Bad History: A Second Link Between 9/11, North American Union and Lost Sovereignty
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.--George Santanya, Harvard philosopher
On Monday (25 September) I identified a circuitous link between 9/11 and the North American Union. Norman Mineta's amazingly suppressed 9/11 Commission testimony occasioned his immediate "resignation" as US Secretary of Transportation after being outed on national TV last June for fingering Dick Cheney in 9/11 three years ago. To replace Mineta, Bush appointed "
But an even more entrenched and darker link exists between 9/11 and Texas' ongoing land grab in preparation for the North American Union; it's a link understood only by a minority of Americans willing and able to penetrate the thick official fog masking, like the real events of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, our government's terrorist repression of democracy abroad.
Before the Reagan-Bush-Clinton White Houses progressively dismantled its ability to consistently conduct investigative journalism, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting stunned American viewers in 1987 with a remarkable documentary revealing an evidence-based "conspiracy theory." Written and narrated by renowned journalist Bill Moyer, the 90-minute PBS program examined America's "secret government" and how since World War II U.S. leaders unofficially repress populist movements abroad via torture, election fraud, illegal wiretaps, "disappeared" dissidents and assassination.
As a former CIA agent who admits killing innocents abroad on orders from the secret government, author Phillip Agee developed a conscience, quit the agency and began writing books that revealed how the CIA was an instrument for repressing democracy abroad to maintain a friendly investment climate for American business. In CIA Diary, Agee wrote
...what the Agency [CIA] does is ordered by the President and the NSC [National Security Council]. The Agency neither makes decisions on policy nor acts on its own account. It is an instrument of the President...American capitalism, based as it is on exploitation of the poor, with its fundamental motivation in personal greed, simply cannot survive without force - without a secret police force....A considerable proportion of the developed world's prosperity rests upon paying the lowest possible prices for the poor countries' primary products and on exporting high-cost capital and finished goods to those countries. Continuation of this kind of prosperity requires continuation of the relative gap between developed and underdeveloped countries - it means keeping poor people poor.
Any conscientious American citizen who reads with a 6th-grader's comprehension (and whose primary news source isn't TV) understands our Third World techniques of political repression now are evident in post-9/11 America. Still others, privy to American's hidden history of "deterring democracy" abroad, understand the 9/11 "terrorist" attacks were staged by the no-longer-so-secret government to justify bringing home America's exported repression-- strategies honed over a putative 50-year "war of terror" on Third World civilian populations--for an extended engagement.
After five years of gutting constitutional law and erasing government oversight, Phrase II of the Bush White House's "Thirdworldization" plan for
Instead of commandering
First Nation Americans, however, will take issue with Strayhorn's assessment. For them,
Any meaningful success that second-nation Americans seek in "taking back the country" from a fascist-leaning government and its wealthy globalist sponsors must accept the terrible truth of their nation's hidden history. How can social doctors understand which medical instruments and medicines can cure a condition if it is misdiagnosed ?
The only difference in fascism pursued by the Bush White House after the 9/11 attacks and that of its pre-9/11 predecessors is that now it is more overt and racially inclusive: White middle-class Americans now know about economic pillage and the feel of a double-soled jackboot pressed against their throats.
