What do they know that they are not telling us?

There has to be a reason why the U.S. government is spying on its citizens. There must be a reason why laws are being enacted to put the U.S. on a police state footing. There’s got to be a reason why the executive branch of government seeks more and more control of all aspects of governance, including shaping the views of the judiciary by placing jurists in high positions who defer to the executive at the expense of the influence of their own branch of government. And the fear of "terrorism" cannot be that reason.

Terrorism is a tool being used by the U.S. government to manipulate the American people. Of that there can be no doubt. 9/11 was the prototypical Pearl Harbor-type event that catalyzed American fears and made such manipulation possible, and the cover-ups by the 9/11 Commission and others have completely hidden from the American public the truth that their own government caused and allowed that dastardly event to occur. The media and the Congress have been completely complicit in this.

But why? What is at stake to allow Americans to be abandoned to murder, if not actually murdered by the thousands by their own government, just as the Naval personnel were allowed to be attacked by Japan in the original Pearl Harbor for purposes suited to the American government? The American government has never been honest about their complicity in the original Pearl Harbor, even sixty-plus years after the fact.

So why the current state of affairs? The best available information at present relates to civilization-shattering changes that lie in our immediate future. These involve the end of the era of cheap oil and the related phenomenon of global climate change. The end of the oil era will without a doubt coincide with the end of American predominance over the world, because American wealth and military power are directly tied to oil-derived wealth and control of strategic oil in an era that is on the verge of ending. Global climate change was predicted just this week by a major international figure in ecology to portend the end of human civilization and quite likely the end of the human species, and the situation was stated by Dr. James Lovelock to be irreversible.

But still, what is the strategy of the U.S. Government to deal with these mega-crises? What do they know that they aren’t telling us? What is the President and what is John Kerry and what is Ted Kennedy planning to do to save himself (themselves) at the expense of the American public at large? Was Hurricane Katrina a portent of the era of global climate change, when the poor are left to die first, and then everyone else left to fend for themselves?

What is the plan? What is the democratic way of handling a known mega-crisis? Shouldn’t the public have a say in government strategy, or will the general public be victimized by their rulers and thus subject to the machinations of a police state, spying on their communications, abandonment in emergency settings, etc.?

There is something our government knows; there is something our government is planning; there is something about to happen that they are preparing for and not telling us about. It has little to do with foreign terrorism. Someone is preparing to survive at the expense of someone else.
