"One of you guys did it [meaning the JFK assassination in 1963]. I know it, one of you guys did it."

- Robert Kennedy to an official at the CIA
as reported by Pulitzer Prize-winning
Journalist Haynes Johnson, 1964

"I know the CIA did it [again, meaning murdering JFK in 1963], but there's nothing I can do about it - [at least] not now."

 - Robert Kennedy to
Richard Goodwin, advisor and speechwriter
to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, 1966

"The President [JFK] was murdered because he whimped out regarding Cuba [meaning the Bay of Pigs], and he refused to recognize the danger of Communist aggression in South East Asia [Vietnam]."

Anonymous official
at the CIA, 1969

"There's not much question anymore that both the FBI and the CIA are somewhere behind this cover-up [meaning the CIA's involvement in the JFK assassination].  I hate to think what it is they are covering up - or who they are covering up for."

- Don Edwards.
Former FBI Official and a
Democratic Congressman, CA, 1976


Forty-five years ago President John F. Kennedy (JFK) was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. He was targeted to be killed by "a government within a government" that was concerned that he didn't "have the balls" to be president; that he was unprepared to use America's immense military strength to carry out the wishes of America's "elite of power." Now Obama is in danger of running afoul of this same "elite of power" if he is not very, very careful.


And just how deadly and venomous this "elite of power" is, AND HOW CLOSELY IT IS ALLIED TO THE CHURCH, is easy enough to see - and if you don't see, it's because you don't want to see, fulfilling the words of Christ when He said,

"Having eyes, ye see not; and having ears, ye hear not." (Mark 8:18)

For example, when these forces conspired against JFK on November 22, 1963 to slaughter him in front of his wife and a horrified nation because he had refused to do their bidding in Cuba at the Bay of Pigs, was planning to pull U.S. troops out of Vietnam, was considering the possibility of ending Big Oil's 27.5 percent oil depletion allowance, and - worst of all - was threatening to "tear up the CIA (the elite's 'enforcer') and scatter it to the wind," many of the "leading lights" of this malevolent clique brazenly assembled together the night before the assassination in the home of Dallas oil magnate Clint Murchison to put an end to him.

Ostensibly, it was an event to honor J. Edgar Hoover, the mean-spirited, maniacal, "cross-dressing" head of the FBI, who was a close friend of Murchison; and H.L. Hunt, another Texas oil baron and the "MONEY-MAN" behind what was then the Christian Right's leading "TEMPLE" to the "god of wealth" and the "American Free Enterprise System" in the country, Rev. W.A. Criswell's First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas. IT'S HERE - IT'S PRECISELY HERE - IN THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HUNT AND CRISWELL THAT THE LINK BETWEEN THE AMERICAN ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL ELITES (ON THE ONE HAND) AND THE AMERICAN CHURCH (ON THE OTHER HAND) BECOMES PLAIN.

The guest list included most of the "Who's Who" of the oil elite. In addition, John McCloy, chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank; Richard Nixon, the former vice president and a "card-carrying member" of the "McCarthy Wing" of the Republican Party; George Brown of Brown and Root - a Texas construction company with a Nazi past that is linked inextricably to both Bush senior and Bush junior; R.L. Thornton, president of the Mercantile Bank (a bank with powerful ties to the Texas oil industry); and Dallas mayor Earle Cabell, brother of General Charles Cabell, former Deputy Director of the CIA, who had a BURNING hatred for President Kennedy who had fired him for the Bay of Pigs fiasco. [For a detailed discussion of the Bush family's ties to Brown and Root and the Nazi connections of both the company and the Bush family, please see Part II of our article, "A Woman Riding a Beast Going Forth Conquering and to Conquer" and the article by Jack Calhoun "The Family that Preys Together" in Covert Action Quarterly (http://mediafilter.org/CAQ/CAQ_Contents.html).]

Now I suppose that if one is prepared to believe that the moon is made of blue cheese and tooth fairies exist, it's possible to believe that it was a mere coincidence that all these men of wealth (and rabid "Kennedy-haters") - each from different parts of the country - were in Dallas the night before JFK was assassinated. But there is something more that lifts the convergence of all these men in "Big D" the night before Kennedy's assassination above coincidence: toward the end of the party, LBJ - Kennedy's vice president and a Kennedy-hater like all the rest of them - made an appearance, and he wasn't as "out of place" at this party as one might first imagine. LBJ was as beholden to Texas Oil (in LBJ's case, to Clint Murchison) as was W.A. Criswell (in Criswell's case, to H.L. Hunt), and though both men (i.e., Criswell and Johnson) inhabited "different planets" insofar as their political and religious lives were concerned, the souls of both men had been "bought and paid for" by Big Oil. William F. Pepper, author of An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King (a book that Ramsey Clark, United States Attorney General in the Johnson Administration, calls one of the best books he has ever read on the subject of King's assassination), says that Madeline Brown, LBJ's beautiful mistress with whom LBJ had a son, was at the party that night too. Pepper says that Brown told him that near the end of the party, all the "big shots" disappeared behind the closed doors of Murchison's study. After a while, the meeting broke up, and Johnson - anxious and red-faced - emerged from the meeting and went up to Brown, embraced her and whispered in her ear something she would never forget:

"AFTER TOMORROW THOSE G-DDAMN KENNEDYS WILL NEVER EMBARRASS ME AGAIN - THAT'S NO THREAT, THAT'S A PROMISE." [Please the following video of Madeline Brown recounting this incident at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79lOKs0Kr_Y ; please also see our article, "Now Is the Time to Do Something; It May Be Too Late Tomorrow."]


Now Obama is on a collision course with this same "elite of power," and he is in grave danger of crashing into it just like JFK did in 1963 - with the same results. He is, no doubt, cognizant of the peril he is in, and he has been taking steps to avoid the same fate that befell Kennedy by surrounding himself with "centrists" he believes have the "juice" to protect him, including his own vice-president elect, Senator Joe Biden; but it's doubtful that they can.  Those who are targeting Obama have already taken note of his relationships with people they loathe (e.g. Bill Ayers, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rashid Khalidi, Jamal Said, etc.), and there is very little that Obama can do to mitigate their alarm over his so-called "past" relationships with these people. Obama can say that he no longer has anything to do with them, and he can say it on into eternity, but his denials ring hollow to those who are probably even now scheduling him for murder.

That there actually exists within the United States a covert and extremely malevolent "government within a government" answerable not to the American public, but to the nation's "richy-riches" is no longer much of a secret. It's a recognized fact not only among the "plebes," but also among America's intellectual classes and in its governing circles. The late Professor C. Wright Mills of Columbia University writes:

"... in this particular epoch a conjunction of historical circumstances has led to the rise [in the United States] of an elite of power ... The men of the circles composing this elite, severally and collectively, now make such key decisions as are made; and that, given the enlargement and the centralization of the means of power now available, the decisions that they make and fail to make carry more consequences for more people than has ever been the case in the world history of mankind." [Please see our article, "The Elite, Money and the End of Days;" please also see our article, "Greed, Avarice and the Coming Dictatorship."]

Commenting on this noxious and loathsome entity, House Majority Leader Hale Boggs - in a speech he gave before Congress in early April of 1971 - said:

"Over the postwar years, we have granted to the elite and secret police ['secret police' - meaning the CIA and the FBI] within our system vast new powers over the lives and liberties of the people.   At the request of the 'trusted' and 'respected' heads of those forces, and their appeal to the necessities of national security, we have exempted those grants of power from due accounting and strict surveillance." [All this more than thirty years before the enactment of the Patriot Act and its ancillary laws and regulations.]

NOTE: Boggs followed up on this speech later in the month, and delivered another blistering attack on the House floor against the CIA and the FBI; he compared the agencies to Hitler's Gestapo. Boggs - who was scheduled to become the new Speaker of the House - was planning on re-opening the investigation into the JFK assassination. Shortly after making this announcement, Boggs mysteriously vanished while on a flight over Alaska. Despite a massive search, no trace of the airplane or of Boggs was ever found.

Chalk it up to another CIA "hit." The lesson to be learned here is that it's extremely dangerous for anyone to speak out against the CIA. [Please see our article, "The Death of Gary Webb;" please also see our article, "Buy Oil for Your Lamps while There Is Still Time" for a list of other "hits" - both foreign and domestic - in which the CIA has been involved.]


Michael Parenti calls the CIA a "conspiracy against America's legitimate government;" Parenti writes:

"In most of its operations, the CIA is by definition a conspiracy, using covert actions and secret plans, many of which are of the most unsavory kind.  What are covert operations if not conspiracies?  At the same time, the CIA is an institution, a structural part of the national security state.  In sum, the agency is an institutionalized conspiracy."

NOTE: It should be noted in this connection that the CIA is governed by an "institutional memory" that was implanted in it by the elites at its very origins in 1947. The "institutional memory" of the CIA reflects the concepts of America's elite of power; it transcends individual behavior, and is impervious to change from "outsiders" and even from "insiders" who attempt to reform the agency - as both Stansfield Turner and Ambassador William Colby found out to their horror (to say nothing of JFK and RFK). [Please see our article, "Ashcroft: Making a List of Dissenters" for the story of the strange death of Ambassador Colby."]


The late Senator William Proxmire pegged the number of employees of the "federal" intelligence community at 148,000, though Proxmire's number is itself a conservative one. And why is that? - because, as Jim Hougan writes in Spooks,

"The 'intelligence community' is officially defined as including only those organizations that are members of the U.S. Intelligence Board (USIB); a dozen 'other' agencies, charged with both foreign and domestic intelligence chores, are not encompassed by the term....  The number of intelligence workers employed by the federal government is not 148,000, but some undetermined multiple of that number."

This is an incredible number - and I mean here merely the number of 148,000. That's more employees than California, the nation's largest state, employs in its entire state bureaucracy.


This bureaucracy, however, is not up to any good; it does not dispense help to the poor, build bridges and roads, operate great centers of learning, etc. (as does California's massive state bureaucracy); it is instead a bureaucracy that deals solely in intrigue, treachery and "double-dealing" - and it does so on a truly monstrous scale. Indeed, in an article for Salon Magazine entitled "Rome on the Potomac," David Talbot of the New York Times compares the treachery and "double-dealing" that is today a part of life in the nation's capital to the same kind of treachery and "double-dealing" that characterized life in the Rome of Christ's time; he writes:

"The ancient imperial capital [of Rome] ... was full of dark intrigue, treachery and gruesomely memorable characters.  But it had nothing on Washington, our Rome on the Potomac ..."  

According to Talbot, like the Rome of Christ's time, the Rome of today is as likely to "suffer" the assassination of its presidents as the Rome of yesterday was likely to "suffer" the assassination of its Caesars; and it's America's intelligence agencies that play the part of Rome's Praetorian Guard in this gruesome spectacle. Talbot says that Kennedy - who was a student of the history of ancient Rome - was well aware of this fact, and it gnawed at Kennedy's nerves while he was president, as well it should have (see "IMPORTANT NOTE" above). Talbot writes:

"JFK ... clearly sensed the mutinous mood in right-wing corners of Washington.  In conversations with friends, Kennedy raised the specter of an assassination or coup with disturbing frequency during his brief presidency."

Talbot continues:

"Top generals, spymasters, far-right congressmen, defense industry lobbyists and anti-communist zealots all began muttering about the young man in the Oval Office, who, in their minds, was weak and inexperienced ..."

It was precisely out of this milieu of Right-Wing zealots - all of them centered around the CIA - that those who planned JFK's assassination emanated (again, see "IMPORTANT NOTE" above).

Now they are gathering themselves around Obama just as they did Kennedy so many years ago.


It is, of course, quite difficult, even after all the startling revelations concerning the scandalous activities of America's furtive "government within a government" - e.g., Watergate, the Gulf or Tonkin Incident, the Pentagon Papers, the Contra fiasco, Irangate, the MIA controversy, etc. (all deliberate government fabrications and recognized as such by most civil libertarians) - for most Americans to believe that Washington D.C. could be as filled with as much horror, intrigue and deception as was ancient Rome. Still, according to PBS journalist Robert MacNeil -

"... anybody would have to be a fool, nowadays, to dismiss [the] conspiracies [of America's 'government within a government' as merely the mutterings of a fool].  But perhaps we live in a fool's paradise ..."

NOTE: Concerning the reality of these "conspiracies," the late Carl Sagan was once heard to say - "Detecting conspiracies when there are no conspiracies is a symptom of paranoia; but detecting them when they exist is a sign of mental health." [Sagan was referring to the JFK assassination.]


And make no mistake about it, the DECEPTION that our "government within a government" (which controls the national media) and its enforcer, the CIA, deal in is truly a sinister and clandestine affair, and its influence today in the United States has become so pervasive that it is difficult for ordinary people to understand where truth leaves off, and lies begin.

Indeed, this is so much the case that one must continually ask himself when dealing with the so-called "truths" the government is peddling to the people whether or not there is any factual basis for what they are purveying; for example, whether or not America's immense military machine is for our defense (as the government tells us), or whether or not its main purpose is to enforce order on America's slave-states; or whether or not America is in Iraq to "build democracy" (as the government tells us), or whether it is there to rob the people of Iraq of their oil wealth - and on and on and on ad infinitum. [Please see our article, "The Corporate State and the Mass Media."]

The fact is, the twilight zone of truth and lies that encompasses us today is so massive that the Bible takes special note of it (cf. Mat. 24:24) by warning Christians not to be misled by it at the "time of the end" - and this warning is very, very apropos because in order to be carried away by this deception, there has to be - and this is important - a certain willingness on the part of the deceived to be deceived; specifically, a certain DILEBERATE inclination to be "misled."

In other words, there has to be a certain readiness on the part of those who are being deceived to be deceived - and thus the fault insofar as deception is concerned rests not only with those who are doing the deceiving, but also with those who are being deceived. IT'S FOR THIS REASON THAT THE JUDGMENT OF GOD IS SO SEVERE INSOFAR AS "BABYLON THE GREAT" IS CONCERNED; IT'S A JUDGMENT THAT WILL FALL NOT ONLY ON AMERICA'S ELITES, BUT ALSO ON AMERICA'S PEOPLE.

The very real fact of the matter is, the truth behind the activities of America's vile "government within a government" - e.g., the JFK assassination, the RFK assassination, the MLK assassination, Watergate, the Gulf or Tonkin Incident, the Pentagon Papers, the Contra fiasco, Irangate, the MIA controversy, the October Surprise, the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, 9-11, and on and on ad infinitum - can be ferreted out if one wants to do so - and this despite the reality that America's "government within a government" controls the national media.

It is, after all, not that difficult to ferret this information out; the fact that the great majority of the American people still believe what the elites tell them regarding these incidents is proof that they really don't want to know the truth concerning these matters - just like most of the German people refused to believe that their government was slaughtering the Jews. The fact that all the Jews in their midst had disappeared, the fact that cattle cars filled with Jews were passing through Germany from Hungary to Auschwitz in plain sight of the German people - none of these things could make most Germans face up to what was really happening. And so also with Americans today. [Please see our articles, "Conspiracy Theories," MK-Ultra and the Search for the Manchurian Candidate" and "Now Is the Time to Do Something; It May Be Too Late Tomorrow."]


It's precisely this "studied" and very deliberate ignorance on the part of most Americans that makes possible what America's "government within a government" is doing - AND THAT, ipso facto, PLACES BARAK OBAMA IN SUCH GRAVE PERIL, a man who like Kennedy is not disposed to go along with its plans for imposing the avarice and brutality of the American New World Order System on the rest of the world. Thus, when America's "government within a government" deems it necessary to kill Obama, it believes that it can count on the American people to look the other way as they did with the JFK, RFK and MLK assassinations, and to chalk it up to a lone gunman like Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, or James Earl Ray.


And there can be no doubt about it, there is plenty that America's "government within a government" is up to that Obama will object to, just as Kennedy objected to what it was doing in Cuba (the Bay of Pigs) and Vietnam. For example, take what America's "government within a government" is up to in Central Asia and on the Indian sub-continent.

For some time now, America's "government within a government" has been deliberately involved in a plan to destabilize this entire region. Speaking concerning this effort, British journalist Andrew Marshall - commenting on a series of bombings in New Delhi on September 13, 2008 (2 months prior to the recent terror attacks in Mumbai) - writes:

"Recent terror attacks in New Delhi on September 13, 2008, raise the questions of who was responsible and for what reason these attacks occurred. Terror attacks in India are not a new phenomenon; however, in their recent past, they can be largely attributed to the actions, finances, training and resources of one organization: The Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). These new bombings bare the same relationship with the ISI as has occurred in the past, and so it must be asked: what is the purpose of the ISI both in Central Asia as well as South Asia? [Please see our article, "Promoting Chaos in the Interests of the American New World Order System."]

Marshall answers his own question:

"The ISI appears to play the role of a force for the destabilization of Central Asia, India and the Middle East. It acts as a Central Asian base of operations for the CIA to carry out American imperial aims." [Again, please see our article, "Promoting Chaos in the Interests of the American New World Order System."]


The media portrays the ISI as a "rogue force" not answerable to anyone; now while that may be true insofar as government officials in Pakistan are concerned, IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE INSOFAR AS THE CIA IS CONCERNED.

The ISI is the creation of the CIA - at least in its modern form when it was transformed by the CIA into a puppet agency of the organization in 1977; at that time, the ISI was oriented against India by the CIA because India was considered to be inimical to the interests of the United States due to its independent stand as a leader in the "Non-Aligned Group of Nations." In addition - and under the tutelage of the CIA - the ISI was expanded and made responsible for the collection of intelligence about the Sindh based Communist party and monitoring the Shia organization after the Iranian revolution of 1979, as well as monitoring various political parties in Pakistan such as the Pakistan People's Party (PPP).

NOTE: The Pakistan People's Party is the Party of Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated recently - most likely by the CIA because of her promise to break up the ISI. Her son, Bilawal Bhutto is now the head of the PPP - something that cannot but be a matter of great concern to the US, and a reason why America's "government within a government" is moving so mightily to destabilize Pakistan and break up the country. This is exactly what the US did to Yugoslavia when Milosevic refused to go along with America's (and Germany's) effort to "de-socialize" Yugoslavia and open the country up for exploitation by American (and German) multi-national corporations. [Please see our articles, "Kosovo and America: What's Going On?" and "More Lies and Deception Concerning Kosovo."]


The Soviet-Afghan war of the 1980s saw the enhancement of the covert action capabilities of the ISI by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). THIS MARKED THE BEGINNING OF THE CIA'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE MUJAHADIN VIA THE ISI.

The ISI became the CIA's conduit into the Mujahadin; from this point onward, the Mujahadin was transformed into a tool for the CIA - both in Pakistan and in Afghanistan. A special Afghan Section was created under the command of colonel Mohammed Yousaf to oversee the coordination of the war against the Soviet forces in Afghanistan. A number of officers from the ISI's Covert Action Division received training in the US and many covert action experts of the CIA were attached to the ISI to guide it in its operations against the Soviet troops.

AND JUST HOW MUCH A TOOL THE ISI HAS BECOME IN THE HANDS OF THE CIA WAS MADE CLEAR IN ITS ROLE IN THE TURMOIL CAUSED BY THE CIA IN YUGOSLAVIA AND LATER IN 9-11. In Yugoslavia, the ISI recruited Mujahadin fighters to support America's war in support of the breakaway state of Bosnia from the Yugoslav Federation. It sent fighters into Bosnia, Macedonia and Kosovo to sow chaos and exacerbate ethnic tensions against the Serbs, leading to the break-up of Yugoslavia. All this was done with the tacit approval, support and complicity of the CIA. [Again, please see our articles, "Kosovo and America: What's Going On?" and "More Lies and Deception Concerning Kosovo."]

The ISI also played a roll in 9/11 itself, as its General was in Washington in the lead up to and during the 9/11 attacks, meeting with top intelligence, State Department and Congressional officials, including CIA Director George Tenet, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Senator Bob Graham and Representative Porter Goss, who would go on to become CIA director. The ISI's General, while meeting with all these top US officials in foreign affairs and intelligence, also happened to be the money man behind 9/11, having wired $100,000 to the lead 9/11 hijacker, Mohammed Atta. [Please see our article, "The Events of September 11, 2001: What's Going On?"; please see our article, "Lies and Deceit in the Service of the American New World Order System."]


These twin incidents - i.e., (1) the ISI's involvement with the CIA in the breakup of the former Yugoslavia and (2) the ISI's involvement in 9-11 - indicate clearly the toady relationship the ISI has with the CIA (and America's "government within a government").

The very real fact of the matter is, the ISI is the CIA's handmaiden in Central Asia and on the Indian subcontinent - AND IT IS WITH THIS IN MIND THAT ALL THE ATTACKS THAT HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN INDIA BY THE MUJHADIN IN THE LAST DECADE AND A HALF MUST BE SEEN AS HAVING THEIR GENESIS WITH THE CIA, e.g., the September 13, 2008 bombing in New Delhi, the 1993 bombing in Mumbai, the 2006 bombing in Mumbai, and now the most recent terrorist attack, again in Mumbai. 

Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, a well-known economist at the University of Ottawa, and a member of the Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research, agrees with British journalist Andrew Marshall: That America's fingerprints are all over these attacks. He elaborates on this by describing what he has learned about the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai:

"The Mumbai terror attacks were part of a carefully planned and coordinated operation involving several teams of experienced and trained gunmen. The operation has the fingerprints of a paramilitary-intelligence operation [meaning the CIA].

"The attacks were carried out simultaneously in several locations, within minutes of each other. The first target  was in the main hall of Mumbai's Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station (CST), where the gunmen fired indiscriminately into the crowd of passengers. The gunmen 'then ran out of the station and into neighboring buildings, including Cama Hospital'. Attacks by separate groups of gunmen took place at two of Mumbai's luxury hotels - the Oberoi-Trident and the Taj Mahal Palace, located at the heart of the tourist area, within proximity of the Gateway of India.

"The gunmen also opened fire at Café Leopold, a stylish restaurant in the tourist area. The third target was Nariman House, a business center which houses Chabad Lubavitch, Mumbai's Jewish Center. Six hostages including the Rabbi and his wife were killed.

"A virtually unknown group called 'the Deccan Mujahideen', has according to reports, claimed responsibility for these attacks. The Deccan Plateau refers to a region of central-Southern India largely centered in the State of Andhra Pradesh.  This unknown group has already been categorized [by the CIA], without supporting evidence, as belonging to the Al Qaeda network of terrorist organizations.

"Police reports confirm that  nine 'suspected attackers' have been arrested and three of the attackers have, according to unconfirmed police sources, confessed to belonging to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) [Lashkar-e-Tayyiba], a Pakistani Kasmiri separatist organization, covertly supported by Pakistani military intelligence (ISI). At least one of the arrested, according to the reports, is a British citizen of Pakistani descent."


Chossudovsky notes with some disdain the attempt by the Western press (at the behest of the CIA) to pass the blame for the attack off on Al Qaeda:

"In chorus, both the Western and Indian media are pointing fingers at Pakistan and its alleged support of Islamic terrorist organizations. The Washington Post reports:

'Strategic gurus and security analysts in the US and from across the world are examining Pakistan's role in terrorism following yet another terror episode in India ending with fingers pointed at its widely-reviled neighbor ...

'The US media has centered its attention on the links between the Mumbai attacks and the "resurgent terrorist groups [which] enjoy havens in Pakistan's tribal areas as well as alleged protection or support from elements of Pakistani intelligence'."

Chossudovsky continues:

"According to the media, the enemy is Al Qaeda, the illusory 'outside enemy' which has its operational bases in the tribal areas and North West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Washington's self-proclaimed holy mandate under the 'Global War on Terrorism' is to take out bin Laden and extirpate Islamic fundamentalism."


Chossudovsky explains what's happening here: That the Mumbai attack is an attempt by the same people who got the United States involved in the War in Iraq to wrap up what's happening in Pakistan under the mantle of the "War on Terror," thus giving the U.S. the right to intervene (and destabilize) Pakistan:

"America's right to intervene militarily inside Pakistan in violation of Pakistan's sovereignty is therefore upheld. Bombing villages in the tribal areas of North West Pakistan is part of a 'humanitarian endeavor', in  response to the loss of life resulting from the Mumbai attacks."


He explains:

"The media reports point, in chorus, to the involvement of Pakistan's Military Intelligence, the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), without mentioning that the ISI invariably operates in close liaison with the CIA. The US media indelibly serves the interests of the US intelligence apparatus. What is implied by these distorted media is that:

  1. The terrorists are linked to Al Qaeda. The Mumbai attacks are a "State sponsored" operation involving Pakistan's ISI 

  2. The Mumbai gunmen have ties to terrorist groups in Pakistan's tribal areas and North West Frontier Province.

  3. The continued bombing of the tribal areas by the US Air Force in violation of Pakistan's' sovereignty is consequently justified as part of the 'Global War on Terrorism'."

However, this is nonsense! Chossudovsky elaborates:

"Were the ISI to have been involved in a major covert operation directed against India, the CIA would have prior knowledge regarding the precise nature and timing of the operation. The ISI does not act without the consent of its US intelligence counterpart."

In other words, it's not so much the Pakistani government that is involved here as it is the CIA. Chossudovsky goes on to say:

"Washington (meaning America's "government within a government") is intent on using the Mumbai attacks to:

  1. Foster divisions between Pakistan and India and shunt the process of bilateral cooperation and trade between the two countries;

  2. Promote internal social, ethnic and sectarian divisions in both India and Pakistan;

  3. Justify US military actions inside Pakistan including the killing of civilians in violation of the country's territorial sovereignty; 

  4. Provide a justification for extending the US led "war on terrorism" into the Indian sub-continent and South East Asia.


Very obviously, none of these things are calculated to make Obama very happy. Obama was elected to the presidency to put an end to these kinds of shenanigans and machinations - shenanigans and machinations that have their origin with those elements in the United States that killed JFK, RFK and MLK; the same people who, paradoxically, have allied themselves with American evangelicals to "conquer the world for Christ and the church." [We URGE you to see our articles, "The God-Men of the American New World Order System" and "Today's Church: Making Zombies out of Christians - the Prophets and Apostles Movement;" we also URGE you to see our article, "McCain and Palin: The Business Right Marries the Religious Right."]

There are many, of course, who believe that Barak Obama is nothing more than an "OPPORTUNIST;" that all he wants to be is president, and that he is more than willing to bend to the wishes of America's "elite of power." But I believe otherwise; I believe he is a genuine idealist who in the end - like Kennedy - will refuse to go along with the dictates of America's "government within a government," AND THIS CANNOT HELP BUT BRING HIM INTO COLLISION WITH THE SAME PEOPLE WHO KILLED KENNEDY.


In October of 2006 I wrote in an article entitled, "An American Coup d'Etat" the following:

"In the April 2006 edition of Harper's Magazine, the editors of Harper's pulled together a panel of distinguished experts to discuss the possibility of an American coup d'etat - one carried out by the American military in the interest of the American "military-industrial complex" and those who support the further expansion of the American New World Order System.

Harper Magazine's scenario

"Bill Wasik, a senior editor at Harper's and the panel's moderator, introduced the subject by suggesting:

'Eternal vigilance being the price of liberty, Americans - who spent decades wargaming a Soviet invasion and have taken more recently to daydreaming about 'ticking bomb' scenarios - should cast at least an occasional thought toward the only truly existential threat that American democracy might face today. WE NOW LIVE IN A UNIPOLAR WORLD [i.e., A WORLD UTTERLY DOMINATED BY THE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND MILITARY MIGHT OF THE UNITED STATES] ... IN WHICH CONQUEST OF THE UNITED STATES BY AN OUTSIDE POWER IS ... INCONCEIVABLE. EVEN THE BEST-EQUIPPED TERRORISTS, FOR THEIR PART, COULD DISPATCH AT MOST A CITY OR TWO ... To subdue America entirely, the only route remaining would be to seize the machinery of state itself, to steer it toward malign ends - to carry out, that is, a [military] COUP D'ETAT'.

"An American military coup d'etat has, of course, never really been tried by those who inhabit the lofty but shadowy and indistinct world of the ultra-rich, and who desperately fear the 'pedestrian egalitarianism' of the masses which they see as a leveling agency which - if left unchecked - would strip them of their riches and consign them to the coarse plain of the 'common man'.

"They have, of course, never flinched from murder and assassination [even regicide (e.g., President Kennedy)] to accomplish their aims and steer the 'ship of state' in a direction amenable to their ends (e.g., the MK-Ultra 'hits' of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and the minor 'hits' of 'lesser lights' such as Gary Webb and Judi Bari who desperately tried to 'speak truth to power'); but an actual coup d'etat? - No, they've never tried that before; they've NEVER DARED to try that before.

The Ultra-rich and the Common man

"To the ultra-rich, the Founding Fathers of the American Revolution were anything but champions of equality; they were, rather, the fervent defenders of inequality. Indeed, Richard J. Herrnstein, who held the Edgar Pierce Chair in Psychology at Harvard University before his death in 1992, and Charles Murray, who is a Bradley Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) wrote:

'The Founders wrote frankly about the inequality of men. For Thomas Jefferson, it was obvious that ... (people) were especially unequal in virtue and intelligence. He was thankful for a 'natural aristocracy' that could counterbalance the deficiencies of the others, an 'aristocracy of virtue and talent, which Nature has wisely provided for the direction of the interests of society' ...

"They continued:

'The other founders, including Madison, Hamilton, and Washington - ruminated in the same vein (as Jefferson) about the inequality of men and the political implications of that inequality ... The perversions ... (implicit) in the egalitarian ideal that began with the French Revolution and have been so plentiful in the twentieth century are not accidents of history ... Egalitarian tyrannies, whether of the Jacobite or the Leninist variety, are worse than inhumane. They are inhuman'.

"AND WHAT WOULD THE TEST BE THAT WOULD SEPARATE MEN OF 'TALENT', 'VIRTUE' AND 'INTELLIGENCE' FROM THE REST OF MANKIND? MONEY, OF COURSE!  It is the 'Horatio Alger Myth' taken to its demonic extreme: Those who possess great wealth prove themselves by their success in a Darwinian, economic struggle of 'survival of the fittest' qualified to rule. Those who do not possess great wealth, prove themselves 'unfit' to rule - and, as a result, they do not deserve the right to have a say in the governance of the country. And one must remember here that in the ultra-rich's estimation, financial success is not to be measured in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, but in the millions and millions of dollars - even in the billions of dollars.

The "Up-To-Now" impossibility
of A Coup d'Etat by the Rich

"The problem that has existed for the ultra-rich, however, is that very few people in the United States have been willing to cede control of their lives over to the ultra-rich in the absolutist manner the ultra-rich demand. And to complicate things further, the American military has been too representative of the population of the nation as a whole to be counted on by the ultra-rich in a coup attempt. Moreover - according to Edward Luttwak, a senior advisor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a second member of the Harper's panel - even if the ultra-rich could get the upper echelons of the military to go along with their coup attempt -

'You [i.e., the perpetrators of the coup] would sit in the office of the Secretary of Defense, and the first place where you wouldn't be obeyed would be inside your office. If they did follow orders inside your office, then people in the rest of the Pentagon wouldn't. If everybody in the Pentagon followed orders, people out in the military bases wouldn't. If they did as well, Americans citizens would still not accept your legitimacy'.

"Luttwak continues:

'It just wouldn't work ... You could go down the list and take over this headquarters, that headquarters, the White House, the Defense Department, the television, the radio, and so on. You could arrest all the leaders, detain or kill off their families. And you would have accomplished nothing'.

"Andrew J. Bacevich, a professor of international relations at Boston University and a third member of the panel, agrees with Luttwak:

'That's right. What are you going to seize that, after seizing it, gives you control of the country'?

"Luttwak goes on:

'You could shut down the media [in an effort to further your cause], but even if you did shut down the media, you still wouldn't be able to rule. Because, remember, in order to actually rule, YOU HAVE TO HAVE ACCEPTANCE. Think of Saddam Hussein: he was not a very, you know, popular leader, but he did have to be obeyed at the very minimum by his security forces, his Republican Guards. SO THERE IS A MINIMUM GROUP THAT ONE NEEDS IN ORDER TO CONTROL ANY COUNTRY. In this country ... [you have never had such a group]'.

The Times "They Are Changing"

"However, according to all the members of the Harper's panel, things have been changing in the country - and so much so that it is at last at least conceivable to seriously consider the possibility of a military coup d'etat: the two things that have prevented a coup in the country up to this point - (1) the lack of a military that would obey the ultra-rich in such an attempt, and (2) the shortage of a minimum group in the population as a whole that would accept the results of a military coup - no longer constitute the hindrances they once did. The fact is, there is growing evidence that the military - under certain circumstances - would take part in such a coup, and there is even more evidence that suggests there now exists a substantial part of the population that would accept the authoritarian results of a successful coup. Indeed, so much have things changed in this direction that Bacevich wonders:

'... whether, in fact, we're not already experiencing what is in essence a creeping coup d'etat'.

"This does not mean, however, that a MAJORITY per se (or even a plurality of differing and competing factions) in the country would ever support such a coup - after all, a coup would not be necessary if that were the case. Coups become necessary precisely and only because such majorities (or even pluralities) do not exist. A coup d'etat implies that the use of military and police power are necessary to impose the will of those who support the coup on the rest of the population. But even here - as Luttwak suggests - there still remains the necessity of a -

'... a minimum group [in the population] that one needs in order to control any country'.

The Culture Wars: Creating the "Minimum Group"

"That minimum group now exists in the country as a whole - and it has largely been created out of the 'CULTURE WAR' that has gripped the nation over the past twenty to thirty years: THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT THAT NOW ESSENTIALLY FORMS THE BACKBONE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

"The Religious Right today commands an astounding ONE-THIRD of the entire American population, and while there is little evidence that it possesses the ability to expand its popular base of 'TRUE-BELIEVERS' (as opposed to occasional supporters and 'fair-weather friends') much beyond this figure, this is still an astounding number of people that the ultra-rich have managed to gather about them.  And make no mistake about it, this 'CULTURE WAR' is real war, and it has irrevocably divided the country into two warring camps where there appears to be no 'middle ground'.

"Indeed, it is becoming increasingly clear that in this war, there can be only 'winners' and 'losers' - and that's exactly the way the ultra-rich want this struggle to appear as: a WAR.  Why? - because in a war, the use of military and police power can be justified as an essential part of the struggle. IN THIS KIND OF WAR, IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG FOR WORDS TO TRANSFORM THEMSELVES INTO BULLETS THAT KILL." [We URGE you to see our article, "An American Coup d' Etat."]


All this brings us back to what we indicated in the opening paragraph of this article:

"Forty-five years ago President John F. Kennedy (JFK) was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. He was targeted to be killed by 'a government within a government' that was concerned that he didn't 'have the balls' to be president; that he was unprepared to use America's immense military strength to carry out the wishes of America's 'elite of power'. Now Obama is in danger of running afoul of this same "elite of power" if he is not very, very careful."

It's for this reason that - once again - we urge you to be careful of how you use the "IN-BETWEEN TIME" that we are currently in. [Please see our last article, "A Disaster Is Stalking Obama in the Middle East."]

This is no time for complacency! Use the time you have been given wisely. Arm yourself with "THAT SURE WORD OF PROPHECY" -

"... whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts." (2 Peter 1:19)

Deception is everywhere, and the only thing we have to hold onto is the Word of God. Remember, brothers and sisters, what prophecy is all about: It is, as we have said so many times before, like a road-sign telling us that there is a "blind curve" ahead (a curve that we cannot at the moment see) and to slow down; if we fail to do so, we will surely slide off the road and crash. Obviously, then, when we fail to take advantage of the time between when we see the road-sign and when we finally see the "blind curve," we defeat the entire purpose of that road-sign and - ipso facto - of prophecy.

It's in the light of these facts that we URGE you to acquaint yourselves with what's happening today. Once again, WE URGE YOU TO CONSIDER TAKING THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS:

  1. We continue to need your financial help. We will, of course,  continue on whether we receive help or not, but if you can help and take some of the pressure off of us, please -


    We pray that you will remember the Word of God:

    "IF WE HAVE SOWN UNTO YOU SPIRITUAL THINGS, IS IT A GREAT THING IF WE SHALL REAP YOUR CARNAL (MATERIAL) THINGS?" (1 Cor. 9:11) [We are in desperate need of funds now that the year is coming to a close.]

  2. Those of you who continue to reside WITHIN the borders of the United States and who want to involve themselves in ALIYA -


  3. Brothers and sisters - all those who live OUTSIDE the borders of the United States - God is raising up a TESTIMONY to His holy Name in these "last days." If you want to be a part of this great work, please -

  4. Finally, if you have not as yet ordered your FREE DVD, "Greed Is Good," we encourage you to do so now -


God bless you all!
