THE ROAD TO >>DICTATORSHIP>>

It's the oldest trick in the book,
dating back to Roman times; creating the enemies THEY need.
extremely wealthy man,
Marcus Licineus Crassus,

of what sort of man

would offer to buy it
on the spot
for a tiny fraction
of it's worth.
If the owner sold,
Crassus' slaves would put out the fire.
If the owner refused to sell,
Crassus allowed the building to burn to the ground.
By means of this device,
Crassus eventually came to be the largest single private land holder in Rome,

had no intention of marching on Rome itself,
a move he knew to be suicidal.
Spartacus and his band
wanted nothing to do
had planned from the start
merely to loot enough money
in the Italian countryside
a mercenary fleet
in which.... to sail ...to..freedom
Sailing away was the last thing
wanted Spartacus to do.
He needed a convenient enemy
with which to terrorize Rome itself
for his personal political gain.
So Crassus bribed the mercenary fleet
to sail without Spartacus,
then positioned two Roman legions in such a way
that Spartacus had no choice but to march on Rome.
Terrified of the impending arrival of the much-feared army of gladiators,
Rome declared Crassus Praetor.
Crassus then crushed Spartacus' army
and even though
Pompeii took the credit,
Crassus was elected
Consul of Rome the following year.
With this maneuver,
the Romans surrendered their Republican form of government.
Soon would follow the first
Crassus, Pompeii + Julius Caesar,
followed by the reign of the
Emperors of Rome.
The Romans were hoaxed into surrendering their Republic,
and accepting the rule of Emperors.
Julius Caesar's political opponent,
Cicero, for all his literary accomplishments,
played the same games in his campaign against
claiming that Rome was falling victim
to an internal "vast right wing" conspiracy
in which any expressed desire for legislative limits on government
was treated as
Cicero, in order to demonstrate to the Romans
just how unsafe Rome has become
to cause as much disturbance as possible,
campaigned on a promise to end the internal strife if elected and granted extraordinary powers.
What Cicero only dreamed of,
Hitler,Adolph succeeded in doing.
Elected Chancellor of Germany,
Hitler, like Crassus,
had no intention of living with the strict limits to his power
imposed by German law.
Unlike Cicero, Hitler's thugs *
were easy to recognize;
they all wore the same brown shirts.
But their actions were no different
than those of their Roman predecessors.
They staged beatings,
caused as much trouble as they could,
while Hitler made speeches
that he could end the crime wave of

Then the Reichstag burned down;
a staged terrorist attack.
The Germans were hoaxed into surrendering their Republic,
and accepting the total rule
The state-sponsored schools
will never tell you this,

the Germans accepted Hitler

appeared to leave

When the photographer asked just what war that might be,
Hearst is reported to have replied,
"You take the photographs + I will provide the war".
Hearst was true to his word,
as his newspaper published stories of great atrocities
being committed against the Cuban people,
most of which turned out to be complete fabrications.
On the night of
February 15, 1898,
the USS Maine,
lying in Havana harbor
in a show of US resolve to protect her interests,
the commander of the Maine,
that NO assumptions of enemy attack be made
until there was a full investigation
of the cause of the explosion.
Captain Sigsbee was excoriated in the press
for "refusing to see the obvious".
The “Atlantic Monthly”
declared flat out
that to suppose the explosion to be anything other
than a deliberate act by Spain
was "completely at defiance of the laws of probability".
Under the slogan
"Remember the Maine",
Americans went to war with Spain,
eventually winning the Phillipines
(and annexing Hawaii along the way).

from a 1911 examination of the wreck
that there had been
evidence of an external explosion.
The most likely cause of the sinking
was a coal dust explosion
in a coal bunker
imprudently located next to the ship's magazines.
Captain Sigsbee's caution had been well founded.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt needed a war.

of a still deathly ill economy

wanted a war with Germany
to stop Hitler,*
but despite several provocations in the Atlantic,
the American people,
still struggling with that troublesome economy,
were opposed to
with lend lease,
and even ordered the sinking
of several German ships in the Atlantic,
but Hitler refused to be provoked.
Roosevelt needed an enemy,
and if America would not willingly attack that enemy,
then one would have to be maneuvered
into attacking America,
much as Marcus Licinius Crassus
has maneuvered Spartacus
The way open to war
when Japan signed the tripartite agreement
with Italy and Germany,
with all parties pledging
mutual defense to each other.
Whereas Hitler would never declare war on the United States
no matter the provocation,
the means to force Japan to do so
were readily at hand.
The first step was
to place oil and steel embargoes on Japan,
using Japan's wars on the Asian mainland as a reason.
This forced Japan to consider seizing the oil and mineral rich regions in Indonesia.
With the European powers militarily exhausted
by the war in Europe,
the United States
was the only power in the Pacific
able to stop Japan
from invading the
Dutch East Indies,
and by moving the Pacific fleet
from San Diego to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii,
made a pre-emptive strike
on that fleet
the mandatory first step
in any Japanese plan to extend it's empire
into the "southern resource area".
Roosevelt boxed in Japan
just as completely as
Crassus had boxed in Spartacus.
Japan needed oil.
They had to invade Indonesia to get it,
and to do that
they first had to remove the threat of the American fleet
at Pearl Harbor.
There never really was any other course open to them.
To enrage the American people
as much as possible,
the first overt attack by Japan
to be as bloody as possible,
appearing as a sneak attack
much as the Japanese had done to the Russians.
From that moment up
until the attack on Pearl Harbor itself,
Roosevelt and his associates*
made sure that the commanders in Hawaii,
General Short and Admiral Kimmel,
were kept in the dark
as much as possible
about the location of the Japanese fleet
and it's intentions,
then later scapegoated for the attack.
(Congress recently exonerated both
Short and Kimmel,
posthumously restoring them
to their former ranks).
But as the Army board had concluded at the time,
and subsequent de-classified documents confirmed,
the attack was coming,
exactly where the Japanese fleet was,
where it was headed.
On November 29th,
Secretary of State Hull
showed United Press reporter Joe Leib
with the time and place
of the attack,
and the New York Times
in it's special 12/8/41 Pearl Harbor edition,
on page 13,
that the time and place
of the attack had been

maintained radio silence

August 5, 1964,
newspapers across America reported

specifically the Gulf of Tonkin.
The official story was that

Captain John J. Herrick,
the task force commander in the Gulf,

when German Journalists went to Trnopolje,

they discovered that the photo was a fake!
The camp at Trnopolje was not a concentration camp
but a refugee center.
Nor was it surrounded by barbed wire.
of the original photo
that the photographer had shot the photo
through a broken section of fence surrounding a tool shed.
It was the photographer who was on the inside,
shooting out at the refugees.
Americans had been hoaxed
into support of actions
they might otherwise not have agreed with.
While several American Presidents
have willingly started wars for personal purposes,
perhaps no President has ever carried it to the extreme
that Bill Clinton has.
with the expected public statement of Monica Lewinsky
following her testimony,
Bill Clinton ordered a cruise missile attack on Sudan and Afghanistan,
claiming to have had irrefutable proof
that bogeyman extraordinaire
(and former Afghani ally)
Osama Bin Ladin
was creating terrorist chemical weapons there.
Examination of the photos of the debris
revealed none of the expected structures
one would find in a laboratory
that handled lethal weapons-grade materials.
Assurances from the CIA
that they had a positive soil test for biological weapons
fell on their face
when it was revealed
that there had been no open soil anywhere
near the pre-bombed facility.
that international observers
come test the remains of the factory
for any signs of the nerve gas
Clinton had insisted was there.
None was found.
The Sudanese plant was a harmless aspirin factory,
and the owner has sued for damages.
Later examination of the site hit in Afghanistan
revealed it to be a mosque.
back in Kosovo,
stories about genocide and atrocities were flooding the media
(in time to distract from the Sudanese embarrassments),
just as lurid and sensational
and as it turns out often
just as fictional
as most of
William Randolph Hearst's
stories of atrocities against the Cubans.
the government and the media
were hoaxing Americans.
A photo was shown on all the American networks,
claiming to be one of Slobodan Milosovic's Migs,
shot down while attacking civilians.
Closer examination shows it to be stenciled in English!
Like Germany under Chancellor Hitler,
there have been events in the U$
which strike fear into the hearts of the citizens,
such as the New York World Trade Tower bombing,
the OK City Federal Building,
and the Olympic Park bomb
(nicely timed to divert the media from witnesses to the TWA 800 shoot down). The media has been very quick to blame such events
"vast right wing conspiracies",
"enemies in our midst",
no different than the lies used by Cicero and Hitler.
But on closer examination,
such "domestic terrorist" events
do not appear to be
what they are made out to be.
The FBI had an informant inside the World Trade Tower bombers,
who offered to sabotage the bomb.
The FBI told him "no".
The so-called "hot bed" of white separatism at Elohim City,
occasional home to Tim McVeigh
in the weeks prior to the OK City bombing,
and is being run by an FBI informant!
nobody has ever really explained
what this second Ryder truck
was doing in a secret camp
half way from Elohim City to Oklahoma City
two weeks before the bombing.
here we are today.
Like the Romans of Crassus' and Cicero's time,
or the Germans under a newly elected Hitler,
are being warned that a dangerous enemy threatens us,
implacable, invisible, omnipresent + invulnerable
as long as U$-government
by that silly old
Bill of Rights.
there have appeared articles
debating whether or not
are not fully justified
under certain circumstances
such as those we are purported to face.
As was the case in Rome and Germany,
the government continues to plead with the public
for an expansion of its power and authority, to
"deal with the crisis".
as Casio watch timers are paraded before the cameras,
to the stentorian tones of the talking heads' constant dire warnings,
it is legitimate to question
just how real the crises is,
and how much is the result of political machinations
by our own leaders.
Are the terrorists really a threat,
or just hired actors
with bombs and Casio watches,
paid for by Cicero
and given brown shirts to wear
terrorism inside the United States
is it a stage managed production,
to cause Americans
they have no choice
but to surrender the Republic
and accept the totalitarian rule of a new emperor,
or a new Fuhrer?
Once lost, the Romans never got their Republic back.
the Germans never got their Republic back.
In both cases,
the nation had to totally collapse
before freedom was restored to the people.
Remember that when Crassus tells you that Spartacus approaches.
Remember that when thugs in the streets act in a manner clearly designed to provoke the public fear.
Remember that when the Reichstag burns down.
