Give Me Some Answers and I will Change my Mind

We now know that the last several elections were decided by fraud. We know that Al Gore won the 2000 election and we know that due to election fraud in Ohio that John Kerry actually won the 2004 election as well.

Since George W. Bush came to power there has been a consistent and concerted effort to undermine The Constitution; to remove environmental protections, to make illegal wars against sovereign nations, to enrich the rich and weaken the middle class, to do away with valuable social programs, to engage in crime at high corporate and political levels, to threaten, bully and arm-twist abroad and to institute a police state domestically.

We have been led to believe that all of these unfortunate trends and events are due to the threat of some vast, organized enemy in the shadows. We are led to believe that a small collection of widely dispersed radicals are responsible for this.

We can’t lay all of the blame off on G. W. Bush. He’s neither smart enough nor strong enough to be responsible. A casual look at the man shows a flawed personality with a mediocre intellect. He’s an inarticulate buffoon. So who is responsible? Whenever you want to find out what powers the masthead cutting through the ocean waves you have to consider who’s steering the ship …and what cargo is aboard will tell you who launched it. Bush can’t ride a bicycle often enough and things like a Sedgeway baffle him.

As hard as it may be for people to penetrate the curtains that conceal the wizard and the machinery, one feature is always available for your analysis and that is ‘cui bono’; who profits? Major corporations brought Bush to power. It is also true that when corporations run government, fascism is the result.

Most of the strange changes in American direction and infrastructure are based on reactions in the aftermath to the 9/11 attacks. In this case we have many inexplicable occurrences that cannot be accounted for in the official explanation. We have Israelis dancing on rooftops after the attack. We find that their vans contain box cutters and other questionable paraphernalia. We learn that they are connected to the Mossad but we are told we cannot be told more. We find that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition but we don’t know by whom and we don’t know why. We hear Netanyahu say about 9/11 “It's very good....... Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)" and we hear Sharon say to Peres, "don't worry about American pressure, we control America." We hear about AIPAC spying and we see that the membership of PNAC; which called for a ‘new Pearl Harbor’ is loaded with pro-Israel neo-cons. We hear about a network of Israeli art students moving freely through government buildings in Washington. Only someone very stupid or very frightened would fail to make the connection that Israel is deeply involved in the bad things happening to America.

We move along to Jack Abramoff. We move along to Mohammed Atta and his associates being on a Jack Abramoff gambling boat. We move along to Abramoff’s connections to Israel. It should make you wonder. But you won’t say anything. You won’t say anything because you will be called an anti-Semitic. Somehow this phrase is charged with instant career and reputation destroying force. So it appears or is compelled to appear in this “1984” newspeak world that what you see you do not see; what you hear you do not hear, what you conclude you cannot conclude because of Room 101.

If someone can reasonably explain the few things I have mentioned here to me so that they form a different conclusion I will immediately adjust my findings. I will. If someone can explain to me what Odigo and all of the other Israeli companies were up to when they got connected to the things they got connected to; if they can explain it in a different light, I will listen. If someone can explain to me about how the same Israeli security firm was in charge of all affected 9/11 airports, the Madrid train station and the London tube at the time of the attacks; if they can give me some rational explanation that differs from the natural assumptions I would make, I will listen. If someone can explain to me a different reading on the remarks of Theodor Herzl and the cynical use of the label ‘anti-Semitic’ to advance the cause of Zionism I am willing to listen. If someone can explain to me how the treatment of Palestinians in Israel and the surrounding territories; can explain to me how this is not apartheid I will listen. If someone can explain to me why the Israelis supported the South African government's apartheid and assisted and instructed them in it’s application; if you can explain to me how this was really a human interest effort, I will listen. If you can explain to me how the Lavon affair and the attack on the U.S. Liberty are something other than they appear to be, I will listen. If you can convince me that the phrase, “By way of deception thou shalt make war.” and its connection to these and a multitude of other events; phony anti-Semitic attacks in France that were revealed to be perpetrated by Israeli interests, the phony (and ONLY) Al Qaeda cell in Palestine that was staffed by Israelis and... and... it just goes on and on.

I am endangered by my love of the truth. I am in trouble because I cannot force myself to swallow a lie. I am made vulnerable by a mind that adds and sorts and wonders instead of lying out of sight and letting the world go on… one shit-brick of lies laid upon another until there are more buildings bigger than the WTC that can only be brought down by cosmic lightning. I can tell you this, shit stinks when it burns.

I want my questions answered. If my questions cannot be answered other than with answers that are not answers; or with justifications for any and all behavior, or with a suggestion that I shut up, or because of national security or any other subterfuge then what am I to believe? What am I to think? What? Should I walk through the looming Judas Gate with all of the other sheep hoping for the best? The Iraq war was unnecessary. The certain bombing of Iran that is scheduled for sometime in the first half of this year is unnecessary. Most of all, the treatment of the Palestinians, which is the basis for all of the uproar in the Middle East, is unnecessary. It just doesn’t have to be this way. It doesn’t have to.

I’m tired of people dying for the wrong reasons. I’m tired of special interests and the agendas of a vicious minority, making canon fodder out of humanity. I am tired of useful lies and a controlled media and hegemony and all of the ugly permutations of the world of business, grinding the unfortunate beneath the hobnailed boots of progress. I’m tired of all these bright shining futures with their bombastic poorly written soundtracks. Neither my spirit nor my blood is strong enough in sacrifice to redeem the stupidities of the age. It appears even the spotless lamb could not accomplish it. I am no spotless lamb.

I don’t love one country more than another. I don’t appreciate one people more than another. I understand the struggle to survive though I cannot always understand the need to struggle against imaginary enemies; not when the solution to real problems involves a mere increase in understanding and natural generosity.

As much as we are the moment and as much as the moment has no definition or meaning except what we give it, we are the future too. If we have not the courage of real conviction; if we do not possess a clear and fair vision we will perish. Until the greatest good for the greatest number of people becomes the greatest concern of the greatest number of people we will continue to be the indentured serfs of a black nobility whose harvests are the certain death of all our hopes.

We cannot improve ourselves and our world if we do not ask questions. We have no hope of a personal choice in our destination if we are only along for the ride. I bring forth these questions in the hope of true answers, not for provocation. I really do want to know why. Give me some answers and I will go away.
