On Enduring Dictators and Darkness

December 5, 2007

If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.
- President-Elect George W. Bush, Dec. 18, 2000

In the Northern hemisphere, December brings the darkest days of the year. For many the lack of sunlight causes depression although we know that the days of darkness are part of the natural cycle and won't last forever.

We are also going through a dark period in American and Western history. It is clear to most observers that Americans, and their allies, are suffering under a criminal regime that rules through lies, fear, and deception. The tyranny of darkness we are going through has certainly lasted much longer than a winter season, but we should remember that just as surely as the sun will return after the winter solstice, this tyranny of lies and deception will also pass. Those who have supported it will be held accountable for their actions.
A regime that is based on lies, deception and fear cannot last long. As the Holy Bible says, we should not fear the evildoers knowing that their lies will be exposed: "Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known." (Matt. 10:26, King James)
Israelis and Americans are similar in several respects. Both are extremely propagandized populations suffering under criminal regimes. Israelis and Americans are both people living in nations that were created through immigration and settlement on previously occupied land. In both cases the indigenous people have been treated badly and suffered immense injustices. Both nations are also victims of propaganda and deception on a grand scale. False-flag terrorism and relentless propaganda have been ruthlessly applied to both societies. As a result, both nations are being turned into paranoid fortress states in which a very unhealthy fear and distorted view of the world is cultivated by the media and governments. Both states have become militaristic, reckless, and arrogant, thinking that their military power validates who they are. They have become the real barbarians of the world.
It may be difficult to comprehend, but the criminal regimes behind both states have committed and exploited acts of terrorism against their own people to empower their regimes and to shape public opinion to support their evil agenda.
I recall following a terror bombing in Jerusalem in which the first reports were that a parked car had exploded. As soon as the bombed car was towed away the reports were changed to say that a suicide bomber had caused the blast. (Note that terror attacks have virtually ceased in Israel in the years after 9-11.)
Americans can't say they were not warned that George W. Bush had thoughts of being a dictator: he said as much quite openly on several occasions.
If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.

"A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it," he recently joked.

Unfortunately, these outrageous comments by George W. Bush were never taken seriously. Likewise, his family's relationship to other dictatorial rulers is not widely discussed or known. As Burke's Peerage revealed, George W. Bush "is closely related to every European monarch on and off the throne."
Shortly before the 2000 presidential election a short story from Reuters in London about the Bush family ancestry was published, but only in a few papers and very briefly. It is, however, an article that is well worth reading.
The original Reuters story of October 17, 2001 appeared under the title "Bush Beats Gore in Presidential 'Blue Blood' Stakes."
LONDON (Reuters) - If royal genes have anything to do with electoral success, then Republican U.S. presidential candidate George W. Bush will be the next man in the White House, Britain's blue blood bible said Tuesday. Burke's Peerage, a revered guide to the breeding of the aristocracy, said both Bush and his rival Al Gore are of royal descent, but investigations deep into their heritage show Bush has far more noble and royal connections.
Bush is closely related to every European monarch on and off the throne -- including the King of Albania -- and has kinship with every member of Britain's royal family, the House of Windsor.
He is a 13th cousin of Britain's Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth and is a 13th cousin once removed of the heir to the throne, Prince Charles.
Bush's family tree can be documented as far back as the early 15th century. He has a direct descent from Henry III and from Henry VIII's sister Mary Tudor, who was also the wife of Louis XII of France. He is also descended from Charles II of England.
"It is now clear that Mr. Gore and Mr. Bush have an unusually large number of royal and noble descents," said Harold Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke's Peerage. "In point of fact, never in the history of the United States have two presidential candidates been as well endowed with royal alliances."
This important story about the man who became president twice through corrupt and stolen elections should have been investigated further by the newspapers in the nation. It was, however, only published, after being greatly reduced, in a handful of newspapers in the fall of 2000.
