MEMORIAL DAY MUSINGS ---- 2014:



 CHAPTER ONE  {Excerpt}

"WAR IS A RACKET"  -- By U.S. Marine Major General Smedley Butler

"WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few -- the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.

And what is this bill?

This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations.

For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, as they are today, I must face it and speak out."

The War on Military Veterans:


========================

 "The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was every invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin . Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again . Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in . But if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit." Josiah Stamp, Pres: Bank of England, l927 http://www.silverbearcafe.com/private/10.11/gaoaudit.html http://lewrockwell.com/thomas-jeff/thomas-jeff11.1.html "The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market....The New World Order leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank." Curtis Dall book: My Exploited Father-in-Law. http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin491.htm http://www.newswithviews.com/Spingola/deanna119.htm 

 "Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life". --- John F. Kennedy James Madison, father of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, instructed: "We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties," and elaborated, "I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." "We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress & the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." ~ Abraham Lincoln ~  Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers. [Isaiah 1:7 ]

WHAT IS THE BEST MEMORIAL DAY PATRIOTISM?


"Libertarian Patriotism vs. Statist Patriotism"

(Excerpt:) Today, Memorial Day, we are exhorted to display our patriotism by supporting the troops. That’s the statist version of patriotism. It involves a deference to authority and a conformity of mindset that induces citizens to automatically support the troops regardless of what the troops are doing. The libertarian version of patriotism is completely different. It depends on an independent mindset, one that questions and analyzes ...


You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.   --– Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

"We shall have world government whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or conquest." James Paul Warburg, during hearings Senate Resolution 56, revision of the UN Charter

"Newsweek – Orwell’s Newspeak and Thought Criminals in the Mental Hospital Called America"
Newsweek/Newspeak ran a cover story, “The Plots to Destroy America,” about the danger of conspiracy theories and why government agents should use “cognitive infiltration” to infiltrate social media. The article argued that people who question the official story about current events are dangerous “extremists” and that they are guilty of what amounts to what author George Orwell called “Thought Crime” in his dystopian novel 1984.......

IMMIGRATION IS OUT OF CONTROL:



California adds 1,655 people net gain daily.
Those admired TV anchors articulated a laundry list of pools and water playgrounds closing down because of the drought. They reported on homeowners who could not water their lawns and gardens because of empty reservoirs. The anchors reported on 12 different wildfires blazing all over the state. They interviewed dozens of homeowners picking through the rubble of their homes.........

"Multicultural America: Land of Strangers"
Yesterday, my wife Sandi and I shopped at a Costco store in Denver, Colorado.  It sounded and felt like shopping in different countries with so many languages being spoken and strange modes of dress. We encountered immigrants from Pakistan, India, Mexico, China, Vietnam, Somalia, China and another half dozen countries.  Since they spoke in their native languages, we felt zero commonality with them.  We felt like strangers in our own community.......

After Elections, Politicos Transform from Border Hawks to Amnesty for Illegals:


(Excerpt:)  Our southern border with Mexico remains unsecure with no intentions to reverse the onslaught continuing to flow northward from Mexico and destinations further south.  The preponderant majority of elected officials, from both American political parties, merely engage in Kabuki theatre and talk on matters associated with the border, except six months prior to an election that effects them personally…then the rhetoric and swash buckling step up in volume and manner to lull the citizens back into a state of tranquility.  Little to nothing changes along the border.  The Border Wars continue.  The killings continue.  The drugs continue.  The human trafficking continues.  Rapes in the desert continue 

(Note:  While AZ Senators Juan McCain and Jeff "Ima" Flake are the worst examples of this post election transformation, many if not most others follow this model including AZ Rep. Matt Salmon and former Mesa Mayor, Scott Smith, now running for AZ Governor.)

THE LORD IS IN CONTROL SO WHY WORRY???


What if the Lord decides to use people to upset evil politicians, corrupt “educators” and others who do what they shouldn’t? Oh, I know, we don’t discuss all that. That’s not a debatable topic. That might require getting involved and learning something new, and we’re not sure we’re ready for that, so throttle the one who makes such an absurd suggestion and let’s all get back to personal pietism.

Satanic Black Mass at Harvard, Satanic Monument in Oklahoma
Many of Hitler’s top men were practicing occultist and Satanists like Heinrich Himmler, who conducted blood sacrifices in his castle. The theology of “Retreatism” and “unbelief” by the Christian Church made it possible for occultists and Satanists to seize control of a nation. As the Christian Church continues to retreat intellectually and scientifically, America by default will be dominated by powerful forces of darkness which history shows us have......

Jim seemed staggered by my revelation of what Secretary of War Stimson had written, and he fell back to the standard position of retreat for those who ridicule conspiracy theories.

The Rise of the American Police State
With the enormous growth of government, federal and state, it should come as little surprise that we are experiencing a fundamental shift in the relationship between the individual and the state with freedom receding and control advancing.  That shift is perhaps most evident when government agents bring to bear highly intrusive means or heavy handed tactics against individuals who have either done nothing unlawful or have violated laws that render illegal actions of no material consequence.........
