LIES: Pillars of the State
By Lisa Guliani
"Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
Mark Twain, Chronicle of Young Satan
On Monday, September 8th, President George W. Bush informed the nation and the lame-duck U.S. Congress that he now needs a whopping $87 Billion to maintain U.S. military objectives in Iraq and Afghanistan. This eye-popping amount of "money" is to be used to maintain the ongoing death, doom, destruction and decimation also known as "defeating the enemies of freedom" also known as "securing the interests of the cabal and making Poppa Bush gleefully wet his trousers."
On Wednesday September 17th, 2003, George W. Bush calmly announced to reporters that there was no evidence linking Saddam Hussein with the events of September 11, 2001. Just like that, our man George reversed himself. You see, George has changed his mind. Forget about what he said BEFORE, ok? Never you mind that no "weapons of mass destruction" have materialized thus far. Never mind that. That was yesterday. This is today - and today, George W. has his hand out once again, expecting more of our fake money and more multinational troops "over there" to assist in the slaying of more phantom dragons. George wants to replenish the war chest, you see. Oh yeah, and he wants LESS focus on the inconsistencies and outright lies of the last couple of years, so if you don't mind, just forget all that business, will ya?
George wants bygones to be bygones. Oh, and his administration would like us all to know that they never SAID Saddam had anything to do with 9/11. So please get that one straight. We must have IMAGINED they said it. In reality, on some distant planet in a far-off galaxy, they only IMPLIED it. They ALLUDED to it - as Vernon Jordan would say, "ova and ova and ova". So what. We don't need your stinkin' WMD's, says Dubbya. We get our war without them. Our arsenal is complete with twisted truths, outright lies and smokescreens. Throw in a little backpedaling and we're good to go. Forget too, about the deadly drumbeat of yesterday, George's formal pretext for this "war" - faked documents which the White House knew all about, yet used anyway. George wants and needs your blind allegiance - even if he lied, which he did, which he continues to do. We're supposed to support him and his "war" anyway. After all, he's our man.
We are to forget the outrageous loss of human life which continues even now - today - on ALL fronts. We are at war, my friends and such are the prices to be paid in wars and apparently, in peace time. George is a "nation-builder". Mind you, he has no interest in "reconstructing" a crumbling America. No, our fake money is slotted for foreign aid and assistance. We Americans are on our own as far as that's concerned.
We need to help George and his buddies clean up the terrific mess they've made of the Middle East. George can't clean up his messes by himself. He can't clean up his lies either, for that matter.
Bush has spoken of " a collection of killers.desperately trying to undermine Iraq's progress and throw the country into chaos". Yes, we are certainly witnessing the shenanigans of a "collection of killers", I'll agree with that. Witness too, how the war hawks are still dividing, distracting and diverting our attention from the lies.
They need to maintain the mental conditioning process and the status quo and the flat-line American mentality. We are presumed to be so stupid as to believe that this war is "necessary" - that it is "morally imperative" to waste innocent people, steal their resources and obliterate entire countries. We're dealing with a "new morality" here. This steroidal flexing of U.S. military muscle has failed to impress the rest of the world, but it damn sure impresses George and his buddies. The "silver-spoon" gang has spoken and so go their armies - the armies of the bankers - also known as OUR troops. Blow a kiss to your sons and daughters, because they are in this fight for the long haul. George doesn't give a rat's ass if they ever come home. George has other plans to implement.
The "war" is not about weapons of mass destruction. The war is about oil and control and bumper crops of poppy seeds and enrichment of a few maniacal criminals with champagne tastes who walk in the shadows. Dead American soldiers aren't all that
important in their world - or George's, for that matter. Dead Iraqis don't count either. . But let's not focus on THAT unpleasantness. We have nukes to drop and many itchy fingers waiting in the wings.
William Kristol, war-hawk cheerleader extraordinaire, doesn't think we should worry about "individual line items" in Bush's appropriation request. Kristol is the "man" with the mouth and if HE says the additional funds are an $87 Billion Well Spent (The Weekly
Standard, 10/6/2003 issue, http://www.weeklystandard.com), then we better just keep our mouths shut and wave our pom-poms, too. It would seem that the Bush administration is quickly falling out of favor, out of "usefulness" with the cabal. The "machine" has developed a few squeaks and the Bush crew is becoming defensive under increasing scrutiny and objection to his phony "war on terror". Kristol is also unhappy with Congress, characterizing congressional complaints about Bush's " $87 Billion request" as "unjustified and unenlightened". There's that word again. Oh, to be as "enlightened" as the privileged few.
Moreover, it is recommended that the American people, as well as the lame-duck Congress should (get this) trust the executive branch to get things right in the Middle East. Who's he kidding? Kristol goes on to tell us that (this funding request) "is an absolutely necessary initiative in America's campaign against global terrorism." Remember, you're supposed to "buy into" the above statement just like you're supposed to believe all the other lies.
Are you getting the picture? Everybody keeps lying to us, and they know we know they lied. Many people have been killed because of the lies being told. Yet, they're saying, "so what?" Let's make war anyway. We're expected to bend over (again) and FORK over what's left of our paychecks in blind allegiance and full support of the U.S. government's disgusting, despicable murder and destruction policies. We are to be "enlightened" citizens and continue to finance these crimes against humanity.
"We, the People" are a captive and presumedly stupid audience. Kristol's attempt to conjure up some splinter of genuine credibility within the Bush administration would be laughable if it wasn't so despicable and transparent. We are to support liars and murderers and thieves and revel in their maniacal monologues. We are expected to "get with the program" - with the "new morality" or lack thereof, and show President-Implementer-Select-Bush he's our man. We're supposed to cough up some more money so the world can transform into one enormous killing field soaked in blood. Is it our DUTY to aid and abet these criminals and traitors and in the process, become criminals ourselves? What about honesty? What price must we pay for truth to appear?
However great, I say we pay it. Lies have become pillars of the State.
"Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing."
