worse. A lot worse.

Last Rights

By Chris Floyd

The Moscow Times

9-14-3

Once again, the dispiriting spectacle of the American media in full campaign cry is upon us, as coverage of the 2004 presidential race begins in earnest. But this time around, the usual inanities, inaccuracies and insipidities have a more melancholy flavor, an almost elegiac feel. It's like watching priests of a dead cult, vacantly enacting their rituals in a ruined temple whose gods have been broken, desecrated and cast down.

The difference from past campaigns lies in the media mandarins' sad belief that there will actually be a genuine, open, presidential election in November 2004. This childlike faith stems, of course, from their equally fallacious conviction that the United States did not suffer a coup d'etat in December 2000 at the hands of an extremist faction of elites.

Although the installation of second-place finisher George W. Bush was engineered in a wholly unprecedented and unconstitutional manner -- from the illegal purging of more than 90,000 eligible, predominantly black voters from the Florida rolls by Jeb Bush to the violent mobs of Republican congressional staffers paid by George Bush to break up the vote recounts in Miami to the threats of military insurrection muttered by Bush Family factotum General Norman Schwarzkopf to the use of Republican-paid ex-CIA operatives to "correct" 15,000 Florida absentee ballots to the Supreme Court ruling that unlawfully halted the Florida recount by citing a totally fictitious deadline for final tallies, down to the congressional session that officially "ratified" the election result, held in an half-empty chamber lacking the legally required quorum -- America's media leaders insist there was no coup because power was transferred "without tanks in the streets."

But of course, a classic coup is "not necessarily assisted by either the intervention of the masses or, to any significant degree, by military-type force." It's an inside job, carried out by factions within the elite. Who says? The man who literally wrote the book on the subject: right-wing guru -- and Pentagon advisor -- Edward Luttwak.

In 1968, Luttwak penned "Coup d'Etat: A Practical Handbook," which could be the text of the 2000 Bush campaign, as John Dee reports in Lumpen magazine. Drawing on the extensive experience of the CIA in such pranks, Luttwak says that "a coup consists of the infiltration of a small but critical segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder." True coupsters "want to seize power within the present system" [his italics], then use the existing lines of authority and habits of obedience inherent in legitimate government to advance their own illegitimate aims.

Propaganda and false patriotism are key coup ingredients. Luttwak says a coup's "information campaign" must "reassure the general public by dispelling fears that the coup is inspired by extremist elements, and to persuade particular groups that the coup is not a threat to them. The first aim will be achieved by manipulating national symbols and by asserting our belief in the prevailing pieties." United we stand!

Meanwhile, Luttwak explains, opponents of the coup must be painted as isolated cranks, "a few misguided or dangerous individuals," unable to "move on" and accept the wonderful new reality. Reports of opposition must be "withheld" whenever possible; failing that, they must be marginalized and belittled, because "news of any resistance against us would act as a powerful stimulant to further resistance by breaking down this feeling of isolation."

We know that Bush never reads any book that doesn't have pictures of goats in it, but it's clear that Dick Cheney has had a well-thumbed copy of Luttwak's handbook in his back pocket for years. The 2000 coup was carried out along Luttwakian lines by a small group of ideologues and elitists -- the latter drawn largely from the energy and defense industries -- seeking to advance their illegitimate aim of global domination by military force and control of the world's energy resources.

These objectives were no secret. Since 1992, Cheney, Don Rumsfeld and a gaggle of other dominionists now in power aired their plans publicly via a web of corporate-funded pressure groups. These documents -- including their chilling call in September 2000 for a "new Pearl Harbor" to shock Americans into supporting rapacious dominion schemes -- provided a blueprint that the coup-makers have followed with remarkable fidelity. The truth was there for anyone to see. But it was ignored by the dim-witted, well-wadded corporate media -- whose owners, drooling over Bush promises of mega-mergers and deregulation, were easily persuaded that the takeover "was not a threat to them."

It's dangerously naive to believe that such a gang, coming to power in such a fashion, will allow a legitimate electoral contest to take place next year. They have too much to lose. They haven't expended so much effort -- and so many thousands of innocent lives -- to build this vast engine of repression and profit only to turn it over to Howard Dean or John Kerry, just because the stupid American people say so.

So yes, there will be an "election" -- with conventions, debates, ads, voting, the whole schmeer. But as Josef Stalin once said: "It's not the votes that count, it's who counts the votes." And in 2004, most votes will be "counted" by paperless, unverifiable, eminently hackable computer systems, privately owned and secretly programmed by Bush supporters from the Religious Right and the military-intelligence complex.

Again, this is no "conspiracy theory"; it's all out in the open -- for anyone who cares to look. Next week, we'll do just that. Stay tuned.

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

The fixed population of both World Trade Center towers (8am) on Sept 11, 2001: 38,500
Visitors at any one time during the day: 3,900
TOTAL population: 42,400

Experts' initial estimate of total killed: 6,000
Total deaths recorded as of this date: 2,800
Total Israeli people killed: 1

Evacuation experts estimate buildings were only 30% occupied: 2,720
Those absent from work that day: 29,680

One Israeli National died in the WTC. Many didn't show up that day - the Odigo Instant Messaging apparently gave a two-hour warning prior to the attacks.
