AMERICA’S POLITICAL MESS, TIME TO START OVER


GORDON DUFF:  TERM LIMITS, A THIRD PARTY OR EVEN REAL CAMPAIGN FINANCE RULES AREN’T ENOUGH

By Gordon Duff  / STAFF WRITER / Senior Editor

start-over-governmentWhere do you start?  John McCain is facing a challenge in Arizona.  He is going to drag out his military record and his experience as a personal recommendation.  Few Americans really know that McCain is a mental case with a “war record” he has had to have “classified” to keep himself out of prison. 

The truth, is this all?  Does he have lifelong ties to organized crime, a history of voting against veterans and working against POW/MIA group?  It is even worse than that.  We have never had a person this crazy with this much baggage running for any office in our history.  McCain, the personal shadow of Josef Lieberman, the Senator from Tel Aviv, along with dozens of others, could and should all be doing time, not “serving democracy.”

We have never had a political candidate in our history so deserving of the attention of criminal profilers as John McCain.  Now that there is time for reflective and intelligent thought, those who supported him should take a look at his real history.  The myth of John McCain, carefully groomed by the organization was challenged by POW advocate Ted Sampley.  It makes a powerful read and earned Sampley the hatred of McCain and John Kerry until his death.  I can think of no better epitaph for an American.

McCain, the lovable sociopath, is not the only one, not by a long shot.  We have peppered the country with junior versions of McCain, all chasing the brass ring represented by selling America to the powerful and generally evil groups that own our government.  It isn’t just AIPAC, front for poor Israel, a country that  touts itself as the “second most powerful nuclear power on earth” or the endless lobbies.  The disappointment so many feel about President Obama tells the story.

As a veteran, I had to work for Obama, or so I thought.  McCain had done so much against our POWs and their families, was so crooked, did so much to betray America’s veterans that he had to go.  This left me with having to push support to Barack Obama, another of those “out of nowhere” politicians, obviously alot smarter than McCain and with some sense to know what economic disaster looks like.  I knew he couldn’t be running for office unless he had been “packaged” by some group with an agenda to keep things as they were.

Here is a question.  If Congress wasn’t as corrupt as we know it to be, a pile of money hogs with their noses stuck in a trough, would the health care bill have passed by now?  Any idiot knows we need one, OK, any half idiot.  Every American that opposed health care, or at least a public option, must be a total dupe.  When we started, 40% of Americans had no coverage, it is now 55%.  However, the bill we are voting on is a boondoggle for the insurance companies and, even then, the GOP isn’t happy with that. 

How do I hate the democrats for their corruption and gutlessness when the entire Republican party is even worse, pawns of gangsters, totally bereft of any humanity at all? 

All Americans asked of Obama was to clean up the remains of two stolen elections and investigate the criminal conspiracy at the heart of the Bush administration.  At least, we need a new 9/11 Commission and a Special Prosecutor to go after those who have been accused of perjury and submitting false information to the first one.  This would jail half the Bush Administration and, perhaps, open the door to a look at how things really work.

Tens of millions of Americans and most people outside the United States believe 9/11 was a conspiracy involving the Bush administration and groups from Israel.  Whether this is true or not, since 9/11 we have found massive evidence that it may be true and, since the Detroit “Crotch Bombing” of 2009, we have a publicly know evidentiary trail showing how it could have been done using the Mossad and Israeli owned companies. 

Even those Americans who still buy the MSM/Corporate press version of the conspiracy, there is enough proof that the Iraq invasion was part of a criminal conspiracy that should jail, not only a former President and Vice President but dozens of others also.  That one is a slam dunk.

Obama has failed totally in his responsibility as president there.

Remember the Acorn scandal?  Filled the newspapers with stories of buying votes and people dressing up as pimps.  Now we find our “pimp” was a CIA employee, the newspaper stories were totally false and Acorn was victimized by a plot between the GOP, CIA and Israel as part of a ploy to rig a 3rd consecutive election.  These are the facts as they stand, facts that will never be reported but facts just the same.

They tell you what is wrong.  Nobody will ask newspapers why they take orders from lobbyists or why paid lobbyists like Tom Ridge and so many others are paraded in front of the public, them and their scripts, bringing us endless falsified news.

I was never a big one for the “grand conspiracy.”  I had worked in politics, knew I was around crooks.  Every American accepts this silently.  It is why America is a failed state, heading down the toilet, dead in the water and, as any real economist knows, hopeless.  I spent a alot of time with former Washington attorney and Senate Finance Chief Counsel, Jeff Gates over the last couple of weeks.  We were on a lecture tour of Pakistan together and ended up dozens of discussions, some including alot of table pounding.  We are both good at that part.

Jeff wrote tax code, the detail stuff, when working in the Senate as a lawyer.  I come out of banking and finance also, so we had alot to go over.  It took a couple of days, but eventually it began to sink in.  What he knew and what I knew went one direction, our government had been under the control of organized crime for many years, not just since Reagan, as I had suspected.  It went back long before that.  Kennedy stood up against it, so did his brother Bobby. 

The facts were there, not “newspaper” facts or Fox News “fair and balanced” facts.  You could tie the ownership and control of newspapers, corporations and political parties to a few families.  The “conspiracy theories” about the Trilateral Commission, CFR or Bilderbergers and Illuminati was a joke.  It was the “mob” clear and simple.  Prohibition, millions in profits buying government, not the Italian “Mafia” but a Jewish one, steeped in politics, both  Republican and Democrat heading one way, the destruction of America.

Jeff’s conclusion was that the nation of Israel was established as a base for criminal operations as the legitimacy of a “nation state” was needed to gain control of America from within and without.  The facts were there.  His book, Guilt by Association and his website, www.criminalstate.com put it in terms that are unavoidable.   I talked at length about history, where my background comes in.  It all went together too well.  We are continually bombarded by conspiracies to keep us off track.  Everything is manipulated.

It was depressing.  I keep looking within the political system and wonder why it does nothing but the same things, with Democrats moderating some aspects of financial abuse and theft but the direction keeps coming back.  Our political system itself failed because we allowed money to buy power, which it did.  It has never let go, it only made more money and bought more power.

The game wasn’t to steal money itself but to pile up debt.  This is where the boring economic stuff comes in, why debt, and we are drowning in it, is vital to control of the US.  Those Americans who talk about the Federal Reserve system and how it has turned over control to foreign banks, total control of America, are starting to get the picture.  You just aren’t getting the entire picture unless you understand who the Rothchilds are and how they invented what we know of as banking.

It is possible that none of the major wars of the past 200 years would have started without the Rothchilds and their friends managing them.  We are fighting two of those wars now, wars we have no idea how we got into, wars begun on 9/11, a vast plot of amazing complexity supposedly begun in a series of caves somewhere.  Anyone who still believes this, I do wish you my best.  You are trusting souls.

There are themes we can always come back to.  We can take the Smedley Butler theme, named after the famous Marine General:

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”
 
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

Butler saw America as an imperialist power, not unlike Nazi Germany or Japan, working, not for the good of Americans but for a criminal conspiracy of feudal lords who used war and America’s military might for profit.  It doesn’t take a genius to trace the oil, gas and opium of our current wars to back up the same assumptions but things have become more complex than that.

Do you accept Jeff Gate’s model that Butler, a military officer, was missing much of the background and that something more sinister was behind it all.  If you run the clock back to the 1930s, history was seen differently then.

When we think Jews, we are immediately reminded of the holocaust and Hitler, usually by Jews who have made a life out of bringing this up as an excuse for Israel.  In the 25 years starting with 1972, the United States had to veto 32 United Nations resolutions against Israel calling for sanctions, much like those against Iran today.  Few Americans know this and even fewer have any idea why the rest of the world would be “picking on Israel” like that.  Any other ally damned by the entire would that may times would have gotten tons of press and some serious questions.  We get nothing but stories of evil Arabs and how Israel is threatened.  Now we wake up to find them running much of the Middle East, a huge military power and in control of much of American politics.

Nobody is surprised but everyday Americans, or they would be if they knew.  With Israel controlling our news and free to buy and sell Congress,  we will never know, or so Jeff Gates says.  Is he wrong?  Can anyone prove it?  I wish them luck.

The “yellow press” of today, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times or Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, the gang that pushes the “party line” have their roots decades ago.  We pretend that control of the press controls our elections.  With a two party system, control of both parties takes little effort.  Why would this kind of power take chances?  Control both parties, at least in the key areas involving support of Israel, support of debt and bleeding America dry.

If anyone tries to stand up against you, they can be murdered.  Why was Reagan shot?  Did he catch on?  Was Kennedy shot because he tried to stop Israel from getting nuclear weapons?  What kind of man was Senator Paul Wellstone?  He and his family died in a mysterious plane wreck, like the wreck that killed Governor Mel Carnahan when he ran against John Ashcroft, “trained Israeli seal” and Christian Zionist extremist. 

Ashcroft oversaw the dismemberment of the American Constititution, though Carnahan even after his death (murder?) still defeated him in the election.  In Ohio, GOP “electronic voting specialist,” Mike Connell had a similar accident.  One thing certain about America, stand up long enough, speak out enough or threaten the rackets and a house will fall on you. 

For every killing we ask about, there are a dozen, maybe a hundred we forget quickly or never hear about at all.  Anyone remember Jim Trafficant, the “crooked Congressman” recently released from prison?  Even as a “convict,” most Americans, if they knew why he really went to prison would give him a Medal of Freedom.  It wasn’t graft that sent him to jail, it was that he refused to be involved anymore and started to talk.

He is lucky a house didn’t fall on him.

Is Israel actually running America or is it a group of oil companies, defense contractors and financial crooks, backed by a media run by Israel?  These are the choices.  The old choice, “America is run by her people, as with any decent democracy” is believed by no one and easily debunked by a short look at our wars, 9/11, political assassinations, our economic condition and a look at the lies our newspapers carry.

and so it goes….

    Duff,

    On the money again. Obama????? He is just another shill and a Chicago machine politician if anyone needs proof just think a little…Rham Emanuel, Tony Rezko, David Alelrod all are just Chicago boys and anyone from Chicago (or the surrounding area) knows that crime in fact does pay (if you are connected). Oh yeah, all of the previously mentioned boys ARE connected.

    Good job again Gordon.

    “The tyrant, who in order to hold his power, suppresses every superiority, does away with good men, forbids education and light, controls every movement of the citizens and, keeping them under a perpetual servitude, wants them to grow accustomed to baseness and cowardice, has his spies everywhere to listen to what is said in the meetings, and spreads dissension and calumny among the citizens and impoverishes them, is obliged to make war in order to keep his subjects occupied and impose on them permanent need of a chief.” – Aristotle

    Here’s a glaring example of the kind of dangerous legislation these two great Americans, Lieberman and McCain, are now trying to push off on the American people. Not only does it apply to US citizens, it applies to US citizens who attack other civilians which sounds like ordinary criminals to me.

    “The bill asks the President to determine criteria for designating an individual as a “high-value detainee” if he/she: (1) poses a threat of an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the U.S. or U.S. facilities abroad….”

    There are many suggestions floating around, in this article and other blogs, about what we the people need to do. What I see and read about is that we the people are fighting with each other. We are much too concerned about liberals and conservatives and who is to blame for what Duff has written.
    While we are slamming the other party and all their shortcomings the “planners” of how to get rich, control elections, wars etc. are laughing all the way to the bank. Can’t we just all get along, get together and look at ourselves as being led to distruction by politicians here and abroad. We are so busy shitting on each other that we are not paying attention to all of us being shit on. Somewhere I read or was told…”The reason we get shit on is because we allow ourselves to be shit on.” Semper Fidelis. Blackcoat.

    Wow!
    Gordon, you’ve done it again. GREAT WORK!
    In January ’03, Howard Kohr; Executive Director of AIPAC said: “Quietly lobbying congress to approve the use of force in the Iraq war was one of AIPAC’s successes over the past year.”
    Because I’m just another “Scratch n’ Dent” Vet, I spent lots of time at our V.A. and frequently see the “fruits” of AIPAC’S “Successes”. No that I can no longer Blacksmith for a living, I spend hours writing where ever I can to calmly and credibly point out the Kosher Elephant running congress, the media etc etc. Fortunately, there are many Jewish and Israeli groups that are also fed up with Israel’s Criminal Right Wing Element. For example, here’s a list:
    http://www.againstbombing.org/peacegroups.htm

    Preempting the “Anti Semite” (epithet of Mass Destruction) adds to one’s Credibility factor and stressing that it’s not a “Jews vs non Jews” issue seems to help.
    Does all this noise making make a difference; Microscopic if at all.
    But from time to time; “Mentioning” the USS Liberty; or the fabricated “Wipe Israel off the face…” Lie etc etc to folks that didn’t know at least makes me feel better.
    “Mentioning” Israel’s Multi billion dollar Propaganda Industry sets yarmulkes spinning like this one of countless:
    http://rinf.com/alt-news/contributions/israeli-hires-internet-soldiers/6148/
    No matter how futile, “Giving Up” is never an option.
    Many Thanks, Gray

    P.S. Mad Mac McCain’s dad spearheaded the Liberty cover up; his “hero” son carries on the tradition by endorsing A.J. Cristol Book of Liberty Lies so dear s a “source” to the cold, tiny Zionist heart.

    I’m with Jon on this one. Its pointless to attempt to change the system. Its too far gone and will hopefully self destruct shortly so we can start over, God willing. Just goes to show we aren’t exceptional people nor the shining city on the hill. We’re just people like everybody else. A warning should be include in the new constitution so as to remind our leaders not to engage in hubris.

  23. Brian  March 5, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Wow what an article! I was actually laughing at times due to some of the brazen yet true comments.

    Yes Israel runs our congress and Whitehouse. The Jewish Zionists control our press on behalf of Israel. I hope I don’t have to post again for Old Leatherneck the extensive list of Jewish Zionists who run all the major media including television, magazines and newspapers and also the film industry. That list is astonishing. Our distorted news is brought to us by Zionists.

    By the way, next time you need a picture for a bulldozer perhaps you can use a photograph of the Caterpillar bulldozer that the company specially designed for Israel to illegally tear down Palestinian homes.

    Some people believe the Rothschilds caused the Civil War. They financed both sides and made a fortune. I believe they were charging Lincoln interest rates well over twenty percent. Lincoln was furious and issues a US government currency the “greenbacks” to help finance the war. The Rothschilds were furious with Licoln printing government money. Some conspiracy theorists suggest the Rothschilds had Lincoln assassinated. The articles are compelling.

    By the way, the US empire is going to be destroyed by debt. When that happens we will have angry, desperate Americans with two hundred and fifty million guns lurking on the streets. For protection, I suppose I will have to make a sharp stick.

    • Oldleatherneck  March 6, 2010 at 3:16 am

      I agree America is broken! We have taken a long time to get to this point, our government is full of corruption. Neither party has shown any desire or inclination to do anything different, just business as usual. The powerfull and connected are not about to give up control. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutly. I still believe in the founding principles, the original vision of what America should be. Are we past the point of no return? Have we strayed too far from the vision our founding fathers had for this nation? I don’t know. If we have to start over what do we create? I feel that you and everyone on this web site want something totaly different than what America is supposed to be. If it makes you happy print your list of Jewish Zionist, I wouldn’t want to deprive you of your guilty little pleasure. What do you intend to do with your sharp stick, poke your eyes out with it? So you don’t have to see we poor unsofistticated fools who cling to our God and Guns when we are threatened and insecure. I guess you won’t be including the 2nd amendment in your new constitution, or the 1st, or the 4th. How about writing a new constitution and bill of rights so we can all see your vision of a new and improved America.

    Wow!

    This would also explain the attack on our educational system – from a grossly underfunded and dysfunctional primary system, to a university system that’s rapidly growing out of the reach of what used to be called the middle class. An educated populous leads to too many dot-chasers (Gordon Duff, Jeff Gates, etc.).

    It also explains why the GOP is determined establish a school vourcher system to replace public schools in this country – it would allow them t establish the educational equivalent of Blackwater running our schools – and indoctrinating the nation’s young. After all, since when has the GOP become so concerned about minorities getting a “quality” education? I can just see it now – Crips for Democracy.

    They’d like nothing more than to create a society where our young people are brainwashed, and just educated enough to either operate an M16 or function at a low-pay entry level of large corporations, whose headquarters are located in Dubai to evade U.S. taxes.

    They’ve already setup the framework for such a system, that’s why the children of the rich no longer feel the obligation to defend the country. That’s a job for “the little people” – the little insignificant people. Hell, now the corporatocracy can cash in on wars in perpetuity, and the power elite (including the politicians) don’t have don’t have to risk one love one.

    • Gordon Duff  March 5, 2010 at 3:26 pm

      Eric,

      The educational system you refer to was enacted in the late 40s….creating “normal schools” to train teachers, monkeys and ROTC types with just enough education to be led around by the nose.

    Instant run off voting might help some, but, at this point, I’m hanging it up. There is such a thing as a losing battle and I’m of the opinion that this one is over for a few generations. I use to offer up political advise to people that I thought had the intellect to understand how they were being taken the cleaners but the fact was they just didn’t care. Now, as their “investments” crumble, health insurance soars, mortgages go under water, wages plummet and taxes go up — on anyone making less than 85 grand a year — they all of a sudden care and it’s far too late. I don’t offer political advise anymore. I offer commodities advice. Dry goods, metals, gold silver lead. It’s ignored of course. I’ve come to the conclusion that a great many people believe the lies their told everyday, right in the face of the simple truth, simply because they want to.

      The more I learn, the more I agree with jon. I don’t know who to believe anymore, so I feel like withdrawing even more than I have already. It is a dangerous waste of energy to try and educate most of the sheeple, if not all of them. They can’t handle the truth!

      Oh, great, “I’m losing, so I quit.” Sounds like a certain governor.

      The idea that investing in metals will keep you alive is the advice (not “advise,” that’s a verb) of someone not living quite in the real world. You can’t eat gold or silver; in fact, people are selling their old jewelry like it was, well, tarnished lead. Dry goods? Invest in cloth? No wonder no one takes your advice.

      Boots on the ground, people. If we’d been paying attention, doing our homework, and doing our work, Lieberscum would never have gotten to a position of power, Murdoch’s media empire would still be off on some low-band frequency, and Chicken George and his puppet-master Dick would have been facing criminal charges eight years ago.

      IT IS NOT ONLY OUR RIGHT, BUT OUR DUTY, TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THE U.S.A. FROM ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.

      Get out there and find a progressive candidate to work for. Get out there and make absolutely certain that our votes are counted in November. Get out there on the front lines at home.

      The only “waste of time and energy” is sitting on your rear end watching TV.
