after a long hiatus from maintaining this site, i’ve come to the following conclusions:
the problem of the United States runs deeper than i had first thought. we are at the point of Financial Breakdown Crisis and Disintegration as a Nation.
we have been almost completely de-industrialized… i believe the US only has about 10 million industrial workers left… everything else has been outsourced and globalized. the only way out of this is re-industrialization and a New Deal/Marshall Plan for the US. the private sector will never do it. this is the eternal truth of oligarchy.. it will always act in the interest of The Few.
the New York “Federal” Reserve owns the gov’t. we must audit the Fed, clean out all of the trash, bring the crimes out of the shadows and into the public eye, re-nationalize it as the Bank of the United States, and issue credit for productive enterprise instead of paper speculation and derivatives.
both the Democratic and Republican parties are corrupt to the core… parties are obsolete..
the only way to move forward is to develop class consciousness along economic lines, NOT ethnic lines. so long as one of us is poor, all of us suffer as a society.
agreements and policy must benefit The One (individual), The Few (minorities), and The Many (majority) for them to be sustainable… balancing these three eternal groups is the purpose of the US Constitution (this comes from Machiavelli, another figure much slandered thruout history… hence Machiavellianism)
anyone preaching Separatism or Violence is an agent provocateur and should be ignored… the larger the group we assemble in opposition the more likely we will have agitation by agents provocateur. we must be ready for this so it gains no traction among us.
we cannot put the abstractions of money, the “free” market, the business cycle, the Austrian school, etc over the value of human lives, ending poverty, providing education and health care… we must raise the standard of living of everyone.
we must get rid of ideology in favor of high tech economic development.
we must put limits on bankers and financiers, financial speculators, asset strippers, etc and get back to Real Productive economy.
paper on paper gambling is parasitical to the Real Economy.
derivatives must be taxed out of existence with a 1% or greater Tobin Tax (consider this a sales tax on speculation)
the truth about “peak oil”, “global warming” and other Malthusian pseudo sciences must be exposed
insurance companies are some of the most destructive institutions in society
the policies we need to fix america are:
return to Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal
Marshall Plan for the United States
nationalize the Federal Reserve
end the secret Wall Street Drug War
end Imperialism in the Middle East in favor of Economic Development.
force Israel/Palestine to come to a peace agreement beneficial to both parties
end the new Cold War vs Russia and China
abolition of NATO
abolition of IMF/World Bank
reinstatement of Glass-Steagall, separating banks from financial services and speculation forever.
end of paper on paper transactions
end of wars of conquest on whole planet
exposure of Global Warming, Peak Oil, and any “austerity” policies as frauds
breakup of private monopolies and trusts
full investigation of Ford Foundation and its many tentacles
Webster Tarpley’s economic reform program
instant run-off voting
crash program to cure ALL diseases
crash program to build 200 new nuclear reactors
crash program to re-instate NASA manned space program including development of Moon
construction of 50,000 miles of high speed Mag-Lev trains
institution into law of FDR’s Second Bill of Economic Rights
development of hydrogen production from green technology
conversion of sea water into H^2 for clean fuel
conversion of petroleum infrastructure to clean, pollution-free H^2
conversion of internal combustion engines to run H^2. we dont need to completely redesign cars, we can convert existing vehicles to run H^2 cheaply
revival of American School of Political economy (protective tariffs for US workers, gov’t investment in infrastructure programs, national bank for growth and development)
end the Wall Street casino, zero-sum game economy
building of new hospitals and schools. healthy educated workers are our greatest wealth.
development of US as a republic of equals and strong independent nation-state, free from outside influence of any kind…. political, economic, raw materials, etc.
end of all adjustable-rate mortgages tied to LIBOR (london interbank lending rate)
end of all foreclosures on primary homes.
I am going to start the fight to win our country back. please join me.
Dr. Brzezinski said some VERY interesting things this morning. He was outlining a strategy for Obama, explain the role of National Security Adviser (and his controlling influence on the President), threatening Russia, and there were many rather bizarre comments made by the talking heads in regard to him.
Great stuff, confirming the new target is Russia, not Iraq or Iran, not even Pakistan… tho they will use Pakistan to destabilize both China and Russia.
Brzezinski: Jim Jones, Obama need a ‘cohesive relationship’
Nov. 25: Former national security adviser and Mika’s father Zbigniew Brzezinski discusses the rapport President-elect Barack Obama should be expected to have with members of Cabinet.
don’t call it a comeback, i’ve been here for years..
from the WSJ:
Many of the Republicans emerging as potential members of the Obama administration have professional and ideological ties to Brent Scowcroft, a former national-security adviser turned public critic of the Bush White House.
The relationship between the president-elect and the Republican heavyweight suggests that Mr. Scowcroft’s views, which place a premium on an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, might hold sway in the Obama White House.
So, expect an Israeli-Palestinian Peace relatively soon.. they’ve had 90% of an agreement settled for years anyhow so this isn’t as big a stretch as it might seem.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who was deputy national-security adviser under Mr. Scowcroft in the George H.W. Bush administration, is almost certain to be retained by Mr. Obama, according to aides to the president-elect. Richard Haass, a Scowcroft protégé and former State Department official, could be tapped for a senior National Security Council, State Department or intelligence position. Mr. Haass currently runs the Council on Foreign Relations.
Other prominent Republicans with close ties to Mr. Obama — including former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed the Democrat in the final days of the campaign, and Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar, a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — share Mr. Scowcroft’s philosophy.
“I think most of my close associates have a generally similar view,” Mr. Scowcroft said in an interview. “What’s the old story about birds of a feather?”
Mr. Scowcroft said his biggest piece of advice for the new administration was that it should make a renewed push to help broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. He also endorsed Mr. Obama’s call for diplomatic engagement with Iran.
Also, NO war with Iran. Biden already let the cat out of the bag when he told Israel to get used to the idea of a nuclear Iran.
“Compared to the other alternatives we face with Iran, we ought to give it a really good, sincere try,” Mr. Scowcroft said. “I have a hunch that we’ll be more successful than a lot of detractors think.”
Obama aides declined to comment on the substance of the conversations. A transition aide said the president-elect has “deep respect for Brent Scowcroft.”
Mr. Scowcroft’s re-emergence caps a tumultuous few years for the 83-year-old former Air Force general. In the run-up to the Iraq war, Mr. Scowcroft wrote an opinion column in The Wall Street Journal arguing against an invasion and warning that it would “seriously jeopardize, if not destroy” the Bush administration’s war on terrorism. In speeches and interviews, he regularly criticized both the decision to invade Iraq and the Bush team’s handling of the war effort.
Now this is where it gets controversial. Bush/Cheney got away from the 9/11 plan when they invaded Iraq. There’s a huge war in heaven over this which came to a head in Sep 2007. Now the Neocons are OUT.
Essentially, 9/11 was a grand strategy to carve up Russia, not the Middle East.
