“In politics, nothing happens ‘by accident.’ If it happened, you can bet it was ‘planned’ that way.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
Since the murders of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, MLK, Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, little has gone right in this country. It’s like we’re headed for hell in a vehicle which doesn’t have any brakes, driven by a raving maniac. Remember, too, the Vietnam War (1963-75)–that heated up almost immediately after JFK was eliminated.  That conflict ripped the nation apart and cost the lives of 58,159 of our bravest sons and daughters. Think of the dubious Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. In between, the “Watergate” scandal surfaced and Richard M. Nixon fell from power.  The out sourcing of millions of jobs is also part of this saga.  Then, there was 9/11!  It was followed in March, 2003, by the Bush-Cheney Gang launching a preemptive strike against Iraq, at a cost estimated to be $3.5 trillion! And, the latest shock therapy for us: the Wall Street bailout and the financial meltdown. All of this might make your wonder: Is some powerful, shadowy clique orchestrating the decline of America?
Well, Dr. John Coleman thinks so. He’s the author of a book, mostly of a speculative nature, called “Conspirators’ Hierarchy.” Published in 1992, it’s now in its fourth edition. A former MI-6 British operative, he charged that America is being reduced to a vassal state by globalist schemers–“an invisible government”–who lust after a New World Order (NW0). If America’s destruction is not being planned, then does that mean it has been subjected to one incredible incident after another simply by chance? If so, what a run of back luck we’ve been in.
Dr. Coleman alleges that this powerful clique, heirs supposedly of the mysterious “Illuminati,” has set in motion a devilish plan to “deindustrialize America…[and to] accelerate the collapse of first [our] steel industry, and then the auto and housing industries.” Putting Dr. Coleman’s theories aside, here is what I know: As I write, the steel industry in this country is only a shade of its once mighty self; auto giants, such as Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, are either pleading, in varying degrees, for government handouts and/or looking for a merger in order to survive; while the housing industry, thanks to the disastrous policies for over 19 years of the ex-Chair of “The Fed,” Alan “Bubbles” Greenspan, is in a dangerous, costly tailspin.
Dr. Coleman further claims that the late economist Milton Friedman, who pushed for deregulation, the out sourcing of jobs and the privatizing of public assets in the U.S., was taking the same road as the globalist schemers. Maybe that was just a coincidence. Who knows for sure? We do know that the whacky Friedman sought to eliminate Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare! He was as deeply flawed in his thinking as the Neocons’ bizarre Godfather, the late Leo Strauss was in his. Dr. Coleman also alleges, in his book, that the subscribers to the NWO want to devise “a One World Government with a unified…monetary system under their direction…[and that they also seek] the utter destruction of all national identity and national pride.” Sounds pretty darn grim to me, if it is true! What do you think?
Unfortunately, there is little documentation in Dr. Coleman’s book to support his numerous conspiracy theories. They are his opinions. Period! Nevertheless, we don’t need Dr. Coleman’s theories to see for ourselves that our civil liberties, our ancient rights, our Middle Class jobs, and our way of life are fast disappearing. We can note, too, how many federal polices, such as those dealing with international trade, have been so destructive to our once acclaimed industrial base and to the working class.  The question remains: Who is behind all of this chicanery?
We can also see that many of our elected officials, in Washington, D.C., have done little about this debacle. Even now, with the economic and fiscal meltdowns, these politicos have turned the nation’s fate mostly over to private bankers and corporate hucksters, who don’t have the public’s welfare as a priority.  Doesn’t this violate the U.S. Constitution?
In an insightful commentary, Tom Eley tells us who he thinks Henry Paulson, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, really is, and about his close ties to the Wall Street kingpin, Goldman-Sachs.  While reading Mr. Eley’s piece, the prophetic words of Richard L. Trumka were still ringing in my ears. He’s the Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO. He said, on May 1, 2008: “Wall Street has hijacked our economy!” Mr. Trumka’s full remarks should be a must read. 
Stop and take a good look at President George W. Bush! Does he act like he’s really worried about the horrific shape the country is in? I think if he had his way, he’d be back at Crawford, Texas, fixing himself a barbecue lunch. He’s only hanging around the White House because his handlers are insisting, for PR reasons, that he do so. And what about that mostly spineless U.S. Congress? It just passed a $650 billion dollar military budget to enrich the coffers of the Military-Industrial Complex. This is before it voted for the bailout for the Wall Street parasites. Then, there is V. P. Dick Cheney! Where has that warmonger been? Down on the Eastern Shore of Maryland shooting at ducks?
I submit that none of the above politicos are losing any sleep over the current sorry state of America. The reason: They don’t really give a good hoot! They are part of the problem. Here’s another way to put it: If there were patriots running the U.S. wouldn’t they be standing up for the nation’s well being against these Wire Pullers?  Where are the patriots? I say this: The real patriots, like Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan, have been out in the streets, since March, 2003, protesting the illegal Iraq War!
I argue further that the people in elected office, at the federal level, who truly do care about our Republic, such as Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH), have been cleverly marginalized by the Controlled Media Cartel. This is why, too, excellent Third Party presidential candidates, like Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr, get little or no press coverage, and are also barred from the rigged debates, which are dominated by the DemRepublicrats, aka “The Duopoly.”
Getting back to Dr. Coleman. He insisted that America’s reputed enemies don’t look like monsters. He said: “They wear business suits and drive to work… in limousines.” Thanks for the tip. We’ll keep a keen eye out for those really long limos.
One of the scariest predictions in Dr. Coleman’s book is this contention: “[The Wire Pullers] are looking to [manufacture] social convulsions on a global scale, followed by depressions, as [a] softening up technique for bigger things to come, as its principal method of creating masses of people all over the world who will become its welfare recipients of the future.” Ugly stuff!
These are, indeed, strange times, that we live in. Some of the Capitalist types have resorted to socializing their losses by sucking up to the taxpayers’ bailout of Wall Street. The Military-Industrial Complex continues to make profits galore, while the price of oil has fallen to below $100 a barrel. Meanwhile, the power-hungry, Empire-expansionists, embedded in the American Establishment, are speeding the country to the financial cleaners, with the total collapse of the dollar waiting in the wings for its cue.  Who benefits, if the dollar collapses? The NWO? 
Let me leave you with this cogent quote from author Peter Dale Scott. The master observer of parapolitical topics wrote: “In the long perspective of historical time, we see that the communities dedicated to truth, and justice, and decency, tend to outlast those of the vilifiers.”  Take that you NWO creeps!
