Would You Like Fries with that New World
by Edgar Steele
Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by
reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
Good morning, fellow lemmings --
September 16, 2001. No, I don't necessarily think that scriptural passage refers to New
York. If true, then it possibly concerns Los Angeles, the obvious next target of our
terrorist friends from the desert sands of the mideast.
I'm tapping this out on my laptop on a plane -- the first that I have been on since before
September 11. Getting here has been a struggle, to say the least.
I was one of the unfortunate trying to catch a plane the morning of the WTC disaster. I was
one of the fortunate who failed. Thus began my odyssey to reach my San Francisco office in
time to oversee its physical move to a new location on Friday.
On September 11, I was to stop over in L.A. first, to participate in a documentary being
filmed about hate crime as depicted in American cinema. We're going to reschedule. I'm
not sure I want to go until after the other shoe drops, though.
I rescheduled my flight to Wednesday, then to Thursday. Desperate when those flights were
all canceled, it being midnight on Wednesday, I had my wife drive me to the Spokane Greyhound
bus station. 26 hours later, I was in my Bay Area office, with two hours to spare before
the movers arrived. It's been 38 years since I rode a Greyhound bus and the experience has
not mellowed with age. You simply haven't lived until you have spent a two-hour layover in
the Sacramento bus station at 3 am...or been scrunched up next to a guy with green hair and
multiple body piercings for hours on end. I can personally testify that the third world
has arrived in force.
I got a return flight today and came face to face with the New World Order. An hour just
to get the rental car turned in. An extra level or two of ID checking, then one of the most
cursory bag checks I have ever seen. I could have been carrying thirty pounds of plastic
explosive aboard and they never would have known! And the airport was deserted -- of
passengers -- on both ends. But there were about four times as many employees milling
around as I have ever seen. It was Monty Python come to life, but inhabited by the spirit
from Pet Sematary.
Between the fear of flying engendered by the recent hijackings, a serious economic downturn
and the fundamental obnoxiousness of a bad system made worse, I predict hard times ahead
for both the airline and car-rental industries. I know that I won't be flying down every
week, as has been my custom for some time now. In fact, I think it might be time to find a
way just to hunker down for a while in my out-of-the-way spot in the mountains.
As my wife drove up to collect me, I stepped out of the terminal with my bags just as an
airport cop walked up and dumped on her for pausing at the curb, saying that wasn't allowed
when her pickup isn't standing right there. I asked him what his problem was and the
short, fat little white-haired guy launched into me, telling me that what he was saying to
my wife was none of my business. Envision a red flag waved in front of a bull.
Before I disengaged, Shortfatlittle was threatening to arrest me and loudly demanding that
I move on. He refused to give me his name or badge number. "I don't have to," a sentiment
echoed by his superior, who I had on the phone within 10 minutes. Before I left the curb,
I motioned over a guy who had been watching the whole thing, wanting the name of a witness
for the administrative proceeding at which I was going to see this particular little
reichsfuhrer reduced in rank. The witness said he thought the cop's attitude was
reasonable in view of recent events. He has lots of company, it turns out.
A Harris Poll conducted shortly after the WTC tragedy found that 4 out of 5 Americans would
trade "some freedom for more security in public places." Democracy in action.
At about the same time, our congressional leadership quickly passed a new antiterrorism
bill, the provisions of which I have yet to review, but which reportedly include a
provision allowing free access to and review of all Internet-based communications without a
search warrant, probable cause or, even, reasonable suspicion.
I hate to join the Internet chorus, but it does look as though there has been a major shift
in American society. I suspect this truly marks the beginning of many things, chief among
them implementation of the New World Order.
This is war, like it or not. Modern war as fought by terrorists against tyrranical nations
and, in turn, by those nations against their own citizenry in the form of control. Times
have changed and events are moving too fast for subtlety.
This is war and we have had our first taste of the new war tactics. The rules have changed...
again. They changed for the British when American revolutionaries sniped at them from the
brush and they changed for America when the Viet Cong set booby traps such as poisoned
pungi sticks set at the bottom of pits dug in pathways and covered over with palm fronds.
The "rules" of war are made up by the victors of previous wars to protect their finer
sensibilities. Thereby, they lay bare their vulnerabilities, of course.
Now it is easier to wage war if you are not a country with a physical location. It is
easier if you don't announce your intentions by massing troops and acquiring ordnance. It
is easier if you hit and run -- easier still if you just hit and forget about
First, let me reassure you that there likely will be no more hijackings. Logic dictates
that the carnage of September 11 can occur only once. Never again will hijackers be able
to subdue a planeload of people who know they will die if they don't do something -
anything. Bin Laden may be a lot of things, but stupid is not among them. He knows he
cannot play this card again. Besides, while we are busy fortifying the barn, the mad cow
is out in the pasture, turning its attention to our other vulnerabilities.
Bin Laden has other options, almost infinite in number, given how open and trusting (fat
and lazy, some would say, but I am not one of them) America has become. Biological
weaponry seems the most logical next tactic. New York was an easy first choice for someone
who objects to the way his cousins are treated by Israel. New York is the original habitat
of the American Jew. Los Angeles, another serious concentration of Jewish interests in
America, is the logical next target, with Miami not far behind. I'd like to have the gas
mask concession stand at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards during the
We likely will move heaven and earth in running Osama Bin Laden to ground. Taking him out
will not end it, however. Bin Laden is an effect, not the cause. There are countless
others to take his place. This will not end until we end the reason for it.
It is amazing how few people seem to have any grasp on the why of the WTC's destruction.
It is more amazing how few there are who seem even to care about the why.
David Kelley, Executive Director of something called "The Objectivist Center" in
Poughkeepsie, thinks that "What makes them denounce America as the great Satan is nothing
as superficial as Coca-Cola or blue jeans. It is our secular culture of freedom, reason,
and the pursuit of happiness. They hate our individualism; what they want is an
authoritarian society where thought and behavior are controlled by true believers. They
hate capitalism as a system of trade, production, innovation, and progress; what they want
is a return to a primitive mode of existence from which these "materialist" aspirations
have been banished. They hate the political system of individual rights, the rule of law,
and secular government; what they want is a tribal society ruled by command."
What complete and utter bullshit. Or, as my little girl would say, "Yeah....right." (Ah,
if only I could get the right degree of condescension into the second syllable -- she seems
naturally to have come by a sneer that I can only hope to achieve after floundering about
in the midst of several hundred words.)
"Because we are the shining land of liberty" was the reason Seņor Bush gave for the WTC
travesty during his first public address afterwards. Give me a break.
Because we are Israel's enforcer, that's why. Because we fund Israel to the tune of $10
million per day, a significant portion of which is used to kill Palestinians and advance
the Zionist cause in the mideast. This isn't rocket science, boys and girls. We don't even
need to think about it, because the terrorists themselves have told us repeatedly why they
do it. In 1993, after the first WTC bombing, someone calling themselves the "Liberation
Army Fifth Batallion" wrote the New York Times and threatened further assaults. The
feds authenticated the letter, by the way.
The LAFB (probably not destined to become acronymized into "Laughing Boys") demanded that
America stop interfering "with any of the Middle East countries interior affairs." They
went on to explain that "The Americans must know that their civilians who got killed are no
better than those who are getting killed by the American weapons and support. The American
people are responsible for the actions of their government and they must question all of
the crimes that their government is committing against other people, or Americans will be
targets of our operations that could diminish them."
The Arabs really couldn't make a clearer statement of their complaint or the consequences
to us for not changing. There should be no confusion today such as I see manifested at
every turn in the media. Of course, it is the height of political incorrectness to
question Israel or anything Jewish. As they say, to know a country's masters, you need
only discover what group it is that nobody speaks of. In New York during the mid-1900's
you never said the word "mafia" out loud in public. Today, you cannot speak of Jews
without being roundly condemned at every turn.
It is time to lift the taboo against speaking about America's "inner party," its true
ruling class. It is time to start openly talking about things Jewish and their implications
for all Americans. It's time for Americans to examine what it means to be American in the
21st Century. We're not in your father's America anymore, Toto.
America has grown so accustomed to carrying Israel's water that America itself has become a
genuine cause of its own discomfort, rather than yet another symptom of the Israeli
compulsion to push in every direction until resistance is met. No, let me say it straight
out, because Israel itself is really a shorthand for what I mean: The Jewish need to push
until reigned in. Israel is like that because it is exclusively Jewish, after all. You
have to be Jewish to have hardly any rights in Israel (e.g., to vote or own land).
Similarly, America has become obnoxiously aggressive because America is now Jewish owned,
led and managed. There is not one single major media outlet that is not Jewish run. Only
2.5% of Americans are Jewish, yet 60% of the Fortune 1000 are Jewish owned or controlled.
Virtually all the power positions in Clinton's administration were Jewish; Bush has not
decreased the concentration by much. Incredibly few lemmings seem to realize any of this
and therefore express confusion as to why the Arabs hate us so much.
The essay you are reading now is the absolute farthest that this line of discussion can
reach today - and they are intent upon shutting down even this (witness the new law they
passed last week). Though other writings of mine get wide circulation and have been posted
regularly to a variety of Internet and written publications, I have no illusions that this
will go any further than being passed around by members of the choir.
This is a vitally important issue and one that demands a dialogue at all levels of American
society, so I do what I can, despite the consequences. I will not meekly submit to the
shackles being forged for all of us by our masters at this moment.
Object if you like, but please remember that there is a reason you are on this list. Some
are here for my politically incorrect mutterings. Some are here for my unbridled defense
of free speech by unpopular people. Some are here for my support of families being ripped
apart by tyrannical bureaucrats. Some are here because I pull no punches when taking on
the establishment, no matter who is on the other side. All these have the same thing in
common: I am opposed to injustice and unfair treatment of anybody. Another time and
another place and I might have been defending black people from the Klu Klux Klan or white
southerners from Reconstructionists.
I will never please everybody and I will not please anybody all the time. Several asked
to be deleted from my list after my missive of the 12th, due to the comparatively gentle
references I made to Israel. Many more asked to be added, however. I expect a larger
flurry of such in both directions this time, too, since I have taken off the gloves now
with regard to our true rulers.
How ironic that the most racist and exclusive country in the world (Israel) requires
through its proxies that its toady (America) become the single most unracist and unexclusive
country. Of course, by watering down the original stock, some argue, our masters ensure
that their grip on power will not be removed forcibly. The extension of that argument is
their explanation for the push to a one-world government, with the elimination of personal
freedom that is thereby entailed and in the process of occurring in this country and
elsewhere. Go along to get along, they say. Morally relativistic to a man (or woman),
anything goes, so long as they stamp out those who speak out against tyranny and oppression.
Free speech and every other component of the Bill of Rights necessarily have to go, of
course, and we are well along the path to that end.
John Kucek, of Watchung, NJ, notes that "When the government declared War on Poverty, we
got more poverty, when they declared War on Illiteracy we got more illiteracy, when they
declared War on Crime we got more crime, and when they declared War on Drugs we got more
drugs." Of course, Senor Bush just declared war on terrorism, didn't he? Gee, I wonder
what we will get now....
