WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the
government can play.
Minister of Propaganda
During the 20th Century, one American military-industrial
complex war wasted many billions of taxpayers’ dollars, over
50,000 lives of American youth on the battlefield, many
more thousands returned home sick in body and mind in a war
that gained nothing for the U.S.A. except spread the wealth to a
limited number of politicians and industrialists, and provided
promotions for the military. It was the Vietnam War.
But Washington neglected home front propaganda. TV showed
the body bags and spread the news without government control.
Without control, the people spoke, the students spoke, and the
hippies marched and shouted. This was not what Washington
wanted to hear. Too late, the politicians tried to control the people
a la Kent University and when the troops came home, the people
spat. Their error was spitting on the soldiers instead of on the
politicians and the military-industrialists who had robbed and
killed fellow citizens for personal ambition and wealth. Objectors
to the Vietnam War spat on fellow victims!
The military-industrial complex has continued to expand its
military ventures with America’s Defense budget over ten times
the military budget of China, according to the CIA Fact Book on
the Web. The current wars have lasted longer than World War II,
but propaganda fools ‘some of the people all the time.’ Today,
we tie ribbons around trees, we have ‘pray for the troops’ and
‘support the soldiers’ movements, we have the Internet spreading
free propaganda for the government – not to support the war,
but to support the soldiers. Note how the word ‘war’ is rarely
mentioned, only ‘soldiers.’ Clever, because no one will argue
about supporting the soldiers; no one objects to the multiple wars
the country engages in simultaneously to “uphold our honor,” with the true meaning of ‘honor’ long forgotten, along with ‘common sense’ and ‘work ethic.’
Washington has taken the Muslim idea for “Family Honor” to
make Americans follow the leaders without thinking. This is
Sharia Law under another name. Washington’s ‘honor’ translates
into “waste more money and waste more lives so we can spread
the wealth to the politicians, the ‘defense industries,’ and increase
the budget of the misnamed ‘Defense’ Department.
I received a carefully written email example of this manipulation.
It was a long poem telling the story of a child going to Fathers
Day at school, without her father. Other fathers made negative
comments about her father not being there, classmates made
negative comments about her father not being there, but the
fatherless child knew her dead father was there, a tear jerker for
all to read through the power of the World Wide Web and the
Internet. But no one in the email asked and no one answered one
simple question, “Why was her father sent to the Middle-East to
The poems, the ribbons, and “Support the Soldier” propaganda
make sure the Vietnam experience of contempt is not repeated.
No, the military-industrial complex cannot continue spreading
the wealth if that happens.
No, “Never Again.”
Final paragraph of The Poem:
You see he is an American Soldier and died just this past year
when a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught Americans
to fear. - God Bless”
Then, readers are requested to pass the propaganda along and
say a “prayer for our servicemen and women.”
“There must be many other American, Canadian, British,
Iraqian, and Afghanistanian children sharing the little girl’s
sorrow, thanks to America’s servicemen and their families’
sacrifice to keep our country Free.”
They even have the gall to insult anyone who is not benefitting
from Washington’s Big Government – those among the 50% of
the population with above average intelligence who work for a
living. Analyze the last phrase above – “... the sacrifice they are
making to keep our country Free.” I am sure the fatherless
children across America will never understand how their fathers
being killed by roadside bombs in Iraq helped ‘keep our country
Free.” I certainly do not!
You cannot have a soldier as a dead hero without having a war.
Since Pearl Harbor, the U.S. has never needed or had a
Department of Defense. America has only had a War
Department. Washington read Orwell’s 1984 and adopted
the concept of misnaming government branches. Today, the
nation’s capital is full of agencies such as Internal Revenue
Service, the Postal Service, and, of course, the Defense
Department. Washington should have retained the pre-Pearl
Harbor name – War Department. The ‘service’ government
performs is similar to the service a bull performs on the cow.
Every time you forward a ‘Pray for the Soldiers’ email, you are
providing free propaganda supporting the military-industrial
complex. There is no need to ‘pray for the soldiers’ with out
wars to enrich industrialists and politicians. And if you believe
you should send a ‘prayer for our soldiers,’ send Mark Twain’s
prayer. Amazing that so few people think!
 Mark Twain’s War Prayer: http://warprayer.org/
A German military-industrial complex supported Hitler with dire
consequences. America has copied Hitler’s system of military-
industrial government as a way of life since World War II, wasting
many millions of military and civilian lives, trillions of dollars, and
injuring mentally and physically many youth of the many countries
involved. Every president since WW II has had a military venture
during his term of office, except for Carter, and he failed in his
only venture to rescue the Iranian hostages. The process continues!
Modern science is enabling the military to reduce the human
factor while being able to reach every country in the world with
very expensive unmanned vehicles, water craft, and unmanned
drone aircraft. With no body bags, who will object?
“Our honor is at stake” will be reason enough to spread more
wealth to the military-industrial complex. Islam uses “Family
Honor” to justify the shameful murder of young girls. We use “Country’s Honor” to justify the shameful murder of our young
men and young women and millions of helpless foreign civilians
described as ‘collateral damage.’ James Thurber said, "You can
fool too many of the people too much of the time."
A 2009 movie starring Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman titled
Brother portrayed a Marine victim of the Afghanistan war who
did not die physically over there but did die mentally. The
excellent presentation of the suffering of American youth fighting
our worthless wars since 1945 are of no importance to the military
leaders and defense contractors thriving at tax payers’ expense.
Add the millions of dead civilians and enemy youth, the displaced
people of all countries, lost homes and production caused by
conflicts, and fanatical leaders encouraging jihads and training
suicide bombers but failing to lead. Flags wave as our troops go
forth to build democratic nations with air, land, and sea power.
We are watching the 2012 Arab Spring turn into a grim 2012
Arab Winter of Discontent as the Islamic Brotherhood gains
power with our inspired and supervised democratic elections.
Today’s terrorist will be tomorrow’s heroic freedom fighter,
even here in America when the people realize the truth of
Thomas Jefferson’s words:
“Our government is taking so steady a course as to show the
planned destruction, to wit by consolidation first, and then
corruption, its necessary consequence.”
(1821 – Five years before his death)
The engine of consolidation is the federal judiciary legalizing acts
of the executive and legislative branches and making new law of
its own. Politicians are following the Cloward-Piven program to
bankrupt the nation in order to convert the republic to a socialist
government. The process is accelerating.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep
and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against
tyranny in our government. The last time this was necessary
was 1861-1865. It failed. Let us hope it succeeds this time.
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with
the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
