“African Americans: And America’s Hypocrisy”

By Fahim A. Knight-EL

The United States Government has spent close to three (3) trillion dollars in Iraq in an unjust war, in order to be in the best position to steal Oil and we know who is behind this. Yet, poor and oppressed people in the 1990s were charged with wrecking the United States economy—does anyone else see what’s going on? Over eighty (80) million people in America do not have health insurance and this writer wants to go on record to say, he supports socialize medicine and universal health care plans where as all Americans can have adequate health care at no cost. This writer does not mean those watered-down health care plans that have been written, sanctioned, and agreed upon by the medical conglomerates and inspired by powerful corporate lobbies of the medical associations, which Senator Barack Obama, Senator John McCain and Senator Hillary Clinton have been advocating. Why not?

The United States Government continues to spend the U.S. citizen’s tax money unlawfully and against the will of the American people by financing the Iraq War. Thus, instead of former President Bill Clinton and United States Congress in the 1990s attacking America's powerless—“have nots', the defenseless poor. But strategically did not acknowledge or take on the GREATEST WELFARE ISSUE, WHICH WAS NOT AID FOR DEPENDING CHILDREN, BUT AID TO DEPENDENT FOREIGN NATIONS. The United States tax dollars are used indiscriminately to support the nations of Israel and Egypt. These are two Welfare States that have been on the U.S. Taxpayers roll for many years. (Reference: Earl Ofari Hutchinson; "The Crisis In Black and Black").

This writer heard on NPR’s program Democracy Now on July 21, 2008 in which former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and her Vice Presidential running mate Rosa Clemente were nominated by the Green Party as their presidential and vice presidential nominee for the 2008 election. They both spoke passionately about the political, social and economic issues facing America and presented an outside the box perspective that was quite refreshing from Senator Obama and Senator John McCain political views. Presidential hopeful McKinney also talked about the struggles to overcome the restrictive laws that governs the rights of a Third Party to appear on the ballot in all fifty (50) States. This writer in the 1980s backed and supported the New Alliance Party Presidential Candidate, Dr. Lenora Fulani and understands firsthand, the difficulties and struggles associated with trying to get placed on the ballot in all fifty (50) States.

This writer canvas many neighborhoods on behalf of Dr. Lenora Fulani taking signatures of registered voters who agreed that we needed a Third Party that differed from the two corporate parties—Republican and Democrat. This writer does encourage the Keeping It Real Think Tank audience to take a look at the Green Party’s planks; if nothing else American Democracy needs a Third Party.

This is not the topic that the Keeping It Real Think Tank asked me to address and write on; they wanted me focus on some aspect of Black America. This writer has not heard or read Senator Barack Obama's speech on race giving some months ago in Philadelphia or his recent Father's Day speech to black men. Sorry, Senator Obama is not qualified to address either topic; this writer does not recall him backing and supporting the historic Million Man March back on October 16, 1995, which over two (2) million black men came to Washington D.C. seeking Atonement, Reconciliation, and Responsibility. Black men do not see Obama in the sense of traditional black leadership; although, many support his candidacy, but he has not done anything to be considered a black leader (people are trying to equate him to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Minister Malcolm X, he doesn't come near these two great icons these two black leaders paid a price) and most of all he doesn't speak for me and contrary to opinion, the black community is not a monolithic community, perhaps you can tell that relative to many of my commentaries. He is more of a Zionist Jewish leader than a black leader; they control his tongue, politics and have put huge amounts of money behind his candidacy, there lies his true allegiance. Many blacks do not see this deception; it would not surprise me, if they have not granted him dual citizenship status (Israeli and American).

This is the Pledge that black men took at the Million Man March; this was sufficient enough for me, but this writer is quite sure that Senator Obama wasn't allowed to incorporate this in his Father's Day Speech because these principles were given and spoken by Minister Louis Farrakhan and it would not be political expedient for Senator Obama to embrace this so-called controversial black leader. So, this writer decided to remind the two (2) million black men that attended the Million Man March and the millions that watched this historical event on CNN news of the Pledge they took. This writer unlike Senator Obama can quote Minister Farrakhan and do not give damn who like or not; thus, I would find more integrity and credibility in Minister Farrakhan or Reverend Jeremiah Wright delivering a Father's Day Message to black men more so than, Senator Obama because Minister Farrakhan is black and he truly understands the black experience. Minister Farrakhan at the March asked all the black men in attendance to commit to these Nine Principles.

I pledge that from this day forward, I will strive to love my Brother as I love myself.

I pledge from this day forward, I will strive to improve myself spiritually, morally, socially, politically and economically for the benefit myself, my family and my people

I pledge, that I will strive to build businesses, build houses, build hospitals, build factories, and enter into international trade, for the good of myself, and my people.

I pledge, that from this forward, I will never raise my hand with a knife or a gun to beat, hurt, or shoot any member of my family, or any human being, except in self-defense.

I pledge, that from this forward, I will never abuse my wife by striking her or disrespecting her, for she is the mother of my children and the producer of my future.

I pledge, that from this forward, I will never engage in the abuse of children--little boys or little girls--for sexual gratification. But I will let them grow in peace to be strong men and women for the future of our people.

I will never again use the 'B' word to describe any female, but particular my own black sister.

I pledge, that from this forward, I will not poison my body with drugs or that which is destructive to my health and well being.

I pledge, that from this forward, I will support Black newspapers, Black radio, and black television. I will support Black artists who clean up their acts to show respect for themselves and respect for their people, and respect for the ears of the human family. (Reference: Kim Martin Sadler; “Atonement, The Million Man March”).

Black Americans have a Gross National Product (GNP) of approximately 800 billion dollars which is equal to and surpassed many European Nations (but the black dollar does not circulate not even one time around their community) and if they were a sovereignty nation, they would rank as having the tenth (10) largest economy in the world. Thus, that sounds very impressive and definitely stands as one of the great accomplishments, in particular for a people who has risen just in one hundred fifty (150) years from perhaps one of the worst inhumane conditions ever recorded in human history—Chattel Slavery (1555-1865) to perhaps electing a black man to the office of President of the United States of America, the highest office in the world. Some would argue that to-be very impressive; what else possible they could desire? (Reference: George C. Fraser; "Race For Success").

The former President of Morehouse College Benjamin E. Mays (this was Dr. Martin Luther King's mentor) who authored the book titled, "Born to Rebel" stated," Even white contemporaries of mine can never know the humiliating conditions under which Negroes had to live because of enforced segregation in my day. The segregated system was so cruel, so inhumane, and so destructive to the development of manhood and character that white America can never really know the damage it did to the mind and spirit of millions of Negroes who lived and died under that system. It may be that this book will fill the vacuum in the thinking of young Negroes and whites as well. If certain conditions are unbearable now, they were a hundred times worse at the turn of the century and during the first fifty years of the twentieth century. This is not to say that we can afford to be complacent and satisfied with the progress recently made in Negro-white relations. No such inference must be drawn from this book. The United States is a rich country, the most prosperous nation in history. Despite this fact, there are millions who live in despair and poverty or on the brink of poverty. Millions live in slums and hundreds of thousands unemployed. Many young people drop out of school and become delinquents; they see no hope, and some take to rioting. All of these things take place in one of the most literate and enlightened countries in the world." (Reference: Benjamin Mays; “Born to Rebel”).

It is faulty thinking and reasoning to measure the success of an entire race on the token success of lets say Oprah Winfrey, Tiger Woods (I guess he is black based on American standards of race) Bill Cosby, Russell Simmons, Bob Johnson, Michael Jordan, Jay-Z, Irvin "Magic Johnson" and yes, even on Barack Obama’s success or any other black token and paint a broad stroke of group prosperity and success of our race based on the net worth of a few petite-bourgeoisie blacks, is not only ludicrous, but insane. African-Americans still ranks high in infant mortality, homicide, Aids, prison incarceration, poverty, high school dropout, drug and alcohol addiction, and in a lot of other negative social categories. American prisons have swelled to anywhere from two million to four million prisoners incarcerated throughout local, state, federal prisons and jails. Thus, over sixty (60) percent of the U.S. prison population consists of young black men between the ages of 16-35. We are not innately criminals nor are we a lawless people. (Reference: Harriet A. Washington; “Medical Apartheid).

Judge Bruce Wright in his monumental book titled, "Black Robes, White Justice" stated, "My persistent concern has long been the white judges who, in their large numbers, are called upon daily to preside over the trials of black defendants accused of crime. Are they really qualified for such sociological tasks, only incidentally mixed with law? If so, what are the peculiar circumstances that define their competence? Is it the survival in them of some plantation concept of social divisions in life? What do they study in college or law school that might tend to qualify them to preside over the doom or liberty of strangers to their kinds of neighborhoods, of aliens to the way of life, of foreigners and outsiders to their clubs, their churches, their folkway? What magic abolishes color in their eyes and gives them instant objectivity and a license to analyze human foibles entirely divorced from the historical truth of racism? How, indeed, does one annul one's heritage and that of one's forefathers in this land from which the family came? (Reference: Bruce Wright; "Black Robes, White Justice")

Judge Wright goes on to explain, "For those of the inner city, as our dark enclaves are so euphemistically called, the judges are the assembly-line feeders of the prison system. Those in the system--whether prisoners, jailers or judges--who dare to speak of rehabilitation are regarded as wild-eyed speculators about the human spirit. They are accused of having more concern for the criminal than for the victims of crime. This abandonment of concepts of rehabilitation leads to society's preoccupation only with custody. This results in warehousing of offenders. The mean neighborhoods from which they come are neighborhoods transferred to the prisons. Little wonder that one black survivor of the inmate rebellion at Attica could weep an unanswered, perhaps unanswerable question to world. 'How in the hell we gonna be rehabilitated,' he asked, 'when we ain't never been habilitated in the first place?' " (Reference: Bruce Wright; "Black Robes, White Justice").

This writer spent over fifteen years working with inmates on the rehabilitation side and he has read and reviewed many Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI) reports, as well as spent many years talking with black inmates, lawyers, judges, probation and parole officials, case managers, unit managers, wardens, etc. The majority of the PSI reports of these inmates had similar social and psychological markers. For example, many of the black inmates came from broken homes—single parent where they were raised by mothers, absentee fathers, drug and alcohol abuse, poverty stricken, physical abuse, etc. The majority of their criminal convictions were property crimes and drug trafficking convictions or other drug related charges. Some of these black inmates had entered into a life of crime at a very early age out of economic survival in order meet the basic needs of food, clothing and shelter. (Reference: William P. Benjamin; ”African Americans in the Criminal Justice System”).

Remember it was the liberal President Bill Clinton in the 1990s that advocated and eventually became legislation—the three strikes and your out (Habitual Felony Law), which sent more black men to prison than the Republican Reagan-Bush administration. Those with felony convictions are stripped of their right to vote and can not bear firearms, even after paying their debt to society. But guess what, they are still required to pay taxes and are stripped of some basic constitutional rights. Since Senator Obama is a member of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. Congress, this writer wonders, why Obama hasn’t put forth a bill in Congress to restore the rights of these disenfranchised black fathers in America? This is a level of hypocrisy from which he and other politicians alludes when addressing issues of crime. Also, many of the black fathers that Senator Obama was speaking of can not become gainfully employment because of having a felony conviction on their record. But Scooter Libby and Karl Rove and the boys can commit all types of crimes and this system allows a preferential treatment to justice, which is often based on race and class. (Reference: Tim Wise; White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son").

Our "economic disadvantage status" renders us victims in a very profitable system called the prison industrial complex. In approximately, 1981 the United States Congress and the United States Courts passed the Sentence Reform Acts (there has been some amended versions in particular in 2000 to this act), where the U.S. Courts and the United States Department of Justice (Federal Bureau of Prisons) passed a law requiring all federal convicted defendants in violation of a federal stature would be mandated to serve an 85% active prison sentence of incarceration in federal custody. This legislation and law is interpreted to meaning, a convicted federal defendant (often black and Hispanics) will be committed to doing longer prison terms without the benefit of parole (the Department of Justice has actual phased out the U.S. Parole Commission).

In addition, Congress passed the mandatory sentencing guidelines, moreover, stripping U.S. Judges of judicial flexibility in the areas of imposing sentencing length and terms. It has been a criminal justice travesty for first time offenders who entered US Courts having committed misdemeanors and perhaps did not belong in prison were actually receiving active prison sentencing based on United States law and policy.

This writer can recall at the Million Man March on October 16, 1995 the Reverend Jesse Jackson was one of the presenters and he brought to national and international attention a young African American female named Kimba Smith who was an aspiring academic and scholastic student at Hampton University in Virginia. Ms. Smith had met a Nigerian student and became romantically involved, but little did she know that her Nigerian boy friend was a drug trafficker that was distribution large volumes of cocaine and after becoming indicted; he committed suicide while on the run from law enforcement. Ms. Smith became the target of United States Prosecutors because after the Nigerian boy friend committed suicide; it was evident that someone had to be punished. Thus, she was eventually charged and convicted on Federal Drug Conspiracy charges and this young college student with a clean criminal record was sentence to over twenty (20) years in Federal Prison. (Reference: Emerge Magazine article on Kimba Smith).

Kimba Smith by 1995 had already served over six (6) years in Federal Correctional Institute (FCI) Danbury, Connecticut and it was Reverend Jackson who called for Congress and the U.S. Courts to review the mandatory sentencing guidelines, but more specifically this public policy was adversely affecting defendants like Kimba Smith who did not belong in prison. Jackson speech on that day perhaps had more substance than the keynote addressed delivered by Minister Louis Farrakhan, the convener of the Million Man March and the leader of the Nation of Islam.

Reverend Jackson was also critical of laws that gave stiffer penalties for one having crack cocaine possession versus powder cocaine, the former viewed as the black man's drug of choice and latter viewed as the white man's drug of choice, which blacks were criminally penalized more harsher than those white defendants who were perhaps caught with possessing powder cocaine. The U.S. Courts recently had a reversal in the crack cocaine laws. Reverend Jackson's advocacy led to President Clinton prior to leaving office in 2000 pardoning Kimba Smith. But there a was real criminal that Clinton pardon in Marc Rich who had defrauded huge sums of money from U.S. Banking and lending institutions and had been on the U.S. Justice Department Most Wanted List for years. He was living in some European country where the U.S. did not share extradition laws.
These type white collar and Elitist criminals have been getting this type preferential treatment for years. This writer believes President Clinton after leaving office in 2000 knew as a Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberger agent that the world was preparing to change; 9/11 would alter national and international jurisprudence systems and under the now present 2001 U.S. Patriot Act, it would have made it difficult for criminals like Rich to hide and evade U.S. style justice because of the long arm afforded to the U.S Patriot Act.

Dr. W.E.B Dubois who authored the book "The Souls of Black Folk" describes our American predicament in a most eloquent and definitive way, he stated, "After the Egyptian and Indian, the Greek and Roman, the Teuton and Mongolian, the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world,--a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his twoness,--an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two un-reconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder." (Reference: W.E.B Dubois; "The Souls of Black Folk")

However, one should not make any mistake about the predicament of black men in America; it is not coincidental that crime and drugs are so pervasive in large cities such as Baltimore, Philadelphia, Camden, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Los Angles, Newark, Richmond, Chicago, Gary, East Saint Louis, Milwaukee, Memphis, Oakland, Cleveland, Cincinnati , Washington, DC, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, Miami, Los Vegas, Little Rock, Portland, Seattle, etc., as well as many small towns throughout America. The drug trade is a lucrative national and international business blacks do not control the manufacturing or the high level of distribution where drugs are transported from Columbia, South America and from Central Asia—Afghanistan and from South East Asia.

The smuggling of dope (heroin) and cocaine into the United States requires having aircrafts and ships, as well as being able to maneuver across international waters and airspace going undetected; this alone would take huge amounts of resources, powerful connections and, a level of sophistication that most black drug kingpins do not have these untouchable acquaintances, in particular since 9/11.

You remember Colonel Oliver T. North, President Ronald Reagan, Vice President George W.H. Bush, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Nicaragua Contras had circumvented the United States Constitution, in which U.S. Congress were unaware that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Agent North was fighting a private covert war (using taxpayers money) in Nicaragua against Daniel Ortega and Sandinistas .Although, the United States Treasury Department and U.S. Government had imposed economic sanctions against Iran, but this deal involved oil, arms, money and dope, an international triangle of corruption on the highest level. These chains of events took place in the early 1980s. (Reference: by Executive Intelligence Review; Dope, Inc)

This writer while in college had the pleasure to sit under a very liberal Jewish professor named Dr. Jeffrey Elliot who taught political science and who was a great interviewer that had authored over 60 books and published over 500 scholarly articles. He introduced me to the mind of President Fidel Castro and this writer must say this man could run intellectual circles around the majority of American presidents both past and present. Elliot authored a book titled, "Fidel Castro: Nothing Can Stop the Course of History" which President Castro stated, "Cuba has been offered fabulous amounts of money if we would cooperate in drug deals. Although, we are blockaded by the United States, we have never accepted a single drug deal. Therefore, I say it is infamous to attempt to link Cuba to drug deals. I say categorically that we have never received a single cent from drug trafficking. We have the cleanest record and most outstanding results of any nation in this hemisphere in the struggle against the production of, trafficking in, and use of drugs. It is truly shameful that the United States--the largest drug market in the world--is making such an accusation against Cuba. We know that the United States is growing more and more marijuana, and that is already being produced in most states in that country. IT WOULDN'T BE SURPRISING IF THE UNITED STATES WOUND UP PRODUCING SYNTHETIC COCAINE." (emphasis is mine). (Reference: Jeffrey Elliot; "Fidel Castro: Nothing Can Stop the Course of History").

President Castro spoke these prophetic words in 1985 and we witness crack cocaine (synthetic cocaine) in the mid-1980s being introduced in the black community. The drug lords in this case the U.S. Government and the Italian Mafia dumped millions of tons of crack cocaine in the poorest, oppressed and depressed communities (black and Hispanics) for test marketing, which became their drug of choice. This highly addictive and dependent drug devastated the black community and destroyed the moral and social fiber of the black community. There is no doubt in this writer's mind that genocide and a larger conspiracy were at work. The United States Government worked overtime to extinguish the revolutionary fervor that encompassed the 1960s and the 1970s, a glorious time in the history of black America where black freedom fighters took on repression and injustice. (Reference: Mumia Abu-Jamal; Live From Death Row”).

Mumia Abu-Jamal in his book titled. “Live From Death Row,” stated, “Their quest for relief is spelled C-R-A-C-K. Crack. Rock. Call it what you will, it is, in truth, another word for ‘death’ in the African-American communities. Harvested in Latin America’s Peruvian highlands, treated in jungle labs, ‘cured’ in a chemical bath of ether and kerosene, carried into the U.S.A by government –hired pilots as a way to pay the fledgling contras’ bills, cocaine comes to Chocolate City, U.S.A., and transformed into crystalline crack, wreaks havoc on poor black life. . .Just as the ‘Just Say No’ generation got down from the political stage, tons of a new potent poison were being peddled in poor sections of town, brought to these shores courtesy of the Iran-Contra funds diversion scheme, as masterminded by that great American hero Honest Ollie North (known as Operation Black Eagle—CIA). Why would the government (the same government that says ‘Just Say No’) dare bring cocaine into the States, if not to sell it, to turn it into lucre, into cold cash?” (Reference: Mumia Abu-Jamal; Live From Death Row”).

The Civil Rights Movement had two distinct voices those led by the Dr. Martin Luther Kings, Jr. Non-Violent Movement--Ralph Bunch, A. Phillip Randolph, Roy Wilkins, Whitney Young, and Bayard Rustin; and the Militant radical voices led by Minister Malcolm X, George Jackson, Huey P. Newton, Kwame Ture (Stokley Carmichael), Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown) and Elijah Muhammad. These African American personality produced movements, which challenged the political, economic and social systems of America; this fervor was replaced and harness by the introduction of crack cocaine in the black community. President George W.H Bush and his former Drug Czar William Bennett declared a “War on Drugs” and at the same time; they had sided with the Taliban in Afghanistan against the former Soviet Union where Bush and CIA were protecting their heroin interest; this to made its way to the black community for distribution.

Young black men has found more of a socialization in street gangs such as the Bloods, Crips, Gansta Disciples, etc., because there has been a breakdown in the black family, the church, the mosque, the educational institutions, etc., have lost contact with our youth. Most of all black youth do not have respect for black leaders because they feel alienated and detached from their sphere of influence. This writer has a nephew who is a member of Bloods Street Gang and is of the Hip-Hop generation, but conversing with him he expressed that most so-called black leaders are sellouts and who agenda is only to the highest bidder. The National Urban League has a huge convention every year to address the problems of black life; but its President and CEO Marc H. Morial does not have the street credentials to come in the black community and meet with street gang members like my nephew. They just do not respect these tailored made suit wearing, reptile shoes wearing, Mercedes Benz driving, etc., pimps called black leaders. This writer must say he agrees with the Bloods. (Reference: Russell Simmons; "Do You: 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success").

They stole it and we must return it. Moreover, this writer has always been partial towards black leaders that advocated the principle of self-help such as Marcus Garvey, Booker T. Washington, Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan, etc. that preached self-reliance and a do-for-self philosophy that was steeped in the White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) beliefs of pulling one’s self up by their bootstraps. African Americans can not any longer depend upon the United States Government or some hot air Father’s Day speech delivered by Senator Barack Obama to define black life. We must break the cycle of dependency and stop being willing participants in our own genocide—the Prison Industrial Complex must be exposed on all levels. What is the solution? There must-be a redistribution of the world’s wealth, not just with an elect minority, but with the masses of humanity.

By Fahim A. Knight-EL

This writer grew up in an era and attended public schools where between 8:15am and 8:30am every morning the principal of the various schools I attended would come on the public address (PA) system and recite “The Pledge of Allegiance” over the intercom and it was mandated that each student had to stand and place their right hand on their heart and turn towards the U.S. Flag which hung in every classroom and recite The Pledge of Allegiance. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.” and verbally recite this along with the principal. We also had to sing "My Country, ‘Tis’ of Thee.” This writer can not say that over the many years of going through this morning classroom ritual that it made me any more or less patriotic. I would later come to understand that this was an early form of conditioning our young impressionable minds, but even back then in elementary school I was questioning why we had to stand each morning to recite these words over and over again. My teacher would only say that we were Americans and it was important that we demonstrate patriotism and loyalty to our nation at all times.

“Patriotism: Wait one Damn Minute;” there is a lot of debate evolving around the question of Patriotism because initially Senator Barack Obama refused to wear the American flag on his coat lapel. Some have come to criticize Senator Barack Obama for initially not wearing the American flag on his lapel as though this outward symbol is the definitive determination in assessing one’s patriotism. This writer does not think one’s patriotism can be measured or properly assessed by an outwardly symbolic association. Obama as of late and from time-to-time has been wearing two flags, the United States and Israel. But wearing the Israeli flag on his lapel, is not viewed as anti-American. However, suppose Senator Barack Obama pinned a Palestinian flag on lapel; he would be deemed as being to cozy to a foreign enemy and would be rebuked for demonstrating poor judgment and he would be labeled unpatriotic.

Senator Obama has repeatedly said over and over that he is not a Muslim or follower of the religion of Islam. This writer takes him at his word and sees no reason to doubt his faith tradition. However, what bothers me is this unspoken notion of knowing that he is Christian creates this false sense of comfort—that it makes him more humane, just, trustworthy, loyal to America’s ideology and many thinks being a Christian would make him more patriotic and suitable to be the United States Commander-in-Chief, than if he was a Muslim. The New Yorker Magazine July 21, 2008 issue has a cartoon caricature of Senator Obama dressed in traditional Islamic garb and his wife Michelle Obama dressed like the former Black Panther Party members Assata Shakur, Angela Davis or Elaine Brown in the 1960s revolutionary Black Power struggles in America. These are clear examples of the arcade prejudices that permeate America’s history of bigotry and discrimination. The underline assumption is that Muslims are less patriotic than Christians, but why hasn’t the Southern Poverty Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) entered and injected some type of litigation on behalf of American Muslims. This writer knows why, they are legal arms of the Cabal and they to view Islam as the enemy.

This writer can recall under President Clinton’s Administration, Imam Warith Deen Mohammed (the son of Elijah Muhammad) on January 20, 1997, he read from the Muslim holy book, the Qur'an, at the Presidential Inauguration Day National Prayer Service. But recently Freshman Congressman (D-MN) Keith Ellison who is a Muslim and was elected to the House of Representatives from Minnesota in 2007 caught pure hell because of his religion. The discriminatory charge was led by a racist Congressman from Virginia named Virgil Goode who took issue with Congressman Ellison desiring to use the Holy Qur’an in a private swearing-in ceremony. This is why I have a problem with this patriotism talk, America is not in a moral position to judge or entertain the question of patriotism.

This writer considers himself to be a Conscientious Objector to war; in particular unjust wars such as the invasion of Panama, Grenada, Somali, Vietnam, Haiti, Falklands, Iraq, etc., People always ask me, do I support the United States troops in Iraqi? My answer, is always an emphatic no, because those who control the media and the thinking of the people desire for us to separate the U.S. Troops from those decision makers. The arm forces are the most vital arm in carrying out U.S. Foreign policy and securing its imperialistic positions around the world. This writer, in good conscious can not separate the tool from the brain-trust; although the tool (rank and file soldier) has no idea that they are fostering the political, economic and social objectives of individuals such as the Committee of 300 that do not share in their sentiments of patriotism.

Patriotism is defined as “a proud supporter or defender of his or her country and its way of life.” Patriotism is imbued in the poor and the ignorant while the rich and super Elitist is the beneficiaries of war that is fought by the proletariat in order that Elitist may continue reap the spoils of war from every corner of the earth. The DeBeers, Henry Kissinger, Rothschilds, and Rockefellers they do not believe in American patriotism or any other nation’s patriotic viewpoint. Their definition of patriotism do not allow room for critical evaluation and assessment of America’s social order and there has always been an internal movements to stifle debate; because true debate would prove to be counter productive to their goals and objectives. American patriotism is structured upon lies, half-truths and deceptions in order to inculcate the deepest sense of loyalty, fidelity, devotion, etc., to their schemes and condition the masses to never question their motives, which are based on the accumulation of wealth and power by any means necessary.

The Elitist of the United States has sold America to foreign interest—Asian Nations such as China and Japan virtually owns our country because our nation is for sell. Where is the patriotism in preserving the United States future for future generations? What is so patriotic about declaring war on the innocent and tiny nation of Iraq? In order to flex our military might while we steal Oil from the defensively people of Iraq and claim we are making the world more safer for democracy. How is murdering innocent people in Iraq considered to be patriotic? The war activist Cindy Sheehan is more of a patriot than most Americans because she openly opposed Bush and his unjust war; she stood as a voice of dissention. The American definition of patriotism is both hypocritical and double standard. President George Bush has repeatedly lied to the American public and he has U.S. Flags and other governmental symbols all around him and in my opinion, he is displaying patriotism without morality which is just like symbol without substance. President Bush has not lived up to the solemn Oath that he swore to on the Holy Bible, to up hold in 2000 and 2004.

The entire United States Congress and the President should be charged with treason and sedition for violating various aspects of the United States Constitution; for example, taxation without representation is tyranny; these governmental rogues and political gangsters don’t give damn about welfare of its citizens. They do not represent the interest of the American people, but champion the interest of a small and powerful Elitist Circle. I guess it is patriotic for the United States Government in 1913 to have surrendered our monetary system over to private bankers (Central Banks) in essence; the Federal Reserve Act is unconstitutional along with Internal Revenue Service. How many of these good American patriots have the audacity and political courage to propose a bill in Congress to repeal and rescind this demandable act? Those that control the printing of our currency and determine the national and international interest rates and the valuation or devaluation of our monetary system have a stranglehold on all of humanity including over those who are top level elected officials.

Patrick Henry said "give me liberty or give me death" surely taxation without representation is tyranny. Their patriotism is to the twelve Central Banks—that rules the entire planet: 1. Rothschild Bank of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, 2. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (Rockefeller) Chase National bank of New York (Rockefeller). 3. First National Bank of New York. 5.

It was President Bush just a couple of years ago who was looking to sell the rights to the United States Ports over to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). How does this motive line-up with patriotism? After 9/11 the so-called terrorist were supposed to have been Middle Eastern Arabs; yet Bush was looking to turn over one of America’s most vital and strategic geographical regions of costal sovereignty to the Arabs, although some thought this move could have posed a serious security breech and compromise of America’s national security. This move sounded like a political contradiction—after-all he and the media had characterized the Arabs and Islam as being synonymous with terrorism.

President Bush since 9/11 had initiated all types of repressive legislation and actions under the banner of Homeland Security. He beefed up United States Boarder Patrol operations and United States Customs. The eastern seaboard is one of the regions of the country where imports and exports are received and moved across international waters. President Bush in desiring to sell U.S. Ports to this Oil wealthy Islamic State because he is bosom buddies with these reactionary monarch Arab governments and more importantly he felt comfortable with this proposition because he knew the real culprits behind the 9/11 hoax and understood best that they were not Arabs. This writer learned in middle school social studies classes that dissent was constitutional, but this writer can recall right after September 11, 2001 all debate was stifled in which academicians, activists, intellectuals, etc., were not allowed to critique or criticize the United States Government and the events evolving around 9/11.

This writer understood that the nation was mourning and trying to come to grips with the so-called 9/11 tragedy, which represented a lost of life and property, but the media had worked the ignorant masses into a frenzy and they became the first line of defense in this recent era of patriotism. The United States Flags were selling like hot cakes; I am quite sure the U.S. Flag makers and manufactures—probably were not American companies (many of the flags did not have the trademark made in the USA), but somebody made huge sums of money off the United States citizens emotionalism, which was disguise in patriotism.

Scholars were afraid to assess and evaluate lest they be called unpatriotic; thus, there were CNN, CBS, FOX News, ABC, NBC, BBC, etc., that were interviewing well known talking heads who perhaps had a differ of opinion but could not offer a dissenting opinion after 9/11 because of fear of being labeled unpatriotic. President Bush and the United States Government for close to two years functioned with minimum criticism and opposition which allowed him to circumvent the United States Constitution, reconstruct foreign and domestic policy—imposed many reactionary Executive Orders—Bush in fact rearranged the entire world while the American people were wrapped up in the sentimental values—passionately called patriotism. This writer equates patriotism with a sedative drug, it put the American people to sleep and they wouldn’t feel the pain after awakening to find out that their nation had been hijacked and truly American democracy had become something of the past. If the Truth be told Paul Warburg and the boys in the early 1900s started this erosion of democracy over one hundred (100) years ago.

President Bush literally transformed the United States into a TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT (this concept is far removed from patriotism—Bush should have been crowned with a new title DICTATOR BUSH) and post 9/11 the United States Constitution became a second tier document which was replaced by the United States Patriot Act (interpret to mean you have no rights). This is what happens when an inordinate amount of propaganda is allowed to make inroads and impact a society without critical opposition and Bush did not allow himself to have an alter-ego and he hid behind patriotism. The U.S. Congress was also duped, they rubber stamped during this time of so-called crisis the majority of Bush’s foreign and domestic policy initiatives. Many of them believed after 9/11 that the United States was in crisis and they had to show forth their patriotism by agreeing and passing legislation in support of the Bush Administration.

The United States Government since 9/11 has equipped itself with some powerful arsenal—the United States Justice Department just have to label you an Enemy Combatant and from that moment you have no legal rights; moreover Bush’s repressive acts and legislation were more aimed at the American people more so than the so-called foreign terrorist and as we were applauding the rounding up of so-called Arab radical militants; it never occurred to us that the intended victims would eventually be the American people. You all remember Timothy McVeigh, the good American boy that spearheaded the bombing of the Okalahoma City Federal building in 1995 killing over one hundred eighty people and destroying property; he had been trained in the U.S. Arm Forces. McVeigh declared himself a soldier and a patriot. How does McVeigh’s theory of patriotism equate with the U.S. Government slant of patriotism?

McVeigh had reasoned that what was lacking in America was “patriotism” and he blamed the U.S. Government for eroding the rights giving to all Americans in the “Bill of Rights” and he believed the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted from the basis of original intent. This writer can recall the media initially blaming the Nation of Islam which is headed by Minister Louis Farrakhan as possibly having involvement in the Okalahoma City Federal building bombing. Although the Black Muslims had no relationships with so-called foreign Islamic extremist or homegrown extremist; it did not matter because in the government’s mind, the Nation of Islam’s controversial teachings since 1930 made them a prime suspect, as a possible dissident group potentially capable of either directly or in directly desiring to see America brought to her knees. However, the Black Muslim had no history of using violence against the United States Government.

The media then began to focus on so-called allege Middle Eastern Arabs as their suspects because surely the Arab Muslims had an ax to grind; after-all the U.S. Government had armed and financed the Zionist State Israel to the detriment of the Palestinians in particular and the entire Islamic world in general. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm (ATF), U.S. Marshal’s Service, etc., they were shocked to find out that their suspects were white and American. They could not imagine that this level of anti-American dissention existed internally in our nation and worst yet McVeigh had no relations with any of America’s foreign enemies. The Okalahoma City Federal building bombing sought of speaking caught America with her pants down and without the proper legal and military structure to deal with these high levels of anti-American sentiments.

The staging of 9/11 was strategically and tactfully crafted by some sophisticated minds that desired to ensure that the U.S. Government would have all the legal and military tools at her disposals to deal with all foreign and domestic enemies and there would not be any legal or political obstacles in their way in defining their enemies and bring them to American style justice. Perhaps McVeigh was a U.S. Government agent and all the said events were orchestrated by Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) these type tricks are not above or beneath them. There is book authored by Ralph W. McGhee titled, “Deadly Deceits: My Twenty-Five Years in the CIA.” and McGhee wrote about the dirty tricks of the CIA. All of this could have brought us to 9/11 and the U.S. Patriot Act and the question of Civil Liberties, which we gave the U.S. Government a blank check to do what ever she pleases in the guise of National Security.

Many do not understand that these are dangerous times that we are living and this writer does not mean because the Western Governments have spooked us into believing that Arabs and Islam are our enemies. But I am here to tell you that our own government is our enemy and the one you should fear. This writer knows that some of this may come across as being unpatriotic WHAT EVER THAT MEANS, but someone must be willing to SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER. Bush has galvanized various agencies from law enforcement, academicians, legal professionals, etc., in order to study the concept of homegrown terrorism—from the social science perspective, as well as, to better understanding U.S. Jurisprudence and law relative to United States citizens committing acts of terrorism against the United States Government.

The homegrown so-called terrorist concern is centered on the U.S. Government failure to admit that Islam has developed and evolved as a major ideological religious school of thought in Christian America and has taking root throughout the United States, which is being disseminated pursuant to an enculturation process taking place amongst native born African American Muslims and their relationship with Middle Eastern Muslims. The religious bond they share transcends race and class (Islam as a religion seems to be the glue that holds these two distinct cultures together). Black Americans represent one of the largest non-Middle Eastern Islamic blocs in the United States and many of them each year are making Hajj to Mecca, Saudi Arabia and starting to visit other Islamic nations and societies. In some instance, there has been a forged alliance between Middle Eastern Muslims and African American Muslims. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency after 9/11 started all types of covert and overt surveillance aimed at monitoring Islam and Masjids across America, in particular in cities like Newark, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Detroit, Michigan, New York City, San Francisco, California, Washington, D.C., etc., where there were large Middle Eastern and African American Muslims attending the same Masjids.

The United States Government has seen many Black Muslim sympathizers identifying with so-called Militant Radical Islam and who have become willing recruits for Militant Islam and joining their declaration of Jihad against the West. This writer in the past has heard Imam Jamil Abdullah EL-Amin (formerly H. Rap Brown of the Black Panther Party and former Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) deliver Jumuah services (Friday’s Congregation Prayer) in Atlanta in which he had a serious command of the Arabic language and their was a synthesizing of a bridging of cultures taking place under the banner of Islam between foreign Muslims and African American Muslims.

Imam Jamil AL-Amin (H. Rap Brown) was a target of the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover’s Cointelpro (U.S. Government Counter Intelligence Program) of the 1960s and 1970s because of his revolutionary activism during the turbulent Civil Rights era in the United States. He was charged and convicted of murdering a Cobb County Police officer in 2002 and is presently serving a life sentence at the Supermax Penitentiary in Colorado. Many believe that the FBI Cointelpro was ongoing and Imam AL-Amin was a victim of U.S. Government complicity. There are other high profile Imams like Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an African American Muslim who is well respected both in America and the Islamic world.

Look at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and other Federal Bureau of Prisons and military holding sites where innocent Muslims who are prisoners of war, but are being denied legal counsel and is not protected by our laws, as they are written in the United States Constitution or being allowed to come under international law as it was written in the Geneva Convention. Many of them have not even been formerly charged; their situation is a travesty of justice. Some of these Muslim/Arab prisoners are being illegally tried in U.S. Military Courts and U.S. Federal Courts without the benefit of international jurisprudence relevant to their legal status—PRISONERS OF WAR. It is extremely difficult for me to accept Bush’s view of patriotism in lieu of the injustices. Why hasn’t House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers done more to demand justice for the Muslim prisoners of war that are being housed in the belly of the beast?

By Fahim A. Knight-EL

The writer perhaps like most Americans grew-up a bit naive about how this system functioned and believed that there was no other form of government or political system equated to the United States system of Democracy. We learned in our middle school civics course how the United States Democracy functioned, as far as the three branches of government—Executive, Legislative and Judicial branch, which we were taught gave a balance to power and a separation of powers. Thus, in theory the Executive branch (commander-in-chief), Legislative (Congress) and judicial (US Courts) all worked in concert to ensure the tenets of democracy are being fulfilled within our nation. The passing of the U.S. Patriot Act in 2001 turned the clock back relative to the balance of governmental powers—all the power has been unilateral transferred to the Executive branch.

We bought into believing in our electoral process, where as we elect four hundred and thirty-five (435) members to the House of Representatives and one hundred members to the United States Senate which makes up the US Congress. These elected officials are suppose to be the voices of the people in government and is mandated by law and Oath of Office to exercise the will of the people. We hail the right to vote as the highest and the most sacred order of a participatory government. Our democracy gives the appearance that the citizen of the United States are free and our government is structured upon certain alienable rights amongst them is “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” according to legal and passionate language written in the U.S. Constitution.

Gary Allen and Larry Abraham in their book titled, "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" questions how free we are by listing what they called the 'The Fourteen Signposts to Slavery," which reads like this 1). Restriction on taking money out of the country and on the establishment or retention of a foreign bank account by an American citizen. 2). Abolition of private ownership of hand guns. 3). Detention of individuals without judicial process. 4). Requirements that private financial transactions be keyed to social security numbers or other government identification so that government records of these transactions can be kept and fed into a computer. 5). Use of compulsory education laws to forbid attendance at presently private schools. 6). Compulsory non-military service. 7). An official declaration that anti-Communist organizations are subversive and subsequent legal action taken to suppress them. 9). Laws limiting the number of people allowed to meet in a private home. 10). Any significant change in passport regulations to make passport more difficult to obtain or use. 11). Wage and price controls, especially in a non-wartime situation. 12). Any kind of compulsory registration with the government of where individuals work. 13). Any attempt to restrict freedom of movement within the United States. 14). Any attempt to make a new major law by executive decree (that is, actually put into effect, not merely authorized as by existing executive orders.) This book “None Dare Call it Conspiracy” was written over thirty-two (32) years ago and the words are prophetic, as far as laying out the AGENDA which is a living document, it foretold how the American people would eventually be striped of all civil liberties. 9/11 put us on that track. (Reference: Gary Allen and Larry Abraham: “None Dare Call it Conspiracy”)

This writer was viewing the news coming out Zimbabwe, Africa with its controversial President Robert Mugabe and that South East African nation's recent 2008 elections which the majority of the Western Governments called the elections a hoax and a sham. President Mugabe is being criticized and condemned for using intimidation, violence as a tactic and killing the opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai's supporters (Tsvangirai withdrew from the election which prompt more suspicion) to alter the so-called democratic process to ensure that he would remain in office for life. This writer wonders is Harry Oppenheimer after more natural resources in Zimbabwe and is he behind all the negative reporting the last ten years coming out of Zimbabwe.

This writer does not trust media reports because all media is controlled by one source. This writer would like to posed a rhetorical question, what is the worst form of social, political, and economic tyranny knowing and seeing that it exist or not seeing but is incurring the same affect? As reactionary as Mugabe's policies and tactics may-be; he is a peon and a little petty criminal in comparison to the motives of the criminals that set the AGENDA. This writer does believe that the imperialistic crimes committed historically by Cecil Rhodes and British and more recently by Ian Smith is somewhat responsible for the present day chaos that exist in Zimbabwe and throughout the whole of Africa.

Those that set AGENDA has given us the perception that democracy has led us to two political presidential candidates—Senator John McCain (R-AZ), the presumptive Republican nominee and Senator (D-ILL), the presumptive Democratic nominee, which in November the United States citizens will so-called elect a new Commander-in-Chief at least that is how it will appear on the surface. Those that set the AGENDA will win whether they seat the old War Monger Senator McCain or the youthful Harvard trained "silver tongue" lawyer in Senator Barack Obama. These two presidential hopefuls have no agenda other than an agreed consent to carry out the AGENDA of those who have the power, money and the infrastructure to shape and alter human history.

The "AGENDA' was set by Nathan Rothschild over 200 years ago who said “let me control a nations money I care not who writes its laws.” Professor Carroll Quigley who authored the monumental work titled, "Tragedy and Hope" stated, "At the end of the war of 1914, it became clear that the organization of this system {The Round Table} had to be greatly extended. Once again the task was entrusted to Lionel Curtis who established in England and each dominion, a front organization, called the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had as its nucleus in each area the existing submerged Round Table Group. In New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J.P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table Group. The American organizers were dominated by the large number of Morgan 'experts,'. . .who had gone to the Paris Peace Conference and there became close friends with the similar group of English 'experts' which had been recruited by the Milner group. In fact, the original plans for the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations {CFR} were drawn up in Paris. . ." (Reference Carroll Quigley: "Tragedy and Hope”).

Most African Americans, in particular and all Americans in general, have no idea that these two candidates have been groomed to further the AGENDA, which is to the detriment of the national and international populace. Black Americans have this excitement about Senator Obama perhaps becoming the first African American president in the history of the United States; this writer does not share in their exuberance and excitement because little do they know that Senator Obama does not share in their sentiments of nationalism and so-called history making reality. His loyalty as all other United States presidents has very little to do with U.S. patriotism or racial-ethnic nationalism; they pledge allegiance to the AGENDA.

Senator Clinton after being defeated and Senator Obama after winning the nomination, the very next day, they both attended or perhaps were summoned to an American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) forum, which Senator Clinton assured the Zionist Jews that Senator Obama would be a committed friend to Israel. But what is it about these people who are just four (4) million in population within the United States and yet wield so much power and influence that every potential candidate for president must have their approval and consent. They (AIPAC) are like E.F. Hutton when they speak politicians must listen and do. Senator Obama did not address his largest and most loyal political support constituent base—the African American because he has no respect for a powerless and inconsequential group who do not have the political connections or the financial influence to truly determine his political destiny. This should have been an insult to African Americans, but their nine hundred billion dollar Gross National Product (GNP) and African Americans having over six thousand (6,000) elected and appointed political figures still ranks as inconsequential. Thus, in comparison to the Jewish lobbies they still remain powerless in the scheme of determining their own future and is voiceless when it comes to factoring-in which direction the world is headed. (Reference: Henry Ford: “The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem).

Yet, blacks represent one of the largest democratic party blocs in America and it was this political machine that initially gave Senator Obama the numbers over the better financed and well organized campaign of Senator Hillary Clinton. Lets not be mistaken here, those that set the AGENDA influence the electorate and in reality, they select the United States president and our vote don’t mean SHIT and as I have previously stated in a number of my writings before the United States Constitution is a worthless piece of paper. Welcome to American style Fascism.

The 2000 presidential election was proof positive that President George Bush stole an election or may be he was given an election by the AGENDA setters. Your vote did not factor-in, the American people elected former Vice President Al Gore as their president but the AGENDA setters had already cut a deal with former President George Herbert Walker Bush, the CIA spy and loyal servant, which to elevate his son to the position as the American leader that would alter world history. President Bush upon taking office had some dismal approval ratings according to the political pollsters. However, September 11, 2001 (staged event) would forever change his image, as well as the world and nation. His approval ratings right after the attack on the World Trade Center soared and the world stood side-by-side with America during this allege terrorist attack. (Reference: Richard A. Clarke “Against All Enemies: Inside America’s War on Terror”).

This incident devastated the morale of our nation; it left us looking for answers in one of America's darkest hours. Bush as ignorant as he was, and without the aid of his father could not have managed a crisis like 9/11, but his father, former President George H.W. Bush had surrounded his son with some of the best military minds and political advisor who were loyal constituents during his over fifty year rein in politics; they were asked to guide him through troubling waters at times like this.

The AGENDA setters led by one of their agents, Larry Silverstein who help create the 9-11 hoax and the bombing of the World Trade Center. He has reaped billions of dollars from the hoax and the Federal Bureau of Investigation nor has the New York Insurance Commission investigated Mr. Silverstein for fraud. I wonder why? The AGENDA setters knew that they could use the poor international relations between the United States and Iraq in order to dupe the American people, which to create a short and long term atmosphere of hate for Muslims and Arabs by convincing Americans via mass medium electronic and print into believing that Iraq and Al Qaeda had teamed up to attack America. This of course, was the furthest thing from the truth; it was mere propaganda and it created enough confusion and garnished enough public emotions to lead Bush into Baghdad with one objective stealing Oil. (Reference: David Icke: “The Biggest Secret”).

The public in March 2003 was mislead to believe that United States was declaring war on terror and U.S. Military in order to attain the real motive— stealing Oil, this heist would require them to become judge, jury, and executioner in Iraq. They had enough reactionary language in the U.S. Patriot Act (to justify all actions), the Geneva Convention was compromised, Bush would later impose the Military Commission Act and for all practical purposes the United Nations is a subsidiary of the United States Government with little decision making authority to enact international legislation and policies contrary to the interest of the United States. (Reference: David Horowitz, The Rockefellers and American Dynasty).

They later would admit that Iraq had no Weapons of Mass Destruction and justified the invasion by stating they received faulty intelligence from the former Central Intelligence Agency director George Tenet and from other intelligence apparatus. Also 9/11 changed how Islam would be viewed by the West because the face of Islam became associated with Osama Bin Laden, the so-called allege mastermind of 9/11. Bush squandered the opportunity to set a moral example of what a good world leader could be instead he became a vicious War-Monger attacking the innocent and defensively nation of Iraq. The entire world had sympathized with the United States during their time of crisis after 9/11 and was looking for the US to be a moral example to the rest world. (Reference: George Tenet: “At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA”).

Bush will leave office in November 2008, as a disgrace and as one of the worst United States presidents of all time. He could have been considered one of the most popular presidents of all time but his poor decision making after 9/11 cost him this place in history. The AGENDA is often non-negotiable and this history was pre-ordained perhaps even prior to Bush being considered for servitude. McCain and Obama will take off from where Bush leaves off, and continue the AGENDA of fostering in a one World Government. The Middle East is a vital component to this objective because it represents America's primary energy source. The Persian Gulf is of the most vital and strategic importance to United States interest.

Former President Richard Nixon wrote in his book titled, "Seize The Moment, America's Challenge In a One-Superpower World," stated, "Had we not intervened, an international outlaw would today control more than fifty percent of the world's oil. While the United States could survive, if necessary without Persian Gulf oil, Western Europe and Japan could not. What happens to the economics of the industrial democracies directly affects the health of our economy. We therefore, could not have afforded to allow Iraq to have access to Gulf oil and blackmail the world through its choke hold on our oil lifeline." (Reference: Richard Nixon: "Seize The Moment, America's Challenge In a One-Superpower World").

Saudi Arabia is a disgrace to the Islamic world and they are used by the West as puppets to pacify Islam. This is why right after 9/11 although President Bush declared all of America's airspace as a no fly zone, but high ranking and top level officials of the Saudi Royal Kingdom were allowed to board a plane in Washington, DC and fly back Riyadh. Islam has allowed an enemy to enter in-between brothers who is steadily acerbating the differences between Shia Islam and Sunni Islam flaming sectarian differences, creating violent tension between Muslims while they continue to steal Oil and enriched themselves at the expense of the Muslims of Iraq.

The X factor is violence and it can be unpredictable and is responsible for over 4,000 US servicemen and women losing their lives in Iraq, but these casualties do not compare to the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis murdered by United States Arm Forces. The Muslim suicide bombers may seem to be insane to us in the West, but when people backs are pushed up against the wall; how they react can be unconventional—to some they are terrorist and to others they are legitimate freedom fighters. The Iraq war must come to an end; they impose the AGENDA to steal Oil and have devastated this impoverish nation with U.S. Military imperialism and unjust occupation.

This writer, as he writes, this article just heard on CNN news that President Bush and the Israelis are planning a military air attack against Iran before Bush leaves office. No, doubt Iran is on the AGENDA and either McCain or Obama will be given orders to invade this Shia Islamic Nation; although Iran poses no threat to the United States or to its neighbors just as Iraq posed no threat to anyone in 2003, but that doesn't matter once you are on the AGENDA. The first priority for the AGENDA Setters will be to capture the Iranian Oil fields for direct exploitation and to militarily destroy any potential Nuclear sites in this U.S. and Israel adversarial nation. This type of backwards diplomacy and military action will only further infuriate Muslims and create a broaden rift between Islam and the West.

Senator Obama has expressed interest in meeting with America's so-called enemies (these nations Bush has deemed the Axis of Evil) which to explore all options of peaceful diplomacy. This sounds good and reasonable, but whether Iran is allowed to continue in peace or is forced to engage in war, will not be the decision of Presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama or for that matter Senator McCain. The AGENDA setters see the potential of furthering enriching the Seven Oil Sisters, as well as so-called alleviating any potential threat to Israel in the Middle East. Then war with Iran will be inevitable.

These unseen Barons, the Order of Illuminati, House of Rothschild, Skull and Bones, Anglo American Establishment, Trilateral Commission, Bilderburger, Council on Foreign Relations, Club of Rome, etc., are some of your AGENDA Setters and they have sovereignty over all nations laws. The Keeping it Real Think Tank are equally divided on Senator Obama and since he has embraced the Zionist Jewish agenda and finds the black agenda as being politically incorrect to embrace and address; then something is wrong with this picture and equation, but who dares to questions these political acts of deception. (Reference: Dr. John Coleman: “Conspirators Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of the 300”).

If elected president Senator Obama would perhaps be as ruthless and self-serving as President George W. Bush because he will be given an AGENDA and the political course of the United States and world rest completely outside the control of the Oval Office and U.S. Congress. The political course of our government has already been set on automatic pilot and although there will be some figure head (McCain or Obama) sitting in the captain's chair he will have no real bearing on the direction of the nation and world. Senator Obama or Senator McCain do not have the power to determine the so-called Oil crisis they are just front men and window dressing politicians often staging the show for the ignorant masses; because those that control the natural resources of the world do not answer to the U.S. Commander-in-Chief or to any other world leader (these low level operatives answers to them). (Reference: William Cooper: “Behold A Pale Horse.”)

They are the Central Bankers whom King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia works for and take orders; they determine how the Oil market fluctuate from Wall Street to Hong Kong. Thus, they throw out sound bites to the public such as “Saudi Arabia has agreed to increase drilling,” as though that is the solution to alleviating the world's so-called Oil crisis. They have their tentacles wrapped around every economic market and around all of humanity. The one hundred forty three dollars ($143,00) per barrel Oil has very little to do with Saudi Arabia or OPEC ability to relieve the Oil tension but the Rothschilds and the hidden aristocracy that set the AGENDA operates from Budapest, London, Paris, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, New York, Moscow, Berlin, Hong Kong, etc. They are the real culprits behind this artificial Oil crisis. (Reference: Andy Stern: “Oil: From Rockefellers to Iraq and Beyond’).
