Anyone starting to read this may ask, why them? Even those in it may wonder why I would call them our last hope. I think it has to do with their unique position, history, and original mission. They were designed to be outside the system, invisible guardians with keen eyes and ears and the ability to act in the shadows without having to talk it to death with everyone first. Lately, they have gotten more entangled with politics and controversy; but the more entangled they are, the weaker they have become. Their strength originally had been their stealth and secrecy. It was not only their power moves, but also their ability to see a whole picture.
Just about everybody in the United States subscribes to a certain point of view. For many, it is a vague thing. The vast majority of people do not take out the time to think out entire political ideologies. They knee-jerk to the right or left. A few actually develop a very elaborate world view. I have met and talked to many of them. I have met Libertarians who can be quite impressive. I have met Marxists who also know their material well. I have met others as well who think it through very thoroughly, but there is one thing which characterizes them all. They know their view very well but no other. They will not acknowledge any truth in the opposing view either. All the “sides” stay permanently polarized. As the years slide by, this gets more and more extreme in our country.
I find I have a unique trait compared to most people. I have actually been involved with political groups that were very opposite each other. I have been in both right wing and left wing parties and groups. When I say ”right” or “left,” I don’t mean the watered down main stream versions. I mean the radical right and the radical left. For me, it was a natural evolution. I started out right wing, learning all about that view, even several versions of right wing; then, I evolved leftward as I saw truth in their view. Then a funny thing happened, I realized no one party or group had the whole truth. Every party had a piece if it. Each party had parts where they were right and parts where they were dead wrong. Each one could be both offensive and at the same time progressive. I naturally started assembling the pieces that worked into my package. I sought out a party that has all these pieces; but alas, no such party exists, so here I stand alone.
It just so happened that my cousin started taking up an interest in the CIA for her own personal reasons. It was her thing, more or less; but then I started to get curious about it and started reading some of her stuff. This was books, articles, videos, and etc. I started to notice that many of these CIA persons had a similar view to my evolving view. I had always assumed that they were knee-jerk anti-Communists, but many of them are not really that way. Perhaps this has to do with how they have to live. I guess if you go to many other places and get involved with all of the goings on in some of these countries, you will run into all sorts of political types, the good, bad, and the ugly. These people have to look at everything. At the same time, though, they side with the well-being of their own country, especially the older ones.
I sense strongly that what I am about to write here, they will feel is true. There will be a side that will not want to think about it too much or admit it because it is too scary. It scares me too. I feel like poor Frodo carrying the weight of that ring around. It stands in the way of having a normal life. How does on live day to day when you know something that no one else even acknowledges at all? I think some people do know but aren’t saying, or know unconsciously and are trying not to think about it. I wonder how many current and ex-CIA officers are carrying that burden.
We are being played for suckers by both political parties. It looks like it is done on purpose. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have certain truths, but each also has lies. I find myself toggling back and forth between the two of them. One minute I am siding with the “Libtards” and then the “Wingnuts.” Sometimes it is neither! This system has it set up so that nothing can resolve. Just as some are poised to take away the second amendment, then the other side wants to cut granny off from her Medicare. First one is driven to side with one party, then the other. Voting time comes, and one is not sure what the blazes to do. No answer is offered. While they got us bouncing back and forth like ping-pong balls, meanwhile certain forces are at work with some sort of agenda which they hope we don’t notice. The two parties are a distraction designed to keep us from looking behind the curtain.
The War on Terror is some sort of diversion. It is right and proper than we defend ourselves from this threat, and I applaud all of national security for doing so. I think the terrorists do represent a certain threat, but to me it seems like we are going about it in an odd way. Some things are just plain odd. After 9-11, we went after Iraq for some so-called “weapons of mass destruction” that ended up not being there. Saddam was not a nice guy, but he really had nothing to do with 9-11. The hijackers, from what I remember, were mainly of Saudi origin. I recall reading that Saudis were spirited out of the country right after 9-11. The master-mind, Bin Laden, was living in Afghanistan; yet it was a long time before we had a war there. I recently read that our CIA was doing stuff there, but their efforts were squandered. At least in WWII we went after the right people. We seem to be pretending we have allies that are not really allies, middle eastern countries that to our face say they are wanting to fight terrorism but behind our backs sneak and support the terrorists. Bin Laden was comfortably living in Pakistan when we finally found him. Why didn’t the Pakistani’s hand him over? They did not help us exactly. When we did go in and get him, why was there such minor resistance, just a bunch of women and kids mostly? I would think the guy who masterminded something like 9-11 would have rigged that place to blow sky high as soon as we went in there. It seems to me he pulled a Ben Kenobi and let “Vader” kill him, allowing for the next Jihadist “Luke” to replace him. He wanted to do the martyr thing. Then there is this recent thing with Benghazi. I do not know what they are lying about, but it is obvious they are lying about something. They are so determined to cover up something that they are even willing to look like liars. I think if it was some sort of classified CIA secret, the lie would at least be more plausible. The cover-up is done so badly that I really do not think it is the CIA. I find it odd that our ambassador was supposed to die, as if it were dictated by someone. We are not allowed to go after the people who did this. The perpetrators are somehow being shielded. I think we made some weird treaty or deal with someone, and the politicians do not want to tell us about it. We are playing games with the war on terror. Something else is at work here.
Then, to switch subjects, we have the goings on in the European Union. They should have nothing to do with what we do here right? Yet, there is an odd connection. I remember when the Euro was greeted with excitement and joy a few years ago. That joy has become some sort of nightmare. It is like “Hotel California.” “You can check out any time you want, but you can NEVER leave….” Some of the countries are being put under austerity as bad as if they lost a war. Even their sovereignty is gone as strangers come in to run their governments. Greece is getting the worst. They must be under military dictatorial threat because they can’t get out, but this is not the oddest thing. One could say they joined it, so they are stuck with it. The U.S. did not join it; but there seems to be a sudden over-obsession with the deficit and debt, the same as over there. We have had a debt/deficit for years, and it wasn’t treated obsessively. Now we got politicians who try to blackmail us into doing austerity here. Again I say, did we sign on to some weird treaty, one they don’t dare tell us about? Is our sovereignty already signed away?
Meanwhile, there is a major campaign to get rid of the second amendment. In the past, there would be some incident and then a call to limit guns in some way, but never to this degree. This is the first time I actually hear people suggesting that we get rid of the amendment all together. It used to be an argument about interpreting it, not getting rid of it. That is a disturbing trend. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights can now be eliminated piece by piece. This is not good news. Another disturbing trend, now we have the thought police and “pre-crime.” New York State just passed a law recently that says headshrinkers can remove a person’s right to own a gun because they might have said something “threatening” in a counseling session. Now a figure of speech like, “Gee, I wanna shoot him,” can get your guns taken away. I personally do not own a gun. That is my choice, but I think it is a right, an American right. I could go on explaining why that is important, but I think the point here is the timing of it all. How convenient, first austerity (by the Republicans) and now disarmament (by the Democrats). It looks like the left and right arm of the same creature. Again, did we sign something they are not telling us about?
There is an insidious doom slowly creeping up on us, and it has only gotten minor attention in the news. This is much deadlier than one-hundred 9-11’s. It is deadlier even than the problems with the economy. The reason is because once the damage is done, it cannot be undone. Economic messes and terrorist bombings can be repaired, permanent poisoning of the environment cannot. Little did we know that a quiet deadly invasion was gong on. It was roughly a decade ago. A new way of natural gas drilling was discovered or at least perfected such as to be profitable. This kind of drilling is unlike any previous type of drilling. It all seems so innocent because we have had oil wells for years, and environmental damage was less severe. So eyebrows were not raised as this new method started being used. Then a few people noticed that their drinking water turned an icky brown and was poisonous to drink or even bathe in. Some farmers lost some cattle and a few fish ponds. No one thought it a big deal because it was just a few. But these few have grown into many as this drilling process is spreading across the land. It started in the west and is steadily moving east like the orks of Mordor moving deeper and deeper into middle earth. They call it Fracking. There is not enough space here to describe all the damage it does. I encourage each person to look up “fracking” online. Youtube has a lot. Look up “gaslandthemovie” by Josh Fox. After you are done seeing what happens to the land after they frack it, you will wonder who in their right mind would allow such a thing. Only an insane person would destroy good farmland in this way. Whatever economic benefit they claim cannot offset the damage that it will do because that damage is permanent. The land is rendered unfit to farm on, to raise cattle on, or to live on. This is the biggest threat to national security we have now. It could destroy this nation’s ability to feed its population. It could cause great sickness in our population both due to the water that is poisoned and the air that is polluted. My advice to any one would be, if there is shale under the land, don’t buy a house there. This is not just one more environmental cause. This is like letting nuclear radiation loose. I have to ask, why would anyone let this happen? The Republicans are all for it; yet the Democrats will not seriously stop it, what gives? Did we sign something, some secret treaty they are not telling us about?
One of the political movements that I became acquainted with was the Patriot/Militia movement. I know most people blow these guys off; and for awhile, I was wondering if it was all a bit overblown. Some of it perhaps was, but not all. They were alleging some sort of New World Order plot was going on and that it was poised to take over the United States and rip up our Constitution. I remember a few meetings I went to in Sarasota, Florida back in the early to mid-90’s. Don’t laugh; hundreds of people went to these meetings. There was even a local radio station devoted to that view. We were all told to stock up on food, gear, guns, gold (if you could), and ammo because the New World Order goons were coming. They had certain evidence of this. I agreed on a lot of things except views on economics. We did 100% agree on who the enemy was. My question was, was this enemy actually manifesting? We parted the ways (friendly), and the years passed. We finished with Bill Clinton. We got Bush twice. The New World Order blue-hatted army didn’t seem to arrive. Then, I’d say, during Bush’s second term, I started noticing things. Obama came, and even more things surfaced. It was not some blue-hatted army and black helicopters, but certain predicted things have happened just the same. I remember one militia leader said, “They will take your homes away.” Sure enough, they did. It is just that the banks did instead of an army, but the result is the same. “They will take the guns away,” he said; and they are. “They will violate your property rights.” They are. The frackers can drill under people’s land even against their wishes. Check it out (Google for the film “Split Estate”). “You better buy gold. They are going to ruin the currency.” They are. They are printing money and hyper inflation may not be too far away. A lot of what they said is happening. Perhaps it is just the “who” that they got a little wrong. Did we sign on some treaty? Way back then, the Patriot/Militia definitely believed we did.
There is one group of people no one except the far left wants to criticize directly, the capitalists. Even the militia tip toes around this one, although even they are starting to notice the excess of bankers and crony-capitalism. Hannity just did a special (the same day Hillary finally testified on Benghazi). It was about the big money infesting Washington DC by lobbyists and big companies buying politicians. I thought, wow, he blasted big capital instead of welfare mommas, etc. Even the “wingnuts” of FOX are catching on. When the right wing criticizes capital, then you know it is getting extreme. Remember how in 2008, we had a trillion to hand out to bankers and troubled finance companies? Money flowed like water from our treasury. Now they tell us we don’t have money for granny’s Medicare or food stamps, etc. Inconsistent, huh? Why are some people more special than others? This is where the left is correct. The capitalists get to do whatever they want. If they don’t feel like paying taxes, no one makes them. What a big fuss if these millionaires and billionaires have to pay a few percentage points in tax to balance our budget. The idea that it is more reasonable to nip at senior’s tiny social security checks to balance the budget is ludicrous. I think if there is any belt-tightening, it should be the rich who may have to buy one less Rolls Royce this year. Why do we put up with the richs’ nonsense? Why do they get away with everything like they are the kings of old? Could it be that they are the lords and ladies of the New World Order?
And just who is this “New World Order” anyway? Is it the internationalists? Is it the capitalists? Is it the Muslims? Is it the Illuminati? Is it the energy companies? Who? I think the place to start is to see who comes out the winners. That narrows down the list of suspects. Do some categories overlap? Are there senior and junior members? For, example, energy companies seem to outrank bankers and other businesses. The reason for saying so is that an energy company is free to ruin property where there is a mortgage. That would hurt a banker. Gas companies who frack are ruining houses and farms and devaluing them. People may flee and default on their mortgage. Businesses like wine-makers can be ruined as well. The banks and certain other businesses have every reason to stop the frackers, but it seems they cannot. Does this place energy companies as the big bosses? Another thing, try as some might, no one is serous about getting off fossil fuels. The energy companies would not like that, so we all have to die on this planet for them. The energy companies are so powerful that the whole planet must commit suicide for them. Internationalists are likely servants of capital because capitalism is international. The Muslims may be dupes or pawns of capital, or it may be the other way around. I am not sure. I have sought an Illuminati but have found no evidence. I only looked for an Illuminati because some have said they are the ultimate wire-pullers of the world. Trying to look for the world-controllers is a popular pastime. Many of the fingered culprits are fanciful or outdated, but capital is very much with us.
Then there is what has become of the CIA itself. During World War II, they were the OSS. After the war, in 1947, they became the CIA. Their very strong years were from the 40’s through the 60’s. They were more secret then. Then the congress started poking around, and certain people started saying bad things about them. Their wings got a bit clipped. This in itself is a long story, one that I think Fred Rustmann, Jr. tells best. This is an interview with Fred Rustmann, a CIA officer of high rank who goes back as far as the cold war. It is on the issue of covert operations and the need for the CIA to be strong.
All I can say is that when the CIA was strong, it was also the strongest years of the U.S. as a world power. That is when we were telling other countries what to do. Now these other countries tell us what to do. Things have changed and not for the better. They had a guardian role, in silent ways. I ran across an old document of theirs long since declassified. They used to keep tabs on foreign activity inside the U.S. They used to pay big capitalists little visits from time to time to ask what is going on with their foreign dealings. Between the lines I got the impression that they were keeping tabs on the capitalists too. They were perhaps reminding them of their duty as patriotic Americans. This was our granddaddy’s capitalism. Yes, it was O.K. to make money; but you put the county first. Now the capitalists do not care about their country anymore. They would hurt us to get one more nickel. They willingly paid a higher tax rate then. Now they whine at paying any taxes and ship our jobs overseas. It is no longer our granddaddy’s capitalism. This is capitalism of an extreme. Now the CIA is subservient to capital. I wonder if the CIA is soon to be eliminated. First Bush sets up a whole new department, Homeland Security. Later, the CIA is no longer central but is just one spoke of a whole massive collection of agencies that answer to another chief. Then, there is a scandal about its last director. Now there is hysteria about them torturing terrorists. There are endless news articles about water-boarding and black sites. They have become the subject of tabloids. I can see why the coming New World Order wants them out of the way. Despite the fact that there are dubious persons and policies there, there may still be many people there loyal to the United States. Newer departments are more likely filled with these New World Order type people. We no doubt signed something, and that something wants the CIA gone.
Doomsday is coming:
Capitalism has gone off the deep end. They have gone into excess. Ever notice how each depression/recession is longer and worse than the last. I saw a graph someone made once that shows how each is deeper and longer, spanning many years. Each boom cycle happens when they come up with some new speculative scheme. This involves some very “creative” investment where they pass funny money around to create some sort of fake value where everyone gets rich on air. Eventually the whole house of cards comes crashing down. Then they think of a new scheme. Ever notice how each scheme has less and less to do with actually producing something? There are all sorts of books and articles to back this up. Karl Marx predicted there would come a day when the capitalists would produce all sorts of stuff; but because they pay the workers such crappy wages, the workers cannot buy the goods, so the whole system freezes up. Capitalism dies. This Marx figured out because he found out what makes the capitalism game tick. The capitalist is basically a parasite who lives off the labor of others. If the capitalist owner is personally involved in his company, he is less of a parasite because he creates value. An example would be an inventor capitalist who personally invents something himself and then hires workers to produce and market it. A pure parasite capitalist is one who never enters the production facility and just lives off the dividends and hires others to do all the inventing and thinking. That is why I am dumbfounded at people who complain about welfare bums because this is bumdom in the extreme. Unfortunately this is a very common capitalist type. They are siphoning off the value their workers produce; therefore, the workers do not get all of the value of their labor in their wages. They get only part of it. Think about it. If a few are siphoning off the top, and the bottom gets only part, eventually all the value goes to the top, and the bottom becomes impoverished. Then, the capitalist has trouble selling his product and goes bust. End of system….but not quite. This system should have ended years ago so why hasn’t it? Because somebody waved a wand and did a bit of sorcery to keep the game going. They got creative and concocted a new alchemy. They turned debt into value. Let’s hand the workers credit cards and let them borrow so they keep eternally shopping. Gotta keep the game going! Let’s also suck off the taxpayer in terms of government contracts and bailouts. They managed to add to capitalism an unnatural long life using sorcery. But, the game will be up soon. It looks like they are running out of tricks. Even economic knob turning down at the Federal Reserve and endless government bailouts will cease to work. They see the end coming.
I personally think the capitalists plan to run out the clock. When the game is up, it is suicide time. I would not be at all surprised if they each have a cyanide pill handy. They may be the last ones alive on this dying planet, but eventually even they know they have to die. There is no livable planet nearby for them to run to. I think they are doing like Hitler did in the last weeks of 1945 when he went in that bunker. They want to go down in a Viking funeral. The idea of some other system replacing them is something they can’t stand the thought of. I think it gives them some kind of thrill to decide who is the last one standing. This is why they do not care if we have clean water, clean air, or enough farmland to grow food to feed our nation or the world. It is the same reason Hitler was willing to destroy all of Germany when his time was over. I think the CIA and the military is at some point going to figure this out and do just what Hitler’s generals tried to do, “off” the dictator. I just hope the CIA and military have better luck.
The question is, will it be able to be stopped in time? The CIA needs to wake up soon, or it will be too late. They are really the only ones who could do something. The politicians are all bought off and controlled. The voters have no one to vote for. The revolutionary parties cannot do anything. I personally know having been around plenty of socialist and communist parties. They are pitifully small, and they did not do their homework. The neo-Nazis are still acting like it is 1933 and chasing antiquated conspiracies and enemies of that time. The Libertarians are living in some 1776 imaginary anarchist paradise. The Klan is still in 1865. The militia is right on about a lot of things, but they need leadership; and they also need to appeal to people who are not property owners. Their concept of economics is antiquated. The CIA is smart enough. They have led and influenced revolutions in other countries. They know how to do it if they want to. They will have to turn their attention to crisis at home. Aragorn needs to ascend to the throne of Gondor. It is time to re-forge the sword, or to put it in the terms of another story, pull the sword out of the stone.
Time is running out because: We are running out of fossil fuels. At home we are using more deadly ways of getting fossil fuels, and abroad we are dealing with a nest of hornets to try to get oil from there. Capitalism is acting like it is the last party on the Titanic. Earth’s environment is degrading rapidly, and more farmland is getting unusable due to either drought or pollution while human populations increase. Famine is in our future. Sir Isaac Newton believed the world would end in 2060. It looks like he might be right.
We need to do these things: Get off the sauce. If we took all the money we spend on the war on terror and spent it on invention, we could find a non-polluting source of energy and a way to utilize it. That would be a good place to spend government money, grants to inventors. Let a hundred Teslas bloom! The most important national security objective is to protect our fertile lands. Stop fracking whatever it takes. Stop the environmental degradation. If we get off fossil fuels, we can get out of the middle east. They can go back to their medieval Islamic paradise, but at least we don’t have to look at it any more. Then we can just shove them out of the U.S. and not have to kiss their rear-ends any longer. We need to get out of these entangling international treaties and groupings and only deal with individual foreign counties on a case by case basis. No more supporting and funding countries who hate us. That should save us a bundle on our budget. We need to go back to an economy that is a mix of left and right. There can be private business; but it should be regulated, taxed, and not allowed to get out of hand. The country always comes first. Things like Social Security and social safety nets are always to be assumed, and those that question that should put a sock in it or be considered unpatriotic. Capitalists, who betray our country and hire cheap labor over seas or try to hide their money out of the country, should be prosecuted or find that they have “accidents” outside the country. The CIA should return to its full silent guardian role and keep tabs on these capitalists and make sure they stay patriotic.
I think such is possible, but it means that those who can act must act. The CIA has to stop being the lapdog of political sellouts and New World Order types. The CIA must first purge itself from bad influences. There is always the danger of the CIA being misused by these internationalist invaders, but they must not let that happen. If the CIA should be shut down, individual officers, recently cut loose, may have to act on their own or form their own groups of trusted persons. They can join with the retired ones of similar sentiment. Don’t forget those of us who are the common people out here. We are frightened and leaderless. I fear that should chaos come, that things will merely erupt into violence of a senseless sort. We need people who can guide the rest of us during these times of crisis.
I personally would like to meet and even date a CIA officer. This person would likely be retired because I don’t think the current ones can reveal their status. I would hope for someone who would understand the things I am saying here. Even if I have a few details off, I would hope for someone who understands. I am rather frightened and don’t even sleep too well any more. I sometimes wake up in the night with scary thoughts. I know that does not sound very macho, but I am one small person; and just because I am not a happy idiot, I get frightened of what I see in the future. The proper venue for this is my profile at another site for personal contacting:
