The International Center for Non-Violent Conflict is all about Violence and War


(Peter Ackerman top, Michael Ledeen bottom)

Another associate of the International Center for Non-Violent Conflict responded to my diary pointing out the association of Peter Ackerman founder of the ICNC to Michael Ledeen who is a Neo-Con accused of the Niger Forgeries which led to war with Iraq and many other known forgeries, listed below. Here is the response from a ICNC associate. The ICNC and Peter Ackerman are funders of Narco News.

“Dear Mr. Piddy: Like Stephen Zunes, I've also worked with ICNC, and I'm afraid that Mr. Ackerman writing a single op-ed with someone is zero evidence of any relationship with the co-author beyond the words in the article. If all the scholars and pundits who'd ever co-written op-eds were to be held responsible for the other writings and doings of their co-authors, all of them would eventually be responsible for everything that any of them were doing, which of course is impossible. Zunes actually did a trenchant article on why this kind of logic ("X knows Y who knows Z, so X is responsible for what Z does") doesn't hold water:

Michael Ledeen and Peter Ackerman both share the view that they should involve themselves in creating conflict in other nations based on their view that these nations are not “free”. That’s why they belong to the “Freedom Foundation”.

Here is what Michael Ledeen and Peter Ackerman wrote together in one of their articles called “Change Needs Help from Friends”.

“Freedom-loving people know what we want to see in Beirut, Damascus and Tehran: the central square bursting with citizens demanding an end to tyranny, massive strikes shutting down the national economy, the disintegration of security forces charged with maintaining order, and the consequent departure of the tyrants and the beginnings of a popularly elected government.” (Michael Ledeen and Peter Ackerman)

Iran has a democratically elected government for one. Michael Ledeen and Peter Ackerman of the ICNC seek to destroy it and replace it with another government more to their liking. This is not something that can be accomplished without violence and war. And that has proven already to be an observable truth in Iran where many revolutionary protestors have been jailed, sentenced to death in light of the real violence there that has already occurred. Violence that is inevitable that the ICNC seeks to promote through destablilization.

The ICNC may point to the so called Rose revolution which was funded by George Soros in part and the Orange Revolution. These events were influenced by outside sources who supported groups opposed to the governments in place. On what basis does a foreign source involve itself in the affairs of another country? Usually because it may be profitable to do so. For economic reasons which are covered up in the language of "freedom" and "liberty" by groups like the ICNC.

Michael Ledeen is a person who has an interest in fascism as a form of government. Here are some of his quotes, which are self-descriptive:

On a book he wrote about Mussolini:
"He never had enough confidence in the Italian people to permit them a genuine participation in fascism."

September 4, 2001
“Stability is an unworthy American mission, and a misleading concept to boot. We do not want stability in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and even Saudi Arabia; we want things to change. The real issue is not whether, but how to destabilize.” (Wall Street Journal, 9/4/2002)

March 25, 2003 (Referring to the Iraq War)
“I think the level of casualties is secondary. I mean, it may sound like an odd thing to say, but all the great scholars who have studied American character have come to the conclusion that we are a warlike people and that we love war. What we hate is not casualties but losing. And if the war goes well and if the American public has the conviction that we’re being well-led and that our people are fighting well and that we’re winning, I don’t think casualties are going to be the issue.” [American Enterprise Institute).

Michael Ledeen has lived in Italy and has been responsible for working with SISMI the Italian intelligence agency and promoting propaganda that indicated before the Jimmy Carter defeat by Ronald Reagan that Billy Carter (Jimmy's brother) had accepted bribes that he in fact did not accept. Ledeen attempted to blame the Soviet Union for the attack on the Pope in the 1980’s.

Ledeen is suspected of being the author of the Niger forgeries first published in the Italian magazine Panorama (where he regularly contributed articles), that led the U.S into war with Iraq. All of the above events had their origin in first being published in Italy. They are acts of destablilization.


Ledeen was also involved with Robert McFarlane in the Iran Contra Scandal. Ledeen actually sold TOW missiles to the Israelis who would then sell them to Iran. Iran is the nation Ledeen currently would like to see "regime change" in. Is there a method to his madness?

Iran Contra resulted in War in Nicaragua, many people were killed to remove the Sandinistas and Daniel Ortega from power and bring “Democracy” to Nicaragua. Whoops! Daniel Ortega is currently the democratically elected president of Nicaragua. Narco News reports on the events in Latin America.They have not reported to my knowledge that Michael Ledeen was involved in fighting the Sandanistas.

Michael Ledeen is an unabashed fascist. I don't think anyone can come to any other conclusion. I don't mean fascist in a pejorative sense. I mean he ascribes whooly or in part to fascism as a viable system of government. He can hardly contain himself from saying so. Here is an excerpt from his book on Mussolini.

"Paradoxically, preserving liberty may require the rule of a single leader a dictator willing to use those dreaded 'extraordinary measures, which few know how, or are willing, to employ."

This is Peter Ackerman’s friend.

Where are the articles Peter Ackerman has written with Michael Moore?

Well, he’s not writing articles with Michael Moore. But he did introduce President Bush when Bush spoke at the Freedom House where Ackerman is Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Why would Bush choose to speak at Freedom House and have Peter Ackerman introduce him? There can be only one answer. Freedom house and Peter Ackerman are representative of Bush’s thinking and policies. It's really not that complicated. This isn't guilt by association. It's guilt by colloboration.

The Cato Institute of which Ackerman is on the board of directors, along with Rupert Murdoch is a Libertarian think tank that wishes to privatize social security they receive funding from the Scaife foundation. Richard Scaife promoted the Monica Lewinsky scandal and is virulently anti Hilliary Clinton. So is Narco News, so is Peter Ackerman.

Freedom house and it’s past or current board of directors: Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Otto Reich, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Steve Forbes.

I didn’t see Michael Moore’s name in there. Ralph Feingold isn’t on there either. Neither is Steven Zunes for some reason. How about Chuck Schumer even? Not even John McCain! The Neo-Cons don’t like McCain.

It’s not really funny.

Here is an excellent article by Stephan Gowans that beautifully describes what is actually going on.


Stephan Gowans sums it up perfectly

“Ackerman and Helvey’s new type of mercenary are practioners of what the CIA used to call destabilization. To escape the taint of its CIA past, destabilization has been rebranded. It’s now called nonviolent resistance (NVR), shrewdly drawing upon the reputation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent struggles for black civil rights in the 1960s. But where King sought to bring about change within the system, and in the United States, NVR is strictly a foreign affair, seeking to overturn governments abroad that operate outside the system of U.S. imperial domination.”

The conclusion I come to is that the ICNC is a ruse. Like the Freedom Foundation, where Ackerman was a chairperson, and the AEI, these alleged “foundations” seek to undermine other nations in the same way that the CIA has long since undermined other nations. As Markos Moulitsas once blurted, “by killing labor leaders” and by bribing labor leaders to strike, providing propaganda materials, paying off generals to revolt and assassinating world leaders like Allende in Chile. Assassination is not something the ICNC advocates. But it ican often be the inevitable result of interference with other nations internal affairs

It's not to say that everyone in ICNC is a secret agent. Quite the contrary. Many have bonafide leftist credentials. What's happened is they have been seduced by a purposely vague, amorphous hidden ideology which they cannot comphrehend whose objectives are masked by verbally progressive language.

They just aren't real smart people. How many awards or degress a person holds is never a measure of intelligence. Intelligence is exhibited by any organism that acts in a way that is beneficial to it's survival. That almost always requires seeking a stable atmosphere in their environment. Destablilizing other nations is utterly stupid and always results in a contradiction of the alleged stated objective. That's why Michael Ledeen who once sold missles to Iran now wants to destroy their government and why Daniel Ortega is president of Nicaragua. All these actions by Ledeen resulted in 0 benefit to him or his imagined political ideals.

There is, simply put, a kind of mass mental illness in America. It's not new, but it's expressing itself very strongly in these times. Zunes rebuttal to Gowans article is absurd. The proof is exemplified in the actions of people like president Obama who seduced so many "progressives" people into thinking he was liberal, anti-war, anti corporate and protective of the enviornment. He's the prime example of whats being done.

Only now, the CIA works through them and they call themselves “non-violent” centers of CONFLICT. The world CONFLICT almost gets lost. They are creating CONFLICT, destabilization. That means they are ruining people lives in order to remove those people as well as totally innocent people on the periphery. And why are they doing this?

In addition to being very dumb people, they are also very confused people. Typically these people come from suburban or rural backgrounds where their wealth further isolates them from the general population. Then, they attend prestigious Universities which educate them into thinking they are some how “special and privileged”. They are “educated”.

Most of “THEM”…the rest of the world who have to work for a living, the unfortunates, are not “educated” enough or intelligent enough to have amassed private wealth and the "freedom" private wealth affords.

Ackerman formerly worked for Goldman Sachs and his superior intelligence allowed him to amass private wealth and afforded him time to delve into his hobby, "world affairs". I guess he didn't want to become a piano player.

And thus begins the Neo-con never ending circular journey into an unfeeling world of utter confusion, arrogance, intolerance and blatant stupidity all justified by their imagined social standing which exists through an imposed sheer brute force.

They impose their conception of the world on everyone else and attempt to keep the public "down". America has been keeping other nations "down", keeping them from economic independence and being able to resist American influence for decades. Now it's turning more of it's attention toward itself.
There should be an analysis of Narco News and it’s articles. Al Giordano of Narco News is a proponent of this kind of so called community organizing that the ICNC and Michael Ledeen advocate, where gringo’s run around in Latin America and try to help communities overcome the oppression imposed upon them by other gringo’s.

The only problem is, it’s the same gringo. And what the gringo needs to do, is mind his own gringo business. It’s what the Conquistador’s did who were followed by the clergy. The conquistadors would rape, pillage and infect. The priests would come after them offering salvation in exchange for slavery in all it’s forms. They would protect the slaves from the Conquistadors in exchange for building churches, service and sex.

What’s interesting about Narco News is Al Giordano never criticizes Barack Obama. There is no criticism of Obama for what happened in Honduras that I have seen on Narco News.

Obama is currently being hailed by the Neo-Cons as the new War President. William Kristol is delighted, Ken Adelman actually voted for him. Adelman knew what he was getting. So did I.

Many members of right wing groups who were anti- Clinton like the AEI and Scaife groups are actually supportive of Obama as he continues the policies of George Bush. Ken Adelman for example supported Obama who promised as a candidate to expand the war in Afghanistan.

So what we have is a kind of velvet revolution in America. Where right wing groups pose or fund other groups posing in the language of the left to go about seducing listless and sometimes well meaning people on the left by creating appropriate behavioral language that signifiies inclusion, safety and the security of sharing a kind of social like mindedness that seems to embrace the values of the left in terms especially of equality. But it isn't equality, it's freedom. Freedom for corporations that offers the illusion of trickle down freedom for the lower forms. Equality is an imposition of the government. As Neo cons we want less government, more freedom.

And what we get is a Barack Obama who many Neo-Cons voted for. He's got the left eating out of his hand. And what's in his hand has been put there by the likes of Peter Ackerman.

This is really twisted. AEI, ICNC, Freedom House, Scaife have discovered how to manipulate people on a mass scale.

And it's working.

Just ask Steve Zunes.


Let me respond by saying the following:

Mr Ackerman has written at least 2 articles with Michael Ledeen, not one. Here’s the second.


Here Mr. Ledeen calls Mr. Ackerman his friend.

“My friend Peter Ackerman will delight in these pictures; he has long been an advocate of non-violent revolution. As I have.” Michael Ledeen


Michael Ledeen refers to his friend Peter Ackerman often as illustrated in this comment for the American Enterprise Institute

“As Peter Ackerman reminds me, just because the opposition isn’t using guns, the confrontation is not less conflictual. The goal is to bring down the regime and that will take discipline, courage, and very large numbers.” Michael Ledeen


Michael Ledeen and Peter Ackerman are friends and they have a common political point of view. That is why they write articles together, refer to themselves as friends and appear on the same boards together.

The School of Authentic Journalism: AEI/CIA Connections at NARCO NEWS

(What has happened at Narco News is happening everywhere to organizations purporting to represent the left. They are being absorbed by the right. President Obama will announce a troop increase. Many people feel deceived by this. The following is an partial example of how these deceptions occur.)

Peter Ackerman has written political articles with Michael Ledeen a neo-con (American Enterprise Institute AEI) and associate of many members of PNAC. PNAC is the Project for a New American Century. PNAC is the neo-con plan for American world dominance. Peter Ackerman is the founder and funder of a group (ICNC) that funds Narco News and it's School of Authentic Journalism. Michael Ledeen is a neo- con who has been accused of creating the Niger Forgeries that helped lead to war with Iraq on phony WMD issues. Al Giordano wrote a response to a diary on Narco News and it’s involvement with Jack Duvall and Peter Ackerman who have both been board members with former CIA chief and PNAC spokesman James Woolsey at Freedom House and The Arlington Insitute:

Giordano: “The suggestion that contributions to our work (and especially one that is matched by hundreds of small donors that support authentic journalism) would in any way change what we do is absurd and the writer hasn't offered a shred of evidence anyway.”

Well here's a shred.

Jack Duvall's photo is 8th from the bottom on the Narco News website. It turns out that [Jack Duvall, a producer http://www.narconews.com/Issue60/article3813.html] is a instructor of Narco News Journalists (though he has never been identified anywhere as "journalist") with their school, The School of Authentic Journalism, which Peter Ackerman and Jack Duvall fund with funds from the International Center for Non Violent Conflict which seeks to overthrow the sometimes democratically elected leadership of nations as varied as Venezuela, Ukraine, Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan. Peter Ackerman is also a board member of the ICNC. He has written articles with Michael Ledeen a PNAC member. One of those articles is called “Say you want a Revolution” From Anti War, Justin Raimondo
“Say You Want a Revolution,” is the title of a piece by neoconservative Michael “Faster Please” Ledeen, a tireless advocate of the U.S. waging endless wars of “liberation,” and Peter Ackerman, chairman of the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC). Its theme: more U.S. tax dollars to fund “revolutionaries” in a new model of “regime change” – as in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan."
Here the ICNC outlines it’s purpose from it’s website:
The ICNC develops and encourages the use of civilian-based, nonmilitary strategies to establish and defend democracy provides assistance in the training and deployment of field advisors , to deepen the conceptual knowledge and practical skills of applying nonviolent strategies in conflicts throughout the world where progress toward democracy and human rights is possible."
The School for Authentic Journalism sends it’s investigative reporters out to the “field” to report. Jack Duvall is on the Board of The Arlington Institute. Ex CIA director James Woolsey has also been a member of the Arlington Institute which is described by Source Watch:
Jack DuVall is the president of International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC), an organization that has produced what can only be termed propaganda films shown on PBS and on university campuses around the US. Note that ICNC is also a project of Peter Ackerman, a right-wing operator. DuVall and James Woolsey, the former head of the CIA, founded the The Arlington Institute.
The Arlington Institutes clients are all 4 branches of the military among others. They try to predict the future. Their presentation on video impressed me as unbearably goofy and an attempt to quantify and justify superstition using big words with authoritative voicing. It was in effect really stupid, bordering on silly. These people are pretentious and very dumb, calling themselves futurists.

The CIA is an organization of very backward people who are bereft of any real intelligence and it is not surprising to see an organization like this associated with them. It's another spin off on "Men Who Stare at Goats".

Duvall has been active in the overthrow of Chavez in Venezuela.
However, Duvall does admit in his letter that in March 2005 the ICNC “gave support to the [Albert] Einstein Institute for a workshop it conducted on nonviolent action for Venezuelans, [which was] held in Boston”.
Narco News recently awarded 24 scholarships to up and coming journalists and “communicators” where they receive “training “ in investigative reporting, “documentary film-making, viral video production, use of new media technologies, photojournalism, safety when reporting in conflict zones, use of the Freedom of Information Act to make government documents public, how to write a news story, how to use a cell phone camera, making effective media criticism and other work skills. “documentary film-making, viral video production, use of new media technologies, photojournalism, safety when reporting in conflict zones, use of the Freedom of Information Act to make government documents public, how to write a news story, how to use a cell phone camera, making effective media” critsicism”

So we have a right wing organization involved in the overthrow of some democratically elected governments (Venezuela) funding and providing instructors to what is considered a left wing reporting service, Narco News.

It would appear that Narco News is a compromised news source. Certainly the people who make it up are not all from the CIA. But it would appear that they have been infiltrated, compromised, seduced and altered by the presence of the ICNC with Peter Ackerman and Jack Duvall and their PNAC, CIA associations.

I would urge the Narco News 'students" to investigate themselves. Investigate what is really going on and how some of them may be used in the future to gather information from the field for those people associated with PNAC and or the CIA.

The CIA is well known for this kind of work. Jack Duvall will personally instruct the students of journalism. He will get to know them. Perhaps the students will trust him. One day, and that day may never come, or it may soon come. Jack Duvall may call his former students in the field to look into something or provide first hand information as to events in a particular country. He may provide them with information that will lead them to report a story that favors the political point of view of Jack Duvall, Peter Ackerman and PNAC spokesperson, former CIA director, James Woolsey.

Something that the Arlington Institute would approve of.

Many of the people at Narco News I'm sure are sincere. But they have certainly been infiltrated and have or will be used by people asssociated with Jack Duvall and Peter Ackerman. Those people are members of PNAC or may be in the CIA.
The big question is of course why does Al Giordano accept Jack Duvall as a contributor and "instructor".

Perhaps the people at Narco News are just as confused as the general population as to what's going on.

The purpose historically of world leadership and organizations like the CIA is to keep the populace confused, off balance and uninformed.

PNAC and the CIA like it that way.

Obama is a President of Terror and War, not Peace

It seems clear to me that Barak Obama will become the most aggressive, war like President America has ever had in terms of confronting nations that have not attacked America.

The increase in troops in Afghanistan does not reflect a reduction of troops in Iraq. Along with the troop increases will be the invisible private contractors who continue to devour the public's wealth while avoiding their attention.

Barak Obama is presiding over a nation whose largest business is making war.


We are now hearing the "real" war is in Pakistan. It was first, Iraq then Afghanistan.

What is happening is clearly an inflammation of war that can only result in an inevitable response from Iran or Israel or both.

It seems clear that Obama's actions will result in a larger event.
Obama has always said he is open to the possibility of bombing Iran if necessary. Iran is confronted with U.S. troops at it's border.

Obama, the man of rhetorical peace but war in action is preparing for further adventures in Latin America after the overthrow of Zelaya in Honduras, and the planting of troops in Colombia ready to fight and or threaten into compliance nations like Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and perhaps Brazil.

Obama continues the security state buildup in the United States with the training of local police departments by Blackwater.

How serious is Obama about security? Not very. He's serious about funding and developing security corporations who are largely made up of ex-military and former intelligence agents with connections to powerful corporations like Lockheed Martin whose business is keeping America at War.

But he's not really serious about security as witnessed by the entrance of two childish clowns who deceived the heavy security appartus "protecting" him at the Whitehouse.

The whole idea that Americans should be concerned about their safety was amply demonstrated as a hoax intended to disturb, make fearful and confuse the American public by the easy entry into the Whitehouse of two poorly disguised clowns.

The United States is not fighting anyone in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, they are simply killing people because it is profitable to do so.

No one "over there" is serioulsy seeking to harm America. It's just the opposite. It is America that is the terrorist. And it is Obama who is the Terrorist President

Narco News is supported in part by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. Narco News has a school. The school is called the School of Authentic Journalism. The international Center on Nonviolent Conflict matches donations to the school by other parties.


Jack Duvall is the president of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. Jack Duvall and James Woolsey (CIA, PNAC) founded The Arlington Institute. James Woolsey is the former head of the CIA. He is currently listed on the Board of Directors of the Arlington Institute.

James Woolsey is a member of PNAC, the Project for a New American Century. PNAC is considered a neo-con work establishing permanent America domination of the world.

PNAC is avidly anti socialist, anti-Chavez in Venezuela and anti- Zelaya in Honduras.

James Woolsey has advocated the bombing of Iraq, Iran and Syria. He accused Iraq of causing 911 on 9/11.

Peter Ackerman is also founder of ICNC. He is the head of "Freedom House" who Stephan Gowans calls a "CIA interlocked think tank".


Peter Ackerman (a former junk bond trader who worked closely with Michael Milliken) is accused by Eva Golinger of trying to destablilze Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.


Why does a group like ICNC who seeks to encourage Anti Chavez activists in Venezuela, fund Narco News and it's "school" which purport to have a Pro Chavez stance?

ICNC met with dissidents from Venezuela to discuss how to resist Chavez in "non violent" ways.

Narco News purports to be a website that’s reports on the Drug War and Democracy in all of the Americas. Why does it accept funding from organizations whose members are associated with extreme right wing reactionary ideologies whose goals are the destablization of countries like Venezuela, Bolivia, Honduras and Ecuador amongst others?

Why is there a paucity of articles on Colombia. Colombia is the center of the “drug war” and the United States lonely major ally in “all of the America’s".

Al Giordano is the head of Narco News and he is a supporter of Daily Kos and Markos Moulitsas who he has called the “Saul Alinksy” of our age.

Markos Moulitsas believes the CIA is a liberal organization with it’s “heart in the right place". While running Daily Kos, Markos Moulitsas says he applied to join the CIA and went all the way to the end of the application process having gotten to the point where he was given an assignment to be a spy in Washington D.C.

The history of the CIA in Central and South America should be well known to anyone interested in politics.

The School for Authentic Journalism purports to train people to be journalists. These people then fan out to various nations and become information gatherers in the field.

The information is gathered. Who gets the information?

What I would like to know is, What’s going on here?

The information "gathered" above was gathered by me.

I looked up one thing, then another and discovered who the ICNC was and who was in the ICNC.

I wonder if that's authentic journalism?

I don't think so. But it's information.

It's up to the reader to put the pieces together.

But let's be clear. Very conservative, if not radically conservative organizations are either connected to, or directly supporting Narco News.

Obama Will Send More Troops to Afghanistan

"Until I’m satisfied that we’ve got the right strategy, I’m not going to be sending some young man or woman over there – beyond what we already have." Barack Obama September 20th 2009

This comment is a ruse. It is intended to convey the attitude of Barack Obama as someone who is reluctant to send more troops to Afghanistan. It is part of a play. Another part of the play are leaks that Stanley McChrystal is in some way the antagonist in the drama, calling for more troops. When we recieve government supplied information or "leaks" from unnamed government sources about the in house dynamics of our government, the infighting that is said to occur, we must be at least sketptical. Almost all information about the government comes from the government, through, not from "independent sources".

I believe Obama will call for more troops in Afghanistan and an general increase in military activity, bombing and troops thoughout the world and most immediately in Pakistan. General McChrystal has allegedly asked for 40.000 according to "confidential" documents leaked to the press. Perhaps Obama will give him 20,000 since that is the amount of troops he is REALLY asking for or that they have agreed upon in advance.

In order to make this troop increase palatable, Obama must look reluctant to sending them. That will keep the "left" confused and unable to mount a response and the troop increase satisfies the right.

Obama always sides with whoever he perceives as being the strongest. The military is always seen as a source of strength and he will always side with them. The military and it's advisors will always be percieved by Obama as stronger than civilian interests.

Obama may turn out to be the most militant of presidents. I believe he will be using the military everywhere. He is sending troops to Columbia who will fight, according to the Ambassador of Columbia, William Brownfield, in the jungles and cities of Columbia against FARC. The real reason for U.S. troops being sent to Columbia is to fight Venezuela or at least to bring about, or be prepared for that eventuality.

Recently Obama has decided not to install defensive missiles in Europe and this pleases the Russians. The reason for this action is to make way most probably for a military blockade of Iran and or bombing of Iran.

Additionally one might ask why are so many people suddenly being arrested for terrorism?

The reason is simple.

It's a set up.

The U.S. population is being prepared psychologically for a major troop increases by Obama in Afghanistan. This is the same pattern that Bush used. The idea is to create fear, uncertainty among the people. In a climate of fear, things like troop increases and general military action become acceptable

It's time to start recognizing the patterns. These patterns have occurred countless times in the Bush administration. Homeland security alert levels always preceded an increase in troops or some military or even domestic action or congressional vote.

America is being set up. The emotions of the American people are being played with. Americans are being made to feel fear. The controlling interests of this nation see the population as objects to be manipulated. This is occurring in governments all over the world. It's the political style or the ruling classes as they concentrate wealth and power to an almost exclusive level. The fear that people experience is in fact secretly relieved when Obama announces a major troop increase.

Whether someone is Liberal or Conservative they may be, most likely relieved to find the troops are going to Afghanistan to protect them. We become only dimly aware the relief and do not associate the introduction of fear with the relief of "troops being sent to "protect" America".

And so there is no protest.

Additionally we find "terrorists" are being arrested with little evidence or through a dubious entrapment and charged with terrorism. This illustrates the idea of the previous administration that new attacks are imminent. There have however, been NO Attacks. The only people involved in any attacks are individuals supplied with money and weapons under the supervision of the government who then arrest these people under an entrapment scheme.

Why I Believe Obama is not the Anti-Christ

Does this man look like the Anti-Christ to you?

I'm almost postive that Obama is not the Anti-Christ.

A lot of speculation (even among liberals) about Obama being the Anti-Christ is now floating around in the media. I've done an brutal, merciless, exhaustive and thorough investigation. I would like to put an end to this speculation.

Many people, especially on the right, are using biblical references and the works of Nostradamus to butress their view of Obama as the Anti-Christ. As a geniune, authentic journalist, I find this a totally subjective view not based on facts. We authentic journalists look for facts, not specualtion to report. The attacks on Obama are merely smears used to fit their bitter prejudices and bigotry.

Although it is true Nostradamus had visions of the Anti-Christ as a man in his 40’s of Muslim descent, and Obama meets that description. This is not proof.

Nostradamus saw the Anti Christ as a charasmatic, man with a broad smile who people would be attracted to. The masses would flock to this man, "Mabus" and he would promise them false HOPE and CHANGE. He would promise the masses Peace before he gained power. After achieving power, The Anti Christ would destroy everything.

I have to ask: Has Barak Obama destroyed everything?

Maintaining the troop levels in Iraq and increasing the troop levels in Afghanistan, bombing Pakistan, threatening to Bomb Iran, sending troops to Columbia, bailing out wall street financial firms with public wealth is not exactly destroying the world, now is it?

Nostradamus said the name of the Anti-Christ would be Mabus. Well Obama's name isn't Mabus. It's Obama. Though it is true that if you combine the names of Bush and Obama you get ObaMABUSh. And Mabus is right there in the middle indicating that both men are in fact part of the same Anti-Christ. Well that's ridiculous!



On my website I put an end to the idea that Bush was the Anti-Christ long ago.



Some complain that Obama has only been in office for 8 months and that’s not enough time to destroy everything.

Obama is the world’s most powerful man. Everyone agrees with that. As the world’s most powerful man he could certainly destroy the world easily enough by pressing a little red button. He hasn’t done that. Not yet. That doesn’t sound like the Anti-Christ to me.

Neither is keeping Guantanamo in limbo and open, and denying “detainees” who have been kidnapped and tortured the right to trial, or continuing the policy of rendition (kidnapping of suspects) refusing to investigate war crimes and the reasons for entry on false "information" into Iraq or lies that the Bush administration may have told. It just doesn't reach the Anti-Christ level.

Although the bible in Aramaic does use the word Baraq (lightening) to describe the Anti-Christ falling like lightening from the heavens this is clearly a coincidence.


The fact that the word “Bam Maw” in the bible refers to a high place in the clouds is used by some on the right to further justify the idea that Obama is the Anti Christ. This should not be used by those on the left who are dissatisfied with his policies to further promote the idea that Obama is the Anti-Christ. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In Luke 10:18 Jesus, who is the Son of God, and ought to know, therefore, what he’s talking about, said:

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightening (Bam Waw) falling from the heavens.

Well, some of our friends on the right are trying to use that to suggest that Barack O Bama is not only the Anti- Christ but Satan too! I suppose you could make the case that Sham Wow means Devil in Aramaic and that Vince Shlomi is the Anti Christ.


Aramaic was the language Jesus spoke (Jesus was illiterate and didn’t know how to read or write or much less speak Greek like Paul) and according to the bible, which is like, the bible? Ok?, Jesus said that the name of Satan was “Barak O Bamwaw”. Obama and O Bamwaw are two different names.

I will grant that there may be a slight similairity between the names Barak Obama and Barak O Bamwaw, but similarities exist everywhere. This is not proof. Authentic journalists like myself do not use similitude, we use facts.

Acording to Gore Vidal in his book "Live from Golgotha", Paul was the first gay man to truly love Jesus. He and his partner Timothy were bi-lingual and spread the word of Jesus as they pranced around all throughout the Mediterranean gaining donations from wealthy widows.

According to A.N. Wilson in his book, "Paul a Life", Paul never met Jesus except when he had a vision of Jesus as a Bush. Now that’s something to think about!

Jesus couldn’t read or write. Now how could an illiterate person like Jesus know that one day Barak Obama would become president of the United States and destroy the world?

You see how ridiculous this is? How mixed up people can get?

Getting back to Earth, we find that Obama is shielding CIA agents who tortured people, but he is not shielding CIA agents who went outside the limits of torture that Bush intended for torture. That doesn’t sound like what the Anti Christ would do, now does it?


Even more ridiculous is the following:

One of the winning lottery numbers in the president-elect's home state was 666— which, as everyone knows, is the sign of the Beast (also known as the Antichrist). "It is very eerie, and I take it for a sign as to who he really is," wrote one of Strandberg's correspondents.


How someone can assume that this makes Barak Obama the Anti-Christ is beyond me. As far as I know there is no 666 imprinted on his head. His hair is fashionably short enough and if it were there, it would certainly been identified by one his Illinois barbers. And just because Illinois is rife with corruption with 3 governors in the last few years being sent to prison and a 4th, Rod Blagojevich being indicted, that doesn’t mean that the Anti Christ will come from Illinois. Or that a barber from illinois would be corrupt and hide the information.

Nowhere in the bible is the state of Illinois mentioned. Not once.

Sun-Times, which reported that at least 79 current or former Illinois, Chicago or Cook County elected officials had been found guilty of a crime by judges, juries or their own pleas since 1972. The paper provided this tally of the tarnished: three governors, two other state officials, 15 state legislators, two congressmen, one mayor, three other city officials, 27 aldermen, 19 Cook County judges and seven other Cook County officials.

Barak Obama has only been accused of criminal activity, as in the purchase of his house with help from his friend Tony Rezko (currently incarcerated for real estate fraud, bribery) who purchased a adjacent lot on part of the land on which Obama's house was placed. Rezko purchased the land for more than the asking price on the same day Barak purchased his house from the same seller for less than the asking price. You can read the details here.


Tony Rezko is the one who is in prison, not Barack Obama.

Well, I’m out of time. I just think it’s ridiculous to imagine that Obama is intentionally trying to destroy the Earth. It’s obvious that his heart is in the right place.

I think we should all just kick back and relax and let some of the experts that Obama has working for him sort out the mess that Bush left him in this incredibly complex world where there are only shades of grey.

Who better to sort out this mess but the entire Bush Pentagon, which Obama has cleverly kept on?

Recently Glen Beck has attacked several Obama appointees and they have resigned without protest from Obama. I don’t think the Anti-Christ would be afraid of Glen Beck.

Do you?

Case Closed

(I know many of you will join me in this spirited debate about the true nature of Obama. I look forward to your comments, suggestions and criticisms. But I warn you. I have the facts on my side).

Albert M. Giordano shown with a monkey on his back.

In an E-mail addressed to me, Albert Giordano of Narco News, stated the reason I was "banned" from posting comments on Narco News, his website, was among other things making libelous comments about Markos Moulitsas and predicting that the coup in Honduras would not be declared a coup officially by the United States. An official declaration of a coup cuts of almost all aid to any nation the United States gives aid to.

I wrote to Narco News predicting that unnamed officials who were reporting that the U.S. State Department were about to cut off funds were either trying to keep those opposed to the coup off balance, or, a single member of the State Department was trying to pressure Hilliary Clinton into declaring it a coup. In any case I assured Al Giordano that the U.S would not ever declare this an offical coup, that Manuel Zelaya would not return before the elections, that elections would be held and the U.S would support their hand picked sucessor to Zelaya.

How do I know all this? I read it in the news. It's called historical precedent. It's a pattern of U.S. activity all over the world. Currenly they want Karzai out. So you are hearing about fraudulent elections. The news all comes from the government and it's intention is to confuse (keep you off balance) or manipulate the emotional sensibilities of whoever is listening.

You would think Giordano would be at least a little bit skeptical, instead of blindly following the bait set for him by "unnamed sources" as if they were the word of God.

Giordano who was reporting from Honduras, claimed wrongly that it had been declared a coup officially by the United States.

Today Narco News has a column by Bill Conroy asking why the coup has not been declared officially by the United States, as a coup.


If the head of Narco News doesn't understand that the United States has not declared officially that there was a coup in Honduras, while he (Al Giordano) is in Honduras reporting on the events there, why is Al Giordano even writing for Narco News? Why is he teaching "journalism". Why is he asking people to pay money to attend his "journalism school" in Mexico. And why is he soliciting donations for Narco News?

He doesn't seem to know what's going on.


Narco News purports to report on the Drug war and Democracy in all of America. Bill Conroy among others are reporters there who appear to me to be serious people.

Albert M. Giordano appears to me to be a person with a monkey on his back. He appears (to what I imagine are my perceptive eyes) to be a substance abuser of some kind, a bit of a low life con man (nothing serious) and I'll bet his fellow writers think of him as somewhat of a "little Hitler".

He seems to generate income from a set up called the "The Fund for Authentic Journalism". He asks for contributions to keep Narco News running. Narco News often has very serious articles that are informative and sometimes, in my opinion they are disinformational.

I imagine Albert M. Giordano to be a person who spends a lot of time doing his authentic research in journalism in bars in Latin American countries talking to people he imagines are intellectual. These conversations with authors and University graduates leave him with the erroneous feeling that he is somehow validated in what he imagines he is doing. And he leaves there believing he must "know something for sure, now."

But that's just my imagination.

Mr. Giordano was born in the Bronx. But it doesn’t appear he grew up there. He went to High School in Mamaroneck New York. Mamaroneck is about 90 Percent white and parts of it are very wealthy. Currently Tim Geithner’s daughter is president of the high school student body there.

Is it just a coincidence that Markos Moulitsas also claimed to have “come to this country in 1980”, when in fact he had always been an American citizen having been born in the Chicago area? Or is this the typical pattern of rich kids who never really worked as laborers claiming humble beginnings?

Well, maybe it's just my imagination. And my imagination is not factually based.

Al Giordano stated a host of observably factually inaccurate comments on Honduras and on Marcos Moulitsas.

Albert M. Giordano has declared Marcos Moulitsas the "Saul Alinsky of our Time" or some such thing.

And here he touts Markos Moulitsas Book


And once again he touts Daily Kos


Apparently Narco News sees Daily Kos as a source of revenue with it's broad audience of potential donors.

One of his factually inaccurate comments was that Marcos Moulitsas applied to the CIA years before he started Daily Kos. This is contradicted by Markos Moulitsas who is recorded as saying that he talked to the CIA about his website and that he decided in 2003 not to join the CIA, but instead join the Dean campaign. His website began prior to 2003.

But more importantly he ridiculed my statement that the United States would never declare a coup in Honduras or stop the flow of money or so called "aid".

My reason for stating the U.S. would never declare a coup is that I believe the United States supports and was involved in the coup itself while claiming not to have been.

Today of course, Bill Conroy of Narco News reported on his investigation as to whether Honduras was still receiving aid and questioned why the overthrow of the Honduran government had still, not been declared officially, a coup by the United States.


I can only wonder what Albert M. Giordano is thinking after he stated that the U.S. had decided to declare the overthrow a coup and that all aid had been stopped as of August 28th, the day that Al Giordano mistakenly claimed was the day the U.S. declared the Honduras coup, offically a coup and stopped all aid.

Doesn't make any sense.

Narco News highlights the activities of the CIA in Latin America. You have to wonder why such a close connection with Daily Kos and it's CIA connected leader Markos Moulitsas. Now I'm not implying that Moulitsas is a CIA plant. I don't think he is. But I would not be surprised if he has, after applying to the CIA, cooperated with them on any number of requests. And how bizzarre is it that Al Giordano would trumpet this CIA influenced person, Markos Moulitsas from a website that is filled with reports of CIA past activities in Latin America?

Here is the full text of his email to me sent on August 28th when he claimed on that day the U.S declared officially declared the in Honduras official and cut off aid. . This was a response to my email to sent to Bill Conroy, to Bill Conroy's email address.

"Comments that are defamatory and libelous don't get approved, as is clearly disclosed above the comment submission box. Your malicious claims of Markos Moulitsas being "deeply involved with the CIA while running Daily Kos" - based only on his own admission that in the years before launching that web site he considered working for the agency - make you a kook and sleaze ball of the first order.

I also laughed out loud at your self-aggrandizing claim of having been right about how the Honduras situation played out "because (sic) it will never be declared a coup" on the very day that Washington decided to legally declare it a military coup, as widely revealed yesterday. You may wish to better inform yourself so you don't continue to embarrass yourself so much in the future:


You have zero grasp of the facts in Honduras (I'm typing from there right now - we do real reporting so we don't have to invent fictions) so you just make them up to fit your bitter prejudices and bigotries. While you may yet learn how to write a comment worthy of submission to our fact-based newspaper, here's a clue: malicious untruths don't get past the goalie here. Sell your COINTELPRO style sleaze to someone else. It's people like you that do the work of the CIA unwittingly by spreading untrue smears about others. You can take your false claims and shove them where the sun don't shine."

Al Giordano


---So today Narco News prints a report saying that Honduras is still receiving aide by a real reporter, Bill Conroy who I have been unable to contact because Albert M Giordano intercepts all Emails to Bill Conroy and edits them. Preventing him from communicating with people like myself who apparently DO understand something about the situation in Honduras from the American side.

Here's my email to Bill Conroy, which was apparently intercepted and never seen by Bill Conroy.

I think Iv¹e been banned from writing comments. I just wrote one and it keeps coming back ...comment field required. I don¹t care.... I "m not a fan of Al Giordano...not when he supports Obama and Markos Moulitsas....

I predicted accurately all the events that have transpired since the coup.

Here¹s the comment rewritten ...I don¹t have time to do a better job.

I tried to explain to Giordano that when he said the U.S. Stopped
aid...that that was a ruse. The aide will never stop because it will never be declared a coup because the U.S. initiated the coup with elements in Honduras who wanted it as well.. This is not complex stuff...it¹s a simple pattern....it¹s been done before...if you can¹t recognize patterns...you shouldn¹t be an
Investigator...that¹s what I¹ve said to Giordano...oh well.

I just wrote a comment and accidentally erased it...sorry I don't have time to rewrite it.... Why won't Al Giordano condemn the Obama administration for it's involvement in the overthrow. Why does he blame Hilleary alone?

Why does he support Markos Moulitsas who has been deeply involved with the CIA while running Daily Kos....those are Moulitsas words.

(Bill Conroy...you ought to investigate Markos Moulitsas ...I think it would be far more revealing that just an uncovering of CIA involvement in Blogdom)


Giordano in another e-mail says
"you're such a fuck-up that you sabotage everything you claim to be for. Now, go back to whatever human garbage dump you slithered out of andgive your attention to someone who wants it. You will not get any more response from me. Your attention is unwanted here."

I'm not a journalist, I don't want to be a journalist. I don't want to spend that kind of time on blogs pretending to be one and editing everything to perfection. I'm not interested that much in spelling. That's what most journalists like Al Giordano know how to do.


It ends there.

Obama Prepares for War in Central and South America.


The United States has decided to send U.S. Troops and contractors to 7 military bases in Columbia to fight FARC and other groups.

Venezuelan Ambassador to OAS Roy Matos: “Wherever bases have been established, or were established, that belong to the powerhouse of the world, the military powerhouse, the economic one, the cultural one, etc., etc., the winds that have followed by the winds of war. In Vietnam, they began with a few little bases and small groups of advisers. That’s how they are going to begin now with these seven bases.”

From El Tiempo

"Si me preguntas si las misiones que van a aprovecharse de este acuerdo en el futuro van a incorporar a las Farc en su zonas de blanco, la respuesta es sí, sin duda alguna."



Ambassador to Columbia, William Brownfield (a Bush Appointee from Texas seen here with a very revealing steeley eyed grin) answers questions in an interview with Columbia's El Tiempo regarding combined U.S. Columbian military missions against "drug trafficking ". The question presented is will American troops actually be involved in fighting (and presumably being killed ) on Columbian soil...

The literal translation of the above quote from El Tiempo is the following:

"If you are asking me if the (combined U.S./Columbian) missions they are going to approve of in the agreement (between the U.S. and Columbia) are going to incorporate FARC as target, my answer is yes, without a any doubt."

That means, that without any doubt U.S. troops will be fighting in the jungles, cities and mountains of Columbia. Just as they are doing all over the Mid East with their Columbian partners. Just as they do in Iraq and Afghanistan with their Afghan and Iraqi partners. U.S. soldiers will be killed and injured fighting people whose ideology is in opposition to American ideas under the rubric of terror and drugs.

FARC is a revolutionary group with a communist ideology. They actually control large regions of Columbia and are a provider of social services in those areas. There is no mention of the other groups in Columbia which are involved in drug trafficking that the U.S will be fighting.

FARC may very well become the designated Al Queda of the North American continent. Perhaps even designated more dangerous as their access to the United States will be much easier.

This is a description from the Council of Foreign Relations.


Colombia, one of the closest U.S. allies in Latin America, has been ravaged for decades by a civil war pitting left-wing guerrilla groups against right-wing paramilitary organizations. The two predominant rebel groups--the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (known by its Spanish acronym, FARC) and the National Liberation Army (ELN)--are included on the U.S. State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations. Under Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, who took office in 2002 and has been boosted by large inflows of U.S. funding, both groups have been depleted in numbers and resources. Yet peace talks between each group and the government remain dogged by difficulties. Allegations in March 2008 and August 2009 by the Colombian government that the FARC is receiving support from the Venezuelan government have further complicated prospects for peace.

Here we hear the familiar pattern of the United States accusing other nations of interfering the it's interference in the foreign affairs of other nations. In Vietnam it was the Russians and Chinese, in Iraq it is the Iranians and in South and Central America it will be Columbia's immediate neighbor, Venezuela.

The question may soon be asked:
"How long can we allow Venezuela to keep sending arms to FARC rebels who use those arms to kill American troops?"

Not only are U.S. troops being sent to Columbia to co-occupy existing Columbian Military and Naval bases, but so are "private contractors". The number of troops is not clearly defined, and neither are how many private contractors who will be involved.

In Iraq the number of private contractors is roughly equal to or exceeds the number of troops.

The Obama administration has already been supportive and involved in the coup in Honduras while claiming to be in opposition to it. Hilliary Clinton's lawyer is spokesman for the Coup leaders and Hilliary Clinton is a chair person to MCC a corporation that flooded money to the coup leaders prior to the coup.


Clearly, the U.S. is actively trying to destroy the mild movement to the "left" ( toward mild socialism) that has occurred in parts of Central and South America. In Argentina, Brazil and Chile the movement to the left has been very mild and is hardly radical at all. In Ecuador, the president has asked the U.S. to leave from it's military base. Equador uses the American dollar as it's currency and is hardly an enemy to the U.S.

But Obama is declaring war against Nicaruaga, Honduras, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia.

And drugs will be used as the excuse.

The next big frontier of the American Military machine and it's supporters on the "left" and right will be South and Central America.

THE END...Really is Near


The purpose of a world leader is to confuse those who they lead. All world leaders seek to deceive. To keep others “down”. There are few exceptions. That’s human history and you can look it up.

Human history is the history of small groups of not very bright people who are acquisitive, aggressive and controlling, placing themselves through deception and guile into positions of power over others. They blearily attempt to dummy down everyone around them and in the process actually make themselves even less capable of acting intelligently.

One of the great problems with world leaders is that they begin to believe their own lies as their lies filter through to the public and come back at them in the form of affirmation. They institute studies which are contracted to prove their lies are true. The world leaders become confused. They seek to even further confuse the population. As they do, they further confuse themselves.

There is no health care bill…it s a ruse. The intention of the leaders is to develop a bill through confusing the public that will enhance the profits of the insurance companies almost exclusively.

The bailout was a ruse to simply engorge the insurance and financial “industries”. It was not a bailout of the economy, rather a simple payoff to influential reckless gamblers who control the government and who lost their bets. They have succeeded in dummying down the public into accepting the theft of the public money. But to what end? In the end, the financial industries are destroyed. And they are destroyed because the dummying down of the public results in commercial dysfunction. And that dysfunction of public commercial capacity results in financial chaos. By stealing the public's money they make the public poor. The public stops buying. Everybody loses because the public and world leadership are “confused”.

There is no Al Queda, or danger from the “Taliban”. It’s a ruse used to enhance the profits of defense and defense related industry and industry in general. It also serves to justify the unwarranted paranoia of the leaders themselves who feel threatened that someone, somewhere is going to try to take whatever they have acquired, away from them.

Barak Obama is not a liberal. He’s a conservative Republican on his best day.

A conservative Republican in these times is a person who promotes the exportation of deathly American fascism by military means and the development of “friendly” fascism domestically. That domestic fascism turns deadly upon the slightest sign of resistance. We have seen no resistance toward corporate control. The corporations are using the “government” as a foil to direct the public’s (confused) anger. The anger is directed toward government. In this way the government has become denuded of agencies that serve the public. It is now almost entirely privatized. Privatized government serves the private corporate industry. [Lockheed Martin literally runs the Social Security Administration. http://www.lockheedmartin.com/news/press_releases/1998/LockheedMartinWinsSocialSecurityAdm.html]

Even the CIA is being privatized by Blackwater through “contracts”. Contracts to kill, between Blackwater and the CIA are now commonplace.

Public Opinion has no impact on the “leaders”. They aren’t interested in whether people are for or against the war, healthcare, immigration, stimulus packages, torture or any other subject. You as an individual are seen as utterly powerless and held in contempt by your leaders. You are nothing more than an object. An object that is molded through advertising and propaganda to respond in a way that benefits corporate growth through the agents of corporate growth, the politicians and government that you only imagine serves you. The government, which you have “voted” for.

This is not a democracy, this is a fascist state controlled by corporations. You are nothing.

America is not fighting terrorism. It is a terrorist state. It is using terror all over Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan and now Central and South America. American service people have through accident, published only a small sample of the videos and photos illustrating American terrorism and torture in the Mideast and elsewhere.

Torture is now something that is so loudly debated that it drowns out the muffled screams of the men, women and children who are actually being tortured by American terrorists. [And it is still happening. http://www.democracynow.org/2009/5/19/jeremy_scahill_little_known_military_thug]

President Obama has a decent chance at being re-elected. Because many of YOU will be manipulated in a timely fashion before the election by the conservative press, the liberal press and your friends and family to vote once again for the alleged “lesser of two evils”. The ground is shifting beneath your feet like a fast moving tectonic plate so that it carries you from the left to the right without your being aware of a change in perspective. And without realizing it, you vote for fascism lite, imagining that you are “liberal”. You are not a liberal. If you vote for a Republican or a Democrat you are unassuming fascist in almost every case. You are at least deeply conservative. A vote for Obama is a vote for fascism. I don’t think that’s hyperbole or exaggeration. It’s the everyday news.

Many of you may have voted for continued war, theft by corporations of your own money and a reduction of the benefits that the government offers you in the form of “health care” and social security. You voted for Obama. You have no excuses anymore. You express disappointment or anger at Obama for reneging on “campaign promises’. As long as you are disappointed, or angry you will be a tool for those who manipulate you. If you feel disappointment or anger it is a sign that you still believe in the system. You disappointment and anger reveal that you believe that some world leaders may still have your best interests at heart while they deal with the “complexities” and pressures they face from a variety of sources.

You may believe they are doing the “best they can” in a “complex world that is filled with grey areas”. You may be the one who is grey.

The world is clear and colorful, distinct and obvious. All you have to do is turn your head away from “them”, and look.

World leaders want you to believe that what is simple and obvious is actually clouded and “incredibly complex”. The Afghanistan situation as General McChrystal Clear points out is incredibly complex and it’s best to leave that complexity to your “expert” leaders. They understand the situation in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan even though not one of them can even speak the language of these countries to any degree even remotely functional. And of course they never speak to any Afghans except to pay them off and given them instructions. They live in a self-perpetuating world of self-affirmation. They believe not in reality, but in their own exclusive American prejudices.

The American electoral system is a ruse. It’s fake. There are no elections. Not really. It really is a choice between two identical candidates. If John McCain had been elected there would be almost no difference in our contemporary state of affairs. In fact, “liberals” would be complaining about McCain’s, continuation and expansion of the war, the bailouts, the reduction of Medicare and all the things Obama is currently involved in doing with few exceptions.

The two-candidate system simply offers two different approaches for the same intended goal. That goal or goals are set by the people who control the wealth of the nation. How do we amass more wealth than we currently have? That’s the only issue. That’s the only goal. Who’s the best candidate to do that?

You have the audacity and arrogance to imagine that you as an individual or as a public collective force have a say in what these candidates will say or do. Possibly in what they say, not what they do.

Social Security will be drastically changed. In effect, it will be eliminated. Medicare will be eliminated. They will be reformed, for the benefit of the wealthy. In fact Medicare is being eliminated as we speak.

Now, the biggest thing of all, is that the world is probably going to end as we know it in the next few years. They will be a nuclear event or events. And it will be as a result of, and mostly attributed to the United States.

How stupid do you have to be to not see where this is all headed? If you can’t see the obvious, it’s because you don’t want to look at it, straight on.

Nuclear weapons were developed with an intention. That intention is that they be used. The desire for their use by those who created them is a desire for self-destruction. The builder of the weapon dies along with the weapon. That was obvious to those who understood what the power of the weapon was and what it would become.

A large part of humanity wants to die. You need to understand what that means and what’s implied by it. That death wish isn’t a figment of someone’s imagination. It’s a living, breathing cultural force that gives movement to the development of these weapons and their eventual use. They didn’t make them so they could just sit in silos. There is a force, a dynamic cultural force that wants them to be ignited and used.

On another distant planet, where relatively sane beings exist, the thought of building a weapon that would destroy the builder would seem obviously absurd.

Christians and Muslims all speak of the advantages of the afterlife. Judaism, Christianity and Islam have evolved from the same root and predict the end of the world through fire and Christianity and Islam express a desire for that End. It’s utter madness. It doesn’t make sense. That’s what madness is. It’s acting without any sense. Not just logical sense, just common sense, visceral sense. These religions are more primitive, much more primitive than Stone Age worshippers of the Sun and Moon. They are Devolutionary Religions. As technology advances religions devolve.

The United States is a disturbed nation psychologically. This disturbed environment of mixed messages, manipulation, deceit and benevolent corruption affects everyone.

No one escapes being affected when living inside a diseased culture. Not the rich, the poor, the liberal or the conservative not you or I.

If you think that people who say, “The end is near!” are crazy, you may be right.
But I’m going to tell you that THE END REALLY IS NEAR!

There is no other possible avenue for humanity. It’s braced for self-destruction. It’s building the platforms for self destruction that will implode right under our feet and no one is noticing. There is only distraction. There is no focus or attention on the obvious calamity of that awaits us all in the culmination of all human history and it's layers of deceit and confusion as expressed in the use of Nuclear weapons. of affirmation. They institute studies which are contracted to prove their lies are true. The world leaders become confused. They seek to even further confuse the population. As they do, they further confuse themselves.

Is The U.S. Military Planting Explosives in Iraqi Market Places?

Why is it that as soon as Barak Obama announces a withdrawal of troops in Iraq that bombings that were once rare or at least not reported suddenly become more frequent or high profile?

Is it possible that members of the U.S. Military are behind the attacks?

Is it possible that General Petraeus is allowing, or encouraging through Iraqi channels for these attacks to occur?

Is it possible that General Petraues, who is said to have political ambitions (meaning for the presidency) is attempting to undermine Obama though instigating or giving the green light in some way, to these attacks?

Don't you think it odd the attacks began on the day of the announced troop withdrawal?

Is it possible that Generals don't always do what they are told? Is it possible that some Generals and Lt. Colonels in Iraq are entirely corrupt and have stolen millions of dollars and sent it back to the United States?

Seymour Hersh thinks it is.

The idea of the U.S. planting expolsives in market places should not be shocking. The British have been caught red handed doing just that. This is one of the ways the U.S. created the rift between Sunnis and Shiites. This rift did not exist to the extent advertised by the U.S. press prior to the war. Intermarriage was common between Sunnis and Shiites. This is confirmed by Iraqi's including Riverbend.

Here's an article exposing the British in Iraq and their attempts to plant explosives and the ensuing chaos that resulted from their arrest by Iraqi authorities who found bombs in their cars.


In an interview with Al Jazeerah TV [4], the popular Iraqi leader Fattah al-Sheikh, a member of the Iraqi National Assembly and deputy official in the Basra governorate, said that police had “caught two non-Iraqis, who seem to be Britons and were in a car of the Cressida type. It was a booby-trapped car laden with ammunition and was meant to explode in the centre of the city of Basra in the popular market.”........No wonder the Iraqi authorities were annoyed. Two British SAS soldiers had been caught undercover dressed as Arabs, loaded with explosives and anti-tank weaponry [5], acting uncooperatively at a routine checkpoint, and opening fire on police when approached. This is hardly a mistaken case of ‘friendly fire.’ The undercover operatives had conducted themselves suspiciously and aggressively. When it became clear that the British Army was about to use overwhelming force to rescue the operatives, it is hardly surprising that Iraqi police were reluctant to give them up, preferring to interrogate them to find out precisely what they had been doing.

General Petraues seems to have been involved in some deeply disturbing arms deals prior to being proclaimed a national "hero" for his surge "idea". He may have been directly involved in the murder of Dale Stoeffel who wrote a letter to Petraeus just prior to his murder stating that Stoeffel and Petraeus could wind up in jail for the way they had conducted business in arms sales.


The Petraeus surge idea is merely the paying off of Sunni rebels to hold off the fighting. When the cash stops, the fighting presumably resumes.

Just who is General Petraeus?

General Petraeus was appointed, annointed by George Bush and especially Dick Cheney.

Ricks, who interviewed Petraeus about the meeting, writes that Obama's remarks "likely insulted Petraeus, who justly prides himself on his ability to do just that..." That strongly implies that Petraeus expressed some irritation at Obama over the incident to Ricks.

On top of the interest of Petraeus and other senior officers in keeping U.S. troops in Iraq for as long as possible, Petraeus has personal political interests at stake in the struggle over Iraq policy. He has been widely regarded as a possible Republican Presidential candidate in 2012.

Petraeus evidently believed the White House was promoting a story that made him look like the loser at the Jan. 21 meeting. "I imagine the White House is not too happy that this information is out there," said the military source, referring to the Petraeus account he had provided to IPS.

And Dick Cheney who apparently headed the office of executive assassination in the Whitehouse appointed Petraeus.

Ever since he began working on the troop surge, Keane has been the central figure manipulating policy in order to keep as many U.S. troops in Iraq as possible. It was Keane who got Vice President Dick Cheney to push for Petraeus as top commander in Iraq in late 2006 when the existing commander, Gen. George W. Casey, did not support the troop surge.

General Petaeus has openly declared his interest in running for President. He is blamed by Sabah Khadim, then a senior adviser at Iraq's Interior Ministry for the theft of the entire Iraqi arms budget.


For a soldier whose military abilities and experience are so lauded by the White House, General Petraeus has had a surprisingly controversial career in Iraq. His critics hold him at least partly responsible for three debacles: the capture of Mosul by the insurgents in 2004; the failure to train an effective Iraqi army and the theft of the entire Iraqi arms procurement budget in 2004-05.

The American Economy is About to Collapse Forever

The problem with the economists like Tim Geithner and others is they imagine they have insight into the psychology of how people think and feel and what motivates them. These people around Obama are not the brightest minds. They are average minds.

They do not understand what motivates human beings. They simply imagine that they do.

The idea of "stimulating" the economy will not work.

The simplistic and foolish idea of Bush and Obama that by creating essentially a Ponzi scheme by giving the banks the appearance of having money through borrowing, money the government has already borrowed from other sources and then giving that money to banks is simply an exercize in pretending. They are Pretending that banks have money. Then consumers pretend they have money, I suppose. That is precisely what the situation was before the current "crisis" occurred. They are essientially trying to re-create the same situation that occurred prior to, and leading up to, the "crisis".

Furthermore, we are to pretend that those banks that have borrowed money (money they don't really have) will have an effect on the psychology of the consumer by stimulating and inspiring the consumer to spend and borrow money.

Now. What's the consumer actually feeling?


Terror is the effect that the governments of Bush and Obama are promoting. They are saying one the one hand that there is a crisis that could cause the permanent loss of whatever wealth the consumer has and then on the other hand offering the consumer hope by betting that the sick dying economy will be revived by ingesting it with all the value in terms of wealth that the consumer has. That's called borrowing money from the public. It's not borrowing. It's gambling the consumer’s assets in hopes that the value of the consumer's assets will have more value in the future.


It's taking a dying, sick patient and trying to revive it by using ALL THE IRREPLACEABLE RESOURCES available to the community for one individual.

If the patient does not survive ALL THE RESOURCES of the commmunity are lost forever. And everyone else will become sick too because all your energetic resources have been used up and there is no energy to develop new resources.

Instead of allowing the patient to die and accepting the injury to the community that the patients death will produce, they have decided in error, to gamble everything on the remote possibility that the sick patient will get well (having never been cured from the sickness) by simply infusing the sick patient with stimulants which will give the patient the appearance of being "active" and this will somehow cause the sick patient to somehow, miraculously recover over a long period of time through forced stimulation, when in fact, what is called for is an operation to remove the cancer.

Rather than cure or at least address the patient's Illness, they prefer to make the patient look as if it's not ill.

You don't have to be an economist to know that's not sensible.
Nothing the government of the United States does any more is sensible. It's self destructive. America engages in meaningless wars that never needed to be fought, in Iraq for example. Instead of leaving they remain there after finding out they had no reason to be there in the first place, and finding that out 7 years ago.

The Stimulus packages are nothing more than an amphetamine to the economy, giving it the appearance of being well when in fact it is starving.

They want to stimulate the economy; they are not trying to make it run well. They want the economy to "look" good. By looking good, it will eventually, through it's appealing good looks, function.

This is an absurdity.

They are in fact frightening the whole world into a depression, which apparently will result in world chaos.

(Americans can't believe it could happen. Jesus would not allow such a thing...not in OUR life times.

That chaos means that governments will topple, revolutions will breed more revolutions and the inevitable result is destruction of human life, as we now know it.

This is very serious.

I am not an economist. But I believe I have common sense. And this stimulus package is not in keeping with common sense. It's wild gambling that has no logic behind it.

Too many economists imagine that money and all the things they imagine that money means motivate human behavior.

They are out of their depth.

And the proof is that they are scaring people out of their minds with what they have done so far. And that assures economic destruction.

And that fear is totally destructive to "stimulation". When people are afraid, they don't look for stimulation. They run from stimulation. They hide. They slow down. They become sedated, sedentary. They become DEPRESSED. They minimize their movements, they move slowly, deliberately.

The origin of depression and the reason people (and many other living things) feel "depression" is because it is like all emotions, a "survival mechanism". It lowers the profile. It is one way that all organisms deal with danger. They SLOW DOWN. They make themselves less of a target to predators. Today in our artificial world of make believe and misunderstanding, when we feel "depressed" we usually avoid people as we "don't want to get hurt".

There are other ways living things deal with danger. Anger is another way of dealing with danger. But when the circumstances are overwhelming and the organism cannot understand what is happening to it, or where the danger is coming from, it depresses itself. Your less of a target when you are depressed and you conserve valuable energy in a chaotic situation.

When the danger is identified clearly, some organisms come out of the depression and ATTACK the danger.

Back to the Economy:

If the economy were "stimulated" it wouldn't stop the economy from being SICK, would it? It would merely give the sick economy the appearance of being healthy. And that wouldn't last too long.

The economies of the world are in the process of total collapse. Nothing is going to stop it, because the people trying to stop it are actually causing it to collapse at a faster pace and they are using all the resources that could be used AFTER a collapse, NOW.

And that means after the collapse, there won't be anything to fall back on. All the resources will have all been used up.

The economists of Bush and Obama are treating this economic "problem" as if it were a psychological, rather than a economic problem that has to do with regulation, war and conservation.
