THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

"X-Y-Z: THE MECHANIX OF AMERYCAN POLITICZ" (Or, "BAIT AND DIVIDE, SWITCH AND CONQUER")

.
FOREWARNING

Yes, right up front I’m providing advance notice that this Blog installment is lengthy. If you already fully understand that both the Democrat and Republican parties are colluding to condition America toward a tyrannical Global Socialistic State and you are already aware of how the Hegelian Dialectic is utilized in moving the nation ever Leftward, or if you don’t know about any of these things but the next episode of ‘American Idol’ is coming on in five minutes and you don’t want to miss it, then you’ll probably want to save yourself the time it would take to read the following and click off this Blog Bit now.

However, if the aforementioned items are not already well understood by you and you don’t give a damn about the next episode of ‘American Idol’, then I feel confident in saying that the information presented below will be worth the time you invest in reading it.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

Section 1) - Overview (Or, Political Reality 101)
Section 2) - My "Fascist" Friends Weigh In
Section 3) - The Nuts And Bolts Of The System
Section 4) - Bait And Divide, Switch And Conquer
Section 5) - "The Making Of A President"
Section 6) - "USAP", Sarah Palin, And Glenn Beck
Section 7) - X-Y-Z (Or, "The Hegelian Dialectic")
Section 8) - The Endgame

OVERVIEW (Or, POLITICAL REALITY 101)

There are only two differences between the Democrat and Republican parties: what they SAY they stand for, and the speed with which they install Federal tyranny over We The People in “the land of the so-called free and the home of the brave.”

However, sometimes even the latter difference is nonexistent. Despite verbally railing against government encroachment over individual civil liberties and about the need for greater economic efficiency through smaller government and more localized responsibility, in actuality, Republicans sometimes increase the cost and scope of the national government even beyond that of their liberal, Democrat predecessors. Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush come immediately to mind. “Talking” and “Doing” are two very different things – that’s the reason they’re spelled differently.

Isn’t it a bit ironic that “Neoconservatism” (that which we call “the Republican party” today) isn’t really conservative at all? Neoconservatism is just another form of Big Government Fascism, but this particular brand of fascism dresses in a suit and tie and seeks global dominance through military intervention and corporate regulation, whereas the liberal, Democrat brand promotes Big Government Fascism while dressed in tie-dyed clothing and seeks global dominance through military intervention and ecological regulation. Your choices are Military intervention with either Corporate or Ecological regulation . . . vote for the death of your choice, Amerika.

In the process of “ramping up” (to borrow one of Sarah Palin’s favorite terms) Federal tyranny, the Republican Neoconservatives pretend to be primarily concerned about protecting the rights of the person. The Democrats ramp up Federal tyranny as well, but while doing so, they pretend to be primarily concerned about protecting the rights of the people. In other words, “group rights.” But regardless, Orwellian Big Brotherism progresses right on schedule and EVERYONE’S Constitutional rights get flushed down the toilet.

Every once in awhile, I will write something to a friend in a personal Email, or I will post a comment on a Blog installment, and then afterwards think to myself: That might make a pretty worthwhile addition to a Blog Bit.

And so occasionally I will incorporate a sentence or even a paragraph that I have written elsewhere into a Blog posting that I’m working on. Rarer still are those times when I take something I’ve written elsewhere and actually build an entire Blog Bit around it. Such as I’m doing here.

Back in early November of last year, I posted a Blog Bit titled ‘Impalin’ Palin’. The discussion that this installment engendered in the “Comment” section amongst my friends and I was perhaps the best exchange in my time as a Blogspot blogger. I later got the idea to use these comments as the nucleus for yet another political Blog Bit.

Below are those November 2009 comments which I have transported here. I have done minor editing, such as removing some of the more personal remarks which didn’t really pertain to the general theme under discussion, etc. And that theme being the essential sameness of both major political parties in the United States – Democrat and Republican. Since these comments were previously posted in a public forum, I feel no hesitation in reposting them here. I thank all of my friends who took part in the discussion; I found their comments so valuable that they inspired a whole new F-FFF installment.

MY “FASCIST” FRIENDS WEIGH IN

Nov. 2, 2009
MOUSIEMARC (of the Blog
Historic Words’) said:

… Glenn Beck makes a lot of good points but ALWAYS falls short of naming The Federal Reserve as THE PROBLEM. I remember watching a town hall meeting with moms on his show. A mother who happens to work for Ron Paul’s ‘Campaign For Liberty’ started to mention The Federal Reserve. Glenn quickly cut her off and stated, "I don't want to get into that right now." That is not an exact quote (coming from memory) but it’s close. I was a little on the fence with him until he showed his hand there. However, I know people who hang on his every word. He even had a segment where he stated that after we go bankrupt the government will probably back a new currency by taking our property rights and will ask China and Russia to help squash civil unrest. They would be promised our resources. Did they get a little cocky there and show their hand? It won't matter because this is a done deal anyway.

I have heard Michael Savage mention the Bilderberg group in passing. However, he once got a caller who started to mention Carroll Quigleys book, "Tragedy and Hope." He quickly cut him off and stated, "What do you think I care about some book you've read? What do I care about someone else’s book?" He then went to the next caller. How uneventful unless you’re someone like me who knows what’s in that book. I used to listen to that show all the time, read a couple of his books, and at that moment I find out he's a fraud. I began to suspect it but that moment confirmed it.

Below is a quote from ‘Tragedy and Hope’ that I got from Freedom Force International’s site. It seems to fit your blog piece:


"The National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern Establishment assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes, moved closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and platforms, although the process was concealed as much as possible, by the revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back to the Civil War). … The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy. … Either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies."

Of course, Freedom Force also talks about the the Quigley Formula. Which is in short to make your own opposition. Instead of waiting for genuine grass root efforts to rise up, just create false grass root movements like Glenn Beck or Michael Savage. They make good points and even tell the truth. However, they work for companies that are owned by these people and they have to stay in line to keep their jobs. People like Beck and Savage probably justify it somehow to themselves. "Well at least I'm giving some truth. If I wasn't here no one would have any clue."

WRONG!!!!

If you weren't there a real genuine movement would rise up. But … you accept favors from these people and [give] only half the message. People believe you’re for real, so they feel they don't have to do it ‘cause Beck’s doing it’, and they'll just follow Beck like everyone else in the Patriot Movement, right? That’s the scam because Beck’s going to make sure we lose. It becomes obvious once you see it. However, from personal experience I can tell you, it takes people who are informed and [it takes] … time to come to this reality. Though given the events to come, I'm sure they'll get some reality to wake them up soon.

God Bless,

STEPHEN T. McCARTHY (Yours Truly) said:

SPOT ON, Br'er Marc!

It's funny that you posted that particular quote from ‘Tragedy And Hope’ because I was thinking of posting on F-F F F that same quote as my next Blog Bit, as a follow-up to this one. But you just saved me the trouble. Thanks!

Yes, Brother, you've definitely got the scam figured out. The dirty little secret about today's so-called "conservatives" can be found not in what they say but in what they always seem to leave unsaid. I pointed this out clearly in my previous Blog Bit here at F-FFF titled "#1 Rule Of Politics", but since no one reads my Blog, it won't make any difference to anyone.

And then when the White House makes a lot of noise about trying to shut down Fox News, it only further convinces the viewers of Fox News that they are really involved with the real patriotic counterculture. But of course, the truth is that the pseudo-conservative Fox News is just the other side of the New World Order coin. As you said, they exist to control what might otherwise turn into a genuinely dangerous conservative element. It's all about a formula for control that could be called "Bait And Divide, Switch And Conquer." Hey, that's not too bad, if I do say so myself. That saying has within it the seed of a future Blog Bit.
Great comment, Brother Marc.

OL’ WARRIOR POET said:

Another good bit, STM.

It's the conservative brand sheeple that disappoint me most of all. They still think the "talkin’ heads" are on their side and have their best interest at heart.

They think that Rush, Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly and the rest are "just like them", and are their voice against the "liberal media". IT'S ALL THE SAME MEDIA!!!

ARLEE BIRD (of the Blog ‘Tossing It Out’) said:

As promised, Stephen, here's my two cents on Sarah Palin and all the other people you mention. And I'm sure it won't mean much to you or your commenters because, let's face it, I don't study it and analyze it as much as you do but I respect that you do. I enjoy reading what you all have to say though.

My take on the issue is that the absolute hard line in either direction is not going to work because most of us uninformed ignoramuses are more toward the middle. It's politics and it's about ratings or winning. There will always be some kind of collusion between sides because diluting the issues - giving a dose of sugar with the vinegar - will make the whole package more palatable. So Palin or Huckaby or Beck or Medved, I'll take them over some more extreme left wing agenda.

But what do I know other than I'll take a Buster Bar over a Dilly Bar any day and if I do have to settle for a Dilly Bar then it better be chocolate. (If anyone doesn't get my reference then check my blog entry about Texas Stop Signs.)

STEPHEN T. McCARTHY said:

Hey, thanks for your comment, rLEE-b.

However, I don't believe there is any "middle." In the U.S.A. there is one coin which has two sides: One side of the coin is "The American Way" (a.k.a. "Constitutionalism" or “The Rule Of Law”) which is the standard set by our Founding Fathers, and it is represented by the great system they established in spirit by The Declaration of Independence and in law by the U.S. Constitution. This is the framework that quickly made us the envy of every other nation in the world.

The other side of the coin is "Socialism" of one type or another from, say, Keynesianism to Marxism. Marxism, of course, being Communism - and Communism has probably been best described as "Socialism in a hurry."

In this country there is no real middle ground; there's only Constitutionalism or Socialism in varying degrees.

Now, a major problem is that there also exists an unelected body called The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and it has been well established that the true goal of the CFR is to create a single, totalitarian world government based on Socialism. In other words, “The American Way” of life must be destroyed to make way for this World Government (often referred to as "The New World Order”).

Unfortunately, for all intents and purposes, the CFR directs both major political parties in this country, as well as Congress, and it pretty much sets our foreign policy. For about a century now we have been shifted ever Leftward (into Socialism) primarily by use of the Hegelian Dialectic. The two political parties have the same aim but they know that We The People (if we caught on) would never support it, so a false front "political war" has been established to make the people choose sides: Conservatism = Republicans; Progressivism (which is really Liberalism, which is really overt Socialism) = Democrats. But the truth is that both parties really represent nothing other than Socialism in two different speeds.

Or as my friend Br'er Marc (Mousiemarc) put it so perfectly once: It's like smoking cigarettes. You can acquire your lung cancer quickly by smoking unfiltered cigarettes, or you can acquire your lung cancer more gradually by smoking filtered cigarettes.

It translates into the political realm like this: You can acquire your totalitarian Socialism quickly by smoking unfiltered Democrat, or you can acquire your totalitarian Socialism more gradually by smoking filtered Republican. Either way, you invite the poison into your system and the end result will be death of “The American Way” of life. In other words, the political war between the Republicans and Democrats is a FAKE FIGHT (and both parties know it!) It’s all for public consumption, designed to keep the Americonned People deceived and unaware of where this WILL eventually lead: Totalitarian World Government essentially based upon the Keynesian model.


A superb overview of all this can be found in the small book (only 130 pages of text) titled ‘THE NAKED CAPITALIST’ by W. Cleon Skousen. Used copies of it can be found online for only a few dollars. I’d say start there, but buckle your seatbelt and hang on to your hat; you’re in for a surprising, E-Ticket ride!

Good answer, what else can I say? I am not as well studied on these matters as you and Mousie, but I sure admire you for it. I'm conservative in tendency but from the way you put it all across we're all doomed no matter what. And so is the way of the world and man.

I won't let it bring me down ‘cause it's only castles burning.

STEPHEN T. McCARTHY said:

Yes, Brother, we are doomed, primarily because our politicians, our talking heads on television, and our pundits in the print media and talk radio - of both Socialist stripes (blatant socialist Democrats and pseudo-conservative Republicans) refuse to either tell The People the truth (Democrat leaders) or the WHOLE truth (Republican leaders).

And, of course, We The People don't really want to hear the truth anyway because we are so busy stuffing ourselves with cheesecake and Duff beer while being preoccupied by mind-rotting "entertainment" (bread and circuses).We simply accept our statist chains and passively follow (or as in the case of "Tea Parties", more rambunctiously follow) our deceitful leaders to our inglorious execution. But we didn't have to go out this way.

In case you're interested, below are Blog Bits I'd previously posted which elaborate on two of the major points I addressed above. This is a "nutshell" look at two forms of Socialism - the Russian version and the American version: Marx Vs. Keynes: Comparative Socialism In Miniature

And this is a clearer explanation of why I dislike and distrust what passes for conservatism all across the talk radio dial: #1 Rule Of Politics

I still say you're better off reading Skousen's ‘THE NAKED CAPITALIST’, but even as inexpensive as that slim book is, my writing is the "cheapest".

THE MAN WHO STEPPED ON CHICKENFOOT (or, The Great L.C. from the Blog ‘DiscConnected’) said:

Stephen-
Sadly, if the Repubs are dumb enough to nominate Sarah Palin in 2012, she will fall before the messiah as he wins a second term and further scuttles the future of this country (unless of course those Mayan prophecies turn out to be dead on).

The 'Pubs need some new blood. Ron Paul's message was striking a nerve with young folk. If the Repubs could find a like-minded soul who was maybe their side of fifty, maybe things would change. Otherwise, I think the great god Obama will continue to mesmerize the youth and minorities, and will score both the liberal vote and the vote of people who maybe wanted a change from the same old Repub mess and see this as a way to get that, and prove they are politically correct and not rascist.

But by then, the Chinese will stop lending The Great One money, and we'll all need to learn Mandarin anyway.

THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THE SYSTEM

In the remainder of this Blog Bit I will elaborate on some of the statements that were made above. To begin with, many years of very intensive study of some highly credible sources has proven to me that the American political scene is governed like this:

International Bankers essentially control the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) which represents the Bankers’ corporate, political and media interests. The CFR, for all intents and purposes, directs both major American political parties, the Democrats and the Republicans, in both foreign and domestic policies.

Naturally, that’s putting very succinctly a political paradigm that is in reality somewhat more complex than that. Nevertheless, minute details aside, this is indeed how the American political scene basically operates. This represents the “Active Ingredients” in the “Product.”

BAIT AND DIVIDE, SWITCH AND CONQUER

The ultimate goal in American politics is to dismantle, piece by piece if necessary, the U.S. Constitution and its Bill Of Rights and to replace it with a Socialistic World Government.

In order to achieve this goal, the American People must be convinced that it is in their best interests to scrap the American system for the newly evolving global system. In other words, the American People and the form of government established by their Founding Fathers must be conquered. The first order of business in conquering the American voters is to “Divide” them.

To do this, their “leaders” must first set the “Bait”. The Republicans decry the eroding of Individual rights and the corrupting of the Capitalist system. The Democrats protest injustices against select Groups and insist that those greedy Capitalists should spread the wealth around. Both of these arguments are meant to appeal to different mind-sets and “Bait” those sharing these world-views. As the individual takes the bait offered, he finds himself aligned with one group or the other: Republicans or Democrats. Candidates and representatives from both parties know what they need to say in order to attract and retain their potential vote and support groups.

Democrats primarily apppeal to the bleeding-heart emotion-based voters and those perceiving themselves to be disenfranchised. In other words, mostly to women and minorities. And the party says, “We are going to make the government help you!”

The Republicans reach out to the voter block which is more individualistic and objective; proponents of ‘individual rights’ and ‘limited government’. And the party says, “We are going to make the government get off your back!”

Both types of American Voters have now taken the bait and have been effectively “Divided” from each other.

As long as The People are divided and bickering amongst themselves, it’s not likely that they will ever raise their heads above the fray to see who the real enemy is. Keep The People involved in political warfare, party versus party, and infighting against one another, and they will never notice the barbed wire being wrapped around the battlefield where they are engaged in their combat. Then, at some point when the time is right, the leaders of the factions will announce that the war is over and all combatants are prisoners in the Global Concentration Camp. That’s what is really going down, folks; the sheeple are being encircled with barbed wire while they argue, sleep, and watch TV.

However, since tyrannical Big Brother Global Government is the ultimate objective, it’s important that the group opposing centralization of power and overbearing government regulation (i.e., the Republicans) is not allowed to be very successful. That’s where the “Switch” in the “Bait and Divide, Switch and Conquer” comes in.

Having been divided from those with the “more government” Democrat mind-set, the Republican voters are now carefully managed and controlled to ensure that they aren’t actually allowed to implement all of the reforms they are constantly promised by their Handlers – they being the movers and shakers within the Republican party.

The Republican leaders talk a great game but are careful to never reveal too much (like who established the Federal Reserve System, how and why; what the CFR is and what it seeks). They will speak often about unnecessary government departments and a need for fiscal responsibility, but once voted into power at either the Executive or Congressional level, they will immediately turn their backs on all that they had previously claimed to represent. In reality, the voters are given a choice between Socialist-R and Socialist-D. The Council on Foreign Relations doesn’t care which brand of Socialism the Americans elect because the CFR directs both camps.

This is the reason that the size, scope and cost of government has never been reduced regardless of whether it was being controlled by Democrats or Republicans. Smaller government is the exact opposite of what remains the secret goal of BOTH political parties. The voters are Baited; Divided; and in the case of the Republicans, they get their “products” switched; and in the end, all of the American Principles – Constitutionalism, Rule Of Law, Individual Rights, a Republican form of government – will be conquered.

To you registered Republicans I ask this: Did you never question why it was that even when your party won the elections the longstanding Republican “smaller government” platform was never installed? Did you never notice that a pattern had developed, as if some secret force was preventing your party from fulfilling its promises even when the majority of voters had sided with you?

Did you REALLY believe that it was only by accidental or unpremeditated shifts in legislation and domestic policy that the United States of America somehow wound up moving so far to the Left of where the country once stood? Did you REALLY think that our slide into Socialism was just a natural evolution or political progression? You thought all of this Leftward movement occurred without forethought and lots of planning and manipulation from influential people behind the scenes – even within your own political party? Or did you ever pause long enough to even consider this at all?

“THE MAKING OF A PRESIDENT”

This next section of the Blog Bit contains some excerpts from the book ‘Philip Dru: Administrator’ written by Edward Mandell House and first published in 1912.

Edward Mandell House was most likely the single most influential man of American politics of the last 100 years. He was an important advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt and the right-hand man to President Woodrow Wilson. House was no outsider nor a simple speculator of the inside story on political intrigue. He was the real deal when it came to behind-the-scenes manipulation.

‘Philip Dru: Administrator’ was ostensibly a work of fiction, but in the poorly written novel, Edward Mandell House revealed the way things really work in Washington D.C. and the end result that the political conspirators are aiming for. Read these excerpts and contemplate long and deep about what House is really saying here. And if you had no prior knowledge of last century’s most important political character, you might also want to ask yourself just what your qualifications were when you were casting a vote in the last presidential election:

Chapter XII – “Selwyn Seeks A Candidate”
Selwyn then began carefully scrutinizing such public men in the States known as presidential cradles, as seemed to him eligible. By a process of elimination he centered upon two that appeared desirable.

One was James R. Rockland, recently elected Governor of a State of the Middle West. The man had many of the earmarks of a demagogue, which Selwyn readily recognized, and he therefore concluded to try him first.
. . .
Selwyn settled back in his chair, nodding his approval and telling himself that he would not need to seek further for his candidate.

At Rockland’s earnest solicitation he remained over another day. The Governor gave him copies of his speeches and messages, so that he could assure himself that there was no serious flaw in his public record.

Selwyn cautioned him about changing his attitude too suddenly. “Go on, Rockland, as you have done in the past. It will not do to see the light too quickly. You have the progressives with you now, keep them and I will let the conservatives know that you think straight and may be trusted.

“We must consult frequently together,” he continued, “but cautiously. There is no need for anyone to know that we are working together harmoniously. I may even get some of the conservative papers to attack you judiciously. It will not harm you. But, above all, do nothing of importance without consulting me.

“I am committing the party and the Nation to you, and my responsibility is a heavy one, and I owe it to them that no mistakes are made.”

“You may trust me, Senator,” said Rockland. “I understand perfectly.”

Chapter XIV – “The Making Of A President”
Selwyn now devoted himself to the making of enough conservative senators to control comfortably that body. The task was not difficult to a man of his sagacity with all the money he could spend.
. . .
It was a fascinating game to Selwyn. It appealed to his intellectual side far more than it did to his avarice. He wanted to govern the Nation with an absolute hand, and yet not be known as the directing power.
. . .
In the meantime his senators were being elected, the Rockland sentiment was steadily growing and his nomination was finally brought about by the progressives fighting vigorously for him and the conservatives yielding a reluctant consent. It was done so adroitly that Rockland would have been fooled himself, had not Selwyn informed him in advance of each move as it was made.

“USAP”, SARAH PALIN, AND GLENN BECK

Personalities are built up by the media and other political production machines behind the scenes, and these personalities are carefully groomed to appeal to the political factions and give the desperate voters the impression that a knight on a white horse is on the horizon and riding to their rescue.

Of course, over time, it eventually becomes apparent that Last Year’s Savior is just another politician and then the machines replace him or her with This Year’s Model, which gets the voter blocks all enthused and reenergized for another round of Elect ‘N’ Renounce.

Three things I’m certain of: Despite all of the messianic allusions, Barack “USAP” Obama is not near smart enough to be the anti-Christ; Sarah Palin is just another politician who will ultimately disappoint her followers; and if Glenn Beck really represented any threat to the status quo, he damn sure would be removed from Fox News and stripped of his highly influential teaching position at C.B.U. (Conservative Brainwashing University a.k.a. “Fox News”).

First, let’s look at “USAP”. He came in as the most unrealistically praised presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy. And being the first Black U.S. President only raised the bar of expectations and the “hopes” even higher. PROMISE: That he was a new kind of politician offering an “unprecedented level of openness” or “transparency.” But here’s what the American People really got . . .

REALITY: He is so opaque that he won’t even allow the American People to view his original, authentic birth certificate to satisfy the demands of the U.S. Constitution.

Sarah Palin is “the new kid of promise on the block” but the real Palin is already showing through. PROMISE: That she is a new kind of “rogue” politician, honest and intent on cleaning up the mess in the political realm. But here’s what the American People would really be getting . . .

REALITY: [S]he flunked on the issue of honesty. An interview with ABC’s Charles Gibson zeroed in on Palin’s statement, made at the Republican National Convention and elsewhere, “I told Congress, ‘Thanks, but no thanks, on that Bridge to Nowhere.’ If our state wanted to build a bridge, we were going to build it ourselves.” In fact, Gibson pointed out, she was lobbying for federal funding for the bridge before she was against it, and was against it only after it had become a political embarrassment. Well, every Governor lobbies for projects for her state, Palin countered in a desperate, artless dodge. But Gibson, to his credit, focused in on the duplicity of pretending to have been against it all along. Sometimes those doggone network news people, for all their liberal biases, get it right.
~ from The New American magazine,
“Rogue” Or Ruse? by Jack Kenny.
Jan. 4, 2010.

Glenn Beck is just about the goofiest looking dude this side of Family Matters. Put glasses and shoe polish on his face and you’ve almost got Steve Urkel:
.

.
. . [Steve Urkel]
.

.
. [Glenn Berckel]
.
But I suppose it’s not right for me to condemn Beck over his doofus look since he didn’t request it and there’s not a lot he can do about it. So, instead, I’ll focus on condemning him for his deception.

Now, I’ll admit that, as with Rush Limbaugh, I find that I often agree with what Glenn Beck says, but also like Mr. Limboob, it’s more what Beck DOESN’T say than what he does say that bothers me. And in some ways, Beck is even sneakier about hiding his Neoconservative roots than is Ol’ Rushbo. At least he pretends to dislike the Republicans as well as the Democrats, unlike Limboob who has always come across as that loud, obnoxious blow-hard in the Republican Rah!-Rah! rooting section.

But Glenn Beck, like all Neoconservative frontmen and frontwomen, dishes out his criticism selectively, being careful not to spill all of the beans to his audience.

The October 26, 2009 edition of The New American magazine contained a review of Glenn Beck's popular book 'Common Sense' in which writer Alex Newman made the following point:

After highlighting a variety of very real problems in the book, Beck chooses a new, unrelated, and surprising enemy: those who promote the notion of a global conspiracy. In an attempt to equate them with people who advocate violence, he cautions readers to “stay away from these individuals and those ideas” and also says that they “will eventually seek to impose their rule and lifestyle on all of us.” But after warning about those who claim a global conspiracy is afoot, he goes on to expose the increasing efforts to centralize power at the global level through the United Nations and assorted treaties. Does he really believe that the machinations of the global elites to consolidate power through the UN and other institutions of world order have nothing to do with — dare we say it — conspiracy? Here again, common sense is lacking in Glenn Beck’s ‘Common Sense’.

Beck may occasionally “attack the Federal Reserve judiciously but it will not harm them” (to paraphrase Edward Mandell House from his chapter “Selwyn Seeks A Candidate”). That doesn’t cost Beck very much and will only add to his seeming credibility.

But when is Beck going to go full “Constitutional” and tell his audience that the Federal Reserve was established by International Bankers and that it is still operated by International Bankers who have no real allegiance to the United States of America? When is Beck going to tell the American People exactly what the Federal Reserve does, why it does what it does, and why it MUST be abolished before this country can ever possibly recover? When is Glenn Beck going to tell the American People what the Council on Foreign Relations is and how it essentially dictates our foreign and domestic policy and influences the vast majority of what you see or hear on television and radio? When is Glenn Beck going to tell the truth, the WHOLE truth, and nothing but the truth?

Yeah, that’s right: never! Telling the truth to the American People could only cause change – REAL change – to come about. And real change is the very last thing that the Neoconservatives want.

No, Beck will continue to spray a little criticism here and there, while carefully avoiding “The Big Picture”. He will continue to refer to people like Alan Keyes and Philip Berg, who feel Americans have a right to see USAP’s birth certificate in order to satisfy the demands of the U.S. Constitution - the so-called “Birthers” – as “fringe elements”, “anarchists and fascists” and “crazy people who don’t really like America”.

Make no mistake, Beck would hate to see USAP removed from office over the birth certificate issue because that Marxist in the White House serves a useful purpose as a divisive opponent for the Neocons to exploit.

Glenn Beck will agree with the so-called “9/11 Truthers” that there are “some good questions that haven’t been answered” about the 9/11 terrorist acts, and he will then add “but ‘Did George Bush blow up the World Trade Center?’ is not one of them”, thus mocking and trivializing the 9/11 Truth movement at the same time he acknowledges that some valid but unspecified questions remain unanswered. What he won’t mention, you’ll notice, is HOW MANY good questions have been left unanswered and what those questions specifically are.

With friends like Glenn Beck, true Conservatives (read: “genuine Constitutionalists”) hardly need enemies.

Thanks anyway, Glenn, but until such time as you decide to come fully clean with the American People and tell them what is REALLY going on behind the scenes, we don’t need your help. Go get a facelift or something.

X-Y-Z (Or, “THE HEGELIAN DIALECTIC”)

The Hegelian Dialectic used in the realm of politics is a form of conflict resolution in which a condition (“Thesis” a.k.a. “Z”) is challenged or endangered by an opposing force (“Antithesis” a.k.a. “X”) and culminates in a resolution or compromise (“Synthesis” a.k.a. “Y”).

Today, we have an ideal example of The Hegelian Dialectic which we can look at in the form of ObamaCare. It is agreed upon at a certain level by our Social/Political Engineers behind the scenes that Socialized Medicine is the goal for a variety of reasons. But getting there can’t be accomplished in one big leap due to some citizen opposition. When a condition must be brought about in stages, the Elites, who manipulate our landscape for their own benefit, will utilize the Hegelian model.

The Republicans, pretending to fight for The Individual and professing a wish to retain the status quo, have set up at position “Z”. The Democrats, pretending to fight for The People and professing the need for an entirely reorganized and outright Socialized medical system, have set up at position “X”.

(Left) X ----------------------------------- Z (Right)

Everyone knows that a significant segment of the American People is still a bit squeamish about overt Socialism, so the move to “X” will have to be accomplished by degrees.

What will ultimately occur with the ObamaCare proposition is a compromise. The medical/insurance system we presently have will indeed be altered, but not to the degree that the Democrats are calling for. The Republicans will give some ground while engaged in “the good fight” and the Democrats will reluctantly accept a position to the right of their desired “X”. When the pseudo-fighting is all over, when the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared, you will find that we will have been moved left of “status quo Z” and met the Democrats at Y. The compromise at Y will be a semi-socialized system. This fake fight will eventually lead to this:

X >>> compromise >>> Y <<< compromise <<< Z

Afterwards, the Republicans will be able to say, "We defended America against the Liberals and managed to avoid X." The Democrats will be able to say, "We fought against the Right-Wing Extremists and we managed to get Y for The People."

But the next time this issue is brought to the table, the Democrats will set up at “W” and the Republicans will be defending the NEW status quo at “Y”.

(Left) W ---------------------------------- Y (Right)

After the phony fight is over and the two parties have made their compromises toward the “center”, the healthcare issue will stand at “X” which, of course, is where the socialistic Democrats had intended to take us all along and the point that the Republicans knew they would eventually reach during the process of “yielding a reluctant consent” (to again borrow a phrase from Edward Mandell House).

W >>> compromise >>> X <<< compromise <<< Y

Make no mistake about it, both political parties knew all along that our destination would be “X” because it was determined by the Council on Foreign Relations which guides (read: “directs”) both the Democrats and the Republicans.

This formula is played out over and over again in both the Big Colosseum (at the National level) and in the smaller arenas (in the state legislatures). And this, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the most ingenious tactics by which our elected representatives have been able, over time, to move this country ever Leftward into Socialism and Big Brother Statism.

A variant of this Hegelian Dialectic model in which both political parties work in concert might look something like this:

Let us suppose that Uncle Sam sought to gain control of a segment of the Middle East in order to control the flow of oil reserves or for any other strategical geopolitical purpose. The American Government could establish justification for a Middle East invasion by maneuvering according to the X-Y-Z Hegelian formula.

The “Z” or Thesis would be to create a frightened American citizenry concerned about its safety

The “X” or Antithesis would be to promote the idea that a madman in the area that Uncle Sam hopes to invade has weapons of mass destruction and is, one way or another, a genuine threat to American security.

The “Y” or Synthesis is to invade the madman’s territory, take him into captivity and install a puppet regime or new “democratic” government in that area which has a more favorable view of American interests.

By establishing a condition (Z), and by setting up its opposition (X), and by proposing a compromise or resolution (Y), any predetermined outcome can be surreptitiously stage-managed by a government in order to move the masses in any desired direction.

My Mother (God love her) passed away in 2005, but I still have her old Social Security card. Printed on the card just below the line upon which she signed her name is this: “For Social Security Purposes * Not For Identification”

Of course, these days, one can scarcely visit a restroom in a Federal Building without first having to provide their Social Security number for identification. So, how did you reach this point where you are constantly required by your Big Brother Government to “show your papers”? Take a guess. Anyone? It’s as easy as X-Y-Z.

How have they been able to get away with this unnoticed for so long? That’s easy! One can put anything over on a populace that, rather than safeguarding its civil liberties, wastes its time watching Survivor, American Idol and Buffy The Vampire Slayer when not reading fluff fiction by Dan Brown, John Grisham, J. K. Rowling and all the others.

THE ENDGAME

Once a person comprehends the targeted “Endgame”, which is Global Government designed and orchestrated by a world body of wealthy Elites, all of the assumed stupidity and insanity emanating from Washington D.C. on a regular basis suddenly takes on a very rational, understandable, and in fact, even predictable character.

A stupid person doesn’t become influential in Washington D.C. and non-stupid people don’t consistently do stupid things. The experienced Chess Player who makes what appears to you to be illogical moves on the board is in fact playing the game of chess at an advanced level beyond your comprehension. Odds are that you aren’t far from being checkmated.

If you think they’re dumb in Washington, you’re the REAL dummy, and the upcoming, smug pronouncement of “global checkmate” will soon confirm that.

Ladies and gentlemen! - all off for ‘Collapsing Dollar’.
Next stop: ‘Global Currency’.

MOTEL 6 & TACO BELL CAN'T SAVE US

.
A few weeks ago, my old buddy Cranium sent the following little story to me in an Email. It’s undoubtedly making the rounds as I type this, so some of you may have already seen it, but for those who haven’t . . .

A SLOW DAY IN TEXAS

It's a slow day in a little East Texas town. The sun is beating down, and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a tourist from back east is driving through town. He stops at the motel and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one in which to spend the night.

As soon as the man walks upstairs, the owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on credit.

The hooker rushes to the motel and pays off her room bill with the motel owner.

The motel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter.

At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, picks up the $100 bill, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, and leaves town.

No one produced anything. No one earned anything.

However, the whole town is now out of debt and looks to the future with a lot more optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is conducting business today.

I will add to this, however, that what if the tourist never comes to town because times are hard and he doesn’t have the extra funds for travelling like he once did?

That is where the country is really heading in this imagined scenario. The Dog Days Of Depression will soon be upon us. And why? Lots of reasons. But not the least of them is that this nation no longer produces anything of real substance - meaning, we don’t generate our own wealth. Company owners want cheap labor to maximize profits and American consumers want products as cheaply priced as possible and dividends on their stock purchases. And so, businesses that want to remain competitive flee the U.S. and reestablish themselves over seas, making use of the cheap (and sometimes “slave”) labor.

While the prosperity of America plummets because American workers are laid off and left unemployed, China we are making wealthy by spending the money we acquire through service oriented businesses like Motel 6 on foreign-made electronics and building supplies. China, by the way, hates us and is undoubtedly thinking:

Give ‘em enough rope . . .
