Surprise! OKC bombing video tapes appear to have been edited!

Incredible coincidence: 4 video tapes are blank at the same space in time!

With every passing day, it is becoming more clear that a secret faction of our government in Washington DC, a government which ostensibly claims to represent the average American citizen, has its own agenda controlled by a select group of people behind the glare of the media spotlight, people whose main preoccupation seems to be the continued manipulation of the American psyche for the purpose of increasing their power over the rest of us.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the ongoing cover-up of their crimes against the Constitution and the People of the United States now revealed by their tampering with video taped evidence regarding the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

The latest example of their sanitization of history revolves around the reluctant government release of 4 separate video tapes taken from four cameras facing the Murrah Federal Building on the morning of the Oklahoma City bombing -- April 19, 1995. The random odds against 4 video tapes from four separate cameras going blank at the same moment right before the bomb/s explode, and then recording the immediate aftermath, are astronomical. But you be the judge.

Most of us clearly remember the day when the entire front of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City collapsed after being bombed, killing 168 men, women and children in 1995.

Timothy McVeigh was convicted and executed for the bombing, which he reputedly accomplished by parking a truck filled with an ammonium-nitrate fertilizer bomb in front of the building. Terry Nichols was convicted of conspiracy, along with McVeigh, and is currently serving a life sentence for this crime.

But from the beginning of that sad day in American history, it became obvious that all was not quite what it seemed, or at least, not quite what the authorities wanted us to think.

First, although the Murrah Building provided the offices for the local arm of the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) not one single uniformed or badge carrying BATF employee was killed or injured that day. That is because not one of them was in their office at the time of the explosion/s.

Then there were the live television news broadcasts by local Oklahoma City TV stations, fortunately preserved on video tape and still available on YouTube, showing the OKC police bomb squad reacting to the bombing by running into the building and finding two more UNEXPLODED BOMBS that were quickly carted off the scene, to be discarded, apparently, down the “memory hole” George Orwell created in 1984, as these two bombs have completely disappeared from our surface world, despite the obvious breach of the well-established “custodial chain of evidence” one would think would exist for them.

Later, we learned something more disturbing during an analysis of the bombing and collapse of the front of the Murrah Building noted by Brigadier General Benton K. Partin, former commander of the Air Force Armament Technology Laboratory, a man whose 25 year career specialty was demolition and explosives.

General Partin stated outright that if someone had parked the Queen Mary across the street from the Murrah Building and filled it with similar ammonia based explosives, it could not account for the collapse of the building nor the damage done to cause the building to collapse. In other words, the Murrah Building would still be standing; and most of the people killed in the bombing and collapse would still be living.

In a statement released to the news media, Brigadier General Partin continued:"When I first saw the picture of the truck bomb’s asymmetrical damage to the Federal building in Oklahoma, my immediate reaction was that the pattern of damage would have been technically impossible without supplementary demolition charges at some of the reinforced concrete bases inside the building, a standard demolition technique."

Partin also said that "...reinforced concrete targets in large buildings are hard targets to blast. I know of no way possible to reproduce the apparent building damage through simply a truck bomb effort."

According to General Partin, the only way the Murrah Building could have collapsed was if the concrete re-enforced columns at the front of the building had been cut by explosive charges placed at their base.

Of course, we all remember the story of how our intrepid FBI found the Ryder truck that had been used in the bombing by tracking back the VIN (vehicle identification number) stamped on the rear axle of the truck that had been found 3 blocks away, thereby linking the rental of the truck to Timothy McVeigh.

Unfortunately, there are two problems with this widely distributed story: one is that VIN numbers are NOT STAMPED on these axles, only a part number; and two, a part number could not possibly have led the FBI back to this specific Ryder truck!

And what of the multiple eye witnesses who claim to have seen the OKC bomb squad waiting in the parking lot of the Murrah Building since 6 am that morning?

Apparently, these are serious discrepancies our hidden government would just like us all to forget. Which brings us to the latest revelation in the saga of this secret faction’s black ops against the people of the United States.

Just recently, four separate video tapes shot by cameras facing the front of the Murrah Building on that April morning of 1995 were requested through a FOIA (Freedom of Information) Act. Jesse Trentadue, a Salt Lake City attorney requested them in the ongoing investigation of his brother’s wrongful death while in prison. All four of the video tapes end (and appear to have been edited) precisely around the time of 9:02 AM, which coincidentally, just happened to be the time when the bomb(s) at the Murrah Building exploded.

Now think on this for just one moment. Four different video cameras, at four different locations, all pointed at the front of the Murrah Building, and the tape from each one inexplicably ends just before the explosion(s) begin, and then they all start back up again, right after the explosion(s).

According to Associated Press writer Tim Talley, in a story dated September 27th, 2009, FBI spokesman Gary Johnson in Oklahoma City declined comment, and referred Mr. Talley to his superiors in Washington, who predictably declined comment as well.

The FBI had refused to release these tapes from these security cameras in the past, and only did so now reluctantly to fulfill the FOIA court order initiated by Mr. Trentadue under threat of a lawsuit. All four tapes from the cameras “go blank” at almost precisely the same time on the morning of April 19, 1995, and then, miraculously, they ALL spring back to life right after the bombing(s) occur at approximately 9:02 AM, just in time to show the aftermath.

According to the AP story, “...government officials claim the security cameras did not record the minutes before the bombing because ‘they had run out of tape’ or ‘the tape was being replaced.’”

Now let’s just stop and think about this “official” government explanation from an “official” government source, from an “official” of our government.

We are expected to believe that 4 video tapes from 4 cameras conveniently ran out of video tape at the same time just before the bomb/s at the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City went off. Then, right after this horrific explosion occurs, and amidst the cries, tumult, and partial collapse of the Murrah Building, 4 people in 4 different locations had the mental clarity to remember to change the 4 video tapes of these 4 cameras so that they could continue recording the aftermath of the explosion(s), and all four people changed the video tapes at the same time!!!

Regarding the odds of this unlikely scenario, James Trentadue, the man who initiated the court order for the release of these video tapes, stated: “Four cameras in four different locations going blank at basically the same time on the morning of April 19, 1995. There ain’t no such thing as coincidence.” Trentadue continues: “The real story is what’s missing. The absence of footage from these crucial time intervals is evidence that there is something there that the FBI doesn’t want anybody to see.”

Investigators knowledgeable in the way of our secret government’s black ops can only concur. Now let’s imagine for a moment.... just what might our hidden government not have wanted us to see?

Well, for one thing, they may not have wanted us to see several people place small black bags near the front columns of the Murrah Building just before the ammonium nitrate bomb in Timothy McVeigh’s rental truck blew up. For if we combine the testimony of explosives expert General Benton K. Partin, who stated emphatically that the only way the Murrah Building could have collapsed would have been if someone had planted explosive cutting charges at the base of the building’s exposed structural columns, then such a statement inevitably leads one to think that Timothy McVeigh might have received unanticipated ‘help’ in the destruction of the Murrah Building from an unexpected source -- courtesy of the black ops branch of our Federal Government.

Now combine these missing video tape segments with General Partin’s statements along with the still on-line video taped live broadcasts (see YouTube) of UNEXPLODED BOMBS being removed from the scene by the OKC bomb squad, and one must conclude that the only reason these four tapes from four separate video cameras all went blank at the same time and began to record again at the same time right AFTER the initial blast(s), was because SOMETHING occurred RIGHT BEFORE THE INITIAL BLAST that the minions of the black-ops branch of our government did not want us to see. The ONLY possible conclusion that one could logically draw from the above evidence is that there were OTHER PEOPLE involved in this bombing that our secret government did not want us to know about.

After all, if such an act could be successfully pinned on a gun-toting, militia-loving, right-wing radical nut, then the secret government’s hidden agenda would be well-served by turning public opinion against such a person and such organizations.

Not to be denied, Mr. Trentadue asked for 26 CIA documents under a FOIA directive, only to be turned down by the CIA. Most telling, however, is a letter he received from the “National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.” Or, in other words, one of the U.S. government agency’s whose purview includes watching everything that occurs from above, in outer space, below the field of their cameras.

Few people know it, but these space cameras have such incredible resolution that they can read the printing on a matchbook from orbit. With access to such amazing detail, these space cameras surely could tell us what person/s and vehicles came and went in front of the Murrah Building that fateful day.

Yet more perverse, especially if one does not believe that any element of our government had any involvement in this mass murder, is the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s response to Mr. Trentadue’s logical request. The agency reviewed the documents Mr. Trentadue’s asked to be released to the public and refused, on the grounds that the release of such photos “...could cause grave damage to our national security.”

If that is truly the case, then one must simply ask how and W H Y this could be? Why would the release of photographs from space shot in front of the Murrah Building on the morning of April 19, 1995 cause “grave damage” to our national security? What could such photographs possibly reveal?

After all, we all already "know" that Timothy McVeigh was the only person involved in the bombing, other than Terry Nichols, right? We "know" that Timothy McVeigh admitted to, was convicted of, and was executed for this bombing which killed 168 men, women and children on that day, right? We "know" the building was blown up by the ammonium-nitrate truck bomb planted in front of the building by Timothy McVeigh that day, do we not? So what could there possibly be visible from space cameras looking down upon the Murrah Building that would pose “grave damage” to our National Security on that fateful time and day?

Only this and this alone -- the only possible conclusion a rational mind could reach from this agency’s refusal to release such photographic evidence can only indicate that there were more people involved in this bombing than just Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, and that indeed, as General Benton K. Partin has insisted for years, the only way the Murrah Building could have collapsed and killed 168 people men, women and children was for one or more people to have planted explosive cutting charges at the base of several columns of the building immediately prior to the ammonium-nitrate explosion. They then coordinated the explosion of the cutting charges at the base of the building's structural support columns with the knowledge that McVeigh’s bomb would be blamed for ALL the damage, death and destruction caused by their own bombs nestled against the columns of the Murrah Building.

This blank video “lapse” neatly ties in with Dr. Charles Mankin’s statement. Dr. Mankin, who is the Director of the University of Oklahoma’s Geological Survey, has stated that according to TWO separate seismographs, there were TWO BLASTS which happened that day within 8 seconds of each other. And although the news media reported that there were actually two blasts during the first 24 hours of news coverage, that “fact” conveniently disappeared from both our print media and the air waves after the first 24 hours of the news cycle. No one can say our secret government isn’t swift!

But WHY, the rational mind screams and wonders? Why would anyone associated with our government commit such a heinous, murderous act? One does not have to search far for the answers to these questions.

One is that Bill Clinton’s popularity was at an all-time low just before this bombing; he then became a sympathetic spokesmen for all those killed, raising his public profile and approval rating, while gaining significant side benefits that simply cannot be discounted.

Two: Clinton was able to blame this tragedy and atrocity on militia groups. He and his administration then tarred all militia groups with the brush of being right-wing crazy baby killing maniacs; this attack signaled the end of organized armed militia groups in the U.S.

Three: Clinton was able to blame the creation of the militia groups on right wing talk radio, signaling a vendetta against talk radio that continues to this day from our government.

Four: Within days, Clinton was able to introduce a flurry of domestic terrorism bills to Congress that had been prewritten and preprinted BEFORE the bombing, covering everything from private firearms ownership, to wire taps, to assaults on our First Amendment for “unseemly speculation” revolving around “baseless conspiracy theories” regarding the Federal Government of the United States.
Five: Clinton was able to provide sympathy for the BATF -- an agency that had been in danger of being de-funded before WACO due to constant reports of incredibly abusive behavior and abrogation of citizen’s rights. The BATF had become a “target” of the radical right, according to this plot synopsis, and so Americans felt compelled to support the embattled Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, especially after the "traumatic experience" they had suffered at WACO.

So one can readily see, as disturbing as it is to contemplate, that this bombing and mass murder served an agenda to advance the dismantling of our Bill of Rights and the freedoms Americans enjoy and cherish as citizens of the United States. It certainly was "fortunate" that someone in the "Justice Department" had the "foresight" to have all those freedom eliminating bills written beforehand, just waiting for an event such as this to distribute them to Congress for their votes.

Further, one must further marvel at just how fortunate, how lucky, and how convenient that NONE of the badge carrying BATF personnel and officials were in the Murrah Building at the time of the blast. Not a one!

Now isn’t that a happy coincidence?

And, just like the revelation that 4 separate video cameras facing The Murrah Building ran out of tape at the exact same moment, and then were re-started at the exact same moment minutes later, you do believe in coincidence... don’t you?

The Obamas Taste The Agony of Defeat

The Brass Ring Eludes The Big 'O'

Fresh from yet another failure in Copenhagen, President Barrack Obama arrived back in Washington to deal with the problems he conveniently left hanging when he flew off to Denmark to socialize with the International Olympic Committee in his futile attempt to persuade them to choose Chicago for the 2016 Olympic Games.

The depth of Mr. Obama’s clout with various movers and shakers of the international elite was clearly revealed when Chicago was eliminated from Olympic contention during the very first round of deliberation. Apparently, Mr. Obama’s persuasive abilities, along with those of his wife Michelle and their traveling companions Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan and Chicago's Mayor Richard J. Daley II, failed to carry sufficient weight with the Olympic Committee to persuade them to choose The Windy City as their choice for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Prior to the selection of Rio for the 2016 games, Michelle Obama had made a noteworthy comment regarding the “sacrifices” she was making for the United States on her journey to Denmark, where she spent time discussing what one can only guess at with Queen Margrethe II. Amazing! Her own private jet, Oprah Winfrey as her traveling companion, the world press at her heels, then meeting the Queen of Denmark, and all paid for at taxpayer expense..... the 'sacrifices' Michelle makes for the people of the United States might make one weep!

Critics of this tax payer paid jaunt for naught talked of the cost of sending not just one plane (the President’s 747 jet) but two (Michelle’s), as well as the cost of security and that of their not inconsiderable entourage, to convince the Olympic Committee to grant Chicago this plum prize for which their cronies were no doubt awaiting to juice the sluices of even further civic corruption back in Chi town. But alas, it was not to be.

Despite President Obama’s faded dream of leading the parade of festivities from his Chicago Hyde Park home to the Olympic Stadium in 2016, Mr. Obama is slowly learning that being a political “rock star” as perceived by the general public does not carry the same weight with world leaders, who see thru his tissue thin resume’ and his lack of real world experience, and have judged him accordingly.

Of course, there is no doubt former President Jimmy Carter, if one could ask him, would have a ready answer as to why President Obama failed in his task of securing the 2016 Olympic games for Chicago when dealing with the International Olympic Committee.

Perhaps you already know the reason as well. It’s the reason we will be hearing repeated as a mantra in the coming months and years ahead for every failure of policy and leadership Mr. Obama will endure during his ignominious slide down the toilet bowl of diminishing public approval: it’s racism, pure and simple.

For there can be no other reason anyone would oppose The Great Obama’s vision and silver tongue other than a visceral aversion to his skin color.

Perhaps someone should tell all those prejudiced world leaders that they are only half right.

Conservative Talk Show Hosts Never Question 9/11

Cardboard Cutout “Conservatives” Occupying Our Airwaves
by L C Vincent

Quick!  Name one major conservative radio or television talk show host who questions the official “U.S. Government Conspiracy Theory” about the events of 9/11.  The theory that 19 Arab Hijackers, using box cutters, commandeered 4 passenger jets, slammed two of them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, causing the collapse of THREE of those towers (let’s not forget building #7), and then crashed another jet into the Pentagon, while the passengers on the last plane overpowered the hijackers, causing it to crash into an empty field in Shanksville, PA.  Now quick... name one self-styled “conservative” radio talk show host who has ever expressed even so much as a shadow of doubt about this official government fairy-tale.  You can’t.

The irony is that while talk radio is dominated by supposedly conservative talk show hosts, and Fox News dominates the television ratings with its so-called conservative commentators, not one of them has ever so much as raised an eyebrow regarding the thousands of discrepancies between the government’s prefabricated excuses regarding 9/11 versus the mind-numbing black hole of lies which the “official government” version of 9/11 exposes, along with the bottomless pit of depravity skeptical questioning further reveals.

Try it for yourself.   Stop if you see one name here that has ever done anything other than provide you with a “salute the flag, click your heels, go kill Muslims and Al Qaeda” propositions to their listeners regarding 9/11:

o  Rush Limbaugh
o  Bill O’Reilly
o  Glenn Beck
o  Neil Boortz
o  Jerry Doyle
o  Michael Savage
o  Laura Ingraham
o  Laura Crowley
o  Mark Levine
o  Bob Grant
o  Lars Larson
o  G. Gordon Liddy
o  Phil Hendrie
o  Michael Medved
o  Don Imus
o  Tammy Bruce

In many respects I find this list rather remarkable.

Certainly, these people are not simply of average intelligence; if anything, they are substantially above average.  And certainly, these people’s interests are definitely socio-political; their commentary almost always centers around politics, society and current events.  Moreover, all of these people have “jobs” that, by their very definition, require them to be not simply  “current” about current events, but to discover the real truths that lurk behind the headlines.

So given all of the above, and given that these people dominate our radio and television airwaves while allegedly personifying THE “conservative” point of view, please... someone... name just ONE of them who has ever uttered one word of skepticism about the government fairy tale of 9/11 or any role that elements of The CIA  or The Mossad might have played in this mass murder on that fateful day.

It simply cannot be done.  It cannot be done because each and every single person on this list, the “cream” of conservative talk U.S. radio and television hosts, is really nothing more than a cardboard conservative cutout of a true Nationalist, masquerading as a national conservative commentator.  All of them hew to the official government line, explanations and excuses for 9/11; and all of them support the "official" government explanation with the same knee-jerk response for which the Left Wing in America often ridicules the Right Wing -- for saluting the flag and blindly marching off into another undeclared war.

But let’s be fair about this.  Even though conservative talk show hosts outnumber liberal talk show hosts, try to find one “liberal” talk show host that has either questioned the government’s’ version of 9/11 or any foreign government’s involvement in those events.

Who do we have here?

o  John Stewart
o  Keith Olbermann
o  Randi Rhodes
o  Stephanie Miller
o  Bill Maher
o  Thom Hartman

o  Ed Schultz

In other words, we look at the supposed complete “opposite” end of the political spectrum -- but we end up with the same results.  Click your heels, salute the flag, and “Support the Troops.”

Of course, the reality is that the “spectrum” of political opinion represented by these people hardly qualifies as coming from the “opposite” ends of the political spectrum; rather, these people are allowed on the air waves to provide political circus for those who cannot see beyond the limitations of their imagination or the leash of their paymaster.

Nevertheless, the big question remains:  why have these people, who make more money than the average American, who have more insight into politics than the average American, who have more time and more responsibility than the average American, who have more news sources and connections than the average American, produced such incredible uniformity of thought on this subject over the air waves? Not even one lone, dissenting voice that dares questions the government’s lies, errors, and omissions?

Why haven’t one of these commentators, whose very job description demands they do more research than simply regurgitating the headlines and stories found in the New York Times or Wall Street Journal, managed to at least have sufficient curiosity to actually read, examine and ponder some of the major, glaring discrepancies in the “official” 9/11 cover-up unearthed by investigators such as architect Richard Gage, Professor Steven Jones, or investigator David Ray Griffin?

What can the matter possibly be?  What unspoken blanket assumption has covered the eyes, hearts and minds of all of these people to search for the Truth past the glaring lies and deceit promulgated by government sycophants and and pathetic, knee-jerk “patriots”?

I can think of only one possibility, one which Paul Craig Roberts developed in a recent article about why propaganda trumps truth over and over again in our society.

It revolves around mindsets, and the fear of expressing an opinion that might rock consensus reality.  It is the fear that lies in the heart of every man or woman who has ever stood up, alone, in an audience of thousands, to proclaim the complete opposite viewpoint to a speaker on stage who has the full, visible backing of government and corporate society.

It is the fear of being different, of being ridiculed, of being out of the “mainstream” of thought.  It is laziness, it is cowardice, it is the worst-case conformity one could ever imagine.   For by refusal to at least deeply examine their assumptions, every single one of these “hosts” has abrogated their duty to their audience and to the people of the United States.

So many have already seen through the tissue of lies promoted by our Government-Media complex; yet they still wait for the “vision” of our social commentators on our public airwaves to catch up to the knowledge, discoveries, understanding and outrage of the American public who have done what they have not dared to do -- gone beyond the sound bites, the headlines, the puff opinion pieces, the simplistic patrio-narco bromides which infect the public consciousness and instead, have actually taken the time to read timelines, the testimony of eyewitness, the almost endless discrepancies in the official story, as well as the pronouncements of the heads of the major intelligence agencies of Italy, Russia and Japan.

Let me make it easy for these hosts:  9/11 was an inside job, done by a small faction of traitors in our government with the help of our CIA and The Mossad, perpetrated to end our liberties and provide them with an excuse to justify a U.S. invasion of the Middle East to control the oil.

It was murder; it was treason; it was an assault on all our liberties, and the dead still cry out for JUSTICE.  Our talk show hosts are not listening.

Our major talk show hosts across the permitted, truncated, “political spectrum” remain reliable running dog lackeys of the international globalist one-world government power establishment.  It is time at least one of them awoke to fulfill their responsibilities and perhaps, their destiny.

The New "Heart Felt" Civilian Salute

Blind Patriotism Triumphs

I came across an interesting story the other day about a passenger on a jet airliner who noticed a few members of the U.S. military waiting to board the same jet on which she was traveling.

While not wanting to approach them directly and tell them that she supported them, she still wanted to let them know that she admired and respected their bravery and courage. Quickly, she thought of a way to show -- silently -- the admiration and respect she felt she wanted to communicate.

Her spontaneous gesture, she felt, was both relevant and appropriate: her hand over her heart, while she silently looked them in the eyes, to convey the appreciation she felt our military men and women truly deserved.

Spontaneously, seeing her silent salute, many other passengers placed their right hand over their hearts to let our military men and women know that they were on “their side” and supported their dedication. It must have been a touching display.

I can perfectly understand why most any American would want to show, in some small way, their admiration, respect and support of the brave men and women of our armed forces who put their lives in jeopardy in service to our country in theaters of conflict around the world. The problem is that our military men and women are fighting for our government, not the people and interests of the United States. And whereas one might think that to fight for one’s government would equate with fighting for the interests of the people that government represents, then you have precisely stumbled upon the conundrum which more than a few of our military personnel have had to confront.

Simply stated, the Federal Government no longer represents the will, hope, aspirations and interests of the people of the United States. Instead, it has been shackled by multinational corporate agendas, blinded by the greed dangled before it by the financial interests of banks and security firms, and vampirized by a foreign power which clandestinely and surreptitiously usurps both the blood and treasure of The United States for its own purposes.

With a civilian led military force, as we have in the United States, our military is used at the command of our Federal Government. And whereas, at one time not so long ago, the Legislative Branch of our government performed its' constitutional role of declaring war, now that power has been gradually usurped by the Executive Branch, so that the awesome power of our military is now be used at the discretionary whim of the Executive, committing our armed forces to fight in undeclared wars, incursions, and “police actions,’ while adulterating the role of our soldiers to ‘peacekeeping” and “nation-building....”.

Rather than existing for the honest defense of our country -- our land, our borders, our people, our property, our way of life -- our military and all of its branches now exists as a means to eliminate governments and peoples opposed to the wishes of those multinational corporations whose political donations dictate where our military forces are used, and for what purposes they serve the politicians beholden to those forces, rather than the interests of our country.

I am not the first to make this observation. Major Smedley Butler, one of the most highly decorated Marines in the history of the Marine Corps, made it earlier in the previous century, when he wrote that “War is a Racket” which was promoted for the elite privileged few to bring about social and economic changes on the political playing fields in the territories and countries upon which it was imposed for the economic benefit of specific individuals and corporations.

Nowadays, even worse than placing our brave young men and women in harm’s way for the advantage of the multinational conglomerates which stand to gain the most benefit by building an oil pipe line from Afghanistan to Haifa, we find that the foreign policy of the United States, as well as the commitment of our ground troops and the support mechanisms of our armed forces are really acting as the proxy power of our "Great Ally" in the Middle East, so that it never has to dirty its hands or fight its battles directly.

With every passing day it becomes more clear and indisputable that our armed forces, the best in the world, are at the beck and call of The Money Power which pulls all the strings behind the screen, making our politicians skip, dance and jump to whatever tune they may wish to play, while providing the camouflage and smoke screens to mask their true motives via the media they own throughout the United States.

It is profoundly disturbing that our great military machine, our brave and patriotic men and women, suffer the risk of permanent disfigurement, horrific injuries, and death to satisfy the imposition of this foreign will, in almost every case completely antithetical to the interests of the United States and its people, for the benefit of a privileged elite in this country and that other.

So therefore I proffer this humble suggestion: knowing that our military must, by the terms of its existence, labor under the yoke of civilian rule, a military which has been turned from its true course by the usurpation of its proper direction by our politicians who care far more for power and wealth than patriotism and their people, I feel the only fitting response of the average citizen, when encountering our fine military personnel on an airplane en route to yet another occupied country, or yet another undeclared war, or yet another nation upon which we have imposed the boot of our military presence, should be to place one hand on their forehead and the other on their wallet or purse, rather than on their hearts: on their head to symbolize the treasonous insanity of using our brave military men and women to achieve favorable advantage for privileged multinational corporations through military force; while placing the other hand on their wallets or purse, to symbolize the waste of resources and treasure, and the sordid waste of our nation's bravest and finest men and women for the benefit of this elite few.

For the truth is that our military no longer fights for the interests of the people and the Nation of the United States, but for it banksters, its political gangsters, and the international power elite who gravitate around their temporary Middle Eastern power base like flies around feces.

I place my hand on my heart only in my thoughts, when I think of all the needless killing, death, destruction, blood and treasure squandered for those who put our brave military personnel needlessly in harms way, not for the benefit of the People of the United States, but for the benefit of the privileged elite who pull the strings of our Government-Media complex.

My America

The Country I Would Like to See

Imagine you are in your favorite place to relax. For the moment, you have let go of all your worries and cares. You free your mind and imagination to roam wherever it will. As you do so, you begin to visualize a place much like where you live, yet a country which has yet to be born.

It is my country, my America, and your country, your America, that has yet to be brought into fruition, an America I want to help create, to bring to reality.

The list I have made of the changes I would like to see in "My America" encompass a variety of issues, the majority of them involving individual freedom and economic opportunity. Go ahead, take a moment, and read through them. Some of them are obvious, some of them less so; some of them you will immediately agree with, and some you assuredly will not. Whatever your initial assessment of these ideas, you are sure to think about them and they will undoubtedly suggest some changes you would like to see in this great land.

Here is My America...

In my America, I would make all of the following changes to return my country to greatness:


o the Federal Government would be reduced in size to deal with only these constitutionally delegated areas of authority;

- the defense of the United States
- the roads and highways of the United States -- building, preservation and repair
- the postal service of the United States
- the coinage of money of the United States
- the patent rights of individuals

o The following major departments (assuredly there would be others) would be completely dismantled and eliminated from the Federal Government:

--The Department of Energy
--The Department of Health
--The Federal Housing Authority
--The Food and Drug Administration
--The Department of Education
--The Federal Communications Commission
--The Environmental Protection Agency
--The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
--The National Endowment for the Arts
--Housing and Urban Development
--The Transportation Security Agency
--The Drug Enforcement Administration
--The Federal Aviation Administration
--The Social Security Administration
(more to be announced)

o all laws passed by congress would first have to go to a committee to prove that they

1. were authorized under the Constitution of the United States
2. did not violate any of the Bill of Rights in any way


o there would be no Internal Revenue Service

o there would be no tax on income; there would only be taxes on goods and services, and tariffs upon the importation of goods

The Federal Government of the United States will also state that the 50 sovereign states of the United States have the right to abolish the Federal Government they created at any time for reasons of their choice.

o The “interstate commerce clause” would finally be interpreted to mean enabling businesses to use the the roads, highways and bridges of the United States productively, rather than as a carte blanche license for the Federal Government to use the ICC as a wedge to meddle in all the affairs of the 50 sovereign states of the United States.

Drug sales to minors would remain a crime, punishable by State law in the locality in which it was committed.

o The U.S. Patent Office would no longer be able to permanently place under wraps and bury, under the guise of “national security,” any patentable idea dealing with the creation, extraction, harnessing, transmission, storage or utilization of any form of energy.

The “national security” excuse formerly used by the U.S. Patent Office to force any inventor to turn over all their research and blueprints on any subject deemed to touch on “national security,” especially whenever it involved alternate energy, and the Patent Office’s ability to place such an individual inventor under direct court order never to reveal, discuss or write about their discoveries for the rest of their lives, would be permanently removed from law.

Instead, the Patent Office would now operate under changed federal statute authority: to publicize and disseminate, to the widest possible audience, any verifiable, replicate-able discovery that could be theoretically or practically utilized for energy creation.

o citizenship would no longer be granted by the expediency of birth within the borders of the United States; it would have to be earned by taking a written or oral test, ONLY IN ENGLISH, regarding the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States. Whoever did not pass this test would not be eligible to become a voting citizen.

o Every square foot of our Northern and Southern borders and our coast lines would be guarded by human beings or remote, pilotless aircraft.

o All illegal alien invaders who crossed our borders would be captured, fingerprinted, photographed and returned to their country of origin ; their country of origin would receive a bill for these services, payable in the form of additional tariffs levied on their goods for sale in the United States.

o all foreign aid to any foreign state, government or individual would END immediately.

o All laws for “possession” of anything would be eliminated. Anything could be legally “possessed.” Only crimes actually committed (not planned, thought about, imagined, discussed, fantasized or “conspired” about) could be prosecuted. All “conspiracy laws" would be eliminated.

o The right to “Keep and Bear Arms” would be recognized to actually mean what the Founding Fathers meant: anyone could possess any weapon (other than a bomb) and wear it, hold it, and keep it, openly or concealed, on their person or property.

Only the unlawful use of a weapon (used in a crime of force or violence) could be reason for prosecution. All laws to restrict the access and acquisition of any firearm or any weapon (other than bombs) by any adult not in jail would be permanently eliminated.

Oh, and just one more....

o Any person running for the Presidency of the United States must prove he or she is a “natural born” citizen of the United States by providing an original long-form birth certificate to the proper authorities before their nomination.

There you have it -- the changes I would make off the top of my head to “My America.”

I’m sure there are many other agencies I would probably abolish had I thought about them; and many other safeguards I would have insisted upon while trying to return My America back to the roots of its greatness.

However, this exercise is only meant as a small first step, an inspirational step, if you will, so that you and others like you and I who love and care deeply for this unique country can find a forum to air our ideas and suggestions to return our country to greatness.

So now it’s your turn.

What would you add, subtract, or change to what I have written to make My America, YOUR America?
