An Insiders View
As someone who spent many years working from within the Military Industrial Complex, facilitating DoD contracts, I see these issues today through an entirely different set of goggles … But retain a intimate familiarity of the culture of complicity so many consider normal or “Thats just the way we do business” attitude. The power and influence this industrial cabal wields is mind-bendingly unconstitutional on many levels.
Look around you … No I mean REALLY look around you …
And you will see the collapse of a Republic and a global Empire via the mechanisms of a representative government wrought with corruption, cronyism, greed, complicity (treason), and (theatrical) infighting. This is resulting in the slow but inevitable awakening of We The People, regardless of our political affiliation or mindset, to this painful reality.
A historically large majority of Americans today no longer trust any of the bought and paid for triad of governance we depend on to lead this country, whether it be the Executive, Congressional or Judicial legs of this Republic. With a sustained polling of barely above single digit approval for said leaders, it is painfully obvious that trust on a multitude of issues has vanished. This is most likely due to the expanding public awareness of the steadily increasing Political Despotism, Perpetual Warfare, and Health Tyranny being forced on a shell shocked public, both against our will and in-spite of our increasing protests.
This is not a Democrat or Republican issue as this fall from grace has been long in coming. To blame one or the other merely plays into the hands of those who wish us distracted and divided. But to not see the marked acceleration of this process since the dawn of the twenty-first century, and the shift into overdrive in the recently past administration, is to pose a blind eye to absolute reality.
A serious look at the shift in policy and conscience of this government during the stated period reveals the constant erosion of our unalienable rights, our precious freedoms, our standard of living, our respect in the global community and more. This all culminates in a country devoid of self respect and a solid future.
But what is most striking to me as an individual who traveled the world extensively for almost three decades, is how the world is seeing America today vs the way we were looked thirty to fifty year ago …
As the 800 pound gorilla,
The bully on the block,
The big stick of an elitist caste that is playing God with humanity
… and the fact that America’s usefulness in the eyes of many across the globe … may be drawing rapidly to a close.
Then what? With an economy close to being in ruins, an already spread thin military, and a standing in the eyes of a large and growing portion of the global community as a pariah … what will be left for us when this elitist caste and their complicit government traitors no longer have a need for us?
Please watch the attached video to understand not only how We The People are awakening to our inevitable (but not necessarily fatal) global downfall (as all overextended and arrogant empires have and must) … but also how the world sees America as an evil empire … the likes of which thoughts of the old Soviet Union’s fallen empire have been surpassed.
When did we become what we hate most … and … Why/How did we allow it?
It is time to wake up and push back … or pay the piper …
The video presented below is several years old … but its relevant content and timeliness will be readily apparent …
