It took only approximately 5% of the population to begin the push for America's first independence in the 1700's. We are fast
approaching that critical mass point yet again. Legal scholar Richard Cornforth has reported that the figure that may be needed this time around, will be as little as 3% of the U.S. population.
THE SECOND COMING OF THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN REVOLUTION: LET US COUNT THE
WAYS

by Scott Mowry
1.26.06
The year 2005 was a historical one of epic proportions for the grand
future that lays ahead for the people of the united States of America
and the world. So much SIGNIFICANT progress has been made in terms of
gaining ground on the New World Order's evil agenda, that there is
much to look forward to now than ever before. 2006 is promised to be,
without question, even more momentous, if not revolutionary!
We have already come out of the gates in the first part of this year
with guns a blazin! The indictment of Washington, DC lobbyist Jack
Abramoff is an extraordinary development. Besides bribing numerous
members of Congress, Abramoff has been identified the main moneyman
for the crooked 2000 election and equally duplicitous 9/11.
According to the Lyndon Larouche camp, Dick Cheney may be very close
to facing an impeachment trial due to his strong ties to both the
recently deposed Tom Delay and Abramoff.
After yet another Bush administration scandal, this one known as
"Spy-Gate," the hue and cry for George W. Bush's impeachment is
growing louder and louder and should reach a fever pitch very soon.
For the first time, in the history of the united States, a President
has actually ADMITTED to an impeachable offense.
Along with that, there is a rising disgust and abhorrence for the Iraq
War that is growing ever stronger by the week. People around the
country and across the planet are waking up to the lies, deceit and
corruption that surround them. The voices of dissent are going to grow
only more and more vociferous.
Finally, it seems as if Albert Gore, Jr., after his speech on Monday,
January 16, 2006 before an audience at Constitution Hall in
Washington, DC, has decided to stand up and draw line in the sand as
if to say to Bush and his fascist cronies, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
With a new year underway, it is worth reviewing the major gains that
have been realized over the past year:
--The alternative internet media has made monumental progress in
getting the truth to people that the mainstream, monopoly press
ignores and attempts to cover up. This shift of vital information
sources has turned the tide significantly against the fascist power
elite who are scrambling like mad to continue to hide the truth from
the people. However, they are failing at nearly every turn.
--80% of the U.S. intelligence communities are now opposed to the
Bush/Clinton crime families and have actively joined the fight against
them. Combined with intelligence services from the country of France,
they have formed what is known as the "American/French Alliance" to
provide a powerful and pro-active resistance to the Bush, Mossad,
British and New World Order gang of thugs and conspirators.
--According to federal whistle blowers Tom Heneghan & Stew Webb, the
American/French Alliance foiled four separate terrorist attacks on
U.S. soil in 2005. One was underneath the Chicago courthouse that was
intended for the Patrick Fitzgerald grand jury, another was in the New
York subway system and yet another was on the Canadian border. Ghost
Troop Captain Eric May also reported that another terrorist attack was
aborted in Texas City, TX in the oil refineries. It is remarkable to
realize that no significant terrorist act has occurred in this country
since 9/11.
--It took only approximately 5% of the population to begin the push
for America's first independence in the 1700's. We are fast
approaching that critical mass point yet again. Legal scholar Richard
Cornforth has reported that the figure that may be needed this time
around, will be as little as 3% of the U.S. population.
--Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is investigating the crimes of
the Bush administration relentlessly. He has already secured the
indictment of prominent White House staffer I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.
According to Tom Heneghan, Stew Webb and Sherman Skolnick, another 23
sealed indictments have been prepared that name Bush and Cheney and
numerous other members of his cabinet. Fitzgerald is going all the way
back to the JFK assassination in his pursuit of evidence. Grand juries
have now convened around the country to investigate the Sibel Edmonds
evidence, the JFK, Jr. assassination, as well as, the recent response
by FEMA to Hurricane Katrina, among many other crimes.
--According to Tom Heneghan, without much fanfare, the American/French
Alliance snuck in the back door and gained majority control of the
Department of Justice, despite heavy resistance from Bush and his
stooge Attorney General Alberto Gonzoles. Patrick Fitzgerald has been
instrumental in leading the charge and the fruits of his labors should
soon be presented before the American people in a historic fashion.
--Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who is linked to the bribery of
as many as 100 members of Congress, as well as being fingered as the
moneyman for both the fraudulent 2000 Presidential election and 9/11,
has plea-bargained and is now co-operating with the Patrick Fitzgerald
investigations. His testimony is going to implicate a whole host of
corrupt characters from the Congress and the Bush administration, the
Departments of State and Defense, as well as corporations and other
key players, perhaps even Bush himself. Abramoff's criminal activities
go all the way back to Iran/Contra.
--House Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-Texas) has been convicted for
illegal campaign contributions by a Texas grand jury. He has lost his
position of influence in Congress and has relinquished his seat as
Majority Leader. It cannot be overemphasized enough, how closely tied
Delay is to both Dick Cheney and to Jack Abramoff. And the fact that
both Delay and Abramoff have been indicted gives a very ominous
outlook for Cheney's political future.
--Tom Heneghan has also reported that former CIA Director George Tenet
has turned states evidence and has provided testimony to the
Fitzgerald grand jury that Valerie Plame's CIA team, heroically
prevented weapons of mass destruction from being planted into Iraq as
a justification for the war in 2002. This revelation has now
established the real reason why she was outed by members of the Bush
inner circle. Heneghan also reported that Karl Rove and NSA head
Stephen Hadley have also co-operated with the Fiitzgerald grand jury.
--Sherman Skolnick has reported that Barbara Olson, wife of former
Solicitor General Ted Olson, who supposedly perished on the plane that
slammed into the Pentagon during the 9/11 terrorist event, was
captured by intelligence sources last year, carrying a Vatican
passport and wearing a disguise. Olson's arrest, that now proves she
is very much alive and well, blows the whole 9/11 scenario as
portrayed by the Bush administration and the equally corrupt 9/11
Commission to pieces.
--Tom Heneghan and Stew Webb openly discussed the notion of
"Constitutional re-implementation" during several of their radio
programs this past year. Webb was particularly insistent that a "new
government" for the U.S. is on the horizon, which will include a
revamped and just court system and a fair and reputable economic
system.
--Activist Cindy Sheehan raised more awareness of the failed and
woefully corrupt Iraq war than any other person was able to do in all
of 2005 or before, for that matter. The momentum she has generated
will not cease. This woman is not going to go away quietly and expect
to hear much more from her in 2006.
--Richard Cornforth has reported that we are very close to seeing the
fraudulent and illicit Federal Judiciary system being pulled down
entirely. Legislation is before Congress right now to just that.
--Also according to Richard Cornforth, significant steps have been
taken to put the debt-collection industry completely out of business,
once and for all, within the next year. Mr. Cornforth also predicts
that the corrupt credit card industry will be brought down within the
next five years or less.
--And here is what Richard Cornforth had to say on the future outlook
for America: "We have a wonderful future. We have an opportunity to
actually have that (American) Revolution completed. This will be the
greatest thing that will happen to the people in the history of the
world."
--Finally, former Vice-President Albert Gore, our last duly elected
President, gave a rousing and brilliant speech on Martin Luther King
Day, Monday, January 16th. In that speech, which was a call to arms
for the people of the united States he said, as I stand here today, I
am filled with optimism that America is on the eve of a golden age in
which the vitality of our democracy will be re-established by the
people and will flourish more vibrantly than ever. Stew Webb called
this speech, "the greatest political speech he has ever heard in his
life.
The Second Great American Revolution marches on to its inevitable
victory! The time has come for all of you to join in!

your info lacks credibility and foresight 10.Apr.2006 07:31

morpheus rising jenamo@msn.com

Scott,

I am interested in what you are saying, but it has to go deeper and have more back up facts to be credible. first, the american revolution was an upper class revolution, that is why it was successful. % of the population had little to do with it. Second, if we impeach Bush, then what....Cheney? no thank you. If we inpeach Bush and Cheney, then what...the next idiot? no thank you. The only thing that will change the direction is a massive consciousness raising of society. As I read today's headlines of CEO's salaries rising at a rate of 25% compared to worker's 3%. To quote: Capitol One's CEO (the guys who finance your car,house, credit cards,etc) made $248 million last year. This greed is what is deteriorating our quality of life...they own the pres, vice pres, et al in our govt. The real meaning of apocolyspe is "to unveil"...and that is certainly happening...but as the veil is lifted and we see the truth, the very,very ugly truth...what are we (collective society) going to do about it...probably what we did in 2004...elect another Bush clone. We will see.

Next...the Barbara Olson story is way too "out there"...please publish more facts. OK, so she dyed her hair, changed her name, joined the secret witness program....so what. Is she just traveling the planet trying to "find herself". I do think that truth is stranger than fiction, but come on...back it up.

I am very optimistic for the future, also....but it is not going to be easy for the generation that has to clean up the mess, and lead us to the promised land.
