- "Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When
you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when
you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men
who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those that
deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by
graft and pull tan by work, and your laws don't protect you against them,
but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and
honesty becoming self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."
-- Ayn Rand (from "Capitalism: The
- For some reason - perhaps it's just the passing of time
- it has now become somewhat fashionable - or at least permissable - to
criticize the utterly insane, totally criminal and horrifically inhuman
performance by what is known colloquially in Washington these days as the
- Yet because of the eager cheering of the television networks
covering up bestial carnage by U.S. troops upon hapless citizens of defenseless
countries, and the continuing lawless behavior of those in charge of our
nation's laws, nothing significant has yet been accomplished by those throwbacks
like you and me still clinging to the faded, prostituted dream of liberty
and justice for all upon which our country was ostensibly founded.
- True, there has been some tongue-wagging about how America
dropped its radioactive torture on Afghanistan and Iraq after telling whoppers
of lies that never would have gone unchallenged in an eighth-grade debate
class, but nevertheless managed to hold spellbound the entire American
populace while these evil massacres took place.
- But the identification of the nub of the problem that
has turned America from a promising melting pot of financial and social
opportunity into a grim gulag of greed and graft is still very far from
- And it may never happen. It never has yet. All those
famous crimes we all talk about have never been solved. At least no actual
perpetrator has ever been charged, though a few convenient patsies have
- The intense flag waving and hyped-up security measures
- accompanied by the flaunted but bogus claims of less liberty means more
safety - continue to inhibit public debate on these matters, as is evidenced
by the focus on irrelevant issues by the current pack of Democratic presidential
panderers, who like the rest of the country, are simply too insincere to
admit that behind the red, white and blue bunting lies a bloodthirsty beast
which is now cannibalizing even its own citizens in its desperate effort
to sate the infinite appetites of the trillionaires who run the war machine.
- Sure, questions are being asked about the lies used to
justify the wars, but the men who do the lying continue to victimize the
folks who do the dying, both at home and abroad. No one of any social consequence
in the entire world has yet seriously questioned the single, suspicious
event that enabled - by the patriotic mobilization of public opinion -
America to come out of the closet as a worldwide murder-for-hire operation.
- And amid talk of treasonous illegal procedure in the
outing of an ambassador's wife who may have been a CIA operative, there
still is no discussion of the core issues that have catapulted this relatively
trivial matter to the top of the the newscasts. The criminals have yet
to be caught, because, unfortunately for everyone, they are the ones who
are running the police and the army, not to mention the TV networks and
- But foremost among the silently complicit are the brainwashed
American people, who accept their watered down news like the prisoners
they are, eating pathetic bioengineered gruel from cardboard boxes in their
sad towns with abandoned department stores, no decent jobs, and starving
- How is it that wide-eyed young journalists can graduate
from America's finest colleges (not Harvard; that's an Israeli school now)
and know about U.S. troops laughing during target practice on unarmed Iraqi
civilians and simply turn their heads away and not write those stories
because they accept the perverted propaganda of national security justifying
the massacre of innocent civilians?
- How is it that churchgoing American parents can let their
beloved children put on their proud uniforms when they know - or should
know! - that those kids are going to be cursed with lifelong diseases caused
by the vaccines they are forced to take and the poisonous ammunition they
are commanded to handle?
- How is that our most respected statesmen and religious
leaders can remain silent when they know that the evidence of the biggest,
most horrendous crime in American history was deliberately destroyed without
a thorough forensic examination which could have revealed how that crime
was committed, can remain silent when their government tells millions of
people that their air is safe to breathe when it wasn't, can remain silent
when the big pharmaceutical companies give court-ordered vaccinations to
children that turn many of them into vegetables, and the grieving parents
can't even sue the makers of the poison?
- How is it that the American people can have available
to them infrared footage of the Waco massacre that shows federal agents
putting bullets into the heads of little children, that they can have documented
evidence of respected generals explaining how multiple bombs were attached
to the stanchions of that building in Oklahoma City, that they can see
convincing photographs that prove that none of the three planes that took
off full of happy people on that sunny morning of September 11, 2001 were
the same planes that hit their bloody targets ... how is it the American
people can turn away from these things and not go ... ?
- Those well-meaning people around the world who carefully
stipulate that it's not the behavior of the American people they object
to, but the behavior of the American government that upsets them so ...
those people are wrong.
- Something has curdled in the American bloodstream.
- Honesty and integrity of purpose are now merely historical
relics in a seldom-visited museum that now also houses the American Constitution.
- Maybe there are too many nuclear power plants reducing
the number of brain cells in the typical American cerebellum. Maybe it's
the food additives, the antidepressants, the electric power lines, the
cellphones, HAARP, subliminal images in advertising, backward masking in
the music, the elimination of important historical facts in our school
textbooks (anybody know about the Santa Clara decision? most important
law change in American history), the childhood immunizations, the flouride
in the water ... this list could fill a book.
- And everything on this list, from aspartame to phthlates,
has had a debilitating effect on the American psyche, warped it in the
minds of our soldiers from someone who would protect and defend the people's
God-given rights to home and happiness to someone who mistakenly hallucinates
real people with kerchiefs and lollipops into lifeless figures in a video
game, which become lifeless figures on a forlorn desert roadway quickly
forgotten on the way back to camp to get high.
- Certainly the schools have something to do with it, and
the media as well, as both have altered the American psyche from one of
compassionate seeker of justice to self-destructive, self-hating narcissist.
- Hmm, sounds like somebody we know, doesn't it? Can you
- And we arrive the big issue, the one they call you an
anti-Semite for talking about. Think about it, my friends. All the media,
all the schools, all the hospitals, all the movies, the entire nation's
phone system. Much, very much of the government.
- The American mindset has changed over the past 40 years
from live and let live to follow the orders of our leaders, even if we
know they are lying. Did you ever wonder why that happened? Did you ever
wonder who did that?
- Did you ever wonder who is working so hard to turn our
teenage daughters into prostitutes on the covers of national magazines
and the walkways of our glittering malls? Whom do you suppose owns those
magazines, those malls?
- In the same way we took worthless land in America and
imprisoned our continent's original inhabitants, now in Israel they are
building giant walls to quarantine the world's inconvenient people, the
ones who used to own that land before it was stolen from them. When these
same walls start going up in America, you'll know the game is really over.
Right now, all we have are numerous chain-link fence enclosures topped
with razor wire ready to contain our own inconvenient people.
- The future of the United States is already scrawled in
blood-soaked grafitti on the hearts of its cowardly citizenry. Do not resist.
There is nothing you can do. Narc on your neighbor.
- American Satyricon, the story of an emperor gone mad
cheered by a people gone bad, wrapped in the red, white and blue called
Old Glory by some, but called something worse, something very much worse
by most of the rest of the world.
- To be continued - time, the decaying biosphere, and the
sadistic government permitting.

- Just thought you'd all like to know that I've been getting
anonymous threatening phone calls from several people who accuse me of
hating Jews. Since I have a cellphone, no one should have access to my
number, but Israel controls most of the phones in the U.S. These people
never tell me their names. These phone calls are characterized by the foulest
language and an unwillingness to dialogue. I've been expecting them, and
they're here. This is the way some Jews wish to debate, by smearing and
silencing all opposition to their criminal endeavors. Just the way they
treat the rest of the world, as dumb cattle who it's OK to rob and murder.
Just a reminder of what happened to me when they find me with six .22 slugs
in the back of my head. Jewish justice...a threat to everyone in the whole
