Politics and the Defense and Media Industry
FIRE ALARM: In September 2000 a 90 page report titled “REBUILDING AMERICA’S DEFENSES – Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century” was launched by a THINK TANK called “Project for the new American Century” (PNAC).
This report established four core missions for the U.S. Military:
- Defend the American homeland;
- Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
- Perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
- Transform U.S. forces to exploit the “Revolution in Military Affairs”;
NOTE: This is September 2000
PNAC set off fire alarms when I started researching their associates and where their funding was coming from. They are an interconnecting web of politicians, authors, journalists, publishers and the news media. There was also an interconnection between other THINK TANKS with similar agendas who’s funding also came from the same military industrial conglomerations, oil industry, banking industry and Family Foundations that have profited from current and past wars.
NOTE: Two Bush presidents of the United States of America have attacked Iraq and put our country into a depressed recession.
Convoluted – Swaps and Trades
FIRE ALARM: The interconnectivity between Financial Institutions, the Military Industrial Complex, Oil Industry, the Transportation and Shipping Industry is multi national and complex.
Interconnectivity flows into the Pharmaceutical Industry, Health Industry, Farming Industry, Food Packing and Distribution along with the Retail Industry (clothing, appliances, personal care products, etc.).
In 2002 when the Blue Print for the American Dream unfolded, EASY CREDIT became available for everyone. Consumer consumption frenzy took hold as the war in Afghanistan expanded to Iraq.
By 2007 EASY CREDIT dried up. Our inflated assets deflated. People lost jobs and their homes. War spending in Iraq and Afghanistan continued to increase.
The 2008 stock market crash and Wall Street Bail Out shocked, awed and squeezed us again financially and emotionally. The money the banks received was NOT provided to the banks customers. It was impossible to get a loan. Refinancing our inflated homes became a lesson in hardship as unemployment skyrocketed in 2009.
In 2010 I traveled through the mid west. I noticed in many towns that Main Street U.S.A. was Foreclosed, For Sale or For Rent. Dollar Stores and Thrift Stores were open for business as well as Wallmart. On the highway I saw newer shopping centers with generic retail stores. The items offered in these generic stores were NOT made in America. Our shopping choices had become limited to the imports being advertised to us. Americana had become homogenized.
I had similar experiences traveling to major U.S. cities. I see the same generic, name brand stores. When you read the labels in these stores try and find anything made in the U.S.A.
Shock and Awe images in the news media and advertising, of war, fear, consumerism and patriotism have played with our emotions. Health care and global warming issues have been bouncing back and forth between debates, of truth and fiction.
Information we’ve received told us to be afraid and buy.
