THE AMERICAN RESISTANCE - THE TIME HAS ARRIVED

By: Ted Lang

The time has arrived - a designation must be assigned to the increasing number of Americans who are fed up and terrified by the unbelievable and staggering criminal acts perpetrated both domestically and internationally by the Bush gang. Bush and his GOP are targeting and immediately attacking any and all inspirations of accurate journalistic reporting of administration wrongdoing, proving all the more how despotic American government has become.

Only days ago, the Washington Post broke the story of secret prisons abroad, and what was the reaction on Capitol Hill? Republican Senate Majority Leader, Bill Frist, was angered not by the illegal activity and the disgrace it brings upon America, but offered instead: "My concern is with leaks of information that jeopardize your safety and security - period. That is a legitimate concern." If this isn’t a clear case of a simpleton shooting the messenger, I don’t know what is!

The volatility and unpredictable dangers of our totally out-of-control and dangerous government should be more than obvious. The more the American people learn about the mass murder of innocent civilians by internationally-banned weapons of destruction and death, and also of the secret prisons and their torture chambers authorized by these criminals, the more desperate they, the criminals, will become and the greater the harm they will inflict upon our nation and the world. In this regard, the real media, the Internet or alternative media [AM], are both a blessing and a potential expeditor of more disastrous Bush crimes against humanity.

In addition to being a hindrance to the Bushevik regime in terms of slowing down the planned bombings of Syria and Iraq to further the annexation of the entire Middle East into the American Empire, time is beginning to run out for Bush and his cabal of international war criminals. The Internet keeps exposing their planned and intended crimes beforehand. How many people educated by the AM are there? But the AM is out there alone, and without any modicum of support from the corporate establishment mainstream media [MSM]. In spite of the Post’s "insensitivity" in reporting the truth about illegal American government activities, the "national security" excuse is once again being invoked by government traitors anytime a MSM editor makes the mistake of accurately reporting an item of news that brings criticism of the emperor’s acts of genocide, torture and napalm and white phosphorus secret mass murders.

It is for these reasons that BOTH the MSM and the AM, the Internet, will fail to provide any more serious obstacles to Bush’s plans for world conquest. The only chance America and the world have left is the American Resistance. Bush must be impeached, but that will only happen if Democrats persevere in the 2006 Mid-Term elections. That’s too far away time-wise to be of any help right now. The only solution ensuring the safety of humanity against Bush is for Patrick J. Fitzgerald to initiate massive indictments immediately!

The possible indictments of war criminals Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld over the next two weeks will be of immense help in stopping the Bush war machine. Should this happen, of secondary importance will be the classification and codification of Bush regime atrocities setting him up for the post 2006 Mid-Term election impeachment proceedings. This is where the American Resistance will play an important role.

So who and what comprise the "American Resistance?" Clearly, they are not American voters - American voters are, for the most part, uninformed as to precisely what’s going on behind the closed doors of their secret government. Voting never occurs at a time when it can be employed to make a difference. Naturally, the key contributory factor to the ignorance of Americans as to what is really going on has been the news blackouts by the MSM. These blackouts are largely consensual on the part of the "Big Eight" Zionist media magnates who thrill to the massive advantage Bush’s insanity provides for Israel. Additionally, as coined by former Alabama Governor, George Wallace, "There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats."

Adding to the inefficacy of the ballot box when needed to affect change is the growing evidence that elections are now being fixed by the political parties. There is nothing new about vote manipulation - Cook County dirty tricks involving voters’ ballots and votes by dead people, as well as "hanging chads" in Florida, have demonstrated the truth of this observation. But now we have electronic balloting, which has no auditable paper trail. Voting is demonstrably futile; that is, unless it is overwhelmingly a landslide and intended to remove incumbents to facilitate the impeachment of a much-hated criminal president that has lied and has killed and maimed so many.

And once in public office, what of their oath to that office, and accountability to the people, once campaigning politicians assume public office upon their electoral victories? What about their responsibilities to their constituents? Government accountability is yet another American pipe dream - elected politicians remain so, continuing as politicians serving themselves and their party via cash spoils from lobbyists and large corporate interest groups. America’s leading industry nowadays is war and the manufacture and deployment of its killing machines.

America has, for all purposes and intents, no First Amendment media, no voter impact, no control over self-serving politicians and their parties, and lacks also any alternative approach for throttling dangerous American out-of-control government.

The American Resistance is that small but growing group of informed Americans who oppose domestic police state tyranny as well as the international acts of mass murder and torture now being exported internationally by the United States and its war-making industry. And leading the American Resistance, are those TRUE American Patriots who have risked, and who are willing to risk, everything to help set the American people free. The Bush regime has wordsmithed and put into place all the legislation required to legitimize the brutal military enforcement of total subservience to the American political State.

The American Resistance gains prominence through the words and actions of Cindy Sheehan; she had earned the right to complain. The American Resistance gains strength by the TRUE patriotism displayed by LT COL Karen Kwiatkowski, BG Generals Janis Karpinsky and Rick Baccus, FBI Agents Kenneth Williams and Coleen Rowley, FBI linguist Sibel Edmonds, former Secretary and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul O’Neill and Paul Craig Roberts, Richard Clark, and many others that can be added to this list. What distinguishes these leaders as creators of the American Resistance?

Actually, for the most part, these are ordinary, everyday 9-to-5 people. In spite of their employment with the FBI, Agents Williams, Rowley and translator Edmonds had lackluster jobs until thrust into the limelight by the criminal machinations of the Bush war machine. What distinguishes them most, however, is that they are newsmakers and therefore virtually immune to media manipulation. Consider the total blackout of Cindy Sheehan’s Washington DC peace demonstration. The MSM had counted on the blackout as being the death knell for the resistance to the Bush regime; but just the opposite happened! Look at Bush’s declining poll numbers! And this in spite of the monumental total blackout and MSM spike effort! This is what is causing hesitation as concerns the planned military strikes on Syria and Iran. How much clout does the AM have?

The leaders of the American Resistance realize this simple approach: once the American people know what the Bush war criminals did, it won’t be long for a thundering and screeching cacophony of public outrage to launch the beginnings of Bush’s total downfall and impeachment.

The key is in informing the public. The majority of Americans don’t know about the Downing Street Memo, all the important aspects of the Plame-CIA leak, the AIPAC spy scandal, the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty covered up by the Johnson administration, the Pentagon Papers, or even the unnecessary wars engaged in by our military to include the Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and now Iraq. The only reason these wars have been singled out is because extensive evidence has been recently uncovered justifying this observation. Even the American Revolution can be shown to have been unnecessary.

America will never be informed by the MSM. The MSM is the tool being deployed to shape both public opinion as well as public ignorance. It is the leaders of the American Resistance, and the many denizens of the objective alternative media, that will bring knowledge and understanding to the people. Cindy Sheehan is an example. She created news even the mighty MSM couldn’t spike and hide. And more news-making leaders are emerging. And slowly, ever so slowly, elements of the mainstream media are beginning to understand the life-and-death struggle that free America is now engaged in with the real axis of evil: the political State, its compliant and totally dominated press, and the virtual absence of public awareness.

Americans must rise up against zionists

It’s so obvious that the US government has been taken hostage or invaded by zionists. Most, if not all, national policies, especially international matters, have been made and decided by a selected few Jews who are running their USI government behind the screen. bush, those Sedatees and those muppets in the House are anything but Jews’ Socket Puppets or Puppet Masters themselves. Together, these jewish Zionists are guiding and steering America deeper and deeper into their Middle-East Bloodpools and wars that have and will benefit noone but Zionists and their motherfukkerland Israel.

Kissinger and his henchmen (with logistic supports from MOSSAD) have concocted, planned and carried out 911 atrocities against America. They have bombed and PULLED down the 3 New York towers to drive stupid sheeples Americans into their planned wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and soon Iran. The Braindead President george ASSHOL bush has been installed and kept in the White House to rubberstamp and scapegoat zionists’ crimes against humanity and against Americans. Thanks to the protection and cover-ups of their totally-controlled media networks, and espcially thanks to those Socket Puppets in Washington DC; Kissinger, Larry Silverstein are washing their hands over their crimes in which 3000 innocent lives were killed or buried alive beneath the crumbles of those 3 New York Towers. Amonst those 3000 innocent victims, 1 FBI director was murdered in Building 7th, the very building that Larry Silverstein publicly confessed 1 year later that "we decided to PULL it. We ordered and watched the building coming down".

Americans are waking up from zioinists’ LIES of the Century. Zionists and their accomplices, such as bush and cheney, Condom Rice, Giuliani... are running scared. They have known that their 911 crimes will soon be exposed and disclosed to American public and to the world. They are pulling all strings to have their planned wars against Iran started to generate their Weapons of Mass Distraction to keep their criminal acts from being exposed.

We are living in dangerous moments in human history. Zionists are planning to detonate nuclear devises or weapons in Syria and/or Iran, because as we have known, they have known that there is impossibly any means to militarily defeat Iran, unless nuclear explosion. And zionists are pushing their Washington Socket Puppets and their Puppet Leader_ george ASSHOL bush_ to do exactly that. If The USI cannot overwhelm few thousands of Iraqi fighters who have nothing but AK-47 and IEDs; and if the (NOT SO)invicible IDFs, who are armed to their teeth with the world most sophisticate weapons and gadgets FREE-US-Dollars can buy, are humiliatedly defeated by a handful of Hizbollah fighers who are hiding in their caves; what is the probability of another Not-So-Cakewalk over Iran a nation of 70 million proud Iranians who are uniting and willing to die for their nation. For the past 15 years, Iran has been stockpiling to their necks with European and Chinese most sophisticate weapons Oil-Money can buy, on top of that, Iran can product and manufacture their own weapons and missiles. Conventional-weapon welfares are the last option any death-wish nation want to deal with Iran.

When will American Sheepels recognize the Clear and Present Dangers imposed by these zionists who are willing to take Americans down with them in their next Nuclear Holocaust against innocent peoples of Iranians, Syrians, Iraqis... 145000 American troops are in grave danger of being used as Pawn by rumsfeld and kissinger.

Wake the fuk up Americans. You are living in borrowed time.

To the two comments posted:

The only danger to America is the Bush Administration and the Neocons. Germany was destroyed by Hilter not the Jews. Read "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich". Hilter was insane and used the Jewish people as a scapegoat to solidify his position, much in the same manner Bush is anti-civil rights here. Like Bush, Hilter was convinced that he was ordained by G_D to lead his country to greatness. Instead, he took a country with wonderful potential and distroyed its future success. He murdered Jews, Russian, Polish and German people without any regard. Just as Bush sends our youth to war now, theirs is a life he is willing to sacrifice. And he is plondering our countries resources for personal gain of his family and cronies - corporate America.

I would call the Zionist the new Zionazis of the century. Accordin to the Nuremberg protocols, all Americans who are in support of the Bush system are guilty on all counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The America of the 1945 - 1967 does no longer exist. Face it. These America also lost its mind and innocence by dropping two nuclear bombs on Japanes civilians, a Japan which was already defeated and in a desperate seek of a ceasefire.

I hope this comment is not anti semitic. Did I mentioned which group helped to develop the nukes for America - Jews - oops - now I’m getting anti semitic. I should slap my hands. I just can’t help it.

To 209.235: Are you saying that 152.100’s blistering comment [BLA, BLA, HAHAHAHHAHABLA, SPIT, BLA, SPIT, SECRETIONS, HAHAHA, BLA, HABLA DE MIERDA, ETC] was the only one with some ’validity’? Such depth, such insight, you have 209.235!!
We must all bow down to you and your cohort 152.100’s obvious intellectual superiority!!
I have attempted to capture 152.100’s crisp and concise prose style, but somehow I come up short. BLA, HHHHAAAAHAHAHA, WINDBAG, HAA, is all I can do. But this is a mere empty copy to the near religious experience of the original, ’BLA, HAHAH’.
Surely 152.100 has more truths to tell the world, more perceptive thoughts to tell us. This extraordinary comment that I cannot besmirch must be the tip of the iceberg to 152.100’s opus magnus of prescient blatherings. May I be so presumptous as to give you a working title for your epic volume, 152.100? Here’s some titles for you : "The Secretions and Blatherings of an American Intellectual", or "The World is of Shit, and so is the Mind of the American Intellectual" or
"BLA, HA, HA!: The Secret Interior Life of a Lazy American Thinker".

Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting.
