Smooth Sailing Till the Next Election? Maybe Not.

-The probability of more state-sponsored terrorism (avian flu/forced vaccinations?), The North American Union and a full-on police state.

Smooth Sailing Till the Next Election? Maybe Not.
By Colin D. Donoghue
[updated 9/7/08]

"[T]he entire continuum of public and private life in the United States has been transformed by 9/11, the lengthy preparations for it, the ensuing cover-up, and the massive consolidation of authoritarian policies and institutions achieved in its wake. In short, I maintain that unless this phenomenon is exposed at its roots, the fundamental changes it has wrought will become permanent. That would constitute the death of the American republic."
-Michael Ruppert, "Crossing the Rubicon", page 14

We currently have an illegitimate, fascist war criminal administration in control of our government, that stole the elections that gave them that power, engineered an act of state sponsored-terrorism in order to remove all of the Rights that countless patriots have died for, and invade two nations in order to steal more oil and land for profit and imperial power. They have been torturing, illegally detaining and killing countless innocents over the past years, while bankrupting our economy to further concentrate the power in the hands of international bankers and corporations, who are their masters.
If all of that sounds ridiculous to you, you may want to stop reading now; If however, you have not relied on the controlled corporate media for your information, and have seen and heard the quality evidence that supports these claims, read on.
I believe the time is critical now, because it is unlikely that these fascist murderers are going to leave office quietly without perpetrating more violence and without using the tyrannical powers which they have given themselves in the name of "The War on Terror". Why would they pass laws streamlining the process to create martial law, forced vaccinations, detentions without trial, etc. unless they were planning on using them? Do you, like so many others, think that Obama is going to restore all our rights and save the planet from ecological destruction, and all we have to do is wait till November? That would be nice, but when we take into consideration what these sadistic fascists have already done, it is prudent to not assume they are done with their evil ways.

First off we have to IGNORE THE CIRCUS ON NPR/FOX, ETC. The presidential campaigns being the top story of the corporate media, starting over a year and a half before the 08 election, is a purposeful distraction from issues of real importance like the truth about 9/11 and the past two elections. This media circus would have us forget that all of our Constitutional rights have been removed, and that we now live in a police state, partially dormant. Never mind that over a million civilians have already been killed, never mind the women and children that were killed today with bullets and bombs paid for by your tax dollars, no, instead lets get the latest commentary on how much of a "maverick" McCain is or how Obama is "revolutionary"... (Notice there is no mention of Cynthia Mckinney, a truly revolutionary candidate with the non-corporate Green Party... or any commentary on campaign finance and election reform, that might actually return us to a Republic where representatives would actually represent the People, instead of corporations). Never mind that the evidence is overwhelming that the past two presidential elections were rigged and 9/11 was an inside job, no, pay attention to the manufactured circus America, so that impeachment will seem like a ridiculous idea.

For a best case scenario, let's just assume the fascist war criminals occupying the white house wont do anything else for the next 10 months, besides kill more Iraqi civilians and American soldiers in a war based on lies, continue the torture, illegal detentions, etc. Isn't that enough reason to ACT RIGHT NOW FOR IMPEACHMENT? Why might you hesitate in agreeing? What possibly cold justify this tyranny and insanity? Only this: The official 9/11 story still holds in your minds as truth, and the upcoming elections as well, a false past and future, keeping you out of the present.


As outlined in the popular new book "The End of America" by Naomi Wolf, (along with many other books, documentaries, etc. on the topic) the Bush Administration has removed all of the freedoms we once had that made America "The Land of The Free", modeling their policies after the Nazi regime and other fascist regimes throughout history.
The following is from a New York Times editorial, published February 19, 2007, titled "Making Martial Law Easier":

A disturbing recent phenomenon in Washington is that laws that strike to the heart of American democracy have been passed in the dead of night. So it was with a provision quietly tucked into the enormous defense budget bill at the Bush administration's behest that makes it easier for a president to override local control of law enforcement and declare martial law. The provision, signed into law in October, weakens two obscure but important bulwarks of liberty. One is the doctrine that bars military forces, including a federalized National Guard, from engaging in law enforcement. Called posse comitatus, it was enshrined in law after the Civil War to preserve the line between civil government and the military. The other is the Insurrection Act of 1807, which provides the major exemptions to posse comitatus. It essentially limits a president's use of the military in law enforcement to putting down lawlessness, insurrection and rebellion, where a state is violating federal law or depriving people of constitutional rights. The newly enacted provisions upset this careful balance. They shift the focus from making sure that federal laws are enforced to restoring public order. Beyond cases of actual insurrection, the president may now use military troops as a domestic police force in response to a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, terrorist attack or to any "other condition." Changes of this magnitude should be made only after a thorough public airing. But these new presidential powers were slipped into the law without hearings or public debate. The president made no mention of the changes when he signed the measure, and neither the White House nor Congress consulted in advance with the nation's governors.

The enforcers of the fascist state will say that our evidence of state-sponsored terrorism is illegitimate because the corporate media has not covered it. And since those that control the corporate media and prevent them from covering certain crucial topics, (like 9/11 Truth, Election Rigging, Banking/CIA/Illicit Drug Trade) are the very same enforcers of the fascist state, they believe that there victory is assured and nothing can stop them. However, they are incorrect. If enough people distribute the crucial information (especially about 9/11) independently of the corporate media, to their friends, family representatives, if independent media is expanded and supported (like with excellent new newspapers like the Rock Creek Free Press) and is also sent continuously to members of the corporate media itself, the perception will change and the intentional omission of this crucial information by the corporate media will be very clear. And so, the Big Lie will no longer stand, along with the authoritarianism of the corporate media, and accountability, justice and peace can finally be attained.

Here are 9/11 Truth resources that I recommend referring to in your letters, calls, etc. to government and media:
a) Books:

1."The Terror Timeline" by Paul Thompson
2."Crossing the Rubicon" by Michael Ruppert
3."The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" & "Debunking 9/11 Debunking", both by David Ray Griffin
4."The War On Truth: 9/11, Disinformation And The Anatomy Of Terrorism" by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed,

b) Documentaries:
"9/11 Press For Truth"€ (911pressfortruth.com/ ) & "9/11 Mysteries" (www.911Mysteries.com/)

Also, you can refer these same people to the Progressive Manifesto which outlines the problems and solutions in a short synopsis format:  http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/500328

As described in the book "Crossing The Rubicon" by Michael Ruppert, the dwindling oil supply will result in a global energy crisis and possible famine. This fits into the globalists plan for population reduction and further centralized control through a surveillance/police state... we should be prepared for another "event" as much as possible by having a local food/water supply, and by educating our neighbors bout state sponsored terrorism, as well as forced vaccinations:

The article "Vaccines Linked to Autism: Government Concedes Casual-link in Federal Court" in Vol. 2, No.4 of the Rock Creek Free Press newspaper [I highly recommend a subscription] tells of the thousands of autism cases pending in the Federal "Vaccine Court" and one where guilt was finally admitted. Since it is known for a fact that vaccines have a history of being unsafe, we should be particularly weary of "compulsory vaccinations" that have been legalized under new "anti-terrorism" laws. This is yet another example of how the official story on 9/11 is used to "justify" insanity, death and destruction, and therefore why 9/11 Truth should be at the top of every activists priority list. In the excellent book "Crossing The Rubicon" by Michael Ruppert, there is this disturbing passage on page 493:

"The Act creating DHS [The Department of Homeland Security] has a particular obsession wit biological warfare (biowar) and , in particular, smallpox, which is the only disease specifically mentioned throughout Title 3. And in a magnificent gift to vaccine makers it has made it a law that, in the event of a declared emergency when millions might be ordered to receive untested (for efficacy) and dangerous vaccinations, the vaccine makers and those who administer the vaccinations at government direction will be immune from lawsuits, even if you drop dead or suffer permanent disability as a result.
In the event that the Secretary of DHS declares a health emergency or a "potential health emergency," certain provisions of US public health laws may be activated to not only compel vaccinations, but to give the DHS the power to condemn and seize private property without advance hearings or court procedures."

Other crucial issues that are marginalized by the corporate media include:

-The North American Union: See StopTheNorthAmericanUnion.com & JBS.org/NAU
The only way this could be implemented is through another major "event" like the state (U.S.) sponsored terrorism of 9/11/01, but not necessarily involving civilian deaths. It could be the much publicized, (without sufficient scientific reason) "avian flu outbreak" or simply the intentional collapse of the U.S. Dollar by the shadow government (CFR, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Federal Reserve/International bankers) who were behind the previous stock market crashes (see part 3 of zeitgeistmovie.com for starters). The "Amero" could be touted as the new currency that will save the average American's financial status, while strengthening the economies of Mexico and Canada. This will all be bullshit of course, it will simply be a further consolidation of power and wealth and create a new governing body that further removes power from the People and puts it in the hands of the few corporate "elite" (aka scumbags). These few ultra-rich are envisioning a "one-world government" that would combine the European Union with a North American Union, an African Union, and an Asian Union, This further concentration of power in the hands of the few on global scale, is the exact opposite of what is needed: decentralized local democracy with sustainable self-sufficient communities. Speaking of which, an easy thing you can do to support Sustainability and non-corporate controlled government is to Register with the Green Party, regardless who you vote for.

-The Weather modification filling up every stretch of blue sky across the country, while the Pentagon tells us it is just normal contrails. The German government has recently admitted (search for "Germany becomes the First Country to admit Chemtrail Ops" on youtube.com) to this aerosol spraying, Bush, Inc. are of course sticking to their old stand-by: "deny everything".

So again the crucial actions needed TODAY are calling for impeachment AND the re-opening of the 9/11 investigation. I've seen fund raising parties and concerts for impeachment, yet when I went to my representative to call on impeachment, he said I was the first to do so. It's so frustrating to see so few aware of the solutions, and even fewer actually following through on what must be done in order for it to actually happen. It's no wonder we have fascist war criminals occupying the white house with a populace with little free time, good health, education or concern... but I regress. I know there are many people out there who know what I know and agree that this is the needed action.

"It has nothing to do with George W. Bush or whether we like him or not," said David Swanson, co- founder of After Downing Street, a group working to expose lies leading to the Iraq war and hold officials accountable. Swanson said he is pursuing impeachment to "set standards for future presidents."
"If we were to go to 2008 without having impeached anyone," Swanson continued, "we would be establishing the standard that it is permissible to lie us into a war, spy on us, to detain people without charge, to throw away habeas corpus... to openly use torture." Habeas corpus is the right to challenge one's detention. Almost 30 towns, from Carrboro, North Carolina to Santa Cruz, California, have passed resolutions calling for impeachment, according to ImpeachPAC, another pro-impeachment organization. And resolutions have been introduced in many state legislatures, including New Mexico, Washington, New York and Texas as reported by www.impeachbush.tv.

If impeachment proceedings and the re-opening of the 9/11 investigation do not begin while these criminals are still in power this nation will forever be disgraced and the ideals for which millions of Americans have died over the past two centuries will have been lost.

Do you think impeachment is not the right thing to do? How is sending our troops to die in an illegal unjust war based on lies the right thing to do? How is allowing treasonous war criminals to stay in the White House the right thing to do? How is torturing people that are detained without trial the right thing to do? We are sending the world the message that in American government you can basically be a fascist war criminal and still count on the support of the masses that fall for the propaganda they are fed through the right-wing owned and controlled corporate media. This is a sad time for this nation; impeachment and trials for the Bush Regime is the only thing that may redeem us.

If Bush is not impeached for his actions then this will set a precedent that allows future Administrations to start wars at will, torture prisoners, wiretap citizens without warrants and conduct more state-sponsored terrorism, possibly through using avian flu for example. We must act now by speaking the truth of what has happened and hold those responsible accountable to prevent these terrible crimes from happening again in the future.

This is not a question of supporting one party over another, but of upholding the rule of law over both of them. This is about protecting the Constitution and the abuse of power by the executive branch; this is about not letting these treasonous war criminals get away with their terrible crimes. This is about mass murder for empire and corporate profit.

If we do not use impeachment for Bush, Inc. who can we use it for? If we do not hold the Bush Administration accountable for their horrible and extremely un-American crimes, what hope is there for the future of this nation?
