The Lies of Our Leaders
Americans believe it's no longer
important to tell the truth
by John Kaminski
President Bush and virtually the entire American power structure lied to
the whole world when they said Iraq possessed weapons of mass
destruction that were an imminent threat to the safety of the so-called
Now beyond any doubt, these assertions have since been exposed as
falsehoods. Still, few Americans really give a damn, and business goes
on, in the foreshadow of a massive worldwide economic collapse, as
President Bush and virtually the entire American power structure
lied when they said we needed to invade Afghanistan to bring to justice
the alleged perpetrators of the 9/11 horror. Shortly after the invasion
began, Gen. Tommy Franks announced it wasn't important to capture the
so-called ringleader, Osama bin Laden, even as the Afghanis' Taliban
government offered to furnish him for trial in a neutral country. The
real objective, Franks said during the attack, was to subdue the whole
With the fictional al-Qaeda network still being used as a pretext
for permanent war against the entire world by the United States and bin
Laden still uncaptured, it has become obvious to everyone that the
reason for obliterating Afghanistan with nuclear weapons and murdering
tens of thousands of innocent people was something other than capturing
a suspected terrorist, although none of us are quite sure what that
reason was. Talk of Enron, oil pipelines and geopolitical strategies are
generally censored from the television news.
The situation is identical is Iraq. What was the purpose of blasting
several thousand innocents into heaven when the situation it produced is
actually more of a threat to our security than was the continued
dictatorship of Saddam Hussein? None of us are quite sure what that
reason was, although we all have our favorite suspicions: oil, Israel,
expenditure of military stockpiles and creation of lucrative contracts
for corporate supporters of the war machine to revive a disintegrating
Those two lies - justifying depraved mass murder in two defenseless
countries - now stand as the ranking horrors in American history. In the
227 years of our history, from the smallpox blankets of Colonial days to
Waco, America has done nothing worse (although many military adventures,
notably the Philippines in 1899 and Vietnam in the the 1960s, were
almost as bad and unjustifiable).
But the real question as America sinks into the suffocating hell of
a totalitarian dictatorship is this.
If our leaders have been proved to be liars about the sick and
sinful destruction of humanity in Afghanistan and Iraq, why do a
majority of Americans still accept what these same lying leaders said
about the 9/11 atrocity, that it was the work of foreign terrorists who
envied our freedom! As Gerard Holmgren once so aptly said, this is the
most ridiculous of all conspiracy theories to believe.
To a special few, responsibility for the 9/11 butchery has always
been obvious. Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote about the need for it in a book,
and the Republican-dominated Project for a New American Century
recommended it as a desirable event for achieving its goals.
But most simpleton Americans are afraid to even contemplate such a
frightening possibility. They would prefer to believe the lie, without
really realizing what will happen to them if they do.
In the history of the world, there has never been a bigger lie than
9/11, yet most Americans still cling in closed-minded terror to the
official story, swallow their pride at airports as minimum-wage fascists
probe their private parts, stick flag decals on their cars in hopes they
won't be pulled over and jailed for something they don't expect by
Ashcroft's new stormtroopers, and watch in numbed banality as the
official government investigation begins by saying they already know who
did it, so there's no sense investigating that.
Americans have swallowed the lie whole-hog that we need to beef up
security because there are terrorists in our midst, when the obvious
fact is that the terrorists reside in Washington, and are terrorizing
the whole world, with the eager help of your neighbors, the corrupt
local police and corrupt local judges, who accept what their superiors
order them to do just as the guards at Auschwitz did.
Let that one roll through your mind: American cops are now just the
guards at Auschwitz, participating in the elimination of all those who
won't participate in the American master plan of enslaving the world.
Can you say death chamber at Guantanamo with no real trial?
How can this possibly be happening? How can Americans have gone
brain-dead all at once? It didn't happen overnight, I can tell you. From
the Kennedy assassination onward, Americans have been conditioned to
accept phony excuses for political crimes as protests and questions are
all blunted in a mind-numbing miasma of bureaucratic mazes. So everyone
gave up trying to ask questions, and rationalized their indifference as
not critical to my survival. Time to guess again.
Even more disturbing than the murderous plans of Bush and his
petronazi gang of Zionist manipulators is the silent acquiescence of the
so-called opposition. These "liberal" Democrats CREATED the Patriot Act,
which castrates our Constitution. These gutless bureaucrats, ever
mindful of the need to attract corporate campaign contributions, went
along with Bush's invasions for fear of losing the votes of mindless,
flag-waving fascist Americans.
Consider the Democratic opposition for a moment: Hillary Clinton,
Kerry, Lieberman, Gephardt, Edwards, Dean, Mosely-Braun, Sharpton - all
but one of the Democratic candidates BACKED the military moves of Bush.
And all of them - no exceptions - endorse the lies we have been told
about 9/11, as well as the fiction that Israel is a benevolent
I get a big laugh out of all these calls for petitions on various
issues. Ha. And the same goes double for all this talk about the next
election. Ha ha. The elections of 2000 proved Americans no longer have
elections. It doesn't matter who you vote for. Who they want to win will
win, and they have both the technological expertise and the cash on hand
to make it happen. Just ask any Supreme Court justice.
Take your presidential candidate and stuff him. The American system
of democracy is dead. The presidential campaign is a sideshow to delude
the American populace into thinking they still have choice about what
Bulletin: they don't.
No one in Congress is telling the truth (OK, you might find one or
two who are telling the truth about SOME things, one less without Paul
Wellstone, who was clearly murdered).
No candidate for any office anywhere in the United States is saying
that 9/11 was a hoax, a cynical gambit to scare the American people into
accepting police state measures. That's why no candidate now running for
any office is telling the truth.
No one who thinks of running public office can seriously entertain
the notion they can fix anything. Because to fix anything, you have to
dig into the big problems that keep the war machine afloat, principally
the pervasive influence of Judaism and Zionism, which have fatally
infected most of the societies in the world with their manipulative
brand of behavioral bullshit, and undermined morality everywhere. When
morality is relative, evil prevails, because temptation and corruption
are the human conditions.
No one running for public office will begin to address the obvious
issue that 9/11 was aimed at defaming Muslims, thereby legitimizing two
horrible American crimes: the Israeli genocide of the Palestinians, and
the conquest of all the oil resources in the world.
And when the religions themselves have grown corrupt by their own
power over people, there is no hope, anarchy follows and chaos triumphs.
There is no hope. That is the situation we now face.
Eventually, after thousands of photos of bloodied bodies, after all
the uteruses of our soldiers' wives are bleeding from the effects of
radioactive ammunition, after you realize that one day you are out of
money and there's nowhere to get more because the fat cats have stolen
it all and surrounded themselves with Wackenhut wackos, you'll come to
the realization about blame.
There's no real sense blaming Jews or Catholics, or oil executives
or money launderers. We've done all this to ourselves, simply by not
paying attention to what's actually happening.
It isn't Bush or Daschle who are the real scumbags, the real killers
of innocent people in the pursuit of profit. It's nobody us but us, we
the intelligent citizens of the world who failed to pay attention, or
took a bribe, or looked the other way when we saw somebody doing
something wrong because it was easier that way.
It is we who kept our mouths shut during all those scams, Vietnam,
the savings and loan robbery, Waco, 9/11. We were too afraid to ask real
questions, and thought we could get by waving our flags and going along
with the crowd. But each new government atrocity got worse, right up
And, sadly, the worst has yet to come.
It's too late now. Nothing can be done. They can't be stopped. We
waited too long. We waited until they had amassed their armies, their
biological identification devices, their roadblocks, their internment
camps for protesters, the death penalty in Oregon for protesting, their
genetically modified food supply (guaranteeing billions of needless
deaths), their aluminumization of our atmosphere, their privatization of
our water, their shaping of our very brains through Zionist educational
philosophies and Zionist entertainment programming until our minds were
so zapped out on misleading trivialities that we couldn't even ask the
most basic question of all anymore.
Which is this:
Why couldn't we see this would happen because we didn't pay
attention to all those other horrors?
Why didn't we know you can't turn your back on the world, and expect
the world to still be there when you turn back around?
There is no forgiveness, and no way to put things right without a
massive bloodbath now. Which is just what they wanted, just what they
practice. They've won. And we've lost.
But don't blame it on the lies of our leaders. Blame it on the lies
we told - and are still telling - ourselves.
