THE MEN FLYING THE PLANES were young. Many of them were deeply, even fanatically religious. They came from a foreign country less than a generation ago. They had been taught to hate the government and the policies of the land to which they’d come; hate them with a burning hatred, as if they were the ultimate evil on earth. And so they struck.

I AM WRITING this broadcast on September 11, 2014, the thirteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Today would also have been the 81st birthday of Dr. William Pierce, the founder of the National Alliance. In 1994, Dr. Pierce suggested to us in the pages of National Vanguard that the Jewish “holy war” against non-Jewish Semites in the Middle East, oftentimes using Americans as cannon fodder, was heating up to the point that American workers ought to “stay out of tall buildings” like the World Trade Center — a remark which proved quite prescient seven years later.
Earlier today I spoke with a man who, totally frustrated by America’s decades-long involvement in Middle Eastern wars, and the terrorist blowback that that entails — and faced with one of the Establishment’s pious “We Must Remember 9/11” messages — blurted out “We can best remember by wiping out every single one of the damned Muslim vermin from the face of the Earth!”
MUCH HAS BEEN written about the effects of the Hal Turner conviction on what is left of free speech in America. I agree that it will have what lawyers and the cliché-ridden call a “chilling effect.” But so much of what has been written misses the most important fact in the case.
Hal Turner was a fake. A phony.
He was not really a critic of the regime in Washington.
THE DICTATES of the Washington regime have, with the wildly misnamed “Patriot Act,” finally taken away all of our financial privacy, which is a fundamental part of our personal privacy.
Two acquaintances of mine recently purchased automobiles for cash — no credit requested — and the interrogation they were subjected to by the dealers (necessitated by the “Patriot Act”) show how we have been cowed into surrendering the last vestiges of our freedom and privacy. One wrote:
But Buchanan has one foot inside establishment “conservatism,” and, whether due to a desire to placate that segment of his following or because of the wishful and anachronistic thinking that old men are sometimes prey to, he will at times speak as though America was still the old American Republic — as though “conservatives” like Dick Cheney were still “holding the line” against subversion and alien influence — as though America had not long since been converted into the multiracial, multicultural empire that he fears will “arise” — and as though Dick Cheney were any less a faithful servant of the empire than Obama.
PROOF WE ARE ruled and “protected” by dangerous morons can be found in this document, entitled “Crisis Controlled,” from the Virginia State Police (VSP), authored by Trooper John R. Wright.
Not only is the whole essay written on about a fifth-grade level of literacy and intelligence, not only does it characterize anyone, left or right or otherwise, who questions the constitutionality or morality of our current rulers as a “terrorist,” but it wraps itself in smarmy authority-worshipping “patriotism” of the most repellent variety imaginable, which is the opposite of real patriotism.
THE NEOCON TALK HOSTS like Hannity and Limbaugh and their coevals from the “liberal” side are making a lot of noise about the “terror suspects” who have been imprisoned at Guantanamo without trial and without legitimate charges for nigh onto a decade now.
The Republican shills say “we’ve got to be firm with these terrorists and protect Amurrica!” The Democrat shills claim to stand for the Constitution and “American values” by calling for the closing of Gitmo, though lately some have waffled on that. Both are liars, but millions of deluded Americans identify with one side or the other and have a rah-rah-for-our-team attitude, slavishly following the blogs and talk shows that keep them agitated, angry, blind to reality, and supporting one wing or another of the Evil Empire.
A READER WRITES that, in his opinion, the questions Jesse Ventura asked about waterboarding were the least uncomfortable that could have been asked. And, he adds, we can’t “descend to the moral level” of Saddam Hussein, since we’ve already passed that point:
“Why is the subject of torture being confined to waterboarding? Other forms were used in Iraq, as everyone knows.
“And in terms of increasingly ‘resembling Saddam Hussein,’ he was convicted for the murder of 148 people committed a year before the U.S. began supporting him.
JESSE VENTURA ASKS UNCOMFORTABLE QUESTIONS: Former Governor Ventura has managed to ask the obvious questions on the subject of U.S. government torture — questions that should have been asked a long time ago: “If waterboarding is okay, why don’t we let our police do it to suspects to learn what they know?… If waterboarding is okay, why didn’t we waterboard McVeigh and Nichols, the Oklahoma City bombers, to find out if there were more people involved?… We only seem to waterboard Muslims. …Have we waterboarded anybody else? Name me someone else we’ve waterboarded.”
Government nabobs and Fox News liars won’t respond truthfully, Jesse. As we biologically descend to the level of a Third World state and become ensnared in Mideastern religious wars, our government and morals and culture will increasingly resemble those of Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, and Menachem Begin. Torture included.
