Subject: The American Empire On Its Deathbed
The American Empire On Its Deathbed

"...and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?
who is able to make war with him?" ---- Revelation 13:4
There is a conspiracy theory, which has made the rounds in many circles for many years, that there are forces within the US government that are engineering events such as the 9-11 incident, the Oklahoma City bombing, and so forth, to implement this great "Master Plan" to implement a totalitarian government. This government is part and parcel of a much larger effort by the New World Order, the United Nations, the Illuminati, the Queen of England in league with the Vatican, the multinational corporations, or whomever the scapegoat of the day or the movement, is. Most of the conspiracy theorists present this as if it is a fait accompli which cannot be undone. For all intents and purposes, these people WORSHIP this coming leviathan which they see as unconquerable.
The truth may actually prove a lot more discomfiting for a lot more people when it materializes. The truth is that the American government is in near collapse. The truth is that the recent attacks on the United States are NOT the result of the Bush family conspiring with the Clintons and other state liberals to coalesce power. The truth is likely that outside powers, far from trying to CREATE a totalitarian USA, are trying to remove the USA from its current position as world military and economic superpower, and would attempt to DESTROY any totalitarian USA, just like the Soviet Union collapsed and Nazi Germany was disassembled.
The powers that be have lost control. All the various moves you are seeing now are not the moves of someone "in control". They are the moves of a group of people that have suddenly discovered they have lost control. And are desperately trying to get it back.
Totalitarians in control wouldn't be intimidated by a little anthrax spread around Washington DC. Totalitarians would stand and fight. The Congress did not stand and fight. They RAN, and they ran like scalded dogs. The rest of the government also ran. These are the actions, not of people in control of a master plan, but of people in panic: people who have suddenly discovered they DON'T control what's going on.
Is the CIA having been hit with anthrax a sign of control? Let me repeat this: the terrorizers of the U.S. government HIT the Central Intelligence Agency. This is the agency that is supposed to know about these things before they happen. This is also the agency that was told by several sources that the 9-11 event was imminent, but either ignored the threat, or could not react to it in time. Do you REALLY THINK they LET themselves be hit?
Gray Davis, in an incredible moment of grandstanding, demonstrated more of this lack of control, by announcing a terrorist threat....but not quite a verified one. Just a rumor. Something even the FBI is now disavowing. So now we have all the king's men scrambling around trying to catch...they have no idea what...trying to stop.....they have no idea who. In other words, they are stumped. They're snookered. They're outsmarted.
A Sacramento journalist was taken into custody by police at Los Angeles International Airport and was forced to destroy photos he had been taking by an over-zealous National Guardsman. Totalitarians are not usually afraid to have their pictures taken. Recently, a key member of the Green Party was denied entry onto an aircraft, because she was a member of the Green Party attending a peace conference. They have tried to blame the anthrax incidents on everyone from Al-Qaeda, to Iraq, to racist domestic militias, to libertarian militias, to pagans: and its only a matter of time before they try and blame it on leftist activists,unions, and the religious right, or as Clinton did with the Murrah Building bombing, "right wing radical talk show hosts".
These people are not only afraid of foreign terrorists. These people are afraid of you and me. They are afraid of the press. They are afraid of the political activists. They are afraid of the pacifists. They are afraid of their own shadows. They are not in control of anything. When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping?
Now, this "War On Terror" could have gone a different way. After September 11th, there could have been a call for the militia, which is the whole people, and not a handful of backwoods rednecks as is the romantic ideal (not that there's anything WRONG with being a backwoods redneck), a call for the whole people to be on alert, to become armed, to learn self-defense and battle techniques, and to train to do things like protect the bridges, the nuclear plants, the borders, the planes.
That did not happen. We could have been told to prepare shelters against nuclear or biological attack. We could have been told to stock up on supplies, on first aid kits, and train in CPR and medical rescue techniques. To buy guns. To shore up our vehicles for potential emergency use or flight. Instead, what did Rudy Giuliani ask us to do to save New York? What did George W. Bush ask us to do to save the country. They asked us to shop.
Rudy asked us to "come see a Broadway show" even though we couldn't drive into the city without a second passenger, and had to go through roadblocks and search points more dense than those at the Mexican border.
The President asked us to fly in planes that he does not fly in, because they are not safe enough for him to do so. Instead of asking us to save, invest, stock up on supplies, he wants us to continue engaging in pointless consumption and satisfying our vanities. Excuse me, Mr.President, but didn't you just say we're at WAR? Didn't you just appoint
a new office of Homeland Security because you knew we were going to be under imminent attack by Al-Qaeda agents in our own country? Yet we're supposed to go on as if 9-11 never happened? We're supposed to go shopping?
Wartime is a time when a little austerity is in order. The only people during war who would spend like there's no tomorrow are people who expect to die soon. If the American economy is dependent on such frivolous spending, then it basically is already screwed.
Anti-terrorism bills the death warrant of America as a world power. The Congress of the United States issued a series of bills in an attempt to regain control, the most threatening of which is the one using the acronym of the PATRIOT Act. The legislation is some of the most liberty-infringing legislation that has been passed in many a decade.
President George W. Bush dutifully signed them all without so much as a whimper: in fact, he was glad to do so. At that point, whether he realizes it or not, George W. Bush signed the death warrant of the American Empire.
It is the death warrant of the American Empire for several reasons.First of all, it has coalesced a small but important coalition, on the left, the right and the center, AGAINST the United States government.
And that coalition just happens to be the people who are most concerned about liberty and freedom. The President and the Congress has basically just told every person concerned about liberty and freedom in America, from the ACLU activist and the WTO-NAFTA protester, to the religious conservative and the libertarian free marketer, to go to hell. In other words, they essentially told the real American patriots that they can bug off. Liberty and freedom is not important. Security is the prime directive. Sit down, shut up, wave your flag and do as you are told.
They are living the warning of Benjamin Franklin, that those who trade liberty for security deserve neither. The tragedy for them is, that government will be a bigger target than ever now.
The "War On Terror" will be lost.
That brings me to the third reason the American Empire is about to die.
3. Resist the tyranny
Many of you will get this one right away. Resist the tyranny. Live as a free person. You don't have to be told. You easily see that the only way to make the tyranny ultimately go away is to refuse to participate in it.
Others of you will ask, but wouldn't this be "unpatriotic"?
Have you ever heard of the principle of "tough love". Basically, sometimes you have to let your children, or your friend, go, and let them suffer the consequences of their actions, in order to save them. Because enabling them to continue taking the wrong path will only in the long run get them, and maybe you, killed. Study any twelve step program for validation of this.
This is what has to be done with the federal government, and many of the state and local governments. They are our children. We created them. But they are errant children. They are children who have become thugs and terrorists. They're not REALLY the enemy. But in order to rescue them, we may have to treat them like the enemy. We may even have to kill them, as per the Toraic proscription as to excessively errant children. We may have to shun them, as per the New Testament proscription as to excessively errant and unrepentant church members.
Resisting the tyranny means many things. It means not paying taxes. It means trimming your reliance on the state, and upon its identity documents, as much as you can practically get away with. It means using jury nullification to disrupt their trials. It means using every trick you can think of to disrupt their affairs.
Don't talk to the FBI. If you talk to the FBI, it gives them the chance of prosecuting you because they think you lied to them. So just don't talk to them. There are a thousand people in federal detention centers as we speak, NONE of them having been charged with any crime of any consequence. It can happen to you, too. Don't talk to them. Tell them to go to hell.
Do you think that is treasonous talk? Well, the greatest President we ever had, one Thomas Jefferson, said that when the government fears the people, there is liberty. But when the people fear the government, there is tyranny. So immediately, I say to you now. Stop fearing the government. Make them fear you. Make them mortified to come into your neighborhood, terrified to approach your door and knock on it, frightened to stop your car and ask for your license. Remember that these civil liberties violations started with the government. The plans they have to invade our privacy, take our property, deprive us of liberty and freedom of travel, were initiated BY the government, not by freedom lovers. THEY started it. If we love freedom and liberty, we must fight for it. We must fight ALL tyranny, whether it comes from Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein, or whether it comes from agents of our own government.
Many of you have varied opinions on George W. Bush, ranging from the "Antichrist" to the best President we could have at a time like this. I don't think President Bush is a BAD man. But I do think he has made a fatal mistake. A mistake which he could undo tomorrow by executive order: but I don't see it happening. Having done this, he has failed to do his constitutional duty, and does not deserve support for his current domestic policy. And don't you dare gloat, Tom Daschle. Mr. Bush hasn't done anything wrong that you haven't also done, and nearly every member of Congress, Democrat and Republican, with you.
And definitely, don't say "I told you so", Mr. Gore. Most of our present dilemma happened because of events set in motion on your watch and due to your incompetence and your tolerance of a corrupt administration.
5. Homeschool your kids
I don't say this lightly. The public school systems in most communities are largely beyond hope. They are not teaching values. They are teaching sheepery, to go along to get along. They are literally terrorizing kids and parents alike with "zero tolerance" tyranny over guns, drugs, t-shirts, and free thought. Screw them. Whatever your values are, now is the time to teach them to your children. I can assure you they will not learn them in public school. They will also not learn "how" to think in public school, as opposed to what to think.
Also, public schools are going to become a very dangerous place. Osama bin Laden has already told us that he will attack our children. What better way to attack our children than at school, all of which have been declared "arms-free zone" enforced by such zero tolerance tyranny that you cannot even point a finger in a mock game of cops and robber without suffering persecution. Such schools have in effect sent an engraved invitation to Al-Qaeda terrorists which says: HIT ME, OUR KIDS AREN'T PROTECTED BY ANYONE. The law of the jungle will assert itself here. They
will attack our schools. They will kill our children, just as sure as any wilderness predator goes after the young, the weak, and the least defended. You think they won't? Then you must have forgotten that the Ryder truck of Timothy McVeigh was parked right below a day care center, which McVeigh knew existed.
6. Reorient your economy
The reason this country is in as much economic jeopardy as we are in is that we have forsaken industrial jobs and sent them overseas, and we have replaced them with Pizza Hut Delivery and a lot of service sector jobs.
I want to suggest that now is the time for everyone to tighten their belts. Now is the time to make economic purchasing decisions based on needs and not on wants. And we should all orient our economies and our jobs and businesses to things which people are going to need regardless of the economy. What would those be? Food. Shelter. Basic clothing. Medical supplies. Basic transportation. Information. Communications. Energy. Defense. Waste disposal.
Less emphasis should be put on "toys" and more emphasis on utility: in other words, if you're going to dabble in toys, make them toys relevant for survival. Also more emphasis needs to be placed on things which can be recycled and refurbished, and less on "throw away" stuff.
Moreover, we need to strengthen our mutual survivability by getting as many of those things locally as we possibly can.
Also, if you are investors, you need to reorient your investments so that they do two things. Number one, so they are not dependent on the US dollar, and two, so they are reflective of material and necessity industries and not pleasure and service industries, because the material and necessity industries are more likely to survive both a catastrophic series of events and the collapse of the dollar.
Additionally, get mobile. Mobility may be the key to survival. If you're into cars, I would suggest classic cars as a hobby. Why? In the event of a nuclear-generated electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) wiping out electrical devices in an area, classic cars which use an older technology may be at a premium, and you may be able to escape in that old clunker when the new stuff doesn't work any more.
