In the autumn of 2002 America was rushing
toward the War in Iraq, orchestrated by the Bush Administration,
especially Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Though most people did not yet
realize this, Bill Clinton already had a very cooperative
relationship with the Bush family. He and Hillary were poised to
become seriously monied working for the same folks who had taken over
the Republican Party in the 1960s.
You don't need to be a Straussian to
embrace the strategy.
is the term coined by Irving Kristol, a student of Leo Strauss. The
philosophy Strauss originated justifies any actwhich
desired goal in the pursuit of power. When you understand this is a
philosophy which absolutely justifies deceit and abuse of power,and
extending control, the
corollary becomes clear. Those using Straussianism will, ultimately,
take steps to make their control perpetual because, otherwise, they
will suffer at the hands of their victims.
Those accepting Straussianism knew they
needed to evade exposure.
This explains the enthusiasm of both Bush
and Obama for Executive Orders. Although ordinary Americans think in
terms of a divide between right and left, this is an illusion. The
divide has been carefully created to stymie effective corrective
action by the people.
Notice how many of the measures now being
put into place were being planned years ago. Homeland Security, the
NSA, the militarization of our police and introduction of drones and
biometrics, and the CIA and FBI do nothing to increase the security
of ordinary Americans - but they are useful for controlling us.
Controlling America, and Americans, was
necessary to perpetuating their power and defending them from the
consequences of their deceit, beginning before the War in Iraq.
Highly Disordered in Power
you watched the documentary on Dick Cheney, now playing broadly on
television, titled, “The
World According To Dick Cheney,”you
find a chilling insight into the mind of someone
focused on centralizing and increasing the power of the presidency
using all available means. Cheney has long been a self-proclaimed
adherent of Leo Strauss, along with Don Rumsfeldt and most of the
cadre of individuals who came in to power with the Bush
appointed to find a vice-presidential candidate for Bush in 2000,
conducted a carefully scripted process which disqualified everyone
except himself. Cheney knew he could never be elected president
because he lacks the social skills necessary and, if he ran, his
questionable health and DUIs, among other issues, would have been
exposed to the media and the public.
described as a 'take-charge' kind of man,Cheney's
career is defined by treating politics as war.
Rove had a different agenda. While the Bush family certainly wanted
the War in Iraq and had been planning for it since W. was still
governor of Texas, Rove wanted a permanent hegemony over politics in
America. To accomplish this, he suborned the electoral system of the
United States using several different techniques.
in the late 70's, he displaced the growing power of women moving
toward social justice within the GOP, displacing this with an
artificially created presence of politicized Evangelicals, galvanized
and trained for political action.
this enterprise, he enlisted Ralph Reed and Pat Robertson, long time
associates through Young Republicans.
spread out a network of political operatives, both within the GOP and
elsewhere, in think tanks and the media. John Fund, formerly on the
Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal, is an example of this, as
is Matt Drudge. This allowedRove
disinformation at will in any part of the country. Both Rove and
Cheney's cell numbers are on Fund's speed dial.
also centralized the state Republican Parties, displacing
community-based candidates in the primaries with chosen and well
funded Rove functionaries. This was taking place in California in the
early 90s. Many of these targeted candidates were social
lock down his control, Rove ensured the move to electronic voting,
which he could control remotely. This worked for him fairly smoothly
from 2000 until last year.
next level of strategy was the media. The media has been controlled
through the CIA since the time of the Kennedy assassination,
according to Peter Janney, in his book Mary's
In exhaustive detail, the book lays out how a free media was silenced
through control of those who owned the media.
operatives in the media, who supplied CIA approved spin and planted
stories, became standard operating procedure. Continuing this
practice, Rove assigned the job of deflecting questions on the
visible problems with electoral fraud to John Fund, placed at the
Wall Street Journal by Robert Novak in 1984.
Fund was essential to deflecting attention from the issue of the
ongoing electoral fraud because Fund wrote, “Stealing
muddied the water on this issue. While he was only one of many
operatives, he was not easily replaced because of his position at the
Wall Street Journal. Therefore, political capital was expended on his
protection in 2002.

manufactured proof. Victims and witnesses can be silenced so they can
no longer defend themselves. Major events distract public attention,

of mass destruction. In the autumn of 2002 a juggernaut for war was
launched and moving.
in November, an unanticipated problem raised its head.
November of 2002 Saddam let it be known he would gladly leave, if he
was paid. An email correspondence began. Max Blumenthal, for his
father, Sidney Blumenthal, and through him to the Clintons, persuaded
Saddam Bush was only blustering and would not invade. They did not
know, at the time, someone else was reading their emails.

made was because I had found, to my grief, her word was not to be

changed her ways. This last was a lie, but she hooked me into
believing her for a while.

us. The disordered create chaos. But earlier the chaos Morgan created
was at least localized to her family and friends. When she broadened
her associations to the NeoCons, who are also disordered,
things got worse.
2012 I realized psychopaths never change. I also understood much more
about what had been going on with attempts to bring about the War in
Iraq and why Fund, Rove, and Cheney felt endangered by Morgan's
hacking.The Bush Administration knew Morgan knew about their efforts
to keep Saddam in Iraq so the war could go forward.

forwards from someone named Uday. She read them to me and sent one

could tell us where the email to Max had originated. The word came
back it had originated in the Saudi Arabian Emirates, and very well
could have come from Baghdad.

she was staying, also saw these emails. When Morgan decided to put a
keylogger on Uday's computer this was accomplished by using the
subject line, “Women without Veils,” which was the
husband, Eric's, idea. It worked. Reading the emails continued, and
included emails directly from Uday. I did not ask for copies and none
were sent to me.

Not a pretty picture.
militarized police, along with biometrics for tracking individuals,

resist and fight back. These are paid for by Americans, but produced
by private contractors. Today, contractors have become an essential
part of government.
