As Predicted, the Police State Back to Its Old Ways
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
Veterans Today is a publication for those who wore the uniform to defend their countries, in our case, 28 countries from Israel to Libya to Russia, Serbia, the United States, Greece, Turkey, the list goes on.
The number used to be 28, its much higher now. Many of us are former law enforcement, some highly decorated.
What went on in Boston and New York has made me more than ashamed. I saw it coming, the deterioration in law enforcement in the US, that “us v. them” that had infected so many bad police departments.
There is no limit to how far Wall Street will go to defend its parasitic ways. It took 24 hours for proof of Wall Street concocting the Iran terror alert, the phony assassination plot to come to light.
As with other terror issues, the Detroit Crotch Bomber, 9/11, 7/7 and now this one, the money trail is easy to follow. (Threats toward Iran were generated, we have confirmed, to push up flagging oil prices due to low demand and the glut of oil we are now finding almost everywhere we look.)
My “day job” involves training police and counter-terrorism forces. Among my personal contacts are the heads or former heads of Britain’s Special Branch, SAS, Frances security services, Pakistan, Ghana, Nigeria, the Soviet Union, Russia, Egypt, Jordan, Greece, that list goes on forever also, heading into some controversial areas.
My co-workers are former CIA, FBI and their equivalents from half a dozen western countries. We do what we do to pay the bills, school fees for kids, grandchildren. One good friends, a former Long Beach cop, decades with the FBI, former diplomat, is somewhere even too nasty to name. He is nearly 70, working 12 hours a day. Some of us are older.
None of us condone what we have seen here in the United States. This is the height of unprofessionalism. What do we talk about? We talk about the rigged justice system that lets off financial crooks, lets off spies with political connections, that blocks investigations into terrorism.
Many of us, certainly the older crowd, were in Vietnam, some training Diem and Thieu’s police, me with a Marine Special Landing Team, or others SEALs, CIA, Special Forces, doing every imaginable job.
The challenge there was to keep our eyes open.
It didn’t take a genius to see the corruption and what was wrong with the war, even those of us who, for years, tried to justify the war as a fight against communism.
I saw Vietnam as it was, a con job that murdered off a generation of the best Americans and enriched a criminal conspiracy of freebooters and political hacks here at home. The Vietnam War was a sickness of the soul and had to be stopped.
I worked to do that as did so many others, tens of thousands of combat veterans, most of whom died young, agent orange, suicide, America knows the story they just don’t listen, don’t learn.
We did it all again.
The people who wear the uniform, who are prepared to give their lives to defend America are easy picking. Those of us who know Afghanistan well, and I certainly do, the players there, the folks in Pakistan, know how utterly insane that war is.
Billions in heroin is being shipped out, reports coming in from our veterans aren’t just about “walking through the poppies” but loading trucks, guarding heroin processing. Other more classified accounts that I will list as unsubstantiated, involve contracting firms, not “mercenaries,” these are quality people, friends, who have seen “too much.” Even I won’t talk about it.
No American hero is safe, not Pat Tillman, shot down by Americans in Afghanistan, not the veterans attacked by police in Boston.
In New York, off duty cops are getting $50 bucks an hour, some paid in cash, working for the banks. They are working “private security” with pepper spray and full arrest powers which they are using. We call it corruption, a department now falled into the same sewer it was during the Serpico years, the Knapp Commission of the 70’s and the Mollen Commission of the 90’s.
Now NYPD is even worse, never having gotten out of the sewer of the Kerick/Giuliani days.
There is a reason I mention Afghanistan. There were no “hijackers” there. Solid sources went public awhile ago, Osama bin Laden was never a terrorist and has been dead for nearly 10 years.
I heard it from his CIA handlers, I heard it from top Marine Corps officals, I heard it from those who briefed General Petraeus, Secretary Gates and Secretary of State Clinton. I know they had been told, those who told them, told me.
We went to Afghanistan to create a war, not to free people. The Taliban ruled Afghanistan because America wanted the Taliban to rule Afghanistan. This is the history, the real history.
When it was profitable to run up hundreds of billions in a useless war, we attacked on no premise whatsoever, starting a war that would last even longer than Vietnam.
It is a war where a billion dollars a month in “nation building” funds is stolen, according to the General Accounting Office, and a billion dollars a week of heroin is shipped out of the country, according to the Russian government.
Vietnam was started by Wall Street. The “Global War on Terror” was orchestrated there, the real planners of 9/11 work there, part of the endless “revolving door,” Wall Street to Washington and back.
When an American fights for America he has to fight Wall Street, he has to fight Boston too. The Koch Brothers, the dark center of the worldwide conspiracy against America live there, Rupert Murdoch, homes in dozens of countries, he is “Boston” too.
What have we learned?
We know that the Department of Homeland Security gives guns to the cartels. It does more, much more and law enforcement officials are now facing investigation.
Funny thing, for those who don’t remember it, the original nominee for Director of Homeland Security was Bernie Kerick, a New York Police Commissioner, nominated by President George W. Bush on the recommendation of former New York mayor, former prosecuting attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Instead, Kerick went to prison. We didn’t just create the Department of Homeland Security, a two edged sword, equally capable of creating acts of terror, of phony terror warnings, of the “Chertoff effect.”
Editors Note: When Bernie went to Iraq as a police consultant the troops learned real quickly that he was just polishing up his resume to charge high fees for his services when he got home. He sucked up a lot of security personnel for his big photo op tour and left our people disgusted… Jim W. Dean
You don’t know what that means? Imagine a doctor who passes out diseased and poisoned candy to patients who go to a hospital he owns.
I am actually describing the real nursing home business, doctors who put patients on Haldol, a major cause of dementia, then put them in nursing homes because of the dementia brought on by Haldol. On more than one occasion, we find the doctors own the nursing homes.
I have taken elderly patients, family members, one my own mother, out of such facilities, had them taken off these drugs. They recovered from their “treatment,” no “dementia,” only greed.
When the Department of Homeland Security was created, when the Patriot Acts were passed, the mechanisms for seizing America’s guns was created, oddly by the party of the National Rifle Association, who oversaw every aspect of it.
The organizations that talk the most about the constitution, about saving American freedoms, about the right to bear arms, are fronts for Wall Street, dictated to by them.
Time to clean these groups out as well.
We are told that everything decent we create will be bought, controlled, used against us. We’ve seen it. We can stop it.
The Tea Party movement, originally created to investigate 9/11 was hijacked and rerouted to save us from “socialism.” There was no “socialism,” only Wall Street pumping in their cash, aided by AIPAC, the Israeli lobby.
Now we watch Republican candidates fall all over each other, they can’t say enough about protecting the banks or giving money to finance Israel’s wars or about “winning” our own, wars we lost before they even began.
No war is ever won, not by anyone but Wall Street.
The demonstrators who are in the streets across America, the “99%” that really represent the people of the United States, what the Tea Party should have been, are there for us. Against them is the “1%” with their congress, with their unconstitutional laws, with their crooked courts, with their rigged elections and with their police departments whose only real purpose anymore is looking the other way.
I said “police departments,” not “police.” Many real police are veterans, blackmailed into lives of crime to feed their families. They too are one paycheck from homelessness, like nearly every other American that make up the 99%.
During the 60s and 70s, America still had a free press. That is gone. We still had a constitution, that went away in 2001.
The 8 years of “Bush the Lesser,” a coup de etat against America, the installation of the police state, detention without trial, blanket wire tapping without court orders (overturned eventually), illegal wars, torture made “legal,” and, of course, Wall Street behind it all.
Wall Street is more than simply theft. Wall Street is torture, murder, oppression and the onset of a new “dark age.”
The police, thus far, are there to help them.
With no free press, Americans won’t be hearing the truth. You can read it here.
Why do Americans have guns? The answer is simple. Our guns are to protect us. The problem, of course, is that the guns are useless when those who own them are being led around by the nose.
Wake up! The political system is owned and operated, Wall Street, the Israeli Lobby, the crooked press, our “out of control” police.
There is no saving it or there is no saving us. Nobody disagrees with this, no sane person anyway.
The enemy is simple, the American financial system. The heart of it is what is called “the Federal Reserve.”
The “Fed” is a criminal group of banks that runs up debt and prints counterfeit money. The “Fed” is illegal. The “Fed” is criminal.
The “Fed” is how gangs took over America, a global cabal of organized crime and bled America dry.
The “Fed” is the heart of Wall Street, the heart of worldwide crime, the engine of poverty and despair, the mother of wars and suffering.
It is a criminal conspiracy. Criminals belong in prison. It is our job to bring America to a stop until that happens. The criminals?
Much of our government, 5 Supreme Court justices, many of those who run our military and security agencies, those who run our banks, the insurance industry, “pharma” and oil, the list is huge.
The crooks are the planners, the manipulators and the weak that follow them, those who looked away on 9/11, those who looked away when America began kidnapping, torturing, wiretapping, when America began stifling free speech.
The America generations fought for has withered. The proof? One hour of watching Fox News alone is proof but it isn’t just them, its every paper, its movies, its books, its in your email, its everywhere, America has only one product it produces anymore. We are the lie factory for the world. Time for real courts and arrests, for real police, real investigations, time to end it here and now. Time for a list.
The list has to be huge, the problem is huge and the threat? They are turning us into slaves, they are destroying the lives of our children and grandchildren. “They” are unAmerican, purely unAmerican in every way. There is no room for them here, not outside prison.
Thus far, much of our own government is the enemy too, bought and paid for. Elections are bought with money.
Anyone who has taken one cent of corporate cash, one free vacation, one free golf outing, a job for a wife, a huge cash bonus for a book no one will read, every one of the “Gingrich’s,” the “Doles” and so many more need to be recognized, need to be named and must be shunned by the American people.
It took a “New Pearl Harbour” to push Americans into looking away while gangsters took everything. Every time you hear about 9/11 hijackers and Al Qaeda, its the same story, the criminal acts of Wall Street blamed on terrorists who never existed.
Invade a country, see them fight back, suddenly they are terrorists. There have always been a few nut cases, anarchists, extremists but there never has been a worldwide terror conspiracy.
That’s a “bedtime story” written by the Neocons and Wall Street, sold on 9/11 by government (s) that turned on their own people, criminal gangs who believed that “breaking a few eggs” would make the “omelet” they wanted.
Now the police, the courts, our entire government has turned against the people. They live on money we pay them, they work for us. Time to fire the lot of them.
