September 11: A day to remember

September 11 should not pass without remembrance of honorable people who died in an act of disgraceful cowardice. A building symbolic of democratic government had its dome blown to bits. A respected president died of (an apparent) suicide in the face of execution by thugs. Then followed concentration camps and inquisitions, and a fascist government installed – one of the minor criminals of the 20th century, Augusto Pinochet, came to power.

There have been many others, much more important criminals, such as Churchill, Stalin, el-BJ!, Henry Kissinger and Nixon, George H.W. Bush, his son, and of course, Cheney. Poroshenko is getting rave reviews but is a minor player, like Pinochet a mere puppet on the CIA string. Barack Obama: I don’t know if he has a criminal mind or just reads his lines and enjoys all the perks of being president. He has stood idly by, however, and so has a place reserved in the annals of war criminals, men who should face civilized justice followed by “up the long ladder and down the short rope*”

September 11, 1973 was the day the democratically elected government of Chile was overthrown in an US backed coup d’etat. It is a dark day in history. May we never forget Pinochet or the thousands of victims left in his wake. May we 41 years later vow that it never happens again.

Oh wait. The current puppet just announced he’s going to topple the democratically elected government of Syria. It’s 9/11! It’s on! Syria’s president, Bashar Assad, is a brave man, I hope. Our thugs, given a chance, will murder him in cold blood as they did Allende, as they did Qaddafi (to Hillary’s delight). It is sad and distressing that men of low caliber such as Obama are held in high esteem while men of real value go down.

But for every American crime, every aggressive war, new leaders rise up. One man sat by as the US attacked Serbia without just cause, his country too weak to stop the attack. Vladimir Putin has become the most important statesman on the world stage today. May Russia rise to become what the United States always said it was, but wasn’t, really.
Up the long ladder and down the short rope,
To hell with King Billy and God bless the Pope!
If that doesn’t do we’ll tear them in two
And send them to hell in their red, white and blue.”

  1. “Sometimes democracy must be bathed in blood.” – Augusto Pinochet

    “And our own safety — our own security — depends upon our willingness to do what it takes to defend this nation…” – Commander-in-Chief Obama

    “…take whatever steps necessary to end this situation.” – Augusto Pinochet

    “My basic message is one that I’ve repeated a number of times in recent months, and that is my deep, deep concern of the status of the nation’s security,” – Dick Cheney

    “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
    Benjamin Franklin

    Can a somnabulists grasp the concept of liberty? I say, yes. I think it began here…

    “In a massive shift in attitudes, voters say 45 – 40 percent the government’s anti-terrorism efforts go too far restricting civil liberties, a reversal from a January 14, 2010, survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University when voters said 63 – 25 percent that such activities didn’t go far enough to adequately protect the country.”


  2. On September 11, 1990, President H.W. Bush gave his State of the Union Address about a New World Order, 11 years before the 2001 NYC false-flag. On Sept. 11, 1991 he gave another speech about a New World Order. The date September 11th seems to have significance relating to “the West’s” imperial agenda. Coincidence?


  3. “In truth, the world has dropped its vigilance since 9/11; Western populations are exhausted by economic hard times and acrimony over the wars in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan. The charge of Islamaphobia means that Western societies have trouble confronting radical Islamists in their midst, like Major Hasan, the Tsarnaev Boston Marathon bombers, and throngs of virulently anti-Semitic Muslim immigrants in Europe. The United Nations is about as useful as was the League of Nations during the rise of fascism. As in the case of the rise of the Nazis, we naively write off the savagery of ISIS as having no place in our century, as if brutality is always premodern rather than enhanced by postmodern technology. Neo-isolationism and appeasement have swept the West and have eroded the national will to confront radical Islam in the manner of the last 1930s—with all the familiar scapegoating of the Jews and “war-mongers.”

    In sum, we are less vigilant than ever after 9/11. Our enemies are not only more audacious, but more encouraged that we are depressed. That is a bad combination if we are to stay safe from the new generation of radical Islamists.”-Victor Davis Hansen


    1. In short, you and Mr. Hansen have swallowed whole on every lie and propaganda campaign for the last 13 years. Please turn in your citizenship card at the door on your way out. You don’t have one iota of vigilance in your credulous soul.


  4. A little off topic, but this is quite interesting for the ramifications it has here in Montana, for these guys are the biggest players you never heard of. In Montana especially. I keep repeating to anyone that will listen that the religious right/government connection is a truly amazing one designed to aid the fascists in their dirty work. I never thought I’d live to see such a day in this country when fascists for Jesus were so powerful. Even here in GF they are building huge new fundamentalist churches. I kept wondering where they get there money. Now I know.
