In the hundreds of reports I review each day on the most important events occurring in the world I couldn’t help be moved by the picture of a banner during the largest protest in Israeli history yesterday that simply read… “An entire generation wants a future.”
In reading these poignant words written from the depths of a soul being robbed of its future I became deeply saddened because the United States, the one nation in this world that should have been at the forefront of these massive protests sweeping the globe, continues to remain totally silent.
The continued silence of these Americans is even more shocking when one realizes that this is the weekend they celebrate their Labor Day Holiday (5 September) with nary a one of them even knowing that this day of memorial came into being because of the blood shed and lives lost due to a tyrannical government that forgot who they were really serving.
The year was 1894, the place Chicago, when thousands of peaceful protesters striking against the Pullman Palace Car Company, who cut their wages so more money could be put into the pockets of the elites, were violently attacked after President Grover Cleveland ordered over 12,000 US Marshalls and Army Troops to attack them killing 13 and wounding 57 more.
In what is now known as the Great Pullman Strike (the most violent in US history) the consciousness of America was shocked at the barbarity of their government backing the corporate and banking elite classes against the people they were supposed to be serving. Over 250,000 protesters in 27 States took to the streets in protest against their government’s tyranny causing the elites to retreat in terror lest they become the next victims at the hands of raging mobs.
In a quick appeasement to these workers, President Cleveland pushed through the US Congress the legislation to make Labor Day a national holiday 6 days after the strike ended, and it was passed unanimously.
Seven years later, in 1901, the American people were still on the verge of open revolt against the elite corporate chieftains and banksters when Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt became the 26th United States President upon the assassination of President William McKinley by the avowed anarchist Leon Czolgosz.
Knowing how close his nation was to the abyss of revolution, one of President Roosevelt’s first acts as leader of the American people was to deliver a 20,000-word address to Congress asking it to curb the power of large corporations. Known as the peoples “trust buster” (corporations in those days were called trusts), Roosevelt brought America back from the brink of that revolutionary abyss by remembering that governments are there to serve their citizens, not the other way around, and that corporations or banks that become to large and powerful also have the power to destroy.
Fast forwarding to today, one cannot help but be saddened that the lives of those who were lost to keep America from going up in revolutionary flames have not only been forgotten, they are despised by a generation walking down the same path to oblivion those once great hero’s of yesterday warned them not to take.
And to see how grotesquely distorted America has become one only need look at the reports from the Obama regime that are now openly referring to these once free people as nothing more than a pieces of the new “federal family.”
To understand the reason America has fallen so far in barely a century, one need only understand, that since their founding, these people have always known that their press establishment is nothing more than the bought and paid for mouthpieces for a corporate-banking-political establishment intent upon total domination and subjugation of everyone who stands in their way.
America wouldn’t even have become a nation if it wasn’t for the great Founding Father Thomas Paine striking out against the “mainstream” press of his time with the publication of his pamphlet Common Sense that united the people of the then British Colonies in open revolt leading to the founding of the United States.
The Great Pullman Strike massacre, likewise, wouldn’t have been known about by the American people if not for the efforts of The American Railway Union (ARU), the largest labor union of its time, who printed millions of leaflets and distributed them all across the nation telling the American people the truth of what was happening because no “mainstream” newspaper in the entire United States (all owned by the corporations) would allow it to be told.
“As much as things change they also stay the same,” the old saying goes, and in today’s America this has become so apparent it is truly frightful to behold….with one major difference…and unlike nearly the entire world’s population today…these people have all but ceased caring and really believe that their silence is going to protect them.
The atrocities committed by, and upon, the American people today are beyond astounding to the point where one cannot help but shudder in sorrow at how far these once great people have fallen.
And the reason they have fallen so far is simple to understand, unlike every single generation that has gone before them, the American people of today have become total and complete sycophants [self-seeking, servile flatterer; fawning parasite] to their corporate-political-banking “mainstream” propaganda media structure that serves them nothing more than half-truths, at best, and lies, at the worst.
Even worse, the American people of today, and unlike every single generation that has gone before them, have ceased listening to the modern day Thomas Paine’s and American Railway Union equivalents continuing to warn them about the greater dangers to come.
And the reason they have stopped listening is as incompressible to understand as it is dangerous….they actually believe and act upon everything the “mainstream” propaganda tells them to…even when they know they are being lied to and deceived!
Nothing illustrates this more than the news this past week that the US banking giant Goldman Sachs (who was given untold billions of American taxpayer money) released a secret 54-page report [authored by Goldman strategist Alan Brazil] to a few of its largest investors warning that the entire global economic system is on the verge of total collapse.
Goldman Sachs, who not only paid to put President Obama in office, and surrounded him with nearly all of his “advisors,” and has done more than any other corporation in history to destroy America…but who, according to their CEO Lloyd Blankfein, are doing “God’s Work.”
Another shocking example is this past week’s landmark announcement from CERN that the “Cloud Experiment” conducted under the leadership of Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark has proven conclusively that cosmic rays from our Sun are solely to blame for Global Warming and Climate Change, and not anything that humans have done, or even could do in the future.
But in the bizarre world that passes for American logic these critical stories won’t be known to these people, not because there aren’t organizations like ours to tell them the truth, NO!, rather that they have been “trained” like obedient pets not to listen to us.
According to this distorted American logic, if it was used by their forbearers, the United States would never have been founded because the “mainstream” British press would have told them they’d be wasting their money if they bought Thomas Paine’s Common Sense pamphlet. Likewise, they would never have known about the Great Pullman Strike massacre because the “mainstream” press told them not to buy the American Railway Union’s newsletter that told them the truth.
And so today, as the world continues to burn down around them, these American people continue to live their lives in desperate silence falsely believing that by ignoring the truth they will somehow be saved from the greater horrors to come. After all, it is easier to ridicule and ignore the truth when the “mainstream” media tells you it’s ok to do so….but when do you start asking yourself why?
Now I’m here to tell you that just because you believe a lie it doesn’t make it true…and if in hearing a warning you fail to heed it you have only yourself to blame for the consequences.
Unlike you, however, we have gone through more wars than you can ever imagine, and the main weapon we have always wielded is the same one we’re using now…Truth, Knowledge and Information, none of which any war can be fought or won without.
Unfortunately, though, and unlike our enemies, we have no corporate-banking-political-public taxpayer funds to keep us operating….but neither did Thomas Paine, or the American Railway Union, and too many other such people and organizations to mention.
The difference between the past and now is not that there aren’t those like us who continue to fight these monsters, but rather that the people who once helped keep truth alive have nearly all gone silent.
