One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

Do you think that America is a Democracy? If so, think again. The people ruling us have torn up the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in favor of the super rich and to the detriment of the poor. And if that were not bad enough, the insane neocons running our country are pushing for a nuclear war with Russia.
Before the West spreads democracy abroad maybe it could get some for
itself. The US is an oligarchy in which government is answerable to six
powerful private interest groups. In Europe governments are answerable
to the EU, Washington, and private bankers and not to their peoples. In
the UK the military brass has declared its hold on the reins of power.
Jeremy Corbyn is the first Labourite to lead the Labour Party in a
long time. Considering the stupidity and immorality of the Tories,
Corbyn could become prime minister of Britain. Should this occur, Corbyn
would shift the budget priorities away from supporting Washington’s
wars toward refurbishing the social welfare state that made life for
ordinary Britishers more secure and less stressful.
A senior serving general of the British army said that the army would
not allow the people to “put a maverick in charge of the country’s
security. The Army just wouldn’t stand for it and would use whatever
means possible, fair or foul, to prevent that.”
In other words, a democratic outcome unacceptable to the English military will be overthrown. Just like in Egypt.
Here we have the incongruity of Washington and London bringing
democracy to others through what Vladimir Putin calls “airstrike
democracy,” while tolerating a democracy deficit themselves. The safest
conclusion is that democracy is a cloak for an aggressive agenda, not a
value in itself to the US and UK elites, who rule and who intend to
continue to rule these countries for their personal benefit.
As far as I can tell, not only has democracy departed the Western
world, but also compassion, empathy for others, morality, integrity,
respect for truth, justice, faithfulness, and self-respect. Western
civilization has become a hollow shell. There is nothing left but greed
and coercion and the threat of coercion. When I read—hopefully
incorrect reports—that Russia’s President Putin desires to be a partner
of the West, I wonder why such a powerful country, which has emerged
into light out of darkness, wants to be Satan’s partner. I assume that
the reports are untrue or that Putin is acting in the interest of
humankind to defuse the dangerous situation created by Washington and
its NATO sock puppets.
Russia should not forget the courageous speech that Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez gave to the UN on September 20, 2006. Standing at
the podium, Chavez said that on the previous day George W. Bush stood
here, “Satan himself, speaking as if he owned the world. You can still
smell the sulfur.” The purpose of America, Chavez said, is “to preserve
the pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of
Chavez’s words were too much truth for US politicians. Nancy Pelosi,
the multimillionaire Speaker of the US House of Representatives, said
that such a speech was to be expected from an “everyday thug.”
Elsewhere the response was different. Rafael Correa, currently
President of Ecuador, said that Chavez had insulted Satan, because
although Satan is evil like Washington, he is al least intelligent, and
Washington is completely stupid.
The Western World is on its last legs. Unemployment is horrendous
for European and American youth—primarily for the educated. Young
American women, driven by student debt, advertise on Internet sites for
“sugar daddies” to whom they will supply sex for financial support. The
easy answer—“education is the solution”— is a lie. Ph.Ds cannot get
jobs, because university budgets are cut in order to save money for wars
and bank bailouts and 75% of the remaining budget is used by
administrations to pay themselves large salaries and perks. NYU, for
example, provides its higher administrative personnel with expensive
summer homes. University presidents in America have multimillion dollar
incomes, while the students drown in debt.
The Wall Street Mentality—unlimited Greed—has taken over American
life, and this greed has been exported to Europe, which had achieved a
sharing relationship between labor and capital. Today Europe, like the
US, is an opportunity wasteland for the young. Greece has been
sacrificed for the private bankers, and Italy, Spain, and Portugal are
waiting in the wings. In the place of independent European countries, a
fascist centralized authority is rising.
As millions of refugees from Washington and its NATO enablers’ wars seek refuge in Europe, budgets for social welfare are further pressed.
In recent years we have witnessed that private bankers acting through
the EU were able to appoint the governments of the allegedly democratic
governments of Greece and Italy.
In the Western World the aristocracy of wealth is being
re-established. If Russia and China join this “partnership,” then
billions of peoples will be ruled by a handful of mega-rich elites.
The world is on the knife edge. The West is lost. Russia and China
could go down with the West, because both Russia and China suffered
tyranny and look to the West for the paths to freedom and liberty. But
Western paths lead to “domination, exploitation and pillage of the
peoples of the world.”
Will Russia and China participate in the pillage, or will they resist it, standing firm for humanity?
