Is it All in My Imagination?

I guess the hardest thing for any of us to do is to cut through our own bullshit. Every time I go to write something I have to ask myself; “Do I know what I’m talking about? Am I right?” There are so many axes grinding these days that sometimes it is almost too loud to hear yourself think. There are enough wheels within wheels to make a Swiss Watchmaker smile. The word ‘Byzantine’ comes to mind. The word ‘Machiavellian’ follows soon after.

I’ve had card sharks show me how they do what they do; things I would never attempt but it’s good to see it in action. Sometimes the hand is indeed quicker than the eye but often it is a matter of mis-direction. I’ve had scams run on me and I’ve had them explained to me. This was earlier in my life. I’m not open to scams anymore because I don’t want anything that isn’t on its way or that I don’t already have.

You’ve got to assume that those playing in the international political and economic arenas have got more subtle methodologies than three-card monte hucksters, card sharks or Murphy artists. Whatever their methods are though they all trace back to the simpler scams; they are all variations on a theme.

So I look at things and I try to look into things and I try to look into myself at the same time and see if what I see is really there and if I am seeing and analyzing correctly. I noted the recent appearance of Zacarias Moussaoui in the headlines at the same time as I see Charles Sheen come out about 9/11. I note the release of the ‘one-sided’ 9/11 tapes and the absence of mention that the fires had gone out. I noticed all of the things that were missing. The focusing on Moussaoui is to give us the impression that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by Arabs. Somehow we are supposed to believe that a handful of individuals who weren’t that good at flying Cessna’s suddenly were able to pilot large commercial aircraft. Now this doesn’t make even a little bit of sense but we are told it is so.

I have been told that Iraq had WMD’s. Then I see that they did not have WMD’s. I’m told that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. The actual evidence shows that they can’t be building a nuclear bomb- not yet. I keep hearing from Bin Laden and yet the voice and the images don’t match up. The Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence said that it wasn’t Bin Laden’s voice on the tapes. They are the experts. They said the tapes were almost certainly faked. My common sense tells me Bin Laden is dead.

It is supposed to be anti-Semitic to say that the Jews control the American media or exert a powerful influence upon American foreign policy and political life. Yet I see this-

“According to Israel radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael, [Shimon] Peres warned [Ariel] Sharon Wednesday that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and "turn the US against us."

At this point, a furious Sharon reportedly turned toward Peres, saying "every time we do something you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."

The radio said Peres and other cabinet ministers warned Sharon against saying what he said in public because "it would cause us a public relations disaster."

Two respected scholars release a report that corroborates all of this and immediately those whom we are told do not control certain things and do not exert certain influences suddenly appear to control and exert these influences and this we can see right before our eyes.

I have observed George Bush for years and I have concluded that he is a stupid, incurious demagogue who is incapable of governing anything. I must logically assume that someone is governing him. I observe that he lies nearly every time he opens his mouth but no one of any importance seems to call him on it. If a man who is president of the United States is lying all the time, shouldn’t there be a national outrage? Why would the president have to lie all the time unless he was doing the wrong thing all the time? There are supposed to be two parties in the American Congress but I cannot locate the opposition party. I see one version of the news in the alternate press and in foreign media and I see an entirely different version in America.

All of my research into 9/11 tells me that Arabs were not behind the 9/11 bombing. My research inevitably leads me to the American neo-con movement, PNAC, Mossad and British Intelligence as the culprits of this event. I can’t seem to come up with other conclusions. I don’t want to indict, even in my mind, these powerful forces. It can’t be good for my career. What am I supposed to do? Should I seek the truth wherever it may lead or should I shut my mouth and bow my head?

Why isn’t anyone in congress or even foreign governments and the foreign press coming out and saying what is obviously true? There really seems to be a very effective suppressive force at work. It seems to me that the governments and religions of the world are all in the wrong hands as far as any greater benefits for the human race.

A single IDF soldier is killed and it is a headline at msnbc.com/ Palestinian children are regularly targeted by IDF soldiers while doing nothing at all. In some cases full clips of ammunition are discharged into their bodies and it doesn’t even make the news. Cui bono?

What am I missing? I have often stated that I am willing to change my mind immediately if someone will point out to me how it is that my conclusions are wrong. Where am I going wrong? Am I right? I don’t need to ask why certain things are happening because that is obvious. What I want to know is why does it continue? Why is nothing being done about Dafur? What the Hell is going on?

It appears to me that Muslims were targeted to be the villains of 9/11 because it served the agenda of certain interests to cast them in this light. We have seen what followed as a result. On the surface, without much argument in my mind, it seems obvious that America is behaving as a fascist state. Can the American people really be as stupid as they appear?

More ominously, all of the signs seem to indicate some new horrible action on the horizon. Bin Laden is popping up all over the place in the press. Who decides to print this? Who is doing all of this and why? I keep coming back to the same agenda and the same players? Am I missing something?

The more I look into the history of the Palestinian plight the more I see that history has been altered. The more I look at what is actually happening and what I am told is happening the more lies appear. Honestly, I don’t want to be a gadfly. I don’t want powerful forces at my throat simply because I love the Truth. Meanwhile the peoples of the world sleep in their pastures, grazing on what they can find and being manipulated, confused and set against each other. Surely there is a better way. Surely there are better leaders somewhere among us. Surely the world is not what it could be, much less what it appears to be. Is it just my imagination?
