The Beginning of the End

It couldn’t really be more perfect. A perusal of right and left outlets and opinion on Facebook shows the “game” has really been stepped up.

Anti-government sentiment will be so high in the coming years that people will be clamoring for multinational control. They pretty much have it now, but I mean direct control. Control of resources, control of masses via control of food, “news”/propaganda, gas, lodging, work, and who goes in the slammer and who gets to watch those in the slammer because, you know, unemployment rate due to outsourcing, automation and over-working the remaining human work force.

Taking a sharp turn, you can get the general idea of where things are gonna go by reading Peter Watts’ Rifters trilogy, or watching SyFy’s Incorporated. You can also watch some of history repeat itself via Taboo, when the East India Company ruled the world.

We’re just too gullible, too willing to accept what the people who are leading us to the cliff say is the problem and who is responsible for it. Let me straighten that out for you. Not that you’ll listen, not that you’ll understand.

It’s power. It’s always power. And today more than ever there’s a very big gap between those who have it and those who don’t. And they have every institution that is supposed to be an impediment to having it absolutely on their side.

C’est fini.

What Oath?

From indy news. No, this is not my fiction site.

TruthDig – Redacted FBI Documents Show Plot to Kill Occupy Leaders If ‘Deemed Necessary’

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Washington, D.C.-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund yielded an FBI document containing knowledge of a plot by an unnamed group or individual to kill “leaders” of the Houston chapter of the nonviolent Occupy Wall Street movement.

There’s some debate as to whether or not the assassination plot was somehow government by proxy as opposed to just sitting back and letting it happen. A rather severe violation of the First and Fourth, wouldn’t you say? Possibly behavioral modification related, but hard to say unless/until the organization and individuals involved are revealed.

Firedoglake – CIA Agents Were Embedded With NYPD And Had “No Limits”

That officer believed there were “no limitations” on his activities, the report said, because he was on an unpaid leave of absence, and thus exempt from the prohibition against domestic spying by members of the C.I.A.

When I discovered that kind of thing, working for the US government without pay, I called it a violation of the 14th Amendment. At least some of what they were up to was terrorism-related (but only some) and it was apparently put to an end after “only” eleven years of it.

Firedoglake – CIA Anti-Leaking Campaign Memo Leaked

CIA Director John Brennan…has launched an anti-leaking program inside the CIA called the “Honor the Oath” campaign.

The oath he is referring to in his memo has to do with secrecy in CIA’s “corporate culture.” It is not, as the first commenter points out, like this one that most federal public servants take, including Congress, Mr. Brennan, and the President that includes all of the Bill of Rights:

“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Unless, of course, you agree with Alberto Gonzalez that the portion where the President is charged with protecting the nation makes null and void everything else, and you define “nation” as something other than citizens of the nation. Basically if you accept the premise that words have no meaning, mean whatever you decide they do in the moment.

And one more, a man who wrote chalk on the sidewalk outside a San Diego Bank of America office faces up to thirteen years in prison:

DailyKos – Jeff Olson Petition

Note that BOA is one of those banks that was involved in various scandals in recent years resulting in no jail sentences. War, weapons, terrorism, bankrupting countries, drug money laundering not even misdemeanors; chalk messages a felony (though it should be noted that it’s the City of San Diego pressing the charges).

Who Shrinks the Shrinks?

As previously noted, Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, who researches schizophrenia and is the founder of the Treatment Advocacy Center in Arlington, Virginia, gave comment to the New York Times regarding Oscar Ortega-Hernandez and Torrey also worked at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC. in the 70s. He said that Ortega-Hernandez was classic case schizophrenia. However, he is also an expert and advocate of the possibility that schizophrenia can be caused by infectious disease.

The Department of Justice did an investigation regarding mistreatment and mishandling of patients at St. Elizabeth’s. You can read some about that here and here (PDF).

Some of the reported incidents (largely patient-on-patient violence) sound reminiscent of the previous (or continued) behavioral modification program run by the CIA and Army which we generally (those who even remember) refer to as MKULTRA.

Additionally, it sounds a lot like what the liberal media had trouble explaining: the seeming grassroots movement referred to as the Tea Party cropping up all over. (I even recall the initial belief on MSNBC that some of those people were paid to be there and do that, it was believed, by the insurance industry. Investigation of that idea seemed to die almost inmediately: these people meant what they said  and were not, as was assumed, political mercenaries)

I think most people probably first noticed the group of people, many elderly, who shouted at their representatives over (of all things–that which they themselves rely on) healthcare reform. Those people were rabid. If you’ve forgotten what it was like, go have a search on YouTube and see if their behavior seemed normal to you. As Barney Frank said, “like talking to a brick wall.”

Then we have massive violation of the doctor to patient oath. We have, as a society become so corrupt, so goddam selfish, that really we are nothing more to each other than walking ATMs. Two year olds given psychiatric diagnoses and perscriptions.

Trust is something that is really going to have to re-earned. And the only way that’s going to happen is if there are some serious repurcussions for these crimes. It’s for the good of the country. You know, national security. Has to happen. It’s criminality in every conceivable industry and it’s rampant.

When, oh when, are we going to see the adults start setting things aright?

How You Know…

that most fiscal conservative whining is bulls***:

“This country has a record breaking deficit and a $15 trillion national debt,” he said. “What many people do not know is that one of the reasons our deficit is as high as it is, is because there is a significant amount of fraud from defense contractors who sell their products to the Department of Defense.”

The Pentagon paid more than $1.1 trillion during the past decade to 37 contractors that had defrauded the Department of Defense, according to a report released in October. Another $255 million went to 54 defense contractors convicted of hard-core criminal fraud in the same period.

Rawstory

They complain about children (who don’t work) eating, getting healthcare and public education (such as it is) but never say a goddam word about all the fraud in the defense industry. Reason? Kickbacks. Congress is 90%+ in their pocket.

Scumbag Contractor…

Scumbag Contractor Trashes Medal of Honor Recipient

and tries to sell weapon systems to Pakistan.

Of course he doesn’t have any chance of winning. These people get their friends in CIA and DOD to use the same tech (Frey effect / microwave auditory effect) to affect the thought processes of juries, judges, lawyers, etc. Essentially, they do the thinking for them. People think they are having an inner monolog when in reality, it’s some jackass on the other end of the device transmitting those words into their heads.

Imagine if they can do the same on election day. Isn’t fascism in the 21st century a hoot?

Blessed Are the…

BLESSED ARE THE …

One interesting thing to note about these tricks is just how easily they could be used to promote peace. I’m not sure I condone that. But it is far superior ethically and morally to using it for death and profit, that is clear.

Really, I’m living proof that it can be used that way, aren’t I? Sure, you can brainwash some schmuck into thinking opening fire on a restaurant full of people will somehow help him, sending anonymous explosive letters to the leaders in technology will slow the progress of the very research that drove him insane in the first place, or that sending anthrax-laced letters will somehow make the nightmares that someone else planted in his head less frightening.

You can try to convince the less prone to thinking for themselves that somehow Muslims are to blame for all the world’s ills. You can use propaganda—especially when it’s also in the form of good films—to do that. You can try to convince as many people as you can that we’re still the self-sacrificing country who stormed a beach for others. That’s not entirely untrue, there are many among the troops who I am certain prefer building schools and hospitals to shooting up neighborhoods. It’s human nature, really.

But you could also talk some of the angry people of the world down, out of the idea that violence is somehow the answer to finding a smoking hole where their neighbor’s home used to be. You could defuse situations instead of provoking and exacerbating them. Failing that, you could easily make a suicide bomber blow himself up early, alone, without harming anyone else.

But you don’t. Why?

Power would seem to be the primary motive. Whether it’s the power to crush your enemies, power to shape minds into believing in a God who enjoys watching his children murder each other, power to give natural resources to whomever you want, or, in the case of some of the people carrying out some of these things, the power to make your own pain stop for a moment by inflicting worse on someone else. When you put monsters in charge, can you be surprised when the result is monstrous?

The motive is not ultimately idealogical. It’s just what I said above. Which means that, eventually, when they run out of gays, atheists, intellectuals, and Muslims to demonize and destroy (or more likely sooner, when they just get bored with doing so) they will turn on those who helped them gain that power. Those who carried water for them. Those who turned the other way when they should have spoken up for what they know is right, but continually lie to themselves that it’s all somehow justifiable. It’s not about loyalty. Can people without mercy be trusted to show gratitude after a significant portion of their goals are achieved? History is rife with examples that it always goes this way: they will turn on you as well. It’s about power that they won’t really need your help with when they finally get their way.

Yet another irony here is, it’s not that I cannot tell the difference between fiction and reality that’s the problem. It’s that I can tell the difference between fiction and reality too well. I have no illusions about what you’re capable of. I don’t let, for example, my enjoyment of a show like NCIS distract from the fact that there is still something horribly rotten in the Department of Defense. It’s idiotic to think we have to ever paint any group of prior with one brush of good or evil, beneficial or malevolent. I don’t deny that there are “bad guys” out there. There are. Just like there are bad guys here.

It’s not that we should do nothing at all. It’s that we have so far over-reacted (and as pointed out before, 9-11 could have easily been prevented in the first place in several ways) that we have caused financial difficulties that are going to take a long time to mend. You, by over-reacting, nearly did what Al Qaeda could not do alone, ever. You did exactly what Bin Laden wanted you to do, drag you down in the muck with him.

You sacrificed good will, a commodity more precious than money (largely because when we don’t have it, it costs us money instead buying off foreign powers to do what we want done—and even then you get foot-dragging and resistance like we got from Pakistan over the location and handling of OBL and others). You either thought that being feared and hated would somehow make us safer, or—far more likely—you knew it wouldn’t and you seek to capitalize on that very lack of safety that you have created.

And yet, no matter what you do, no matter what you take from me, no matter how often you arrange painful reminders, no matter who else you murder or ruin, you won’t get me to do what you want. And the fact that you don’t understand why is proof enough for me that you are not whole people. You are missing something. You are malfunctioning machines that are not beneficial because you are capable of atrocities. You are liabilities because that is all you can do and you have done the exact opposite of what was your charge: to protect. You did the opposite of that and then swept in pretending to be storming Normandy.

It does not matter what the outcome is on that other thing. Doesn’t change anything. Doesn’t matter at all. I would do the same again no matter what the answer is.

And now, I’ve got time on my side as well. You only have a few options left to you and not a lot of time to make a decision. I have the upper hand here. Your silly little tricks (which again only prove you have no interest in peace and prosperity for the majority of the American people) don’t change that. You’ve already lost. You’ve already lost because you surrendered a long time ago, before any of this started. You surrendered to hate, to your baser instincts, to the enjoyment of watching others suffer, of watching people blown to bits. You became that which you claim to abhor.

You are terrorists. Really, it’s that simple.
