Thank you, Gillian, for your thoughtful and insightful perspective.
America’s Precipitous Fall In Prestige & Power
Time moves forward at relentless pace. It seems almost between each breath some change occurs that alters the trajectory of the predominant belief sets concerning the status quo. Even false flags are receiving short shrift, being forced to give way to the exigencies of more immediate concerns like faltering economies, shifting international allegiances, and corruption so vast it can no longer be hidden.
Events didn’t get this way by accident. They were scripted to occur, and are occurring. The power elite who have dictated policy for eons have separated themselves from the body politic. They see themselves as entitled to do as they please and are of a decidedly service to self (STS) orientation. They are uncaring and indifferent to the consequences of their actions and they act without restraint of law or morality.
Case in point, America and Russia. “It is quite amazing for those who remember the Soviet Union of the late 1980 how much the US under Obama has become similar to the USSR under Brezhnev: internally it is characterized by a general sense of disgust and alienation of the people triggered by the undeniable stagnation of a system rotten to its very core. A bloated military and police state with uniforms everywhere, while more and more people live in abject poverty. A public propaganda machine which, like in Orwell’s 1984, constantly boasts of successes everywhere while everybody knows these are all lies. Externally, the US is hopelessly overstretched and either hated [or] mocked abroad. Just as in the Soviet days, the US leaders are clearly afraid of their own people so they protect themselves by an immense and costly global network of spies and propagandists who are terrified of dissent and who see the main enemy in their own people.” http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/1993-2013-is-twenty-years-long-pas-de.html
Americans Take The Fall For Rogue Governance
In the interest of controlling the world via international agencies the hidden hand manipulating global affairs infiltrated the Executive Branch of American government with an intent to dismantle this powerful nation state from within. Through the Executive branch it gained access to the National Security Agency (NSA).
Paul Craig Roberts writes “In the United States democracy takes a back seat to “national security,” a prerogative of the executive branch of government. National security is where the executive branch hides its crimes against law, both domestic and international, its crimes against the Constitution, its crimes against innocent citizens both at home and abroad, and its secret agendas that it knows that the American public would never support. “National security” is the cloak that the executive branch uses to make certain that the US government is unaccountable.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/paul-craig-roberts-how-america-was-lost/
How unaccountable you may ask? Ignoring at this time the multiple scandals attached to the Obama administration, let’s focus on the attitude of those empowered within this administration. “. . . After almost half a billion dollars spent on the computer registration system for Obamacare, the website coughed, sputtered and appeared to descend into an immediate coma as millions tried to log on.”
However, “[f]or many, the greatest surprise was not that the government spent wildly on a defective system, but that the failure did not result in a single termination.” In fact “the appearance of the still employed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a congressional hearing [on Nov. 6] led many to ask a reasonable question: What does it take to lose a government job? . . . “ http://www.shiftfrequency.com/jonathan-turley-close-enough-for-government-work-sebellius-and-the-irrelevance-of-job-performance/ Short of illness resulting in death, there seems to be no act performed by a high-ranking government official or bankster that could possibly lead to termination for gross negligence (the official) or imprisonment (the bankster).
It is precisely this lack of concern for the rule of law that has caused America to fall precipitously in the eyes of a formerly admiring world. Too many see through the sham of this most undemocratic of societies bringing “democracy” to the world. “Democracy” no longer serves as an adequate shield to hide imperial arrogance backed by military might.
“It would be naive to hope that this “de-imperialization” process of the USA could happen without violence. The French and British Empires collapsed against the bloody backdrop of WWII, while the Nazi and Japanese Empires were crushed under a carpet of bombs. The Soviet Empire collapsed with comparatively less victims, and most of the violence which did take place during that process happened on the Soviet periphery. In Russia itself, the number of deaths of the mini civil war of 1993 was counted in the thousands and not in the millions. And by God’s great mercy, not a single nuclear weapon was detonated anywhere.
‘So what will likely happen when the US-Ziocon Empire finally collapses under its own weight? Nobody can tell for sure, but we can at least hope that just as no major force appeared to rescue the Soviet Empire in 1991-1993, no major force will attempt to save the US Empire either. As David Rovic’s puts it so well, the big weakness of the 1% which rule the US-Ziocon Empire is that “they are a tiny minority and we are everywhere.”” http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/1993-2013-is-twenty-years-long-pas-de.html
