America's enemies of freedom are in full view

If you find and read: Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, by Professor Antony C. Sutton, DSc, and also go back and observe how Hitler was able to take control of Germany by using almost the identical ploys as are now being used by the present and past administration, you will discover that by having the Murrah Building blown up, they were not able to institute all of
their people control objectives. Hitler was able to do it just by having the Reichstag burned. Treason is being done in America on a much larger scale.

The United States have contributed to, and financed, both sides of every war that has taken place in at least the past 100 years. Read National Suicide - Military Aid to the Soviet Union; Read The three volume study - Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development. There is much proof about that the Soviet Union was 95 percent made in the USA.

Read Professor Carroll Quigley's 1348 page, Tragedy and Hope - The History of The World in Our Time. The enemies of America are ensconced in all of the key positions throughout the military and the present administration. The people cannot fight what they cannot see. And the present administration having them look abroad while eagerly eying the possibilities of passing
Marshall Law and seizing the weapons of their own patriotic citizens - will put the American people in exactly the same position as did the predecessors of the present administrations, all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, one of the originators of the Council on Foreign Relations who later financed Hitler.

Hitler was going to establish a New World Order, George Bush, Sr. told all of us the same thing on television. Gorbachev, with his tax-dodge tax free foundation has been running all about the USA making money to help finance a New World Order. Castro, another communist has been talking about establishing a New World Order for many years. Castro was put into power by the same gang which trained and financed Hitler.

Why is everyone so confused? This show has been going on for over 100 years, according to Bill Clinton's professor, Carroll Quigley. I wonder if that had anything to do with having his books pulled from the libraries?

Yours truly,
Cliff Hume

Subject: Enlightened Views of the Massacres - Prayers & Thoughts About the Tragedy
By A.V. Krebs, Editor/ Publisher The Agribusiness Examiner

Dear Friends and Colleagues

Yesterday, September 11,2001, a day that began, where I live, under a  bright sunny blue sky, similar to that same one that greeted people arriving for work in New York City and Washington D.C., was goingto be the  day that I finally after innumerable delays was to be about the business of  posting Issue #125 of The Agribusiness Examiner.

But just as I still see in my mind's eye exactly where I was standing and who I was with when on those other days of infamy -- December 7, 1941 and November 22, 1963 -- so too will I remember my disbelief when first I began making my check of the several online major daily newspapers that I puruse each day for relevant news items, and the first paper I examined left me stunned with the news of the unspeakable terror that had been visited upon the Big Apple and our nation's capital.

For the next 36 hours, just as I listened to the radio continuously for 24  hours in those dark days of December, 1941 and those four disbelieving days in November, 1963, I listened and watched the news on TV unfold from lower Manhattan and the Pentagon.

Watching speechless as those twin 110-story monuments to capitalism  imploded and became the burial grounds for thousands of innocent men and women, I could not help but think of the time that I worked for the National Sharecroppers Fund, with offices in lower Manhattan and each morning about that same time, commuting from Central New Jersey, I would emerge from the "tubes" below the Trade Center and transfer to the subway line that would take me to my office.

And as I continued watching the news and listening to the commentary in the hours that followed that horrendous event I found myself, maybe even perhaps as an emotional defense mechanism, becoming more and more of the journalist than just an idle television viewer, impatient at times with the incompleteness of the news and the inane comments by many of   the nation's so-called experts on international "terrorism" and military affairs.

The most frustrating aspect, however, of the reporting that I was witnessing during that time was due to the fact that I still think of myself as an ol' school journalist -- principally I still believe any good news stories should contain the "5W's and H!!!" -- Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How?

Throughout the agonizing hours of the "attack on America" most every story and commentary that I saw fulfilled to varying degrees only four of the five W's... and, of course, by simply viewing the unbelievable pictures and film television provided us throughout the day and night the public -- saw the how?

The fact though that for the most part TV made little effort to answer that all-important fifth W -- why? -- called into serious question in my mind whether we as a nation were actually learning anything from the events of September 11, 2001???

For to truly understand what happened on that day it is essential that we deal with then question -- why? -- why this carnage took place? For we need as a nation, as a self-proclaimed "global power," to ask what have we done to inspire such hatred, such anger, such contempt, to motivate fellow human beings to be so cold-blooded and unrepentant killers?

Make no mistake about it, the perpetrators of the World Trade Center and Pentagon carnage should stand condemned and brought to justice before the world, but at the same time the words of the Washington Post's outstanding sports columnist Thomas Boswell rings true. He writes

"For many Americans, including me, our lives have been conducted in a society where nearly all forces are benign. Our tragedies, of health or accident, are the inescapable sort that no society can prevent. The rest of the world looks at our wealth, our distance from their problems, even our self-absorption, with a wide range of responses. One of those responses is hatred.

Hate begets hate. Killing begets killing. And the totality of the accumulated pain makes rationality almost impossible. The agony that Americans feel right now is relatively small compared with the pain and fury for revenge that entire regions of the world drink by the gallon each day like mother's milk."

We decry, just as we did yesterday, when hate takes innocent lives. We voice our collective national puzzlement and condemnation when our fellow human beings in the world community say that to achieve their own narrow self-serving interests that taking the lives of innocent civilians is simply the end justifying the means. But does by simply waving our K-Mart American flags and lighting candles in the window, as this out take of a May,1996 interview with former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (CFR) , somehow give us the right to consider ourselves the Great Exception in international relations???

Lesley Stahl, (Council on Foreign Relations)  -   60 Minutes

"We have heard that a half million children have died [because of sanctions against Iraq]. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima and you  know, is the price worth it?"

Madeleine Albright (Council on Foreign Relations)

"I think this is a very hard choice, but we think the price is worth it." (When Madeleine says 'we' she is not talking about the us citizens, she is speaking for the Globe-straddling CFR. No numbers of human sacrifices are too many for the CFR.) - Cliff Hume

Television reporters, political and national defense pundits, and newspaper headline writers have had a field day with the use of the word "terror" and "terrorism" to describe the events of yesterday, but as my respected colleague Sam Smith points out in his Progressive Review Undernews

"The media and politicians call what happened terrorism. This is a propagandistic rather than a descriptive term and replaces the more useful traditional phrases, guerilla action or guerilla warfare. The former places a mythical shroud around the event while the latter depicts its true nature. Guerillas do not play by the rules of state organization or military tactics.

"This does not make them cowardly, as some have suggested, but can make them fiendishly clever. The essence of guerilla warfare is to attack at times and places unsuspected and return to places unknown. You can not invade the land of guerillas, you can not bomb them out of existence, you can not overwhelm them with your technological wonders.

"This was a lesson we were supposed to have learned in Vietnam but appear to have forgotten... Our war against `terrorism' has been in many ways a domestic version of our Vietnam strategy. We keep making the same mistakes over and over because, until now, we could afford to. One of these has been to define the problem by its manifestations rather than its causes.

"This turns a resolvable political problem into a irresolvable technical problem, because while, for example, there are clearly solutions to the Middle East crisis, there are no solutions to the guerilla violence that grows from the failure to end it,"

Smith continues. "In other words, if you define the problem as `a struggle against 'terrorism' you have already admitted defeat because the guerilla will always have the upper hand against a centralized, technology-dependent society such as ours... There is one way to deal with guerilla warfare and that is to resolve the problems that allow it to thrive.

"As we have shown in the Middle East, one need not even reach a final solution as long as incremental progress is being made. But once that ceases, as happened in the past year, the case for freelance violence is quickly strengthened and people simply forget that peace is possible."

If we as a justifiable angry nation now allow ourselves to not learn from history, realizing that violence only begets violence, then we are destined to continue to make the same mistakes that leads only to more violence.

The words of novelist Ken Kesey might well provide us with not only thoughtful commentary on what happened on an unforgettable late summer day in New York and Washington, D.C. that has left a whole nation and world in shock, sorrow, and prayer but his words might also give us some context and a sad but true perspective on the events of that tragic day.

"When God wants to really wake up a nation, He has to use somebody that counts.
When God wants to get your attention, He always has to use blood."
