I have heard from thousands of people who have expressed concerns about
a potential hypothetical: What if bad people controlled the government and
they intentionally reduced our military readiness and capacity?

What if these bad people deployed our few remaining combat assets in
various non-mission-oriented, but “politically correct” photo
opportunities? What if the only means of defending our nation from foreign
invasion (which the Bill of Rights guarantees) were to be politically

Henry Kissinger gave an address to the Bilderberger organization meeting
at Evian, France, on May 21, 1991. As transcribed from a tape recording made
by one of the Swiss delegates, he said:

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to
restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if
they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or
promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all
peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from
this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented
with this scenario, individual rights will willingly be relinquished for
the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by their world

A line from the X-Files says “The truth is out there.” Let’s play
connect the dots with some recent events.

  • Feb. 20, 1998: Two so-called “white supremacists” are apprehended and held
    on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack with a biological agent,
    believed to be anthrax. We have all been warned of the Iraqi threat of
    chemical and biological warfare. It is (under)reported that Larry Wayne
    Harris is a researcher who was experimenting on anthrax, but that the
    research was focused on how to prevent anthrax from spreading to people.

  • Feb. 20, 1998: CBS honchos are more than a little red-faced in the wake of
    Friday’s “practice” news report about a U.S. bombing of Iraq which was
    inadvertently transmitted to television stations by satellite. A technician
    at a West Virginia station was shocked and amazed when he was buzzing
    through satellite transmissions and found CBS’ Dan Rather describing the
    aircraft used in a bombing run on Baghdad. One problem, however, there were
    no aircraft used and there was no bombing run on Baghdad … yet. Have you
    seen “Wag the Dog” yet?

  • Feb. 18, 1998: The Clintonistas organize (conspire) with CNN to televise a
    “Town Hall Meeting” in the heartland. CNN tightly controls the event,
    questions and questioners are supposed to be vetted, and the objective was
    a well scripted, heavily controlled sales job. Whoops … real people asked
    real questions and the event turned into a public relations nightmare. In
    addition to the numerous outspoken critics, we did not see the many others
    that were quietly ushered from the event (perhaps in preparation for their
    IRS audits?).

  • Feb. 17, 1998: National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” chose to
    not consider one item which contradicted their preconceived view of
    reality. NPR organized a 90-minute special which overwhelmingly offered
    speakers favoring a bombing of Iraq. Apparently there was only one voice of
    opposition, Sara Flounders. Flounders is with the International Action
    Center. She was given one minute to speak, and she was the only speaker cut
    off. In fact, NPR actually deleted her one minute comment of opposition
    from the “official transcript” of the program.

  • February 1998: The Pentagon expresses concern (from sources speaking only on
    conditions of anonymity/career survival) that there is no clearly defined
    strategy for military action in the Gulf by this administration.

  • February 1998: Col. David Hackworth reports on the brave and
    soon to be career-challenged General Hendrix announcing his first-line
    combat troops would require 180 days to become “combat ready”.

  • We do not have the capacity we enjoyed in 1991 for Desert Storm.
    Thanks largely to the Clinton administration we do not have the logistical
    support, the manpower, the readiness, or the allied coalition we had
    previously. U.S.-sparked military action in Iraq is a colossal accident
    waiting to happen.

  • Feb. 15, 1998: Egypt’s President Mubarak has warned the U.S. that any plan
    to divide Iraq would not be acceptable, and would precipitate long-term
    escalated aggression.

  • Feb. 14, 1998: Iraq and Iran have been reported to have kissed and made up
    sufficiently to join forces against the aggressor infidel.

  • February 1998: The Clinton administration is in chaos. Former Clintonistas
    Leon Panetta, George Stephanopoulos and Dee Dee Myers are equivocating,
    and scrambling for plausible deniability.

  • Feb. 11, 1998: Russia has indicated (several times) that they not only
    object to a U.S. attack on Iraq but are prepared to support Iraq (according
    to Egypt’s Al-sha’n newspaper, Baghdad requested $20 billion in urgent
    military and humanitarian aid from Russia).

It has become common knowledge, that in matters grand and insignificant
our President has demonstrated not only a willingness but enthusiasm for
lying. The alleged defenders of the fourth estate have demonstrated by
their actions and inaction that many of them are either tragically
incompetent or unindicted co-conspirators.

As events unfold over the coming months please remember the words of the
revered Hank Kissinger: “… when told there was an outside threat … real
or promulgated … individual rights will be willingly relinquished. … “
