Speculations on the Nature of Evil

by Connie Cook Smith


I realize that activists in progressive political and religious movements tend to believe there are no evil souls. My own personal belief is that the eternal essence of a person is the purest energy.

However, the widespread mental and emotional failure of our population to recognize the reality and the dynamics of human beings who choose to be evil is, in my opinion, exactly how evil is prevailing so disastrously.

This failure to understand and recognize the evil-doers right in our midst allows them to run rampant and triumphant. And the reluctance of our citizenry to comprehend this is -- at very least -- driving our once-vibrant middle-class into poverty and despair. At most, it is ruining all of our nation for all of posterity, and wrecking the world as well.

I earnestly believe the only way to stop an accelerating slide into the death of the USA and the deterioration of our planet is to bravely face the reality, presence, and machinations of evil people among us -- and to turn to the helpful awareness and action that "we really do have them outnumbered!"

First, these necessary realizations. (Please think of any individuals or leaders you know who are like this -- maybe a sicko in your family or a psycho who is a leader.)

Evil craves power over others, to provide it a sense of superiority.
Evil overtly uses others, for its own security.
Evil enjoys hurting others. The desire and the power to hurt others is a thrill to Evil.
(Harming includes everything from teasing, controlling, torturing, and of course, killing.)
Good, by contrast, feels that harming others is repulsive and wrong.
Evil has an aggressive agenda, enjoys planning/manipulating to get what it wants from others, or over others.
Evil pretends to look good in order to get what it wants, and therefore tells chronic lies.
Evil makes you doubt Good people in your life, in order to reduce the protection around you.
Evil pretends to do good, pretends to embrace good causes, socially. Evil pretends to help you, personally.
But privately, Evil enjoys sabotaging individuals and causes, behind everyone's back.

Too many people are apparently still too comfortable and therefore don't comprehend mass suffering. Thus they don't bother to reflect upon and come to understand all the Evil that's often behind it. Indeed, Good's fatal flaw is the failure to grasp Evil's enjoyment of doing harm and causing pain.

Thus, Evil has been free to rise to the top of our governments, corporations, military, religions, and many other institutions, as Good -- good people -- naively fail to acknowledge what's really going on and "wonder why everything's gone wrong."

All the lack of earthly progress -- especially all reversals -- of peace, prosperity, healthcare, clean/advanced technology, and universal brotherly love are most often caused by evil persons' deliberate delight at asserting power over others -- and provoking, disrupting, misinforming, assassinating, and otherwise blocking all fronts of human happiness -- for all but themselves and their allies.

Evil people's tiny brains and shriveled hearts -- unfortunately, many of our leaders nowadays -- secretly delight in profiting from bloodshed, chaos, inequality, injustice, disease, poverty, and despair for humanity -- while they enjoy wealth, privilege, safety, freedom, and deeply perverted "fun" for themselves. This paragraph painfully describes our suffering world today.

While these tendencies have always been present on a smaller scale, evil was well on its way to global organization in the previous century. A glimpse of its progress among evil Americans resides in a memo from the U.S. ambassador to Berlin prior to WWII. William E. Dodd wrote in 1937:

"A clique of US industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government, and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime. They extended financial aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there."
American ruling families supporting fascism? Assisting "the bad guys"? Indeed -- as only one example of American Nazi support, it surfaced briefly in the media on October 17, 2003 that George W. Bush's grandfather had his assets seized by Congress on October 20, 1942, due to his decade of money-laundering for Hitler.

Prescott Bush and his Union Banking partners were gung-ho for Adolf, helping to fund Nazi uniforms, arms, and even fuel for their planes. As Ambassador Dodd observed, there were actually a number of American ruling families who outright admired the "superior" Master Race idea and corporate control of society, and they frankly hoped this elitist-traitorous agenda would take hold in America.

They actually attempted a coup, a takeover of FDR and the White House, in the early 1930's. But it failed when the military leader they chose strung them along to determine the plot, then reported and exposed them. Most of their names -- these "American ruling families" -- were kept out of the media (and they were not hanged for treason!) in exchange for their agreement to stop obstructing legislation for programs such as Social Security for the elderly, the poor, and the sick. Their identities do appear, however, in the 1973 book, now re-issued: "The Plot to Seize the White House."

Copious evidence further indicates these evil ones' and their "proud descendants" have given shadow support for, and have experienced benefits from, the assassinations of key anti-war figures -- JFK, MLK, RFK, John Lennon, and others. This is only logical since such fervent peace and pro-humanity leaders directly threaten the evil ones' domination of our world via war, deprivation, and chaos.

And the general-public's failure to grasp the nature of evil further explains why most of the American population still cannot, and will not, comprehend the copious and obvious evidence of September 11th -- that the attacks were planned and carried out by traitors high in our government -- that they did this

1) in order to frame Muslims and thereby justify controlling the Middle East through illegal invasions and brutal war --

and 2) in order to consolidate and advance their crimes in America by means of destroyed records at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center -- plus their post-9/11 "law-making" that ultimately erases the people-protections of the U.S. Constitution.

If we want to honor the souls who so suddenly perished or were grievously injured on 9/11 -- if we want to stop the world going down a darker and ever-darker path -- we need to responsibly wake up to the Truth that a few foreign hijackers could not possibly override every fail-safe within the United States' multi-billion-dollar state-of-the-art defense system -- unless evil men and women at high levels cleared the way and ensured that could happen.

At least now, more and more experts and professionals from the fields of aviation, military, government, engineering, law enforcement, and academia have looked at the evidence and decided "the story we've been told" about what happened that day lacks credibility on all fronts.

But even though we far outnumber them, we are clueless about what to do until we identify them. And we can't identify them until we see that most of the horrible acts, policies, and problems today come not from inexplicable conditions -- but from their high-profile promulgators who actually enjoy and directly profit from human suffering.

Then I think we'll know what to do...!

A 5-minute video illustrates that outright evil men and women are operating under cover of religion in Israel -- and by biblical association -- likewise in the U.S.

Just as insiders have admitted the Bush regime is not really Christian (see below), America needs to know the Israeli government is not really Jewish.

Have you (and most American churches) been duped into believing that American and Israeli leaders are religious -- are “good people” -- and deserve our support?

This is a horrible ploy by global gangsters to use American blood and treasure for their grand scheme of power and profits. Their agenda is resulting in the steady financial impoverishment of the USA and the accelerating disintegration of democracy.

Look at the two matter-of-record reports below:

A former White House official says some of the nation’s most prominent evangelical leaders were regarded in the White House as “the nuts.”

David Kuo of Bush’s Office of Faith-Based Initiatives states: “National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person, and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as ‘ridiculous,’ ‘out of control,’ and just plain ‘goofy,’” Kuo writes in his book, Tempting Faith.

In 2006, Mr. Kuo went public with his insider’s tell-all account that portrays the White House "faith-based" office used almost exclusively to win political points with evangelical Christians…

The office’s stated mission, providing financial support to charities that serve the poor, never got the presidential support it needed…
(link below)


5-min. video -- at 3:45:

Renowned U of I law professor Francis Boyle, to an Israeli official: “I’ve been here a couple of weeks, and it’s clear you people are inflicting Nuremberg crimes on the Palestinians – exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews. What’s your explanation?

“He said, ‘Military necessity.’ (Notice, he didn’t disagree.)

“I told him: ‘That argument was rejected at Nuremberg when the lawyers for the Nazis made it.’

“He said, ‘Well, we have public relations people in the United States, and they handle these matters for us.’ “

(link below)

Likely scenario: after (the decidedly non-religious) Israeli rulers succeed in using American soldiers and funds (our blood and treasure) to wage more war, beyond Iraq -- war upon Iran, Syria, Jordan, etc, in order for Israel/America to own the Middle East -- it is likely that Israel will turn on and oust the U.S., since we'll no longer be needed. Israel alone will control that region and possibly most of the world's oil.

Please read below the long list of Israeli-American dual citizens who have infiltrated high up into our government, and consider distributing this to churches and to all who have not yet realized how long-deceived we have been.

Is this information "anti-semitic?" No. What if all the following high U.S. government positions were filled by Mexicans, for example -- with them running our government for the benefit of Mexico and not for the U.S.? Wouldn't there be an open uproar?

Shouldn't there BE an open uproar against what amounts to our Israeli occupation? Just look at this partial list:

Michael Mukasey
US Attorney General. In position to block investigations and prosecutions of U.S. traitors -- many at high levels of government.

Mukasey was also the judge who ruled favorably for World Trade Center owner Larry Silverstein on his "terrorist attack insurance" -- which he suddenly signed up for 6 weeks before 9/11.

Michael Chertoff
Head of Homeland Security. Widely criticized for inaction during the drownings and other atrocities during Hurricane Katrina.

Reviled as an author of the de-constitutionalizing, un-American "Patriot Act" -- which somehow was all ready to go when 9/11 occurred.

Richard Perle
A key Bush advisor. He was Chairman of the Defense Policy Board from 2001-2003, and member since 1987, long working for favoritism policies for Israel over U.S. interests -- especially beating the drums for invading Iraq.

Perle was expelled from Senator Henry Jackson's office in the 1970's after the National Security Agency (NSA) caught him passing highly-classified documents to the Israeli Embassy.

Paul Wolfowitz
Former Deputy Defense Secretary and member of Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close associate of Perle, and reportedly has close ties to the Israeli military. His sister lives there.

Wolfowitz was the number two leader within the administration behind the Iraq war-mongering. He later was appointed head of the World Bank but resigned under pressure from World Bank members over a scandal involving his misuse of power.

Douglas Feith
Under-Secretary of Defense and Policy Advisor at the Pentagon from 2001-2005. He is a close associate of Perle and served as his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others, Feith is a pro-Israel bulldog. He is closely associated with an extremist group, the Zionist Organization of America, which attacks Jews who don't agree with its extremist views. (He's like the Israeli government -- not the least bit religious.) Feith frequently speaks at ZOA conferences.

Feith was investigated by the FBI under suspicion of leaking classified information to Israel, being that he was Larry Franklin's boss when Franklin leaked documents to indicted spies Rosen and Weissman of AIPAC (American-Israel Public Affairs Committee). For that Feith was forced to leave the National Security Council.

Feith was also investigated by the Senate Intelligence Committee for hyping "intelligence" that was used to justify invading Iraq. The joke around Washington, although not funny, was that Iraq was invaded based on "Feith-based intelligence."

Henry Kissinger
For detailed information about Kissinger's notorious past, read Seymour Hersch's book, "Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House." He consistently advocated going to war against Iraq.

President Bush nominated Kissinger as chairman of the September 11th investigating commission. He later declined this job under enormous protests at his war-criminal past.

"Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of the U.S." -- a political/military bully, not a religious human being. Ariel Sharon is famous for this quote:

"Every time we do something, you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear: don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."-- Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon October 3, 2001(IAP News)

(To repeat, the use of the word "Jewish" deliberately/deceptively implies "religious." Sharon -- in a coma now -- and Gang are Zionists. Zionism is an Israeli agenda to conquer, to own, the Middle East. Many Jews oppose Zionism.)

Dov Zakheim
Dov Zakheim is a co-author of the Project for the New American Century's position paper, a year before 9/11, which advocated the necessity "for a New Pearl Harbor." A terrorist attack was earnestly desired to mobilize America into war with (conquest of) Israel-adjoining territories. (One down -- Iraq -- although it's not going quietly!)

Zakheim was appointed by Bush as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. He was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars.

Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story was buried the next day under 9/11's rubble. The two enormous sums disappeared on Zakheim's watch.

(With the usual smirk, Bush took no action, exacted no accountability, from from his appointees.)

Judicial Inc's bio of Dov tells us Zakheim is a dual Israeli/American citizen who has been tracking the halls of US government for 25 years, casting defense policy-and-influence on Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. Judicial Inc points out that most of Israel's armaments were obtained from the U.S., thanks to him.

How? Squads of US F-16 and F-15 were "re-classified as military surplus" -- and sold to Israel at a fraction of their value. WHY ISN'T THIS MAN IN PRISON??

Speaking of prison:
I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby
Vice President Dick Cheney's ex-Chief of Staff. As fervent pro-Israel advisor to Cheney, it helps explain why Cheney is so gung-ho to invade Iran. Libby is longtime associate of Wolfowitz.

Libby was also a lawyer for convicted felon and Israeli spy Marc Rich, whom Clinton pardoned, in his last days as president.

Libby was found guilty of lying to Federal investigators in the Valerie Plame affair, in which Plame, a covert CIA agent, was "outed" for political revenge by the Bush administration, due to her husband's revelations about the lies leading to the Iraq War.

(Bush has him doing "community service" instead of the prison-time he was sentenced to.)

Libby is also one of a number of right-wing "family values" people -- including Buckley, Liddy, Safire, and Lynne Cheney -- to publish psychologically and sexually sick material. Scooter Libby's 1996 novel is "The Apprentice." It depicts the in-a-cage rape of a little girl by a bear, and men's intercourse with a dead deer, among other horrors.

Marc Grossman
Grossman was Bush's #3 man at the State Department until retiring ("running"?) in 2005, after 29 years in the U.S. government. Grossman is one of many American-Israeli officials that Bush promoted to higher posts.

Grossman has been named in the Sibel Edmonds case (former FBI translator with info on American complicity in 9/11) -- Grossman named as allegedly receiving bribes from Turkish and Israeli agents.

Edmonds further alleges that Grossman was heard on wiretaps as being involved in a scheme to smuggle nuclear secrets to the worldwide nuclear black market.

David Frum
Former White House speechwriter who invented the "Axis of Evil" label. He lumped together all the lies and accusations against Iraq to help Bush justify the war.

Joshua Bolten
White House Chief of Staff since 2006, prominent in the American-Israeli community.

John Bolton
Appointed by Bush as US Representative to the UN when Congress was not in session, because he would not be approved. Served Aug. 05-Dec. 06.

Involved in JINSA, Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, and PNAC, Project for the New American Century -- which advocated "a New Pearl Harbor" in order to invade the Middle East.

Known as "Bomber Bolton" for his extreme statements in favor of invading Iraq.

Other Israeli loyalists in the U.S. government (and there are many more!):
Ken Mehlman, former Bush White House Political Director; Daniel Kurtzer, Ambassador to Israel; Cliff Sobel, Ambassador to the Netherlands; Stuart Bernstein, Ambassador to Denmark; Nancy Brinker, Ambassador to Hungary; Frank Lavin, Ambassador to Singapore; Ron Weiser, Ambassador to Slovakia; Mel Sembler, Ambassador to Italy; Martin Silverstein, Ambassador to Uruguay; Jay Lefkowitz, Bush's Special Envoy to N. Korea, turned down previous West Wing positions, involved in predecessor group to PNAC for invading the Middle East.

Jonathan Jay Pollard, a U.S. Navy counter-intelligence specialist -- an American-Israeli citizen known for stealing more secrets from the U.S. than has any other spy in American history. During his interrogation, Pollard said he felt compelled to serve the "interests of my state" -- he meant the state of Israel. Now serving a life sentence with recommendation against parole.

Lawrence (Larry) Franklin
A former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst with expertise in Iranian policy issues, he worked in the office of Undersecretary of Defense for Douglas Feith -- was sentenced January 20, 2006 "to more than 12 years in prison for giving classified information to an Israeli diplomat" and to members of the pro-Israel lobbying group American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

American Free Press article:
"The Grand jury indictments handed down on Aug. 4, 2005, against a senior Pentagon official and two Washington-based lobbyists linked to Israel paint a grim picture of a much wider espionage ring involving unidentified high level U.S. and Israeli government officials, diplomats and spies.

"We have obtained a copy of that grand jury indictment. The three at the center of the case are: Lawrence Franklin, who held a Top Secret security clearance and worked under the prominent neocon, Douglas Feith, within the office of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld;
Steven J. Rosen, formerly director of foreign policy issues at American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC);
and Keith Weisman, a senior Middle East analyst in the same Washington-based lobby group.

"AIPAC is the most powerful lobby in Washington. This year, Condoleezza Rice was just one of many figures from the Bush administration to attend its annual convention. More than half of Congress was also in attendance.
- - -
Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid, 1/3 of the entire foreign aid budget.

The Israel tail is wagging the American dog, folks. And the dog is dying -- hemorrhaging our blood and treasure for Israel's interests -- not for those of the U.S.

Sharks Got Federal Bail-Out; "Sheriff" Got Federal Investigation; Workers Got Destroyed Lives
(and what have Israel and Manchurian Candidates got to do with it?)

by Connie Cook Smith
As NY attorney general, "Sheriff of Wall Street" Eliot Spitzer actually did prosecute some of the upper echelons of bankers whose Bush-enabled lawlessness was victimizing home owners. That was before this thing got so big that the media cared.

Spitzer brought about some accountability against some Wall Street sharks for "sub-priming," essentially loan-sharking -- but the Bush regime not only made prosecution difficult for him but sometimes totally ineffective, by providing banker buddies outrageous end-runs around the law.

Now that it's boiled over and the tax dollars of many victims have been designated to keep a shark-bank afloat -- insult to injury! -- nevertheless a run on the Bear-Stearns bank has collapsed it. And "the assistants, secretaries and blue-collar guys who keep the building running" have lost everything.

Some long-term nest-eggs of $200,000 -- worked-long-and-hard-for -- are now reduced to only $2,000.

Is federal money pouring in for THEM? No, the bank has hired "grief counselors" to help them just get over it.

Meanwhile, those at the top who have CAUSED this disaster have lost some dough, too. But because they were paid so highly to begin with, they can fall back on numerous other resources that they've been able to accumulate.

Spitzer over the past year was no longer attorney general, but as NY governor he was at least powerfully editorializing against Bush and Buddies who had undermined and blocked accountability -- an accountability under the law that could've stopped the sub-primes from mushrooming to the point where some families are living in campers now -- a burgeoning 21st century version of the 1929 Depression "Hoovervilles" where families had to subsist in tents.

"Coincidentally," all light, noise, and heat was on Spitzer and his sins on the day that billions of our federal dollars were handed to Bear-Stearns -- and shouldn't it be called Shark-Stearns?

The focus on the day he resigned should have been on how BAD these bankers are. My god look at all the devastation to America they are causing! But instead it was, oh look look look at the bad man governor! The governor who, by the way, tried to jail those bankers in the past, and was whistle-blowing on Bush's support for them in the Washington Post in the present.

What a coincidence indeed that the sharks got a federal bail-out, while the "sheriff" got a federal investigation.

Of course Spitzer shouldn't have been so stupid on the personal front.
And the now-arrested Israeli owner of the escort service -- well, that is a whole 'nother story, but here's a hint: a decades-long policy of American politicians being blackmailed to serve Israel's interests, not America's.

And why didn't Spitzer ever prosecute any of the high-level U.S. government and corporate yahoos who made sure the 9/11 attacks destroyed incriminating records and burdensome buildings (and oh yeah thousands of people in order to enrage America enough to invade the Middle East, to control oil -- and as always -- to protect Israel at America's expense).

Spitzer was presented mounds of evidence on all this years ago by the 9/11 Truth movement, but as far as is known, did nothing.

So of course, Spitzer is no angel. But he was at least doing his part years ago to nip the sub-prime disaster in the bud. And when he had to resign as governor, he had just used his clout editorially to expose the Bush-and-Buddies cabal who truly enjoy robbing the poor to give to the rich.

One more thing about Spitzer's Washington Post piece: Nobody read it. Why? On that Valentine's Day, "a sweet guy" who had been bestowed academic honors at Northern Illinois University suddenly drove from downstate back to the school where he was so highly esteemed and went on a shooting-killing rampage.

I've seen speculation before that when really bad news for the bad guys ruining our country and wrecking our world erupts, so suddenly do shooting rampages like Virginia Tech and NIU -- whereupon no other news gets noticed.

Well, Manchurian Candidates are real. Government-hypnotized killers are not fiction. Spitzer's Valentine expose' of Bush got pre-empted. And a month later, his forced resignation got the publicity -- on the same day Bear-Stearns got the money.

Spitzer's Valentine's Day editorial:

From ABC News -- Bear-Stearns Calls In Grief Counselors


Facing the loss of their life savings and very possibly their jobs, employees at investment bank Bear Stearns are turning to trained professionals -- not for financial advice but for psychological counseling.

The company, which collapsed suddenly last week when real estate clients withdrew $17 billion in two days, will provide psychological counselors to help workers handle the news that their plans and perhaps their dreams have abruptly and dramatically changed.

...real estate clients caused essentially a run on the bank last week. Facing the prospect of bankruptcy, Bear CEO Alan Schwartz sold the company to JPMorgan Chase for $240 million, a song compared with its value of $20 billion just three months ago.

Overnight, the stock tumbled and was valued at $2 a piece Monday...about 30 percent of the company, from secretaries to executives, are long-term owners of the shares, leaving people who had recently bought homes or who were looking forward to retirement to radically change their plans. average Bear Stearns employee who had $200,000 in a retirement fund last week now has just $2,000.

False Religion, or False History?

by Connie Cook Smith
According to Mother Jones magazine, Ohio televangelist Rod Parsley is John McCain's "spiritual guide." Rev. Parsley preaches : "...America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion (Islam) destroyed."

Instead of targeting others' religion, the TV preacher ought to rectify his false take on American history. As I wrote to the magazine (expanded version here):

Founding father and president John Adams signed the U.S. Treaty of Tripoli in 1797, after it was unanimously approved by Congress, which was comprised of additional founding fathers. I quote Article 11:

"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion;

as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen (Muslims);

and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan (Mohammedan) nation,

it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

In one fell swoop here, United States law and history inform us that not only does American tradition bear no enmity towards Muslims or their religion -- in total contradiction to Rev. Parsley's claims -- but that our government "is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

This is not a denunciation of Christianity -- it is an affirmation of religious freedom. All citizens are safe and free in their beliefs. And such safety is paramount in a good society.

Along these lines it's also instructive to remember Article VI in our Constitution, which states: "no religious test shall ever be required" for any federal office. This means, for example, a U.S. president can be any religion in the world, or no religion at all. Once again, being safe in one's beliefs was created by our founders as such a hallmark of American freedom that no one can be denied even the presidency on the basis of religion.

Some would say now that "no enmity towards Muslims" was ended by 9/11. But I personally agree with the thousands of high-level professionals from military, government, agency, aeronautical, engineering, and academic fields who've looked into the evidence and concluded that Muslims were framed -- in order to justify U.S. invasions into the oil-rich Middle East.

Meanwhile, Rev. Parsley should apologize -- along with John Hagee and James Dobson and others -- for leading their congregations astray with their "Christian nation" talk. Assigning this country only one religion is something that is fundamentally opposed to our founders' vision of American freedom.

And Mr. McCain and his aging brain? I fear it's time for him to shuffle off to a nursing home or other care center, where his erratic temper and increasingly poor judgment won't be able to harm this nation and the world.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

- - -

Now it's all over the news that Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is also a presidential candidate, has an eight-generations-ago ancestor in common with Vice-President Dick Cheney.

I just love these findings which keep us reminded that, according to the Constitution, "all persons born" or naturalized in the United States are full-rights citizens. And according to the Declaration of Independence, all are supposed to be equal.

But the story of an inherent equality between a black Senator and a white Vice-President doesn't end there. An earlier news item in the Chicago Sun Times, September 9th, states it has been discovered that Obama and President Bush ALSO are cousins, going back 11 generations to their common ancestor in Massachusetts.

Even though it is more clear than ever there never has been legal justification for discriminating against people on the basis of race, it's hard not to laugh at Obama's campaign spinning it this way: "Obviously, Dick Cheney is sort of the black sheep of the family."

What has not been reported, though, is the possible significance of the Bush-Obama ancestor's name. The Sun Times states these two illustrious men share the same great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents -- Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole Hinckley of 17th century Massachusetts. Does the name Hinckley ring a bell?

That name has been stuck in my craw for two decades, because when John Hinckley Jr shot President Reagan, the American people were not told the truth about all the alarming connections between the Hinckley family and the Bush family. Why alarming? Because Bush Sr would have defaulted into the presidency in 1981 if Hinckley Jr's murder-attempt had been successful.

The media at the time said the Hinckley and Bush families "barely know each other," but that was blatantly untrue. And while we were thrown red-herring stories that sensationally focused on Hinckley Jr's supposed obsession with actress Jodie Foster, the American people were not being told what they really needed to know.

Now that it's known there is a Bush-Hinckley bloodline connection -- and the elite families in America DO make a point of knowing their genealogy -- the Hinckley shooting of Ronald Reagan takes on even more potential significance.

John Hinckley Sr nominated George Bush Sr for president at the 1980 Republican convention, but Reagan got it instead and Bush became vice-president. Oilmen and Houston neighbors such as the Bushes and the Hinckleys had not wanted Reagan and his anti-corporate-favoritism attitudes in office, and Bush did not want to wait until 1988 for a chance at the presidency. But there it was, Bush was only VP -- although also known as "a heartbeat away from the presidency."

Two months after Reagan took office, Hinckley's son shot him and nearly killed him. Was the young man crazy about Jodie Foster, or was he obsessed with eliminating the obstacle to his dad's choice-for-president?

A further disturbing connection was that Hinckley Jr had worked at his dad's "World Vision" camp, an organization depicted as "the world's largest Christian relief agency." There, young Hinckley befriended Mark David Chapman, who also worked there. Chapman went on to shoot John Lennon in December of 1980, and then Hinckley shot Reagan three months later. Both were carrying the book, "A Catcher in the Rye," which some say is used to condition young men to kill.

Does anybody else get the creeps that two young men from an agency -- where Bush-buddy Hinckley Sr was president -- became assassins within months of each other? And CURRENTLY creepy to me were some Canton businesses on October 16th asking customers if they want to contribute $1.00 to World Food Day, World Vision's fundraiser. I said, "No thanks," and probably should have added, "I'm not sure what the money will REALLY sponsor!" More coincidental assasins?

It gets worse. The day after Reagan's shooting, a bewildered John Chancellor announced on the news that the vice-president's son and the shooter's brother had a dinner party scheduled "for this evening, but the event is now cancelled."

Ya think?! Had they planned to celebrate something? Mr. and Mrs. Scott Hinckley were scheduled as guests of Mr. and Mrs. Neil Bush -- but the media still insisted the families barely knew each other, and went back to chasing down Jodie Foster. You know, "look over here, don't look over there!"

And meanwhile, a friend of mine who worked as a policy analyst in the Reagan-Bush White House noted that George Bush Sr "looked awfully green around the gills" as The Gipper continued not to die, and as a few drops of the Bush-Hinckley closeness dribbled into public awareness. Bush wouldn't publicly comment, and his press secretary stonewalled with "I don't know a damn thing about it."

I think those few drops of information about a Bush-Hinckley party scheduled for the day after the shooting should have become a tsunami of an investigation into what was really going on. I sincerely believe that certain elite Americans long ago should have been thrown into prison instead of thrust into power. And I grieve for my country which ignores all the Bush and Bin Laden connections that have caused us to go down the darkest and most dangerous road we've ever known.

Harry Potter Fiction in the U.K.
Clues People In to Evil in the U.S.

by Connie Cook Smith

How amazing to read the account from a grown reporter at a local newspaper -- all caught up in the excitement of the final Harry Potter book. That's what I thought at first. But after looking into the phenomenon from an educational perspective, I get it! I now see how Potter fans have good reasons for their enthusiasm.

When the first book came out, there were such critical matters of life and death going on close to me that I was not attracted to a novel about such realities, nor did I have time for it, for years.

And the brief excerpt I had read in a magazine deeply alarmed me. Harry's arch-nemesis Voldemort was a character was so murderously evil that I thought it was wrong to expose child readers to such darkness.

That was 10 years ago. As my dear husband's long recovery sidelined us from most activities outside the house, we both turned to the computer to "get a life." What a blessing that on the worldwide web, we could "go" anywhere day or night for our educational searches.

There was my own never-ending quest to understand "why the world is the way it is" -- such as, where is all the humanitarian progress so glowingly predicted in the 1950's and '60's? What happened to the end of war, famine, poverty, and disease that seemed so reasonably within reach in the prosperous times after WWII? This is where my real-world quest links up with the value of the fictional Harry Potter saga.

As declassified documents became available online, as voices with no previous outlets began to spill the beans, as government operatives retired and published online essays and hardcopy books about vast government deceptions against the American people, I recalled the shocking level of Voldemort's evil in Harry Potter.

I began to be able to get my mind around the reality of evil in the U.S. -- because it had been so well presented in fiction in the U.K. I suddenly understood Walter Lippman's famous comment: "The news and the truth are often two different things."

I think now that too many baby-boomers who grew up in "Happy Days America" are locked in a La-La Land that we did indeed experience, but which entirely omitted the dark side of the coin that people need to know in order to protect themselves, their children, and their nation.

And then their children grew up in the same blissful ignorance -- plus more sports, music, and entertainment distractions than the world has ever seen before.

Enter the Harry Potter mania: books avidly read by adults and children alike. The author grew up immersed in the more realistic perspectives of Britain's often bloody and sinister history, which results in a wisdom significantly deeper than we're blessed with here.

UNLESS -- you, too, wonder what happened to the promise of America and seek to absorb the declassified documents. Unless you, too, learn of the covert crimes that gangsters in our government have been committing for decades, at home and abroad.

The hard part has been believing that level of Evil is real. I had always thought atrocities came from people who were just out of their minds, and were rather isolated incidents at that. The shocking truth is, though, that highly focused evil people do exist, that they get thrills (and profits!) from causing harm and sorrow and death, and that their long-term goal to rise to the top of the American system has been almost entirely realized.

For example, certain ones in power right now have been cycling in and out of positions in the White House, Congress, and the Pentagon for over 30 years!

And this has nothing to do with Republican or Democrat. Both of those affiliations are simply used as platforms from which these powerful profiteers enjoy spouting patriotic rhetoric and slogans, then laugh behind closed doors at the increasingly impoverished and sacrificed state of the American people.

The media noted after the September 11th attacks that youngsters who were Harry Potter fans handled the shock better than their parents, who weren't clued-in to ever expect such a thing. And now many of those fans are significant hounds of justice who know that evil -- true to form -- disguises itself. Evil too often infiltrates your life as that which you always trusted most, including pedophile priests and "patriotic" politicians.

Worse, especially in the political practicality of Who Rules, government gangsters plan and carry out the atrocities, then frame up others as the culprits -- whereupon we submit our blood and treasure to attack and occupy the innocent people they want us to. This supreme dirty trick is no secret, especially since Marine hero Gen. Smedley Butler published his "War is a Racket" pamphlet in 1935, widely available online.

It's time to grow up, America, to become as mature as the kids who read Harry Potter. We've got to recognize the evil ones whom we've foolishly believed, and put in charge of our nation -- and by default -- in charge of the world. The Constitution allows us to remove them from power! Then we must be wise and understand that deceitful ones will always try to deliberately create this world's wars and diseases and poverty conditions again.

For newbies: if you doubt it's all been deliberate, many sources other Gen. Butler above will enlighten you. Type in "killing hope" in your search engine, for ex-CIA William Blum's work. Read John Perkins "Confessions of an Economic Hitman." Search 9/11 Truth. We must wake up and shake off all this evil! There are millions of us and only thousands of them!

But do expose it and overturn it -- and I do refer to the REAL evil behind 9/11.

Enter, Dr. David Ray Griffin. He has a wry intellect that knows how to hunt down, round up, and HANG every one of the lies our government has told us about the September 11th attacks.

He is a distinguished theologian "whose cross-disciplinary specialization involves highly sophisticated reasoning that requires familiarity with logic, science, and the scientific method."

Thanks to Dr. Griffin's concise talks on brief videos, and his superb books crammed with incontrovertible facts, it may happen that actual hangings or other methods of legal execution for treason will occur in our not-too-distant future. If truth and justice prevail, we probably will have our own version of "Judgment at Nuremberg," wherein high-level American officials are called to account for their crimes against their own nation and all humanity.

My own research and talks on audio CDs -- "A Somber Awakening" in 2003, and "U.S. Terror Attacks: Portal to Understanding" in 2004 -- document how outright evil men have worked their way to the top of the American system over the past 30-40 years. (Links below.)

Now Dr. Griffin's new book -- "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" -- exposes how these men have manipulated our nation into believing blatantly silly stories whose results are not silly at all, but infinitely tragic:

Framing Muslims to justify U.S. invasions, our soldiers killing and being killed for false reasons, our most basic Constitutional protections ended. Such as? Opening your mail and search-and-seizure of your home don't need a warrant now. And your right to a lawyer can be "legally" denied while you are held who-knows-where, and your loved ones can't even find you.

Thanks to the American evildoers in our government and their "war-on-terror" against us -- which means endless wars and suffering for us, endless profits and pleasures for them -- "a man's home is his castle" is now only for privileged insiders. And in cahoots with corporate creatures who prey upon "the American dream," it's become painfully clear your castle is increasingly unaffordable.

Why? Listen to Dr. Griffin online, the instructions are below. Or for the deepest understanding of how this dreadful state in America has come about, obtain and read his new book. You will probably experience what one reader's review states:

"For over 5 years, I've been blind. For 5 years I've been down-and-out lied to. Right under our noses, America has been stolen by criminals... Read this book, it could be the most important thing you ever do."

To order it online, go to, or Barnes & Noble, or Borders, and type in David Ray Griffin under "search." You will find "Debunking" amidst his other helpful books.

To watch and hear Dr. Griffin's free presentation of our false beliefs about 9/11, and how his logical precision proves the fallacies of each one, type Google Video into your search engine, then type into their search box: 911 The Myth and the Reality.

The powerful introduction on who Griffin is, and his two talks that follow, are among the most intelligent presentations in existence!
