Surpassing Orwell's 1984 In 2010!

By Jim Kirwan
11-25-10

"Would Orwell have believed it possible that the same overfed voices which had haunted him in the nineteen-thirties, the same crippling incompetence, addiction to foreign wars and assumptions to entitlement were happily in place in 2009?"

"The things that are done to us now in the name of the shareholder are to me as the things that are done, dare I say it, in the name of God." (2)

An excerpt from the film "1984" "What the hell do you think spies are; moral philosophers measuring everything they do against the word of God or Karl Marx. They're not, they're just a bunch of civil servants playing cowboys and Indians to brighten their rotten little lives: Do you think they sit like monks in a cell balancing right against wrong? Yesterday I would have killed Mundt because I thought him evil and an enemy; but not today: Today he's evil and my friend. London needs him!" (1)

Excerpt from "The United States of America Has Gone Mad" by John le Carre': "Americahas entered one of its periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember. Worse than McCarthyism, worse than the Bay of Pigs, and in the long term potentially more disastrous than the Vietnam War.

The reaction to 911 has been beyond anything that Osama Bin Laden could have hoped for in his nastiest dreams. As in McCarthy times, the freedoms that have madeAmerica the envy of the world are being systematically eroded. The combination of compliant US media and vested corporate interests is once more insuring that the debate that should be ringing out in every town square is confined to the loftier columns of the East-coast press. The immanent war was planned years before Bin Laden 'struck' ­ but it was "he" that made it possible. Without Bin Laden the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as 'how it came to be elected in the first place.'

Enron it's shameless favoring of the already too rich, it's reckless disregard for the world's poor, ecology and a raft of the unilateral abrogated International treaties. They might also have to have been telling us why they support Israel, in its continuing disregard for UN Resolutions. But 'Bin Laden' conveniently swept all that under the carpet. The Bush's' are riding high. Now 88% of Americans want the war we are told. The US Defense Budget has been raised by another sixty billion to around three-hundred and sixty billion. A splendid new generation of nuclear weapons is in the pipeline so we can all 'breathe easy:' Quite ­ What war the 88% of Americans think they are supporting is a lot less clear. A war 'for how long please' at what cost inn American lives, at what cost to the American taxpayer's pocket: At what cost because most of those 88% are decent and humane people ­ in Iraqi lives? How Bush and his Junta succeeded in deflecting America's anger from Bin Laden to Saddam Hussein is one of the great public relations conjuring tricks of history, but this won it. A recent poll tells us that one in two Americans now believe that Saddam was responsible for the attack on the World Trade Center. That the American public is not merely being misled, it is being browbeaten and kept in a state of ignorance and fear. The carefully orchestrated neurosis should carry Bush and his fellow conspirators nicely into the next [s]election.

Those who are not with Mr. Bush are against him. Worse they are 'The Enemy.' Which is odd because I'm dead against Bush, but I would love to see Saddam's downfall, just not on Bush's terms and not by his methods. And not under the banner of such outrageous hypocrisy.

[Part of the price for murdering Saddam, that the world paid, was the loss to the world of 7,000 years of history that had been preserved, by universal agreement, in the BaghdadMuseum]

The religious cant that will send American troops into battle is perhaps the most sickening aspect of this surreal war-to-be. Bush has an arm-lock on 'God.' And 'God' has very particular political opinions. God appointed America to save the world in any way that suits America. God appointed Israel to be the Nexus of America's Middle-Eastern Policy and anyone who wants to mess with that idea is 'a'Anti-Semitic and 'b' Anti-American 'c' With the Enemy and'd' a Terrorist.

What is at stake is not an immanent military or terrorist threat, but the economic imperative of US growth. What is at stake is America's need to demonstrate its military power to all of us: To Europe and China and poor mad little North Korea, as well as the Middle East, to show who rules America at home; and who is to be ruled by America abroad."

As our governments 'spin, lie, and lose their credibility the electorate simply shrugs and looks the other way. ~ What can't be explained is how [we] explain a global assault on Al Qaeda with a territorial assault on Iraq. We are in this war, if it takes place, to secure the fig-leaf of our special relationship [le Carre' is English] to grab our share of the oil part and because for our part the hand-holding in Washington and Camp David, Blair has to show up at the alter. But' Will we win daddy?' 'Of course child, it will all be over while you're still in bed.' 'WHY' 'Because otherwise Bush's voters will get terribly impatient and may decide not to vote for him.' 'But will people be killed daddy?' "Oh, nobody you know darling, just foreign people.' 'Can I watch it on television?' 'Only if Mr. Bush says you can' 'And afterwards will everything be normal again, nobody will do anything horrid anymore?' 'Hush child and go to sleep.'

Last Friday a friend of mine in California drove to his local supermarket with a sticker on his car saying 'PEACE is also PATRIOTIC' ­ it was gone by the time he'd finished shopping."

End of the excerpt.

Le Carre is also the author of "Our Kind of Traitor" which is also discussed in this link below, (2)

On October 6th, 2006 over three hundred US military personnel were killed in a single encounter in Iraq. The list of the dead and wounded is located within the story. If this news had been released to the American public when it happened; the War on Iraq would have ended that day-because Americans would have demanded an end to a war that could kill that many troops in a single encounter. This was the true nature of the War-on-Iraq that was sold to the public, based on lies and deceptions, but was never allowed to be shown as it truly was-a prolonged defeat that was kept going to service all those private-no-bid contracts on which the whole affair was always based. It continues to this day with how many other untold defeats that the American public cannot be told about; because we might finally be able to understand the truth that is being concealed by US Inc, the for profit US Corporation that is located only in Washington D.C. and whose "laws and edicts" only apply to Washington D. C. but NOT to the rest of the United States!

"Official Casualty List from U.S. military hospital at al-Habbaniyah located some 70km west of Baghdad. U.S. medical personnel at al- Habbaniyah initially stated that the US military hospital at the massive American-occupied air base there had begun to receive dead and wounded personnel. The military hospital in al-Habbaniyah, the largest in occupied Iraq, was opened on 12 May this year in response to sharply rising (and redacted) US casualties. List compiled and effective as of 11 Oct 2006 at 2300."

The complete list is too long to quote here, but it is shown in this link: If you had a loved-one killed in that battle you might want to ask the US War Department why they did not mention that battle to the world! (3)

Le Carre's article "The United States of America Has Gone Mad," quoted in part at the top of this article was only the beginning of the lies. Today we have been driven much deeper into the bowels of their treason and deceptions to a place where the private for-profit US corporation which still tries to hid behind Constitutional trappings; has now abandoned even any shred of legitimacy as they race headlong into shutting down this country by new fascist fiats on every front-TSA and VIPER being only the latest in a long line of circumscribed behaviors that US Inc plans to end completely. This includes the right to travel in all its forms from flying to driving to travel in any form whatsoever. These changes are being inflicted by a wide array of NANNY rules and regulations that have no legal basis in law, and actually cannot be applied anywhere outside the District of Columbia-unless you buy-into-them and adhere to these restrictions wherever they are posted throughout the nation.

In San Francisco there is a US government owned and operated commuter system called BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). Since 911 they have closed the two restrooms in each of the underground stations; supposedly to prevent bombs from being placed in the single-commode restrooms. The actual reason was to be able to fire the janitors and cease to keep the stations clean. BART serves 380,000 passengers a day ­ and does not provide restrooms for their paying clients in any of the underground stations.

To further inconvenience the public, and to justify the lack of janitors BART instituted all kinds of NANNY provisions without discussion. NO EATING, NO DRINKING, NO SMOKING. The penalty for violators is a $250.00 fine. The stations are still filthy, and are unattended because BART, despite a budget surplus, has laid off station attendants to go along with firing the janitors-and now the trains carry government propaganda akin to what is shown in the film "1984" warning of TERRORISTS everywhere, and potential BOMBS or ATTACKS by anyone who might be SUSPISIOUS. This is nothing but government propaganda from a private-for-profit corporation seeking to ensure their power over the people by terrorizing the general public out of all proportion to any legitimate concern for the health or welfare of any of its "citizens." This instance is but one small example of just how controlled we have all become-and this must be stopped!

The world of American Consumers is rapidly diminishing into nothing but a police state-because Consumers have NO rights; whereas citizens supposedly do. However in this surreal world where the government is NOT the government but a front-corporation that services the black-markerteers of the world, to assist them in laundering the monies they acquired by theft, and via their own indirect ownership of the drug world, and as well as the illicit sales of guns and weapons around the world in their for-profit entrepreneurial endeavors to corner every source for legal and illegal drugs, medicines, and financing world-wide: The price for which is being passes on to those who control not one single aspect of their own lives-that would be you and I.

Too few will read this because I'm writing this on one of America's Greatest Holidays-a holiday that is also based on a lie. A year after the first settlers landed at Plymouth Rock they gave a feast for the natives that had gotten them thru the long and difficult winters they had endured. But instead of having the feast they murdered 700 natives, an entire village ­ and today it's called Thanksgiving Day! This has not been a secret, yet the public has not altered its traditional celebrations, because they grew up with the private-for-profit corporations version of events in our long ­ago past. So enjoy whatever you're doing today "With family or loved ones" but please remember that this place is no longer a nation state: We are officially a police-state where every single person here is owned and where our lives are bought and sold on the Stock Markets of the world, because we are the collateral that gives this nation both its credibility and its ability to financially survive- by selling us and our labor to the highest bidder.

I guess what goes-around comes-around or as has been said before; there can be no "rights" without "personal responsibility," hence apparently the bill for our crimes has come due and now we are beginning to pay for what our forefathers did to the roughly 60 million people that once lived here: Before we began to do to them what Israel is now doing to the Palestinians-it's called creating a national genocide, for fun & profit!

Happy Holidays!
