“A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
April 19, 2009 – Unlike the Erich Segal novel of the late 1960’s, this is not a “Love Story”, but one of a love gone bad – or at least out of lust.
Having recently returned from a trip to North Carolina, I begin to have a different perspective on the issues of the day, but first, I must return to history to establish my current mental status.
I have spent most of my life (since the 5th grade) reading and studying history – chiefly that of America. ‘America’! What a beautiful land, comprised of mostly beautiful people of vast lands and cultures. A place where people dreamed of, but of a single word, ‘Freedom.’ The Grand Experiment, where all could come to live their dreams of opportunity and the rights to free speech, freedom of religion and so much more.
The America I have known for over six decades is no longer alive and well, it is D.O.A. – Dead on Arrival, it’s grand ship, having struck the iceberg of International Intrigue, is sinking fast. There are not nearly enough lifeboats, nor jackets, but “hold on to me Rose, and we’ll survive this together!,” except that Jack won’t make it – he’ll drown in the sea of lies, deceit, and corruption, perpetrated by the greatest fraud ever to be experienced by mankind.
The U.S.S. America is going down, only to lie gracefully, in the Oceanic Graveyard amongst the ships of State of many other nations, societies, and empires, including Rome, the Egypt of Cleopatra and the thousand year reign of the Byzantine Empire.
We didn’t start out as an Empire – just a bunch of rag-tag people, who’d had enough, and chartered a one-way cruise, and came looking for a new life in a new world. They landed at a place called Plymouth, and set out to create something, which became quite special less than 160 years later – a Republic.
“Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat – the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words.” John Wayne as Davy Crockett, The Alamo, 1960.
The demise of this once great Republic, has been slowly evolving since it/s inception. Like Lincoln at Ford/s Theater on that damp night in April of 1865, the Republic has been shot from behind – not from the bullet of a lone assassin, but from those who hired him – the agents of the International Banksters, controlled by none other than the dastardly Rothschild Dynasty. Less than five decades later, during the Christmas season – on December 23, 1913, the surgeons removed the bullet, and let the wound bleed freely, with the ratification of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which ultimately brought us the income tax ‘laws’ and all, which it entailed.
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world.
No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” ~ Woodrow Wilson, upon the signing of the Federal Reserve Act.
America was in the early stages of death, yet few would ever realize this traitorous act, until the moment of the nation’s final breath, nearly 100 years later, and yet – there was far more damage to be done to our beloved nation – what Rothschild had referred to as, “The most brilliant pearl in the oyster.”
After the death of Wilson’s successor, Warren G. Harding from a ‘heart attack’ in 1923, Calvin Coolidge became President of the united States, followed by Herbert Hoover. Each of these three men, were considered ‘conservative’ in their political leanings, however – the ‘Powers That Be’ behind the scenes had something else in store for America, at which time Rothschild confidant, Bernard Baruch through his agent Winston Churchill, set about to create economic chaos in America, culminating in the ‘Stock Market Crash of 1929,’ which ended the political career of Hoover. The time had arrived for the next piece of the puzzle of destruction to be put in place – the man from Hyde Park.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was swept into power because of the Great Depression (although no one living at the time considered it ‘great’). The loss of capital, homes, farms and jobs was what F.D.R. campaigned against, with the promise to get America moving forward once more. Within weeks, gold was confiscated from the American people and a bank ‘holiday’ was declared – ostensibly to prevent the complete financial collapse of the nation (“The only thing we have to feah is feah itself!”) [accent intentional, Ed.]
From Wikipedia: During the Great Depression of the 1930s, Roosevelt created the New Deal to provide relief for the unemployed, recovery of the economy, and reform of the economic and banking systems, through various agencies, such as the Works Project Administration (WPA), National Recovery Administration (NRA), and the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA). Although recovery of the economy was incomplete until World War II, several programs he initiated, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), continue to have instrumental roles in the nation’s commerce. Some of his other legacies include the Social Security system and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Beginning with his inauguration address, Roosevelt began blaming the economic crisis on bankers and financiers, the quest for profit, and the self-interest basis of capitalism:
“Primarily this is because rulers of the exchange of mankind’s goods have failed through their own stubbornness and their own incompetence, have admitted their failure, and have abdicated. Practices of the unscrupulous money changers stand indicted in the court of public opinion, rejected by the hearts and minds of men. True they have tried, but their efforts have been cast in the pattern of an outworn tradition. Faced by failure of credit they have proposed only the lending of more money. Stripped of the lure of profit by which to induce our people to follow their false leadership, they have resorted to exhortations, pleading tearfully for restored confidence….The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.”
Historians categorized Roosevelt’s program as “relief, recovery and reform.” Relief was urgently needed by tens of millions of unemployed. Recovery meant boosting the economy back to normal.
“I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be in love with liberty.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
~ Back to the Future – Once Again ~
WWII brought us out of the Depression and set America back on the road to prosperity. But at what cost? It’s now 2009, and many of the same problems exist today, which were prevalent in 1933 – and once again, a slicky-boy, polished orator, often referenced as ‘The One’ has come to the throne of Washington, DeCeit.
During the reign of Bush the Father, the words, ‘New World Order’ first came to the attention of Americans, and eyebrows went up in wonder. His successor, Willaim of Hope was only concerned with one thing going up, and a certain Intern ‘going down.’ Then came Bush the Lessor – a man who had never succeeded in anything he had been involved in; school, the oil business, part owner of a Major League Baseball team (the term, ‘major league’ should have been a warning to his partners), then Governor of Texas. That position alone, became the jumping-off point for residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but a bigger Dolt, we could not have chosen’ or did WE choose him? Of course we could have been gored by Tipper’s idiotic husband. Hmmmm – the evil of two lessors! Either way we would have lost – which is exactly what happened – and now we have, ‘The One,’ with all of his promises of ‘Hope’ and ‘Change.’
Guaranteed, none of it will be for the better.
Many before me have written with eloquence about the ubringing and education of the one, whom many refer to as “the President of the United States.” I prefer not to refer to him as such, as, although he appears to have ‘won’ a selection of sorts, I have yet to be convinced that this usurper is legitimate, as he has yet to prove himself as such. And yet, in less than 100 days, this pretender to the throne, has set America on a path, for which I believe she can never recover – a path, for which even Mr. Roosevelt would be shocked – and proud.
‘Change’ is what the bastard promised his minions – and that is precisely what they will get. From ramming cash down the throats of unwilling and unsuspecting banks, to the ‘firing’ of the CEO of General Motors (who also took the cash), to a sundry of useless public relations Executive Orders and Presidential directives, to his continual ‘apologies’ to the rest of the world for America’s position in the world, to the closing of Guantanamo, and the development of what appears to be his own ‘private’ army of useful idiots – this man’s energy is boundless when it comes to tearing apart the very fabric of what made this nation great.
Barack Hussein Obama, wants to be the do-all, know-all, and give-all to everyone ‘ except those, whom he wishes to take it away from, such as gun owners. Stem Cell research? BANG! Higher taxes? BANG! Reparations to the descendants of former slaves? BANG! National Security? BANG!
Normally after two ‘BANGS,’ you’re dead – but this jerk keeps on firing. Delivery of Services Regarding Postpartum Conditions? BANG! Rapid resolve of national immigration policies? BANG! BANG! BANG! And he’ll be addressing the nation with his plans, directly after the May Day rallies, scheduled to be held in cities across America on the Communist’s most Holy Day. Rat-a-Tat-Tat! FREE health care for all! FREE education for all! FREE food and housing for all! FREE! FREE FREE! And it will all be paid for by the dumbed-down Americans who voted for him – and the rest of us who didn’t.
“The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
I HATE to say it – but you will soon be a criminal for speaking out against Faggots and Les-be-Friends. And what about your disdain and mistrust for Sharia Law and those who follow it? HATE! Yutumbo Mambasso Ali from the ghetto? HATE! Illegal Aliens form anywhere? A taco in every pot! HATE! HATE! HATE!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Chicaga politics at its finest! Bill Ayers should be proud. Obama blew up the whole damned country right before our very eyes, and nary a wisp of smoke.
And where is Bill the Inhaler, while all of this is going on? Obama doesn’t give a damn. He wants no advice from a guy who was trying to recruit an all girl marching band, with full horn and woodwind sections. It’s been rumored, that while Madame Secretary of State is away – that Bill ain’t playing pocket pool, but – can you blame him??? And Barry wants to hear nothing from George the Bumbler – and who can blame him? “Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!”
And now the greatest rub-out of all, direct from the Showroom of Homeland Security and it’s Janet Reno protégé, Janet Napolotano, Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. DAMN! I’m a terrorist, for speaking so boldly about such matters as those covered in this column. What the hell happened to my First Amendment Rights of freedom of speech??? What happened to my freedoms and liberties in this nation? Have they all been given away to foreigners? Or Illegal Invaders? You’re goddamned right they have, and I am more than just a little pissed off. What the hell is wrong with the rest of America? I just don’t think that your mad enough yet – but you will be!
“Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
On radio programs across the country, people, who voted for this Socialist basTURD, are now calling in and begging forgiveness from the audience for having voted the way they did. Thanks for nothing pal – but then to have voted for the tired, old RepublicRAT would have been just as dumb – albeit a slower demise of the nation. According to a report I have just been apprised of, Sarah of Alaska, may in fact be related to (by marriage, of course) to Vlad the Impaler (Dracula), making her just another blood-sucking politician – but then she is better to look at. If I am going to get screwed by a politician, at least have her look better than the Nancy PeeLousy – or Debbie StabYouNow from the former Motor City.
While away, I read about AKA’s ill-fated trip to the G-20 meeting in early April of 2009. According to one editorial out of London, it’s a wonder that the ‘Boy’ survived, for as the column stated (paraphrase) he was looked upon by his International peers, as an unprepared, inexperienced ‘leader’ – which he is. He only spent 45 days in the U.S. Senate, before abandoning his commitment to the people of Illinois, and seeking the office of the (p)residency, and before that, he spent several years sucking on Acorns in the Illinois Legislature. After the G-20 conference (where he negotiated away more American Sovereignty) it was off to Istanbul(shit) for further song and dance, then to shag the troops in Iraq, and by the middle of the month, his extended, taxpayer funded vacation took him to exotic Mexico to apologize for American gun-owners and their ‘gun show loopholes,’ which must be supplying those evil weapons to the drug cartels South of the Border. And all along the way, it was “promises, promises” to every special interest group with their hands out.
And dont forget, the little waterdog. ‘Bo’ ( I assume, named for BO himself) moved into the White House – a gift from that great former Olympic caliber swimmer, Ted Kennedy. Like, who gives a damn, man? There are far more important issues of the day to deal with, than whether a little four-legged tar-baby took up residency at 1600. I hope he craps on the carpet of the Oval Office. We’re all getting a shitty deal, why not the Usurper???
And finally, all of His schedule is being reported daily in his own home town bird-cage liner, the bankrupt Chicaga Sun-Times. I guess the folks in the Ward want to know how their Boy is doing.
~ and where does it all end? ~
When I began this fight, so many years ago, it was with the intent of reaching out to America, with a sense of the other side, in other words, information and a thought process, which generally did not exist in this nation – primarily due to the unwritten ‘Unfairness Doctrine’ – you know – the one that told you all the ‘news’ that they wanted you to believe!
My fight was borne of the belief that Americans really gave a damn, as to what happened to them – to this country and it’s Republic. After speaking with a wise man in North Carolina, I have come to the realization that America (it’s people) really DON’T give a damn. First of all, they don’t get it. Second of all – they don’t want to.
Some time ago, I penned an opinion column entitled, Burn it! Burn the Train!
I now believe that I was being too kind. The people of America will continue to fill up the stands at the ball-park, go to opening weekend of Hannah Montana’s new movie, get on that Jet-Ski with a 12 pack of beer, shop ’til they drop at the Malls with their Massah-Cards and fill up the restaurants until they have to go back to the malls and buy a larger pair of pants to fit their obese bodies, catch up with Simon Cowell as he (rightfully) insults those wanna-be Idols on the reincarnation of American Bandstand (sorry Mr. Clark), and fill their brains with so much crap, that they can’t make a conscience decision on their own.
America, you are doomed to fail, because you just aren’t mad enough yet. You’re not scared out of your goddamned wits enough yet. “Why hell, – de Man only been in office fo’ three months almost. Give himz a chance!“
You’ve had your chance America – and you blew it.
When the Hell will you get angry enough?
I’ll see you at Sundown,
