Pentagon ‘Coup’ Completes Military Takeover Of United States Government

Pentagon ‘Coup’ Completes Military Takeover Of United States Government June 9, 2007

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

On a day when the majority of Americans were absorbed in the drama of a young celebrity woman, Paris Hilton, being sent to prison, and which was broadcast live on all US propaganda media outlets, the dreams of the Founding Fathers of the American Republic were destroyed by the complete takeover of the United States Government by its Military Forces.

At the exact same moment that the American people were being ‘seduced’, in what has become a uniquely to the United States ‘made for TV’ drama, America’s Top Pentagon Leader was announcing the ousting of the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, Marine General Peter Pace.

London’s Guardian Unlimited Newspaper, in their report titled "General ’sacrificed’ to clear decks on Iraq", stated on General Pace’s ouster:

"The Bush administration yesterday attempted to wipe the slate clean on the Iraq war and chart a new way forward with the surprise announcement that it was replacing General Peter Pace as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The defence chief, Robert Gates, said he had reluctantly decided on the reshuffle - despite his initial support for Gen Pace - to avoid a "divisive ordeal" at the Senate which would have had to approve an extension of the general’s term."

Russian Military Analysts, however, in their report to President Putin on the ouster of General Pace state that the Pentagon has now completed what is in essence a ‘coup’ of the United States Government, and which now sees the US Military in control of all strategic forces in America, to include:

US Army Lieutenant General Keith B. Alexander as head of the United States National Security Agency, US Air Force General Michael V. Hayden as head of the Central Intelligence Agency, and now US Navy Admiral Mike Mullen as head of all American fighting forces.

FSB reports state that the American President, who was attending the G-8 summit in Germany, when ‘informed’ of the coup by America’s Generals against his government ‘absented’ himself from the Friday morning sessions of the summit ‘feigning’ illness. 

More disturbing about the American President’s reactions to his generals were the reports of his behavior prior to leaving the United States for the G-8 summit, and which we quote from the Dallas Morning News reporter Georgie Anne Geyer, and who in her newspaper wrote:

"Friends of his [Bush] from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country’s destiny."

To this ‘destiny’ of the United States being referred to by President Bush, and which sees the United States and its Middle East ally, Israel, as the ultimate victors in Total World War, President Putin has taken ‘strong’ exception to, and as we have recently reported on in our June 7th report titled "United States Orders Concentration Camps Built To Hold Over 400,000", and wherein Putin stated his thought that America was indeed becoming like Hitler’s Germany.

Also to this final ‘destiny’ of President Bush, and his Israeli allies, is what the British people are labeling ‘outrageous’ in the symbol unveiled this week meant to represent London’s 2012 Olympic Games, but when viewed in its separate pieces spells “Zion” in a not so subtle reference to the Jerusalem mountain Mount Zion, and former Jebusite fortress conquered by the Jewish King David nearly 3,000 years ago.

The apocalyptic vision shared by the American President, and Israel, however, is not shared by many other World Leaders, including President Putin, and who believe that peace is indeed possible for the Earth even in the face of the catastrophic Earth changes rapidly overtaking our World.

Of the American Generals ability to hold onto their power against their President remains in doubt, according to Russian Military Analysts, due to the large private army built for the Bush-Clinton Cabal by an American right-wing Christian zealot named Erik Prince, and who has strong ties to the radical Christian right. 

To the growing fears in the United States of this massive private army we can read as reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer News Service in their article titled “What if our mercenaries turn on us?", and which says:

“Armed units from the private security firm Blackwater USA opened fire in Baghdad streets twice in two days last week. It triggered a standoff between the security contractors and Iraqi forces, a reminder that the war in Iraq may be remembered mostly in our history books for empowering and building America’s first modern mercenary army.

There are an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 armed security contractors working in Iraq, although there are no official figures and some estimates run much higher. Security contractors are not counted as part of the coalition forces. When the number of private mercenary fighters is added to other civilian military "contractors" who carry out logistical support activities such as food preparation, the number rises to about 126,000.

The privatization of war hands an incentive to American corporations, many with tremendous political clout, to keep us mired down in Iraq. But even more disturbing is the steady rise of this modern Praetorian Guard. The Praetorian Guard in ancient Rome was a paramilitary force that defied legal constraints, made violence part of the political discourse, and eventually plunged the Roman Republic into tyranny and despotism. Despotic movements need paramilitary forces that operate outside the law, forces that sow fear among potential opponents, and are capable of physically silencing those branded by their leaders as traitors. And in the wrong hands, a Blackwater could well become that force.

Mercenary forces like Blackwater operate beyond civilian and military law. They are covered by a 2004 edict passed by American occupation authorities in Iraq that immunizes all civilian contractors in Iraq from prosecution.

Erik Prince, who founded and runs Blackwater, is a man who appears to have little time for the niceties of democracy. He has close ties with the radical Christian Right and the Bush White House. He champions his company as a patriotic extension of the U.S. military. His employees, in an act as cynical as it is dishonest, take an oath of loyalty to the Constitution. But what he and his allies have built is a mercenary army, paid for with government money, which operates outside the law and without constitutional constraint.

Mercenary units are a vital instrument in the hands of despotic movements. Communist and fascist movements during the last century each built rogue paramilitary forces. And the appearance of Blackwater fighters, heavily armed and wearing their trademark black uniforms, patrolling the streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, may be a grim taste of the future. In New Orleans Blackwater charged the government $240,000 a day.

" ’It cannot happen here’ is always wrong," the philosopher Karl Popper wrote. "A dictatorship can happen anywhere."

It cannot, honestly, be said that the American people themselves are totally ignorant of the horrific events now overtaking them as they are, literally, being force fed trivialities substituting for news, but, to their total fear of their totalitarian rulers there is no doubt, and their descent into the abyss of madness, not seen since the times of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, is nearly complete.  

The fate of the American people, today, rests in the vision of ‘destiny’ of their ‘wild eyed’ President, but which they no nothing about, but which the consequences of will shatter them all to their very souls.

There is a Lot More too this!
Sunday June 10 - 23:35 - Posted by 1e158283fc42c90d...

Please read the following post and replies:
G8, Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission
http://bellaciao.org/en/article.php...

I was in a family for more than 26 years who joined Organized Crime only this wasn’t any ordinary Crime System. My reply addresses a few issues, one being that the family constantly bragged about being involved in "The World’s Largest Criminal System". I also mentioned in the above post that there is a lot more to talk about regarding these issues.

Blackwater has been discussed in front of me while I attended this Church.

Please note that the Church I talked about is known as Willow Creek Church, South Barrington Il. Websites seem to confirm that Erik Prince, Blackwater USA is associated with this Church. Please note that the huge drug system I referred to as known from “from the family” and “my own witnessing of events unfold at this Church”, MORE than appear to be “run out of this Church”. The weekly drug run size of ONLY the Chicago run is $100 Million and comes out of Mexico. There are many other Drug runs to other parts of the US as well. Also accept that I know “from the family” that Chiquita, Drummond, Coke and many others are part of this. By the way, the family also laundered criminal money from Gun Running besides Drugs and this is currently in the news. However, the family’s connection with the Church, as they have repeatedly told me, is with the Security Director and ALL of the criminal activities went through this individual. Over the years, I met a number of the people involved while visiting with the family either at gatherings or at my Brother-in-law’s house. I was directly told to forget meeting these people! Some of the people I’ve met were actually seen in setup car accidents that were intended at attacking me during my divorce.

Starting in 1999 I started attending Willow Creek as well as attending their Single’s Events and left the Church at the end of 2005. Many more interesting and informative situations happened. Because of being threatened and harassed I also went to the Police more times than I would want to talk about. I talked to different people within the Church about what I was going through and the Church became very concerned about what I was talking about. Eventually they removed me from the Church by trying to discredit me. There is a lot more to this but this is all I’m going to talk about at this time.

Please note that in my other post, I mentioned that the Church partially sits on property once owned by someone from Organized Crime. I also mentioned that “the family” also talked about this person and that he has a “good thing going”. This person’s home is right in the backdrop behind the Church. “The family” talked often about this Organized Crime person as well as the Church so I know a great deal. As being in this family, we were forbidden to attend or even visit Willow Creek. As the family nicknamed them “The Guys” we were told specifically to stay away.

Anyone wanting to learn more need to research about Willow Creek and others involved in current events within our Government as I’m positive you will surface more interesting facts. Please realize that the Senior Minister of Willow Creek was Bill Clintons personal Spiritual Advisor and visited him monthly at the White House.

In Summary, my more than 26 years of experience within this family gave me more than ample knowledge of what they were involved in. Before joining this criminal group they started a small bank with three other people. This took place shortly after I married. One of the three partners had a son who had experience with working with Banks so the owners decided to put him in as President. Around 6 months later, the FDIC came in and closed the bank requiring an emergency meeting with the owners.

What my father-in-law learned was that someone had given out a non-collateralized loan with an amount that exceeded the Banks assets. The ownership was told that they would need to cover the problem or the Bank would eventually go under. The owners decided to let it go under and it did in a few months. During this time, my father-in-law wanted to know WHO and WHY this happened. Somehow, they heard about the Security Director from Willow Creek he didn’t have this position at this time that I know of) and decided to have him look deeper into this issue. Within a few weeks and mind you, all of us heard nothing but screaming and yelling during this time, they came back and said the Bank President had given out the loan to an Organized Crime person. Somehow, the family decided to have this person murdered and hired the same people who did the detective work for the murder.

They aggressively went after him to where he immediately divorced his wife and gave her everything. Somehow he knew he was doomed. It wasn’t long before he was his in the driver’s side by an oncoming small car traveling at high speed.

Not long after he died, my wife and I came home from work. At home, she told me that we had to run to her father’s house that it was important. So we flew to the family home where my wife and I sat at the kitchen table across from her father and her mother sat to my right. Standing to my left of my father-in-law was my oldest brother-in-law. Everyone was staring at me and they were joking around. Remember that for all this time all I ever heard was yelling and screaming then I starting hearing this dead persons name being mentioned. So while there I didn’t know what to think and to listen to them laugh made me nervous.

After about 15 minutes my wife’s father motioned to my wife and then she instructed me to follow her. We walked into another room next to the kitchen where a small oval table with a lamp that was on sat next to the wall. I was instructed to read what was on the table. It was a clipping of the Obituary of the former Bank President. I bent over to read and noticed that my father in law and brother in law were now standing out of the kitchen and directly staring at me. I didn’t like what was happening and felt very nervous and scared but went along with reading the clipping. I read it a few times and said out loud, “Well, he had it coming!” remembering that his name was the name that was yelled out all this time. We went back into the kitchen and sat in our original seats. I tried to joke around with them, but all the time I started to wonder what the hell was going on here. They continued to stare at me as if my behavior was going to tell them something. Please accept that some years later, the family admitted to murdering this person and it was a plot carried out with the person who is the Security Director, as they often said that he is “the Leader of the group”.

Maybe minutes later, another family member with his wife arrived and they did the exact same routine that I went through. Actually now it was my sister-in-law who was to read the notice. She said the exact same thing I said! Then they say back in the kitchen. My wife asked about another family member as if he had seen it and the answer was yes.

While my wife and I were leaving I asked her before getting into our car “how he died?” She grimaced and said he was struck in the driver’s door by a high speed white car while sitting at a stop light waiting for a green light. Later, my wife and other members in the family probed me to see how I felt or what I had to say. I never said much but as time went by, I became more and more concerned and suspicious. Over the years the family seemed to be involved in other murders and I know about an Attempted Murder on another person a few years later. That one came directly from my oldest Brother-in-law as he knew I knew this person and approached me on a Saturday morning to strongly tell me that he didn’t care if this person was killed or not! He then walked away leaving me wondering what the hell this was all about.

The family grew more and more paranoid and living in the family became almost unbearable. The two men who ran the family business started to act as though people were trying to poison them. At family gatherings, they frequently worried about the food and had everyone else eat first. They sat to the side and watched everyone to see if they were OK. They held their drinks in front of them and if they placed it down, they immediately asked for a new one. When any member of the family wanted to buy a car, the family HAD to look over the vehicle to see if it was strong enough to withstand car accidents. They kept telling us that there is a war on the street and car accidents happen frequently. You need to know that many of my father-in-law’s friends died in car accidents and some of them seemed possibly to be murder. Many of them were once owners of property development companies too.

Again, there is a lot more as I could talk for weeks or perhaps even months about this. Remember, I have over 26 years with them and afterwards, I dealt with even more problems. This is a very dangerous criminal group as they work in the fringes of the law and away from our awareness. This is done so anyone trying to surface what they are up to will find it very difficult to find anything. Many Police are either involved with them, corrupt or can’t see what is happening.

I also know about many Police Reports that include other people, some are from friends of mine, involving this group and a large Bank who is internationally known. Again, there is so much about this to talk about that writing about it would take almost forever. Also, there are many MOB links to this as well.

Please note that often I have difficulties with using computers especially while on the Internet. So if my post has crazy errors, please consider them coming from my troubles.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic.
