Defining the Corporate-Industrial Complex (New World Order)

This animation was made about a year ago for a future episode spent better explaining the general structure of the New World Order (NWO) aka the Corporate-Industrial Complex. With no plans currently in sight for that episode, I am uploading the animation with my first song on top for your viewing and remixing pleasure.

It only takes a couple minutes! Call your representatives today!..about any issue you find important. This is a very important aspect of democracy.

In this episode of #CallingCongress, I present calls to one of my senators, Dianne Feinstein, and to President Barack Obama’s office. I request they firmly reject the current escalation to war with Iran happening now, and to reject any such war in the future…NO MATTER THE JUSTIFICATION given like another false flag terrorist attack in America or Israel.

War is simply NOT appropriate and does NOT solve any of the problems the people of earth face!

Even Further Beyond Left and Right

A Thought Experiment Ending with Transparency and Social Businesses

We can see Americans increasingly rebelling against both the establishment left and the right. Even the mainstream media has had to cover this aspect of the transitions which both political parties are going through during this decade of endless predictable crises.

Acknowledgment of the corruption found on both sides of the political aisle is one of the core concepts which amazing outlets like We Are Change, Infowars and the Corbett Report attempt to spread. I have always found the current two-party system completely inadequate for aggregating the will of the people, and have long adored the idea of either more parties or no parties. So I am very excited to see this reach an ever more conscious level of the national dialogue, but I want to tease the ball a few steps further to help expand the range of potential solutions we consider for upcoming debates.

Below is a more relaxed, long-brewing brainstorm on a couple of paradigms I think might also contribute to paralyzing, if not controlling or co-opting, our best courses of action. These could hypothetically be highlighted to help divide and conquer the masses.

In some cases, the polarizing effect of having primarily two extreme camps to choose from on sub-issues may be hurting more than helping. We also sometimes see the negative effects of such polarization skyrocket when single ideologies are be forced on all scenarios, instead of a more flexible case by case basis. Fortunately the movement has loud voices warning people not to follow any one ideology.

So this is a humble request for the movement to keep pushing past the confines separating us to keep finding increasingly targeted solutions to counter-offer those provided from the top-down system. The better we can hone our arguments and improve our messaging to newcomers to alternative analysis and deep politics.

More VS Less Government? Quality NOT Quantity.

This is a simpler example, and relates to many of my good patriot friends who stand firmly with slogans for “Less Government.” To my eyes or ears, such statements feel a bit counterproductive to our shared goals for a few reasons, but maybe it only irks me.

“Less Government” is vague enough to be co-opted by almost any harmful solution provided. It is also not a rule/ideology you can always follow, unless you’re an anarchist…but then your sign should probably read, “No Government.” This formula should not be endlessly applied, and our libertarian friends sometimes take this mantra too far too blindly.

But more importantly, it implies that the size of government has a causal relationship with its level of corruption or negative impact. In my book, this feels quite unfair.

Larger organizations of any type may have more room for bad apples to hide and prosper. But our society’s policies, manufactured culture and promoted incentives have a far greater influence the positive or negative nature of the impact of organizations (governmental or not).

In a similarly apathetic political climate, a given corporation might have even less trouble buying out a smaller government than our current monstrosity. At the same time, there is a real threat of “Big Government” when corporations can entrench departments and pro-actively using government to directly enact corporate agenda, find ways to increase their budgets to keep expanding their government cloaked work, as we saw more publicly during George W Bush’s military-industrial reign. In the same administration we saw other corporate owned departments strip themselves down as much as possible, completely disassembling any form of meaningful regulation over themselves.

Our current [predictable] economic bubble burst could have been avoided/postponed if trillions of dollars in profit incentives not been allowed to manifest in the first place as derivatives, sub-prime mortgages and other legal Ponzi schemes. That scale of money is not just a motive with a universal adapter on it, but also notably contributes to increasing the vast wealth disparity.

Along these lines, and somewhat ironically, many of those using the “Less Government” slogan might also likely be in favor improving/returning real banking regulations to once against prevent these abuses which the world people and economies are suffering. I assume that a ban on toxic financial products (or any other way to regulate them) would generally be interpreted as “More Government” on this scale.

But if the incentives of our culture were shifted enough, and procedures were made ~100% transparent to the public, we might be able to find some government G spot where the government reflects the public’s interest. This might be theoretical, but it should be nearly attainable, not even requiring a revolution but incremental changes in the correct direction for a change. And seems to be what we should be striving for…ever more pure realization of those ideals inspiring us as youth learning about our republic/democracy (sorry, still insufficient understanding of that paradigms).

The causality implied in this association between more government and bad government also does not seem theoretically sound. With a truly responsible government, an increase in its size could simultaneously increase citizen freedoms. In conclusion, I argue we need to focus on uprooting the incentives for corruption in government, perhaps via campaign finance reform and revolving door protections, instead of just saying we want to change the size. A wise woman once told me it is not really the size of your government that matters, it’s all about how you use it.

The Capitalism VS Socialism Paradigm

This is a case with much graver polarization, and it might be totally unnecessary. One of my dad’s core mantras is all about looking for the right questions to ask. Despite Chomsky’s blind spots or self-censoring on select topics, he is of course brilliant, inspiring and an early influence of mine. So I really like his approach on this here (click here for video).

Suppose you’re in the 18th century. Should you be asking, ‘Which is the best kind of feudalism?’ I mean that’s all it was. So which is the best kind of feudalism, and slavery, and monarchy and so on and so forth. It just wasn’t the right question. I mean the right question is, ‘Is there something better?’ Like say, parliamentary democracy. Even though there were no examples of it. There were seeds of it, but no functioning examples. I mean seeds of had it been developed and usually crushed, as in England, but these were legitimate struggles. And you know, they succeeded. I mean by now you have parliamentary democracies, which aren’t fantastic but are better than feudalism.” – The World: The Noam Chomsky Sessions

Suppose you’re in the 21st century, what is the best kind of capitalism? The best socialism? Is capitalism better than socialism? What blend of the two would be best? Why are we limited to these questions?

Capitalism or socialism often represent the two main options offered to us in response to most problems, but we don’t even consider trying to come up with any new forms of national economic or governmental organization. Case by case, those rooting for capitalism might tend to dismiss socialist solutions, and vice versa, mostly to stay loyal to their dominant ideology. But as humans we sometimes get trapped into acting like these ideologies are the mythical unified theory of everything in physics, applying it to every aspect of society.

An occasionally mentioned aspect to the discussion is how many ‘socialized’/nationalized services and industries, most people have long approved of like THE MILITARY, Highway System, Federal Waterways, FBI, Bureau of Prisons, Census Bureau, National Park Service, Social Security and all the other free services provided by the executive and legislative branches. So it seems we could have been considered a part-capitalist, part-socialist country for decades. Even better are the number of recent cases we see where the profits privatized while the risks a nationalized, like the painful bank bailouts and Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The point of terms like ‘crony capitalism,’ is to point out just how far we are from the pure idealized form touted by talking heads. In fact, it seems the bigger mutant capitalist corporations have become so efficient at their business that they went ahead and took over our government, saving us the trouble of regulating them. But if we reign the beast in soon, we may yet have a chance to replace weapons research budgets by incentivizing less harmful technologies across the board.

Unfortunately these ‘ism’s may be false options on yet another level, given another alternate analysis arguing that our country has been best defined as fascist for decades now. This is rooted in the comprehensive corporate influence on most important functions of government, controlling both candidates in a single-party state. A plutocracy (or corpocracy, corporatocracy) has emerged very clearly, along side some of the largest and most offensive wealth inequities in modern history.

It is also bizarre that there is such passion for either of these economic systems, as we have seen examples of both producing failed states when inappropriately implemented…bringing us back my focus on quality over quantity. Our capitalist experiment has been going for just a few hundred years, and this current incarnation of crazed crony-capitalism has clearly dominated at least the past century. It seems clear the technological advances provided by our capitalism incentivized by wealth has potential for enormous net benefits for our species in the long run…but the judge is still out, between our food mono-cultures, biodiversity, GMOs, nuclear and biological weapons.

Another large unmentioned issue when debating socialist versus capitalist solutions is the source of the taxes. An interesting thought experiment is to first ask some one if they would favor socializing some service, perhaps health care. Then ask them if they would still be opposed to it if typical citizens once again did not pay any income tax, while the Fortune 500 moves out of the Cayman Islands to start correcting the record wealth disparities. The nature of who or where the finances come from to run all nationalized services should be a critically important factor in what people think is worth paying for.

The final problem I have with these false options is that they don’t seem to be completely mutually exclusive. As Chomsky says later in the video above, there is no reason businesses cannot be managed democratically controlled by their workers and community, and compete with other businesses managed the same way and others. But there are other ways to improve the capitalism formula without giving up the typical management hierarchy of today.

Capitalism doesn’t say businesses must compete by maximizing-profits, which is very selfish and short-sighted, that’s just how we’ve been playing. If more large-scale businesses stop going public to make them legally bound to maximize profits for shareholders, they will be free to be the best business they can be across all dimensions which humans care about.

If customers and investors take more initiative to carefully vote daily with their dollars for social-benefit-maximizing businesses, which show enough conscience to mitigate their externalities while provide the world beneficial products and services. Dollar votes are currently the most powerful form of voting we have, far better than the false choice A or B every 4 years. More resources for the information required to educate these daily decisions are likely to emerge, like The Better World Handbook. But this social-benefit-maximizing business model is a marvelous idea champions by Muhammad Yunus, the Social Business. I strongly recommend you explore this concept and this man more, here is an except to wet your appetite:

Muhammad Yunus – The Social Business Model

This general concept of a social business is also finally catch hold in America. This is possibly a side-effect of the long-awaited liberal pendulum swing, and the tough economic times of our decade. Yunus was just last year awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama.

His microcredit banks have brought millions out of poverty in Bangladesh over the past four decades  — side-note: this should theoretically be a plus for eugenicists because population naturally stabilizes as a country develops, and this may be the most natural, positive and creative method being successfully tried. A few test-runs of similar microcredit banks are finally being started up in America.

According to the web site of B Corporation, a leading certification firm to certify businesses adhering to enough of these kinds of social business principles, over 300 companies have become certified with a branded B Corporation status since 2006, including Seventh Generation. The 300 represent $1.1 billion in revenues, 54 industries, and $750k in annual savings.

There is a parallel movement around the country to grant legal tax status to B Corporations which one assumes will offer various benefits back to these businesses. My home state of Maryland signed the nation’s first Benefit Corporation legislation on April 13th and Vermont passed it on May 19th, 2010. Whether or not their state is ready for it yet, businesses can start taking a confidential survey NOW to learn what areas they need improvement on, to work towards a longer-term goal of becoming fully certified.

Full disclosure: my very cool 9-5 work, Rescue Social Change Group, based in San Diego, is already looking into this process and looks forward to becoming certified without having to alter our existing small social business model infused from the beginning. What can I say other than, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Conclusions: Transparency and Social Businesses

Alone, neither left nor right, neither more nor less government, neither capitalism nor socialism can save us. So let us please not choose our preferred solutions solely because they fit into one ideology or another. Rationally look at the situation and find the longest-term good we can muster no matter what ‘ism’ it implies.

In place of protesting for less (or more) government, I would protest for transparent government. Any sized government can work for its people if they have information and access. What jerks in Congress can forever avoid voting for bills if they are specifically honed only on increasing transparency? As a general note, shorter bills in Congress may generally help both these issues and finding more worth-while common ground. Campaign finance reform is quite possibly the other most serious roadblock to real control over our own government.

‘Do you lean towards Capitalism or Socialism?’ – Maybe I’m into Social Businism!

Either ideology, taken to the extreme, becomes quite a scary beast, so please don’t use them as the primary basis for every decision. It’s just like being tempted to just vote down your party-line…what does that party stand for, exactly…and as related to a specific modern-day issue?

In this next economy transition, we could try to replace a portion of the 100% worthless trinket capitalism products and services with social businesses to compete on a few fronts with the corporate-industrial complex, targeting first the industries vital to human life an well-being. With the proper public education, product labeling and accessibility, we can gradually shift to only pay for products made with our long-term interest in mind, instead of someone else’s short-term bottom-line.

And it should turn out that plenty of industries and niche markets do not need to ditch their profit-maximizing models. Hopefully many key industries will end up dominated by social businesses and see a rebirth to provide options healthier for us, our neighbors and our planet. There will also always be room for profit-maximizing businesses to coexist even after this, but that decision would be in the hands of those markets.

So if enough people like this, it is one possible direction we could try to steer towards while we’re fighting the smaller battles: the widespread conversions and start-ups of real Social Businesses, followed up by communities supporting them simply with our patronage.

Why wait for Washington when we can make these moves ourselves?

‘War on Terror’ Narrative Case Study: The Christmas Day Bombing Attempt

aka Die Hard Like It’s 2009!
Essay↓ Assumptions↓ Data Dump↓ Stocks

A couple days after Christmas, a loved one asked me if my gut said this terrorist attempt was a false flag event or other not as officially covered. My reply was yes, but that much more research was needed for a more serious response. So the primary goal of this narrative case study is to clarify the kind of research and mental processes many alternative media followers and researchers use to read between the lines of mass media. This is always research in progress, and there is not yet any specific group(s) to blame beyond the obvious, but we can at least trace some indicators we see in many other narratives, past and present…
  • Early planning and implementation stages of research, function and integration of new ‘security’ technologies
  • Security versus privacy discussions with slow, gradual mental conditioning of the masses to accept the desired changes, whether or not the propaganda succeeds
  • Testing implementation of technology and related propaganda in small locals long before creating a nationwide policy (no, there’s nothing inherently wrong with this process, but it does point to some level of conscious intent)
  • The rarity of alternative analysis evidence breaking out for a full news cycle in the mainstream discussion, reaching echo chamber status and becoming a ‘valid’ talking point (all these seem to be relative whitewash in this case study)
  • Parallel implementation, media spin and narratives in other ‘developed’ countries
  • Sometimes finding the key differences in the coverage between the different ‘developed’ countries expand perspective on an issue ten-fold (nothing big in this case study)
 
Full disclosure: immediately after learning of these impressive naked x-ray body scanners in December, i fundamentally disagreed with widespread use of this new technology on moral and privacy grounds. As a Burner who does get nude when the time and place is right, it would surely be a different discussion if public nudity was not so taboo. But with today’s social norms it is definitely unreasonable (Fourth Amendment style) to perform any equivalence of a strip search on everyone boarding every plane, and it seems high standards of reasonable, documented suspicion should be required for boarding any plane or even passing through Customs.

Comparison of international media coverage before, during and after the event often teaches new facts and shines light if any narratives are being sold at home. This particular narrative is part of a 10 YEAR documented effort to trade new specific privacy concessions for new false senses of security when boarding planes. Testing in a few airports in a country at a time, [AP, 1999] we have gradually been prepared for this. They have used this time to hone their messaging and propaganda arguments for the inevitable nationwide discussion on whether the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) should even be using these. In different local trials, results are always promoted as very favorable. [London Guardian, Independent, CSMonitor] Manufacturers would also simultaneously discuss both how high-resolution details were required in order for the machines to be effective [Washington Times] and how they blur the images for privacy (presumably reducing their effectiveness). [UK Daily Mail] The manufacturers have gone through countless difference animation styles in search for the proper balance of security and privacy, [Global Security, London Telegraph] but either way, England has drawn a line where they consider its use child porn. [The Register, London Guardian] Promoters of the technology have always insisted that all the images captured are immediately destroyed, [CNN] like the London Evening Standard just days before a Bollywood superstar autographed print-outs for girls running his naked body scan in February. [ACLU]

To this day, naked x-ray scanning is voluntary
in the places the machines are installed, and “more intense” pat-down searches are offered as the alternative, [AP] but given the decade of novel infringements of our rights, we cannot afford to give up any more fundamental ground we are pushed toward raising the bar yet another notch. [Chicago Tribune, BBC] A few years ago, the UK started the discussion of also adding similar x-ray scanners into their jaw-dropping arsenals of cameras on city streets! [BBC] The mainstream media is already starting to line up the next manufactured security need, as real terrorists can still take their cause one step forward by putting explosives in a body cavity. [UK Daily Mail, New York Post]

If they are implemented on a larger scale as an optional choice to a pat-down, then they can be avoided and are logically useless. Some experts have even demonstrated how these machines might be worked around by hypothetical terrorists. [The Register] If they will be required for all searches of that level, then would they want to use a virtual strip search to search many more people who they wouldn’t regularly strip search?
So what, other than pure profit-maximizing greed, could the real motive of advance this security arms race? This seems at best a modest transfer of wealth, and at worst a self-fulfilling prophecy for increased terrorism and erosion of constitutional rights.

These are some examples of the narrative’s red flags of consistent messaging/conditioning. These
omissions of certain topics in the mainstream debate increases suspicion that this event was, in some way, staged by some [small] component[s] of the military-intelligence-industrial complex. The primary motives are assumed to at least be what we’ve historically seen: short and/or long-term profit while tip-toeing forward a reduction of individual privacy. It is also interesting that when state legislatures pass pro-active laws to protect from more widespread us of similarly invasive technologies, [Idaho Reporter] they are generally generalized as paranoid nuts or coverage focuses on straw man religious arguments instead of constitutional or law-based arguments. [MSNBC]

Since performing the majority of my historical narrative research on this topic in mid-January, a bit more information has been confirmed which seriously conflict with the official story still being referenced weekly.
Alex Jones/Infowars/Prison Planet and his now rapidly increasing ~3 million weekly listeners have become something of a hub in the alternative media world, similar to WikiLeaks. One of his listeners was a lawyer from Michigan named Kurt Haskell was one of the first-hand eye-witnesses on the plan, and his story which after being shared with the Infowars audience was covered locally in Michigan Live on Dec 31, Jan 2 and others, but not picked up at all by any other mainstream media except 5 minutes on NPR. His story includes these highlights:
  • There was initially a second man on the plane (his “man in orange”) who was arrested/being held and who allegedly videotaping the incident.
  • A sharp dressed “Indian man” attempting to talk a ticket agent into letting a supposed “Sudanese refugee” (Abdulmutallab) onto flight 253 without a passport.
  • If his eye witness account is false, it could easily be proven by releasing the Amsterdam airport video tapes showing the “sharp dressed man”.

 

 
His story was officially denied by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for about a month, until being confirmed in just a few mainstream places in the next month as the story faded and the presumed truth is used as justification for future measures. The Detroit News, Jan 27 covered some alternate aspect of this event, but has now taken this article down from their own web site, among others, Terror suspect kept visa to avoid tipping off larger investigation:
 

Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.

ABC News, Jan 22 also gave it the final three short paragraphs in a two-page online article with the unrelated headline, Alert: Female Suicide Bombers May Be Heading Here From Yemen:

 

As part of the additional scrutiny, federal agents are conducting extensive background checks on every passenger who flew to Detroit on the Northwest flight in case one of them might have been sent as a “spotter” on the mission. Federal agents also tell ABCNews.com they are attempting to identify a man who passengers said helped Abdulmutallab change planes for Detroit when he landed in Amsterdam from Lagos, Nigeria. Authorities had initially discounted the passenger accounts, but the agents say there is a growing belief the man have played a role to make sure Abdulmutallab “did not get cold feet.”

 

 
The mainstream media brings up other obvious factors of the investigation related to previous knowledge and information gathering on this alleged terrorist, [ABC] or with his father alerting US officials in advance. [CNN, BBC] But currently, this alternative analysis of events does get a significant mention on Wikipedia, but it is not even being discussed enough to be denied by the mainstream media. It would be more satisfying if some of these harder questions were at least brought up by the US mainstream media, instead of this drum beat to trade more security for privacy. [McClatchy] In this case, and the status quo, the corporate media left and right usually aren’t interested in solve any underlying problems. They enjoyed focusing on things like…
Neither side wanted to ask: Should the less ethical parts of our government/security-complex have better planned or enabled this drill/false flag terrorist attempt in advance, for a faster roll-out of these shiny new machines we already budgeted and bought…to save our tax dollars on the psychological warfare convincing us we need all this? (*tongue, cheek*)

Similar to the sting felt every subsequent time the official story of 9/11 is used to justify policy, i will continue to cringe every time this Christmas Day Bombing Attempt is used as an example of recent terrorist attacks on the US which demand forcing solutions of varying oppression/freedom to people around the world.

General Background Assumptions

False flags and acts of treason stay quiet longest by requiring as few people involved as possible. So the benefit of the doubt is generally given to the vast majority of the people involved in such a ‘conspiracy,’ as they do not realize any involvement. Following the motive, money, media,
name and organization trails, the owners, stakeholders of the suspicious organizations (and their associates who also profit) almost always have the most to gain, but does not make them guilty, even by association. Nonetheless, the question is important: Who has motives enough to justify such costs to innocent life, liberty or justice?

Historically, those most effectively controlling populations almost always use The Hegelian Dialectic, [Wikipedia] aka the Problem Reaction Solution paradigm, to progress their agendas
generally in three steps:
1. Create or exploit a problem, blaming it on others
2. The people react by asking for help, and are willing to trade something

3. Offer the solution that was planned long before the crisis
 
 
Deconstructing A Narrative: Data Dump

I’ve cataloged over 200 mainstream articles
here in my documentation database beyond the highlights in the data dump below:

– Olbermann – Detroit bomber intel failure: ‘Conspiracy or cock up?’ “That has got to be an area that the White House is looking into and, you know, motives can be hard to assess because it’s not clear that this person was easily identified as a terrorist. Even with the father coming forward saying they had concerns, was that more of a family concern or were there enough fingerprints here about the radicalization of this individual to suggest that it should have been taken to a different level – at the very least a security level beyond more than a nominal sharing of information. That’s where this inquiry, this internal inquiry, for the moment, has to go.”

So it was announced on Dec 14th that the companies building and selling the selected machines, Rapiscan Systems (interestingly run by Deepak Chopra) and Smiths Detection (British company), that the TSA would buy their machines in the next 30 days {ATW}, and i performed many thorough Google News searches in January to compile a history of this shorter narrative. Starting with a more general searches like: “X-ray body scanners terrorists“, sorted by date, then start filtering by eye for articles related to this kind of x-ray technology.  Google News archive searches were also done, sorted by date, for each of the companies now making the x-ray naked scanning machines for airports, and each of the terrorists.

Though i was later able to find some more articles with different searches, this acted as one benchmark of how likely most people had heard the news on this terrorism narrative around Christmas. Google News, Default (Recent) Searches done in mid-January:

Rapiscan – 13 Pages, but only one article before Christmas, on Dec 14th
Smiths Detection – 6 Pages, about a dozen articles before Christmas mostly on announcement of new VP, earliest was Dec 14th
American Science and Engineering – 4 Pages, all after Christmas, earliest Dec 28, 2009

ICx Technologies – 8 Pages, all after Christmas, earliest Dec 30, 2009

You might notice how parallel the United Kingdom paths on homeland security and privacy, it’s often described as the Anglo-American Empire, they’re usually a few years ahead of us. Also notice (by article tags) how long the ACLU has been fighting this.

Since Christmas, the media coverage of course skyrockets, but the basic discussion is the same as it has been for 10 years. But now it is in all major headlines everywhere, and not just more local mentions for the areas with airports testing the technology.
All the aspects and arguments summarized above were out there, but whichever ones you remember hearing from the mainstream is likely the version of the narrative desired at the top.

From reading through its media history, and reviewing the full time line generated on my database, it seems clear that elements of the military-industrial complex have been building and consistently pushing a wide variety of these naked x-ray scanners. But since such
security equipment manufacturing corporations are lawfully required to maximize their profits for their shareholders, can we really even blame them if they did orchestrate this one? Brutal.



Stock Prices: Scratching One More Surface

Given the potential contract with TSA, the high predictability of a rise in the stock price immediately after the bombing attempt is itself an opportunity for anyone with foreknowledge to profit on the short-term. But even if nobody took advantage of their foreknowledge, there’s a clear long-term benefit for shareholders and helping secure their next round of government contracts.

So it was announced on Dec 14th that the companies building and selling the selected machines, Rapiscan Systems (interestingly run by Deepak Chopra) of OSI Systems and Smiths Detection (British company), that the Transportation Security Administration would buy their machines in the next 30 days
{ATW}

…without major change in OSI Systems stock price,
…then a negligable rise after a press release from Smiths Group on Dec 23rd
…and finally jumping from 22.02 just before the bombing, to 32.64 by Jan 8th, just shy of a 50% increase, and is the highest point in their 12 year history!

Smiths Detection, part of
Smiths Group, is on the British market and while it did have some gains following the attempt, it was no outlier in the big picture of their stock.

Given
the way in which this terrorist attempt should help solidify their pending contract with TSA and is likely to continue inflating their stock, i would be completely happy if i at least heard a US mainstream media outlet MENTION this obvious potential motive. But it seems possible that the TIMING of the bombing attempt could not have been any better for Rapiscan and Smiths.

Another company, though not mentioned as part of this month’s purchase is
American Science and Engineering Inc, first mentioned regarding naked x-rays in airports in October 2001, but had been building these devices for PRISONS at least since 1998:
ASEI had its first big stock doubling immediately after 9/11, with an August high of ~6 and September high of ~15
…with slow decline until the second half of 2004 when it rose to an all-time high in March ’06 of ~93
…waffling until a low of ~58 in March ’09, and rising steadily since then
Dec 24th closed at 71.70, rising five points alone on the 28th, then announcing another $39 million govt contract for cargo x-ray machines on Jan 4th [HomelandDefenseStocks.com]

then rising up to 83.53 by Jan 8th.

And the final company, which i learned of at the very end of this phase of the research,
ICx Technologies, who makes other security devices:
…while closing it’s first day in Nov ’07 at 12.60, dropping to 4.39 in Mar ’08, rising for a year then sharing ASEI’s Mar ’09 drop bringing them back down to 4.12
…they close at 4.98 on Christmas Eve, and close out 2009 at 9.52, nearly doubling!

Interestingly, the deal merging Northwest Airlines with
Delta Airlines had also just been completed and is in the final steps. [ABC] But Delta’s stock appeared unaffected by the incident.

But again, many defense contractor stocks increased in response to this terrorist attempt, as most such companies and government directly benefit from
9/11. This is just meant to demonstrate how tangible and concrete this motive is, both for these companies and financial speculators with inside information. After all, Wall Street is where the largest sum of wealth and power in world history are currently being consolidated.

My Introductory Letter to Friends and Family

Dearest Friends and Family,

“As for me, all I know is that I know nothing.” – Socrates (probably)

I wish to unite a somewhat urgent meeting with you and several other closest and most trusted minds. While being aware of certain information and ideas since 2001, perhaps I was intimidated by the breath and scope. Or perhaps my focus on fighting the absurd ‘war on drugs,’ which had affected me more directly, seemed like a more manageable goal. But over the past seven years, I have done my best to research and rationalize away from what increasingly seems to be an Orwellian reality, without adequate success. Therefore, I feel this need to reveal my opinions to an unprecedented degree. In this endeavor, I hope I am not, though assume I am, unknowingly plagiarizing ideas of great minds past. But rest assured: I am still, and always will be, an absolute pacifist.

The topics I am touching on here are only being raised here because I have found enough solid evidence to support them. The bits of evidence I do briefly touch upon can found via Google and my research database, InfowarDocs.org, described at the end. My hope is that some of these issues alarm you too, and we can find solutions together.

Background On My World View
These are the most difficult, and highest level issues to wrestle with in search of truth. Usually we have the official story on one side and the ‘conspiracy theorists’ providing an alternate story. But rarely do we receive rational debate based on facts and evidence from both sides, let alone an official response to accusations. Instead, the two sides endlessly write off each others’ arguments as coming from the crazies, blinded or corrupted. My tendencies lean on the side of those promoting transparency over secrecy. Therefore, I am particularly skeptical of the motives of those who categorically deny the evidence for such theories, no matter how strongly it is based in science or public record.

Raised solidly from the left, one of my earliest memories from elementary school is of writing George H W Bush a letter, including silly clip art, pleading against the war in Iraq. I have always voted for Democrats except a protest vote for Nader in 2000 when Maryland was safe for Gore. But my belief in the right for anybody to put anything into their bodies, absent harm to others, (all drugs should be taxed and regulated) opened me to many of the libertarian concepts. But at the end of the day, I disagree with the right-left paradigm and do not think any two parties could ever provide a true democracy.

While raised with a firm belief in capitalism, I simultaneously believe that certain things should be not be based in profit, like basic food, shelter, health care and protection of the environment…to the extreme that it would be far more effective to feed and shelter peoples of the Middle East rather than invade and murder them in reaction to the 9/11 attacks. Hence, I do not think the appropriate question is asking what form of capitalism or socialism is best, but rather we must accept the fact that we have no working examples of superior forms of government which could obey truth and citizens’ interest.

Similarly, I am not against globalization, but rather I am concerned with the motives and methods which have thus far been used to covertly bring in world governmental bodies that we already know like the United Nations and World Trade Organization. I do think most people in these organizations have good intentions. Have you heard of the North American Union, which quietly began merging the United States with Canada and Mexico in 2005? While there are certain realities which require countries to coordinate closely with each other, but this can be done without loss of sovereignty and human rights, using transparent and honest methods.

9/11 Was A False Flag Attack

“False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities.” (Wikipedia)

In the days following 9/11, the official story developing and the war drum beating towards the Middle East was inherently illogical to me (blaming Osama bin Laden the ex-CIA asset and Al Qaeda, which we now know was at the time merely the name of one of our intelligence databases). First, how could our citizens assume we did not deserve such an attack despite the [covertly] inflicted terrorism and wars we have promoted around the world through the decades? Second, how could unilaterally invading any country possibly improve our national security? Of course, it was clear to everyone that such logic pales to the forces of the military-industrial complex, and yet I felt very nervous about making many of my ‘unpatriotic’ views public.

The ‘USA Patriot Act’ earned my attention both as a drug policy activist and as one with an open ear to ‘conspiracy theorists.’ As it was clear to most, this was a blatant slap in the face to our Constitution and our basic rights, sold to the public as a required trade of freedoms for security. While we have never had something close to a pure democracy, now even our basic liberties and rights are too threatened. And of course, our country’s invasions of the Middle East were fear-mongered missteps in defiance of US and international law.

But as increasing 9/11 evidence and analysis have come out over the years, it has become increasing conclusive in my mind that the official story was at best, a gross mismanagement of foreknowledge by multiple agencies. At worst, it is much closer to an intentional plot including some of the nation’s highest leaders to quickly progress their pre-declared goals of war and a state of security. But from years of interest and study in basic physics, simply watching the nearly free-fall collapse of the World Trade Center buildings, through the path of most resistance, inherently screamed to me that these were controlled demolitions…and I knew I was not alone (patriotsquestion911.com).

To this day, the victims of 9/11 still have not had 70% of their questions answered, including two of the most smoking guns, in my opinion:

  1. The controlled demolition of World Trade Center Building 7, not hit by any planes
  2. This statement from the 9/11 Commission Report: “To date, the US Government has not been able to determine the origin of the money used for the 9/11 attacks. Ultimately the question is of little practical significance.”

It is my opinion that the origin of the money is of the most practical significance, and this mentality completely discredits the efforts and motivations of the 9/11 Commission.

Intelligence whistle blowers and rare media outlets have found fairly convincing paper trails, much more informative than the official 9/11 Commission. Far beyond that, just two months ago Niels Harrit and his team of chemists at the University of Copenhagen published a peer-reviewed paper confirming the discovery of un-reacted nano-thermite (thermate) explosives in World Trade Center dust in New York City. Nano-thermite, is extremely advanced and currently only publicly known to be used by the US Department of Defense and military. This finding is in direct conflict with the conclusions of fire-based collapse provided by FEMA, NIST and the 9/11 Commission.

So while the attacks gave all governments across the world a great boost in power, increasingly clear to me that our US leaders allowed, if not provided, this problem to which they could directly push through their narrow-scoped set of solutions. These are the conclusions I have come to thus far on this event, and I strongly encourage you to learn as much as you can to reach your own conclusions. Unfortunately, given all the evidence I have reviewed, I can only believe that 9/11 was a false flag attack.

Is A Policy Paradigm Shift Actually Happening?
While it is good for people to come to these realizations now, it is obviously far too late to stop the mass deaths from wars and torture. We are almost eight years out from this event, and people reaching these conclusions are still categorically considered ‘crazies’ by the mainstream media. This sets an extremely dangerous precedent as to how much the government is still able to get away despite this budding age of information, a renaissance which I hope ushers in a paradigm of ultimate respect for truth…but this is clearly not the agenda of the top policy makers.

Ever since the 9/11 false flag, we have seen such a rapid disassembly of our constitutional liberties and rights, but more importantly President Obama seems to be defending far too many of these abominations. One major turning point for me was his recent speech delivered in the National Archives in front of the US Constitution, during which he defended the use of prolonged detentions, the guilty before proven innocent logic (we still have plenty of legal loopholes remaining open for torture and rendition)…it felt straight out of Orwell, and offended me to my very core. Simultaneously, the new administration is saying we should not investigate and prosecute the crimes of the past administration, and instead focus on the future…one must remember that we are only supposed to prosecute crimes which have occurred in the past.

During his excellent speech in Cairo, A New Beginning, he echoed another core George W Bush principle, “I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day.

President Obama’s constitutional law background (which I was so naively counting on) does not appear to be enough for truly fundamental change, absent widespread pressure from citizens. While much of the rhetoric is still sounding good, there seem to be inadequate actions on most fronts to back it up. Since I was a supporter of the Obama campaign (knowing Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul would probably not be able to win), I still like to believe that he has good intentions deep down but we must free him from his handlers to see them enacted.

Grave Concerns About ‘State Of Emergency’ Executive Powers
Even our internet is now (publicly) being threatened with the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, by Senator John D Rockefeller IV, Chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. This would give the executive branch the power to shut down or retrieve loosely defined ‘critical’ data throughout the internet in a case of emergency (which is absolutely possible from a technical standpoint). If passed this gives the power to end our key source of free speech or fully shut down the internet as we know it.

This is only the most recent in the growing ‘emergency’ powers the executive branch has been accumulating over the past 50 years to the point where the US President can truly act as a dictator, and martial law can be imposed over every aspect of our country. Unfortunately, martial law is also much more realistic than it might sound. The military and police have become increasingly integrated across the country since 9/11, in addition to the availability of international forces if need be (North American Union, United Nations). While some would argue that we need policies in place as contingency plans, to me this argument does not hold to me. The same people providing such solutions are also creating, or at least driving us towards, the crises in which it could be ‘needed.’

The threat of martial law really hit me a month ago during the height of the bogus swine flu scare, which the World Health Organization used to practice pandemic alert level 5 (after tweaking the requirements to declare it). With George W. Bush’s Executive Directive 51 and other directives, the US President can declare a ‘state of emergency’ from this alert level (the final level 6 would have made it far more likely). That week I watched a lawyer on a FOX news show rationalizing and mentally preparing people to accept martial law should it be imposed, and now there are discussions in the media debating forced inoculations for the fall.

Even if this spring’s harmless yet unprecedented swine flu was not hatched in a US military lab, as many voices argue, I feel our world leaders and their industry counterparts have far too much control over our collective and individual fate. To me, this is yet another largely unseen example of how far we have strayed from the democracy I was taught; just how little voice we effectively have, and the potential for certain interests to force their problem on us, followed by their solution, without a care for our principles or liberties.

While I am in no way an economist, my research on our financial system as we’ve known it for the past 100 years points to its acute design for inevitable collapse. Even without ridiculous blank checks to banks (and who knows what’s in the stimulus package), we pay interest on the money which is privately printed for us, and we can therefore never break even with our collective debt. Through this inherent debt on currency, derivatives tools and exponentially growing government spending (in the past decades for tools of destruction rather than creation), there are many indicators and economic experts say our current economic collapse will shortly include the end of our fiat dollar.

Taking The Next Steps
I would like to believe we can solve all these core problems with the right kind of policy actions, even if we cannot determine what, if any, specific group(s) of individuals are enclosing this trap upon us. But I am conflicted because this strategy, as with any policy-based activist movement, it would require the broadest public mobilization. While maybe this may be a possibility given the impending financial collapse of our society, one of my key questions is if we have time before our financial collapse is combined with one state of emergency of choice to usher in a new darker age in place of a renaissance.

Furthermore, I cannot help but feel that in retrospect, our human race will be defined by whether we can resist our own self-destruction and evolve past violence and corruption, to possibly become more significant force of creation and truth in our universe.

When I hit my breaking point a month or two ago and needed to start taking action, I built a simple online database to help me catalog and aggregate the mostly mainstream articles and public records upon which these ‘conspiracy theories’ are based, or as I find more appropriate, ‘agenda analysis.’ INFOWARdocs.org now has over 2,300 links to news articles, documents (both government and corporate) and videos, organized by over 1,700 keywords, with basic options to filter and search. To get started on your research, I would advise loading the site and filtering for topics that interest you, reading some headlines, then reading the details than interest you.

So I find myself in desperate need of your counsel as to what we must do to preserve the rights and ideals we were all raised to hold most dear. I would love to be proven wrong by you on as much of this as possible, but know we are all crippled by the filters through which all evidence is processed. So I wish to recruit you to check my work, bring your perspective to the table, and to collaborate on potential solutions and strategies. Thus far, here are some of the concrete solutions I feel may give us a chance without full-blown revolution:

  • Campaign Finance Reform
    so long as the politician with the most money usually gets elected we can never shed their corruption
  • End the Federal Reserve
    so long as we have no control over, and are indebted by the printing of our own currency, we are always at least partial slaves to some banking elite
  • End Nuclear and Biological Weapons (world development and stockpiles)
    as this is the easiest and most straight-forward ways for us to destroy ourselves
  • End the Corporation
    so long as corporations are entities which are legally obligated to maximize profits for the benefit of their shareholders, we can never shed their corruption
  • End the Central Intelligence Agency (and possibly the National Security Agency)
    even if we need covertly collected intelligence, citizens cannot make informed decisions without transparency

I implore you to do as much research as you can, and join me for an initial meeting of our minds to help decide how we might best lead our generations away from Orwell’s world and towards positive and sustainable prosperity. I will be contacting you to try to organize one or two meetings between August and October at my house (maybe one on west coast if needed)…even though I understand very few will want to get involved with any of these issues (via activism), I need to gather your perspectives on these issues to determine their validity and strategies for solutions as thoroughly as possible. While sharing our ideas, it is also my hope that we will all learn a great deal and evolve our personal filters with which we each view our respective fields and lives. If you have a trusted friend who might be, it would be great to invite them too. I must thank my beloved parents and girlfriend for so patiently, rationally and respectfully debating these issues with me over the past few months, allowing me to clarify and verbalize what all of this means to me.

What do you think about a working title for these informal meetings?
2009 InfoWar and Peace Summit

Much love,
Morgan

PS. I am also posting this letter online at http://wikiworlndpeace.blogspot.com with some imbedded hyperlinks regarding certain key information mentioned.

HOMEWORK:
Requested Viewing Material For Your Review

Yes, most of this is blatant propaganda promoted by various ‘conspiracy theorists.’ But they distribute the videos for free, don’t seem to own the mainstream media, must compete with the main line to the best of their abilities, and I assume none of us have the time to read all of the books one might need to grasp these concepts. As I strive to be, please be open-minded yet skeptical of all, and investigate deeper into topics which you may find particularly interesting, offensive or alarming. I would like to discuss, and possibly re-watch, some of these films when we meet. These should be accessible online through a Google search:

1. America: Freedom to Fascism (2006, 111 minutes)
Important documentary by Aaron Russo, on the unconstitutionality of the federal income tax and the federal reserve system. Ties in a bit with the USA Patriot Act and its atrocities to our constitution.

2. The Obama Deception (2009, 111 minutes)
A decent post-partisan overview as to where we stand today as of May 15th, by Alex Jones who has also made some of the most damning documentaries of the Bushes. The only significant statement of fact I have found to be false is that Timothy Geithner, not Barack Obama, got his first job from Henry Kissinger, the majority is simply public record. All accessible source articles displayed can be quickly found in my INFOWARdocs.org database.

3. Loose Change Final Cut (2007, 130 minutes)
The brute logic, eyewitness and scientific evidence one can use to cut through the official conspiracy theory sold by the 9/11 Commission. The third version of a classic, started by some of the original 9/11 Truthers in New York, contains much updated information. An earlier edition of this film was one of the few things specifically debated by the editors of Popular Mechanics, though I have not found their arguments to hold up. All accessible source articles displayed can be quickly found in my INFOWARdocs.org database.

4. Zeitgeist: Addendum (2008, 123 minutes)
The first Zeitgeist film’s first 1/3 focusing on religion has been widely contested and discredited information, and the rest of the 9/11 info is covered elsewhere. But this sequel focuses on the inherently illogical Federal Reserve system and an extensive interview with John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. Then in the end the Venus Project advocates for a new technologically-based social system (utopia), elements of which I find quite debatable, but if nothing else, is an important thought experiment.

5. Fabled Enemies (2008, 102 minutes)
This film, by one of the makers of Loose Change, Jason Bermas, does not focus on what happened on 9/11 but who did it and where the money trails lead. It follows the intelligence ties of Osama Bin Laden, the alleged hijackers, and those who were actually detained on 9/11. All accessible source articles displayed are found in my INFOWARdocs.org database.

6. End Game – Blueprint for Global Enslavement (2007, 139 minutes)
This Alex Jones film depicts a more hard-core doomsday analysis of the publicly stated goals of the elite, covering the Bilderberg Group, North American Union, eugenics and depopulation. While the depopulation agenda is so vast and integrated it might be impossible to conclusively prove, it is nonetheless a very important concept to be familiar with. All accessible source articles displayed are found in my INFOWARdocs.org database.

7. The Capitalist Conspiracy (1969, 47 minutes)
Similar to The Obama Deception, this is not so much about evils of capitalism, but the structures controlling both sides (capitalism and communism). Amazing how long these ideas have been around and little public opinion has changed since the 60s. Slightly harder to find online, but it is there.

8. Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State (2005, 96 minutes)
This Alex Jones film provides specific examples and video footage of our country’s integration of the police and military forces since 9/11. All accessible source articles displayed are found in my INFOWARdocs.org database.
