The Neo-Con Plot to Rule the World
It's 6:30 a.m. and I feel like giving you my view of the big picture. It's how I would answer an essay question: What is really going on right now in America? Okay, here goes:
I think it comes down to whether democracy can survive television. The power of television probably emerged during the Nixon-Kennedy debate, but it's turned into the determining factor in controlling the opinion of the American voter. In other words, you can sell anything to the People if you just have enough airtime. Perhaps like a deadly virus, the potency will lesson as the decades move along, but what is probably going to happen is an even more controlling form of technology that molds public thought in ways I shudder to think about.
In the latter part of the last century a movement emerged called Neo-Conservatism, with an agenda to rule the world. The fall of the Soviet Union gave the opportunity. A nice-sounding mission of spreading freedom and democracy was crafted as a cover story for what this really was: A group of people who wanted to seize power, and then use the might of the United States to crush other countries, in the interests of oil, Israel, and even more control. Throughout history men have come forward intoxicated by the urge to rule the world. A confluence of events gave the Neo-Cons their shot. All they still needed was the White House, and the American Public behind them.
So they needed a candidate. Out from the ranks of one of America's leading political families there stumbled a young George W. Bush. He had the one trait that mattered - he could be the face on television. It didn't matter that he was a drugged-out, partying frat boy, with a homosexual past, and little intellectual capability. He could be sold on television as a Compassionate Conservative - a deeply religious, monogamous Christian. Once in place he would work for the mega-rich in this country while playing a down-home cowboy clearing brush at his ranch. His volatile temper would be controlled with drugs, and his weak mind would be marketed as plain-spoken. He looked good on television and that was all that mattered. They could feed him his lines and in fact did it electronically sometimes right while he was speaking.
The TV face had been selected and now it was just a matter of getting one of the Neo-Con ringleaders into power. Dick Cheney was the top dog - the most vicious, driven member of the group - the most power-crazed chicken hawk of all time. Selected to find a VP, he wormed himself into the job. As January of 2001 approached, all was in place except for the one last part of the plan: A new Pearl Harbor to get the American Public behind the Neo-Cons. Without it they were just another administration. With it they would have the momentum for preemptive strikes, and seizing domestic liberties. They would be able to crush internal dissent, and torture anyone they wished. The moment this event happened, in their minds, they would basically run the world.
Careful plans were drawn up that led to 9/11. Dick Cheney was put in charge of NORAD several months prior, so he could run the war games that would disguise the plot, and disable the air defenses of the United States. To avoid detection outside operatives from Moussad, the Israeli CIA, would be used. I believe the terrorists' plan with the planes was discovered and then allowed to succeed. It worked almost perfectly. Sure, some Israeli agents were arrested as they watched the World Trade Center burn, and danced in celebration. They would say later that they had been sent to document the event, but interestingly their van tested positive for bomb making materials. That was probably the closest call from the day. Actual Middle Easterners were arrested in what had to be foreknowledge, but they weren't Arabs. It was so blatant that they were held for a few months before being allowed to leave by the Neo-Cons. The United States government let them go because they were partners in crime.
The aftermath of the plan was a huge success. The Patriot Act - already written before hand - sailed through Congress. The President's numbers soared. America was ready to get behind anything the Neo-Cons wanted. It was perfect, and led directly to another plan drawn up way before: the War in Iraq. Although this had nothing to do with 9/11, that was not a problem. It was sold as a response to 9/11 on television. Speech after speech took place, appearance after appearance, until a huge number of Americans believed something that was not true. They believed Saddam was behind the attack. Why? Simple. Their leaders on television had insinuated and flat-out stated that he was. Over and over again. The Neo-Cons had accomplished exactly what they wanted - the ability to unleash the United States military on anyone they chose.
It's been 5 years since the plot, and 1 out of 3 Americans is on to it. How? Wasn't television successful in keeping this thing going? What about the great power of television to control minds?
Thankfully, a new medium of communication has sprung up. It is called the Internet. The government is sprinting to try and control it but right now, the American Public is actually free to communicate on it. That is a very powerful thing. The evidence for 9/11 is on it and that is a huge problem for Cheney and his team. They are in a race against the truth to retain their hold on power.
In less than 6 weeks an election takes place that could determine their fate. Nothing will be left in the playbook. There will be an October Surprise. There will be massive electronic voting fraud. There will be all manner of criminal behavior. Candidates could even die. Their little campaign planes could drop from the sky. Anything is possible when criminals face getting caught.
The main tool to retain power will be - once again - television. A massive ad campaign will be run from now till election day, designed to mold the Public for one last push. It is the biggest tool the government has, and you will be seeing a lot of it. Standing in opposition will be the new technology - the Internet. The Internet has already caused a lot of trouble for the rulers of America. Locally individuals have raised hell about how city councils are run. Nationally, the Internet has threatened to expose 9/11 for the Neo-Con crime that it really was. These are dangerous times. Be careful.
