the historic day of 9-11 - and particularly in more recent months
- reams of
filmed documentaries, professorial presentations, and alternative
media interviews have dealt with the contradictions, omissions, oversights,
and plain spin of the “official story.” For many, this
official story lost any credibility long before the first sentence
was written because the Bush Administration attempted to appoint
Henry Kissinger as the top juggler of the conjectural fabrication.
Somehow, starting with a conclusion and working backwards did not
create an end product that many could swallow – unless they liked the conclusion. A “conclusion” that
would allow those in denial of the obvious to focus their detestation on someone
comfortable to hate - Someone “outside” wearing a black hat. Ironically,
the only defense the official story seems to have left is the accusatory “tin
foiled hat” pronouncement made on those refusing to swallow the kool-aid.
Information, disinformation, false information, counter-information, theories,
and pseudo-theories have flowed through the various alternative-media channels.
The smokiness of the mirrors has invariably caused many a Joe Six Pack to
reach for the remote and change the subject. For others, sorting through
it all has
been an obsession. Some appear to approach it as something akin to a hobby.
Many who were born and bred via the idiot box see the subject as little more
Yet, for most who have pursued the subject with even a modicum of reason,
the dust particles have seemed to have settled and created a foundation on
the building of profound ramifications can be built. A foundation that has
led to overcoming a denial that kept us from even imagining the horrors of
the Bush administration is capable. A denial that prevented us from seeing
that we are constantly being lied to and manipulated on nearly all issues.
The dots that comprise our total sense of reality then became
connected with new lines – lines not drawn in sands
that wash away with the next tide, but lines that become
the cemented architectural design of a new foundation that
describes the reality in which we live.
One could think of this new perspective
as “Blow-back.” A reaction first caused by the uncreative lies
about 9-11, and then soon reinforced by the magnified spins this administration
attached to every other action and issue.
The basis for the foundation starts with more than an assumption
or some kind of speculative premise. It starts with the obvious:
The Official Story is Bogus
Maximus. Navigating through the non-sense of disinformation, it becomes
apparent that, at the very least, some type of “inside” coordination and cooperation
was required. Osama couldn’t have ordered the NORAD planes to hold
off, and then tell them to go ahead - but travel at only 24% of their
top speed -
to protect the capitol. Procedures are written, drilled, and automatic – hard
wired, like a knee jerk reaction.
Then we have real questions regarding the ability of a plane, and its jet
fuel, to take down the WTC towers (and WTC 7 without even hitting it).
not only planning, but also preparation prior to 9-11. There are even major,
well-founded questions regarding what actually hit the Pentagon. But, I
digress. The information need not be repeated here. It is out there for
to take the time to sort through it all.
When we stick our heads out from under the rubble of the collapsed house
of cards built on the “official story,” we can see a horizon
described by generations of conspiracy theorists. We can even hear echoes
of the infamous
Warren Report. We recall Daddy Bush at the United Nations on 9-11-91 speaking
of the New World Order. Our imaginations can run wild, but they can be
harnessed by verifiable reality.
While we see 9-11-01 as a historical day, when we dig deeper, free of the
shackles of denial, we recognize that it was not a pivotal point. Direction
completely new social structure had been in the process of being implemented
and gently - long before that date. Although a turbo-charged acceleration
toward this veiled change was implemented on that fateful day, no deviation
original road map occurred – the course was staid.
Once free of denial, we cast the official story of 9-11 aside and identify
the dancing authors of this fictional side step from reality. The realism
today and tomorrow then becomes apparent – not easily acceptable or digestible – painful,
in fact – but the denial is gone. We can now accept the fact that
Criminals who recognize no moral or principled boundaries have absconded
with the country.
Our unshielded eyes now see horrors that were once the fiction of 1984,
THX1138, or some Twilight Zone in our distant memory.
For those who have transcended the programmed denial, the dust that emanated
from the demolition of the towers was not just debris. It was a genie being
loosed from a bottle – a genie that has guided us in connecting dots
that were never before connected.
We see that we were lied into an illegal war for reasons that change every
day: Fighting terrorism, stopping a threat to the United States, Spreading
Liberating Iraq, over throwing a brutal dictator, and on and on. And a
merry little band of hand puppets consistently sing the epilog of every
that we’ve checked in, we cannot leave.” Some how they have
Iraq confused with the Hotel California. Then an echo of the Bush March
17, 2003 speech surges
forward in our memory – “Do not destroy the oil wells.”
With denial shoved aside, we can now accept the fact that most of our media
is controlled by six major corporations, and hardly a source for real information.
We recall that NBC is 80% owned
by General Electric – a major defense contractor – and
we wonder what their “embedded” reporters will report. We then
connect additional dots; the centralization of media started with Reagan,
headway under Clinton, and was ready to roll for 9-11.
With our shackles of denial removed, we could accept that fact that the
headline phrase of “War on Terrorism” is totally bogus – like
the war on drugs. We also glean that it provides those in power with a
rationale, or a false
justification, to limit our freedoms and privacy - while not providing
any additional security. The president has used this excuse to wire tap
anybody he wants without
a court order. He can categorize any person he pleases as a “terrist.” Once
done, all rights, human and legal, can be torn from any individual, U.S.
citizen, or not.
Attorney General Gonzales will testify before the Judiciary Committee,
but not under oath – taking an oath to tell the truth would undermine our battle
with terrorists – and that’s bad for the war. Yet, with eye’s
unshielded by denial, we see the word “Accountability” flicker
In our war with terrorists, the Granny with the blue hair needs to be searched
at the airport, but Dubai can own our ports. Only 5% of ship containers
are inspected, our boarders are wide open, all while the FBI
spies on war protesters and monitors what library books you check out.
If you pay over $5000 on your credit card, Homeland Security will place
on your check and investigate. Yes, Big Brother is watching. You can
Osama will be paying only his minimum from here on out. That is indeed
a striking blow to terrorists. Financial responsibility is now a terrorist
act – not
a conservative value. It seems like the government won’t count our
votes anymore, but it will tally our dollars.
Speaking of our votes; Grave questions about the voting machines and election
results color our doubts about our democracy to it’s bare core. The
Tri-fecto of Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia will count nearly all the votes
in the country if the Bushies have their way. Diebold and ES&S were
Bankrolled by Howard Ahmanson – a religious wacko who supports totalitarian
theocracy. Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold, Inc., is one of Bush’s
top campaign contributors. Sequoia is owned by a partner of the Carlyle
Group – Daddy
Bush was once a senior advisor for this war profiteering group, and still
has an equity stake in the firm.
The questions of representative government grow beyond vote counting. The
revolving personnel door between the high echelons of the corporate world
and top level
government appointed positions is spinning so fast it is hard to keep track
of the elitists comings and goings. Top executives from various industries
the high towers of government; write the rules that will regulate those
industries, and then return to their corporate castles with a badge of
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, corporate lobbyists run around buying representation
the proletariat used to own. We then have to wonder if our votes count,
even if they are not counted by Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia.
We are told the economy is strong and growing. However, we are no longer
in denial, and recognize when we are being lied to by the circus hucksters
dressed in photo-op
surroundings. The country is verging on bankruptcy while the middle class
(the same middle class that Thomas Jefferson said was required for true
representative democracy) disintegrates because of tax breaks to the rich,
the export of
wage jobs, and billions spent to lose an illegal war.
They can tell us torture is now a Christian value. They can even say that
Napalm under a different name is legal and Depleted Uranium is healthy.
cannot say that they have us fooled any longer.
We have transcended our denial, and what we see is ugly.
